Pope scores 10m twitter followers #religion #lolAt the risk of upsetting our spiritual readers, there is truly nothing more ridiculous than the concept of religion. Contrary to all evidence and scientific reasoning, I’m supposed to believe that I was put on planet Earth by an omnipotent bearded man, and if I apply logical thinking and refuse to embrace blind faith I burn in Hell for all eternity. Thanks God; that seems fair.

But hey, it’s still cool to believe, as evidenced by God’s best mate, the Pope, notching up a whopping 10 million followers on twitter. Christ.

Tweeting yesterday, presumably taking a quick break from World of Warcraft, the Pope declared: “Dear Followers I understand there are now over 10 million of you! I thank you with all my heart and ask you to continue praying for me”.

The Pope in fact has nine twitter accounts encompassing various languages including Latin, Polish and Arabic.

The Vatican proudly says that Pope Francis, the first non-European Pope in over a thousand years, has tripled the number of followers since taking over from outgoing Pope Benedict XVI (above) in March, the latter presumably changing his mind having read Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion.

The 10 million landmark puts El Pope-a-tron roughly on par with hip-hop messiah Kanye West, but Franco has a long way to go before he tops the twitter popularity charts. He currently trails hot girl Katy Perry and teenage loonball Justin Bieber by some 36 million followers. Maybe if we form a prayer circle…

hey Lewis Curdie .

just because you think Christianity (evidence proves - age of the earth and not infact 4000 years old as in the bible etc..) is wrong doesn't mean that there is no god, what about other great religions there must be one that is right -have you studied other religions and have come to conclusion that there is god.

there is only is one religion that is saying that there is no deity (humans, idol stones,trees,cows etc..) worthy of worship except the true god.

did you create yourself or was you created.
no man has ever created anything not even an atom , all they know how to do is change its state.

if i go into a forest and blow up all the tree, then would there be any perfectly formed sets of chairs and tables, it simply would never happen even if you did it for ever and ever.

so how can this whole creation be formed as it is in a random chance.

there is more ......

Consider me "saved", brother.

Personally, I worship the great Dragon Lord Smargon. He did a poop on Earth many thousands of years ago, and we are in fact evolved from his faeces.

If you're nice to people on Earth and have a good time, Smargon comes down when you die and you ride to the Great Dragon Kingdom where everything is just lovely for the rest of time.

If you're nasty and/or don't believe in Smargon, one of his minions will take great pleasure in breathing fire on you for all eternity. It's really sore.

Where's the evidence against Smargon? WHERE IS IT? Hence, He exists.

Case: closed.

More likely there are so many religions and gods because no ONE does it for everyone..
You say 'man' creates nothing? 'Men' create religions and gods and commandments etc etc...

But whatever... if you can save Lewis' soul, it'd be win-win.
