As for the frequent claim that atheists cannot (or should not) celebrate Thanksgiving because we have no god to thank, I think this ranks up there with some of the stupidest things I can recall hearing from Christians. Of course atheists can be thankful! Many of are thankful for every day of our lives. We have people to thank. You know, people who actually exist and do positive things in our lives. Imaginary beings are not needed.
