Religion isn’t Stupid, it’s Genius!

Religion isn’t stupid, it’s genius! Think about it. What scam in the history of scams has enjoyed even a tenth of the success that religion has enjoyed? It has amassed in the trillions from the sale of tickets to a non-existent place. It has profited immeasurably by selling a cure for a disease that does not exist and it has achieved boundless wealth and authority by convincing its gullible marks that only it can garner the favour of an imaginary wizard in the sky who, it alleges, is the only character with sufficient power to defeat a terrifying boogieman, who also happens to be the creative design of this amazingly brilliant scam. Religion can kill in the millions and not only will people not object and rebel against such vile villainy, they’ll turn to it in the hopes of finding an end to the violence it has caused. Religion is without a doubt one of the most brilliant scams in the history of scams and the cherry on this scam is that it is free, and tax-free, to kill and exploit whilst avoiding legal consequences for its criminal conduct. One of the secrets to the success of this scam is that it turns families into subsidiary, self-perpetuating cults, so that its targets become the unwitting perpetrators of the scam that they were scammed into buying before their minds had a chance to reject the obvious absurdities that have in no way hindered the remarkable success of this self-perpetuating scam.

  1. This is the kind of thing comedians uncover in their observations, such as when George Carlin said, “When it comes to bullshit, big time, major-league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time grand champion of false promises and exaggerated claims: religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man, up in the sky, watching everything you do every minute of every day. And this invisible man has a list of Ten Special Things He Does Not Want You to Do, and if you do any of those ten things he’s got a place to put you full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever until the End of Time. But he loves you. He loves you, and he NEEDS MONEY. He’s all-knowning, all-wise, all-powerful, just can’t seem to handle money. Religion takes in billions of dollars a year, they pay no taxes and they always need a little more. Now you talk about a good bullshit story, holy shit!”

    And then there was Jon Stewart who quipped, “Religion: It’s given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.”

  2. Did a damn good job turning relative barbarians into civilised people though… however much it now keeps relatively civilised people acting barbarically.
