I know the answer! (*or how I know the big bang is stupid)
December 2, 2012 in Science
God is not a path to knowledge, god is there to keep you blind and limit what you wish to learn. God asks that you believe unconditionally, never question him and assume that he is the answer to all questions. Reason and science are not so blatantly arrogant, science has the humility to allways seek an answer and keeps it’s answers tenative and open to debate. The only assertion is that nothing is certain. That is the power of reason. And this has given us some of the best inovations of our time. The power of god is ignorance : you may never allow thoughts that put doubt into god’s existance or you risk becoming damned or being a fool like that tired old bible verse says. Yet what do you gain from making an imaginary god the answer to everything ? 2+2 is god ? no, that’s as stupid as “in the begining there was god and he willed everything into existance” god is not the answer, it is the escape route, the hiding place, the path to foolishness. It is the assumption that we may never get an answer for the begining of the universe because bronze age barbarians that tought the earth was flat, the center of everything, that bats are birds, and rabbits chew cud where magically given exactly what our science is trying to answer. How it all got here!
Hear the arrogance in the theist voice when they say “I know the answer. Hear it or you will be damned!” “I understand where it all came from! Why don’t your scientist make such assertions ? why is it just a theory !?” because science knows better. Science knows that we don’t know, but it also knows how to find out. Evolutionary theory, gravitational theory, germ theory these are all currently categorized as theories not becuase we don’t understand them or the models are not true but because for as much as we understand them now we want to learn even more!
God has no place in this world. You ask that we humble ourselves yet the theist is so deluded in his arrogance that he doesn’t even see his own arrogance! The theist knows 2+2=god they know the earth is the center of the universe, they know bats are birds, they know right from wrong only out of fear. because they are scared of the big bad god so merciful and kind he would send anyone to hell who doesn’t buy his brand of bull. But grants absolution to the worse of the worse just because they side with him. How sick and twisted is that ?
Be honest, be humble and then evaluate your beliefs do you hold them because of valid reasons? Has god truly earned your trust ? Is faith just gullibility ? Once you do and no longer believe and grow out of having an imaginary friend don’t be afraid, live your life to the fullest and see what you can learn. And may 2013 be the year that yahweh,jesus and the rest of the fables go the way of the zeus fables! And may 2013 bring us closer to truly knowing all the answers.
