More godless eloquence from PZ Myers

If you read just one thing today or this week, go read this wonderful essay on how much more awesome the Gilgamesh, the Bible, the Koran, the Gita and all your religious texts, not to mention the concept of God itself, are, if you but stop taking them literally as words of some imaginary being, rather than as wonderful expressions of entirely human awe and anguish over our existence in this strange, beautiful, indifferent universe. And please stop telling us atheists that we just don’t get it about your faith – as PZ expresses it far more eloquently than I can, we get it all right, I’d say we get it at a deeper level than many believers do.
