Who Cares? . . . Nobody.


For several years now I have been trying to judiciously sort through all the trashy input I've received over the course of my lifetime (so far) and come to some acceptable conclusion as to what I am.

As I have said and written many times, I am not an atheist. But neither am I a card-carrying theist.

But, why must I be something? Why can I not just keep my mouth shut and my keyboard inactive about the whole idea of religion? After all, nobody really cares what I believe or do not believe. And why should they?

Boy, am I ever glad that's settled.

I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water.
--D. H. Lawrence
