Time and morality

ThoughtsPosted by pythonpsycho1337 Mon, January 19, 2015 22:47:24

We are put in place where time is something invented and the space we live in is an illusion. Living is like sitting in a boat riding down a river of time. We can’t go back and change our decisions because trying to swim upwards would make us drown. But why are placed in this boat in the middle of nowhere, placed on different parts of the flood with no indications of where to go. People become paranoid and try to find whatever solution they can find. But what if we were actually placed here with a reason? But why would we be here? To be tested? If a god loved us, wouldn’t he make sure everyone got fetched to the gates of heaven? Why would he look down on homosexuals or people committing crimes? It’s in out nature to try to survive, even if that craves that we do unmorally things. And being a homosexual, is that really a choice? Homosexuality can be found in other species than humans. It’s thus seems to be more of a genetic disorder than a mental one. If it was a mental disorder depending on choices and feelings, wouldn’t that also mean animals have souls?

The deeper you dig in these types of questions the more they seem to not make sense. Maybe religions exist to be able to control masses of unthinking people. Or maybe they exist to manipulate people to make the top leaders richer. Sometimes religion actually seems nice, but knowing that a possibility exist that people only treat you well because they believe it will be beneficial for themselves makes me lose faith in humanity. Why can’t we be nice to each other without getting some sort of benefit from it? We are placed on this planet traveling insanely fast in space. We could easily be dead within milliseconds if something hit us. But instead of treating each other well or instead of cooperating to explore space, we kill each other. I’m not saying that people are evil, I’m only saying that I wish they were more open minded and would be able to question their authorities.
