An atheist’s prayer

 

 

Here we are …

No matter how long we live

None of us will live forever.

The inevitable stops us dead

And there’s nothing more beyond.

Here we are, nonetheless …

Thank God!

As an atheist, I feel no need to pray.

Well said, Philip! Last line says is the kicker.
I recall a long philosophical conversation with friends that
concluded with one pounding the table and declaring, "Thank God I
am an atheist!"
And so the unending controversy abides...

Interesting view. Was talking about atheism with some friends recently.

Nice try, (atheists), but eternity with God offers a more burning desire to help, a hope for the future, a yearning and expectation of ....eternity with Him
