Your Brain on God

I have always felt that God was a made up thing, and could never buy in to the hoax. For some people apparently, that is not the case. Scientists are now looking at a theory that believing in God is “all in your head”. This explains a lot800px-easter-eggs-11 of people I have come to know in my time…A crazy old boss who told you one thing only to give me shit for doing it. She was born again, and felt God’s presence. A courier friend of mine that was a huge pot head. He “found” God…Probably after a hit from the Bong… An ex-girlfriend that went from stripper to legal secretary, and had commitment problems. She was a born again Christian too…
The stronger the person’s belief, the more I doubt that they are OK in the head, or are really looking for some help. Sad. None of these people were bad, but they were vulnerable and impressionable. Kind of like children are. Hence, I think that religion preys on weakness, and we should all be wary…Avoid it like a loan from the mafia…

  1. it seems you are the one who is wrong in the head. If someone changes from a stripper to a legal secretary is that not a good thing? You must be a man who is ready to exploit women for your own gain. You also have a lot of pent up anger maybe you need the peace of God!

  2. You are right about the ex…
    The way I phrased that may have seemed that she wasn’t making progress in life. She was or is. My overall point of the article wasn’t that these people were bad, but just that they needed some guidance, or assistance. I think that if someone needs help, they shouldn’t turn to an imaginary man in the sky, but a medical professional, counseling, group meetings, a close friend, whatever.

    We all do things in our lives that we regret, but for people that chronically make bad decisions, they should be given the help they need, not read an old book that means nothing in the modern world, and hope that God will save them from their problems. It won’t happen.

    I am also not an angry person, and as I don’t believe in God, don’t need to make peace with him.
