Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Man has so often come to grief
On the shoals of deep belief
Seeking mystic higher powers
Praying, singing hymns for hours,
Spending months away from layity
To discern some brand new deity.

All this sweat and pain historic
Is at bottom, myth folkloric
All the hubbub, and the din
Driven by deep fear of sin.
Not just buried sins within you,
But those that some might try agin you.

Now comes science, unembarassed
To the fields that Faith has harassed,
Dispels panic, myth and rumor,
Gods of grief and guilt and humor.
With a model we can try on --
Sin is born from antipions!

Now the path becomes quite simple!
Toss the habit, and the wimple!
Toss the bishop, overweening
And the priest, so lost for meaning!
Extract pions from all quarters,
And add them to the drinking water!!
