It's Good Friday

This is the day when Christians commemorate Jesus' crucifixion. Supposedly he died for our sins, especially the "original sin" of Adam and Eve. Darn that apple!

But in our modern age, science assures us that Adam and Eve didn't exist. Never in the history of mankind was there a set of only two progenitors from whom the species homo sapiens sprang. Such a genetic bottleneck literally could not have occurred. So, nuh-uh. No Adam and Eve.

Necessarily, this means there was no apple and therefore no fall from grace. Didn't happen. And that means there was no reason for Jesus to die "for our sins". So cross out the crucifixion, too.

It truly is a good Friday, isn't it? I think I'll make a nice breakfast to celebrate. How will you celebrate the day?
