    Hey guys -

    Saw this video whilst cruising around the internet. Thought you might enjoy it! It's a rather well sung hymnal composed by Steve Martin. :)

    Kudos for rhyming "existentialism."

    Edit:
    It looks like someone installed that spoiler function to hide the video.
    To whomever did it, please give me partial credit for selecting the
    version on youtube which had no profanity in the title. I try.

    Thanks, I never heard that one. It is classic John and I would have no problems with it for the atheist theme song.

    It's from John's debut Plastic Ono Band Album.

    Just realized that behaves very strangely on a browser because I posted the link from my phone. This one is normaler.

    Wow...:clap

    Okay, so this isn't an atheist song, per se. More a humanist point of view of things, which I think is a much more positive message in any case. What do I care if someone believes in God or not, if they're playing a positive role on the planet, and letting others do the same? Erm...end rant...lol

    I'll shut up and put the music here now.

    Honestly, my question would be, why would atheists need songs? Do non-stamp collectors need songs about not collecting stamps? Why would non-theists need songs about not believing in gods then?

    Everybody needs songs. What a silly question. Atheist songs are not "about" not believing in God. They're about experiencing and understanding life through the prism of our personal philosophical foundation, just like everybody else's songs.

    Then there are millions upon millions upon millions of songs out there. Check out iTunes. Atheists have tons of songs that have nothing to do with atheism, it's called music. My point was, why do atheists need specifically atheist music? There's a world-full of music out there if people just go look for it.
