Whatever religion you have been indoctrinated in, try and seek freedom from it. No one has to go through a universal epiphany to realize that religion is false. – Published on CHOWK, by Zarrar Said,September 8, 2011.
Believers of a faith tend to adapt the personality of the God that they worship. Believers will also tend to assume that they know what the will of their God may be; whether it is the banishment of homosexuality, the cruelty of child mutilation in the form of circumcision, and utter disregard for people of alternate faiths. I will not get into the reasoning that the Abrahamic God, for example, is a homophobe, a tyrant, and a jealous entity, but rather I would like to point out the assumptions one has to make in order to believe in a God of that nature. Similar to the assumption one might have been forced to indoctrinate as a child. It is pertinent to note that these very assumptions are innate fundamentals for any man made religion and the acknowledgment of the falsehood of these assumptions could lead one to believe in a more universally accepting ideology.
Only three core premises stand for observation here:
- 1. All Gods that have ever been created by man are real and all religions that they have spawned hold credibility.
- 2. Only one of these gods is the real deal i.e. the God as described by Jesus Christ.
- 3. All of the gods that have ever been created are false … //
… The first emancipation one should go through is the freedom from any man made fallacy which has gripped our species for centuries. Whatever religion you have been indoctrinated in, try and seek freedom from it. No one has to go through a universal epiphany to realize that religion is false, all you have to do is read any doctrine whether it be the Quran or the Bible and you will see that this is a document written by human beings centuries ago when the answers to difficult questions could not be arrived at through science. The ultimate goal is to realize that our species as a whole is still in supernatural predisposition and the assumptions of a believer disallow the continuation of rational belief. Breaking away from these false notions would allow us to see everyone as equal, mammalian, ape brethren. (full text).
