I'm just glad we did away with all that faith in a Supreme Being and other rubbish. Who needs it? We'll just rely on man's better angels to keep civilization together.

Near the end of the Roman Empire, the hardest of the hardcore atheists was frantically scrambling to reinstate religious ceremonies and observances. People who had advocated the secular worldview all their lives donated huge sums of their own money to try to rebuild the temples and restore the monuments of deities. Why do you think that was?
They had seen the animal man begin to remove his mask. That's why. They had begun to see what was behind that mask. They crapped their togas and cartwheeled their arms desperately trying to bring back what they had been instrumental in destroying. All too little, too late of course. They had gotten exactly what they claimed they wanted. As the shadows of the mob surrounded them with their long knives, they cried out to appeal to their "better natures." Then they were lost in the sea of blades and sliced to ribbons.
I was an atheist for sixteen years. I was temporary treasurer for the New York Secular Humanists Society until a certified accountant could be found to replace me. (I could only access the account with the signatures of two chairmen but still, it shows you I was considered a solid member in standing.)
Listen to me. THERE IS NOBODY DUMBER THAN AN ATHEIST. THEY ARE SLACK JAWED, DRIBBLING MORONS WHO THINK THEY KNOW EVERYTHING, WHEN IN FACT THEY KNOW LESS THAN ANYBODY ELSE ON THE PLANET ABOUT ANYTHING.
