Unbelief has driven your soul but you still got
Spencer Carlson

I hate my life is written on the pavement again
Like a chalk outline of his hope that died long ago
All the appointments and disappointments are a battle for his joy
All the loss and resignation have stained his soul
The warmth hugs him on his way to work
And the stars sing to him at night
Yet all he sees is his home empty and dark
And he's waiting for something to change his life

And his confidence goes where his confidence comes from
And his confidence goes where his confidence comes from

You've been trying to be big in the eyes of the world
But this world leaves you to do life all on your own
Just because you've been abandoned doesn't mean you are alone
Unbelief has driven your soul but you still got a home

And you confidence goes where your confidence comes from
And you confidence goes where your confidence comes from
And you happiness goes where your happiness comes from
And you confidence goes where your confidence comes from

You don't have to be right
Wouldn't it be nice to put your guard down
You don't have to be busy
Wouldn't it be nice to slow down
You don't have to be perfect
Wouldn't it be nice to know
You don't have to be anything this world wants you to be
You don't have to do it on your own
You don't have to do it on your own

Evangelical atheism is almost as stupid as Jews for Jesus.

This is a real movement with atheist zealots trying to proselytize believers. I guess when they die and turn to nothing, they want company ;)
.

Even an atheist
must take a giant leap of faith
to believe the elaborate myth
he's preaching.

I never look at my mail just in case there may be a bill inside.
I reckon if I don't see it with my own eyes, I don't owe nobody nuthin' ~
sorta like the philosophy of atheists.

Some atheists are bewildered that a person of my
'intelligence and education' can believe in so primitive
and illogical a fairy-tale called God.

Listen up, ingrates ~ I mean atheists
.
Though born an Orthodox Jew,
I follow no formal religion.
I wake up every morning,
look out of window,
take a deep breath and say,
'Thank you, God.'
God for me is a deep feeling,
not an observable, measurable fact
limited to a limited number of senses.

God need be nothing more
than your existential GPS
to navigate this awesome world
with gratitude.


Just follow that Golden Rule,
give thanks
and you're on the road to fulfillment.

Don't wait for Heaven ~
just listen to your GPS:
'You have arrived.'

only the believer
exits.

The atheist is in hell.
The agnostic is in purgatory.
And, God, the Omnipotent Bartender,
is having 2 fingers of Southern Comfort, neat.

I can't understand how atheists can get so upset
by something that doesn't exist.
It like me wanting to punch Santa
in his imaginary fat fucking face.

There is no God, period.

There are no Atheists, semi-colon.

Sure, that makes no sense ~
but it has that certain ring of truth!

This is not to say there aren't millions of wonderful atheists with ethics and integrity who practice the Golden Rule ~
and millions of hypocritical religious fanatics who don't practice a fucking word they preach ~
so don't get too smug!

Which's better blind faith or blind unbelief? Where's blind love?
Wuthering Heights

Which's better blind faith or blind unbelief? Where's blind love?
