A graph depicting the links between ALL (major) religions through history.

Where is your Flying Spaghetti Monster now?

No seriously.

Simon E Davis writes:

“Even while the dates are approximate—many of these religions started before written records—this is how most religion historians agree that it all happened. It’s quite fun to listen to the Jesuits themselves explain how modern Christianity is nothing but a rebooted version of Judaism mashed up with some new tales and the old Roman and Greek polytheistic traditions.”

FIGHT!

    I’m not sure how much fun it really is to hear Jesuits repeat the obvious and widely known roots of Christianity, but anything that chips away at the perceived special status of religion among believers is welcome :)

    More concerned about where organised religions are going rather than where they came from but interesting all the same. *adjusts hyper-magnifing monocle*

    The best thing about this poster, is that you can show it to a religious person, asking them to explain why all the other religions are wrong but he/she happens to have chosen the right one.

        Science is fact, it does not need anyone to believe it. As soon as nobody believes a religion, it ceases to exist.

          It sounds to me like we have a fundamentalist extreme believer over here.

          Science is proof of something within a very limited test set. What it understands is beyond miniscule.

          You put your blind faith in experiments that people did to push forth science, which in actual fact were probably done by some aul lad faking his results to progress his career.

          Your some sap.

            And you’re trolling right? Got to be. However I’m sure someone will respond to you as if you were serious, and I for one look forward to reading that.

            You are a fanatic, or a believer in something, if anything it comes out with you generally believe without having experienced it yourself. That’s how most people approach science.

            For example, you were told in school that an apple falls down due to the gravitation pull of the earths magnetic field. Somebody who understands the fundamentals of this theory, will know that it is not true under all circumstances. But you blindly belief it because in your ignorance you don’t care, and find comfort in blindly believing, and I respect your right to do so. Ye fruit and nut cake.

            You are a fanatic, a religious screwball when it comes to your crazy beliefs, but thats ok, there is space for all sorts in our society.

            In years to come you will be mocked for your foolishness.
