Of Atheism & god…..

Yeah that’s right, it’s not a typo, it was on purpose that I typed the “g” in god in small case. I guess I was never a believer in a higher power, albeit for a short period of time when I was too young to think logically, being bred on the thoughts which were served by the adults of this world. Luckily, better sense prevailed & I slowly became a man of reason(ooh that sounds cool ). I have had arguments with many people including my own mother on this topic, particularly  me abhorring the idea of a greater higher power. I am fortunate that she never forced her beliefs on me. I don’t think many kids are lucky that way. Parents often force feed their kids on the thoughts of religion & god. I have always found the whole approach to parenting fascist, wherein rationale & logic are dismissed disdainfully. My dad who although believes in one, comes from a village but he is one such fellow who absolutely detests superstitions & senseless religious rituals. I guess it rubbed onto me, infact I took a page too many from his book & infact went a step ahead though becoming an Atheist(yeah, that demands “A” in upper case).

You just gotto ask  simple question to the people who believe in the existence of a white bearded fellow up in sky – “Why do you believe in him”(and by the way who decided on the sex of god- who the hell knows his/her sexual orientation), they’ll spring up with the cliched response “Who do you think created the universe” which of course is a rhetorical response. They fail to answer another question of mine though, which follows from the condescending response of their’s ” Who created god then”. The fact is, there is no such thing as god . We however fail to rationally understand this & become slaves to the thought of that imaginary creature since we’ve been bred on ignorance & religious dogmas right since our birth.

I am sure the world would be a lot better place & men would be more at peace if they detached themselves from religion & god. I believe, things would eventually change for the good, as sands of time pass – we’ll surely have a generation of men which will stop making a fool of itself by praying & bowing before an idea which is nothing more than a figment of their imagination. Wish that day comes soon 🙂

One Response to Of Atheism & god…..

    Enforcing one’s religious beliefs is leading to violence that’s the most saddening part.The very idea of religion should be peace and reason. The problem with the world is nobody is ready to update age-old beliefs rules (Sharia Law for example, The word literally means path to the water hole, Which signifies that it should be refreshed team and again, A 8th century law is not relevant today). Anyways here is something I found which made more sense to me.

    This is from Ship of Theseus.
    There are no celestial beings I know of.
    There is no god.
    Neither heaven, nor hell.
    Neither a preserver, nor an owner of this universe.
    Neither a creator nor a destroyer.
    No eternal judge.
    There is only the law of causality.
    I take responsibility for my actions and their consequences.
    The smallest of creatures have a life-force just like mine.
    May I always have such compassion.
    May I never cause any harm to anybody.
    The truth is multi-faceted, and there are many ways to reach it.
    May I find balance in this duality.
    I pray, may my karma of ignorance be shed.
    May my true self be liberated from the cycle of life and death.
    And attain moksha.
