In this world, most of us are brainwashed into believing that there is a god. This god judges us every day and decides whether or not you get to go to heaven or hell. Well, I think that this is all bull s*** and lies. I don’t blame the people who raised me to believe in god, because they believe in this fictional character. All of this poses a question, is god real? Well of course not ,but I’ll tell you why in the next paragraph. A rational person rejects all human gods equally, because all of them are equally imaginary.
How do we know that they are imaginary? Simply imagine that one of them is real. If one of these thousands of gods were actually real, then his followers would be experiencing real, undeniable benefits. These benefits would be obvious to everyone. The followers of a true god would pray, and their prayers would be answered. The followers of a true god would therefore live longer, have fewer diseases, have lots more money, etc. There would be thousands of statistical markers surrounding the followers of a true god.
God is not real but I still have to write a counterargument, without their being a greater being than humans I can understand why people would believe want to believe in such thing as a god. Another thing that draws most people to the belief in god is the heaven and hell concept. Who wouldn’t want to live an eternity in a place of complete delight and peace. They trick you into believing it with the “Fiery Pit of Hell” concept which is ridiculous.
A good argument for god is the idea of how we came to be, it’s much easier to believe in a timeless god who created our universe. The human body is nothing but a set of chemical reactions. The chemical reactions powering a human life are no different from the reactions powering the life of a bacterium, a mosquito, a mouse, a dog or a chimp. When a human being dies, the chemical reactions stop. There is no “soul” mixed in with the chemicals, just like there is no soul in a bacterium, a mosquito, a mouse, a dog or a chimp.
Why would there be an afterlife for the chemicals that make up a human body? The fact is, God had nothing to do with the creation of the universe, in the same way that God has nothing to do with the sun rising or rainbows appearing. Science does not have a complete explanation for the universe’s creation, yet. While it is true that science does not yet know everything there is to know about the universe, scientists will eventually figure it out. When they do, what they will find is that nature created the universe, not an imaginary being.
