"There is actually no such thing as atheism," said the late American author and agnostic David Foster Wallace in a 2008 college commencement speech.

"There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody worships... If you worship money you will... never feel you have enough. Worship your body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly. Worship power, you will end up feeling weak and afraid, and you will need ever more power over others to numb you to your own fear. Worship your intellect, being seen as smart, you will end up feeling stupid, a fraud, always on the verge of being found out. "
