Religion is bullshit now fuck off

throwing-religious-symbols-in-rubish-bin

Alright world, you asked for it now I’m delivering. I am so tired of the bullshit fighting and arguing over which version of bullshit is the correct bullshit. I am so tired of seeing assholes try and guilt each other for an AMEN so they can feel like they’re better people. So tired of the lunacy of people trying to shove their god down everyone else’s throats. So allow me to attempt as briefly as possible to explain why you’re beliefs make you a mindless fool.

Here in the US, the dominant religious disease is Christianity. The Christians clutch their little bibles and guns and hate the Muslims and everyone who disagrees with their little books and they all think they’re going to be rewarded with some magical wonderland in the sky after they die. So the primary target of this post is Christianity, but most of this post also applies to any other monotheistic religion.

For starters, lets talk about Origins.

The Canaanites had a broad pantheon of deities they believed in. Many pagan cultures had various cults that worshiped one deity more exclusively, acknowledging that the other gods existed but primarily giving reverence to only one. This is Henotheism, and that is where our story begins. A henotheistic religion worshiping one of the Canaanite Divine Warrior Gods Yahweh. As time moved along, this morphed into a monotheistic religion, and as more time went on this monotheistic religion (I assume to get their people to fight harder against their enemies who believed differently) began labeling other religions as evil. Interestingly enough, you can find evidence of this even within that little book in the first commandment where it says “Worship no other gods before me”. It never says there are no other gods, just not to worship them. Monotheism originates by people wanting to gain power and influence by manipulating the beliefs of the masses. If your enemy is an evil monster it’s a whole lot easier to rationalize killing them than it is if it’s just so your leaders can gain more wealth and territory.

Contradictions

It would take me pages and pages and pages to point out every contradiction in the old testament and the bible. So instead I will point out that the very first thing in the bible is immediately contradicted by the very second thing in the bible. Genesis 1 and 2 give a completely different order of events and creation process. If the very first two things in a book contradict each other, then how in the hell can it be the immutable truth of divinity?

Physical impossibilities

Probably one of the easiest things to point out as a physical impossibility is the story of Noah’s Ark. Think of how big a zoo is, lets say the Atlanta Zoo. It has to have room for all of the animals, room for all of their food, staff to regularly feed and care for the animals, and it doesn’t have anywhere close to 2 of every kind of animal species. Now imagine this zoo, somehow floating in an ocean holding enough food for all of those animals for more than a month, and somehow the tending and feeding of these animals being done by just a handful of people. Imagine just how mindbogglingly big a boat would have to be to carry 2 each of millions upon millions of animal species! Plus, considering the number of animals that hadn’t been discovered yet from continents never previously visited by anyone from where Noah was at, where the hell did they get 2 of each from? Then consider that after the floods they would have had to travel the world just to redistribute those animals to the continents they are currently at. An undertaking like this would be next to impossible with current technology, and some guy did it with wood? Even with modern technology, we’d have to settle for carrying genetic material of each animal and then who knows how long it would take us to clone and redistribute all of the local wildlife to it’s habitat once the destruction was over? How can this story represent an immutable fact from divinity?

Plagiarism

Now lets talk about how much of the bible and old testament were ripped off from much older polytheistic religions. Since we used noahs ark last time, lets do it again. The story of a devastating worldwide flood came way before the monotheistic version. For example, the epic of gilgamesh which predates it. Massive flood, guy surviving on a boat full of animals, the most significant difference is that there is more than one deity and the names and places are different. Now some may try and say these similarities confirm the bible’s validity, that the events it speaks of did happen, but let me explain. You get a dozen accounts of a similar event, each with it’s own interpretations and guesses of why and how, and the only thing you can really assume is that something like it may have happened. Was there a worldwide flooding event? Probably. Does it mean the explanation by any culture in any religious textbook is valid? NO! Look through the bible and look at just how many of the stories and lessons in it are just adaptations of old Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman myths changed up to support monotheism.

Lets sum it up

The truth of the matter is simple, we as humans have no idea where the fuck life, the universe, or anything else came from. It could be random, we could be in a simulation of some advanced species, we could have been genetically engineered by aliens to mine precious metals, there could be one or several gods controlling everything, no one fucking knows and the possibilities are endless. A person desperate enough can rationalize just about any belief, and really wouldn’t be more right or wrong than any other beliefs. That is why they are beliefs, not facts, and people need to accept that we have no fucking idea and just try to be decent fucking people instead of trying to make everyone else our own version of decent fucking people.

PS

If you have read this and you are still a monotheist you have officially changed your classification from ignorant to willfully ignorant. This means that there is no reasoning with you, no validity to anything you say afterward, and hope for you is lost until you find yourself having the will to accept your ignorance. Ignorance is a natural state because no one can really know all of the answers. Willful ignorance is a shameful state, where you choose to accept lies rather than admit ignorance. It is a sign of fear mixed with arrogance. For the record, I am not an atheist but my beliefs are my own. I don’t wish to tell anyone else who or what to believe, or whether to believe anything at all, but I do wish to tell people that if you think your beliefs are somehow more valid than anyone else’s then you are lying to yourself.
