"I don't think these doctrines are right, but I love Christmas carols."

While I would never submit to using a term as naff as Atheism 2.0, I do think Alain de Botton is on to something here. I don’t subscribe to theism of any kind, but I do find some of the history and ritual fascinating, and respect the community and charity facets which are often attached (though not, I think, inherent) to religions.
