TheMachine by B0073D TheMachine by B0073D
I hate when people (or bodies of people IE governments etc) do things in Gods (or Allah or whatever you want to call him/her/it/them) name! Most of us have sort of forgotten whats going on over there in Iraq. That doesn't mean its not happening anymore. We've just started to get used to the thought. Whether we like it or not.


Anyway, back to the topic:
I get frustrated when people (or governments) say they follow god and then do something like.... Invade a country?? This piece is dedicated to using God as an excuse for evil.


Just sick of people going out and doing things in Gods name....

And now i'm very sleepy!

*goes to sleep*

DD! WOW! THANKYOU SO MUCH!

Go check these peeps out!

:iconjason-c::iconjoannastar:

THANKYOU!

I will try and reply to all your comments and such but it might take a little while...

P.S. It seems that some people are wondering how religion comes into play here. One of my main points in this argument is the official US motto. 'In God We Trust'. ( See here: [link] )

I do not believe that you can say such a thing, such a bold statement, without at least IMPLYING that everything you do is of god.

Once you begin to portray your allegiance (If you will) In such a way, you can no longer really separate the two anymore (State and religion).

But thats my belief anyway...

EDIT: Uploaded separate print version because I had to screw with the image to get it a little larger for print. See:

"TheMachine by =GustavTheMushroom is very simple, yet conveys a message that is relevant to our times. It uses 3d in a very striking way, and can be instantly recognized and understood by everyone. Sometimes, the best art is the art that can slice through the complex facade of our civilisation and present us with a moment of clarity."

I don't fully understand the concept, but i do agree that doing things in God's name should not be taken lightly. Its a very powerful thing to say.

First they fill your mind with peace and god and then they say you need to go in war to fight in god`s name against unbelievers.
They teach you about the "truth" that is never really told, they made their hero. They made him raise from the grave.
Religion`s concept for war in god`s name is just dumb enough to work on most of humans that make themselves pathetic when doing things in god`s name. People are blind, church is fake. The truth they can`t see, in the lake of blood. Made with war for the god dog.

I love the picture. ♥ Favorite!

Fantastic work. I love how simple the models are (well, the tanks are quite complex) and I love the clean white surface and the lighting. And the symbolism is top notch in my opinion.

The tricky thing here is that the aggressors who invade countries worship a different God than those who speak out against it. I tend to agree with you....but try explaining this to a fundamentalist Christian or a radical Muslim.

Islamic people are those who practice jihad(war to defend their country-AND ONLY TO DEFEND THEIR COUNTRY- in the name of Allah) and the people you see on the news that invaded our country are the Extremists. That's NOT what their whole country or religion is about.
It's just people who got the wrong idea in their heads as to what their religion means.
Islam(Muslim), Christianity, and Judaism are all centered from the exact same three characteristics: Peace, Love, and God/Allah(Yeah, they're the exact same person!)
So, really, this picture is only showing Islamic/Jihad Extremists, not all Muslims/Arabs.
It's not a religious/racist ordeal.
