PBC0009: mockery of religion

This PBC connects triumph of human achievement and irreverence for gods and old belief systems and celebrates the world’s “oceans of unbelief” (W194). One example imagines the “Son of Man” speaking over the radio from Mars (W51). The Bolshevik revolution overthrows not just governments but old superstitions and beliefs centered around otherworldly things rather than earthly human life.
