Last night I had a dream where I was on set watching Brad Pitt do a scene where he gets shot. Except it happened to be a real bullet and he died. Fucking seriously. I’ve actually been on set with him (I was an extra in Mr & Mrs Smith) but only for a few hours. I recall being disturbed by witnessing this and couldn’t believe it.
Why am I an atheist? I ask you: Why is anybody not an atheist? Everyone starts out being an atheist. No one is born with belief in anything. Infants are atheists until they are indoctrinated. I resent anyone pushing their religion on me. I don’t push my atheism on anybody else. Live and let live. Not many people practice that when it comes to religion.
“God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.”—Thomas Jefferson
