Anybody who knows me knows I am not a man of god, I do not believe in a religion, and honestly don’t believe there IS a god. I do however, find the mythology of God, Jesus, Satan, Heaven, Hell, etc. to be the most fascinating bedtime story ever told. I know a bit about it all and am always up for a good debate about it, if you’re one of the few who actually know what they’re talking about and not just a hypocrite. See, in my eyes, there are 2 types of believers: The hardcore bible thumpers who could quote you scripture right off the top of their head without even thinking about it. They will damn you themselves if you’re not a believer and will probably stab your ass if they think it’s what God wants.
Then there are my favorite people, the hypocrites. The people that will swear up and down that they believe in God and have accepted Jesus Christ as their lord and savior but when you talk to them you realize they really have no clue what they’re saying. These are the people that not only credit God when something happens that they don’t understand, usually hailed as a “miracle”, and believe that they got a golden ticket to heaven because they are “genuinely a good person and God knows that”. These are people who lie, cheat, steal and take God’s name in vain every single day and don’t think twice about atoning for their sins. But “God knows I mean well, and he knows the righteous from the wicked”. Really? Have you read the bible? Or did you just skim it? Because the god depicted in the bible is an asshole.
God as he is depicted in the bible is a spiteful, vengeful god. Stricter than you could possibly imagine, his word is law, and if you don’t follow, you are the damned. And with this god, THE God, it is simply not enough to follow or believe. The bible says that, and I’m paraphrasing here: “Man will be judged by his works, not his faith.” Which basically means you can believe all you want, but if you’re not working for God, doing his deeds, spreading his word, you are not a man of god and will be denied into heaven. “God will smite the wicked, he will strike down with great vengeance and furious anger”. This is the god that everyone seems to agree on that we should pray to and thank every day? This is who you credit for not falling down the steps or spilling your morning coffee? Seriously? Excuse my French but you’re fucking delusional!
There’s a religious group called B'nai Nephilim, which translates to “the sons of the fallen”. These people actually believe that Lucifer is in fact God and that the god that the mainstream prays to is actually the Devil. Think about this for a minute. I’m not condoning any beliefs by any group and definitely am not a “Satanist”, but this makes sense to me. People seem to follow blindly and not question their beliefs, but these people did and this is the conclusion they came to, and I respect that. I still they’re misguided like everybody else, but I respect that they didn’t follow what they’re told to believe at such a young age and they had half the mind to stand up and start looking at things from another perspective. And if you know anything about the mythology about it all, then this should make sense to you too. Lucifer was an angel who stood up to God and disagreed with how he was doing things, and he was banished from heaven for it. So what does anybody do when they’re kicked out of the cool club? They start a cooler club, with booze, floozies, and gambling. So to speak.
Does anybody really know the story of Jesus? Many people just assume it’s a real story but the facts are that this is possibly more fabricated than real. Ever heard of the Egyptian god, Horus? Probably not, so let me break it down for you. By the time stories of Jesus Christ started to circulate, the story of Horus had been circulating for centuries. And it’s remarkably similar to a certain bearded, loin clothed son of god. Horus was born unto a virgin and was hailed as the son of the god, Osiris. His mother, Isis-Meri (Mary) and his father Jo-Seph (Joseph) welcomed his birth in a cave (as was Jesus). His birth was announced by angels and witnessed by shepherds and was later witnessed by 3 solar deities (Wise Men). There is no known record for either Horus or Jesus from the age of 12 until 30 when they were both said to have been baptized. They both had 12 disciples, walked on water, cast out demons, healed the sick, and restored sight to the blind. I could go on and on with the similarities, literally. There are a LOT of them, but I think you get the point. By the way, did you know that the story of Jesus didn’t start being told until 300 years AFTER he died? What was the hold up? I mean, who dropped the ball on that one?
I honestly believe that Jesus never existed. I have almost zero reason to think otherwise. He’s as real as Santa Clause and Kim Kardashian. God on the other hand, I don’t believe there is one, buuuuut, I don’t deny the possibility of one. The universe is a wondrous place full of things we don’t yet understand. I do believe in aliens, which is something these religious types have trouble swallowing, because I see facts that they could exist. I also believe they have visited us. Before the alleged Roswell crash in 1947, our most advanced piece of technology was the steam engine. Fast forward a few years and we had NASA and put a fucking man on the moon. I put my belief in science and hardcore facts. But, if there is in fact a god and Jesus was real and the story I chalk up to as a myth is in fact true, then I’m without a doubt going to hell. And when I do, I won’t be mad, cuz I’ll have you to keep me company. See you there. :)
