of fallen apples and trees

While I am here ranting about my right to godlessness, my son, the OneTrueb!X, is posting some eloquent stuff about his “devout agnosticism.”
He writes of hope and purpose and dignity and choice, and quotes something penned by the should-be-more-famous Joss Whedon:

If nothing we do means anything,
then the only thing that means anything is what we do.

And he offers something of his own well worth quoting:
I think freely choosing to live a life in which you are respectful, considerate, and aware is more powerful (more beautiful, really) than doing so because some higher power told you it was the right way to be — let alone doing so because you fear being punished by that higher power.

Ah, this is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear him.
