Honestly, I am intrigued by how proclaimed atheists think
I understand that it is very hard to believe that we were sent to this earth to live in misery and then get punished some more afterwards by what religions call a “merciful” G-d.
I understand the need to feel that we have some of our own power and the opposition to putting all of one’s faith in a power other then themselves.
I understand the discrepancies that exist within organized religion that might make someone uncomfortable with the entire movement.
I understand the need to incorporate tangible reality, like science and history, into the concept of life as we know it as well as what is not known.
I understand the need to dismiss the idea of a Being that we can’t see that we are to be submissive to.
I understand the idea that it may appear that humans may have concocted the entire idea of a “God” in order to maintain control of the masses.
I understand that religions tend to dismiss obvious realities (dinosaurs, evolution, big bang theory, the age of the earth etc..) based on Biblical teachings and that just does not make sense.
But what I don’t understand is how atheists come to a solid conclusion that there is no such thing as The Life Force of the Universe…..
How can a person be so sure that there is not an original, a first and only one force (energy) in the Universe that ALL OF US came from.
This theory does not contradict reason in anyway.
This theory is not the same as the unreasonable description of G-d that religions want us to buy into. (King in the sky with a scepter and ready to punish)
This theory does not insist that we must think that we were sent to this earth to live in misery and then get punished some more afterwards by what religions call a “merciful” G-d. This theory actually implies that we are part of everything and misery must not have been intended…..Accordingly, there must be another reason why we feel misery and suffering (hint…..see the part about quantum physics below).
This theory does not take away the fact that we have our own power. In fact, according to this theory everyone’s power has the same source and, therefore, the same potential power.
This theory cannot have a discrepancy that would undermine it, because there is no reason that this cannot be possible……in fact the discrepancies within organized religion are due to the fact that the ancient text is misunderstood and we interpret ourselves as separate from the whole.
This theory clearly incorporates tangible reality, like science and history, due to the fact that history constantly repeats itself (there is nothing new under the sun) and science (quantum physics) has come to the point where quantum physicists have come to the conclusion that “reality” is relative to perspective.
This theory does not imply that there is a “Being” that is not seen but must be submitted to. “Submission” would not be what we would do to serve something that we are a part of. In order to “serve” something we are a part of, we will push for the evolution of the whole – for our own benefit. In other words, would it be considered “subservient” if we were to put all of our effort into a business that we are a partner of in order for it to succeed optimally?
This theory negates the idea that humans may have concocted the idea of a G-d to control the masses, because if we are able to accept the theory of One….(we are all part of a whole) we no longer need to control the masses.
This theory does not dismiss tangible reality (dinosaurs, evolution, big bang theory, age of the earth etc…). It allows all experience to exist, but also allows for different interpretations of experience based on perspective.
You may say that I am an atheist since I attribute everything to something other than the traditional concept of God.
I will respond by saying that, in my opinion, The Life Force of the Universe (energy) is God – and God has a purpose for us…since God was the Creator of us.
Furthermore, if we allow the energy of the Universe to lead us to our survival…..like it does everything else (animals, plants etc..), we will be able to rid ourselves of worry and fear – which is what plants and animals do not suffer from. (animals do not think about fear…they just flee from danger when it is sensed).
If we can take this theory one step further and accept the fact that the Energy of the Universe must have a way of communicating with us……can you imagine how comforting life could be?
And please explain to me why you don’t even want God to exist.
Because if my definition of God (energy) did not exist…..you wouldn’t either.
