← Why am I reading theology?

Theology - Religion's attempts to create academic 'credibility' to the convoluted mental gymnastic backflips and somersaults it has to do to try to make sense of the senseless - yet then still cannot 'pin' the landing.

Theologist - Someone with some impressive sounding letters after their name who attempts the impossible mental gymnastics to justify their beliefs so they don't appear wrong or as if they are suckers for story. Resorts to confusing babbling and weird use of language to achieve nothing but confusion in the minds of those listening. To the believer it sounds impressive and it justifies their beliefs, and to the unbeliever it sounds like what it is - tortured bullshit!
