Defining Christianity

Okay, Joel made me giggle this morning.

Christianity - n; ...the belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree...

And my students used to tell me that the story of Bumba vomiting up the universe was a ridiculous origin myth.


  • The joy of humor, of course, is that it is not remotely constrained by accuracy when it comes to the sublime. A dozen fundamental errors (one for every five words) is, indeed, ridiculous. :-)
