In This Labyrinth of Nonsense

"For atheism, in the final analysis, there is no Final Analysis."
—Douglas Groothuis


Sam Harris

Here is one of my favorite quotes that,....in the final analysis.... was uttered (apparently) by a self-professed nobody at all:

“Our conventional sense of self is an illusion....The feeling that we call ‘I’ is an illusion....There is no discrete self or ego living like a Minotaur in the labyrinth of the brain.”
–Sam Harris
(New Age, radical, pop-atheist philosopher)

Welcome to postmodernism’s metaphysical House of Mirrors, a truthless ‘Fun House’ of Chaos and Disorientation where atheistic Nonsense and Nihilism reign supreme.





In This Labyrinth of Nonsense


God’s not something I believe in…
Neither ‘me’, nor ‘him’ nor ‘her’…
‘I’ am NOT…and never have been,
And guess what?....YOU never were!

‘I’, I feel, is just illusion…
I, myself, will make this clear.
Hear me out…I will convince you…
And then…”POOF!”....I’ll disappear.

Here Gray Matter’s all that matters,
If ‘I’ were, I’d call it home!
Yes, behold!...My favorite ‘Safe Place’
Where I’d like to be alone.

It’s where I can be persuaded
That I don’t exist at all…
Join me here with Mr. Dumpty
Way up high on Humpty’s wall.

Yes, from here you’ll see what matters,
You’ll see Matter matters most…
In this labyrinth you’ll find that
Every “truth” claim turns to toast.

It’s the latest “Po-Mo-Wisdom”,
Wisdom that ‘I’ swear is true!
Avant-garde and quite the fashion,
Scientism’s latest brew.

It’s a labyrinth of Nonsense
Where distortion plays her hand…
It’s where fantasy’s exalted,
And where Chaos takes command.



It’s where reason’s out of season
Where distortion’s VERY cool…
It’s where “Self” is praised on one hand,
On the other?….. Overruled!

It’s where contradiction flowers,
It’s where there’s no Bottom Line.
It’s where Madness is now honored
And there is no “Grand Design”.

Here I stand with Strong Delusion,
I’m convinced, so here ‘I’ hide…
I can simply do no other.
It’s a matter, sir, of Pride!


“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” -2Thessolonians 2: 11-12
