So I was reading this story and it got me really upset. Hence the entry below.
It always amazes me how people who say they believe in God take scripture or religious law over reality. Even when proven wrong. They would rather believe a book written by men who “supposedly” had things revealed to them (without any proof of course) then the reality of the world around them. If you ask me, this is like slapping God in the face.
Here God creates this universe with natural laws like gravity, the speed of light, the Fibonacci sequence and the fact that incest produces retarded kids. Hello! God’s absolute laws are written into the universe itself, not a fucking book. Every religious law can be debated. Including the ten commandments given certain situations.
We’re talking about the creator of the universe here. A being that created a perfect system. Yet instead of looking at the reality of the world around you, studying it and defining it by what it really is, you instead start with an archaic book as your basis for all truth and attempt to mold the world around what that book says.
When that book contradicts the reality of the world God actually created, you redefine what that book says. You go back and say “well actually it’s supposed to mean this” or “that was only relevant in the time it was written, not today.” Come on.
You don’t give God the credit deserved. The universe itself is a testament to its will? Facts and concrete reality. Something that does in fact stand the test of time. If the sky is blue today then the sky is fucking blue and no one in their right mind, no matter what their religious (or nonreligious) point of view is going to be able to debate that.
That is truth..
This is why a ascribe myself a deist rather than any revealed religion. Because yes I do believe in a God. Even if my atheist friends and contemporaries may cringe at that fact about me. But sometimes I think they’re closer to understanding the true nature of God more than many religious people.
