Olivia, John, Wayne and Bruno

Being an atheist is tough: one needs to reconcile oneself to one's mortality, and accept that life has no 'meaning' and death ends it all. No wonder people stick to religion for comfort. So what can atheists do when the temporary nature of their existence depresses them?

Turn to cows. Cows give comfort, hope and reassurance in troubled times. (Also beef, but let's not get morbid here.) And lest you think I'm the only one who feels this way, consider this post by Neha, about Olivia, John, Wayne and Bruno. She expresses her love for cows rather well -- only a cow-lover could think of a headline like hers, which plays off Godard's little-known love for bovine beauties -- and I find it wonderful that through the blogosphere, cow-lovers can unite.

Have you ever stared into the eyes of a cow?
