God doesn’t exist

  1. 1. God Doesn’t Exist<br />An Argument to Raise Awareness of the Truth.<br />
  2. 2. What’s an God?<br />God is the mystical space warlock who created the Universe and all of it’s energies, i.e. light, heat, gravity, electromagnetism et al. <br />He is omnipotent(all powerful), omnipresent(everywhere at once), omniscient(knows everything) and omnibenevolent(loves us very much).<br />He is also beyond the scope of human comprehension.<br />
  3. 3. Wait, what?<br />Yes, you heard me. We cannot describe God, we have no idea what he is planning for us, no idea what he is doing, what he wants, etc. etc.<br />This is a cheat code for the argument towards God’s existence. A scapegoat that theists can fall back on in order to make their arguments. <br />
  4. 4. Mounds of bullshit.<br />The way God is defined lends him the gift of indisprovability. He cannot be refuted simply by his definition. This, however, is not hard to accomplish.<br />There is a miniature, invisible space giraffe orbiting the planet. It controls the universe and we cannot detect it. It is smarter than us. We cannot understand what it is trying to do.<br />
  5. 5. See what I did there?<br />I just made a God. It cannot be disproved. I also say it exists and that it is more powerful than your God. I’ll be printing and distributing a Bible for it later. <br />That is how easy it is to rig an argument from the get go in your favor. <br />You didn’t believe me because you applied skepticism and critical thinking. My goal is to get you to apply that same level of rational thought to the Christian God.<br />
  6. 6. Unfortunately<br />When Christianity was invented (like all other human religions were invented) [Christians get mad when I say this but they would be the first ones to say the Greeks made their shit up LOL LAUGHABLE DOUBLE STANDARD], it was the year 100 BC.<br />I don’t know if it was actually 100 BC, I’m just going for the ball park estimate. <br />
  7. 7. In 100 BC?<br />Your life was dominated by brutal, back breaking manual labor. You had no formal(or really any, for that matter) education. You had no rights or privileges, or food, or water, or anything, really. You answered to sadistic land owners who basically owned you like slaves. <br />You also believed in some religion that I’m not sure of. But it wasn’t Christianity. <br />
  8. 8. Someone walks up and says:<br />There is a God in heaven who controls everything and has a plan for you. He will give you an eternal life in heaven if you live a life of humility, piety, dignity and poverty. Also, you have to follow these 10 rules and did we mention that there’s a book and you don’t have to change any of the dates of your religions holidays and this is all truth because of this book and stuff.<br />
  9. 9. So,<br />From the perspective a poor person who has nothing to live for, the idea of God is awesome. <br />An eternal afterlife? That’s sick!<br />You have to be poor to qualify? You mean those assholes who fuck up my shit all day can’t get in? COOL!<br />This is how religion spreads. Through the poor and the uneducated, complacent “sheep people” masses.<br />
  10. 10. Sheep People<br />You are a sheep if you accept what authority tells you without question.<br />You are a sheep if you do not exercise your mind against this sort of brainwashing activity that the Church, the media and our government employs on a daily basis. <br />Being a sheep is not good. It’s what happens to weak minded people. Do you want to be weak minded? Do you want to be a sheep?<br />
  11. 11. How to start a Religion<br />First step is to create something which, using its own concepts and ideas, work together to ensure perpetuation and proliferation of the Religion itself.<br />Christianity is a good example of this. It is set up like a virus that invades the mind. It is true, and questioning it makes you suffer forever, it is simple and fronts a good message, and is popular amongst the poor and the downtrodden.<br />
  12. 12. Demorilization<br />Set up the religion so that it is the one true way. <br />All other God’s before God are false Gods, people who try to speak out against God are being tricked and manipulated by Satan, blasphemy punished by death are perfect examples of Christianity perpetuating itself through fear tactics.<br />
  13. 13. Indoctrinate Children<br />This is the easiest step, because children will believe ANYTHING. Their knowledge base is effectively zero, so they don’t have anything to fall back on when they need to critically think. Instead, their minds are eager to absorb any information given to them, even pure bullshit.<br />Christianity is good at getting kids. Jesus loves you, he is your friend, and you will be with him after you die and live together in heaven with all of your friends and family. <br />
  14. 14. Destroy Your Enemies<br />Make it “God’s Will” to kill anyone who doesn’t believe in God.<br />Make people think that humans are born naturally believing in God and to do anything other than that is wrong.<br />Burn non believers at the stake in public.<br />All of these will ensure that the poor, uneducated people you have tricked into believing this will go right on believing it. <br />
  15. 15. It only takes 1 Generation.<br />If you grow up without an education and are told day in and day out that God is the one true God, etc., then you are going to believe that until the day you die.<br />And so will your children, because you will indoctrinate them the same way you were indoctrinated. You don’t want them to go to Hell, do you?<br />
  16. 16. Breeding Blind Faith<br />Because you don’t want your children to go to Hell, you tell them not to question God’s existence because that’s the Devil.<br />This is the same thing your parents did to save you so you have to save your children.<br />And so religion perpetuates itself like a disease. Like a cancer, of sorts. It’s brilliant in it’s sadism.<br />
  17. 17. Why Christianity is Bullshit<br />Under even the most rudimentary of analyses, for which I think even a 10 year old could be capable, the God Christians pray to is illogical, and contradictory.<br />Examples to follow.<br />
  18. 18. Omnipotence paradox<br />GOD CAN DO ANYTHING. ANYTHING. Bottom line. Doesn’t matter. Omnipotence, by definition, means all powerful. Capable of performing any action.<br />Can God make a rock so large that even He cannot lift it?<br />One sentence causes a logical collapse of the definition of omnipotence.<br />A better question; Can God create a being more powerful than himself?<br />
  19. 19. Omniscience vs. Free Will<br />God knows everything, too. Everything, before it happens. Everything. Cannot stress that enough. <br />That means he knows what you are going to do before you do it. This could be construed as giving you an illusion of Free Will. <br />Also, God knows what he himself is going to do, before he does it. So he has to do that one thing, because if he doesn’t, then he didn’t know he was going to do that one thing and he isn’t omniscient. So either he is a non autonomous robot, or doesn’t know everything.<br />
  20. 20. Omnibenevolence and why God is an asshole.<br />God loves us all, unconditionally(with conditions). He is all loving, and perfectly good. <br />However, God also allows evil to exist. <br />This doesn’t make sense. If he knows everything and can do anything and loves us, why would he allow us to suffer?<br />
  21. 21. For free will!<br />He allows us to make our own decisions, even though they might be evil.<br />Why didn’t God make us without the negative behavior patterns like parasitism, lying, immorality, psychopathy, etc.?<br />Certainly we could all exercise our own free will just fine if we were physically incapable of making immoral decisions. Surely God knows this.<br />
  22. 22. Counterpoint.<br />There exist instances of intense suffering which an omnipotent, omniscient being could have prevented without thereby losing some greater good or permitting some evil equally bad or worse. <br />An omniscient, wholly good being would prevent the occurrence of any intense suffering it could, unless it could not do so without thereby losing some greater good or permitting some evil equally bad or worse. <br />(Therefore) There does not exist an omnipotent, omniscient, wholly good being<br />
  23. 23. Omniscience Paradox Continued<br />First question, who created God?<br />Second question, how long was he sitting around in nothingness (or himselfness?) before he decided to create the universe? <br />Why would take any action if he knew the end result of that action. You do something in order to see a result, but if you already know the result then you don’t need to do anything.<br />
  24. 24. He gave us life.<br />God created the Universe so that he could create human life.<br />It is only humans, in their immense arrogance, who can look up at the 100 BILLION galaxies, each with 100 BILLION solar systems and say “ALL OF THIS WAS PUT HERE SO I COULD EXIST”.<br />
  25. 25. What kind of life?<br />The whole evil thing?<br />Also, he made the rib-woman and the apple, and knew she was going to be tricked by a snake to eat the apple and give humans original sin. So he wiped out humanity a couple times, then sent his son(who is also himself) down to Earth on a suicide mission to rid the world of the original sin that he originally condemned us to.<br />That’s fucking retarded. I could come up with a better plan than that in like 5 seconds.<br />
  26. 26. The Problem with Hell<br />Massive overkill.<br />Are you more forgiving than God?<br />Why punish his children if his end goal is to bring us all back into his kingdom?<br />Why leave open the possibility that any of his children won’t believe in him and therefore send them to hell? <br />
  27. 27. Unintelligent Design<br />If God created the Universe, then he made some pretty funny mistakes when it came to life on Earth.<br />Cancer is a major one. Conjoined twins, scoliosis, cerebral paulsy, Down’s Syndrome, Lou Gehrig’s disease, are all example of genetic deformations in the human body. How can anything God makes (him being perfect) have flaws? Why would he make us with flaws? <br />Because he is an asshole. <br />
  28. 28. More examples.<br />The existence of unnecessary wings in flightless birds, e.g. ostriches. <br />The route of the recurrent laryngeal nerve is such that it travels from the brain to the larynx by looping around the aortic arch. This same configuration holds true for many animals, in the case of the giraffe this results in about twenty feet of extra nerve.<br />The structure of humans' eyes (as well as all mammals'). The retina is 'inside out'. The nerves and blood vessels lie on the surface of the retina instead of behind it as is the case in many invertebrate species. This arrangement forces a number of complex adaptations and gives mammals a blind spot. Six muscles move the eye when three would suffice.<br />
  29. 29. No Gods Before Him<br />So God can’t be omnipotent(the word itself is contradictory), is either omniscient without free will or vice versa, and to top it all off, he is capable of petty human emotions.<br />This doesn’t even sound like a god anymore.<br />Questions: Saints? Jesus? Gods equal to him vs. Gods above him?<br />
  30. 30. Christianity’s Other God<br />I am talking about an entity with powers apparently as strong and far-reaching as godhisownself. An entity who has the same ability to extract souls as "god". An entity who has the ability to micromanage and meddle in the lives of 6 billion individuals on this planet - same as "god". And I'm talking about an entity who, by all accounts, has a great deal more success in luring converts than "god". That's right, I am talking about Satan - by all evidence, equal in kind and equal in power to godhisownself. <br />Seems to me that, since they are from the same place, made of the same stuff, and have similar superpowers, then they both qualify as gods. Sure, Satan started out as an underling, but like in a lot of organizations, some bright guy with a new idea and dissatisfied with stodgy, top-heavy, and glacial management and with zero partnership potential, breaks away and starts his own gig. In this case, the former pupil has done very well for himself and has grown in stature and power, and certainly in following, to a point where he is apparently able to fend off all efforts to shut down his franchise. <br />
  31. 31. Devil Contradiction<br />Why is the devil evil if he punishes all the bad people in hell?<br />How could God be hindered by the devil in any way, if God, an omnipotent being, can do anything?<br />
  32. 32. In Short <br />The Christian God cannot exist as defined by Christians. <br />
  33. 33. Other Religions?<br />Other religions serve as testament for the fact that God doesn’t exist.<br />All religions are “the one true religion” in their own doctrine. This is an ignorant claim, to say the least.<br />That’s satan! He is tricking them!<br />If you grew up in Iraq you would be taught by your parents that the Muslim God is correct. And that the Christian God is the invention of Satan and George W. Bush in order to destroy Islam.<br />So who’s right? <br />
  34. 34. The “Jesus Story”<br />Copied and pasted from the religions of the Mediterranean from thousands of years before he supposedly existed in the first place.<br />Krishna: In India, 1000 years before Christ. He was a carpenter, born of a virgin, and batpized in a river.<br />Mithra: Persian God, 600 years before Christ. Born on December 25th, performed miracles, was resurrected on the third day, and was known as the lamb, the way, the truth, the light, the savior and the messiah. <br />
  35. 35. Continued:<br />Written in 1280 BC, the Egyptian book of the dead describes a god, Horus... He was son of the God Osiris, born to a virgin mother, baptized in a river by Anup the baptizer, who was later beheaded. He was tempted in the desert alone, healed the sick, and the blind, cast out demons, walked on water, raised Asar from the dead (Asar translates to Lazarus). He also had 12 disciples, was crucified, and 3 days later, 2 women announced "Horus, the savior of humanity has been resurrected"<br />
  36. 36. Even More Continued<br />His mother is a royal virgin, his father is a king, the circumstances of his conception are unusual, he is thought of as the son of a god, at birth his father tries to kill him, he is spirited away, we know nothing about his childhood, he becomes king when he becomes a man, reigns uneventfully, describes laws, loses favor with his subjects, driven from the throne of a city, meets his mysterious death at the top of a hill, his children do not succeed him, he has more than one holy sepulcher.<br />
  37. 37. Who does that sound like?<br />Hmm? Can anyone tell me who I just described?<br />It’s Oedipus. That dude who fucked his own mom in Greek Mythology.<br />
  38. 38. John Martyr:<br />"When we say that Jesus Christ was produced without sexual union, was crucified and died, and rose again, and ascended to heaven, we propound nothing new or different from what you believe regarding those whom you call the sons of Jupiter." <br />That’s the Roman version of Zeus. We named a planet after him. <br />
  39. 39. Pascal’s Wager<br />You should believe in God!<br />It’s your best bet to avoid hellfire.<br />First of all, believing just to save yourself from damnation isn’t true belief. Secondly, you’re wrong.<br />
  40. 40. Take other Religions into account.<br />Pascal says we have 4 options when we die.<br />If someone believes in Religion, they are rolling the dice, hoping that they have the right one(because all religions are correct, to themselves). So you only really get saved if you have the right God, and even more so, are in the right sect who worships the correct version of that one God. I.E., I’m sure Catholics would be PISSED if Mormons turned out to be correct, lol.<br />
  41. 41. GxS=P<br />Simple Algebra, G= Number of Religions, S= number of sects of a particular religion, and P= Your possibility of salvation from choosing to believe in a religion.<br />There are 1000 deities, extreme minimum.<br />There are 10 different sects of the church who believe in that deity, on average.<br />You have a 1 to 1000 chance of having the right religion.<br />
  42. 42. Did you choose your religion?<br />I’m going to assume no, and if you did, why did you choose that one as opposed to any others? It’s all bronze age fairy tales anyway.<br />Do you think it’s fair that your parents’ parents’ parents’ parents’ parents’ parents could have picked the wrong sect of a particular religion and you are now condemned to hellfire because your family bred you to believe the same (incorrect) thing that they did?<br />
  43. 43. Where does this leave us?<br />Well, if you are able to detach yourself from your religious fanaticism, hopefully you have realized that you have been fed some boo’shit. <br />If you haven’t been swayed, try to count how many times your counter points use the phrase “God is so far above us so we can’t…” If it is 1 time, you are not using a rational thought process.<br />
  44. 44. Prove God Doesn’t Exist<br />No, and I’ll explain why.<br />The Burden of Proof lies not on the person hearing a claim, but by the person making it.<br />In short, the person who says God exists has to prove that he exists. If he can’t do that, I don’t need to disprove anything.<br />
  45. 45. I can’t prove God exists.<br />So why do you believe in him?<br />If you use the phrase “because I know he exists” then you are going to hell, because (and I’m paraphrasing this) “You must have faith in order to enter the kingdom of heaven”.<br />Knowledge, by its own definition, isn’t faith.<br />Faith requires belief without proof.<br />Faith requires mental weakness and complacency.<br />
  46. 46. I believe God exists because of things that have happened to me.<br />Yeah. So do the people who believe in Big Foot, or their own alien abduction. Both of those things are bullshit, too. <br />This is called an Argument from Personal Experience and doesn’t hold up worth shit in any legitimate debate.<br />
  47. 47. I’m going to believe in God anyway.<br />That is all well and good. I do hope you enjoy misunderstanding science, bigotry, hatred, irrational fear, ignorance, human segregation, genocide, and living your life according to a population control method based off of bronze age folklore. <br />
  48. 48. Population control?<br />Yes, population control. <br />Sex is bad, reserve it for marriage. Sex is evil and so is masturbation. Do not have sex at all.<br />This was because we didn’t have condoms. We got a lot of girls pregnant who would later die in child birth because they were too young. That means they can’t give birth to any more Christians. <br />
  49. 49. Also<br />Religion is like science… without all of the science. Religion is a good way to keep uneducated people uneducated, because the only answer they need is God.<br />God this, God that, pray praypray. Don’t think for yourself or try to develop knowledge in any way.<br />
  50. 50. Atheism<br />Infinitely better than religion.<br />Religions segregate each other based on their beliefs. I, as an atheist, do not hate anyone because of what they believe. I just hate what they believe and pity them for not thinking for themselves.<br />I preach science, knowledge, truth, trustworthiness, justice, help, love, basic humanity, and life. <br />
  51. 51. Life Without God<br />I propose that instead of worshipping God, the black hole of information, we worship knowledge and the common good. A Church of Humanity. Help other people, don’t kill each other because of your imaginary friend superstitions, etc.<br />
  52. 52. Atheist Facts<br />95% of the National Academy of Science.<br />10%(at the most extreme) of prison inmates (LOL)<br />Atheists live longer (and happier)<br />Have a lower divorce rate<br />Make more money<br />Smarter<br />Not required to hate anyone<br />No rules on what you are and are not allowed to think<br />
