What follows is just a write up of what I said in the video. You can read it or listen to me struggle to communicate…
I like to think that I’m an atheist. Well let me not say I “like” too. I don’t necesrarily like it. Let me say that I consider myself to be an atheist. And like most atheist I choose science over religion. Because atheist are usually firmly in the camp, that thinks “seeing is believing”.
“But God made man in his image we are his children! We didn’t evolve we were created with love by our creator. God loves you!”
I’d believe that but what about the dinosaurs and all the other creatures that precceded humans? Dinosaurs were evolving and changing for 150 million years before humans were dong shit. We have been here for maybe a half million years, depending on your definition of “human”. Were the dinosaurs “tests” or “prototypes” for modern man? If that’s the case that would take God down a few levels, wouldn’t it? It would make him very “human”. I mean why would God need to make “prototypes” for man, whom many religious people would claim is God’s greatest creation ever? It’s fucking GOD! The creator of the universe and everything we know and understand.
Now I’m not saying I’d make the best GOD. But, If I was a GOD and I wanted to make something I would hope I’m powerful enough to make it right the first time. I mean….. if not what kind of God am I? I got to test shit out!? That’s human shit, testing and discovering things, and learning from those experiences…
So now you are probably just as convinced as I am that I am truly an atheist. This has been straight blasphemy so far. But I’m not truly an atheist!
You see I still wish and hope. There are days when I wake up and I say to myself “I hope today is a good day”.
On my birthday or when the moon is full I make wishes. Who the fuck am I relying on in these situations? It’s not “God”. At least not in my mind. But it’s the same shit. I’m still asking for some unseen force or power to intervene in my shitty life. I’m honestly expecting some ALL powerful force in the universe to stop what ever it is it’s doing, creating galaxies destroying suns what ever the fuck it is doing, to give me a bike. Mother fucker I’m God! I gave you life now you want a fuckin bike!? FUCK YOU
A true atheist wouldn’t hope or make wishes, they would rely on themselves and forces they can directly interact with. Because magic isn’t going to intervene and make that girl like you. Cosmic forces aren’t going to align and get you that promotion. NO it’s up to you and the support you have. If that isn’t enough then too bad.
So if you want to find out who a true atheist is. Put a birthday cake in front of them, tell them “make a wish!” and if they blow out the candles and hope for some great thing to transpire, simply because they wished for it then that isn’t an atheist.
If they knock that cake on the floor and say “FUCK making a wish I’M GOING TO DO THIS SHIT!” ding ding ding! You have a winner!
