“Have you ever wondered if all this mess that we are in is
outgrowths of the dysfunctional family relationships of our well-known couple."

For the sake of good governance, the management Association of the Philippines, (MAP) called on - “the religious leaders to speak out in thunderous language and condemn the moral degradation of our government bureaucracy, and we unequivocally join the Catholic bishops’ call for “communal action” to regain our moral compass and, with it, our nation’s dignity and self-respect.” Philippine Start Feb. 14, 2008
We are, indeed, a nation of childish morons. We call on the Catholic bishops to scold our rotten government officials who are the products of catholic schools, colleges, and universities in this only catholic country in Asia.
What exactly have these Catholic Bishops done during these past 400 years to teach the Filipino to have self-respect as a people and to have dignity as a nation? Why must our government officials continue the corrupt marriage between State and Church in our country?
The only thing necessary for evil to flourish is for good men and women to keep on submitting to the destructive beliefs taught to them during childhood years by the Catholic Church and other Christian churches. Such religious establishments continue to keep the Philippines poor spiritually, bankrupt morally, sick politically, insane socially, and backward economically.I said it before, I say it again: Look how we Filipinos love not our country, nor do we love fellow-Filipinos. We love only God up there as we were taught to hate this world and to hate one another down here? Poch Suzara
“Any system of religion that has in it anything that shocks the mind of a child, cannot be true.” Thomas Paine.Men and women who continue to have faith in what shocked them during childhood years in school have got to be the psycho-ceramics as called in the scientific term; or, in the layman’s language, – crackpots.

Bible authors had no knowledge of the planet earth being round, rotating on its own axis daily, and orbiting around the sun yearly. Why did an All-knowing God inspire the bible authors to be ignorant of the science of astronomy?
In the meantime, why should God tell us how to raise and educate our children when he Himself had drowned and suffocated His own? Before the Flood, the loving God Told Noah: “To hell with sinners; to hell with your neighbors. SAVE THE ANIMALS.” Poch Suzara
I love philosophy. It begins when one learns to doubt. Especially to doubt one’s faith in the existence of hogmas, pigmas, and dogmas.I love Philosophy as I hate theology. Philosophy teaches us HOW to think. Theology teaches us WHAT to believe. I remember as a little boy, with too much theology, I believed and had faith in a lot of religious hogwash! I am therefore grateful to philosophy: she saved not my soul, but saved instead my precious mind. Poch Suzara
We think of education as the transmission of a certain body of settled knowledge. On the contrary, education ought to be about the development of a scientific habit of mind. Indeed, learning as a process of lively analysis, and not a matter of deadly paralysis. It is sad and painful to see college educated men and women of this country carry a heavy load of useless guilt on their backs. They are intellectually crippled by its destructive weight. It is, in this way, that they readily serve a silly divinity up there rather than play a role in the development of our country for its growth and maturity down here. Poch Suzara
To enjoy success in our sick society, it is not enough to be educated as a faithful believer. One must also be selfish, greedy, stupid, insane, and especially, God-fearing. Indeed, in order to succeed in our sick society, one must first prove that the reptilian part of your brain is much bigger than the mammalian part. Our society has always been ruled by sick reptiles in the shape of sick politicians in cahoots with the sick theologians.
In the meantime, we Filipinos have yet to discover that happiness can only be discovered by promoting happiness to other Filipinos.
Sadly, however, in this poor and backward country, we are only happy whenever we remember there is a better world to come after we are all dead! Poch Suzara
According to the science of Genetics, all people are 99.9 per cent identical. Yet people hate and kill each other for being different and that difference is often due to faith in God.If God, however, could not remove stupid religion out of this world, what assurances have we that God already removed stupid religion in the next world if, in fact, there is any? Poch Suzara
Wow Wow Wee! Poch Suzara
We atheists hate war because of its death and destruction. War solves nothing. We atheists recognize the absolute finality of death. We do not believe in the existence of a next happy life in a heaven with God, nor do we recognize the existence of a next painful life in a hell with the devil. We atheists believe in peace on earth and goodwill to all men, women, and children. That’s all.
In the meantime, atheism may be negative in character. But it is neither destructive nor constrictive. When atheism is used to eradicate fear and superstition and its detrimental effects upon the minds of men and the hearts of women, atheism is a healthy approach not only for local tranquility, but mainly for global sanity.

As an atheist, I love this life. I love this world. Our world. I do not care for what’s nothing out there after I am dead. Neither do I give a hoot to what was nothing out there before I was born.If I allow one kind of fear to dominate me, all other kinds will dominate me also. I will have none of it. Fear is forever busy and needs to dominate victims. Poch Suzara
If God in heaven could not settle his sick troubles with the devil in hell, why should God settle our sick troubles with the devil on this earth? And how could any one be so childish as to believe that God’s help is just a prayer away? Poch Suzara
Whoever says: “If God does not exist, then everything is permitted,” has got to be a greedy, selfish, rotten idiot who never learned to appreciate his natural capacity to look at our troubled world with courage, understanding, love, or compassion. Poch Suzara
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord.” Isaiah 1:18 – a proposal made by the Lord in the Old Testament. In the New Testament, however, the same Lord proposed: “If any man come to me and hate not his father and mother, wife and children, and yea, his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26, Matt 10:34-37
Of all forms of power, the most destructive is the power of madness.We atheists are not into madness. What we do enjoy, however, is the power of thought. It is sinless. It is crimeless. Indeed, the power of thought is fearless and godless as it is priceless. Poch Suzara
