“Genesis Revisited”

It is a good thing I was not drinking anything when I read “Genesis Revisited,” or I would have had coffee or tea all over my ereader. (I’m reading The Portable Atheist, which contains a lot of great – and some quite challenging – excerpts of various mostly atheist authors. That’s where I found those Shelley quotes, and I decided I have got to read Middlemarch due to Eliot’s chapter.)

If Ideas Had Shapes

By now the valley of the shadow of doubt was overrunneth with skepticism, so God became angry, so angry that God lost His temper and cursed the first humans, telling them to go forth and multiply themselves (but not in those words). But the humans took God literally and now there are six billion of them.

(quoted in The Portable Atheist)
