Decline and Fall of Christianity

The Christian churches today are tearing each other apart externally. I am most elated to see these churches not only retreating, but also collapsing internally. It is about time to challenge its veracity historically.
For my part, after I am long dead and gone, I would like to be remembered as an individual who was primarily responsible for the death and burial of Christianity in the Philippines. I said it before and I say it again: - enough is enough. It is time to develop the most priceless treasures we all possess on this earth – our human mind and human heart. We need such treasures so that we can develop as well another precious thing on this earth - our own country for the sake of the nation’s children to grow up healthy, wealthy, and wise no longer having faith in a lot of priestly hogwash.
It is time to discard the promises of Christianity; for, as we search for the truth, we will discover that even the existence of God has all been based on religious threats concocted by the priesthood industry as a profit generating enterprise to benefit no one but themselves. Poch Suzara

Human Lifetime

Human lifetime is but a fraction of a millimeter long, a bittersweet instant in eternity, a wink of an eye, a flash in the pan, a split of a second long. Even our planet earth is so tiny in that a million planets the size of earth can fit inside the sun.
To think that the Son of the God Jesus during ancient times was born on this piece of dust called earth. In order to save mankind from sin he allowed himself to be crucified on the cross by men created too in the image and likeness of his own Father. And this is the same crucified Jesus who cried out from the cross: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do!" Poch Suzara

The Politicians

The bible says: “If you live after the flesh, you shall die.” ( Rom 8:13). “Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexuals offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. ( 1 Cor. 6:9-10 ).
One thing glaringly obvious written in the bible: it knew exactly what it was writing about when it came to the life style of most politicians installed in the United States government with headquarters no longer at the Oval but in the Oral Office! Poch Suzara

US Economy

The US economy gets on high gear especially for the Industrial-Military-University Complex for as long as the US government prepares to go to war. War is big business globally. Especially under the pretext of installing freedom and democracy in foreign countries. But there has yet to be the same economic windfall if the US government were to install freedom and democracy to benefit the native American Indians, the Black Americans, and the homeless and jobless – the victims of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the United States of America. Poch Suzara

Life on Earth

Life on earth may be expensive, but it includes a free ride for everybody while the earth spins on its axis at 1,037 miles per hour. It includes another free ride as the earth orbits annually 595,000,000 miles around the sun at 66,000 miles per hour. And yet another free ride as the earth follows the sun going around the galaxy 250,000,000,000 miles at 400,000 miles per hour. Despite the astronomical free rides, only the esoteric few love the spaceship earth. The rest have been indoctrinated to ignore it or even to hate it for heaven’s sake. Poch Suzara

Illegitimate Jesus

The father of Jesus never legally married his mother Mary. Jesus therefore was an illegitimate Son. What a rotten way to give birth to family values. Nevertheless, can any one blame Jesus for preaching: "If any man come to me and hate not his father and mother, brothers and sisters, and ye his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. See Matthew 10:34-37 and Luke 14:26. Poch Suzara


The USA may produce a filthy-rich criminals like Donald Trump worth in the billions of dollars. The same USA, however, can also produce millions upon millions of American citizens who are not only homeless, not only jobless, not only hopeless and thoughtless, but also landless. And to think that we millions of poor and sick Americans love to sing with pride “God Bless America - land of the free and the home of the brave." Poch Suzara

Japanese Proverb

“Baka ni tsukeru kusuri wa nai”- ‘There is no medicine that cures stupidity.”
But the worship of divinity is a greater evil than stupidity. Why not therefore find the cure not for stupidity, but the cure for divinity? Please do not misunderstand me. I have the greatest respect for Japan as a nation and the greatest admiration for the Japanese as a people. They do have another slogan which is more powerful as well as enviable: "A world without kindness is grim; a world without sweat is decadent." Often times, I have wondered if Japan had won the Second World War in the pacific, the Philippines would have been a better place than it has been. For one thing, Christianity would have died out as the Japanese culture, values and beliefs would have eradicated in the Filipino psychology that destructive faith in a God who will provide.Poch Suzara


I discovered through self-study how Christianity has not been based on values that promote health or wealth; or, for that matter, that promotes the welfare of humanity. I then began to look deep at the social and political and economic conditions of Filipinos dominated from infancy to senility to have faith in sacred lies and to believe in other biblical falsehoods?
What a thrill it was for me to have gradually discovered the beauties of atheism. How, in fact, atheism promotes the good life – one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. To begin with, we atheists have no God to love up there as an excuse to hate one another down here. Poch Suzara

Save Democracy

If we Filipinos were interested to save our democracy, the first thing we must do is to shut down and abolish all of our schools, colleges, and universities. Especially those owned and controlled by the Catholic Church and Iglesia Ni Cristo. The greatest enemy of democracy has always been and still is Christianity – the religion that makes a mockery of liberty by encouraging more faith only in divinity.
Consider our college-educated men and women of this country, including college professors: - none are qualified to be decent leaders to manage a decent government for the creation of a decent society to enhance throughout the land common human decency! In fact, our schools, colleges, and universities are places where minds are twisted and hearts are distorted to feel more at home with the fantastic promises of Christianity; and, at the same time, to feel terrorized when facing the realistic works needed to nourish freedom and to cherish democracy in our country. Poch Suzara


To love my mother and father, brothers and sisters, friends and other relatives, or even to love my country was hardly an issue at the foundation of my education at De la Salle University. In fact, I was taught to love Jesus first and foremost. However, since Jesus was never around to reciprocate love and affection for him, I learned in the end to love and to respect only his priests and nuns, bishops, cardinals, and his pope. As I was just one of the millions of such students, I imagined the impact of such teachings on the Filipino mind as a people, and on the Filipino heart as a nation.
My dear reader, if you have some other logical explanation as to why we Filipinos are impoverished spiritually, bankrupt morally, childish emotionally, insane socially, and frightened biblically; in brief, why, in this 21st century, we are the Sick Man of Asia, I would be most anxious to learn from you. Poch Suzara

Guardians of Christianity

For those who believe, no explanation is needed. For those who do not believe, no explanation is possible. In other words, it does not matter what you believe as long as you believe. Tertullian, the great Christian theologian, once admitted: “It is true because it is absurd. I believe it because it is impossible.” And to think that this famous dumbstruck theologian was once highly feared, respected and admired as one of the greatest spiritual guardians of Christianity! In the meantime, it is easy to believe. It is hard to think. That is why, in our sick society, there are far more stupid believers than there are intelligent thinkers. Poch Suzara

What Does It Profit

What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but suffers in the end the lost of his soul in the next world? I asked it before, I ask it again: What does it profit a man if he wins eternal salvation in heaven but leaves this world a worst place than he found it? Obviously, such a man had little reason for having lived. Indeed, such a man saw neither the beauty nor the power or even the worth in saving something even more priceless - his own precious mind and precious heart. Poch Suzara


Religion shows us how to go to heaven. Science, on the other hand, shows us how the heavens go. For my part, I’d rather be on the side of philosophy: it shows us how to question both science and religion as neither has found the truth. In finding the truth, however, I would pin my hopes first on science; never on religion. I do not trust religion. All the great religions of the world began with sacred lies. Poch Suzara

Pagan Satirist Celsus

At the end of the 2nd century the Pagan satirist Celsus writes: “Christians, it is needless to say, utterly detest each other. They slander each other constantly with the vilest forms of abuse, and cannot come to any sort of agreement in their teaching.”
It is the same old story today in this 21st century. Look at us Filipinos in this biggest Christian country in Asia. Look how we all love divinity up there by making a mockery of our sense of humanity down here. Poch Suzara

Three Kinds of People

There are only three kinds of people in this world: those who upgrade the human race; those who degrade the human race; and the rest who could not care less as nothing matters to them except divine grace. Perhaps, there is the fourth kind - the Americans who will insist that there is more grace in the love of money than there grace in the love for the human race! Poch Suzara

Practice Makes Perfect

If practice makes perfect and we practice unhappiness everyday on this earth, by the time we get to heaven, we shall surely be experts at how to be unhappy perfectly. Indeed, as the prayer goes.. "on earth as it is in heaven." Poch Suzara

Power of God

There is no such thing as the power of God. There is only the power of the church. Church power comes from human ignorance of which the church has insured and perpetuated for herself with fear of the Lord on the one hand; and, on the other hand, with threats of eternal punishment in hell; especially for those who have no wish to embrace blind faith in the teachings of the church. Indeed, if there is a God, I refuse to believe that such a God would allow the Church to spread more nonsense to believe in this world so as to prepare its believers to enter a next world called the power and the kingdom of God.

Work of Fiction

No matter how a reader views a work of fiction, it cannot be denied that reading fiction shapes imagination, stirs emotion, and stimulates the intellect. Such is Dan Brown’s best seller the Da Vinci Code – 60 million copies sold and translated into 24 different languages worldwide.
The church claims that it does not manipulate revealed truth. It only serves the truth. What the church really means is that it serves fiction as the revealed truth has yet to be revealed. In the Da Vinci Code novel, a historian asked: what if the greatest story ever told is a lie? I watched the movie, then I read the book.Dan Brown indeed is a great writer. A better author than all the bible writers put together. Dan Brown makes his readers think. He teaches his readers to question and therefore to become less gullible.
To Dan Brown, please accept my deepest apologies for having written criticisms against you. My attack against you was based on catholic ignorance about your work. I am sorry, but now I know better. Thank you. Poch Suzara

The Death of Religion

A psuedo-scientist writes: “Humankind cannot abide the terror of mortality without the promise of immortality, I have argued in the past. In the absence of religion human society sinks into depressive torpor. Secular society therefore is an oxymoron, for the death of religion leads quickly enough to the death of society itself.” I ask: how true is this in China today as the Chinese people have been irreligious since the 11th century? Or take the USSR – a so-called atheistic nation that eventually crumbled but only because after dumping Christianity, the USSR replaced Christianity with another religion called “communism.” In the meantime, our world view has been deranged by myths imposed upon us by Christianity. For my part, I refuse to believe that centuries before Christianity arrived, ours was a dying society deprived of Christian teachings, values and beliefs. In fact, what diminished the Filipino of their rights to grow and to mature as decent human beings is evil of Christian religion. Indeed, up to this day and age, we still believe that religion has only to do with our knees, and not with our heads. I ask: What happened to our sense of intellectual honesty? I say phooey on Christianity. It continues to twist our minds as a people and continues to distort our hearts as a nation. And until we dump the evils of Christianity out of our country, indeed, out of our culture and tradition, the nothing that we Filipinos accomplished in the 16th century, we will only continue to accomplish more of the same nothing in this 21st century. Poch Suzara

The World

The world is painfully split into areas of wealth and poverty, with little prospect of narrowing the gap. The politics of global economic affairs in this century, as it was during the previous century, have been the politics of inequality, inherently a politics of internecine suspicion and power struggle and wars. With thanks to the US government always ready and eager to install freedom and democracy overseas. To mitigate not world poverty, but to liberate countries in order to promote and to develop American prosperity. Poch Suzara


Curiosity killed the cat. How fortunate for the cat. At least it was curious before it died. A lot of my friends and relatives and associates in the media and as professors in college who are all still alive have, instead, unfortunately, already killed their sense of curiosity. Consider the religious nonsense they were taught to believe during infancy; they still do believe it today even as they are already approaching senility. Poch Suzara


The existence of hospitals prove that prayers are utterly useless. As a matter of fact, if prayers work, we must pray harder for more hospitals, especially mental asylums, to be established throughout the Philippines. We need such facilities to help cure the Sick Man of Asia. A great many of them today were my former classmates, teachers, and professors at De La Salle University. Imagine these people. They still believe that the birth of health and the spread wealth and the general promotions of Filipino decency throughout the Philippines as a nation can only be a reality as soon as the Son of God Jesus from heaven will return back to his place of birth and death in Bethlehem some 2,000 years ago.

The Archbishop of Manila

The Archbishop of Manila urged the faithful to pray for Filipino priests so that they may remain true to their vocation.
I ask: if God does not listen to the prayers of his priests, why should God listen to the prayers of those who are not priests? And to think that these religious cripples are suppose to be our spiritual guardians! Is this therefore a matter of: - ask not what God and his archbishop and priests can do for you; instead, ask what you can do for God and his archbishop and priests?
And to think that these are the same mental midgets who inspired the Filipino since the 16th century to believe that God will always provide!
In the meantime, may I suggest to you so-called religious leaders of this country please read Bishop John Shelby Spong’s - WHY CHRISTIANITY MUST CHANGE OR DIE: “Christian ethics are not found in a system of behavior control. They are rather found in a call to the fullness of life. The business of the church is, therefore, not to judge life, but to enhance consciousness, to expose ignorance and prejudice, and to remove the barriers to life in all of its fullness. The Church’s task is to assist its people in plumbing the depths of their own humanity, where transcendence, mystery, being, and even love are to discovered, and to bring qualities found in the center of life into the world." Poch Suzara

God and Jose Rizal

God does not prevent an airliner from crashing into a mountain; does not prevent a passenger ship from sinking into the ocean; does not prevent a residential building from burning; or did not even prevent the Catholic Spain in the 16th century to conquer the Philippines in his name and for his glory.
But lo and behold, because our Jose Rizal dared to bring intelligence and enlightenment to the Filipino mind, God was able to successfully prevent our national hero from getting executed without first signing the retraction papers.
And to think that if Rizal retracted, the Catholic friars who planned his death could have given him a decent Catholic burial. Instead, after being shot dead, this rare Filipino was just put inside an old sack and then thrown in a little corner where heretics and infidels were buried in Paco cemetery. In the meantime, for the love of Jesus, even the distant relatives of Rizal today have been kept unduly frightened by the mediocrity of the Catholic authority.Poch Suzara

Darwin and Rizal

Charles Darwin was a more fortunate scientist than our own scientist Jose Rizal. Due to his own theory of intellectual evolution for the Filipino, Rizal was put to death by musketry as decreed by the ecclesiastical authority. Darwin was only arrested and then incarcerated. Darwin’s evolution, however, is no longer a theory. It is a scientific fact. In the meantime, intellectual evolution for the Filipino in the Philippines remains neither a fact nor a theory. It is simply, a Catholic inspired tragedy. Poch Suzara

The Catholic and the Protestant

The difference between a Catholic and a Protestant is that both read the bible but do not agree as to what exactly the so-called good book says. The similarity, however, is that both the Catholic and the Protestant are mutually inspired not by the Satan of religion, but to follow the religion of Satan. Look how the Catholics and the Protestants treat each other: they have not ceased hating each other for the sake of deviltry keeping our country poor and backward. Poch Suzara

Pope Benedict XV1

Pope Benedict XV1 discounted efforts by some quarters to rehabilitate Judas, calling the 13th apostle of Christ “a greedy liar” who cared nothing about love.
I ask: What happened to that message as preached by Jesus in the bible such as love your enemies? Poch Suzara


As a devout Catholic during the first 18 years of my life, I was then good; unfortunately, good for nothing. I loved Jesus more than I loved my mother and father and my sisters and other relatives and friends. I was always ready and willing to defend the values and beliefs of Christianity. I could not care less about the human family. I could not care less about the plight of humanity. I certainly had no feeling of urgency to participate in the struggle for either social sanity or for peace on earth and goodwill to all men living in harmony. Mine, indeed, was the triumph of faith; but a dismal failure in education. It was the philosopher Bertrand Russell – who showed me that there is more life than just my silly beliefs. Who showed me the way towards grace as to why I should always be on the side of the human race. Indeed, to love mankind, not for what they are to the outward eye, but for what imagination shows that they have in them to become. Poch Suzara


I have more respect for the dead Filipino than I have respect for the dead Jew. When a Filipino dies, he does not resurrect back to life. He does not make a mockery of immortality.

In the meantime, there is only one truth, only one fact, and that is the reality of our own mortality. Religion is often used to deny this truth, to negate this fact. However the case may be, no matter how one looks at it, life is but a brief fleeting, bittersweet instant in eternity.

For my part, as an atheist, I entirely agree with Bertrand Russell: If we must die, let us die sober, and not drunk with lies. Poch Suzara


Christianity is not only something of a superlative entertainment. In the world of trade and commerce, Christianity is also the most profitable of business enterprises. Consider the price of admission needed to gain entrance to this greatest show on earth. It is rather too heavy a price to pay: the mindless surrender of the precious self via the mutilation of the intellect. Poch Suzara

People Who Need People

People who need people are not only the luckiest people in the World. They are also among the wealthiest people in the world; especially if they were in the business of foreign politics specializing in the business of foreign wars. Poch Suzara

As an Atheist

I stand alone. It matters little to me if there were 10 or 100 or 1,000 or 10,000 or even 1,000,000 other atheists standing behind me. As an atheist, I have no need of other atheists to hold my hands especially as I struggle against the never- ending evils of superstition otherwise more popularly known as religion. To be worthy of atheism one must only carry on with the joys and beauty of intellectual courage. After all, all the great virtues are the virtues of men who stand alone.
In the meantime, as an atheist, let it be clearly understood that I do not believe in the existence of the God of the Catholics. I do not believe in the existence of the God of the Protestants. I do not believe in the God of the Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, or even in the God of my own creation, another omni-absent, good-for-nothing, supernatural -the ever mysterious and never so serious - Pocholian God! Poch Suzara


What if Jesus, Mary and Joseph together with the twelve apostles were first created by God in the Garden of Eden? What if Adam and Eve, Cain, Abel and the Talking Serpent have had no existence to disgrace the future of the human race? And to think that the bible admits that everything is possible with God. He could even impregnate a Virgin Mary to improve upon the descendants of Adam and Eve. And yet, God could not find it possible improve upon His original mess. Poch Suzara

The Wicked Says

In his pride the wicked says, There is no God to ask me for account. Psalm 10:4
On the contrary, there if there is a God, He should be held accountable for the conditions he had created that made men wicked. Poch Suzara

Religion and Prayer

Religion is supposed to comfort, not frighten – people. Religious people may feel the comfort of religion, but only for as long as they believe in what religion teaches, especially how to fear both life and death.
In the meantime, prayer is charlatanry, if not beggary; indeed, a pretentious effort at work to win that pie in the sky. Honest work is the only miracle that works. Poch Suzara

Religious Believers

The religious fanatics are up in arms about the Jesus and Magdalene marriage scandal written in the Dan Brown’s book the DA VINCI CODE – a work of fiction. But if you really want to get at the sources where Dan Brown formulated this work of fiction, please read the non-fiction book HOLY BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln. Indeed, in HOLY BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL Judas never betrayed Jesus who did not die on the cross. Jesus was married, a father of sons and daughters, and that his bloodline still exists today. The parchments found in the South of France a century ago reveal only a tiny portion of the best-kept secrets in Christendom. For my part, one need not go that far. Just read the four Gospel writers – Matthew, Luke, Mark, and John in the bible - to discover more about the pious frauds and other sacred lies that have kept Christianity rich and powerful during all these past centuries. Poch Suzara


Faith has reached its end. It is now dead. Any one who claims that he is a man of faith is not only insulting himself, but is doing his utmost best to prevent his own enlightenment. Respecting a man of faith is like respecting a drunkard who clings to a lamppost for support, not illumination. Poch Suzara

Closer to Jesus than to his own family and country

It’s incredible how most men with a school-boy mentality can have a personal relationship with Jesus. However, they could not have a meaningful relationship with their own spouse, or with their own parents, or with their own grandparents, or with their own sons and daughters, or with their own in-laws, or other friends and relatives. I try to imagine these men and women doing better for the good of their own country by having a harmonious relationship with their own minds and hearts - they are in closed touch with the hopes and dreams of fellow-citizens for the here and now. Sadly, however, these poor frightened saps only end up as either alcoholics, or drug-addicts, lunatics, fanatics, psychotics, or as Catholics for the glory of Jesus on earth as he is in heaven! In the meantime, when men talk to God - they are PRAYING. When God talks to men - they are HALLUCINATING. In either case, the result has always been SICKENING - there is only the SICK MAN OF FAITH - a blessed by God drunkard always clinging to a lamppost for support, not illumination.

The Gods as Particles

The Christians do not believe in the Muslim God. The Muslims do not believe in the Christian God. And neither the Christian nor the Muslim believe in the mother of their religion – Judaism which was founded upon an older religion – Mithraism.
More than a hundred billion religious people have already lived and died on this earth. My dear reader, do you really believe that a Christian God or a Muslim God or a Jewish God gives a hoot about the religious life on this earth? Consider the one million (1,000,000) planets the size of our earth can fit inside the sun! And our sun is just one of the trillions of suns called stars! If those Gods exist, they are just as microscopic a particle that exist in the universal scheme of existence.Poch Suzara

Economic Growth

It is still taught in our universities that population growth is a stimulant to economic growth. The opposite, in fact, is obviously true. Poverty growth, not economic growth, has been the result of population growth. Our economists still have the impression that there is no limit to growth; that there is in nature an infinite amount of resources, and that a satisfactory substitute can be found for every depleting resource. No doubt, during the past centuries, economic growth was the cure; today in this 21st century, economic growth is a disease. Consider most of today’s economic productivity causing “ecological destruction.”
In the 1950s, the population of the Philippines was 15 million Filipinos. We were then a poor country. Today in the year 2006, our population has reached 88 million Filipinos. We are poorer in this decade than we were poor during the past decades. In the meantime, the faithfools of this God-forsaken country are still preaching to the multitudes not to worry because God will provide. Poch Suzara


We atheists have nothing against morality as a method of insuring law and order in society. What we are against, however, is morality based upon religious mendacity and other ecclesiastical authority that have absolutely nothing to do with the creation of a sane and a healthy society.
Bertrand Russell wrote it briefly: I am not suggesting that a man should be destitute of morality. I am only suggesting that he should be destitute of superstitious morality, which is a very different thing. Poch Suzara

War is all about soldiers dying in the field of battle. After
the war, the stupid politicians take over the mess while the
economists under the payroll of the industrialists prepare for more war to take place. After all,there is more money to be made in the art of hating and killing than there is in the art of loving and healing. War is big business. Poch Suzara

Nothing is Permanent

Everything is in a state of flux. Everything is in motion. Nothing is permanent as everything is tentative. Change is the only reality. To believe means to be stuck under mediocrity. To think means being unstuck under rationality. It is therefore silly to believe in anything unchangeable as even life itself is all about growth and constant movement towards death and decay. Let us all enjoy the ride as it is free. The trip free on earth as our vehicle around the sun annually. Poch Suzara


I remember in school and at home how we were always active daily with prayers. I remember my parents, grandparents, uncles and aunties, and cousins and how we all prayed the rosary together nightly. We prayed for a miracle from God to please transform the Philippines into a decent country for all Filipinos. Today, it is just more of the same. We Filipinos are still as active as ever with daily prayers. Even the millions of Filipinos already enjoying higher standard of living in foreign countries continue praying to God for a miracle to change the Philippines for the better. These are the same Filipinos who long to come back home already. Especially, if they will have the same opportunities as employees working in the Philippines growing, expanding, and developing as a civilized nation. For my part, I say it again: it is about time we stop wasting time and energy with this prayer business as prayer is nothing but a lot of religious garbage? Isn’t it time that we Filipinos begin to grow as a people and begin to develop as a nation with the power of our own minds and hearts? If there were power in prayer, where are the results? How come in this day and age, even our own church officials are asking us to pray for the priests so that they may remain faithful to their vows, and not walk out of the priesthood industry? What we desperately need in the Philippines is more science and the scientific way of thinking. It is all about the power of knowledge that has nothing to do with the Gospels. Indeed, knowledge has nothing to do with the bible? Knowledge can never be discovered by reading a book written centuries ago by half-starved, protein-deficient, and poorly educated men wondering around the desert hallucinating from the desert heat in which they tried to make sense out of their own mediocre existence. And to think that those were the kind of superstitious morons who brought Christianity into our shores some 500 years ago. Indeed, Christianity – the religion based not upon the good life as inspired by love and guided by knowledge, but the religion based upon the thoughtless scheme of salvation from death. Until we learn to stop hating one another in God’s name, we shall never emerge out of our poverty as a people. Until we learn to love only the Philippines, we shall only continue to remain morally and spiritually bankrupt as a nation! Poch Suzara

Poverty of the Mind

The worst kind of poverty is the poverty of the mind. In this God-forsaken country, even the filthy rich are unable to enjoy the wealth of the mind because they have been taught to believe that if they remain poor in spirit – God will always bless them. Thus, the filthy rich and the filthy poor in the Philippines both equally suffer from the worse kind of poverty – the poverty of the mind.
In the meantime, we members of the intellectual community entirely agree with Bertrand Russell: - Happiness is the nonetheless true happiness because it must come to an end, nor do thought and love lose their value because they are not everlasting. Poch Suzara

I am a Filipino

I am an Asian and a Filipino born in the Philippines. Jesus was a Jew born in Israel. What have I anything to do with the Jews – supposedly already God’s Chosen people? And to think that the Philippines is predominantly a Catholic country; Israel is a Jewish State. And to think further that even Jesus Christ himself was not born of Catholic parents or even raised and educated in a Catholic school. Poch Suzara

God Will Provide

In the 1950s, the population of the Philippines was then 15 million Filipinos. We were then a poor country. Today in the year 2006, our population has reached 88 million Filipinos. We are poorer in this decade than we were poor during the past decade. In the meantime, the religious leaders of this God-forsaken country are still preaching to the multitudes not to worry because - God will provide. Poch Suzara
