It turned out I was pretty good in science. But again, because of the small budget, in science class we couldn’t afford to do experiments in order to prove theories. We just believed everything. Actually, I think that class was called Religion. Religion class was always an easy class. All you had to do was suspend the logic and reasoning you were being taught in all the other classes.
- George Carlin

Enlightenment for me is not understanding the world. I believe that when you achieve enlightenment you do not become better than others or surpass them in any way. The first step to enlightenment is to become aware that the world is far more complex than you can ever imagine that is the easy part. After that it is only a matter or acceptance you must accept the fact that you will never be able to understand the world around you. Which is slot easier said than done because it is in our nature to want to find answers. But in order to become enlightened you must accept the fact that you will never know the answer to life’s oldest question.

The biblical account of Noah’s Ark and the Flood is perhaps the most implausible story for fundamentalists to defend. Where, for example, while loading his ark, did Noah find penguins and polar bears in Palestine?
- Judith Hayes
Religion supports nobody. It has to be supported. It produces no wheat, no corn; it ploughs no land. It is a perpetual mendicant. It lives on the labours of others, and then has the arrogance to pretend that it supports the giver.
- Robert G. Ingersoll
It is an old habit with theologians to beat the living with the bones of the dead.
- Robert G. Ingersoll
There is a story, which is fairly well known, about when the missionaries came to Africa. They had the Bible and we, the natives, had the land. They said “Let us pray,” and we dutifully shut our eyes. When we opened them, why, they now had the land and we had the Bible.
- Desmond M. Tutu, “Religious Human Rights and the Bible”
Religion is man trying to define God…Spirituality is God defining himself with us.
So as an atheist, you believe in disappointment, and pain, and science. I can say this because I was an atheist. Looking back now I had faith in more things than I do now since becoming a christian. I trust in God. That’s all.
People fail. Nature fails. Who do we think we are to put the blame on anyone else but ourselves for the mistakes of this world? we blame things that we can’t see…that should speak for itself why we should take responsibility. Christians feel disappointment…more than non- Christians. Trust me, I know. I look heavenward and wonder why all these horrible things happen and feel the deepest sorrow. I also know that God is bigger than this. He is in control. Know why? Because bad things happen, but they never last. There’s always an end. And he promises that in the Bible. It’s very hard to trust in someone you can’t see, but we blame Him for our problems, so deep down we believe that he’s there. Just maybe not someone we would like to worship.
But let’s be serious. He claims to be all good…he claims to love unconditionally, he claims forgiveness forever, so what proof do we actually have that the bad things are his fault? Our own view of him. When bad things happen, I feel the weight of that. It’s MY sin, not God’s. I can sit here and talk to you until I am blue in the face, but you have to experience how God is different for yourself. He asks nothing from you but expects everything. The saddest part of being an atheist is looking around for someone to thank when you are happy, and no ones there, cause you don’t believe. It’s waking up at night and thinking…halfway believing that God exists, just to barely keep existing, but then reminding yourself not to feel, because feelings are bad and fleeting.
Knowing that when you do question the possible existence of God that the next bad thing that happens will make you not believe. Let me tell you, I had more faith then than I do now. I know that it’s the bad things in the past that make you not trust God, or anyone for that matter, but I can tell you that you believe. You believe in yourself. You only trust yourself, and believe that the decisions you make each day, as small as they may be, are the right ones for you. You have your best interest at heart. God is not a feeling. Christianity is not a feeling. It’s a knowledge. It’s a faith practice. I have learned that when I became a Christian I have no rights. I gave up myself to the Lord and what he wants for me.
Even as I am writing this, it sounds crazy. But it works. I learn every day that the Lord’s ways are not our ways. His love is not our love. I do not understand God. He is not to be defined. That is what gives him the most glory is to sit back and say “God I do not know what you are always about, I do not understand you, but you do. I know your bigger than me and my issues. Work your will”.
C.S. Lewis once said ” A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell”. That is so true. When bad things happen, we either run to God, or blame him. And it’s always the God of the Bible, not Allah, or the Dali Llama, or what have you. Deep down we all know he exists. We just deny because for some crazy reason we think we are better.
I am confused about religion…but then again, who isn’t? There is no doubt about it that God is real, and he is the Alpha and the Omega. The confusing part is not in who He is…the confusing part is in how to believe it.
Religion has always been used to explain the unexplainable. As science advances, so the need for religion will diminish until it is obsolete.
Any idealism taken to extremes be it faith, politics or race will always end in bloodshed. Religion has both good and bad points, many of the most inspiring structures in the world owe there existence to religion, the sound of choirs raising there voice to sing give great joy to those who listen. Religion offers solace and support to many in need in need, most of the philosophy on how we should live our lives held within the texts hold true today. The sight of people praying is very calming even if as I do you not believe in any organized faith.
However to believe that religion is the only way one can live a good life is misguided. And the only difference between someone who follows any of the Abrahamic based faiths and a true atheist is one god for those who believe reject all others from Belobog to Zeus and therefore teach us to be intolerant of anyone who does not believe or disbelieve the same as us.
Until we can learn to accept that although we are different in many ways, we are all fundamentally the same. And that shoving your views be they athiest or religous down others throats in the false belief that you are right, as who truly knows? Only causes greater misunderstanding and resentment then we have no hope of tolerance or peace within the world.
Every religion is founded on peace and love…:)
