Quote of the Week

Pictured- Very smart dude

"Live a good life. 
If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

 -Marcus Aurelius
Smart guy that Mr Aurelius.  Now if we could just start getting out to theists that the measure of what is just and unjust is not found in their bible, or their koran, or their torah. 

It is found in the hearts of men who wish to see equity and empathy for everyone.
