Sam Harris talks about the nature of religion:
You’re all aware of course that the Koran exists and claims to be the perfect word of the creator of the universe. You are aware that once having heard this possibility and rejecting it, you are all going to hell for eternity.
He then goes on to ask, what if the Koran is right? It is identical to the Christian claim that if you don’t believe in Jesus that you are going to Hell. These claims cannot both be right.
Either way, billions of people are going to Hell if there really is a “god” and the Bible or Koran are correct.
A more important question: Why is the “god” portrayed in these books as such an obnoxious, demonic troll? Why would a supposedly “all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving” being want to brutally torture anyone for eternity? Why would such a being, if he were to exist, allow there to be multiple religions, guaranteeing the torture of billions?
Simple questions like these lead any intelligent person to understand that God and Allah are both imaginary. It’s obviously nonsense on so many different levels.
Why would anyone choose to believe in such nonsense? Why would anyone spend their time worshiping a being who is so obviously an obnoxious, demonic troll?
