I couldn't agree more with your point of view. I am 13 years of age (I go to a catholic primary school) and i see through the bullshit even though its up past my head. Its just the basic stuff like adam and eve or the fact that they have no proof of any kind of God or savior. Dont get me wrong I believe in the basic messages of the catholic religion such as. Treat others as you want to be treated but the rest of it is either to gain power or money.

I applaud for writing this blog

Im angry that I wasted my time reading this when I can read something good by Bertrand Russell

If there was a "Like" button at the bottom of your piece, I'd click it a million times. :)

I am not sure what is worst – a right-wing, bible thumping redneck or an angry atheist with an axe to grind. You are both equally annoying. Seriously, get over yourselves, you’re not that important.

Nancy Santiago

Exquisitely displayed...yes, we have tons of reasons to be angry. What religions have done to this world through indoctrination and the power collective ignorance gives them is nothing to celebrate about! Somehow I wish to be alive to witness big changes. Thank you for the anger. As you masterfully wrote, it is the power behind the motor of this vehicle, if we are to get somewhere....on this "THANKSGIVING" day....THANK YOU!

You forgot to be angry about the hypocrisy of claiming to be Christian while sending young people off to war to kill and be killed; and executing criminals; when Jesus specifically spoke against such things.

Chuck Darwin

Thank you for this. Wonderful post.

Jane

Thank you, Greta. I'm a former Christian fundamentalist and now blog on coming out. I'm sorry for the hate directed at you by deluded, angry Christians. Thank you for continuing to write.

I thoroughly enjoyed this post. I'm working/walking through anger about Christianity, believer's who are puppets, and all the dogma/guilt I subjected upon myself or allowed others to impose, dictate as truths, and the "godly" stink eye I received when I questioned things that didn't add up. I just wrote a post on my blog a few days ago about finding my freedom to detach myself from old belief systems of religion. It was a very brave step in my process. To voice it & not care what people (I at one time shared the same beliefs with) thought about me was a huge step for me. Those sticky fingers of fear can take time to break free of. Your post confirmed I'm on the right path.

I am, most importantly, lovingly allowing myself to experience my anger. Not shelve it. Not succumb to fears taught to me if I stepped outside of the "fold". To not be afraid to express & believe I have everything inside me to manifest/create/change my life as I want it to be. I alone am responsible for the quality of my life. This new found ability to look at my anger about religion & religious mindsets has become a spring board to launch myself into true freedoms I never experienced in any organized religion & I've jumped head first into many. Organized religions are all cults in my opinion.

Thank you for articulating so many points about anger I hadn't been able to pinpoint within myself regarding god, religion and "truths" crammed down our throats. When I think about hell, I see it as a condition people create for themselves by believing such crap/lies they've been told and the narrow minded prisons they make for themselves when they buy into said crap. Heaven always seemed like a boring place to end up in. I'd rather believe life, in any form, is a process in which we get to have as many "do-over's" as we need to get it "right" What's right for you may not be the lesson I'm working on at the time. Eventually, we will all get it right, especially if we have the freedom and guts to do it our way as individuals not sheep.

I am waking up. Awakening to who I am. Loving me--loving you is key. We're all connected even if the walk is a solo journey to reconnect. Thank you for re-posting this article. It came at a time I needed to read it. Anger is a great fuel to change within. I can't change others. Only myself.

Just watched your presentation on Skekpticon 4. Just wanted to say I enjoyed it immensely. Thank you . . .

Wow - you are really really angry. I get angry when people call me an atheist when I am really a pantheist.

Lisa Schmidt

Geat post, thanks! Come to western Canada. You'll like it here...it's very secular. :D

Nicole

Beautiful.

Nikolas Alepis

haha, great reading, I very much enjoyed your thoughts Greta!
...you almost got me.. angry :)
cheers!

yalaclaus

Wow, I agree with many of the points you've made madam. However not all of us believers are like the ones you've mentioned, so I hope you're not angry at the few of us who're perfectly okay with you believing in whatever it is you want to believe in.

The few of us who don't want to impose anything on anyone, the few of us who also can't stand other arrogant believers, so much so that we even avoid going to church (trust me, there are "believers" that sin worse than a lot of atheists and still dare to parade their "holiness") and just pray at home with our bibles.
Therefore please, don't be angry at us...and please don't be angry at our religion, because when it comes down to it, it's only a set of beliefs...the bible's never burned or killed everyone (nope, don't be outraged just yet). Please be angry at mankind, who will always find reasons to kill and subdue each other, be angry at mankind because you're smart enough to know that had there never been religion, people would still be dying by the thousands, be angry at mankind because our gift (rationality, in this case being able to think) is also our curse.

But most importantly, please continue your fight. After all mankind is still mankind, it is not our job to self-destruct (definitely not arrogance, I just love my race despite it's flaws)...and if religion is the instrument that is being used for chaos, it is our job to stop its damage and contain it.

On that note, GO...wait, your name is... *scrolls up*
GO GRETA!! :)

Staci

AMEN, SISTER. This article is amazing.

Odizzeus

You think that everyone should share your beliefs and ideas. Im glad I am a Christian and believe God's greatest gift (and man's greatest curse) was free will.

Alexander Center

Thank you for this list, Greta! I first became aware of it when I saw your 40+ minute speech on Youtube. I felt a certain level on...unity with you when you mentioned being angry about poor Galileo. The main reason for this is that I often say I'm still angry for the part religion played in the destruction of the Library of Alexandria, of which there has never been an adequate apology. Thanks again!

Is it just me or is the gallup poll graph look wrong to anyone else? Comes off as 45% say no to atheists and 55% would vote for 1."I'm angry that according to a recent Gallup poll, only 45 percent of Americans would vote for an atheist for President." Just seemed odd to me, or I am reading it wrong.

I get angry at a lot of these things, too. It is obviously never okay to torture, treat inhumanely, etc. any human being - it is absolutely wrong to force beliefs on others (no matter what those beliefs are).

The difference is that I am a Christian lesbian - yes, it sounds like an oxymoron to me, too! And no, I'm not thrilled that I cannot marry in the US - that's why my partner of 15 years and I are moving to another country.

The thing is, for me, I *do* believe, and I do have faith in a higher power. No, I do not foist it on others, no I do not condone atrocities done in the name of *any* religion, no I did not drop out of high school and lack education (I hold 2 graduate degrees in the sciences), and no I do not care what anyone else practices or doesn't practice. I think a lot of the time (human atrocities and civil rights violations aside) if everyone stayed out of everyone else's business, the world would be a better place. Less judging and name calling would also be a good place to start.

I cannot imagine going on the attack over someone else's belief system (no matter what it may be), it just seems futile, cruel, and ignorant.

Wendy

I'm with you. :) Thank you for writing this all out. It was a pleasure you read and feel united. I was expecting a section dedicated to how believers are atheists when it comes to the many many many other gods.

My favorite studies were the ways Christianity stole from other religions to gain membership. Christmas is a few days away, so I'd like to say happy birthday to Mithras and the other gods born of virgins on that same exact day.

Jeff

two words... FUCK YES!!!!

Steven

"I'm angry about what happened to Galileo. Still. And I'm angry that it took the Catholic Church until 1992 to apologize for it."

I'm angry at the apologists' stubborn attempts to relativize (ie lie) the Galileo affair away into nothing, and to try to tell us that we don't understand what the Inquisition was and that it actually saved people from overzealous civil courts and how they (the apologists) are in short so chock-full of shit.

(Thanks to Dan Jighter for linking your blog on the Huffington Post)

IS it just me but I think you must have been angry. Anger can make you blind. On the pie chart I think you mixed up the finding; it states that 55% said Atheists Yes and 45% said Atheists No.
These results a clearly marked by color.
Not trying to offend you or anyone else, I am a practicing Atheists. Just FYI

Leah

Intelligent, succinct, brilliant, beautiful, honest, and impressive. I am not an atheist, nor am I apart of any large organized religion - but the "witch-hunts" are particularly bad these days, and I fully support anyone willing to intelligently argue a point against major organized religion.
I've also studied, memorized, and read literature about every major religion in the known world, and find myself merely using it as ammunition against the ranting corner dwellers in my local city.

Even using evidence from their own religion, the fanatics will continue to argue. I prefer to lean on the belief that no one is likely to be right on anything, and that by closing your mind to any ideas or arguments you are limiting your experience on this Earth.

Believe what you will, but do not use it validate, justify, or rise yourself above anyone else. Do not use it to intimidate, control, or enforce your values on others. We are all mere specks in a vast swirling Universe; feel your insignificance and be the student you were born to be.

Paul

I would like to explain what people refer to as “The Gospel” or “Good News”. In this explanation, I will discuss God’s grace, which unfortunately so many people do not understand or have never been clearly explained.

Unfortunately, many people attend a Christian church regularly (or attended one in the past) but have never been clearly taught what the Bible stresses as the most important decision that one could ever make. It is only in making this decision that one actually becomes one of God’s children and is “saved” from His eternal judgment. This decision deals with what is referred to as “The Gospel”. If you have never heard “The Gospel” before, here it is. Around 33 AD, Jesus Christ, who is God incarnate, paid the price for every single person’s sin in history by dying the death of crucifixion at the hands of the Romans. He willingly died for every person’s sin that has ever lived and every will live. That includes both you and me. He willing died a death that we deserve for our moral failures in life. Jesus was brutally beaten, whipped, mocked, spit upon, nailed to a wooden cross, and then died. Three days later, He rose from the dead, as He foretold His disciples (group of followers). Jesus then ascended into heaven forty days later. He currently lives with God, His father, in heaven today. During Old Testament times (times prior to the birth of Jesus Christ – B.C.), people had a keen awareness of their moral guilt, as any honest person still does today. I know that I have wronged many people and have felt a deep-seated guilt within many areas of my life. Many people during Old Testament times sacrificed animals to God as a form of limited atonement for their immoral actions. God often accepted these sacrifices, but only in a temporary and limited way. Over time, God changed this extremely limited form of atonement, as He had planned from the very beginning of time. Moreover, God sent His one and only son Jesus Christ down to the Earth. Since Jesus was both sinless and blameless, He willingly died on the cross as an unlimited atonement. It was in God’s will for His son to die in this way. This unlimited atonement is available to any person who whole-heartedly repents of their sins (moral failures) and then asks God to personally apply Jesus’ undeserved death and resurrection as a payment for their sins. It is imperative here that one believes the crucifixion of Jesus Christ was ultimately an act of God’s grace. God did not have to offer an escape from our moral guilt and eternal punishment. However, God is gracious. He has a compassion and love for people that is indescribable. God wants to “wipe the slate” clean for us, in regards to our moral failures. Through this action, we could then enter a personal relationship with His son Jesus Christ and escape his eternal judgment. The Bible refers to moral failures as ‘sin’, or missing the mark of God’s perfect standard of morality. “Sin” is an ancient archery term for an arrow that missed the target. God is loving in the purest sense of the word and would like to grant us victory over the sins that still haunt us from our past. All we have to do is accept this gift of grace from Him. It is free.

God promises us a way to become morally blameless and gain entrance into heaven after living our physical live here on Earth. Here is what we must willingly do on our part. First off, we must truly believe that God is gracious and extended His grace by allowing His one and only son to die as a ransom for our sins on the cross. We must admit to God that we have failed morally during our lifetime and that Jesus Christ’s brutal death on the cross is the only sacrifice that could ever forgive our sins. After making this decision (accepting God’s grace), we are immediately forgiven of all past, present, and future sins. In addition, we would be guaranteed entrance into heaven after our physical death here on Earth. We would then live with both God and His son Jesus forever. We would be guaranteed to see all of our loved ones who had made this decision during his or her physical lives on Earth.

You could make this decision today. Please do not wait for the “perfect time”. You could ask God for eternal forgiveness through applying the death and resurrection of Jesus to your life within the quietness of your bedroom tonight. This is the most important decision that you will ever make.

So you might be asking, “Where in the Bible does it explain what has just been summarized?” Here are some passages clearly stating that Jesus seeks a personal relationship with us:

“that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
- Romans 10:9-10

"Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; “
- Acts 3:19

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
- John 3:16

As long as you repent of your past sins (moral failures) from the heart, confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and apply Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection on the cross as a payment for your sins, you are guaranteed eternal life with God in heaven. You can make this decision at any time, anywhere. You can make this decision alone with God or within a group setting.

Please know that one cannot sit the fence on making this decision of accepting God’s gift of grace. If one chooses not to decide, he or she has still made a choice. This would be like receiving a check (hearing “The Gospel”) but never endorsing and cashing it in at the bank (personally applying Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection towards one’s sins).

“He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
- John 3:18

The result of not choosing to accept Gods gift of grace, which offers eternal life with both Him and Jesus in heaven is clear. You will live the remainder of your life here on Earth apart from Jesus Christ and His empowerment. You will then follow your life plan and not His plan for you. After you physically die, you will then be brought to a dark place where there is “weeping and gnashing of teeth”. It is a place of eternal regret. Here, you will remember this very letter and how you were told the truth but chose not to repent and begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Remember, if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice. You could be diagnosed with a terminal illness tomorrow or be the recipient of a head-on collision while returning home on that all too familiar, two-lane highway this Friday night. If you are considering starting your personal relationship with Jesus Christ, please do not wait to make this decision. You never know what tomorrow will bring.

The following passage outlines the only requirements Jesus Christ has set to both gain eternal life and begin a personal relationship with Him while you are still alive here on Earth. He makes it crystal-clear in the Bible what is required…

“that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
- Romans 10:9-10


God has a plan for your life. You can watch this plan unfold once you accept His gift of grace. This great plan involves your life experience while here on Earth and continues after your physical death on into heaven.

“For I know the plans that I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”
- Jeremiah 29:11-13

Please consider what I have said here. I am not sure if you have ever made this decision before, but I needed to make sure that you had the facts. If you should decide that you want to learn more about the life of Jesus and gain a better understanding of authentic Christianity, I strongly recommend reading the book of John within the Bible (NASB or NIV translation).

In closing, here is a verse that someone once shared with me that finally brought me into a relationship with God during an extremely low point physically and emotionally. The understanding of Jesus’ desire to know me personally changed my life forever. Here it is:

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.”
- Revelation 3:20

Karen Loethen

Absolutely EXCELLENT post. I have shared it with all of my best atheist friends, since anger and atheism is a topic about which we spend a great deal of time talking about.

THANK YOU, GRETA, for another kick ass post!

George Morris

Something that drives me up the wall is where the god hypothesis makes any testable claim that testable claim is proven to be false, so then they believe based on the untestable claims. It is amazing how one can twist it into an unfalsifiable hypothesis. It makes it impossible for you to convince them of anything. That is how a meme that protects and propagates itself works.

George Morris

I was trying to be nice at first and held back but then found out people were taking offense anyways and I realized that it was because of the simple act that I question it. I also wasted a lot of time not bringing up the bigger issues with a religion first. So now I just sit back have fun and go for the very controversial comments right away. You can learn a lot when you do the god debates yourself.

Israel Vicars

Thank you for writing this.

Sincerely,

A Christian who wants to understand first and discuss second

I am not an atheist and I agree with you on all these points!

Angela

Great post... But, I didn't read the whole thing because it's a big bummer that this post has to even exist. I wanted to add a couple quick things that I am angry about: I am angry that you have to take time out of your day to post this... unfortunately, it is something that needs to be said. I am angry that I have been labeled atheist. I don't want any label regarding f*ing religion. Its not a part of my life. AND... now I am angry that I am taking time out of my day to post about my lack of religion!

Lucas Hunt

Ok. Take a breath. Your anger was too much and I could not finish. Many of the things you are angry about are the result of our culture, plain and simple. As an Atheist that grew up Christian, I understand that the drive to convert people so they can go to heaven. It is the natural thing to do for the ones you love. This country is so steeped in Christian culture. That is one reason India and China may leave us behind in 15 to 20 years, as they modernize and educate themselves in the sciences without the drag of Creationism in their classrooms. I wonder if we will become somewhat like the Muslims, angry for our own relative poverty, or will we see the light and drop our religiosity??
One more thing. You may think this terrible, or it may make you think. Who must be more powerful than God? Jerry Sandusky. Who else could have walked around and done the things he did while wearing a cross and teaching his victims to pray?? Sandusky must have had God bound in a corner so that he could not save those boys. Or was God just too busy teaching Tim Tebow how to throw a football??

ccna training

You're giving me a hard time to differentiate atheist from anger. Anyway, I'm a christian and I just pray that they will be awaken for the truth. There is one God and no one else.

Fairness

People who criticize atheists are uneducated and think that they are from the devil.I am a christian but I dont criticize and make atheists into out casts, they are all people but they just have different beliefs and opinions and that is their choice and I have my own and I wont try change them as they dont try to change me. Just because they dont get what they want they try change others and make them into out casts...That is not a christian in my eyes!

Scottie

Stumbled on this tonite, thank you so much for sharing. It's very intelligent and well-written -- and it got me fired up just reading it.

Thank you again.

Mark Abandon

I think you're right on -- right on -- right on, a very trite string of arguements. In the future, people will host ghost parties in their homes for fun; laughing out loud will provide bitter attendees with a much-needed endorphin kick; and all those individuals who you thought were your friends, will call out first: who goes there, who goes there? This may not be in vain, for the sadness that sweeps their vision fields may feign much in the way of sighs. And have you ever seen who can make this world simmer and cool? Do they like they well-wishers who coo and caw like newly-found egrets? And was that nest destroyed for you, or for us?

Fie Upon This Quiet Life

I'm with you all the way. Excellent post.

samantha

I would just like to say I enjoyed you're article. As a follow atheist, I understand where you are coming from. I am a fairly normal young adult as many elderly people would call "sweet". But advanced soon as the word god or faith comes up, I am the antichrist in there eyes. Point being atheist aren't as horrible as they like to say. Why cant religious people be as understanding as sex are forced to be?
My husband and I leave in the bible belt and I am continuously hounded about my choice, and yet my husband is too because he chose to marry a nonbeliever. My husband tried to convert me when we started dating but has stopped out of respect for my choice. I wish everyone else could be like him.

With all that being said, why don't you "Christians" who are posting rude comments on her article start acting like Christians? Stop judging and ridiculing her for speaking her mind? No one held you at gun point and made you read this article.

Francis

speaking objectively, i have several problems with the anger

"Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding."
~Mahatma Gandhi

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
~Buddha

"For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

In other words, it doesn't NECESSARILY resolve issues, being angry. It can be destructive of relationships, possible diplomacy, or even be self-destructive. Think of a time when someone shouted at you that you actually listened to that person and took to heart what he/she said, and compare it to a time when someone just talk to you quietly and calmly. Which, then, is more effective?

But there are two sides to anger, of course.

"Usually when people are sad, they don't do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change."
~James Russell Lowell

"The world needs anger. The world often continues to allow evil because it isn't angry enough."
~Bede Jarrett

“Anger is not bad. Anger can be a very positive thing, the thing that moves us beyond the acceptance of evil.”
~Joan Chittister

“Anger is only a natural reaction; one of the mind's ways of reacting to things that it percieves to be wrong. While anger can sometimes lead people to do shocking things,it can also be an instinct to show people that something isn't right.”

That said, anger CAN be a weapon against certain issues. But that doesn't mean that anger should be the actual weapon used. Anger can be effective in letting you know that something is wrong, yes. But retaliating with equal or greater amounts of anger will only do more harm than good. And here's why:

"Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy."
~Aristotle
(it's difficult to control enough to actually make it productive and not self-destructive)

“It is wise to direct your anger towards problems -- not people; to focus your energies on answers -- not excuses.”
~William Arthur Ward

"Keep cool; anger is not an argument."
~Daniel Webster
(it's not. in fact, in many ways, it weakens one's argument, proves you to be more potentially violent than your opponent, hence making you more dangerous simply because you cannot control your anger)

"Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong."
~Baltasar Gracian
(it makes you commit mistakes, because you're no longer thinking clearly, you're too flustered by your hatred to be able to concentrate or gather your thoughts. This is why athletes that are angry don't win, because they are more vulnerable to making mistakes)

Passionate anger is worse, it's just a euphemism for hatred. Anger transformed into passion is different, however, as passion can be devoid of anger. Passion can be more focused, more directed, but less destructive and self-destructive.

"He who angers you conquers you."
~Elizabeth Kenny

Honestly, what has anger ever created except more and more anger? Think about it. Doesn't matter which side you're one, anger is damaging rather than helpful.

What, then, should be done with anger?

“When you are offended at any man's fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.”
~Epictetus

The only way you can really change the mind of a Christian/Atheist is to PROVE them wrong with ACTIONS not WORDS. Prove you're better than the other, prove that your beliefs are more valid than the other. Prove it with POSITIVE ACTIONS AND WORDS, not negative ones.

Why atheists are angry? In my own point of view, they are it is because they hate God. I am sorry to say this but that's the meaning of the name itself. Love God and you will be peaceful.

Alex

I LOVE this article. It is very intelligent, well-written, and you are perfect for blessing it upon the world. Thank you so much!

Hear, hear.

Greta, I am a practicing Wiccan, and this was forwarded to me by another practicing Wiccan. Both of us found your post absolutely brilliant. I didn't read all the post blog comments, so I apologize if this is inappropriate or repetitive. I just wanted to take a moment to tell you that, while our philosophies and beliefs may differ, we share much of the same anger.

I am married to an atheist. Although we have lots of interesting intellectual debates and discussions, we have never once had an argument over religion. He does his thing, I do mine, and we co-exist peacefully.

Unfortunately we deal with much of the same ridiculous crap that you do....."You are going to HELL" pamphlets mailed to my shop, similar garbage sent to my email account, and a family that is constantly "praying for us". Simply finding someone to marry us (we live in Tennessee) five years ago was nearly impossible.

I won't keep carrying on, but I will be anxiously awaiting more of your inspiring writing.

Stay brilliant. Stay angry. Make change.

Abel Andrea

Greetings from Puerto Rico. Gosh, I love Stumble. Just wanted to say that this is a great blog and that I'll be sharing it with all of my non-believers AND believers' friends. Keep it up. Amazing writings... amazing.

- Kisses and hugs from El Caribe.

Later.

Rena

Dear Greta
Cracking good piece - I loved reading it - keep on angry girl, fighting is needed. Love Rena

macoftheaxe

First I would just like to say thank you. Thank you so much! I know this post is over four years old now and I'm awfully late in finding it and it is entirely possible you don't read new comments on older posts anymore, but regardless of all that it was still an amazing piece and it really touched me.

I've been an atheist for a long time and have mostly kept it hidden. And all the while I've been seeing all these horrible things happening that have absolutely enraged me and never spoke out against any of it. It has only been in the last few months that I've finally decided it was enough and started putting all my feelings to the written word. I'm tired of my pacifism and frankly disgusted by it. It feels so liberating to finally be getting this stuff out. It has also gone a long way in helping me with my battle with depression.

I was directed here by someone on Tumblr and I'm so happy I followed the link. I'm saving the link for this post so I can direct people here when they ask me why I get so worked up about these things.

Again, thank you so much.

janelle diters

You should make a small book of this and see if you can get it published. Get it into the hands of as many christians as you can.
Just befoe Hitchen died he said the fastest growing group of people where free thinkers/atheist.

cell phone directory

You have a very nice layout for your blog, i want it to use on my site too    

Neuron

Great work, and thank you for using that particular picture for the Mother Theresa's section. I was getting pretty cross (pardon) by that point, and Hitchens' title made me laugh enough that I wasn't screaming in inarticulate rage by the end.
