Well I have had this blog for almost two weeks now and I haven’t made a single post about religion yet. So this is going to be my sole post on the topic. I know there are a million similar posts out there so lets make this a million and one. Please mind that this isn’t a rant on the subject, just a post for those curious about my views.
Now that that is out of the way, I’ll come out and say it. I’m agnostic/atheist. Now, I know this is slightly confusing. I don’t believe in God, or in fact any God. But I am not the type of person to try and make others see my views. I’m not an atheist that goes out of their way to other not believe. I suppose you can call me a soft atheist. Anyways, unlike many others that don’t believe I don’t draw my conclusions from the bible. The bible is simply two Gods holy book. No, to draw my conclusions from the bible would be admitting that another religion may be correct which I don’t believe they are.
I instead look around me, look at science and look at the past. There have been hundreds of religions. Hundreds of them! What makes the one you were born into the correct one? No, instead I believe that mankind needs to believe in something to try and make their place in the universe seem important. You may ask how am I different? How do I stand apart from the religious? I’m not really. I want to have a place in the universe. I want to feel wanted. I want to feel the love everyone else had from their God(s).
Instead, I have close friends, and the realization that we are all minuscule. What makes me special compared to the rest of mankind? Nothing but my memories. And even then to say I’m special would demean someone else’s exist somewhere. We all can’t be special, because the word would then lose it’s meaning.
So we are all the same in the aspect that we are all different.
I know I am getting off topic slightly with that, but it works with my whole statement that people want to feel like they are loved and special because they have a personal love with their God(s) when in reality the only want you can truly be special is to mean something to someone. To hold the love on another will make you special to them.
So in an attempt to bring my conclusion into the form of a sentence, I suppose it would be that man tries desperately to feel wanted, accepted, loved all the time, no matter the circumstance and thus creates the existence of a God being.
I would also like to state I enjoy the teachings of the New Testament. I believe we all have something to learn from the life of Jesus. But I just don’t believe we was a God.
Now I will be waiting for someone to rip my idea’s apart. Go right to town. See how much it bothers me. But if you do, post your convictions. I would want to see what makes you believe your way is right or better than mine.
