Question. Say you wake up one fine morning and you switch on the news and Lo! the woman with the plastic smile informs you that all religions have been abolished and that all the devotees of this good earth have gone back to doing more sensible things like (please insert sensible human activity of your choice / or what you would rather see the devotees doing if they were not bogged down by ritual – mine involves flamingos – don’t ask!)
What would you miss the most? which aspect of organized religion would you look back on with innocent nostalgia? say whenever you see a picture of Santa in the local museum and mutter to yourself “man those were the days..”
Personally I’d miss that oh so delightful feeling of feeling morally superior to the pious. Its what puts a smile on my face whenever I hear a fatwa declared in my name.
