God- What is the hype all about?

Another not-so-easy topic. This time it is God himself/herself.

I am left to wonder whether we really have a superior power called God in the first place. Well no, I personally believe, God and religion are a bunch of time-wasters and ways to make money and curb human thinking, thus making them follow the rules set by the religious houses.

When I was very young, I would dutifully go to temple every morning b4 going to school. well I used to believe it in school when the nuns used to tell us “dun copy children, God is watching u” little did we realise that if at all God were to watch us he/she cant possibly watch us all at once, as he/she has only 2 eyes and we were a few hundred. But the confusing part was who he/she was watching at what instant of time.

Well this apart, I remember facing this scene a few times just after exam results

Mom n Dad (MD) :- you got less marks again. Why?
Raam® :- I suppose I din study properly.
MD: – if u dun study properly how do you expect to get good marks
R :- I don’t know, I do go to temple everyday, I suppose its high time this God did something about my marks.
MD: – but if u dun study well how do you expect God to help u? Now listen. You will study harder now onwards.

Well now I, being the questioning sceptical one that I have always been, ask myself “if I study really well, why do I need God to help me? Also God is supposed to help helpless people, I study hard but still dun score, hence I am as good as helpless, so why din God help me?”

Armed with such questions, I move on in life, get into engineering, well same story again….such is life… the saga continues. Now after analysing my successes and failures, I confidently arrive at this decision and decide to life my life based on this inference. It works, trust me… It really does!

1. God is an excuse to put the blame on or to give credit to.
2. I and only I deserve full credit to my success.
3. I and only I deserve to be blamed for my failure.

Makes life easier to live.
