“All religions are based in fictions: in hinduism it’s how after all the lives spent in samsara, the individuated soul-drop merges with the Ocean of Being and is lost forever; in judaism, it’s original sin and the existence of a jealous and vengeful God; in buddhism and modern scientism, it’s that individual consciousness is only an illusion created by the bodymind’s cathection of dualistic experience; in islam it’s that Allah rewards those who kill infidels and thereby receive 72 virgins in paradise; and in christianity it’s immaculate conception, virgin birth, and Jesus as the only savior son of God, not a son of man.”

“Radical islamists and conservative christians equally crave theocracy, the most ignorant, primitive, and destructive form of governance and enemy of all that is naturally good about human beings, and so should see each other as allies in the same battle instead of competitors for the same fool’s gold.”

“The recipe for militant religious fundamentalist stew: start with the spoiled meat of a fictitious willful & jealous god; add the broth of the insane belief any human can know absolute truth; season with the garlic of a smug arrogance; stir in a pinch of the herb of elitist exclusivism; sauté in the lard of rabid righteousness; bake in an oven of tradition for thousands of years; mix in a red sauce of psychopathic narcissism; and serve on a hot plate of judgment how anyone who disagrees with you deserves death or goes to hell.”
