Ultimate Power Anthems of the Agnostic

(Based on My Knowledge, Understanding, and Interpretation of Prevailing Scientific Evidence, I Find it Too Counterintuitive to Wholeheartedly Believe in) Thy Word

Shout to the Lord (Seems, in All Honesty, a Reactionary, if Not Drunken, Outburst Unworthy of the Most Rudimentary A Priori Examination)

God of Wonders (I Swear I Put Those Socks in the Dryer as a Pair)

(It Sounds Nice, But I Can’t Really Subscribe to the Notion We Have a) Place in This World

Basics of Life (I’m Just Trying to Get Out Alive, Man)

I’ll Be Believing (In What, I Have No Idea)

I Can Only Imagine (How Liberating It Must Be to Believe in Magic)

In Christ Alone (Well, I’m Hedging My Bets, So Can We Throw in a Buddha or Someone Else, Too?)

Above All (The Notion of a Supreme Being Holding Dominion Over the Universe Seems Far-Fetched)

I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)
