Is it okay to believe in god?


Of course it’s okay to believe in a god. Belief is a very personal and private thing, and I’m unsure I could contrive a condition under which it must, or could, be controlled.

When one externalizes a belief and creates consequence as a result, the consequence and the belief will be examined.

All that is rather obvious. My point is the belief is immaterial. It matters not if five billion people believe in the one true gluten free flying spaghetti monster. Endless logical, philosophical, and scientific wanderings to argue or demonstrate the existence or nonexistence of such a tasty deity are completely barren.

I suggest the consequence of a belief is the only actionable aspect of that belief. Positive effects and desirable outcomes will result from the exercise of reasoned and compassionate influence on the negative consequences of theism, or any other system beliefs.

Unfortunately, I also believe achieving an indisputable proof of the existence of the one true gluten free flying spaghetti monster is currently a less onerous tasks than accomplishing what I suggest.

I want to express my appreciation for a post by one4reason. The question at hand was raised in God, Time, and Space, and that prompted my thinking for this piece.Thank you, one4reason.

Exodus 11:4-6

{11:4} And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:
{11:5} And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that [is] behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
{11:6} And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

DarkMatter2525 created a wonderfully humorous, satirical video, Perfect Double Standard examining the hypocrisy of god’s morality. You’ll find more of excellent work like this in the YouTube playlist God & Jeffery.

People Believe this Drivel? I Fail to Understand the Intellectual Laziness


I’m unsure why it surprises me that someone holding a bible can create ridiculously fallacious propositions and the masses of believers believe it because that’s what the believers do. Sorry. I just thought that needed silly phrasing.

We now have a new christian scientific process. The beauty of it is that anyone can be a scientist. Minimal or no training is required, and intelligence is completely optional. It works like this:

Some whacko holds a bible in one hand and tells an audience of the faithful early man had dinosaur petting zoos. New absolute truth and scientific fact created.

If you’d like to laugh at the serious subject matter at hand, and much more, I highly recommend the YouTube channel of DarkMatter2525. It’s all animated, all hilarious, and all on point. I’m a huge fan of God & Jeffery.

Exodus 4:21

{4:21} And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.

god will not permit Pharaoh to obey his command.

Pharaoh, predictably, fails to comply.

Spoiler alert: god murders many.

The Dixie Flatline post discusses Bob Hutton’s view of this passage. It’s worth a pass through. I believe it provides a look at mainstream gone cult.
