Roger Zelasny's Agnostic Prayer

Insofar as I may be heard by anything, which may or may not care what I say, I ask, if it matters, that you be forgiven for anything you may have done or failed to do which requires forgiveness. Conversely, if not forgiveness but something else may be required to insure any possible benefit for which you may be eligible after the destruction of your body, I ask that this, whatever it may be, be granted or withheld, as the case may be, in such a manner as to insure your receiving said benefit. I ask this in my capacity as your elected intermediary between yourself and that which may not be yourself, but which may have an interest in the matter of your receiving as much as it is possible for you to receive of this thing, and which may in some way be influenced by this ceremony. Amen.

I am an Atheist because I see no reason to believe in the existence gods.



There are a lot of things that can be explained in ways that feature supernatural beings, but so far I have not found a single one that cannot be adequately explained without them, or that makes me feel that it will never be adequately explained in a non-supernatural context. What is more, I find that explanations that do not have any supernatural components are more useful than the ones that do, for the simple… Continue

Greetings, Matt! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus for almost a year. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

Yes, you are right. Religion is a great fraud.
