Today I’m picking a new topic for my blog. The existence of God. I am not saying that I’m an atheist, because I do believe in Solara, but my religion aside, I’m focusing on the God that has a large number of believers. That is the Christians, Jews and Muslims.
I am debating whether those particular religions God is real for the reasons I shall now explain.
“God created all things,” is a pretty much universal phrase used by anyone who believes in God. It is something overlooked by many, and those who question it ask the wrong questions. If God created all things and then came to whoever on Earth to tell them of his presence, why not tell those Prophets about the undiscovered American continents? Why not tell them of the universe and all the planets? God, in the Bible in particular, loves to boast his triumphs of creation, yet here he is missing an opportunity to even mention it.
“Gods love is infinite,” is another phrase I hear a lot. Now I have read bits of every religious text on Earth. Never quite finishing one, because, you know, I get bored. In religious texts he hates pretty much everyone. He always wants someone to be killed. There is no love. There is no forgiveness. Now people will disagree with this paragraph and I will share sources with anyone who asks.
What is natural? The need to put order on our existence comes from those who believe in God. For instance, before Christianity arrived in Europe the populous was Pagan, a nature based religion. They did as they pleased sexually, hosting and participating in orgies. Homosexuality was not an issue. You could be married and sleep with other people without being shamed. Then, in steps Christianity, and sexual repression takes hold. People were told no sex before marriage and once married never have sex with anyone else until you die. Completely counter to the Pagans and the animals all over the world. Nature is about passing your DNA on to as many children as you can, with the strongest and healthiest, thus ensuring your survival. It is programmed into our DNA. Now some may say that homosexuality is still not natural, but that is a lie perpetuated by those religious people. In nature there are many cases of homosexuality and it is natural and necessary. Homosexuals cannot reproduce, so they adopt. The need to parent is so strong that when the biological parents die and their offspring are still developing, the homosexual animals will adopt and raise until it is ready to reproduce itself. It is not natural to deny yourself what you want.
Noah’s Ark! Now, we are all familiar with this story of the Bible. I have many issues with this story. Firstly, the world is largely undiscovered at this time, setting aside the issue of having a boat large enough, how did the animals in undiscovered places survive. We are still discovering new species everyday, how were they saved? The entire world flooded. Where did the water recede to after that? Two of every animal? Let’s say that is true and someone saved only two animal from extinction, we now know about inbreeding and its dangers, so having the last two of that species would mean nothing. Their offspring would be severely disabled only a few generation in and it would inevitably die out as a result.
“Islam is a religion of love & peace,” This always pops up from all sides of the debate and in a sense it is true, but only if you’re a Muslim. That is saying that the Prophets have always taught to their disciples to love and be peaceful with other Muslims, but everyone else must either convert or be killed. And in the books of Islam – I think there are four or five – it openly states this and also the kinds of things they did, and unfortunately, still do to other Non-Muslims. “They should be treated no better than the dirt,” is a quote I have read. I will not write what exactly they have done, but you can easily find historical books on the matter.
This is a huge subject and I could keep going, but I think I shouldn’t devote my time to this. I didn’t write this as an offence to anyone, it is merely an observation.
I am myself religious as I stated above. And for those wondering about my religion, in short, it is a mix between Paganism and Buddhism.
