.....I have found my trust better placed in two things: the skill and principle of advanced medical science, and the comradeship of innumerable friends and family, all of them immune to the false consolations of religion. It is these forces among others which will speed the day when humanity emancipates itself from the mind-forged manacles of servility and superstitition. It is our innate solidarity, and not some despotism of the sky, which is the source of our morality and our sense of decency.I've found that innate solidarity too, and oddly with many believers instead of the Atheists who can seem a little full of themselves at time. None the less, it is our innate solidarity that's the source.
