My dear Jose Rizal, since your day of execution in December 30, 1896, you would think that we Filipinos could have already learned to be the real masters of human destiny in our own country. But thanks to the academic threats of hell-fire and deviltry, we just continue to be the historical victims of human stupidity. Of course we Filipinos hardly think of ourselves as lacking in self-respect and human dignity. On the contrary, we think of ourselves as highly blessed especially as we believe in a savior otherwise more known “Christianity.”
In the meantime it is strange but true: Never, was there ever, a Filipino who got to be filthy rich for believing that God is bad. And yet, millions of Filipinos are filthy poor for believing that God is good. Indeed, in this 21st century, we Filipinos are the Poor and the Sick Man of Asia. And as our population is increasing tremendously out of control recklessly - we continue to get even poorer and sicker. Oh, when is the Second Coming of the Lord who promised to remedy poverty out of our sick society? Poch Suzara

We are all born ignorant, not stupid. We are made stupid by education. What are the evidences to logically support the truth of this statement?
My dear reader, please take a serious look at the results of education cranked out yearly by Ateneo, La Salle, Letran, San Beda, Mapua, University of Santo Thomas, University of the Philippines, Marian college, Assumption college, Santa Escolastica, Asian Institute of Management, University of the East, Adamson University, etc.
Please consider the shady character of these college educated men and women as corrupt products of these prestigious universities. Elected or appointed or promoted as officials to manage the government of the Philippine, it has become nothing but a reflection of the politically tragic at its best, if not economically destructive at its worst.
And to think the politicians in our government share a common goal with the theologians in our Church: Both have high hopes of keeping the Filipino perpetually poor on the one hand, and keep the Filipino eternally ignorant on the other hand.I rest my case. Poch Suzara
At the rate the power of science is growing, developing, and expanding, there is nothing any more that’s unthinkable. Indeed, with science anything that is conceivable or imaginable is achievable. Except the conveyors of human stupidity. They still think that science and human stupidity are all one and the same animal created in the image and likeness of a creator.
For my part, I have every respect for science. Science is a rebellion against human stupidity especially as it established itself as a church or authority. Poch Suzara

The church equally condemns married couples as immoral if they practice family planning and birth control measures. The church loves the population explosion everywhere. It maintains and supports suffering, poverty, and misery – the very evils that keep the business of the church growing, developing, and expanding. Poch Suzara
Instead of faith, I’d rather have confidence. Life is too damned short and fleeting. Indeed, if the examined life is worth living, then our beliefs must always be examined if our lives were to be worth living especially for and in the business of establishing peace on earth and goodwill to all men.
What about the values of citizenship? My country continues to suffer from lack of leadership due to the traditional controllership of the Vatican Lordship over the millions of the faithful Catholic membership! Poch Suzara

The Catholic Vatican Bank today is worth more than a trillion dollars in cash deposits. And yet, De La Salle University President is asking for donations to support his Catholic students on scholarship. The One La Salle Scholarship Fund Campaign hopes to raise a billion pesos ($50 million dollars) by the year 2011. La Salle president Brother Luistro himself admits: “The majority of these young people would not even dare enter the halls of our schools because of financial inability.”Ours, indeed, is the most corrupt religion in all of Asia. Poch Suzara
Poverty, squalor, and misery keep Christianity going. The ulterior purpose of the whole Christian system of salvation is to make people ill or troubled. Indeed, to put more decadence locally than to spread more intelligence regionally. Look at the Philippines as a backward and a corrupt nation – the only Christian country in all of Asia since the 16th century.
The problem is that we Filipinos only want stupid religion. We do not want intelligent science. We are in mortal fear of science as the one sermon of science is that all life eats other life, and that all life will die. We will never accept science until it transforms the Philippines into an earthly paradise. As long as we have poverty, squalor, and misery – we will never abandon Jesus, Mary, and Joseph and the saints and the other members of the holy trinity otherwise more known as Christianity.
And so, “lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth,… but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth and rust doth corrupt, and were thieves break through and steal. Matt. 6:20.Notice the bible does not admit who are the biggest thieves in the world – the men in the priesthood industry! Poch Suzara
I envy the dead. The dead can no longer be acquisitive, jealous, combative, erotic, indeed, can no longer be stupid and insane!
One day, like it or not, we too will eventually join the dead. I ardently hope, however, there is no next world, no hereafter managed by a silly divinity in cahoots with a silly deviltry to ruin again precious life for the sake of nothing, but infinite stupidity.In the meantime, I ask: should we have more faith with the living dead in this world; or, have more faith with the dead living in the next world?

It is often said that God loves the poor. He made so many of them. If this were true how come God never listens to the prayer of the poor? They are getting poorer. God, however, always listens to the prayer of the rich. They are getting richer!
Then again, if God loves the poor, how come he created a billion of them in China who are not even Christians, but who are now getting rich as a people and acquiring super power as a nation? Poch Suzara
If I were Jesus crucified on the cross, I should have cried out loud: - “Man, forgive God for He knows not what in hell he is doing!” Poch Suzara
The eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his mercy. Psalms 33:18Just exactly like the moron who bullied me years ago when I was in grade school at De La Salle University. Like the dummy that I was then, I begged for his mercy too. Until I also, via association, learned to be a bully too. I managed to bully even my teachers with merciless non-stop deep questions.

Filipino motor vehicle drivers do not care for traffic rules. They are ignorant of such rules to begin with. A red light is merely a suggestion. It does not mean stop. A pedestrian lane exists only in fantasy, never a reality constructed in our city streets.Speaking about Filipino hospitality, generosity, caring, a smiling race, and always faithful to Mary, the Mother of God – this obviously could only be the conclusion of a college-educated moron.

In the second encyclical of his papacy, Pope Benedict urges Christians to
put their hope for the future in God and not in technology, wealth or
As an atheist, I say, if God exist and doing his job as a God, we should
have no need for technology, wealth or political ideologies. In fact, at this
point and time, with the guidance from an existing supernatural power
called God, mankind should already be living in peace, inhabiting
creatively and exploring productively the planets comprising the Solar
The Pope also admitted: "Let us put it very simply: man needs God,
otherwise he remains without hope." I entirely agree. But then again, if
God is everywhere existing, why is there a need for religious crackpots to
play God? In the Philippines, he is usually referred to as the cardinal
with his bishops.My dear Pope Benedict, no doubt, scientific knowledge has brought troubles
into our world. What will remedy the mess, however, is not less, but
precisely more scientific knowledge doing its best for the good of mankind.
More than 90 per cent of the 1.9 million babies born yearly in the Philippines suffer from lack of hygiene, sanitation, and nutrition. The causes of mental retardation via brain damage. It is one reason why we are a nation of morons. The other reason comes from our schools, colleges, and universities. Such places of learning continue to teach such silly nonsense like Jewish God created the Filipino in His own image and likeness.
If you examine seriously the similarity between the Jews and Filipinos, you would clearly see there isn’t any. To begin with, the Jews are the chosen people of God. And what have we Filipinos got anything to do with Jewish history, culture, laws, religion, and tradition?For Christ’s sake, if we Filipinos were to be guilty of the original sin, the least we should have first is our own original religion. Since the 16th century, we never had any except vague copies! Poch Suzara
A reader wrote explaining why we are the Sick Man of Asia. He concluded that it is because we Filipinos have not accepted the right religion for our country.
I replied: if there were such a business as the right religion, it is the right religion according to whom and to be determined by whom?In the meantime, why bother to think when Christianity has already determined for us all the answers? What's the use of examining the facts when the Vatican keeps reminding the multitude about the pains of eternal punishment if we ever try to question its doctrines or if we try to seek the truth! And to think that these are the same religious morons who keep bragging that God is everywhere and who gifted man with a free will. Poch Suzara
Coup D’etat in the Philippines is not about social or economic reconstruction. It is not even about government reformation. It is only about more destruction. Indeed, to add more to the daily confusion for the sake of the political illusion as inspired by historical deception experienced by a people enjoying the adequacy of a delusion. Poch Suzara

Amidst the sin, crime, and corruption that make for our sick society, it is claimed that, nevertheless, we always have something to be thankful for. Indeed, we have. For my part, I am thankful that I am a Catholic no more!No doubt, it is historically true, Magellan discovered the Philippines in 1521. It was because of Magellan that we Filipinos became Catholics. Today in the year 2007, almost 500 years later, we Filipinos have yet to discover too the Philippines, and to discover also why we are a nation of lunatics. Poch Suzara
In China, ordinary minds talk about people. Average minds talk about events. Great minds talk about ideas.
In the Philippines, what we have are sick minds – we only talk of how we should embrace the love of divinity up there by struggling against deviltry called sin down here. Hell, we do not even talk about love of our country and its future. We only talk about the better world to come after we are all dead, buried, and gone.Look how sick we are as Filipinos, especially in the church and in the government. Sin is forgiven all the time. Crime is pardoned all the time. Corruption is both forgiven and pardoned especially with those who are the powerful friends of corruption in this God-forsaken country. We are, indeed, the Sick Man of Asia. Poch Suzara

I was once myself a religious moron. It was during kindergarten, grade school, and high school days. Confession every Friday. Mass and communion every Sunday. Prayers morning, noon, and night. I must have uttered more than a million times our school prayer: “Saint John Baptist De la Salle, pray for us. Leave Jesus in our hearts. Forever.”
I believed then with all of my heart and soul that God created man in his own image and likeness. Until I read a simple biological truth never revealed to me before. “Life is a sexually transmitted disease with a death rate of 100 per cent.”I decided to grow up. Slowly, gradually, and indeed painfully, I managed to throw all of my moronic beliefs out the window. Never have I felt a useless load off my back that crippled me then with poverty of the worst kind – the poverty of the mind and heart. Poch Suzara
Men of faith do not want to know. Like misguided children, they only want to believe.
We Filipinos are men of faith. It means we have no faith in our country. In this 21st century, however, we still have faith that as our country grows darker, the promised return of the Son grows brighter.
Ignorance and fanaticism is perpetually busy and it needs feeding. All of our famous religious leaders – the Catholic bishops, Mike Velarde of El Shaddai, Eddie Villanueva of Jesus is Lord Movement, Brother Eli Soriano of Ang Dating Daan, including my teachers at La Salle University during grade school and high school proved themselves experts with the works of the Lord feeding ignorance and fanaticism.Isn’t free will a wonderful thing? After we faithfully feed ignorance and fanaticism in our own country, we Filipinos then migrate to other countries so that we can begin also to feed and support our family especially with self-respect and dignity. Poch Suzara
I have long maintained that corruption in the Philippines is systemic.
A great majority of Filipinos (out of a total of around 88 million) are in the clutches of chronic and dehumanizing poverty.
Poverty and Corruption: that is a deadly combination.
Which explains why the Philippines has been drifting aimlessly all these terrible years since independence in 1946--that's a total of 61 years!--like a rudderless ship, tossed willy-nilly here and there by an angry sea.I am afraid it will continue to do so--on and on...on and on--ad infinitum, or till hell freezes over.

A 21st century rare Filipino Louie Fernandez wrote: “If the Filipino masses and our cowardly politicians were not like sheep to their priests and the Filipino Catholic hierarchy, and these intelligent priests were not mere mindless errand boys to the Vatican, this tragedy would not have happened.” I entirely agree without question.If only our columnists and editors have the intellectual rarity of a Louie Fernandez – there is hope for our country. As it is, every year, we only seem to enjoy reading about the failure of our values and beliefs under the success of nothing in this country except Christianity. Poch Suzara
Mayor Jojo Binay of Makati said that: “Our country is not only bankrupt economically, but also bankrupt morally.” Phil Star Oct. 17, 2007.
May I also add bankrupt biblically? Look how, in this 21st century, we continue to pray to a higher power to remedy the ills of our perpetually sick society?
We are, indeed, a corrupt people because of our corrupt faith in corrupt values and beliefs for the sake of the corrupt salvation of our corrupt souls.
To think corruption was brought into this land by corrupt Spanish friars, They too were gifted with corrupt free will from a corrupt country that was then ruled by a corrupt King.Indeed, consider those corrupt Spanish religious criminals: they sold the Philippines to the United States of America, a nation just as greedy, selfish, stupid, insane, and indeed, just as corrupt, - for $20,000,000 dollars.

If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you are hallucinating. God talked to Moses. Golly, God even dictated the Ten Commandments to Moses. Oh well, that was during the biblical century.
In this 21st century, however, God talked to the President of the USA; and, to the President of the Philippines.As to what exactly God talked to them about, even the brightest among the Harvard University theologians had no idea. Poch Suzara

Let’s be honest and frank. If there were evidences that there is a better world to come after we are dead, then suicide should one of the greatest of virtues, if not the greatest of man’s pleasures.Imagine the planet earth, due to daily suicide, there would be no such thing as overpopulation, poverty problem, violence and wars. All babies would be born loved, needed, and wanted – the very foundation for peace on earth and goodwill to all men. Poch Suzara
What's wrong with believing what’s not true? It is the same as believing that 2 plus 2 is not 4.
Now let’s ask: what’s wrong with believing what is false? Nothing wrong with it except that it is usually referred to as “blind faith” – the foundation and the promotion of superstition.
But then again: what’s wrong with believing in superstition? Nothing wrong with it except that superstition is precisely what makes the Philippines - the Sick Nation of Asia.Historian Teodoro A. Agoncillo summarized it without thinking twice: “Self-deception is the worst tragedy of the Filipino as a people.” Poch Suzara

If it is true that the Philippines has no overpopulation problem and that our problem of vast poverty is really due to unequal distribution of wealth as provided by God, I ask: when will the Vatican bank begin to return and distribute to poor Filipinos the trillions of dollars stolen by religion big business in the Philippines – the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16 century?

“Study the bible to be wise; believe it to be safe; practice it to be holy.” Philippine Star Nov. 17, 2007.If the bible was truly written by inspired authors of God and if God made any sense at all, no one would need to acquire a modicum of common sense to do what any sane man should do after studying, believing and practicing the bible: throw the silly book out the window. The bible is a good book; unfortunately, good for nothing. Look at the results of bible teachings in the Philippines – the only Christian country since the 16h century.
For my part, I wasted precious years of my youth studying, believing, and practicing such biblical childish nonsense. Poch Suzara
Nobel Prize-wining American physicist Steven Weinberg said: “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, it takes religion.”What is even more scandalous, however, are the people who invented good religion. They themselves have turned out to be good; unfortunately, good for nothing. Poch Suzara
A college student in Adamson University proudly commented that it is ok for me not to believe in God since God believes in me. Well, I replied: I find it enigmatic that a God could also be in the childish business of believing or disbelieving anything!

“Every cause, “ wrote Paul Ehrlich, “is a lost cause unless there is population control.” With all due respect, I do not quite agree. The more people there are existing under subhuman conditions, indeed, the more misery and poverty that exist in the world, the more the cause of religion becomes a winning cause.Christianity always had a vested interest in human suffering. Christianity had been quite a success by capitalizing on human suffering. She has been enormously successful in insuring her own existence through the perpetuation of human suffering via blind faith. Especially in the Philippines. The only Christian country in Asia since the 16th century. Poch Suzara

In recent decades homosexuals and the lesbians have come out of the closet. Openly and publicly, they have courageously exposed their real identity for everyone to tolerate.
The atheists, however, are still playing hide and seek inside the closet. They are still afraid to rock the religious boat. Atheist are still careful not to displease the homosexuals and the lesbians who are owners of schools, colleges, and universities, including the so-called “freaks” of nature as priest and nuns in the priesthood industry. To think that it takes a much higher I.Q. to be an atheist. Poch Suzara

Nature is terrible and cruel. It cares nothing for human values. Nature is also wasteful. Moreover, nature has only to do with birth, death, and decay. Nothing is permanent in nature. As an atheist I admit that I am a part of nature as nature is part of me. Now where or when or how has God ever revealed himself in nature? Poch Suzara
What is the most pressing issue besetting our country today?
I say blind faith. We are still blind with so much faith in the power of stupid prayer.
During the past 400 years, we never missed praying daily to a higher power to remedy the ills of our sick country.
In the meantime, we are a corrupt people because of our corrupt values and corrupt beliefs.In this 21st century, we are still praying to Mary, Mother of God, to pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, amen?” Poch Suzara
The 100 trillion cells that are bundled up together comprising our body are not human cells, but tiny animal cells. It is amazing how such tiny creatures together could evolve into our physical form and still more amazing how such little devils could evolve as thinking human beings.Too bad silly religion managed to intrude into the picture to damaged man’s thinking capacity; especially to believe that a God made man in his own image and likeness.

In school, we were taught to believe that God is omni-present. And yet, God has always been omni-absent. God was not present to edit the works of His inspired authors who recklessly wrote such nonsense as “Cain knew his wife,” or that “Joshua commanded the sun to stop,” or that God told Noah to save not his neighbors, but to “save the animals,” or that dead characters in the Old and in the New testament were able to resurrect themselves back to life.

Bertrand Russell was once accused of being “lecherous, salacious, libidinous, lustful, venerous, erotomaniac, aphrodisiac, atheistic, irreverent, narrow-minded, bigoted, untruthful, and bereft of moral fibre.”
On the contrary, Russell was one of the kindest philosophers who ever lived. In his time in many countries, he intellectually taught millions of people to be courageous with self-respect and to be comfortable with human dignity.
Next to Russell, I have the greatest respect and admiration for the famous atheist-biologist Richard Dawkins. He recently published “The God Delusion” – a best seller in the USA and Britain, it is now also coming out in 30 foreign editions, shooting onto best seller lists in Italy, Germany, Brazil and Spain.I particularly enjoyed reading Dawkins’ description of God of the Old Testament - “arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction… a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sado-masochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” Poch Suzara
The bible tells us to have faith. But faith means having the free will to choose to avoid knowing what is true.The bible tells us to love our neighbors and to love our enemies.
