Moth : Flame :: Human : Religion

Mahalanobis channels Richard Dawkins’ explanation of religion:

Natural selection builds child brains with a tendency to believe whatever their parents and tribal elders tell them. And this very quality automatically makes them vulnerable to infection by mind viruses.

While both links are worth reading (and explain the subject of this post), the cartoon included in the first grabbed my attention:

christianity is stupid
Unknown source. Found at several German language websites with filename heiden.jpg. I believe heiden translates as “heathen.”

I’d like to see this concept in video, perhaps a “mash” of archival footage featuring various xian and non-xian rituals. Until then The Mashin’ of the Christ will have to satisfy.
