I’ve often wondered what would happen if I suddenly started believing in a religion.  And some times, this thought extends and grows and I find myself wondering what would happen if everyone suddenly started following one religion.  The entire world.  So using the mindset of a Christian, I thought I’d take a look at the Bible to see what God ultimately has planned for us, and I came across this: –

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

1 Corinthians 1:18-31

 So, just to be clear.  It is in God’s plans to destroy the wisdom of the wise and to frustrate the intelligent.  If there’s anyone out there who would classify themselves as “wise” or “intelligent” I have one question for you.  Why would God, the all powerful being, want to destroy wisdom and frustrate the intelligent?

Let’s think about this logically.  If the bible says that God will destroy wisdom, and frustrate the intelligent, those who are not in possession of those attributes will look at those who do with, at best suspicion or at worse contempt.  Therefore, when the wise and intelligent amongst us stand up and declare that God clearly does not exist, the calls will fall on ears deafened to the people who can actually help us move on as a species.

Whoever wrote The Bible wants the readers to believe that God can destroy wisdom and intelligence because both wisdom and intelligence will lead to the inevitable conclusion the The Bible is a lie, and the God described within it is not real.  And as far as those in positions of power are concerned, the longer they can stunt the development of us as a people, us as a nation, the more they gain.  Because once wisdom and intelligence become widespread, so will the realization that religion is the biggest con of all time.
