Many atheists worship Richard Dawkins. He believes there is a possibility that we are here because we were "seeded" by aliens. PROVE IT! Jesus, ....I mean, oops, sorry. At least get someone reasonable like Carl Sagan. That guy was a Christ figure if I ever saw one. His highest belief seemed to be love. Dawkins is just a prick. I mean, he's like the Ratzinger of Atheicism.@@@

So anyhow, I thought I'd ask the author of this image for permission to post it. Bless his heart, Carroll Jones III (Click on name to see his website) gave permission. He is an artist in New Jersey. The original of this painting sold for a lot of moolah twenty years ago. And here it is now, on my blog, with the artist's permission. Life is good.
He said it was the first time he would look at a blog-post. I feel real unworthy..
He also suggested Aaron Copeland's "Simple Gifts" from Appalachian Spring
