What we have here, ladies and germs, is interweb door-knocking/proselytizing.

Same boring Borgs on the other side of the door, though.

Short brochures would only do for false religions seeking vulnerable people instead of those with critical thought and time for deep analysis.

Thank you, but I have seen them before. I explained to the people waving them at me that they were filled with lies. Not even original lies, but borrowed from Creationist websites (the Muslims do the same). They didn't listen. They never do.

How about worshiping Black Holes?

How many Black Holes are there?

Well let's think about that. In our Galaxy the current understanding is that there are about a billion hundred stars. About 1% of these stars will be big enough at the end of their lives to collapse all the way through to become a Black Hole.

If 1% of stars that will collapse all the way through to become a black hole = a Billion Black Holes in our Galaxy. In addition to that our Galaxy hosts a Super Massive Black Hole (that's 100 million times more massive than our Sun), this Super Massive Black Hole has 10's of 1000's Black Holes segregated around it.

Now in the observable Universe we know there are as many Galaxies as the number of stars in our Galaxy...that's a lot of Black Holes out there!

Since we know Black Holes truly exist and possess a crazy intense gravity field where no matter or radiation can escape...why not worship them?

Are there stories of them offering immortality, etc. if one worships them. I think most religious people's pagan genes are about feelings and offerings.

There are stories of them answering prayers in about the same percentage as prayers addressed to any other deity.

Sorry, we are going to have to excommunicate each other here as I revere, worship and honor the Sun as the source of life. I cannot therefore for doctrinal reasons worship an entity that threatens to smear my ass all over its' face if I go anywhere near it.
