Excellent analogy... religion should be like bowling!

Quote:
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
What I want to happen to religion in the future is this: I want it to be like bowling. It's a hobby, something some people will enjoy, that has some virtues to it, that will have its own institutions and its traditions and its own television programming, and that families will enjoy together. It's not something I want to ban or that should affect hiring and firing decisions, or that interferes with public policy. It will be perfectly harmless as long as we don't elect our politicians on the basis of their bowling score, or go to war with people who play nine-pin instead of ten-pin, or use folklore about backspin to make decrees about how biology works. -PZ Myers, author, biology professor (b. 9 Mar 1957)

You gotta wonder...

If over 70 million people voted for Trump, and many think he is Jesus, come back as a fat woman who had a sex change operation (who, regardless, has a massive cult following - Jesus only had 12)... I think the evidence indicates that Jesus must have been a lying con man, too. But not as accomplished as the King of the Kons.

Is religion nothing more than a big, fat grift targeting the mentally ill? confused

Can be the mentally lazy, as well. Not a completely monolithic group.

4. Elisha and the Two Bears (2 Kings 2:23-25)
Introduction

23 Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!” 24 When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number. 25 And he went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria. Religion's problem! Bear deficiency!
