Without god — Tweet of The Day

Only a handful of people –my friends– know that the majority of my analogy-tweets stem from some crazy comment by any of my mostly Christian friends and family.

This time it was my cousin who said to me that my life was surely gloomy and empty because god … was everything.

**facepalm**

god is everything? What does that even mean?

Want to favorite it or retweet it? Here’s the Twitter link.

How can god be ‘everything’ and not be perceptible in any way, let alone demonstrable! But that’s material for another tweet post.

Please, don’t miss the point, technically a glass that is full of air isn’t empty, but by definition it is, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to pour anything into it.

Think differently? Let us know in the comments. (◕‿~)✿

    Air is composed of 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, and the remaining 1% or so has argon, co2, trace gases, and sometimes water vapor. All these elements are found within our UNIVERSE which is composed of energy and matter. So if you want to say “god” is these things, fine! But, don’t anyone tell me he/she/it is a personal being of which we are made in his/her/its image! When’s the last time you talked to air? Christians, Muslims, Jews do it all the time. I know, I’m full of hot air. LOL

    I don’t think people really think about what they say. Even their prayers are often verbatim chants that they all recite in unison. How many of them actually think about what is coming out of their mouths? They’ve been taught their entire lives that it’s wrong to disbelieve in their god and when someone decides to do the right thing and question that belief others just start spewing more chants.

    “God is everything” is just another one of those vague statements made in an attempt to guilt you into believing. It’s just as bad as the fucking vague things postmodernists say except instead of invoking a philosophical slippery slope which always ends in “we can’t know anything” they go the other direction and just say “we already know everything” because by believing in their god and their god being “everything” that somehow counts as knowledge in their weird universe.

    My grandpa is getting older and the reality finally hit him that he might not be around for much longer than ten more years. Because of his realization he has turned into this obnoxious god-fearing critic. He has to tell everyone how important god is, despite the fact that his life up until now makes his statements extremely hypocritical. It’s ironic to me that the nature of self-deception allows people to do things that are obviously wrong, such as judging others and invading their privacy by pushing your beliefs on them, all the while feeling good and righteous about it.

    The “God is everything” folks are just the people that are too afraid to ask the hard questions and, for a microsecond, entertain the idea that they might be wrong.
