Adolf Hitler

Hitler was an insane victim of his own heroes – such heroes like the German philosopher Nietzsche who wrote about the super race of men to rule the world.
In the world of philosophy, Nietzsche was a disgrace, not a grace. He believed not in world peace through love, but in world war through hate. Too bad war has never, as yet, solved anything except the motivation for the declaration of a next war.
If you want peace, prepare for war? On the contrary, if you want peace, prepare for peace! Poch Suzara

As an Atheist

As an atheist I have no interest in the system of reward or punishment. I am happy enough living my life without any sense of heaven as a place of reward or hell as a place of punishment. My sense of morality has nothing to do with pleasing divine grace. I am more interested with the growth and maturity via common decency of the human race. Poch Suzara

Happiness

If happiness depends upon the power of thought, then I dare say that most people suffer from unhappiness. Especially as they are consistently thoughtless, if not perpetually mindless, not to mention perennially heartless. Poch Suzara

Jesus in Our Hearts

In grade school, high school, and in college at De la Salle University nothing was put into our hearts except the love for Jesus who preached: - “love not this world, neither the things that are in the world.” It explains why we do not love our country, and why, indeed, we are a nation of failures and losers still believing and waiting for the Second Coming of the Lord. Poch Suzara

Poor Filipino People

How could we Filipinos ever mature as a people and develop as a nation when we have been taught to believe that there is a better country to go to after birth, and that there is a better world to come after death? Indeed, what can be expected of a people enjoying only the freedom of Christianity, by Christianity, and for Christianity? Poch Suzara

Holy Books

One may know all the messages written in the bible, or the Quran, or in the Talmud, but continue to remain shamelessly ignorant of science and the scientific way of thinking. After all, what exactly do sacred writings have anything to do with the growth and maturity of the human mind and heart that’s so much needed to straighten the mess out of this God-forsaken world due to stupid religion? Poch Suzara

I love Bertrand Russell

I love Bertrand Russell not for turning mathematics upside-down and logic inside-out, but for never threatening me with punishment in hell-fire if I did not agree with any of his writings. In fact, Russell encouraged me to disagree with him and to think for myself; especially in the task of seeking the truth as no one, as Russell himself admitted, has as yet found the truth.
Russell wrote: All human knowledge is uncertain, inexact, and partial. I ask Russellian philosophers: what’s so uncertain, inexact, and partial about the truth that we are all born troubled, sick, and dying? Indeed, there is no such thing as health. There has never been any one who lived anywhere on this planet who enjoyed lasting health! Poch Suzara

Our Troubled Selves

There is the good side and the bad side in everything; except in religion - there is only the bad side. Religion damages the minds and hearts of children to grow up with so much fear and deep in ignorance to be unable to help remedy the world so full of hatred that grows out of fear.
Consider this painful fact: whether rich or poor, each and every one of us are born troubled. Indeed, as soon as we are born, we begin to die. There is no such thing as health. Health is a myth. In the meantime, if religion were to have its good side, it must be in the business of alleviating these horrors not with faith in human stupidity, but simply by facing and changing reality. After all, reality is malleable; not inscrutable. The science of medicine in this respect has achieved wonders! Poch Suzara

Believe It or Not

If you wish to set up a Foundation and have it registered with the government office in the Philippines known as THE SECURITY AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION, you must first submit a letter of appointment from any of Catholic Bishops of the Philippines. The Foundation must start with a basic worth of ONE MILLION PESOS. For my part, I do not believe it. What I do believe, however, is that there is no such creature called the Separation between Church and State in the Philippines. In fact, both the Church and State have been having an illicit affair together and they have begotten millions of poor and bastard children. They are known as the Filipino people – the Sick Man of Asia. Poch Suzara

Jesus, the Pinoy

Jesus was crucified dead on the cross to destroy the devil. The devil, however, is still alive and doing actively well. Jesus must have been a Pinoy. Puro drama.
In the meantime, it is incredible to believe how millions of Pinoys never find it strange that in order to be a friend of God we must first declare ourselves as an enemy of fellow-Filipinos and that we must hate to work for the welfare of our own country. Poch Suzara

Animals

We are all born unbelievers, not believers. We are turned into frightened believers by indoctrination. To think that animals are born animals and no one in the animal kingdom would hate or kill other animals for the glory of God in heaven. Only the frightened human believers do hate and kill each other; specially if what nobody believes what everybody else have been threatened to believe. Poch Suzara

The Biological Fact

The biological fact is the day we are born is the day we begin to die. Birth, growth, death, and decay amount to the same realty. Indeed, each unfolding reality contains the seeds of its own destruction and the embryo of a new reality that will replace it. In the ultimate analysis, however, there is no such thing as health because even in health we are already dying, aren’t we? It is all a question of time. Today, it is me. Tomorrow, it is you. In the meantime, what is, say, 70 or 80 years of human life on this earth compared to a powerful God already existing for some, say, 80,000,000,000 years of life out there in the universe? In fact, how could we offend such a God whose existence, we are told, has no beginning and no end? Poch Suzara

Why Something

Why is there something rather than nothing? But then again, why is God a nothing? Hardly a something? What is God? Where is God? How come God is always omni-absent, never omni-present? How come God is always invisible? What is so great and supernatural about a God always hiding mysteriously far away from everybody’s sense of sight or sense of touch? Hello! Poch Suzara

Religion Against Religions

Have you ever heard of atheist who hated and killed another atheist for not believing in God?
What about you religious morons? When will you wake up to stop hating and killing each other in God’s name and for his glory in heaven, or in Allah’s name for his glory in paradise?
Look at the Dark Ages of our world. It is mostly about Catholics against Protestants. Protestants against Protestants. Christians against Muslims. Muslims against the Jews and Christians against each other.
Is God really that cold-blooded in perfection, lost in self-admiration, always hungry for scenes that have mostly to do with death and destruction? Whatever happened to the beauty of renovation, or the art of reconstruction? Poch Suzara

The United States Government

The United States government would rather be wasting TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS on stupid wars against other countries than be spending monies on medical science research to find the cure of terminal diseases such as malignant brain cancer. Another even far more dreadful disease terrorizing America itself and other nations of the world is called – RELIGION. Poch Suzara

Chronic Boredom

Boredom is a chronic disease of the rich, not the poor. Chronic boredom stays with the rich round the clock. It smothers enthusiasm, impoverishes the imagination, saps personal energy, and inspires fear of new and fresh ideas. Most rich people would admit that they are bored; but never would they ever admit that they are boring. Indeed, rich people are always bored to death though they are always looking for excitement to help them prevent the necessity of thought.
In the meantime, economics is a scam to confuse and to take advantage of the poor for cheap labor. If the economists knew exactly what they are talking about, they would have been wiped poverty out of this world centuries ago. Poch Suzara

Free Choice

In the free choice to choose between thoughtless belief or thoughtful unbelief, without hesitation, I choose thoughtful unbelief. Sooner or later, for the sake of higher learning, we must abandon faith, especially in not wanting to know what is true. Poch Suzara

Christ Experienced

I am told that Christ is best experienced, not explained. Well, that's fine and dandy. But we should experience Christ as a member of which church? Baptist, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Adventist, Methodist, Unitarian, Presbyterian, Anglican, Episcopalian, Mormon, Catholic, Iglesia ni Cristo, El Shaddai, Jesus is Lord Fellowship?
To think even Christ himself never experienced anything inside a Christian “church.” He did, however, explained himself why he was more at home inside a Jewish “synagogue.”
Christianity is the venereal disease of the Pinoys. Christianity is what makes the Filipino the Sick Man of Asia. Look how in this 21st century, we continue to love Jesus up there by hating fellow-Filipinos down here. Poch Suzara

Blind Faith versus Bright Reason

Faith continues to be popular because, like “humility,” it makes a virtue out of lazy mentality which is really a euphemism for ecclesiastical stupidity. Blind faith makes us see only 2 sides of every coin. I’d rather enjoy clear-eyed reason. It is more creative and expansive: it makes me see the 7 sides of every coin: left and right, top and bottom, back and front, and the middle side. In the meantime, to advocate that a belief be accepted without the scrutiny of reason is to advocate that a belief be accepted without thought and without verification. Poch Suzara

Born in the Flesh

“That which is born of flesh is flesh, and that which is born of spirit is spirit.” Gospel of John 3:6.
In the meantime, it is, indeed, anybody’s guess how many children in our sick society owe their existence to the spirit of vanity, sadism, and masochism, rather than to the flesh of love or genuine physical attraction. Most men, however, prefer to think that they are libidinous or oversexed in the flesh rather than believe that they are vicious, lascivious, or, in the spirit, - idiotically salacious. Poch Suzara

Yesterday

“It is dangerous presumption to say, “tomorrow,” when God says, “today!” Philippine Star April 30, 2008
If there is a God, I ask: “Where were you yesterday?”
In the meantime, I am asked what best describes my belief? Well, I am an atheist. We atheists have no belief system. Even in the beauty of questioning everything, we atheists have no system in doing so. We just question everything including the way we think. Poch Suzara

College Educated Friends

Most of my college educated friends and relatives are into twaddle or drivel on the one hand; and, religious hokum or political bunkum, on the other hand. For my part, I am happy and proud of myself expelled out of high school for asking my teachers endless questions. Poch Suzara

War on Poverty

The war on poverty can never be won. To begin with, the world economists themselves do not exactly know what in hell they are talking about. For example – economic growth? According to whom, by whom, for whom, and with whom? Hardly would they also seriously look into the Entropy Law: it shows that the more the economy grows, the more it digs itself into a hole.
For my part, I would attach more credibility or reliability to the scientists who disclosed that each unfolding reality contains the seeds of its own destruction and the embryo of a new reality that will replace it. Poch Suzara

Abused Atheists

We atheists make fun of religious beliefs because they are ludicrous. Can you really believe that Satan appeared and wafted Jesus on to a mountain top from which he could see the entire world and that Satan, personally, tempted Jesus and offered to him the kingdoms of this world if Jesus would only kneel down to Satan? ( matt. 4:11) (Luke 4:2-13). To think Jesus never asked Satan if he possessed titles of ownership of those kingdoms of the world! Perhaps you believe you can change your diet to suit God’s menu? … “hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own shit, and drink their own piss with you? ( Isaiah 36:12 ) ( 2Kings 18:27 ) You can’t laugh at Atheists because we do not adhere to such irrational ideas. However, if you find any hilarious slips in our logic, we will be the first to laugh with you at our own errors. But now you complain that Atheists have done nothing to help the poor and the downtrodden as much as the Christians have. Well, how could we? Look what you Christians did to us Atheists for about 1,500 years. You outlawed us from the universities or any teaching careers, besmirched our reputation, ostracized us, blacklisted us, banned our books, burned our writings of any kind, drove us into exile, humiliated us, seized our properties, arrested us for blasphemy. Christians have dehumanized us atheists with beatings and exquisite torture, gouged out our eyes, slit our tongues, stretched, crushed, or broke our limbs, tore off their breasts if they were women, crushed their scrotums of they were men, imprisoned us, stabbed us, hung us, and burnt us alive – for bringing enlightenment to the minds of men and intelligence to the hearts of women. Atheists are now in government, in the United Nations, and other global organizations. Have you heard of atheists doing the same horrors to the Christians or to believers of whatever faith today? No, because we atheists are rational men and women. The most we do at your ridiculous beliefs is to laugh at them as they are childish, if not delusional ever doing more harm than good in our world. Poch Suzara

Persistence in Prayer

“Persistence in prayer pleases God.” Phil Star, May 3, 2008. Obviously, this only proves that God is not all that powerful or all that kind and merciful or all that thoughtful. In fact, it proves that God is really a cold-blooded perfection lost in self-admiration always desperate for affection via endless attention. Poch Suzara

God Will Provide

A country that produces more children than it does produce rice can only mean one thing: that country, like the Philippines, continue to believe and to depend on its traditional Christian teachings such as God will always provide. Poch Suzara

Godism

If Atheism is a natural response to the abuse of fundamentalism, then fundamentalism must also be the natural response to the abuse of ecclesiasticism. And what good is ecclesiasticism devoid of Satanism? In the meantime, a God who maliciously and recklessly created a world like this one has got to be a supernatural Jerk. What is more incredible, however, are the faithfools. The still believe in such unbelievable malarkey. They continue to be frightened of such childish nonsense. Poch Suzara

The Childish Creator

God could create human hair and fingernails that can continue to grow after death without pain for a thousand years. God, however, refused to do the same with the rest of the human body. What a silly and childish creator. Poch Suzara

Little Men

I am told that great men of history have always had a high libido. Always lustful. They were sexually active in the pursuit of women just as active in the other great challenges in life.
Well, I have known of morons who have had a much higher libido. They will fuck anything dumbstruck with a skirt; yet they remain Lilliputian as ever before always bereft of any kind of courage for greatness to put beauty into this world where nature has put only horror. Poch Suzara

Poor Judas

"Now this man [Judas] purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out." (Acts 1:18) In school, we were taught that Judas hanged himself. Indeed, he hanged himself according to Matthew 27:5? "And he threw the pieces of silver into the temple sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself. I suppose before we can determine whether Judas was a hero or a villain, let’s first Determine how the poor fellow met his death as reported in the bible a book written by inspired authors of an All-knowing God! Poch Suzara

The Rich against the Poor

It is a fact of life that the rich are interested to become richer. But more so they feel a greater sense of accomplishment if they were able to successfully keep the poor poorer. To think that the worst kind of poverty is the poverty of the mind and heart. Is it any wonder that our world, since God knows when, has always been ruled by a gang of rich morons! Poch Suzara

America

America has approximately 1,600 Buddhist temples, 1,200 Muslim Mosques, and about 500 Hindu houses. Most of America’s black population now embrace the Islamic faith. It is now almost equal in numbers to the Jewish followers.
Author Dennis E. Hensley, in his book MILLENNIUM APPROACHES,writes that prisoners in New Jersey and Georgia have asked to worship on Fridays because they are Muslims. Orthodox Jews serving as rabbis in the military have asked to violate Air Force dress regulations in order to wear a skullcap. Sikhs serving in the military have petitioned to be allowed to grow their beards for their faith forbids shaving them. Muslim women in four states have sought an exception to revealing their faces for driver’s license photos since wearing a veil is part of their religious discipline.
According to high officials of the US government, if you were an American atheist, you are not considered a citizen of the USA.
America is indeed a great nation. It is blessed not only with unity of diversity, but also liberty; especially the liberty to perpetually enjoy human stupidity. Poch Suzara

Computer Industry

Logic and mathematics on the one hand, and science and technology, on the other hand, produced the computer machine.
It is truly pathetic, however, to see timid friends and frightened relatives sitting in front of a computer machine still clinging to the belief that the power of divinity had everything basic to do with logic, mathematics, science, and technology responsible for the birth of the computer industry. Unfortunately, how to assemble and produce and operate a computer machine is not mentioned in the Old or in the New Testament! Poch Suzara

Death

There is so much fuss and excitement about the physical death of a relative or an associate or a friend. Nobody, however, gives a damn about the mental death of children in our schools, colleges, and universities. Especially those taught never to think critically; or to learn to be independent fearlessly; or to be truthful creatively especially in helping to establish and maintain for ourselves a lively and a sane society. Poch Suzara

The Holy Bible

The holy bible is responsible for more heresy, atheism, agnosticism, disbelief - call it what you like - than any other book ever published.
For my part, messages from the Old and the New Testament inspired me to extricate myself up and out of the Catholic Church premises. As I happily excommunicated myself, I managed to save not my stupid soul; but saved, instead, my precious mind and heart to carry on living the good life – one inspired by knowledge and guided by love. So life is short, brief, and fleeting, so what? If we must face death, let us face death sober, and not drunk with lies. Poch Suzara

Basket Case

Considering the tens of millions of college educated Filipinos with talents and skills, why are we still in Asia a basket case? Indeed, in this 21st century, why is the Republic of the Philippines only waiting for more miracles from foreign countries called foreign investment? If not also waiting for a foreign Savior to remedy the religious ills of our sick society?
The Philippines – the only Christian country in Asia since the 16th century, for the glory of God in heaven, produces more children than it can produce more rice for the nation’s children!
In the meantime, it is incredible to notice that other Asian countries like Vietnam and Thailand do not believe in a God that provides. And yet, these Asian countries are able to produce more rice not only for themselves but also for export to the Philippines. Poch Suzara

The Difference

It is very easy to determine the difference between a religious believer and the intelligent unbeliever. The religious believer looks for easy answers. Answers, indeed, that in time, become obsolete. The intelligent unbeliever, however, looks for hard questions - so basic in the never-ending pursuit of the truth. Poch Suzara

Christ’s Victory

Christ’s victory in the past gives courage for the present and hope for the future.” Phil Star, May 2, 2008
Indeed, the courage to continue to be selfish, greedy, stupid, and insane; and the hope to continue to be the Sick Children of Asia.
In the meantime, Christ preached: “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.” Matt.18:3.
Of course, it is best that we all grow up not only older, but wiser; but how is that possible when Christ’s also preached: “Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; no yet for your body, what ye shall put on. . . Take therefore no thought for the morrow.” Matt. 6:25

Crab Mentality

Is the crab mentality one of the major negative attitudes of most Pinoys? Is this why our country lags behind neighboring nations? A sure sign of crab mentality is that everyone wants to be corrupt. Just like most, if not all of the officials in the Philippine government are corrupt? I say, please, let us not insult the crabs. They are innocent creatures. None of them are baptized Catholics. None are products of our schools, colleges, and universities. In fact, there are no known crabs who organized prayer rallies for the salvation of the crab souls being caught then boiled or steamed and swallowed by religious morons populating our sick country - the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century. Poch Suzara

Philippine Education

There is not one, among the great many schools, colleges, and universities in the Philippines that teach students we Filipinos are all one people, and that we Filipinos are all under one nation. The whole idea behind the system of education is to see to it that Filipinos never get to know and to love each other; especially, as we are all one and the same victims of the same historical deviltry since the 16th century known as Christianity. Poch Suzara

Atheists are Honest and Truthful People. We do not live with Lies and Deceptions

Those who believe atheism is an escape from responsibility or a license to a life of criminality will be in for a surprise. They will find atheism’s moral standards as high as those of any religion because they emanate from the exactly the same arena – human experience. Atheists will need even more responsibility because atheism expects no help from supernatural allies in the sky. Atheists will find no Big Daddy figure, no Grand Design, no purpose other than what they can make, and basically there is nothing in control of nature except the laws of nature. No wonder so many would-be atheists fail the test. But what the believers offer is even more unnerving. Consider: An all-knowing, all-powerful God who could have created any kind of world desired but deliberately and maliciously chose to create this world. This God stood by helplessly while his own Chosen people were being gassed to death by the millions. Either God approved, in which case he is at least as wicked as Hitler, or God disapproved, in which case he is less powerful than Hitler. The Great Flu of 1918 killed some 20 million people; where was our loving God? The God concept loses all the time. You simply cannot have an all-powerful, all-knowing, all-merciful God and have a world like this one. We atheists understand this, which is why we are atheists: without theism, without god-belief. It is not a careless or reckless position but quite a rational one arrived at after much thought and research. Atheism therefore will not be jettisoned without the power of reason. If that reason ( credible evidence for the existence of the supernatural ) has not been found in all of human history, it’s highly unlikely it will be discovered any time soon. So the probability of a genuine truth-seeker - an atheist reverting back to god-belief is about on a par with the chance of the man of knowledge going to back to being, once again, a man of faith traveling backward instead of forward. The arrow of time never travels backward. Poch Suzara

Errors

Why it is that when man commits an error, it is man’s fault? But when God commits an error, it is not God’s fault, but still man’s fault? If kindness, however, is the oil that takes the friction out of life, where then is supernatural kindness?
In the meantime, if man were inherently evil, why would God allow his only begotten son to incarnate and be born as a man? Born of a Virgin Mary at that! Poch Suzara

Mediocrity

To the mediocre, the highest form of religion is the one that’s based upon mediocrity. The theologians, who are always unworthy of human intelligence, prefer to call it - Christianity. The bible writers called it having faith in divinity. In the end, it is really about the different levels of pretentious serendipity, but nevertheless simplified as the complexity of mediocrity. Poch Suzara

FILIPINO TRAGEDY

There is nothing tragic about having been raised by ignorant parents at home and educated by ignorant teachers in school. What is truly tragic, however, is if we refuse to explore anything truthful at all about ourselves as individuals and to discover too where we stand as a decent nation. We just carry on with our children and grandchildren to believe and to have faith in the same old religious hokum and the same old political bunkum that’s keeping all of us popular as the Sick man of Asia. Poch Suzara
