Thinking of becoming religious in the hope of leading a meaningful, righteous life or are you just a little bit "God-curious"?
Despite the fact that religious organisations such as Christian churches have been steadily losing members in droves over recent years there are still die-hard followers who are only too keen to bring you down to their level and try to convince you with all sorts of devious explanations to join their particular brand of belief.
So, here are a few of the common tricks these apparently over-friendly people will try to put past you in order to suck you into their webs of deceit and lies.
* God is real: There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever, not even a single shred, as to the presence of God or any other supernatural being.
* Evidence of God cannot be disproven: Completely absurd since it is impossible to disprove something that hasn't even been proven.
* Existence of God is beyond the realm of science: This is the latest deceptive trick in saying something that is completely meaningless and obvious at the same time since, how would anyone know that anyway? There is no such thing as "beyond science".
* God is love: A completely contrived metaphor designed to appeal to your emotions.
* You will be a better person: Rubbish. There have been studies that reveal religious people are no more or less happy or honest than normal people.
* You have a spirit and an afterlife: This is the ultimate guilt-trip religious nuts will lay on you. Of course, they don't know there is some sort of afterlife and they are using the "Hell alternative" as a dishonest fear tactic to lure you.
* Many people have believed in God for centuries: So what? Many people have believed in all sorts of superstitions such as witches, ghosts, and fairies for centuries but does that make them real?
In reality, there is no such thing as God and we were not created. We know for sure how life started but nobody knows yet how matter came to be. There are many theories but the theory of God and creation has been long since thrown out the window and modern, civilized society has moved on way past clinging onto primitive, naive superstitions.
So, You be the judge and ask yourself the question, "Am I that gullible and impressionable as to believe a load of utter tripe for the benefit of a few dishonest charlatans whose business it is to manipulate others for their own personal gain?"
