The inscrutability of Christianity

Post by rgprice » Tue Jan 12, 2021 6:06 pm

Every now and then you just have to laugh at the joke called Christianity. I mean, the whole thing is just utterly absurd. We've had learned intellectuals studying these writings for 2,000 years and still no one can make sense of it. It's hilarious.

It' just so absurdly absurd. First, of course, we have to recognize that Judaism/Christianity/Islam are not "normal" religions. They may dominate now, but they were extremely strange from the start. Now Judaism may have seemed bad with its unusual reliance on written scriptures, but at least for Judaism the interpretation of the scriptures was rooted in something that could fundamentally be debated, the law. In addition, at least the Jewish scriptures were mostly logically conceived and have some kind of coherent framework at their core.

Once you get to Christianity, arguably the meaning of writings is even more important than it is for Judaism, yet the writings that Christianity are built upon are a disaster. It's just a plain fact that there is no coherent core to Christianity. Its a religion built upon confusion and misconceptions across a collection of forgeries that were largely written in direct contradiction to one another. So whereas Judaism has a consistent ideological and philosophical spine to it, and operates within a functioning framework, Christianity is just random nonsense. Its just literally random nonsense.

And you think about all these theologians who have dedicated their lives to trying to make sense of this mess. You may as well study ink blots to try and comprehend the meaning of the universe. Christian scripture is like a collection of random pages from diaries found in an insane asylum. And the funny thing is, average people are supposed to put their faith in this stuff and trust their immortal souls to what their priest/pastor tells them, while dedicated scholars working on 2,000 years of study can't figure out what any of it means. LOL!

It's pretty amusing...
