Distinguishing fantasy from reality
Every Religion seems to have an uncanny pattern of talking animals,miracles,stupid and sometimes borderline retarded stories which mocks our suspension of disbelief.

I fail to realize how people can actually think that religion is ANYTHING but fiction.

I'm not against people believing in a higher power or a sentient God BUT PLEASE if you're blindly subscribing to these twisted,prehistoric loony toons then you seriously need to re-consider your sanity for the sake of humanity you CANNOT say with a straight face that these "Miracles" in religions books are anything but fiction.

If I already believe that miracles can happen, then why not. Also the catholic church i think kept going with some animal miracles. I think saint Francis could talk to animals.

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

I'm. Also homophobic in the same way I'm arachnophobic. I'm scared of spiders but I'd still fuck'em.

I dunno. Jesus's party tricks were pretty cool.

Water into wine? Can't knock that!

Anyone can talk to animals. Drinking Beverage

Replace Amen with... That's all folks! Sounds like a almost worthy prayer.

If it wasn't absurd, it wouldn't be worth writing down to try abs convince people it was real.

Takling animals are the most amazing and awsome part of any fiction.

The thing about the bible andd quoran and any other religious work that really pisses me off are the totalitarian laws they advocate.

The quoran itslef reads like a fascist guide to build a police state.

RE: Distinguishing fantasy from reality
Nearly 20 years ago I was agnostic theist. I squared a lot, if not all of it within myself as parable and metaphor. I encountered other theists who thought like me and others who swallowed the whole deal! Talking snakes, magic fruit, super powers ... everything. To the average fundamentalist who is brought up religious, you can see why they might believe it. If every adult in your life from birth consistently gives the same misinformation it's the truth to you. The people who made me uneasy were adult concerts who actively fought in their own heads against their knowledge of the real world.

A man blames his bad childhood on leprechauns. He claims they don't exist, but yet still says without a doubt that they stole all his money and then killed his parents. That's why he became Leprechaun-Man
