If You Come Upon the Buddha in the Roadway...

A standard avenue of attack on an atheist is the "What are you going to do when you die and find yourself face to face with god". It's a nonsensical question which holds no sway and causes no consternation in the atheist's mind.

But, as a gamer and avid thinker I have an active and fertile mind, as a result of evolution and my own cultivation. So here's a response (adapted from The Shawshank Redemption).
A door of perception opens and I find myself face to face, as it were, with the Holy Trinity.

Grunge it says here you have served a 109 years of a life sentence are you ready to face judgement and God?

God? Well, now let me see. You know, I have no idea what that word means.

Well it means Me. The Creator of Heaven and Earth. The Alpha and Omega...

I know what you think it means sonny. God is just a made up word. A politicians word. So little weak men can wear funny costumes and have a job stealing from and controlling people. What you really want to know is if I'm sorry I didn't believe in you while I was alive.

Well are you?

There's not a day goes by that I did not try and use my reason. And I'm not sorry the use of my mind and the evidence of the world led me to know you don't exist.

God? God is just a bullshit word. So go ahead and stamp your form and quit wasting my fucking time. Cause I don't give a damn.

I've said, when the spirit moves me, that god knows the reasons I have for why he does not exist.

This life is the real life this world is the only world and it is one's paramount duty to live life to the fullest, to cherish one's friends and loves, to soak in the glories of the world and in other words; To Be.

Suddenly, a bright light shines from above; with my eyes heavy and mouth dry I manage a sandpaper like croak, What is happening?

It's okay Mr. Grunge. The effects will wear off shortly. Your stem cell regeneration procedure was a complete success.

I'm hazy. I'm not sure I understand.

Of course allow me to explain. Since the mid 21st century due to medical and scientific advances mankind is capable of regenerating all the cells and organs of your physical self while the true self your mind remains and advances throughout the ages. Thus providing all of humanity a real Immortality instead of the fable once bandied about by insane brain washing fanatics and psychotic witch-doctors.

I had this dream I was brought before the holy trinity.

That's a common enough occurrence. While resting the mind moves throughout the REM cycle and further and vivid dreams and hallucinations are known to occur. People often dream about meeting imaginary beings.

Thus when the fog lifted I recalled what I knew. All the gods are imaginary. They are stuff of delusions, dreams and hallucinations.



Is it blasphemous of me as a Christian to enjoy your site Disaffected Dude?

No. All are welcome. To take from your Requiem post of May 15I blog because they enjoy blogging and sharing ideas with others that enjoy blogging. We're not going to make a difference. We're probably not going to change anyone's mind.I'm sure my personal reflections, stories and essays have little chance of changing anyone's opinion.

Thank you for stopping by...

Good article.

If I ever met God face to face, I'd say.

"God, you created me, so you knew exactly how much evidence I would need to believe in you, how come you didn't give it to me?"
