Who do we First Obey

Who do we first obey and follow - God, the Father, or, God the Son?
Here are the words from God, the Son: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor
as thyself. Matt 22:39

Now here are the words from God, the Father:
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the
world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father
is not with him” John 2:15

Of course, even if God, the Father contradicts God, the Son,
you can always follow both at the same time and prove that
Christianity is a religion that's purely based upon organized
insanity. Poch Suzara

If Atheism were a Religion

If atheism were a religion, how come we have never heard of atheists hating and killing other atheists for not believing in the existence of God? In the meantime, the theists - the Christians, Jews, and the Muslims have not ceased hating and killing each other for the glory of their respective God in heaven or in paradise! Really, if Atheism were a religion, we might as well also admit that God is an Atheist. Well, considering that God does not believe in the existence of other Gods – that makes God an Atheist. Well, to me, as a die-hard atheist, I do not give two hoots even if God does not believe in the existence of other Gods! We atheists recognize things greater than ourselves – our family, our country, and the whole of humanity. Inside our minds and hearts there is no room for a silly divinity to exist. Poch Suzara

Time and the death of Love

Time is needed to earn money in order to support wife and children. By the time you become rich and famous, however, the question arises: you have become rich for what and famous to whom?

Consider your wife and your children – they hardly know you; neither have a healthy relationship with you as you were daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly too busy in the deadly competition to be a financial success in life., specially to be a successful idiot to get your family derailed.

Indeed, Bertrand Russell wrote it: “In the modern world, however, love has an enemy more dangerous than religion, and that is the gospel of work and economic success.”

Albert Einstein

"Science without Religion is lame and Religion without Science is blind!" Albert Einstein

Obviously, Einstein was just being polite to the millions of religious morons. After all, in the ultimate analysis, science knows a lot about religion while religion knows nothing about science. To begin with, there is not one word, not one sentence, not one verse about the wonders of science written in the bible. Poch Suzara

Western Civilization

It is claimed by Christians that Christianity built Western civilization. If this were true, how come the rich white Americans lived comfortably on black slave labor in America for a great many years? How come the poorest, most backward, nevertheless only Christian country in Asia – the Philippines - never got to be a prominent part of Western civilization? More to the point: if the Christianity built Western civilization, how come the Filipinos in this already 21st century have not learned to grasp the values of forethought and the power of knowledge; still have not learned what it means to love one’s country, what it means to love fellow-citizens, and indeed, how to enjoy a refined heart to love and a developed mind to respect - one another? If we were such as civilized Western nation and, as the only Christian country in Asia – how come the Christian authority got one of the greatest – the most noblest of Filipinos – a thinker and a humanist – Jose Rizal – arrested, incarcerated, and the publicly executed? In fact, thanks to the teachings of Christianity the majority of Filipinos do not know what exactly Jose Rizal stood and died for in his own land under the rule and authority of Christian power and supremacy. In the meantime, Christian terrorism had been behind the Crusades, the Inquisitions, and the mass killings of “witches” and heretics. Many of these heretics were only guilty of expressing ideas then that are now commonly accepted as the science of social reform. With the threat of heresy, Christianity effectively set back humankind's scientific and social advancement by hundreds of years. Christianity is also at the root of most of today's international problems. Just imagine how much more peaceful the world would be without belief in one God or one Son of God causing so much strife, hate and war. In the ultimate analysis, however, if Christianity build Western civilization, how come the teachings of Jesus Christ played an important part in the division between Catholics and Protestants that historically torn apart the Western world, still divides Northern Ireland, and indeed, has kept the Philippines left behind in the race for growth and development as a civilized nation of Asia?

The Failure of Most Marriages

Most marriages fail miserably because to begin with most men only want to fuck and to fuck women. They do not care to raise children which is what marriage is all about. That is why, for the sake of not bringing unhappy children into our already insane world, the prevention of unwanted pregnancy education is a must while men and women enjoy fucking each other. To think that 3 babies are born every minute of the day and night in this poor and backward country. That is about 1.5 million babies each and every year added to the population growth of the Philippines. Most of these babies are the result of an unhappy or failed marriages, if not out of wedlock. Their fathers have been taught to believe and to have faith in God who will provide - if not this world, in the next world to come after death. Poch Suzara

The Tooth Matters

According to the Department of Health, 98 per cent of the Philippine population suffer from tooth decaying, molars rotting, and gums bleeding.

Now what can be expected of Pinay mothers who have been taught to believe not so much in the values of personal health and sanitation but to have faith only in our terrestrial degradation for the sake of gaining eternal salvation? Poch Suzara

Simple Change

I want simple change in the Filipino to begin to enjoy health and wealth as a people. I also want simple change in the Philippines to begin to enjoy prosperity and maturity as a nation. In order to accomplish the change desperately needed for our historical sanity – we must only begin to love our country and love fellow citizens. We can accomplish the task by throwing out the evils making for our sick society under deadly Christianity. Indeed, Christian beliefs and so-called values are still playing destructive parts in keeping the Filipino still poor spiritually as a people and keeping the Philippines still backward morally as a nation. In the ultimate analysis, ours is the failure of education under the success of Christianity in the Philippines.

Let us now begin to seriously look at the wonders of science and the scientific way of thinking . Why other Asian nations are enjoying a much higher standard of living and more creative and productive at working. Thanks to the wonders of science and the scientific way of thinking.

EVOLUTION – fact or fiction

Here’s Bishop John Shelby Spong – a rare Christian leader much too difficult not to love and to respect. Indeed, I have the greatest admiration for this Anglican church Bishop. In his WHY CHRISTIANITY MUST CHANGE OR DIE, he wrote: In 1859 Darwin’s masterpiece, entitled THE ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES, was published. That book caused most of the remaining principles by which human life was understood in religious terms to go up in smoke. Darwin suggested, for example, that the world of God’s creation was not yet finished, directly contradicting the literal biblical text. The world, he said, was still evolving, still being created... In the books of Psalms, it had been suggested that human beings were just a little lower than the angels. But now we began to recognize that we were just a little higher than the animals. . . There was much talk in that era about something called the “missing link,” as if the various species of life were separated by a single link rather than by centuries of tiny adaptations. . .”Dust art thou and to dust thou shalt return” became not just a Lenten note of penitence, but a statement of this newly understood reality of human life. . . That strange thing called “creation science” is nothing more than the ignorant rantings reflecting a frightened and dying religious mentality.” For my part, if Christianity were comprised of men in the likes of Bishop John Shelby Spong – never would I have ever dreamed of excommunicating myself out of the religious mess. Poch Suzara

Charles Darwin

Psuedo-scientist Perry Marshall tells us that Charles Darwin was brilliantly half right and tragically half wrong. Indeed, that Darwin never knew of the existence of the living cell created by God as part of his grand design of nature. That no one can deny that our complex universe is an astounding, majestic marvel. But how did it get here? Where did it come from? Does it really matter? Can it be, as so many contend, that all just happened by some fortuitous cosmic accident? Or did it come about as the result of the careful design of an infinite God?

Listen, however, to the findings of one of the greatest men in the world of science – Carl Sagan. In his COSMOS, he wrote:

“We have five fingers because we have descended from a Devonian fish that had five phalanges or bones in its fins. Had we descended from a fish with four or six phalanges, we would have four or six fingers on each hand and would think them perfectly natural. We use base ten arithmetic only because we have ten fingers on our hands. Had the arrangement been otherwise, we would use based eight or base twelve arithmetic and relegate base ten to the New math.”

Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? Well, in the meantime, listen to Bertrand Russell. On the values of the scientific way of thinking Russell wrote:: “Science is at no moment quite right but it is seldom quite wrong, and has, as a rule, a better chance of being right than the theories of the unscientific.” Indeed, “what science cannot know, mankind cannot know.” Poch Suzara

Believe It or NOT

“The Vatican held a meeting of scientists from around the world in November 2009 to discuss the possibility of extraterrestrial life.” Philippine Star 2/16/2010.

What an admission of universal stupidity. Obviously, even the theologians of the Vatican have no knowledge whatsoever whether there is extraterrestrial life existing in Heaven, in Hell, or in Purgatory. Poch Suzara

Stupid Academic Messages

Here are the stupid academic messages conveyed to the millions of our youth daily in grade school, high school, and in college in the Philippines: “There is a better world to come after this life’s termination; and, in the meantime, a better foreign country to migrate to, live and to enjoy full employment after college graduation.”

In the meantime, the Filipino is getting spiritually poorer as a people, and the Philippines getting left behind - backward as a nation bereft of any sense of direction. Poch Suzara

What's Wrong with Us Americans

What's wrong with us Americans? In this already 21st century, the majority of us still believe in a lot of superstitious lies and religious deceptions. The historical evils can best be summarized in few simple words: GOD BLESS AMERICA - the land of the free and the home of the brave! In the meantime, we are a nation of criminals. Life in general is America is the competition to be the criminal like Donald Trump or be like Tom, Dick, and Harry - the impoverished victims of the filthy-rich criminals. Poch Suzara

God as Designer

Perry Marshall claims that he can prove God exists and that he can demonstrate living things have a creator. May I remind Perry Marshall that aside from proving that living things have a creator, he must also prove that such a creator has been a benevolent deity. Well, if we admit the existence of desirable aspects in nature as products of design, we must also admit the undesirable aspects in nature as products of design. Which, in the ultimate analysis, puts Perry Marshal in a ticklish situation. How can he justify a creator who purposely inflicts natural disasters upon man? The master designer could very well be not a kind or a loving God but a supernatural Monster, a malevolent Fiend, or an Almighty Nerd. Poch Suzara

For Perry Marshall

The religious clowns have to gall to tell us atheists that we have yet to learn that God is a spirit and cannot be found through the telescope or microscope, no more than human thought or emotion can be found by analyzing the brain. That, as everyone knows, religion is based NOT on knowledge, but on faith.

At the same time, however, devoid of knowledge, these religious clowns can offer to us atheists a generous assortment of attributes about God from which to choose. According to these source, God is “almighty, eternal, holy, immortal, immense, immutable, ineffable, infinite, invisible, just, loving, merciful, most high, most wise, omnipotent, omniscient, patient, perfect, provident, supreme, true, and indeed, “incomprehensible.”

Well, if religion were based Not on knowledge, but on faith - how do the religious clowns know that an “incomprehensible” God out there designed and created us humans in his own image and likeness down here on this speck of dust called “earth” aimlessly floating in space heading for no where? Poch Suzara

A Little Learning

A little learning is a dangerous thing. Lots of ignorance, however, is not only dangerous. It is disastrous.

Look for example what a little learning has done to this poor religious minister (Perry Marshall) pretending to be a scientist. He claims that he has discovered a new theory of evolution. He says “I only desire to demonstrate that living things have a creator.”

Well, what has a creator anything to do with evolution? Unless, of course, what we want to discover is not more about evolution but a new theory of revelation!

In the meantime, as Carl Sagan asked: “What does seventy million years mean to beings who live only one-millionth as long? We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.”

We Humans have a demonstrated talent for self-deception when our emotions are stirred, and there are few notions more stirring than the belief that there must be a loving God out there somewhere in the universe who created us in his own image and likeness down here on this speck of dust. Poch Suzara

Messages from the Mind

“Messages, languages and coded information never, ever come from anything else besides a mind. No one has ever produced a single example of a message that did not come from a mind.” So says Perry Marshall. Granted.

But the real issue is: how come messages that come only from the mind are not only confusing or meaningless sometimes, but also utterly thoughtless at most times?

Consider what the mind knows is so puny and insignificant as compared to what the mind has yet to discover and to really know not this or know that, but in fact to know exactly what “knowing” means! Poch Suzara

Perry Marshall

Perry Marshal recently wrote to me and said: “If you can read this sentence, I can prove God exists.” “That’s right,” he continues, “I only desire to demonstrate that living things have a creator.”

Well, Perry Marshall has yet to prove not only that God exists but to prove something even more important: - that God as a supernatural being is also a supernatural reader who fully understands that those who refuse to read materials they cannot agree with are no better off than those who can’t read at all.

The Power of Stupid Prayer

If God answers our prayers to cure cancer of our mother or father, how come cancer is still a disease that afflicts our sons and daughters and will continue to trouble even the life of our grandchildren? Indeed, if prayers were true and reliable all of us would stay young, healthy, attractive, learned, sane, kind, loving, intelligent, and rich in spirit. But we live in a sick, rotten, and corrupt world due to, if not because of - our faith in the power of sick prayer. Poch Suzara

Babies

If babies were designed by a creator, how come babies carry no information or have any kind of knowledge whatsoever about the existence of their creator?

So, each of the trillion cells that makes human body carry information about how to make a duplicate copy of ourselves. But then again – so what and why bother? When the original human body itself is so stricken with defects and shortcomings and it only last for a few seconds in time in terms of a million years on this earth that, according to science is already some 4.5 billion years old. Poch Suzara

Science Versus Theology

Here are the two most fundamental questions in science: If evolution happens, how does it happen? And where did the information in DNA come from? Whatever the case may be, we must only wait for science to find the right answer. Forget theology. The theologians do not even know why babies are born ignorant, not stupid. Babies are eventually frightened to become stupid with the teachings of having faith not only in the unknowable, but also to have faith in the not worth knowing. Poch Suzara

Atheism For Filipinos

Atheism is not a belief. It is the absence of belief. An atheist is not primarily a person who believes that a god does not exist; rather he does not believe in the existence of a god. “Theism” and “atheism” are descriptive terms. They specify the presence or absence of a belief in god. If a person is designated as a theist, this tells us that he believes in a god, not why he believes. If a person is designated as an atheist, this tells us that he does not believe in a god, not why he does not believe. In this context, theism and atheism exhaust all possible alternatives with regard to the belief in a god: one is either a theist or an atheist; there is no other choice. One either accepts the proposition “god exist” as true, or one does not. One either believes in a supernatural being, or does not. There is no third or middle ground. Forget agnosticism. The agnostics are spineless cowards who have lost the courage to make a decision about matters of great importance on this earth. In the meantime, to declare that Atheism is a religion is ridiculous. There are no messiahs in Atheism. There are only heroes and heroines who work steadily and often quietly over many years to make those changes in our culture which will enlighten future generations. In the world of atheism, we atheists are all leaders. We are not followers, We Filipino atheists fully understand that the reward of a good life comes to everyone who invests in the future collective well-being of all Filipinos. We Filipino atheists may be as negative as Columbus. We may be as rebellious as Jose Rizal who questioned Catholic authority in the Philippines. We are interested in the here and now, not in the fantasy of a later life to come after death. We see religion – theism – as simply irrelevant to human life. We Filipino atheists understand that we are all part of human life in our country and that we must look after its interests as well as our own, to enjoy together that pursuit of happiness as defined in human civilization. Oh yes, we are few in number. But we care. We are involved as we continue to evolve. We care desperately that our children and grandchildren shall enjoy not the freedom of religion, but precisely enjoy the freedom from religion. It does not matter that we Filipino atheists stand alone; what matters is that we stand. Atheism is a basic posit of life, reason is the only guide, understanding is the only requirement; where education and science are the primary instruments toward a fulfilled life for all Filipinos and where, finally, the Filipino mind becomes totally free.

Religion and Superstition

Religion destroys the mind. Superstition also destroys the mind. But superstition and religion are one and the same fear under ignorance. So what is the use of having faith in one at the expense of the other? Poch Suzara

The Beauty of Atheism versusThe Evil Monster

Before the Filipino can seriously grow as a people and seriously develop as a nation – an evil monster must first be destroyed. The evil monster otherwise more known as Christianity in the Philippines If, over the next 400 years, Christianity continues to dominate the Filipino mind and control the Filipino heart – we shall only be enjoying nothing but more of the same love of God up there by hating one another down here. Indeed, under these conditions, we shall only look forward to a better future for ourselves as citizens of the Republic of the Philippines by migrating to, residing at, and getting employed in, - foreign countries. Indeed, foreign countries that are blessed not only with freedom OF religion, but freedom FROM religion. Thanks to the power of science and technology. I said it before, I say it again. In this already 21st century, it is time for us Filipinos to dump our faith in theism and instead begin to embrace atheism. Take a serious look at the sensibility and the beauty of Atheism: Atheism helps us to see reality as it actually is, without the mental filters of superstition preventing us from directly experiencing it. Atheism allows us to experience our selves, without the debasing idea that we are innately evil or sinful. Atheism allows us to experience true interpersonal love, without any imaginary supernatural intervention. Atheism gives us the freedom to think for ourselves, to construct our own meanings. We each can choose what we think has value. Atheism shows us that we can gain meaning by seeking to make our world a better place, for ourselves and our children's children. Atheism teaches us to take responsibility for our behaviors in the here and now, not for a reward in an imaginary afterlife. Atheism lets us see that we have to make choices about our future. No big daddy god is going to protect us from bad decisions. Atheism teaches us to treasure this moment, this life, and this world — because we realize that it’s all the world we have. Poch Suzara

Atheists Do Not Cut Throats

“There are no atheists in foxholes” speaks well of the atheists; not of foxholes. Foxholes are places where the religious believers position themselves in order to cut each others' throat. They do so because they cannot agree as what will happen to them after their throats have been cut.

In the meantime, my dear reader, have you ever heard of an army of atheists hating and killing another army of atheists because they do not believe in the existence God?

Meanwhile, have any of you ever heard of religious atheists like a bunch of religious morons singing: THIS LAND IS MINE, GOD GAVE THIS LAND TO ME! Poch Suzara

Religion Poisons

Religion does not enhance life. On the contrary, religion poisons life. Christianity has kept the Filipino as the Sick Children of Asia. Indeed, Filipinos praying to God is as similar as sick children praying to Santa Claus.

In the meantime, millions of Filipinos are willing and ready to go to heaven. Specially after they have been schooled to get out to live and work in foreign countries. Poch Suzara

Christianity Exists Everywhere in our Sick Society

Christianity, just like God, exists here, there, and everywhere in the Philippines. It is demonstrated in our custom and tradition, indeed in our culture, damaged as it is already. Christianity is in the home. In the schools, colleges, and universities. In the theaters, and radio and television, in newspapers, in books, magazines, and journals. Christianity intrudes into our judicial, executive, and legislative branch of government. In the social functions and other civic organizations. In the business meetings, political campaigns, commercial seminars. Christianity is there in prayer before mealtime. In sports contests. The music of the day is contaminated with Christian messages. From all sides it moves in on us, endlessly. Ceaselessly. It is not possible to go through a day of one’s life without being exposed to Christianity. In the office, banks, hospitals, police precincts, city hall, residential buildings, hotels, motels, streets, highways, and in billboards, and public transportation system. In any important event of one’s life Christianity is standing by ready to take over the event: birthday party, college graduation, marriage, anniversary, death. In fact Jesus Christ demands that Christianity be pushed here, there, and everywhere. Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, son, and of the Holy Ghost: 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” It is all about behavioral control of the Filipinos. To have more faith in the success of indoctrination that brings about not the Age of Reason or the Age of Enlightenment, but simply the Age of Christianity that gives the Filipinos the power to act as its own destroyer both as a people and as nation. We are not, by any measure, the intelligent masters; on the contrary, as a matter of history, we are the sick victims of organized insanity otherwise more known in our country as Christianity. Indeed, Christianity has developed insufficiency, incompetence, and diminished self-reliance of, with, and for the Filipino way of life as a people since 400 years ago. Otherwise, one would think that as the only Christian country in Asia since the 16th century, the Philippines should already be the most matured and developed country in Asia. After all, we Filipinos are the only people in Asia who believe in Jesus – the Son of God Almighty. But with more than 20,000,000 Filipinos today employed in some 200 foreign including non-Christian countries to financially assist the other 20,000,000 Filipinos left behind unemployed or underemployed, including those supporting our corrupt government officials – in the whole of Asia today, thanks to the wealth and power of Christianity, we are only getting more sick as the Sick Children of Asia. The essence of Christianity is its intolerance. The first commandment of the Christian god is: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” Christians cannot live with other ideas. They are forced to convert all persons to their belief system because that person, who is outside, illustrates that God has failed to bring at least one person to his flock. Therefore he is not all-seeing, all-knowing, all-understanding, all-benevolent, all-powerful god. If he were that, he could induce all to “come unto him” and feel the “glad tidings of great joys.” It is impossible for those of you who are caught in that trap to understand that others have no need of faith in such beliefs systems and do not live in mental prisons or spiritual cages. Therefore you scream out to us atheists that our position is one of religion too, that we have a belief system as you do. What you are trying to do is, by definition, include us in your insanity. You define the positions and attitudes, opinions and ideas that we have as “a religion” because your thinking is so structured that it is impossible for you to understand the concept of a “free mind.” Indeed, you can only believe in the freedom of religion, when there is something better and greater to believe - the freedom away from religion. Atheism has none of the attributes of a religion. We have no god above or beyond nature, no breach of natural laws by such a god to demonstrate that he exists, no method of communication between such entity and ourselves, no elaborate reward and punishment system such as heaven or hell for being in accord with that god’s dictates. There is not one element needed for religion existing anywhere in Atheism. We have no atheistic morons known as atheist saints. Therefore, you charge that our religion is the worship of “nothing.” But, in fact, this is what the Christians do: worship nothing. An unseen, unknown, uncaring, indifferent entity which you call god is supplicated by you daily with no response. Nothing is there – but you worship it. Nothing hears you – but you address communication to it. Nothing responds – but you hear some messages in the void. Nothing ever happens – but you rationalize that “something” occurs somewhere, perhaps in one’s heart. It is an incredible game that you play like a bunch of lost children looking for a happy home. In the meantime, not the truth, but evil goes marching on! We atheists insist only that you do not include us in your credulity game. We have neither the taste nor the gumption to live with you in your world of make-believe. We atheists are real people who live in a real world which we trust will be a better world in the future than all the rotten religions have made of it during these past centuries. Poch Suzara

Poverty

Poverty in this 21st century Philippines is still due to collective insanity especially since the arrival of Christianity in the 16th century. There is, indeed, the existence of poverty of the worst kind: the poverty of the mind and heart. It deprives our nation’s historical, cultural, and scientific growth and development. In the meantime, here's how poor the average Filipino is: His only sense of wealth is not health; but to be seen driving around in an imported expensive automobile with a sexy Pinay seated beside him. He is living in an expensive mansion which he bought from filthy rich criminal. His organizing prayer rallies to save the lives of fellow-criminals scheduled to be executed for high crimes in foreign countries. The last, but not least his having acquired a college diploma ostensibly displayed in his living room wall or in his office. Poch Suzara

Children in School

It is not through pain and suffering or by illusions or delusions that children in school learn how to be good, creative, and productive citizens.. It is with a sense of self-respect, self- direction, and, indeed, with nutrition and sanitation. In the meantime, we cannot love others unless we love ourselves first. Sadly, in our school, colleges, and universities, we are taught to love Jesus, Mary, Joseph and other bible characters, but hardly to learn how to love our selves with a sense of pride and dignity as citizens of our country.

Freedom of the Press

If you were the owner of the press, you can certainly enjoy the freedom of the press. In the meantime, our democracy encourages mediocrity, and fosters vulgarity. Indeed, under our so-called democracy, we Filipinos enjoy not only the power of stupidity, not only the glory of insanity, but also the blessings from the Catholic church and its authority as they are the real owners of the press in our poor and sick country. Poch Suzara Facebook# Google# Twitter# Atheists#

Jesus cast out demons

Jesus never sent any one to do the work of God without giving them the authority to cast out demons. Jesus called His twelve disciples to Him; He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. (Matt 10:1) Jesus said, ‘And as you go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of heaven is at hand...cast out demons... (Matt 10:7,8) Jesus said, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth’ (Matt 28:18)

Well, what happened? How come the apostles never managed to destroy the unclean spirits? The devil is still pretty much alive and kicking. All kinds of sickness and diseases are still with us. Not to mention the sick clowns identifying themselves as God’s messengers and/or God’s delivery boys in the Philippines in this already 21st century. Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

Free Will

We are told that God’s greatest gift to man is his free will. Indeed, we have the free will to obey God’s will. We are not free, however, to practice the virtues of free thought. Under God’s free will syndrome – the best of freedom can only be the freedom OF religion. On the contrary, under free thought – the most precious of freedom is the freedom FROM religion. Poch Suzara

Abortion - A woman's Priority

Abortion is a woman’s business. She is the one carrying the fetus inside her body. Abortion is neither the man’s business or the government’s business or the priestly business. It is, simply, the woman’s business.

For my part, as an atheist and a humanist, when it comes to the necessity of an abortion, I say, let the pregnant woman decide for herself. It is her decision. No one should decide for her.

In the meantime, if a fetus were already a human being, how come when there is a miscarriage there is no such thing as a funeral service or a Christian burial of
the dead fetus? Poch Suzara

We are a Nothing

We are told that we are nothing compared to God, our creator. Well, if God created us in his own image and likeness, then God must be made of nothing too. Now it is said that we have intelligence, and therefore there must be intelligence greater than ours. Well, why not say, that God has intelligence, therefore there must be intelligence greater than His? So far as we know, there is no intelligence apart from matter. We cannot conceive of thought, except as produced by the human brain. Ah yes, the human brain – a three pound mass of gray matter you can hold in your hands that can imagine the existence of a God who created us out of nothing. Poch Suzara

Why Something

Why something rather than nothing? But has not something always been an absurdity? A nothing makes more sense than a something. A nothing does not suffer pain, poverty, misery, death and indeed, a nothing could never be the stupid victim of a silly nothing.

For my part, before I was born, for millions of years, I was better off. I was not a something, in fact, I was, happily, a total void - a nothing!

God as Protector

There is no evidence that God protects the believers any more than he rejects the unbelievers . When the TITANIC sunk, those who perished were not solely the wicked sinners. There was no distinction in the terrible disaster. Both the believers and unbelievers were damned to face death together with the damned vessel that only God could sink.

Well, this is in modern times. What about during the ancient times. Look how God protected his first creation – Adam and Eve from the lies and deceptions of the Talking Serpent – the devil – another of God’s creation.

Anti-Christ Movement in Israel

The term anti-Christ refers to those who deny the divinity of Jesus Christ, deny His Gospel as truth, or deny Jesus and his teachings. Well, if that were so, it follows that there are many more anti-Christ individuals existing in Israel than anywhere else in the world. Israel, the land where Jesus was born during the 1st century, never got to be converted into a Christian or into a Catholic country. It is still a Jewish State. What could be more anti-Christ than that in this already 21st century? Poch Suzara

Catholic Caritas Manila

“I agree that it is quite difficult to preach on empty stomach. This is the reason why there is Caritas Manila, one of the largest charitable institutions in the Philippines. Not to mention, Hospicio de San Jose. Parishes are involved in livelihood programs to uplift the quality of life of every Filipino.” The Catholic church earns more than ONE BILLION PESOS each and every month from its sale of religious junk alone in the Philippines. Tax free. At the same time, however, we do have millions of faithful believers in this poor and backward country who are so proud that the Catholic Church has also established Caritas Manila – one of the largest charitable institutions in the world. Well, charity comes from profit. How come the church has so much profit in that she can afford to be in the charity business? More than 15,000,000 ( million ) Filipino workers just these last decade alone have already migrated to some 168 foreign countries around the world in order to enjoy a better way of life. I ask: just exactly how has the quality of life of every Filipino been uplifted by the Catholic Church in the Philippines? As for the Hospicio de San Jose and parishes involved in livelihood programs to uplift the quality of life of every Pinoy and Pinay, how come we, as a people, are only getting poorer as the “Sick and Poor Children of Asia?"

Happy and Perfect Earth

If a Creator could create a happy and a perfect place called “heaven,” why couldn’t the same Creator create as well a happy and perfect planet “earth.”

Of course, the creator could not do so. He had no wish to disappoint his best and only friend – the devil in hell – the same devil who still sees to it that we Filipinos remain poor and miserable as ever specially as we are the only faithful Christians in all of Asia. Poch Suzara

No Life after Death in the Bible

The Bible likens death to a deep sleep. David said: “Answer me, O LORD my God. Do
make my eyes shine, that I may not fall asleep in death.” (Psalm 13:3)

Moreover, just before he resurrected Lazarus, Jesus likened death to sleep.—John 11:11-14. Which brings up another question, if Jesus best friend Lazarus was going to a better place why bring him back to life on earth?

In the meantime, at death, the cerebral function ceases; there is no more thought process, no more reward, no more memory, no more knowledge, and no more access to this world. Death terminates the individual’s interaction with this physical dimension of existence.

So, I ask: if there were no more life after death how do we enjoy life as a reward after death in heaven or suffer in life after death punished in hell?

“After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, ‘Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power to the Lord our God’ “ (Revelation 19:1).

I ask: who are you among the already dead have the extra ability to hear a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven? Poch Suzara
