Why religion fails to convince so many people around the world, is because a god was created using our own reality as reference point.

Who says there isn’t a group of people in another solar system that have a far more advanced intelligence level than we have and they can create solar systems all day long and decide what happens in them and why?

Why does man on our earth need to worship something that he has never seen or isn’t present here? Why would any intelligent entity that had created all of us 6 Billion currently living care if we have food to eat today or if we sinned according to laws created by biblical characters?

Using our own frame of reference, let us assume that on some far away planet there are scientists in a big building and manufacturing plant and they manufacture solar systems that we perceive as an expanding universe. Please explain to me why we should worship them in a religious sense?

None of us living understand the origins of our existence or the ever expansion of the universe, so it is totally misguided to create deities in our absence of knowledge.

Religion is a tool for people with a low self esteem to “create” a role model for themselves. They don’t have the ability to write their own rules in life. This fact is holding back civilisation because far too many people spend their time worshipping imaginary things instead of advancing themselves and in the process bettering their own lives.
