Deus Ex Machina: How man created God

July 24, 2011 Leave a comment

God is nothing more than a machination of human narcissism.

Xenocrates

Deus ex machina — Man created God

Have you ever wondered why is it that humans refer to God using male pronouns? Why does God seem to have the emotions of a jealous boyfriend with insecurities? If we are guided by God’s “hand”, then does it mean that he also has feet? Why is it that our God speaks in old English? Why is it that every portrait of Jesus we know of make him look like a white skinned blue eyed homosexual? If the universe is so large, why would God love just us as opposed to some alien civilization? The answer to these questions is the same: Because we made god up.

…while there is nothing new that we can learn from religion, there’s so much more we can learn from science.

Cognitive Evolution

Religion is dying. It’s slowly falling away, losing its stranglehold on modern man, increasingly coming under greater more insurmountable pressures to compete with notably more evolved and sustainable ideas that make the world far easier to live in. In this post, I highlight the finer mechanics of what is actually going on and why after many millenia, it is finally receding.

One who has tough questions should never ask them of those who fear the answers.

The Ultimate Bible Study - Me vs. The Elders

Taking my elders to task on tough Bible questions.

That was my entire childhood really. That’s basically how I grew up with religion. This post is for all the younger folks out there who have questions they are either afraid to ask or were given circular, useless answers.

When logical explanations won’t suffice

March 18, 2010 4 comments

“Truly appreciating religion requires a mind less bound by the parameters of logical congruity.”

Xenocrates

Really?

What if I said that I could offer a logical explanation for everything that religion seems to bind under a shroud of mystery? Would you believe it? I bet, that so long as one is religious, that even the most well educated person out there would not. There is a very good reason for that and I’m about to explain why.

When people go in search of the truth, they tend to find whatever it is they’re looking for, whether it is the truth or not.”

Xenocrates

Remember when Pluto was a planet? Now it isn’t. Remember when removing tonsils cured tonsillitis? Now we know better. Or what about when the moon was completely devoid of water? Recent discoveries show otherwise. All of these things were true once. So I’ve got to ask a really tough question of you:

Atheism Exposed: The Motive

February 21, 2009 23 comments

“Without proof, belief is still belief – even if you believe in nothing.”

Xenocrates

Atheism Defined

Is Atheism a religious belief? Most would argue no, since atheism is purportedly anything but religious. However, of late I’ve been observing a pattern among atheists that has made the entire movement frightfully indiscernible in motive from the very religious proponents they seek to rebut. The trouble lies in the fact that the argument between the two camps is about insubstantial belief – something that is unquantifiable one way or another. As a result, both sides of the fence are making all of the same mistakes – which is why their motivations must be called into question. That is the point of this post. Nonbelievers and people with imaginary friends, follow me for a moment. I have a few things I want to pick your brains about.
