Quite the satire...

Voltaire must have hated predestination and Calvinism. I found these first seven chapters to be a response to several different religions post-Protestant reformation. Voltaire definitely showed how absurd predestination and optimism were when the Anabaptist was swallowed by the sea, and he said that the sea was created for the Anabaptist to drown in...that is ridiculous.
