god v infinity .... (religiorant)

do people believe in god because they can't conceptualise infinity?

is it possible that the tiny human mind is unable to fathom the concept of the infinite emptiness of space, that it is unable to grasp how there can be a "something" that didn't stop - ever - so they just put that concept into the bucket that is labelled "god looks after this stuff"?

but is it not arrogant to assume something is done by god? god supposedly did everything, right? so why does the believer ever need to identify individual components of all of the things that god did?

because what happens when something you throw something into the "infinite" bucket of things that god looks after? Sometimes those things have to get pulled out and put into pesky things that mankind has figured out

ie. those things are no longer the domain of god ... and if anything can be taken away from your god, then your god wasn't god, was it?

you set a boundary on your god by identifying the things it has supposedly done and then you had to move that boundary?


because your god is your ego and egos can grow and shrink, so when you learned some new bit of information that your god was the supposedly the source of but wasn't, so you had to deflate your ego a little bit so it would fit back inside where-ever it is you keep it.

if you believe in god - fine - good on you - believe away - but if you constrain your god with any specific tasks, even something as grandiose as creating the universe, you are putting a limit on your god, you are using god as a thing - as an icon that represents "knowledge" - *your* knowledge, so when you don't know something, you stick god in there as the answer and many believers arrogantly believe themselves to be of superior intellect, whether they actually are or not, simply because they have god on their side.

This is kind of like saying you know what is at the end of the rainbow when you don't, but you know that god knows, and therefore you do too, which inflates your ego with this non-knowledge that only "god" knows....

the word faith has been overused ... (mincing words)

the word "faith" has been overused, it pretty much means nothing to be a person of "faith" these days

"oh what's that? you're a person of 'faith'? well whooop dee frigging doo dah mate, you want fries with that? a Mickey Mouse badge, perhaps?"

if a non-believer does have any "faith", then it is faith in common sense and reason, therefore, those that do not exhibit common sense and reason, commit blasphemy against the "faith" of the non-believer... well, why not... quid pro quo, Clarice

and the word miracle - has been obliterated - a plane crashes - 200 people die, but a dog survives, and that's a miracle - no, you stupid fuck tards - a miracle would have been 200 people surviving as well as the dog surviving!

so believe in miracles as much as you want, because the word "miracle" is worn out any way...

it's a miracle gravity made something form out of nothing,
it's a miracle the big bang happened,
it's a miracle evolution happened,
it's a miracle we came down from the trees,
it's a miracle we can dream up such elaborate fairy tales like "god"

so believe in god, the word is worn out any way, make up your own god... Pez dispensor ... electricity ... ice cream ... these things have more credibility than the "being" people think of as "god", these things are "realer" than your belief in whatever it is you think you believe in... hell, Luke Skywalker is "realer" than god will ever be
