If you’re not convinced of the Flying Spaghetti God’s existence, this may convince you not to believe in the Invisible Pink Unicorn either. If so, I’ve done a service by posting it.
Discovered this gem over at Atheist Mind.
Marx famously said, “Religion is the opiate of the people.” I disagree. Religion, in my view, is the delivery system for what we deeply crave, similar to a needle delivering heroin. The drug is powerfully deadly because it satisfies a deep craving, but at a huge cost to our real world awareness. Unfortunately, the needle can be at least as dangerous. An ideal religion is one that is both sterile and sharp, delivering its message with a minimum of disruption and little chance of subsequent infection.
