Why is God allowed to do whatever he wants? Because we are ants? Does it truly matter to us if we are ants or not? Of course it does not. We are people with thoughts, feelings, hopes, and dreams... And some God who does not even care enough to show himself gets to determine our fate based upon something as silly as our belief in a being with no evidence to support it? We are damned to hell from birth, we exist in a world that allows perdition to follow us all, devouring all that we do, making it dust and worthless, all because some God wants to have his way with us? That is my number one complaint about the whole concept, the idea, an odd, illogical, justification that some all-powerful being is allowed to nullify all of our accomplishments and lay them to waste, because, we are simply a piece of his puzzle that will shortly disappear, because we are unworthy sinners. If anyone is the sinner, it is God, because he not only allowed all of this to happen, he enabled original sin and bred it into us. What God is that? A worthless-scared-mindless-little-human being. That is the god that is worshipped. We assign words like omnipotent and all-mighty to this, god, but it does not change the fact that it is a human being, with the same failings we all have. Yet, of course, this thing is our God, because it is PERFECT. Why is it perfect? Because, even though what we base our reasons on would disagree, a book told us so. Hooray, let us all worship the human with a god complex, the being, that if it existed, damned us to endless hell. Yes, I may indeed sound belligerent, but that is only because I am passionate. I wasted many years of my life believing in a fairy tale, and I hope that no one else ever has too. There could be a creator, but he is not anything you have come to know. He is not the God of Abraham, he is not Jesus, he is not Odin, nor is he Osiris... We simply do not know if a creator exists, he has not revealed himself to us. He has given us no evidence. The purpose of creation, no matter how much the Bible would like you to believe, is not about us choosing to believe in an invisible man or not. We only have one life, and we should not waste it in our hopeless and unproven fantasies, instead, we should seek to better the world for ourselves, and everyone else who lives in it. I have gone off on a tangent, I know. Sorry about that. But, at times, it is difficult to keep my feelings on the matter constrained. I find it shocking that some want to be slaves. Because that is what the common interpretation of God allows for us. I am not a slave. Should a God exist, I doubt he would want me to be a slave. Stop following many-thousands-of-years-old myth, do not allow superstition, thought up by our unwitting ancestors, to blind you to the reality we all find ourselves in, do not accept the nonsense that cannot be proven, that cannot be shown to be possible at all. Chris Angel is an illusionists, his stunts are not real. We live in reality, not a fantasy world. This is the truth, and this is a truth we all must realize and accept if our species is to have any hope at survival. Nietzsche said it best, "God is dead". We are no longer infants, no longer do we cower at thunder, believing it to be the displeasure of a God. No longer do we startle at the sight of lightning, believing some spirit was angry with us, no longer do we sacrifice our own in an attempt to keep the sun rising... We have moved beyond superstition, back to a place of logic and reason. Let us not waste our efforts, let us not continue to exist in a world filled with dragons and zombies. We should enter reality, our heads held high, our childhood over. There is no time for this self pity, self hate, and self degradation... We are what we are, imperfect and flawed, curious and observant. We can understand the Universe. We can shape our own destiny. We are no longer slaves, to anyone, or anything. We are the God.
