White-American Gimcrackery

On CBS ‘60 Minutes’ Andy Rooney remarked: “My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours.” No kidding? Any native Indian or native Mexican can cry about it with more truthfulness: “My ancestors died in vain for you to leave the countries you were born in to come over and claim it as your own by naming it the United States of America. And to think in America, there is this grand claim inscribed on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” At any given day, (7) seven million white American citizens cannot find decent employment in America. It is all about a lot of white American gimcrackery! I should know. As a poor immigrant, I lived and worked in America for some 17 years. My job there was about working hard to help my white rich employer become filthy richer. Oh yes, in America there’s the beauty of individualism; but what is, however, far more important is capitalism. US Capitalism now owns and controls more than 60 per cent of the world’s natural resources. Moreover, as the only super power, American capitalism has but one single goal: to rule the world unchallenged with its military fire power. My dear Andy Rooney, may I suggest you read history books written by a rare and honest American historian - Howard Zinn. It is truthful historians like Howard Zinn that prevents me from totally losing hope with America and its decent future. In his PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES, he writes: - “We are not hated because we practice democracy, value freedom, or uphold human rights. We are hated because our government denies these things to people in Third World countries whose resources we coveted by our multinational corporations. That hatred we have sown has come back to us in the form of terrorism… Instead of sending our sons and daughters around the world to kill Arabs so we can have the oil under their sand, we should send them to rebuild their infrastructure, supply clean water, and feed starving children … In short, we should do good instead of evil. Who would try to stop us then? Who would hate us then? Who would want to bomb us? That is the truth the American people need to hear.” Poch Suzara

Email Response

I get messages such as "Please do not include me in your e-mailing list. My mind is not that great to comprehend your message."
My response: Ok will delete your name in my address book. I understand your predicament. You must be a college educated individual. I feel so sorry for you.
Yours sincerely, Poch Suzara, Chairman, High School Dropout Association of the Philippines.

Religious Morons

Religious morons will tell about the wonderful word of God written in the bible. But never will they ever inspire you to read the bible thoroughly and properly. You can only read the bible under ecclesiastical guidance. You are not allowed to interpret bible contents. In other words, the bible was not written for the inspired readers, but only written by inspired authors of God. Well, I read the bible and studied it for some 20 years. After I threw the bible out the window, I began to be happy as a thinking man. Also, I was able to recapture the lost reality of my birth called “atheism.” Just like you my dear reader, I was also born an atheist. Indeed, no one is born a Christian or a Muslim or a Jew, or what-not. We are all born devoid of conscience and therefore arrived into this God-forsaken world as unbelievers of the faith. Poch Suzara

The Filipino Challenge

The greatest challenge we Filipinos must face in this 21st century is to stand up as a people against our childish religious beliefs that have not ceased to inspire fear and ignorance, poverty and suffering, and backwardness in this Asia’s only Christian country.
We need public discourse about the life and times of our greatest hero – Jose Rizal and his courage not only at love of country, but especially about his critical thinking and intellectual honesty. Nothing stands in the way of this progress more than the respect we give to our Christian religion. Indeed, the same religion that has caused so much troubles and problems in the Western world ever since its Founder – the Son of God Jesus – crucified on the cross, cried out: “My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me.” Poch Suzara

Thought and Love

One of the horrors we first learned in school was how to be habitually thoughtless. We all wished to win the love of our teachers in school, and so we showed our teachers how happy we got to be thoughtlessly believing as we hated higher learning especially via hating questioning with deeper thinking. In the meantime, the greatest creation we can enjoy in life is not love but the power of thought; for, devoid of thought, the power of love cannot exist. Poch Suzara

Rizal's Death-defying Poem

In his death-defying Ultimo Adios poem, Rizal said: I go where faith does not kill, and God alone reigns over all.”
millions of Filipinos really believe that Rizal was such a mediocre thinker in that he was referring to the God of the Christians or the God of the Muslims or the God of the Jews or the God of the Lilliputians. Indeed, these assorted believers of Gods have not ceased cutting each other’s throats because they cannot even agree as to whether God is a he, a she, or an it?
Rizal was obviously referring to the God of the thinkers, philosophers, and scientists. The God otherwise known as the simple God of Reason. Poch Suzara

Poor Jose Rizal

I am asked to give three reasons why Jose Rizal should NOT be the national hero of the Philippines. I can only give one reason: Rizal died for thinking men and thoughtful women and for children to be educated with the values in truthfulness. Since we continue to be a nation of dumbstruck certified morons, Rizal does not deserved to be our national hero. Our real heroes should be the Knights of Rizal and other Rizalist groups who are all so proud and happy spreading more spiritual poverty, moral bankruptcy, political mediocrity, social insanity, and religious stupidity, not to mention science inefficiency as the great values and beliefs that keep the Filipino as the Sick Man of Asia who gives not a hoot about the habit of serious reading of books. Especially books on the philosophy of the sciences.
And to think our Asian neighbors are today enjoying not only the higher standard of living, but more so the higher standard of thinking only because they have been substantiating quite seriously what Jose Rizal has been saying more than a hundred years ago: -“If our country is ever to be free, it will not be through vice and crime, it will not be so by corrupting its sons, by deceiving some and bribing others, and it will be through education and industry.”
Poor Jose Rizal, he never knew that our schools, colleges, and universities will be under the manipulative control of his deadly enemy – stupid religion keeping the Philippines ever poor and ever backward. Poch Suzara

American Students and Apes

The push to teach “intelligent design” in America raises the question: “Does God have a place in American science classrooms?
The fundamentalists in charge of education in America apparently do not believe that God is omni-present. That God, somehow, during science classrooms is only omni-absent.
In the bible, God admits: “For dust art thou and unto dust shalt thou return.” Well, if God made man in his own image and likeness, it follows that God must be made of dust too. What purpose is there to put God in American science classrooms if God, like dust, were already omni-present everywhere?
For my part, I have more respect for the apes. They were designed not only intelligently, but more so gracefully. Look how the apes live in peace on earth and goodwill to all apes. Apes do not terrorize each other in God’s name. Apes do not go to war to kill other apes in order to establish freedom and democracy!
I envy the life of the apes. They have no system for eternal salvation. They have no church, no synagogue, and no mosque to inspire the faithful to become selfish, greedy, stupid, and insane. Apes do not prove themselves worthy of divine rewards by cutting each other’s throat so that they can go to paradise to be with a peaceful, kind, and ever loving God. Poch Suzara

Salvation via Corruption

There is economic growth in the Philippines for as long as there is corruption. Economic growth not only for the corrupt rich getting richer, but also for the corrupt poor getting poorer. Corruption as the basis of Filipino culture has more to do with Christianity. Indeed, why bother with the creation of a sane and a healthy society? Or respecting law and order? Or why bother with growth as a people and maturity as a nation? After all, for the sake of salvation, there is always the forgiveness of sin and the forgiveness of crime available at any time from God via the Christian priesthood industry. In the meantime, in this only Christian country in Asia, we Filipinos still faithfully believe what Jesus preached centuries ago: “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” In other words: Do not think like men and women. Just believe like boys and girls do believe. Poch Suzara Atheist# Google# Twitter# Facebook#

Jesus as God and God as Jesus

In John, Jesus speaks frequently of his extraordinary status in life and speaks of himself in the most exalted language: I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. 8:12 A AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. 6:35 I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE. 11:25 I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. 14:6 I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE. 10:30 WHOEVER HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN MY FATHER. 14:6 NO ONE COME TO GOD EXCEPT THROUGH ME. 16:6 And yet, crucified on the cross, with more exalted language, Jesus cried out: “My God, My God, why has thou forsaken me?” Now how could a God possibly forsake Himself? And to think this is the same Jesus who, as a member of the holy trinity, pleaded: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Perhaps, Jesus was referring to those sinners who did not know what they were doing before the great flood and indeed, especially, even after the great Flood? In the meantime, I ask: why should God tell parents how to raise children when he himself had drowned his own children? In the last analysis, I am told that 98 per cent of Filipinos believe, love, and worship God; and only 2 per cent do not as they are the atheists - I am most proud that I am among those in the 2 per cent as I am not only deadly spiritually, but also lively intellectually as an atheist.

God Found Me Experience

The bible relates an account of one man's "God found me" experience. It is recorded in the Hebrew Old Testament. His name is Elisha. The bible readers are inspired to believe Elisha probably experienced this unique encounter with God around 3,000 years ago.
“Come out," He called, "and stand on the mountain before the Lord." And lo, the Lord passed by.
There was a great and mighty wind, splitting mountains and shattering rocks by the power of the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind - an earthquake;
but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake - fire; but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire - 'kol demamah dakkah,' the sound of delicate silence. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his mantle about his face and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. - 1 Kings 19:11-13 ***
Millions of people believe this fairy tale as something actual or factual. These are the same dumbstruck bible believers who are just as impressed with Jesus in the New Testament. Indeed, Jesus changed water into wine, cured leprosy, made the blind see, the deft hear, the dumb speak. Jesus raised the dead back to life.
It would have been far more miraculous, however, had Jesus cured diseases not in retail, but wholesale. How? By simply making not diseases, but health contagious. In this way, Filipinos would waste no more time waiting for the Second Coming of Christ to remedy the diseases that make for our sick society.
But then again, what could be more miraculous than curing not bodily diseases, but infirmities of the soul – that is to say curing men of their vices and their depravities, which are worse than germs, bacteria, and viruses living inside the human body created in the image and likeness of God? Well, this is Jesus – the Son of God? Now what about His God the Father himself? He was kind enough to send an angel to console and to assist a young Virgin Mary, while He left, and still leaves every day millions of mothers and children to languish and to starve to death.
As for me, I thank both God and the devil together that I am an Atheist. Indeed, a proud and a happy Atheist till the day I turn into dust. As a matter of fact, I would rather end up as a pile of dust enjoying infinity than having to meet in the "next world" either deviltry or divinity. Poch Suzara

The Stupid Devil

Was The devil really that stupid? The bible account clearly proves it. Please see Matthew chapter 4 verse 8-10. “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them.“And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou will fall down and worship me.” “Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Of course, Jesus in this episode, was not only childish himself, but also gullible. He miserably failed to remind the stupid devil that he had no legal title or rights of ownership to assets and properties and kingdoms of this world to offer to anyone. Jesus could have simply told the stupid devil that “Hey, you poor sap! What are you talking about? My father, the creator of heaven and hell, is the rightful owner of the kingdoms you are offering me!” Really, if we were to read bible contents inspired with critical analysis, we need not end up being bible believers stuck with mental paralysis. To begin with, why would God inspire only authors to write the bible? The more intelligent thing to do is to inspire the best part of any book - the millions of readers? In this way, we need worship divinity by hating humanity which in fact characterizes the entire history of Christianity. But then again, I could be dead wrong. The devil could be the smartest creature God ever created. After all, ours is not only the devil of religion, but also the religion of the devil! Poch Suzara

More on the Stupid Devil

Bishop Teodoro Bacani Jr wrote “The devil continues to dangle every kind of temptation before us.” Manila Standard Today 2-27-2007
And to think that millions upon millions of poverty stricken Filipinos have never ceased praying daily to God to “give us this day our daily bread,” and to “lead us not into temptation.” Poch Suzara


There is no such thing as destiny. There are only choices. For my part, I choose to live the good life - one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. After which, after death, I have no choice but to be where I was millions of years before I was born – a place called nothing. Just like you, my dear reader, and just like everyone else. We may fear dying, but death itself should not be feared because death is an absolute nothing and it is utterly foolish to live in fear of nothing. Poch Suzara

Newspaper Banner

The Philippine Star has this front page banner: THE TRUTH SHALL PREVAIL. No doubt, the truth according to the Catholic teachings. All the owners and stockholders and members of the Board of Directors and employees of the Philippine Star are all devout Catholics.
In the meantime, the struggle for press freedom in this God-forsaken country is a sick national mockery. Journalism is not answerable to the truth but answerable only to God via the Catholic Bishops of the Philippines. Indeed, in this 21st century, both readers and writers in this God-forsaken country still believe in the existence of eternal hell-fire as taught to us to believe when we were little boys and girls in school. Poch Suzara

Best Seller

Best sellers come and go, but the Word of God abides forever. Philippine Star January 29, 2007.
Obviously, the religious buffoon who wrote those words could not fathom two essential issues related to what he wrote. In the first place, in this country, nobody gives a damn about best sellers since we are not a nation of mature readers.
n the second place, if the Word of God written in the bible made more sense rather than nonsense, made more construction rather than destruction, indeed, made more social sanity rather than religious insanity - what need is there for best sellers? Poch Suzara

Erich Fromm

In his anatomy of Human Destruction, Erich Fromm wrote: “Man is the only animal who not only knows objects but who knows that he knows. Man is the only animal who has not only instrumental intelligence, but reason, the capacity to use his thinking to understand objectively – i.e., to know the nature of things as they are in themselves, and not only as means for his satisfaction. Gifted with self-awareness and reason, man is aware of himself as a being separate from nature and from others; he is aware of his powerlessness, of his ignorance; he is aware of his end: death.”
As a matter of fact, no other living creature on this earth except man who has the temerity to believe that God created man in his own image and likeness. Poch Suzara

College Students

College students, especially those enrolled in Catholic colleges are not taught to make things happen. Instead, they learn only to wait for things to happen. Especially to wait for the Second Coming of Christ – the Redeemer who will remedy all the ills of our sick society.
What’s sad, however, among my friends, relatives, and associates who are all college graduates is that they all love their so-called education, but hardly love the Philippines – their nation. Well, to begin with, they all were taught to believe in the better life to come after death in heaven. Such a sacred belief has certainly devalued human life in this country. Poch Suzara


Aside from that love for divinity, most people love even more money. They have been taught to believe that money is not everything. It is the only thing. No, they would not bother looking for valuable answers to precious questions. Clearly, they haven’t got intelligent questions to ask. They are happy with the stupid answers. Inside or outside their empty head nothing intellectual bothers them. But they will do anything for money. Steal it. Swindle it. Grab it. Get married for it. Lie for it. Kill for it. Even inherit it. What matters is having lots of money. It does not matter where the money would come from. What matters is that they have must it. Tons of it. The crime or the sin involved along the way does not matter either. After all, what matters in the end is the forgiveness of human stupidity by a great and wonderful divinity. Poch Suzara

Born Naked

Just like every one else, I was born naked. But not like everyone else, I have every wish to leave this world one day stark naked. Indeed, if it is true that I will meet my creator after death, it would truly be exciting to meet a naked creator. God created man in his own image and likeness, didn’t he? Poch Suzara


To bring forth children into this world of hate and poverty is the greatest of crime. Men and women have yet to learn how to have sex for fun since only very few couples, married or un-married, have the ability or the talent to raise children with loved and affection. Children that are wanted, needed, and loved are never a disgrace; on the contrary, they always grow up to be a grace to the human race. If peace on earth and goodwill to all men will ever become a terrestrial reality one day, it will be due to all children being born welcomed not only by both mothers and fathers, but by a sane society in general.
To me, in my simplicity, mothers and children are the most precious people in this world. I should therefore be very careful and most concerned in how such precious children and precious mothers are being multiplied and replenished on this earth. Poch Suzara

Religion and Science

Science at its best is the rebellion against divinity. It is the exact opposite of religion – at its best it is the rebellion against deviltry. Indeed, in any human enterprise, science produces the greatest and the most original burst of creativity. Religion encourages only stupidity in facing reality as it promotes local as well as global insanity. Poch Suzara


War is not only a clash of values and cultures; it is not only a political decision; it is not only nature’s way of blasting stupid men out of their stupid existence. War is mostly about the owners, stockholders, and the traders of the arms industry who make tons of money. They pray daily to God to inspire nations to hate and to kill each other, especially in His name on this earth and for His glory in heaven. Poch Suzara

Eternal Salvation

Nothing could be more truthful than the belief that the dead man lives no more. Nothing could be more untruthful than the belief that the dead man is still alive.
In the meantime, the belief that we will be happy or unhappy after death of the body, is to pretend that we will be able to see without eyes, to hear without ears, to taste without a palate, to smell without a nose, and to feel without hands and without skin. Indeed, the dogma of immortality is purely based upon the condition of a dead man who refuses to believe that he is already dead. Poch Suzara

Born Ignorant

We are all born ignorant, not stupid; we are made stupid by education. And to think that God gifted man with a free will in order that we may be happy with our stupid education down here. Indeed, to the mediocre, mediocrity is a form of happiness; especially for the sake of anything out there. Poch Suzara


There is no such animal as a psuedo-atheist. Either you are a genuine atheist or just a religious clown pretending to be one. Once, however, you have seen the bright light of atheism, it is ridiculous to go back to embrace darkness called theism. Otherwise, if you do, you are either a “psycho-ceramic” in the scientific term; or, in the layman’s term, - a “crackpot.” Indeed, a troubled brain believes everything. It examines nothing. We atheists are fully aware that religion buys its benefits at too dear a price: - the mindless surrender of the self via the mutilation of the intellect. Atheism is all about the power of reason. It is also about the bed-rock of sanity in a world gone mad. We atheists do not want to believe. We want to know. And we know that the search for the truth is man’s most noble profession. Prove to us that God exists and we will prove to you that God is neither a Catholic, nor a Muslim, nor a Jew, or what have you. Intelligent thinking is far more valuable to an atheist than infantile believing. In the history of our world, no atheist has ever waged violence and war against other atheists for not believing in God. In the ultimate analysis, we do not hate life nor do we live in fear of death. We have no fear of what is known neither do we tremble before what is unknown. The human race is alone and insecure and doomed. Let us meet these facts with cheerfulness, courage, love, beauty, and the joys in life. Let us carry on the pursuit of our ideals for human happiness in the here and the now. We atheists would rather stand and face death with intellectual sobriety. We do not care to meet death on our bended knees drunk with ecclesiastical mendacity. Poch Suzara

I love and respect Scientists

In the conflict between the theology against science, I am on the side of the scientists. Never will I ever be on the side of the theologians. Especially the kind I had as my teachers in De La Salle University. They always threatened me with “believe this, because if you don’t, God will punish you.” I was therefore always punished in class because far more than I wanted to believe, I wanted to know and understand. In class, I always asked questions. I always wanted to formulate for myself better kinds of questions. Indeed, for me, hard intelligent thinking is more fascinating than just easy stupid believing.
With Jose Rizal, however, outside academic wall, it was, for him, a deadly experience. Theologians threatened him with: “Retract the truthful things you wrote about us in your NOLI and FILI books or we will have you executed in public by a firing squad.” Rizal virtually replied: “go fly a kite!” The theologians with authority and power over the civil government had Rizal put to death. In order to intimidate not only the brave thinkers in the minority, but also throughout the land – to frighten to death the cowardly and faithful believers in the majority.
And to think that today college educated men and women in this country would rather believe the theologians than be on the side of a mature and a courageous scientist like a Jose Rizal. He was, indeed, the first Filipino scientist who tried to generate the revolution of the mind to get the Filipino growing with self-respect as a people and to get the Philippines developing with dignity as a nation.
I ask: is it any wonder that in this 21st century we are known as the Sick Man of Asia? We live in a poor and backward country. Indeed, what have we Filipinos got to show for ourselves except, as a people, we can only be proud of the failures of our social and political and religious values under the great success of Christianity in the Philippines?
