I realize I promised new content yesterday, but you see the Muses were not upon me. I feel that most of my blogs should come from a source of inspiration, rather than a point of school essay- style forcing out of my tired head.
Today I have found inspiration.
The picture you see above may look harmless at first glance. It is simply three books being burnt side-by-side on a porch banister. Next to a dog bowl.
But how would you react to find out that two of these books are the two best selling books in history? That's right, one is the Bible and one is the Koran.
Now don't immediately be shocked or offended. It is for a noble cause. Besides, the third book is "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins.
But the Ultimate purpose of this demonstration was to expose the extreme intolerance of the religious. Fundamentalists from both religions will instantly find themselves willing to resort to violence to defend their personal collection of words. Atheists, meanwhile, are much more likely to consider the implications that such an action would mean.
The ultimate point is that this action must be viewed rationally. Every one of these books is nothing more than a specific arrangement of ink and paper, nothing more. To be offended at the destruction of an arrangement of paper is irrational. Nothing can be made sacred if we are to move forward in life.
