H.P. Lovecraft: If Religion Were True…

  • Sarah

    That’s what my parents did! Then they got huffy when I left the church. :/

      Mine did, too. All of my siblings also left the church, but we have all repeatedly thanked our parents for allowing us to question and explore. Unfortunately for the old progenitors, their parenting style didn’t keep us Catholic.

      I wonder now if thanking them for encouraging my freethinking just rubs salt in the wound.

      You have to be careful with Lovecraft. His fiction is awesome and creepy, but the dude was unbelievably racist and terrified of fish.

        Oh, I don’t care for Lovecraft. I tried to read it, but I got bored. “Nameless” or “Indescribable” or whatever just says to me, “I lack the imagination to write down a good description.”

        Haaaa, scared of fish. That’s great.

        And we all know it’s that second failing of his, his terror of fish, that destroys all our faith in him. All hail our new fishy overlords.

    I posted some thoughts about the quote on my own blog here: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/exploringourmatrix/2012/09/an-unbending-quest-for-truth.html

    If religion were true, I’d have a mansion because I’ve asked for one, and yet I haven’t received it.

    Hey PamAlonia McCrary, didn’t the baby jesus promise in the bible that believers would get what they want by asking the deity for the favour? I think he did. Yet another glowing failure from the godbots and their fictional fantasy.
