    Whatever Russell said in his essay
    I have forgotten now—an atheist,
    freethinker, one not minded to obey
    commandments of old dogma but resist,
    exalting logic, rationality,
    and common sense, not common in most minds
    inculcated with blind idolatry
    or bogus ideology that blnds.
    Yet what is it he’d “worship” and why use
    a word that seems religious to describe
    habits and attitudes he’d disabuse,
    the idols of a superstitious tribe?
    To worship is to praise what is of worth,
    and wisdom is our highest aim on Earth.
