Thanks To My Free Wll

Thanks to my free will I am free to believe that there is no God. But thanks even more free will, I believe it necessary to tell grown-ups that there is no God; just as much as I also believe that it is also necessary to tell children that there is no Santa Claus. Poch Suzara

Eternity Existed

Eternity existed before we were born. Eternity will continue to exist after we are all dead and gone. Sadly, however, eternity does not seem to care whether we had lived briefly or had died eventually. And to think that we all begin to die as soon as we are born. The idea therefore is to live decent and wholesome lives not by wasting it preparing for the next life, as there isn't any. Poch Suzara

One Hundred Billion People

Approximately ONE BILLION people leave this world every 25 years or every generation. This means that more than 100 BILLION people have already lived and died on this earth since biblical times. Now if God could inspire authors to write the bible, wouldn't it be wonderful if the same God could inspire as well the theologians of today to give us a report as to just exactly how many people have been saved and made it to heaven? And how many people are already damned in hell? This report could be certified by Jesus who, according to biblical account, ascended bodily to heaven and there with him is his mother Mary, and his father Joseph including the saints. For my part, until I get such a report, I shall continue to be a happy and a proud atheist till the day I die. After I am dead, and I meet with God in the next world, I hope I get a chance to ask God: as a God with power and authority what exactly have you done to answer the daily prayers said by millions upon millions of Filipinos to save them away from poverty, especially spiritual poverty as a people; and, to straighten out the religious mess that's been keeping Philippines messy and backward economically as the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century? - Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

No Labor Leaders

There are no labor leaders in the Philippines. There are, however, labor dealers who are in business for themselves at the expense of labor. Poch Suzara

In The Afterlife

If the afterlife, if any, I do not care to be with God in heaven or to be with Satan in hell. I would rather spend eternity with the likes of Bertrand Russell, Will Durant, Carl Sagan, Richard Dawkins, Robert G.Ingersoll, Tom Paine, Jose Rizal, and with my sweetheart, my lover, my sexual partner: - a dear and a trustworthy friend, my editor, my associate, a fellow-atheist, a rarity indeed, as she is that kind of woman to me that I thought existed only in dreams. Poch Suzara

Beliefs Cannot Promote

Beliefs cannot promote themselves. Beliefs need schools, colleges, and universities at best; at worst, however, it needs the army, navy, and the air force to promote such nonsense. As for the values of unbeliefs by way of doubt that promotes a rational way of living, all that is required are three simple skills: - critical thinking, evidential reasoning, and questioning authority. Poch Suzara

Three Certain Things

Aside from death and taxes that are certain, there is one more thing that's certain: you are your mother's child. Fathers are sometimes hard to determine even by mothers. Poch Suzara

The Priesthood Industry

The number one enemy of liberty has always been the priesthood industry. The priests have never accepted the power of free thought. Their teachings are still based on faith without which there is no such thing as the priesthood industry. Poch Suzara

It Does Not Matter

It does not matter to me if God does not believe in me. What's more important to me is that I do not care to believe in God. It is a heavy burden to believe in non-human beings that do not exist. Besides, if there is a God, why is he always out there instead of being down here with us everywhere? Poch Suzara

The Most Belittled Character

The most belittled character mentioned in the holy bible is Joseph. He was told by an angel of God that his wife Mary is still a virgin. Can you blame Joseph was being so dumbstruck? The day he found out about his wife's virginal condition, he refused to talk to any one. Not even to the bible inspired authors. Poch Suzara

Democracy versus Theocracy

Everything is a lesser evil in the Philippines; especially its democracy. It has as yet to put up with a greater evil: theocracy. Poch Suzara

Philippine Population

The population of the Philippines is composed of demons in the minority; fallen angels in the majority; and the rest are the misbegotten children of God. We got to be proud of something. After all, we were once the only and now the biggest Christian country in Asia. Poch Suzara

God is Good

God is good; sadly, however, not that good. God was good when He inspired the authors to write the holy bible; unfortunately, He was not that good when He forgot to inspire as well the best part of any book: - the readers. Poch Suzara

Kill The Evil Called Religion

Yes, we can kill the evil called religion with the power of thought. Unfortunately, religion has already made sure, with the crippling weapon of the threats of eternal punishment, that our power to think stays crippled for the rest of our lives. Poch Suzara

For God So Loved the World

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have life everlasting." God may have loved the world; but at the rate God allowed the world to beat up, scourge, spit, shove, push, hurt and nail his son Jesus crying and bleeding and dying on the cross, God obviously never loved the poor fellow. In the meantime, top management then in heaven were all like a bunch of silly theologians here on this earth. They thought it was such a great idea to crucify not the devil, or crucify the Talking Serpent, but put instead the son of God Jesus crucified on the cross to die for the sins of the world.

I said it before, I say it again: to hell with this biblical baloney. Poch Suzara

I Was Once A Devout Catholic

Indeed, I was once a devout Catholic. If there were a God, however, that I will meet after I am dead, the first thing I will do is to ask God to forgive me for having wasted some 18 precious years of my life as a heartless Christian in general and a mindless Catholic in particular. Poch Suzara

There is No God

Only a fool says there is no God. For my part, I would rather be a fool than believe that we can pray daily to God to "give us this day our daily bread" and then see men, women and children starving to death even as they love, worship, and adore such a God. Poch Suzara

The Power of Prayer

i am told that prayer works. Look at Mary, the Mother of God, who asked the world to pray for the conversion of Russia. It worked. Communism has collapsed in Russia. Well, how come the prayers of Catholic Russians themselves did not work when they prayed for the prevention of communism to spread throughout Russia to begin with? Poch Suzara

If Prayer Works

If prayer works, how come we still need hospitals? How come we still need the medical profession? How come we still need to improve the existence of medical science and technology? Indeed, if prayer works, how come health has not yet been made contagious by the power of God as the result of the power of prayer? Poch Suzara

If Stupidity Causes Trouble

If intelligence causes trouble, what is needed is not less, but more intelligence. It is same thing with freedom: If freedom causes trouble, what is needed is not less, but more freedom. It is not the case, however, with stupidity for, if stupidity causes trouble, what is needed is not more, but precisely no more stupidity. Poch Suzara


When there is no vision, people perish. When there is vision, people flourish. As the only Christian country in Asia since the 15th century, where is the vision for the here to love our fellow-citizens, and where is the vision for the now to love our country? Poch Suzara

If There is No God

If there is no God everything is permissible? In fact, since there is always available from God at any time the forgiveness of sins and crimes everything is permissible that makes for our sick and insane society. Poch Suzara

We Arrive At The Truth

We arrive at the truth not by easy praying but by hard thinking. Most people, however, do not like to think. They already know and enjoy the truth. It's called the Revealed Truth. The problem, however, with the Revealed Truth is that it has not yet been revealed to the Filipinos; it has only been revealed by God to His chosen people - the Jews. Poch Suzara

Education in the Philippines

What is education all about in the Philippines - the only Christian country in Asia? Six years in grade school. Four years in high school. Another four to six years in college. It is all about learning how to pray, and how love, worship, and adore a Jewish God who will provide as He provided us with a son Jesus born in a manger and died on a stick in Israel some two thousand years ago. And to think that Israel today is not a Christian country. It continues to be a Jewish State. Poch Suzara

Crucified Dead On The Cross

After he had been crucified dead on the cross, Jesus managed to resurrect himself back to life to be the Savior of the world. Sadly however, Jesus forgot to resurrect the dead level of intelligence of the dummies who had him crucified dead on the cross over nothing and for the sake of accomplishing nothing. Thus, as the Savior of the world Jesus was a failure! He miserably failed to save the world. Even the faithful believers on these pages are in desperate need of a Savior today! Poch Suzara

Curiosity Killed The Cat

Curiosity killed the cat. At least before the cat died, it was curious. What's shameful are those higher forms of animals, and with college diploma at that. I know many of them have already died and not one that I know of was ever curious. Poch Suzara

Success in Life

It is quite easy to be a success in life, specially if your ambition were only to do with licking the rear of others. It is much harder, however, to be a failure in life. Specially if your ambition were more to do with licking the fear in others. Poch Suzara

Atheistic Responsibility

There are those of us who have learned to love and enjoy not only the maturity, but especially the responsibility of atheism. For Christ's sake, why should we go back to the childish gullibility behind the irresponsibility that continues to grace the immaturity of theism always at variance with humanism? Poch Suzara

My Precious Mind

I have already gifted half of my soul to God in hell and the other half I have also gifted it to the devil in heaven. I hope those two supernatural morons are already satisfied with my generosity. Both should now stop fighting each other over winning my silly soul. Meanwhile, never will I ever again surrender to divinity or to deviltry the most priceless treasures I possess in this world: My most precious mind. Poch Suzara

The Love of Money

The bible says: "The love of money is the root of all evil." Sadly, Jesus Christ never addressed this issue. Thus, both in the Christian and non-Christian world today, the love of money keeps everybody not only in an evil mess due to the lack of it, but those who have tons of money, they only continue to be selfish, greedy, stupid, and insane.
In the meantime, in the Philippines. the only Christian country in Asia, if you steal small, you go to jail. Steal big, however, and you automatically qualify to be a candidate for Congress. Poch Suzara

The Free Mind

Rree will is great; fortunately, the good will is greater; but more fortunately, however, is the free mind. It is the greatest. There is absolutely nothing quite like it in all of nature. Poch Suzara

The Difference

It is easy to tell the difference between a moron and an idiot. An idiot can easily be frightened with ideas. A moron, however, from the cradle to the grave, has always been afraid of his own thought even if he has been thoughtless for most of his life. Poch Suzara

According To The Bible

According to the bible: "The dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward." Eccls 9:5. Sadly, however, among my classmates in De la Salle Colege, inspite the fact that they are not yet dead, they still love to know not anything and they expect to be rewarded for it happily in the next life in heaven. Poch Suzara

If Jesus Christ Had Only

If Jesus Christ had only sacrificed himself to make amends not for the sins of man, but precisely for the sins of God; indeed, to have asked the human race to forgive divine disgrace, Christianity today need not have to believe that God made man in His own image and likeness. Poch Suzara

My atheist brother-in-law

My atheist brother-in-law was dying of cancer. A distant relative called me on the phone to inquire if he already turned back and now believes in God? I said: "No, I hope not. God's already killing him and you expect the poor fellow to love, worship, and adore his killer?" Poch Suzara
