A History of God, Installment 2, Atheists
Belief in God, believe it or not, started around fourteen thousand years ago. I know myself, I was always led to believe, and inclined to think that belief in God was started by the Jews.
I was led to believe that they had a patent on God and everyone else was wasting their time, wrong. Years ago people believed spirits resided, as many of us still do, in places and things such as rocks, mountains, plants, and other beautiful objects of nature.
The Arabs called this Jinn, various tribes around the world knew this as Manna, and Latin’s, as Numina. All religions revered nature as being close to God.
Atheists, which are looked down upon by the three great religions, also believe in this and revere nature. So you see, you are all right, and just differ in the respect that atheists do not feel the need to carry knowledge any further as some of us do.
It all depends on how much of an explanation one needs to understand his or her role on the planet and in life.
Depending on a persons needs they will go to, and find what they need in many of various religions. Atheists believe that life on this planet is a very rare but natural occurrence, as naturalist, evolutionist, and many of us others do.
Some people only have a need to carry the process further and assign these creations to the doings of a God, and further, to a vision by an identified prophet.
* At one point in time every religious faith including, Jews, Muslims, and especially Christians, were thought of as atheists. This was because their beliefs did not agree with existing beliefs in practice at the time.
Nonbelievers, (atheists), until very recently, were very rare. During Abraham’s, time, virtually everyone believed.
With the advent of ever improving fields of science being able to explain many of the great mysteries of the world many people all over the world have of late, been moving away from their belief in the one God.
What most people fail to realize, is that another perfectly natural and cyclical occurrence, is unfolding right now. It is one, of many that is happening all at the same time.
One is feeding the other and God willing, everything will work out favorably.
Once again, Christians and Jews, due to the increasing unease about their surroundings are beginning to look to God for answers.
All the bombings, killings, terrorism, and many, many, problems in our Governments have become too much for most to bear alone. This is especially true in the U.S. with a multitude of systematic moral inequities right here at home.
This is due in large part to our moral degradation and our perceived inability to do the right thing. People are more and more turning back to the one true God in ever increasing numbers.
Shortly, further on in this discussion I am going to blow your collective minds away. We will be pointing out something that has happened to both the Jews, and the Christians, and is now happening to the Muslims.
