What besides this can we atheists do for humankind?

We can enjoy our freedom from shit, too.

Thanks, Ruth.

In the late 1960s my wife was teaching comprehensive sex ed in fifth grade in Austin, Texas.

We moved to Phoenix and a few years later, the xians took over Texas and installed abstinence-only sex ed.

If there's a better reason for resisting xianity than the damage they do to sex education, I haven't yet found it.

Yes, thanks, Ruth; great advice there!

I wrote a bit of a soapbox yesterday in another discussion, about sex education threatening conservative religions' control mechanisms. (And I quoted a satirical poster, "We should ban life jackets and other flotation devices. They only encourage risky behavior. The only 100% effective way to prevent drowning is total abstinence from going in the water.")

Oh, and let's not forget safe driving, either:

Perfect analogy! I saved that cartoon. Thanks!

I did read an article advocating an explicit goal of zero traffic fatalities, to be achieved not by banning driving, but mostly by lower speed limits.

Yeah, going for an absolute goal like that is pretty ridiculous.  Even at 45 mph, you're going to have a few fatalities, from time to time ... probably at 35.  I'm not doing a cross-country road trip at 35 mph.

I think the article did suggest a speed of 45 mph for highways.

We (myself included!) are so used to our accustomed driving speeds -- that usually do feel safe -- that most of us would strongly resist a mandate that would almost double our travel times.

Taking a tangent to another aspect of safe driving, VW had a powerful public-service ad / commercial in Beijing movie theaters:
