22 Problems of the Philippines

22 big problems
SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH By Ernesto M. Maceda (The Philippine Star) Updated December 31, 2011

President Noynoy Aquino has to work overtime in 2012 if he is to meet the expectations of the people and fulfill his election promises. The following problems are crying for solutions:

1. Lack of jobs; 3 million unemployed; 8 million underemployed. He promised to create 10 million jobs in 6 years or 1.6 million a year;
2. High prices of food and other basic necessities including rice, sugar, cooking oil, gasoline, LPG, pork, chicken, fish and vegetables;
3. Petty corruption in the bureaucracy including kotong cops;
4. Criminality all over the country with an epidemic of riding in tandem murders;
5. Environmental enforcement including assurance of clean air, clean water and adequately coping with the challenges of climate change;
6. Bad roads aggravated by the slow pace of construction of roads and bridges all over the country, with money being siphoned off by corrupt officials and contractors;
7. Lack of 66,000 classrooms, 112,000 teachers, lack of computers and IT equipment in elementary schools;
8. Deterioration of education resulting in low scores in national achievement tests, high dropout rate and only 20 out of 100 grade school students entering high school;
9. Lack of basic health services in rural areas with poorly understaffed government hospitals with old equipment and lack of medicines;
10. Lack of progress in the peace process with the MILF and the CPP/NPA/NDF. NPA attacks have stepped up nationwide.
11. The very serious problem of illegal drug use and drug dealing corrupting a wide swat of local officials and police officers.

Other pressing problems include:

1. Inadequate and poor airport services earning for NAIA I the title of the worst airport in the world. NAIA 3 is not yet fully operational;
2. Lack of potable water in many rural areas. Wells are drying up. Prices of bottled water have gone up;
3. Lack of transportation facilities in the rural areas with the high cost of gasoline and poor farm to market roads. Sea transportation besides being expensive is unsafe;
4. Unbridled population growth rate with the population now reaching 100 million;
5. Lack of post harvest facilities and insufficient irrigation systems;
6. Lack of electricity in 30% of the barangays;
7. Lack of potable water in many areas;
8. Lack of equipment in the AFP and also in the PNP;
9. Slow pace of legislature and judicial reform with backlogs throughout the court system;
10. A very bad jail system with frequent escapes happening and corruption pervading the jail management authorities;
11. Deterioration and shameful performances in Philippine sports, placing 6th in the last Southeast Asian Games.

Comment: surely Ernesto M. Maceda has the guts to enumerate the problems that's keeping us Filipinos aimless as a people and directionless as a nation. But he would not elaborate on the real monster, the real source of the problems that's keeping us POOR as a people and BACKWARD as a nation. The FACT that we produce 3 babies every single minute of the day and night or 1.5 MiLLION BABIES yearly. We are now 100 MILLION FILIPINOS IN THE PHILIPPINES. Around the year 2042 WE WILL HAVE GROWN TO 200 MILLION FILIPINOS all BLESSED BY DEVILTRY AS INSPIRED BY DIVINITY FOR THE SAKE OF NOTHING EXCEPT TO PROTECT, SUPPORT, PROMOTE AND DEFEND CHRISTIANITY.

The greatest of wealth is mental health. There is nothing quite like it in all of nature. Conversely, the lowest form of poverty is the poverty of the mind and heart. There is nothing permanent in this world. Everything is temporary. Except death. It is permanent. Nobody dies partially. Everybody dies totally. With our precious freedom, however, especially the freedom of the mind and heart, we must only face and the make the most out of this life after birth. Never mind life after death. There isn't any. There is no such thing as a hereafter since there never was, for any of us - a herebefore! If we wish to make the best of this world in the here and now - we should find more reasons to recognize and foster the power of science and the beauty of technology - all based, if not founded upon the power of thought in tandem with the power of observation as inspired not by free will, but simply - good will If, however, we only have hopes to carry on our stupidity for as long as eternity - then we might as well only continue to have blind faith in our silly prayers under silly theology otherwise more popularly known as "Christianity" in our poor and backward country! For my New Year's resolution this year, - same as last year and the year before that ever since I was expelled out of La Salle high school some 65 years ago: I RESOLVE TO LIVE THE GOOD LIFE - ONE INSPIRED BY LOVE FOR THE HUMAN RACE and TO HELL WITH DIVINE DISGRACE ALWAYS IN CAHOOTS WITH THE DEVIL'S EMBRACE!! HAPPY NEW THOUGHTS, NEW IDEAS AND HAPPY NEW TRUTHS FOR THE NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU! Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

Let's Get to Know the real Jose Rizal

I said it before, I say it again: one can learn much about the real Jose Rizal not only by studying his writings; but more so by getting to know his real enemy - his killer, still here in control of Filipino minds and hearts via its schools, colleges, and universities - the Catholic Church. Indeed, the Catholic Church had Jose Rizal arrested, incarcerated, and executed and then even lied about him with a "retraction" story; in brief, that he died not as a heretic, but died as a penitent Catholic. Such retraction lie is still told about Jose Rizal by the Catholic church in the Philippines today in this already 21st century. Poch Suzara

Socrates Greater man than Jesus

Yes, Western civilization, with beauty and sanity at the start, unfortunately, in the long run got to be thrashed by Christianity for the sake of its big business at selling Jesus Christ as the Savior of the World and the salvation of man's soul.


how could we when in Catholic or Christian schools, during our formative years, we
were threatened to examine NOTHING but only to believe EVERYTHING.



Socrates on Top of Jesus

During his days Jesus cured diseases but not wholesale, only in retail. If Jesus
had, instead, cured diseases on a permanent basis, indeed, wholesale - by making not diseases, but HEALTH contagious, there would be no need for any one to build hospitals?

In the meantime, it was men like Socrates - one of the Founders of Western civilization who showed other men how to build a hospital to shelter the sick as caused by germs, viruses, bacteria - indeed, little deadly creatures created by God - the Father of the Savior of the world - Jesus! Poch Suzara

Jesus Christ - a Failure and a Loser

Jesus Christ, as the Savior of the world, was a failure; and, as the Son of God, he was a loser. He never saved the world, on the one hand; on the other hand, however, he only convinced billions of people to believe that after death, there is a better world to come. Nobody, however, but nobody knows anything about the existence of such a world to come after death. Moreover, Jesus never submitted to any one Road Map or Sky Map on how to go to heaven or to hell or to purgatory. As the Son of an all-knowing God, Jesus was a loser.

As the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, never transformed the concept of war into
a better purpose and that is the - WAR OF GOOD AGAINST EVIL, and not what precisely has been going on historically since time immemorial - the WAR OF EVIL AGAINST EVIL. Poch Suzara

Ignorance as God

Ignorance, to devout Christians is something sacred not only because they do not
know; but because they do not need to know. Indeed, Christians have been taught to believe that to question its teachings, or try to learn something new and fresh is a serious offense against faith; especially in the mysterious ways of God Almighty on earth as God is in heaven.

I Hate All religions

My dear reader -Have you ever heard of atheists hating and killing other atheists for not believing in God? What about the religious morons? When will they wake up to stop hating and killing each other in God’s name and for his glory in heaven, or in Allah’s name for his glory in paradise? Look at the TROUBLES in the history of our world. It is mostly about Catholics against Protestants. Protestants against Protestants. Christians against Muslims. Muslims against the Jews and Christians against each other. Is God really that cold-blooded in perfection, lost in self-admiration, always hungry for scenes that have only to do with death and destruction? Whatever happened to the beauty of renovation, or the art of reconstruction, or the idea of rehabilitation? In the meantime, I find it so laughable with people who pretend to be so worried that I am against as I hate religion. What are you people trying to say - that only believers have the right and privilege to hate other believers; but I have no right to hate ALL religions? Especially since all religions in this world have been nothing but more of a divine disgrace for the whole of the human race? I said it before, I say it again: FUCK NOT ONLY THIS OR THAT RELIGION, BUT FUCK ALL RELIGIONS. Indeed, the trouble in our world historically has never been about A TRUE RELIGION AT WAR AGAINST A FALSE RELIGION; NO, IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN MORE ABOUT FALSE RELIGION AT WAR AGAINST OTHER FALSE RELIGIONS.

Filipino Famous as The Sick Man of Asia

333 years under Christianity and 45 years under Hollywood – close to 400 years of foreign domination, and 113 years of independence under Christian values and beliefs is surely enough for Filipinos remain, more than ever - famous as the Sick Man of Asia. Poch Suzara

Free Will Stupidity

If we were told that we have the free will to choose not to go to heaven or not to go to hell, but free to choose neither heaven nor hell - just to leave us alone - then you might say we do, indeed, have free will! I asked it before, I ask it again: What chances have our free will against God's will especially since behind God is the Devil's free will also? Free will is nothing but holy garbage cooked in heaven and in hell to frighten man with original sin. In the meantime, a pregnant woman has the free will to abort her baby boy or girl. Well, what happened to the FREE WILL of said Boy or Girl in the womb - have they been given the free will to choose not to be born by freely choosing to go along with mom's deadly plan? Poch Suzara

Talking Serpent

God could talk to Adam and Eve at any time, but would not dare talk to the TALKING SERPENT to behave himself? What kind of a SILLY GOD was God? Was God just as frightened of the TALKING SERPENT? Just as much as the religious morons are all frightened of the Talking Serpent today? Poch Suzara

Jesus Freaks

Jesus had neither the beauty nor the power to give any kind of meaning for my life in any shape or form whatsoever. It is what Jesus did to all of my love-ones, relatives, friends and associates, classmates and school-mates in school, indeed what Jesus did to all of my countrymen - all frightened as victims rather than be the intelligent masters of religion. Such Jesus freaks continue to keep our country poor and backward at the price too dear to pay: - the mindless surrender of the self via the mutilation of the intellect. Poch Suzara

Revelation - as Second-hand Old and Useless Information

God may have revealed the truth to Moses in the Old Testament; and may have revealed the truth to Matthew, Luke, Mark, and John in the New Testament. But until God directly reveals the truth to me, I have the right to reject such revelation. I do not care to participate in the Christian scheme of hand me down unreliable old and useless information. Indeed, revelation is a direct communication; it has nothing to do with second-hand or third-hand pass the buck childish information. Poch Suzara

Steve Allen

“It was only when I finally undertook to read the Bible through from beginning to end that I perceived that its depiction of the Lord God--whom I had always viewed as the very embodiment of perfection--was actually that of a monstrous, vengeful tyrant, far exceeding in bloodthirstiness and insane savagery the depredations of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Attila the Hun, or any other mass murderer of ancient or modern history.”

God is not a Catholic

I am a publicly-declared, openly-avowed atheist. Thus, in our faith-soaked society, I am told that I need to see a psychiatrist to assist me solve my mental illness, if not to remedy my neurotic rebellion against authority. In brief, I am considered a danger to society as I am an individual with emotional troubles without a God to guide me to be on the right path. What is more ticklish about this situation, however, is that to label atheism as a psychological problem is a childish, indeed, a laughable attempt to evade the real issue whether there is a God or not? In the meantime, I already visited a Catholic psychiatrist. He could not prove to me the existence of God, nay, he could not prove to me that God is a Catholic! Happily, after much lively discussion, my Catholic psychiatrist friend is now interested to borrow my books on atheism to read off my personal library. Poch Suzara

Winter Solstice Greetings

WINTER SOLSTICE GREETINGS The earth has spent more time orbiting the sun than all the religions, all superstitions, all of humanity, and even of all life itself. The Winter Solstice represents an actual astronomical event unlike superstition driven celebrations that occur only in religious imagination. The exact day of the winter solstice marks the end of autumn, just one point along the orbital path of earth. The energy of the sun and the fertile earth, along with the over 4.5 billion winter solstices that have occurred, allowed enough time for all of earth's evolution to happen (and to continue to happen). This puts the Winter Solstice in a far more humbling position than anything invented by humans. Considering that the earth also comes closest* to the sun during the winter, what better time to honor the sun than during the Winter Solstice. The festivals of the Winter Solstice celebrate the start of the new solar year and the beginning of winter. The fantasies of superstition have also used this astronomical event to celebrate Saturnalia, Yule, Christmas, and many other superstitious events. The unknown builders of Stonehenge in southern England constructed the megaliths at around 2000 B.C.E. which makes it at least twice as old as Christianity. It accurately predicts both the summer and winter solstices. In astronomy, a solstice occurs two times a year. During the Winter Solstice the sun appears at its greatest distance from the celestial equator, the great circle on the celestial sphere that occurs on the same plane as the earth's equator. In the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice occurs either December 21 or 22, when the sun shines directly over the tropic of Capricorn. The winter solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. The sun appears at its lowest point in the sky, and its noontime elevation appears the same for several days before and after the solstice. The summer solstice occurs either June 21 or 22, when the sun shines directly over the tropic of Cancer. In the southern hemisphere, the winter and summer solstices appear reversed. It may seem contradictory that the earth comes closest to the sun during the winter and the farthest during the summer, but the seasons occur mostly because of the tilt away or toward the sun, rather than the distance from the sun. As atheists we do not celebrate the birth of Christ called Christmas. Instead, we celebrate the Winter Solstice. We do not care to celebrate man's capacity to believe; rather, we celebrate, all year round - man's great ability to think! After all, there is nothing quite like it in all of nature! . . .

Who Else has Heard of Jesus

There are 7,000,000,000 BILLION people existing on this planet earth today - HOW COME ONLY 1 OUT OF 7 people celebrate the BIRTH OF JESUS? How come, most Asian non-Catholic countries enjoy a higher standard of living and thinking? So much so these growing and developing Asian countries who never heard of Jesus are able to hire with bigger wages Filipino workers to wash their dishes, laundry their dirty cloths, drive their vehicles, cook for them, run their elevators, be janitors of their office and residential buildings, sweep their streets, etc??

What happened? How come these Asian countries never heard of Jesus who declared to his apostles in the HOLY BIBLE - a book written by inspired authors of God:

"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. "Go ye into all the world and make disciples of all the nations in my name" (Matthew 28:19).

So how come in all of Asia during these past 2011 years only the Filipinos in the Philippines love, worship, and adore Jesus as its Savior and at the same time - the Philippines is way, way behind in the race to achieve the higher standard of living and the higher standard of thinking as a nation otherwise more known as the race for civilization?"

God Bless the Devil in America

The historical joke in America can best be summarized in a few simple words: GOD BLESS AMERICA - THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE. I lived and worked in America for some 19 years. I eventually saw through the reality that as a matter of fact AMERICA IS THE LAND FOR THE SELFISH, THE GREEDY, THE STUPID, AND THE INSANE - precisely the ingredients one must have to attain great wealth, power, and SUCCESS more known as the American way of life. What America did to its native Indians and to its imported Black slave laborers from the African continent says much that it was not only God, but also the Devil who blessed America. Poch Suzara

The Worst Kind of Corruption

Dec. 22, 2011 Philippine Daily Inquirer Letter to the Editors Dear Sirs: The Worst Kind of Corruption Corruption in our country is not only endemic; it is pandemic. It is like a supernatural monster existing here, there, and everywhere. It is always hungry and needs feeding. The diet is unique: sacred lies marinated in holy deception then cooked with the power of education The worst kind of corruption, however, is the corruption of the mind and heart. The evil comes from our corrupt system of education. Look at the corrupt men and corrupt women in and out of government. They are the corrupt products of La Salle, Ateneo, Assumption, Letran, San Beda, Miriam college, University of Santo Thomas, University of the Philippines, Asian Institute of Management and all the rest of them that are commercial enterprises, hardly educational. Indeed, we are all born innocent, not corrupt. We are made corrupt during our formative years in school to believe in a lot of illusions and delusions that keep our society perpetually sick under national confusion. Indeed, we are not the rich masters of education. We are the poor victims of it. It is time that we Filipinos look seriously at our corrupt values and beliefs. Corruption has given us an image not of life, but of death. Ours, indeed, is a culture of corruption. A half-naked dead Son of God hangs on a cross in most of our homes, schools, hospitals, banks, sports arena, courts of Law, executive, legislative, judicial branches of government office, and indeed, especially around our own necks. It is not a symbol of self-respect as a people. It is not symbol of dignity as a nation. It is, indeed, a symbol of our failure as a people under the success of superstition in our poor and backward country. One of the greatest man this world has ever produced was a Filipino - our one and only Jose Rizal. He wrote two great books that shook the foundation of Christian power and authority over our minds and hearts as a conquered people. He proved with documentary evidence that we are not the brightened masters, but the frightened victims of Christianity. He was publicly executed in December 30, 1896 as authorized by his enemy. The enemy that never left the Philippines. She is still here with power, wealth, and glory popularly known as our "faith in God." Jesus, the Founder of Christianity, warned his disciples and followers: "If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethern, and yea, his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:26 Our Jose Rizal, always on the side of humanity, wrote: "The whole thought of my whole life has always been love of my country and her moral and material development." To Filipinos, he wrote in a manifesto: "My dream was my country's prosperity. . . I would like the Filipino to become worthy, noble, honorable, for a people who makes itself despicable for its cowardice or vices exposes itself to abuses and vexations." In the meantime, we Filipinos have yet to recognize why and how other foreign countries have also been substantiating Rizal's stand on the beauty of science and the power of technology. So much so that these foreign countries have been growing and developing. They are able to hire Filipinos to be their workers and laborers. Now estimated at 15 million Filipinos today residing and working in some 198 countries around the world. Such foreign countries have the free will to establish for themselves a higher standard of living and thinking. The life we conceive as a people is the life we achieve as a nation. With the birth of Jose Rizal in my mind and his death anniversary in my heart, I celebrate dearly what I envisage yearly - the Filipino capacity for love, beauty, knowledge, and the joys in life. Indeed, I celebrate the Filipino potential in creating social sanity, political integrity, religious rationality, economic prosperity, and historical sensibility. The struggle against corruption is everyone's business. Everyone is affected by it, therefore everyone should be responsible enough to take a genuine interest in efforts to admit it, confront it, and to eradicate it. We might begin to admit that the lies and deceptions making for our sick society are not constructive invocations but have been and still are utterly destructive revelations.

Human Misery, Human Tragedy

With or without natural disasters such as flood-hit areas in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao - millions of Filipinos in this only Christian country in Asia struggle to survive with no clean water, no toilet facilities, no shelter, no 3 square meals a day, no medicine, no schools, no hospitals, no hope for a better future. But they are told again and again that GOD WILL PROVIDE FOR THEM if not in this life, in the next better world to come after death known as heaven in the KINGDOM OF GOD. Even the head of the Vatican Bank - the richest, wealthiest, the most powerful bank in the world today - The holy Father - Catholic Pope - offers nothing but silly PRAYERS and CONDOLENCES to alleviate such human misery, such human tragedy in this only Catholic country in Asia today. In the meantime, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly - we Filipinos have always prayed faithfully to God to help us remedy poverty out of our sick society. This has been going on since the 16th century. Today, in this already 21st century - nothing has as yet happened; in fact, things are just getting out of control, especially our population growing - now at 100 million Filipinos in this only Catholic country in Asia. However, as the results of our daily prayer have been not about something, but only about nothing, what we are told to do is to pray more, pray harder, and pray longer. Obviously, it is getting more and more obvious that as the Sick Man of Asia we have only been praying to a sick God who is just as sick here, sick there, and sick everywhere. Poch suzara

Christianity Seriously

Yes, we should take Christianity seriously; especially if we hope to continue having faith in human stupidity perpetually. After all, silly divinity inextricably mixed and always in cahoots with silly deviltry, especially in the Philippines, spells - Christianity. Poch Suzara

Jesus in the Bible

In La Salle grade school we were repeatedly told that God is not only here, is not only there, is not only everywhere, but that God is also present in the past, present in the present, and present in the future. But we were also frightened to believe that we must always seek and find God in order to save our souls damned in hell after death.

Do you see now why, in this God-forsaken and devil-taken only christian country
in Asia, millions of us Filipinos have been schooled to carry on our popularity throughout the world as the Sick Man of Asia?

In the holy bible, as written by inspired authors of God, Jesus clearly declared: "WHOSOEVER SHALL NOT RECEIVE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS A LITTLE CHILD, HE SHALL NOT ENTER THEREIN." Mark 10:15

I asked it before, I ask it again: When will you college-educated frightened morons begin to grow up and contribute to the spiritual growth of the Filipino as a people; and, contribute as well as to the intellectual maturity of the Philippines as a nation?

Must we remain forever on our dumbstruck knees waiting for the Second Coming of Jesus to remedy the ills of our sick society? Especially for the glory of God in hell always in cahoots with the devil in heaven? Poch Suzara

Bible And the Constitution

Mar Patalinjug wrote, and I quote" "The Constitution should be read, understood and interpreted as it is WRITTEN--which is as clear as a legal document could get.
Any "ambiguity" or "lack of clarity" must be the invention of Litigants who have a pecuniary or other reason deliberately not to understand and interpret it AS WRITTEN."

Exactly the same thing should apply with the holy bible. We must read, understand, and interpret it as a religious book written by inspired authors of God.

Unfortunately, due to fear, fear of God, fear of the devil, fear of the unknown, and fear of death, we ignore all the contradictions, inconsistencies, absurdities, obscenities, and atrocities written in the holy bible. Poch Suzara

Free Will is a Serious Joke

Yes, oh Yes, we all have the free will to produce children. Now the question is: where is that same free will of said children to choose whether it wants to be born a girl or a boy or even to choose not to be born at all. Or, to choose the kind of mother and father they would want to have?Free will is a serious joke. Poch Suzara

The Multiplication Table Not Inspired

Do you and your religious gang on these pages, in this forum, have the same problem, the same conflict, the same disagreement, the same need for understanding THE MULTIPLICATION TABLE? Now have you ever heard of the MULTIPLICATION TABLE was written by INSPIRED authors of God?

If simple thinkers can come up with the MULTIPLICATION TABLE as the perfect model of truth, as it is precise and certain and free from all temporal dross, free from contradictions, inconsistencies, absurdities, obscenities, and free from atrocities - why couldn't GOD do exactly the same thing with his INSPIRED authors writing the so-called HOLY BOOK?

No One is completely Useless

Mar Patalinjug, A teacher in grade 6 La Salle once told me in class that I was a totally useless student. I replied: "No one is completely useless, because the most horrible of us at least serves as a horrible example to others not to emulate." After I was expelled, I embarked on a self-education course. I gradually came to realize that it was my teachers in school who were the ones totally useless for me never to emulate. Indeed, there is greater value in learning HOW to think than learning WHAT to believe. During this Christmas season, while millions will be celebrating the birth of Christ, I would like instead to celebrate with you and Helen, Manny, John, Litton, Emily, Tolo, Peewee, Bobby, Louie, Gil, Frank, Doug, joe Assad, Danding, Nancy, and the rest in our communion of thinkers - the birth of man's capacity for ethical, moral, and philosophical development in love, beauty, knowledge, and the joys in life. More power to all of you in the years to come! Poch Suzara, 2011

Scientific Way of Thinking

Between one philosopher compared to a thousand theologians, I would first listen to Bertrand Russell: He made it clear that - "freedom is the supreme good; for without freedom personality is impossible. Life and knowledge are today so complex, that only by free discussions can we pick our way through errors and prejudices to that total perspective which is truth. Let men, let even teachers, differ and debate; out of such diverse opinions will come an intelligent relativity of belief which will not readily fly to arms; hatred and war come largely of fixed ideas or dogmatic faith. We think of education as the transmission of a certain body of settled knowledge, when it should be rather the development of a scientific habit of mind." Now, if you want to learn to be scientific in your way of thinking: you must first learn to value observation, and your conclusion from that observation must be tentative as the conclusion itself must still be under further investigation by way of experimentation. Science is always about lively analysis. The scientific way of thinking has nothing to do with deadly paralysis. In the meantime, science is always tentative. It is never definite or dogmatic. Science is always ready and willing to admit its own errors as science has been and always will be a self-correcting enterprise. As I am an individual in love with the scientific way of thinking, I may seem bleak and cold, arrogant or impertinent - to those of you who would rather remain frightened of Christian values and beliefs. But as I learned to muster enough intellectual courage to question everything, I have also learned to thrust fear out of my thoughts, and this lesson, once learned, brings a kind of peaceful sanity which is impossible to those of you still bamboozled by grade school fairy tales - threatened into us during our so-called "formative years." In the ultimate analysis, I said it before, and I say it again: due to, if not because of, Christian values and beliefs as the basis of Filipino custom and tradition, we never celebrate the rise of scientific intelligence to benefit our country's growth and development; on the contrary, we only celebrate the traditional and customary ways of Catholic mediocrity to maintain, support, and defend the horrors that make famous as a sick society.

Understand our World

When the real world is not sufficiently flattering we all tend to take refuge in a world of make believe, where all our desires are gratified without great effort. This is the essence of fear, especially the fear of thought. It is also the source of the great religions and myths that have done more harm than good in this world.

For my part, I would rather understand the world and, if I can, change it. After all, understanding the world and the desire to change it are the two great engines of progress, without which, human society, especially our society, will remain as sick as ever; especially for God's glory in heaven. Poch Suzara

A college Educated Filipino

Owners of schools, College and university owners ought to be the promoters of civilization. Teachers and professors ought ought to be the guardians of a sane and a healthy society.

We think of education as the transmission of a certain body of settled knowledge. On the contrary, education ought to be about the development of a scientific habit of mind. Indeed, learning as a process of lively analysis, and not a matter of deadly paralysis.

It is sad and painful to see college educated men and women of this country carry a heavy load of useless guilt on their backs. They even believe
it as being blessed by God with peace and joy in life. As a matter of historical fact, they are intellectually crippled by its destructive weight. It is, in this way, that they readily serve a silly divinity up there rather than play vital roles in the development of sanity of our country via its growth and maturity down here.

I said it before, I say it again: A college educated Filipino who is always worried whether his soul might saved or might be damned usually has a soul that isn't worth saving or worth a damn. Poch Suzara

A Worthless God

Dear Bob Gabuna, It is incredible how you miserably fail to see the difference. Neither the wind nor heat nor electrical current would bother to threaten any of us with hell-fire eternal damnation if we do not believe freely in their existence. Now your God, so emotionally insecure, so unstable in character, so much of an egomaniac would easily get hurt or feel needlessly offended if we do believe in his existence. I said it before, I say it again: Such a God is a childish God and therefore NOT worth believing, loving, respecting. Such a God needs psychiatric treatment in an insane asylum. Cheers! Poch Suzara

Not the Healthy Masters, but The Sick Victims of Christianity

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 sacred lies and holy deceptions otherwise more known as "free will." Such as to believe that a 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 existing without running water, without toilet facilities, living in cart, Nipa huts, or under bridges, indeed, living in the dirty 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, to 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, since the 16th century, the sick victims of Christianity! Poch Suzara Twitter# facebook# Google#

The Joys of Fucking, to Hell with Thinking

Most men enjoy the pleasures of fucking rather than they do enjoy the joys of thinking. Most women would also readily participate in the joys of fucking rather than they do enjoy the pleasures of thinking.

How else could we explain why we are now 7,000,000,000 BILLION people living on this fragile planet? Many of us are even asking the rest of us to please respect our religious beliefs which has nothing whatsoever to do with the joys of cogitating or the pleasures of thinking. Poch Suzara

Holy Bible Jewish Garbage

Do we really need to read ancient literature in order to be able to see God? Which God? The supernatural monster who impregnated one of his own daughters Mary to produce a grandson named Jesus Christ. Indeed, a so-called Savior born some 2,000 years ago in a foreign land that never got to be converted into a Catholic country as it is still a Jewish State!

I am an atheist. I have more love and respect for my parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents than I have love and respect for the stupid foreigners who colonized and ruined my country in God's name and for His glory in heaven.

Again, I ask you my dear reader: HAVE YOU EVER MET ANY ONE WHO HAS BEEN BLESSED BY GOD? Blessed how? By living a life of fear and ignorance and obedience?

I said it before, I say it again: TO HELL WITH ALL THAT HOLY BIBLE JEWISH GARBAGE!

Obedience to God's Words

Today published in the Philippine Star: "OBEDIENCE TO GOD'S WORDS IS THE RECIPE FOR SPIRITUAL SUCCESS." Dec. 9,2011

What a brazen lie! We Filipinos have always been frightened in school and at home to always obey God's word. Look at the results in this already 21st century: We are so successful but only at being spiritually heartless, morally rudderless, politically aimless, economically mindless, culturally directionless, and historically reckless!

I said it before, I say it again: TO HELL WITH SPIRITUAL STUPIDITY IN THIS ASIA'S ONLY CHRISTIAN COUNTRY since the 16th century. Poch Suzara

God as a Perfect Monster

Please read and understand your bible. In Isaiah 45:7 God said: 'I FORM THE LIGHT AND CREATE DARKNESS: I MAKE PEACE AND CREATE EVIL: I THE LORD DO THESE THINGS." As for me to freely love, freely respect, freely worship, or freely believe such a supernatural Weirdo, nay, such a divine Maniac or such a perfect Monster - NO WAY, JOSE! OVER MY DEAD BODY.

Jesus Christ

"COMING TO CHRIST IS NOT MERELY INFORMATIONAL; IT'S TRANSFORMATIONAL." Published in the Philippine Star. Indeed, from the wealthiest and healthiest people in all of Asia before Christianity arrived to colonized the Philippines, we are now the SICK MAN of ASIA in this already 21st century. Thanks to the Son of God Jesus, who is not only informational, but also transformational. It is only after death that we Filipinos look forward to meeting Jesus in heaven. As Jesus, however, promised to return some two thousand years ago, I am about the one and only exceptional Filipino who is looking forward to meeting Jesus in person right here and now. Indeed, I hope and pray that Jesus will soon return. In this way, he can begin to straighten out the mess caused by Christian values and beliefs keeping the Filipinos spiritually poor as a people and the Philippines morally backward as a nation. In the meantime, as Jesus, however, has not only been informational, but also transformational, - what has the results been for us Filipinos in this only Christian country in all of Asia? Hate, fear, ignorance, filth, squalor, poverty, not to mention political mediocrity in cahoots with biblical insanity pretty much characterize our way of life. It is, indeed, not only damnable daily, weekly, and monthly, but also God-damnable yearly! Poch Suzara

I Celebrate Atheism, not Catholicism

Millions of Filipinos celebrate December 25 as the birth of a Jewish Lord, the
Son of God, known as Jesus Christ - born in a foreign land, some 2,000 years ago -
the so-called "Savior of the Filipinos.".

For my part, as an atheist, 365 days of the year - I celebrate daily the pleasures
in life - intellectual growth and philosophical development; the love of learning, happy, expansive, generous, glad when others are happy, not glad when others are not happy.

I celebrate the pursuit of the truth as the unexamined life, indeed, is not worth living. In brief, I celebrate daily the good life - one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Poch Suzara

Foul and Vulgar Messages Written in the Bible

The foul and vulgar language of Poch Suzara is rather amateurish compared to the foul and vulgar messages written in the holy bible - specially to tickle the ribs of the sick religious saps and jerks on these pages. “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean.” Matthew 23:27 “You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” Matthew 12:3 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?” Matthew 23:33 “But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?” Matthew 3:7 “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44 “For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5: "I form the light and create darkness: I make peace and create evil: I the Lord do these things." Is. 45:7 "For it is written, I will bring to nothing the wisdom of the wise, and will to nothing the understanding of the prudent." 1Cor.1:19 "For in much wisdom is much grief, and he increaseth knowledge, increaseth sorrow." Eccl.1:18 "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 in him." 1John 2:15 - Poch Suzara Google# Facebook# Twitter#

Indoctrinated, YES. Educated, NO!

For the sake of argument, let us define "education" not as the painful accumulation of dead facts and useless dates, but as an ennobling intimacy with lives of great men and women of history. Not as the preparation of the individual to "make a living," but as the development of every potential capacity in him for the comprehension, control, and appreciation of this world. Our World. Above all, let us consider education as the technique of transmitting as completely as possible, to as many as possible, that scientific, technological, intellectual, moral, and artistic heritage through which the race forms the growing individual that makes him a decent human being at home with the freedom of thought and sane action.

Under this definition, I must admit, openly or publicly, that if I had finished 6 years of La Salle grade school, 4 years of La Salle high school, and 4 years of college at De la Salle University, I still would consider myself today, not as an "educated Filipino" but only as a faith-soaked "indoctrinated Catholic" - useful to fear God up there by being utterly useless to love of my country down here.

Now, imagine our city councilors, city mayors, governors, congressmen, senators, and President as government officials - the products of Catholic schools, colleges, and universities. With all of them there is more fear of God up there and than there is love of country down here.

Indeed, love of country means the same thing as love of health and sanitation. Love of education. Love of ideas. Love of work. Love of commitment. Love of punctuality. Love of schedule. Love of law and order. And the most vital of all loves - no, not love of a divinity, but simply the love of fellow-citizens for the sake of our love of country. Poch Suzara
