I decided that I’d like to change the name of this blog to god is an a**hole. The one, *, will have to suffice as it will get past the censors that censor our freedom of speech.
I no longer believe that god is a ‘good’ god of any sort. I think god is a twisted entity that doesn’t have our best interests at heart.
How could it? The entire game we’ve been setup with here is of a mind deranged. There is nothing of lasting good here as it can all change at a minute’s notice – or without notice, for the worse.
One can live a life of posterity… of absolute good in every situation and in every thought and action… and you know what? That person, that righteous person… that person that does all good – can still have a hellish life… what is the purpose of life if no matter if one does good or bad – he or she is given positives and negatives just like everyone else? What good is there in a life that it makes no difference whether you are a serial rapist or a devoted nun at the monastery for 60 years of your life? Probability affects you the same as everyone else… there are things that go our way, and there are things that don’t, it makes not a hair of difference what your actions are… none. Probability is the same for everyone. Sometimes things go our way and sometimes they don’t.
You can pray for 72000 hours straight (3000 days) as devoutly as you can possibly be… as pure of thought and intention as you can possibly be… and you know what? Your prayer, though it might be heard (who knows?) it won’t be acted on except with the same frequency of probability that affects all things.
I’ve prayed in earnest. I’ve had faith in earnest in my early adult years. I’ve trusted with my entire being that some good thing would happen, and you know what? Statistically some good happened and some bad happened. You know what I noticed? More good happens when I proactively DO SOMETHING to effect a positive change…
Yah, go figure… what I DO has much more effect than what I pray.
People that pray and that attribute great things to what they prayed are ignoring a lot of things. Number one, they ignore the negatives that occur as being their own fault for a lack of faith in the god they’re praying to. Number two, they’re ignoring the fact that probability happens this way and that way. Number three, they’re ignoring the fact that whatever they might be praying for… an “A” on a test… a positive result of a “CAT” scan… the offer on a house they want goes through…. pales in comparison to what 99% of troubles that others have in the world.
In America we pray for simple and selfish things that are so petty as to be laughable. We pray for a sunny day on our vacation so we can enjoy a day at the lake. Never mind that a rainy day would do more good growing crops than that sunny day ever could do… we pray selfishly and pettily.
How can someone actually believe that the thing that made this entire game gives half a care about your prayer about the day – if it’s sunny or not sunny? How could you even have the gall to bother the creator of the cosmos with a plea for an “A” on your test? Are you insane? Are you so wrapped up in yourself and your idea of a personal jesus and god and savior that does things just for you becuase you ask for them? Why are you more important than the 6 billion other people on the planet?
Don’t you understand that you need to ACT in order to change something?
Don’t you understand that this god that you believe in gave you much more power to change the probability to being in your favor by ACTING and DOING something – not praying? Did god ever come through with something?
God is absent. God is a no-show for us now. Maybe in the past god was there -and listened and cared.
God is an * for not caring and for not being available. How can something listen and listen to please from children to stop the pain of rape, disease, father’s abuse, blown off limbs, and infections of the eyes… and do nothing? Please tell me what ‘good’ god can do that? Please tell me some answer and not your typical blow off the question response, “god works in mysterious ways”. Yeah, very mysterious so that they don’t make sense to anybody on this earth… and we’re supposed to believe in a good god?
I believe god is an *, through and through. I have told him daily for the past couple weeks. You know what? I’m still here saying it!
God is not HERE people.
God does not HEAR people.
God is, for all intents and purposes for mankind, a non-issue.
God is dead.
