The other day I had written about athletes praising god for their accomplishments and wanted to respond to a couple things some of you had to say…
1. When I said we are all born equal, I mean that any one human being can accomplish great things IF we are given the opportunity. There are places in this world where children will never have that chance because of the environment they are born in, perhaps into poverty or complete oppression, amongst other factors. I’m not racist so I believe that no matter the color of your skin, we are all human and one in the same. If you want to elaborate on your comment, please message me so I can understand you a little better.
2. I don’t believe in god as in a creator of the universe and that this god created Earth in a matter of days. I see the universe in a physical sense and I completely agree with Science that this universe or Earth for that matter is so much older than 6,000 years that its absolutely fucking ridiculous to believe this is true despite what science and technology has helped prove. BILLIONS, not thousands of years. 6,000 or 4,500,000,000 years…does anyone else see how big of a difference this is? That discrepancy does not convince me of this god amongst other discrepancies in the bible. The bible was written by man also so I’m extremely reluctant in trusting it. Anyone that believes in god only knows what they know because what they have read in some kind of sacred text. No one you know has ever seen this god, although apparently Jesus has been seen many times in pancakes, cereal, cheese, in french fries, on a grilled cheese sandwhich, on a tortilla, on an iron, frying pan, an ultrasound, in x-rays, a banana, naan bread, on a cheeto, a piece of wood, and on a dog’s asshole to name a few peculiar locations…
If anything created us, it was another intelligent life-form much more advanced than us, but somewhat similar in the sense that they too are from a planet but are perhaps hundreds of thousands of years or even millions of years ahead of us. I think that our knowledge of galaxies, star formation, and the resulting planets prove unequivocally, that no devine intervention is needed to create stars and planets, the basic necessities for life to exist in the first place. Our intelligence being as spectacular as it is compared to every other living thing is most perplexing and is something I don’t think occurs naturally; I will admit that. I feel like humans just as likely could be an experiment because we have many, many faults considering “god” created us in “his” image. And can someone explain to me why in the bible it says “our image”? Doesn’t that refer to more than one god? I never quite understood that…
You won’t find me praying or worshipping or dedicating my existence to this supposed entity. I guarantee that. I thank my parents for my existence.
And about the CEO of chick fil-a…
Negative publicity will affect a company more than good publicity. This is how I see it. By gaining support of the religious, you are saying that the extra money from that support will outweigh those that used to go to chik-fil-a but will boycott their food because of this issue. I think in this case, you would lose more money than you made. People don’t have much money these days so I wouldn’t expect a surplus in sales from the religious supporters. Youre more likely to lose money because people who are angry will just choose kfc over that shit instead. So your regular customers that support gay marriage might just say fuck you to chik fil a. If any savy business or econ people care to elaborate, please message me. I could be wrong :-)
