More INSANITY from the people of the "Book."

The people of the "Book," Christians, Moslems and Jews BELIEVE the following excerpt from Exodus (12:29-30)...

"And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead." (Exodus 12:29-30)

Apparently, god wanted the Jews to leave Egypt. There were several ways he could handle this situation. He could have a chat with the Pharaoh and as a demonstration of his power he could flip a pyramid upside down, or spin it in the air or just have it turn into sand...what the heck he's god, right? But no, god decides to cold-bloodedly kill every firstborn from the Pharaoh's to not only the "captive...in the dungeon" but, just for the perverse thrill of it,..."all the firstborn of cattle." Maybe he was a vegan... who knows.

It is bad enough that these fools believe this nonsense, but worse that they worship this cold-blooded, mass murderer, worship him AND wish to spend eternity with him. INSANITY!

Surely, it's time for us to have done with such outrageous religions, such outrageous beliefs and put an end to the horrible perversity the believers of such nonsense have unleashed on this long suffering planet.

Religion - be gone!

Let's close the cover on the people of the "Book."

I think the time has come that the world should stop "accepting" "leadership" from the people of the "Book." As Bob Dylan sang, "... the times they are a-changin'..."

Think about this; Jews, Muslims and Christians, the people of the "Book," believe that a god, created the universe, made us in his image, gave us dominion over this cute little third planet from this sun, in this lovely galaxy, and then, in just one example of his many personal explicit crimes, he purposely drowned everyone, except for the a few of the "just" that could fit in Noah's boat. The god they believe in, from their own "book," is a self-confessed homicidal mass murderer!

That is not what's so alarming. More alarming is that, not only do these deluded people believe this nonsense, they actually worship the homicidal mass murderer that did this atrocity and countless others. They actually venerate him, and look forward to spending eternity "in his loving embrace."

Unfortunately, it gets even worse. All three religions believe their "Messiah" is going to come and deal with their enemies and save them...the humorous side of this is that each of the three "religions," and their literally thousands of sub-religions and cults, believe the other two religions, and their respective plethora of cults, are whom their "Messiah" is going to save them from...

The older I get the more I think John Lennon had it right in the 60's when he wrote...

"Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky...
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one."

Amusingly, the people of the "Book" I've talked to about this think I'm the one that's a few bricks short of a load.

Good Grief Charlie Brown!
