Proof That God Doesn't Exist,
Prayer Doesn't Work
And Religion Creates Psychosis
"A believer is a bird in a cage. A freethinker is an eagle parting the clouds with tireless wing."
On the first page of this website is a prayer: "God, protect me from your followers." Well,
needless to say, it doesn't work, thereby providing concrete proof that God doesn't exist and that prayer doesn't
work. And those who have squeaked through the supernatural protective net have expressed psychosis, which proves
that religion creates it.
Some of the nutty messages received include the following. These comments are so generic and
typical that they apply to basically any blind believer, with the emphasis on blind.
"Your time will come!" This remark could be taken two ways: The friendly interpretation is that someone
is wishing me luck. The hateful interpretation is that I am being condemned to judgment by a monstrous
"Eternity is a long time to be wrong!" All freethinkers have heard this retort, which is a more refined
version of "You're going to hell!" This comment is psychotic, in that these blind believers believe
there is a "loving" and "forgiving" god person who will hideously punish anyone who dares to question
"his" existence. Obviously, we reject such an ugly concept, so this threat doesn't scare us. Also, what
if YOU'RE wrong? You have condemned millions of people to hell in your thoughts and words, not to
mention that, if you're a Christian, you believe the Jews are guilty of killing God! These are pretty
heinous accusations, so you had better be sure that you're not wrong. Blind belief is
not a win-win situation. Indeed, it is intellectually dishonest and harmful.
"When you die, you will meet your Maker and fall down on your knees before Jesus and ask His
forgiveness." Ditto with the above. Why would the "omnipotent" Jesus and "His Father" be so threatened
by our unbelief? Did "He/They" not provide us with intelligence? Yet, "He" wishes us to spit on "His"
gift and not use it? This asinine comment also means that the hundreds of millions of Buddhists and
others who don't believe in the Jewish godman are diabolical and will be severely punished. Those who
subscribe to such bigotry are already living in hell.
"Have you read the Bible cover to cover?" Actually, I have, and the hypocrite who asks such a question
obviously hasn't, because the Bible
is full of dreadful stories about genocide,
murder, adultery, incest, deceit, greed, arrogance, megalomania, sexual perversion, and all sorts of
despicable behavior. On second thought, perhaps the people who ask such a question HAVE read the Bible,
as we are sure it creates dementia.
"Who made you so angry?" This comment one is full of implications, and I could answer in a variety of
ways. One favorite response is "Who made you so dumb?" But I could focus on the "made" part and say,
"Well, God made me, so he must have made me angry." I could also point out that the question itself is
extremely angry, and that those who see anger everywhere are themselves seething with anger but are
repressing it and are thus not mentally balanced. Human beings SHOULD be angry, because their situation
is atrocious. If there were such a god person directing everything, they should be very angry at "him,"
because this world is a mess and every day abominable things are happening to millions of people. Of
course, the standard stupid response to this is that "God gave us free will." (See A Question of Free Will
"I'll pray for you!" This comment sounds like an alien language to freethinkers. It comes out something
like this: "BZZZPPFFFFTTT." When interpreted, it becomes clear that the person who is making such a
comment feels quite smug and superior in that he/she has chosen the RIGHT god, compared to whatever it
is you do with your consciousness, such that he/she now has a direct pipeline, whereas you do not, and
he/she will put in a good word for you, you lowlife scum. Since the concept of "God" is completely
arbitrary, we could respond that we will pray to the Cosmic Mickey Mouse that our well-wishers become
intelligent. Naturally, we are not talking about loved ones who make this heartfelt prayer
comment in times of true trauma. We are addressing the condescending offer
presented by missionaries and proselytizing fanatics who have never even met us but who feel they know
we are sinners who need prayer to their "Father in heaven." Theirs is a rather unctuous and smarmy
Now, just in case you think I'm being a bit harsh in pronouncing these statements and sentiments
psychotic, I offer up the following email--you decide. Do you truly want to live in a world dominated by this kind
"Alas, your vile vulgarness comes out. It's obvious you and your mind belong to Satan. The
message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing. You are a very sad excuse of a human being. You
babble about things you know nothing about. The Jews aren't Christkillers. Whoever told you that. Jesus died
for all of us, so we all are Christkillers.... Whether or not you like it, or admit it, you were created by
God, you will be judged by God, and you will be punished by God. You can play all the games you want to until
that day of judgement, but it's coming."
To these loving, advanced concepts, I respond, "You and your mind obviously belong to Ahriman
the Devil! Ahura-Mazda the Almighty will judge and punish you! My Persian boogeyman is bigger than your
Judeo-Christian one! You barbarian with a bone in your nose! Ooga-booga!" Then I follow this with much
saber-rattling, teeth-baring and chest-beating.
All of these comments reflect that the believer is angry, volatile, primitive, arrogant,
mentally unbalanced and does not display critical thinking. Let us now spell it out:
- If you believe there is an invisible giant man of a particular ethnicity in the sky who is
directing everything and who is so hateful he will viciously punish us for challenging his existence--
- If you believe that this invisible giant man got a 13-year-old virgin girl pregnant, who
then gave birth to him as his own son--
- If you believe that this god person wrote a book--and one book only--
- If you believe that "confessing the Lord" will instantly remove your sins, thus allowing
you to commit more--
- If you believe that a stone will remove your sins, thus allowing you to commit more--
- If you believe in vicarious blood-atonement, i.e., that "the Lord died for your sins" and
thus you can commit as many as you wish--
- If you believe that merely believing in such a god person makes you righteous, no matter
what atrocities you commit and what hatred and intolerance you carry and spread--
- If you believe that some "good" god person is going to reward you for killing living,
breathing human beings "in his name"--
- If you believe that going to church, temple, synagogue or mosque, making pilgrimages, or
wearing particular clothes or headdresses, makes you a righteous person, even though you don't behave like
- If you believe that you are special and chosen because of what you believe--
- If you believe that it is good to mindlessly go along with whatever anyone tells you about
the nature of God and religion--
- If you believe that believing in one God makes you better than and superior to those who
You are not displaying critical thinking, not using your mind. You are also uneducated as
to the world's cultures and history. It is not a sign of great intelligence to blindly
believe what someone else has told you is true, especially when such beliefs basically condemn hundreds of
millions of other people. Many of these blind believers are simply not very bright, yet they assume that their
belief equalizes them with those who are smarter. "Jesus loves you just the way you are!" is the hypocritical hue
and cry of those who feel inferior but who will not recognize it and admit it. Yet, according to these same
cheerleaders, Jesus DOESN'T love you just the way you are--you must thoroughly change, surrendering your mind and
soul to him. A bit of a psychotic extortion racket.
The bottom line is that those who dare to question and challenge cherished beliefs which are not
rational and reasonable, and who live relatively righteous lives without such irrational and intolerant beliefs,
should be recognized as being the epitome of what any god person would wish in "his children." They are utilizing
all of the gifts that such a god person would provide, were "he" real. And if they have utilized these "God-given"
gifts, they know that the interpretation of "God" is a cultural artifact, not an absolute
truth that must be defended and beaten into other people. In using these gifts, they will discover that over the
millennia, hundreds of millions of people have held differing opinions as to the Infinite, which is only common
sense, since it is, after all, Infinite.
Humans need to lighten up! Their gods and religions are dreary, humorless, wrathful, intolerant,
oppressive and generally unpleasant. There is no love, no joy, no fun! Humans are under the dominion of ideologies
that are slowly but surely killing them. They need to release them and be free! No one is going to punish them for
enjoying life, and there is no point to living if they can't enjoy it. No good god person wants to see people
stumbling around in dread seriousness, doing cockamamie rituals and constantly beating up themselves and others.
Life is a joke. There is no purpose, so everyone is free to create his or her own, making it as amusing, joyous and
scrupulous as possible.
