Religion is downright scary and borders on blackmail.
Most religions have the fear thing rampant in their sect.
Excommunication. If you didn't do what the priest said, He would tattle to God and make sure you never got introduced.
Limbo. A concept downright mean. Poor babies that have to float around, forever I guess, because of not being baptized because of death. Since this wacked out concept was invented 2,000 years ago, that's a lot of astral poop.
Food restrictions. If you eat pork or beef, depending on what religion of course, once again, you're on God's shit list.
That's a lot of I don't love you and you're not my kid, anymore, because you didn't follow these rules.
I wish humanity would let God out of his tiny box that is composed of NO's.
The pursuit of knowledge has made even the most primitive bumpkin a god compared to a caveman.
So why hasn't religion grown right along side of science?
We're talking about 2,000 year old information, here.
There seems to be three types of reactions to conversations about religion:
People that like to speculate about a God that is not categorized by a brand name of a religion.
Those that are robots of their religion and that regard conversation about that subject about as interesting as talking about toothpaste.
And seemingly intelligent people that turn feral, thinking that questions mean that you're on the opposite team.
I thrive on finding out cool stuff about God!
The reason I can prove that it is actually God stuff, is that I haven't heard of humans that can make black holes, planets, LIFE!
Why doesn't everyone explore what that Jesus dude was trying to tell us?
Not that sappy crappy card kind.
The kind where if your buddy pisses you off, you forgive him. Or the sweetness of a baby's smile.
The part of the information he was trying to impart to a deaf world that thrilled me was where he said we could be just like him.
Teleporting, walking across water, healing people, turning water into wine!
And God's ultimate show of love – reincarnation, totally proved by that young kid from Israel.
He was born with a horizontal red mark on his forehead, told his mother that was where his head had been hacked by an axe, told Mom his previous name, took her to where the axe was buried, showed her where his previous body was buried and took her to his killer, who confessed.
That has got to convince the most hard hearted skeptic.
So folks, That's MY kind of God.
One that gives you a do-over.
Everyone has seen some version of 'The Day The Earth Stood Still'.
They showed up and told humanity either stop blowing each other up, or WE'LL blow you up, or send you back to the stone ages.
O.K. I'm a dreamer!
We know if aliens showed up, they'd be on the autopsy table badda bo, badda bing.
I'm sure that after viewing the Roswell Incident, our planet has to be on a, 'If You Land Here You're Bat Shit Crazy List.'
I think that when man was scarce on this lovely planet, the aliens came here as a vacation spot, or for scientific research.
Now, I think the visiting aliens are either rebellious teen aliens who like to flirt with death, or intergalactic bookies, watching the insanity that's going on, and taking bets as to when the idiots in charge succeed in killing all of humanity and this gorgeous planet.
You do know, don't you, that our leaders and their dedication to war are a real buzzkill for interactions with the aliens?
Who wouldn't want to zip through a couple of time warps and be home in time for dinner?
I know what you're thinking. I don't want no stinking anal probes the aliens love to give you.
Hmmm. But -
I heard that over 70% percent of people now believe in UFO's.
I think that anyone who pays ANY attention to our news – however slanted – knows that our situation is becoming Code Red.
Damn you Aliens!
