I am an atheist at heart.  Perhaps more of an agnostic, for I do wish that magic or monsters were true, but in reality I know they do not.  I am entirely opposed to the Judeo-Christian God (though years of English classes have ingrained the use of a capital G), but certain philosophies, like Taoism, hold interest for me.

I came across a quote, a succinct rebuttal to any who would argue about religion and try to convince me that their god is the right one, and I’d like to share it with anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation:

“I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”

-Stephen F Roberts
