God Made Beer

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy" That is what the bumper sticker of a truck in front of me read. That doesn't even make sense, according to the Bible I am pretty sure that God frowns on drinking. This is just one example of how people just assume that there is a god out there and really don't think about it.

This bumper sticker probably annoys me more than the bumper stickers that say "Jesus Loves You!" Those that are driving around with a bumper sticker that says God made beer are giving credence to the idea that there is a God, although most of them haven't set a foot in a church in years. This bumper sticker just goes to show how strong the idea that there is a God really is.

I think that it would be great if people like the guy driving this pickup truck would just stop and think about if the really do believe that there is a God. Then live their life accordingly, if they decide that they really do then maybe they should really look into what the Bible says, but if they decide that they don't then they need to stop furthering the acceptance of religion.

Go easy there, Godless, it's a comedic Benjamin Franklin quote:

He was a founding father, Deist, and outspoken opponent of religious dogma. Granted, I suspect the person driving the truck didn't know it was Franklin that said it, nor that it was said as a tongue-in-cheek proof of "god".

Kyle, thanks for the comment. I know that a lot of people think that Benjamin Franklin said that, but according to most researchers he was actually talking about wine, not beer.

Anyway, I was more going for the overall concept of people just blindly giving credit to god and in doing so assuming that there is actually a god out there.

Again thanks for your comment!
