is there a god?

J Krishnamuti says

In the case of the tree the object is before our eyes, and the word refers to the tree by universal agreement. Now with the word god there is nothing to which it refers, so each man can create his own image of that for which there is no reference.

The bible & family life

The authors of the Uncensored Bible write and I quote

Many people try to follow the Bible’s teachings so they can have a happy home. But the truth is, there aren’t many happy homes depicted in the bible. The real inheritors of the bible example are families who have experienced divorce, deception, adultery, and incest or have a murderer or rapist in the family. The good book is simply loaded with bad kin. And it’s a virtual handbook for how not to raise children.

It must have been Bertrand Russell who said a god who drowned his children cannot tell him how to raise his. I think he was right.
