Jesus is usually referred to as Jesus of Nazareth though he was born supposedly in Bethlehem. What’s remarkable about this discrepancy, however, is not the Jesus of this or that town, but that neither Nazareth nor Bethlehem got to be a Christian place as part of a Christian country. Israel is still a Jewish State.

Here, however, is something even more remarkable. In the State of Israel today there exist no school, college, or a university that teach Jesus is the Son of God who was crucified on a cross to redeem the souls of Filipinos in the Philippines. Poch Suzara

Jesus Crucified or Hang on a Tree

Was Jesus crucified on a cross or hang on a tree? Listen to the reports of the Inspired by God authors of the holy bible: This is Jesus, the King of the Jews. Matt.27:37 The King of the Jews. Mark 15:26 This is Jesus, the King of the Jews. Luke 23:38 Jesus of Nazareth the King of the Jews. John 19:19 One would think that there was only one cross, not four, and therefore only one inscription written on the cross. However, in the book of Acts 5:30, Jesus was not crucified on a cross, he was hanged on a tree. In Acts 10:39, it also reads: “And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, or in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree.” Again, in Acts 13:29, it reads: “ And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree. And laid him in a sepulcher.” And again, in 1 Peter 2:24, “Who on his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. In the meantime, St. Augustine was obviously not a critical bible reader. He wrote: “Nothing is to be accepted except the authority of scripture, since greater is that authority than all the powers of thehuman mind.” Poch Suzara

Created Equal

We are all created equal? Equal in what? I’d rather acknowledge that we are all equal by having been born of woman and that we owe our allegiance to motherhood, fatherhood, and to nationhood. Forget the priesthood. They are all a gang of religiously unequal bullies in business for themselves. Poch Suzara


“Piety,” Rizal wrote, “does not consists in prolonged kneeling, long prayers, large rosaries, soiled scapulars, but in good conduct, clean conscience, and upright thinking.”

No wonder after they had Rizal arrested, jailed, and publicly executed, his enemies - the Catholic Spanish Friars had to spread scandalous lies to the effect that Rizal retracted. That just hours before he was executed, he died as a penitent Catholic with a rosary in his hand and a scapular around his neck. Well, a blow-up photo during his execution at the Luneta displayed in the Manila City Hall today disproves such a silly claim.

Well, in this 21st century Philippines, despite the killing of our Jose Rizal, piety has not changed a bit. It is still about prolong kneeling, long silly prayers, large silly rosaries, soiled scapulars, and hypocritical conduct, corrupt conscience, and a religiously twisted mind devoid of thought.

In the meantime, ONLY IN THE PHILIPPINES, our national hero Jose Rizal was not a Filipino. He could not be a Filipino. Rizal was far too intelligent to be a Filipino. Indeed, Filipinos even in this already 21st century, believe that Rizal retracted. What an insult to Filipino intelligence. Poch Suzara

Life and Death

It is incredible how some people, specially priests, claim to have knowledge about the nature of death. As if they already have knowledge about the nature of life.

Except perhaps that life is a sexually transmitted disease with the mortality rate of 100 per cent, what else do we really know of the nature of life? Where does sexual desires come from that produces life in the first place? Why are we here? Is there a meaning to life? Who knows? All we know is that life stops. But whether life has meaning, even the inspired bible authors of God did not know why life stops. Poch Suzara

The Spirit of Liberty

I write always in the spirit of liberty, especially in the possibility that I could be wrong. My thoughts, however, are always subject to change or emendation. My doubts are always tentative, never dogmatic. Show me evidences where I am wrong and I will make the necessary adjustments or discard my doubts down the tube.

As an atheist, I have neither faith nor a system of beliefs. Knowing is always more reliable than just believing. My faith lies in human intelligence. I don’t give a hoot for divine benevolence. Poch Suzara

Religious Fears

Most people hardly know that the reason they live a life filled with religious fears, it is because they themselves have not read the bible. Instead, like a bunch of mentally-retarded believers, they would rather inspire others to read and interpret the bible for them. The bible is a good book; unfortunately, good for nothing.

Look at what bible messages have done for mankind during these past 2,000 years in the Western world in general, and during the past 400 years in the Philippines in particular? Far from the Age of Critical Analysis, we Filipinos are still living in the Age of Mental Paralysis. Poch Suzara

In Southern California

I lived and worked in Los Angeles, Southern California, for 12 years. 1967 - 1979 There were then some 3 Filipino associations existing. Each trying to bring down the other owing to petty squabbles., if not childish jealousies. When I left after 12 years, there was some 140 different Filipino associations. Today 2008 there are more than 200 different Filipino associations each busy finding faults about the Filipino way of life in the USA. Thus, Filipinos disunited as Filipino-Americans. Nobody wants to be the Indian in such association, especially to pursue its goals and aims. Everybody, however, wants to be the chief. And so, Filipino associations are formed for the simple reason that its Filipino president wants to be famous carrying around with him business cards that read: president. In the meantime, of all the Asian-Americans in the United States, the Filipino-Americans are the most disheveled, disorganized, and full of mutual hatred and envy leading each other to a bridge that goes nowhere.

Joys of Life

The joys of life in this world are subject to birth, growth, death, and decay. How utterly silly of God not to protect such joys so that we may together exist forever alongside the existence of our deathless, if not utterly worthless – silly immortal souls. Poch Suzara

Barking idiot

If an idiot barks at you, you only have to bark louder and the idiot backs off. Living in a sick society, sometimes, angry reptilian rudeness is more effective than gentle mammalian politeness. Hello you psuedo-Pinoy psuedo-atheists – you gang of sick idiots! You people are only good at barking. Poch Suzara

God is like Dust Existing Everywhere

"Ashes to ashes, dust to dust", a phrase in Christian burial service, used sometimes to denote the total finality of the corporeal body, thereby contrasting the temporary nature of worldly existence to the eternity of the spirit. It is based on scriptural texts such as "Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return" (Genesis 3:19), and "I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee" (Ezekiel 28:18) Well, If dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return, and if God created thou in his own image and likeness, then God must be made of dust too. No wonder dust is like God. It is existing here, there, and everywhere. Poch Suzara Twitter@ Facebook# Google#

God Lied

In the Old Testament, after God created the world and everything in it, he said: “it was good.” In the New Testament, however, God said: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not with him.” John 2:15. In the Old Testament, God lied. Poch Suzara

St. Augustine and Free Will

“When, therefore, man lives according to man, not according to God, he is like the devil,” wrote St. Augustine. An individual, according to St. Augustine, has little power to influence his or her predetermined fate and is entirely dependent upon God for salvation. So, I ask St. Augustine: what is the use of the free will as a gift from God? Poch Suzara

The Bible

The bible repeatedly exhorts readers to fear God: “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” “Blessed is everyone that feareth the Lord.” “Fear Him, which after he hath power to cast into hell; yea. I say unto you, Fear Him.” Indeed, the bible even encourages the frightened readers to fear the bible itself. Thus, the majority of the religious believers are not really that familiar with the contradictions, absurdities, inconsistencies, and obscenities that run through the bible from cover to cover. In fact, only the few are conversant with the fact that there are about 450 different and conflicting versions of the bible sold in the market today. Poch Suzara

A Great Dream

I had this great dream the other night. I ardently hope it will become a reality one day. Thousands of my Jesus freak classmates and schoolmates in La Salle received this text message saying: “Poch Suzara died yesterday and was cremated today. With his last breath, he cried out: Screw you religious morons who with your silly Son of God Jesus made a silly religious mockery out of my beautiful country.” Poch Suzara

Allan Greenspan

Alan Greenspan was, for a great many years, a true believer in the god of market fundamentalism. The great man that he is, he recently admitted publicly, that he was wrong. The former Federal Reserve chairman, said that the current financial crisis had uncovered a flaw in how the free market capitalism works that shocked him.

He told the House Oversight Committee that his belief that banks would be more prudent in their lending practices because of the need to protect their stockholders had proved to be wrong.

This is like admitting that the Ayn Rand philosophy for the selfish, greedy, stupid, and insane works but works only for those who are precisely greedy, selfish, stupid, and insane.

He admitted that he had made a “mistake” in believing that banks operating in their self-interest would be enough to protect their shareholders and the equity in their institutions.

He said that he had found “a flaw in the model that I perceived is the critical functioning structure that defines how the world works.”

He headed the nation’s central bank for 18.5 years, said that he and others who believed lending institutions would do a good job of protecting their shareholders are in a “state of shocked disbelief.”

Bertrand Russell wrote: “No, the greatest men have not been “serene.” They have had, it is true, an ultimate courage, a power of creating beauty where nature has put only horror, which may, to a petty mind, appear like serenity. But their courage has had to surpass that of common men, because they have seen deeper into the indifference of nature and the cruelty of man. To cover up these things with comfortable lies is the business of cowards; the business of great men is to see them with inflexible clarity, and yet to think and feel nobly. And in the degree in which we can all be great, this is the business of each one of us.”

In this 21st century, Allan Greenspan is one such great man in the world today. He will yet change the filthy ways of filthy Americans who became filthy rich in the filthy way. Poch Suzara

Capitalism Depends on Greed

Free market capitalism is based on greed. That's the engine that makes it work. The entire basis of capitalism is that everyone acts in his or on her own self-interest, to try to get as much as he or she possibly can. It is what's supposed to keep the players constructive competing against each other. Wrong and it has, in fact, proved to be destructive than most shallow-minded economists acknowledged.

Free market capitalism has many failings. The most obvious is the tendency of wealth to concentrate more and more into fewer and fewer greedy hands over time. Another is that gullibility and lack of education that allow the millions of people to be victimized by others. Also, there's the unspoken collusion that allows, for example, corporations to jack up prices, ensuring higher profits for itself. Greed is not the failure of capitalism. It is the success of it.

Now if we truly believe that all men are all created equal, and that there must be justice for all, there ought to be a law that says no individual should be worth more than ten million dollars in cash and assets; and no corporation can be worth more than one billion dollars in cash and in assets. Except for the Research institutes that are in the business to find cures for human and animal diseases. They can be worth one hundred billion dollars. Thus, the hundreds of trillions of dollars combined owned by the few individuals, corporations, and churches ought to be dismantled and distributed to billions of people according to the new law that I am proposing.

The historical business that we can continue to hate and kill each other in order to feed the few greedy and to hell with the millions of the needy has been rendered obsolete if we were to live in peace and harmony on this earth in the centuries to come.

It is time to explore not only the deeper nature of the world, but also, especially, to discover higher the world of nature. Poch Suzara

Illusions and Delusions

Studying theology during my younger years was not so much as to know God, but to find out more about how the ignorant theologians managed to become experts in the business of promising to deliver illusions and delusions in order to support and maintain our sick society. Just exactly like the ignorant politicians in the government. They are also experts in the business of promising to deliver illusions and delusions for everybody. Indeed, in this world, if we were ruled by lies and deceptions, we only have to thank the ignorant theologians always in cahoots with the ignorant politicians in the business of telling lies and deceptions for their own benefit, if not profit.

Catholicism is not a way of life; but a way of death. It has been and still is big business for the priesthood industry. It’s wealth, power, and glory, not to mention the Vatican bank worth in the trillion of dollars are proof enough that Catholicism has always been big business in God’s name on earth as it is in heaven.

So What

So what if Darkness is the absence of light. My point as an atheist is that God himself was a not a bright being as he did not illuminate anything around him. He obviously existed in total darkness. If God was a brilliant light unto himself, he need not have created the sun to light up the darkness around Him. Poch Suzara


The truth hurts? No, it does not. It never did. In fact, the truth must first be discovered and then revealed before it can hurt any one. What, in fact, has been hurting during these past many great centuries has been the Revealed Truth. It has never been revealed. Poch Suzara

Bertrand Russell

In 1912, at the beginning of his book PROBLEMS OF PHILOSOPHY, Russell asked: “Is there any knowledge in the world which is so certain that no reasonable man could doubt it?” In 1948 on the last page of his HUMAN KNOWLEDGE book, he came to the conclusion that “all human knowledge is uncertain, inexact, and partial.” Indeed, to criticize Russell’s philosophical works is an exercise in futility. For, it is doubtful whether Russell has made any great mistake, and where he has been wrong, he has spoilt the fun of future generation of philosophers by pointing out the errors himself. For more, please read BERTRAND RUSSELL THE PASSIONATE SCEPTIC, a biography by Allan Wood published in 1957. Poch Suzara

The Bible

The bible may be holy, but it is filled with inconsistent baloney. There is neither harmony nor uniformity as the authors contradict each other. The Gospel of Matthew tells us that Jesus was an aristocrat descended from David via Solomon. The Gospel of Luke, however, tells us that Jesus was from much more humble stock. The Gospel of Mark says that Jesus was born to a poor carpenter.

At his birth, Jesus was visited by kings according to Matthew, but according to Luke, he was visited by shepherds.

At his death, Jesus, according to the Gospel of Mark and Matthew tell us that his last words were “My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?” But according to Luke, Jesus said, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit,” and in John Jesus simply said, “It is finished.”

In his great book, the Age of Reason, by Tom Paine, one of the greatest among the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, wrote: “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon, than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness, that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.”

As a bible reader myself during these past twenty years, I am quite conversant with bible messages. They have more to do not with the way of life, but the way towards death. Sadly and unfortunately, even the bible admits that “The dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.” Eccl. 9:5

Again, I say to one and all: please read your bible. It is where we can all duly discover the foundation of why we are, precisely, the Sick Man of Asia. Poch Suzara

The Holocaust

A few days ago I forwarded by email to hundreds of friends and relatives pictures showing the horrors of what the Nazis under Hitler (the Holocaust) did to the Jews in Germany during World War 2. The horrors of it all – man’s inhumanity to man. What many of you do not know, however, is that Hitler was raised and educated as a Catholic in Austria. He hated the Jews. In His book MEIN KAMPF, Hitler wrote on page 65: “Hence today I believe I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jews, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.” During that war, the buckle belt worn around the waist by Hitler’s army read: “ Gott Mit Uns.” God with us. It is incredible how Pope Pius the 12th then with God's power never lifted a finger to stop Hitler from gassing the Jews to death. Estimated at 6,000,000 of them. The Pope could have excommunicated Hitler. On the contrary, the Catholic hierarchy loved what was being done to the Christ’s killers – the Jews. Today Pope Benedict the 16th Ratzinger wants Nazi sympathizing Pope Pius the 12th to be named as a good saint. Unfortunately, a good for nothing saint as all saints are – good for nothing. Poch Suzara
