God fear and Theism : Threats to the nation


Religion is something through which people are segregated among their brothers. It is the religion through which the people perceive their identity. This identity is kept as high that the value of nation for a citizen diminishes. Indians follow a ‘federal’ structure of worship or in other words the fear of God ranges at different levels. Let us see how-
  The centre belongs to the established religions and Gods. There are six major religions in India. The lower tiers are generally the claimed reincarnation of Gods but there are still independent candidates sorry Gods.
  Then comes the second tier – The miraculous self proclaimed godmans. These are of two types – the first category includes the urban ones. They are often telecasted on news channels, advertisements, may have official websites and definitely have bank accounts through which they earn millions through donations. These have overseas connections too. The second category is of the rural people. These are of maniac kinds and publicity seekers. These are always found doing silly acts or claim to do such as walking on coals, producing sacred ash from thin air, exploding stones with "mental power," levitating, or turning water into blood, psychic surgery, inexhaustible oil lamps, materialization of holy ash, and pyrokinesis, reading the serial numbers from currency in sealed envelopes, materializing objects, predicting future events, converting liquids from one kind to another, and walking on water, Convert wine into blood. Move or bend a solid object using psychokinetic power, Disappear from the negative when photographed etc. the lists keep on growing up. These self proclaim Gods claim that they have miraculous powers and it is due to which they are able to carry out those acts. They also claim to heal people. They have a less turnover as compared to the urban people. Although they are cheaters but one thing is for sure that they are good entertainers. Their acts are fascinating. But I have pity over these people. They are just like the majority of the India’s upcoming generation – don’t know how to build up their career. They could have tried and get a job in a circus. These people are generally confined to a village but may expand their business to other villages too. These are innovative Gods; every now and then they keep on increasing their miracles for their publicity stunts.
  But there is still one more category of God fear and finance I still left. In India how can we miss out statues that drink milk or something like that? Devotees’ turnout in huge numbers and the opportunists keep on extracting funds on behalf of the statues. Sometimes the opportunities show the God fear by conducting acts which the devotees believe to be inauspicious and then they extract money to get a solution of it. There is a provision in The Indian Penal Code in section 508 for acts related to Divine Displeasure but it gets nullified in front of the hampering religious feelings according to IPC 295A. Whether anybody dies or gets severely injured but the religious feelings must not get affected. There is also a duty mentioned in the Constitution of India in article 51A (h) to develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform. But this duty also fades in front of the rights. It is the tendency of the majority of Indians to prefer the rights in front of duties.
  Let us know how the God fear converts into money. Staring off with the rural people – They are helpless people living a miserable life struggling for almost everything. They believe that faith in religion and God could someday change their lives. So they get easily fooled by them who promise them for their betterment. They start considering him to be a Messiah – The God. But every time they get cheated.                          
    In the urban areas, people are too much busy in their work and want to get rid of their troubles instantly. In this case come one miraculous is in high demand who promises them for providing their relief and give a break from all the tensions of life. They have different techniques to attract people.                        
   In case of the statue, there is a different reason. The theists themselves become skeptic when they get tired searching for evidences, so anything that comes in front of them, they start believing it to be as a sign for the existence of God and honesty of their scriptures. 
     And of course at last, the first class Gods. These are just puppets which are controlled by their followers only. They are just meant for hiding their failures in the name of inferiority. These type of Gods are non existing in real lives but are the richest in terms of capital.
  The problem increases when the religions step into the politics and give rise to communalism. When communalism is encouraged, it results into the bloods of thousands of innocent, hardworking people. Majority of the theists don’t know about their religions. But they use their religion to suppress and dominate others. They try to influence their own ideologies on others by force and there comes terrorism. The ones which have a deep relation to political parties don’t get affected by Prevention of Terrorism Act. In India, four out of the six major religions are militant and communal and always possess a threat to society. These four religions and their subgroups are responsible for all the communal riots in India. The other two are ‘waste’ religions. Their books and the God were the masters of explain the topic that How to waste life doing nothing in order to liberate your soul. These ideas are not respected by their followers also and they keep on living their lives happily but do follow the rituals because it is their identity.
  Our politics, votes, ideas, hobbies, interests, views and everything is categorized according to the religious views. What religions have given to India – shame, guilt, terrorism, communalism, riots, disunity, and hatred among the brothers but still the people say that it is ‘good’ to be religious. If this is good then we are happy to remain the worst people. They say that if you would become an Atheist then you would go to a wrong path and get burnt in the hell. We Atheists say that it is far better than to do hell with your life. Who fears your God and his hell! For us only the conscience matters.

The Indian God Factory


Gods and religion play the most superior role in the lives of the majority of the people of India. It is not important that the God have to be historical or have to be mentioned in the scriptures of an ‘established’ religion. A god could be anyone, could be created at any time, any place without reason but there would be no discount in the amount of dedication and worship. Therefore it was never clear especially in India what is/are God and religions means actually. Let me clear it for you
       Religion(s)is/ are the set of ideologies used by the group of people to promote their irrelevant laws, culture, prejudices, self benefits, aims etc. or it is an inappropriate reason used by inferiors, fragile-minded, foolish, weak people to escape from truth and by the needy as a hope. God is a mascot for religions to increase the popularity of religions.
      When people follow God, the so-called superior, they do not worship actually. They use it as a means of hiding their cowardice. In other words, the people who don’t dare to face the realities of world and escape from it are religious and God fearing.
But from where and how these religions and Gods are generated? Let us understand the evolution of religions. It was the tendency of humans that when they didn’t knew what to do and they didn’t found out anyone or anything which could satisfy their questions and curiosity, they started believing that there is/are superior & everything happens according to him/her. But those idiots never realized the true potential of the human beings and started co-relating failures to many irrelevant principles and stories to hide their foolishness. All these ended and gave rise to religion(s) and God their mascot. The second possible case- Like Chanakya mentioned in his Arthashastra i.e. to portray someone miraculous so that the enemy’s soldiers resist to participate in the war due to fear. Many of the Gods could have been created by this method. The third case – Earlier societies were autocratic, it means that there was no right to speech, expression etc. It means that the kings could have forced the writers of that time to write extraordinary for them which after many generations portray them as God.
 This God factory runs on the tendency, unnecessary need and idiotic selfish supports of those whom I call as kafirs, the ‘non- believers’ of the truth. Those who are/were intelligent rejected God, religion and the ideologies and focused on what is right – right according to the conscience. This factory can only be stopped by these people. The responsibility lies with them. The future of India lies with them!
