Random Quote #87 topic: atheism, Wayne Aiken's atheism cookie file

"A world filled with wonder
a cold fathomless sky
a man's life so meager he can but wonder why
he cries out to heaven, its truth to reveal
the answer only silence for God isn't real

Go ask the starving millions under Stalin's cruel reign
go ask the child with cancer who eases her pain
and go to your churches if that's how you feel
but don't ask me to follow for God isn't real

He forms in his image a weak and foolish man
speaks to him in symbols that few understand
for a life of devotion the death blow he deals
we owe him only hatred but God isn't real

Go tell the executioner of the power he can't defy
go tell his shackled victim of the mercy on high
and go to your churches go beg, pray and kneel
but don't ask me to follow for God isn't real
No - no matter how he should be - God isn't real.
[Robbie Fulks, "God Isn't Real" from his
album- Let's Kill Saturday Night (1998)]
