    Arthritic old man, hunched over, clutching his miniature statue in his hands to his breast, squeezing with what is left of his strength mouthing the words like a chant:

    I have a dream, a fantasy
    to help me through reality
    and my destination makes it worth the while
    pushing through the darkness still another mile
    I believe in angels
    something good in everything I see
    I believe in angels
    when I know the time is right for me
    I'll cross the stream: I have a dream
    I'll cross the stream: I have a dream


    Seeking succor where disappointment rules, he strains to make a reality where nothing but nothingness greets every word, every breath. No hope, he creates it with his feeble candle while blowing out any thought of light. In passing, he demands another reprieve... immediately.

    The gods may throw a dice
    Their minds as cold as ice
    And someone way down here
    Loses someone dear
    The winner takes it all
    The loser has to fall
    It's simple and it's plain
    Why should I complain

    Always been amused by Chesterton's, "If there were no God, there would be no atheists."

    The OP sees the atheist from the standpoint of him holding to his beliefs in a religious fashion. He quotes from the prophets, communes with like-minded people and seeks to proselytize unbelievers. His desire to have others repent is not from a standpoint of love or concern to them as much as a need to convince himself he is right: competing beliefs are a threat to his world view.

    His rigidity is a result of years of stubbornness, rendering him completely inflexible.

    Okay. When I first read it, it seemed that the OP was not looking at an atheist at all.... Quite the opposite in fact. Stills seems a bit like pots and kettles to me.

    The down side of being an atheist is that when they make love, there's no one to talk to.

    Instead of talking to a god during copulation just watch TV, but don't change the channel.

    True, likewise "If there were no God, there would be no theists" and it doesn't really explain anything.

    All it proves is that there are certain words that exist that depend on other words to exist. Like, "If there was no hot, there will be no cold" (effectively meaning that everything is the same temperature so no relative terms for comparison).

    Just a play on words which do not prove anything to do with the subject being discussed (even though many attempt to do so).
