I have many friends and relatives who regularly go to church. I am amazed at how quickly church wears off of nearly all of them. In church they are on their best behavior then once away from church all their foulness seems to come flooding out. I know some who say things that would get you kicked out of a truck-stop and do things that have to be hidden from the law. Continue reading
So…because the universe exists and science has yet to prove how it came into existence down to the first millisecond that clearly indicates that a kind of magic was used by a supreme being in that first millisecond to get things started.
OK…so the creator what has ze done since to deserve worship? (this is where religious cowards will quit reading!) If indeed the hand of the creator was in that first millisecond perhaps recognition is deserved but is worship as a deity deserved?
Now then, where did this supposed creator come from? Logically nothing comes from nothing for if that were the case one might accept that the energy for that first millisecond came from nothing and have an end to it. No, nothing comes from nothing everything must have an origin therefore where did the creator come from? Did the creator have a creator and if so shouldn’t one be better off worshiping our creator’s creator? What of our creator’s creator’s creator…?
Now we find ourselves in a repeating quandary…whatever shall we do?
Now then if a creator exists perhaps someone can let me know what ze has done to deserve deity status? Science has shown that since that first aforementioned millisecond the creation of the universe is pretty well understood.
Ok, so let us assume there is a creator. Now then what is our actual relationship with ze? Are we as subjects to a good king who actively takes care of us? If you think so ask the poor, the starving, the terminally ill, the enslaved, the persecuted, those subject to all manner of prejudice, and the list goes on and on. Even perhaps those who asked for help at one point and wound up holding their dead child in their arms. Perhaps we are looked on more as pets, and not well looked after either.
I challenge anyone, human or otherwise, to disprove anything here written. I do have an open mind and will consider any information presented.
A Religious person said to me…What about the Inquisition when we were speaking about world violence in the world.
History is a study of humanities capabilities and potential and often shines a bit of light into the shadows of the future. In that dim light some thing you can see others are less clear and others a mystery even with the light we have.
But it is not about history. It is about now. It is about mutual respect which will NEVER happen with multiple religions.. Religion…all religion…is actually the main problem. The poor deluded fools doomed to an eternal conflict by non-existent Gods! The Bible, The Quaran, the Torah none are divine…would a God worth believing in not be moved to action at the plight of innocents. No reason would justify a Gods’ inaction in the face of the suffering I have personally been witness to. People have suffered from all religions.
Religion is not the only road to morality. Right and wrong is inside every normal person. Generally an a non-religious person will not feel superior to other people.The non-religious person generally feels everyone begins on the same level although there is admittedly some incredulity and pity at the deluded and what they will do in the name of their delusion.
If you have a God prove it. I am of an open mind, in the face of such proofs I would believe. Proofs must be scientifically verifiable and repeatable.
I expect the next topic to come up would, undoubtedly be faith. If you truly believe that there is a God then where is faith? I suppose you could have faith that this mythic God will protect us yet terrible things continue to happen in the world.
So the what are the proofs of God or Gods seen by me up to now? I have seen none. The closest I get is the search for The Grand Unification Theory.
What are the proofs against the existence of Gods? Let us start with pain and suffering. We can continue with allowing injustice and not saving dying children whether from violence or illness. Who can prove they have seen or heard a God.
I would like to see fewer people being killed and more people be free. I would like to see money spent on war go towards sustainable energy, disease cures, crime prevention, space exploration, worldwide standard of living, and other wonderful things.
You know an old saying was, ‘money is the root of all evil’ but I think ‘religion is the root of all evil’ after all the very rich essentially worship wealth.
