I know, religion is big on sacrifices, especially Christianity, and that's the problem. It seems to me that a good rule of thumb is be suspicious of any religion who's most sacred symbol is a torture device. I suppose if Jesus had been executed in more recent times people would be wearing little gold electric chairs on chains around their neck. > the sacrifice of Christ free us from our own sacrifices. > So God was so mad at the entire human race (because one of its members ate an apple when told not to) that he was prepared to torture every single one of them for an infinite number of years (but he loves you). And the only way to prevent this is for God to forgive humanity, but even though God can do anything the only way He could make Himself forgive humanity is for humanity to torture His son (who is really Himself) to death. The one and only reason that millions of adult and otherwise sane human beings believe the above load of crap is because mommy and daddy told them that from before they were properly potty trained. And that is why the devote are so keen on early religious training for children, it is the only way to get over the giggle factor.
