My two older siblings, decided to take me with them to Sunday-School (I had no voice at all in their decision making process) I remember my first and last day in Sunday-School (they both occurred on the same day). I sat there for over two hours; with about 30 other little kids, watching a movie about the “great-flood,” and how 7 members of Noah’s family had repopulated the planet (through incest and a massive inbreeding program). Even as a little kid, I wasn’t buying this bullshit! My dad was into the national geographic magazine, and the stories about the space-race. He would read everything thing else he could get his hands on, that was about nature, science, and the earth. We would talk about all the different types, and sub types of animals on the planet (my dad loved crocodiles and alligators).
After this boring movie was over; and the teacher started asking questions – like if we understood god’s love; how he gave us the rainbow, as his promise of love for us - never to flood the earth again. I simply got up and left. As I walked home thinking; what about all the innocent people who had died because this evil ghost had a – and all these silly Christians who loved this sadistic, murderous little bitch of a ghost, out of fear (I thought; fuck his rainbow, and his fucking “love,” I want no parts of this fucking asshole) fuck god!
In the subsequent years; I realized this story was just all made up bullshit. There are over 40 million different types of life form that would have had to be on that ark; there’s no way in the fucking universe, this could have ever had happened. That day my dad took me outside and pointed at Mount Rainier and said: you see all that snow and ice on the top, that mountain is only 14,000 feet or so; add another 8000 feet, if you believe the bible, and that silly ark story – if the earth, ever did in fact, have 22,000 more feet of water on its surface; it would have turned into a frozen waste land. The bible is just a bunch of bullshit, and the story of god is just the same as well.
How anyone could still believe this bullshit in 2010, is just beyond me
When I see all the hatred and violence in the world today – folks fighting over their beliefs in a personal god; most derived from this evil one in the bible – there no question their morals are the reflection of this murderous god. Generation after generation being indoctrinated with these silly childlike myths; and the evil and hateful, make-believe stories – and all the evil it’s brought to the world. And some people ask why we as a people can be so uncaring, when tens of thousands of people die in natural disasters (I guess if someone, anyone could believe their all loving Gawd, once flooded the earth and murdered millions innocent people, and animals too; what’s the big deal over 100,000 or so – Gawd loves pain and suffering, so why should they care as well).
These people say we should be sensitive, and tolerant, of their deluded childlike worldviews. As I’ve grown older, I see no reason at all to be sensitive, and tolerant of ideas, which are just plain harmful, and cause people to become so selfish and heartless. I believe we need to look at the whole of religion; good bad or indifferent – it all needs to go away.
