The rational versus the irrational

According to a religious moron on these pages, we, the unbelievers are all irrational. They, the believers, are the only ones who are all rational. During the miracle of our Lady in march 9, 1953 in Fatima, France, around 70,000 people saw the sun dancing in the sky. They were all rational. During the same day, however, a bigger miracle was, indeed, happening throughout the rest of Europe: Some 700,000,000 Europeans never saw the same sun dancing. Why? It was because they were all irrational and devoid of Faith! Poch Suzara

Sorry, I Disagree with You

New York,


Sorry, but I disagree with you. It is not the
Philippines, but in fact it is - CHRISTIANITY -
that is dying. My job, as it is the job of all
decent and thinking Filipinos is to see to it
that CHRISTIANITY'S death in the Philippines
will come in this century rather than in the
next century.

As decent and thinking Filipinos, let us all
play a role, no matter how puny and insignificant,
in not only rocking Christianity's boat in the
Philippines, but help as much as we can to sink
it. What other great purpose is there in life
worth pursuing than to bring down everlasting
stupidity in cahoots with a silly deviltry always
in partner with a silly divinity?

Mar, please read Bishop John Shelby Spong's
OR DIE. Poch Suzara

Far More Damaging

Far more damaging than sexual abuse is the intellectual abuse of children in Catholic schools. Indeed, what could be more damaging than teaching children to believe and to have faith in a lot of holy lies and deceptions otherwise more known as "free will." Such as the Son of God Jesus was crucified on the cross 2,000 years ago to destroy the devil? But the devil is still alive and kicking. Still pretty much active in cahoots with God's divine plan, especially for us Filipinos with our "free will" in the Philippines, - the only Catholic country in Asia not of our free choice since the 16th century. In the meantime, in this already 21st century, millions of Filipinos without running water, without toilet facilities, living in carton boxes, Nipa huts, or under bridges, indeed, in the slums of our major cities continue praying to God to "give us this day our daily bread," and to "lead us not into temptation! And after falling into temptation they also pray daily to "holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, amen!" No doubt, the truth hurts; but lies are far more damaging and can last for a thousand years. I ask: when will we Filipinos, especially as a people, begin to wake up to the ugly truth that we are not the healthy masters of spirituality. We are, in fact, the sick victims of insanity behind Christianity! Poch Suzara, Google# Facebook# Twitter

Women in my Life

Behind every mediocre man there is usually a woman who has given her life to establish his. Not surprisingly, the women in my life walked out on me; especially, as I encouraged them to do so. To move on without me. Indeed, my life is far more precious than to waste my time playing the role of a savior, a fucking idiot to any woman; especially, as she cannot or will not courageously appreciate the power of the intellect or the beauty of ideas in the free market of ideas. To be faithful intellectually in our mutual search of the truth. Indeed, to be rich especially rich in spirit. After all, the worst kind of poverty is the poverty of the mind and heart. Otherwise, I would rather live alone and face life and death alone if my woman would just be a nothing to me but a sex partner. No need for me to carry an extra burden on my back that would only keep me off track away from the joys of deeper thinking; and, pleasures of wider understanding. In the meantime, reading a great book is to me far more exciting than fucking an empty-headed, poor in spirit, in between her legs situation. Poch Suzara

Education in the Philippines

Education in schools, colleges, and universities should be more about accelerating the human evolution. Especially for the sake of nation-building in that we may all benefit from a higher standard of living and thinking. In the Philippines, however, education is mostly about soul-saving in order to promote social insanity and political perversity, not to mention economic stupidity. Indeed, in our system of education, the messages students get daily in class is how live in fear - fear of God, fear of death, fear of the unknown. It is, in this way, that we hardly have the intellectual capacity to figure out why we Filipinos are only getting famous as the Sick Man of Asia. Poch Suzara

The Revolution in Evolution

If we were taught in our schools, colleges,
and universities that the earth is not some 6,000
years old but some 4.5 to 4.6 billion years old,
none of us would find the fact of evolution,
as something too horrible to contemplate.

Due to our ignorance for the sake of our faith,
we look at the fact of evolution as something
not natural, but something unnatural; especially
as it says that we humans have evolved from the

Here’s Carl Sagan, a great scientist, an expert
in the subject of evolution. He presents with much
scientific evidence that: “Two billion years ago our
ancestors were microbes; a half-billion years ago,
fish; a hundred million years ago, something like
mice; ten million years ago, arboreal apes; and a
million years ago, proto-humans puzzling out the
taming of fire. Our evolutionary lineage is marked
by the mastery of change. In our time, the pace is
quickening.” Poch Suzara

The Religiously Faithfool

The man who says, "If God does not exists, nothing matters,"
is truly a religious faithfool who has never looked upon his
fellow-human beings with love or compassion, or even looked
at our world of pain and suffering with sympathy or empathy.

As an Atheist

As an Atheist, I can admit, at least, one great thing
about God: While He was screwing around with the Virgin
Mary - He and Mary practiced family planning and birth
control measures. They had produced only one son, didn't

Most Marriages

Most marriages fail because to begin with, the woman

Presidential elections

As it was during the last presidential elections, I will
again not waste my vote for any presidential candidates
in this upcoming May 2010 general elections. I am still
waiting for a presidential candidate with guts enough to
publicly declare that if he becomes the next president
of the Republic of the Philippines, he will duly convert
all of the churches and cathedrals throughout the land
into housing-building-school facilities for the landless,
homeless, jobless, faceless, nameless, and the hopeless

Non-traditional Senses

LITTLE MINDS Do not appreciate any of the 5 senses; not even the beauty and
harmony of common sense. AVERAGE MINDS Do appreciate all of the five senses – seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, and tasting. But refuses to recognize the existence of other kinds of senses. GREAT MINDS Do appreciate full well not only the five traditional senses but also the power and the beauty of the other senses existing within us - the sense of balance, sense of emergency, sense of symmetry. sense of temperature, sense of acceleration, sense of worth, sense of priority, sense of change, sense of timing, sense of direction, sense of clarity, and, indeed, the sense of laughter that this world as created by God has always been and still is utterly senseless.

Something out of Nothing

I am not sure about the universe as a something
created out of nothing. What, however, I am sure
of is that, for millions of years before I was
born, I was a nothing. Then my mother, happily
married to my father, got into their usual sexual
embrace one night some years ago. As a result, I
was somehow produced into a something from a
nothing. It is simple biology. If my dad never
met my mom – I would never have been born.
Now to say that it is due to religion that I was
born alive is theologically ludicrous. To say
further that God ( a Catholic God ) created me
in his own image and likeness is even more
religiously absurd. Now I am asked why I do not
believe in the existence of a hereafter? My
answers – it is because there never was for me,
or for any one else for that matter, a herebefore.
Well, if there is no such reality as a herebefore,
how can there be the reality as a hereafter? Poch Suzara

My Atheism - for Peewee

Peewee, Thanks for your great and indeed, sensible response to my piece - "Why we Atheists do not believe in the Christian God." Here, however, are great gods if taught to me to believe when I was a little boy at home and in school - I never would have entertained the beauty and the harmony of ATHEISM. Indeed, after I am dead, and it turns out that I will meet with these gods in the next life, I will surely shake each of their hands with gratitude and pride. Such gods, I will always believe and have faith in. Moreover, I will also always love faithfully, worship respectfully, and adore intellectually these great and wonderful gods: A legend is told of the creation of the universe. The gods held a conference and one of them said, "Let us give to man the same creative power that we ourselves possess. Where shall we hide this priceless gift?" Another answered, "Let us hide it where man will never think to look for it: within his own mind." Poch Suzara


Faith is not wanting to know what is true.
In fact, faith is not wanting to know the truth
why we Filipinos continue to remain spiritually
poor as a people and continue to remain backward
morally as a nation.

Faith is also protecting and defending ecclesiasticism.
Inspired in all of us during our childhood years getting
ourselves soaked in catechism. The catechism that meant
for us to believe that God will take care of our daily
bread. That God will aways provide! That God will never
lead us into temptation. That we must only always obey
God, not men!

Never mind our country of people,
nature, and the flesh, low and depraved as
they are, and therefore should be of little
concern or consequences for those millions
of us seeking to live the real life
in the real next world after death. After all,
this world is merely a stopover on our journey
to the next world. Therefore the less attention
placed on it, and more attention placed on
God’s kingdom in heaven, the rewards will
be greater, more everlasting.

Indeed, we Filipinos have never been
the rich masters of faith. On the contrary,
we have always been the poor victims of faith.

Dear reader, I have just described above
for you the basic causes in what keeps us
Filipinos, in this already 21st century, still
so faithful in getting ourselves more famous as
the Sick Man of Asia. Poch Suzara

Peace with Jesus

Jesus said... Have peace one with another ...On earth peace, good will toward men... Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you... Blessed are the peacemakers...These things have I spoken unto you that in me ye might have peace... Resist not evil; but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” These are all great and wonderful messages from dear Jesus; except, could any of you bible believers, theologically inspired faithful bible readers, please explain what is so noble about turning the other cheek, if one knows that each time he does so, he is piling up greater Heavenly rewards, while the one who strikes him is earning his rewards in Hell?

Excuse me Guys and Gals

Excuse me guys and gals, but I don't blame anyone for what is wrong with us Filipinos. I blame the creator. God created the Jews, Chinese, Koreans, Spaniards, Americans, Japanese, etc, in his own image and likeness. Except the filipinos. God did not create the Filipinos in His own image and likeness. God created the Filipinos only to be good; especially to be good for nothing Christians. Consider we are the only Christian country in all of Asia since the 16th century. Indeed, I said it before, I say it again: If we were created in the image and likeness of God, we should be among the rich and powerful masters, and not the poor and faithful servants in countries of this world!

Pope’ s Public Apology

After apologizing for sexual abuse of children in church, in behalf
of the catholic church, the Pope should also publicly apologize for
the intellectual abuse of children in school – teaching them to
believe worthless values about life after birth and to have faith
in even more worthless values about life after death.

After which, I want the Pope to apologize for the wrongful public
execution of Jose Rizal in 1896. He was not a criminal nor was he
a sinner. He was just a bright thinker. Rizal delivered enlightenment
for the minds and hearts of Filipino children to enjoy via the
development of ideas for the here; the growth of knowledge for the
now; and the establishment of common human decency everywhere
in our country - the Philippines.

Our Jose Rizal was publicly executed because he showed more human
love and human respect for earthly humanity down here. He could
not give a hoot for a celestial divinity out there. Poch Suzara

The Religiously Moronic

I am told that in my writings I should try avoid using the words like “religious morons.” That I should, instead, politely refer to same as the “religious adherents.” I say fuck that shit. Those who had our own hero - Jose Rizal - arrested, jailed, and executed more than a hundred years ago were not the religious adherents. They were the religious morons – the Catholic Spanish friars. They were out to establish and to enhance not common Filipino decency in our land, but to protect and defend highly profitable big business otherwise more known as the Catholic Church in the Philippines. Ever since then, since there were no more heroes in the likes of a Jose Rizal, in this already 21st century, the Catholic church has become the richest and most powerful corporation existing in the Philippines. The majority of impoverished Filipinos are its clients, especially in buying daily love and indulgences from God through the power of prayer. Indeed, Filipinos have been taught to believe and to have faith in God who will always provide. If not here on this earth, later after death with God in the kingdom of heaven. What could be more religiously moronic than that? Poch Suzara

I say it Again

I said it before, I say it again: Unless we all learn to become
atheists – to stop believing in a God or Allah or Yahweh or a
Burning Bush or what-not – we shall never be able to proceed on
the road towards global beauty and harmony for a better and a
healthier humanity.

Peace on earth and goodwill to all men is only possible as soon
as we all dump into the garbage bin all of our mindless religious
beliefs and thoughtless religious values. Indeed, nothing is
more constrictive, and in the long run more destructive than a
belief that is based on childish lies, if not infantile, -

Religion should be a private and a personal affair. Organized
religion, however, should never be taught in our schools, colleges,
and universities. If we ever hope for education to be truthful,
useful, and lively, it must be kept away from organized religion
which is dreadful, useless, and deadly. Organized religion is
simply nothing but organized insanity.

In the meantime, let us, indeed, teach our children that there
are bigger things in this world than we are - our family, our
country, this planet earth, and the whole of mankind - these
realities are bigger things than we are. And not some supernatural
silly monster somewhere out there in space eternally existing
only because of our infantile, nevertheless fearful - blind faith.

Faithful Believers

Faithful believers believe that God is a good and a loving
God and wants believers to do good things. In fact, most
believers, naturally enough, want to do good things and to
behave morally.

Sadly, however, millions of believers do not read the Bible,
or just read certain passages of it in church. It is
understandable. The Bible is hard to read due to its archaic
language and obscure references. Also many priests and
preachers don’t want you to read certain passages written
in the Bible because they convey a message of loss, not
profit. Indeed, a message for bankruptcy; not financial
security. For example, “thou shall not follow the multitude
to do evil.” Exodus 23:2.

Imagine the tremendous loss of revenues for the priesthood
industry if everyone follows not the multitude to do evil?
What will happen to the billions that the church makes as
monthly income by protecting and defending evil in this
world? The more evil there are existing in this world the
better justification it is for the church to pretend to be
against such evils. But as a matter of historical fact, the
church has always had a vested interest in human misery,
poverty, and indeed, the concocted existence of deviltry.

Could anything thoughtful be build on a thoughtless rock?
And why should the gates of hell prevail against a mindless
piece of rock? In the meantime, during these past centuries,
in the Philippines, for example, when was the Son of God
Jesus ever around? The Savior of Filipinos? The Redeemer
of all mankind? Or, the whereabouts of his apostles who were
given the power and authority to destroy the devil? Time has
elapse. But the devil is still pretty much around lively, if
not as ever - deadly.

For the most part, evil build the church as the church
established herself with more evils she produced for the
multitude to fear. In fact, both the church and evil have
always been in cahoots existing as faithful partners happy

Now, my dear reader, if you wish to understand the nature
of evil in this world, just take a hard look at your church
existing for over 2,000 years. She's getting richer, more
powerful, and enjoying more authority and glory not due
to the elimination of evil in this world; but precisely
due to the multiplication of more and greater evils created
into this world. Our World.

I said it before, I say it again: if we truly hope to live
the good life - one inspired by love and guided by knowledge
- especially for the sake of establishing a good and a happy
world for all mankind - it is time to dump the evil church
permanently out of this only precious world of ours!

We do not need a God out there for us to love one another down
here. We need only to love one another down here and that is
all that matters. Let us cultivate of our precious minds and
precious hearts through precious education. In this way, human
civilization becomes far more precious as compared to the
avoidance of a silly eternal damnation for the sake of gaining
a worthless non-existing equally silly eternal salvation. Poch

Atheism in the Philippines

If there were one true existing god, there should only be one true existing religion — and it's obvious that there many religions in conflict against each other. The theistic world is divided into several different main existing religions, - Judaism, Christianity, Islam, etc each of which is divided into groups hating other groups. And, many of those are divided into even smaller groups. The Christian faith, for instance, is divided into over 33,000 denominations. They have published some 88 different versions of the holy bible sold in the market today. Atheists, on the other hand, stand always united. We do not hate or kill other atheists for not believing in the existence of God. In fact, hating and killing comes from belief; never from unbelief. We Filipino atheists are so proud of the fact that no Filipino has ever become filthy rich for believing that God is bad. We are, however, so ashamed of the fact that millions upon millions of Filipinos are filthy poor and yet they all believe that God is good. Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

Matthew - Silly Inspired Author of God

“Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” Matt. 10:30. Matthew could have made more sense had he been a circus clown and not a bible writer. It is, indeed, laughable also to believe that God inspired Matthew to write this kind of spiritual hogwash. Golly, we live on a speck of dust called earth lost in the immensity of space and time. Human life is but a split second long, a wink of an eye, a flash in the pan compared to the life of the universe. But, according to Matthew,the Lord seems to welcome divine anxiety for as long human stupidity will last as long as eternity?

However, as products of Catholic schools, colleges, and universities – look how in this already 21st century we still believe that after death there will be better world for all of us to go to.

Religion of the Failures and the Losers

Jesus declared that the first will be the last, the weak will be the strong, and the fools will be the wise. Jesus was not a friend of the victor, of the strong, and of the wise. On the contrary, Jesus was the prophet of the losers, failures, and the faithfools. Look at Jesus himself. He got crucified on the cross by men created in the image and likeness of His own Father - God? Is it any wonder, crucified on the cross, Jesus cried out loud: "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAST FORSAKEN ME?"

Just 4 Elements

According to science, oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen
make up 96 per cent of the human body. The rest of the 4 per cent,
according to religion, comprises the soul, a thing created by God.
As to which God, or what is the nature of a soul – nobody knows!

It seems that in terms of space, the existence of the human body
is purposeless. In terms of time, human life is meaningless. The
sooner we accept these brutal facts, the sooner we can learn to be
happy, however, briefly, however temporary, happiness may be.
After all, in the end, nature will kill us all. Which only proves

happiness: I found myself. Indeed, Socrates, the Greek philosopher,

for man.”

It is Truly Sad

It is truly sad, Pinoys and Pinays born of poor families existing in the
slums of our major cities. A few of them, somehow, by hook or by crook,
able to go to grade school, high school, and college. Then happily get
a menial job in the Philippines, and then even more happily get a better
job, with better wages, working in a foreign country. And yet, by and large,
they choose to remain poor, especially poor in spirit. They continue to
negate the reality that the greatest of wealth can only come from mental
health. Indeed, the worst kind of poverty is the poverty of the mind and
heart. A great many of these well-employed Filipino workers overseas have
neither the interest nor the courage to explore and admit the horrors of
poverty still uncontrollably spreading in our poor and backward country.
Surely, they remit monies for their families back home. But I have yet to
hear from these college-educated Pinoys and Pinays lessons they learned
or their own ideas, explanations or the reasons why exactly foreign countries
are able to hire them. Why, for example, these foreign countries enjoy a
higher standard of education thus enjoy the pleasures of a higher standard
of living and thinking.

I too was born of a poor family. I also managed, somehow, to export myself
to live and work, for some seventeen years, in a foreign country. But never
was there ever a day in America where I was utterly thoughtless or mindless
of the plight of poor fellow-Filipinos I had left behind in the only
Christian country in Asia – my beloved country – the Philippines. Oh yes,
