In the beginning was the Fiction
And the Fiction was the Word
And the Word Extinguished God
And the Word became God
Then its gets complicated
For “God” so loved the world that he created religions
So that who so-ever believeth in them would not die
(‘Cept perhaps in a race or cultural war concerning borders and holy territorial rights)
But have eternal life
Subject to a few conditions
Thou shalt not kill
(‘Cept when religious genocide is obviously a necessity to subvert a conflicting belief system and gain their land)
Thou shalt not covert thy neighbours ox
(‘Cept when the ox is a metaphor for land, in which case, see previous)
You get the idea
And so it came to pass that the masses were controlled
By the Priests of the temples
The Rabbi’s and the Ayatollahs
Brainwashed by rules designed to install obedience
Believe, or Burn!
A new commandment they gave unto you
Do as we say and not as we do
And so it continues
Indoctrinating children to the way of “the Lord”
Ingraining into their consciousness versions of what’s good, what’s right
Which in turn makes all other aspects of this same “God” wrong
Hatred and intolerance are born
Gods only begotten son
Brought into existence on a diet of ignorance
Fruit from the tree of so called knowledge
Passed down from generation to generation
And the ruination of mankind beckons.
In the beginning was a Fiction
And the Fiction assimilated God
And the Fiction will remain God
Unless we change it!
Humanity’s last stand
Wielding the apocalyptic sword of Common Sense
We Slay the many headed dragon named Religion
Remake God with No image.
Create a society based on acceptance.
And abolish those beliefs that trespass against our freedom
For ours is the kingdom.
So rewrite the story.
For ever, and ever
So let it be written
So let it be done
