Are you one of those religious people who get up every Sunday morning looking forward to going to the church? But did you know that there are 8 countries where religion is illegal?
Believe it or not, this is the truth. Although we are all talking about the democracy and the freedom of speech 24/7, we all know that we are just fooling ourselves. First of all, we are all aware of the problem every news reporter in the world faces every day and, even though some people think that the only job they have is to sit in front of the camera and read the text, which even the monkey can do, their job is actually one of the most dangerous in the world. But if you think that this is nonsense, what about the freedom of belief?
I know that there are countries that forbid their residents to believe in any other God than the one that the government approved, but this became ridiculous lately. Every non-believer will agree that there is no real God. God is just something that helped people survive through the centuries. It isn’t even the force. It is just something that people learned about and gave them the faith of tomorrow. Even when they are wars, people believe that there is some purpose of it because the God wouldn’t allow it if he didn’t have a plan. It really is easier this way. So why wouldn’t some people let them be?
On the other hand, some people say that there is actually only one God for the whole universe. The only difference is his appearance for each believer. And the name that people gave him. Every story that they hear is made by their standards and culture. But it is all the same. God is supposed to perform miracles. And he does. At least according to believers.
The other thing why people got so obsessed with God is the afterlife. If they weren’t, they would spend their whole life looking for the elixir of immortality instead of enjoying the opportunities life gave them. And it is easier when they lose someone. They don’t want to accept the fact that they are buried underground where their bodies would rot or be eaten by worms. Instead of that, people believe that their loved ones are again young and agile, running through the fields, riding horses, loving again, and taking care of the ones who remained on Earth. But we can’t know that. We can just assume and choose what to believe in.
