Bringing together non-believers …
Today, i took some time to open the bible and read it. Has it ever occurred to you that the Bible is the most important book for any Atheist? Because the more you read it, the more convinced you are that God, any God cannot possibly exist. Especially the Abrahamic God. The guy is a goddamn saddist.
Now, how many of you have ever read the book of Revelations? I started reading it this morning, and i could not make head or tail of what its all about. It seemed to give me a glimpse of the shenanigans that shall be taking place in heaven, once Jesus comes back. Too much worshiping, too many monsters all over the place, too much noise, trumpets, dead lambs, humans with wings, ogres with eyes on the front and back. Goodness! What is that book all about?
Picture this folks: Rev: 5 6Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
If you thought you had seen the worst of lambs while on earth, then one with seven horns and seven eyes would be a spectacle indeed. A real hair raiser. Heaven sure has some goddamn beasts.
Picture this: Rev: 9 7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8 Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months.
I have been with locusts, i play with those harmless insects. But ones looking like horses prepared for battle, ah ah. With faces resembling humans, no way! Locusts with hair like women’s hair, and teeth like lions teeth, damn! Is that part of what has been prepared for the believers in heaven? I know the religious apologists will try to give this story a good human face, but the reality is that the Biblical heaven is a place of sheer terror, and too much drama.
I will leave you with this beast from the book of Revelations, and let me know if you want to be associated with such mystery: Rev: 13 11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people.
