God - Why I Call It a Fiction
(G on Day 7 of A to Z Challenge 2015).

Everyone created God in its own image and likeliness - Now they are fighting over whose god is the best of all.

Who among these is more real?

Here is a phrase that was carved on the walls of a concentration camp cell during WWII by a Jewish prisoner. If there is a God, He will have to beg my forgiveness.”

If you Google the above phrase and search for image, you will find yourself in a heartbreaking scene. And if that does not break your heart, I am saying it out loud that you are an unkind person.

The two big mistakes were the belief in a sky god -- that there's a man in the sky with 10 things he doesn't want you to do and you'll burn for a long time if you do them -- and private property, which I think is at the core of our failure as a species. That's the source of my indignations, my dissatisfactions, however it comes out on the stage. I feel betrayed by the people I'm part of, these creatures, these magnificent creatures.
- George Carlin, Orange County Register, March 1997

To me God, mythologies, religious dictates are quite similar to Santa Clause, Mermaids, Unicorns and Flying horses. Those who claim to be messiah (messengers) were neurotics talking to an imaginary friend. They never grew up and wrote a book. Now people fight over one book and they are averse to the ideas of other books.

Because hello, for all the power that people vest within Gods - if he were real that world would not have been ugly. Most of the causes of violence are rooted in religion and beliefs.

If you tell me that God is a nice man, and you allow any kind of violence (or abstinence) in the way one leads one's life then I fail to see anything nice your gods. If your god created you and you support violence then you are not a good creation of God.


Author's Note: Sorry to offend all the religious people out there. I know you have high regards for your faith and I have high for mine.

People who claim that religion is an important element of humanity are to be reminded that religion does not make someone good or bad, it is moral that come with the kind of upbringing one receives.

  1. “Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

    But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money!”

    2. Very thought-provoking post! Nicely done. Here's my two-cents...
      The seemingly contradiction of there being a God who allows bad and ugly things in the world is the amazing gift of agency that He gave us. If he forced everyone to be good, we'd have a violence free world, but no joy, being unable to choose for ourselves or understanding the evil to choose the good. " 15 And to bring about his eternal purposes in the end of man, after he had created our first parents, and the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and in fine, all things which are created, it must needs be that there was an opposition; even the forbidden fruit in opposition to the tree of life; the one being sweet and the other bitter.

      16 Wherefore, the Lord God gave unto man that he should act for himself. Wherefore, man could not act for himself save it should be that he was enticed by the one or the other."
