“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” 1 John 1:8.
It is insane to imagine a supernatural Being still bothered with stupid sin in this 21st century. Billions of Christians, Jews, and Muslims have already been born, sinned, and died on this earth since ages ago. Especially since His own son Jesus pretended to die on the cross to save the world from sin. Indeed, when Jesus resurrected from the dead, so have the deadly sins of the world resurrected along with Him. Poch Suzara
The fool said in his heart “There is no God.” Well, as a fool myself, I say, let’s assume for a moment that there is a God: so how come God is always omni-absent everywhere all the time; never omni-present anywhere at any time?
Well, more to the point I ask: what if there is a God, but no life after death? What if there is life after death, but no God? Either way, it still sucks, doesn’t it? Poch Suzara
Please Sir Ammianus, no need to insult them - wild beasts do not hate each other in God’s name, nor do they kill each other for his glory in heaven. If they do kill, however, it is for the sake of survival as their creator couldn’t give 2 hoots about their existence on this planet earth! Poch Suzara
Was God really that all-knowing? Did God have ample experiences so as to insist that he could remedy human affairs and improve global events?Instead of creating Adam and Eve, He should have first created for himself a mom and dad, a wife and in-laws, grandma and grandpa, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, uncles and aunties, and cousins. In this way, God need not have been lonely as a supernatural orphan living all alone in the vast universal darkness. In fact, with such divine relatives, God from up there could have shown real examples of love and affection for the human family to emulate down here. Poch Suzara
How dreadful, however, when Christ resurrected, so did the sins of the world also resurrected. Well, Christ did not go back to the drawing board; instead, he promised to return to finish the job. That was more than 2,000 years ago. Poch Suzara
The bible is a good book; unfortunately, good for nothing. Tens of millions of Christians have not read the bible. If they read it, however, and read verses that were confusingly incredible, if not incomprehensible, they called it “divine wisdom.” Sometimes, they even thought of it as the “Revealed Truth.” Poch Suzara
If God does not exist, everything is permitted? On the contrary, according to the priesthood industry, God exists and therefore everything is permitted. Look how the faithful believers always take advantage of the sacrament of forgiveness of sin available from God at any time. Specially those sinners and criminals elected into high government office.Such an arrangement has certainly generated wealth, power, and glory for the priesthood industry. After all they own the unregistered patent: they invented the concept of sin and eternal punishment that goes to hell with it. Poch Suzara
They would rather visit their dead loved-ones buried in the cemetery; but never, would they ever, even dream of visiting their loved-ones in heaven. In the first place, nobody knows whether their loved-ones made it to heaven; in the second place, nobody knows where heaven is located. Even the theologians do not know; though they know or rather pretend to know a lot about God, and that God is everywhere.In the meantime, what is immortality? It is the condition of dead people who refuse to believe they are already dead. Poch Suzara
It is interesting to observe how the religious morons try to prove the existence of God precisely by proving the existence of their own ignorance.
Listen closely to these two morons debating: I do not how God created the turtle’s shell. You do not know how God created the turtle’s shell. We both know, however, that God created the turtle’s shell.In other words, the existence of unsolved problems proves the existence of God.
To worship “God” therefore is to worship ignorance.
As an atheist, I ask: where is the love of reading as a lifetime adventure taught in the Old Testament? Where is the joy of free thought explained in the New Testament? Where is the definition of a decent man and a civilized woman written in the bible? Where is the definition of a happy home with happy children described in the bible? Where in the bible does it explain how to settle international disputes not with hate and war, but with the audacity of reason?

The Atheist, however, is drawn to this goal out of unselfish love and sympathy – which arise from his sense of human decency and intelligence. For the Atheist, the ultimate goal in life is human happiness by making others also happy.
The Christian, sad to say, is driven to it out of fear for his own eternal welfare. For him, helping his fellow man is not an end in itself, but only a means of saving himself from damnation.
The Atheist realizes that he could be mistaken about what his best for his fellow man; so he is willing to change his mind. He welcomes criticisms.
The Christian cannot admit that his ideas of right and wrong might be mistaken, because to doubt would, again, imperil his immortal soul.
Thus, highly-indoctrinated, the Christian is a blind, senseless, panic-stricken victim who must keep running until he drops. He has nothing useful going for him in this world except blind faith in lies, deceit, fraud, and deception especially about the next life in the better world to come after death. Poch Suzara
If Christianity had not dragged Jose Rizal down and get him executed for promoting the power of science and reason, the Philippines today would be the most developed and the most advanced country in Asia today. Especially in the race to achieve the higher standard of thought as a free people and the higher standard of independence as a free nation.
“It is our duty to follow the arid but peaceful and productive paths of science which lead to progress and thence to the unity desired and asked by Jesus Christ on the night of his sorrow.” Page 82

As a matter of fact, any president who needs help from a God who does not exists, deserves not to be the president of any Republic. Really, if God exists and he helps, God can do a better job than any president can. Indeed, if there is a God, we have no need of a Constitution, courts, lawyers, policemen or laws for the nation. In fact, we have no need for Churches, schools, colleges, and universities if God’s existence were real? In fact, we have no need of a president who admits that we, the people, did not vote for her, but that God put her in the presidential office of the Philippines. Poch Suzara
If we Pinoys do not see this piece of revealed truth, it is only because we have been indoctrinated to be always proud of our blind faith. Poch Suzara
If our children in school were taught that these bible promises are nothing but insults to the values of hard work under the perspiration of human intelligence, we would already be enjoying growth as a people and maturity as a nation centuries ago. Poch Suzara
If this were so, can any of you catholic bishops explain how come in this 21st the Philippines is still pretty much infested with: cheaters, thieves, drunkards, adulterers, fornicators, gamblers, robbers, murderers, kidnappers, looters, liars, swindlers, embezzlers, falsifiers, fixers, peddlers, betrayers, plunderers, losers, wife-beaters, child-abusers, perjurers, corrupt politicians, sex-starved priests, indeed, not to mention the never-ending supply of stupid sinners? Poch Suzara
In the meantime, our women, always under threat of eternal damnation have been mentally enslaved to obey the will of God. What, however, is so silly about this situation, is that nobody knows what the will of God commands. Only the priests, bishops, cardinals, and the Pope know the nature of those mysteries known as the Revealed Truth. Poch Suzara
Indeed, Catholics are not the masters of the Revealed Truth. They are, in fact, the victims as the Revealed Truth has yet to be revealed.
I was once a devout Catholic. Thank God not anymore. I excommunicated myself out of my church since I was 16 years old. Poch Suzara
In this only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century, when we Filipinos do something we are guilty of, we are instantly aware there is always our faith in a loving God who will readily forgive our sins and crimes and other variegated forms of stupidity. Poch Suzara
One solution to our country’s historical troubles: no more childish prayer for the sake of a childish theology. Only more science and technology.
Indeed, science and technology that should, as nothing else could, quickly extricate the Philippines up and out of its historical quagmire in fear and superstition, and indeed, in the belief in life after death in the kingdom of God. Poch Suzara
What, however, do the vast majority of poor and miserable Filipino citizens share in common? We all have faith in life after death to come in the kingdom of God in heaven. Poch Suzara
Consider the vast majority of the Filipinos taught always that it is better to believe than it is to know? That no matter what, there is always available from God the forgiveness of sins and crimes? Thus, kickbacks in public office, cronyism and nepotism, smuggling, lying, cheating, corruption, etc are not sins or crimes, but rather blessings from God with opportunities to forgive the fall of men. Poch Suzara
But then again, how come millions of spiritually poor and morally bankrupt Filipinos have always been able to serve not only two, but three masters: the Catholic Bishops, high government officials, and the foreigners who are now the legal owners of most of valuable property and assets comprising the Republic of the Philippines? Poch Suzara
Former President Joseph Estrada was charged, convicted, jailed, and pardoned by President Gloria M. Arroyo. If the Catholic Bishops were not allowed to meddle in matters of the State, there would be no such horror as the forgiveness of sin and crime in our insane government. Poch Suzara
In tbe meantime, no doubt, there is the power of blind faith. It comes from the power of blind ignorance. Poch Suzara

Isn’t it time to realize that the glory of creation lies in its consummation, not in its inception? And this consummation should not be global stupidity; precisely, it should be perfected humanity.
Indeed, we Filipinos are born ignorant, not stupid; we are made stupid not by an educational, but by the powerful commercial enterprises otherwise more known as Catholic schools, colleges, and universities.
“The greatest of intellect without religion in the heart, is only civilized barbarism, and disguised animalism.” BunsenWell, what about the senseless death of Jesus crucified on the cross here on earth? His own Father in heaven abetted and tolerated the carnage; or, was that just a theological barbarism, if not just an ecclesiastical animalism? Poch Suzara
Whoever slanders the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven: he carries the guilt of his sin forever. Mark 3:29Phooey on the Holy Spirit. Phooey on the forgiveness of sin. Phooey on the guilt of my sin forever. And for being such a bully, phooey on you too Mark! What did you, as a superstitious author of God, really know anything about what is holy and what is a spirit? In fact, what did you know anything about God? Poch Suzara
