No Religion


Avignon, France.
September 2011.


We didn't know no better
And they said it could be worse
Some people thought it was a blessing
Other people think that it's a curse
It's a choice between fact and fiction
And the whole world has gone astray
That's why there's no religion, no religion,
No religion here today

And there's no mystery, and there's nothing hidden
And there's no religion here today

(Van Morrison - No Religion)

A strange song, I didn't know it. I wonder what it means....

Thanks for your comments.

Jenny - I like the first few lines... religion plays an important part in some peoples' lives, and it doesn't matter to other people at all... it's also a choice between fact (= science, which provides a logical explanation for pretty much anything) and fiction (= whether or not you believe in the stories told in the Bible and other sacred writings, e.g. the Quran)... and last but not least, "the whole world has gone astray" - we all know that, sadly, religion plays an important role in many conflicts.

Hahaha... Machete is such a funny movie, it's totally over the top... What is it about the picture that made you think of the movie?
