Nathan Bond's TART Remarks

Religion: Respect? Ridicule!

The Cosmic Mugabe

with 7 comments

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe said Friday “only God” can remove him from office, in comments ahead of next week’s tense run-off election.

Rob and God are perfect soul mates. God is a “Cosmic Mugabe” of sorts.

On God’s watch here on earth, the few have much, and many have little or well-nigh nothing. People die from disease, hunger and violence. Indifference and an obsession with self-importance define the characters of both. Although both have critics, most people are too scared, too lazy, or too dumb to kick these idiots in the balls.

God won’t lift a finger to remove old Rob.

God won’t lift a finger. Period. Except a middle finger to life on earth.

  1. This is a reply to ‘Hans’. How very arrogant of you, to assume that Nathan, or any other atheist, has not read your bible — or any other so-called holy text. I have read your bible, cover to cover. It is a foul collection of the most horrendous tales of misogyny, racism, bigotry, and contradictions ever written — with perhaps the sole counter-example of the Koran.

    Maybe *you* should read your bible, rather than assuming an arrogant, hubristic posture toward atheists?

  2. It is God’s will that no soul shall be lost, yet if one chooses not to seek his face, well then, thats one’s own prorogative. You percieve God as to being a magician and it is clear to me, that you have never really looked to see, what the Bible tells us, what God is. Most Christians haven’t a clue, what the Bible tells us, what God is. The other day, a Pastor said to a freind of mine, you don’t have to worry about what the Bible say’s, you must just beleave in Jesus. He couldn’t answer my freinds question and he himself does not know, where how and what is Jesus Christ. It is like one building a house without the plans. I should think, that the building inspector, would never aprove the house that is built.

  3. Hans
    Never forget that I am convinced to a statistical certainty that there is no “God”. “God” has no influence over what happens, or not. Because “God” isn’t. I simply call for people who give “God” credit for “good things” to likewise give “God” debit entries for “bad things”.
    But, Hans, if there be a “God” I, for one, would expect, nay demand, that it looks after it’s own. Or fuck off. Irrespective of some yesteryear fruit stealing.
    Maybe we should give “God” a really humungous Fruit&Veg voucher. Maybe then “God” will finally live down the loss of his precious fruit? And start giving a damn.

  4. Nathan, more people are murded in SA every year, than are killed in the war in Irak. The murders are not because of religion or in the name of God and also affect our children. So, why aren’t you also obsessed with them?
    Jesus came to forgive and save souls, not flesh and blood. His Fathers teachings are about love and if man has abused Gods name, don’t blame God?

  5. Fair question, EJ. No dig suspected. I think it dangerous to base decisions on premises not supported by evidence. As far as I know, nobody has been killed in the name of the Tooth Faery and Santa has never told someone to invade a sovereign country. In the Islamic world every single social decision is based on the absolute inerrant fact that the Koran contains word by word instruction by “God”.This is countered by Evangelicals who are certain beyond a velleity of doubt that the Bible is such instruction by “God”.
    Religion dumbs down our children and perpetuates tarradiddles as fact.
    If we could all outgrow “God” as we do the Tooth Faery and Santa our world would be a better place.
    From Cain’s invitation to Abel, “Let’s go out in the fields”, through Srebrenica and 9/11 and Bali and Gujarat, to Turkey and Beslan and Hai al-Amaal, and from the Islamboeli in Ossetia and the Djemaah Islamijah in Pantai Jimbaran to breaking news on CNN, singular interpretation of the dictates of some “god” destroys lives.
    Religion is not just ridiculous. It’s dangerous.

  6. Nathan..this is an honest question, not a dig at you. Nor am I going to try to debate you out of your point of view. I often wonder why radical atheists (as you have called yourself) spend so much of their lives and time (and dedicate blogs) to the cause of disproving God’s existence. You see, I don’t believe in the tooth fairy for example and that’s cool. Maybe some people do, but because I am absolutely certain without a doubt that the tooth fairy does not exist I am very relaxed about not giving it another thought. It’s not worth the time of my day. If God does not exist why do you give the subject so much of your life?

  7. Nathan, the more I read your blog, the more I realise your ignorance.
    1Cor. 14:38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.
