Let’s talk about God and Religion today…

What or Who’s God?

Let’s go back in time..

Early man: no science.. None whatsoever.. No fancy car, no dishwasher, no
electronics, not even table-chair! He’s hunting, and surviving..

Imagine yourself as the dumbest person on this planet.. You see the morning
sky and see the sun, what do u think? Wow! I can’t see that.. That’s one hell of
a bright light.. You look at it in awe as it sets and rises! It’s warmth
energizes you after cold night..

You see rain.. Thunder clouds.. How do u feel? U feel scared.. If you are
having a hard time imagining, think of your childhood.. Weren’t you afraid of
thunder and lightening?

Of course! It’s suppose to scare you.. It’s how evolution of brain has
happened! Being scared of loud noise! It gives u an impulse to protect
yourself.. Go inside a cave or something..

But then you ask yourself, who was “shouting”?? Was he angry or something??
Exactly what this early man used to think.. And they name him GOD!!

Early man couldn’t understand all the mysteries of the universe.. Why that
“bright light” kept coming up and going down, why the burning heat during
summers, why the freezing cold during winters, why the fierce rain during
monsoons, etc..

WHO was controlling these things after all!!! (Oh and that WHO isn’t World
Health Organization)

So, they ASSUMED, that there was this superpower, a master, the controller
who had created them..

C’mon!! They didn’t have geography lessons to tell ’em that the earth is
round and it’s the 3rd planet from the Sun, the so called “bright-light”! Nobody
told them about solar systems, air compositions, biology, chemistry,
electricity! Poor guys!

What do u do when you see a nice and interesting thing you donno about? You
make up a story! You make assumptions! You make discoveries and you invent your
discoveries!

So God was created!

What does this guy look like? Ooh he’s definitely a man!! Look at him roar
(thunderstorms) when he’s angry!! What language does he speak?? “God knows”!

So now we have a God, who looks like a human, and supposedly a male, and he
commands all of Nature (the wind, water, earth, sun, etc.)

One MAN!! GOD!! MALE!! THAT’S IT!!

NAH!!! Not liking.. Let’s add a female.. That poor guy can’t do everything on
his own!! This GUY should have a wife, some sons and daughters, a ministry, blah
blah!

What’s this!! EVOLUTION!!

A man’s opinion is a product of his surrounding.. So I don’t doubt that while
cave men thought their Gods lived in caves, kings and emperors thought their
Gods lived in palaces!

So as society developed, religious men also thought that even god has some
society or ministry kinda thing.. Lets make one take care of wind, one for
water, one for earth, one for food, one for this and one for that! WOW!! SO MANY
GODS!!

So as man evolved, concept of God evolved.. Until recently.. I’ll come to
that soon..

Let’s talk about RELIGION!

Early man: hunters. Killing, and feeding! How disgusting, you’d say! No
manners!! Sorry to say, but they didn’t have moral science class those days..

But then came this “thinker” who thought, that we are under the command of
god! So this “thinker” guy is now our moral science teacher for all around
him/her. And I assume this moral science teacher is old.. Else he wouldn’t have
many listeners, now would he!! Who listens to a stupid young fellow!! c’mon!
he’s soooo young!! Yeah you get it.. This guy’s old.. And maybe, just maybe, he
has some nice hallucinations, because of scientific causes we know affecting
old! But who’s gonna tell the other people that this guy needs a hospital and
not an audience!!

But anyways amidst his hallucinations, he tells wonderful stories.. He
teaches the young people the meaning of life! He tells about God.. Everything
that he thinks is positive

These stories are carried forward.. And as they are carried forward, they are
modified.. And you have no idea to what wonderful spicy substances are added to
it!! I call it the best cooked recipe!

So we now have a story, and a moral science book for those hooligans who are
not moral..

This is actually how empires spread.. This concept of religion was a
brilliant idea to make uncivilized humans, civilized!! It was ingenuity of the
human brain to devise such a fabulous masterpiece to make humans what they were
to human what they became.

But THEN things changed!

WHY?

‘Cause there wasn’t only one psychotic “thinker”!! There were more!! All over
the surface of Earth!! And as explained in my last blog, communities met, there
was a collision of beliefs! And this resulted in wars, superior-inferior
duality, etc.!

So, now not only were humans fighting, but even Gods were! Say for example,
let’s have a death match between Allah and Ram! Yeah right! Hilarious! Next
round with Jesus perhaps..!

God and Religion in Present society..

After discovery of science, all those unsolvable mysteries (like, what if we
fall from the edge of the earth?) were solved! Humans realized it wasn’t God who
was controlling things at His bidding.. There were scientific proper reasons to
things that happened around us.. Why rain fell, why sun is so bright a light,
etc. etc…

BUT.. GOD remained.. WHY? Because the stories are wonderful and grannies love
telling nice stories to startle the young newborn’s mind!! And religious stories
somehow make the best bedtime stories! And why not.. Even in school perhaps!!
After all it was “THE INGENIOUS IDEA” that made uncivilized, civilized.. Now who
wants their children to be uncivilized!! Not me! So tell the best story ever
made!! God and Religion!

What’s God’s purpose now?

Apart from mental solace, God has now become, what I call, the
“external-Parent”.

What’s that???? 😮

Read on.. Next blog soon..;)
