Fooling Around

I stopped fooling around with women a long time ago. Fooling women during my younger days proved nothing but the perversity of virility, if not the mediocrity of masculinity.

In recent years, however, I found something much more challenging to be fooling around with. Indeed, I daily enjoy fooling around with Christianity. She is so indecent as a mystery, so childish in mendacity, so gross in hypocrisy, always promoting fear of divinity, and never-ending in her tradition to support misery and to maintain poverty. Especially against the creation of a healthy society for the sake of promoting common human decency. Poch Suzara

Talking Serpent

Where did the Talking Serpent come from? Who inspired it to play a leading role in the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden? On which day of the six days was the Talking Serpent created? After God made the beast of the earth of his kind. . . and God saw that, “it was good.” It was good how and for whom? Poch Suzara

Clarence Darrow

Clarence Darrow wrote: "In spite of all the yearnings of men, no one can produce a single fact or reason to support the belief in god and in personal immortality."

Yes, I quite agree. That is why, for a great many years busy writing, I have not ceased reminding my readers that infinity and stupidity are one and the same perversity. Except that stupidity is way way ahead of infinity. Poch Suzara

Darwin's Evolution

You got to give credit to Philippine politics. It has proved Darwin wrong. There is no such thing as evolution in the Philippine government. What it was last century, it is still the same rotten government run by corrupt government officials in this century.

Perhaps, there is an exception. There is, in fact, evolution in this only Christian country in Asia. Last century we Filipinos enjoyed national delusion. This century, however, there is an evolutionary improvement: we Filipinos are now enjoying national confusion. Poch Suzara

Peter’s Rock

“And I say unto thee also, that thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matt 16:18

In the meantime, if there were no hell, there would be no need to build a church. Poch Suzara

Asian Countries

Other Asian countries are way ahead of the Philippines. Especially in the race for higher standard of living and thinking. It is mainly due to the power of science, the scientific way of thinking, and technology. They have nothing to do with maintaining or sustaining traditional dross.

The Philippines, however, has been left behind. It is still stuck in the race due to the power of prayer and theology that have mostly to do with the way of the cross. Poch Suzara

This World, Our World

My friends and relatives want me to go back to church. Be a repentant Catholic, and believe once again in the existence of God. Well, ok. Here, however, are my conditions:

I need meaningful miracles. I need from God an annual report as to the well-being or, as the case may be, - the ill-being of my dead loved ones, dead closed friends, and my dead great mentors. I need to know how happy are they in heaven or, as the case may be, how unhappy are they in hell. After I get this report, I should be proud once more to believe a God in heaven and to believe in the existence of a devil in hell.

Now if my conditions were not possible to meet, then just point out to me where exactly is it mentioned in the bible that God is a Catholic, and I will go back to being a faithful Catholic once again.

Otherwise, as an atheist, I shall only continue to embrace the most decent of my goals in this life - to leave this world one day a better place than I found it or there is very little reason for my having lived. Poch Suzara

Religious Friends

My religious friends get angry at me each time I challenge them to seriously read the bible for themselves. However, when I point out to tem religious garbage, If not ecclesiastical trash written in the bible - they get angrier at me.

In the meantime, there are a lot of Jews still existing today. They are same Jews mentioned in almost every page in the bible. Now there are also a billion Catholics existing in the world today. But where are they recorded or reported in the bible? Even Jesus was not a Catholic. He was a Jew – born and raised by Jewish parents living in a Jewish culture in a Jewish land that is still Jewish today. Poch Suzara

Poverty and Population

We are told that poverty in our country is not due to population growth, but due to corruption. No doubt, it is. Corruption of the worst kind: the corruption of self-respect as a people and the corruption of dignity as a nation. Indeed, in our corrupt society, we are not poor because we are corrupt; on the contrary, we are corrupt because we are poor. Via our schools, colleges, and universities we are taught to believe that contraception inside marriage is a sin. Outside marriage, it is immoral. What is not a sin or immoral, however, is to be vocal about the rights of the unborn for as long as one is silent and indifferent to their plight as soon as they are born. In the United States, abortion is legal. In the Philippines, abortion is a crime. But we consider ourselves good and faithful Christians. We do not abort. Instead, we allow babies to be born, we give them a fighting chance, and then kill them with poverty, filth, malnutrition, lack of hygiene and sanitation. In this God-forsaken only Christian country in Asia, we produce 3 babies every minute according to government statistics. That adds up to 180 babies born every hour; 4,320 babies born every day; 126,900 babies born every month; or, 1,522,800 babies are born yearly. Allowing for 20 per cent mortality birthrate, those are still impressive figures. What is even more impressive, however, is that the majority of those babies born under the horrors of religious nonsense will have no purpose in life except that when they are old enough, they too will multiply and replenish the Filipino for the glory of Christianity in the Philippines. Pro-lifers are so proud to teach God’s commandments in this country; especially the fourth - honor thy mother and thy father – to children even those living under subhuman conditions in the streets of our major cities. As if strength of character, or a high I.Q. is a requirement to bring forth children into our sick society. Yet the physical position that a man and a woman must assume in order to increase the human population has got to be one of the ridiculous positions assumed by would-be mothers and fathers. Honor is not something given. It is deserved and earned. In the meantime, since the 16th century, we Filipinos have been carrying Christianity on our backs. We are bent and twisted and crippled by its weight. We love only God up there. For the sake of gaining that better world to come in the next life, we must hate not only life but also hate one another down here. And that, my dear reader, is what poverty is all about in this already 21st century Philippines. Poch Suzara


Hundreds of millions, nay, billions have been frightened to believe that there is a better world to come after death. We can see the deadly results of what such stupid beliefs have done to our planet earth.

For crimes and brazen lies against humanity, If I had my way, I would have all the insane religious leaders arrested, tried in court, and then jailed. For two thousand years – the great religions, instead of civilizing, they have only been preparing us for that next life in that so-called next world to come. Indeed, instead of increasing better qualities of life in the here and now, the great religions have only been augmenting the worse – cruelty, greed, selfishness, corruption, fear, hate, war, stupidity, and insanity. Poch Suzara

The Holy Bible

Bible contents are recycled myths. It is not only essential that you throw your bible out the window. It is even more sensible that you cease to believe in the existence of supernatural beings. Indeed, they do not exist. If, however, they do exist – they are not worth believing. After all, supernatural beings have never introduced themselves to any one of us. We don’t even know if such beings are bright, radiant, shinning, or luminous.

We do know, however, that if God exists, he is existing as a black supernatural Being existing in pitch darkness. He had to create the sun to light up the gloomy darkness around Him, didn’t He? Poch Suzara

Money - the Root of All Evil

St. Paul wrote a letter to a young Christian, and said that the root of all evil is the love of money. (I Timothy 6:10).

This is an amazing claim since we know that there are rich people who made money for the love God. In fact, for the glory of God up there, rich people have their monies deposited in the Vatican bank – one of the richest and the most evil of banks in the world today. Poch Suzara

Why more Believers

There are, indeed, more believers than there are unbelievers existing in our sick society. The reason for this anomaly is due to a simple fact: - only the unbelievers bother to read the bible from cover to cover. Millions of believers do not care to read as they are afraid to read the bible as a whole book. Isaac Asimov said: “Properly read, the bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.” Indeed, in this only Christian-God-forsaken country in Asia – millions of believers have no idea whatsoever what’s actually written in the bible. They are just told that if they should begin to doubt that the bible is God’s word – then there is eternal punishment in hellfire created for them after death. As for me, an atheist, I would rather be unhappy burning in hell with the truth than be happy in heaven with lies and deception. Thus last 3 words in my death-bed will be: fuck the bible! Poch Suzara

Only In the Philippines

A high school expelled student of decades ago is able to rattle up the religious complacency of college educated men and women in this God-forsaken only Christian country in Asia since the 16th century.

There is really nothing special about this already senior citizen today except that when he got expelled out of high school years ago, he enrolled as he is still enroll as a student in the greatest of all universities – it is but a collection of books. He had never ceased to question everything. His mind moves not on hinges, but on wheels – always willing to think - the very reason why, at the age of 15, during First Year high school, for being a bad influence to his classmates, he was thrown out of De la Salle University. He is, yours truly, Poch Suzara

My Low I.Q.

I deeply regret that nature gifted me with only ½ of 1 percent of the logical capacity and mathematical capability of a Bertrand Russell. Nevertheless, I am so grateful. Bertrand Russell saved not my silly soul, but educated, instead, my precious mind. Especially to habitually think. Indeed, Bertrand Russell even encouraged me to question his 98 years of voluminous work and variegated accomplishments. After devoting most of his life in the search of the truth, he was honest enough to have concluded: “All human knowledge is uncertain, inexact, and partial.”

Bertrand Russell was honest when he was wrong. He was honest when he was right. He was even more honest when he did not know. I love Bertrand Russell – he inspired in me to explore the good life – one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Poch Suzara

Where is Melchisedec Today

For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually. Hebrews 7:5 A lot of my friends and relatives and associates are horrified by my atheism. Well, I should be willing to flush my atheism down the tube if any of you can show me the whereabouts of Melchisedec. Obviously he is God living as a priest somewhere on this earth today. But where? which country? Do any of you know? I’d like to meet and ask Melchisedec a great many questions! I’d like to learn from his vast knowledge and experiences in life.

Misleading the World

Most men of wealth, power, and glory are not leading, but are misleading the world into becoming a messier place. It is so glaringly obvious, if not alarmingly transparent in recent decades in America - not the land of the free or the home of the brave, but a nation of the greedy, the selfish, the criminal, and the insane. Indeed, we Americans have yet to learn how to exist in peace and harmony with the rest of the world in dire need for reconstruction, not destruction. Poch Suzara

Insane Religion

If you were a sinner and found yourself in heaven, God will see to it that you will be painfully punished forever and ever.

If, however, as a sinner you found yourself down in hell, Satan will be most happy to welcome and reward you forever and ever for a job well done.

And that, my dear reader, is just how insane the basis of our religion has been founded since the birth, death, resurrection, and the Second Coming of Jesus – the Jewish Son of God, the Jewish Prince of peace, the Jewish Savior and the Jewish Light of the world. Poch Suzara


Religion is God’s failure on earth. Consider, in this already 21st century. We are still into praying daily to God to give us this day our daily bread, and to lead us not into temptation; and we are also still praying to Mary, the Mother of God, to pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, amen.

If religion were already a success on this earth, no one need waste any more time and energy praying to Mary, the Mother of God to pray for us sinners. As if Mary could not tell her Son off about the silly horrors still repeated again and again in this God-forsaken world of ours. Poch Suzara

Broken Record

Religion is God’s failure on earth. Consider, in this already 21st century. We are still into praying daily to God to give us this day our daily bread, and to lead us not into temptation; and we are also still praying to Mary, the Mother of God, to pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, amen.
If religion were already a success on this earth, no one need waste any more time and energy praying to Mary, the Mother of God to pray for us sinners. As if Mary could not tell her Son off about the silly horrors still repeating and repeating like a broken record in this God-forsaken world of ours. Poch Suzara

The Bored and the Restless

The bored and the restless love to pretend that they busy doing something. They are, in fact, accomplishing nothing and always running away from everything. They are more into acquiring the symbols of wealth instead of cultivating mental health which is the greatest of wealth. They love to feel the excitement of killing time. Hardly do they realize, however, that time is already killing them.

In the meantime, the bored and the restless have yet to appreciate Socrates, the Greek philosopher. More than three thousand years ago, he said: “The un-examined life is not worth living for man. I love Socrates. He cared for the future of man who will one day venture and explore the galaxies. Poch Suzara

Supernatural Dust

The bible says: – “dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” Gen 3:1

Well, if God made man in his image and likeness, then God must be made of dust too. Now, do you religious morons really believe in the existence of a supernatural Dust? Poch Suzara

42 Daily Newspapers

There are 42 daily newspapers in the Philippines today. Each one praying daily to win over readership of approximately 9 million readers from a population of 90 million Filipinos. Too bad for the print media we are not a nation of active intelligent readers. We are more into passive silly prayers.

In the meantime, there is much evil in Philippines journalism. By giving readers the views or opinions of the superstitious, if not the religious, the media keeps us in touch with historical fears and traditional ignorance keeping our country perpetually poor and eternally backward. Poch Suzara


War is a friend of the rich, not the poor. After all, war is big business. In war, the few rich get richer and ahead. The many poor, however, get poorer and dead.

It is time for the world to stop the war business. International disputes should be settled not with ammunition, but with the illumination that precisely established the United Nations. Poch Suzara

Logic and Mathematics are one and the Same Animal

Logic has become mathematical and mathematics has become logical with the slight difference that does not matter except Bertrand Russell as he discovered the fact a century ago. In fact, according to Russell, the two are one. They differ as boy and man: logic is the youth of mathematics and mathematics is the manhood of logic. Though he never knew it, Russell was one of the logical mathematicians who fathered the computer industry. It is incredible how the religious morons are utilizing their computer machine to spread the Word of God. For my part, I love, worship, and adore Bertrand Russell. He encouraged me to get involved with the power of creative thought. Even if there were little logic or mathematics in the activity for creativity. Indeed, there are no rules, no equations, no measurements for creative thinking. There is only the beauty and the reliability and the efficiency of questioning everything.

Philippine Progress

If we Filipinos want sane growth as a people and healthy development as a nation – the first thing we must do is to keep our sick politicians and our sick theologians out of it. If there is anything that keeps the Filipino sick as a people, it is due to the lies and deception from our sick church officials. And if there is anything that keeps the Philippines sick as a nation, it is due to our sick government officials. Oh well, it is hard to blame these sick men and women. After all, they all share something in common: they all have acquired a college diploma. Poch Suzara

Christian Welfare Agencies

Christianity has done charitable work for the poor, but never, as it ever, in all of its history, has done anything at all to get rid of poverty, totally, out of our sick society. Christianity could never be serious in alleviating poverty because, to begin with, she has a vested interest in human misery and suffering otherwise euphemized as “sacrifices.” For all of its alleged concern for the “poor in spirit,” Christianity has been in no field of hypocrisy more shameless – proud of her great success in promoting spiritual poverty in tandem with moral bankruptcy as a way to control the Filipino minds and hearts in the Philippines since the 16th century.

In the meantime, in our sick society, everybody is impressed with the aims and goals of the Christian welfare charity organizations. Especially as such organizations are getting richer while the poor they are helping are getting poorer and increasing in great numbers. Thanks to the business of “mercy” as inspired by the priesthood industry. It is never really interested to remedy, permanently, poverty but only to seek popularity and indeed more money. The Christian welfare agencies have no qualms about our needless population growth especially as it is forcing a fantastic rise in malnutrition, illiteracy, and indignities. In fact, what we are told to believe is that what is important in the end is to please a divinity up there even if it means degrading humanity down here. Acts of charity in this country? Most are about gross hypocrisy wrapped in Christian piety benefiting not human society but only the priesthood industry. Poch Suzara


If religions were fundamentally silly, why is it that so many millions of people have a religion to believe in?

Here, however, is a deeper question: If religion was necessary to all men, why is it not equally intelligible to all men? Indeed, why must we all love God up there but only by hating one another down here? Nay, here’s more: if religion were the most serious of matter in human existence, why is the subject of religion the least we judiciously examine or, for that matter, critically discover for ourselves? Poch Suzara

Atheist/Scientist Carl Sagan

Listen to these words of this famous atheist/scientist – the late Carl Sagan. In his best-seller book COSMOS, he wrote: “Was there a tiny universe, devoid of all matter, and then the matter suddenly created from nothing? How does that happen? In many cultures it is customary to answer that God created the universe out of nothing. But this is mere temporizing. If we wish to courageously pursue the question, we must, of course ask next where did God come from? And if we decide this to be unanswerable, why not save a step and decide that the origin of the universe is an unanswerable question? Or, if we say that God has always existed, why not save a step and conclude that the universe has always existed?” Poch Suzara


Nature is but a name of an effect whose cause is God. Phil Star Feb. 6/2009.
Who knows if that cause – God – is still alive? Specially since God is always invisible within the realm of the unknowable, and never ever visible within the arena of the knowable.

The most basic law of physics states that matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed; they can only be transformed into different states. In the meantime, existence exists and nothing can exist outside existence. Now where is God located? Inside or outside existence? More to the point – how could God exist outside the universe since there is nothing existing outside the universe? In fact, everything that exist can only exist inside the universe! Now where in the universe is God? Poch Suzara

I Hate Religion

I hate religion as I no love for anything that's based on fear. Fear never promotes mental growth. Fear is never a reflection of intellectual maturity. I hate religion because it enhances deadly believing, not lively thinking. Nothing evolved in religion. The religious lies and deception during the first century are still same lies and deception in this 21st century. If religion had been more about the courage to live, and not about the fear of death; indeed, if religion were about the search of the truth, and not that this or that is the truth – I would have learned to love passionately, not hate religion justifiably. Religion has been more about being a part of the security system organized by the church. It is a great business for gaining wealth, power, and glory. Sadly, however, there is no such thing as a security system anywhere in this world. Not as long as there is birth, growth, death, and decay. In the ultimate analysis, however, if religion had never taught that to be human means to be evil, fallen, and in need of rescue - religion need not have proceeded to be one of the greatest of evils that keep the human race still pretty much bogged down in disgrace. Poch Suzara

Filipino Education

We are still into the fear of believing rather than into the courage of thinking.
Take sex, for example. We still fear what the church has always preached that sex
is a sin, and naturally to keep it sinful, it’s been necessary to keep it fearful.
In the meantime, we believe that propagating the species is a matter of divine grace; but sexual activity is a matter of divine disgrace. In either case, however, we have yet to hear from would-be mothers and would-be fathers enjoying mutual orgasms declaring, at the same time, that nothing matters during sexual engagement except replenishing the Philippines with more babies even if unwanted or unloved.

Religious Morons

They would not bother to ask where the places of burial are of the dead bible characters – Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel, Noah, Lot, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Job, Paul, the apostles of Christ, etc – men and women who were famous and in personal communication with God.

The religious morons of this world, however, would easily get excited over the so-called discovery of one or two rickety chariot parts rotting at the bottom of the Red Sea to prove that three thousand years ago, Pharaoh’s men – thousands of them – all drowned while chasing after Moses crossing the Red Sea with 3,000,000 of his Jewish people in search of the Promise Land that obviously never existed.

Science vs Pseudoscience

Science and pseudoscience are the opposite ways of viewing nature. Science relies on -- and insists on -- self-questioning, observation, testing, and analytical thinking that make it hard to fool yourself or to fool others. Indeed,, science is never definite. It is never conclusive. Science is always tentative, never final. Thus, in science, questions are far more important than the answers.After all, in time, the answers become obsolete.

Pseudoscience, on the other hand, preserves the ancient, natural, irrational, unobjective modes of thought that are hundreds of thousands of years older than science -- thought processes that have given rise to superstitions and other fanciful and mistaken ideas about man and nature – from woowoo to voodoo; from the flat earth to the house-shaped universe with God in the attic, Satan in the cellar, and man on the ground floor; from doing rain dances to torturing and brutalizing the mentally ill to drive out the demons that possess them.

Pseudoscience encourages people to believe anything they want. It supplies specious "arguments" for fooling themselves into thinking that any and all beliefs are equally valid. Science begins by saying, let's forget about what we believe to be so, and try by investigation to find out what actually is so. These roads don't cross; they lead in completely opposite directions. One, heading towards veracity; the other heading towards faith in mendacity. Poch Suzara

Limits of Science

Science cannot explain why as human beings we are persons, not merely objects... Science can tell us nothing why the mind exists and functions well as it does... Science cannot define or explain ethical principles nor can add to the inner quality of life... Science is unable to tell us why or when exactly the universe came into being... Science is unable to explain why there are scientific or natural laws, or why they are consistent and dependable... Science cannot explain why the universe is so amazingly fine-tuned to support intelligent life on our planet... Well, what about religion? What can it tell us? Is it true? Is there a God? And if God is the Creator of everything that exist – why would God create science to deal precisely with the questions that religion has never been able to answer? Questions like: Where is God? How come he is always nowhere? Always omni-absent. How come God is never omni-present anywhere? In fact, if God exists, why is God such a cold-blooded perfection? Why is God so lost in self-admiration? Why is God so fanatical about eternal salvation who never extended a decent hand during the birth, growth, and development of human civilization? Poch Suzara

Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung.

The dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward.

Ecclesiastes 9:10
For there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased they shall not rise.

For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

Dear Fr. Shay Cullen

The only way we can save our planet is via family planning and birth control practices. Indeed, we should aim for zero population growth - the same number
of births and the same number of deaths. Nobody is destroying the planet earth except people - billions of people with distorted minds and twisted hearts taught
to believe that, at any rate, no matter what, there is a better world to come after death anyway. One would think that if there is really a better world out there, the good God should have created people to live there to begin with.

Fr. Shay, surely, we can save our planet. But we can only do so by first saving precious human minds and precious hearts. Indeed, save it from being twisted with religious lies and save it from being distorted with political deception.
Best regards.

Impressions from a Reader

“My impressions of your character from the communications you sent to me (and I hope am wrong) are in summary, in these words, that you are: abrasive, abusive, antagonistic, argumentative, averse, bitter, bothersome, complaining, crafty, creepy, crummy, destructive, difficult, discontented, disturbing, divisive, envious, fickle, foxy, harsh, horrible, incompatible, irksome, irresponsible, lousy, maladjusted, manipulative, mean, meddlesome, nagging, nauseating, objectionable, obnoxious, offensive, pestilent, remorseless, sacrilegious, slanderous, sour, spiteful, tricky, unfaithful, ungrateful, unpleasant, useless, vindictive, vicious, wrongheaded...okay enough! AND NOW YOUR LIST OF EXPLETIVES are to be expected. Nevertheless, have a nice day!”

Obviously, I have been most successful in provoking not the thoughts, but the infantile beliefs of this reader with my thoughts.

Oh well, that’s how I started myself with my own impressions against the childish beliefs of my teachers during grade school and high school. They were teaching me not to think, but only to believe. I thought then that I must fight these utterly thoughtless morons. However, I have had no other recourse but to engineer my own expulsion and to make a name for myself as a “high school dropout.”

Well, this April 26 I will be 72 years old and I truly regret to admit that I have not yet began the serious fight still ahead of me.

Contrary to what many religious morons believe - atheism is not a neurotic rebellion or a mental disease. It is vigorous and a courageous philosophy that makes us face life with self-respect, and not run away from it like thoughtless cowards. Poch Suzara

The Pinay

Imagine the Pinay no longer going to church, no longer contributing time, no longer giving energy to the institutions that oppress them. The Philippines can once again be what it once was - famous throughout the whole of Asia as the “Pearl of Orient.”

The most heinous crime of the Church has been perpetrated not against churchmen but against the Pinay - the churchgoers. With its poisonous concepts of sin and divine punishment, it's warped and inhumane doctrines, it is impossible to calculate the psychic damage that has been inflicted on the Pinay character. Indeed, the Pinay who might have grown up into healthy, happy, productive, zestful women devoid of the burden of corruption, fear and guilt ingrained in them by the Church. This alone is enough to condemn Christianity that has inspired the Pinay to be the Mother of the Sick Man of Asia. Poch Suzara

Employment Overseas

If only our schools, colleges, and universities were educational, and not commercial enterprises. If only our system of education were not based upon destructive believing, but rather more about the art of learning constructive thinking - especially to gain self-respect as a people and dignity as a nation – the hundreds of thousands of our college educated men and women need not yearly seek employment in foreign countries. Many could be self-employed. Millions could be playing constructive parts of nation-building with the power of science and technology right here in our own country.

World War II Filipino Veterans

Filipino veterans during World War II in this Asia’s only Christian country fought and died for freedom and democracy. Fortunately, freedom for the few rich to get filthy richer; and, unfortunately, democracy for the many poor to get filthy poorer. Poch Suzara


In a poor and sick society, kindness, such as sharing with others food, clothing, shelter, and medicine is something great and admirable. However, if ours were a sane and a healthy society managed by a sane and a healthy government, being kind to anyone need be commendable.

After all, in a sane and healthy society everyone should already be enjoying not kindness or charity, but enjoying the growth of self-respect and the maturity of human dignity. Poch Suzara

The Sick Man of Asia

They are among the sick believers of the faith. Ironically, they are also among the sick unbelievers of the faith. I suppose the former is due to silly divinity; and the latter is due to the complexity of social insanity. In either case, however, both the sick believers and sick unbelievers all seem to be mutually inspired by the crab mentality all pulling each other down in order to maintain our popularity in the world as the Sick Man of Asia. Poch Suzara

Schools, colleges, and Universities

We still think of education as the transmission of certain body of beliefs, when it should be the development of the power of thought.

Thus, stagnation as a nation has little to do with nature’s decree. It has more to do with college degree. Indeed, one should only look at the corrupt state of affairs of our nation under a corrupt government run by corrupt men and women all blessed with college education.

In the meantime, for as long as we are taught in our schools, colleges, and universities that there is a better world to come after we are dead – we Filipinos will never enjoy growth as a people. We will never enjoy maturity as a nation. We will always remain like little children that the bible has taught us to live by and to emulate. Especially from the Lord who said: “Verily, I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” Poch Suzara

Old Saying

“What goes up must come down.” This, however, is not always true. Human stupidity never comes down. It always goes up. In fact, if there is anything that defies the law of gravity - it is due to another more powerful law – the law of human stupidity. Especially the kind that’s always about fear of deviltry for the sake of love of divinity. Poch Suzara

Decent Hell

A decent hell where I could again be with my family and friends would be a much better place for me than be in a heartless paradise where I never hear from any of my loved-ones. Somehow, a simple message of how they are all doing, how well they are all situated up there would be most welcomed, if not to me - gratifying.

After my own death, I have no wish to be situated in a heartless paradise. A place where I could not be in touch with the loved-ones left behind on earth. Poch Suzara

The Creator

Yes, only God can make a tree, lively and lovely as it is. Only man, however, can make a silly religion, deadly and ugly as it is. Poch Suzara

Einstein's Famous Phrase

“The most incomprehensible fact of nature is that it is comprehensible.” Albert Einstein.

Well, it was great that Einstein was such a polite scientist. He could have been more truthful, however, had he added also: “The most comprehensible fact about the existence God is that it is utterly incomprehensible. Otherwise the existence of God need no longer remain a mystery.”

Einstein also said: “A legitimate conflict between science and religion cannot exist. Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.”

Well, I think Einstein again was just being polite. After all, if God exists, specially a God who is tame, not lame; a God who is kind, not blind, there would be no need for religion and science to quarrel or, for that matter, even need to exist. Poch Suzara

No Atheists in Government

My dear reader, have you ever pondered on this simple truth: - just as much as there are no atheists in foxholes, there are also no atheists in government? All government officials are faithful believers. They all love, worship, and adore God.

In fact, ours has never been a government of the atheists, by the atheists, and for the atheists. On the contrary, ours has always been a government of the corrupt believer, by the corrupt believer, and for corrupt believer.

Under Article 7, Section 5 of the Philippine Constitution before the president enters on the execution of his/her office, the President shall take the following oath or affirmation: "I do solemnly swear [or affirm] that I will faithfully and conscientiously fulfill my duties as President [or Vice-President or Acting President] of the Philippines, preserve and defend its Constitution, execute its laws, do justice to every man, and consecrate myself to the service of the Nation. So help me God.

I ask: where is God to help out? How come instead of being omni-present, God is only always omni-absent? Especially in this only Christian country in Asia since the 16th century! Poch Suzara
