What is theology?

The pseudoscience of the divine whose aim is rendering people subservient to the fiction of god – M Onfray

Or as Thomas Paine put it

The study of theology as it stands in Christian churches is the study of nothing, founded on nothing, rests on no principles, proceeds by no authorities, has no data, can demonstrate nothing and admits of no conclusions.

    Theology is a genre of creative fiction.

    How about “The study of folklore and fairy tales, but refusing to acknowledge that they are fictional”

    Mak, I simply had to share this and this seemed like a good place due to your reference to pseudoscience.

    “Last month, Dr. Simone Gold stood before a crowd at a conservative church in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and delivered a talk riddled with misinformation. She told people to avoid vaccination against the coronavirus. As an alternative, she pushed drugs that have not been proven effective at treating COVID-19 โ€” drugs that she also offered to prescribe to the audience in exchange for $90 telehealth appointments.”

    It’s that last part that seemed to fit your topic.

    Oh, and she added that It could take a week for them to get these “effective drugs” because she was so swamped!

    Is this the woman who claims the vaccines “magnetize” our bodies such that if you hold a set of car keys to the forehead they will stick?

    You all sheeple just need to โ€œDo Your Own Researchโ€ to overcome the lies of Big Pharma. Listen to these kind, absolutely, totally not mercenary alt-medicine gurus. Because I love all the posters on this here blog thingie, I will sell you a homeopathic COVID cure for the low low price of $150 per vial! I promise I will shake the water vials for extra time just for this readership! At no extra cost!

    Nan’s current post about cow’s poo probably describes theology accurately enough.

    Ok, but what about proctology? That’s for reals — right?
