The Christian God

How can one respect, much less worship, an entity who acts in ways that do not even compare to the imperfect ideals of the highest development of an ordinary human, who does not act in ways that are even up to the relatively primitive standards of the Constitution or international laws?

Your god is a vile slavemaster who has little concern for lesser beings. Your god, who has committed some of the most despicable acts of terrorism and violence. Don’t believe me? Go back to your buy-bull. Your god, who punishes billions for the mistakes of two ignorant naked slaves who lacked the knowledge of good and evil.. Your god, who demands sacrifice and who threatens those who will not kneel with punishment and damnation.

Your god, who demands fear and blind obedience. Your god, who in all his supposedly infinite wisdom and power cannot and does not attempt to assist mankind in uprooting suffering after all their faith, devotion, and prayers.

God/Yahweh/ Jehovah has never existed and is a manufactured construct that humanity has imposed upon the Cosmos in a vain attempt to understand the Cosmos and themselves.

russell“Science can teach us, and I think our own hearts can teach us, no longer to look around for imaginary supports, no longer to invent allies in the sky, but rather to look to our own efforts here below to make this world a fit place to live in, instead of the sort of place that churches in all these centuries have made it.” — Bertrand Russell
