Now heres my thoughts Jesus was a real person who had a great influnce on western society in effect if Jesus said something was a good idea it would
be like a movie star endosing a prouduct today. After Jesus died people could say anything in his for example " Jesus his the sun of god." Those
would have known full well that god dosnt exsit.
Now to my point who was the last member of the Cathlic church that knew the truth ? The lie about god as gone on for so long that it as been taken
as truth by many.
Is it possable that the truth has been passed though the generations to a select few? Athough this seems unlikely it is a distrubing thought at
People have questioned the exitsance of since the time of the ancient greeks.
I understand how the idea of god came about it was away of explaing the unexplainable. Who or what group of people invented the idea of god?
Are you talking about the Judeo-Christian concept of God or mankind's belief in a god or gods in general?
Do you question the validity of other religions, i.e., Hinduism, Buddhism, etc.? Most athiests seem to attack the Christian faith as if it is the
only one that teaches about the existence of a supreme, universal entity.
Mankind has worshipped god in one form or another since we began, and your claim that, just because you do not believe in a god, those who did and do
have been knowingly lied to is quite narrow-minded. There is just as much of a chance that one or all of the gods people choose to worship exists, as
there is that they don't.
As to your question about the Truth being passed down to a select few through the ages, I've no doubt that it has been. However, what I feel to be
the Truth and what you hold as the Truth, are two totally different things.
From what I gather, you consider the Truth to be the knowlege that there is no such thing as a universal mind or godhead, and that religion has been
used as a ploy to control the masses.
I, on the other hand, consider the Truth to be the understanding that the all-encompassing One is all that exists, that we are all just fragments, and
that religion has been used as a ploy to control the masses.
The difference between us, however is not that I believe one way and you believe another; it is that I accept the possibility that I may very well be
wrong, and you don't.
What person or group of people were the first to push there agenda in the name of god?
Like I said earlier, mankind has always worshipped some form of god. If you are wondering about the first person to promote the belief in a single,
all-powerful diety, I believe it was Zoroaster around 551 b.c.
