What she said:

The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell.

There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.

–Ayaan Hirsi Ali (from How (and Why) I Became an Infidel)
