IndianAtheist, how much more of this stuff do you want?

Hinduism provides an almost endless supply of religious insanity.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Catholics think that crappy little wafers that stick to the roof of your mouth have been turned into the actual body of Christ...that's pretty out there.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Not to mention all the cigarette burns and coffee stains that look like Jesus.

I once made toast and the burn marks looked vaguely like a human face. Jesus was human, therefore it was Jesus.

Pareidolia? No, never heard of it.

CHECKMATE, ATHEISTS.

Never gets old Smile

RE: In the limit, religion and reason both lead to the absurd.
The only vision I ever saw was out on a country road near where I grew up. If you drove down the road and turned around back toward town you could see an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

So of course, BVM road (as it became known) was the main road to go parking on.

Blasphemy I tell you! Damn kids.

Wonder if she's still there.

Well, my unrestrained taken-by-surprise laugh sounds more like Mozart from Amadeus, but, yeah.

Never gets old.

Not just Roman Catholics, the Eastern Orthodox Church also. You need to read about the East-West Schism and the Protestant Reformation.

Ah yes, the East-West schism, sigh!

Of course there are those that argue that it is really a West-East schism.

One can't help but be reminded of the the Life of Brian.

Trust me that's the tip of the iceberg.. alternative medicine in India is really a million dollar business which is quite frankly wasting people's money and risking their lives...
