Happy Day, Phat man!

Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

Re: 62 Years Old Today--September 19th
But if you agree with Tangle that everything possibly known and experienced originate with the written characters in the book you can throw the characters away with the book.

I'm thinking maybe what Tangle was referring to was that there is only the book. There is no independent confirmation that any of the myths (or characters, outside historical name-dropping) ever existed as presented.

But this dichotomy of book from character(s) is false. The whole thing is the major propaganda tool of the abrahamics and their evil philosophies, evil morals and evil actions. The presentation of fantasy as reality is bad enough but religion's insistence they be obeyed under penalty of torture and death (in both this life and the fictitious next) is abhorrent to every humanist worthy of the name.

So throwing the tomb in the trash, characters and all, is an excellent way to keep its poison from infecting more innocent minds.

If you despise Jesus ...

The characters mean nothing. They are but actors on stage reading a script written by the priests. The use of these myths, however, is what I despise. Your entire religion, indeed all religions, are formed and operated to accumulate wealth, influence, power for the priests and the brutal warlords they serve.

Religion has taken the worst of human thought and action and elevated it to the level of a righteous movement. Human life means nothing and is expendable to the greater glory of their god and their church's power over the masses.

This is despicable.

Religion needs to end.

You need an argument against a Higher Power in general.

An argument against a rainbow-striped unicorn? Really, Phat?
