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.

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!

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.

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.
