“We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.”
Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

“I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.”
Richard Dawkins

“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

Good morning. In less than an hour, Deadbeats from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest Deadbeat poll vote in the history of mankind.

Mankind -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today.

We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore.

We will be united in our common interests.

Perhaps it's fate that next month holds the 4th of July, and you will once again be reading for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from annihilation.

We're reading for our right to live, to exist.

And should we win the day, the month of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the Deadbeats declared in one voice:

"We will not read quietly into the night!

We will not reach to turn off the light!

We're going to read on!

We're going to survive!"

Next month, we celebrate our Independence Day!
