Religions could be manmade
Welcome to our article (45), Religions could be manmade
May God guide and help me to say the right things?
Dear readers, we want to know everything about religions, and whether religions came about because there have been signs from heaven, or man made everything up. Today we know a few things about religions, so, let us see what we have found.
There are reasons to believe that religions could be man-made, we say that they could be man-made, because we need to give the benefit of doubts.
Now, if we assume that religious are man-made, we need to search for the proof to establish that. Because that is hard to achieve, we may have to assume that they are manmade; then, we need to explain religions better and in different ways, we need to explain why they have been made up the way that they have been made up.
But religions might not be completely made up, because, if we consider the spiritual side there must be something in it. You see, all religions have a different spiritual side, so, we must assume that there is a spiritual side, and from this spiritual side people have made up our religious beliefs.
So, we believe that we know, why religions have been made up the way they are today, and we must explain religions better, if we want religions to continue to serve humanity, as they have done for thousands of years.
In our previous religious discussions, we have seen that there are many religions in the world; therefore, for that reason we may have to assume that religions are manmade. This does not mean that God does not exist, but it means that we should not follow blindly all religious doctrine whatever they say. Therefore, we must use our common sense and check that out, if what is being said may or may not be true.
Now, if we are talking about the Bible, the first thing that comes to my mind, is whether the seven days of at the beginning of the Bible, were seven days or thousands of years. Then, we want to prove that what is written in the Bible is the truth, which might not be. Look at our article, Flood in the days of Noah, where we have proof that the flood was not as universal as the writers of the Bible want us to believe. We believe that the flood happened, but it did not cover the entire world.
Therefore, it is time that mankind wakes up and sees the truth, I know that this is going to hurt many believers, but the truth is that man wrote the Bible, perhaps it was God inspiration at the beginning; but then they wrote and re-wrote the Bible, knowing that if they wrote it in a certain way, they could control the believer under them. This is what I believe myself, but then I might be wrong. So, I want to talk to our religious friends to see what they think about it.
Talking about religious issues
The other day I met Mark and we talked about these religious issues, in our talks we concluded that we don’t like the way the Bible is being explained to the believers; today there are things that seem wrong. With this view in mind we did not mean that the Bible is wrong, but the way that people use the bible might be wrong.
You see, there is the fact that when the Bible was written for the first time, everything was different from today, therefore, the Bible was written according to those time to guide the people of those times, therefore, if the Bible was to be written today, it would have been written in a different way.
Now, keeping in mind what we have said, I and Mark believe that it is necessary to write a few articles to show what we mean about criticising the Bible, when we believe there are issues that don’t agree with our understanding of the Bible. Here we have to admit that this religious issue worries me; You see, most people don’t like to criticise the Bible openly, but it is becoming necessary to do it; because we want to show the world that what they are being told is wrong.

Religious discussions with friends
Religious discussions with Gino and Peter
A few days after I talked to Mark, I encountered Gino and Peter; this is Peter that said he believed in religions very much like Gino, we have met Peter before, where he said that there must be another explanation why the Bible claims that man was made from plain dirt.
Anyhow, after chatting about a few happy events, we talked about religions, and asked them whether they had given any thought about what we were discussing last time we met.
Well they said, we have indeed thought about it and we still believe that there must be another explanation, why the Bible says that man was made from plain dirt. Yes, indeed there can be more than another explanation, it is likely that there are several explanations, which falls in line with what we have been thinking that religions are man-made. Now, we must look at the reasons why man wanted that God would create man from plain dirt.
As we have said, about the creation of man before, man cannot be created from dirt, because even God has got to be subject to the laws of nature, because God first and foremost uses the natural ways to create anything, we believe that this is God ways; then we want to point out that there was no need for God to make us from clay; because we were there in the form of animals.
But the ancient Jews, wanted that their God more powerful than all the other gods put together, so, they gave their God this extra power, and their God was so powerful that could even create a man from plain dirt.
Here Peter comes in and says do you see what we mean? They (the Jews) wanted this Super God to have so much powers that was even able to create a man from dirt.
Can you just imagine how powerful a god must be, since this God could create a man from plain dirt? He would indeed be Omnipotent and nothing and no one could we more powerful than this God, we hope that you see what we mean here.
Perhaps this idea came about when man started to make statues, and, in their fantasies, wished that those statues were real people or animals. Therefore, they started to think that God could be able to do that, and thus, the whish that God could make those statues become alive was born.
I said, I see what you mean, but even this is not enough for a real explanation.
Thanks for trying anyhow.
This is all what was said about religions at this encounter.
Jesus Christ is hope for the world
What we should believe about religions
During our religious discussions, we are having difficulty in proving that God created life and everything else in the world; and then, it becomes even worse when we want to prove the existence of God, because even God existence is put to the test. Sometimes I start thinking that the atheists might be right, when they say that there is no god. But God and religions are the fundamental rules that in a way or another guarantees justice; I hope you see what I mean?
There is also the fact, that I cannot explain to myself everything about life, therefore, I believe that there is a god because there is life; and also, for most people if there is no god there is no hope, or meaning about our lives.
Can you imagine that there are no gods, and people that happen to suffer in this world cannot even think of something that gives them hope, what sort of world is this? Would these people that find life hard despair even more?
I know that we have even called this hub, Religions could be manmade, but this does not mean that there must not be a god in any shape or form. Anyhow, there are reasons to believe that religions are manmade, but there is also the possibility that God exists, and God is life, as we have explained in our article, God exists because life exists.
Here I want to paste an article I found on the internet, that shows you what other people think about God.
Anyhow, since God can be an invention of our mind, I am going to write this theory, where I am going to describe how I see God.
I believe that we have said enough in this article, so, see you with our next article, where we are talking about the creation of man. See you soon.
May God bless us all.
