what is the difference if there is a god or not?
a) there is a god: you live your life as best as you can, treat ppl how you want them to treat you
b) there is no god: you live your life as best as you can, treat ppl how you want them to treat you
there’s a bible for *everyone*… and there can be a hymn section in the back with just this little diddy
Do what you do do well boy,
do what you do do well
give your love and all of your heart,
and do what you do do well
keep singing that one in your mind over and over
Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.
the last of the good emperors of Rome was really onto something there….
this is the point i am at, god does not matter, how much more should I have done? ate some crackers? drank some wine? said “Jesus is my lord”? said a prayer to a god that hasn’t shown hide nor hair in millennia? denounce Satan? The only way I could be better is to give away my possessions, but in a selfish world that would leave me with nothing at all and I’d be out on the street begging.
But why do religious ppl need to source their morals from the ether? Religious people scare the FRAK out of me when they say shit like their lives only have meaning because of how they worship their lord, I’m like…
“Fucking what? You can not be a good person without Jesus in your heart? what dar faarkk???… Well you just keep on reading that bible of yours sonny jim because if you don’t, then stay the fuck away from me because you are barely sane as it is!!”
Is this why they don’t want science to keep knocking god down a notch on the fantastic scale by figuring out the universe? Is god/jesus the only thing keeping the entire christian population from running amok?
Imagine that woman, the DARK SIDED screamer, you know the one I’m talking about,
and would the world be fucked up with that thing running around without Jesus keeping that thing in line or what?
but of course they are lying when they say things like this, aren’t they?… Can’t be good without Jesus? what a load of crock, because we all know people can be good people without having a Jesus label pinned to their hearts, or any label for that matter.. I’ve no doubt that dark sided woman would be totally different if she didn’t have a Jesus psychosis…
the religious fruitcake types just can’t admit to themselves that they *can* be good without a god, they don’t have the courage, they fear the unknown…
Fear is the path to the Dark Side
the unknown is exciting, and no, it’s not always safe, but to fear the unknown is to deny human nature of being curious… we should all be calling ourselves “Earthlings”, we should be digging up the asteroid belt right now with our remote controlled robots sending back iron ore, water, and whatever else we find out there.. Star Trek is set in the 2300s, at the rate we are going, it’ll be the 23000s before we get off this rock…
There’s a star man waiting in the sky,
he’d like to come and meet us
but he thinks he’ll blow our minds
