Imagine No Religion
Hardly the time for this post, you say? I beg to differ! Plus,I got some good news, too:You can still enjoy Xmas even if you convert to atheism:most parts of the traditions and rituals of Christmas can be traced back to older traditions and religions, so why pretend anyway?
But what do I know?I am but a humble cartoonist, and this lot often has a tendency of undermining higher authorities.Why not hear "the case for atheism" straight from the writings of an established scientist?
Enter Richard Dawkins, author of "the God Delusion",an outright polemic against any and all religion.Mr. Dawkins pulls no punches:he is lately of the opinion that it's not enough anymore to just mind your own business,but urges instead every atheist to "come out of the closet",clear the smear that society currently puts on anyone who can't just accept "Divine Will",(whatever the warring fractions inside each religion decide it is), and fight the good fight of genuine Free Will.
You can take a glimpse in his site, and decide for yourself if atheism is the thing for you, if you prefer milder middle grounds like "agnosticism",or if you prefer to honor baby Jesus through mostly Pagan traditions.
Whatever you choose,try not to force it on your fellow man at gunpoint,and maybe we'll find some common ground!
