Ah one of the "earth-diver" types under the world egg philosophical views. That is an interesting read, thanks for sharing. Thumbsup

"the only existing thing created by Rod was World-egg in which rested Svarog, the divine creator. Under the influence of life forces, the egg is cracked open and create a light that shone Svarog and created its shadow, from which it originated Crnobog. Vodan, god of the sea and the water came from the glare of Svarogos old-sea."

I like -- "The planet had been found fully-formed in the navel of a giant earwig at four-thirty one Vroonday afternoon" Douglas Adams


It explains so much.....

Ultimately, the Pima story is no stupider than the bible bullshit story.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Exactly my point. I have long said I find them all equally ludicrous...well, Scientology does take it up a notch on the crazy scale, but yeah, all BS

Totally with you on that... I hesitated for a reeeally long time, trying to decide between them for my vote. Finally went with Scientology because, while we know that Smith was one of the most-impressively-convicted con men in history (prior to Madoff), Hubbard straight-up said he was going to invent a religion, then went out and did it, and people believe in it anyway.

You have to admit, that's just plain amazing. Hats off to you, sir!

I wonder if they give Charlatan of the Year™ awards, akin to Salesperson of the Year™ at car dealerships?

That is the amazing thing isn't it?
