Beyond a Stupid God and the Immortal Man
What if there is no paradise and no life after death, would you still worship your God? Would you still believe in Him? Would you still live a moral life?
It is my contention that the man today has enough knowledge to live in peace, and to continue to exist and even to prosper indefinitely into the future, but for the greed and the God.
Problem here is that most “con“-“temporary” religions believe that the world must end, soon, more specifically the religions that present themselves as mono-theistic. I was, myself, brought up as to be a believer in one God, but as I matured and learned to reason, it became more and more clear that even if there is an entity that could be considered as a “God“, the Creator of all things, we know little of His plan and intentions. The three so called Holy Books and the religions that follow these texts offer little in the way of explaining not just the mysteries of the God, much less of His reasoning and rationale.
Through the ages, mankind has wondered as to why we are here, and where we came from, and if you lived five thousand or two thousand or fourteen hundred years ago, Moses or Jesus or Mohammed would have told you why, and knowing very little for yourself you would have been content to know that a God made you, and only He knows why, and like a good little simple minded child you would have been happy.
Many today can not understand why we have this bunch of radical Muslims that are hell bent on killing everyone, including their own selves.
Because they happen to believe that this is what makes them or will make them closer to their God. If you are surprised, then there is no doubt that you are not a Muslim. If you happen to be a Hindu or a Buddhist then you must question your own beliefs also, and if you happen to be a Christian or a Jew you must also question your own rationality.
Let us for an instant look at the simple bare facts of the conflict going on between Lebanon and Israel, here we have a bunch of Muslims who attacked a bunch of Jews, twice. Then at the behest of, or at least with the acquiescence of a born again Christian, leader of a bunch of other (born again, or may be not) Christians; we had a bunch of Jews start to bomb a country- that is about forty percent or more Christian- in order to teach the Muslims, that may or may not have had any thing to do with the particular two instances, a lesson. All that because the Jews think and some Christians agree that the Jews are the God’s chosen people and that the God (yeah the same God of the Muslims too, the One that spent millennia trying to keep the Jews out of his -this- land) must have, by now, changed His mind and needed the help of the people down here on earth, yes the same people that He threw out of the paradise for being such screw ups.
And why would Hizib-Allah (of the Sheia sect) go and try to help Hamas and the Palestinians (Sunnis), when the Hizib- Allah is functioning out of South Lebanon and not the Sunni lands of Gaza and the West Bank? Most of us remember the bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut in 1983, but how many of us remember that when Israel was controlling South Lebanon in 1982, the Christian militias, working for the Jewish army, had killed at least three thousand five hundred Muslims in the refugee camps of Sabra and Shatilla, setting the grounds for and giving the people a reason to support and promote the radical militias, Hizib-Allah also gained power due to this massacre. It is not to say that the Muslims themselves are not guilty of murders and rapes and pillaging and bombings of the other Muslims and non-Muslims alike, but it is also no excuse for the Christians to support the Jews in their running of the concentration camps of the Gaza and the West Bank for the Palestinians, or to justify for the Jews, their breaking of the limbs of the Muslim youth for throwing rocks at the Jewish tanks.
For the past sixty years, the US and the Europeans have on the one hand supported a Jewish state of Israel in the midst of a bunch of yea-hoo Arabs, while at the same time supporting the so called Islamist governments of Saudi Arabia and the gulf region. Where in the Sharia there are grounds for the establishment of a kingdom? Did Mohammed establish a kingdom? The thieves and the whore mongers that have been running these Arab governments, have constantly agitated their people against the Jews, while stealing the money from their own people to pay for blonde pussy and young white boys (well! among other things), and told their people that they are the keepers of the holy sites, while the United States provided these “Kings“ with their booze (smuggled in the diplomatic pouches) and the hookers (on the pleasure boats in the Red Sea and the Gulf) and the protection from revolts by their own masses (through spying and espionage training). The United States has not only provided these dictators intelligence against the democratic elements, she has also provided the dictators with torture equipment and the taught these the torture techniques.
It is not just the Muslims, and it is not just the first time. History is full of a myriad of examples of the lovers of God doing all of this and worse before. If the Catholic Christians had their inquisitions and the Protestants had Calvin, and then the Salem witch trials and the lynchings, then let’s all get off our high horses and face the Truth, that we are all guilty, but this here is not meant to be a lesson in history anyway, and like the other Calvin once told Hobbs, “we do not want to learn from our mistakes“.
In my previous writings I have discussed, many a time, about the human nature, about God, faith and death and yes, money. And the current turmoil, in the Middle East and the other places in the world involves all of these. Today it is just much more fashionable to blame, variously, the Muslims, the radical Islam and the Islamic terrorists and the Islamo- Fascists.
Do we not have, even today, some Christians who firmly believe that the earth was only created about six thousand years ago? Or that some of the Jews believe that God does not exist after all, since He did not intervene to protect the Jews from the holocaust. While we make light of the faith of some Muslims in whatever the heck it is that the Muslims want to believe, do we ever rationally look at our own beliefs? It matters not really what your religion or your faith; no religion can ever stand the scrutiny of a rational thought. Was Jesus really a God incarnate? Did Mary not really get raped or worse had an illicit affair? If Jesus died on the cross, and that Jesus himself also was God, then did God die? Did Mohammed really travel to the heavens on a horse (shaped like a Pegasus of the Greek mythology)? Why did the parents of Mohammed have Islamic names like Abdullah, and Amina? Why is there no other history of Islam other than the one written by Muslims of the time, Iranian or Christion or a Jewish document..Was Moses not really hallucinating after forty days in the desert? Did God have sex with Mary or send “His Semen” to her with an angel so she could be artificially inseminated? Why would God create such a faulty product as a human being and then send him to hell for being a screw up? Why did God not bar his people from owning slaves or having sex with children? Why did at one time God say you can kill your children till the age of seven? Why would Abraham be allowed to bargain his wife to the king for some food and donkeys? (Does that make prostitution legal and Abraham, also, the pimp in chief? And what is this crap about the seventy- two virgins? How many is just seventy -two when you are going to live for ever? Are there any motels in paradise for you to have sex in? Are you going to have sex while your God is watching? Do you even know what FOREVER means? Is God a joker? Or is God stupid?
Is it not true that the mono-theistic God came from the Greek philosophy and is based on the Greek mythology, who like Zeus used to interfere in the daily affairs of man, till we figured out that God had quit meddling in the daily affairs of man, and that ninety-nine percent of prayers never get a positive result (mostly because by the time a person starts to pray the situation is already hopeless). Do we forget that in the Genesis, sons of gods could marry the daughters of men, and take as many of them as they wished?
The Torah and the Bible and the Koran are good books, great books really, and they teach us a lot about human nature, and the human suffering and contain a lot of good and pertinent advice on how to live and behave in a society, and Moses and Jesus and Mohammed were really good people, probably, who meant to teach their fellow humans as to how to live peacefully. They were also the history’s three great failures.
I suppose many of you are upset by now that I call your God stupid, so I will stop telling you how the scriptures are inconsistent and contradictory. That writers of the scriptures think the earth is flat, that it never snows anywhere and that there are no places on earth where the ground is frozen, that there are places where the sun never goes down for six months of the year, that the land promised the Jews can not be very much since it was only what some one saw standing up on a hill top. And the Ten Commandments on two tablets of stone is just a story as to how they were to be the lasting words of a God, if not, why would a God Himself go through the trouble of “hand chiseling the stones” (according to the Judge Roy Moore) only to have them broken up and lost forever- immediately. (God? Hands? Chiseling?)
If actions speak louder than words then let’s see what these “Believers” think of their own God.
You have seen a child when he hides some thing in one hand and shows you the other empty hand saying see I don’t have it. I have always said that if you lie to me you must think that I am stupid and can’t figure you out. So why is it that the believers keep doing bad stuff? Do they also believe that their God is stupid? Let us start by looking at the example of Iraq, where the Sheia and the Sunni are killing each other (mind you, that “the born again guy” thinks it is not a civil war, but we shall get back to that), there is and aya in Koran that says that when God wants to destroy a people “they become mute and deaf and blind and they do not understand”- AL-Baqra-, do you not think that these people in Iraq today are truly deaf mute and blind, hell bent on self destruction, is murder and death the surest way to get closer to a God?
So much for the Islam’s message of peace, brother hood and equality, or surely they think that their God is stupid and did not know what he was talking about. Or in the other Islamic countries where bribery is rampant at all levels, while every kid in their schools is taught that the bribe giver and the bribe taker will both go to the fires of hell! Surely their God does not see what they are doing, or does He? I am sure by now some illiterate and blind mullah who does not know that the meaning of first word of his holy book is “READ“, and the one who himself can not read, is willing to issue a Fatwa, (a divinely inspired decision and thus the order of God Himself) that I should be killed for my blasphemy -seems like a lot of people are talking directly to the God these days, I don‘t know why the God ever needed any prophets, He should have waited for these, our times, and saved wear and tear on His angels- while he can go back to touching and fondling little girls and boys. And the God is stupid.
Kept illiterate and poor by design of their landlords, masters and their governments for the last thousand years, most Muslims today grow up believing that murder and cruelty are the solution to all the world problems. Muslim fathers in general, having no power or a say so as to what goes on in their daily lives, being abused by the police, the military and government bureaucracies, they take out their frustrations on their own children and these children act violently every chance they get. A Muslim woman spends her life a mere step away from physical abuse and rape, yes, the people who are told by their Koran and their prophet that any extra- marital sex, or fornication condemns them to hell are not too afraid to rape any female they have around or can have control over. The holy men who showed up for “Jihad” in Bosnia were only too happy to “marry” young girls first upon their arrival in the war zone before doing their Jihadi thing. The “Islamic” militia in Algiers “married” little girls, as young as seven and eight, before raping them and then murdering them.
And whatever happened to the message of Islam, of equality, of peace, of brotherhood without regards to the language, of the nation or the color of one’s skin. The oil nations of the gulf pay their workers depending on one’s passport, not the qualifications. People from the Islamic nations are paid less than the Europeans, blacks are referred to as slaves, women are stoned to death for fornication, or murdered in name of honor if raped, while the men go to visit prostitutes, screw young boys, or rape their kin or spend their free times jacking off themselves or each other. Their ignorant uneducated and stupid religious police (when not harassing those that do not go to prayers, or men with long hair or Western attire) the religious police in Saudi Arabia are easily spotted walking around scratching themselves because they shave their balls) do not allow the daughters of the poor to leave a burning buildings without cover while their own daughters run around half-naked on foreign beaches, or as in case of the occupation of Kuwait, prostitute themselves. While on the other hand, the poor women, or women who would go out of the house to work are constantly in danger of being raped by their masters or bosses who know that the woman must keep quiet for her shame or may be killed by her own family for bringing dishonor to her family. Most of the religious police in Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan come from uneducated people of the madrasa’ and are not other wise employable, these are actually anti education morons that like to close down any schools for girls and any other school teaching more than Koran. The governments need to find other uses for these asses.
Here are a few examples of what I am talking about directly from the Arab News, the Saudi news paper on line; these stories were published as I was writing this article.
Man Dumps Wife on King Fahd Causeway, Arab News
DAMMAM, 2 August 2006 — An argument between a husband and wife on the King Fahd Causeway to Bahrain ended with the woman being left behind, the Al-Yaum daily reported yesterday. The couple were on their way to the Gulf country, a popular vacation retreat for many Saudis, when the husband, fed up with his wife’s complaining, kicked her out of the car right on the causeway. He also retained her passport so she couldn’t follow him across the international boundary. Furious, the woman went to the cops, saying her husband had stolen her passport. The cops basically told the woman, “sorry lady, but that’s a family affair”, and proceeded to escort her back to her home in Dammam.
Religious Police Separate Sexes as Fire Rages, Arab News
BURAIDAH, 31 July 2006 — When a building goes on fire the first thing that most people would think about is saving the people trapped inside. However, when a fire broke out at a wedding hall in Buraidah on Saturday, officials from the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice quickly went into action by separating men and women guests who had escaped the fire and gathered outside the wedding hall, the Al-Watan daily reported. In the mean time, while the Civil Defense arrived, the relatives of the groom rolled up their sleeves and worked hard in extinguishing the fire. On seeing the religious police ignoring the fire and ordering people to separate, many of the guests asked them if they had no drug dealers or bootleggers to catch.
Why Stepparents Hate the Children of Their Spouses, Arab News
MAKKAH, 5 August 2006 — Following the high-profile case of six-year-old Rahaf, a girl from Taif whose stepmother subjected her to months of abuse, the issue of stepparents abusing their partners’ children from previous marriages remains highly potent.
The question remains as to why stepparents commit such acts of brutality. According to a report published recently in the Makkah newspaper Al-Nadwah, many people end up disliking their partners’ children from other marriages, and with the aim of forcing the children out they behave violently toward them. In some situations stepparents have even been known to force children to become household servants.
Anas is a young Saudi whose mother married another man after his father died. He was only seven years old then. Anas says his stepfather, who was above 50 and father of five children, turned his life upside down the moment he came and moved into their home.
“He was taking control of everything, even the decision-making. My mother was paying for him and his children from my late dad’s inheritance,” said Anas. According to Anas, his mother would not listen to him when he used to tell her not to waste money. “In the end there was nothing left for us because my stepfather took control of everything and gave our inheritance to his children,” he said.
Jameela is a teenager whose father died when she was young. Jameela says a man came and asked for her mother’s hand in marriage just to get hold of their inheritance. “At first the man was nice and acted like he wanted to be a good dad to replace our lost father. Soon after the marriage he showed his real intentions,” said Jameela. Jameela and her brothers quickly realized what their stepfather was trying to do. “We told our mother about him and she warned him to be careful but he continued to put pressure on us and try controlling our inheritance. After a while my mother went to court and managed to get a divorce and throw him out of our lives,” said Jameela. Still young, Jameela’s mother refuses to marry again and as a single mother devotes her time in raising her children.
Another sad story is that of Saad whose father died at a young age leaving him and his siblings orphan. Saad says due to economic reasons his mother was forced by his grandfather to marry a violent man who used to beat Saad and his siblings as their mother stood by helpless and in tears. “One day he threw me out of the house and told my mother not to let me in. I had nowhere to go so I went to my grandfather’s house in search of food and a place to stay. When my grandfather saw me, he grabbed me by my hair and threw me out saying he didn’t want to see me because he couldn’t look after me,” said Saad.
Saad says he went back home to plead to his mother to let him in but she said that his stepfather had threatened to throw her out too if she did so. In the end Saad ended up living on the streets for a few weeks surviving on handouts and charity.
“Justice was seen at the end when my stepfather died in car accident. I must say that I was not sorry that he died because of the suffering he brought to my mother and me,” said Saad. He returned home and his mother promised to focus on raising his younger brothers and not marry again.
Um Ahmad is a Saudi woman whose husband of 10 years died of cancer leaving four children. Many men came to ask for her hand in marriage but Um Ahmad refused them all. Finally under pressure from her family she married a man. Prior to marrying the man Um Ahmad made a condition that he would treat her children nicely like his own and never separate them from her. “A few months after the marriage, he began hating my children for no reason at all. He would criticize them for trivial things and hit them over nothing. I threatened him saying that if he continued doing this then I would leave him,” said Um Ahmad.
In the end Um Ahmad left the man. “He was treating my children like servants. I thought that he would show them the fatherhood that they had lost when my husband died. At the end I went to court and won the divorce case against him and he was out of our lives forever,” she said.
10-Year-Old Girl ‘Sold’ in Dowry Scam, Arab News
MADINAH, 5 August 2006 — A fifty-year-old man said he was duped into paying a SR25,000 dowry for marriage to a ten-year-old girl, the daily Al-Watan reported yesterday.
The girl’s mother said the older man had called her and identified himself as the future husband of her daughter. Initially the woman was outraged, thinking it was a prank call or a message from a sicko. After a second attempt to “collect his due”, the man explained that he had paid a dowry to the girl’s father. The woman then asked the man to stop by. With the woman’s brother in the room, she explained to the man that her ex-husband, who had abandoned his wife and daughter shortly after she was born, was responsible for scamming dowry money from the fifty-year-old would-be husband. The woman said her ex-husband was in financial difficulty and had orchestrated this scam.
The man, oblivious to the fact that it is not acceptable to pay a dowry to a father unbeknownst to a daughter, regardless of her age, was still under the impression that the girl was of an acceptable age for marriage until the woman showed him what he had “purchased” unseen. The man then became very angry at being suckered and vowed to sue the father for the dowry money.
The paper, quoting a local judge in Madinah, said such arrangements are illegal. The judge said this isn’t the first time an ex-husband has tried to extract dowry money from other men.
Dowries are the rightful property of brides, but often fathers attempt to hedge control of the money from their daughters — either to protect the funds from the new husband who might try to get the money back or for more selfish reasons.
Penniless Woman Thrown in Street, Arab News
DAMMAM, 31 July 2006 — In a heart rending tale, pedestrians in a city street all too often notice a woman sitting on the sidewalk under the hot sun making loud pleas to her ex-husband to allow her to live in his house from where she was recently evicted.
Umm Muhammad has been leading a life of abuse and humiliation on the streets of Dammam. A mother of five daughters and three boys, she was divorced by her husband of 25 years a few years ago.
She says her husband was extremely cruel and difficult to get along with. Umm Muhammad’s situation worsened as her father died shortly after her divorce leaving her and her children destitute and helpless. With nowhere to go, she began living in a separate part of her husband’s house but the man would frequently drive her out with no regard for her and the children. “It’s for the sake of my children that I have been putting up with all these indignities,” she said.
She added that the social welfare department gives her a monthly allowance of SR700, which does not cover her lodging and food. Umm Muhammad hopes for a better life and says that if the welfare system would include payments for her children then that would considerably help her in improving her life.
While the Muslims are going around bombing and killing each other, thus creating ever larger numbers of widows and orphans, God allows them to have up to four wives so that the widows and orphans may be cared for and provided for. This idea has been totally perverted by the “religious” into taking ever younger girls for “new” wives, the richer a Muslim (or even “holier” for that matter) he will continue to marry younger and younger girls, as young as ten or eleven. Sometimes divorcing one or two so he can marry newer girls. I suppose a stupid God can not discern the perversion of His laws. King Saud bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia was purported to have had over a hundred “wives“, and of course Idi Amin of Uganda had “wives” by the thousands. This perversion has also been carried into the “Jihad” movement where young men kill themselves for a promise of seventy two virgins.
Somewhere in there this message of Islam is lost that a good deed done for the expectation of a reward is not worthy, a good deed must be performed as that of one’s way of life, a way of self sacrifice, to hold another’s need or desire above one’s own. If there is a true God, then these suicidal morons may find themselves sitting there in hell, jacking- off just like they were doing it here on earth. Islam’s message of purity, piety, of control of sexual desires (Mohammed was married eight times) has of itself become a grounds for rape as punishment, rape as a form of dishonor, and abuse and no one is worried about the prohibition on fornication, proving once again that religion has nothing to do with rationale. Anyone killing themselves and others just so they can get laid in the hereafter give stupidity and new definition.
In Islam there is another message that has been totally corrupted; the message is that if you are rich you will be rewarded in the hereafter for spending money for charitable causes. So it is that the whores of Riyadh and Kuwait and Khaleej, as well as thieves of public monies form Cairo to Karachi to Jakarta will spend large amounts of money that they steal from their people for the so called charities. The words of “Hilal” and “Hiram” appear to be meaningless to these idiots, as in Islam there is no benefit for spending money for charity is it is stolen or taken in as a bribe. There is an aya in The Koran that talks about such people, “Allah o yesthasi o beyhim wa ya mudu hum fe tughiani him ya mahoun“....” “That God laughs at such people and allows them to wallow in their darkness, for a period”.
If there is a God, If their is a message, If there is Islam, then the practioners of Islam must also believe that their God is stupid. What God. The creator wants his people to self destruct? Or to destroy others? Is the so called message of such a God not contradictory to His own desire. Of course the whole universe as far as we can see is being destructed and reborn, but we do not see an agent anywhere, except that the man has taken it upon himself to ruin his own world. And then what kind of an understanding of Islam do these thugs have when they ignore the lesson of the Koran that there can not be any coercion in Islam, (la ikrah fe al deen) and they hold gun to the heads of the hostages and make them read foolish statements about conversion? What humanity (insa-niah) when you cut the throat of a woman that spent her life trying to help the poor of your country? The only lesson the Muslim governments and the rich Muslims in the countries like Egypt, and Jordan and Pakistan should be that need to improve and increase the education of their masses, stop corruption, and decrease poverty.
If there is a God, if there is a message, if there is a method, then what is God telling us by placing the three religions in the same small corner of the world, Knowing they will try to kill each other, and that there will be no peace of his earth, then this God is stupid, stupid, stupid and thus not worthy of man‘s worship. Why is it, that only the worshipers of this One God are hell bent on killing others that do not follow their own particular creed? It is not just that the Muslims today want to kill the others who are not Muslims; they are willing to kill all that do not belong to their particular sect. We can either blame it on the religion, but then they claim that Islam is a religion of peace, thus we must blame the violence by the Muslims the world over, on their ignorance and lack of education, funny how even Mohammed knew that if his people are not properly educated there will be troubles, thus the admonition, “IQRA”, READ.
Killing people in the name of “The One” The Almighty” “The God” is not a new phenomenon of the mono-theistic religions. Jews of the ancient times made it a hobby in the old Palestine to kill all others, the Christians have the blood on their hands of the heathen Africans whom they went out to “save“, the populations in the “new world” were decimated by the Christians, millions again paid the ultimate price for not “Knowing God”. Not to mention the Inquisitions of the old Europeans. If any today are shocked at the carnage in the world wrought on by the Muslims, all they need to look at is the history of this God, and human sacrifice has never been out of style.
As the human knowledge and understanding increased over the millennia, the message of God also changed, and “improved“. It can be readily seen that most of the God’s message has been relevant to the age and the area of the prophecy, as the God of Moses addresses the problems of the Jews in their captivity and then Jesus rails against the corruption of the bankers and the clergy, Mohammed tries to address the problems of the Arabia, from the arbitrary killing of female children to theft by the Bedouin, to increase in charity, freeing of the slaves, decreasing racism and declaring, finally, the brother- hood and equality of all the humanity. Mohammed himself an orphan at birth (his father died before he was born) emphasized taking care of the orphans and giving them their rightful portions of the estate of their fathers, also there is an aya of Koran in the Surah “the Sunrise” that states, “did He not find you an orphan and provided protection for you?”. Today in Islamic countries we have cottage industry of murder that keeps creating orphans, just as compassionate conservatism creates more and more poor so we can be more and more compassionate, and the lot of an orphan in a Muslim country is rather poor indeed, of course Mohammed was a failure.
Muslim Nations Most Corrupt: Badawi Reuters
KUALA LUMUR, 29 August 2006 - Islamic nations are ranked as among the world's most-corrupt and the fight to tackle the scourge could be tough due to poverty and poor governance, Malaysia's prime minister said yesterday.
Taking his anti-corruption message to the rest of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) nations, Abdullah Badawi, who chairs the group, said there were no quick fixes to completely eradicate the problem.
"I am deeply saddened to note that Muslim countries, as a group, do not rate very highly when it comes to perceptions of corruption," he said at the opening of the group's first forum on graft.
"I believe that many of the development challenges that the Muslim Ummah (community) faces have their roots in problems of poverty, poor governance and limited education opportunities," he said.
Citing Transparency International's 2005 report, he said the Muslim country with the best record could only rank 29th out of 158 countries surveyed.
"More than half of the bottom 10 places were occupied by Muslim countries," he said. Chad was ranked as the most corrupt.
"The current condition that Muslim countries find themselves is deeply alarming and distressing," he said in a speech.
The 57-member OIC comprises 1.8 billion people, ranging from wealthy Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to poor African states such as Chad and Sudan.
Transparency International said the perception that Muslim nations were among the most corrupt had nothing to do with Islam.
"It's more to do with ... the income level," David Nussbaum, chief executive of the Berlin-based group, told Reuters. "Some of the countries right at the bottom of the list are very poor." Badawi, who came to office in late 2003, convincingly won elections in 2004 after campaigning to clean up corruption and cronyism.
He has charged a minister for land with corruption and dropped another minister from Cabinet and his party for money politics, but critics say he could do more.
OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, in a prepared speech delivered at the forum, put the blame on unethical multinational firms doing business in Muslim countries.
"I also wish to identify the role of MNCs, who are responsible for spreading the curse of corruption," he said.
One of the common stories of the Holy Scriptures is that of the Noah. We are supposed to believe that Noah built a great ship and in it he placed a pair of all the animals in the world, then the great floods came, it rained forty days and forty nights and the entire world was covered with the flood waters. Let me try to keep it real simple here. The Bible implies that the earth (and the universe) was created just six thousand years ago, if so, and that the Adam lived to be a thousand years old, then more than likely the great floods came only about five thousand years ago. As I have said before, the people who wrote these stories thought the earth was flat and existed within the limited boundaries of the Northwest Africa, Southeastern Europe and West Asia, by the time of Mohammed the “earth of the books had expanded some more”. Today we know that the aborigines of Australia have lived there longer than that, The Americas were populated over twelve thousand years ago. The ruins of Moenjadaro and Harapa in the South of Pakistan pre date the great flood. And is it even possible that we have all evolved from the few people on the Noah’s ark into all the different colors and shapes of the humanity today, in just five thousand years of evolution? Noah’s great flood that covered the whole world is a genuine farce.
In the Koran, Mohammed reconfirms the story of Jesus, the virgin birth, the coming of the angel with the good news and visit of the three wise men, all the way up to the crucifixion, (a cruci-fiction), Islam contends that Jesus ascended to heaven before the crucifixion and another was killed in Jesus’ stead. There may have been a rabbi of the Jesus’ likeness in “holy land”, but why is there no record of what happened to this child that spoke to the wise men from his crib in the manger, beyond the day of his birth, his childhood? Why did the Jews of his time ignore him so completely right after his birth? Why did Mary marry Joseph after she gave birth to the “son of God”? How did Joseph dare sleep with a woman that was The Mother of God? If Jesus was truly God incarnate, born of a normal birth to a human mother, was he ever any part of the mother receiving blood from her and living and nourishing on her blood and taking her milk, then does God Himself need food? Did the man create a God in his own image? By all indications Jesus ate, breathed, slept and probably did the number one and did the number two, why would God go through all the trouble when he could have waited a couple of thousand years and showed up on the CNN, with Larry King one day, or on His own channel the FOX news, with Bill O‘Reilly, or even the Sean boy.
Looking at the holy books, only The Koran says that it was delivered to Mohammed, word for word, from God, through the Arch Angel Gabriel. Mohammed also proclaimed the Torah and the “Old Testament” to be “Holy Scriptures“. The Torah as we know is nothing more than a compilation of oral history of the Jews, and the Jewish law, over the millennia, it has been around for a long longtime, but what it has to do with God is seriously questionable. We know that “The Bible” was compiled by humans and re-written by humans, it is also a gathering of some selected stories about “a Man” who presumably lived around two thousand years ago, with a few stories of the ancient text of the Torah mixed in, DOES THIS MAKE THESE BOOKS ALL HOLY? I guess you can believe that to make you feel better. Far as we can tell Mohammed is the only one who had his book (The Koran)written down in his own time, and proclaimed it as the divine word of God, there is no proof that either Jesus or Moses knew a thing about the books that are attributed to them. It is also unclear as to why Koran and Mohammed would call these books holy and call the Christians and the Jews believers and then go on to slight them and not consider them as equals.
As I have written before, to be “Right” a religion must be “perfect”, right in the absolute, and when one thing is right in the absolute, it makes everything else absolutely wrong, there in lies the problem of the three mono-theistic relgions.
From the beginning, the Christianity had a shaky start. The Jews were promised that God will send them a Messiah, but when Jesus came they refuse to recognize him as such, and the God said, “oh well, I guess I tried, and I should try again later, this was of course my own foul up. Yeah, right!
Christ was out there, talking from his crib, then later performing miracles and giving sight to the blind and curing the lepers and walking on water, all of it was not proof enough for God’s chosen people, “the Jews”. Now what would you do if you were God?
During his lifetime on earth, Christ had a hard time getting anyone to follow him. Also with the coming of Jesus, God also changes his view of the mankind, circumcision is no longer required (that alone should have garnered a bunch of converts don’t you think?) you are allowed to have pork roast and open a barbeque restaurants, but the Jews would have none of it and they will sit there still waiting for a Messiah. Don’t you think that God would be royally pissed? But no, He says give me a few thousand years and I will try again. And Jews still remain the God’s chosen few. Far as we know Christ never started a church of anything, did not establish new rituals or practices and dies a Jew and was given a Jewish burial.
According to many of the Christian faith, Christ was also God, or God incarnate, if one were to use his God given brain, one would find himself lost in confusion. Ok so Christ is God, and God dies, but God cannot die, so the whole charade is a farce, how can he die for our sins , but He can not die, so either Christ did not die or he was not God, take your pick. Unless of course you believe God to be a Charlton, bent on confusing the mere humans.
There are other things. Any one with a good knowledge of history will know that God also did not give a book to Jesus, all that a Bible truly is, is a compilation of old lure about a God and the creation (the mythology predates even the arrival of Moses and the Jews) with a few stories about the life of a man called Jesus mixed in. It is not clear that there ever was man exactly like Jesus, born of a so called “virgin birth”. Could it be possible that Mary actually was a hermaphrodite with two sets of fully functioning organ that made herself pregnant? But let it be. We do know that Jesus did not start a church, did not set the time or a manner of worship, design a church, or cross or a crucifix, was not born on Christmas or die on Easter. Surely he did not set a fifty eight minute time limit on sermons to start and end with the television broadcast hour, including an appeal for more money.
It is a matter of faith after all. Say you are a football fan, now it is more than likely that you have a preferred team, usually from a nearby town, usually the one that your father was also a fan of, and everyone you know is the fan of the same team. You worry about the health of the team members, you follow their stats, the game dates, the rivals, you buy tickets for the game if you have money, and whatever else it is that the fans of a team are
supposed to do. All the while you never think that in reality it makes no difference to any one, what so ever, whether your team wins or loses, your life is no better or worse even if the team was to totally disappear, it is the same with your faith in God.
If Jesus were a real Messiah, and the Jews were told previously to follow him then the Jews that refused to recognize him would be operating against the will and the word of God and thus not worthy of remaining the chosen ones and redemption. Of course the “True” Christians must also believe that the Jews are fallen and sinner and not hold those in any great or other wise esteem. The problem is that when you have been brain washed since your birth into believing all these lies it is very hard to break away. And so we go on killing and murdering and raping and pillaging, stealing and lying, all the while “knowing” that we are forgiven. My dears, IF there is real GOD, then we ARE really FUCKED.
We know that the books of the bible are actually stories from the distant past, of the times before Moses, as they were related by the old scribes in many various volumes by various authors. The lore of the Genesis is similarly related by different people, all in different forms. So how it is that we believe in what we have as a word of GOD himself. If such then what about the versions that were left out, or not believed? Where did that divine guidance come from and to whom? Considering the original texts they are no different than any other types of stories of the mythologies of the era, from the Greek and the Indian (Hindu) and the Mid-Eastern (Babylonian). What makes them a work of the God, and holy is that this is what we are told to believe since birth. Sadly, so many of the so called educated and enlightened are so brain washed since birth that they insist on following the charade. But are we any closer to knowing The Truth? I am afraid not. It is but our insistence that we know it all, know what the whole truth is, and that has been the down fall of the mankind through out the history. If the Bible, or the Torah, and the Koran, which is based on the previous two books, the infallible word of God, then it must also follow that the Almighty has a difficulty making up his own mind, how is he to judge the humans for their flaws.
In its early days Christianity was a cult of the personality of Jesus, his followers were not sure of what they had seen, it is very possible that Jesus may have, only very philosophically, claimed himself to be “The God” or the “son of God”. Over the period of time, in certain Christian denominations he has not only become “the God” he has actually replaced “the God”. So the savior not only died for us on the cross, he will also save us from “Himself”.
The Christianity in the East spread slowly, mostly consisting of small communities, and cults. These people lived austere lives spending more time in meditations and waiting for the return of their Messiah. In Europe, however, Christianity received a big boost from the conversion of Constantine, but it also lost its message as the pagan rituals and themes were incorporated into this new religion. Pageantry, drinking and debauchery became an integral part of this new form of Christianity in Europe; they are still part of it today. Easter, Mardi Grass, Fasching, Christmas, Santa Clause all have their origins in paganism, having nothing to do with the Christ but are yet considered part of Christianity.
The European Christianity was never too Christian, with the pagan sex standards mixed in with the Christian Ritual, even the popes had affairs and had kids, and why not, if you could make it to a confession or pay the church some money all your sins were forgiven, including adultery. The reformers tried to change that with Calvin preaching piety and austerity, but who wants that, even as the new Christians escaped form Europe to the new country (US) the chastity soon fell away by the wayside, poverty stricken farmers pushed their daughters out the door to find husbands, the traveling salesmen needed company, the cow boys and the miners that worked in the West, building roads and the railroads, and settled the lands needed prostitutes for company, all the way to the Alaskan pipe line. During the two world wars men were away and the “ brothers” took care of the ladies back home. To their credit the returning men , many a time accepted the children born while they were away as their own, and why not, did they not also bring back group sex and wife swapping. The reform movement is reformed again, why not Jesus died on the cross for your sins so why not make it worth his while, adultery today is so common place that you cannot even mention it as a grounds for divorce in many jurisdictions. Did not Christ die so we could just fuck each other? And that we do.
Mohammed claimed himself to be the last prophet, and as mentioned before, he affirms that The Bible and The Torah are holy books that are “given” to Jesus and Moses. Now when we consider Mohammed’s claim the that the angel Gabriel came to him and recited to him every word of the Koran, we must assume that he believed that Jesus and Moses also received the ”holy scriptures” in a similar fashion as the divine word of God, but that we know better. We know that the majority of the stories of the Old Testament and the Bible are nothing more than the old lore predating Moses by eons. We know they were not the word of God given or delivered to the prophets. The story of the Jewish tribes wandering through the desert would obviously consider their own self to be the god’s chosen people, if not who else, would not every tribe and every individual consider himself to be the chosen one? And if some one from the tribe got up on a hill and told his people that it was their land far as the eye can see, would they argue and say no? Once again why would a true God set in motion a chain of events that would forever cause a rift between those who believed in Him? Why not just one singular message, for all ages, why the hundred thousand plus prophets?
In the old times older people were considered to be wiser, with no other way of passing on the information but from mouth to ear, the oldest had seen the most and heard the most so they had more information on stuff from growing crops to fighting enemies and human relations. Today if you step out in front of an on coming truck, or a child running across the street is killed by a vehicle is it still God’s will? Or is it the consequence of stupidity of the man confronted by the laws of physics. Is it not the fact that we have come to understand danger and the consequences of unsafe acts and have learned to be safe, ( well at least in the matters other than those of sexual nature). If today you still go out and have unprotected casual , zip-less sex and catch herpes or AIDS is it God’s will or your stupidity? What does God have to do with anything, we know the odds, we know how to protect ourselves from infections and heat stroke and frost bites, is it that the more we know the less of the god’s will applies to us? And today we are able to thwart God’s will in every way, sometimes delaying even death itself by all kinds of means and we can give child to a woman that was “designed” to be childless, we could even tell Mary “ who the daddy is”.
Many today will proudly tell you how they know everything, that they have studied the Bible, or the Torah, or Koran, that these scriptures are all infallible words of God, but a vast majority of them have never studied the other books besides the one pertaining to the one of their own belief system, and if they did it was not to look for commonalities in the three religions but to try to denigrate the other book, what a pity that a Christian must believe that he is right, but at the same time must consider the Jew to be the chosen one and yet have to try to convert the Jew to Christianity so the Jew can be saved, does this make any sense? But we keep believing in the whole charade, fully convinced that we are right, Or is it that the God has a low IQ?
