Why I remain Atheist Part 2 AbsolveAsGaad:

I have read several Bibles over the years. I  am also part of social media. I see a lot of post that don’t make sense to me regarding religious belief or the lack thereof. One thing that never made sense to me was the belief that no one has morals and ethics but religious people.

Because I have read the Bible I can see blatant errors in it. I acknowledge that religious followers and leaders will try their best to use a convincing mind play and word play to make things appear favorable to them.They will lie and use dirty tactics which should be considered immoral and unethical. But it all depends on who’s telling the story and to whom the story is being told. It has become profitable for them to tell lies.

I have read the King James Version of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation back to Genesis several times. As I write this in what is said to be Sunday August 30th I acknowledge that the King James Bible I would read today is not the same King James Version of the Bible I would have read 30 years ago. That Bible was not the same King James Version written 100 years prior. It had been re-translated several times. Some people profess that the newer translations are more accurately depicting how the initial writers of medieval times wanted it to be. I know that to be falsehood. The initial writers of what became the Bible had no intention for it to be reinterpreted to use against them. That’s what Christians and Catholics have done to the early Hebrews. They changed the Hebrew interpretations into their Catholic and Christian interpretations.

The Old English of the King James Version of the Bible is senseless in the way it was written by comparison. The word “and” may have been in one sentence  four or five times. The medieval English speaking folks may not have known what a comma was and didn’t use the punctuation marks we now use in our modern times. Their way of writing and speaking became obsolete. Humans constantly evolve while some religion teaches to deny evolution. The advance of language is part of evolution.

The funny thing about morals and ethics is the fact many theist and atheist have opposing morals and ethics. Theist pretend there is no such thing as opposing morals and ethics. What they consider moral and ethical may be what I consider immoral and unethical.

For me I determine my own morals and ethics by weighing what I consider a greater good over a lesser good. Sometimes it doesn’t work. There are unforeseen objects or objectives that can change a moral outlook or an ethical outlook.Many religious people pretend there are absolute rules descended upon them by or from a paranormal entity they refer to as God. The problem with such thinking is the fact it will not nor can not always work. But instead of admitting this religious followers are required to lie about it and try to cover it up.

There was a guy on Facebook who made claims that no atheist on earth had morals or ethics. His way of proving it was to use immoral and unethical tactics. That’s when it dawned on me that we have opposing morals and ethics. He would do nearly whatever it took to convince as many people as it took to believe him. He would be creating enemies and creating friends. Those who believed him would become his allies. Those who didn’t….didn’t.

The phrase or term “God complex” means when someone who may at times be in error somehow pretend they couldn’t possibly be in error. Somehow many theist are proud that their concept of a God has a God complex. They say “Of course God has a God complex because He’s God”. But how would they know? They know because they are making up a comfortable God to believe in. In their makeup they may say My God better be merciful today or I’ll stop believing in him. So their God has to be merciful, or so they say. Yet the Bible is filled with examples of a God performing cruel acts of blatant racism, sexism, homophobia and numerous other forms of immoral and unethical acts. Somehow religious followers pretend not to see them.

In most if not all mythology a God can be either positive, negative or neutral. There was no god devoted completely to either one of them because everyone has the ability to be all three. Many modern religious followers don’t seem to know this. Religion is mythology.They create a god who is less dimensional than they themselves are which would actually make their god less powerful than they themselves would be. They don’t seem to know what the word or term omnipotence means. Yet they claim their god is omnipotent. They then limit their God to a one dimensional perspective as if all good. So their god can kill the first born son of an entire race of people yet it be considered good. It was good because he took out his opposition. They were those whom opposed the omnipotent god. But even under such conditions these acts are not merciful. It disproves the omnipotence of their almighty creator and makes him have the characteristics of his believers wishes, instead of reflecting actual omnipotence. In modern times we have comic book characters and video game characters far more omnipotent than that of the religions most powerful of gods.

I want to write notes about how I see errors in the Bible beginning with Genesis. Before writing about how a God created a heaven or an earth I wanted to begin with who was telling the story in the first place.

I see numerous writers writing about things that never usually address the same things I point out.I may have already wrote discrepancies over the existence of Moses himself. I notice how most Christians refuse to address timelines, culture and geography to their discussion from a factual standpoint. So when the talk about Moses as a Jew who grew up as an Egyptian they may have to admit Moses wouldn’t have known anything about Jesus or a Judeo Christian God.

I have read several Bibles over the years. I also am a part of social media. I see a lot of post that don’t make sense to me regarding religious belief or the lack thereof. One thing that never made sense to me was the belief that no one has morals and ethics but religious people.Yet most will lie about their own beliefs. I realized that most if not all religious followers who profess a belief do not actually believe what they say. It will not stop them from saying whatever they profess to believe in. They may say they believe in God but they actually don’t believe in God. They have to repeatedly tell themselves that they do in order to reinforce it.

Is stabbing your own baby to death an act of mercy? Most people will agree that such an act under normal conditions is definitely not an act of mercy. Yet those same people may say that when God does such a thing, no matter the circumstance it’s merciful. They don’t believe that. They help make the laws for people who stab their own children to death go to prison.It is considered immoral and unethical to stab your own child to death. Yet the Bible clearly shows how a God asked one of his faithful believers to “sacrifice” their own child as proof of their hope, faith and belief in him.God wanted his follower to stab their baby to death. It’s in the Bible.

Because I have read the Bible I can see blatant errors in it. I acknowledge that religious followers and leaders will try their best to use a convincing mind play and word play to make things appear favorable to them.They will lie and use dirty tactics which should be considered immoral and unethical. But it all depends on who’s telling the story and to whom the story is being told.Because if I were to go to church a preacher would tell the same story in such a way that stabbing your child to death would look like the act of a true pious humble believer.

I have read the King James Version of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation back to Genesis several times. As I write this in what is said to be Sunday August 30th I acknowledge that the King James Bible I would read today is not the same King James Version of the Bible I would have read 30 years ago. That Bible was not the same King James Version written 100 years prior. It had been reinterpreted several times. Some people profess that the newer translations are more accurately depicting how the initial writers of medieval times wanted it to be. I know that to be falsehood. Old English is generally used in Shakespeare. Some have said that it was Shakespeare who wrote parts of the Bible as requested by King James.

The funny thing about morals and ethics is the fact many theist and atheist have opposing morals and ethics. Theist pretend there is no such thing as opposing morals and ethics. What they consider moral and ethical may be what I consider immoral and unethical. This is how Christians can pretend a christian god existed since the beginning of time but…..yeah there is a big but in this. But the Christian God was previously a Catholic God who was previously a Jewish god. Although there were Gods and religions preexisting them we are to overlook them as Paganistic.

I see numerous writers writing about things that never usually address the same things I point out.I may have already wrote discrepancies over the existence of Moses himself.I notice how most Christians refuse to address timelines, culture and geography to their discussion from a factual standpoint. So when the talk about Moses was a Jew who grew up as an Egyptian they may have to admit Moses wouldn’t have known anything about Jesus or a Judeo Christian God. Why wouldn’t Moses have said anything about the pyramids in Egypt? Why is the Christian version of Moses a Christian version of a Moses? What happened to the Hebrew or Egyptian Moses?If he was Hebrew would his name have been Moses? What was his Egyptian name if he grew up as an Egyptian?
