Well, I never heard of Lovecraft, didn't know what a Cthulhu was, so went on a hunt. My gosh! You guys really have interesting tastes! Well, I will contribute to your Cthulhu Rising with this little gem: 

Cthulhu Rising

Well, it is a bit difficult to imagine the originator so many eldritch horrors as a pious church going kind of guy. He was far too articulate to fall for the line of bull. This particular quote is one of the best critiques of religious beliefs I've heard. It cuts right to the heart of the matter and, to my mind anyway, doesn't leave a lot of room for argument.

Could we really expect less of the originator of Cthulhu?!?

Very nice quote, Loren. I've enjoyed Lovecraft's somewhat bizarre fantasy fiction, but I didn't actually know he was a non-believer although it's not at all surprising.
