The idea for this room is to highlight the genius of the unwieldy name: a place to share and discuss content about issues of atheism/agnosticism/secular humanism from a truly skeptical and non-religious point of view.
It's difficult to label lack of belief (much like "not collecting stamps" doesn't work as a hobby). Names like "brights" are kind of lame, and neither "skeptic" nor "atheist" is comprehensive enough. Maybe AASFSHNR will catch on?

Does common every day faith exist? I am not talking about religious faith or a belief in any sort of supernatural beings or deities. Or even a belief in an afterlife. I am talking about ordinary every day beliefs in things for which you have no proof, common to the events of everyday life. Looking for answers from atheists only, please.
"God's word is true. I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell. And it's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior." –Congressman Paul Broun, M.D.
