God Did Not Create ManFebruary 1, 2007 at 6:29 am | Posted in Atheism, Beliefs, Miscellaneous, Religion | 76 Comments
God did not create man, man created god. God is the invention of primitive people as a way of explaining the un-explained. You’d think we would have outgrown that kind of primitive thinking by now wouldn’t you? Think of all the things we know now that were completely unknown to us a couple hundred years ago. Just because we don’t understand something, does it automatically follow that there must be a god? I don’t really have a good understanding of how my car works so I guess god must make it run, same for my washer and dryer, and how about those airplanes, god again? Of course when you talk about the universe and the big bang theory there is always a believer who says, “There has to be a god because it all had to start somewhere”. True enough, it all certainly did have to start somewhere, but someone please tell me why then should that start automatically be attributed to a god? After a fairly bad car accident that could have been a lot worse, an acquaintance said to me, “god must’ve been watching over me”, to which I responded, “Which way, then, do you suppose god was looking when that car ran the red light and hit you?” I never did get an answer to that one, but I suspect I might get one now. Come on you know there are those of you who want to ‘enlighten’ me as well as ‘save’ my sorry ass.
