One stage of the human mind (regarding religion) is when it knows for certain or has enough knowledge to conclude that all religions wriiten in The world are incompatible with the morals or beliefs that he/she posseses. Or if the mere thought of conciliating religion and god becomes servile to the brain, The person possessing such a perception holds the argument that god had a divorce with religion and a marrige with his/her conscience. God’s decision of justice, righteousness, morality and ethicality holds the same criteria as that of the person believing in a divorced god. This god becomes more personal than universal.
This perhaps is the last stage before submitting to athiesm. This idea appears more rational when you examine that this was probably the first stage when the idea of god would have been coined in a thiestic (or possibly a con’s) mind. The first gods were conceivably a result of mankind’s personal fears and lack of knowledge. It can be spelled out wonderfully by looking at the greek mythology. Whenever thunder would strike or storms would destroy villages, a conclusion of the sky god being angry was not argued upon. Zeus perhaps was a result of such an insecurity and fear.
Conceptualize being an inhabitant of an era where the knowledge of natural occurances such as that of tsunamis , hurricanes, volcanic eruptions were unknown. One would wonder why the winds are angry or why is the sea unstable or why is fire coming out from underneath the ground. seeing such a phenomenon take lives of the fellow human beings one would also fear theese natural occurrences. Contemplating the fact that no single human could be herculean enough to make the winds angry . Zeus , poseidon and haedes were braught into the equation to form a solution for the unanswered questions. Hence, being gods of more personal knowledge than universal one.
Inception of krishna, jesus, mohammad and their miracles (majorly miracles in the case of mohammad) apear to be following the same patern as thoose of the sky , water and land gods of the greek mythology. Theese were either created out of fear or to bring fear. Krishna’s and jesus’ story concludes when a lordship of a totalitarian and evil dictator/king is braught down, in order to bring fear into the hearts of thoose in power. Mohammad’s miracle of splitting the moon in two can be best described by the lack of knowledge about lunar eclipses. Theese stories were then followed as sacred texts ,religious doctrines and an ideology of the definite truth.
Seeing how for the person that believes in a divorced and a personal god, the journey of being religious has gone backwards. I conclude that possibly associating with no religion and believing in a god is possibly the last stage of being religious.
3800 years ago rig veda was written, 2000 years ago the bible came into existence and 1400 years ago the quran was revealed. Hence, came with them ambiguity about the one true god and a thousand year long enmity between the three longest branches of faith.
Christianity being the longest branch offcourse with nearly 31% of the population on earth hanging on to it, followed by islam with 23% of the population hanging on to it and hinduism with 15% of the population holding on to it. Meaning that 70% of the population on earth certainly believes in a devine authority. Explaining the fact that all of theese people believe in a heaven and hell. And if not heaven and hell but in a doctrane that not only advocates it but also defines it.
In the modern 21st century where capital punishment is arguably considered inhuman and heinous crimes such as mutilation and rape are believed to be worse than murder. I wonder how then a 70% inhabitants of the same 21st century believe that an all-loving god would punish people with eternal torture of hell fire in the christian and islamic hell or in 28 diffrenent kind of hells with much gross, inhuman, disgusting, brutal, callous,sadistic, torturous (mentally and physically ) punishments in the hindu hell.
This is the same 21st century citizens who would protest against honour rape (a justice served infamously in indian panchayats) and capital punishment but in their faith would be content with a god that caries out theese vicious and barbaric punishments.
How dare you label a god this vicious as an ‘all loving’ one? How dare you label his revelations as sacred? How dare you treat his texts as the high ground of morality? Contemplate this, tommorow you wake and read in the newspaper that Indian parliament has decided that if an act of public display of affection is commited, the penalty would be to tie the couple in ropes and burn them. Would you still have faith in the justice system or its ability to diffrentiate right from wrong?
Simmilarly,If a god cannot serve justice correctly then how can he
be relied upon to reveal what is right or wrong in the first place?
They say be passionate but not too much
They say run but don’t rush
They want you to fly but close to their skies
They want you to dream but with closed eyes
As you grow up and time flies
You learn the greatness is nothing in the smiles
You learn the greatness is in the unseen tears and unheard cries
Don’t grow up to find yourself a martyr in the mirror
Grow up to tell the tales of giving up never
Walk through the desert, swim through hell
Feel the pain, give them a story to tell
Never back down, win the crown
Break a leg but never frown
Ones that hate and the ones that doubt
Leave them unconscious,knock them out.
watching people walk over me
I’ve grown afraid to see
As the fear inside of me rose
To keep the eye lids shut i chose
Once upon a time in my thoughts of the days i let go
I found a tree which sheltered me in its shadow
The sun came up as i was sitting beneath the tree
It was your smile that had brightened the day and brightened my eye
It was your affection that had given me the warmth i seek
All of a sudden it was you i had given the power over me
She opened her eyes and saw him. The one man she had once wished to never see again and as time passed the same man had become her wish. She saw him and felt confused. She initially wanted to stay away from him as he was a hurricane to her. In between all theese thoughts the boy said ‘hi’. It was then that the girl realised, calm is not outside the hurricane it’s inside the eye of the hurricane. Without him she is lost but with him she likes being lost.
He is the hurricane, he would destroy the world in order to keep his eye secure!
you’re my fear, I don’t care
You’re my weakness, you’re something i would never share
You’re the glimpse that changed me from my toe to my head
You’re the night kiss that killed all the monsters beneath my bed
I thought you would stay
I thought we would forever be this way
the day you were gone and i was all alone
A question inside of me has grown
A question that bothers my smile and makes dull the moon’s shine
It asks me, my body, my love and my heart. It asks ‘yours or mine?’
am i yours or am i mine?
He asked furiously ‘why is it so incomplete?!’, she couldn’t answer him, as pure as she was she just stood their with wet eyes. But as aggressive as he was he went on speaking every feeling that came to his mind. He kept screaming repeatedly ‘i hate you, you did this to me. I hate you , you did this to me. I hate you, you did this to me’ She had had enough of his blaming, she finally broke the master’s gridlock and claimed with a heavy heart ‘i did it for you goddamit!! I did it for you, i want you to reach the sky , I don’t want to be your weakness that holds you back from spreading your wings, i love you too much to see you loose because of me, i love you stupid i love you’ as she cried throughout.
Both of them experienced an emotional silence , with heavy wind blowing behind and darkness around them. The boy and the girl looked straight into each other’s eyes.She could feel his breath.
The boy then in a low, bleak and fragile voice said ‘ (hername), what do i do with winning and loosing? When i have lost you?’
