And some people still think there's no God!

I know you're joking, but it's precisely images like that that reinforce my non-belief.  The incongruity of the tininess and insignificance of organisms in an impossibly thin organic layer on a small rocky planet in this endless sea of nothingness teeming with galaxies filled with billions of stars with the idea that these organisms are somehow significant is just absurd.  We're the bacteria on a speck of dust in a cathedral and we think the music is playing for us.

Well, not to equate them to bacteria, but I have in the past on occasion sung for my guppies.

Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.
