the Dao of Atheism :jeffers' petroglyph, pre-dakota, minnesota : the Shaman Atheist 60/81


Thinking big thoughts
of religion the dao atheism
is like cooking small fish
the less handled
the more remains.

Following the way
no force is used no bad
no coaxing is used no good

both merge
to the same end.

The third archetypal atheist is don Manuel, stranded in the wasteland between the fertile fields of organized religion and the desert barrens of Europe without its god, affirming the theistic ignorance of the masses, their opiate for survival, while suffering the truth of no-god, no heaven, no meaning.
