- Atheism & Agnosticism
God, Religion, Faith, Superstitions etc.
People are interested more in knowing about Aliens, Ghosts and Gods instead of knowing human being and self. They like to believe in things that do not exists, and deny realities and truth. Their brains are captured by creators of Gods. It is a kind of slavery.
Does God Exist?
Modern science have proved how the universe was created. Stephan Halkings, an authority on Cosmic science says that we do not need a God to create and operate the universe. Great scientists like Isac Newton, Benjamin Francklin, Albert Einstein, Carl Sagan have denied the existence of God.
God did not create anything as he does not exist. He himself is an illusion created by man.
Thinkers do not believe in God. Believers do not think. Believers believe in God just because they are told to believe in him. Thinkers deny God because they think, ask questions to self, reason everything and conclude that there is no God.
Not only the scientists, but the great philosophies like Jainism and Buddhism have denied existence of the creator God. Further three out of 6 streams of Vedic philosophy also deny God. Lokayat, another philosophy from ancient India also questioned the existence of God and denied it. But sad thing is that followers of all the related religions to these philosophies have nothing to do the original values, and have become victims of the so called Gods.

Religions Have Divided Mankind
There are too many religions in the world. The followers of every religion think that his religion is greatest, oldest, scientific, logical and the only way to reach to God. (God that does not exist). They want to spread their own religion in all over the world, and for this they wish that other religions should be destroyed by any means. Remember that religions have fought wars and killed the largest number of people in the name of God. This is still going on.
Religions have divided people in the name of God, and further they have divided their own people in the name of sects.
Religion makes many of its followers hysteric. Further no religion wants that followers should think rationally and ask questions, as it may lead the followers to rebel against the religion, clergies and monks.
Karl Marx said that Religion is Opium. But I think he was wrong because he did not know that there were more dangerous drugs than opium to which religions could be compared.
Faiths, Beliefs and Superstitions
When there is a faith or belief, we do not doubt and do not ask questions. It stops the process of finding truth.
Every faith is a blind belief. But it does not mean that we should doubt everything, and ask questions everytime. But when we want to find facts, we should keep away the beliefs. Only this can help us to find the truth.
Blind beleifs can lead us to superstitions. Blind beliefs and superstions can help us if they are mild. They work as Placibo. But when they lead us to believe in miracles, ghosts, black magic, addiction to God and religions, so called gurus and clergies, superstitions can destroy our future.
Blind beliefs and superstions can not solve our problems. To solve the problems, you have to think on the mistakes you have done, and find the way to escape from adverse situation. Gods, religions and gurus can not solve your problems. In reality, you yourself and your close once can help to tacle the problems.
