"He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife." - Douglas Adams, "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

If you've ever "hoped and prayed" for something in spite of being an atheist, then you'll want to read my new article about atheists who find themselves falling back on religious expressions such as "God Bless You" and "Oh, My God!" instead of using secular alternatives. It's titled "Atheists Who Invoke God by Name, and Other Linguistic Ironies," and it explores how invoking the name of a deity you don't believe in might be more commonplace than you think. You'll find it here:

Also, don't forget that today is "D" Day on our Atheist Quotes Alphabet Game. If you have any Richard Dawkins or Charles Darwin quotes to add to the list, post them here before we move on to "E":

Other forum topics you'll want to check out include our new forum rules and our best/worst bumper sticker polls. As always, you'll find the atheist/agnostic forum here:
