On religion...

...I am deeply offended by the notion that myths invented in the Bronze Age by superstitious desert nomads should be given exactly the same credence as the work of people like Darwin and Einstein and Euclid and Hawking and Newton. Our world is being driven further and further into irrationality by people who cannot reconcile their faith with reality, and therefore decide that it is reality which is lacking... --Zenarchery.com

I need to have Ronan from VNV nation say that paragraph into a mic so I can sample it into a bunch of songs. :)

(Supporting John Lennon Quote - Excerpts from "Serve Yourself" Lyrics)

You say you found Jesus Christ
He's the only one
You say you've found Buddha
Sittin' in the sun
You say you found Mohammed
Facin' to the East
You say you found Krishna
Dancin' in the streets


It's still the same old story
A Holy bloody War, you know, with the Pope and all that stuff
A fight for love and glory
Ain't gonna study no more war
A fight for God and country, and the Queen and all that
We're gonna set you free
Bomb you back into the fuckin' Stone Age
If you won't be like me, you know, get down on your knees and pray


NOTE: "[This song] was right after Dylan's song [...] "You
Gotta Serve Someone", you know - the lord, I suppose, you know.
So then he was kind of upset about that and it was a dialogue,
you know. In that sense it's fun, I mean you can hear it was
fun. He wasn't seriously against it. He showed his anger in
a way but also [...] his sense of humour." (Yoko Ono, 1998)
