The Heathen Speaks

I don't believe in God.

There you go, I've said it. No fuss, no fluff, no long-winded blathering. I do not think that any god, Christian or otherwise, exists. As far as I'm concerned, there is just too much evidence to the contrary.

As far as I'm concerned, Darwin's theories together with recent scientific discoveries are the truth. They make much more sense than a bunch of parables and stories with conflicting hidden meanings. They have the one thing that the Bible does not to back it up. Proof. There is absolutely no evidence to suggest that any of the amazing miracles performed in the Bible ever happened.
Parting the Red Sea? Oh please.
Banishing demons? I think not.
And as for resurrecting the dead? Well, that speaks for itself doesn't it.
Not meaning to sound disrespectful, and please don't think I'm trying to be offensive, I'm not. However, no-one can deny that, bluntly, the Bible really just doesn't make sense. The things "God" says contradict each other: "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" and "Forgive everyone everything" for example. I just can't believe in something that doesn't have it's facts straight.

Also, I'm sorry, but the world is far too screwed up. If God really cared, would he have let people suffer like this? Murder, corruption, rape, genocide, torture and a thousand other ills infest our world. If God is supposed to rule everything, why doesn't he do something? Where's this great and powerful love everyone says he posseses? He doesn't seem to care much now does he?

So, that's my opinion. You can hate me for it, but it's how I feel. I don't seek to dissuade you from believing, if that's what you want, fine.

It's just my view. It doesn't matter that much, does it?

The heathen has spoken. Thank you.

The End
