fiction is dead

goodreasonnews:

This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life. Demanding the government put aside the first amendment for a month a year and promote the belief that a jewish zombie was born 2,000 years ago and was sacrificed to satisfy the bloodlust of an ancient god who, as it turns out, was him in disguise all along, that’s OK, but to say that’s not true with a small plaque: OUTRAGE!

As a Bible-believing Christian, I actually like pointing out the fact that the above is quite an accurate summary of what Christians believe- that is on a surface level anyway. I often remind my brothers and sisters that we believe some unbelievably weird stuff in our doctrines- trinity, divine incarnation, resurrection…But this is only a shallow assessment of the Christian faith, bordering on offensive. 

Not that i’m saying it’s the only reason to believe in it, but for me the ‘weirdness’ of it acts to enhance the beauty and mystery of it all. What in this universe that is worth investigating doesn’t hold some sort of mystery to it? 

I’m just sick of people claiming that religion = abandoning all reason. "There is only our natural world” ? Logical positivism was all but abandoned decades ago.

Hit me with your asks if you want to discuss further.
