Another Black Quote

“I would like to believe the earth was created in six days, but the problem is that i think. And nothing fucks up faith more than a good thought.” –Lewis Black

Another awesome quote from Mr. Black. If put some good thought into any religon stories you will begin to notice a few things. First of all, you would probably notice that there is no way that the majority of these things actually happened things like noahs arc, burning bushes, talking snakes, evil apples, etc. Thats all nonsense. I find it really hard to believe that there are people who are in their 30s who think these were actual events that transpired. I remember being 10 in religious school and thinking “wait.. What? This sounds like the cartoons i watch on tv.” It blows my mind that there are fully grown adults who think that shit happened.

Another thing you will probably notice is that all religions are basically the same. They all basically teach the same principles, just with different characters and metaphors. They were just ways for primitive humans to try to get people to behave and maintain order, and also to explain things they knew nothing about. Thats it. No difference between the major religions of today and greek mythology, or short stories of today such as The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Was there actually ever a boy who was eaten by a wolf because he lied too many times about it at first? Who knows. Thats no the point. It doesn’t matter. The point is to have a simple story to kids not to lie.
