Our brains, which art in our heads, treasured be thy name. Thy reasoning come.
Thy best you can do be done on earth as it is.
Give us this day new insight to help us resolve conflicts and ease pain.
And lead us not into supernatural explanations; deliver us from denial of logic.
For thine is the kindom of reason, and even though thy powers are limited, and you're not always glorious,
You are the best evolutionary adaptation we have for helping this earth now and forever and ever.
So be it.

@ Nick

Yes, but this is not a good thing. As much as I am all for the mocking of religion, things like this are why people are starting to say this neo-atheism is a religion.

And really, it's damn close.

Soon this isn't going to be about free thought like it is now. It will be people born into it, just like religion. Though this will hopefully never be anything as blind, it has that potential. Specifically why I think it should be changed to Anthem.

i think the "prayer" is actually put there in the title just to mock religion's prayer of "our father, who are in heaven".

Good point, Tyler. I agree. I have to admit, I would have loved to have been with Kevin if he did recite it in front of his in-laws. OK, I'm bad, I'm bad. But I'm just "a godless heathen", what can you expect? LMAO

@James - I totally agree. I think the title should be changed to "The Anti-theist's Anthem." Makes more sense and a bit catchier, if I say so myself.

Anti=theists "prayer"? A contradiction in terms isn't it?
