    Yeah, most of us support ourselves. I just don’t happen to agree that this should make us an object of pity….

    Hard being an atheist in an uncaring world were random events can destroy a life you’ve spent decades building.

    I am accident on accident
    And chance on random chance
    I’m the product of environment
    And changing circumstance

    The odds of my occurrence
    Are incalculably small –
    If you round off to the -m- -b- trillionth place
    I don’t exist at all!

    Every atom in my body
    From an ancient star’s collapse;
    I’m a long time in my making –
    Several billion years, perhaps!

    In a corner of infinity,
    A cold and hostile place
    On a tiny blue oasis
    Set adrift in empty space

    I’m a subset of the universe
    That’s learned to look around –
    And which cannot help but wonder
    At the marvels I have found!

    The descendent of bacteria,
    Of annelids, of fish,
    I’m a member of the primates,
    Just an ape-man, if you wish

    Through the engine of selection
    Some would live and some would die –
    “From so simple a beginning”
    Just how fortunate am I!

    And I pass along my molecules
    And take my place in line
    So some distant, future life form
    Will have carbon that was mine

    And perhaps my DNA as well –
    Unlikely, though, my friend –
    I have ridden quite a lucky streak,
    And lucky streaks must end.

    So it is, and so it must be
    When so much depends on chance
    Since the music plays so briefly,
    Can you blame me if I dance?

    Ain’t no different for anyone else, ’cept that you tell yourselves stories about it to make you feel better. :¬/
