So I was just on facebook and I saw that someone I knew posted "2011 IS GOING TO BE ALL ABOUT WORSHIP", and about 11 people commented and "liked" it. I wish Facebook had a "dislike" button or a "This is fucking idiotic" button. The status just made me instantly angry. So to understand this person correctly, they plan to spend 2011 on their knees worshiping an invisible non-interfering god from iron age Palestine. Sorry...let me go over it again...I can't quite grasp the stupidity of it all...They plan to spend 2011 paying respect and worship to the bush burning, animal burning, human sacrificing, genocidal, misogynistic desert god of iron age Palestine?! The same god that is only mentioned in a book that some goat herding nomads of the desert scribbled down while going mad under the hot sun while they wore goat skins, smelled like goats, married goats, and sacrificed goats?!?? Am I the only one who sees the insanity in such a thing? Apparently 11 people on facebook thought it was a great idea....They're all mentally ill...that's the only explanation.

Technically they believe in a personal god.  So they do believe in a deity that interferes in the natural world from time to time.  My stance however is that there is no evidence for there ever being supernatural interference in the natural world.  And that if the Judeo-Christian god was proven to exist then we should collectively hold a trial for it committing crimes against humanity.

In late December 2002, my sister asked me to attend a church revival with her.  My belief status was neutral at the time.  Things were going fine until the pastor said, "2002 was the year for you; 2003 is the year for me".  And I thought, really?  It gets to be all about us for a year?  But then I realized he was speaking from the perspective of god.

 

And I thought, great, god.  Tell us that 2002 is the year for us right when it's ending.  Jerk.

You are so funny! The "animal burning, human sacrificing....so freaking true! You are NOT the only one who sees the insanity. They should not only have a "dislike button" but they should have a button that says,"Retarded." Bunch of retards. But funny retards! At least they make me laugh!
