Thank you, SoT, for you beautiful statement that I have had to preserve in my sig.

Now, Iffy dear, what can we learn from this?

Maybe, don't you think, it might be a good idea to think something through before you post? Just occasionally?

It depends on what you mean by "popular"

a) A lot of people seem to do this.
b) My doing this makes a lot of people happy.

It is popular by criterion a), and certainly not by criterion b).

Cue TM to quote Nietzsche here...
Lo?a vijest za ateiste: čak ni koncept produljenog vikenda nije novovjeka izmi?ljotina (refleksija uz uskrsnu nedjelju)

Čuo sam rečenicu koja me potakla na neobičnu misao. ?Trećeg dana bog je uskrsnuo i proslavio se svojim najvećim čudom“.

Vjerojatno je da ste ovih dana i vi mogli čuti ne?to slično. U duhovnim promi?ljanjima između bakalara i kuhane ?unke, ?to je, bez uvrede, najveći domet najvećeg postotka nacije, velika je vjerojatnost da vam je ta fraza promakla u bujici popovskih prigodnih govorancija. Meni, kakav već jesam, nije. Zasvrbilo me. Čudo uskrslog boga? E, pa, ne znam ba?. Jeste li sigurni da bi to bilo ba? tako veliko čudo? Budimo ozbiljni, kakvo čudo mo?e biti u tome ako bog uskrsne od mrtvih. Pa on je bog! Stvoritelj svijeta. ?to, trebao bi ostati mrtav?

Mislim da se istinsko čudo dogodilo tri dana ranije. ?Bog je mrtav!“ uskliknuo je Nietzche slavodobitno, no da je toga dana stajao podno kri?a na brdu Golgoti to bi bila najobičnija konstatacija jednog fakta. E, to da je bog mrtav, to je zaista čudno. Kad bog odluči umrijeti onda to jest čudo, pa time i, kako se pokazalo, ugaoni kamen povijesti. Da kasnije uskrsne, ne znam, to je već prirodan slijed stvari. Molim vas lijepo! Ni direktor velike kompanije ne usudi se ostaviti poslove na nekoliko dana, zamislite tek kako je kad direktor svemira mora ostaviti čitav pogon na tri dana, takoreći za jedan produljeni vikend. I dan dulje bilo bi krajnje neodgovorno. Ako postoji luksuz koji si Bog ne mo?e priu?titi na dulje od tri dana, onda je to smrt.

U nadi da ću vam ovogodi?nju pobo?nu meditaciju učiniti zanimljivijom ostavljam vas blagdanskom ugođaju i ?elim vam svima Sretan Uskrs.

Bad news for atheists: even the concept of the long weekend is not a new invention (reflection on Easter Sunday)

I heard a sentence that propelled me to an odd thought. “in three days God arose and celebrated his greatest miracle”
It is likely that these days you also wanted to hear something similar. In spiritual seriousness between cod and boiled ham, which is, without offence, the greatest range of the greatest percentage of people, it is very likely that you missed the expression in the torrent of clerical speeches. Myself, being the type I am, did not. It catches my attention. The Easter miracle of god? Ah, well, I don’t know exactly. Are you sure exactly how big that miracle was? Let us be serious, what kind of miracle might it be in it if a god died at Easter. But he is a god! He created the world. What, he had to stay dead?
I think that the real miracle happened three days before. “God is dead”, exclaimed Nietzsche victoriously, but applied to that day to Christ on the hill of Golgotha that would be nothing more than a simple statement of fact. Ah, for a god to be dead, that is a real miracle. For a god to decide to die then is a miracle, and thus and as he showed, a corner stone of history. That Easter follows, I don’t know, that is already the natural cycle of the world. Please, gentlemen! No director of a big company dares to give up power for a few days, imagine just how the director of the world could give up total drive for three days, the aforesaid long weekend. Another day longer would be extremely irresponsible. If there is a luxury that God may not afford for longer than three days, that is death.
In hope that it will make this year’s religious meditation interesting I bequeath you an agreeable holiday and wish you all Happy Easter.

I'd just like to point out that Social Degradation and Religious Decay (Split from "Life on Europa") is not an accurate description of all life in this continent.
Now you may return to the debate.
