Religion Is A Man Made, Dangerous Distraction

Pets are welcome but dogmas must be tied up outside.

“Religion is the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Religion is what forced us and keeps us, out of the Garden.”

We do good works in the name of religion and we refrain (or try) from doing bad works in the name of religion (for fear of punishment). It is a system of reward and punishment so puerile and ineffective, so childish that it is akin to a belief in Santa Claus. (He knows when we’ve been naughty, he knows when we’ve been nice, he knows when we’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake).

We are not children (this system does not work well with children either for they grow up to be like us). We do not need religion and heavenly rewards to do good, nor fear of punishment to refrain from evil. Evil rarely cares about punishment and often seeks it as a perverse type of reward.

There are millions of people who are not religious who are compassionate and do good works because it is more satisfying to do so.

There are millions of people who are religious who do bad works, despite or because of expected punishment.

Perhaps it is because most religions tell us that we are bad and the very premise is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we feel we are bad we will seek evil activities to satisfy our need to be punished.

Go figure!

A POEM:

Last night I heard God talking And this is what He said: Women are just tempters They want you in their bed.

“It’s my unchallengeable dictate Celibate you must be You cannot have any sex And retain your purity.

For you to be My spokesman For you to be My man Whenever you get horney Stop! Do whatever you can.

Douse yourself with ice water Wear an iron strap Mutilate your body Lacerate your back

You will one day thank Me You will bear My cross Heaven your reward will be The world will be your loss”

Chorus Can you believe what we believe? Just listen to Adam blame it on Eve She’s the first woman and he’s the first wimp No wonder the men are all going limp.

Last night I heard God talking And this is what He said: Find a bunch of pubescent girls And take them to your bed.

Start a new religion Justify dysfunctional need Just tell’em that I told ya so My order you must heed!

Chorus Can you believe what we believe Just listen to Adam blame it on Eve She’s the first woman and he’s the first wimp No wonder the men are all going limp.

Last night I heard God talking And this is what He said: If you join My special group I’ll raise you from the dead.

Together we’ll hang in the clear blue sky In rapture blessed and well And Watch the unbelievers down below Descend into fiery hell.

If you join you’ll never fret, The others’ ignorance you’ll find funny Go and preach now what I say Collect a lot of money.

Chorus Can you believe what we believe Just listen to Adam blame it on Eve She’s the first woman and he’s the first wimp No wonder the men are all going limp.

Can you believe what we believe Mary had a baby without having sex To free us from the sins of Eve No telling what we’ll believe next No telling what we’ll believe next

Well why not write a different story A tale that’s much more fun Like, Moses took a toke from a burning bush And lay laughing in the sun. Jonah got a job with Greenpeace Protecting all the whales And Noah worked with the Wildlife Fund Saving animals from floods and gales.

Can you believe what we believe… Can you believe what we believe…
