Not Very Nice: BELIEF

If it turns out that there is a God, I don’t think that he’s evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that basically he’s an underachiever.

At work, someone said the word of “My God! A______! ” That somebody happened to be T______ and then N___ turned around after I answered and half-apologized saying that I am an atheist. She said, after learning the definition, “Well, that’s not very nice.” Not really nice being a person who doesn’t believe in a god, how one must ask, is that not very nice? Does she know about a god’s beliefs and how to destroy a religion merely by stopping in terms of belief as in the works of a fiction piece? Does she know anything about what a religion is for a start? Possibly not knowing how every religion covers things up in one point (or many) in time and history.

  1. Every religion starts in blood.
  2. The religions we know of today rip off others’ holidays.
  3. They’ll soon start a fight like Ravers and Rivet heads in a club over something trivial.
  4. They tend to push each others’ beliefs into the faces of others and advocate the same rubbish of “You’ll go to Hell”, etcetera.
  5. They try to hide the truth of science with their own perverse storybook covered with more blood and sugar than anyone can imagine.
  6. These religions also, bad enough, lower women in the way that makes them submissive to their husbands and encourages it for future generations, putting the whole utopian ideal of equality out of the window even in modern times.
  7. It discourages something that is natural to all beings: sex.

Shocking isn’t it? Most people who practice a religion don’t realize this because it’s hidden, they’ll have to pry such answers out by themselves which is challenging since everyone who is born into the world gets sorted into a religion from Day One, and plus no one is asking, “Why are you a (insert whether you are a Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness or Jewish or a Scientologist or Pastafarian here)?” Most of them put the pros than cons because of the fear of thinking different about whether a religion will fade or if the world is coming to an end. The funny thing I noticed is that every time someone is up at an award, they always thank their gods and thank the real people later and they say the word “God” just to keep their sanity in check instead of doing something more rational, like a psychologist or a therapist. The mind boggles. I’d like to see a number of gods talk to me about this so that I could prove they exist instead of being something that people make up like Pink Elephants when they go through substance abuse.

  1. Hi,
    Caught your post on the tag and thought it was interesting. Not sure why you were told that it wasn’t nice to be an atheist. I do believe people just speak sometimes and don’t think.
    Anyways I am a believer in Christ and hope you don’t mind a comment from my prospective. History is people and people aren’t my God. There are tons of people that are Americans that I wouldn’t link myself too just because they are Americans. Religion and belief are different as people are sinful (in my belief).
    Also, I can only say that my belief is like a chair. I sit on it and can’t always explain why it works just know that it does.
    Hope you don’t mind my comments.
    Have a terrific evening!

    LOVE your post. I hope you’ll check out my site http://doubtingthomas426.wordpress.com/ as I think you’ll find it right up your alley. I’ve categorized all my posts on the left. Take a few minutes to read through a few. Leave a comment if you like. I’m going to check out some of your other posts now. Take Care.

  2. To realworldmartha/Debbie: I was told because someone asked what the word “atheist” meant. Most people confuse Atheists with Nihilists.

    doubtingthomas426: That’s a lot of posts on your blog for one archive, just started blogging have we? Most of my stuff started as political and religious rants.

  3. The problem with the majority who believe in a religion is that they are afraid to change. Which religion is the most notorious for “promoting” homophobia? All religions are against homosexuality, but perhaps Christians are best know for this. It’s the 21st century, but religions can’t seem to accept that and a follow the ways they did when the religion had first been created. If people are so confident in religion, any parent should be able to tell their child to go out into the outside world and come back with the faith that the parent follows, on the kid’s own decision. That’s how kids should be taught religion, not by saying they’ll go to Hell if they don’t something the way the religion wants.

    There are a select few who should represent the TRUE way religions should be followed, with open minds and not being afraid to change.

  4. Like I said in the past; a religion is a cult and a cult is a religion. Because both are similar in so many ways.

  5. Me again…
    So what about the help for the homeless, poor, orphaned, elderly? Do you think the world would be the same without the compassion from the church.

  6. That would more based on the living being’s need to survive, as per the survival mechanisms we all take for granted.
