Well over 2,500 years ago, a bunch of elderly tribesmen theorized that the heavens and the earth were created by an all powerful god . This god could also grant you an everlasting life after death. Heaven was a place that every person should strive to get to and hell was the place to avoid.

The gods evolved over time but were generally very unpleasant, mean, surly, uncooperative, angry savage, warmongering genocidal maniac gods that were quick to punish millions of people and banish them to his special hell for all eternity.

Over time, The God Theory evolved and became increasing more complicated as more gods were introduced. We now have Yahweh, Elohim, Jehovah, Jesus, Holy Ghost, the Father, and Allah. We even have a three-headed god. All of this was written down in Holy Scriptures called the Torah, the Bible, the Quran, and the Book of Mormons.

When inventing a god, the most important thing is to claim it is invisible, inaudible, and imperceptible in every way. Otherwise, people will become skeptical when it appears to no one, is silent and does nothing.

So, how's The God Theory holding up to rigorous scientific testing?

Religion is suggesting that there exists this huge infrastructure of Heaven with gods and angels and Hell with daemons,. Perhaps they can show us some miniscule amount of evidence of it outside the Torah, the Bible, the Quran and the Book of Mormons and its derivative works. Show us evidence of this huge infrastructure of yours in history books or in scientific writings without any references to any holy scriptures.

Holy Scriptures, n.
The sacred books of our holy religion, as distinguished from the false and profane writings on which all other faiths are based.

Why is it that people who believe in gods, angels and daemons don't believe in goblins, ghosts, zombies, dragons, unicorns, giants, centaurs, garden fairies, trolls, BigFoot, the Lochness monster, psychics and Martians?

Their Bible has a talking serpent, a talking ass, a staff that turns into a snake, food falls from the sky, a man lives inside a whale for three days, it rains for forty days and forty nights and people walk on water.

Religion, especially organized religion, and science has had over 2,500 years to show evidence of the events in the bible and have failed to prove anything.

  • No scientific evidence of their all powerful one-headed or three-headed God,
  • no scientific evidence of creationism,
  • no scientific evidence of life after death,
  • no scientific evidence of angels and Heaven,
  • no scientific evidence of daemons and hell,
  • no scientific or historical evidence of the Exodus,
  • no scientific or historical evidence of Noah's Flood, and
  • no scientific or historical evidence of Jesus.

The God Theory has not done well at all.

It's time for us to bury these stupid, fraudulent superstitious ideas and push for science over religion.

The belief that God created us and that there is life after death is merely an assertion.

Our current crop of Gods do not have any more basis in reality than the Aztec, Mayan, Inca, Anastasi, Egyptian, Roman and Greek gods.

Religion is derived from the childhood of our species, from the bawling fearful period of infancy. It comes from the time when we did not know that we lived on an orb, we thought we lived on a disc. We did not know that we went around the Sun or that the sky was not a dome, and that we didn't know that there was a germ theory to explain disease and an innumerable theories for the explanation for things like famine It comes from a time when we had no good answers, but because we are pattern seeking animals, a good thing about us, and because we would prefer even a conspiracy theory or junk theory over no theory at all, a bad thing about us, this was our first attempt at philosophy, just as in some ways, it was our first attempt at science. It was all founded on and remains founded on a complete misapprehension about the origin, first of the universe, and second about human nature. We now know a great deal about the origins of the universe and a great deal about our own nature.
