“It’s been found via brain scans that God and the ego occupy the same region of the brain.
God is just the invention of the berserk human imagination. No matter how much imagination you use to conjure him up, no matter how articulate you are in advancing your arguments for him, that’s all he’ll ever be. A puppet show, where god is the puppet, and the animation is all the work and contrivance of man.
Easy proof – once the puppeteers for all the various gods that have been conjured up have left the building, their gods just lie there lifeless in the gutter of the road from the past into the future.
Just a curiosity of anthropology.
No puppeteers – no god. Pull on all the strings with all the art and grace and sophistication and delight in your craft that you are able to muster. While they move, the effect is often compelling.
But there is no god. All there ever has been is the various puppet shows, and often the most successful ones have resulted in murder, human and animal misery, torture and death.
Tragically, it’s still going on today, despite a beautiful swathe of better ideas.
And in the big tug-of-war for the heart of mankind, you’re pulling in the same direction as the suicide bombers and the abusing priests and the “send us all your money” evangelists.
Think harder. Wake up.”
