I Now Believe in God

God is suing those who don’t believe.

God is known for his disdain for the unbeliever, but now, because a credit reporting agency’s refusal to accept (on faith) the name ‘God’ in its computer system, he has taken legal action!

God, more specifically, God Gazarov, seen in the LinkedIn photo above, isn’t going to stand for this kind of blasphemy (and yes, God has a LinkedIn profile). I’m sure his LinkedIn profile claims endless, or should I say, eternal work experience.

Blacks and Atheism

WHY ARE MOST BLACK AMERICANS RELIGIOUS?


  eric-ga – by @GodsAutopsyCom last updated 5/29/2015

I’ll concede that I don’t really know why most black Americans are still so religious, but I have a good idea. I can’t read minds, but speaking from experience, I had personally remained a theist for most of my life because of a lack of education in science and philosophy in school. Without a scientific explanation for the creation of the Universe, children will certainly fill in the gaps, carrying religious myths into adulthood as if they were undisputed facts.

Many African-Americans, along with a large percentage of the country, are science illiterate.

Nearly half of Americans, at 42%, don’t believe in evolution (gallup 2014). The Big Bang, dark matter and being cousins with fish are unimaginable absurdities to a fundamentalist, and most black Christians certainly are fundamentalists (or Biblical creationists). I don’t think we can credit tradition, the civil rights movement, cultural pressures or political influences. I think it’s because of science illiteracy. Science and philosophy are not respected, virtually all of life’s vital quandaries go ‘in God’s hands’. There’s an overused expression, ‘let go, and let God’, which is perfectly counterproductive.

The Bible is a first addition science textbook in the homes of many Christians, including the majority of African-American homes. I was raised in black communities and know firsthand the impact religion has on black people’s lives. Religion isn’t merely a source for comfort or spirituality, it’s life’s instruction manual.

Most children in public schools, especially those in the inner city, don’t get a proper exposure to the kind of science that will challenge biblical creation myths. If the majority of black people in America are biblical literalists, then the majority of black teachers could be as well. What happens when teachers don’t believe in Big Bang cosmology, ‘old-Earth’ geology or Darwinian evolution? Can you expect them to objectively teach such subjects to students, subjects they may not respect, understand or may find harmful to faith? If you reject theories that are true, it’s likely you never understood them in the first place.

One of my HS biology teachers told the class that evolution means our bodies may keep getting weaker and smaller, while our brains and eyes keep getting bigger, hence the typical big-headed aliens we’ve seen in the media. I think he may have really believed this theory, but that was the extent of his evolutionary lectures, including the extent of my HS evolutionary education.  Although we were taught that humans migrated out of Africa in grade school, I’m sure most of us thought the migrators were Noah’s descendants. This was before everyone had the internet. I think I may have learned more about science from movies and TV than I ever did in school.

Myth is probably the greatest oppressor to blacks in the U.S.

Many black atheists have deconverted from creationism through college or the internet, but to actually cripple the current zeitgeist, science teachers in black schools need to be objective and secular. If they are devout creationists, that’s not going to happen. An ideal atheist group supports exposing children to the science that they may not be getting at school, while of course teaching children how to think, not what to think. With 42% of Americans rejecting evolution, theist teachers have either been winning, or objective teachers have been losing.

It’s time to take the wheel from black religious ‘leaders’, they’ve had their chance, and they aren’t really helping the community. Fiction artists such as Al Sharpton are only pacifying the myth of disenfranchisement and white supremacy in America. Blind faith in fairy tales is the biggest oppressor to our nation as a whole.

Hitchens Unreleased 2005 Italian Interview

I’m just hearing about this video, but oh well, here it is. Christopher Hitchens had a theory on why George W. Bush seemed idiotic at times and intelligent in others, a theory that you will seriously want to look into.

Scalpel to the Scriptures vol 03

Scalpel to the Scriptures: Vol 3

Last time, I covered the Bible’s Genesis chapter 1 verses 16-25, this week:

Genesis 1:25-31, and Genesis 2:1-25

STTS Archive | Previous | Next


 @GodsAutopsyCom

Genesis Chapter 1 – verses 25-31 (KJV)

25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. –  If God made the garden a paradise, I guess there would be no bee stings, no bites, no animal attacks for Adam.

God creates lions, bears, alligators, why, so they can kill their prey but can’t kill Adam? If Adam cannot die, then lions either become tame around him, or the bites and scratches do nothing, or both. Adam can swim to the bottom of the ocean or climb Mount Everest as well I guess. Adam, though naked, was the world’s first Superman?

Animals do not appear designed, rather they appear adapted to either attack or avoid each other. Some animals have sharp teeth and claws for a reason, and if you’re a creationist, it’s because Yahweh intended for them to live in a world meant for cruelty, NOT paradise.

You see, Yahweh planned the fall of man scenario; he lustfully anticipated it. If the bible were true, and there was no sin punishment, people would STILL be wondering why Yahweh is so cruel to animals and insects, forcing them to be killed, kill or be eaten alive in the wild. I can’t imagine Yahweh designing wolves, vultures and hyenas as vegans. If Yahweh created wildlife for survival, it’s because he anticipated “the fall”. Moving on…

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. – Remember, the bible doesn’t know about germs or bacteria. Allegory or not, there is no excuse for forgetting the microscopic which do not all “creepeth upon the earth”. God never was science literate.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. – One could say that this is a contradiction, as it states here that God created man and woman first, then restates the creation of woman later. I’ll have to look into it.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. – Sounds like God is advocating a vegan diet.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. – We now see that Adam and Eve existed on the sixth day. The elaboration of or contradictory creation of Eve is a well-known issue for Genesis. Not looking good Yahweh.


Genesis Chapter 2 (KJV)

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. – I can concede that Genesis chapter 1 used ‘heaven’ and ‘heavens’ interchangeably, however, there is still no mention of other planets, celestial bodies or galaxies. The term ‘heavens’, used here in Genesis 2:1 doesn’t seem to indicate many physical objects in or beyond the sky, but rather seems merely aesthetic.

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. – Again, God needs to rest after making everything in the solar system, yet, he can make all the galaxies in the universe in just one day. When you compare the two, this would be insane if you’re taking the term ‘rest’ literally. If there’s nothing God can’t do, then certainly fatigue is one of them. 

Not a big deal??  According  to http://www.physics.org/ there are “at least one hundred billion galaxies in the observable universe.”

Our insignificant galaxy is a mere “120,000 light-years across” (universetoday.com). That means that light would take 120,000 years to travel from one end to the other. Light travels so fast, 670 million mph, in fact, that light “could go around the Earth 7.5 times in one second” (space.com)

Why is this important? A typical galaxy, like ours, has hundreds of billions of stars (NASA). That’s one hundred billion galaxies, that we know of, typically with over 100 billion stars, all created in one day, for the purpose of lighting up our nights and helping us farm! Yahweh doesn’t get tired after creating endless galaxies, but gets tired after creating the solar system?! We have methods of understanding our universe, and God is, shall we say, many light-years behind science.

http://www.esa.int/ estimates that there are over 1021 , or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (sextillion) stars in the observable universe. That’s perhaps one sextillion solar systems, as a star will attract gas and dust to orbit it. Also, the sun is an example of an “average” star, but is about one million times bigger than Earth. Imagine a universe containing so much mass and energy, wasted on Iron Age peasants as harvest indicators. Peasants who wouldn’t ever know what a galaxy, star or planet was. It sure takes a lot of “faith” to be an atheist.

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. – Work hard and then rest, because even God needs a breather. Yeah right. I think God worked himself to death, literally, that’s why there are no more miracles.

These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 

And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. – I thought God made man already. hmmm

But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. – Even if one conceded this point to be a re-telling of man’s creation, just more detailed this time, why the confusing chronology?

And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. – Paradise, think again, tend to your garden boy!

And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. – Yes, put the good and evil tree in the garden. Foreknowing of the suffering and pain it will certainly cause, doesn’t matter, that’s God’s plan.

10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; – ?

12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. – ?

13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. – ?

14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. – “Worketh man! What? Did you really think paradise would be ‘paradise’?! Silly Adam.” – God

It seems as though God hadn’t the slightest intention for man to stay on and enjoy life on Earth. That the purpose of all earthly life was to toil and seek the afterlife. The story of Adam and Eve, as you will see, is the perfect example of unfairness and immorality. Keep reading and I will explain.

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. – The first time God said, “do what I say, or I will punish and spite you to no end, never forgiving you or your offspring!”. The most important thing to God is that you take him very, very seriously, no matter what.

18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. – There should be a sports bar named An Help Meet.

19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. – If Yahweh were a real thing, he would only want ignorant believers. I guess God brought forth wombats, kangaroos, elephants, naked mole rats, fish from the bottom of the ocean, turtles from the Galapagos Islands, gorillas etc, you get the picture, to come and be named by Adam. No, not likely. What submarine or Skype call did God use to bring every creature to Adam? Did this naming session take place over years (before the an help meet)?

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. – Adam longed for an help meet for help for his unhelped meat (I couldn’t resist).

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; – For God could not therefore create Eve out of the ground separately from Adam, no, she must be made of his very flesh, a twin? I’m guessing she shares his DNA extracted from the rib. And all this time we thought Adam and Eve’s children were the first incestuous breeders, Adam and Eve were twin sister and brother. It sure takes a lot of “faith” to be an atheist, huh Frank Turek? (I’ve tweeted this post to you)

22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. – And if Adam had a mirror he’d have said, “She sure looks like me with boobs!”

Meanwhile the best mirror Adam has is his reflection in the water, man will have to invent everything on his own, starting with the names of every species of animal on the planet (or “kind”). Oh wait, too bad Adam never wrote these names down, in fact, we’re still discovering new species all the time (pardon me, re-discovering them). Thanks a lot Adam.

A New York Times article (link here) states there are as many as 8.7 million species on the planet (plus or minus 1.3 million). But how many “kinds”? Ray Comfort would argue that evolution isn’t true because we don’t see one species morphing into another every 5 years, however, there IS evidence of animals which have great difficulty successfully mating with and producing offspring with each other. It’s called a speciation event. (more on speciation: http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/article/evo_42)

It’s possible for a lion and tiger to mate and produce offspring, with the offspring being called a liger. That’s not a joke. I promise to come back and blog about ligers, speciation and evolution in the future. I’ll post a link here.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. – You are therefore unequally yoked my son, unless you marry your twin sister. – God

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. – And Adam & Eve were both the first incestuous, unmarried, cohabitating, nudist, libertarian, virgin, illiterate, camping, twin couple on the planet. Also, at what point were they actually “married” (“the man and his wife”)?

I’m silently struggling to keep my “faith” in atheism strong.  I don’t know if it’s because of the prayers, or this dang ol book! Haha, “science”, who needs it?! To be an atheist takes so much faith and rebellion after all. 

As for Frank Turek, author of “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist”, that’s a total straw man of the atheist position, I’m not sure you realize it. To believe in something invisible, THAT takes faith.

I hope there are Christians reading this, and I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks! Come back next week for more Genesis.

Scalpel to the Scriptures Vol 02

Scalpel to the Scriptures: Vol 2

Every week I will be posting annotations to holy scriptures. Last week, I covered the Bible’s Genesis chapter 1, verses 1-15, this week will be verses 16-25.


 @GodsAutopsyCom

Bible: Genesis Chapter 1 – verses 16-25 (KJV)

16 Then God made the two great lights, the brighter light to rule the day, and the smaller light to rule the night. So I guess “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night” (Gen 1:14) is about stars. Funny that God would make all the stuff of the universe before making our solar system, but to each god his own.

17 God put them in the open space of the heavens to give light on the earth, – The moon is described as merely a round lamp for the night. If anyone can find a place in the bible that predicts the moon as lifting the tides, please let me know. In any case, the author doesn’t seem to describe the moon as anything more than a light.

18 to rule the day and the night. He divided the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

19 There was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.

20 Then God said, “Let the waters be full of living things. Let birds fly above the earth in the open space of the heavens.”

21 God made the big animals that live in the sea, and every living thing that moves through the waters by its kind, and every winged bird after its kind. And God saw that it was good. – Guys like Ray Comfort love to say ‘kind’ instead of ‘species’. They get it from the bible, which is to them, a more viable and reasonable textbook, appropriate for science classes.

22 God wanted good to come to them, saying, “Give birth to many. Grow in number. Fill the waters in the seas. Let birds grow in number on the earth.” – God forgot to say, let pain come to them, eat each other, hunt each other, live in fear everyday. Watch a National Geographic documentary to learn of God’s mercy for all the cute little animals out there.

23 There was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. – Because God only needed one day to create all the stars, matter and stuff of the universe, but it took an entire day to create the animals for Earth?

24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring into being living things after their kind: Cattle and things that move upon the ground, and wild animals of the earth after their kind.” And it was so. – Let not monkeys give birth to horses (proof of God).

25 Then God made the wild animals of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every thing that moves upon the ground after its kind. And God saw that it was good. – God sees everything as ‘good’, until he makes the one thing he claims to love the most: humans. Humanity seems to disappoint God more than anything he’d ever created. I guess God either messed up when he made us, he can’t control us, or he made us flawed on purpose so that he’d have someone to torture, and God loves torture – see blogs; “Does God Play Favorites“, “God-Given Free Will Debunked” and “The Problem of Evil Explained“.
