Prayers are based on emotions, not on stupidity
or on intelligence, because they are formulated by virtue of learning that is
practically started by baptism and that paralyses any critical components of
even the most intelligent brain and this is why, more or less randomly, only a
few people escape from the illusions of prayers.
Imagine an indoctrinated “God”, “Jahwe”, “Allah”
etc. whose “ears” permanently receive billions(!) of prayers: Israelites beg
for the good of their country, the Palestinians as well, the fan of Celtic
Glasgow pleads for the victory like simultaneously the friend of Glasgow
Rangers, German Christians in majority prayed for Hitler, the people of other
nations each for their government and soldiers. They all went into the heaviest
human inferno, blessed by God. And the march is going on.
This would be the
“Lord”, if he was there!
The imaginary unshaped character, being
omniscient, would have planned the world down to the last detail and would have
created it, thus would be responsible for Good and Evil to the human whom he is
torturing until death, believers think, even longer perhaps as reward also. If
a person dies from a consequently ongoing suffering of cancer accordingly to
the universal plan, God’s children indeed will imagine that the higher “ruler
of the world” may have just made a mistake and, by stammering prayers, would
correct his decision for the benefit of the sick one. God, in doing so, should
have “known” anyway before the prayers for the dying person.
Even a senile pope in his last hours is
accompanied by millions of prayers. What for? Should he never end, stay on
earth eternally? Or is he suspected to be such a sinner that orgies of prayers
should prevent him from hell which God, if need be, will have ignited for him
as well, though the “Vicar of Christ” even practiced the ritual of exorcism in
his life time. (Earlier “Holy Fathers” performed entirely different orgies.)
The procedure of the whole Catholic worship is
reminding intensively on scenes of sports events when, before starting the
game, the teams are gathering for cheering up themselves. Nothing other are the
often repeated prayers and references to God during the Holy Mass. Is the
“creator” deaf or forgettable that you have to praise him again and again, that
you have to confess your faith and to replicate the same beggings ad nauseam,
that you even have to thank for being allowed to belief in “Him”, that you are
The operation is clear, the fellow Christians
are to be tied up with religion by the repetitions like a prayer wheel because,
if the inevitable death happens, no God will help. The died person is dead and
the believers are so shocked, in the situation of abandonment they actually
should be pleased with the luckiness of the deceased. But despite of all the
litanies the faith isn’t going that far. Nature itself obviously is preserving
a rest of scepticism for the deceived brain, a scepticism that is boiling up in
the focus of human finitude of life and is having an effect the more
dramatically the less the mind has been used to take part before in enlightened
Suffering legitimates every search for relief.
However, prayers are reinforcing the sufferings
by distance from reality and the regularly following disappointments which, in
turn, should be coped by prayers.
Concerning the limited effect of placebos in the
individual case the prayer is just witnessing the spiritual childishness of man
because the growing-up is prevented by illogicality which is camouflaged as
“mystery of faith” and is instilled ideologically.
If enlightenment which, of course, is in
existence will not awake finally, there might germinate the last “Amen” as the
world population rises. The lunacy would just interrupt a path of evolution, by
the way, very typically.
Therefore optimism is advised to further
generations also because it is worthwhile to meet the religions on the level of
intellect, namely on all human spheres.
There is a saying, rather superficial but very
“No risk, no fun.”
Life offers plenty of beauty that should
encourage the naturalistic and religion-free thinker to take bravely his risk
which is, at nearer glance, no recklessness or even daredevilry because it
characterises nothing else but the ancient “Carpe diem!”
Twenty-four hours of brightness and night, just for understanding, for ethical appreciation and enjoying.
