So, of course I have to put in my two cents 🙂
FYI I’m not religious, nor am I spiritual. I don’t believe some giant man is up there in the universe directing traffic. When I heard the “news” that the “world was coming to an end” and that “Jesus was coming” I couldn’t help but laugh. We (not God) are brining on the end of the world. We are destroying the very place that gives us life everyday! We litter without thinking twice about it, we set up camp in places that are known for disasters without caring that maybe, just maybe, they’re not disasters but normal everyday acts of nature trying to replenish itself. OPEN YOUR EYES!!
Hurricanes, floods, tornados, tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanos have ALL existed since before most of us or our parents, parents, parents, parents were around. . . The problem now is we overpopulated -because we are irresponsible- and no one gives a crap about anyone but themselves. We are nosy and inconsiderate. NO one truly respects nature or themselves enough to admit that we overreact to things that have been occurring naturally since the dawn of time. Get over it, There is no GOD!
“Where has God gone? I shall tell you. We have killed him – you and I. We are his murderers. But how have we done this? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the sponge to wipe away the entire horizon? What did we do when we unchained the earth from its sun? Whither is it moving now? Whither are we moving now? Away from all suns? Are we not perpetually falling? Backward, sideward, forward, in all directions? Is there any up or down left? Are we not straying as through an infinite nothing? Do we not feel the breath of empty space? Has it not become colder? Is it not more and more night coming on all the time? Must not lanterns be lit in the morning? Do we not hear anything yet of the noise of the gravediggers who are burying God? Do we not smell anything yet of God’s decomposition? Gods too decompose. God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we, murderers of all murderers, console ourselves? That which was the holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet possessed has bled to death under our knives. Who will wipe this blood off us? With what water could we purify ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we need to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we not ourselves become gods simply to be worthy of it? There has never been a greater deed; and whosoever shall be born after us – for the sake of this deed he shall be part of a higher history than all history hitherto.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche
That being said, be your own “God”. Take hold of your life and live it and stop freaking worrying about all that nonsense about the world coming to an end and “Jesus coming back”. Jesus was just a man, like you like me ( not that I am a man or anything). I think that if we all realize that we are the only ones that can control what our life is like, the world will be a better place. For those of you who are to rebut “but the Bible says”, don’t bother, the bible was written by who? MEN and WOMEN just like YOU AND ME! people lie, people tell stories, do you believe everything everyone tells you? do you believe in Santa Clause? HELL NO!! So come on! Get over it and stop believing this craziness!!
That is all 🙂
