“I am absolutely convinced that, the main source of hatred in the world is religion” – Christopher Hitchens
Infectious religion : Are you a sheep?
You didn’t choose to be a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or Jew but you are forced to follow one religion because your family and community that you grew up is practicing a particular religion. You are forced to learn more about one religion while all other religions are completely ignored. You get isolated into one religious view and you get stuck there. You believe strongly on what you have been spoon fed and you follow rest of your life believing you are on the right boat and you are going to heaven. This is extremely infectious and this is like flock of mindless sheep moving rubbing each other. They don’t know where they are going, they don’t know why they are going, they don’t want to know and they don’t want to think. They just follow one another. These are sheeples, people who lost their ability to think.
Humans – We are same
Religions are passed from ancestors and no one ever bothered to think again. As an Intelligent being on planet earth; I am not able to believe like the most. I don’t want to look through the same old glasses invented in the bronze age like everyone around me. I have my own views and conclusions on religions and Gods. Religions emerged into a culture. It became an insane weapon to fight for power. If you think about it for a while, you really know deep down, there is nothing spectacular being in a religion. You believe in your God and rest believe in their Gods. But the fact is that we all are one. We all are humans. We came from the same place wherever it is. We should always believe in Human race than in any freaking religions or Gods.
Think out of the box :
Why can’t you just think out of the box and see everyone as same. This world is not a world of hatred and evil. The good earth is beautiful, positive and vibrant. God – could be an ingredient which helped in shaping the universe; Something that evolved into a conscious world may be a world beyond that. I don’t believe in a God who listen to prayers. I don’t believe in God as a person or something that we can perceive through our senses. I don’t believe in a god who has human behaviour and qualities. Some monotheistic religions teach God look like humans, God is Happy, God thinks, gets angry, put you in Hell, Hates you when you do wrong. God has tremendous mood swings. That sounds stupid to me. I know, I have only limited knowledge and consciousness to understand the universe and beyond. You can be a God within you. Am not Atheist, Its just my definition for God is extremely different.
I am not an “atheist” by definition, rather I would say I am against religious views. I don’t believe, that one or more conscious beings exist somewhere in cosmos, or in so called “heaven” is controlling and spectating our lives in this puny insignificant planet earth or any other part of this universe/multiverse. It is logically incorrect to refer God as it, him, or her, or anything, since God never existed nor will exist in any form or size/shape/gender/color. I don’t believe that God listens to anyones prayer nor going to do miracles in our lives. Psychologically, prayer is just a confident booster for our subconscious, it helps us to get tasks done. As far as I am a conscious being, I contemplate, God itself is the universe and is callous, self-sufficient and evolving and we all are part of it, i am bit agnostic since I know, our knowledge and senses are very limited in galactic scale. But eventually, science and time will unveil all the unanswered questions.
When I said I am “against religion”, It does not mean, I will go out there and fight with religious people. I have no intentions to hurt them. I would love to see if they think for themselves, do some research, learn science, philosophy, psychology and history.
Note: My definition for “God” has nothing to do with any religious views which has ever existed or going to exist in next millennia. This is my personal opinion. This post never intend to hurt any religious views or a group.
