The Bokononist Religion in Cat's Cradle believes in the truthful lie that God made mud stand up and become man.

>What was the purpose of Ice-9?
To get rid of all the mud.

Have I blown your mind?

You'll get over how "mind blowing" Vonnegut's books are when you start reading actual good literature
Slaughterhouse Five is still pretty decent though

Well, I have read good literature, Catch-22 is my favorite book and I've read and liked most of the recommended list.

But I still love Vonnegut and Terry Pratchett.

I am ready for your hate.

That cover is fucking ridiculous

Vonnegut writes some good shit though, but if you're finding it "mind blowing" you're really reading it wrong

I wasn't saying it was mindblowning. It's like Catch-22. It was a joke that made sense the second time around reading

You're opinion mate, but is that >>7654558
a reference to I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream?

Ice-9 represents the atom bomb ya dingus.

It's a potentialy world destroying technology produced by a naive scientist who wasn't aware about the implications his new creation that was ordered by the government held for the future of humanity.

Bokonism is a way of saying that religion is not as anti-intellectual as it might seem initially if you realize that most people are actually somewhat aware of how ridiculous it is and mostly follow the trend for cultural and comfort reasons.

Tiger got to hunt,
Bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder, "Why why why?"
Tiger got to sleep,
Bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.
