What is god for?

I intend to post something that stretches to more than two sentences and a punchline any month now, but in the meantime this is an interesting article. Probably best to avoid the comments though, religious discussions over at Comment Is Free tend to go downhill very quickly.

Interesting. You're right though, the comments are all the usual old crap. Why do kristians insist on constantly exposing their complete ignorance of history? Its something thats really started to get my goat recently. Especislly the assertion that once the Roman Empire was kristianised, it was all flowers and bunnies, despite the fact that 'saint' Constantine 'the great' had his younger brothers eyes removed, so he wouldn't threaten his position. Nice chap! I'm just so sick of the bloody ignorance and moral superiority that goes with it. But, of course, you can't criticise it, or they start on the 'persecution' tip again. Persecution, my arse! Just because piety can no longer publicly display the feeling of superiority that once it could, and that a large number of people will no longer tolerate this idiotic falseness, does not mean you are being persecuted. In fact, it degrades the very term.

And I want a 'Dostoyevsky can suck my hairy balls' Tshirt.

What amazes me is people's need to have all the answers RIGHT NOW! And if they don't have all the answers right now, they look to something that makes them up, i.e. religion. Science has never claimed to have all the answers. It is progressive. Religion is stagnate and ignorant.

Pinchbeck is right, the Christian religion relies upon ignorance (my next post).

Mt 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Grasp ignorance and hug a Christian today.
