THERE IS NO GOD

Religion says that God made us as free beings who could work for him or against him so sin is our fault and not his. They say we cannot freely do good unless we have the power to freely do evil. There cannot be a God for people should not suffer when there is no free choice. Evil is a mistake caused by sickness and they admit that and still they say that we are free which is very vindictive. You cannot freely do evil if it is an illness so there is no free choice. Evil is something to be hated while the perpetrator is to be pitied.
  
We will not bend the knee before the being that regards sickness as punishable and pretends that his brutality is justified. We refuse to join in with people who condone the evil in God and who slander themselves and everybody else with their accusations that all have free will and that we have chosen the evil that befalls us not God. They have to admit they cannot prove free will so what they are doing in making this monstrous accusation is seriously wrong especially when there is no proof for God and therefore no proof that we should be accused of all that to get him off the hook for he might be unreal. For real people to take the blame for the actions of a being that might not be real or loving is truly truly perverse and misanthropic.

I am most sure I exist. I refuse to degrade myself to take the blame for God for that is putting a being whose existence I am not as sure of as my own before my own. When God cannot be put first there is no real point in believing in him or even liking him. If God existed it would be best for me to know him for he is good and he would prove his existence to me just for the sake of fairness. I don’t have the proof so there is no God. To say that God exists is to say, “If I am wrong to ask humanity to take the blame for God, I don't care. I want to believe." That is a very serious insult to all who suffer.
 
Creation could have come from nothing. In this case, it just popped out of nothing uncaused. This seems illogical.
 
Creation could have been made by God out of nothing. This is more illogical. Something popping out of nothing is one thing. But making something out of nothing is an additional problem. It means that creation popped out of nothing and was made out of it at the same time.
 
It is really saying, "God exists and creation popped out of nothing." So it is simpler to settle for accepting that creation just is a brute fact that just popped out of nothing.
 
The big bang happened. It will reverse. Then another big bang may happen. This may have happened countless times. It could be extremely unlikely chance that we have a universe like this that we appeared in which to the untrained eye looks designed. If there are countless big bangs this would be possible.

Even if there is a God, I should not believe in God.
 
SHOW GOD THE DOOR

The person who does things for God or mammon is really doing them for herself or himself. The will does not deliberately choose good or evil but only goes for self-gratification that happens to be good or evil in its results so if there is a God he spitefully wants to see people suffer for the excuse that he lovingly wants us to decide for ourselves between evil and good and it is us who are to blame for evil not him does not wash with reasonable people. To say God is love is to say that spite is loving.

Since I only please myself, there cannot be a God because what use is suffering when everything I do is solely for my pleasing anyway? If he sends suffering so that I may learn to get happier through it then he is not much of a God because he should be able to perfect my happiness with a snap of his fingers. So he must send suffering and make torturing viruses then because he hates seeing me being all for myself but then he made me that way so what right has he to be like that? To say there is a God is to despise the fact that we are naturally and permanently egoistic beings.

God should not let suffering happen because all he has to do when I just care about myself is program me to have desires that produce only good for I am programmed to care only for me anyway. All he has to do to achieve that is to make us completely intelligent the right way for human evil arises wholly from perverted intelligence and stupidity and forgetfulness.

God could have given us stronger genetic tendencies to care for others like he has for so many people. To worship him when he hasn’t done that along with the other dreadful omissions he has made is to practice camouflaged devil-worship and be pro-suffering.

A person’s programming can be changed for the better by the environment we create so that she or he will go after gratification that is wholesome for others as well which explains why some people are good though they used to practice evil.

There is no God and there are no gods for we would be programmed to reject belief in them if they existed and had any decency in them. Life would be hell if they were bad enough to destroy us through our belief in them so they do not exist for life is not hell for most of us.
 
BELIEF IN GOD THRIVES ON LOW SELF-ESTEEM

When you serve God you are doing it to make yourself happy. You are not really serving him at all. The power to be happy lies within yourself and real happiness is won by drawing upon these inner resources for God is a crutch, a crutch manufactured by prayer and trusting in him and serving him, and so is religion. Using God and religion is as abnormal as using crutches when you can walk without them.

Persons making use of God and religion think that they are not strong enough on their own and need supernatural assistance. This is a thought that stems from cynicism about themselves and lack of regard for their abilities and can only be harmful and by implication it makes them cynical about others too and leads to prejudice against everyone and especially unbelievers. You need to change your attitude to life to help yourself and not resort to prayer or magic. And if you need to attach yourself to a perfect God who cannot do wrong then people are not good enough for you.

Belief in God and religion are evils – you must be master of your own psychological destiny. Your subconscious mind is far smarter than you are. It can create books that you read in your dreams. When you refuse to think rationally and carefully you are degrading yourself and the mind knows that on a deep level and the result is anger and fear and guilt which cause every problem in us. You are rebelling against what you are, a person that is meant to be rational, and you are attacking your self-esteem, and self-esteem is the originator of all that is good in humanity. You must harmonise your intellect, your intelligence, with your emotions. The disharmony between your intelligence and your emotions is the origin of all evil and mental sickness of which evil is a manifestation. I’ll get to the point: belief in God donates more strength to evil and any good it has done has taken place in spite of it and not because of it and there would be more good without it.

To value yourself because God values you is really to give God all the value for that is who you are trying to please. That is robbing you of the love you should and can give to yourself and you should value yourself because you see your value. Therefore to think you need God is a serious mistake. To give God the love you could give yourself is an indication of fear so loving God is intrinsically evil as is allowing yourself to be tempted to love him. It is always bad for then you are afraid of God that he will be displeased if you ignore him and you are afraid to love yourself. We know that fear and guilt are the cause of all human evil and are responsible for everything bad that humans have ever done or will do and accordingly the system that sponsors them is asking to be considered responsible for all this suffering and terror. It is unjust discrimination to prefer God to yourself or others or both.
 
WHY IT IS INHUMAN TO CONDONE GOD’S PLAN


If there are good Gods or whatever then why do they create bad viruses and let us suffer?

To suffer to do good is praised by believers but this good is made less good by the fact that you had to suffer to do it. If God made you enjoy helping others better it would be more good, for if it is as good as or better than suffering to do it, God would have no right to let us suffer. But he hasn’t so belief in God implies that happiness is a sin. God is therefore an evil concept. His defenders say that it is better to fight evil to achieve good than to have good on a plate which really means that the suffering is more important than the goal so good is not the goal at all. The process involving evil is better than the goal of goodness. It makes no sense then to say the goal is good. It makes no sense to say that God makes us suffer so that we will be happier to do good in future when he could make us like doing good better than we do right now and forever.

Even to say that the divine allows suffering for a reason is to at least partly approve when people are in anguish. If we denied the existence of God we would see evil as something that should not exist at all full stop. So we should not believe in God. Anybody could enact savage laws saying that God requires them to be observed for a reason only he is aware of. This still happens a lot. We might be able to bring good out of evil but that does not mean the evil should have been allowed to happen. I deny my own dignity when I believe in their God because I know that perfect happiness is my right.
