Original Sin

Our usual interpretation of Original Sin is faulty.

It has a logical dynamic which is equivalent to making a 20 mile run as a warm up for a 6 mile run: it "tires" us out before we even start the race.

Maybe that's the point of childhood baptism. But even so, the burden of a propensity to sin is heaped upon our shoulders.

It is quite mad, I think.
