First dentistry was painless;
Then bicycles were chainless
And carriages were horseless
And many laws, enforceless.
Next, cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless
And coffee, caffeineless.
Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy hatless,
The proper diet, fatless,
Now motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religions, godless.

We believe in Marx, Fraud, and Darwin.  We believe everything is okay, as long as you don’t hurt anyone, to the best of your definition of hurt, and to the best of your definition of knowledge.  We believe in sex before, during, and after marriage.  We believe in the therapy of sin.  We believe that adultery is fun.  We believe that taboos are taboo.  We believe that everything is getting better, despite evidence to the contrary.  The evidence must be investigated, and you can prove anything with evidence.  We believe there’s something in horoscopes, UFOs, and bent spoons.  Jesus was a good man just like Buddha, Muhammad, and ourselves.  He was a good moral teacher, although we think some of his morals were basically bad.  We believe that all religions are basically the same; at least the ones that we read were.  They all believe in love and goodness; they only differ on matters of creation, sin, heaven, hell, God, and salvation.  We believe that after death comes the nothing, because when you ask the dead what happens, they say nothing.  If that is not the end and if the dead have lied then it’s compulsory heaven for all, except perhaps Hitler, Stalin, and Gengis Khan.  We believe in Masters and Johnson.  What’s selected is average, what’s average is normal, what’s normal is good.  We believe in total disarmament.  We believe there are direct links between warfare and bloodshed.  American should beat their guns into tractors and the Russians would be sure to follow.  We believe man is essentially good, it’s only his behavior that lets him down.  This is the fault of society, society is the fault of conditions, conditions are the fault of society.  We believe that each man must find the truth that is right for him, and reality will adapt accordingly.  The universe will readjust, history will alter.  We believe that there is no absolute truth except the truth that there is no absolute truth.  We believe in the rejection of creeds, and the flowering of individual thought.  If chance be the father of all flesh, disaster is his rainbow in the sky.  And when you hear “state of emergency,” “sniper kills ten,” “troops on rampage,” “bomb blasts school,” it is but the sound of man worshipping his maker.
