Godless Writer

I usually don't have the patience nor the time to go through entire Indian editorials. But this article was outstanding for the manner in which the writer elucidates his reconciliation of a godless existence with the demise of a doting grandparent.

 

I had been meaning to write something like this for a long time, ever since Dad's demise. Somehow, I could never marshal the congregated feelings efficaciously to warrant a textual transcription. I hope I'm worthy enough someday to write a eulogy befitting him.

 

Addendum: I dreamed of Dad last night. I hugged him tight.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
