When I was a kid I watched the great Hindu epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata, I saw the movies on Christ and I also got the chance to learn about different religions and gods from time to time. Back then world was too big to me to understand. But these gods definitely left their impact on me. Usually I do not question things but if some guy claims to have extraordinary and unbelievable powers so much so that he can stop the time, die and resurrect, turn cursed human beings from stones, and can bring rain at his whim, then I’ve got to question that man. And I have got to question the authority and institution that supports it.
When I think of Superman and any God say Krishna. I see they both do good work, they both want welfare of people and they both use extraordinary powers for the good and against the evil. The differences are that the institution that supports Superman is not as big as Krishna's, hence the followers are less and most importantly superman is not old enough to be the God. My point is Krishna was a Superman of his age and had a strong following, who liked his funny acts, but ultimately he is a product of fiction and nothing more. Why can't people see that these gods are just too much to be real?
Today religion stands as the most corrupt organization in the world. In India British set the example of how handful men can rule the entire nation i.e.by divide and rule. Religions did exactly the same. When the kings had understood that the people cannot be divided easily against his atrocities, they through politicians established the organizations called religion and a leader of the same known as God. It was a gamble but it worked, all over the world, very well. So well that the people of one religion do not deny the existence of other gods and they believe that there are all but the same and one. But then they kill people in the name of the same religion. Religions are paradoxical in practice and ridiculous in themselves.
Religions make people insecure, dependent and weak. No religion ever sets anyone free because there is always some guy with the hold of rope against your neck. Who is God to tell you what is right or wrong? How does he know what is right or wrong? He has got extraordinary powers and can bend any reality into illusion and any illusion into reality. How can I trust him when he says this is right and this is wrong? This is all his game, how do I know he is not playing a trick against me or that he is not lying? If there is any god in any religion then he is the most corrupt, selfish and cynic person in the world because he has got all the power and he can do anything with it and you will never know.
One more interesting thing about gods is that no god of the east ever went to the west to help out the people there and neither did any god of the west is known to have come to the east. So a god who is omnipresent, can see everything and walks with you 24/7 loves regionalism or may be he was a racist. Or may be he was simply a human being projected deliberately and thus having a limited so called kingdom.
Sometimes I laugh when people talk about science and god and how they both are contradictory. I wonder if there was a god then why he never did works of science? Why he couldn’t have just stood and passed over the technology of computers in his speeches? Why he didn’t teach us relativity? God knew everything and, as we all know, he was very kind so when he landed on earth why he didn’t tell that one there will be deadly diseases like cancer and aids and then you must take so and so medicine to cure it.
Why God always had to be born with a book of morals and principles?
The idea of god has to do more with politics, greed, slavery, violence and imperialism than with anything else and each one of us needs to know about it.
