Welcome to a world of benign indifference
Benign Home


If you have a relaxed attitude to those with whom you disagree; if you don't respect the other fellows religion but insist on his right to practice it; if you are deeply uncertain about life and at the same time a little excited by that uncertainty then continue …

If on the other hand you are offended by criticism of your beliefs or would rather be left undisturbed by alien ideas then you are a sadly oversensitive individual who although still welcome might be happier elsewhere goodbye …


'In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind pitiless indifference.' : [Richard Dawkins - River out of Eden]
'It was as if that first great rush of anger had washed me clean, emptied me of hope, and, gazing up at the dark sky spangled with its signs and stars, for the first time, the first, I laid my heart open to the benign indifference of the universe.' : [Albert Camus - The Outsider]
A place where we '… respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart'.; [H L Mencken]
