Thank you, #rationalwarrior, #GrandUnified, et al., for your “Purpose” music video!

Many moons ago, a Christian guy pointed me to this amateur rapper’s video titled something like “I got proof.” The song was, essentially, saying that the gospel accounts in the Bible are enough evidence of their claims. It’s true because it says it is. As irritating as I found the lyrical content of the song, I admitted that I felt the guy had some great rhythm and delivery, it was just too bad that he chose to waste it on such bullshit.

Now, I’ve been introduced to this:

Beyond really enjoying the song, I was so happy to hear rational lyrics. In case you don’t hear every last syllable, here they are:

All of my life I was the type that thought that I was worthless unless defined by some designer that would grant me purpose

I was a clown that was down with religions 3 ring circus
and convinced that daddy would hurt us and throw us in a furnace

I used to think that Lucifer was waiting by the corner
just planting the seeds of destruction and causing all disorder

total illogical thinking adopted from primitive people
from an era where they first tried to define what’s good and evil

how could you apply that to what we know today
as if we haven’t advanced or learned in the slightest way

when I look back I think about all of the time that I wasted praying to the sky for nothing and mad cause I can’t replace it

so now I’ve gotta live my life by standards I determine
and not be burden with the sermon of some clergy vermin

far as I am concerning it’s ridicule they deserving
and I’ll just keep laughing at their dumb ass til my sides are bursting I spend my time sidestepping the meaningless drivel They tell me I should be nicer but it’s hard to be civil

to all those people who demonize me on every level
and really believe that I’m in league with their fictitious devil

see if the human race was suddenly erased from off the face of the Earth the universe would not even be hurt

so these delusions of grandeur that humans entertain
about how this was all for their benefit is truly insane

trillions of years have gone by while we weren’t even here
the universe was doing fine and didn’t seem to care

see all your arrogance is painfully apparent when
you don’t even get the fact your presence is irrelevant

no matter how you try to be divinely inspired it seems
to just be some foolishness created from your wildest dreams

but my mentality greatly prefers reality and that’s what makes me disregard thoughtless irrationality

It’s my way or the highway and not some god that hides away
that claims domination over me and says what I’m allowed to say

cause I accept responsibility for if I fail or if I succeed
nobody can get it or take credit for it except me

and all of my failures are because of lack of ability
no demons no curses will be the thing that ends up killing me

It’s my life….it’s my time…it’s my choice…it’s my mind so I define…my purpose and see the world through my own eyes

no excuses….so keep your god illusions…
I’m feeling that you blinded sight obscured by your delusions

if you’re connected to something higher then introduce him
if you’re so sure that it’s fucking real then please produce him

maybe some evidence…please at least a shred of it
something that’s convincing that’s overwhelming could settle this

anything except for this fantasy that you’re peddling
about a god with nothing better to do but meddling
