"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful." .. (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

I think that’s called Scientology.

Conveniently, it has already sucked in lots of rich people and successfully infiltrated the IRS in the past, so

"One way to look at it is this: The whole point of establishing a corporation is to create an entity separate from oneself to limit legal liability. Therefore, Hobby Lobby is asking for special protections/liability limits that only a corporation can get on the one hand, and special protections that only individuals, churches and religious organizations get, on the other. It seems awfully dangerous to allow corporations to have it both ways."

The Right Wing justices have enabled christians to cherry pick laws and treat people with prejudice.

  • Question: I don't know where cosmogyros' sister got her information, but "devil" comes from "deofol" (Old English) which originally comes from the Greek "diabolos" (accuser, calumniator, slanderer, traducer) from "diaballein" (to slander, traduce, literally "to throw across") from the prefix "dia-" (through) and the verb "ballein" (to cast). The prefix has nothing to do with the PIE words *dyeu- or *dewos; in fact, it comes from the root of "duo" ("two" or "twice.") (Source: Oxford English Dictionary) - dailyetymology

    Whoops, never posted this, so it’s in reference to an old reblog. Still, the etymology of “devil” is pretty cool. Thanks!

i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake

i mean they did also kill jesus. that was a pretty significant thing that happened. like i understand where you’re coming from here but they very much did kill jesus.

Yeah but that was part of some weird Jehovah induced Xanatos gambit to absolve humanity of its own sins that he instigated himself in order to make humanity worship him en masse. Not sure it counts.

  • Question: Do you intended to grow a bread that rivals the great Alan Moore's? - zarmyn
  • Answer:

    neil-gaiman:

    Until now I had thought Alan Moore’s bread-growing skills were a secret, known only to those who had visited his kitchens and seen the bubbling tubs of sourdough, smelled the soursweet yeasty goodness of the place, watched the tendrils of dough creep along the counter, stroke each other, exchange material and grow higher and further, before being placed into the massive Moore bread ovens.  But obviously the secret is now out.

    I do not intend to compete in the bread-growing department with Alan Moore, a man whose bread is legendary and unique.

Ok but: Muslims in space. How do they pray? You know? This really bothers me. This should be addressed in more science fiction.

Toward earth?

Malaysia (a Muslim country) actually came up with answers to these questions after they had a few astronauts launched into orbit.
