Why Jesus’ sacrifice makes no sense.

Why Jesus’ sacrifice makes no sense.

Let me start off by saying that Jesus knew he was going to be betrayed by Judas, be denied three times by Peter, be nailed to a cross, and rise three days later and ascend into Heaven.

But. The question I ask is, why?

I know he wanted to, “save mankind from his father’s wrath by dying for your sin.” But again, why?

This God doesn’t strike to me as an all loving, all merciful, and all powerful because he has doomed mankind with sin because some girl ate a fruit. That alone from the beginning was reason enough for me to stray from a God, if he did exist.

“I think I’ll go create a man and a woman. Then put a tree with fruit in the Garden. Then tell them not to eat it.” Of course, some Christians tells me this was a test. He knows they will eat the fruit.
“And then while they eat it, I will get really angry and doom mankind. Yep. That’ll be a perfect way for things to go.”

But he didn’t know Adam and Eve ate the fruit, or Satan tempted them. Christians tells me he does know because he is all knowing. Sounds like he wanted mankind to sin so he can get pissed off.

“Son. Eat the chocolate bar so I can punish you.”

This is contradiction in on itself. This is Completely screwed up.

Now back to the point, Jesus, is a son of God, or God himself, or just man. I don’t know which ones the Christians believes about Jesus.

Jesus didn’t remain dead, he rises back to life. So where was the sacrifice? He no longer died, he just simply allows people to kill him and rises three days later.

Also, I might add that Jesus wasn’t arrested and killed because the Jews wanted him dead, Jesus wanted them to do it. Jews, if this were true, are blameless. And yet people call the Jews Christ killers. Jesus committed suicide. He committed suicide because he wanted to die. He knew he was going to die AND is willing to allow this.

Think for the minute why he allows the Romans to crucify him. The Jews calls him a blasphemer, because Jesus says he was the son of God. People said he can heal the sick, raise the dead. But when asked, Jesus refuses. Why? Why die for people who didn’t ask for it?

Why not simply forgive, and all be fine?

And since he “died for our sins,” people today are still sinning and people are prosecuting them or getting all, “That’s a bad thing, sin, oh evil thing, nasty, kill the …” you know what I mean? So even when jesus dies for our sin, people acts as though this story didn’t Happen. Hmmm.

If Jesus dies for your sin, then why are we making a big deal about people “sinning?” It’s over with, done, the end. But people still persistently acts the same way after his death. So much for, “Dying for our sins.” It must mean nothing then.

not quite done yet.

Secular law and Order Vs God’s law and order

In secular world, anything you do that breaks a law, you get punished for it. Forgiveness does not factor into it because you will be punished regardless as you should be. Simply pleading forgiveness and expecting to walk away free and not punished would simply mean people can break the laws and constantly plead forgiveness. That’s anarchy because that would mean no law, no government, no police, no court, no prison.

Now as for God’s law and order, anything that God doesn’t like, you must ask forgiveness and he’ll let you go free to sin some more. Which it means, you’re free to rape, murder, steal, molest, do other atrocity as you like. All you need to do was ask an imaginary sky daddy for forgiveness.

Guess where I rather be in. Yep, that’s right, the secular law and order.

Insane biblical laws

1) Do not cook a baby goat in its mother's milk.
2) If two men fights and a man's wife reaches for the opponent's balls, the husband should cut off her hands.
3) Do not put an ox and an ass together in the same wagon.
4) Man should not sleep with mankind as with womankind, for it's an abomination.
5) If your child talks back, you should beat with with the rod.
6) sent a rebellious teenager out to the city to stone him to death.
7) If a bride is not found to be a virgin on her wedding day, take her to her father's doorstep and kill her.
8) If your father, your brother, your wife, anybody you know says, "Let us go serve other Gods," You should kill them mercilessly. In fact, destroy the city along with the livestock.
9) A slave whom you shall have, you can buy them from bordering lands around you.
10) It is ok to sell your daughter into slavery.
11) Kill those who works on a sabbath

22) Rapist must marry his rape victim.
23) a man who has long hair must be sent to death.
24) Man, slave should all be circumcised.

There are countless of laws, and i believe all speaks for themselves. It's repulsive, it's insane, and most certainly, it has nothing to do with morality or logical reason.

Why the Christian God is a monster

Many Christians will have you know that God is not a monster, that he is all loving, all merciful, all forgiving father god. The problem lies in the Bible and outside the Bible. Christians simply covers ears and claim God is "Not responsible for that." "That was Satan's doing," "God works in mysterious ways." and "God is punishing the wicked."

All of these have series of problems that do not match up.

God, in the Bible, has:

1) Flooded the world. Killing innocents, including babies.
2) Asks Abraham to murder his son, just to see if he'll do it for him.
3) Sends his own son, who is strangely himself, to be tortured and killed.
3) Has killed over tens of millions of innocent people.
4) He kills the firstborns of Egypt.
5) He sends down plagues, famine, war, poverty, disease, and death.
5) Sets down laws which all are ridiculous and vile. (I'll post it next)
6) Makes wagers with Satan to see if Job will remain loyal after destroying his life.
7) The Bible clearly shows God as a tyrant, liar, heartless, hypocritical, pro slavery, pro abortion, misogynist, homophobic, racist, commits infanticide, murderer, his reasoning is circular, his moral ethics is warped, clearly not all knowing, not all powerful, and most certainly not all loving, he contradicts himself, and is a coward for not showing himself to us today either.

why i would do not want religion.

This magical sky daddy, the one Christians calls their God, is not worthy of my praise or worship. And i will tell you why.

Your God wants us to own slaves. We don't do that and we should never do that. But we did and that was disgusting. Treating humans like farm equipments? That is precisely why your God is not worthy of my worship. But that does not end there.

He demands that i can treat a woman like a sexual object, that women should also be silenced, women should not have authority or even teach at all. This god is a misogynist jerk.

He demands that i beat a child with a rod. I stone gays, atheists, witches, disobedient children, people working on a sabbath, people luring you to other faiths, and so on. I will not kill anybody just because God doesn't like them. In fact, they do not deserved to be harmed why? Because they are who they are and killing them will not stop it. It's repulsive.

Your God allows natural disasters, sex offenders, viruses, mass murderers, and the likes to take lives without lifting a finger. If he's powerful, but doesn't want to stop it, he's evil. If he isn't powerful and wants to, he is not worthy of worship. If he is powerful and wants to do it, then why didn't he? What is he waiting for? What is the point of waiting?

Now why i don't want religion.

You indoctrinate your children. That means you raped their mind. You took away their right to think for themselves.

Your religion is fraught with heinous violent acts like the crusades, holy war, inquisitions, witch hunts, Holocaust, bombing of the abortion clinics, taking evolution out of schools, and attacking gays and atheists.

Because of religion, there had been slavery, discrimination, violence, lies, fear mongering, deceit, greed, power hungry, and of course indoctrination in children.

Religion has no meaning in my life.

I'm an atheist, and always will be. I'm happy, I'm law abiding, I'm skeptical towards everything, I'm always thinking for myself, and i never want to hurt or violate human rights. That is enough for me. No room for bullshit.

Indoctrination is child abuse

There is nothing more wrong than forcing your child to believe whatever you wanted them to believe. You took away their decision to make a choice, you raped their mind with hatred and prejudice, you place fear of hell in their brain, you made them feel that anything like homosexuality or non belief is wrong and are doomed to hell.

It's disgusting and should not be allowed. You spread hate, you spread fear, you spread lies. They need to be able to think for themselves, not to absorb all your belief. What problems is there in indoctrination in children?

They will be hating without logical reason all because you forced the hate in them. It confuses them.

They will always will be afraid because of your threats of damnation if they did "Sins"

There is no logical reason to indoctrination. It's child abuse. It's violation against human rights, it's violation to free speech, it's violation to church and state seperation. How? You force kids to believe your beliefs against their will.

If God exists, If he dictates the Bible PT .1

If God exists, which God is that? Christians says their God exists, but all are false. Muslims says, "Allah!", Hindus believe's it's Krishna, Biddhists believes it's Buddha, It could even be Zeus, Ra, Jupiter, or any other Gods.

Let's just say that the Christian God is the only god that exists. What kind of God is he? Christians claims he's all loving, all knowing, all powerful god. If that be the case, then that God sounds wonderful. But is that God from the Bible? Let's take a look at the Bible.

The Sexism in the Bible is all over the Bible. In it, women were not allowed to speak, or have authurity over men, or even teach. That means that Man can do whatever he wants with the woman, a woman can not be a teacher, and women can't be allowed to speak. However, in the Christian homes, Churches, schools, politics, authors, and so on all have many women speaking, having authroity, and teaching. Why is this? Because women fought against the sexism by men. They also are going against the Bible. But in a strange turn of event, many women believes in God, starts teaching about the Bible, and so on. It makes no sense to me because the Bible treats them like objects, Women fights against that, but embraces it.

The family values from the bible is warped and vile. In the old testament, we're supposed to beat our children with the rod, kill disobedient teenagers, silence our women for they're inferior. It even says if your brother, your father, your wife, or anyone tells you, "Let us go serve other gods." you are to kill them mercilessly. Also, in the new testament, Jesus stated that anyone who does not hate mother, father, brother sister, wife and children, and even himself cannot be my disciple. While also, the Bible clearly states we should honor thy mother and father as well as thou shalt not kill. This bible clearly makes the morality vague, warped, and dangerously twisted which resulted in many deaths of family members for religious reasons. Even children were beat for masturbating, for being gay, or disbelieving in a god, or anything that the bible says is wrong.

take your pick

this is the choice you have to make. This is for the death penalty argument.

Which one would you choose?

25 guilty murderers, pedophiles, and rapists in death row, while the rest of the potential victims lives, while risking at least one innocent man?


25 guilty murderers, pedophiles, and rapists alive to kill inmates and guards, escape, appeal, get wrongly released, and many innocents dies?

how i became an atheist

I do not think i can put this all in a order, but I'll do what i can.

I believe the first thing that got me to start questioning Christianity is that Christians tend to speak for God. I have no idea why they want to speak for their God. Couldn't God just speak to all of us? I mean really speak to all of us like we can speak to each other in person. To say God wishes me to tell you this or that you believe God wants us to know this or that. It really makes no sense.

Another that gets to me is the unexplainable hatred for homosexuals. I even asked why gays are hated. All i got was, "It's an abomination" "The bible said so" "God gave gays AIDS" and so on. It makes no sense. I even researched about them and even talked to them. I find nothing wrong with them. How can a God hate someone for loving another whom is of the same sex? It makes no sense.

Another one is the Bible. It is filled with contradictions, it's filled with errors, it's filled with insane stories that warps moral perspective from us today. Nothing about the Bible explains anything and Christians claims it's all metaphors. I can't picture a God going, "Here's my book, read it and believe it. But you can view it in metaphors because i don't want to be frank." but the idea of viewing the Bible as metaphors only confuses it even more. If you take a cookbook and read the recipe, you don't change it to your liking and you don't take out something just because you don't like them.

And another one is manipulation from the Christians. I'm talking abstinence only, and it tells to not have sex, not even use birth control or to even masturbate. nothing about abstinence only made any sense.

and the threats that Christians gives us, "Believe in God or burn in hell!"

no verifiable evidence that any Deity exists.

Spreading fear like the end of the world. it's been assumed the world would end thousands of times through all these years. now some moron has decided to say the year 2012 is the end.

All religion has been copied from each other. How can any be true?

Accusations against atheists, Jews, gays, and so on with no proofs. They basically just make stuff up and they also attack them.

and lastly; war. Inquisition, holy war, holocaust, crusades, attack on gays, abortion, schools for teaching evolution, and so on.

The critics

We hear about those critics who presents their reviews on pretty much everything. I know for a fact that everybody is a critic, not just some who are certified critic.

Everyone has their own views about everything, and to listen to someone else's review and believe them is a little stupid.

A critic is not some agent of human mind, or some absolute being who's always right. A critic who presents his review is just making his or her own opinion. Let's say for the movie, no critic who reviews the same movie would be the same. Including everyone who gave their own review on the Internet or magazines.

In a movie, people have different ideas about how it's supposed to be made. Some are more interested in the pictures like the visual effects more than the storyline for an example, and vice versa

For one example of this movie called Lord of the rings: Fellowship of the ring, i believe in my own opinion it is a good movie, great visual effect, and good storyline. However, another people who reviews might be more likely to say, "It doesn't follow the book entirely." others might not agree with the storyline or the visual effect it presented. the Critics is everybody. We all present our views, but it's fine to disagree and i do not think anybody should expect anyone to follow their point of view.

Now let's move on to a Hotel, inn, motels, or the likes. Each and everyone may agree it should be clean and at least friendly. But not many agrees with what should run in the hotels. Some might like the idea of pets in hotels or no pets, some might like a certain accent in a hotel. It's a matter of personal interest and lots of people are given choices of hotels they wish to stay. A critic who reviews the hotel will basically give a review based on their experience, their taste in things, and so on. However, it would not be the same experience as everyone else feel, and people like certain tastes in things like the decor, the food, and staff.

As for the restaurants, it's not the matter of fancy food, it's the matter of how it tastes. Every critic who makes their review are only human. And their tastes are not the same as everyone elses. And you don't need to have food that is the best, it's really the best if you like it personally.

there are other things people presents their reviews as well, but still, they're not absolute or better than anyone else.

It is good to have reviews of course, very interesting to hear what people may say, however, your own review may be different from another's review. It's all about personal interests, experience, taste, and belief. And everyone is different. People's review does not matter, it's your own review that matters to you.

list of resons for supporting the death penalty

The world is not all black and white, and the whole vegeance thing? that's bullshit. We're not doing this in hope that it gives comfort, we're doing that so nobody else have to suffer from what they went through.

Also, the reason people commit crimes is not because there is a death penalty, in fact the criminals are committing crimes because they wanted to. The death penalty does reduce the murder rates because a murderer is dead.

There is no perfect system, there is no perfect solution, but the death penalty is better than life in prison. The reason is, is because heinous criminals often do not regret their crime, they are not afraid of prison, and they most certainly confident they'll get out. With death row, they're dead period.

To say there are innocents on death row is true but very little evidence shows innocents on death row. The opponents exaggerates and claims that many more innocents are on death row, but this is bull and they know that. They are simply pulling numbers out of their ass just to fight against the death penalty. They also claim that even DNA evidence isn't 100% effective. Nothing is one hundred percent effective, however, with DNA evidence, Evidences, witnesses, Vouches, and such, increases a greater chance of correctly determine their guilt or innocence.

1) To say executing a murderer is hypocrisy, then police speeding after speeders, incarcerating kidnappers must be hypocrisy. Opponents need to get their logic straight.

2) There are no evidence that released or paroled killers or pedophiles didn’t commit crimes ever again. After being released or paroled, they’ve killed again.

3) There are little or no evidence that innocent people are on death row. To abolish the death penalty because of that risk is to abolish everything in the world. There are always and will be risks in everything we do.

4) There are claims that lethal injections are excruciatingly painful. It is important to know there are involuntary muscle movement and no evidence they really suffered.

5) We’re not sending death row inmates on a pleasure cruise, if they suffered, good.

6) Just because there are botched executions, doesn’t mean we should start pitying the inmate. Execution devices will sometimes be a little faulty.

7) To say there is no deterrence is to remove prisons and courthouses and police stations.

8) A dead murderer or a dead pedophile can’t commit anymore crimes. Deterrence is possible.

9) Imprisonment isn’t perfect because inmates can escape, appeal, be released, kill prison guards and inmates.

10) There are some people who said victims or the families who lost their loved ones don’t want us to kill for them. This kind of protest is insulting because this shows they don’t care about what happens to any other potential victims. If they did, they should not speak too highly of themselves.

11) As for the juvenile death penalty is to be permitted because teenagers are very well capable of murder, rape, and other crimes including molesting young children. To dismiss because of their age is in fact discrimination. Punishment is should fit to the crime not based on age, but of that specific crime.

12) The argument about The discrimination of the death penalty is very weak. It’s all about the crime one individual committed, not the color of their skin, intellect, disability, gender, age, or religion.

13) There is no reason at all to keep pedophiles or murderers alive. They have no feelings for the victims, and the prison does not deter them from that crime. You can capture a wolf, but you can’t make it harmless.

14) The opponents of the death penalty do not understand the meaning of the word punishment. They think it means the inmates should be treated as if in a hotel.

15) The criminal who has mental conditions or is mentally retarded, should not be waivered from severe punishment as those who have a clear state of mind. If both committed a similar heinous crime, they should receive the death penalty. To excuse because they didn’t know what they were doing is inexcusable because they committed the heinous crime.

16) The opponents of the death penalty say that the lethal injections are used by the Nazi. If this is to be the cause, then we should stop breathing because the Nazis themselves breathe.

17) Some of the anti-death penalty person said that he believes that the government is going around obliterating people exterminating people. That there was a psychological terror and a massive human extermination. This sounds a bit more like the Adolf Hitler’s regime in Germany. But the fact is, this is just mass paranoia without tangible piece of evidence.

18) The opponents claims that we are sinking to their level. This is highly false because the murderers and pedophiles violates human rights and killed innocent people. We gave trial, presented proof, and placed them on death row and then proceeded to execution.

19) To say we are murderers because the state executes a murderer is nonsense. If execution makes us a murderer, then going to war, self defense, police shooting the criminals to protect others, and even murderers murdering innocent people makes us all murderers. The opponent’s argument is illogical.

20) They say it is a violation in human rights because it is wrong to take someone’s life. Then if this is to be the case, then it is a violation in human rights to incarcerate criminals which denies them their liberty.

21) The purpose of the execution is to protect innocent lives. If we failed to execute them, then we just killed innocent people.

22) Some opponents claims that the execution won’t bring the victims back. This is not what it is about. It’s about preventing any more deaths of innocent people.

23) Opponents have argued that capital punishment did not stop murderers and pedophiles. Neither has the prison stopped people from stealing or making tax frauds, but you don’t see them abolishing prisons.

24) The opponents argues that it is expensive to execute someone. This is extremely false because the life in prison is a long time and the money goes pretty high as 5 million or more. The death penalty is less than a million.

25) To support the death penalty, you care about the innocents, not the murderers.

The flaws in God’s plan

We are told that God has plans for everybody from the time they’re born to the time they die. If God exists and he does indeed have plans, then there are few flaws in his plan; free will and prayer.

If God exists, then the plans from the bible are all in order. God tells Adam and Eve not to eat the tree of knowledge between good and evil, but he also planned them to disobey them by using the devil and then condemns them. All of these were planned. God also plans the world wide flood then claims he made a mistake after the flood.

He also plans Jesus Christ’s death by crucifixion to save our souls from the “Sin” and yet, he has us condemned from following his plans anyway.

If God truly exists ever, then I being an atheist was his plan. He also plans me to write this book, criticizing God’s plans, the doctrine of Christianity, and criticizing God himself. But if that were true, then I am to be blameless.

Also, the devil is blameless, because God plans people to be possessed by the devil and plans catholic priests to molest our children, he even plans murderers, rapists, and pedophiles to do his bidding and they too are not to blame because this is all God’s plan.

God planned Adolf Hitler to murder millions of Jews, God planned the hijackers to fly the plane into our world trade centers, God plans Christians to murder gays, atheists, Witches, heretics, and so on for centuries.

God plans abortions, and then has us fight against it, plans diseases and we fight against it, and death penalty, gay marriage, and so on were planned, including these who opposed. Do any of these make any sense to you?

The problem with the plan is that we do not have free will. If God doesn’t have a plan, then we are to blame for our free will, which we should, because we alone are responsible for our actions. It should be our free will to decide for our own actions. This makes better sense since all the plans of God contradicts everything and serves no purpose to anybody.

Another flaw in God’s plan is prayer. If God has a plan, then why would he abandon the plan to answer your prayers? If God answers prayers, then the plans are ignored. However, some Christians will say God plans us to pray anyway. Unfortunately, God ignores it and uses the Tsunami to drown the people in Asia pacific and use the Hurricane Katrina to drown devoted Christians and other non-Christians in New Orleans anyway.

If God exists, then the plan in question is unavoidable. We are planned from the start to do God’s bidding without free will of our own, and then condemn us for following his plans. So he made me an atheist, then will condemn me to hell, he plans people to be Gay, then condemns them all, he plans everything a person is then subjects them to be humiliated for their glasses, wearing specific attire, being in wheelchair, being short or tall, and so on. God plans us to be killing people, raping people, molesting people, and so on.

Why would God plan us to commit such repulsive actions and then have us fight against these repulsive actions? Why would God make us support and oppose death penalty, gay marriage, abortion, and so on? Why would God make us be mindless and murderous about certain things like evolution being taught in schools, abortion clinics and gay clubs?

If you think about it as an intelligent person, you will realize that the statement "It is part of God's plan" is one of those meaningless palliatives. When you sit down and think it through using your common sense, the statement makes no sense.

Let me point out that God’s plan is meaningless because if God drowns a child so that we can learn that we should keep watch on our children, then why did it continue? What reason is there for God to plan children’s death by sex offenders? We know it is wrong, but it continues on. It must mean God doesn’t intend to teach us what to understand, he just likes making our lives a living hell.
Why does God plague us with diseases and make us cure it and then plague us with more diseases? Why does God allow children to suffer? God’s entire plan is meaningless.

More on morality: Morality in the bible

Let’s suppose you have a child, and that child talks back to you, disobeys your rules in the house, then the Bible tells you to stone him to death. If you refuse to kill your child, then you decided to defy your lord, your God. In the Bible, it tells us to stone the bride on her father’s doorstep if she is found not to be a virgin. The bible endorses oppression of women, slavery, selling your daughters to sexual slavery, and stoning heretics, adulterers, homosexuals, Sabbath breakers, witches, followers of Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and all other imaginary crimes.

Let’s say you refuse to do any of these things, you probably think these do not apply because it was just the Old Testament and that it’s a Jewish bible. The problem is, the Bible is made by God and by God’s word, you must do as he said as written in the Bible. So why defy him? Because you knew it was wrong and that you knew it was written in ancient times, you admit God is not a perfect being, nor was he an all loving, all merciful, all knowing God. Yet, you still believe in God and that you think God is all loving, all powerful, all knowing God anyway. How can this be? Maybe you want to believe this book was really just a book written by misguided primitive men, not God and that God is not what the Bible says. But the Bible is precisely what made you believe in God in the first place.

You cannot decide for yourself how you want your God to be, that is for your God to decide for himself. Why speak for him? Why pretend the Bible isn’t God’s word?
Some of the Christians still follows the laws of the old testament today, some even believes that Jesus Christ will come to earth to judge the living and the dead.
Why do some Christians ignore what is written in the Bible? Because they believe some still applies and some don’t. Some believes the Bible never contains such horrible passage that today’s society never accepts. Some never even read the Bible, only learned from those who taught them if not their parents, but where did the parents get the idea about God? The Bible.

You cannot pretend the Bible doesn’t contain such atrocity and the violent laws, nor can you pick what you like and neglect the rest. The Bible is suppose to be an inspired word of God, and yet, it doesn’t leave us in awe by its inspiration and brilliant wisdom, it just left us with disgusting tales of Moses leading an army to kill thousands of men and male children and women who slept with men, and raping virgin girls. And another tale about Abraham attempting to kill his son Isaac without hesitation just because God told him to do it, and so on.

Many Christians today still tries to keep their faith alive, but knows things are changing, and that new scientific facts clears up some problems we have today, we no longer own slaves or oppress women or kill atheists and gays. So why keep God? Because they don’t want to part from their imaginary friend. It is time we grow up, it is time we listen to truth.

Why must we pretend the Bible is the perfect word of the creator while we defy the laws God has given us? You can’t have it both ways, and if you think you can, then tell me why you would believe God is perfect and is all loving while ignoring the Bible that speaks of owning slaves and killing heretics? Because it’s all metaphors? Because it doesn’t apply? Because Jesus did away with the Old Testaments?
I can understand that you wanted there to be a God who loves us, who has the power to protect us. I can understand you want to believe there is a place called Heaven.
Jesus did not do away with the old Testaments. Reread the New Testament and you will find that Jesus expects us to follow the Old Testament laws, and Jesus never did say Slavery was wrong or that women deserve equality.

Why exorcism is bull

The chilling growls, the cuts on their flesh, their violent attitude is frightening, and they speak in languages people didn’t know they could speak, and the comforting truth is… it is all full of crap.
Let me point out the problem here; there is no proof that any demons or the devil ever truly existed.
So why did the Christians or other religious believers believe the demons are out there, possessing us?

Let’s look into the past about the whole demon possession.
People back then did not know what dementia is, nor do they realize what is hallucinations are. They thought the voices in their head were the demon or god.
Another one is that they don’t know what is mental illness is. People who have seizures, people who were blind, deaf, or mute, people who foams at the mouth, people who are just mentally insane are believed to be all possessions of the devil.
Sadly today, most Christians still believe the devil exists and the demons are out to get us.

Religious leaders tells us that we have demons latching onto us like leeches, they tell us that the devil is out there and we must worship God and Jesus Christ to fight against him.

68% of the people in America believe Satan exists and he is out to get us. Satan is a same term for the boogeyman to children. It is just a scare tactic to keep believers from being “sinful.”

How does one know when somebody is possessed? They hear voices that aren’t there, they see things that aren’t there. The mind plays tricks on us, and it plays a mean through trick that lasted for thousands of years, and still going. The negative emotions, the drama, and among other things, living your life is a presumption that you’re possessed by the demon.

But that is not all, sometimes, some will try getting other people’s attention by pretending to be possessed. Why? Because the more they pay attention to them, the better.

As for the unusual things like the animal growls, speaking in different languages, cuts on their body, some claims they levitate or walk on water, and so on.
When I saw a video of the guy speaking about exorcism, he claims that some has levitated or walked on water. He never proved it because he never showed it. Plus we never saw any supernatural thing like levitation or walking on water, it was all talk. You can’t make up stuff and pass it off as true, you need to present credible, verifiable concrete evidence in person. Since there has been no evidence of any actual demon possessions, people who performs the exorcisms are just embarrassing themselves with their delusional belief.

I know that exorcisms are false because the videos I’ve seen shows people only growling and snarling and standing around in front of a priest who just threw a book at them, puts his or her hands on their foreheads and chanting nonsense, putting crosses to their faces, and sprinkling the “Holy” water.

This is how an exorcist performs. He shouts at the possessed, hurts the possessed, claiming that if you hurt the victim you hurt the demons, and he throws water, vinegar, and books at them.

They say exorcism takes years to learn, so it must be difficult to throw books or shout at people.

After I seen several videos, I see no supernatural things occurring, I see nothing more than people growling, Just growling. Exorcism is false, or at least Penn Jillette might say, “Bullshit.”

Allow me to debunk those who claimed that that who spoke in different languages or made animal sounds, it is very easy to make animal sounds. In many movies, the actors who perform in films by making animal sounds were just doing their performance, so were they possessed? No, they were not. When people like Robin William who can do voices, he wasn’t possessed. As for speaking in different languages, anybody can learn to speak a language. Just because you knew the person, doesn’t mean you knew what language they actually knew. Not everybody knew I can speak a little Japanese or French.

Another thing I will debunk, they wanted to blame their troubles or other people’s problems on the devil. For an example, some people will say they think someone they knew was possessed because they went to jail for a crime they did, or that someone they knew were “Not themselves anymore.” Allow me to clear this matter up; everybody is a human being with problems and we have our share of trouble with many other people like authority. Just because someone broke the law or seem to behave differently, doesn’t mean they are possessed. It just means they have problems.

We are all responsible for our own actions, not some imaginary friends. If you claim someone is possessed because they just went to jail, you’re sadly misguided from the fact; they broke the law willingly and perhaps intentionally, there is nothing supernatural about that. Whenever a teen acts out, it is just a rebellious teenage phases, not some demon possession.

If you know someone who drinks alcohol, then they will behave differently because alcohol affects them, making them aggressive and/or abusive, not because demons were possessing them.

In the show Penn and Teller bullshit, they also have this lady who tells little children that their imaginary friends are actually demons and that they needed to be chased out. Penn said that she is the one who needs to be chased out. I agree with him.

Does anyone also notice that most Christians who believe in demon possession actually believed themselves or someone they knew to be actually possessed? Wouldn’t you think that millions of us atheists would be possessed since we are the ones who disbelieve in God and Jesus Christ? If you are smart, you will realize just how Exorcism turns out to be false.

Since many Christians believes Atheists like us are possessed by the devil, one would easily look no further than the homes of all who claims there to be possessions are in Christian homes, not atheist’s homes.

If I am possessed, then why have I not heard anything scary voices of demons or Satan? Why had I not find myself in prison for some crimes I didn’t know I did? I have a job, I write stories, I just sleep, eat, do a bit of work out, and not once did I steal or raped or killed anybody. I never will do that either.
The thing is, Satan is a deceiver and a temptation. I was told if I saw a dollar, I would pick it up because Satan would want me to. This is false because there is no crime in it, nothing illegal about finding money on the ground. Satan is supposed to be evil, like lead me to temptation like rape or murder. But that never happened did it? This is another I just debunked.

There is no devil, no such supernatural phenomenon, only those who believes it believes themselves to be possessed, and all actions are done by our own intention and free will.

Why would God hate?

It is a simple reason; people hate people, so they wanted their God to hate those they hate. For absolutely no reason whatsoever, they wanted to make their prejudice excusable by saying, “God hates Gays.” Or whatever.

In the Bible, it has a lot of hate spoken against gays, non-believers, adulterers, stubborn teenagers, and all others for no apparent reason. It did not say why God hates Gays; it just simply said it was “An abomination.” My question is what is abnormal about homosexuality? It didn’t even explain why We atheists are wrong to disbelieve in God. Also it didn’t explain why children are worth stoning just because they are disobedient.

Children are all disobedient in their teenage years simply because it is a way life is. If teens gets too attached to their parents, they would not survive in the real world. This isn’t to say they shouldn’t love, they should love their parents and treat them with respect. That is if parents are not abusive just because they can’t tolerate their teens being themselves, following their own paths, their own goals. Children are not made to do every little thing their parents’ wishes. This is why it is ridiculous to get angry with your kids for being disobedient.

This is why I cannot understand why we should stone our children. Even though today we don’t stone them, parents still hurts their kids for a little disobedience. Try learning about your teen, try understanding their feeling instead of being childish.
What I saw in the gay community are just friendly people enjoying life just like everybody else. So what is with the hating? As far as I can tell, The Bible is written in ancient times where people could never understand anything like the disabled people, gays, people whom are left-handed, people with mental illness, and so on. Back then, they believed the earth was flat, that the earth was the center of the universe, that everything that happens in nature is by supernatural.

There is no reason to hate something that was written centuries or thousands of years ago. What they say is not worth listening to. Today we realize differently than people centuries before had learned.

Today we knew that mental illness is a cause by nature, back then, we thought it was demon possession, when people are blind or cannot hear, we thought demon possession.
We have advanced modern medicine, they don’t. We knew about science, they do not.
So why did they listen to the bible? Because they believed it was written by God. They believe their God wants them to obey the bible or burn in hell.

Fortunately there are many Christians who ignore things in the bible for better reason. However, since they believe in their God, they pretend the bible is just a metaphor for something else, not meant to be taken seriously.

What bothers is me, if it is just a metaphor, then why did the bible contradict itself? What is a metaphor for all these deaths in the bible? What’s metaphoric about Lot having sex with his daughters? What is metaphoric for drowning infants in the world wide flood just because they were “Wicked?”

As for those who claim that God love, they simply make the claims by confusing their own feelings to their God’s. Surely it is good to see people being open minded and more accepting than these who claims God “Hates” like Fred Phelps, the most repulsive man on the planet, physically and mentally.

The god does not hate nor does he love, because it is a human feeling. Why would an all powerful creator who creates the universe hate?

A creator who can create Earth and make life, does not need to hate or love because there isn’t a reason to. Can an artist hate what he or she has painted? Can a writer condemn their written characters they’ve made? No, because it makes no sense. Also love isn’t important when drawing or writing or whatever, because it is art. Simply just a creation we make for ourselves. If there is a God ever, he would be more like these artists or writers, just simply creating just for himself.

A God who hates is not worth worshipping, and the bible is full of hate. The bible is proof it is written by many men who knew nothing more than what 5 year old children do. Because hate is a human emotion, and their ugly hatred for gays, atheists, adulterers, and disobedient children are childish and sad.

Ideas I believe would be better

The ideas I believe would be better for this country, but I’m not assuming it’s the best idea, but these ideas I believe are what I believe personally, what is the best for this country.

I strongly believe we need smaller government because the bigger the government is, the more power they use against us.

I want people to stop tearing apart the bill of rights or the constitution because these are made precisely what made this country as it is. It’s the land of the free, not the land of power of corruption or even religion. The important thing is, is the ideas we all want what’s best for the country. I know, we all have different ideas and they may conflict, I know we can’t please everybody, and most certainly, nothing would make the country look like some pathetic, goofy looking cartoon where everything looks peaceful.

I want the government to stop trying to pay religion, stop trying to make law against things based on personal dislikes. The laws should be about protecting people from people who wants to control us, kill us, or even violate human rights. I want there to be no more wars on petty things like personal interests like drugs, porn, prostitution, and such. These are personal interest by people who chooses them individually. You can’t just take them away just because you don’t like them.

I want the police, the policy makers, government, to focus on real dangers around us like the murder, pedophilia, thieves, rapists, everything that violates human rights. Prositution is not a violation on human rights, it’s forcing a person to be a prostitute is a violation of human rights. Using drugs is not a violation of any kind, because people makes the choice what to put in their body like alcohol and cigarettes. People should be allowed to watch porn without the government treating them like criminals, including those who seeks service from prostitute.

I believe that the Christianity needs to be told to shut up when trying to enforce their religious beliefs and so called laws into the government to enforce that onto us. I’m not saying that Christianity can’t do what they want, they can do what they want except violate human rights or forcing their beliefs down people’s throats.

People should also make the choice without being forced against their will. And none of the, “You’re either with us or against us.” Bullshit because nobody is with you or against you.

What made this country great is the freedom to choose, speak, bear arms, and such and taking that away violates that which made this country great.

The problem of the ten commandments

From the problems of the Ten Commandments is that, people who wrote the Bible claims that Moses went up Mount Sinai to get commandments from the God. What got me suspicious is that Moses told people that only he is allowed to go up the mount Sinai and anyone else who goes up will die or something like that. That sounds like something a liar would cook up in order to keep people from realizing that he is a deceitful con artist. It makes absolutely no sense that people can’t go up the mount Sinai and have God tell them his laws himself. What’s wrong with that idea? What are those people hiding? I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting a, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtains.” Kind of talk from these religious folks.

Now, as for the Commandments, it was supposed to be a perfect moral law there is. But the first four has nothing to do with morality, it just has to do with pleasing a childish God.

Thou Shalt Have no other Gods before me.

That indicates that God wants what he wants, not what is best for people. He’s jealous and sounds like a jerk to me than a God worthy of praise and worship.

Thou shalt not make yourself graven images.

It seems to me that this God hates drawings, sculptures, anything that is art. But why? What does this have to do with morality? And doesn’t every Christian realize that everything is really Graven Images? Statues of Jesus, Statues of Virgin Mary, Statues of many religious icons, Religious arts on Candles, stained glass windows in Churches, I can go on. All of them is considered Graven Images. And every one of them who believes in the Bible, the Ten Commandments wants to put it everywhere. This is ironically stupid.

Thou shalt Not say the Lord’s name in Vain.

So if someone uses your name in Vain, it’s bad? Why is God so concerned on how people say things? Why would stuff like “God damnit” and “Jesus Christ” be so unsettling to them? We humans can take the offensiveness, but it seems that God can’t. I bet he even cannot take a Joke either.

Thou shalt Remember the Sabbath Day and to keep it Holy.

So that means we can’t do anything on the Sabbath day. But that means patients can’t be taken care of, Criminals can take advantage of that day because of no police work, people all over the world would have to stop working. But to do that, would destroy many things, it would be disastrous. I don’t even understand why we have to stop working on the Sabbath day, it seems to me that this God isn’t all knowing or intelligent. If he exists, and is all knowing, then he would not say remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.

There are couple of other things that has nothing to do with morality, or at least complicates the perspective of what is moral in these terms.

Honor thy father and thy mother.

Honor and respect has to be earned. You don’t need to just honor someone of authority, just because they have responsibility over you. Some can be good, some are bad, so not all can be honored.

Thou shall not kill.

Now this is what I was just saying earlier. The perspective of the moral issue here is, you cannot murder for profit, passion, or compulsiveness. But when it comes to protecting your fellow man, yourself, your country, you can take the life of those who threatens to kill.

Also, the problem of this Commandment is, Christians and all other Religious believers murders innocent people for their God(s). Clearly, they broke all of the commandments in a heartbeat. It’s ironic and strange because to believe and worship and follow the laws, you would think they would not kill people when their God(s) clearly states that they should not. However, their God tells them to kill as well, which contradicts their demand of no killing. See? It’s ironic.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor.

While it is true that you shouldn’t make false accusations or lie, it seems to me that Christians and many other people of different beliefs and people who disbelieve in any Gods lies or makes accusations against another. Christians are accusing us Atheists or other people for the disasters they (these Christians) have caused.

Thou Shalt not steal

However, the idea is moral, but stealing can also be beneficial depending on reason. If I stole documents from the corruptive Organization or the government and provided it to the media or the authority, I could stop disastrous things they planned on doing. Or I can steal food to feed my family when we have no money. However, the bad reason for stealing is profit, power, thrill, or corruption. And that is precisely what many Religious organizations and some politicians are doing.

Thou shall not Commit Adultery

Problem is, everybody has different ideas about love, sex, marriage, and relationships. In fact, some do not care if you slept with one another.

Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s wife, house, and possessions.

Actually, that is bad for economy, because you are supposed to covet thy neighbor’s possessions. That is how economy works, that is how you build trade and make profits. Also, people like other countries as well, and love to have some of their things and vice versa. So what is wrong with that? Can I not want what my neighbors have? A nice laptop, or comfy couch? If I see what I want, I want to get it. From stores that is.

What atheism really is.

Atheists simply do not believe in the existence of a God or any gods. In fact, everybody in the world is an atheist in a certain term. Only difference is, i disbelieve in all of the Deities. Christians disbelieve in the existence of all other gods except their own, one religion after another, they disbelieve others religion and their deity as well.

I have noticed that some Christians believes that Atheists are violent people who wants to destroy religion and morality. This is ironic, because Christians themselves have been violently attacking evolution being taught in science classes, abortion clinics, gay clubs, and the atheists. As for the morality, it's rather amusing and quite bullshit to believe that atheists wants to destroy morality. What morality does one follow? Everybody has their own ideas about morality, only thing we can all agree on is murder is wrong, so is stealing, and abusing one another. However, some Christians believes that Morality comes from their God. The problem with that is, their God is as about as moral as Adolf Hitler.

Also, i was told by a christian that atheists have been wanting to kill Christians, which they believe was written in their books. I've read their books. There is not one shred of evidence of their desire to murder innocent people. This Christian clearly thinks when Sam Harris said, "We should abandon Religion," he means abandoning the notion of a magical sky daddy. He is not inducing some war on religion. Atheists do not wish to kill anyone. You can't kill someone in the name of Atheism. But apparently, Christians thinks you can. No, you can not. Atheism is not a religion, Atheism is not some group of criminals, they are people who disbelieve in a God. Christians madly tries to cover their ears about the violence done in the name of God, while point the finger of accusation against atheists. They point their finger at them, because they believe they lack morality.

Morality is not given by some divine interpretation or guidance, it is by human sympathy and personal experience. To say God is moral while making crusades, inquisitions, holy wars, witch hunts, and attacks on innocent people is not moral. Atheists does not do that. In fact, Atheists have no reason to want to harm people in the name of Atheism. It makes absolutely no sense. Disbelievers simply just disbelieve. Everything else is by personal affair.

I'm an atheist, and i do not wish to go harming another person, even my dad, who too is an atheist, does not wish harm onto another fellow human being.

I don't think religion has its uses in this world, but that does not mean i want Christians or other religious believers dead. Their religion is slowly dying out on its own, merely because of Christians themselves. I abandoned religion because of the Christians. But i never wish them harm. My grandparents and my great grandparents believes in the God, but i love them regardless. I personally do not care about what people believes in, as long as they do not harm another. That is why Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and other atheists are trying to say from the beginning. It's harmful, it's ridiculous, it's unnecessary, and more importantly it is bullshit.
