The last several chapters in Psalms have been quite short and that trend continues today with chapter 115. Granted, this chapter has a few more verses than the previous few chapters, but the content is much the same.
“Why do the nations say, ‘Where is their God’” – Psalm 115:2
Easy. There’s no evidence.
“Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.” – Psalm 115:3
Agreed. God does do whatever he pleases. He murders, rapes, and enslaves whenever it pleases him.
“You who fear him, trust in the Lord—he is their help and shield.” – Psalm 115:11
A god who loves is not a god who demands fear. A god who demands fear is not a god who loves.
There are a few other verses after this but all are about praising God because he is great. No thanks. I’ve seen the evidence in the Bible pointing out the harmful things this god does. No thanks. Even if a god existed, the god of the Bible is not one who I’ll ever worship. A god who demands your fear is no god to bow down to.

“Eternal suffering awaits anyone who questions God’s infinite love.” – Bill Hicks
Think carefully about this. God loves us supposedly. God has infinite love. But that infinite love stops if you question God. Hmmm. Infinite love ends?
It’s Psalms, so you know the drill. God is good. God is great. Just don’t read the rest of the Bible and you’ll see no contradictions in Psalms. LOL!
“When Israel came out of Egypt…” – Psalm 114:1
Because God hardened the hearts of the Egyptians.
“Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water.” – Psalm 114:7-8
I’m sorry? Earthquakes are Earth trembling to God? Give me a fucking break. It’s a release of energy due to rock shifting underground, caused by plate tectonic movement along fault lines. For fuck’s sake.

The book of Psalms, now with Solomon in charge, continues for us today. Today’s chapter is Psalm 113 so let’s jump right in and see what it has to say.
“From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.” – Psalm 113:3
And the Dark Lord Satan reigns from sun set to sun rise. Let his glorious power rule the land! Muahahahaha! LOL!
“Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?” – Psalm 113:5-6
No one is like the Lord our God. Why? Because no one is as immoral as this god. No one murders as much as this god. No one demands rape and slavery as much as this god. No one allows kids to be murdered and raped like this god. Everyone is better and more moral than this god.
“He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children.” – Psalm 113:9
What if the woman didn’t want children? What if the woman was forced into marriage as a child slave? Maybe the childless woman was already happy with her life?
As always this chapter in Psalms is another example in which the Bible itself contradicts most of the ‘glorious’ talk described to this awful god.

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse comes from the book of Revelation.
“Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” – Revelation 22:15
The book of Revelation describes the end of times and lays out what is needed to get to heaven. In this verse, those who practice magic, do the sex in the wrong way, and do other bad things, won’t make it to heaven. In addition, anyone who practices falsehood, or in other words lies, doesn’t make it to heaven. Um…everyone lies. Some lies are small, some are big. Some are even unintentional. Kids lie all the time. It’s part of growing up. So if no one who lies can make it to heaven, who actually goes to heaven? No one! Hell, even Jesus lied! He said he would return in the lifetime of those alive at the time and he didn’t! Jesus is a liar. Not even Jesus makes it to heaven according to this verse. That leaves two options. Either heaven doesn’t exist or it’s an empty place inhabited by no one. Hmmm.
Today we continue in the book of Psalms.
“Blessed are those who fear the Lord, who find great delight in his commands.” – Psalm 112:1
No, those who fear the Lord are not blessed. They are victims of child abuse.
“Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever.” – Psalm 112:3
If you’re poor, it’s your own fault. You weren’t righteous enough or maybe you didn’t pray harder enough. Either way, it’s all your fault according to the Bible.
“Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.” – Psalm 112:8
This is a big contradiction and a major blunder by the authors of the Bible. This verse says the righteous will have no fear, but we see time and time again, including in this very chapter, that fearing God is a requirement to being righteous. More evidence the Bible is a book of make believe characters that was only written as an attempt to control the masses.
Yes, yes, yes. Fear God and you are good. Don’t fear God and you are bad. We get it. Unless of course you focus on that contradiction which says that the righteous have both fear and no fear. ROFL. What a waste of a book.

Today’s Atheism quote comes from Dan Barker, the current co-president of the Freedom for Religion Foundation.
“Without ‘The Law of Moses’ would we all be wandering around like little gods, stealing, raping, and spilling blood whenever our vanity was offended?” – Dan Barker
The answer is, of course, no. Nearly all of us know better. We know we don’t need a book to tell us that stealing, raping, and killing is wrong. Therefore, nearly all of us are more moral than the god of the Bible. The person who says the only thing stopping them from stealing, raping, and murdering is the Bible, is a person you should run far away from.
