Be Happy with Life

To be happy in life one must get rid of anything that is useless, ugly, fearful, and mindless; indeed, get rid of religion. Especially as religion is organized misery reduced to a system of sacred malarkey.

As religion promises, there is no such thing as a better life to come after death. This is the only the better life after birth. life may be short, brief, and fleeting. Let us, however, learn to be happy here, there, and everywhere while we are on this earth. We do this by making others also happy. Poch Suzara

Long Life

Everybody wants to live a long life. Nobody, however, wants to grow old. As for me, I do not mind growing old.

After all, old age, like any other age, is the time to struggle not only for human decency, but also to struggle for the joys of human liberty.

As an aside, old age must also be the time to devote more time for music - especially jazz music as I am a jazz drummer.

Playing the drums, however, is just one of my many creative hobbies. I also love reading, writing, cooking, gardening, cleaning, library building, and the most creative of all - endless questioning. Indeed, I still enjoy seeking more questions.
I don't care much for the answers. After all, questions are far more precious that the answers because the answers, in time, become obsolete. Poch Suzara

The Bible

The bible is like a compass - it always points the believer to the right direction. Phil Star 1/19/2011

In the Philippines, the only Christian bible believer country in Asia since the 16th century, we Filipinos have always been indoctrinated to follow the right biblical direction.

Indeed, right direction towards "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." 1John 2:15

But especially to follow Jesus in what He directed in the bible for family values:
"If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:26 Poch Suzara

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is coming. Some 1,845 times the bible speaks of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Indeed, numerically, it is probably the most emphatic teaching of the New Testament predicted more than 2000 years ago.

So why should we worry about bible telling us that when Jesus arrives - the causes
of earthly trouble and worry will be wiped out of this world forever? No more tears, no more pain, sorrow, and no more death. Rev. 21:4

Well, action speaks louder than words. We are now living in the 21st century. So where is Jesus? Especially in the Philippines - the one and only poor and backward Christian country in Asia since the 16th century? Poch Suzara


Jesus said: "You are the light of the world." Matt. 5:14. Paul said: "... For Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."

God said: "I form the light and create darkness: I make peace and create evil: I the Lord do these things." Is. 45:7

And to think in the beginning where all was in darkness, God said: "Let there be light: and there was light." Genesis 1:3 and in Genesis 1:4 "God saw the light and it was good."

Strange, isn't it, that God Himself was no part of bright light. He Himself had to get out of darkness by creating the good light! Poch Suzara

Good Tree and Corrupt Tree

The bible states: "Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bringeth forth evil fruit, neither
can a corrupt bring forth good fruit." Matt. 7:17-18

Now I ask you bible scholars please explain what the holy baloney was the purpose
of the creator for having created corrupt tree?

Are we to suppose to believe that God gifted the corrupt tree with a free will and therefore also guilty of the original corruption? Poch Suzara

The Search of the Truth

The search of the truth, no doubt, is a never-ending journey. Whatever the case may be, the search of the truth is man's most noblest of profession. Joyous and creative as that journey might be, we could, serendipitously, discover lies and deceptions along the way. It is, however, a great pity that the search of the truth has absolutely nothing to do with the system of education via our schools, colleges, and universities... In the meantime, the search for beliefs is man's most dangerous of ambition. Beliefs, especially "sacred" beliefs often based upon holy mediocrity that destroys the rare opportunities for social change, economic growth, political sanity, and cultural diversity.

The Messy Bible

"Many books inform, but only one transforms - the bible." Phil Star Jan. 24,2011

Indeed, the bible transforms; unfortunately, it has yet to transform the inspired authors of God to get out of the fine mess they all got into with bible contradictions, inconsistencies, absurdities, obscenities, and atrocities.

In the meantime, take a closer look at the Revealed Truth in the bible. For Christ's sake, it has yet to be revealed. Poch Suzara

University of the Philippines

I often hear the claim that U.P. offers the best college education in the Philippines. For my part, I find the claim rather dubious, if not meretricious. After all, most of U.P. college students are products of six years in Catholic grade school and four years in Catholic high school. There are more than 1,200 schools, colleges, and universities established and owned and operated by the Catholic church and its affiliates in the Philippines. Thus, how can 4 years of U.P. college education overwhelm 10 years of praying via the neglect of precious learning? In the meantime, in our corrupt government, many of its congressmen and senators are products of U.P. They are just as corrupt carrying on our corrupt way of life as the Sick Children of Asia. The Philippine government has yet to take courageous measures to radically reform, strengthen, and in fact rescue the sick system of education. If I had my way, I would abolish heavenly education out of our country. I would abolish religion. I would, instead, replace it with more science, with earthly education - how to be prepared for this life, and to hell with preparation for the next life. There isn't any. There is only this life; especially in this country. Our country that need no more salvation for a silly divinity; but need only more civilization for humanity in the here and now.

The American Dream Overseas

The American dream overseas has been about concocting crimes in foreign countries and then present American military power as the best policemen in the world. It has also been about creating fire in foreign countries and then present American military power as the best fire-fighters in the world.

Such, in brief, has been the American Dream overseas. Especially since the end of World War Two.

Today, America is falling apart as a world power. 50 million American children, and increasing daily, are officially described as living in poverty. Their mothers and fathers too, 100 million of them, are also bankrupt. They have lost their jobs. And to think that the task of rebuilding America falls with American children and their children. Hopefully, it is not yet too late. America can still be transformed to be the real God Bless America - the real land of the free and the real home of the brave. Poch Suzara

Why I left the Catholic Church

Catholic theologians know all about God on earth as God is in heaven. That God is "almighty, eternal, holy, immortal, infinite, immense, immutable, invisible, just, loving, merciful, most high, most wise, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, patient, perfect, supreme, and true." But none of these well-informed Catholic theologians could answer my simple question: who amongst my dead grandparents, dead great grandparents, dead uncles, aunties, cousins, nephews, nieces, and dead in-laws, dead friends and dead teachers and mentors happily made it to heaven; and, who are the ones now suffering eternal fire burning in hell? Indeed, theology is purely based upon ignorance reduced to a system of lies and deceptions. But the real reason why I left the Catholic was due to the fact that just like every one else, I too was born an atheist. Indeed, coming out of mother's womb, I had no concept of a God in heaven or a devil in hell. However, after birth, I was raised and educated as a Catholic; especially to believe in the Son of God Jesus. Well, much to my consternation, I eventually discovered by reading the bible that Jesus himself was not a Catholic. He was never baptized by Catholic priests. Also, God himself, the Father of Jesus, was never ever a Catholic God. Poch Suzara

Holy Mary, Mother of God

Can we really imagine during the past 2,000 years in Catholic countries; and, 450 years in the Philippines - how we have all been praying daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly to "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, amen."

Isn't it getting ridiculous that Mary, the Mother of God has never given even two hoots to our endless prayers?

Look how in this already 21st century, as the Sick Man of Asia, we Filipinos are only getting more degraded as a people and getting more downgraded as a nation, simply because we are still waiting as we still have much faith in the promises of Mary, the Mother of God will be around during the hour of our stupid death, amen.

For my part, I said it before, I say it again: FUCK DEATH! Poch Suzara

Sanctimonious Lie

Are we Filipinos really the most religious people in all of Asia? It is a sanctimonious lie. In fact, we are the most religiously corrupt.

As a matter of historical fact, we are, on the contrary, the most irreligious people in all of Asia.

Indeed, religion has nothing to do with miracles, prayers, virtues, or believing a better life to come after death. Religion does not consist in having faith in God
up there, or, believing in His only begotten son Jesus as our Savior down here.

Religion is simply adding to the human welfare - indeed, to the human happiness of man in this world.

We are all born ignorant, not stupid. We are made stupid by the power of Christian education in the Philippines. Look how, in this already 21st century, we Filipinos still love a silly divinity up there. We hardly give a goot for common humanity down here. Poch Suzara

Jose Rizal Never Said

Jose Rizal never said: "The Catholic church is worth dying for." Well, even so, Rizal was executed in pubic by the Catholic church. In fact, the Catholic priests even declared that hours before he was executed, Rizal "retracted" and died not as a heretic but as a penitent Catholic. Indeed, that hours before he was executed - Rizal cried like a frightened little boy and begged for confession, mass, and communion because he regretted much to have authored two great novels about the sins and the crimes behind the wealth, power, and glory of the Catholic Church in the Philippines.

Now I ask: Why should we believe the Catholic priests? They have never ceased to tell us brazen lies about the way Jose Rizal died? Rizal himself already told us the truth not only about the way he lived and work3ed, but also about the lies and deceptions of the Catholic church? Especially in its teachings in schools, colleges, and universities in the Philippines? Poch Suzara

Letter to PDI Editors

Philippine Daily Inquirer
Letter to the Editors
Dear Sirs:

The Greatest Filipinos in Philippine History

For his courageous defense of the cause of Filipino priesthood, Father Burgos earned for himself the name "Champion of the Cause of the Filipino Clergy." He incurred, however, the hatred of the Spanish Catholic friars. Thus, when the Cavite mutiny broke out in 1872, the Spanish authorities arrested him together with Father Gomez and Father Zamora, charging them of having incited the revolution. After a mock trial at Fort Santiago Kangaroo court on February 15, 1872, they were sentenced to die by means of the garrote, a Catholic strangulation by an iron collar tightened by a screw. On February 17, 1872, they were executed in Bagumbayan, now the Luneta.

Of course, since the rebellion of Fr Gomez, Burgos, and Zamora had no impact against the Catholic Church on the international arena - there was no need to concoct a RETRACTION story about the rebellious activities of these 3 Filipino Catholic priests.

On the other hand, Jose Rizal exposed via his two novels - the NOLI and FILI - for the whole world to discover the religious malarkey keeping the Filipino impoverished as a people and the Philippines backward as a country. Like Fr. Gomez, Burgos, and Zamora, Rizal, with trump-up charges by a Kangaroo court, was also publicly executed. The Spanish Catholic friars defending and protecting the religious industry of the Catholic church - had to concoct the RETRACTION garbage about the death of Jose Rizal - so that he will end up as just one ordinary Filipino Catholic who died penitent and regretted having challenged the wealth, power, and glory of Catholicism in this only Catholic country in Asia.

I said it before, I say it again: If we Filipinos in this already 21st century are still stuck and famous as the Sick Man of Asia - it is simply because we are still being educated and guided NOT with sane Rizalism; but indeed, we are still ruled and dominated in our own country by insane Catholicism.

On the Rizal Retracting Issue

Jan 21, 2011 Phil Daily Inquirer Letter to the Editors >Dear Sirs: On the Rizal Retracting Issue I ask: Why is it only taught in our schools, colleges, and universities that the greatness of Rizal had nothing to do with his life's devotion to the search of the truth via questioning, writing, thinking, analyzing, and discovering the power and the beauty of science? But only everything to do with his death, with his so-called silly retraction? Indeed, in our spiritually poor and morally backward country - we are still being educated to believe and to have faith in how great Filipino thinkers and writers DIED for love of divinity; but hardly do we know about how they lived for love of country and indeed, love for humanity. So Rizal retracted before he was put to death. So, so what? The fact remains that the wealth, power, and glory of the Catholic church - the killer of Rizal is still here pretty much in control of the minds of Pinoys and hearts of Pinays to believe and to have faith in a lot of holy baloney, if not to have faith in a bunch of sacred malarkey, not to mention biblical absurdities. As the Sick Man of Asian, let's take a closer look inside our banks, hospitals, lawyer's offices, doctor's clinic, government offices, stores, buses, jeepneys, taxis, trains, nipa huts, expensive homes, filthy rich palaces, etc, - we find the photo of Jesus Christ - a foreigner, born a Jew in a Jewish land, sired by Jewish parents, living under a Jewish custom, tradition, and culture. But hardly do we find inside our schools, colleges, and universities photos of one of the greatest Filipino this whole world has ever produced - Jose Rizal. I said it before, I say it again: as one human being to another, if we can still believe that there exist something precious outside human existence - then we are just as pathetic as any lunatic proud and happy as a Catholic. In the meantime, in this already 21st century - thanks to our religious values and biblical beliefs - life in general in the Philippines is nothing but a competition to be the criminal or be the victim of criminals. You meet such criminals in charge of our schools, colleges, and universities, and indeed, in charge of our government. Yours In Rizal, Poch Suzara

God Bless Holy Baloney

Each and every one of us, whether we are young or old, rich or poor, fat or thin, married or single, in sickness or in health - have our share of troubles in this world. My dear reader, I ask you: have you ever met any one who has NO troubles at all - in any shape or form in life simply because he or she has been blessed by God? Now what I need to know what exactly is this "God Bless you" holy malarkey all about? How blessed are you or any one else by God? Are you truly that blessed because God has provided for you with a healthy, happy, and free from troubles situation in life? Well, what about the millions of Filipinos who are poor, with no home, no food, no medicine, no running water, no toilet facilities, no future, and yet they pray daily to God to "give us this day our daily bread," and "lead us not into temptation!" Isn't it time to accept the plain truth that this GOD BLESS YOU utterances is based on a lot of holy baloney? Poch Suzara


Is health a gift from God? Is health the result of prayer to God? We are told that health is the greatest of wealth. Perhaps, in space, but not in time. Indeed, life is so brief, short, and fleeting. Think of it: the day we are born is the day we begin to live in a dying body. Now we are also told that God created man in his own image and likeness. Is this some sort of a joke? Why would God create man only to be dying sooner than later? More to the point: why would God, our creator, be interested in us not while we live, but only after we are dead? Don't we humans need a God who is lively; not a God who is deadly? Poch Suzara

Everybody Knows

Everybody knows that the truth has been revealed, but nobody knows what the truth is.
Everybody knows the soul is immortal, but nobody knows what the soul is.
Everybody knows that the will is free, but nobody knows what the will is.
Everybody knows the mind of God; but nobody knows who or what God is. In fact, nobody knows whether God is a He or a She or an It. What we know is that God is an invisible spirit. As if that is evidence enough to believe that God created man in his own invisible image and His likeness in spirit. Poch Suzara

Life's Purpose

As an atheist, I refuse to believe that life's only purpose is to find happiness. To examine one's life and finding and knowing one's self is far more precious. And then, indeed, to make life worth living - why must be truthful and useful and compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have had a reason for having lived on this earth. Thus, to leave this world one day a better place than how we found it. In the meantime, as an atheist, for me to believe that I can find and enjoy more happiness, but only after I am dead with God in heaven I consider such thoughts as the highest form of ridiculosity, if the the lowest form of ludicrosity. Poch Suzara

The Search for God

What makes human life tragic? The fact that we shall never find God in this life. But to continue searching for God in this life is, in the ultimate analysis, not only a holy baloney, but a mockery of what human life should be.

In the meantime, we are told that man's greatest goal: bringing glory to God. On the contrary, man's greatest stupidity is wasting his time and energy in this world praying to a silly entity otherwise more known as a mysterious divinity. Poch Suzara

The Death of Great Men

Death diminishes us all; especially the death of great men like the death of Jose Rizal. He proved himself most deserving to live the good life - one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Unfortunately, the mediocre and the Philistines had him executed. Then they told brazen lies about how Rizal died pathetic as a penitent Catholic. Poch Suzara

Pray for Us Sinners

We Filipinos are, indeed, the Sick Man of Asia. Daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly, we Filipinos continue to pray to God to lead us not into temptation. As the losers in the fight against temptation, however, we have no other recourse but to pray also to Mary, Mother of God, to pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, amen." Poch Suzara, Facebook# Google# Twitter#


The theologians have often declared that wisdom comes only through suffering especially for the glory of God. Well, if this were true, then the souls suffering eternal damnation in hell are enjoying wisdom. While the souls enjoying eternal salvation in heaven with God are enjoying stupidity. Poch Suzara

Frank Sinatra

Alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy. -- Frank Sinatra quotes (American Actor and Singer, 1915-1998)

For my part, I say, religion is man's greatest enemy. Well, the bible says we must love religion. I certainly do. The sooner, however, religion is dead, buried, and gone - I will love this enemy even more. Poch Suzara


Hope has its own trouble too. We just have to keep on hoping. There seems to be no end to it. For example, I still have an endless hope that one day before I leave this world, it will be a saner, cleaner, and a peaceful world. Poch Suzara


To add on to your sense of defeatism - none of the higher mental faculties are required for conservatism. The exact opposite of liberalism. As for me, in order to keep on generating the values of liberalism, I'd rather stimulate in myself and in others - the power and the beauty of intellectualism. Poch Suzara

God does not Exist

I have been asked: since I do not believe in the existence of God, why am I angry
at God? Well, I am angry precisely because there is no God to fix the problems and troubles of our world. But then again, in the ultimate analysis, if God exists, I should be grateful to God for having created me as an atheist. Poch Suzara

Health In What

We are told that health is the greatest of wealth. Perhaps, only in space, but not in time. After all, Life is so brief, short, and fleeting. In fact, the day we are born is the day we begin to live in a dying body. In this connection, it has got to be some sort of a silly joke when we are also told that God created dying man in his own dying image and dying likeness. Poch Suzara

Bertrand Russell On China

"I have come to realize that the white race isn't as important as I used to think it was. If Europe and America kill themselves off in war it will not necessarily mean the destruction of the human species or even an end to civilization. There would still be a considerable number of Chinese left; and in many ways China is the greatest country I have ever seen. It is not only the greatest numerically and the greatest culturally, but it seems t be the greatest intellectually. I know of no other civilization where there is such open-mindedness, such realism, such willingness to face the facts as they are, instead of trying to distort them into a particular pattern." Bertrand Russell wrote the above in 1921, Today in this 21st century already over taking America, we can all see China as a world power on the rise not because of militarization, but precisely due to the power of science and technology, and indeed, the power of hard work otherwise more known as industrialization.

Good Example versus Good Advice

"A good example has more value than good advice." Published today in the
Phil Star 1/11/2011.

Indeed, I entirely agree. However, why should God tell us how to raise our children when, by example, God himself, drowned His?

In the bible, we are told that God created the world in six days; and on the seventh day, God rested.

I think mankind would have enjoyed a more peaceful and delightful world if God had not rested, but instead, on the 7th day, God had compassion for what He had created? After all, compassion put into action is love and love has only to do with priorities; it has nothing to do with options. Poch Suzara

Thinkers Verses Believers

To be a thinker is hard. To be a believer is easy. To be a liar is even easier. That is why our world has always been ruled not by intelligent thinkers; but by the stupid believers always in cahoots with the stupid liars. Poch Suzara

The Sick Children of Asia

We Filipinos are, indeed, the Sick Children of Asia. Every day we pray to God to give us this day our daily bread and to lead us not into temptation. Poor as we are as a people even to fight strongly against temptation, we have no other recourse but to also pray to "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, amen." I said it before, I say it again: we are not the Sick Man; we are the Sick Children of Asia! Poch Suzara

Money and Honey

Man gives love in order to get sex. Woman gives sex in order to get love. All is fine and dandy as goes the story for the sake of human decency.

Trouble, however, arises when her man continues to give to other women more love for the sake of more honey. She too gives more sex to other men for the sake of more money.

For my part, I believe in the power of love. I believe it enough in the sense that to the woman I love, I wish her to be free, even free to be away from me. I wish her to go places in life and not just be taken for a ride.

In the ultimate analysis, love can only last for as long as the lovers mutually love a variety of things together and not merely love each other. Poch Suzara

Rizal and Which God

I am told that Rizal believed in God while he was being shot by a God-Blessed, God-inspired, and God-loving Firing Squad.

I ask: which God did Rizal believe - the God of the Catholics or the God of the Protestants?

Now in our schools, colleges, and universities we were taught ( by the killers of Rizal ) to believe and to have faith - that there is only ONE GOD.

Well, again, I ask: If it is true that there is only ONE GOD, why then would such GOD formulate in his First commandment: "THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME."

Again, I ask: Where did those other GODS come from: Which higher God created those other lower GODS? And which God did Rizal embrace while he was being shot to death
for the glory of which God in heaven or which God in hell? Poch Suzara
