Why are you against God?
People believe in
myriad of things. There are those who believe in sacred cows, others
believe in snakes, a number of people believe in voodoo, some believe in
resurrection of Jesus and yet others in Muhammad splitting the moon.
Whether these beliefs are based on facts or fantasies they are no oneís
business. As long as these beliefs donít harm people, I donít have to
waste my time disproving them, even if I think they are silly.
The belief in
God, on the other hand has become the force behind the fanaticism and it
is killing people. Millions have died in the name of this god. There is
not a single cause for which people are so willing to die and take the
lives of others as for the belief in God. So it is of paramount
importance to make sure that this belief is founded on solid facts and
not on superstitions.
Upon the closer
inspection and by using logic we can see there are many flaws in the
theory of god as presented to us by these self appointed prophets. God
as a being is specious and can be refuted by logics
My intention is
not to prove or disprove the existence of God. The belief in God is a
personal matter. Itís comforting to believe in an all powerful daddy that can come to
your rescue when you are in peril or when life turns topsy-turvy. I
donít want to take away peoples faith. Religion is a pacifier; itís
useless but has great psychological benefits. People are like children.
I donít like cruelty to children and I will not take away what gives
masses of people peace and comfort.
The reason I
bother to expose the fallacies of religions and their petulant god is
because this god, who is nothing but the figment of our imagination, is
affecting our lives. It is dictating the politics of our lands; shaping
our governments and making us hate each other. The belief in him is killing us.
If an epidemic
breaks out, killing us so successfully as religions do, we
would do everything to eradicate it. But the belief in this god that no
one except a few men of dubious moral and ethical character have seen is left unchecked to claim its victims in every land.
This imaginary god is
responsible for most of the killings that are taking place in all parts
of the world. Even if our conflicts are of political or economical
nature, the schism that separates people is often religious. People may
fight over land, but the line of demarcation is religion. We hate each
other because of religion. We are dying, because of religion. Look at
Iran, Afghanistan, Palestine, Algeria, Kashmir, Philippine, Timor and
virtually everywhere Islam or any other religion is taken seriously.
I say, if we are
going to hate each other over religion, if we are going to kill each
other for the sake of this god, it is important to stop for a moment and
ask whether he for whom we are willing to die and kill exists.
