Atheism is a religion.
Today’s sermon will be about Charles Darwin, and we will be taking passages from the Origin of Species (sixth edition — other editions are unreliable translations). Darwin is the Rock of Ages, a cleft for us… a place to hide, a place of safety, of sanctuary for us. Darwin is the Rock that rolls our blues away, our pain, our suffering need not be wasted. Darwin endured the suffering and shame for his theory. We love you so much Darwin, and we thank you, and we praise your good name! So in the name of the father, the son and Lucy the common ancestor we pray. Darwen.
