Just watched an episode of ‘The Borgias’, and it has made it so clear to me why so many people believe in god, they use this fake almighty entity as a, ‘get out of jail free’ card. The myth of god is used to allow man to do his most despicable acts, and then use something only a man could create, an almighty god to absolve him of his sins. Whether those sins are murder, corruption, greed, selfishness, causing misery and distress, as well as all the other multitude of distasteful acts man can conspire to.
The people, who use this fake entity for their own gains, will ultimately go to their personally created hell. And anyone who truly believes in such a falsehood will create their private hell. This does not mean that everyone who believes in god is such a person, but unfortunately these are the types of people that hold a major sway in our lives. They find no immorality in their actions, they can do the most heinous of crimes and just say god will forgive them, or absolve them, or whatever they believe to be their own personal ‘get out of jail free card’, whatever it may be.
One day the decent people, the ones that let these criminals do what they want, and allow them to ruin our lives on a daily basis, will finally realise and hopefully one day will take action against this crime against humanity.
