The difference in mind between man and the higher animals, great as it is, certainly is one of degree and not of kind.
Scary Christian Ghost Stories
Have you heard the scary tale of the Jewish carpenter zombie?
Probably so; restating the supernatural bits of religion, even the "glorious" bits, in terms of crude pulp fiction is a common way to have fun when mocking belief.
I saw one such rewording today, when following some non-memorable chain of links brought me to The 7 Most Ridiculous Ghost Stories from Around the World on Cracked.com (a site I normally avoid due to its magical powers to destroy productive time...). I liked one comment by reader CraigFinlay:
I heard a ghost story once about a carpenter who was executed and rose from the dead 3 days later and if you don't telepathically accept him as your master he'll send you to burn in the underworld for all eternity because a rib woman was tricked by a talking snake into eating magic fruit a very long time ago. Why isn't that on this list?
Heh. Worth committing to memory.
