Christianity: The idea that an invisible man in the sky impregnated a human virgin so that He could father Himself, then have Himself tortured and killed, because that was the only way that He could forgive humans for being the way that He made us to be.

The thing is that kind of personification is just what I would expect of any other mythic narrative. What seems strange to me isn’t the story; it’s the decision to see it as an an accurate description of the cosmos.
