ONE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE BUT TWO DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT CONCEPTIONS
The universe is a huge entity stretching 14 billion years x 6 trillion miles (distance light travels in one year). Just in the Milky Way alone, there is an estimated 4 billion planets. In this immensity, there must be many life forms who like Homo Sapiens - exercise Free Will. While there is only one God of the universe, there is for mankind (homo sapiens) two dramatically different conceptions of God – there is God and then there is ALLAH (THE ANTI GOD).
A REVOLUTIONARY REVOLUTION IN THE CONCEPTION OF GOD
For most of mankind - there is God - the Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Glorious Exalted Creator of the Universe, a God of All Peace, Love, Goodness and Mercy - an All Wise, All Loving God for all mankind.
A GOD OF MORAL PERFECTION
(If you have already read the article “A REVOLUTIONARY REVOLUTION IN THE CONCEPTION OF GOD” then skip down to “ALLAH (THE ANTI GOD”)
Following are self evident truths of a GOD of MORAL PERFECTION:
GOD AS THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE - THE CREATOR OF ALL LIVING THINGS IS PERFECION - MORAL PERFECTION
ALL TEACHINGS OF GOD - A PERFECT GOD – MUST BE MORAL PERFECTION
ANY WRITINGS IN ANY RELIGIOUS TEXT THAT ARE NOT MORAL PERFECTION ARE NOT THE TEACHINGS OF GOD BUT THE TEACHINGS OF MAN
AS MORAL PERFECTION - GOD IS ALL PURE PEACE AND LOVE, MERCY AND GOODNESS
BEING A GOD OF MORAL PERFECTION - GOD IS ANTI - WAR: THE EMBODIMENT OF PURE NON VIOLENCE
ALL OF MANKIND ARE CREATED EQUAL AND THEIR LIVES ARE SACRED TO GOD
GOD IS NOT AN IRRATIONAL, IMMORAL, EVIL BEING. IF GOD IS IRRATIONAL, IMMORAL, EVIL THEN GOD IS NOT MORAL PERFECTION AND THEREFORE SINCE GOD CANNOT BE IMPERFECT AN IRRATIONAL, IMMORAL, EVIL GOD IS NOT GOD
A God of MORAL PERFECTION is a God of Pure Peace and Love, Goodness and Mercy, an All Wise, All Loving God for all mankind. All human beings are created in the image of God. All mankind is created equal and all their lives are precious and sacred to God. As the Glorious Exalted Creator of the Universe and all living things - God is the embodiment of MORAL PERFECTION.
As MORAL PERFECTION, God is the embodiment of All Pure Peace - the very essence of God is ANTI VIOLENCE, ANTI - WAR. All war and violence are abhorrent to God - an affront to the intelligence He bestowed on mankind. God did not endow Homo Sapiens with intelligence to war against fellow Homo Sapiens like beasts in the jungle. War is an abomination against God and the worse evil and sin Homo Sapiens can commit against God. It is the GREATEST SIN THAT MAN CAN COMMIT AGAINST GOD. God never intervened in any battle, never lead an army into battle, changed the weather allowing (His) side to be victorious or any other form of divine intervention etc. There is no - "His" side”. WAR IS ANTI GOD. War is anti - creation. WAR IS THE EXTINCTION OF HUMANITY FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH. All teachings that pertain to be from God preaching, encouraging or engaging in war are not from God but are the teachings of evil men.
God is a non - religious being. For God, there exists no concept of believers or non – believers, no chosen people. God is God for ALL MANKIND. There is no one truth - no such thing as the one and only true religion. Belief in any religion does not make you a superior human being or give you any special privileges over any other human. It does not give you any God given right to enslave, discriminate against, kill, terrorize, rape, loot, non believers in your faith in the name of God. All such teachings are not from God but are created by evil men to usurp God’s divine power and utilize this power for evil justifying it as the will of God.
The greatest evil that anyone can commit is acts of violence against human beings in the name of and to the greater glory of God. The second greatest evil that can be committed is to preach evil in the name of God inciting violence against human beings. The third greatest evil is to record in a so called holy book teachings of extermination, genocide, murder, hate, violence, terror, brutality against non - believers of the book and claim that these evil teachings are the divine, timeless word of God.
There are many ways to God. Even a total non - believer can ascend to Heaven provided he does not have an evil soul. Religion was invented by man as a vehicle to allow him to comprehend God. Because man is imperfect then religion is imperfect.
Each individual has the total and complete right to find his/her own way to God or not. Religious freedom is the right of all mankind. The right to build places of worship to practice ones religious beliefs non - violently – the religious teachings of a GOD OF PURE LOVE, PEACE. MERCY, GOODNESS, NON VIOLENCE is a corner stone of all civilized societies. The right to change one’s religion without fear of death. The right to freely preach and practice one’s religion without coercion or intimidation but with liberty and tolerance in any country. The right to explore the truth of any religious question, including the truth as to the origins, sources, and teachings of any religion. The unqualified liberty to question and decent from any religion and its teachings. The right to condemn all religious practices that violate human rights. The total and complete rejection of teachings of intolerance and bigotry. The right not to believe in God. Only an evil being would order people put to death for not believing in religion or deciding to change one’s beliefs from one religion to another, or believing in a different religion. God is a God of Peace and Love for all mankind. Any religious teaching that preaches hate, inequality, bigotry, rape, war, terror, extermination, murder, slaughter, death and destruction – that orders people killed, maimed or tortured as punishment are the teachings of man. Religious freedom is an unimpeachable right.
God gave man a Free Will to do Good or Evil, to explore the truth of any question including - His existence. Freedom of speech and expression are unimpeachable human rights. We have the right to reason, to explore, to seek the truth of any question - total freedom of thought. To think and reason without fear of jail/death. No one has the right to threaten, coerce, intimidate anyone with torture, prison or death for freely expressing, views that they do not agree with – no matter how abhorrent those views. We have the right to challenge any ideology, government, leaders of any state, heads of any organizations, the tenets and beliefs of any organization. The right to write any thought, read any book, pursue any intellectual enterprise in the arts, literature, sciences, paint any picture, draw any carature no matter how offense. Having given man intelligence, God believes that no man should be ruled by dictators.
God is not an egotist. God does not demand adoration. All teachings of God basking in his own glory are the teachings of man.
God wants every human being to come into His pure love of their own free will. He would never use force or the force of terror but only pure love. If God wanted to use violence He won’t need any prophet. All He has to do is make a world wide announcement that everyone must obey His teachings immediately or He’ll hang one person from every tree on the planet. Needless to say there would be immediate obedience but there would be no love - just fear of God’s power.
All mankind is created equal. God is not a racist.
God created woman as the equal of man. God is not a sexist. God is not a male chauvinist pig. Women and men are equal in the eyes of God. Women are the equal of men. Women are not valued by God as worth 50% of men. God did not create women to be the chattel or slaves of men. Females have full rights in society before the law, under the rule of law, can dress any way they freely desire without fear of death, walk the streets without a male relative escort, do any occupation, have the right to vote, the full right to participate in the governance of any society, be the leader or member of government of any country, receive all educational rights, drive planes, trains, automobiles, fly to the stars, choose their own husbands, do not have to accept arranged, forced or child marriages etc. No man whether husband, father, brother, relative, boyfriend, or stranger has the right to beat or mistreat a woman. Men who beat women are the lowest of the low. No woman can be forced to endure female circumcision. The right of women to complete educational, economic, legal, and political equality. These equal rights of women in society are very important. All teachings of the inferiority of women in any holy book/text/teaching are not the word/teachings of God but the word/teachings of man. If God is a sexist then God is no longer MORAL PERFECTION and therefore God is no longer God.
No man is the property of any other man - God is not a slaver. All human beings are created equal. All races are created equal. God does not wish that any human be a slave. No one person is the lesser of the other. Slavery is one of the most vile institutions ever created by man. Slavery is an obscenity to God. All human beings (no matter their race, color, creed, ethnic origins) have the full right to protection of their human rights and human dignity. To use religion to spread hate against other races and other religions in places of worship, employing television or any other medium, teaching hatred to the young in schools - this is evil incarnate. To use religion as an instrument of persecution and violence stands as an affront to the very concept of a God of PURE LOVE and PURE MERCY. If God is a racist, believes in persecution, slavery and violence then God is immoral and therefore no longer God.
As MORAL PERFECTION, GOD is the very essence of non violence. If GOD spoke just one word of violence - had just one violent thought - GOD would no longer be PERFECTION and therefore no longer GOD. GOD is not a violent being. If God committed just one act of violence or ordered an act of violence then God would no longer be MORAL PERFECTION and therefore no longer God. All words/teachings in any religious book that contain violence are not the word/teachings of GOD but the word/teachings of man.
As MORAL PERFECTION, GOD is the very essence of PURE LOVE. THE VERY EXISTENCE OF GOD IS PURE LOVE. IF GOD IS NOT THE EMBODIMENT OF PURE LOVE THEN GOD IS IMPERFECT AND THEREFORE SINCE GOD CANNOT BE IMPERFECT AND STILL BE GOD - A GOD WHO IS NOT THE EMBODIMENT OF PURE LOVE DOES NOT EXIST
All hate is abhorrent to God. As MORAL PERFECTION GOD has never spoken a word of hate. As the essence of pure love, as a being whose very existence is pure love God is totally incapable of hate. If God had just one hateful thought, spoke just one hateful word, then God would no longer be MORAL PERFECTION and therefore no longer PERFECT but since God cannot be imperfect and still be God a hateful God is no longer God. Again, ALL teachings of violence, hate, war, extermination, genocide, retaliation, terror, torture, maiming, rape, slavery, inequality, intolerance, in any so called holy book are not the word/teachings of God but the word/teachings of man.
As MORAL PERFECTION, God is ALL PURE MERCY. God is ALL PURE COMPASSION. GOD IS ALL PURE FORGIVENESS. God is ANTI DEATH PENALTY. God does not permit the killing of any human being for committing murder or committing mischief and corruption in the land or for any other reason - what-so-ever. God is totally and completely ANTI DEATH PENALTY. When the state executes criminals, the state is committing murder. In short, the state itself becomes a murderer. God is all mercy and forgiveness, love and compassion. Even the worst criminal murderers and killers in history like Hitler or Stalin or Muhammad (who roamed the earth to promote and commit atrocities and bloodshed) can come into the mercy and feel the love of God if they repent and ask God for forgiveness.
As MORAL PERFECTION, GOD is not a criminal. He is not a murderer. He is not a torturer. GOD has never killed or ordered the killing of any human being. He has never tortured or ordered the torture of any human being. He has never sent a storm or other calamity of nature to destroy any human being or city etc. If God killed just one human being (or any other alien life form throughout the universe who exercises free will) then God is a murderer and no longer Perfection and therefore God is no longer God.
As MORAL PERFECTION God is all PURE NON REVENGE. Retaliation is abhorrent to God and an obscenity against the very nature of God – an immoral violation of the PURE LOVE, PURE PEACE, PURE MERCY, PURE NON VIOLENCE, ANTI WAR, ANTI DEATH PENALITY MORAL PERFECTION of God.
God blessed man with an intelligence to reason, to explore, to seek the truth of any question – total freedom of thought. To think and reason without fear of jail/death. It is against the will of God to threaten anyone with death, torture or prison for freely exercising his God given brain. The human brain is the greatest gift God has ever bestowed on man. It was given to mankind to pursue - the arts, literature, sciences, intellectual pursuits. Its free exercise is the will of God. We hereby declare this right of humanity WITHOUT EQUIVOCATION.
All mankind has the right to freedom and democracy, equality before the law, freedom of action, freedom of thought, right to elect their leaders. God does not want dictators and tyrants to rule over other men. Freedom of speech, and expression are unimpeachable rights. If God does not believe in the right of mankind to Freedom and Democracy then God is no longer MORAL PERFECTION and therefore God is no longer God.
While God clearly has the power - He does not have the moral right to destroy the Earth. There are many different ways mankind can go to extinction. The end can come through the actions of man such as a nuclear holocaust, or the invention of a disease. Another way is for a comet to smash into the earth. Global warming could set off natural processes making the Earth uninhabitable leading to extinction. Definitely in 5 billion years, the sun will supernova destroying the earth. If God intervenes in these natural or human processes in any way and destroys the Earth because he is pissed off with Homo Sapiens or any other reason then God is the greatest mass murderer ever and God is no longer God.
