A week ago, I posted a cartoon from 1903 that would be in line with the “New Atheism” of today.
This one is even better. Keep in mind this was drawn in 1890!
It’s from The Freethinkers’ Pictorial Text-Book by Watson Heston. (Click to enlarge)
In case you can’t see it, along the “Freethought Road,” via a secular school, you pass Investigation, Reason, Education, Humanity, Justice, Science, Virtue, Love, Liberty, and Truth.
Along the “Orthodox Route,” via Sunday School, you hit Faith, Hypocrisy, Ignorance, Cruelty, Superstition, Fraud, Decay, and Death.
It’s amazing how many people willfully choose the wrong path.
