Religious lies. Why do we knowingly accept them?

People, I hope, are not foolish or gullible enough to really believe in the talking serpent and donkey of the bible nor the 72 virgins ot the Qur’an. I also hope their gullibility is not broad enough to have them swallow all the other supernatural ideas floated by religions. The ancients intelligently knew that nothing could be known of the supernatural.

Modern priests, preachers and imams ignore the unknowability of the supernatural constantly while lying to us about the Gods.

I do not want to believe that we are as gullible as some people seem to be.

Why then do you think we knowingly pay and suport priests, preachers and imams, perpetual liars in my view, to lie to us?

What this leads to is an understanding that most christian's do not actually believe in most of the Bible.

Most muslims do not believe most of the quran. Most jews don't believe most of the torah

Most North Koreans don't believe Little Rocket Man is god.

etc etc etc

We cut our own religions a lot of slack

Is a Nordic tradition for new chance. Socialism liked Sports and me too.


You seem to believe the lie of heaven.


Why would you trust in Jesus when so much of what he is said to have taught is immoral?


Like substitutionary atonement and his no divorce policy.

Not to argue or deny your words, but ---


In a sense, even the non-believers contribute to the continuation of the lies of religions via accepting religious tax breaks and subsidizing that tax relief by paying the shortfall that those tax breaks create.


That should be peeing off all non-believers.
