THE HARM DONE BY CHRISTIANITY IN THE PHILIPPINES

          
“Religion: It's given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.”- - - Jon Stewart

Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man -- living in the sky --
who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a
special list of ten things he does not want you to do.. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where 
he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time! But He loves you, and HE NEEDS MONEY! - - - George Carlin

Religion: it has kept us Filipinos religiously sick as a people; and has kept the Philippines politically corrupt as the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century. - - - Poch Suzara
                                                                   

COMMON SENSE ATHEISM IN A NUTSHELL

                   Common Sense Atheism in a Nutshell

                                  by Luke Muehlhauser

Consider: every devout Muslim has the same reasons for being a Muslim that you have for being a Christian. And yet you do not find their reasons compelling….

Why don’t you lose any sleep over whether to convert to Islam? Can you prove that Allah is not the one, true God? Can you prove that the archangel Gabriel did not visit Muhammad in his cave? Of course not. But you need not prove any of these things to reject the beliefs of Muslims as absurd. The burden is upon them to prove that their beliefs about God and Muhammad are valid. They have not done this. They cannot do this….

The truth is, you know exactly what it is like to be an atheist with respect to the beliefs of Muslims. Isn’t it obvious Muslims are fooling themselves? Isn’t it obvious that anyone who thinks that the Koran is the perfect word of the creator of the universe has not read the book critically?…

Understand that the way you view Islam is precisely the way devout Muslims view Christianity. And it is the way I view all religions.

To accept a religion’s claims, you can’t use the reasoning you apply to other religions – your “common” sense – or else you would reject your own religion for the same reasons you reject other religions. The religious person must employ special thinking.
comment:

If we remove GOD from our sick society we will be left with nothing but liars, deceivers, cheaters, polluters, sex seller, sex buyers, swindlers, murderers, kidnappers, robbers, killers, rapists, tax evaders, child molesters, street beggars, sick employers, sick reporters, sick telecasters, sick teachers, sick professors, sick doctors, sick lawyers, sick bookkeepers, sick politicians, sick theologians, sick mothers and  sick fathers happy and proud to produce street children for the dirty streets of our sick and dirty cities - precisely the real horrors historically happening daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly in the Philippines with God always there existing ready and willing and available to forgive all of our sick sins and sick crimes at any time in this only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century. AMEN!  
It has always been a highly profitable religious business for the Priesthood Industry, hasn't it?  - - - Poch Suzara, ATHEIST

The Love of Thought



                                       
There is nothing more contemptible, more despicable, more unstable    in this world than the fear of thought. There is, however, nothing more precious, more delicious, and more nutritious than the love of thought. There is nothing quite like it all of nature. - - -  Poch Suzara

FOR WITH GOD NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. Luke 1:37 - NO KIDDING?

For with God, nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37

No Kidding? What a lot of farce, fraud, and ceremony. Indeed, a lot of spiritual delusions based on lies and deceptions.
If nothing shall be impossible with God, how come it has been possible with God to cure blindness only in one person; to cure leprosy only in    one person; to make the lame walk again only in one person.

Indeed, how come  it has always been impossible with God to make diseases no longer contagious? Miraculously make only health contagious? - - - Poch Suzara

Life After Death Corruption Deal as a Religious Arrangement

YES TO THIS, AS POCH SAID:    I said it before, I say it again: stop teaching Filipino children in school to believe that there is a God existing up out there always ready and available to forgive all of our sins and crimes at any time. Or, that such a God will always open the gates of heaven to those who open their hearts to Him. This is the kind of a sick education that promotes nothing but sick corruption for our sick society to remain sick forever and ever. Even our sick and corrupt government officials are so happy and proud of the sick and insane religious arrangement! helen

Questions are Far More Precious than the Answers

Once you have learned to ask questions - relevant and appropriate and substantial questions - you have learned how to learn and no one can keep you from learning whatever you want or need to learn. - - - Neil Postman

Indeed, questions are far more precious than the answers because the answers, in reality, become obsolete. Consider the nature of reality: each unfolding reality contains the seeds of its own destruction and the embryo of a new reality that will replace it. After I got myself expelled out          of La Salle high school, I carried on with what in fact got me expelled: I carried on habitually           in life questioning not only about this or that something; but questioning everything. - - - Poch   Suzara

For This Christmas I will celebrate not the Birth of a Jewish Son of God, but Man's Capacity to Think

We are told that we are saved not by what we do but by trusting what Christ has done. To think that this is the same Christ who was born of   a Jewish family in a Jewish town under Jewish history, culture, and tradition some 2,000 years ago. Israel today is not even a Christian country. It is a Jewish State populated by Jews, ruled by Jews, and inspired by Judaism – a major religion that does not celebrate Christmas – the Birth    of Christ.  In this already 21st century, if Christ cares not to save his native fellow-Jews in Israel, why should Christ bother to save the Filipinos or even save the Philippines? 

In the meantime, I say it again: the pleasures in growth and positive achievement, the love of life, happy, expansive, generous, and creative; glad when others happy, and not glad when others are not happy - are the precious things on my mind while I celebrate Christmas this year. Indeed, for this Christmas, I should wish to celebrate the birth of the Filipino capacity to think, especially to think  in terms of growth as a healthy people, and in terms of development as a wealthy nation.

I have no wish to celebrate the birth anniversary of Christ, but only to celebrate instead the birth of the the power of thought to love the truth, beauty, knowledge, and the joys of this life in this world in the here and now. These will do for Christmas this year; however, for Christmas next year, I may wish to celebrate Christmas with higher or more meaningful reasons; specially with nothing to do with the birth of a Jewish Son of a Jewish God.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU.

Life After Death is a Sick Joke

 
If there were life after death in heaven,
how come our dead loved-ones never
visit us the living on earth? It is we, the 
living, who visits our dead loved-ones
in the cemeteries. 

Obviously, life after death is a sick joke 
since the dead cannot even laugh at the
living visiting the faithfools in the cemetery.

A LIST OF MY GREAT FRIENDS


When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.                                                       
                                                                     Japanese Proverb 
                                                                     
Oh Yes, may I say if I continue to be an unclear character on 
these pages, please look at the friends that I  gradually developed 
down through the years after I got expelled out of La Salle high 
school at the age of 13: Bertrand Russell, Will Durant, Robert G. Ingersoll, Carl Sagan, George H. Smith, Jean Meslier, Jose Rizal, 
Richard Dawkins,  Mark Twain,  Voltaire, George Bernard Shaw, 
Thomas Paine, Madlyn Murray O'Hair, H.L. Mencken, Margaret Mead, Ruth Benedict, Joseph McCabe, Karl Marx, Ellen Johnson, Carl Jung,
 friedrich Nietzche, Albert Camus, Thomas Jefferson, Ernest Hemmingway, Stephen Hawking, Clarence Darrow, Charlie Chaplin, Noam Chomsky, George Carlin, Isaac Asimov, Walt Whitman, Lee Carter, John Shelby Spong, Socrates, Hypatia, and more, many 
many many more. The great men and great women in world history
who have had the intellectual courage to put more beauty into this world where frightened little men and frightened little women have 
put only horrors of childish beliefs and silly values such as the pursuit not of veracity, but only of money if not more mendacity! 

If there were life after death, these are the great men and great women I'd like to meet first and foremost to thank them for having written books for me to read and to study.  - - - Poch Suzara
