I’m pretty sure Christianity started out with this kind of personality worship.
Totally. Within a few decades, atheists everywhere will be captivated by tales of the miracles performed by these people we “worship,” like that time Dawkins healed a blind man with some street magic, or that time Christopher Hitchens turned water into whiskey. And they’ll begin prophesying the second coming of Charles Darwin. Thanks for showing me the folly of my ways.
