Someone must have once Donat...

How do you explain human Faith springing up all over the world since prehistoric times?

Evil seeds fell from the sky and grew into religions, which then began to brainwash people into having Faith? Is that your theory?

Edit: BTW, thanks for being a perfect illustration of "The Socialist System" being your God.

They made it up out of their heads of course. How else could a Mammoth bone or a rock or the moon become a god?

That's your theory, sans the evil part. The seeds came out of the clouds you try to tell us. You know, where the god lives!

The socially responsible capitalist system is as close as I get to having a god. Let's agree to call it that.

Did you know that geezuz, commie, and Marx are brothers?

Mammoth bone is a cousin and so is rocky.

Ha ha. Mammoth hunters didn't worship mammoth bones, they were just grateful to have survived killing the mammoth and having the women take care of it all while they bragged and got high.

If you want to be a Shaman, you'd better have something better than just a big bone. A big bone might work for a while, but when people realize you have nothing but a big bone, most of them will lose interest. Others might kill you for whatever reason.

It wasn't as easy being a Prophet as you might imagine. Most people claiming to be prophets in modern times get killed. A statistically high percentage actually.

The Big Bone allows it's worshippers to at least see Him and touch Him. You don't even know for sure if your sky fairy exists?

Here's a picture of it I've seen at least. This is the guy you talk to who lives under your bed I think?

Lucky them. Do you let everybody touch it? That will wear it out you know...

I assume you are the High Priest of the Big Bone?

Yes, the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party needed more money, and finally realized that unless they allowed some economic freedom (in the form of crony capitalism) they were going to go the way of the Soviet Union.

But they still take children and try to turn them into pure communists, and they still persecute anybody who does anything that even looks slightly like religion.


Interesting that their Communist system is so dependent on our Capitalist system.

I don't think so Ruby but if I have a god then it would be government. Good 'socially responsible government' is certainly something to bow down to and worship.

And I'm not saying that I would betray my Mammoth Bone God. He's real and I can see and touch him. Craig Sickler's god is nothing but his imagination in the ether. (clouds)

China's prosperity has everything to do with Capitalism and nothing to do with Communism.  They might as well give up the Communism all together and embrace freedom, it would mean even more prosperity.

Not much anymore Ruby, they've become crony capitalists. Imagine China as being in a similar situation to the U.S. at the height of the industrial revolution, only starting with better technology, which we largely gave to them.

Of course at the same that time China has advanced from a "socialist system" to crony capitalism, the U.S has fallen ever deeper back into crony capitalism.

China has plans of Empire, just like "progressives" in the U.S. did at the height of our industrialization.

All of it seems a bad idea.
