Religion is Bullshit

Guy with a Pen ~

In the beginning was God. All else was nothing. God saw that the Earth was empty and so he said "Let there be light!". Behold, for the Earth became filled with sunlight. God then created the land, sea and air. God created the animals we eat, the plants, the trees and the humans. Or did he?

What is religion? What is mythology? What is so different between these two things? What is a God? What is a devil? What is a death God? What is a false prophet? What is this thing called 'The Path of God'?

Fact is, religion is bullshit. Its one of the biggest bullshit the world has ever known. In fact, religion has managed to convince millions and millions of people around the world to believe that there is an 'Almighty One' who lives high above us. He has the power to exterminate all mankind, he can do all sorts of fancy magic tricks that is beyond the imagination of mankind in a matter of nanoseconds, he has a list of things he does not want you to do and above all, he loves you. He loves you and he demands you to worship him in your entire lifetime. You see, this is how the Roman Empire became a huge success(sort of) in the first place. Because there was this thing called religion, nobody dared to stage an uprising since God forbade it. They all thought that the corrupt Roman leaders would have to answer to God in the future and this allowed those corrupt assholes to become fatter and richer while feeding off the poor. In fact, religion has been used as a tool to boost the power and monarch of kings and queens for thousands of years already. And let's face it; this is exactly why religion was created in the first place. Meanwhile in the Middle East that existed in the previous generation, the Egyptians and Libyans and the other ME countries never dared to rebel against their corrupt government until now because of this thing called religion! Don't forget, these governments have already claimed to have the blessing of Allah and Allah forbids uprisings according to the Quran. In fact, religion nullifies your rights. And it doesn't end here, kids.

All religions clearly state that God has every right to do what he wants because everything he does has a reason behind it. It doesn't matter if it's the Bible or the Quran or even the Veda. They're all the same in this particular aspect. And guess what? You're not allowed to question their actions. You're not even allowed to doubt their intentions. You're expected to just have complete faith in God and continue kissing his ass. And if you stop believing in him, he'll get pissed and send you to the fires of hell to suffer and live with Satan. Now, if you're going to call me an immoral kid, then blow me, you fools. You know not of what you speak of.

I am seriously sick and tired of the amount of idiots who label me as 'immoral' when they themselves are not making any amount of effort to stick to their religious laws. I am sick and tired of the assholes who keep telling me that I should not associate myself with homos. In fact, religious assholes have actually caused a lot of suicide cases from all over the world. Something is seriously fucked up here. War, disease, poverty, corruption; its all over the god damn world and God is doing nothing about it at all! This kind of bullshit should never, ever be in the resume of an almighty being. Either he doesn't exist or he, for some reason, just doesn't give a shit about anything that is happening down here at all.

If you flip back the pages of history, you'll also realize that today's religions are VERY similar to the religions of the past. Take Norse mythology for example. Same shit, different toilet. You have Asgard, Alfheim and Muspell as the heavens, Midgard, Vanaheim and Jotunheim as the Earth and Svartalfheim, Hel and Niflheim as hell. Oh, and this is where the line 'Go to hell' originated from. All of the Norse Gods(especially the Aesir) demanded those on Earth to worship them. And if they didn't they would be sent down to the fires of Hel to endure an eternal suffering. But wait, they loved Midgard and all of them have their own reasons for everything they do. If that is the case, then the binding of Loki and Fenrir was the fault of the Norse Gods as they could have killed him and prevented Ragnarok. But noooooo. Because of their 'holy' egos which prevented them from dirtying their hands with Loki's blood, they kept Loki imprisoned in a cave and put a huge ass venomous serpent above him to torture him. Oh wait, before that, Odin had already suspected that Loki would be the one who betrayed the Aesir and become the catalyst of Ragnarok. But then, he didn't do shit even if Loki was the only possibility. In the end, Odin gets nommed by one of Loki's kids, Fenrir. And what of Greek mythology? Its pretty much the same shit in a different toilet so I'm not going to go into the details. Well maybe with more names like Uranus(the sky), not to mention the fact that heaven has no name at all but for some reason, the Abyss(or hell) is known as Tartarus. Egyptian mythology is not worth mentioning so I'm not even going to go there. Yes, it is so friggin' boring to the point where my eyes would bleed if my History textbook were to go into the details of Set and Amun-Ra.

In the Christian Bible, Jehovah himself has caused a lot of deaths, not to mention the fact that the Christian God Jehovah violates his own system of law when he damns his creations into eternal suffering in hell for small sins like theft. Has he ever considered the fact that some people steal because they need to steal? Has he ever considered the fact that some people steal in order to expose the truth? In fact, if there is really a God up there, then strike me right here, right now before I publish this post for I have caused my mother to file for a divorce, not to mention the fact that I have gone against my father. The Bible even tells me to pay him respect. Tell me, why should I respect a selfish person who has committed 18 consecutive years of domestic violence?

But enough about myself. Let us look at the many murders Jehovah and his followers have committed.
And at midnight the LORD killed all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn son of the captive in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed. Pharaoh and his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died. (Exodus 12:29-30 NLT)

Remember Samson the arsonist who murdered 30 times? The 'lord' saved him and allowed him to kill 1000 more men as proven in this verse.

When he reached Lehi, and the Philistines came shouting to meet him, the spirit of the Lord came upon him: the ropes around his arms become as flax that is consumed by fire and the bonds melted away from his hands. Near him was the fresh jawbone of an ass; he reached out, grasped it, and with it killed a thousand men. (Judges 15:14-15 NAB)

Oh, and remember Noah's Ark? Yes, everyone was evil except for Noah himself. So why not purify their souls instead of HI GUYS LET'S FLOOD THE ENTIRE GOD DAMN WORLD LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. I don't think I even need to go into the details here. So, let's move on to the next verse.
(Moses) stood at the entrance to the camp and shouted, "All of you who are on the LORD's side, come over here and join me." And all the Levites came. He told them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Strap on your swords! Go back and forth from one end of the camp to the other, killing even your brothers, friends, and neighbors." The Levites obeyed Moses, and about three thousand people died that day. Then Moses told the Levites, "Today you have been ordained for the service of the LORD, for you obeyed him even though it meant killing your own sons and brothers. Because of this, he will now give you a great blessing." (Exodus 32:26-29 NLT)

"Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge! Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you," says the LORD. "Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction". (Jeremiah 50:21-22 NLT)

I am seriously sick and tired of the amount of idiots who label me as 'immoral' when they themselves are not making any amount of effort to stick to their religious laws.Who is this jackass to judge others when he himself has committed so many crimes against his own system of law in the past? And wow, mass murder. Nazi-style much, Jehovah? Hitler and you were certainly made for each other.

Then, with Micah's idols and his priest, the men of Dan came to the town of Laish, whose people were peaceful and secure. They attacked and killed all the people and burned the town to the ground. There was no one to rescue the residents of the town, for they lived a great distance from Sidon and had no allies nearby. This happened in the valley near Beth-rehob.Then the people of the tribe of Dan rebuilt the town and lived there. They renamed the town Dan after their ancestor, Israel's son, but it had originally been called Laish. (Judges 18:27-29 NLT)
God approves this in verse 6.
Meanwhile, the LORD instructed one of the group of prophets to say to another man, "Strike me!" But the man refused to strike the prophet. Then the prophet told him, "Because you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, a lion will kill you as soon as you leave me." And sure enough, when he had gone, a lion attacked and killed him. (1 Kings 20:35-36 NLT)

God also orders Christians to kill nonbelievers and those who are of other religions.

Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)
They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

“And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other."-- I Kings 3:24-25)

It gets better.
Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him." (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

So why don't we just nuke the entire world? And also, note this particular line

"doing what is pleasing to him."

So, you tell me about this free will you keep preaching to me. And please do not at this rate, call this negative thinking for I tell you now, positive thinking actually means brainwashing yourself and creating an illusion for yourself in order to deceive yourself. And if you're going to tell me that the old testament is invalid, then stop using the Old Testament in churches. In fact, claiming that the Old Testament is invalid is basically claiming that the Christian God is a lie. You might as well take out the O.T. from the Bible then.

And on the subject of free will,

“Let not yours be the outward adorning of braiding of hair, decoration of gold, and wearing of fine clothing”-- 1 Peter 3 :3)
“Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak”-- 1 Corinthians 14:34)

By the way, did you know that Satan is actually Jehovah's creation and mistake?
“I form the light and create darkness. I make peace and create evil. I the lord do all these things”-- Isaiah 45:7)

God also encourages discrimination!

"Don’t associate with non-Christians. Don’t receive them into your house or even exchange greeting with them."-- 2 John 1:10)
"Shun those who disagree with your religious views."-- Romans 16:17)
"Paul, knowing that their faith would crumble if subjected to free and critical inquiry, tells his followers to avoid philosophy."-- Colossians 2:8)

So, if there really is a God standing up there watching every single movement in our lives, then it would be more prudent for us to oppose him like mankind has opposed tyrants in the past.
