“There's an obvious and fundamental flaw in Abrahamic religion: a deity which claims that morality is obedience but which speaks only through intermediaries. Confronted by a prophet, a layman has to choose whether to obey or disobey but is given no framework with which to make his decision. Such a religion will constantly bifurcate, in an unwinnable struggle between charlatans and reformers. It's almost impossible to imagine that such a religion could be any other way than this.”
