Just a thought …

Prayer and sacrifice would seem to be the essential notes underlying religion. Christianity advances the striking notion that God sacrificed himself as an expiation for his creatures' shortcomings, and this must surely be the point of departure for any discussion thereof, and it can only be discussed within the context of mankind's age-old practice of sacrificing (sometimes other humans) to God or the gods. To counter it with talk derived from modern, positivist science is to miss the point entirely,and to waste everybody's time.
