Allah would like to make the burden light for you, for man was created weak.
For none of us liveth to himself and no man dies to himself. (John 14:7)
The religious among us are delusional and willfully ignorant in so many ways. In
proselytizing to us heathens, they try to convince us that we need their god
because we are nothing and can do nothing without him. We were created to be
creatures who can only function by deriving all we are and all we do from
a spiritual source.We are mere receptacles for God's spirit to dwell in. None of
us lives or dies to himself.
During the lobotomy the religious cults perform on the weak minded and
unsuspecting, any trace of humanist postulations are incised. Ideas such as
man is a master of his own fate and can chart his own course or solve his own
problems are permanently eradicated from the mind of the victim. After all, only God is independent. What is left is a zombie who believes without question and
is happy to tithe ten per cent of his earnings to the church.
Perhaps humans as individuals are weak. But the great civilizations recorded
by history were built by human hands, not the magical words of an invisible
supernatural entity. It is us, working together, who have built great cities and
machines that can transport us across continents in a matter of hours. It is we
humans who get the credit for our accomplishments. It is we who share the
blame for our follies..
Helpless me? I don't think so.
