The only sincere Atheism is silence.
We who speak, write or sing implicitly place faith
in a transcendent third. Be it a God or Gods or Dead
Ancestors with titles. For how else could we posit
meaning? No God or Gods before speech...No death
in the spiritual sense either. Only with Consciousness
and self-Consciousness comes Gods or God or spirits.
Such consciousness is lingual. It is the ground of
perception and apperception. Gods are the collective
hope surpassing Death.
A proof of the lingual/theological connection is the zeal
for a universal language centered in the West after the
establishment of the "Revealed Universal Religion"(Christianity).
It also determines political discourse. Power always speaks
through God or Gods. Be they Ideals of a Messianic Proletariat
or Pallas Athene.
