Let’s face it: most Gods kill people. It’s an easy way to shut up those nasty doubters. Also, it is an effective method to teach and educate:
God: Don’t believe in me? You shalt die!
Man: But God, I don’t wanna die. #gonetoosoon #yolo
God: Then just do as I say! #myway
God: *invents random nonsense about masturbation and shrimp*
What drives us into the arms of a God on a killing spree?
So fear of death drives you in the arms of a God automatically. You might have done something wrong and start begging for forgiveness. Maybe you even might want to make it up by serving your deity. Just do what he does. He likes to kill people who do not believe in him. It’s your time to shine. DO IT! Or don’t. Please don’t. Your God is probably wrong on the issue of killing non-believers and most likely on loads of other stuff also.
Ever thought about this way: He says he’s God, but he really isn’t! You might have designated your life to an imposter. Ah … what the hell … you’ll be more lucky next life, right?
There is always the possibility of being wrong
Science teaches us that theories can be wrong no matter how reasonable they may seem. And even experiments have to be scrutinized and repeated over and over again – just to be sure. The first step to overcome religion should be questioning it. Everyone gets fooled once in a while, maybe you got fooled too. And no, it’s not some invented antagonist like Satan, who – the poor thing – always seems to be the bad guy whenever people aren’t so sure anymore.
What do you think is the result when two guys worshipping two different Gods are told to kill non-believers? They are going to terminate each other. They are both wrong! What about two atheists who both do not believe in all Gods invented by men? Do they kill each other in the name of atheism? They might be wrong. Maybe killing each other is a good thing after all. Or is it?
Religion serves as an answer to two major questions: Who is responsible for all this and what the heck are we supposed to do down here? Science cannot and will most probably never be able to solve the first mystery. However the question alone shows how human minds work. We define ourselves as persons so the creator must be one to, hence the “Who” right there at the beginning. Non-religious but spiritual people might rather ask “What is responsible?”. Still the query implies some form of conscious energy at the least.
What to do with our lives?
The second mystery is the meaning of life. For some there is none but to survive which includes eventual reproduction. And since they can’t escape – apart from suicide – they just try to make their lives worthwhile: being nice to others helps, as does building a solid foundation for their offspring.
For others of course that’s not enough. They need more detailed instructions like the 10 commandments for example on how to behave. And the purpose? Waiting for Christ to arrive and simply hanging on in there loving thy neighbor? Continue reading “Religion to be replaced before the second coming of Jesus Christ”
Christmas is the ultimate religious celebration for Christians. Jesus, God’s son, was supposed to have been born on December 25th some 2000 years ago. What most believers fail to understand is that before Christianity became the state religion of the Roman Empire, the Persian God Mithra was commonly worshipped. His birthday: December 25th, about 500 years before Jesus Christ. The same goes for the Greek Dionysus and the Egyptian Osiris. What is it about this special date?

What happens to the world if religion was extinct? What would people do or stop doing? Would incest be increasing?

Interesting point. However, I’m pretty sure that 99% of Atheists would never have sex with direct relatives – no matter what any Deity says. Or would religious people screw their mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers if some holy book said it would be OK? Probably not either. They would disregard it, just like Christians eat shrimp. That is morality without the need of religion.
Why is incest still not recommended then?

Or is it?
Most terrorist attacks happen in the name of some religion. One might argue that for terrorists religion is just an excuse. I’m not sure, however, if having an excuse for killing people makes it that much easier to do. So the most common consensus is that it is not religion itself … the real problem are the misled extremists who commit such terrible crimes. Religion, almost by definition, can’t be anything other than good.
I say, religion is to blame too. Why? Just because most religious people ignore the majority of all the outrageous stuff in their Scripture or simply soften them as “that was how ancient times were”, does not mean that these parts are not still in the book – the holy book! Which was written, through man, by God himself. It seems that extremists decide not to ignore what their God had to Continue reading “Terrorist attacks: Religion is not to blame”
