To those offended by my “Jeeeesus!” snippet I would like you to know I was brought up strictly religiously, probably like you, until I found it necessary to join the ninety two per cent of rational thinkers out there.
You see, I was made to read the Bible from cover to cover, until I could recite most of it, but I bow to those of you who understand it.
From Genesis to Revelations it appeared to me to be nothing but illogical, mythical nonsense. I may be wrong, so I ask you to explain to me only the first piece of apparent nonsense:
Cain, the son of Adam and Eve, slew his brother Abel, in the fields. God was displeased and placed a mark on Cain’s forehead and sent him into the land of Nod so all who came across him would not slay him but cast him out.
Incest aside, who the hell are all these people in the land of Nod?
You want hundreds more pieces of nonsense? There’s a whole chapter and verse book of them you can have a go at explaining.
Anyway, neither Christianity nor Islam has a history to be proud of, so I’ll leave both well alone thankyou.
Oh, and you are welcome, in fact ecouraged, to challenge my beliefs, that’s what this blog is all about, so allow me the courtesy of challenging yours now and again, eh?.
