Terry Pratchett on Religion

Video: Terry Pratchett on religion: ‘I’d rather be a rising ape than a fallen angel’



  1. The whole notion of a personal God that does not care about us for billions years of evolution and then suddenly, when we have evolved and become humans with a little bit of intelligence, appears in our lives, hiding behind the clouds of secrecy, telling us irrational stories through less than educated men whom he sends as messengers, demanding us to worship him or roast us for eternity in his cosmic rotisserie, does not make sense. The stories in so called divine books are absurd. The pathetic efforts of the apologists to explain and justify them are ridiculous. The teachings of these religions are no more applicable. They seem barbaric and outdated. Their definition of God, the next world, and the purpose of creation seem so primitive. Many of their social teachings are harsh and inhumane.
    Once religions are tested with rational thinking they fail miserably.
