GROG

GROG Get Rid Of God. Actually this is a bit misleading; it’s not really about God, but gods would be collateral damage for this blog.  Since beginning of GROG, my focus has shifted to something more basic than just gods. This is the almost universal belief in the supernatural. From the fears of the unknown and at that time unknowable, the early humans created the supernatural realm of the spirit world. This belief has been with humans ever since. We humans have been saddled with the delusion of an afterlife in heaven. So now, since my blog isn’t really about gods, but about the delusion that gods and the supernatural exist, I might change to: get rid of delusion. GROD

This belief in the supernatural has been with us from the beginning, for hundreds of thousands of years. It is the basis for all religions, which have, for the most part been beneficial in the evolution of human cultures and society. There have been many religions and many supernatural entities over the ages, but for the past two thousand years there has been a shift in supernatural belief by the spread of monotheism. Of the various monotheistic faiths, the proselytizing, messianic faiths, based on the “God of Abraham” stand out. They are in contrast with other religions in their claim that their God is the creator of everything and that the faithful will be resurrected after death and exist forever either in heaven or hell. They believe that the earth and all of humanity is supervised by their creator-God and that He has a plan to end life on earth and return all faithful souls to heaven.

This delusion of the supernatural must be recognized for what it is, a creation of the human mind. Belief in a supernatural realm is a very human belief, but belief in resurrection and an eternal afterlife takes it beyond humanness to the realm of mental illness. For every creature there is just one life, not two.

  1. You speak only about mortal Bio-DNA-gradable, Bio-logical human beings and Death.
    You didn’t once refer to the magical human egg-cell & sperm-cell that caused the circle of human life on this Earth that is moving as we revolve and evolve around the sun. That is a fact. You are missing out too many Scientific facts.
    There’s always been a cause and effect that is never random when it comes to the fight between GOOD & EVIL, that affects us, as we fight to find CURES for Ancient Infestation’s Germ-Warfare-GERMS and INSANE Murderers/Terrorists’ Death wishes for us all.

    I wish you a Happy and Peaceful Christ-mass on this planet of Darwinian Apes, (I hope I don’t hear ‘Bah Humbug’!)

  2. Hi Sibyl X, Happy Winter Solstice! Thanks for your commenting on my post and it would be helpful to know more about you. I don’t understand well your position. Mine: We have only one life and there is no supernatural dimension. Religion is a scam based on the delusion of resurrection, a scam that has been taking its toll for 2000 years. GROG

    1. Hi. I am wondering how or why my stance differs from your stance? Peace of mind, comes, I think, when there is only one “you”. When all of one’s inner selves agree to live in the present moment, that’s peace of mind.
      Do you believe in heaven?

  3. Hello again. What I stand for is all in my blog and has nothing to do with taking an uninformed stance.
    You only have to look in your Conversations were you left a reply on Dave Dubay, The Painted Porch, post, Agnostic monotheism. My replies were just above yours.

    Re: When all of one’s inner selves agree to live in the present moment, that’s peace of mind, for the one and only ”you”!
    I Totally Agree.
    As for the question: Do you believe in heaven? I’d have to say, of cause, because you are referring to the sky.
    If you were referring to Heaven, every Galaxy is surrounded by it’s own atmospheric/Cosmic SPACE referred to as the Heavens..
    If you are referring to that special place known as HEAVEN, I’d have to say, ‘Oh yes’ and it’s got nothing to do with only a vague hope or stance.

  4. Hi. I’m a little disappointed you haven’t allowed my reply to appear as it looks as if I haven’t bothered to answer your questions. I was being as thoughtful and as honest as I could be.
    Dear GROG, you can’t get rid of the GREAT OMNIPRESENT, OMNISCIENT, DIVINING COSMOS: as well as being ALL THINGS to all mankind, it’s the sparky, static electricity air that we breath.
    Anyway The SON GOD, KING of Kings won’t, can’t allow it Dearly Beloved Son.

    When our work Surviving here is done,
    Starlight appears as our life here is ending
    enveloped in feelings of bliss as we’re wending.
    This time is golden and peace has begun
    HEAVEN’S been earned and UTOPIA WON.
    Goodwill to all Humane Beings here.

    1. Sorry Sibyl, but I really don’t understand what you are trying to say. Are you a religious nut or just a bit nutty? “Starlight appears as our if here is ending…” What is this? Poetry or delusion?

      1. Nutty? How quaint, and not really insulting.
        Sorry GROG, I didn’t know anything about the subject I’m now involved in until Phenomenon happened to me. Now I get told the answers I need to know, So, I can understand how hard it must be for someone like you, who’s trying so hard to make sure that he’s not conned again.
        I have been excruciatingly aware from the beginning how crazy I might sound, that’s why I only join in with bloggers discussing Atheist, Theist, God theories.
        HEAVEN isn’t an imaginary place. It’s the Galaxy called Andromeda.
        I am told that It’s Lacerta Blazer is HEAVENS ORACLE.

        My little Nirvana poem is about White Stars’ Cosmic tunnels of Love. They are Scientists’ Theoretical White-holes.

      2. Yes Nan! ”I am told”, and it is a defining element to explain all that I’ve written. I don’t take personal credit for my SIBYL communications’ messages. And I’m not lying or delusional. Science can prove it.
        If one didn’t know better, what you have written could just as easily sound as if you were agreeing with me.

      3. Dear Nan, I’ve read some of your posts and liked them very much.
        They make complete sense to me given the experiences you’ve had at the hands of Tyrannical DOGMA that doesn’t sound at all Christian to me. You can thank Judas’ version for that due to his FEAR of Reprisals.
        I am not Religious, an academic, a bigot or an atheist.
        Apart from being a SIBYL Psychic I would call myself a Norse Christian, interfaith discerning, Free-thinking Gentile. I like & respect many people but I kow-tow to nobody.
        Oh! I’m also an Empath, which helps me understand other peoples’ conflicting points of view. Good people are Good Citizens, what more could one ask for?

        Lots of love

    2. Hi Sibyl…again. I’ve read your poem again and see your story in clearer light.
      In the end we relinquish the breathe that gives us life as starlight appears and we become a non-entity having experienced the miracle of being born on earth surrounded by the majesty of a universe which we are only beginning to understand. “Goodwill to all Human Beings here.” GROG

  5. Hi GROG. Nice to know what your moniker means now. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the like. I read through the comments here. One thing stood out: death anxiety. I look forward to the day (not likely in our lifetime) when the vast majority of our species will embrace and make peace with their mortality.

    Nice to meet you.

    1. Thanks for getting in touch. Ah, the marvelous, mysterious brain. After all, it is who we are. For as much as I have read about con games, rip offs, and shysters, no one has come out or even tried to explain the scam of resurrection. Dawkins and Harris need to get together and write “The End of Delusion”. GROG (Instead of grog, maybe it should be grod?)
