Religion is a figment of your imagination

I love reading stories like the following one. It is nice to know that humans have great imaginations…

On the same topic of imagination, look at the following picture and what do you see? I remember when I was a kid, a teacher had been to Africa, and told of a story of kids our age. He said that when kids got on a bus and it started moving down the road, the kids thought that the trees where moving, instead of the other way around. I didn’t believe him at the time, but over time I have realized that our brains do present us with the best way to observe things based on our life experiences. So, having said that, what do you see in the picture?

Richard Dawkins was in my part of the world recently and did an interview on Shaw TV. Check it out!

It looks like the Flying Spaghetti Monster has punished a church in Abbotsford,BC for not worshipping his Noodly Appendage…
