Sample text

And somehow, many Christians and Muslims still manage to interpret their ongoing military standoff and unbridgeable doctrinal differences as proof that God wants the killing to continue until their side has won or no one is left. Christian and Islamic doctrines are ultimately founded upon the same Hebrew Bible tales. Yet their reliance upon the Hebrew Holy Book seems unjustified, given God’s obvious failure to reward devout Hebrews with any outstanding military victories for several thousand years.

See also “The Holy Trinity uncovered” on page 113. Chapter Seven “Eternity” was the key Christian innovation Christianity’s convoluted doctrine was constructed in increments. Most of those sequentially added parts represented ultimately unsuccessful efforts by church authorities to plausibly position Christians as “God’s Chosen People”. For regardless of whether Jesus was eventually defined as a great prophet, or as the Son of God, or as an actual Chunk-of-God, Christianity would live or die on how many new followers it attracted and how completely it controlled them - so it urgently needed a way to reward the faithful and punish backsliders.

A strong Church doesn’t reason, it demands A) All Christians will pray to the God we have postulated. Or else! B) All Christians will support His self-declared representatives in proper style even if donors then do without. C) All Christians will accept the unlikely notion that God has manufactured and installed billions of undetectable entities known as souls. * *See A World Lit Only by Fire by William Manchester. * *See also “Abortion and the Human Soul” on page 80. Of course, it was never made clear how one illogical and hateful hypothesis the Christian God (one of whose clever redesigns - reported in Revelations was hordes of locusts that stung like scorpions and caused such great pain for five months that men wished they were dead) could force another purely evil hypothesis (the Christian Devil, over whom God had no apparent control) to reliably deliver God’s unjust punishments.
