jesus was a horsethief

It sounds like blasphemy, but it's true.

Thanks to the Firefox "stumble" feature I discovered this beauty on the web:

Now the large number of people who actually believe the jesus fable will tell you that he was tortured and crucified like a common criminal for his beliefs. The adamantly religious are rarely objective, and are sometimes plain ol' dishonest in their public assessment of their figureheads. Looks to me like his followers and the biblical revisionists who came later may have glossed over any illegalities committed by this pack of unemployed religioneers, and painted his incarceration as if he were an innocent, unjustly imprisoned, and badly treated religious/political prisoner, Luke 19 notwithstanding.

All religious figures have broken the law during their careers.

There was Joseph Smith the fraudster who founded Mormonism and stole his investors' money. Mohammed stole goats and camels from the bedouin. Siddhartha chopped down the Bodhi tree after he obtained enlightenment (the tree was on private property). Confucius stole some guy's noodle soup...

The only decent guy was Lao Tsu who transcended civil law without ever breaking it. Speaking of which, the great Crispin Sartwell has penned his own translation of the Tao Te Ching. Check it out.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
