Atheist's Prayer

I consider the turning to prayer, the disposition toward prayer, a responsibility.

But it is a responsibility gladly and almost effortlessly borne.

Praying is, then, like having good manners, like being civil with the universe; like knowing how to receive a gift graciously.

In order to receive our birthright, our blessing and our gift, we must fulfill the gentle obligation of prayer.

On the other hand, you are quite free to take it or leave it. People have gone through life and will continue to go through life without the slightest notion of what I am talking about. It would be presumptuous to judge them.

Centre for Naturalism

 The Center for Naturalism promotes science-based naturalism as a comprehensive worldview - a rational and fulfilling alternative to faith-based religions and other varieties of supernaturalism. The under-standing that we are fully natural beings is the foundation for an effective approach to personal and social concerns, and highlights our intimate connection to the awe-inspiring universe described by science. Through its educational activities and initiatives, the Center develops constructive applications of naturalism, supports progressive social policy, and in collaboration with other secular groups, helps to build a community of naturalists.
