I do not dispute the notion that a truly omni-powerful being that could be called “God” in the classic sense can exist. Rather, I doubt that such a being could have any need at all, let alone to help us to reach “his” level. Nor would he have any need of our worship. the creation of the earth is no more or less significant than a given grain of sand on any beach, a supernova, or the big bang.
I also do not dispute the idea that our spirits are self-aware and thus indestructable. There is more evidence both scientific and incidental that our spirits do not die with our bodies, but rather follow the birth of the next in line as described by reincarnation. This follows the first law of thermodynamics stating that energy is not created nor destroyed but moves from one system to another. Our self awareness is the energy that moves from one mortal being to another…plausible but not proven.
It is religion that I dispute and consider worthless. It has been the means by which mankind has enslaved and corrupted everyone and everything of value. It gives power to a select few at the expense of growth for the whole of mankind.
