This blog will now engage in twenty four hours of silence as a show of respect for the all those who have suffered at the hands religious zealots around the world and throughout history.
I say this out of inspiration from a post written on Pharyngula by biologist PZ Myers. PZ makes the link between medieval anti-Semitic church law and the original idea that the Eucharist is holy. You must read his post, the best written and most meaningful thing on the internet this day. Here.
Here is a photograph of the staged ‘desecration’ worked out by PZ, in which we see the Eucharist, pages form the Qur’an, and pages from The God Delusion and some coffee grounds all mixed up in the trash. The Eucharist has been pierced with a rusty nail.
But wait, what’s that I see there…..
…. on the Banana Peel …..
Let’s see if we can blow that up …
click click click clickity click (did you every wonder why TV computers never have a mouse) click click clickity click. .. OK, how’s this?
Jesus’ Tits, Margaret! If that ain’t a picture of Jesus himself them I’m a monkey’s nephew. And I AM a monkey’s nephew!!!!
It is almost like the rusty nail is pointing right at the Image Of Christ! I can see the thorns in his forehead and everything. Won’t Richard Dawkins be surprised!!!!
Well, clearly, the 24 hours of silence is off…
