In many places of the modern world we (mankind) have ditched silly, stupid and idiotic religous ideals and beliefs in favor of humanistic ideals and scientifically proven facts.
All the while we still kept believing in what ever looney shit we believed in before.

But that separation of fairytales about an invisible and omnipotent space daddy, and the real world that we all share with one another, allowed us to poke fun at the fairytales.
It allowed us to step back from what we believe(d) in and study it with a smirk on the face, perhaps even laugh at it. I mean, come on, a talking snake, a magic tree, a rib woman and a naked dude?
Really? XD

It is that separation of fairytales and real world that allowed us to proceed away from the-earth-is-flat-and-is-the-center-of-the-universe and embrace the truth about the universe, and our humbling, insignificant place in it. That separation allowed us to review the current state with criticism, and that criticism often came in the form of satire. Through that critical look on the current state we gained insghts, and changed what needed changing, so we came to where we are at now.

If there truly is an omnipotent being that shat out the universe in some wet dream, it doesn’t give a crap about us.
About you, about me.
If some maniac in the friggin desert has a drug or seizure induced dream about weird ghosts and gods, that omnipotent entity doesn’t give a rat’s hairy ass about it, nor was it involved, as it – as previously mentioned – doesn’t care about this insignificant ape creature that was too dumb to stay in the tree.
Therefore, the same omnipotent thing out there, cares even less (and much less endorses) some insignificant oxygen wasting sack of organs killing another sack of organs of equal importance, that just happens to believe something else, or nothing at all.

Right now, the situation in Europe is already tense. There is much hate, and even more potential for hatred. Recent events have fueled this, like pouring gasoline in a flame.
Extremists always spoil things.
This is why we can’t have nice things.

Stand up, against extremism.
But refrain from becoming an extremist yourself. If you participate in any form of backlash against an entire culture/religion/etc. you are the same despicable scum that got you enraged in the first place. This is why we can’t have nice things, too.

Later today, I’ll post the thing I had originally planned for today, some poking fun at spiritual non-sense, that I made up during research for my Christmas Calendar 2014.
