In the beginning god created the heaven and the earth. This offended a lot of people and is generally considered a bad idea.
I give up. What about them?
And how come nobody complains about the Unitarians? They're the ones who go around burning question marks on people's lawns!
I went to a few Unitarian services...never laughed so hard in my life...
I'd just assume the Riddler had escaped from Arkham and it was time do dust off the old Bat Man costume. :)
Wow I never heard of anyone burning a question mark. crosses yes but other things no
Whatever floats your boat I guess, my belief is that in decades being religious will be very rare. Mythology is where gods go to die, no one is looking for the Norse, Greek, Roman or Egyptian gods anymore, when there were times people worshiped them and offered sacrifices.
You don't have to read many pages in history to realize that the sky above the Earth looked very different just a few thousand years ago. You might wonder why the ancients named their god after a planet that most people now can't even point to. Well, they were quite explicit about that: they didn't worship gods named for planets, they worshiped the planets. In ancient days, Jupiter and Saturn dominated the sky, and Venus and Mars put on quite a show for a long time.
Here is a careful investigation of ancient myths and legends, considering stories in hundreds of languages from all over the world and going back to 10,500 BC. It is very long, and it is still in progress.
