I have repeated my view many times on radio programs that I am a materialist and do not believe in the existence of God.
However, let’s assume that I am wrong. Let’s assume that there is a God.
-Even if there is something like “god,” religions are still man-made. Christianity and the Gospels are man-made, Judaism and the Torah/Talmud are man-made and Islam and the Koran/Hadith are man-made. Even if “god” did exist, people could still invent religions if “god” allowed it to happen.
-Even if there is something like “god,” I do not believe I would be judged negatively for not believing in its existence. Maybe if God acted like a three year old child he would be angry that I doubted it. I would think the supreme being would be able to get over something so trivial.
-Even if there is a god, there is no way that “god” would have as many human characteristics as portrayed in Islam (God getting angry) or Christianity (God being Jesus).
-If “God” was all-powerful, then “God” would not allow so much free will unless “God” decided to step away. If “God” decided to step away, then why would he come back to judge later?
-In summary, even if there is a higher power, which I doubt, religion is still fake.
But people like Starr / Kristen Jemming can pretend to be cultural Christians even though they hypocritically acknowledge that God does not exist. Like Appolonian said on the radio program, it is a conveinent position to take if you are an opportunist.
Bottom line is that atheists and true Christians have more respect for each other than they do for fake Christians.
