GOD IS GREAT: IT IS THE SO CALLED MEN OF GOD WHO ARE NOT GREAT
The reality for Christopher Hitchens is that 80% to 90% of mankind believe in GOD. This belief in GOD whether it is part of the evolutionary process of Homo Sapiens, or because GOD actually exists is natural.
To take man’s natural Concept of GOD, a conception of Peace and Love, Goodness and Mercy, an all Wise, All Loving GOD for all mankind, and turn GOD - by bastardizing his teachings into a murderous GOD of hate, death and destruction, for power and in the case of Islam for the creation of an evil totalitarian system is one of the greatest sins that can be committed against GOD.
Christopher Hitchens dispute is not with GOD but with the so called men of GOD who have - through the millenniums - for Power, Domination, and Control of society turned these teachings of Peace and Love, Goodness and Mercy into acts of evil.
The fact is that throughout mankind’s history, a minimum of 350 million people have been slaughtered in the worst ways imaginable in the name of and to the greater glory of GOD. The so called men of God responsible for this carnage deserve to be in Hell.
Following is a description of the nature of God:
GOD AS THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE - THE CREATOR OF ALL LIVING THINGS IS PERFECT.
ALL TEACHINGS OF GOD - A PERFECT GOD - MUST BE PERFECT
ANY WRITINGS IN ANY RELIGIOUS TEXT THAT ARE NOT PERFECT ARE NOT THE TEACHINGS OF GOD BUT THE TEACHINGS OF MAN
AS A PERFECT GOD - GOD IS ALL PEACE AND LOVE, GOODNESS AND MERCY
ALL MANKIND ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD
ALL OF MANKIND ARE CREATED EQUAL AND THEIR LIVES ARE SACRED TO GOD
GOD IS NOT AN IRRATIONAL BEING. IF GOD IS IRRATIONAL THEN GOD IS NOT PERFECT AND THEREFORE SINCE GOD CANNOT BE IMPERFECT AN IRRATIONAL GOD IS NOT GOD
All teachings in all religious texts (written or verbal) that are not PERFECTION – MORAL PERFECTION are not the teachings of A PERFECT GOD but the teachings of man. This means that all teachings recorded in all religious texts, revelations, writings, sayings of war, murder, killing, death and destruction, violence, hate, etc are irrational AND NOT THE PERFECT TEACHINGS OF GOD – A PERFECT GOD – A GOD OF ALL LOVE AND PEACE – A GOD OF MORAL PERFECTION.
In the case of Islam - No God who is God would ever preach that murder, killing, death and destruction, violence, hate, violent jihad, terrorism, torture, brutality, savagery, maiming, wife beating, inferiority of woman, women as instruments of sexual pleasure in paradise, honor killings, stoning, cutting off limbs, child sex, sharia law, bigotry, intolerance, extortion, slavery, mutilations, looting, pillaging, slavery, inequality of infidels, inequality of any human being, that infidels can be murdered and their property stolen as a holy duty, that Muslims who renounce Islam can be killed, that Muslims (or anyone) who challenge the teachings of Islam can be murdered, that believers who slay and are slain in the service of God will ascend to a sexual Paradise of big eyed, big breasted virgins who they can sexually molest for all eternity, etc are evil and irrational AND NOT THE PERFECT TEACHINGS OF GOD – A GOD OF MORAL PERFECTION – AN GOD OF ALL PURE LOVE AND PEACE – BUT THE EVIL TEACHINGS OF ALLAH – THE ANTI GOD – THE TEACHINGS OF MUHAMMAD. You cannot climb to heaven on the corpses of the murdered. No God who is God would ever create a Paradise full of big breasted sexual nymphs. All such teachings are the commands of evil men and false prophets. If God commanded that infidels (or any other human being) be killed then he would be irrational and evil and no longer PERFECT - no longer GOD.
If GOD does exist then the following truths are self evident:
1. GOD is anti - war. As MORAL PERFECTION, God is the embodiment of All Peace and Love. War and violence are abhorrent to God – an affront to the intelligence He bestowed on mankind. God never lead an army into battle, changed the weather allowing (His) side to win or any other form of divine intervention. For GOD - all war is abhorrent. There is no - "His" side”.
2. GOD is a non - religious entity. For God, there exists no concept of believers or non – believers, no chosen people. There is no one truth - no such thing as the one and only true religion. There are many ways to God. Even a total non - believer like Christopher Hitchens
can ascend to Heaven provided he does not have an evil soul. Religion was invented by man as a vehicle to allow him to comprehend God. Because man is imperfect then religion is imperfect.
4. GOD gave man a Free Will to do Good or Evil, to explore the truth of any question including - his existence. God does not demand obedience or adoration.
5. GOD is democratic -. Having given man intelligence, God believes that no man should be ruled by dictators.
6. All men are created equal. GOD is not a racist.
7. GOD created women as the equal of men. GOD is not a sexist.
8. No man is the property of any other man – God is not a slaver.
9. GOD has never killed or ordered the killing of any human being. He has never sent a storm or other calamity of nature to destroy any human being or any human city etc.
If GOD killed only one human being (or any other alien life form throughout the universe who exercises free will) then GOD is a murderer and GOD is no longer GOD.
10. GOD has the power but not the moral right to destroy the Earth. There are many different ways mankind can go to extinction. The end can come through the actions of man such as a nuclear holocaust, or the invention of a disease. Another way is for a comet to smash into the earth. Global warming could set off natural processes making the Earth uninhabitable leading to extinction. Definitely in 5 billion years, the sun will supernova destroying the earth. If GOD intervenes in these natural or human processes in any way and destroys the Earth because he is pissed off with Homo Sapiens or any other reason then GOD is the greatest mass murderer ever and GOD is no longer GOD.
The greatest danger mankind faces is the smuggling of a nuclear weapon by an Islamic Fundamentalist into a major western city killing millions in the name of and to the greater glory of God. If the hateful teachings are not removed from Islam this is the disaster that will destroy civilization as we know it. It will dramatically change human history forever.
For anyone to kill one human being let alone millions in the name of and to the greater glory of GOD is an obscenity. The fact that such evil exists is a failure of man not of GOD.
