Religion

If you believe that the Bible is the word of God–and a lot of people do–then you also believe that we are all products of the Original Incest. Without getting too bogged down in the details, if we all came from Adam and Eve, their grandchildren were necessarily products of incest.

So you, me, all your relatives, friends, children, grandchildren and ancestors are all products of the Original Incest.

Fast forward to the flood. Everyone that is alive today shares a common ancestor in Noah. And since the offspring of Shem, Ham, and Japeth (Noah’s sons) must have necessarily engaged in incest to continue human breeding, we’re all also children of the Second Great Incest, or the Flood Incest.

We are all Children of the Original Incest.

We are all Children of the 40 Day Flood Incest.

Which incest are you more proud of? Which incest will you teach your children about? These are all questions that we must decide individually.

But when you say your prayers tonight, if you’re glad to be alive, take a moment to thank God for the Original Incest.

So I created a Facebook page, called Protect Traditional Marriage.  I found a chart on The Masses Are Angry Blog, but Facebook would not let me link to that page because it was previously marked as abuse.   What sort of dastardly deeds could the chart portray that trigger the algorithmic banning ?

Why, it’s a diagram of traditional marriage structures found in the Bible!  See for yourself!

Here is the source where I found the chart, The Masses Are Angry Blog.  Now that I have the pic in a different URL, Facebook should let me paste this URL and link to it!

Here’s an excerpt of an email that I just wrote on Christianity and religion, with slight edits:

The bottom line is that we as humans are hardwired to seek a purpose, etc.  That purpose has always been survival.

Now that survival is no longer necessary in the evolutionary sense (a wooly mammoth is not going to trample me to death, and tiger is not going to eat me,) most people are lost without a purpose.

I am fine without a purpose, and I am not lost.  I am one of the lucky ones.

Most people fill it with a religion.  That helps with the fear of death, and the fear of meaninglessness.  I fear neither.

If you’re into reading, you may want to check out one of the books that explores all the ideas that the creators of Christianity stole from past religions.  Everything from the virgin birth was a copy of a past religion.

I know your God works in mysterious ways, but why is he copying these false pagan religions?
Or could it be, that Christianity  is man made, and the creators cherrypicked features from past religions?  

DING DING DING!!

A Facebook friend quoted Christian evangelist George Muller, “The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, & the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.”

Upon reading this, I rephrased it to include the appropriate definition of faith:  “The beginning of anxiety is the end of belief that is not based on proof, & the beginning of true belief that is not based on proof is the end of anxiety.”

This works perfectly for those that are willing to blindly follow a belief without ever examining it.  For those who yearn to be unthinking, unquestioning sheep, herded by a shepherd, surely it can not get more blissful than this.

However, those that value reason, logic, or  thinking could not vehemently disagree more.

On Sunday, some go to the house of illusions

It’s built on delusions, on your life, its intrusions

Say the good in humans and all of the love

Must come from some mysterious power up above.

 

Sinner, REPENT, you are nothing but scum

The snake oil we sell you take’s 10% of the sum

Of all of your work, and all of your toils

If you don’t pay the rent, in a lake of fire you’ll boil.

 

So indoctrinate your children, teach them not to think

From the start their potential will suddenly shrink.

Hate the sin, not the sinner, you pray, as you prey

On the abominations that genetics made gay

 

The millions of starving, all part of God’s plan

While you kneel to pray for a raise and more land.

So preach down to the sinners, from way up on high

As they wonder why the beam is stuck in your eye

Pass on your prejudice and pass on your hate,

If heaven existed, you’d be barred at the gate.
