If God were to speak, he would appreciate the atheist rather than his believers (theist). Atheists have a single point agenda i.e. to say that God does not exist. It is the theists who do maximum damage to the reputation of God.
I am a sworn atheist from the past 10 years. Now when I look back, I feel more than being a believer in God, I was looking upto him only for fulfillment of desires, which I was not confident of satisfying on my own merit. This is true of most theists across the world.
To pass your exams, you require God; to get a groom, you require God; to get a good job, you require God; to build a house, you require God. Hardly there would be anybody, who wakes up in the morning, thanks God for all his blessings and ends his prayer without mentioning a material desire.
Everybody who prays before God is doing some sort of negotiations for satisfaction of his/her desire. If you fulfill this desire of mine, I will do this for your temple; offer my dandruff hairs to you, etc. etc. Do these theists really believe in God or are they using him, as a service provider who on post-payment of a nominal fee can satisfy their desires?
God is supposedly almighty of the universe. If the theists truly believe in his omni-presence, why do they build exclusive places of worship? Fine, a simple place of worship is acceptable but grand new places of worship in the days of starvation deaths and farmers suicide? Is the visual delight of a grand looking place of worship more important than satisfied mouths? Would the Goddess have punished them, if they had used such a colossal amount of money for a poverty alleviation scheme?
I am yet to decipher the concept of VIP and paid darshan in places of worship. The theists themselves say everyone is equal before God and how can they create such discrimination? It is humiliating to note that even in this cyber age, some section of people cannot enter temples because they belong to a particular caste. Similar sort of discrimination exists across religions based on race and sex.
God is no longer the object of worship for the theists, it is encashing his aura which matters. Worship has become the prisoner of the diktats of the theists. The meeker ones just pray for satisfaction of their desires and make offerings. The powerful ones control the places of worship and satisfy their desires. God’s least harmful sons are the atheists because they don’t suffocate his legacy nor torture him with their wish list in the name of worship.
