“Religion has actually convinced people that there`s an invisible man -- living in the sky -- who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do..And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever `til the end of time! ...But He loves you.”

-George Carlin

“Imagine a future in which millions of our descendants murder each other over rival interpretations of Star Wars or Windows 98. Could anything - anything - be more ridiculous? And yet, this would be no more ridiculous than the world we are living in.”

-Sam Harris

when a christian is laughing along with you

&

enjoying your presence,

at work or while in a social context

&

then somehow by some random comment

the fact that you do not believe in the work of fiction

they abide by

or

worship that infamous underdeveloped dramatic

character from

nazareth

as they do,

you may get to see a human face quickly wrinkle up in

disgust or anger

as if a pug

was crossbred with some kind of wild boar

whose snarling would wake up the neighbors

& whose filthy idiotic grumblings

are made only with the

purest absolute self-righteous certainty,

with a dash of condescension &

a couple handfuls of hope that there is in fact a

place where everybody who doesn’t believe as they

do

will

one

day

finally

burn.

 

you may get to even see them turn completely around,

walking away from you as if you have suddenly lost

all substance as a human being &

while from out of the woodwork will come those that

say

“we are not all like that,”

the fact remains,

they believe in the same ridiculous

fairytales.

 

they have read the book of revelation

they hope in their hearts that when their savior comes

that he will wash the earth clean of

scum like you

so that they will no longer have to answer any

questions

about the validity of their claims &

they can all live happily ever after

baaaaaaa-ing in unison

& relishing in the fact that their enemies got their just

desserts.
