"We (once) sent Noah to his people, and he tarried among them a thousand years less fifty: but the Deluge overwhelmed them while they (persisted in) sin. (Quran, 29:14)
-The Quran, Verse by a "deity", that over a billion people actually worship as all wonderful, detailing one of his many adventures in infanticide....
Realistically.... which one is more offensive?
The foundation of superstition is ignorance, the
superstructure is faith and the dome is a vain hope. Superstition
is the child of ignorance and the mother of misery.
