Doxology rewritten

Beth Bilynskyj has come up with some alternative versions of the Doxology for her intro to philosophy class:

The (familiar) Christian Theist Doxology
Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below,
Praise Him above ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
--Amen.

The Modernist Doxology
Praise Nature from which Reason flows!
Whatever is, is right, it shows.
By Reason we all things control.
Cause and effect let us extol!
--Uniformity

The Nihilist Doxology
There is no truth. Nothing is real.
Meaninglessness is all I feel.
No need to take another breath
The only way out comes by death.
--Absurd!

The Existentialist Doxology
Praise me because I am so great!
All values are mine to create,
as well as what is real and true.
I have no other hell but you.
--Autonomy.
