Proof of God, a ramble

I always questioned all the arguments for the existence of  God.  None made any sense to me.  One thing, however, struck me as being a real possibility.   Revelation.  Manifestation.  God here and now.  God actually talking to yah!  But,  then, look at who he chooses to talk to, at least according to the so-called holy books.  He saves Lot, who promptly gets drunk and has sex with his daughters.  (His wife turning into a pillar of salt must have unhinged him)  Altho…to be fair…they seduced him.  And  boys will be boys.  But, if there were 50 or so like Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah,  God would have spared both towns.   Anyway.  Moving up through the centuries to Jesus,  who promises eternal life to those who follow him, completely overlooking the obvious result that the intellectual midgets who become braindead at baptism (too much time under water?) would use those words to seek out and destroy all who do not believe.   And then there’s Mohammed.  Mind you, at least the Koran is direct about how to live, and is honest about holy war.  (What you see is what you get.)  Too bad so many of us non-muslims fail to read it.  If we did,  we would know where we really stand with our muslim neighbors.

After looking at that stuff,  I was about to give up on the whole thing,  and return to an old teen-age idea of mine to start a religion based around Crom (the Cimmerians’ god in Howard’s Conan stories) when I spotted my daughter returning from high school.   She has no belief at all.  Just sees no purpose in it.  And is one of the most generous and kind people I know.  God has not so far looked her up.  And, I guess if God isn’t going to talk to someone like her, I have to harbour suspicions of his judgement.

Crom, here I come.   And,  for those who like their gods from books with no author…there’s always Odin and the Aesir and Vanir.
