The Controversial Subject of God
The topic of god is a very controversial subject that has been argued about ever since the beginning of mankind. Because God is so controversial, many battles have been fought to preserve one’s own beliefs. I myself, have my own beliefs on what I think god is and how god was created.
Many theologians have different beliefs of who god is and why he exists. But the most common answer you will receive is, “God exists because he has to exist.” They would argue that without God, nothing would exist, no us, no earth, no galaxy, no universe, nothing. Because how could anything besides God create such a perfect world. How could anything but a perfect being itself create something so perfect. And it can’t be just mere chance that this perfect world just happened to exist. So theologians would give reasons somewhat like this to prove that god exists because “God has to exists”.
But there are also many pieces of evidence that work against the theory that God does exists. The first and most obvious fact that proves that religion does not exist is all of the religions that contradict each other. So if God wanted to make it obvious that he did exist then why would he show different ideas to different people, which in turn causes many wars resulting in many deaths. Which brings me to another argument, which many people stand by, which is if God is perfect and all knowing then why would he let humans kill each other, better yet why would he even let humans die? So if God already knows everybody’s path and what they will do in their life then why would God let humans commit such horrible acts.
Why could God not create a world where humans freely choose make good decisions more often than bad? Like for example why couldn’t humans be able to make more philanthropic decisions as opposed to evil decisions that work against mankind. Isn’t it possible that a world like this couldn’t still be filled with as much free will as this world? If this is true then why wouldn’t God have created a better world with less violence, because he didn’t, some could argue that he is not perfect, therefore not God.
The next point which religion seems to contradict itself is when it comes to the topic of sin. If humans are not supposed to sin, and they will go to hell if they do not repent their sins, then why would God let human’s sin in the first place? Although God cannot mess with human’s free will, he could take out the obstacles which tempt people to sin in the first...
