The Cracker Whacker

As a recovering Catholic, I have to say that PZ Myers’ final post on the Cracker Debacle is right on the mark, as is his last comment. Go read it.

  1. How perfect to have the “atheist’s dilemma”, the banana, on top. All so silly, but I love the end and the final paragraph.

    Since I’m on a Sabbath kick, here’s Hand of Doom which is about drug addiction and pushing the needle in to escape reality. Well what’s the biggest drug in the world? It’s that god crap. It makes you confuse crackers and kidnapped children, and worry more about stolen crackers than molested children.

  2. To highlight the paragraph The Chief is referring to:

    By the way, I didn’t want to single out just the cracker, so I nailed it to a few ripped-out pages from the Qur’an and The God Delusion. They are just paper. Nothing must be held sacred. Question everything. God is not great, Jesus is not your lord, you are not disciples of any charismatic prophet. You are all human beings who must make your way through your life by thinking and learning, and you have the job of advancing humanity’s knowledge by winnowing out the errors of past generations and finding deeper understanding of reality. You will not find wisdom in rituals and sacraments and dogma, which build only self-satisfied ignorance, but you can find truth by looking at your world with fresh eyes and a questioning mind.
