That anybody reveres this book is the only miracle.

Yes

I was in a pub today and the barmaid asked me “What is your favourite word?” I was stumped. She said hers is ‘serendipity’ at the moment, but it changes from time to time.

Nice vibe. I'll remember that. Smile

D.

Like Dworkin's barmaid (wish I met barnaids like that) "serendipity" is my favourite word also.

I like the sound of it and, very much, especially in the sense of a "happy accident". Had many of those: got lost in a strange town and found a great shop of some sort (second hand books, war surplus, charity, jokes, scientific toys etc), a mistake in making something produces something equally as good, but different, or sparks off a new idea . . .

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Atheism is an organic end result of these three and by focusing on them we indirectly promote atheism as well as countless other positive things, where as promoting atheism without those things is largely useless.

This is definitely worth remembering.
