If I owned a magic wand I would make every religion that has ever been known to man disappear. Catholicism, Islamism, Protestantism, Judaism,  Baptism, those Latter Day Saint whackos, the lot, even the Salvos who have been politicised and hijacked by the money men.

Goooorne! … it would be illegal to practise the symbolic eating of human flesh and the drinking of human blood. It would be illegal to indoctrinate and baptise innocent little kids into horrible fear- and hate-filled occults.

Cathedrals would be turned into art galleries and mosques into council atriums. Treks to Mecca would only be for pop concerts, the Vatican would have a giant garage sale for a month of Sundays and donate the receipts to the poor.

Practising Ramadan would be permissible, but only for the full year.

Popes and Cardinals would have proper jobs on floats at the gay mardi gras with honest day jobs as car salesmen and solicitors.

The clergy would find boring jobs in the ABC promoting global warming, nuns would run phone sex hotlines and do outcalls for frustrated priests, leaving little choirboys free to climb trees and kick footballs.

Muslims caught with their bums in the air would receive instant enemas with fire hoses and Imams and Mullahs would be available for experiments in taxidermy and cadaver decomposition rates.

No more sadistic images of some poor bugger nailed to a cross, no more nonsense about pregnant virgins or 72 unpregnant ones. 

Politicians would have to stop asking some old bloke in the sky for advice (which has never worked that well) and start thinking for themselves and prayers to open Parliament would be replaced with dirges like, “Good old Collingwood forever…”.

The increase in global productivity would ensure there are no more financial meltdowns and there would be no reason to hate anything at all,

… except for Collingwood of course.

I would too. Religion is plain stupid. They tell us that Jesus is God’s only son but also tell us that we are all God’s children. If so, then Jesus was not an only child and nothing special. If you actually believe that there is a super being in the sky that made and controls everything then your brain is seriously fucked up. Religion was only created to control the ignorant masses. If they won’t obey the king then perhaps they’ll obey a superior being would have been the thought process. Once police forces came along then religion should have… Read more »

So you have waved your magic wand and all religions have been eliminated. What is going to replace the moral lessons that Christianity espouses which built the edifice you know as the Western world. Who or what is going to keep the strong from dominating the weak. Who or what is going to stop you from doing what you want, to whoever you want, whenever you want. Do you really think that the world would be a better place to live without the influence of Christianity? If you do just look at what is happening in Iraq. That’s the result… Read more »

Religions require you to adopt a set of beliefs and rules and follow them unquestioningly, with a fervour. I don’t think there is any pre-requisite to author a religion – you just need a Supreme Being, a compliance list to ensure a tax free status, a fertile imagination, and the time get it up and running. There are currently around 750 religions in the world (not including cults or global warming) so there have been a few with the desire and the time to give it a go.

He comes up with interesting stuff. When he said he was God he lost me though.

It is a shame you never studied the Mystical meaning of all main religions and only used 3D vision to judge those who came to give humanity a path to becoming God.

The trouble with -isms is that there are some people in the world who need that guidance and potential threat of what happens in the afterlife to keep them on the straight and narrow.
Of course, without the -isms, there would also be less problems putting those in society who seek to harm others (through beliefs or drugs) to death.

Agreed… Shall we be called the new gods, because most humans need someone or something to worship because most can’t believe in themselves and shall we charge them an admission fee? Whoops that’s where we started!

As I suggested before Girlie, you read a bit more, all of it. I can give chapter and verse if you are too lazy.

He isn’t the only one, SG obviously did not attend a Church school. Read the Bible Lady, Jack is spot on. Or are you like the rest and only believe the bits you like, and all the rest is out of context.

mh – great and kind post. Good to have someone come on this blog who knows his subject and is prepared to share his knowledge, rather then the many who pump themselves up at the expense of others.

Im in the same mode of thinking Larry—–Religion is full of anger,spite,paedophelia—-greed—-IT has started most Wars.The reality is there is no solid facts to support most of their beliefs—wave the magic wand and be gone with religion —-forever.
