Family Planning Bill 3773

It is not surprising that there are many who find nothing but the devil’s work in the Family Planning Bill 3773. These are the same fellow-Filipinos who remain obedient to God’s command, especially the 4th: - Honor thy mother and father. Even if millions of the nation’s children exist filthy poor and malnourished in the streets of our major cities.
As if strength of high moral character or even a high I.Q. is a requirement to bring forth children into this world. Consider the physical position that a man and a woman must assume in order to multiply and replenish the earth: It has got to be one of the most contorted positions mindlessly designed by would-be mothers and fathers.
Honor is not something freely given. It is deserved as it is earned with dignity.
In the meantime, it is not a crime in the Philippines to let children live off garbage in the streets of our sick society. But if these poor children somehow survive and grow to up to be rebellious citizens embracing anti-democratic or even anti-religious values, it is not a crime to have them killed or salvaged by the military as that is “war” in defense of freedom and democracy.
As a people, we have yet to get beyond the so-called sanctity of life, and begin to understand and appreciate the quality of human life in the Philippines.
Forget the promises of those allies in the sky. Let’s start paying attention to needs of humanity. Where is our sense for common human decency? Must we really be all that perpetually serious promoting the success of our social insanity? Poch Suzara

The five senses

The five senses – feeling, seeing, tasting, smelling, and hearing - basic in man as taught to us in school during our formative childhood years have turned out to be not scientific at all. There are more.
Notice how not every one has a sense of rhythm or a sense of melody or a sense of harmony to become a musician; or possessed with a sense of power like most of the corrupt politicians in government? Or the sense of clarity in a philosophical pursuit. Or the sense of symmetry on a dance floor? Notice as well one’s sense of intellectual balance to become not a fanatic. Scientists discovered these additional senses in man. The original five senses were purely the conclusion of the obsolete theology based upon the virtues of religious mediocrity and not based upon the pursuit of veracity. Poch Suzara

Bertrand Russell

Bertrand Russell considered religion as a disease born of fear and a source of untold misery to the human race.
To think that the atheists in the United States today are frightened by the theists. So much so that American Atheists no longer want to identify themselves as atheists, but as “rational.” They do not want to hurt the feelings of the superstitious leaders, specially those in charge of the US government. What’s happened to America? Is it still the land of the free and the home of the brave? Poch Suzara

The Failure of our Values

If what is happening in our sick society were due to the will of divinity, it follows that as the Sick Man of Asia, we must be just as sick as the angels in heaven we all love; and, we are also just as sick as the demons in hell we all fear. Religion, indeed, is a disease born of fear and ignorance and has certainly been the main cause of the failure of values generating the success of political stupidity, cultural depravity, and social insanity in the Philippines. Poch Suzara

My Greatest Achievement in Life

I was able to engineer my own expulsion out of high school. It paved the way clear for me to seek not only the answers to my own questions, but precisely to formulate for myself better kinds of questions that my mediocre teachers in school ignored, if not disparaged, or even, at times, ridiculed. Imagine the power of education not as a matter of learning the right answer to stupid questions but simply to learn as a lifetime adventure - how to always ask intelligent questions! Poch Suzara

Filipino Progress

Filipino progress can only be born of questions and doubts. Barren of questions and other inquiries the TREE OF FILIPINO PROGRESS will never grow.
In this only Christian country in Asia, we are, indeed, a grace in the rat-race for salvation. We should be more of a grace in the race for civilization. Poch Suzara


Curiosity killed the cat. At least, before the animal died, it had a sense of curiosity. Most humans are killed, especially in war, not to satisfy their sense of curiosity, but to die in battle to promote political stupidity, if not to generate religious insanity. Poch Suzara

A Simple Truth

If God never listens to the Pope’s prayer to deal with the existence of the devil, why should God listen to your silly prayers to deal with existence of a Poch Suzara?

I am Told

I am told to fear not the future because God is already there. But if God has not been here in the present nor there in the past, why should God be anywhere in the future? To play more Hide and Seek games? Poch Suzara

How to Read

I loved the Christian Brothers at De la Salle University. They taught me HOW to read. Then I hated them. They dictated to me WHAT to read. And to think that these teachers were the same religious crackpots who also frightened me to believe that God gifted man with a free will. Poch Suzara

According to Christian Beliefs

According to Christian belief humans are depraved and corrupt. If this were true, why would God have a depraved human for a Mother and have a corrupt human for a Son? But then again, If Jesus and Mary were such exceptionally decent people, why didn’t God create them in the beginning? Why create a depraved Adam and a corrupt Eve to turn out guilty of the original sin? And to think that both Adam and Eve were never taught of the Lord’s Prayer: “Give us this day our daily bread, and lead us not into temptation.” Poch Suzara

I love Atheism

Atheism is not the rejection of natural morality. It is the rejection of supernatural morality as concocted by silly deviltry begat by theology. Poch Suzara

If God does not Exists

If it were proved that God does not exist – would it be still necessary to be an atheist? Oh yes, it would still be necessary to be an atheist. Look how the Christians and the Muslims have been cutting each other’s throats? Only because one tells the other: Thou shalt have no other gods before me! If we were all atheists – there will be peace on earth and goodwill to all men. Atheists do not kill other atheists to prove to each other that God does not exist. In fact, in all of man's
history, there never was a war declared by the atheists against the theists. It was always the other way round - killing atheists by the theists always pleased the good God. What a bunch of barbaric morons!
Poch Suzara

Death In Religious War

In a religious war, dead Christians is God’s plan to populate Christians in Heaven; and, dead Muslims is Allah’s plan to populate Muslims in Paradise.
As an atheist, I hope both God and Allah will grow up sooner and learn to stop playing deadly games against each other. Both supernatural beings are achieving nothing lively or even anything healthy. It is just plain terrestrial insanity. Poch Suzara

Bertrand Russell

A great many Christians believed Bertrand Russell was an evil man devoid of gratitude with God who created him.
Indeed, Bertrand Russell did not waste his life having faith in mediocrity or praying daily to a divinity. He had no taste for theology as he was a great man of logic, mathematics, and philosophy.
Russell devoted 70 years of his life in the search of the truth. He was honest and frank to admit his failure in not having found the truth. He said others might find if we can all continue to search for the truth. As for the rest of his life, since he died at the age of 98, he devoted much of his days struggling for world peace. Russell hated the nuclear bomb. He organized the “ban the bomb” international movement. He was always on the side of humanity. He was never prepared to meet universal death to prove the stupidity behind global insanity. Poch Suzara

Mental Torture

The most painful kind of mental torture a thoughtless man can experience in life is to think that he could himself do a little thinking. Poch Suzara

The Irony of a Stupid Man

The irony of a stupid man is that he actually has the intelligent impression that everybody else is just as stupid as he is. Poch Suzara


“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void: and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. “
I ask: where was the inspired author located while he was actually reporting creation then going on? Did he actually see or hear God said, Let there be Light? Poch Suzara


A cathedral is grand work of art with great building materials erected with engineering skills. But isn’t God already everywhere on this planet and already present in the billions upon billions of galaxies. Why would the Supreme Being need
a House of God established on this tiny atom called earth? Isn't a cathedral a monument to human stupidity? Poch Suzara


Theology has been in a bankrupt state of affairs during the last many decades that the most the theologians can do these days is to brag that it was they were the first who discovered the power of science. What a pathetic and a dishonest group of liars these theologians are! Ever since the birth of science, the theologians have not ceased envying, hating, fighting, opposing, threatening, imprisoning, torturing, burning at the stake, hanging, and executing men of science. In the Philippines, our own national hero - Jose Rizal was indeed executed by the Spanish theologians.
Bertrand Russell wrote it simply: “Science, while it diminishes our cosmic pretensions, enormously increases our terrestrial comfort. This is why, in spite of the hs of the theologians, science has on the whole been tolerated.” Poch Suzara


It is the greatest evil that continues to keep our world in the dark. Religion has crippled the minds of children, distorted the minds of men, and twisted the hearts of women. No doubt, religion teaches one to be good; unfortunately, to be good for nothing. Look where faith has taken the human race since God knows when? In this 21st century, the majority of people still need to have faith in a lot superstition nonsense in order to feel that life has meaning. Poch Suzara

The new name is "Rational"says Marshall Brain

The new name is "Rational" says Marshall Brain:

It is time for us to recognize as a society that there is no such thing as an atheist. Let me help you understand why this is the case.

Do you believe in Leprechauns? Probably not, because Leprechauns are imaginary. Yes, there are lots of books, movies and fairy tales dealing with Leprechauns. People talk about Leprechauns all the time. Leprechauns even have a popular brand of breakfast cereal. But that does not mean that Leprechauns exist.

We know that Leprechauns are imaginary. Why? Because there is noevidence for their existence. Despite all the publicity Leprechauns get, normal people dismiss storybook creatures like Leprechauns as myths, and rightly so.

If you do not believe in Leprechauns, what are you? Are you an aleprechaunist? Of course not. You are normal. People who do not believe in Leprechauns are completely normal.The new name is "Rational"

In just the same way that we don't use the word aleprechaunist to describe the people who do not believe in Leprechauns, we should not need the word atheist. We should be able to say, "I am a normal person" and be done with it.

The problem is that, in America today, if you say, "I am a normal person," what everyone assumes is that you mean, "I am a Christian." Currently we are a minority, and as long as we are a minority we need a name.

It is time to choose a new name for those of us who know that all human gods are imaginary. There are two good reasons for picking a new name. First, the word atheist is overloaded with extraneous meaning right now, most of it negative. Second, there is no reason to define ourselves as the opposite of theists.

My response:

This is about more frightened childish nonsense. Leprechauns hold no power over schools, colleges, universities, including governments, especially the US government today. Leprechauns hold no power over the minds of men and the hearts of women as the belief in A SUPERNATURAL BEING does. We atheist must fight evil no matter how religious evil is. Atheists should stop hiding inside the rational closet. Come and out and fight the evil that is perpetually keeping our world in hate and in war - this belief in the existence of a good God. We atheists must never be ruled by the theists. To begin with, we must never shy away from the word ATHEIST. For my part, I thank God I am an ATHEIST. Poch Suzara

Gearing Towards Economic Recovery

In his piece published in the Philippine Star today, Vicente G. Roxas wrote: “Efforts should be geared towards the satisfactory solution of the current economic crisis through an increase in productive capacity and productivity which will generate our overall production in the three sectors: the Agro-industry, the Agro-Business and Technical Vocational Education and Training Program. To attain the objective, the following policy guidelines or measures may prove helpful: “Love yourself and country next to God. It is quite unfortunate that a good number of our fellow countrymen do not put this into practice. Apparently, what they do believe is love GOD next to yourself or to your country, obviously for self-aggrandizement.”
I ask Mr. Roxas: have you heard of Filipinos who got filthy rich for believing that God is bad? And yet, millions upon millions of Filipinos are filthy poor for believing that God is good! Perhaps, as an expert economist, Mr. Roxas can further expound why our stupid economy should have any connection with our stupid theology? Poch Suzara

Top Filipino Economists

Top Filipino economists are still insisting, as a matter of fantasy, that the biggest problem confronting the nation today is how to pay our external old debt of $65 billion dollars.
These economists are not even ashamed of themselves. As a matter of reality, our biggest problem is how to catch and put in jail those corrupt officials in government that made such loans not to benefit the nation, but to deposit into their personal bank accounts such foreign loans. Well, more loans are needed for the nation and, as we are acquiring more loans, how come the nation is getting poorer and sinking deeper into the economic quagmire?
As a matter of reality, however,, the biggest problem of the nation is the population explosion. Two million babies are born every year in the Philippines. Whatever economic productivity, if any, we may achieve, it will be just eaten up by more mouths to feed. Thus, instead of the higher, only the lower standard of living.
The trouble with our God-fearing, college-educated and faith-soaked economists is that they feel so blessed by God. Specially when they see Filipinos smiling and proud of their lower standard of thinking. As if with our poverty as a people and bankruptcy as a nation God will continue to bless this Pearl of the Orient Seas – the only Christian country in Asia.
It is all about the same stupid economy in cahoots with stupid theology year in and year out: the religious insanity ever playing the major role to keep up with the economic insanity of this God-forsaken country. After all, according to our Christian values and beliefs, the more we suffer, the more sacrifices we make for the Lord, the chances are better for the Philippnes to remain forever famous as the only Christian country in Asia.

A Thinking Filipino

For a great many years, I prayed daily on my bended knees but received no response. Then I started to think daily with my head.
It got me into more responsible thinking. As a grown-up man, I no longer bother with childish prayers. I gave up trying to change the mind of God. God, after all, is immutable. Poch Suzara


Religions in general and Christianity in particular have always been an impediment to our growth as a people and to our development as a nation. Consider faith: how it has crippled the Filipino mind. Faith has subverted our natural ability to question, to learn, to discover, and indeed even to love one another and to love our country. In fact, due to faith, we have never ceased praying to Mary, the Mother of God, to pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, amen. For my part, I think it's unfair that in the eyes of Mary, the mother of God, she has not ceased looking at Filipinos as having no purpose in life other than just be sinners in the Philippines. Poch Suzara

The Immortal Soul

God in heaven will judge the immortal human soul that all this time apparently could see, hear, taste, feel, and smell. But if that were the case, why would the immortal soul need a mortal human body on earth to begin with? More to the point: if God created heaven for happiness and created earth for unhappiness, why bother to create earth for unhappiness to begin with? Poch Suzara

Hereafter and Herebefore

I never worry about the hereafter because I never worry about the herebefore. I do not recall existing before I was born. If I never existed before birth, why should I worry about not existing after death? Immortality of my personality is neither a feasibility nor a possibility. It is, in fact, a ridiculosity. Poch Suzara

Free Will

If God gifted man with a Free Will, why would his first command be – Thou Shalt have no other gods before me? Who are those other gods? Where did they come from? Who created them? Were they not gifted with Free Will as well? As the song goes . . . what's going on? Poch Suzara

Dangerous to Society

“It is not disbelief that is dangerous to our society; it is belief.” George Bernard Shaw. This is right on target. May I, however, add: especially if we respect such beliefs that are baseless, aimless, rudderless, reckless, and thoughtless. Poch Suzara

As An Atheist

As an atheist, I do not retreat in the face of threats or punishments dispensed by theocratic terrorists. They are only more interested in protecting their own power and glory indulging in their vanity. Theocratic terrorists do not care to promote humanitarian ideals for the happiness of the human community in the here and the there nor in the hear and the now. Poch Suzara

Jesus and Education

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. Matt. 18:2-3 It is obvious that Jesus did not give a hoot about the value education.
For my part, I have no wish to go to heaven. I do not wish to enjoy happiness in the company of little children happy with immaturity for the rest of eternity.
On this earth, however, I would rather listen to Bertrand Russell: Most children wish to know until they go to school; in many cases it is bad teaching that make them stupid and uninquiring.
In the meantime, the bible totally contradicts Jesus: “My friends, stop thinking like children. Think like mature people.”
( 1 Corinthians 14:19 ). Poch Suzara

Reality and Fantasy

As an atheist, by merely being in touch with reality, I appear like a lost damned soul in the eyes of my God-fearing friends and relatives, specially as they are in closed touch daily with fantasy. Poch Suzara

All Religions

All religions of the world came from only one source:- God; unfortunately, God does not exist. Otherwise, if there is a God, there would only be one intelligent religion. There would be no need for the existence of many stupid religions that’s keeping our world wracked in mutual hatred. Poch Suzara

Honor Mother and Father

The 4th commandment: honor thy mother and father. I ask: how exactly could a son or a daughter obey this commandment of God if his or her father were a politician and mother is just one of the many wives of the politician who has also sired some other 27 illegitimate step-brothers and step-sisters? Oh yes, God’s 4th commandment - Honor thy Father and Mother- is a sick and an insane commandment. On the contrary, it is mothers and fathers who should love and honor each other as decent parents. In this way, no millions of street children need live like sick animals in the sick streets in our poor country – the only Christian country in Asia since 500 years ago. - Poch Suzara Google# Twitter# Facebook#

Yes, I am a Pinoy

Indeed, I am proud to be a Pinoy. I am happy to be a citizen of the Philippines. I am also proud to have Spanish, American, and Filipino blood in me.
The shame, however, is that we Pinoys continue to love, worship, and adore anything foreign specially a foreign God called Jesus who was never a Filipino as he was born in the land of Israel that today is not even a Christian country, but a Jewish State.
We Pinoys should have our own local God. May I suggest the thinkers and philosophers amongst Filipinos? How about Jose Rizal – our national hero – why don’t we start studying seriously and learn from this courageous Filipino thinker who said that it is better to be truthful to each other than continue spreading mediocre, if not sanctimonious, - lies about ourselves. Indeed, to love our country and not to love that pie in the sky by and by.
It is time we Pinoys stop the business of easy believing; instead, we should begin to appreciate hard and serious thinking. We should stop having faith in a lot of sacred nonsense, and begin instead to think for ourselves. It is not the responsibility of foreigners to think for Filipinos or to think for the Philippines.

We Filipinos

We Filipinos must extricate ourselves up and out of our ancient superstition that’s only giving us more faith in sacred illusions, if not some other biblical delusions. Such evils need not be placed at the foundation of our essential beliefs and other social values.
That there is power in prayer has got to be among the first sacred concept that must be thrown out the window. Otherwise, in the centuries to come, if we continue to believe in the power of prayer, we Filipinos will just continue to accomplish the same nothing as a people, and we will just continue to achieve the same nothing as a nation. Indeed, we will just continue to oppose each other not for the sake of developing or accomplishing something, but only for the purpose of recycling to death the same nothing. Poch Suzara

Unsolved Mysteries of the Universe

In recognizing the unsolved mysteries of the universe, the scientist does not kneel down to supernatural explanations. He stands up to the natural explanations, if any. Otherwise, he suspends his judgment and seeks not obscurity, but evidence for the sake of clarity. In his “Brief History of Time,” Stephen Hawking wrote: “Ever since the dawn of civilization, people have not been content to see events unconnected and inexplicable. They have craved an understanding of the underlying order in the world. Today, we still yearn to know why we are here and where we came from. Humanity’s deepest desire for knowledge is justification enough for our continuing quest. And our goal is nothing less than a complete description of the universe we live in.” In the same book, Hawking also wrote: “So long as the universe had a beginning, we could suppose it had a creator. But if the universe is really completely self-contained, having no boundary or edge, it would have neither beginning nor an end: it would simply be. What place, then, for a creator? Poch Suzara

The Wealth of the Catholic Church

The wealth of the Catholic Church in the Philippines comes mostly from its priests who can determine who will go to heaven or who will go to hell. If a Filipino died in a state of mortal sin, he will go to hell. If he died after the priest gives him extreme unction, he will go to heaven. Before reaching heaven, however, he must spend years suffering pain in Purgatory. The situation in Purgatory can be diminished considerably by indulgences which is money paid to the priest for saying mass for the souls of the dead. Holy Mass can be purchased wholesale or retail. There are discounts offered and therefore big saving to be made buying it wholesale. Billions of pesos that are then remitted each and every month to the Vatican State. Poch Suzara

Jesus – The Man

“Concerning his son Jesus Christ our Lord, which is made of the seed of David according to the flesh” – Romans 1:3 – meaning Joseph was his father; moreover, “God sent forth his Son, made of a woman,” – Galatian 4:4 – meaning Jesus was human with no reference whatsoever to the miracle of a divine virgin birth. And to think that this is the same Jesus who proclaimed that: I am the way, the truth, and the life: No man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6. Was Jesus really a miracle worker? Did he perform major or just minor miracles. Take his resurrection, a minor miracle. It could have been a major event had he not allow others to get him crucified dead on the cross. Remember, Jesus could even walk on water or raised back to life the dead. Take again, the Second Coming – a minor miracle. If His mission on earth were a major miracle during the First Coming, what need is there for a Second Coming? And to think this promise was made some 2,000 years ago and it has yet to be delivered.

MELCHISEDEC, King of Salem

“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. See also Genesis 14:18 Where is Melchisedec? How come no one has met or seen this fellow? Where on earth is he hiding? Why is he unwilling to share his fantastic experience in life with the rest of mankind? I, for one, would like to see Melchisedec reveal to us the Revealed Truth as written in the bible. Poch Suzara

My Former Classmates

My former classmates at De La Salle University laugh at me because I read a lot. I laugh because they only pray a lot. I read a lot to be rich in spirit. My former classmates pray a lot to be poor in spirit. In school, we have been taught to believe that to be poor in spirit is something of a grace from God.

Poverty of the mind is the worst kind of poverty. The greatest of wealth can only come from mental health. To be poor in spirit obviously means enjoying lies and deception and other forms of superstition. For my part, I enjoy searching for the truth. In the meantime, the success of social insanity in the Philippines is the exact reflection of what it means to be proud of one's so-called "education." Poch Suzara


The last two world wars were indeed fought by and among Christian nations: in the first, between England, France and the United States on one side, and Germany on the other. In the second, between Germany, Italy and (the only non-Christian) Japan on the other side and England, France, the United States and several other European countries on the other side. Yes, in these two world wars, the contending sides surely did pray to God for victory. The victorious then thanked God for listening to their prayers. The counties defeated prayed to God for vengeance.

“A good test of character: when we do wrong, who do we blame? Philippine Star, December 10, 2005.
Speaking for myself, I blame entirely the system of education. In school at De La Salle University, after having our minds twisted with fear and our hearts distorted with more fear, we were then taught to believe that God is always available at any time to forgive our sins and our crimes. As long as we do not miss going to confession regularly and not miss sunday Mass consistently where we can donate to the priesthood industry in the name of charity. Poch Suzara

Listen to the words of a scientist, a chemist, physicist, crystallographer, molecular biologist, and medical researcher, and atheist – the famous Linus Pauling: I had made many discoveries in chemistry and other fields of science and had even made some contributions to medicine, although it was not clear that these contributions would have much effect in decreasing the amount of suffering caused by disease. Now, I thought, I have learned about something that can decrease somewhat the amount of suffering for tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of people, something that had been noticed by other scientists and by some physicians but for some reason had been ignored.

It is Incredible

It is incredible how the birth anniversary of Christ is highly celebrated in the Philippines, but not celebrated in Israel – the place where Christ was born.
It is more incredible, however, to see how the birth of our national hero Rizal not as equally celebrated in the Philippines – the place where Rizal was born. This is the same Rizal who was executed by the Catholic friars because he wrote books on the evils of the Church teaching the Filipino to love not the Philippines, neither the things that are in the Philippines. If the Filipino love the Philippines, the love of God is not with him. ( See John 2:15 ) Poch Suzara


The word religion comes from the Latin, religare, which means “to tie back, to fasten or to bind.” Another word for religion is theism which holds that there is a super-thing existing outside of nature, that it proves itself by miracles – which is the breakthrough of natural laws, that this super-thing has agents which communicates its wishes to people, that there is communication with the super-thing and it rewards the believers and punishes the unbelievers. Atheism, however, embraces none of this superstitious nonsense. There is nothing of religion that is associated with Atheism. We have no dogmas, no rituals, no gods, no priests, no worship, no prayer, no holy places, no churches, temples, no synagogues, and no miracles. Any dictionary or encyclopedia will tell you that religion is a system of attitudes, practices, rites, ceremonies and beliefs by means of which individuals or the community put themselves in relation to a god or to a supernatural world, and from which the religious person derives a set of values by which to judge events in the natural world. As an atheist, I embrace not only the freedom of religion; but I embrace even more - the freedom FROM religion. As an atheist, I kneel to no one. In this connection, I do not care to identify myself as an agnostic, a rationalist, ethical culturist, humanist, freethinker, objectivist, secularist, iconoclast, and whatever other gutless nomenclature you can find in the dictionary. I am atheist. Period. My dear reader, If you find that word hard to accept, then that is your positive problem; not mine. In the ultimate analysis, I say what we need in life is not a religion, but a philosophy – where faith is replaced with reason, where holy paralysis is replaced with lively analysis, where our useful book is the book called the world right here in front of us, and a sick written by sick authors of a sick God who came to visit earth thousands of years ago.

The trouble with religion is that it makes us believe in the existence of a supernatural papa who will readily forgive us of our sins and crimes. Who will also give us strength to pray daily to him to give us this day our daily bread, and indeed, to lead us not into temptation. More devastating, however, religion makes us believe that such a supernatural papa created us in his own image and likeness. Poch Suzara

Psychics Vs Psychotics

Psychics claim they can talk to the dead. Psychotics claim God can talk to them. Indeed, the psychics and the psychotics are able to talk to each other but only about a lot of childish nonsense. As for me, please excuse me. I would rather hold on to my self-respect and dignity as a skeptic. Poch Suzara

The Good versus the Bad life

“The good life,” wrote Bertrand Russell, “is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.” Does it not follow that the bad life is one inspired by hate and war and fear and ignorance? Such evils have always been behind the great religions that have contributed much to what is bad in this world. In the future, there is a big chance, that is, if we do not wake up soon enough, the great religions armed with nuclear weapons will reduce the planet earth into a lunar landscape. . . We atheists should work harder to convince the whole of mankind to start looking at atheism as the best and only road toward world peace and tranquility; indeed toward our sense of common humanity globally.

Modern Education

Modern education has to do with pupils learning from the teacher, but more so, it is about the teacher learning from his pupils. Academic freedom means opportunity to develop one’s talents and abilities. This is where the teacher plays an important role – exploring or discovering the talents and abilities of his pupils as great gifts from nature. Modern education does not mean recruiting the young to become members of this or that political party or to become members of this or that church or synagogue or temple or mosque. That is not modern education. That is harmful indoctrination. Poch Suzara

Too Complex

We can see the micro universe better and brighter with a microscope, and we can see the macro universe better and brighter with a telescope. It is sad, however, to meet college-educated men and women insisting that they see better and brighter both the world in the small and the world in the large with blessed by God horoscope.

One in three Filipinos have hopes of moving to another country. That’s about 29 million Filipinos. At one million Filipinos migrating per year, it would take 29 years to move them all out. Of course, after 29 years, at 2.3 per cent growth per year, our population then will have reached more than 150 million Filipinos.
What can be expected of ourselves as a people who, during childhood days at home, we were taught to believe that God will provide? And in school, we were taught to believe not in the power of reason and science, but only to have faith in the power of prayer as among the best way to solve real problems and troubles in life?
In this 21st century, even our high officials in government have high hopes that the best answer to all of our problems is not via efficient and honest government, but only by searching for the revealed truths in the Old or the New Testament.
I remember my grandfather asking: “Where is the government of the Filipino, by the Filipino, and for the Filipino?” to think this was some 50 years ago. Today, as a grandfather myself, I find asking: What government?” Poch Suzara
