On Atheism

"A quote by George Santayana, "My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety toward the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image, to be servants of their human interests."

From this article on a PBS series on atheism.
I've always liked what Frank Lloyd Wright said when asked about his personal religious belief: "I put a capital N on Nature and call that my church."

I love how the people in the article speaking out against this series and atheism argue that this is anti-Christian and shouldn't be allowed based on that. Just showing an alternative to religion doesn't say anything one way or the other about religion. The idea that you can't show or learn about something because it might offend people who don't believe it is just stupid. And as I always think, if your religion is so weak that you have to be afraid of people learning about an alternative, you need to reexamine your faith.
