My first thought was that the stairway should have been reversed: atheism on top signifying ascent into knowledge. But, as other people have noted, once atheism is realized, we're on sound footing, but I'm sure that wasn't the original intent. What's important here is the journey, not the direction.
Did you notice that the man at the bottom of the stairs appears to be Sigmund Freud?
Well, the sequence is quite correct.
But what I want to know is (pace. Richard Dawkins) WHY is there such an absurdity as a "Theology Professor" in a modern university? Whole departments of mumbo-jumbo, in supposed places of learning!
Religion as a phenomenon is fascinating, and I'm all for studying it - in the context of history, philosophy, psychology, literature, etc. But a "department of theology" makes about as much sense as a Ministry of Silly Walks. Waste of time and money.
Well all things being said it's at least comforting to see nobody's walking up the damn thing.
Ironic that the dark end is pointing away from the doctrines espoused during the dark ages.
I used this in a powerpoint for class a year or two back. Great image.
I think the old guy is carrying a glass retort- a piece of scientific glassware.
So, what was the point? To stimulate discussion or criticize atheism?
