This doctrine is more disputed than any other. Salvation, sign of covenant replacing circumcision, profession of faith, receiving of holy spirit. Blood had spilled over this, and loads of wasted ink.

It seems to have as much to do with a human sacrifice to atone for kids jerking off.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
- Paul Dirac

If you do it right, it scares The Devil out of them.

It reminds God of that one time he drowned every living thing on the planet, which makes him so happy he decides to let one more person into that "Let's suck up to God" club.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

They claim it washes away sin. But I think it started as a way to sober up the people who had a little too much sacrificial wine.

RE: What the hell is baptism for?
There are two schools of thought on what baptism is supposed to be. RCC and many reformation churches believe it's to wash away the original sin committed by A and E or whoever the first humans were if you don't believe in a literal creation story in Genesis. Others, normally fundies, baptists, etc believe baptism is an external sign demonstrated by a believer as a means to show your faith to a congregation of an inner working grace. In the latter case, it's not critical to your salvation.
