How do you feel about Thor?

other gods

The religious belief that all other faiths are wrong falls in line with the origins of the religions themselves. Humans, by nature, feel resolved in the idea that the concepts with which we subscribe must be correct. Of course the gods and worship invented by mankind mirror the insecurely egotistical attributes of those that dreamed them up- that which humans create tends to always mirror the inventor.

Who created God?

January 30, 2011

Where did God come from?  This has been a question I have been asking
my entire life.The question was always brushed off and never answered.
Religious apologist’s will say “Nothing can come from nothing,
therefore the big bang theory is impossible”. Well, I offer the same
argument about a God or any deity.

How is it possible for a God to come about but impossible for a world,
galaxy, or universe to come about?
The religious will point out that their God has always been in
existence, he has no beginning and he has no end.  The only reason
they believe this is because in the Christian bible it says ” . . .
even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God” (Psalm 90:2).
They are using a 2000 year old book that has talking snakes, talking
donkeys, virgin birth, mass extinction and thousands of contradictions
in it.  This book promotes slavery, rape and murder, of people who
disobey certain rules.  The book is used in saying the world is only
6000 – 10,000 years old which contradicts all science, evolution and
the fact that dinosaurs used to exist.  The book has so much wrong
with it, yet it is perfect to all the followers of it and proves that
God has always existed.

Bertrund Russell has a good analogy that I think applies to people who
think the bible is infallible and the word of god.
“If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china
teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be
able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the
teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful
telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion
cannot be disproved, it is an intolerable presumption on the part of
human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking
nonsense.
If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in
ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled
into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its
existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter
to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the
Inquisitor in an earlier time”

Religious people argue that “everything needs a creator … except the
things I say don’t need a creator, like God”.  This argument is the
worst, they don’t use any sort of logic or thinking when they argue
the existence of their god(s).  As a lot of people see it, as well as
I, religion was the first scientific attempt at understanding the
world and universe.  Hundreds of Gods have come and gone and been
disproven over time, yet some of them still ‘exist’ in a large portion
of the world’s minds.  A quote I like starts off with a question
“Prove god doesn’t exist!” and the ultimate response is “Show me how
it’s done by proving Zeus and Apollo don’t exist, and I’ll use your
method.” Remember, Zeus and Apollo used to be regarded on the same
level as the Christian god is regarded today.  But, as science has
taught us, we now know that lightning doesn’t come from a man up on a
tall mountain.  Lightning is a discharge of atmospheric electricity
which is triggered by a buildup of differing charges within a cloud.
Science is trying to answer the questions of how everything started
and one day all of those questions will be common knowledge (without
looking to a God as the creator), but to take something you don’t know
and say “God did it” is a pretty bleak way to look at the
world/universe and it also won’t get you any smarter.  They use reverse logic when dealing with Evolution.  “Evolution has no proof and therefore I do not believe in it” “God has no proof that is why you need Faith” (Both two sentences spoken directly from the mouth of a religious person)

So, Who created God?  This question has no answer, it can’t have an
answer.  The most religious people in the world don’t know. The people
who claim to talk to God on a daily basis don’t know.  It’s all a
matter of “Faith” to them.  Well, have faith in the teapot that orbits
the sun because it is there!
