GOD IS IMAGINARY

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Proof #1 – Try praying

How might we prove that God is imaginary? One way would be to find a contradiction between the definition of God and the God we experience in the real world.

What would happen if we get down on our knees and pray to God in this way:

    Dear God, almighty, all-powerful, all-loving creator of the universe, we pray to you to cure every case of cancer on this planet tonight. We pray in faith, knowing you will bless us as you describe in Matthew 7:7, Matthew 17:20, Matthew 21:21, Mark 11:24, John 14:12-14, Matthew 18:19 and James 5:15-16. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

We pray sincerely, knowing that when God answers this completely heartfelt, unselfish, non-materialistic prayer, it will glorify God and help millions of people in remarkable ways.

Will anything happen? No. Of course not.

This is very odd. Jesus makes specific promises in the Bible about how prayer is supposed to work. Jesus says in many different places that he and God will answer your prayers. And Christians believe Jesus — according to this recent article, “54% of American adults believe the Bible is literally true.” In some areas of the country the number goes as high as 75%.

If the Bible is literally true, then something is seriously amiss. Simply look at the facts. In Matthew 7:7 Jesus says:

    Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

If “every one who asks receives“, then if we ask for cancer to be cured, it should be cured. Right? If “our Father who is in heaven gives good things to those who ask him“, then if we ask him to cure cancer, he should cure it. Right? And yet nothing happens.

In Matthew 17:20 Jesus says:

    For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

If “nothing will be impossible to you“, then if we ask to cure cancer tonight, cancer should disappear. Right? Yet nothing happens. Note that if we take the Bible less-than-literally here, the statement “nothing will be impossible to you” becomes “lots of things will be impossible to you,” and that would mean that Jesus is lying.

In Matthew 21:21:

    I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

If “you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer“, then if we ask to cure cancer tonight, cancer should dissappear. Right? Yet nothing happens. Note again that there is not a non-literal way to interpret “you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer“, unless you replace “whatever” with “nothing” or “little.”

The message is reiterated Mark 11:24:

    Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

If God says, “believe that you have received it, and it will be yours,” and if we believe in God and his power, then what should happen if we pray to cure cancer tonight? It should be cured. Either that, or God is lying.

In John chapter 14, verses 12 through 14, Jesus tells all of us just how easy prayer can be:

      “I tell you the truth,

anyone

        who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and i will do it.

Look at how direct this statement is: “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” This is the “Son of God” speaking. Have we taken him “too literally?” No. This is a simple, unambiguous statement. Have we taken his statement “out of context?” No – Jesus uses the word anyone. Yet Jesus’ statement is obviously false. Because when we ask God to cure cancer tonight, nothing happens.

We see the same thing over and over again…

In Matthew 18:19 Jesus says:

    Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

In James 5:15-16 the Bible says:

    And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

In Mark 9:23:

    All things are possible to him who believes.

In Luke 1:37:

    For with God nothing will be impossible.

Nothing could be simpler or clearer than Jesus’ promises about prayer in the Bible. Yet, when we pray to eliminate cancer, nothing happens.

And keep in mind that this is Jesus talking here. These are not the words of human beings. These are not the words of “inspired” human beings. These are supposedly the words of God himself, incarnated in a human body. Jesus is supposed to be a perfect, sinlessbeing. And yet, it is obvious that Jesus is lying. What Jesus says is clearly incorrect.

 


Jesus is supposed to be God. God is supposed to be perfect.
When Jesus speaks, he should speak the truth.
Yet when we look at what Jesus says about prayer,
he is clearly lying.
If you would like additional proof, gather a million faithful believers together into a giant prayer circle. Have them all pray together in Jesus’ name that God cures every case of cancer on the planet tomorrow. Pray sincerely, knowing that when God answers this completely heartfelt, unselfish, non-materialistic prayer, it will glorify God and help millions of people in remarkable ways. Now, we certainly have two or more people gathered together, and they have asked in Jesus’ name, and we have not one but a million faithful believers who, by definition, have faith and believe. We have fulfilled every one of Jesus’ requirements.

Will Jesus answer the prayer now? Of course not. Your prayer will go unanswered, in direct defiance to Jesus’ promises in the Bible. In fact, if you pray for anything that is impossible, your prayer will always go unanswered.

If you are an intelligent, rational human being, all of the examples mentioned above show you that the God of the Bible is imaginary. The Bible clearly promises that God answers prayers. Yet when we pray, nothing happens (for a complete discussion proving that nothing happens. What Jesus says about prayer in the Bible clearly is not true. Therefore, one of two things must be happening:

  • God is imaginary.
  • God does exist, but he never answers prayers. Unfortunately, God is defined by the Bible to be a prayer-answering being. The contradiction between the reality of God and the definition of God proves that God is imaginary.

In fact, we have ample scientific evidence to demonstrate that the belief in prayer is nothing but pure superstition, as shown in the next proof coming soon…….

WHY SOMEONE HATES GOD

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

What has God ever done for me?  I’ve never killed anyone.  I’ve never raped anyone.  I’ve never robbed a bank or stolen a car.  Yeah – I’ve hurt a few people, but they hurt me first!  They deserve what they got! 

 

You’ve hurt me, God, from the day I was born.  I had no father or mother to raise me.  I went from foster home to foster home as though I was just a cheap piece of rubbish.  No one ever really loved me.  Sandy was the only one who ever really loved me, and you let her get cancer and die on me.  God, I hate you so much.

 

You even let Molly get ran over by a car.  Remember that, God?  Molly was my friend’s pet dog, and Molly loved me more than she loved Sam, her owner.  Molly would come over and beg me to pet her and play with her.  She was the only one I could really talk to.  She was the only one I could really trust.  She never turned her back on me like everyone else has.  And you let her get run over God.  You took my only true friend, and I hate you for that too!

 

Remember that time my mom called me and asked if I would meet her at that restaurant?  She wanted to see what I looked like all grown up.  I waited there at that restaurant, God, but mom never showed up.  She never ever even called back to tell me what happened.  I prayed and asked you to have her call me and tell me why she never showed up, but you wouldn’t even have her do that!

 

Sandy and me were good together, God.  She had been hurt her whole life just like me.  She understood me, and I understood her.  We had plans to marry as soon as we could get some money together.  When I held her in my arms, I felt like nothing else in the world mattered.  My hurt would go away and her’s would go away too.  You took that away from me God, and I’ll hate you forever for taking her away from me.  Why did you have to let her die?

 

I used to dream that she would come to me at night.  I swear I could hear her in my room sometimes, calling my name, after she died.  I prayed and asked you to let me see her, but you wouldn’t even let me see her, even though I begged you to.  I could feel her there sometimes … I know she was there beside me – but you wouldn’t let me see her.  You are so cruel, God.

 

Look at the mess this world is in?  People killing people over nothing.  People strung out on drugs and killing each other for it.  What kind of God are you to make people do things like this?  Babies starving in other countries and disease is killing people like no tomorrow.  People killing people because of their hatred over religious beliefs and people blowing themselves up thinking that you are going to reward them in heaven for it?  This is crazy, God, and I think you are crazy too.  You’re crazy, God, that’s what you are – mad crazy!

 

And remember that time I went into that church to talk to you?  I really wanted to know if you really are real, or people just believe in you because they need something to believe in.  I gave you a chance to prove to me that you are real, and nothing happened.  I even got down on my knees and asked you to somehow show me you are real, and nothing happened.  Nothing!  I don’t think you are real, even.  If you were, you would answer me right now.  Are you a coward, God, or just think you’re too important to let me know you are real or not? 

 

Yet I want you to be real so you can know how much I hurt.  I want you to hurt just like I hurt.  I want you to hurt worse!  I don’t deserve to hurt this way.  Why did you let me be born in the first place?  Just to hurt like this?  You are so cruel and mean. 

 

Religious nuts say you died on a cross for my sins.  They claim you even rose again and went to heaven after you died.  Well, if that is so, why didn’t you let Sandy come back to life?  Those religious nuts claim you healed people before you died – why didn’t you heal Sandy before she died?  She asked you to heal her, but you didn’t.  I don’t think you healed nobody.  I don’t think you even died.  I don’t think you even existed.  You’re just a fairytale lie some religious nuts have come up with so they can get money out of poor people.  That’s what I think. 

 

So you going to send me to hell for hating you, God?  How can hell be any worse than the hell I’ve lived my whole life?  I don’t want to live anymore, God.  I want to get it all over with because I’m tired of hurting.  I’m tired of the pain.  I want you to hurt like I’m hurting God.  You don’t even care if I hurt, do you God?
