    Who says religion has a monopoly on morals? My kids learned anything the church could offer on morals before they were 10. That’s the wonderful thing about atheism. Once we’ve figured something out through science, we’ll go on to the next thing. We progress.
    And voila, 2000 years later and one side has developed the ideas for everything we use in our world today; while the other side is stuck on ‘good’ for 2000 years.
    Are you good?
    I’m trying.
    You?
    Working on it.
    Let’s meet for another 2000 years and discuss goodness.
    Sounds good!
    See you next week. Be good.
    Shhheeeesshhhh! Read a nonfiction book! It’ll help tame irrational behavior.
