For Post #1 - The Question of "IF"

For some people, there isn't such an "if" question. They accept divinity unquestioningly.
But then, there are different concepts and images of gods in different religions or faiths.
And there are lots of those who doubt or don't believe there is a god.
The best agreement people have finally come upon, perhaps, is that the earth is not, and has never been, the center of the universe, nor the Milky Way. But even that could be doubtful for some.

I have helped others find him, sent them to him, and made them believe in him!


If there is a god which I don't believe, then this is exactly my impression of him.
Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He's a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, his own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It's the goof of all time. Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow. Ahaha. And while you're jumpin' from one foot to the next, what is he doing? He's laughin' His sick, . .. .. .. .in' a$$ off! He's a tight-a$$! He's a SADIST! He's an absentee landlord! Worship that? NEVER!

Seneca,

What part of believing that an all-powerful being demands that you eat a cracker to remember him isn't crazy? Think objectively, man! Just because you grew up around it doesn't make in sane, it makes it something you're used to. If you grew up around schizos, would you feed us some line about their sanity?

Religion is crazy; it's institutionalized, socialized, heavily respected crazy.

God is the Santa for adults. It is an imagination from a vicious fairy tale.

"Bill Maher: The irony of religion is that because of its power to divert man to destructive courses, the world could actually come to an end. The plain fact is, religion must die for mankind to live. The hour is getting very late to be able to indulge having in key decisions made by religious people. By irrationalists, by those who would steer the ship of state not by a compass, but by the equivalent of reading the entrails of a chicken. George Bush prayed a lot about Iraq, but he didn't learn a lot about it. Faith means making a virtue out of not thinking. It's nothing to brag about. And those who preach faith, and enable and elevate it are intellectual slaveholders, keeping mankind in a bondage to fantasy and nonsense that has spawned and justified so much lunacy and destruction. Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don't have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it's wonderful when someone says, "I'm willing, Lord! I'll do whatever you want me to do!" Except that since there are no gods actually talking to us, that void is filled in by people with their own corruptions and limitations and agendas. And anyone who tells you they know, they just know what happens when you die, I promise you, you don't. How can I be so sure? Because I don't know, and you do not possess mental powers that I do not. The only appropriate attitude for man to have about the big questions is not the arrogant certitude that is the hallmark of religion, but doubt. Doubt is humble, and that's what man needs to be, considering that human history is just a litany of getting . .. .. .. . dead wrong. This is why rational people, anti-religionists, must end their timidity and come out of the closet and assert themselves. And those who consider themselves only moderately religious really need to look in the mirror and realize that the solace and comfort that religion brings you comes at a horrible price. If you belonged to a political party or a social club that was tied to as much bigotry, misogyny, homophobia, violence, and sheer ignorance as religion is, you'd resign in protest. To do otherwise is to be an enabler, a mafia wife, for the true devils of extremism that draw their legitimacy from the billions of their fellow travelers. If the world does come to an end here, or wherever, or if it limps into the future, decimated by the effects of religion-inspired nuclear terrorism, let's remember what the real problem was. We learned how to precipitate mass death before we got past the neurological disorder of wishing for it. That's it. Grow up or die. " From <<Religurous>>
