Iím starting a new religion called Earthism. I know, itís probably not a word, but neither was any other word until it was used enough times.
Let me tell you about this new religion. Every day I wake up and thank the Earth for all the good things she gives me, I donít wait for any special day to do it (like a Sunday!) I do it everyday because any day could be my last. Or yours for that matter!
As an Earthist you are free to pray to any other god that you want and you wonít be "pushed out" or ridiculed for it. You will not be expected or asked to fight any war in the name of Earthism.
As an Earthist you will not be expected to purge yourself of negative thoughts, you will not be expected to send in your hard earned money to "fix the roof" and also, if you decide to take a mistress, well thatís nothing to do with the rest of us now is it!
The only thing you will be expected to do is this. Every morning when you wake up, look around you at what you have, and say thank you to the Earth. Before you dismiss the idea, think for a moment where you would be without her, if you canít think of anything, hereís a little reminder of where youíd be.
Up shit creek without a paddle!
