A Few Irreverent Thoughts

If God made man in his own image, how come we aren’t invisible too?

“We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.” (Richard Dawkins)

If you really think about it, one might say that the Inquisition was the original “Faith-Based Initiative”. Not so?

Remind me again…Which day was it when God made all the fossils?

The whole priest/pastor sex abuse thing doesn’t surprise me at all. I mean, you mix credulity, authority, robes, wine, and virgins…we should of seen it coming!

Why would a perfect deity create a system where being intellectually curious is a sin? Only man would concoct such a system… And, of course, he has.

It takes a sick mind…I mean a really, really sick mind…to go through life believing that there is an invisible something somewhere that loves you so much that if you don’t obey, worship, and adore it completely and absolutely, it will torture you brutally and mercilessly for eternity. Fucking think about it!

Creation Science and its ugly step-sister, “Intelligent Design”, do serve one extremely useful purpose I suppose. They do help tragically stupid people feel smart. (Want to have fun with a CS/ID supporter? Ask them to explain evolution.)

The Bible tells us that Jehovah is “a jealous God”. OK. But if you’re omniscient, omnipotent, and the only one of a kind in the entire universe…what in the hell is there to be jealous of?

Statistically, whether you are a believer or not, as well as how fervently you believe, depends largely on three factors: 1) Where on this earth you were born, 2) What your parents believe(d); and 3) Your level of education. (Yes, the higher the level of education attained, the lower the percentage of belief.) Hello!!!!

And finally two (real) recent headlines that caught my attention:

Nuns leave their brains to science STEPHANIE REITZ, Associated Press
Makes sense. I mean, what the hell…they weren’t really using them anyway.

No joke: Clowns spread the Gospel MATT SEDENSKY, Associated Press
Well no shit! Like that hasn’t been obvious for the past 2,000 years.
