Journal Entry #372
March 7th, 2011
Over the past year I have been speaking out on my blog, through my music and art and the more I engage in conversation the more I see a few constants. God is so very small.
The believers I have talked with over the last year all over the world have one thing in common, they believe in god because it fulfills their desires. It allows them to feel they will get what they fell they need even though those needs cannot be filled in reality. The world, the universe does not work the way they want it to but that doesn’t stop them from trying to make it work within their beliefs.
The one thing that is consistently lost and ignored is the truth and how we determine it through the process of reason and science.
The Universe is so very, very big almost beyond anything that we can comprehend. Science has shown us so much especially in the last 30 years. Throughout all these discoveries we have watched the gods of man shrink daily while the universe we live in expands in both scope and beauty. There really is no good reason to accept any of the gods of man as real, there is no evidence that is credible in any way and each day the reasons people believe become smaller and smaller.
BBC Wonders of the Universe Episode 1 : Destiny 2011 [HD].
There are so many great documentaries and other videos available that show the wonders of the universe, the wonders science reveals to us. The beautiful thing about all these films and all the information available is that it will be based on truth, on reality not on some supernatural nonsense.
I am going to listen to people such as Brian Cox to tell me about the universe. You can choose who you want to listen to but I would hope they are dealing with reality.
With each discovery the gods of man will disappear, they will have no place in this brave new world. It will not be long now until we discover life on other planets and it is this discovery that will and should change everything. At that moment the gods of man need to completly disappear and I hope they do. We need to realize that the universe could not care less about humanity it has bigger problems.
If you believe in god in some form or another it really is time to accept the truth in this universe. Will it be what you want to hear, probably not. There is no point in me offering you a science lesson as the above video will provide that much better than I ever could.
My message is clear; the gods of man probably and again I say this with a very high degree of confidence are not real. It is time as a species we embrace and acknowledge reality and all it has to offer. This will be humanities finest hour if we do this. We as a species being aware of our existence and able to look beyond the moment and our needs for that moment have never been in a position where we have given reality and truth the opportunity to guide us to be better.
