Isn’t it wonderful ?! I mean the idea of god or gods (depends were you were born)! Somebody out there bigger than anything and anybody, that loves you unconditionally provided that you follow some simple rules, somebody or something omnipresent that cares for you, guides you in the right direction and if it so happens that you go in the wrong direction ,will still forgive your mistakes no matter what. An entity that knows what are you doing at all times, what are you eating, what are you drinking, when are you sleeping and with whom , that will punish the bad and will protect the good, that decides when are you going to die and by which means and takes good or bad care of your soul thereafter…for eternity. A deity that nurtures all beings, decides what happens with every living thing from conception till death and controls every aspect of life. The one and only that created everything and everybody , that keeps a haven for those who follow him and a hell for heretics , for the infidels or sinners.
Sure you must be born and brought up in that deity’s congregation or “regime” if you wish for all the above to happen, but who cares as long as we have somebody to blame for every thing that we do, for all that happens , as long as we are enslaved by believes and superstitions. I guess it does not matter that our kids are taught creation rather than evolution , astrology rather then astronomy or alchemy rather than chemistry in schools and educationally, emotionally and mentally we go back in time thousands of years rather than progress and move into the 21st century where Hubble telescope looks deep into space for possible new worlds, where we seek true answers for the origins of everything and were almost all information and knowledge in the world is available at a click of a mouse.
Somebody was contradicting what I just wrote saying that we progress as way back we used to believe in multiple gods, today most of the world believes in only one god (whichever that one may be) and slowly but surely we head to the true number of gods we should believe in -NONE (isn’t that a scary taught for a lot of you out there !??) .
An experiment was once proposed by a great thinker of our time, Chritopher Hitchens. He said that we should create a society that follows the believes of Voltaire , Einstein and others like them. By now we know that religion doesn’t work as well as we hopped and maybe, just maybe…the proposed civilization will do better. At the end we definitely don’t loose nothing if we try.
Just to close my random session of thoughts, the idea of god is as wonderful as sleeping at the edge of an erupting volcano while lava and ash are blown up in the air and fall like burning cannon balls everywhere . While this might be great for some mad scientists and for some suicidal and depresses sociopaths who just got bitten by the world recession, I bet the rest of the world will try a different place to take their afternoon beauty nap.
The photos don’t have much to do with the subject above ( i guess in a strange way they just might…)…but i still hope you will enjoy them. Your comments are more than welcomed.
