Continued from “The Roots of Distrust, Part 2 (truth)“
Christianity has a version of the truth that is exactly the opposite of the aforementioned definition. They spell it with a capital ‘T’, as if this makes their definition valid. This is akin to a person who is arguing a false position (or lying) and decides to shout because he believes that being louder gives the impression that he is right. Knowing full well that his position is baseless, he hopes that his opponent is so convinced by the shouting that he gives up.
Christianity’s version of the truth is the exact opposite of the truth as verifiable fact. ‘Truth’ plays the ‘Faith’ card. Their are no verifiable facts in their arsenal. They shout loudly knowing full well of the lie, hoping everyone will get sick of the shouting and walk away. Sadly many have.
“The search for truth implies a duty. One must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be true.”
– Albert Einstein
When speaking of spirituality the concept of superstition naturally comes to mind. Merriam Webster’s online dictionary gives one definition of superstition as follows:
1a.a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation.
b: an irrational abject attitude of mind toward the supernatural, nature, or God resulting from superstition.
2. a notion maintained despite evidence to the contrary
The notion of an all-loving, all-knowing god that couldn’t think of another way of saving humanity other than raping a mortal woman so that she could raise a son to be tortured, then murdered to atone for our sins seems ridiculous as it is. But, when you add a mountain of evidence and verifiable facts that not only shows that the claims were plagiarized but that the copyists stopped at nothing to cover their tracks, then it becomes quite obvious that Christianity, as well as all organized religion, is nothing more than superstition.
“We must question the story logic of an all-knowing, all-powerful god, who creates faulty humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes.”
– Gene Roddenberry
Here ends this three-part series of articles. I hope that I was able to put into words some of the feelings and thoughts that I’m sure many of you have had throughout your life. Please always remember that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Claims of invisible beings, virgin births, and resurrections are truly extraordinary. As Acharya continuously demonstrates, through her research and writing, the evidence available doesn’t support any of those claims.
