“Under theism, we are nothing more than rats in a maze, running out our prearranged lives through arbitrary predetermined scenarios to a foreordained conclusion, never actually making any progress or accomplishing anything except satisfying the unknowable whim of the experimenter. I say this view of reality is both false and depressing. We can do better. We can tear down the walls of the maze and set our own course, throw the puzzles aside and find out the real reasons for things. We are awake, alive and free right here, right now, and we have lives to live and the whole wide universe to explore. Who needs a god?” Ebon Musings
Think about this you theists out there. The Christian religion has it all figured out…there is no deviations allowed in the melodramatic script. God planned all of this from the beginning and we figured it out from the beginning…we are predestined to follow the plot set up by God–our future is predetermined by God… Do you see the contradiction here? So much for the free-will all the Christian apologists talk about.
I think all the Christians are just conned into their belief. The writers of the Bible and all the writers that have pushed the silly stories on us are just part of the con. They know it’s false and they have no proofs–at all—so they say you must have faith and the reason God doesn’t show himself is that would take away our free-will and ability to make a free choice—excuse me but that is bull-shit. If the story is true, we have no free-will.
This whole religion, just like all others, stinks to high heaven. Its stories of God and the world are no more believable than those of Zeus, Brahma, Allah (whoops, that’s the same as the Christian God) Enlil, Horus, Isis, Juno, or any of the other hundreds and hundreds out there. Even the Hebrews have a history of believing in other gods before they settled on JHWH about 590+- BC
Proof of this…the insane number of different ways to believe in this god. There are over a thousand different sects—all claiming that only they have the keys to heaven—only they know what God wants us to do. What hubris is this?
I’m going to be presumptuous here and show a little hubris also and say that if there really was a god…everybody would know it without a doubt…there would not be any argument about who has the “true” religion. There would not be over a thousand different denominations fighting for dominance. There never would have been those religious wars down through the ages wherein millions of innocent humans were killed in the name of “God.” There would be no war between Muslims and Christians.
The Christians profess to believe in the ways of Jesus, but his message has been totally corrupted by all who followed him. If Jesus (remember-He was also supposed to be God) was real, do you think his message would only be interpreted one way…or thousands?
