    Epic derail, my man. Anyway, I'd like to hear more of CC's thoughts here. Oh, and I'd like to say (belatedly) that I sympathize with sassafrassquatch. I still think that you may be painting religiosity with too broad a brush, but the story of your upbringing really got to me. No one should go through abuse like that.

    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. - Richard Dawkins
    Ah, thanks to CC for this quote. I'd been looking for it, and here it is.

    The above is taken from Dawkins' The God Delusion. Alvin Plantiga opens a short, amusing polemic with this quote, and then proceeds to dissect the book.

    If you've not read it, and you're up for a quick, mental workout, you can find it here.

    Select all

    Paste into Word

    Find "God"

    Replace with "Quetzalcoatl" or "Zeus" or "Aten" or "Uhura Mazda" or "Brahman" etc.

    Sounds exactly like most of Mark Twain's quotes about God.
