Atheism and the atheist isn't always inspirational. This is where Prof. Dawkins will often point out the difference between comfort and truth and, what he prefers. Having had to unexpectedly euthanize Quinn (the springer spaniel I mentioned in another discussion) a couple of weeks ago, I find no inspiration in the fact that after a fifteen-year friendship, he's gone forever. Whatever "he" was, is, for all practical purposes, finished.

Perhaps I've seen it here or at the Reason Rally, but a thought that gives me inspiration in good times and bad could very well be described as canine philosophy. Dogs believe in life before death. And so do atheists.

Cheers.
