Ancient Atheist Troll

The Chinese philosopher Xun Zi (312-230 BCE) sounds like an atheist blogger :

Pray all you want – heaven can’t hear you.
I’s not going to stop the winter because you are cold,
and it’s not going to make the Earth smaller because
you don’t want to walk so far.
You pray for rain and it rains,
but your prayer nas nothing to do with it.
Sometimes you don’t pray for rain, and it rains anyway.
What do you say then?
If you want to have a better life, educate yourself
and think carefully about the consequences of your actions.

Xun Zi, Chinese philosopher
(312-230 BCE)
