Killing God... and the rise of the Flying Spaghetti Monster? I will stick with Jedi master :P

Today I was checking Facebook and a person status stated "Trying to understand "God" is like being back in high school and hitting my head against a brick wall.". Well for those of you that know me, you understand that I would have to post something. I checked of few of the comments to see what the issue was about. It was and pretty much about an essay on why monotheism is better than polytheisms considering the premise that god or gods do exist. Of course I had to state:

“One can look at it as a natural progression, first we killed all gods except for one, and now we are progressing in killing (some already did) the last remainder of this illusion. God is in the unknown, and with knowledge comes its natural demise, this is true now has it was for the Greeks... It is just simpler to kill gods when they are responsible for something, as opposite killing a god that is always hiding in the next question. Thus, why the one god concept is still with us...”

It is interesting how the construct of a single god can evolve and keeps eluding finding its place in the next big question. God created men. Unless man has evolved, in that case god created evolution, which in turn created men. So actually god created men, just a bit more indirectly than originally stated. It is easy to see that the death of god is in absolute knowledge, and since the premise of achieving absolute knowledge is an absurdity (despite it being more probable than the existence of such being as god is portrayed) , one will never be certain of its death. And yet, one cannot be certain of nothing really, so the it is quite simple some believe in god, some in the flying spaghetti, others that in a far, far away galaxy there is this little green alien with pointy ears called yoda who is a master Jedi…. I like this Jedi one, the idea of the force seems more plausible and yet still absurd…

P.S.- This does not cover religion, that would  be a huge can of worms. Still quite simple to address considering it is easier to debunk religion, whatever it may be, than the concept of god :P
