To be happy in life one must get rid of anything that is useless, ugly, fearful, and mindless; indeed, get rid of religion. Especially as religion is organized misery reduced to a system of sacred malarkey.
As religion promises, there is no such thing as a better life to come after death. This is the only the better life after birth. life may be short, brief, and fleeting. Let us, however, learn to be happy here, there, and everywhere while we are on this earth. We do this by making others also happy. Poch Suzara
