The moths and atheists are doubly divine and dying. We have assembled inside this ancient and insane theatre To propagate our lust for life and flee the swarming wisdom of the streets. We live, we die, and death not ends it. Journey we more into the Nightmare Cling to life our passioned flower Cling to Cunts & Cocks of despair. We got our final vision by clap Columbus's groin got filled with green death I touched her thigh and death smiled. The barns are stormed The windows kept And only one of all the rest to dance and save us with the divine mockery of words.

William Alan Finn (born February 28, 1952) is an American composer and lyricist of musicals. He is known for his musical Falsettos which received the 1992 Tony Award for Best Original Score as well as the 1992 Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical. He attended the Temple Israel in Natick, where his Rabbi was Harold Kushner. In Hebrew School, Finn wrote his first play, saying, "I don't think I ever told anyone this: The first play I ever wrote was in Hebrew. I have no idea what it was about

Atheists can only practice their religion because there are some who still worship Go. They are destroyed by fire from Heaven and Satan is thrown into the Lake of Fire where the Antichrist and False Prophet are.

Atheists can only practice their religion because there are some who still worship God. When the number gets small enough then God will hold judgment and then there will be no more atheists. Those in their natural bodies who have survived the Tribulation will be in the audience. At this time all the great oceans will be dried up. There will still be inland seas, lakes and rivers.

But if we reject Christ, then we reject God's mercy and fall back on His justice. And you know where you stand there. If we reject Jesus’ offer of forgiveness, then there is simply is no one else to pay the penalty for your sin – except yourself.

  • I am not a religious person, or Jewish, for that matter, or well schooled in Middle-Eastern politics. I did not think a book on these topics would appeal to me.

    I was wrong.

    William Finn does write about Large Issues and Major Events (e.g., the assassination of Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995), but he succeeds in personalizing those issues and events. And, most importantly, he manages to keep his sense of humor and his passion for peace in a region of the world not known for either quality.

    An American Jew raised in 1960s suburbia and spiritualized through 1980s Jewish Renewal, Finn's account of his six years in Israel begins before he moved there and ends after he returned to the U.S. It is essentially a story of expatriation and repatriation -- even of an exodus or pilgrimage -- that vividly details the places, incidents, and people that most surprised him during his time in the Middle East.

    Finn's journey of self-discovery and his quest for a spiritual and national identity are quite touching at points. The lessons they teach are important ones for all of us -- especially us baby boomers who are still struggling to find a spiritual compass.

  • My family lived in what is now the land of Israel for five generations. I have made numerous trips to to this country. My time there has totaled about three and a half years.

    Although they will not tell you that (Israelis do not like to act dramatic, at least not in front of strangers), the law in the land of Israel is very simple: Plain Survival. But the science of survival there is made of a great part of sweet and sour humor, and this is what Bill Finn has captured during his years in this beleaguered and tiny country.

    Each anecdote is recounted with a dose of salt and pepper, gudgingly covering the writer's love and admiration for the Israelis' resiliency-coupled with a necessary dose of fatalism-for a nation having known in its 57 years of existence, four wars and incessant and almost daily terrorist attacks in between.

    People who have been to Israel will smile and maybe shed a tear; those who have not will be surprised, touched, and will want to know more.

  • Bill Finn's is a voice like no other, at once refreshingly mordant and bitingly satirical as he probes the conflicts, contradictions, and idiosyncrasies of life in Israel. Not beholden to any political or religious ideology, Bill is a principled skeptic, waiting to be convinced, yet mesmerized by the twists and turns of the Israeli psyche. A citizen of two worlds, Bill's askew Zionism distinguishes him from every other writer who has sought to encompass this elusive subject.

    For the record, this commentator is an American-born Jewish writer based in Tzfat, in the Upper Galilee region of northern Israel. I've known Bill for 25 years and have shared a few adventures with him. We see things differently, but I admire his pertinacity and resiliency.

  • Bill Finn, in "Where Will Atheists Pray", expresses the feelings that I and so many ex-patriate Americans share. I found myself laughing, and oftentimes unexpectedly crying. The Lubovaticher Rebbe of blessed memory once described how we know something is real TRUTH: Your body tells you so. You get a physical reaction. When something is real TRUTH. I get tears in my eyes. I found myself reading Bill's book through clouds of tears and laughter. Kol HaKavod!(Right on Brother!)

  • Much like his namesake in the musical theater world, William L. Finn tackles meaty subjects and deep questions with a sense of humor, integrity, and honesty. He offers a view of the Israel situation that mixes the insider and the the outsider. His approach to sensitive issues shows that he has grappled with the comlexities involved, without shying away from taking a stand, or stating an opinion. At least as important, the book is darned entertaining, and a really easy read.

  • I comapre this book to Twain's "The Innocents Abroad". It makes you laugh. It makes you wonder. It tells you about Americans' expereince living in Israel.

    I will be recommending this book to my tourists. It will provide those who are interested in delving beneath the surface of the tourist experience a better understanding of everyday life in our complex reality.

  • This is a great book to make you think and make you laugh. Little stories and vignettes to read one at a time, or all at once. It is surprisingly complex and thoughtful, but with wry and occasional laugh-out-loud humor.

    Finn is a perceptive writer, with insights into everyday and unusual situations. I suspect we will be hearing good things from him for many years to come.
