five ways the ‘best’ atheist praised god

  1. He asked for immortality

I don’t know about you, but everywhere I look, everyone is trying their best not to die, especially those who believe they are headed to heaven.

2. He had everyone living in fear of him

Our interlocutor writes

The atheist works towards this goal. There is no other reason for amassing tremendous wealth or extending the boundaries of a nation. The objective is to rule the entire world, or at least wield enough influence so that no one can tell you what to do. Hiranyakashipu had this.

Maybe things are different where in your hood, but, look at the likes of Creflo Dollar, the Catholic church, Joel Osteen, Kyunas and we must, if what our interlocutor says think them atheists.

3. He showed that devotion cannot be stopped

If you ask me, it is the Muslims killing people in Bangladesh for free-thought, the Buddhists killing Muslims in Burma for believing differently that shows that freedom of thought can be restricted but never stopped. No atheist is trying to kill believers for believing virgins give birth, Pegasus fly blah blah

4. He came up with the best argument for atheism

He asked for god to show up

5. He allowed god to exploit a 1% weakness

God showed up as a lion-man and killed him.

What an interesting story this is

The Bhagavad Gita

According to Gandhi

Fellow sufferers, for those of you in the know, the  Bhagavad- Gita is considered by eastern and western scholars alike to be among the greatest spiritual books the world has ever known. In a very clear and wonderful way the Supreme Lord Krishna describes the science of self-realization and the exact process by which a human being can establish their eternal relationship with God.

In Gandhi’s commentary he helps the reader understand, in the way he saw it, the discussion between Shri Krishna and Arjuna where he[Arjuna] asks Shri Krishna whether it is wrong to kill one’s kinsmen. In this war epic, Shri Krishna answers Arjun in more than 11 chapters of the Gita. The other 7 chapters talk about self actualization, ways of acting, ways of letting go.

Shri Krishna in the many avatars tells Arjuna the need to forget the I, mine in all he does. We are told we must act without minding the rewards, that sand and gold should mean nothing to us, they are all dust. It is a book full of so many wise sayings.

It’s a great book for everyone. It is no wonder, Gandhi found it useful as a source of inspiration for non violence/ noncooperation.
