Gun to the head is not a choice

Problem evaporates when you realise the gun and the guy are imaginary.

Same with all the others.


  1. Hi Scottie
    Recently found your blog and you have a frequent visitor. Yes, religion is a scam. The bible is a book, sometimes referred to as the “the greatest story ever told,” written by many people over many years as far as scholars can deduce. I am curious to learn how many people have actually read this book. I have not read it in its entirety so minus 1 from the tally. But some parts are quite, um, interesting. Why does the Christian God refuse to be seen? I understand that a human would burn/evaporate/cease to exist if he were to lay eyes on said God. Am I correct on this? If so, that doesn’t sound like a very nice God to me. And if this God created everything, and is perfect, how does he account for species going extinct (not just dinosaurs)? He decided they were no longer part of his “plan?” Which also leads me to a much wider question – Do Christians (or any other religion) realize that our solar system is just one of millions? Look up one night. Most of those things you see in the night sky are stars, much like our own sun. Yep, we are lucky at times to see nearby planets in our own solar system on a clear night (they don’t twinkle like stars). Many of those stars also have planets orbiting their gravitational pull. Are these side jobs of this great God? Just in case he didn’t get it “right?”

    Just asking. These thoughts cross my mind and you seem like a great person to bounce them off of. Not sure if you and your spouse have kids, but do know you have a cat so I wish you a Happy Father’s Day. Cat’s need a dad too. They count!

    • Hello Dragon. Welcome to my Toy Box. I am glad you enjoy it. As to your questions let’s see what I can think of.

      Was god visible. Yes actually in the old testament god was physical and even wrestled with people. So why the sudden disappearance? I figure it is like miracles, I noticed they stopped happening all the time about the time we could record and study them. So why is god not appearing? Maybe it is scared? Maybe it is shy? Maybe it doesn’t exist!

      The Christians feel that god gave them the rights to everything on the planet and can do what man likes with all life and resources regardless of what harm it causes. Rather selfish and egotistical.

      As for the universe I think that is one of the best points to make. This huge expanse with everything in it is still growing and god waits billions of years until very recently to create his chosen people? Why as you say with all the trillions of galaxies with trillions of suns with trillions planets and possible life all over everywhere, and a rough living mostly hairless primate with very limited understanding of reality is his “chosen people”? Makes no sense except ego. I also ask why their god seemed to not know anything they did not know then and why god’s morals matched their morals then but not our better standards of morals today?

      Thank you for the Fathers day wishes. I have a spouse. Ron and I have been together for 30 years now. We have always rescued animals and when I couldn’t take care of dogs anymore we switched to cats. There is truth in the idea dogs have pals, cats have servants. πŸ™€πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜»

      There is a great community of bloggers who I learned a lot from. I will link to Ark’s blog and you can back track the commenters to their blogs. Each has their own style and approach. Hugs

  2. Both of those messages couldn’t be more true. Believing in Jesus can’t be a choice if eternal threats are attached to it. It has worked well to grow the Christian religion though.
