iBear is writing a book.

And this isn't the usual "I should write a book" stuff. This time I'm really writing a book.

I've actually already started. It's a book about atheism and religious belief, and the working title is Divine Epilepsy.

This references a wonderful quote that I encountered a few months ago:

"Men think epilepsy divine, merely because they do not understand it. We will one day understand what causes it, and then cease to call it divine. And so it is with everything in the universe."

– Hippocrates, Greek physician and the founder of modern Medicine, circa 400 B.C.

Today has been named as "Proud to be an Atheist Day!"

iBear presents this quote, which seems to sum it all up to me:

"I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me. If they hold thought to be dangerous - if they aver that doubt is a crime, then I attack them one and all, because they enslave the minds of men." - Robert G. Ingersoll
