God and Satan: the origins
I'm not sure where to post it. But Tony Jeffers asked and it's such a good resource for everyone. These two videos explain the origins of Yahweh and Satan. Watch them and see how people gradually made up both of them. For good measure I add the previous proverbial incarnations of Jesus Christ. You know, Dionysus, Mithra, Horus, Attis, Krishna and who knows who else. The purpose is to cut the crap, get to the point quickly and bring theists on a whole new level of discussion.
I am still missing one essential video. The theme was Eve in Hell, or why don't atheists fear hell or actually the neurologic basis of pain. A painted Eve was slightly burned on her foot by a flame and the video displayed how the pain travels by nerves into the brain. If the nerve gets severed or rots after death, there is no pain. But if the nerve wouldn't have its proper coating at the brain's end, the signal would leak into surrounding regions in the brain and the sensation would be like whole body burning. The point is, pain is an entirely neurologic phenomenon, an evolutionary invention to warn us and protect us. Threatening people with burning after they're dead and rotten is just ridiculous.
This is what the video was about and I can't find it anywhere on the usual channels or fulltext. It was pretty much in educative slightly animated style of QualiaSoup, TheraminTrees, or Evid3nc3, easy to recognize as I described it.
Beings who deserve worship don't demand it. Beings who demand worship don't deserve it.
