In another thread, I was noting that the evangelical bakers of the world don't really have religious beliefs any more nutty than other religions. I mean, sure, they want cake frosting to be protected religious freedom if it's too fabulous.

But just think of all the other religious beliefs that are just as nutty to those of us that don't believe.

Let's see:

Virgin birth. That's always been a personal favorite of mine, because it necessarily leads to jokes about places like West Virginia and why you can't have a nativity scene there.

Wafers and wine are the body and blood of Christ. Like ewww, right? Cannibals? Or is cannibalism really involved if you're eating God?

An unimplanted embryo is a person. I love that one. I assume a tiny soul is in it or something as it came from sacred sperm.

We're going die and go to Kolob. Or Xenu will come get us. Or maybe we'll go to purgatory. Or we will rapture away in rapture. Death is so complicated. (I realize I'm tempting Shreve here). I'll add dying and going heaven or firey hellfire as equally nutty so I can insult everyone evenly.

I'm sure I'm missing some. Add below.

That God can be both one and three separate entities...
That any of the OT stories are real: Noah, Jonah, Babel etc..
That the all powerful creator knows how many hairs we have on our head but doesn't bother to prove to us atheists that he's real...
Infinite punishments for finite crimes...
Is the "origin" of morality, yet orders or condones immoral behavior...


I could go on and on.

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus Second Coming occurred in 1914 but nobody noticed... because he's invisible!

Putting a dirty milk glass and a plate from a roast beef sandwich in the same dishwasher can contaminate your soul.

God forbids a cat or dog receiving a blood transfusion and forbids blood meal being used as garden fertilizer.

That Jesus would fulfill the "scapegoat prophesy" or that when a text is written hundred of years after another text that it could fulfill the vague predictions made in the first text 'because it's true'.

True, but most do not grant special legal privileges.

Maybe if religion had the same legal status as political thought or being a a member of a gaming club this would be less of an issue.

That an omniscient and omnipresent god seems to be clueless about the ramifications of his own intervention(s).

That apologist can use the phrase "maximally powerful" with a straight face.

They really don't. And in any case, nutty was meant to as a subjective not objective term. My point in the other thread was that it's pointless to try and write laws that only address reasonable beliefs, because most of the most venerable religions have belief systems that look simply nutty to an outsider. If the belief doesn't cause harm to others, it's pointless to debate whether it's reasonable or not.

So on a lark, I've listed them here and why I personally find them nutty. And also because I find them also amusing. Yet I still want them protected.

I'm a terrible person.

I agree everyone is entitled to believe what they want. But when they're religious fist hits my nose...

I've come to the conclusion that far more seem nutty than sane.
