Counter weight to Christianity; Zorastra

#1  Postby Chris Wilkins » Feb 26, 2010 4:22 pm

If you want to deal Christianity a death blow, rip its head off and make it squirm in dying agony, then you need to create a diversion. A bit like giving a dog a plastic bone to chase while you carefully get out an iron hammer you are going to hit it on the head with.

And for that you need a counterweight religion.

So how about we revive Zorastra?

All bow down and praise Mithra.

Any takers, anyone?

Mithra? I'd prefer Crom.

you mean Zoroaster right ? ancient Persian dude ?:D
well i don't think attacking or destroying would be the best way to describe it .
i personally rather don't hit the dog with the iron hammer and give it a real bone and send it after its life . :D
but im with you with the blending peaceful religions with Christianity ( or other religions ) to separate the majority of the people who are just looking for that core stuff which religions get people attracted with and prove it exists elsewhere as well .
if you can convert a religious person to another religion , it will teach them how religions works and washes all the holiness that they could see in Christianity and cant find in lets say in local book club !
for example , imagine a crowed of random people who are watching a illusionist perform a card really impossible card trick for the first time in there life , and they will be like " wow ! what are you man ! " and then he show's them how it is done and in a min after that he does another trick simile to the last trick . imagine how the crowed will act after the second trick :P .

Hey Chris,

great to see you here.

Of course its not a purpose of this community to destroy Christianity or any of the 40k odd other religious groups. Its to promote reason and science as a way of understanding reality and making meaningful decisions in the world.

Of course, that hasn't stopped some very clever people from creating the important, and true, religion of the Pastafarians, who worship The Flying Spaghetti Monster, as a form of meaningful satire. Perhaps you too may be blessed by the touch of his noodly appendage.
Atheist. Ozzie.
