Lovely. I checked into this, and I had completely forgotten Klinghoffer's 2009 article describing why he enjoys Lovecraft--since his purposeless, amoral cosmos allows him insight into what believers in evolution really think about humanity. As PZ Myers so archly put it,
"Apparently, we aren't just unbelievers, or even merely Satan-worshippers anymore — we've moved on to worshipping inimical alien beings beyond space and time that intend to remorselessly destroy us."
Well, that's science for ya.
