I think the reason many people believe there’s a god is people have the need to be able to blame their problems on someone else. Let’s not forget Satan; by default, he is the one blamed when something bad happens.
On the other hand, having a god can be an excuse for repeatedly doing evil things. Once we know that there is a supreme being who is capable of forgiving our sins we will do whatever we want to do. It’s simple. Once you’ve done something immoral, all you need to do is pray and ask for forgiveness. Isn’t it great? Now that is where the bullshit plays a great role. What pisses me off, people spend Saturday nights partying, doing drugs, abusing women, etc., and come Sunday morning, they go ask for forgiveness. And they do it all again next week!
So I came up with this idea. I’m going to do whatever I want. Act like a total ass. Do everything that is morally wrong because all I have to do is ask for forgiveness for all my sins a moment before I die and I will be saved.
What a great concept. What a fucking bunch of bullshit.
