This tweet piqued my interest in how Dawkins might have described the omnibeast worshipped by so many.
@sandrider69: @RichardDawkins I have just read the opening salvo of Chapter 2 The God Delusion. There cannot be a more entertaining paragraph anywhere!
Excerpted from “The God Delusion”, by Richard Dawkins
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. Those of us schooled from infancy in his ways can be desensitized to their horror.
Those two sentences from that paragraph ring true. Dawkins accurately describes characteristics of the omnibeast as it and its acts are described in its own holy anthology.
It still gives me pause to experience the high degree of denial, dismissal, and irrational reasoning necessary to describe the beast as king, gentle, and loving. Amazing.
You know, I’m not highly vested on either side of the existence of an historical Jesus Christ. I actually think the character is mostly good and useful, up to the whole living dead thing.
While I’ve seen a small number of huggable zombies in movies, christianity’s creation of a zombie god myth as the son of a magical god is far too irrational to entertain as realistic.
Not wishing to provoke the ire of believers, I’ve awaited the absolute truth of the hard evidence of a small number of little known scholars to announce proof that an historical Jesus Christ is nothing more than a wispy shadow of an early zombie character.
Now before the heads of any god fearing christians explode at the irrationality of non-belief, allow me this. You guys created (oops) “bible science”, “creation science”, and a 6,000 year old universe pooped into existence by magic. I get to play with Zombie Jesus.
Did the historical Jesus exist? A growing number of scholars don’t think so
This is wrong on so many levels. The video itself is unsurprising, typical, and boring. The possessed woman was unemployed for 6.5 years, loves sex, and claims much anger.
Oh, the demon that entered through sex is the cause. Condom, STD, birth control jokes anyone?
Of course, that isn’t pitiful enough, but this might be. Put on your favorite full face helmet, Google the phrase “sexually transmitted demons”, start head slapping.
