GROG; that’s Get Rid Of God. Actually it’s not about God at all. He (it) is collateral damage. This is about encouraging critical thinking about the belief in resurrection and a life after dying. Where does the idea come from that there is something after we die? We feel we have a spirit and it is the religious who believe the spirit continues after death and exists in a spirit world. Isn’t this just wishful thinking?
Of the various religions, the monotheistic, messianic faiths, stand out because they claim their god is the creator of everything and when humans die they will be resurrected to exist forever either in heaven or hell. This is the most inane of scams, getting people to fall in love with themselves so strongly that they hypnotize themselves into believing they will live forever. It is the supreme scam of resurrection. Since this dream of salvation and resurrection took hold in the early centuries of Christianity the delusion has been greatly magnified to include the entire universe. Those first Christians were Jews, already hooked on being the chosen ones, who got hooked again believing that resurrection was imminent. Salvation was and still is believed to be near at hand. If it hadn’t been for the Roman emperors who got hooked on the dream, the Jesus Christ delusion would not have lived nor Christianity survived. What a pair, the Roman Empire and the Catholic Church. It certainly changed the course of history, which by the way, it is still doing.
It is the perfect scam. Once believed, it is almost impossible to wake up to the reality of being taken for a ride. The delusion that human beings are special, must be educated out of existence. Those already claimed by this delusion are lost in their dream world and believe they will be saved. Half of the earth’s population believe they are the chosen ones and they are willing to kill each other to make their vision of the end of the world come true because “God” is on their side. Each side believes that they are the chosen ones. If this is their God’s plan, then that God does indeed work in mysterious ways!
This delusion of being special, chosen, and entitled needs to be educated out of existence. For every creature there is but one life, not two.
