Something has been puzzling me recently...

Jesus. Virgin Mary. Mohammed. Moses. Buddah. 'Issa. David Hasselhoff.

What do all these people have in common? They are all born of earth, non-celestial beings. Non of them have claimed to be a god, and they actually teach/preach ABOUT God, encouraging others to pray and worship him.

So why is it that people pray to and worship the above-mentioned people?
It just doesn't make sense to me...

Here is a contempory view:
A Celebrity's agent gives people the celebrities phone number. Those people then call the AGENT, in hopes of speaking to the celebrity, even though they have the resources to speak the celebrity directly.

Anyone able to shed some light onto this matter?



(Yes, David Hasselhoff was a joke, by the way)

Yeh that one of the reasons i became religionless


The last religion i got into was Islam and i was pretty dedicated to worshiping God...but Muslims keept telling me i had to do things that were outside of the Quran...
and the Quran even says that no religion on earth is right...so now i just dont worry about religion as a whole, my life is just so much easyer and expandable...i can hang out with any culture and not have to worry about wheather i should eat there food or that they may be doing a sin and so on...

Free you're Soul, unite mankind!

You should start your own religion, prolly be lots of people feeling the same way. LOL
Call it "The Church of No Religion".

Sounds like you're ready for J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius.

>DISCLAIMER< This is not an endorsement. But it IS pretty funny.

And if you get past that, there's always Discordianism which was said to have been the inspiration to Robert Shea & R.A. Wilson for The Illuminatus! Trilogy.
