God's little tests - joke is on you

12 July 2013, 16:51

It amazes me how people cannot really think for themselves in this day and age. I laugh internally when folk I know gloat about their own human splendor and intelligence and all the marvels “they” have designed and discovered. Most of us take intellectual credit for things other people actually though of or stumbled across.


Let us take hard core religious folk. They “feel” and “know” god is there close to them due to other people telling them over and over again that “he” “OUR” god is there and he wants you to behave in a certain fashion.


These people will argue day in and day out that morals without their god is impossible and implausible. They quantify people who cannot believe in their own wildly outrageous stories and “Psychotic” because they have “Proof” that their god is near. The proof they have is that they “Feel” him close by I read in apiece of word sosatie yesterday.


I believe in a much more intelligent and other worldly energy who had a role in us being here. I cannot believe life existed due to pure chance as it seems the universe has an as build design to support life. Call it a zoo if you will.


Now my first thought when the religious folk start to talk about life as a “test” is to ponder the reasons this massive energy with big boy pants would want to test us measly humans. Are we being farmed, and a corrupt moral frameworks will cater for a crappy taste once we are cooked and seasoned? Sometimes the picture of the matrix comes to mind where humans are being harvested for energy.


Does he feel the need to ensure we are cool individuals so he will have good company sitting around his heavenly garden drinking tea?


My latest theory is this:


Test who has enough wit and independence to move to a next and more evolved life form once you have proven that you are not a dumb human.


How would he do this?


See who is so greedy and selfish when it comes to life. Promise them never ending life without any signed contract, but only if they opt to live this life as a nitwit. Be something in the line of a christian and believe any troll and fairy story fed to you simply because you cannot see yourself declining on an offer of never ending life.


Swallow that bitter pill of irrational concepts and brutality of a faith designed to highlight the selfish and fearful souls.


Allow those who considered those concepts but decided to trust their common sense and grounded natures in to the cooking pot if we are farmed, to the tea party if we are culled on a basis of company for the big guy with gray beard. I am sure he would like to discuss the marvels and secrets of the universe with open minded creatures who are willing to change their minds about concepts from foolish belief to understanding.


Farm away big boss, we will discuss some of Einstein's theories over a nice warm cup of Joko.
