David Foster Wallace

Fascinating quote from Athiest David Foster Wallace.

“Because here’s something else that’s true. In the day-to-day trenches of adult life, there is no such thing as atheism. There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship. And an outstanding reason for choosing some sort of god or spiritual type thing to worship… is that pretty much anything else you worship will eat you alive.”
