The Silence of Reason

‘Tis the season for scary tales. So, have a Hallowe’en drabble.

Our scientists found a rational explanation for every trace of the divine. Our surgeons fixed the flaws that made some believe in the face of the evidence. And, freed of all the lies of the past, our philosophers set out a logical and consistent set of moral principles for all situations. Finally, a world in which we act only according to truth and free will.

Which means my wife chose to complain about me not putting the bin out.

And, when I checked, the bin wasn’t even half full.

But that’s fine. I needed somewhere to put her body anyway.
