"Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1896)

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"

I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

God Belief - The Meme Thought Virus

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Image from : Atheists Online

MEME: (pron. `meem') A contagious information pattern that replicates by symbiotically infecting human minds and altering their behavior, causing them to propagate the pattern.

God belief is like a thought virus which sets up residence within our minds. It feeds on emotional insecurities, fear of the unknown, fear of death, psychological insecurities and our all encompassing egotistical states. It replicates itself into the minds of our children through the indoctrination and assimilation of culture, and mutates in following generations in order to survive.
Dawkins is right on the money when he says that religions claim a privileged position from which criticism is seen as blasphemy. And, it was, of course against the law in many nations for hundreds of years to in any way, suggest that religion was wrong. It has maintained this position of political privilege because it sleeps with the political parties of each country. It whores itself out in the political arena where it promises the votes of its followers and demands as payment for services rendered, political protection and, if it can get it, religious exclusivity.

"It is fashionable to wax apocalyptic about the threat to humanity posed by the AIDS virus, "mad cow" disease, and many others, but I think a case can be made that faith is one of the world's great evils, comparable to the smallpox virus but harder to eradicate." - Richard Dawkins (The Humanist, Vol. 57, No. 1)

When I saw that image (evolution of superstition), the thought that went through my head was that this would make a great t-shirt. I'm glad I clicked on the link because I think I'm going to have to get one of these.

Awesome drawing. But doesn't the kid thinking "Dear Santa Claus" look kinda too big to you? Makes him look like he's 13 years old.

The "god part" of my brain is broken, only the rational part remains.

RE mojoey:

The "god part" of my mind was created by a "thought virus" ;)
