“Atheism is more than just the knowledge that gods do not exist, and that religion is either a mistake or a fraud. Atheism is an attitude, a frame of mind that looks at the world objectively, fearlessly, always trying to understand all things as a part of nature.”
In essence I must agree with the above quote for this world; the world that we have today needs clearly defined lines between which to colour. It, I believe, will lead us down the clearest path to reason and that, above all, should be our mantra. Without reason, the willingness to question, there is not a lot of hope for humanity.
However, when reason is our main course there is such wonder and awe in our natural Garden-Universe that we will find there is no room for tiny fractious gods and superstitions invented centuries ago by flawed old men.
