There is no good or evil, only consequences, pleasant or less so.

I'm an atheist - how could Stallmanism work for me?

Stallmanism is a compatible extension of atheism. Atheism is a step on the road to Enlightenment, a rejection of legacy religions, imaginary friends, telepathy, and pixies. Stallmanism takes this a step further and says that we, humans, fully define Heaven and Hell, through the adoption of an appropriate social contract.

Why is the GPL so important?

A True Believer does not question the sacred texts, but if you really insist, it's because the GPL defines an evolving social contract that eliminates friction in the digital society and economy, promotes universal access to knowledge, and thus enables the inevitable emergence of a global human super-consciousness, which Stallmanists recognize as "God".

Stallman is too late. Dr. Bob Dobbs has already got it covered.

Although the Pastafarians and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster run a close second. Cool

Given that patent wars are grinding innovation to a halt -- at least sucking an increasingly larger amount of money out of innovation, the GPL doesn't seem so bad. (Unless you're Steve Jobs and wondering how to take all those billions with you.)

Even if it was merely 20th century, skeptics would have a hard job topping Bokononism

I always used to think the concept behind Heinlein's Fosterite Church of the New Revelation (and their football rally approach to worship) was a pretty funny bit of literary invention. Or did until I started cruising the cable channels one quiet Sunday afternoon.

In terms of devotion, blind faith, communal ecstasy and tithing it surely has to be Apple.
