by Buzzy Jackson

Buzzy Jackson The Inspirational Atheist


"The Inspirational Atheist" is a collection of uplifting quotations from some of mankind's most important philosophers, scientists, writers, and comedians,"The Inspirational Atheist" will be a treasured daily companion for people who believe that life has meaning when we live it meaningfully, independent of the existence of a higher power.
