Is this “God” figure merely a creation of the mind? And if this is even the slightest of possibilities, then why would anybody subscribe to a “Religion?” How do people claim to “know” – to believe – that “God” exists and even base their entire metaphysics off of this unreliable claim?
“God is DEAD,” F. Nietzsche.
Then again, Nietzsche is “arguably” friggin’ nuts! (But then again, aren’t we all?!).
I tend to reject the notion of god simply because I believe “God” is just that….a notion.
If you must believe in a god or whatever, do the rest of the world a favor and do not consider yourself a missionary! I am “God” as far as I am concerned. Really. What do we need “God” for? I think he very well may be a creation out of perceived necessity, out of desperation if you will, to explain the Universe and so forth and so on…and control people, justify war, etc.
Just something to think about…
