for me it has never really jived.
i just dont get it.
some supreme being created is all in his image in like a week.
people for the most part suck.
we hurt others. we ostracize others. we hate what is different and what we dont understand.
seems like a failed creation to me.
another big thing for me is how vast the universe is. billions and billions of galaxies with billions and billions of planets in them.
and this is it? gods big masterpiece is earth and humans(and other living beings on this planet)
if that is the case then epic fail god.
i just can not understand how people believe that we are it. earth is it.
the universe has been around for far too long and there is far too much of it.
it just seems silly to me to live your life according to some book. a book with many edits over the years.
a book that 99.999999999999% of all 'believers' sift through and pick and choose what to believe.
nobody follows it to the letter.
no joe blow down the street and not the pederast preach touching little boys and not mother superior embezzling funds from the coffers.
its a joke.
religion has done far more to divide than to bring together.
far more hate than love and it sucks.
i could maybe, maybe play ball if there was 1 religion. i could maybe get on board with it being it.
but thats not the case.
different religions with different sets of rules and they all super duper swear that theirs is the truth. they just know it.
its a friggin joke.
imo, way back down the line when our ancestors started to eat cooked meat and our brains started to be capable of more complex thought, they started
trying to cope with death. mortality.
they tried to explain lightning and flash floods. they tried to come to terms with their cave lady dying in front of them and over time i think
as thought became more complex, so did religion.
in the end, i despise it. i have for as long as i can remember and i probably always will.
even if the big man parted the heavens to give us a glimpse behind the curtain i still wouldnt follow/live by the scripture.
in fact i would probably despise it even more.
like, thanks for all the terrible # mr all knowing all loving jerk.
you have all this power to do great things and show mad love and instead you hit us with tsunamis that take out hundreds of thousands of people.
thanks for katrina big man.
oh yeah, the plague was awesome. spanish flu was the bomb.
really digging all those infants born 3 month early and addicted to crack...thanks for letting them live an excruciating like for like 1 minute before
then we hear the justifications of it.
free will. original sin....
blah blah blah
if he does exist then i think he must have created us and all we know just to # with us.
i say shove off god. im gonna live my short ass life how i want...
oh, stop sending your cronies to my door. i have a no soliciting sign at eye level.
