God's Irrelevance
God's Irrelevance

I nice way of putting it:
'God – a ludicrous fantasy, designed to provide a career opportunity for the family idiot.'

'Religious belief is not a result of a recognition of an external reality but rather arises from inward patterns of thought – a fancy way of saying it emerges from the mind. A few shepherds many years ago created the greatest lie ever told and somehow nowadays people feel the need for it. It has become a drug under the pressure of many years of oppression. Yes, I am referring to Christianity. I got in a debate on the topic of the christian god, so that’s what I am talking about. Let’s throw muslims and jews in there too.'

If they really believed in heaven they would not mourn after a funeral. All that fuss when you will see them in a few years for eternity

My similar take is "if it is important to YHWH that I believe in him, then I'll take him seriously when he makes himself falsifiable". I'm not interested in any gods who have a deep desire for me to know them, and then promptly start hiding outside of space and time.

Actually, most Christian funerals I go to, the preacher spends a good chunk of time talking about how awesome it is that so-and-so is with God, now. Of course, at my grandmother's funeral, he also spent a good chunk of time shitting on her memory saying that the most important thing in her life wasn't anything she did, but Jesus.

Yeah -- preachers can be real fucks that way..... The asshole who did the service for my mother tried staring me down at the graveside service while he was praying and making sideways remarks in my direction.... I mouthed "Fuck you" several times for his benefit......

He lost.

They're neither all angels, or all demons. Nor are they all opportunist, and family idiots.

Don't you have a background in statistics to really see the highlights and where the outliers roam?

It's not all angels & demons mr. Brown. It's not about that. It's about the masses and how the masses are effected. That's what people should truely more focus on for the betterment of the most. It's not the great man situation for sociology or history, those are misguided easy to point out factors but not the overall reflection. How we treat and harm our downtrodden is the important factor.

A con man is a con man, regardless of calling him a preacher...

I know you like to believe that most or all preachers, are conmen and tricksters, but this is never really the case. Many are honest, kind men, who truly believe their convictions. While there will always be Fred Phelps in the world, there will also be the Oscar Romeros, the Dietrich Bonhoeffers, Rev. Kings, William Wilberforces, Tim Kellers as well.
