THE ATHEIST'S CREED by English Journalist, SteveTurner.

We believe in Marx, Freud and Darwin. We believe everything is okay as long as you don’t hurt anyone, to the best of your definition of hurt and to the best of your definition of knowledge. We believe in sex before, during and after marriage. We believe in the therapy of sin, that adultery is fun and we believe that taboos are taboo. We believe that everything is getting better despite evidence to the contrary. Evidence must be investigated and you can prove anything with evidence. We believe there is something in horoscopes, UFOs and bent spoons. Jesus was a good man just like Buddha, Mohammed and ourselves. He was a good moral teacher although we believe that some of his good morals were really bad. We believe that all religions are basically the same. They all believe in love and goodness and only differ on matters of creation, sin, heaven, hell, God and salvation. We believe that after death comes the nothing because when you ask the dead what happens they say nothing! If death is not the end, and the dead have lied, then it’s compulsory heaven for all excepting perhaps Hitler, Stalin and Genghis Khan. We believe in Masters and Johnson, what’s selected is average, what’s average is normal what’s normal is good. We believe in total disarmament because we believe there are direct links between warfare and bloodshed. Americans should beat their guns into tractors and the Russians would be sure to follow. We believe that man is essentially good, it’s only his behaviour that let’s him down. This is the fault of society, society is the fault of conditions and conditions are the fault of society. We believe that each man must find the truth that is right for him and reality will adapt accordingly. The universe will re-adjust, history will alter. We believe that there is no absolute truth except in the truth that there is no absolute truth. We believe in the rejecting of truth and the flowering of individual thought.

Post Script
If chance be the father of all flesh, disaster is his rainbow in the sky, and when you hear: ‘state of emergency’, ‘sniper kills ten’, ‘troops on rampage’, ‘youths go looting’, ‘bomb-blast school’, it is but the sound of man worshiping his maker.
