Christopher Hitchens

Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.

Mathew Inman

you are a bag of meat sitting on a rock in outer space and someday you will die and you are completely powerless, helpless and insignificant in the wake of this beautiful cosmic shitstorm we call existence.  

With apologies to The Oatmeal.

Atheist's Grace

Lets give thanks.
We are thankful for:
  • The food before us and to all those who worked to provide it
  • The shelter over our head and to all those who worked to provide it
  • Our health and to all those who work to keep us well
We remember
  • There are those without food and go hungry each day
  • There are those without shelter and seek it each day
  • There are those who suffer illness and seek aid each day
We are reminded that life is fragile, and to make the most of each day.
