Karfreitag. April 14, 2006

Today is Good Friday. (OMG the toolbar is back HAHAHAHAHAHA) Today is the day when Jesus was cruxified, when he later died 'for our sins', or so it goes. It makes you think, doesn't it?

Personally, i believe that religion, if you believe it, is just a self-defence mechanism of sorts – something to make you feel that in spite of all the blasphemous things you've done, all you have to do is repent, say you're sorry, confess and you'll to go a nicer place when you pass on. Something to quell the fear of the unknown. Still, this doesn't mean that i'm not a believer of a God/Buddha/Allah/whatever you may call him, but i don't think he's going to forgive us just by professing our absolute faith in him every time we commit a sin.

Yes, i am a pantheist. So many gods for so many people, but i believe there is only One. I don't think you can attribute much to evolution and empirical theory, can you? The ability to reason has to come from somewhere. Und das vermag ich nicht zu ergründen. This creation has to stem from somewhere, but i don't believe in any faith. Faith is personal. It's not yours, or God's. You can be like kelvin who is perhaps the one and only Zentenist, but there are millions out there who worship the ego.

Just as i believe that whatever goes around comes around. Absolution isn't in the form of saying your Hail Mary's or dedicating yourself to the study of religious textes in the search for enlightenment. What's done is done, and you have to live your life the way you wish it. If you find sanctuary in the House of God, that's all fine and well, but know that actions speak louder than words. That's why i don't say anything about reuben wanting to go on mission trips to educate the poor and needy. I'll have something to say, however, about those which were dedicated to spreading the faith.

Sadly, even if the ministers/missionaries had good intentions, but i am of the opinion that they were part of a political game of the European powers to subvert the local population. It's the same with the Terrorangriffe these days. I'll bet that Allah is not at the core of all this. At the core of all this is a insane megalomaniac with dreams of world domination. Don't you see how easily religion is used as a banner for the people to unite under?

Don't say that our retribution will come in the form of Judgement Day, followed by Armageddon. For one, although it's an interesting way to see things, we are not in a test-tube in God's laborotary. For one, you don't smash your test-tubes in a fit of anger when your experiment fails, do you? Personal retribution may not be in the form of an appointment with Lucifer. Imagine if you had to carry all the regret about all you did with your short time on Earth into the ether, for all eternity. That is punishment enough.

Anyway, it IS Karfreitag. Noch ein paar Tage und Er ist wiederauferstanden…so, abwarten?

Don't forget to say your Vater Unser
