Ateis: Tuhan Itu Sama Saja Dengan Botol Susu (Bagian pertama)

23 November 2009 11:19:00 Dibaca :

Sungguh menarik memahami bagaimana logika seorang ateis dalam menyimpulkan bahwa tidak ada Tuhan. Sangat menantang namun sekaligus inspiratif.

Jika Anda tidak siap secara iman untuk berdiskusi isu-isu ateis, jangan baca tulisan ini. Jika Anda terlanjur membaca dan mengalami kebingungan, silahkan tanya orang beriman yang menguasai isu-isu ateis.

Tadi malam saya menerima link youtube berjudul "The best optical illusion in the world!" yang menjelaskan bahwa Tuhan itu tidak ada bedanya dengan Botol Susu.

Mungkin karena film tersebut dibuat oleh seseorang yang berasal dimana penganut kristiani nya adalah mayoritas, maka apa yang dipertentangkan di film tersebut adalah ketuhanan nya sahabat-sahabat kristiani. Tapi yang dipermasalahkan bukan masalah trinitas kok tetapi Tuhan sahabat kristiani secara umum. Dan itu mewakili Tuhan semua agama secara umum.

Tentu saja ateis tidak hanya mempermasalahkan ketuhanan versi keyakinan sahabat kristiani, tetapi ketuhanan pada umumnya sehingga sahabat muslim juga perlu mengetahuinya.

Inti ide didalam film tersebut

Dari judulnya saja kita sudah mengetahui bahwa Tuhan itu hanya sekedar ilusi saja.
So let's imagine that one day you have a big problem, and you pray to God for a solution. However, God does not answer your prayer. There is no response at all.

You are disappointed. perhaps angry, and you do not understand what went wrong. If you talk to another Christian or look the web and ask, "Why didn't God answer my prayer ?" you will hear a response like this :

"We have to trust that He knows what's best. God answers prayers in the form of 'yes','no' and 'wait'. Sometimes the hardest answer to accept is 'wait'.It's difficult to be left in limbo, wondering how God will handle our problem, but we must have faith that He will!" - Christianity.com

'Yes', 'No' and 'Wait'. That is how God answers prayers. You have probably heard this a thousand times, and you believe it completely.

'Yes', 'No' and 'Wait' may sound comforting, but here is the thing that I would like to help you understand.

'Yes', 'No' and 'Wait'is actually an optical illusion
Disini pengarang film tersebut mulai memperkenalkan konsep ketuhanan botol susu ;)
Let me show you how this illusion works. Imagine that I put a jug of milk on the counter, and I say to you, "Pray to the jug of milk." I tell you that if you pray to the jug of milk, it will answer all your prayers.

You are skeptical, but you agree to try it. You pray to the jug of milk to give you $1,000.

Now I say to you: "The jug of milk answers prayers in the form of 'yes', 'no' and 'wait'. Let's see what happens."

What is going to happen? There are three scenarios:


  1. Scenario 1: Out of the blue, a check for $1,100 arrives in the mail tomorrow.
    It is anunexpected tax refund check from the IRS.
    I say to you. "See! The jug of milk answered yur prayer!"
  2. Scenario 3:
    Seven weeks later, out of the blue, you get a cost-of-living raise and it happens to increase your salary by $1,200 per year.
    I say to you, "See! The jug of milk answered your prayer! You just had to wait patiently."
  3. Scenario 3:
    Nothing happens for six months.
    You ask me, "Why?" I say, "We have to trust that the milk jug knows what's best.
    Let's be patient."



Sekarang penulisnya mulai melakukan provokasi dengan memainkan kartu "harga diri"kita sebagai orang yang pintar dengan cara mengarahkan pada ketidaklogisan menuhankan Botol Susu:
Now let me ask you: Will you get down on your knees and worship this jug of milk ? Probably not. But why not?

You won't worship the jug of milk because you know it didn't do anything.
The jug of milk did not "answer" your "prayer"?
The milkof jug did not cause you to get a raise or get a check in the mail.
Pembuat film menyatakan bahwa apa yang kita terima dari penyembahan terhadap botol susu hanyalah sekedar kebetulan saja, Tuhan botol susu nya tidak melakukan apapun.:
Did the milk jug do anything at all ? No. Absolutely not. You know that. We both know that. It was nothing more than a coincidence.
Nah sekarang sang pembuat film mulai mengarahkan pada kesimpulan bahwa Tuhan itu tidak ada. Seperti halnya Tuhan Botol Susu, Tuhan itu tidak melakukan apa-apa. Yang kita terima itu hanya kebetulan saja.
If you are a smart person, you may be starting to see the illusion of prayer:

"Gow answers prayers in the form of 'yes', 'no' and 'wait'." - Christianity.com
"The jug of milk answers prayers in the form of 'yes', 'no' and 'wait'." - me

"We have to trust that God knows what's best." - Christianity.com
"We have to trust that God knows what's best." - me
