Part III The Insanity of Mans Lies & Religions
I think it’s truly tragic and sad the way those of the faith react when confronted with differing beliefs and/or opinions when it comes to their faith, or the god they worship.
There have been more atrocities committed throughout mankind’s history in the name in the name of God than any other reason known to man. This little historical fact spotlights what appears to be the most glaring, and ugliest of all defects we human beings face.
Yes, without a doubt, religion seems to be the biggest thorn in the flesh of mankind, and sadly, may just become the rational and the instrument of mankind’s demise. As harsh and as radical as this may sound, it certainly does not fall outside of the realm of possibility when one considers the history of man here upon earth. For even the first known recorded accounts of murder were done because of mans religious belief’s and/or jealousies where God was concerned. The classic examples of this would be when Cain killed Able because God favored Able’s offering over his own as recorded in the book of Genesis. Another ancient example of humans killing each other would be the epic of Gilgamesh, an ancient Mesopotamian poem, which according to historians and other experts, dates back to 2100 B.C. needless to say mankind has from the beginning killed each other and warred with each other.
Now fast forward to our modern times, man now possess the most hideous, and abominable weapons ever known; chemical, biological, nuclear. We no longer fight with clubs and rocks, we now have weapons of mass destruction that are capable of literally destroying all life on earth, and then some; perhaps even beyond the boundaries of our planets atmosphere.
For who knows? Who can even begin to contemplate. It is beyond the human capacity to even begin to understand and/or fathom how the earths destruction would affect the realm of our solar system and the planets within it, and perhaps even extending beyond, to the outer realm of our galaxies where other life forms may exist.
Now what does all this say about God; our creator? That is if in fact there actually is one, as many claim, or believe there to be. What kind of entity would create such a horrible species as that of we humans; and for what purpose?
Consider this for a moment. Most every believer on the planet if asked would say that the main attribute of God is love and perfection, and is completely free of any flaws or defects.
If in fact there actually is one, and/or more that one as the bible claims as the bible seems to indicate. Taking note the book of Genesis where it says “Let us make man in our image”. Again the key words being “US” and “OUR”.
We Humans apparently have it all wrong, backwards, and upside down. We don’t seem to know Jack Shit, about who and what GOD is, and/or any of Gods attributes. And that’s a Fact!
I mean think about it for a minute! Think about just how pathetic and flawed the human race really is, and just how distorted our religious beliefs are.
Take for example the two most dominant religions, Christianity and Islam. We have Christ Jesus on the one hand and Mohammad on the other. It is a historical fact that both men lived and were actually real people that lived at one time.
Christ Jesus on the one hand lived as perfect a life as one could possibly live, he performed countless miracles, healed people who were sick and even raised a couple dead people and restored their life’s breath. He never took the life of another human being and gave hope to literary millions of people throughout the centuries. And Christ never wrote any holy book.
Now on the other hand we have the “so called” Prophet Mohammad who was nothing but a war mongerer, pedophile, politician, and military leader (among other things). He never healed sick people, raised people from the dead, or performed countless miracles as Christ did and Mohammad wrote a “So called’ holy book that condones everything Christ rejected and warned about. In fact Islam even acknowledges that Christ was a great man and prophet of God. Yet Millions of people still follow Mohammad’s teachings and hold this man up in the status of some sort of Godly man. This man Mohammad Was NOT A Godly man. He was no Prophet of God.
People of All religions and on all seven continents have committed many atrocities and unspeakable crimes against their fellow man in the name of God and righteousness from the beginning and onward throughout the centuries. I fear that mankind will not awaken until it is to late, and then it will indeed be to late. I think that perhaps the first thing we need to do is to burn every so called “Holy Book” we written and unlearn everything we’ve been taught about God or think we know about God and his purpose for us, because apparently we have it all wrong and have completely distorted the message.
