It's a funny, clever,  but sad cartoon, and is the nub of the issue of religion: religion determines reality based on wishes, not facts.  "Faith is believing what you know ain't so." (Mark Twain)

I tried for years as a seeker to bolster my fragile faith with books on Christian Apologetics such as Josh McDowell's "Evidence That Demands A Verdict", and I would suggest that a fairly decent case could be made for all of it, except for one thing:

It wouldn't need enough.

"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." (Carl Sagan)

And the claims are fabulous indeed.

Too fabulous to be credible by any sensible person who is honest enough to put aside hopes of an afterlife.



Atheist Quote of the Day

"Religion is like having a classroom where the students have to show up every day, but there's no teacher. There are a bunch of books around and no one is even sure which on is the text book. Some students insist on one book; others argue just as hard for another. Then suddenly, on the last day, the teacher appears and says he's been watching everybody the whole time. He praises the ones who chose the right text book and sends them off to have cookies and milk.

And then he sets everyone else on fire."
