  2. Marcus Sulivan says:

    Didn’t Hitch call it a bad weekend on the cross?

  3. Succubus ov Satan says:

    Call it what it is – a celebration and reveling in bloodthirsty human sacrifice

  4. M27Holts says:

    We don’t need more pigeons here…bloody thousands of the feathery fookers! And my Mrs is scared of them !

  5. Plonker says:

    My goat has escaped!

  6. latent2patent says:

    I found a goat.

    A perfect rerun for the Jewish Day of Atonement. Thank you for the LOLs!

  8. jb says:

    Makes sense to me. If someone from your clan commits an offense against my clan then someone from your clan must be punished to make it right. Doesn’t have to be the same person. (Or of course you could always just pay the wergild or something).

  9. jveeds says:

    I sometimes think of this analogy: Your brother (or sister) does something very bad and your parents find out. Maybe they shoplifted. The parents go to punish the misbehaving child but you offer…insist…on taking their punishment so that they will shoplift no more.

  10. Vinnie Vidivici says:

    Well, since the “sin” is one I actually didn’t commit (Eve’s disobedience), and only god and nutters care about, someone else stepping in to take the fall doesn’t bother me too much.

  11. M27Holts says:

    The God and Nutter….should be the new name for the pub….

  12. Donn says:

    It’s sick, but it’s awfully clever. Who’s going spit on this gift, poor Jesus doing all that suffering for our wholly undeserved redemption?

  13. M27Holts says:

    There is nothing clever that was thought up by spunk wombles who thought that the earth was flat, the sun went round the earth and that the wheel is as far as human technology will go…the fact that anybody in the 21st century takes it seriously is a frightening endictment on our continuing struggle to cast off superstition and relegate the bad idea of religion into the dustbin of history…

  14. jb says:

    Would Jesus have actually thought the earth was flat? The Greeks had proved the earth was round centuries earlier, and Greek cultural influence was strong in that part of the world (as demonstrated by the fact that the New Testament was written in Greek). Of course that doesn’t mean your average Aramaic speaking carpenter would have known about it. But he might have. (Perhaps from observing the Coriolis force on falling sparrows…).

  15. M27Holts says:

    You can give mythical characters whatever super powers you want to…thats the point. Only christian apologist historians make Jesus a real flesh and blood sap, and he never existed…just another example of religious nuttery given a false historical.basis by too many historians who should know better…

  16. M27Holts says:

    A real Father Christmas? Just as likely as a real Jesus…

  17. M27Holts says:

    Though didn’t Hitch lament the defeat of the hellenistic Jews by the retarded religious Jews thus taking middle east culture backwards by a millennia?

  18. Donn says:

    I’d imagine it was a question that really didn’t come up, in a serious way. We have a sort of comprehensive knowledge of a complete world, that fundamentally depends on its being round; they knew only rumors of what lay beyond their immediate region. Round or flat, it was the same mystery to them.

    I’m generally of the opinion there were multiple historical Jesuses, but thinking about Christianity’s insidious psychological gimmick, I wonder if the more interesting question is who came up with the basic ideas. Jesus themselves maybe, but I doubt. Is there a documented prior religion where the deity takes over the sacrifice business and sacrifices itself? Kind of rings a bell, but I can’t identify anything right off hand.

  19. Son of Glenner says:

    Donn: I believe it was said that Odin/Wotan sacrificed himself to himself by being attached (nailed?) to a tree (Yggdrasil?). He had previously sacrificed one eye (to whom I’m not sure, but not himself) in order to receive great knowledge. Very few, if any, people believe in Odin/Wotan now, so his sacrifice obviously was not worth it!

  20. Rrr says:

    Donn et al: ISTR (vaguely) that a very similar theme occurs in Egyptian lore, in the form of Isis. Which incidentally seems suspiciously similar to Iesus, no?
    A Deity, Son of Sun, is sacrificed for the sake of the credulous Humanity for ever and ever.
    Amen. (Or Amon)

  21. Donn says:

    Interesting. It looks to me like no one is quite sure why Odin did that, so it’s hard to say whether it was worth it or not. It looks like part of a quest for knowledge and power. Maybe the nordics liked it as an indication that he was giving his best shot at gaining control over the random forces of nature. Anyway it seems they did blow it, if they wanted to set the hook in people the way the Jesus myth does.

    Unlike the Norse and Hebrews, however, from what I’m reading Egypt seems to have given up on sacrifice in general pretty early, and while Osiris did enjoy at least a partial resurrection, he died at the hands of another god, Seth or Set. Isis was sister/wife, but might be Mary in the Christian pantheon.

  22. Mockingbird says:

    Putin has just been on the phone to Barclays Bank, London. He wants a bridging loan.

  23. Son of Glenner says:

    Mockingbird: Very topical!

  24. M27Holts says:

    Didn’t the pharoh have to wank into the Nile? God knows who thought that one up? Or is that made up too?

  25. Rrr says:

    Pollution, as old as the pyramids.

  26. postdoggerel says:

    it wasn’t the pharo’s style
    to be wanking into the nile.
    when he had hanky-panky
    he’d grab for his hankie
    with a grimacing, sardonic smile.

  27. M27Holts says:

    There was a young lady from Cairo.
    Who thought she would marry a Pharoh.
    She was milleniums late…
    Such a terrible fate.
    To be wed to a ?

  28. Rrr says:

    … a pair o’ — what?

  29. postdoggerel says:

    There was a young lady from Cairo.
    Who thought she would marry a Pharoah.
    She was milleniums late…
    Such a terrible fate.
    To be wed to a manky cockwomble.

  30. Spoing says:

    here was a young lady from Cairo.
    Who thought she would marry a Pharoah.
    She was milleniums late…
    Such a terrible fate.
    To shack up with her mummified hero
