Challenging Religious Faith
SUPPOSE someone told you there is a fly in your cup of tea what would yo do? You would probably pour or sieve the tea. If you find no fly in your cup of tea, you can decide to keep quiet about it. Take your sweet tea. Suppose someone wrote a book saying that that the fly in that cup of tea was put in that cup by a supernatural being, and that the fly died in the cup because of our sins, and that only when we believe in that fly, shall we go heaven, what would you do?
Suppose further that many people believe the story, and decided to worship and praise the fly, for dying in your cup of tea, suppose many of your friends believe that they will heal when they pray in the name of the fly, wouldn’t you shout and tell people “Hey, i sieved the tea, there was really no fly you fools!” This is why i am very public about religion. It has made people believe in a fly that is really not in my cup of tea.
