Truth about God—Yes, Even That One

The answer to the mystery is a malfunction in human cognition

Advertisements

It doesn’t take a lifetime to figure this out. I got into this quest about two years ago and part-time have easily disproved any semblance of god, backed by the best reproducible research and study—then easily answered the hardest questions by mere observance. From all the available research and laboratories around the world—and from mere reason, there is no god or gods.

We have a problem with perception—purely bias, easily indoctrinated, deceived from the time we can breath, then required by command by people who lie to us to trust, have faith, just hang in there. For what? What has it produced but deeper conjecture and division? How long does religion deserve to prove its objectives?

Mans search to solve what are actually the quirks of neurology and perception has spent over 100 generations seeking truth since the Jesus myth, and who-knows how long before that. Impressions, dopaminergic rewards and other hormonal responses have been neatly illusive to comprehend. The fact is we are easily fooled, easily persuaded, easily gathered, and by belief in another plane of omnipotent existence we have divided humanity into groups.

The red writing in the Bible is right about one thing—faith has power. The power to overlook obvious contradiction, lies, truths, and through belief the “men of words” of the world have controlled nations—and we’ve paid them to do it.

The reality is that ever-changing neurologies and circumstance is hard to pin down. Everyone sees something different, even in the physical sense, let alone from the corner of their eye in a darkened environment—or a church hall. Humanity is unstable. Faith is too easily rewarded as shown by mans desires to believe in anything at all. Believing gets you the good-boy award for doing what can’t be helped by our physiology. If there is a god he’s laughing his ass off at his fuck-up. Life is to be lived people. There are no secrets. There are no mysteries of heaven or god. 10,000 years of the best minds have found nothing—not a damn thing! And who thinks that finally now we will find what we’ve been taught to search for, that no one else has ever found?

In the end everyone decides what kind of god they are willing to accept. Fundamentalism is pure whack job—the smug call that orthodoxy while the rest (even the normal believer) see real religion as a cancer. Water it down and at least it’s tolerable—barely.

  1. I have one on my side of the family. Completely understand your feelings. We are just very happy you take time to pop in and grace us with your presence. 🌞

  2. Most all the anonymous polls and scientific studies show this…

    Studies done from 2007 through 2011 in 40 countries around the world, including the United States show that the rational choice to adhere to a religion is heavily self-centered, not theological, not necessarily empirical, or not even miraculous, but instead based on the question, what will the decision cost ME?

    Bottom-line? Whether the religious admit it or not, it has everything to do with “fitting in with the crowd.” Too scared to march to your own beat staying true to self and what nature and all evidence puts in front of you and every single other human being on the planet. What myth or fairy-tale you subscribe to or label yourself has no relevance. Period. End of discussion. 🙂

    1. Well well look who rose from the DFW ashes to make another perfect comment. Firstly, good to see you. Truth! Fitting in is número uno. Interestingly fitting in is the number one regret of hospice patients. Living life on someone else’s terms untrue to yourself is the biggest regret ever. And it’s never too late to regret, people only regret when it’s too late.

      1. LOL… yes, sorry my good Friend. I had a family emergency this week and the week prior. Once again my addict sister. She’s now in prison for her 3rd major drug arrest. 😦 I’m having to help (again for the umpteenth time) my 79-yr old mother handle her matters & apartment that police & narcotic agents raided this week. *big sigh*

  3. My best friend here in Alabama is a Lutheran. His wife died five years ago. He told me that only a few days after her death, he had a dream in which his wife appeared and told him to search an area in their yard–she gave specific directions. He said the next morning, he went to the spot that she, his dead wife, had mentioned in the dream, and he found a religious artifact. I can’t remember exactly what, a cross that had been lost or something of that sort.

    At any rate, that experience pushed him with no small amount of force into the arms of the Lutheran church. His belief is wrapped up solid in his emotional life. His wife (from the other side) directed him to the cross. This man served on a nuclear submarine during the cold war. Went back to school after his military obligation was done. Got a degree in engineering. He’s intelligent. And yet, a thousand books, a million perfect arguments cannot undo his emotional feeling that yep, there’s a god in heaven and his wife’s waiting for him to show up! The same way the cartoonist showed Barbara Bush and her daughter, the one who died young, greet Dubya in cloudy heaven. I don’t know about your area, but folks down here loved that cartoon.

    Christianity has played that tune for two thousand years. And it still works. The Christian Industry knows its clientele. Oh, and here in Alabama, a good many of the folks who go to church every Sunday also go back home and watch Hannity and Co. The mythic claws have industrial and political strength.

    1. Interesting. And purely jesus is the only thing that could have allowed his wife’s apparition to present some spectral evidence. A million people dream about loved ones. One finds a twig in the shape of a cross and its headlines. There were 99,999,999 other dreams that produced nothing. It’s called luck—mixed with a little timing. She should have told him where some Spanish gold was buried…Great comment Paul. Thanks

  4. I’m not an atheist. What is amazing to me is how many are tricked into servitude based on a lie. Religion in general harms. Being confined to the structure of their choice is nothing less than true damnation of their being.

    1. I would say that the options available have swayed your decision and your statement. We’re always given two choices, and in this case it it between atheism and belief. There is always a third way and you have demonstrated by the way you live that you are an atheist based on the your practices in other realms outside religion. The universe is more complex and energy flows to and fro and through us all. Your perceptions are more attuned to those energies. It is not a god.

  5. I am sticking with there are no gods. Lady on call-in show says, “I don’t understand how anyone can be an atheist.” Show host says, “Okay. Yes, but you did not ask a question. So, I will ask you why you do not understand.” It got interesting after that.

      1. I could have been a good discussion, but it was another one of those things. Her son had brain cancer. He was not treated at all. She prayed and he recovered. And the MRI proved it. Many MRIs, but no treatment…none….right. But lots of MRIs. Did you say honesty? I admire her courage for calling in. But there must be a lot of people who did not get cancer from god, but dang sure got cured by god. With prayer. Groan.

  6. I. Like !

    Some tremendously bright fellow noted this: “… a large body of research demonstrates that the more we lie, and the more we are exposed to the ever-so-delicious lies of others, the uneasiness felt by us in the face of deception weakens (See Neil Garret, et al., 2016, The brain adapts to dishonesty, Nature Neuroscience, 27 September)

    1. We are compelled to believe something, anything will do. Even when we know a person is lying they get a pass. We may talk about their bullshit behind their back, but it’s tolerated time and again. We give the benefit of the slightest doubt and inclined to believe even if it’s just a smidgeon, but religion is all doubt all the time and it perpetuates. The king has no clothes, but saying so costs to much. Better to assimilate

  7. There is a lot out there that is easy to attribute to something spiritual. Or, as you point out, it may be in us rather than “out there.” Like the nostalgia I feel when I think back to the little church we went to with my parents and grandparents. That feeling of comfort and belonging we felt. It took me a long time to realize that it was my family, and the kindness of the people around us, that generated those feelings. Back then, though, I thought it was a religious experience.

    1. I’m thinkin’ that it will just go away on its own. Good point. It took 900 years for the last holdouts on Greek myth to finally quit, but it was replaced with Jesus. What can replace Jesus? Well give em a bone,,

    1. Or even looking for it. I was counseled heavily to not look in such places for satan lurks, waiting to deceive. Besides, why would I look when I already had the truth? TWR (that was rhetorical)

  8. Just the resurrection account alone should be the clincher instead it’s the glue that keeps the rest of the improbable less outlandish.
    While reading your post it occurred to me that people seem infatuated with the notion of why instead of how. This is fundamental to how you approach inquiry. Why requires agency and how requires deconstruction. More likely I’m overthinking. My point is knowing the right question is how to make progress in understanding how the universe and our existence works and everything else.

    1. I had a post a while back about that. They can’t answer why either, but they’ve certainly kept at it. Sure why is easy superficially, but the nuts and bolts of it tear it apart. Like your why question at the end of your posts. That kind of why.
