God must be a Sadist

I know this will offend few people who have been trying very hard to change my views but Am not a woman of Faith.

My deep conviction that religion is irrational and encouraged superstition has only grown stronger with the passing years. There is not a shred of evidence to support the truth that anyone has seen God.Even those who believe in him have little justification about his existence as omnipotent and just.Whatever evidence we have is on the contrary.God fearing parents who have never harmed anyone in the case of Nirbhaya have to fight their battles alone for the justice of their daughter who suffered at the hands of barbaric rapists,the gentlest of people suffer while thieves and the corrupt prosper .

I cannot accept a God who is selective in granting his grace ,or who is blind .And why should i worship a MIGHTY AVENGER who must be constantly appeased is no God at all !.However I do not dismiss the power of prayer altogether- I feel that one does not have to believe in God to concede that Prayer has Power,all that prayer does is comfort the person in times of stress and helps one to to ponder within in silence and often we have  a solution ...I know this might sound selfish to some but i feel living a good life is the only religion ...A life full of giving happiness and also finding it for oneself ....

I shall sum up my words by quoting Russell who said " I believe in using words, not fists, in honesty not  greed, in having a good time, in consuming good food ..and  above all I believe in Sex ."

I think its my duty as an educated adult to separate the sublime from ridiculous banter of the gurus and derive inspiration from living legends who are normal and flawed yet they faulter,learn and walk in pride ...
My husband's grandfather on his wheelchair recently visited the temple in pouring rain so he could wash his sins and meet his Maker after he dies. As an agnostic , I have no such comfort. And neither do I have any regrets ...

I shall end this by my favorite line from Shelley- If God has spoken, why isn't the universe not convinced .

This is how so ever a controversial topic and can be discussed about for ever.. While I dont agree on 'Sadist' part but I agree that WE the human has made him look like one.. The easier way to live is how you have already defined for yourself and as it should be.. Cheers to Life!

Religion and God could have been two different things.

Religion was the science then, the norms which great beings like Krishna or Ram could have used to maintain the delicate balance of the eco system.
The science that goes behind it seems to be just lost in passing of the information from the generation to generation.


God - we made the great men God as they seemed to have every solution to the then janta.

have u seen George Carlin's take on this? check it out.. loved your post.. :) The idea of God that has been prevalent the most is just a fiction.. Whatever that is happening, God has no control over it.. God, according to me, is an External Parent (http://shbhk.blogspot.in/2011/08/god-contd.html) on whom we dump our responsibilities..
Very truly written, prayers, etc are for the spiritual solace.. It helps calm the mind and think clearer.
