Is There A God?

No. People create gods and goddesses. We switch from one god to another over time. At some point in time no matter how big a religion is and no matter how certain people are that their god is the only god that should be worshipped, some other religion and some other god eventually overthrows it.

One of the reasons we create gods and goddesses is to motivate us to be good. Without a god, we feel we have no reason to be good. Being good just for the sake of being good is not enough for us. We need to be motivated and so we create a god who punishes us for being bad and rewards us for being good. Without the fear of god’s wrath or the expectation of heaven motivating us to be good, deep down we don’t believe we would be good.

The other reason people create gods and goddesses is because we need to believe there is more to life than there is. No matter what god we choose to worship, they exist to remind us that this life is temporary and that we will continue to exist after death whether it is in a heaven or a hell, our life will go on.

Sommerians do not believe in any gods. We only believe in nature and following the laws of nature. The laws of nature are the same for everyone. Good or bad, if you plant a seed, water it and feed it nutrients, it will grow. The laws of nature never change. They stay the same forever. We can all learn the laws of nature. No one has to come around with a holy book for us to learn nature’s laws. It is available to anyone who wants to stop and observe the things and beings around them.

We don’t need gods to live. Gods keep people worshipping them using fear. The eleventh sin is to live in fear. No one is really living if they are living in fear. Nature is straight forward. Everyone is free to be who they are. Everyone is free to live the life they want to live. There is no fear of hell because nature never punishes anyone for misbehaving. There is no reward of heaven because nature never rewards anyone for being kind. Life is for living. Nature gives us the freedom to live.
