Is a Fetus a Person

Is a fetus a person? A person, however, is one who has free will. A fetus has no free will. When we were once ourselves a fetus in mom’s womb, did we have the free will to choose whether we wanted to be born as a boy person or a girl person in this world? But then again if a fetus were a person, how come when a miscarriage happens, nobody in the priesthood industry gives the fetus the sacrament of Extreme Unction; or attends to its funeral service? Are the souls of the fetus remembered during All Saints's Day? Now I am told that a fetus nevertheless has the potential to be a thinking person with a free will? What about the would-be mother and would-be father of a fetus? Are they thinking persons while they are mating? But for a man to penetrate a woman’s sexual organ, all the blood in his brain must travel down to his sexual organ in order to get an erection. Solidified blood as it were. The same chemistry happens with the woman. Sexual arousal makes all the blood in her brain travel down to her reproductive system and she also, exactly like her man, becomes utterly brainless while in the act of propagating the human species. Never mind the ridiculous physical contortions that a man and his woman must assume for the sake of starting a family. It is illegal to kill a group of cells called a fetus inside the womb. It is called “abortion.” It is, however, legal to let them be born, let them grow up a bit, and then kill them with malnutrition. In the meantime, politicians, doctors, priests, and indeed husbands all have the right and the free will to have sex with a woman; but she, however, has neither the right nor the free will to practice family planning and birth control? What despicable nonsense is this? As a matter of biological fact, men are the ones fertile every minute of the month. The women are fertile only two or 3 days of the month. It should therefore be the men, not the women, who should be more involved with the responsibility of family planning and birth control in our already sick and overpopulated society. Overpopulation means that the number of people in a given society surpasses the economic basis for providing them with adequate food, housing, meaningful education, and harmless entertainment. We already have more than 10 million persons called children living under subhuman conditions in the streets of our major cities? In the meantime, three ( 3 ) babies are born every minute in the Philippines. That transforms into 1,500,000 babies born every year. Many of them abandoned by their father and neglected by their mother. The Roman scholar Pliny, the Elder, said: “What we do to our children, they will do to society.” Well, in this 21st century, take a good look at our sick and corrupt society! If God himself practiced family planning and birth control measures, why is there so much religious pressure for Filipinos to emulate God who only had one son with Mary? Instead of being childish as a people frightened of morality, why don’t we grow up as a nation and begin to discover morality? This business of paraphrasing the bible: “Forgive me, Father, for I know not what I am doing” – can only be the confession of a man born ignorant, not stupid; but made stupid by indoctrination! If centuries past were to be identified by their dominant characteristics, like the Age of Reason or the Age of Enlightenment, how come in this 21st century Philippines, ours is still the Age of Fear and Guilt?

A Thought from a Thinking American

We hate to win wars. The more wars ongoing here, spreading there, and developing anywhere – the better for our industrial economy. In fact, the spread of terrorism, ( it used to be called communism ) the better for American capitalism. The exception of course is Chinese communism. China has introduced to the world a better economic system that works without violence and war – the merger of capitalism with communism. Unlike American capitalism the way we make wealth and the way we make war are profitably related and inextricably connected. In the meantime, we continue to ask our soldiers ( our very own sons and daughters ) to be shot at and for many to be killed. To have the courage to die in battle, but not to have the courage to question the insane policies of our government of the industrialists, by the militarists, and for the elitists. The historical scandal in America is not what is immoral or illegal; but what is moral and legal. Super financial fortunes in America have been built not on “free enterprise” but on the infectious greed of crony capitalism. In this connection, in America, by and large, there is hardly such a thing as “national interests.” There is only the - “corporate interests.” In the meantime, how can there be Americans in the great cities of America who are hungry, homeless, and living under stress not knowing where the next meal will come from to feed their children and still pay their rent? It is time for a radical change. It is time to retool our industrial capacity from war economy to peace economy. It is time to focus on the whole of humanity, especially at human poverty. War as a way to enrich the few and to keep ourselves strong with our “Industrial-Military-University-Complex” superpower of the world has become obsolete. Through the increasing power of knowledge, it is time to manufacture more engines for construction rather than engines of destruction. Defense spending creates jobs only for the military but not for society. It does not even buy national security. Military spending causes unemployment, inflation, and resource depletion, not to mention the accumulation of sophisticated military weapons that grow to such a complexity that approach national insanity. Indeed, if the lethal capacity of the nuclear arsenals of America and its allies were broken down into tons of TNT, each man, woman, and child alive in the world today would be represented by something like 4 tons of explosive power. Some of our individual H-Bombs represent so much destructive power that they each total more tons of dynamite power than all the bombs dropped by all sides during World War Two. There are, however, only two things that can be done with military weapons – use it for destruction; or, store them until they become obsolete and then eventually scrapped while American school buildings and the images of America as the land of the free and home of the brave are rotting away. The party is over. It is time to clean up the mess. The days of military lies and deceptions are over. It is time to achieve success not as Republicans or Democrats or Westerners or Southerners or Easterners or Asians, Latinos, or African Americans, but simply as - united Americans. It is time for America to be a genuine super power. A super power that has no demons to kill, or villains to destroy. Indeed, it is time for America to have more real friends around the world by having no more enemies. If we must fight enemies, let us fight them not on the battlefield, but with the power of ideas. Love is always better than hate because in love there is peace and unity. In hate, there is only disharmony. Our national interests should be wholly in harmony with those of humanity. The Media is no longer our media. It is no longer the media that promotes the power of knowledge. The US government in cahoots with the Industrial-Military-University Complex now owns and controls the media. The media like the advertising industry does not persuade. They manipulate. Look how the media succeeds in reducing American citizens to idiots. Watching TV five hours a day can only be the way of life of idiots. From corporate advertisers to political punditry, from boards of education to the entertainment programmers, their goal is to keep us American citizens thoughtless, if not frightened. Forget freedom of the press. It belongs to him who owns one. Indeed, we have yet to pierce through the untruths being cast by the mainstream media that benefits not the nation, but only the corrupt corporations. What is the use of the freedom of expression to people who have been frightened of the future? So that they may only prefer the comforts of political lies or prefer the promises of religious deceits from the powers-that-be? Our problems, in fact, the world’s problems, are no longer local. It is global. Everything in this world is interrelated with everything else in a delicate balance and complex web of interrelationship. We are all -- each and every one of us, actors and spectators in the drama of life on this small blue planet whose continued existence is in doubt. We are often told that America has the best system of education in the world. Well, it is time to prove it. Let us install educated American leaders to run our government. A government that puts greater value on higher education above everything else. Education that explores deeper the world of nature and discovers higher the nature of our world. It is incredible how the “educated” US Congressmen would entertain the impeachment of a US president on matters of sexual behavior, but would not impeach him for endangering the lives of American children by welfare reform, or by neglecting its senior citizens, or for violating international law in bombing foreign countries, or for allowing hundreds of thousands of children to die as a result of economic sanctions. In the meantime, poverty, disease, illiteracy, and overpopulation in the world cannot be redressed until America and her allies re-direct its resources toward constructive humanitarian aims. It is time to beat swords into plowshares. In his great book THE THIRD WAVE published in 1980, author Alvin Toffler concluded: “The responsibility for change, therefore, lies with us. We must begin with ourselves, teaching ourselves not to close our minds prematurely to the novel, the surprising, the seemingly radical. This means fighting off the idea-assassins who rush forward to kill any new suggestion on grounds of its impracticality, while defending whatever now exists as practical, no matter how absurd, oppressive, or unworkable it may be. It means fighting for freedom of expression – the right of people to voice their ideas, even if heretical. Above all, it means starting this process of reconstruction now, before further disintegration of existing political systems sends the forces of tyranny jackbooting through the streets, and makes impossible a peaceful transition in the twenty-first century Democracy. If we begin now, we and our children can take part in the exciting reconstitution not merely of our obsolete political structures, but of civilization itself. Like the generation of the revolutionary dead, we have a destiny to create.”

No doubt, the theologians have been inventive; unfortunately, inventive in fantasy, never in reality. The theologians have yet to succeed to explain the unknown by making it more known. The main study that entails the subject of theology is God. Till now, however, even the theologians themselves have not the foggiest notion of who or what God is! But they have gumption enough to declare that the nature of God’s existence is really a mystery. Poch Suzara

Religious Criminals

Millions of minds and hearts are being distorted, and twisted with false beliefs in our schools, colleges, and universities. All for the sake of having faith in the Lord and that there is a better world to come after death.

I ask: what reasons have we to be polite to these religiously idiotic criminals responsible for such evil horrors?

And what reasons have we to blame each other for the horrors that is keeping our country poor and backward? The growth and development of any country are the results of decent minds and decent hearts. Poch Suzara

Is God Good or Bad

Is there any of you faithful believers out there who has ever met a Filipino who got to be filthy rich for believing that God is bad?

Millions of Filipinos, however, are filthy poor for believing that God is good. Poch Suzara

Free Will

Billions of little monsters are living inside your body at this very moment. Sooner or later, they will eventually kill you whether you like it or not, whether you have free will or not.

So God gifted you with a free will. So what? God gifted germs, bacteria, and viruses with no free will, and yet these little monsters are free to get you buried in a Catholic cemetery one day soon. Poch Suzara

The Bible

The bible says that Jesus suffered and died on the cross for our sins and to bring us closer to God in heaven. 1 Peter 3:18

Well, if God were already Omni-present and therefore here, there, and already everywhere, what is God doing in heaven out there? How come God is never down here? Poch Suzara


Man invented divinity. That is why divinity is a shallow mystery. The real nature of man is a wider perplexity, if not a deeper complexity, especially at promoting, perpetually, human stupidity. Poch Suzara

Afraid of Death

Those who are afraid to die are afraid to live. Those who are afraid to live need God.
To believe, however, that after death we can still be afraid or, as the case may be, - be unafraid, is to pretend that we can still be able to see without eyes, to hear without ears, to taste without a palate, to smell without nose, to feel without hands or skin, and indeed, that we shall still be able to think with our brain already rotting away in a Catholic cemetery.

“The good life,” Bertrand Russell wrote, “is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.” To me, in my simplicity, as I am approaching my own death, I can only say to the laws of nature: “Go ahead, kill me, and when you do, rest assured, I will die standing up with my self-respect and dignity, and not kneeling ashamed of my sense of humanity.” Poch Suzara

Fear of the Lord

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Prov. 1:7. On the contrary, fear is beginning of timidity. As to why a Lord would have this desperate need to be feared by any one only makes him utterly unworthy as a Lord to begin with. For my part, I once knew a Lord. I never feared him. Unlike my silly teachers in school, he never threatened me. In fact, I never even met this Lord personally. But I have learned to love him and still do love him as he saved not my silly soul, but saved, instead, my precious mind. I read most of his delicious writings and I still have his books as my bedside companion. His name: Lord Bertrand Russell. Oh yes, much better and more exciting than sexual protoplasm is intellectual orgasm. There is nothing quite like in all of nature. Poch Suzara Twitter@ Google# Atheist# Facebook#

The Devil

I take my hat off to the devil. He didn’t have to impregnate a virgin to produce a son on this earth to be crucified on a wooden stick in order for him to win millions of damned wet souls to quench the fires of hell. Indeed, the same hell that God originally created for the devil and his Fallen Angels all gifted too with free will, not to mention the most ticklish part of this divine creation - God gifted as well all the Talking Serpent to freely bring down one of our own kind - Adam and Eve - our first parents

I said it before, I say it again: Fuck divinity. Fuck deviltry. Fuck the Talking Serpent. Fuck FREE WILL. Poch Suzara

Earning a Living

Go to any school, college, or university in the Philippines – none will explore with you what it is precisely that in life you creatively enjoy doing. Indeed, the tragedy in most men’s life is not earning a living at precisely what they creatively already enjoy doing. Poch Suzara


Most women are ignorant enough not to realize that motherhood takes years of grade school, high school, and college to prepare. Every woman, regardless of her age, social class, academic achievement needs to know that to bring forth a child into this world is a serious responsibility, especially for fatherhood under the guidance of a decent nationhood. Poch Suzara

The Religious Morons

The religious morons would readily notice that more and more women are getting pregnant in our poor and sick society. They hardly care to notice also that 3 babies are born every minute of the day or 1.5 million babies are born every year in our country. These babies are the result of corruption by would-be mothers and would-be fathers who hardly have any idea of what it means to raise and educate children in our sick and corrupt world. Of course, we have been frightened to call it “faith in God;” though in reality, it is really having faith in “blind faith.” Poch Suzara

Loved Children

Loved children born into this world have better chances of promoting peace on earth and goodwill to all men. Otherwise, unloved children will be among the best recruits for the army and navy and the air force of most countries, especially that of the military organization of the United States of America. Poch Suzara

Christian Beliefs

According to a Christian belief I was once dead in my mother’s womb. God, however, gave me life so that I could be born alive in this world. Later, however, God will put me back to death so that I can, again, have life in heaven with God; or, as the case may be, be in hell with the devil. Free will is a myth. Poch Suzara

Jesus and Death

Just before he resurrected Lazarus, Jesus likened death to sleep.—John 11:11-14. Which brings up another question, if Jesus best friend Lazarus was going to enjoy eternal happiness with God in a perfect place called heaven, for Christ’ sake, why bring him back to a rotten life of sin in this rotten world?

In the meantime, the same bible clearly admits: “For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward for the memory of them is forgotten.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5) Poch Suzara

The Poor

The priesthood industry continue to insist that “God loves the poor.” That even the Son of God Jesus chose to be born poor in a poor family of a poor village because His father loves poverty. Of course Jesus was a poor man. He never earned a living. He never worked in his life. Moreover, Jesus failed to provide knowledge so much need by man to enable him to shape his course through work to achieve a healthy and a wealthy life. Jesus never explained constructive relations between employer and employee, nor how to educate children, nor how to preserve health, nor how to earn a living, nor how to prevent war, poverty, and suffering. Indeed, Jesus neglected to instruct his listeners on how to live creatively and happily. His knowledge of the world was less than that of a high school expelled student out of De La Salle Univrsity in the Philippines. Poch Suzara


Jesus, on the cross, cried out: “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34

To think that this is the same Father of Jesus who never legally married his mother. Jesus was not a legitimate son. His own Mother of God did not know what she was doing. Poch Suzara


All kinds of causes are submitted to explain why Filipinos are still wallowing in poverty as a people; and the Philippines still economically way behind as a nation. No one seems to have the guts nor the gumption to openly and publicly declare the truth except yours truly. I said it before, I say it again: Poverty in the Philippines is simply due to, if not because of, one great evil – “Christianity.” Poverty comes from poor minds and poor hearts. Christianity has always dominated the Filipino mind and the Filipino heart. Indeed, according to Christian values and beliefs, the Filipinos are better off poor and suffering and malnourished in this life. In this way, we Filipinos could be rich and happy and well-nourished in the life after death with God in heaven. Poch Suzara

Rizal wrote:

“Where are the youth who will consecrate their golden hours, their dreams, and their enthusiasm to the welfare of their native land? Where are the youth who will generously pour out blood to wash away so much shame, so much crime, so much abomination? Pure and spotless must the victim be! Where are you youth, who will embody in yourselves the vigor of life that has left our veins, the purity of ideas that has been contaminated in our brains, the fire of enthusiasm that has been quenched in our hearts? We await you, O Youth! Come, for we await you!” Ever since the death of Rizal by public execution in 1896, the history of the Filipino people has been the daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly struggle to deny the power of the human mind with knowledge, and to reject the beauty of the human heart with wisdom. Indeed, to be not sane, or be culturally constructive; but only to be insane, and traditionally destructive. Thanks to teachers in our schools, and to professors in our colleges and universities – millions of Filipinos have yet to learn to substantiate the words of Jose Rizal: “I would like the Filipinos to be brilliant, enlightened, intelligent, and progressive.” Sadly, even the Knights of Rizal have been busy promoting social and political insanity in this God-forsaken country. Especially for the sake of preserving in this faith-soaked 21st century – the beliefs and values of Christianity. In this country, when one Pinoy suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When millions of Pinoys suffer from a confusion complicated by a delusion as inspired by corruption, it is called Christianity. Poch Suzara

If Rizal Died as a Penitent Catholic

If Rizal retracted and died not as heretic, but as a penitent catholic, how come he was never given a catholic burial? Rizal wrote: “Some write history to flatter or lower their enemies, others to support religious opinions with facts which they mutilate to suit their convenience.” Poch Suzara

I hate religion. It is the story of mankind mired in mindless sin and senseless crime and thoughtless violence, war, and death. Religion has also been and still is the story of human misery. Divinity who is the ultimate mystery, is never, in the ultimate analysis, an embraceable entity. And yet religion teaches us to love, worship, and adore such a divinity as a heavenly perplexity inextricably mixed with ecclesiastical complexity for the sake of nothing except to promote nothing but a sick society. Poch Suzara


Medicine, and its ability to keep people alive who would otherwise be dead, is an amazing achievement of science.
Sadly, silly religion, to this day, continue to struggle against the growth and development and maturity of science – the real savior of our world.
For my part, I love science. It has exposed the mystery of religion as something of a triviality, a mediocrity, an everlasting mockery chasing after infinity. Poch Suzara

Our Greatest Good

Our greatest good may come from our deepest suffering.
This is sacred hogwash mixed with holy cow dung. What if your suffering comes from religious belief that was imposed upon you since childhood years? And it turns out that the greatest good can only be found after you are dead mindlessly and buried in a Catholic cemetery resting in peace thoughtlessly? Poch Suzara

Hating One Another

Hating one another is common in theology, not in psychology, because in psychology there is the possibility of discovering the harmony of rationality. In theology, however, there is only the complexity of imbecility masquerading as faith in the invisible complexity of a mysterious divinity. Poch Suzara

I am Told

I am told that God created the human brain. But which part of the brain – the mammalian part or the reptilian part? How odd of God to have created the animal part in anything that is already human.

In the meantime, if dogma is what you die for, and faith is what you kill for, then reason is what I live for. Indeed, reason is what makes me think – the difference between what makes me human and no longer an animal. Poch Suzara

My Ancestors

How many ancestors would a person have - assuming no interbreeding, 24 generations in the past? The answer – 16,777,216 ancestors. The real issue for me, however, is not who among my ancestors made it to heaven; or, who among my ancestors ended up punished in hell; but why did God have to create in his own image and likeness all those millions of Catholic ancestors of mine during these past centuries just to finally produce me, a die-hard atheist, in this century? So I am in the minority. So what? I am still an atheist! Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

Religion as Big Business

The religious morons, the pathetic bobos, the stupid fatheads, and the ecclesiastical wimps are among the kind of victims that make organized religions such a lucrative business in this poor and backward country.

Indeed, Brother Mike Velarde of El Shaddai, Brother Eddie Villaneuva of Jesus is Lord Movement, and Eli Soriano of Dating Daan are very wealthy religious leaders today in our sick society. Imagine these panderers among the few rich and the famous operating the business of selling Jesus only for decades as compared to the wealth, power, and glory of the Catholic church and Iglesia Ni Cristo operating the business of selling Jesus for centuries in this poor and backward country.

In the Philippines, Christianity has never been a religion. It has always been and still is an industry. Overshadowing the minor religious corporations in the Philippines is the major one - the Catholic church - the owner of the richest and most powerful bank in the world today - the Vatican Bank! Poch Suzara

The Chicken

Why did the chicken cross the road? Perhaps, it was dumbstruck enough not to have grasped the truth that all roads in the end lead to death and decay.
For my part, on either side of my road, I’d rather leave it as a better pathway for others to improve further upon to inspire all those after me on the same road to live the good life – one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Poch Suzara

Catholic Bishops

No one, but no one, is happy and contented with life on this earth. The rich and poor alike have their measure of troubles, if not their level of problems. Even the Catholic bishops are bored and unhappy while attending to things spiritual. To get some excitement into their religiously empty, if not spiritually, barren lives - they meddle with things sexual, if not menstrual. And this is for no reason at all except to make a nuisance of themselves to bring more excitement into our sick society. Poch Suzara

Philippine Media

The Philippine media could mold public opinion to admire science rather than religion; to love philosophy rather than theology. To know and not just to believe. Indeed, the media could very well promote all that is creative for our society, and so diminish the impulses and desires that center round Filipinos getting more selfish, greedy, stupid, and insane. And yet, Filipino editors and columnists of newspapers and magazines; teachers and professors of schools, colleges and universities; producers and directors of the movie and television industry - all share a common interests together in this country: - they all try their utmost best to keep all of their readers and students and audiences as thoughtless as ever so as not to displease the Catholic Bishops enjoying theological and political control of the Filipino way of life in the Philippines. And to think that these are the same Bishops who are the experts with the Revealed Truth that has yet to be revealed.

In the meantime, thanks to daily mediocrity behind the power of media always in cahoots with government and the church faithfully, we are aimless as a people and rudderless as a nation. Poch Suzara
