The Logic Of God
Alright, so today I was reading a textbook for my psych class. Now granted some students, including myself, have found psych books to house
information that is true, but not always complete. A man named Victor Frankl, who wrote the book
Man's Search for Meaning
He said that
"examining the finiteness of our existence and the certainty of death adds meaning to life."
Then it all just hit me with a swift motion. That’s why religion works. People blindly follow religion because it gives meaning to our lives, so
that we don’t have to learn or understand its meaning individually. We are made to believe that abandoning this or that particular religion will
make us lose our meaning for life. Are we so gullible that we would doubt ourselves of our own identity? Or is it that we’ve become lazy? We don’t
want to exploit the religious tools that parade in front of us and actually find meaning in ourselves. It is the perfectly subtle fear-mongering
machine. It even brings wars along with it, so there will be large profits made for its rulers!
This same author mentions that if life were not finite, we could spend our lives doing whatever we wanted because time would continue forever
But what this author does not consider is that we are not finite, because our souls do not die when our body’s fail. These bodies are just vessels,
as mentioned many times in religious texts such as in the Bible.
 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,  that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
or 1 Thessalonians
4:4 Each one of you should know how to possess his vessel. Should restrain his bodily desires, and make even his appetites holy.
I would like to invite people to find themselves. We are lost right now, and the task is so simple: find out who you are.
So I thought, how would people react if they knew they were all just parts of God? Not claiming that each of us is gods, but we're each God. Get
If everybody just suddenly – zip- knew it. I don’t think a lot of us would be able to take it right now, because many of us have sold our
eternal souls for money and material possessions. Our obsessions with the physical world are what keep us here. There is no such thing as death in our
Reality, because energy is never destroyed, but transferred.
Why would we look towards death as a certain goal, if we can live even after our worldly bodies cease to function? Many religions believe in
afterlife… how does this fit with the logic of your God? It does not fit with my logic at all, and if it does not fit with yours… are you thinking
To then tie this in with our great country, America, I would like to point something I found in my history textbook. (Sorry, I gotta find some way to
remember these boring courses.) In the book, it is pointed out that the early Sudanic kingdom of Ghana flourished for nearly 1000 years! But when the
kingdom came toppling down, it is speculated that “the empire had incorporated so many different peoples that it lost its cohesion.” Coincidence?
I think not.
In Protoplasmic Traveler’s extremely well-known post All
Roads Lead to Rome
(which I would suggest any ATS member to read ASAP) He addresses the divide & conquer outlook. If a country invites any
nationality to live within its borders, no matter how enticing the “freedoms” presented appear, that country has naturally become easier to
