Superstition and reason stand on the opposite sides of the road. Superstition is based on fear of the unknown, reason embraces the unknown. The Neolithic man lived twelve thousand years ago. All things around him seemed to conspire for his death. He did not understand nature and did not differentiate animate from inanimate objects. He… Continue reading
Religion avoids embarrassment by telling us that we don’t need to know what God is. We must revere God without knowing Him. It must be unconditional faith, no questions asked, not even about Him and why he does certain things. Here is the problem I see. Humans can only adore, revere and love something tangible….

A universal religion does not exist. The closest we came to universality was paganism. The common thread was there are no rules. It could be said paganism is a universal religion.
If God wanted religion to be essential, he would make it intelligible to everyone. If it was the most important thing, the goodness of God, it seems, ought to make it the clearest, the most evident, and the best demonstrated of all things. Is it not astonishing to see that the gospel, apparently so essential… Continue reading
Religion introduces God to man. God did not introduce Himself to us. If that were the case, the Neanderthals would have had some type of bible to work with. In the same breath, religion declares God as infinite. How can there be communication between something finite and infinite? Scientists don’t even understand infinity. How can… Continue reading
The foundation of religion tells us that our minds are limited to grasp the Divine qualities of God. One would think, however, that God made us in such a manner that we could understand the Divine qualities. Is that not what an infinite being with infinite knowledge would incorporate into His design? No wonder religion… Continue reading
No religious system can be founded otherwise than upon the nature of God and man, and upon the relationship, they bear to each other. However, in order to judge the reality of these relationships, we must have some idea of the Divine nature. However, everybody tells us that the essence of God is incomprehensible to… Continue reading
All religious principles base their ideas on a ‘God’ which does not act upon any human senses. The idea is convenient because no man can comprehend such a being. All our ideas are but pictures of objects which strike us. What can the idea of God represent to us when it is an idea without… Continue reading
Theology is the science whose object is only incomprehensible things. Unlike all other science fields, it occupies itself with things that cannot be seen or touched. Theology must be called “the kingdom of darkness.” In this kingdom, everyone obeys laws opposed to those which men acknowledge the world they inhabit. In this marvellous region, light… Continue reading
Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed. That’s ok if you are an adult. You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequence of your choice. Children don’t understand the consequences of their decisions. Just as children believe in Father Christmas and the Easter bunny, they blindingly believe in Jesus. They also believe in eternal hell if they don’t believe in him. Father Christmas and the Easter bunny do not have these threats weaved in as part of the philosophy, so they lose interest and realise it’s not true. Religion has the fear factor for which children have no answer, and they are too scared to say no.
