You know, it has always perplexed me as to why so many humans think that God is a just creature. Many religious people seem to think that his set of rules and morals are inherently "good", simply because he's God. They even think that he can piss all over us, and it would make it okay, once again because he's God (the creator of everything). However, I completely disagree. God may tell us his definition of what is right and wrong, but I think what God has to say is just, like, his opinion, man.
So, it got me thinking. If things like homosexuality and murder are considered a sin. Why does God allow for his creations to be born as homosexuals or mentally ill serial killers? And completely out of their own will, I might add. Really, It seems a lot like a form of mental torture. You know you're gay or lust for blood, but you can't actually commit the acts because you might have to face the wrath of God. To me it seems like God has these people completely cornered, so he's basically raping them.
If such a perfect entity can create something so primitive, it has purposely done so. This universe is a cold and barbaric place. Conflict is the norm, and needless to say, you all know what kind of things go down between the organisms on this planet. To make matters even worse, our God apparently does not intervene at all. The way I see it is that we are nothing more than his test subjects. There's a big reinforced glass in between us and God, but only God can see through the glass. We are put through all sorts of horrible tests. Every now and then someone may luck out, but how many don't? How many face the prospect of imminent doom? I would say too many. And what does God do? He just watches. He kind of just set up a gladiator match and he's having himself a good time.
So why do so many worship this creature? I'll tell you why. It's not completely out of respect, it's out of fear. If God is real, and what the bible says is true. He has the power to put us through an eternity of hell - or worse. Why defy something with the power to do so? It's better to believe that God is a lovely little thing that can do no wrong, than it is to think otherwise of God. Even if it means to completely disregard the fallacies. Having read the Bible and Qur'an, as well as experienced this world, I can't say I am too motivated to worship a god as depicted by either religion.
So, what's your reason for not wanting to worship this dude?
