The moon and me
Some nights ago the moon took a cup of tea with me;
I brought two china cups, a teapot in a cosy,
half a pack of McVitie’s,
a heart to brim and a chin to wag,

Julian Baggini quote: “Goblins, hobbits… truly everlasting gobstoppers… God is just one of the things that atheists don’t believe in, it just happens to be the thing that, for historical reasons, gave them their name.” Actually, no. Perhaps we could say that God is just one of many things that naturalists don’t believe in, or something like that, but atheism is defined only by a lack of belief in gods.
