The Futility of the God Question from JasinElric's blog




Is there a God? If there is a God, which religion is right? Which religion best defines my values? Is Monotheism the best option? Could one single being really have created everything that exists? Is this God all knowing, omnipotent, omnipresent, and loving? What if He’s as bad as the Atheists say He is? Do I truly agree with this God’s moral law, and if not, would it be best for me to restrict myself to it anyway?


 


Are alternative religions a more practical choice, with all the conflict between “The Big Three” religions? Perhaps Buddhism, there are no Gods, but do I entirely agree with the philosophy? Maybe Wicca, there are several Gods, but is deification of natural occurrences explained by most of modern science any more rational or practical? How can I be sure any religion at all is of any benefit to me?


 


In this year of 2014, the above are but a handful of questions which most individuals ask themselves before ascribing to an organized religion. The general motivation behind seeking answers to such unknown questions is an inherent blank spot in the human psyche. As inquisitive creatures by nature, we need to have an answer, whether the answer be true or not, whether we believe it or not. No question must ever be without answer.


 


In this day in age, perception of truth is more important than truth itself; and it is precisely, for this very reason, that The God Question is futile.


 


Politics and religion go together like balls and a nutsack, you simply cannot have one without the other. Many would argue that the sole purpose behind the creation of organized religion was political, while others might argue the reverse. Regardless of order or effect, the “Chicken or the Egg” question remains up for debate, however; the presence of a connection between religion and politics is undeniable.


 


It’s easy to get caught in the shit-kicking web of political and religious debate, whether it be friendly conversation, social media wars, or drunkard bar-fighting. As the saying goes, “Opinions are like assholes, everyone’s got one.” Conflict is part of the natural order of the world, however; there is a crucial flaw in the arguments presented by most who engage in such controversial topics, and that is the separation of religion and politics.


 


In our Attention Deficit Disorder fueled world, whenever a religious or moral topic flashes before us, we knee-jerkingly respond in kind with our either agreeable, or disagreeable views on religion and morality; the same is true of our political and ideological views. We know that religion and politics go together, but when either subject come to the plate we keep them well separated, like macaroni and mashed potatoes.


 


Unfortunately, for the poor, fussy consumer, the reality is that there are no separate portions in this dish. In fact, there is no dish at all. With a sourly scrunched face, the common human drinks deep the magnificent Religipolie Smoothie, profoundly exclaiming delight in it’s flavor and how easily their taste buds can separate the ingredients, to such an extent that they deny it’s a smoothie at all. Everything has a place, and everything in it’s place.


 


No. There are no religions, there are no politics, there’s only the Smoothie. Religion is the recruiting tool for politics, and politics are what drive people to their religion. One may not have one without the other. They may comprise of different parts, but they form to make the same, single product. We’re expected to pick a product and stand by it till death. In the midst of all the strife in the name of which Smoothie is the best, does The God Question even retain relevance?


 


The times of ruminating the existence of the supernatural are ever dwindling, and those of preponderance and power in all the scattered fields of thought no longer even give a shit. It’s all about how many people agree, how many people will devote themselves. It’s about Earthly affairs, neither Heavenly nor Infernal. From the Vatican to Jerusalem to Mecca, to Buddha’s poopie-stained Chougu, the leading Religipolie distributors have long since abandoned the idea of pondering the validity of promise in their recipe books; it’s a shame that so few individuals follow suit. Pondering has turned to pandering, and no one seems to notice.


 


Pick a God, any God; it doesn’t matter if there’s no Gods, just pick a side and fight for it. Lean to your Left, lean to your Right, try to keep a balance in the middle, it doesn’t matter as long as you don’t fall over! Grab a Religipolie Smoothie and share it with everyone, force feed it if you must! Live for it, and die for it! Anyone who disagrees is wrong, and it’s your duty as a Smoothian to set them straight!

My question is; If there is a God or are there any Gods ? Is he/she/them trying to communicate with me or do I have to search him/she/it/them ? maybe he/she/it/they don't give a damn about me. Is a God or a Deific Mask, Demon or Daemon a projection of the mind based on your own "FREE WILL" ? Is it/he/she an internal energy or external or both ? Well if you practice black magic it doesn't matter what the source IS, the important factor is that you do it and throw your will,believe imagination and action, that you will succeed and see the results. Well I believe that I am my own God and I can use the attributes of the Gods,demons,Nephilim,sigils,symbols and so on to empower my will which is the true essence of the black flame within even known as mind power.My question is; If there is a God or are there any Gods ?

My suggestion in this blog is that in the grand scope of human societies, the answers to any such questions, whether valid or not are immaterial. The one's providing the answers are the ones busy vying for domination while we scrutinize the claims of their books. This is not to say that these claims merit no scrutiny, only that The God Question is irrelevant regarding our functioning societies.My suggestion in this blog is that in the grand scope of human societies, the answers to any such questions, whether valid or not are immaterial.

I think we exchanged God for a religion. The religious symbols and myths lost their meaning, they no longer speak to the human psyche. Religion became commercialized. Moreover, people focus more on the external forms like the behavior of the hierarchy, rituals, religious icons, the rules instead on what is the most important in every religion: personal relationship with God/Gods leading to gnosis and the inner change which lets an initiate achieve divinity. Didn't Jesus say: "You are gods!"? Unfortunately, most of the religious people are lost in the petty details.I think we exchanged God for a religion.

I think individuals who venture into any systematic belief invariably become entwined in one agenda or another. It's those unable, or unwilling to separate themselves from their ideas who fall prey to those placing bids on their devotion.

I like your perspective. It is something I have not arrived at by myself, yet it is agreeable to me. Or at least worthy of consideration, for contrasting with my belief.

I don't know much about Wicca, that I will admit, though most of opening was rhetorical.
