AC Grayling is the son of a bitch atheist who is writing an atheist bible. In other words, he’s my competition. (In my tiny, feeble, twitching mind.) And really, he’s not my competition because he’s actually, like, a published author with a track record, and I’m just somebody trying to come up with 52 Sundays worth of atheistic bleating in book format to try to cash in on what I see as an atheist publishing gravy train. Except that I really believe in what I’m doing, I just can’t help being po-mo about it. And I can’t help thinking that atheists like Roger Waters ought to be incorporated into a liturgy, don’t you? And there’s a big difference between an atheist bible and a liturgy, they are really complementary aren’t they? See how fast my point collapses, like spaghetti after it hits the boiling water.
Anyway, he’s written a DANDY rebuttal to Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor’s attack on secularism, and here’s the link.
And speakin’ of atheists, have you seen Pat Condell’s latest? It’s BRILL.
