Caution Church Ahead


It's hard to imagine a road sign that encapsulates my personal point of view more eloquently. Instead of falling rocks or an icy bridge this sign is warning you about something potentially more dangerous: Christianity. And not just Christianity, but by extension the sign warns us about all religious belief, whether it be housed in a church, temple, mosque or synagogue. And not just religion. By extension the sign is warning us all about the dangers of fuzzy, illogical beliefs: whether it be the idea that vaccines cause autism, intelligent design is science, or Bigfoot is hiding in the mountains.

So beware, there's a church ahead. Proceed with caution, and hold onto your skepticism.
