    Religion is still the greatest con ever perpetuated on the human species.

    Truly. It’s stunning, this mindset inculcated into the receptive minds of children, as in the previous quote, that allows one to hold two mutually exclusive ideas. Almost as though they’ve have their brain partitioned by application of faith. How else to explain how people who behave rationally in their day to day lives can believe at once in the germ theory of disease and that Muhammad literally rode to heaven on a flying horse or that a priest can change a shitty little wafer into, literally, the body of a 2000 year old zombie?

    Faith is like metaphysical HPV – most people have it, in most it’s benign, but in a significant proportion it kills you. As with HPV, there is a preventive that is best applied when young.
