The empty name of God

"I would wish people to live without superstition, to govern their lives with reason, and to conduct their relationships on reflective principles about what we owe one another as fellow voyagers through the human predicament – with kindness and generosity wherever possible, and justice always. None of this requires religion or the empty name of “god”. Indeed, once this detritus of our ignorant past has been cleared away, we might see more clearly the nature of good, and pursue it aright at last." ~ A C Grayling


  1. Thank you for your comment Bruce Gordon. I note you are familiar with certain passages in the Bible, as am I, but I consider they do not provide the basis for a rational discussion.
