“Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing.”
~ Hypatia (370 - 415 AD)
"it would be in the interests of those who believe in such nonsense as organised religion or creationism to accept the fact that religious books were written by men as a control system."
“Just think for one second,
* if ‘God’ or a ‘messenger of God’ had written that particular religious book/bible, how come the writings only occur within a very limited period in human history?
* Also, consider the fact, that a human writing on a piece of paper, or a few pieces of paper, is not the word of ‘God’.
* If they were really written by a universal God or entity, the books would not be limited to some pre-medieval costume drama but would encompass all universality, history, the future and science.
* Language is something created by man, not an all-seeing, all encompassing entity.
* God would presumably be universal and timeless as well as all-knowing, as is the universe, therefore these man-written books and scriptures, are just that, man-written linguistically created nonsense used to control men and women thousands of years ago.
*Why would ‘God’ write anything anyway?
* One must consider the fact that, even now, there are religious zealots and ordinary people still entrenched in a control belief system that is so far removed from reality that it borders on madness.
* There is no rational or scientific way that organised religions can have a modicum of truth or factual reality because of the very reason that these books are entombed in the time that they were written.
*These books should therefore simply be viewed as limited parables and historical fiction, as well as a lesson in how millions of people can be so easily controlled.”
