What is "God"?

The obvious dilemma one is confronted with when asked to answer the question of ‘what is god’ is how do you define something you don’t have proof exists? How do you explain a supposedly supernatural and certainly unseen entity some claim is real based solely on belief? Indeed, no one can or does explain what god is, and religion seems to be thriving on that serious gap in our knowledge. The belief that there is god is rooted into what may or may not say in the Bible since most church-goers did not actually read it. If they did, they were most likely wearing the reality distorting glasses of the religious dogma many of them were indoctrinated with as little children? Your religious leader is making a nice living off your belief and some of them are multimillionaires. So on what bases do you trust them with what they tell you about god, a human-like deity you have actually never seen and whose image is a product of the confabulations produced by the cleric? As a famous wisdom filled advice offered to the mankind by Buddha goes, “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.” Indeed, no one should live their life according to what others claim to be the absolute truth, especially when they stand to profit from your honest yet blind acceptance of their claims as fact. We should always seek knowledge and the correct understanding of it on our own. Could it be that this imaginary god is a fictional character created by certain authorities that took custody of planet Earth at one time? As suggested by numerous independent researchers today, these authorities seem to have come here from other places in the universe, and they wanted to keep man ignorant of his spiritual nature and true destiny in order to be able to use him as slave. That explains why the Bible condones slavery and demands obedience to the authoritarian "gods" from the Book of Genesis all the way to the forged letters at the end of the so-called New Testament. And yet, could it be that everything there is comes from a source of energy and information, something that has nothing to do though with religion? People are free to believe anything their intellectual abilities entice them to believe in. When one’s irrational belief is imposed on society as the moral standard everybody should abide by, though, it is society's duty to put that belief to the test of logic and common sense. We should respect and protect people’s right to believe, but we should never protect or respect belief itself.

Religion and evolution: two belief systems promoting fals...

What makes us human beings a human being? Evolutionists are convinced we are monkeys with an attitude, cells, chemicals, and electric impulses with a mind of their own lacking any sign of consciousness. Pastors, ministers and priests claim an imaginary god that looks like us males and can make ice cream out of nothing created humans, Earth, and heavens for no good reason, just because “it was good,” says the Bible, and it pleased him to do so. Both groups appeal to science to certify their respective assumptions, about the Bible god being the one who made the entire world or natural selection randomly putting together amazing ecosystems, super-complex biological organisms, and a man able to figure out the theory of relativity. Creationists cannot explain god’s reasoning behind his assumed act of creation and disguise their helplessness by invoking the god-does-it-as-it- pleases-him-to-do theory of everything. On the other hand evolutionists are quite sure everything we see around us is the result of a miraculous accident despite the fact that we know natural laws govern every single aspect of the cause and effect principle. And it only takes a quick look at the structure of the human body to realize how complex all its intricate organs and functions are and that it would have taken billions of miraculous accidents to put together something like that. Sure enough, evolutionary scientists were unable to replicate one single such evolutionary miracle in their laboratories, and by that we mean a mutation that would add parts to an existing species.

Creationism and evolutionism are not very different, they only claim they are. Some believe in the miracles produced by a supernatural human-like god. Others believe in the miracles of evolution. Neither one has produced one shred of real evidence to prove their doctrine true, and yet they both claim they did. In the end, they both keep man trapped in some kind of belief, to the benefit of the powers that be, of the oil man, coal man, natural gas man, the arm dealer and the conniving cleric. We actually do know there is no such thing as a supernatural god, and that we did not evolved from apes or from a bacteria. We can produce better than the Pat Robertsons and the Richard Dawkins of our times as a civilization. And, yes, there is an alternative to all this provided by genuine science, something called quantum physics. atimetochange.net  (May 21, 2012 | post #48503)
