Equal opportunity, all religions, seriously, go fuck yourselves and leave me alone. P.S. the rest of the modern world thinks we're a bunch of backwards asswipes on par with the sharia motherfuckers with all this God this and God that in our public discourse. We may have got it from them originally, but they've moved on. Time for us to do the same.
I hear ya, Doc, and my goddam Facebook page requires an occasional cleansing, because some of my various acquaintances are more religious than are others, and they clearly feel the need to blare out their convictions with the wild, pealing ferocity of Maynard Ferguson abusing a trumpet.
But, next to the Very Religious, ya wanna know who's responsible for the next-heaviest amount of Facebook litter?
Speaking as a guy who is neither religious nor atheistic (you'll just have to take my word for it,) I've observed that, generally speaking, the atheists are just as guilty (maybe more guilty) of over-sharing their point-of-view as are the religious, and not only are they just as nauseatingly loud about their feelings, they compound the offensive smuggery; where the religious imply that the non-religious are wrong, the atheists add "stupid."
I mean, what the fuck? Is it possible to be a "practicing atheist?" Isn't that sorta self-contradictory?
Now Doc, don't take this personally, especially since you didn't actually declare yourself to be an atheist, but Hey, you atheists out there? Fuck you guys, too. I'd like for you motherfuckers to shut the fuck up just as badly as I wish the same of the religious.
I don't give a flying fuck what any of you think, believe, or feel. There's a whole pile of cosmological shit that interests me, it even fascinates me, and a huge part of its charm is that I Do Not Know. I don't want
to know, goddamit, it's the mystery that makes
it fascinating, and all of the loudmouths who seem to be accessing some kind of weird gratification from advertising their religion, lack thereof, or general refusal to consider anything that cannot be explained are making way
too much fuckin' noise.
I'm trying to contemplate the inherently divine nature of my own little corner of the Great Nothingness, and every time I lift my furrowed, world-weary brow, one of you engoddened or godless motherfuckers is runnin' yer goddam yaps.

As a ravine dweller I can confirm this.
