ATHEISTS, I Love Ya!
32c worth of chemicals
Like me, you're scared silly of God, and therefore dig deep for dirt on Him. This is excellent, 'cause it saves me the trouble (notice I have 2 of your blogs on my blogroll).
But you guys! You can't escape religion!
It's a default condition!
Religion is just "... how we choose to understand the most important events in our life. Birth, death, charity, compassion, sacrifice, joy, love, home, community and sustenance. Do we see a distant father? A loving mother? A family of ancestors? A kind teacher? A great warrior? (Jason at Wildhunt.org, 4.17.2005)."
In place of Mother or Father, I suspect you see Inanimate Universe. Birth? 32c worth of chemicals in a jar suddenly springing into life. Death? Said chemicals seeping back into soil. Love? No such thing; your groove with others is to study them -- at a distance. Emotion? Blocks your "objectivity" and so is your Deep Sin?
