Why did we stop inventing gods?

The ancients were quite good at inventing new gods. The bible shows that the Jews invented many gods before deciding that god could not be defined and settled for “I am“, as the greatest expression of god. “I am” as spoken as a man.



Jews, in their oral tradition, gave man the last word in what god and his policies were to be. They accepted that the man they chose as head Rabbi of their Divine council had the power to overrule their written tradition. Man’s words, not an imaginary god, had the final say on policy. Man was supreme and not one of the imaginary gods.

Christianity then changed much of the morals and policies of their newly invented god, Yahweh, and also transferred the power of god to a man. Jesus. Jesus was now placed at the power seat at the right hand of his newly invented god and placed Yahweh in the right hemisphere of the brain, as shown in the art of the day as depicted by Michelangelo in his creation painting in the Vatican.

Islam then invented Allah, and so far, rightfully named him the last god to be invented. Foolish but true to date.

I see that search for a god as a search for the best laws and rules to live life by. After all, we cannot follow an imaginary god and can only follow the laws and rules that those imaginary gods has spoken, recognizing of course, that only a person can speak those laws and rules and that it was really a wise person who was uttering those words.

Gnostic Christians always saw those invented gods, specifically Yahweh, Jesus and Allah, as immoral and not worthy of us and that is why they named those gods as immoral and vile demiurges. This is not to say that those demiurges did not have some good policies but only says that a better god could and should be invented. Gnostic Christianity lost the god wars and was decimated the moment Christianity gained political power which they used to end freedom of religion.

Are immoral demiurges like Yahweh, Jesus and Allah, the best that mankind can come up with?

Why do you think we stopped inventing gods and settled for demonstrably immoral ones?

P.S. Gods are the opium of the people.

Because the monotheist desert cults have ruled with violence and fear for 2,000 years.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

But I'm not so sure I would agree with the "invent" part.

Divide and Conquer.
Everything started from greek. Of the universal construct of "God and Goddesses"
Then the roman wanted a controlled nation so they created christianity and followed forth those near the same tyranny.

None of them delivered, ever.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Some still wait for the arrival of this sky monkey 2,000 years later, and keep getting stood up! Patient lot they are.

I`m no expert in the field, but based on what I see and know, most gods love money and power.

Strange that those religions of peace and love could only grow themselves with violence instead of good deeds, yet retain the respect of so many.

It must be due to our natural love of drama and the epitome of that is war.

Perhaps this will help you accept the term.



If not what term would you use?

Yet they were on the way to a decent and moral religion before Christianity took what the had over.

It is still better as Jews rightfully recognize that god is to serve man and not man serve god.

True.

We took a, --- my religion and tribe, right or wrong, --- instead of seeking a better god.

No wonder intelligent children and young adults are rejecting religions and their hypocrisy.
