Changepoint: Leaving atheism for a nobel religion

12 April 2013, 12:00
I read this and asked Mike for permission to post this on News24 as I thought it would go down well. Changepoint: Leaving atheism for a noble religion Posted on 2013/04/10 by Mike

Yes you got the point. I am dropping my atheistic ideas (note that I didn’t say atheistic belief as atheism is not a religion or a belief system, it is the lack of those) after having a long debate with many theists who actually made me think a lot and convinced me.

You know, I truely believe that science does not answer all questions, especially those related to values and morality. Science so far does not explain how the universe and all the matter there is came to being, much less how life came into being… these are facts, so far science does not have answers to. All they have are just theories and many of them keep changing. Scientists keep changing their minds, they never stick to one idea, contrary to God who’s laws are universal and unshakable.

Science does not tell you were did all the matter come from neither how nor why. All they have is just some incomplete theories.The second law of thermodynamics states that the entropy of the universe is always increasing, where entropy is a measure of chaos and disorder, so how come all this universe came to be so neatly organized if chaos is increasing, this is a contradiction to the holy grail of the second law of thermodynamics in physics. What a joke is science right?

Ok then, to hell with atheism and my inconsistent ideas… I am now leaving atheism… so let me see the alternatives…

Judaism: An old guy in the sky that is bloodthirsty who prefers a specific human race and picks a place already inhabited by other people to let his preferred people live. This dude kills kids and prefers the skin on the male penis to be removed and he hates when people work on a very specific day otherwise he would kill you or punish you later, especially when you die. This dude is an infanticide who doesn’t care about babies as much as he cares about killing animals and offering their blood to him as a holocaust… this guy is the creator of everything but he never tells you how and why did he create things neither how do they work and why.

Ok so this God is discarded… he doesn’t make sense, he doesn’t tell you how the universe was born (except for an abra kadabra thing and everything was created) he doesn’t tell why there are diseases and how to create vaccines and medicines for the human well being. He never explained the laws of nature and never created a car, plane, phone, fridge, CT scan devices for hospitals, electronic equipment etc. He just created stuff without telling us why and how and ever since he has been invisible and never appeared in public lately in front of more than one person. Yep this God is definitely discarded…

Christianity: An enhancement of the figure of God, or better known as God v 2.0 with a huge service pack improvements and new features. God the same dude of the old testament of the Jews, loved us so much that he sent his own son (yea God was married to no one and of course he had a male son as females are a disgrace and do not count) so to make it more logical this God impregnated a virgin Jewish woman and gave birth to himself… oh sorry that is confusing, I mean gave birth to his son, which is the same thing as God… huh? (so the above statement is not a confusion???) And this son performed miracles like raising the dead and turning water (H2O) into a very complex molecules of drink (wine) based on alcohol (contains Carbon C that does not exist in H2O) so basically a nuclear reaction without radiation and no one was killed, on the contrary they liked the wine. And once this dude has been followed by some 5000 other people and when it was time to eat, then 5 fish and 3 bread (or was it the other way round? who cares!) were sufficient for 5000 people (maybe they were talking about 5000 ant-sized humans). So this son of God which is actually God but not exactly God because it was the holy spirit (huh? a third one???) was killed on a stick and died and burried for three days (Friday evening, all Saturday, and Sunday morning… if mathematics is not an opinion, then these are less than 2 days. Christians cannot count!) this dude was risen from the death. He walked the earth for 40 days and appeared in many places and finally he or his father that is himself (again huh?) decided to lift him up to heavens and since then nobody saw him but he watches us everyday even when you go to the toilet or when you make love or masturbate and he can convict you for thought crimes.

Again this dude never explained how the universe was created except for a magical abra kadabra and he never tells you how to build a plane or a medical equipment or how to heal a sick person except for something called wishful thinking (prayers). So I guess I will discard this dude…

What else do we have? Islam of course:
A dude in the sky who is eternal that sent his final thoughts to an illiterate guy in a cave whom nobody ever saw in Arabic because God only speaks Arabic and he is a Muslim as well. This guy prefers to see women covered with black tents and he doesn’t like when anybody says something about his illiterate dude whom he gave a magical book only in Arabic. Some people who follow this dude like to wear an explosive belt and explode themselves killing others, or fly airplanes into buildings to prove their point and God is happy about them. Those whom God likes he put in a special place called Heaven where they have eternal erection and can fuck up to 70 virgins who do not lose their virginity after you fuck. Also followers of this dude are allowed to fuck up to 3 human females and can discard them from marriage by saying one single word (Talaak). If you make a mistake and say Talaak three times to your wife and then you thought you made a mistake and want her back then you can’t! To get back your ex-wife after the magical 3-talaak she has to get married to another guy AND he has to fuck her and then say the magical word to her and then you can get her back otherwise you can’t get her back.

Well I guess I want to discard this God as well, although I like the idea of eternal erection and having 70 chicks to make love with and none can say I have a headache!

So what alternatives do I have? Let me see… should I follow one of the above gods or shall I trust something that doesn’t give us all the answers but at least it never claimed them nor obliges you to believe in them and creates things that work and bring well being to humans and doesn’t care if you insult it or eat pork or work on Sabbath or wear funny clothes or imprison females inside black hot tents?

I made my choice for the least nonsense of the above. I trust science and I don’t believe in God… what is your choice?

P.S. The above discussion on Thermodynamics is errant as it is what non-physicists use to argue about it without knowing anything about it
