A totally irreverent view of transsubstantiation

Since the basic principle of the eucharist is that the wafer and wine actually become the body and blood of Christ, it's theoretically possible to predict that given enough time, the entire mass of the earth would be comprised of Jesus. Using 2 grams per wafer and 10 grams per sip of wine, that length of time calculates to approximately 5 billion years. Food for thought, so to speak.

I'm not trying to offend anyone. Just offering this to show how the doctrines of one religion can be distorted by nonbelievers or those of another faith. Found at Kottke.

  1. Our Father, who art in heaven, and below us, and all around us, in us, and out of us, with us, and beside us...

    I'm Catholic and that's just hilarious.
