IS GOD REAL? Thomas Jefferson:
With the story of “The Tree of Knowledge” God proclaims knowledge is against his Divine Will. The religious claim that science and knowledge are evil and inherently bad for society. All the great sciences work in harmony and discover new and astounding facts in every field daily except one…is God real or not? ? I do not think God appreciates being studied as Jefferson proclaims.
Imagination leads to discovery and opens more doors that require the imagination to walk through first, before fact finding can ensue. Facts open more doors for imagination this ever expanding the endless bounds of science and of Gods religious domains. Science will simply NEVER catch up with God however.
Religion lives in fear of their God and in imagination, magic, superstition and mythology found in the Bible, all of which have nothing to do with science or fact finding. So why…do the religious throughout history fear the discoveries of science? Do they think that science will someday eradicate the home of God in the imagination of the mind?
Is ignorance God’s Devine plan for man? Is Religion afraid of science because it may eventually unearth God? In truth and in fact, ignorance will never be eradicated and therefore neither will God. Ignorance seems to be the religious instrument of proof of God and ignorance must therefore be protected because ignorance is limitless as is God, imagination and the Universe.
Religion believes in…anything that is not based in fact. Religion can’t believe in science or fact, professing a belief in faith only, as presented biblically. Millions of books have been written of new discoveries and modifying understanding of the old. But religion holds fast to a belief that has not made any changes in thousands of years, proclaiming that they “already know all that there is to know on earth” and only one book is needed…only one book should be allowed into existence or taught in schools.
Belief and Blind Faith live in “not KNOWING anything”. If there were any true and real facts in religion…instead of just imagination and stories of mythology…there would be no need for faith or belief…there would be only the “FACT OF GOD”…and not the Belief IN God.
What if religion would have worked with science instead of persecuting great men such as Galileo or hanging men like Giordano Bruno or book burning everything of science they could find killing those that wrote them. Would God now be gone…or even greater?
Heresy and blasphemy also live in the imagination along with God. Impalement and roasting is truth in fact. Why did (does) religion with God perpetuate ignorance, stupidity and lack of knowledge with horrific violent acts of force against good men of science and others?
Is it because ignorance is limitless (which is Gods realm) and knowledge and wisdom has limitations not worthy in the praising of God? Protecting and perpetuating ignorance, blocking all knowledge, is somehow protecting God in some way that the none-religious secular do not understand? Religion wishing ill will…Gods Will…of hell and damnation on those who seek knowledge? Why is God and religion so afraid of learning?
I think it is so unfair to religious people for them to be “by choice” forced to live in a world of imagination only. Where they never get a chance to enjoy and comprehend the enormous fascinating worlds of the Universe newly discovered daily. Or for those religious “that do enjoy” and study in darkness…that they be forced to live a life of hypocrisy, hiding like a modern day Galileo seeking knowledge in silence and fear.
So truly…the true and real proof of Gods existence or none existence “will never be fact” proven by man. And the religious are safe to believe and have faith in whatever they want forever and ever with or without science. Knowledge will never be forced upon the believers!
As for me…I simply want the violence and ignorance perpetuating bigotry to stop and that I be left alone to study, learn and write without fears of Christian Jihad.
