I'm an atheist, too, and I subscribe every single word of your post.

We are metaphoric monks in a metaphoric monastery, so if I agree to be called "friar" now, I should not object to be called "angel" or "spirit" when I'll be dead. Indeed I don't object to it, and certainly I'll not do then.

My materialistic point of view is that I don't know if (and I don't believe that) there is an immortal part of what is me, but I do know that each one of us can achieve a little bit of immortality doing something useful for the others. And useful can be a very wide word.

So, I can't think of anything more appropriate than remember who is no more here by mean of what he did. I'm thinking of a place (a crypt? is it the right word?) to remember them and their work. I'd love to be there when my time comes.

Rule One: "Do not act incautiously when confronting a little bald wrinkly smiling man."

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
