The emperor has no clothes. Religions and their associated gods are the biggest fraud that ever existed! I genuinely feel sorry for religious people. It is like they walk this Earth with blinders – willingly and gladly, no less. The more I study religions, the more I am convinced that man never worshiped anything but himself. In the case of Christianity how absurd that a god would become human just to sacrifice himself to himself in order to create a loophole for a rule that he created.
The fundamental problem with the entire idea of religious faith is that there’s no reality check. The ultimate arbiter is an invisible, inaudible, intangible being, whose nature and attributes nobody can agree on, and whose ultimate decisions we have no way of knowing until after we die. And the only way to “know” what this being thinks is to either trust in the word of people who swear that they’ve spoken to him directly… or to close our eyes, and think really hard, and tell ourselves that the voices in our heads and the feelings in our hearts are being planted there by our invisible friend.
“At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Moses and was about to kill him. But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it. “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me,” she said. So the Lord let him alone. (At that time she said “bridegroom of blood,” referring to circumcision.)” – Exodus 4:24-26
What kind of a stupid, lame childish god is offended by foreskin?
And what kind of an abusive, selfish, narcissistic sociopathic asshole threatens to murder you if you do not cut off the foreskin that he, as the god, allegedly created himself??
Do you get that people: God creates foreskins. He then says they must come off (even though he could have just omitted them in the first place, see) and then when someone doesn’t take them off, he threatens to murder them?
Seriously – I can’t begin to describe the failed logic in this one and the sheer cruelty of such a logic, if the words logic and religion even go together. Think about this: who creates you one way, sets the rules deliberately at the exact opposite, waits for you to mess up and else sets you up for “failure” and then proceed to horribly punish you if you do, in fact, mess up?
This is the kind of stuff that gets me about religion and the legions of religious people who just (blindly) follow their religion, either conveniently omitting the parts they don’t like or genuinely not being aware of them or worse, be aware of them and just make excuses for them.
And what gets me even more is that people are apparently really that needy and stupid, really, to either believe such an asshole god is either real or worse, divine.
Yes, I mean, if I wanted to reach a maximum number of people to bring across my divine message, I would also, as the wise and all knowing god, choose a bunch of sheep and goat herders in the middle of nowhere and west shit river to do so.
