Who Needs Proof When You Have Imagination?

I can’t disprove your superstitions any more than I can disprove Mother Goose. I can express sincere doubts however, about the likelihood of a cow making lunar orbit.

I have deep misgivings about the existence of invisible, intangible beings from an alternate dimension who used magical powers to create and interfere in this universe.

Further, I have my doubts that these magnificent beings would need to contact an illiterate, murderous pedophile in a cave to send their message, or, for that matter, make small talk with a would be genocidal conqueror via flammable shrubbery.

Let’s face it, impregnating a Jewish teenager with yourself, then bumping around doing third rate miracles and magic tricks for the primitives , finally getting yourself lynched so you could change your own admission policies for your alternate dimension/cosmic amusement park is a pretty silly notion.

In the end, it’s not about what you are able to prove or disprove but rather how far you are willing to prostitute reason in order to believe any of it…

Christianity: A disgusting middle eastern blood cult, based in human sacrifice, with sacraments of cannibalism and vampirism, whose highest icon is of a near naked man hanging in torment from a device of torture.

I always enjoy reading your

I always enjoy reading your posts Luis. Let me add to this as a reminder about Ocham's Razor, which postulates out of many different guesses as to a particular problem, the one with the least baggage is the most likely answer.

So on top of what you rightfully said all one has to do to understand even more what you said is the following.

 

Which seems more likely as an explanation to why god claims exist?

1. God/s are real?

or

2. People have always made up gods and gods are merely products of human imagination?

The theist who reads this needs to ask themselves this question and also think about why they reject all other claims besides their own pet claim. If they can understand why they reject all other claims, then the can understand why we reject theirs as well.

LC,
Had to read it 3 times to get it all in. Each time I had to laugh and acknowledged you nailed it.

Religion Kills !!!

Numbers 31:17-18 - Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
