Lose the ego, Wed, Jan 30 2013 #(444)

Jan 30, 2013

First let me start off by saying this, as Sigmund Freud said,”Organized religion is so patently infantile”. With that statement I whole heartedly agree. However your view on the nature of god as a delusion is also patently infantile. You argue from your big old ego.(your need to be right), as if science is the only thing, you are too narrow minded. You think god is a thing that can be investigated. It is beyond human comprehension.So there is really nothing to say… Your comments(book) is the Richard Dawkins delusion…

I will leave you with these quotes;
“God cannot be explained, He cannot be argued about, He cannot be theorized, nor can He be discussed and understood.
God can only be lived…
To understand the infinite, eternal Reality is not the Goal of individualized beings in the Illusion of Creation, because the Reality can never be understood; it is to be realized by conscious experience.
Therefore the Goal is to realize the “I am God” state in human form.
“Meher Baba”

I doubt you will really understand this because you had the audacity to write about what god is not… lose the ego, your not as smart as you think you are.

“Those who speak do not know
Those who know do not speak”.

    He has described the Dunning-Kruger effect perfectly but I don’t think he understands the implications as it relates to himself.

    “God cannot be explained, He cannot be argued about, He cannot be theorized, nor can He be discussed and understood.”

    This is something most religions strategically have in their holy texts in some form or another as a means of stopping the followers from questioning their ridiculous stories and logic.

    Growing up I used to question the ridiculousness of the trinity and was told similar things. “You just have to have faith” “We humans do not have the brain capacity to understand God or his ways” “God is mysterious” “God can be in three forms, just like water, ice and steam” or other incredibly weak analogies. The trinity really started chipping away at the christian faith for me evidenced by point of fact that theologians still don’t agree on how it works. I always knew something wasn’t right even as a kid. ‘Let me go sacrifice myself to my other self real quick so I can save humanity from the wrath of myself based on sins I created humanity to make in the first place”. So I understand why christians have to resort to ‘mystery’ or ‘don’t question god’ statements. I get it. They have no choice. They are fighting a logically incoherent, losing battle. But they can’t admit that because, like free will, you take that away, and there’s nothing left.
