The Atheist's Prayer

Our brains, which art in our heads,
treasured be thy name. Thy reasoning
come. Thy best you can do be done
on earth as it is. Give us this day new
insight to help us resolve conflicts and
ease pain. And lead us not
into supernatural explanations;
deliver us from denial of logic.
For thine is the kingdom of reason,
and even though thy powers are limited,
and you're not always glorious,
you are the best evolutionary adaptation
we have for helping this earth now and
forever and ever.
So be it.


Or a plain version:

Very well done. I feel like I need to remember this by heart or something.
