Quote found in LETTERS FROM AN ATHEIST NATION, by Thomas Lawson, p. 88
I am an atheist because from a business standpoint, and by reasoning from cause to effect, I find no evidence or intellectual reasoning to convince me that I should think otherwise. Noah Coler, Dayton, Ohio
Noah wished for an inscription on his headstone to read: "Write of me as one who loves his fellow man."
