my favorite thing about european history is that henry viii started his own religion just so he could divorce his wife
My favorite part about religion is people actually follow a religion that exists because a dead guy wanted to divorce his wife. No magic, no vagueness of ancient records, none of that. Just one dude and a bunch of babes a few centuries ago.
Someone got upset about dehumanization of Muslims on some magazine or whatever—I dunno, tumblr users have color-coded guilt and victim complexes too, but I just wanna say that
Religion is self-inflicted dehumanization. What makes our species the dominant predator on Earth is our being huge fucking nerds. If you wanna throw that away via pseudosympathetic dietary choice or QUITE LITERALLY BELIEVING IN MAGIC BECAUSE SOME OLD DEAD DUDES WROTE COOL STORIES, you are at least slightly less human than the rest of us.
