Heavens and the human curiosity

If I am to go with the claim that a god exists and he created everything, and that humans were originally in a place called heaven, and man sinned eating from the forbidden tree, “be it a literal story or a metaphor it really doesn’t matter”, simply because we were curious, then I’d bet everything, that even if god mass-forgives humanity and brings them back to heaven, it will be a matter of few days at most that we would eat again from the forbidden tree of knowledge. 

Curiosity is intrinsic in the human nature, it is an elevated and evident built-in property in the human species, and our curiosity for the unknown will kick us back again from heavens. If god is the creator of everything then he is also responsible for having created the human curiosity. Why would such a being judge me for something he created in me which I had no choice in it from the beginning? A god like this can be called either stupid or evil… Or maybe both 

Curiosity is one of the basic reasons for inventions, science and technology. It is our built-in capacity to ask daring questions and challenge nature. 

Keep guarding heaven’s doors dear god. Science and reason will one day destroy them like we humans destroyed the wall of Berlin. Nobody needs your boring heaven with zero curiosity.

About Mike

Hello, I am an atheist because of reason and personal experience. I am a father of THREE lovely living kids and two dead embryos, married to a lovely Christian Catholic devoted woman. Yes, black and white can coexist as long as there is respect and love, which is something abstracted from any belief or religion. I do not claim absolute truth and not 100% sure that a God does not exist somewhere out there. The scientific method is what I use to connect to reality. If there is something I don't understand, then it is because i don't understand, not because god exists. In case you haven't noticed, I am a native Arab, and English is my third language (yes there is second language). I like reading the Bible and the Quran and the critics of both of them. I also love watching documentaries especially astronomy, cosmology, Quantum Physics, and new discoveries in science in general, and Physics in particular.

  1. A method to control. That’s all this religion is.
    Imagine leaders/elders/whatever telling their populace not to be curious, not to question authority, only do what they’re told (or else).
    Why? For power and control. That’s all it is and that’s the only explanation that really makes any sense.
