Me, on the art of the non-working prototype

The benefit of using a cocktail napkin is that nobody mistakes it for a Boeing 737.

As I was saying...

... about the "problem" with, e.g., Mormonism or Scientology:
Bibles is bibles is bibles—and any idiot can write a bible. And so long as people think they can win arguments by writing bibles, idiots are going to keep writing bibles. (Dan Savage, New Jesus vs. Old Jesus)
The "threat" of Mormonism or Scientology or any such "religion" has nothing to do with anything they might believe or practice, but with the fact and circumstance of their existence. Anything so blatantly invented by humans more-or-less within living memory just illustrates how simple it is for an entire, widely accepted faith system to have been blatantly invented by humans.
