I agree very much with this. I think (although how would I know? OK, I believe) that I experience my atheism in as profoundly moved and awed manner as my religious friends say they experience their spirituality and relationship with God. I've never felt empty (other than when I was depressed), and find myself constantly moved by how amazing the world is, and by the paradox that the time we have on earth is so small and insignificant that it means nothing at all, and yet is everything to us.

What is so spectacular to me is the fact that when it comes right down to it, twelve-year-old Will spends the entirety of chapter two bossing around two angels who are thousands of years old and massively in love with one another. I KNOW, RIGHT?! Will is so awesome. I hearts him.

I was quite taken aback by the snarkiness of the angels though. I was completely on board with them as ALL KNOWING AND WISE ARCHITECTURES, and yet now they have personalities? Weird... but awesome weird.

I totally thought the Regent would be Jesus - I thought that would be the massive controversial crux of the series. Killer flying Jesus on the loose! But no, it was only an angel. I am disappoint.

I loved the bit when Will told the angels that finding Lyra and his mother was the point of this metaphysical speculation. BOOYAH, angels. This kid is beyond awesome.

I have nothing to say about this chapter except DIE IN A FIRE MRS COULTER'S MONKEY.

Mrs Coulter, she can go too.

Seriously, too creepy.

Pocahontas is forever my role model for transcending the language barrier through the medium of song! Mad props to her!

Lord Asriel and the Dust-angels is surely a band-name in the making. Surely.

AND ALSO! I like the fact that this flawed rationale for awful behaviour stems around love/"love"/lust, which is such a key differentiation between adulthood and childhood. So it subverts the whole you grow up and gain knowledge of The World and put away the irrationality of youth with a big phat ADULTS BE CRAZY, YO.

Re the angels: I KNOW, RIGHT? WHAT THE ACTUAL WHAT?!
