If there was a non-religious God then I guess this would be the closest I would be pushed towards any kind of rational thought towards any deity. If I were to believe anything it would be that he is scowling and wondering when it will go right.
Why am I now discussing this well two things, firstly two Jehovah Witness’s came to the door the other day. Very pleasant people but I just won’t believe as they do neither will I convert to their thinking. Secondly such an event always gets me thinking especially when they make statements like
“Do you know what your purpose in life is?” This is a statement that they will probably not entirely know themselves, so what is the point in asking?
What is my purpose in life – well mostly I think it is to pass my DNA on and preserve the species as is the way of life on this planet for all species, Why should I believe my life to be any more important than a hive of bee’s or a set of badgers. The biggest difference is my ability to think freely. Something we would say is a basic human right and privilege.
I do however believe in Jesus but let me explain I believe him to be an historic figure A MAN who was preoccupied with one thing, that was the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven to this world. Clearly an event that never happened . It was meant to happen in his life time and must have been a bitter shock to discover that it would not. But some will say but there will be a second coming but again I do not think so, the church of the coming of heaven as it were, was given over to what is claimed to be Jesus brother James.
Needless to say I try not to get into any arguments with Jehovah Witness’s I have a respect that they as well as any have a strong faith that I just do not recognise in myself. But if one tries to convert me it is often then I will get quite vocal with my own personal views, one that believe is that solutions are being wrapped around problems in the hope that they will fit. In this way I am closer to Freemasonry than any religious group, but I think Freemasons try to keep personal religious views to themselves and promote a more spiritual Grand Architect.
I will undoubtedly have more to say on this as I do a little research for my story of John Rutter who walks in to a world where it all changed on October 13th 1307, an event where the French royal family was rounded up instead, in a parallel paradoxical history of an this alternative world.
