On the existence of deities and the nature of religion.

I once believed that there are no deities. Then I finally discovered the shocking truth, every deity that has ever been the subject of worship actually exists.

A religion is nothing more or less than a collection of religious texts, a group of priests and priestesses, and a network of places of worship.

These items can be described in non religious terms.

The deity is therefore nothing more or less than the core concept that lies at the heart of the religion.

A religion is not meant to be static. It is meant to be a living, breathing, ever changing organism. It is the duty of all true followers of a religion to try to improve the religion for the betterment of man.

This is what is wrong with Christianity. It is no longer a living, breathing, ever changing organism. It is a putrid corpse.
