The Secular Humanist Anthem

My pick for a Secular Humanist (or agnostic, or atheist, or just plain sensible) anthem:

Imagine there’s no Heaven 
It’s easy if you try 
No hell below us 
Above us only sky 
Imagine all the people 
Living for today 

Imagine there’s no countries 
It isn’t hard to do 
Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace 

You may say that I’m a dreamer 
But I’m not the only one 
I hope someday you’ll join us 
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no possessions 
I wonder if you can 
No need for greed or hunger 
A brotherhood of man 
Imagine all the people 
Sharing all the world 

You may say that I’m a dreamer 
But I’m not the only one 
I hope someday you’ll join us 
And the world will live as one

- John Lennon

  3. I think John Lennon was more realistic than most people, he just also happened to be idealistic.

    • Yep. Here in the Real World, people try to emulate him. Wonder why that might be. ;-)

  4. The real world that people live in includes some many social constructions that differ from group to group that one must ask what perspective do people apply to their reality.
