Open Your Eyes

For deeply religious Christians, especially Catholics, the Bible is infallible. Everything written in it is true, according to them, even though everyone knows that the Bible supports the geocentric theory which was already proved wrong 500 years ago. Even today, many Christians believe that the earth is 6000 years old! Many Christians do not believe in the literal truth of the Bible at the present time, but they are still Christian because of social influence. They can better be termed as “festive Christians”, who are Christian just to celebrate the festivals and so as not to be left out of society. But those who have blind faith still feel the Bible is entirely scientific and a source of spirituality. Again, for them, everything written in the Bible is true. Such believers claim that the Bible has healing powers and can motivate you greatly to lead a good life. If you but read the Bible and apply some logic, you can very easily see how real and true their beliefs actually are.

Let’s look a passage from the Bible, an English translation of Mark:

{2:1} Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and

all the host of them. {2:2} And on the seventh day God

ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the

seventh day from all his work which he had made. {2:3}

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because

that in it he had rested from all his work which God created

and made.

 

The logical question that came to mind is, why did God need rest? On the one hand, he can do anything and is governing the whole universe in perfect harmony over billions of years; on the other hand, he gets tired by creating it! Moreover, if he is all-powerful, why would he do anything which would make him tired? Why can’t he just relax and enjoy? Who forced him to work and get tired? Is it his hobby?

Look at the world and its beauty; feel it and live it. Do not submit all your faculties to blind faith, and do not live a lame life. The world will be a much better place without bigotry and superstitions. Learn, educate, and search for the evidence before believing anything.
