"The inhabitants of the earth are of two sorts: those with brains, but no religion, and those with religion, but no brains."
~ Al-Ma’arri, Arab poet & Freethinker
f the pagan period, has often been compared to Dante’s Divine Comedy. Al-Ma’arri’s poetry was renowned for his unflinching religious skepticism:

'But if the gods do not exist at all - then we are lost,' I said.'On the contrary - we are found!' said Aesop.'But when we are afraid, who can we turn to, if not the gods?''Ourselves.

Ruth, if you think THAT is bad, try this on for size: I gave them statutes that were not good and ordinances by which they could not live. I defiled them through their very gifts, in their offering up all their firstborn, in order that I might horrify them, so that they might now that I am the LORD. -- Ezekiel 20:25-26Now, somebody tell me: HOW FUCKED UP IS THAT???
