Questions On My Mind

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

If God made Earth for Man, made Adam and Eve, then what’s the purpose of mass extinctions,
Be it 65 million years ago or 200 million years ago, I can’t understand, these facts from fictions,

Questions, questions on my mind,

If God sent Messengers and Prophets for every nation, every tribe, every race, all of humanity,
Then how come there are still Aboriginal tribes, living in jungles, away from world and it’s insanity,

Questions, questions on my mind,

If there is a direct lineage, from Adam to Noah to Abraham to Moses to Jesus to Muhammad, and it’s 6000 years,
Then howcome there are structures built by Man, from 30 thousand years ago, hunters and their bows and spears,

Questions, questions on my mind,

The origins of life in question, non living matter became a living being, what is a soul?
What is the meaning of life, and consciousness? What is Our purpose, what is Our goal?

Questions, questions on my mind,

If good and evil exists equally, amongst the religious ones and the ones without it,
Then is the fault in the individual? Not the race, creed, color, religion, but why do we still doubt it?

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

What is good? What is evil? What is it, absent the consequences or context or punishment? What if we don’t get caught?
What is humanity? What is compassion? What is empathy? What if reward is all you sought?

Questions, questions on my mind,
Unable to answer, unable to find,

If fear of punishment, for breaking the law, makes one wear a seat belt, or wear a helmet, can you tell?
Then why do we make fun of, look down upon, mock the ones who proclaim their fear of hell,

Questions, questions on my mind,

My Mind Singing, a reflection of thoughts on religion and athiesm

Picking and choosing. Often frowned upon. I mean follow any discussion involving athiests and religious folk. For anything a religious person might object to, be unsure about, have an opinion about, disagree with, they’re often given examples from their religious texts about other things and called hypocrites. But I want to ask the question, why? Does any athiest just blindly follow any scientific hypothesis? Does multiverse exist? What is consciousness? Are there 4 dimensions or 5 or 11 or 13? Is big bang the only explanation for start of universe? What about simulation theory? Is everyone who believes in that a fool or a hypocrite? No. Picking and choosing. How is that any different? Why can’t relgious folk pick and choose? Surely I am not defending here the right to inflict pain on others. Surely I know that people used Bible to justify slavery and crusades and Iraq war and what not. But that’s just being human. Ghengis Khan killed million and millions of people and I don’t think he was inspired by any religious text. So why this frowning upon picking and choosing? Anytime a religious person is against gay marriage or gay relationships, they bring out “oh then you shouldn’t easy fish or pork or that according to Bible Earth was created before the sun”. So in return religious people should just bring out “was it big bang? Or was it simulation theory? Or was it multiverse?”. Picking and choosing should not be frowned upon. It should be encouraged. You have full right to pick and choose how to live your life and what to believe in and what makes you feel happy. But and yes there is a big but, you should do that if and only if it doesn’t cause others pain. Often times people who are marching against gay marriages are same ones who’d be marching against immigrants. Sure I might be generalizing in my article as well. And it is wrong. I have met kind religious people and I have met arrogant rude non religious people. Your religion and lack there of dies not necessarily make you a morale authority or a good person. Your actions are what makes you a person. It’s not about your religion, not about your race, not about your beliefs,not about your creed, not about your social stature, it is only about the type of person you are on the inside. I have seen relgious people start holy wars and I have seen secular people start wars for materialistic gains. We’re all the same, regardless of color, creed, belief and race. Picking and choosing is essential to individual freedom and happiness. No, not all Christians have to follow every single in Bible and not every Muslim has to follow every single thing in Quran and not every athiest has to follow every single scientific theory or hypothesis! Humans are complicated and just forcing them all to be part of one or another is not the way! Forcing anyone is not the way! Our world is complicated, we still don’t know how life got created in the first place out of non living matter. In the same way humans are complicated, our minds are complicated, our life stories are individual and complicated, our pursuit of happiness is complicated. So what is the solution? Well I am but just a mortal man and I don’t know. I don’t know how to solve all crisis on Earth, I don’t know how to solve all our problems, I don’t know anything. But what I do know is that everyone should be free to pick and choose from their religious texts and their scientific hypothesis what makes then happy and what makes others around them happier and makes world a better place! Because I believe that in the end, it’s all about happiness and making people around you happy and make world a better place, full of love and harmony and peace.
