God punishes us for his decisions, are you happy with this?

I have heard on many occasions people state that God has created us inferior. Fine. I’m assuming that if God was to exist, that would indeed be the case. We still have a long way to go before unlocking many mysteries of the universe, many natural phenomena on our own planet still leave us scratching our heads.

There are additionally some believers, depressingly, that accept the idea that God created us inferior and we should pay the price for not believing in him. Punishment despite the lack of evidence (which is apparently intentional) and despite the inevitable confusion and violence this creates between religions as a result.

A typical quote goes like this:

‘God lives outside of the realms that we understand, free of time and space. We cannot comprehend such a being as we do not have access to the conditions in which God lives.’

In that case, how the hell do you come to the conclusion he exists?!

If we cannot comprehend God, then we cannot come to the conclusion he exists. A lack of evidence should not point to the idea that something exists, and created us to not understand. If you use this argument, you must accept the argument from countless other religions stating the same thing. Evidence does not point to one religion considerably more that any other with this logic. My belief in the magic monkey now has as much credibility as any other.

As I have said before, God would be a terrible businessman. If a business was to expect people to find the brand or product instead of advertising and putting a voice out there, the business would fail. This is the exact trend we are seeing with religion, Christianity at least. I am expected to find God? I do not need to. If believing in him is so important, I’m sure he has the capabilities to find me. None of this ‘God had already spoken to you/you have already found God’ bullshit… Actual definitive, conclusive communication.

Similar to other paranormal phenomena, isn’t it funny how there is never any mass observations or true recorded footage of anything spiritual? There is one huge reason why many are skeptical, the reason being that for millennia there has not been any conclusive proof(s). If you feel God has spoken to you, you are lying to yourself, or extremely susceptible to accepting something to be true that simply isn’t. I have talked of the simple images and patterns that emerge on a daily basis that some may be lead to believe are spiritual experiences, but burnt toast? A metal cross in amongst thousands of tons of debris? Come on now, I really do hope that isn’t the work of an intelligent designer.

I’m sure I had seen a Pokemon today. The size of a cat, it jumped into the bushes before my eyes could adjust to the blur. I loved Pokemon as a child, it was indeed the size of a Pokemon… Yes, I’m pretty sure it was a Pokemon.

Wouldn’t that be a nice thought?!

It would be, but that doesn’t mean I should convince myself that it was what I desire it to be. It is not healthy. I would rather be disappointed by the truth than satisfied with a lie. There are so many amazing truths out there that we do not have to resort to kidding ourselves. If you do like to do so, fine, but as this is a personal preference please do not use it in a debate with genuine truth seekers.

    This is a valid point. Has anyone been able to answer it with anything reasonable?

  • I hope you get one too. I mean, i can give you the party line but i have no actual sufficient response and it deserves one.

    • I think it’s a very valid point to address, I would be very interested in hearing the opposing view but I think it would be very difficult to criticise. If you have one I am all ears!

      • Like I said I could give you the party line. Or tell you something about how his ways of making himself less obvious are to preserve our free will or something like that. But it doesn’t feel very satisfying to me as an answer so I doubt it would to you either. If I ever figure that particular facet of God out I’ll let you know.

      • If it doesn’t feel satisfying, you can look elsewhere! That is what I love about a more scientific point of view, it gives you more freedom.

        I can believe something to the contrary if it sounds more reasonable, instead of thinking ‘I’m going to stick with this, I’m just going to wait a little bit until something fits’ 🙂

    that is just awesome 🙂
