Going against a lifetime of conditioning is very tough to do. And that’s why being a believer is easy and admitting to yourself there is no God is difficult. The belief in God is simplistic. It’s childlike. Do you want proof that religion, at least in its current form is one of the most ridiculous lies ever told to mankind? People ascribe human qualities to God. God told me that abortion is wrong. God hates fags. God told me to vote for this asshole. Why on heaven and earth would God – considering this mythical being is so all knowing and wise – give two shits about gay people? It’s seems petty and low that someone who is supposed to be so powerful, would even give this a second thought. That is all the proof you need that there is a fundamental problem with the belief in God.
Oh and the simple fact that the people who are the most ardent believers in God are some of the biggest, craziest assholes on the planet. Give me someone who’s calm and rational and not shoving their delusional bullshit down my throat and I’ll at least lend an ear to what they’re saying. Chances are if they are rational, they won’t be trying to sell me on their crazy fantasy about the Magic Man™ in the sky
I recently watched this video (see below) of sick in the head Pro-lifers being stumped by a single question. These creeps are a whole other discussion, but again, I wondered about how they could so easily ascribe such a human trait (oh the poor babies!) to an all powerful being. If God was so concerned about the children, wouldn’t he be rallying his troops to make sure the kids who are born into poverty or to abusive parents be taken care of as well? That would make too much sense and it’s much more difficult to raise a stink for that than it is to attack a lone woman who is making a difficult decision. But again, God taking time out of his busy schedule to infuse these nuts jobs with his small minded wishes just doesn’t add up.
