Divinity, US Marines, and Humanity

December 25, 2004

Dear Sir:

Mankind has suffered much and continues to suffer much from a disease called “divinity.” If we want a cure, we should only take the medicine called “humanity.”

Thanks for emailing me a photo of the U.S. Marines fervently praying to God in Iraq. Happily, the bible claims that: “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:6. Unhappily, however, the same bible also admits: “There is none righteous, no, not one.” Rom. 3:10.

Abraham was willing to kill his son out of obedience to God. Fighting armies too are willing to obey the word of command without question to their Commander in Chief. The soldier who kills, the bomber pilot that destroys thousands of lives and properties in a minute are indeed heroes due to, if not because of, the principle of unquestioning obedience.

In child sacrifice, the father kills the child for the sake of obedience. In war, however, parents on both sides have an arrangement to kill each other’s sons and daughters for the sake of obedience.

I ask: who benefits from such horrors? Obviously not humanity. Only the church or synagogue or mosque officials in search for more glory on the one hand; and, on the other hand, the homicidal maniacs as heads of government in search for more power. But let’s not exclude the corrupt businessmen in search for more freedom to make more profit. Whatever the case may be, what prevails is not love of humanity, but only more hate and violence and war to please divinity.

Now let’s take a good look at the fighting armies on both side fervently praying to God for victory. The army that is victorious thanks God for the victory. The army that is defeated, however, continues to pray to God for vengeance. Thus, as soon as war is over, we lay the foundation of another. Indeed, there has yet to be a war to end all wars - the war against poverty – especially poverty of the worst kind: - poverty of the human mind and the poverty of the human heart.

Here is Bertrand Russell and I urge you readers to deeply reflect on what this great man simply wrote: “Many a man will have the courage to die gallantly in battle, but will not have the courage to say, or even to think, that the cause for which he is asked to die is an unworthy one.” Meanwhile . . . “Few men seem to realize how many of the evils from which we suffer are wholly unnecessary, and that they could be abolished by a united effort within a few years. If the majority of every civilized country so desired, we could, within twenty years, abolish all abject poverty, quite half the illness in the world, the whole economic slavery which binds down nine tenths of our population; we could fill the world with beauty and joy, and secure the reign of universal peace. It is only because men are apathetic that this is not achieved, only because imagination is sluggish, and what always has been is regarded as what always must be. With good-will, generosity, intelligence, these things could be brought about.” Poch Suzara, Chairman, Bertrand Russell Society, Philippines

Jesus was an Ignorant Fellow

Jesus said: “Love not this world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the father is not with him.” John 2:15. Poor Jesus. He was such an ignorant fellow. He obviously knew nothing of his own father’s creation. Jesus never knew that this world is but a speck of dust in the galaxies. Our Milky Way galaxy is comprised of some 400,000.000,000 stars and planets and according to the science of astronomy – there are more than 100 billion of other galaxies out there. Astronomer Carl Sagan put it quite informatively. In his book COSMOS, he writes: “A handful of sand contains about 10,000 grains, more than the number of stars we can see with the naked eye on a clear night. But the number of stars we can SEE is only the tiniest fraction of the number of stars that ARE. What we see at night is the merest smattering of the nearest stars. Meanwhile, the Cosmos is rich beyond measure: the total number of stars in the universe is greater than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the planet earth.” Poor Jesus, What a silly waste to preach to parasites living on this insignificant grain of sand somewhere in just one galaxy alone - to love not this grain of sand neither the things that are on this silly grain of sand.

The Burning Bush In the Catholic Bible

Moses asked the Burning Bush about its identity. In the Catholic bible, the bush replies: I AM WHO AM. Ex.3:4. This is the same Burning Bush whose first commandment says: "I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not have other Gods before me." Poch Suzara

Silly Immortality

As an atheist I do not believe in immortality consisting of a “hereafter” because there is no evidence of a “herebefore.” Immortality must connect hereafter and herebefore together or else there is no such thing as immortality. Poch Suzara

Everybody is an Agnostic

The Catholics are agnostic to the Protestant creed. The Protestants are agnostic to the Catholic creed. Christianity is agnostic to Islam as the Muslims are agnostic to the Jewish creed. In the meantime, the enemy of religion the power of reason under the power of knowledge. For my part, I am not an agnostic but an atheist: I have no respect for any of great religions of the world as all, each and every one of them, have been based on sacred traditional lies. Poch Suzara

The Fear of the Lord

The fear of the Lord is not the life of wisdom; on the contrary, it is the death of wisdom. Wisdom comes from doubt as it produced the modern world of science and technology. The ancient world was the child of fear, faith, and primitive beliefs and values. Science is the Savior of mankind; and if mankind is still in trouble, what is needed is not less, but more science. Poch Suzara

Freedom FROM Religion

To enjoy to the fullest the freedom of religion one must first and foremost enjoy the freedom from religion. Poch Suzara


Creationism is not science. It is a religion because of its direct dependence on things supernatural, not naturaL. Science, when it has no explanation for anything at the moment, is quite honest enough to admit its limitation. Poch Suzara

The Most Meaningful

The most meaningful of all conflicts is between the scientists and the theologians because it is a serious dispute over the proper method are arriving at the truth by reasoning and observation. The theologians claim that factual knowledge can be attained by what is revealed in the bible. They use the bible to arrive at a vast array of claims which are unverifiable by the scientists. Science is simply the search for purely naturalistic description and explainable of everything in the natural world. Science claims to know nothing of the supernatural world as it cannot be verified or even falsified. Poch Suzara

Paul Contradicts Jesus

“And Jesus said, Verily, I say unto you, except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3 - 4. Now Paul says exactly the opposite: “When I was a child, I spake like a child, I understood like a child, I thought like a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” 1 Cor. 13:11 Poch Suzara

Atheist Turning Back to God

There is no such thing as an atheist turning back to God. Which God? Of which religion? Indeed, we atheists respect ourselves always thinking while we are standing up to something. We have no sympathy for those always kneeling down while praying to nothing.
Poch Suzara

Be Like God

The bible tells us to be like God, then on page after page it describes God as Aristotle once put it: “A cold blooded perfection lost in self-admiration.” Isn’t it hard enough for man that God already made man in His own image and likeness?

Guilt Not Love

Christianity thrives not on love but on guilt. For all of its alleged concern for the “poor in spirit,” Christianity does its best to perpetuate spiritual poverty, social misery, and intellectual vacuity. Thus, “Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Poch Suzara

It is a Miracle

It is indeed a miracle that in every war, soldiers on both sides pray fervently for victory, but only one side wins. Yet those victorious believe their prayers have been answered, and those defeated do not cease to pray to kill the enemy in the future. God must be so proud of Himself. Poch Suzara

The Death of Christ

There are six descriptions of the death and burial of Jesus Christ and the discovery of his empty tomb and all six do not harmonize with either consistency or uniformity. See the 4 gospel writers; plus the speech of Paul in Acts 13:26-34; and Acts 5:30 where Jesus was not crucified on a cross, but hanged on a tree. Poch Suzara

The Price of Superstition

If you think education is expensive, consider not only the price of ignorance but more so the price of superstition always in friendly terms with ignorance. Poch Suzara

Bible Absurdities

“Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.” Ex. 1:22 "But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days." (Leviticus 12:5) “And now Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? . . . Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But the women chlldren, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. Lev. 31: 15, 18,19. “Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. . . And they made their drink wine that night also; and the daughter arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. . . Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.” Genesis 19: 32-36. “For this Melchisedec, King of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; . . . Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.” Heb. 7:1-3. Where in hell is Melchisedec? How come nobody has seen this fellow anywhere in the world? Obviously, he is still alive. Why Is he like God out there always hiding away from the problems and troubles of our world down here? “. . . Hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?” ll Kings 18:27 Another author was equally inspired by God to write down exactly the same silly sacred words: “. . . Hath he not sent me to the mean which sit on the wall that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?” Isaiah 36:12 Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

Jesus Was Not a Writer

Jesus never wrote a book or even an article or an essay or even a letter. He wrote, however, on the ground with his finger. See John 8:6. Imagine the Son of the Creator of the universe. He had neither paper nor pencil in the community where He lived. And this is the Savior of the world who could raise the dead back to life, but he could not write down the medical information to help raise the standard of the medical profession of his time and place. Poch Suzara

Free Will

If God gifted man with a free will it means that we have the free choice to choose which religion to embrace or to have faith in. In the meantime, in this world, hate and violence and war are rooted precisely due to, if not because of, none of us have the free will to choose which religion to accept to which to reject, or, for that matter to reject all of the great religions of the world. Poch Suzara


It seems clear enough that the logic of the theists is based upon the logic of Aristotle made obsolete with the power of Christian ethics. The logic of the atheists, however, is derived from the logic of Bertrand Russell made modern with
the power of mathematics. Poch Suzara

Designer of Nature

There are beauties and ugliness in nature. To believe that there exists a designer means that there is also a manufacturer of nature. Obviously, if there were a manufacturer, it is certainly bereft of taste or quality control. It just continues doing its job manufacturing recklessly, if not meaninglessly, not to mention aimlessly. I ask: where is nature heading? Neither its designer nor its manufacturer, if were there any, knows. Poch Suzara

At The Heart of Everything

At the heart of everything is not an answer, but a simple question leading to even more complex questions. That is how I try to look at everything. No, I am not a scientist or a philosopher or even a mathematician. I just enjoy playing, rightly or wrongly, with my mind – free as it is. Poch Suzara

Poor and Notorious

I have met Filipino women who dropped out of high school in order to support their parents, brothers and sisters. A few have even ended up to be rich and famous. For my part, I dropped out of high school because I wanted to learn and to embark on a lifetime adventure in learning. No, I did not become rich and famous. However, in the world of mediocrity supported by gullibility, I certainly got to be poor and notorious; specially,
as I got to be more studious. Poch Suzara

The idiot Box

Whenever I turn on the TV set I feel like I am really the Sick Man of Asia. After I turned it off watching the morons in action and saying nothing to each other, I feel like I am one of the healthiest man in Asia. Poch Suzara

American Evil

The love of money is the root of all evil. If evil were spreading worldwide, we can only blame the Americans. They love not only making money but also love investing in order to make more money. Indeed, since a century ago, America ceased to be a nation. It has developed to be one gigantic corporation. In fact, Americans, especially via the US government will create real enemies for themselves just for the sake of driving the gears of its economy by going to war against other nations as war is big business. There is money to be made in the business of killing people, if not each other. It used to be known a century ago as the evils of Fascism, then the evils of Nazism, then evils of communism, now it is known as the evils of terrorism. Hidden behind the historical scene, however - is the big business of the same and usual evil of American capitalism. Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google

Talking to God

We are told that U.S. President George W. Bush of the United States and the Pope of the Catholic Church talks directly to God everyday. We are not told, however, what exactly God says to either of these world famous crackpots. Indeed, when people talk to God, it is called prayer. When God talks to people, it is called "psycho-ceramics." Poch Suzara


Sin is what we must do first before we can take advantage of the sacrament of forgiveness. Meantime, as Christ died for our sins, let us make His martyrdom more meaningful by the welcome of temptations to commit more sins. Poch Suzara

The Poor Filipino

No doubt, the poor Filipino needs all the break it deserves from the Church and from the
government. But the poor Filipino must also be told to stop fecundating seriously. Do it for fun. Stop producing 1.8 million babies every year for the glory of God in this already very poor only Christian country in Asia. Poch Suzara

Hate and Violence and War

Hate and violence and war are rooted in religion, not in science because in science questioning knowledge is always encouraged and indeed, welcomed. In religion there is only unquestionable revelation as inspired by superstition. If, however, religion would really like to contribute to world peace and goodwill to all men, it must begin to reveal precisely the Revealed Truths. Poch Suzara

Worthless Wisdom

There is no such thing as a worthless wisdom. Anything that’s worthless, to begin with, cannot be wisdom. Unless of course things that are worthless can serve as a horrible example of what wisdom ought not to be. Poch Suzara


The worst kind of poverty is the poverty of the mind. A mind is richer not in its simplicity, but in its multiplicity. The Cosmos did not evolved from thought. Thought evolved from the Cosmos. Poch Suzara

Philospher and Priest

The priest has always wallowed in superstition. And thanks to this horror, priests have even managed to drag nations, like the Philippines, down after them enjoying deadly illusion, if not destructive delusions. In the meantime, I love philosophers as I hate the priest. To make his point, a philospher has never killed any priest, whereas the priest, for the glory of God, has killed a great many philosophers. Poch Suzara

The Ultimate Question

The ultimate question, the one that lurks behind all other question is: “Why is there something rather than nothing? It is, indeed, a thrill to know that the main business of science is to deal with that something. It is, however, a threat to know that the main business of religion is to handle the nothing part of that something. Poch Suzara


Science is the only discipline that has reduced the mysteries of religion into nothing but trivialities. In the meantime, if God’s wisdom were beyond human understanding, it follows that there is no one, not even scientists who can claim to know anything about God’s wisdom. Happily, scientists make no such silly claims. In fact, in the scientific community, there is so much lively disagreement as the latest change needed to refine the scientiic enterprise. Poch Suzara

Nothing Is Impossible

Nothing is impossible? Perhaps it is more accurate to admit that the impossible, as far as it goes, is as yet a nothing. Poch Suzara

As a Little Boy

As a little boy at home and in school I prayed often to God to please destroy the devil once and for all. In this way, I will stop praying to God to lead me no more into temptation so that I will commit no more sins. Sadly, God never answered my prayers. Can any one blame me for being a happy and a proud atheist today? Poch Suzara

Our powerful God

Thanks to the powerful prayer to our powerful God during these past centuries the results have been powerful too. We are today the most powerful loser as a people and the most powerful failure as a nation in this only Christian country in Asia today. Golly, in this 21st century, we continue to pray daily to God to give us this day our daily bread and to lead us not into temptation. Poch Suzara

A natiion of Prayers

I ask: how can we become a nation of readers if, on the whole, we lack the basic necessities of life - food, clothing, and especially shelter? Such is the situation in the Philippines. In this the only Christian country in Asia, however, we have no cause for alarm. After all, we would rather be a nation of prayers. Poch Suzara

Non-Reading Filipino

There are, indeed, millions of Filipinos who are holders of college degrees. It is easy to tell who they are. They all have something in common. They hate to read books. In fact, ask any Filipino employed in the government or is in business for himself in the private sector, they will proudly admit that praying daily to God is much more beneficial, more reliable than reading books. Poch Suzara

Having Your Own Mind

Among the wealthiest individuals I have met are those who are in possession of most priceless treasure on this earth: a mind of their own. In this country, prove to the authority of both State and Church that you are willing to be mindless for the rest of your life and you are awarded a college diploma. Poch Suzara

The Truth as Discovered

I hate the theologians. They invent the truth. I love instead the scientists. They discover the truth. Scientists are even honest enough to admit that there are more truths to be discovered. Of course there are exceptions. The scientists together with the college professors who sell their talents and abilities for money to the Military-Industrial-University Complex in the United States of America. I have no respect for such dangerous men who makes a mockery of science. Poch Suzara

Two Great Americans

As far as I am aware, there are only two great Americans that I admire these days: Michael Moore and Ramsey Clark. Both men, in their respective fields, have not ceased telling the world that the United States government at present is headed by a homicidal maniac. If Bertrand Russell were alive today, he would, in the name of humanity, embrace these two courageous Americans with love and respect, and friendship. And to think that in the United States today, there exists a Bertrand Russell Society. Nobody, however, anywhere in the world hears of them, or from them, or even about them. Bertrand Russell himself, in his own lifetime, was consistently outspoken in the global arena against homicidal maniacs as head of government that’s keeping the human race hungry for peace on earth and starving for goodwill to all men, women, and children.

You Can Play

You can play all kinds of indoor or outdoor games: golf, basketball, football, tennis, poker, scrabble, and even play with yourself. But you must never ever play with your mind; especially if you ain't got any. Poch Suzara

The Power of the Press

The power of the press is derived from human igorance. Just exactly like the power of God. Poch suzara


Prayers and creeds are diseases of the free will. Whatever the case may be, for centuries, not health, but diseases have always supported the life of the church. Look at its churches and cathedrals. They are monuments of another diseases called human stupidity. Poch suzara

The Religious People

Religious people tell me that as an atheist I am like a blind man going inside a dark room looking black cat that is not there. I am most happy to report that at least the religious people who are even more blind than I am, have. at least, found the cat. Poch Suzara

Anti-Christ Movementt in the Land where Jesus was Born

Jesus Christ was not born in Europe. He was born in Israel that today is not a Christian, but still is a Jewish State. The Anti-Christ movement in Europe seems utterly ridiculous as compared to the anti-Christ movement in Israel which has long been quite a success. The Jews are still Jewish. During these past 2,000 years, the Jews have never been converted into being Christians or Catholics like the Filipinos have been successfully converted since the 16th century. The term anti-Christ refers to those who deny the divinity of Jesus Christ. Who deny His Gospel as truth. Who deny Jesus and his teachings. Well, if that were so, it follows that there are many more anti-Christ people existing in Israel than anywhere else in the world. Israel, the land where Jesus was born during the 1st century, never got to be converted into a Christian or into a Catholic country. It is still a Jewish State. What could be more anti-Christ than that in this already 21st century? Listen, however, to this famous Filipino columnist - Chief Justice Antonio V. Panganiban. In the Daily Inquirer today, March 2, 2014, he writes: "As I contemplate my life and move toward the sunset, I know that God has woven my many pains and gains into a magnificent tapestry showing His mystical presence. Truly, there is one constancy in my life: the presence, care and providence of our Lord Jesus Christ. To Him, I dedicate all I was, all I am, and all I will ever be." In the meantime, I say to Chief Justice Antonio V. Panganiban, Sir: you sound exactly like the rotten and corrupt politicians always installed in our government - all of them college-educated. All of them MAKA-JESUS. Indeed, in this only Christian country in Asia, there is always Jesus, sweet Jesus, who is always out to forgive all of our stupid sins as a people, and to forgive all of our stupid crimes as a nation. Historian Teodoro A. Agoncillo, in his HISTORY OF THE FILIPINO PEOPLE, wrote: "Self-deception is the worst tragedy of the Filipinos as a people." I say it again: Self-deception comes only from a sick system of education that teach millions of us Filipinos to be faithful and proud to endlessly enjoy poverty in our country; specially, poverty of the worst kind - the poverty of the mind and heart...

Again, another storm hit the Philippines. Again, more death and destruction this year than it was last year. Again, in order to remedy the situation only more prayers and so things are just getting worse. Again, we all have the courage to blame Mother Nature, but hardly have we also the courage to blame the original Creator of Mother Nature. Poch Suzara

Philippine Education

Schools, colleges and universities in the Philippines are doing its very best in the business of multiplying more educated losers and educated failures that's keeping the Filipino poor as a people and backward as a nation.Indeed, education in the Philippines has more to do with love for divinity rather than love of country for the sake of common humanity. With college degrees, we Filipinos are not only looking for a better job to come in a foreign country, but also a better life to come in the next world. Poch Suzara

Filipino Bible Scholars

Filipino bible scholars often tell me to stop reading the bible for myself. I should only attend bible study if I should wish to understand fully what's written in the bible. Are they admitting that the bible is not a public book written by inspired authors of God, but a private book written only by Jewish authors. Poch Suzara

If Only Christians

If only Christians would only take the bible seriously by reading it seriously for themselves, they might learn that raising the dead back to life was alrady a common practice in the Old Testament. Raising the dead back to life therefore was no unique miracle from Jesus in the New Testament. For my part, I could not care less about having lost my faith in Jesus. What thrilled me the most was having gained the courage of reason to begin my joyous search for the truth - the world's most noblest of profession. Poch Suzara

Faith in Jesus

Bertrand Russell wrote: "The whole idea of throwing away your life blindly as an imagined service to Christ is a form of glorifying masochism and self-abasement before power." For my part, If christ on the cross had only asked not God to forgive man, but asked instead Man to forgive God - I never would have abandoned my faith in Jesus. Moreover, I certainly still would have the highest respect and greatest admiration of Him as the Son of God. Poch Suzara

The Biggest Bigots

The most sanctimonious of biggots and lunatics in this only Christian country in Asia are the wealthy Filipino criminals - the Drug Lords, the Gambling Lords, the Jesus is Lord Movement, the evangelists, etc. They have not ceased proclaiming in public that God has been good enough to provide for them too. Poch Suzara

The Worst Kind of Poverty

We are repeatedly told that poverty in the Philippines has nothing to do with the population explosion. It has mostly to do with unequal distribution of wealth due to, if not the result of – corruption. As a matter of fact, in this country, we all suffer from poverty of the worst kind – the poverty of the mind and heart. Otherwise, if we were blessed with healthy minds, and healthy hearts - we would not find ourselves: Too poor to solve the problem of our overcrowded barrios, towns, and cities. Too poor to solve the problem of our overcrowded hospitals and health clinics and cemeteries. Too poor to solve the problem of our overcrowded schools, colleges, and universities. Too poor to solve the problem of our overcrowded buses, jeeps, trains, planes, and ships. Too poor to solve the problem of our overcrowded roads, streets, and highways. Too poor to solve the problem of our overcrowded slum and squatter areas. Yes, indeed, we are a corrupt people under a corrupt government blessed by an equally corrupt church. But what could be more corrupt than men and women irresponsible and insensible enough to bring forth unwanted children into our sick and corrupt society? Meanwhile, ask any of the nation’s children who or what or where their parents are – they do not know. Most of these children do know, however, that their parents are busy working in the baby factory. Indeed, millions upon millions of our men have far more job openings for unskilled work in the baby factory than job openings for skilled work in the business of nation building. The fact is, due to population explosion, the Philippine economic pie is getting smaller and smaller. What is getting bigger and bigger however is only the “Pie in the Sky, by and by.” Sadly, not the living, but only the dead, if at all, can partake of this non-existing pie. Is it such a complicated mathematical equation to figure out that It is more practical to feed, cloth, house, and educate children as they are planned products of planned copulation rather than babies to exist as reckless products of reckless fecundation? We are a people still mired in Third World mentality because millions of our mothers and fathers still believe that God will provide. As a matter of fact, even our high government officials have high hopes for the Philippines but not with or from science education, but only from divine intervention. In there hope for the Philippines? Yes there is if we can only learn to be more constructive intellectually, more creative culturally, and more productive scientifically - by being less destructive sexually. Poch Suzara

Atheists Love to Think

I am an atheist. This means I do not live a life of fear and even after I am dead, if at all possible, I hope to carry on my fight against the devils in heaven; or, as the case may be, my fight against the angels in hell. In the meantime, there is no such thing as an atheist turning back to God. Which God? of which religion? Indeed, we atheists have the highest respect for our thinking brains. We think the bended knees in prayers is unworthy of human dignity or self-respect. Poch Suzara

A Failure in Life

I consider myself a failure in life. After all, I am just a high-school dropout; though I am chairman of the Bertrand Russell Society in the Philippnes. However, when a college philosophy professor would ask me which book written by Bertrand Russell did my Russell quotations come from - I certainly feel like a great success; specially as I am also the chairman of the High School Dropout Association of the Philippines. Poch Suzara

In Bible Study

In Bible study, the faithful students believe only those things they cannot understand. They even call it divine wisdom. Others call it being "spiritual." For my part, I call it spiritual stupidity.In the meantime, Christians always brag about verses here and there written in the bible. Hardly, however, do they know the real nature of the whole thematic statements that run through the bible as a web of entangled absurdities, if not shocking
inconsistenceis. Poch suzara

Christ Died

Christ died on the cross on a friday but resurrected back to life on a sunday.He certainly proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that death can be a temporary joke by those gifted with supernatural power able to violate the laws of nature. Poch Suzara

Something to Think About

In their own time, our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents faithfully believed in the Second Coming of Christ. Should we as well inspire our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to faithfully believe also in the same old religious nonsense? What’s the purpose of a Second Coming if the First Coming were already a great success? Where is Jesus? How come it is taking him so long to make the trip? Perhaps, he is scared as he might be crucified all over again! Was it really important for God to inspire the authors of the bible? Isn’t it far more important to inspire the best part of any book – the readers? Was it really that important for God to have created the planet Earth so tiny that 1,000 of it can fit inside the planet Jupiter and Jupiter so tiny that 100,000 of it can fit inside the sun and the sun small as well in that 500 of our suns can fit inside a bigger sun called “star” out there? If the Christian theologians were under the inspiration of an all-knowing God, how come the theologians have not ceased explaining the unknowable in terms of the not worth knowing? Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s wife. What about thy neighbor’s husband; especially if his wife is out of town. My La Salle teachers were more eager about the neighbor’s wife leaving town. There was a time when everybody loved, worshipped, and adored God and the church ruled. The historians refer to it as the Dark Ages. What’s so terrible about being an atheist? Like you and everyone else, I too was born an atheist. Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; give him religion and he will starve to death while praying for a fish. Christ died for our sins. Go ahead – dare to make his martyrdom meaningless by not committing more sins. A man of faith is life a drunkard who clings to a lamppost for support; not illumination. Immortality is the condition of a dead man who does not know that he is dead. Why should we allow God to tell us how to raise our children, who had drowned his own? What kind of an all-knowing and all-powerful God is that who creates faulty humans, and then blames them for his careless mistakes? The believers who believes that the unbeliever of the faith will go to hell after death have the brain of a pig, the heart of a snake, and the conscience of a crocodile. I was expelled out of La Salle high school because since grade school, I consistently refused to believe in anything sacred especially in the teachings I could not fathom nor understand. Indeed, I was thrown out of school for believing precisely that the most priceless treasure anyone can possess in this world is not a stupid soul, but an open heart and an intelligent human mind.

Sex, the Bible, and Bertrand Russell

Motherhood is an offense against God, if the baby is a girl. Lev. 12: 1-5 Eunuchs and virgins are superior to father and mothers, according to the New Testament. Jesus: “There be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. Matt. 19:10-12 The doctrine of the Virgin Birth brands every natural mother as impure. Though Mary got pregnant by God while she was still married to Joseph. The so-called Word of God says ( Paul speaking, 1 Cor. 7:1 ): “It is good for a man not to touch a women.” So birth control or family planning is not a sin after all. 1 Cor. 7 is a course dissertation on marriage. Jesus and Paul preached asceticism – renunciation of the world and its pleasures for a problematical hereafter. They suffered from the failure of guts. The refused to face the realities of life. There are in heaven 144,000 virgin men whom woman has never “defiled.” Rev. 14:1-4 sex is insane. Probably written by an impotent saint. Jesus preached no divorce. Mark 10:2-12 and Luke 16:18. This anti-sociaL teaching has been repudiated by every American state, except the most backward of nations like the Philippines. All the men of the Old Testament were polygamists, and Christ and Paul, the central figures of the New Testament, were celibates, and condemned marriage by both precept and example. Modern prophylaxis and conception control information have revolutionized sex relations, robbing them of terror and fear. The tribal taboos embedded in the bible may be safely abandoned. Let’s be guided by reason rather than by faith or tradition. Genesis 2:16: “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children.” When a Christian hears a women screaming with pain in childbirth, he reflects that God is getting even with Eve for eating an apple. For my part, I would take any day or night the sexual views of Bertrand Russell as more sane and healthy. Russell saw thru the cruel state of affairs as regards the sexual relationship between men and women: In his MARRIAGE AND MORALS, Russell wrote: “The doctrine that there is something sinful about sex is one which has done untold harm to individual character – a harm beginning in early childhood and continuing throughout life. By keeping sex love in a prison, conventional morality has done much to imprison all other forms of friendly feelings, and to make men less generous, less kindly, more assertive and more cruel. Whatever sexual ethics may come to be ultimately accepted must be free from superstition and must have recognizable and demonstrable grounds in its favor.” Poch Suzara

Sick Kind of Love From Jesus For Filipinos as the Sick Man of Asia

Here’s love, peace on earth, and goodwill to all men, women, and children from Jesus Christ – the Prince of Peace – the God of Love – the loving Savior of Mankind, specially of Filipinos as the Sick Man of Asia: Matt. 8:21-22 “And another of His disciple said unto Him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury the dead. Matt. 10:34-35 “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth. I came not to send peace, but a sword,” “For I am come to set a
Man at variance against his father, and daughter against her mother.” Matt. 19:29 “And everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” Mark 10:29-30 “There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s. But he shall receive a hundredfold now in time… with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.” Mark 13:12 “Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.” Luke 12:51-53 :Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division. For from henceforth there shall be five to one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father, and the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother…” Luke 14:26 “ If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, and yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:33 “So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not that all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 19:27 “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them for me.” St John 12:25-25 “He that loveth his life shall lose it; he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal; . . . If any man serve me, him will my father honor.” No wonder Jesus got crucified on the cross by his own brothers and sisters created in His own image and likeness. But then again, who was crucified on the cross? If it was God, why would God cry out” “My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?” If it was a man on the cross, what right had he to cry out: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Luke 22:34. Again, Jesus in the bible, prays to: “God, the Father.” Yet, Father and Son and the Holy Spirit are one and the same person according to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. In fact, Jesus admitted that “I and my father are one.” John 10:30. If Jesus could pray to Himself, wasn’t it rather silly that as a God Himself, he could not answer his own prayer? This was 2,000 years ago. Today in the 21st century, I am told that an ANTI-CHRIST movement is on the rise in Europe. But Christ was not born in Europe, he was born in Israel that today is not a Christian, but a Jewish State. How come the Anti-Christ movement in Israel, the land where Christ was born, has been quite a success? Poch Suzara
