We welcome the pain of Problems

"As Benjamin Franklin said, 'Those things that hurt, instruct.' It is for this reason that wise people learn not to dread but actually welcome problems and actually welcome the pain of problems." M. Scott Peck, Psychiatrist If I may add, there is neither spiritual growth as a man or as a woman nor intellectual development as a human being without problems. Therefore we should welcome the pain of problems. Good news make us weak. Poch Suzara, Atheist

Jose Rizal to stay DEAD in the Philippines

"The death sentence is a necessary and efficacious means for the Church to attain its ends when obstinate heretics disturb the ecclesiastical order." Pope Leo X111 (Vincenzo Pecci, 1810-1903) ---------- HELLO YOU KILLERS OF JOSE RIZAL - a heretic. HOW COME YOU ARE STILL HERE not only as a Church but also IN CONTROL OF FILIPINO MINDS AND HEARTS IN THE PHILIPPINES AS OWNERS OF SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, AND UNIVERSITIES; HOSPITALS AND BANKS; NEWSPAPERS AND TV STATIONS; and OTHER COMMERCIAL ENTERPRISES IN THIS ONLY CATHOLIC COUNTRY IN ASIA SINCE THE 16TH CENTURY!Poch Suzara

Happy Old Age

I got to be 76 years old this year. Friends and relatives are wondering why I am, as ever, still bullish against insane religion that's keeping us Filipinos spiritually poor as a people; and morally backwar as a nation! Indeed, both religion and politics in cahoots together keeping us Filipinos deprived away from the wonders of science only to stay famous as the Sick Man of Asia! Well, old age, like any other age, is the time to struggle away from silly biblical revelation. It is time to be involved with intelligent evolution. Indeed, human life on this earth should be about the struggle for humanity to enjoy human decency locally and to enjoy terrestrial sanity globally. Precisely, to put away all that silly business of divinity always in cahoots with deviltry. No doubt, it is a waste of time. It is an impossible dream. But my dear reader, what about you - how do you waste your precious time? You are accomplishing WHAT in this God-forsaken world of ours? Brief, short, and fleeting as life is on this earth! I said it before, I say it again: instead of looking forward to a better life to come after death, it makes more sense to try and leave this world a better place than how we found it. Not in the material, but in the humanitarian sense. Otherwise, there will be no reason for our having lived. In the meantime, today may be the last day of my life. Whatever or however the case may be, I am, as always, still happily singing loud and clear - my favorite song: "For, what is a man, what has he got, if not himself then he has not, to say the things he truly feels, and not the words of one who knees, the record shows I took the blows, and did it MY WAY! It is, in this way, that I continue to be a man of vision, ambition, and revolution. I have more than enough ingredients to carry on my lifetime struggle against the evils of revelation. Poch Suzara

The One and Only Verse I respect written in the Bible

Here is the one and only verse I have the highest respect written in the bible: "You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; neither shall you testify in court to side with a multitude to pervert justice." Exodus 23:2 As for the rest written in the Old Testament and in the New Testament they should be totally thrown out the window. I did! In the meantime, I repeat with Dan Barker: Atheism is a worldwide movement today without followers. We atheists, in our respective field of work, are all leaders! Poch Suzara, Atheist

Filth and Pornography in the Holy Bible

“Because of you I will rebuke your descendants; I will smearon your faces the dung from your festival sacrifices, and you will be carried off with it." Malachi 2:3 "THOU SHALT EAT IT AS BARLEY CAKES, AND THOU SHALT BAKE IT WITH DUNG THAT COMETH OUT OF MAN, IN THEIR SIGHT." Exek. 4:1 "hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss withyou?" (II Kings 18:27 "Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt. For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses." Exek 23:19-21 "And lusted after her paramours there, whose members were like those of donkeys, and whose emission was like that of stallions." Ezekiel 23: 21, NRSV) If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days. Deut 22:28-29 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? ... Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. Numbers 31:15-18 Comment: it is indeed despicable how in this already 21st century college educated Filipinos still believe the bible as a holy book written by inspired authors of God. As a matter of fact, the bible is really a lot of BIBULLSHIT that should have already been flushed down the TOILET centuries ago. Poch Suzara

Come on you Frightened Jesus Freaks

Come on you frightened Jesus freaks. WAKE UP! There is poverty of the worst kind:
The poverty of the mind and heart. It is what our schools, colleges, and universities are mostly about: DO NOT THINK. JUST BELIEVE.

And famous as we Filipinos are as the SICK MAN OF ASIA, we are more proud and
ready to protect and defend the ways of our stupid BELIEVING; especially for the glory of Jesus up there. Hardly do we ever do intelligent THINKING for the sake of courageously establishing common Filipino decency down here! Poch Suzara

George Carlin on Religion

In the Bullshit Department, a businessman can't hold a candle to a clergyman. 'Cause I gotta tell you the truth, folks. When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it:

"Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time! But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story." Holy Shit! Poch Suzara

We All Need Jesus

There is no bigger hypocrite than the person who pretends he doesn't need Jesus. Phil Star, April 15, 2012 Oh yes, indeed, we all need Jesus, especially the officials in the government.

I am a Plagiarist, Scholar, and a Researcher

If you copy the works of one author, you are a plagiarist. If you copy the works of two authors, you are a researcher. If you copy from the works of three authors you are a scholar. If, however, you copy from the works of hundreds of authors you are a plagiarist, a researcher, a scholar all rolled into one Poch Suzara - a high school expelled student. Indeed, I copy from the works of hundreds of famous authors. And aside therefore from being a plagiarist, a scholar, and a researcher, I am also a high-school expelled writer. In my writings, I freely copy from the works of my favorite authors, historians, philosophers, and scientists. These great thinkers of the world have inspired in me to stand on their shoulders. Indeed, thanks to them, I managed to learn how too see wider, how to view higher, and how to fathom deeper, in that I may be enlightened, not forever be frightened like the dumbstruck religious teachers I was blessed with in La Salle grade school and high school years! I love the freedom of expression and I enjoy copying from many authors. To name a few: Bertrand Russell, Will Durant, Carl Sagan, Robert G. Ingersoll, Thomas Paine, Friedrich Nietzche Mark Twain, Charles Darwin, Alvin Toffler, Richard Dawkins, George H. Smith, John Horgan, Stephen Hawking, Lee Eisler, Clarence Darrow, Arthur Schopenhauer, Voltaire, Madlyn O’Hair, Jeremy Rifkin, H.L. Mencken, George Bernard Shaw, Lloyd Graham, Socrates, Noam Chomsky, Sam Harris, Dan Barker, Jean Meslier, Bishop John Shelby Spong, Hypatia, St. Augustine, Christopher Hitchens, Teodoro A. Agoncillo, Jose Rizal; and, indeed, many more such as Matthew, Luke, Mark, and John of the Holy bible who inspired in me to never be afraid to question authority as it always inspired by mediocrity, perpetually. Oh yes, there is nothing original in the works of authors. Except for mathematical logic, they all copy from each other as their various sources are inextricably mixed with other points of view. After all, there is no such thing as the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. It only looks new and fresh and logical; but it is not. For example, my own writings on atheism are mostly derived from what’s revealed in the holy bible as the bible, seriously read, has been and still is the most potent reason why we must all trust the simple fact that man's greatest of professions is the search of the truth as no truth, as yet, has ever been discovered! - Poch Suzara Google# Facebook# Twitter# Atheists# __._,_.___ Posted by: poch suzara

God as a Divine Monster

A God who tells Noah: TO HELL WITH LOVING YOUR NEIGHBORS. SAVE INSTEAD THE ANIMALS - is not a God but a divine monster. Never, will I ever believe, love, worship, and adore such a divine disgrace - the savior of animals, not the savior of the human race.

In the meantime, why should we listen and be afraid of such a God who tells us how
to raise our own children when He himself had drowned to death his own children? Poch

Jesus Christ - Our Savior

Jesus Christ said, "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive" (Math. 21:22). Each and every day, millions of believing Filipinos pray daily to God to "give us this day our daily bread," and to "lead us not into temptation." We also pray daily to "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, amen." As we, however, continue to be spiritually fucked as a people and even more morally fucked as a nation - would it not be adding insult to injury if we were yet expected to blame ourselves for our daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly stupidity behind our childish religiosity faithfully since the 16th century?

The Silly Fear of Death

“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.” ― Mark Twain “I believe that when I die I shall rot, and nothing of my ego will survive. I am not young and I love life. But I should scorn to shiver with terror at the thought of annihilation. Happiness is nonetheless true happiness because it must come to an end, nor do thought and love lose their value because they are not everlasting. Many a man has borne himself proudly on the scaffold; surely the same pride should teach us to think truly about man's place in the world. Even if the open windows of science at first make us shiver after the cosy indoor warmth of traditional humanizing myths, in the end the fresh air brings vigor, and the great spaces have a splendor of their own." ― Bertrand Russell "If after my own death, I shall have to be with God in hell, or have to be with the Devil in heaven, or have to be with Jesus in Purgatory - no way, Jose. Over my dead body. I'd rather stay buried in the cemetery with my precious books forever and ever till the end of time and space. - Poch Suzara

Don't Be a Useless Believer; Be a Useful Thinker

Nothing is more dangerous than an idea when you only have one. - Alain Chantier If I may add, this is precisely what is wrong with our formative years in school: Do not think. Just believe. Never mind the beauty of fresh thought or the power of ideas; especially to challenge the lies and deceptions that keep us Filipinos spiritually poor as a people, and intellectually bankrupt as a nation. In the meantime, the search for new and fresh ideas under creativity is by far the noblest of all human activities. Poch Suzara

If you believe that there is a separation of Church and State in the Philippines, you might as well also believe in the existence of the separation between insanity and stupidity. As a matter of historical fact, the union of Church and State in the Philippines is just like a good Catholic marriage: what God has united, let no man put asunder,-till death do us part. Both the Church and State protect each other, the former with forgiveness of sins and the latter with tax exemption laws. The job of the State is to keep the people living in ignorance. The job of the Church is to keep the people living in fear. Combine the two horrors inextricably together and we have what is known as Christian values and beliefs more known as the government off, buy, and fool the people under the slogan that it is MORE FUN AND SAFE IN THE PHILIPPINES. Indeed, the separation of Church and State in the Philippines is more than just a farce and a fraud, but also a charade of lies, --a parade of deceptions. Look seriously at our senators as judges in the impeachment trial to dump the Chief Justice Renato Corona out of office for betrayal of public trust and culpable violation of the Constitution. They start the trial not as leaders of our country, but like sinners themselves with prayer to God for the forgiveness of their sins and crimes. The need for religion in the Philippines will end when we Filipinos in our schools are taught to be strong and sensible enough to govern ourselves not as religious fanatic Catholics or what-not, but as self-respecting Filipinos, i.e., who believe in the power of reason and not believe in words written long time ago, by ignorant men who did not know what we know today and in all probability were influenced by the barbarity of a primitive age. Meanwhile, our officials in the Philippine government and the church hierarchy have always enjoyed an illicit secret affair together. They have illegitimate children otherwise more popularly known as "politicians" of the State, and the "theologians" of the Church. Such "leaders" are never lively with intelligent power of ideas for growth and maturity. They are only deadly with the power of daily prayer producing nothing but an obnoxious odor in the air - the bad smell of the Philippines dying as the Sick Nation of Asia. Hypocrisy and indifference to truth make corruption acceptable as part of our national defects. It is sad to see our government officials in cahoots with church officials devote so much faith in increasing and justifying such traditional nonsense. I said it before, I say it again: our leaders drunk with power are destitute of wisdom, and so long as they enjoy the glory of popularity - our country will be devoid of sanity and beauty on the one hand; and, on the other hand, filled with more of the same old misery and poverty perpetually. In the meantime, while there is more creativity in diversity, there is nothing but stupid religiosity in uniformity. And what we have in our sick country is the sick uniformity even in the art of bribery. We have yet to see our way clear that the bribe-giver is no worse than the bribe-taker because there is always in between, the bribe-fixer! There is also the fun of vote-buying, vote-selling, and vote block fixing. Indeed, again, when it comes to the life of crime and sin, graft and corruption - IT IS MORE FUN AND SAFE IN THE PHILIPPINES. There is a tremendous need for the rehabilitation of our damaged nation. If we ever hope to succeed in our revolution against political illusion, against religious delusion, and against social confusion - we must first see to it that there is no more divine revelation at the foundation of our sick and corrupt system of education. No more Immaculate Misconception; no more public prayer transformation; no more revealed Truth that has never been revealed. We need only science and technology and the wonders of its lively evolution. Millions of Filipinos ask: is there hope for our country? My answer is Yes, but first we must allow the nation's youth to learn during their formative years in school to believe not in a weird foreigner more known as Jesus, our alleged savior, but rather to believe instead in living decent life inspired by love of country and guided by the power of knowledge. Indeed, to feel the pleasures of mental growth and positive material achievement, to live, to learn and to love,- happy, generous, and expansive; thoughtful when others are happy, and even more thoughtful when others are not. These beauties should be permanent fixtures in the hearts and minds of our nation's youth after they go through many years of education in our schools, colleges, and universities. In the ultimate analysis, if we can set aside intellectual cowardice against the courage of ideas, there is much more to hope for our country. Indeed, it is high time for us Filipinos to accept the challenge to work for ourselves as a people. After all, this world is the only world we have. The only world where we can, here and now, create a paradise for ourselves as thinking people happy and proud of our existence with self-respect and dignity not as frightened Catholics, but as brave citizens of our Republic.

God is NOT all-knowing

GOD obviously did NOT know the past, the present, or the future. God had to test Adam and Eve because God did not know just exactly how Adam and Eve will pass or fail the silly test; that they may be found guilty or innocent of the Original Sin. As if, Adam or Eve ever originated anything to begin with. Too bad God did not also test the free will of the TALKING SERPENT; and to find out as well what sort of language it spoke. It must have been the sick language of the Sick Serpent of Asia - taglish. Poch Suzara

I don't Blame. but Thank God I am an Atheist

God inspired the Talking Serpent to bring down Adam and eve to be guilty of the Original Sin. The Talking Serpent's mission was a great success. Then God blamed Adam and Eve for being guilty of the Original Sin even if neither Adam nor Eve never originated anything in this world to begin with. For my part, I thank God, I thank the Talking Serpent, and I thank the Holy Bible lessons and messages, and I also thank a lot of you active members of this forum - you all make me proud and happy that I am an ATHEIST - indeed, I have no need for an invisible means of support.

God Will Save me JOKE

There was a small village by a river. One day in monsoon the villagers noticed that the river was swelling and the village was about to be flooded. Everyone left the village for safe ground, except for one man. He said, 'I have faith in God. He will save me.' The water level began to rise. When it rose up to his knees a car passed by and offered to pick him up. The man refused. 'Save me God', he prayed. The car left. When the water level rose up to his waist a boat came by and offered to help him. Again the man refused. The boat left. Again the man prayed to God to save him. When the water level rose up to shoulders a helicopter came to rescue him. Again the man refused, and kept on praying feverishly to God. Finally, he drowned. When he reached his creator he said, 'I had complete faith in you. Why did you ignore my prayers and let me drown?' God replied,' Who do you think sent you the car, the boat and the helicopter?'

"No kidding God," the man should have replied: "Who created the FLOOD to begin with? Poch Suzara

Holy Bibul Divine Family BullShit

"And call no man your father on earth, for you have one father, who is in heaven." – Matthew 23.9 In other words, our fathers did not impregnate our mothers, but God fucked our mothers when our fathers were out of town. I said it before, I say it again: FUCK THIS HEAVENLY HOLY FATHER BULLSHIT AS WRITTEN IN THE HOLY BIBUL SHIT! Poch Suzara

Filipinos Living and Working in foreign countries

Australia was founded 200 years ago by British convicts and heretics. Look at Australia today - one of the most progressive countries in the civilized world today. The Philippines was founded 400 years ago by Spanish friars all of them Catholics. Look at the Philippines today - the poorest spiritually, backward morally, and socially insane - country in all of Asia today. The ticklish part about this historical tidbit is the painful fact that tens of thousands of Filipinos have already migrated to Australia. They are enjoying in Australia a higher standard of living and indeed - thinking. And yet, these Filipinos are still in the habit of praying to God to "give us this day our daily bread, and to "lead us not into temptation." Also praying daily to Mary, Mother of God, to pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, amen." Thus, millions of Filipinos in the Philippines have absolutely nothing to learn from Filipinos living and working in Australia blessed with the power of human knowledge on how to achieve growth as a people, and maturity as a nation. I said it before, I say it again: if only Filipinos, living and working today in some 198 countries around the world would only learn the ways and means from such countries. Especially in matters of good government, culture, employment, work ethics, discipline, art of learning, system of education, health as a people, and wealth as nation, etc, and pass on such knowledge back home - the Philippines could sooner catch up in the race for human civilization, instead of just being still historically stuck in the rat-race for eternal salvation. In the meantime, for the glory of God up there, we Filipnos are active with FREE WILL than we are creative and productive with GOOD WILL for our country down here. Our productive factories are more into producing not goods, but babies. Indeed, we freely produce three babies every minute or 1.5 million babies yearly for the glory of God in our land. It also explains why poverty, not prosperity, generates the ways and means of our sick society endlessly inspired by both divinity and deviltry otherwise more known as the great success of Christianity in our God-forsaken country.

The Bible written by Inspired Fishermen of God

"The most serious doubt that has been thrown on the authenticity of the biblical miracles is the fact that most of the witnesses in regard to them were fishermen.

"In the Philippines, however, biblical miracles are all accepted as historically factual. Especially by college-educated Filipinos as products of Catholic education in La Salle, Ateneo, San Beda, Letran, UST, Assumption college, St. Scholastica, AIM, Miriam college, etc, etc; in fact, more than 1,000 of such schools, colleges, and universities own and operated by the Catholic church in this only Catholic country in Asia.

The Jews are not Christians nor Catholics

Hey, Poch

Hey, Poch, it doesn't take much to reach someone who is in tune with you. The object of your benevolence can quickly understand the whole music you intend to sing at the very first note you strike, and he finishes the entire song in his head in cadence with your beat. Surprised? Yes, you would be. It was easy for the object to follow you. Why? Because, the song, unknown to your object's consciousness had been with his subconscious, already partially composed at the time you came to him. It most likely came to him like it did to you, because of similar exposure and experience, that is, you were both exposed to a similar environment - subjected to similar conditions in life and profession – culture, religion, schooling, needs, wants and aspirations. By responding in the most admirable responsible manner to my written note of concern, you did a great justice to yourself, and I bet you know it. Your message of understanding made you a lot bigger than I last read you. You quickly redeemed whatever you may have lost which was not much really, not as great as what a closed-minded Christian have already lost in his life. For sure, yes. [Huwag po sana magalit ang mga hindi closed-minded] You are right of course in saying how puny any damage you may have caused the forum compared to the damage wrought by the Catholic Church in its unchecked wayward hundred of years of keeping its flock "innocent" of the true ways of the faith, and making them "ignorant" of their real potentials for greatness as a "believing" and loyal people to their God. I have to agree to a large extend of these damages and very much reminded of it every time I pass the wretched barong barongs of our poor, seeing before me the people - skinny, dirty, ill clothed and poorly sheltered in patched up houses. Their state of health unmistakably tells me how little food they are able to eat. You certainly have an excellent ability to describe in words what evils and horrors you knew the Church had unknowingly or purposely done to its flock and you felt compelled by your kind conscience, learned early from your Christian teachers and parents, to sympathize and it drove you with reckless abandon to expose them in the hope that the rightful changes might be done soon before everything is lost - by primarily attacking the clergy and the unknowing, docile and passive people, urging them to wake up and see the world as you have seen them, and for the love of their Jesus and the strength of their faith make amends and do right! There is absolutely nothing wrong there. You could not stop yourself as courageous Rizal himself could not stop when he made his expose' in two agitating "conscience" stirring books that caused vindictive annoying thoughts and great shame to the Spanish Friars and Authorities who were the evil perpetrators then, and the objects of Rizal's wounded heart and his vicious deadly weapons – his pens. But like the passive Filipinos in Rizal’s time, whose minds were held captive by the powerful Church, the same attitude of passivity met your honorable intentions. This is largely because they are ignorant of your song, don’t know how to read the strange but authentic notes of awakening, of liberty, of the truly free; and if a few do, they robotically continued along the notes of old familiar music that give them much ease, comfort, peace and no sore throat. The new, strange and unknown music scare our people of the faith. It is not a mystery why if we know how they were indoctrinated. The indoctrination helps very well in keeping the flock from wandering into new, strange and unknown territories. This is precisely why you and Rizal had experienced a lot of resistance in your quest to educate and persuade.

In Rizal’s case, he was smart enough to know from experience of the insurmountable quest in the time frame he envisioned a successful revolution. He knew the date of the proposed revolution wasn’t his reckoned time, so he turned down the invitations for him to join the revolution. I, too, could not wholeheartedly join your cause, no matter how much I am convinced that the Church has to change rabbit fast instead of turtle fast that we see it move in what we think is the new and more progressive directions. Slomo itong Church, dahil nga ayaw nila makamalay ang tao na sila ay nagkamali. Hindi maari masabi ng tao, “Aba, kalian lang ginawa, babaguhin kaagad?” Dahan dahan hanggang makalimot sa tagal at hindi na mainit ang ulo ng taong bayan. Alam ko ang malaking pagkukulang ng ating mamayan. Matagal din akong social activist. Even those who pride themselves to be learned, highly “educated” daw sila dahil nga may mga diploma, may masters at PhDs. Pero asaan naman nila naipasok ang mga ito – loyalty, love of country, patriotism, nationalism, subsidiarity, love for neighbors, community involvement, solidarity, etc,, na siyang dapat matutuhan at gawin ng responsibling taong bayan? How were the desire to build a great nation taught and inculcated? Ah, was it ever taught? You, my dear friend, Poch, by your dedication and will to help re-educate our Christian people, is not only in the right frame of mind, in the right track, but most of all, by your act you are showing everyone what a truly educated Filipino is all about. Forget the once in a while silakbo, it’s not an everyday happening. Besides,It is something that sticks for long until old age in many because we were wrongly educated to know, learn and apply it from the INFORMAL education of experience – exposing the young mind to people around them with this highly catching SILAKBO disease/syndrome. What more unwanted traits did we catch that stick like glue until our senior age? You do well my friend, even if you are misunderstood. When I say misunderstood it does not mean referring to you as a failure. It only means you have it in you to succeed once you explore different tact. It does not mean that you will always be a failure. The next time around should be more telling as a success story. It is a different ball game we are in now, at our age. It calls for accepting that the background has radically changed and understanding the need to go with the change. Often we find ourselves irritated when we realize that we need to find new ways to do our usual tasks and unable to find them. Hindi katulad ng dati. We are fortunate that we have freed our minds because we are quick to adapt. Pity those closed minds who have shut them to your fine music because they’ll find it much harder to adapt. They failed to understand that you are only trying your best to make it easy for them to adapt to the ever changing world, they who, at this time, know only to outright reject you. Frankly, I feel this new world of ours awaits another Christ to make a large dent of a change. I don’t mean the Christ who promised to return 2012 years ago. The new Christ must be able to sing a new song, one that no one has heard of yet but one that has been sought and waited for a long time now and have been etched well into our subconscious. When he comes, you and I may find it easy to understand and we will sing his song in chorus. But what of the others? The question speaks clearly of our love for our neighbors, eh, Poch? Take care, pal Ogie

Lies are far more Damaging than Vulgar Language

"If a man would follow, today, the teachings of the Old Testament, would be a criminal. If he would follow strictly the teachings of the New, he would be insane." - Robert Ingersoll Another word for "insane" is to feel blessed by God as we are THE SICK MAN OF ASIA - the frightened men and women - products of schools, colleges, and universities own and operated by the Catholic church in the Philippines. Such frightened men and women are more horrified by harmless "vulgar language" than they should be more terrified by harmful "vulgar beliefs and vulgar values" keeping us Filipinos intellectually poor and spiritually sick as a people and morally sick and economically bankrupt as a nation. Consider in this already 21st century. We Filipinos are still taught to believe that among the countries of Asia, the Philippines has been and still is the one and only country in Asia that's always been BLESSED WITH CHRISTIAN VALUES AND BELIEFS by God and his angels in heaven through the disciples of Christ our Lord down here on earth. Thanks for writing. I much appreciate your thoughts! May I however, say, with all due truthfulness, that the damage I have done in this forum by my foal and vulgar language is so puny, so petty as compared to the historical damage done to Filipino minds and hearts since the 16th century by the wealth, power, and glory of Christianity in the Philippines! Indeed, the truth hurts, but lies are far more damaging and can last for a thousand years. One thing I should get credit for in this forum - I never lied to any of you! Poch Suzara

God and His One and Only Son Jesus Christ

“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. ― Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

If I may add, in our schools, colleges, and universities, we were all educated to believe that such a God had also one begotten Son more known as Jesus Christ - our Savior. The Savior of the world. - Poch Suzara

Lee Kuan Yew - Leader and an Atheist

Lee Kwan Yew - the Prime Minister who changed Singapore from poverty to prosperity. He was not born-raised-educated as a Christian. In fact, he was an atheist and a radical non-believer of the faith. He was never inspired by the Word of God as written in the holy bible. Yet with sheer guts, intelligence, and discipline, he was able to transform Singapore from a hell of a place into an Asian paradise blessed with
higher standard of living and indeed, thinking.

How come our own Philippine government officials, who are all born-raised-educated as Catholics or as Christians, all inspired by God, are all good, unfortunately, only good for nothing? Specially when it comes to growth as a people and maturity as a nation?

In the meantime, the Singaporean youth, in their formative years, are all enjoying the benefits of scientific creativity in their schools, colleges, and universities. Indeed, they are learning to enhance the benefits of science and technology. In order to bring forth more creativity of prosperity into their social and economic reality in Asia.

Could the Philippines ever catch up stuck with its culture of corruption, the culture of praying and believing with Singapore? A city-State way ahead due to its culture of high standard of living as the result of hard learning, hard working, and hard thinking? Poch Suzara

We are all Made of Dust

Nobody is perfect; but however scientifically well-informed many of us have become, the creationists would still insists that we all came from dust and unto dust we shall all return. But really, if the Creator made man in his own image and likeness, it follows that the Creator too is made of dust. Now, isn’t it rather silly to pray to a Creator who is made of dust to save our silly souls that’s made of dust too? Poch Suzara

Aimless as a People and Rudderless as a Nation

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7 Philippine Star, April 3, 2012

Teach this bible message to millions upon millions of Filipinos in schools, colleges, and universities and it become easy to understand why we Filipinos are aimless as a people and why the Philippines is rudderless as a nation. Poch Suzara

There is No Christianity. Only Christianities

Ironically, the truth behind the REVEALED TRUTH has yet to be REVEALED. Otherwise, why are there hundreds of thousand sects of Christianity misunderstanding and fighting and hating each other over what is the true nature of the revealed truth? In the meantime, where is the Universal God who has yet to reveal, for the whole of mankind, one universal religion to hold and embrace and have faith in peacefully and harmoniously? It is glaringly obvious, if not alarmingly translucent that not all of the bible scholars were inspired by the same Holy Spirit; for, if they were, they would all belong as members of the same church today. Throughout the world, there are more than 100,000 different sects of Christianity each hating the other due to, if not because of, the failure to mutually understand bible messages. The great religions of the world, especially Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have enemies. No, not only the animosity of one against the other. The enemy is religion itself. This is due to faith in a local divinity for the sake of spreading religious stupidity globally. To think that after all of these past thousands of years with God here, and God there, and God everywhere - the world today is still in a spiritual mess, still in a moral mess, and still in a religious mess - due to fear here, ignorance there, and the Unrevealed Truth on the march everywhere. Take a good look at Christianity. There is no such religion existing known as Christianity, only CHRISTIANITIES. Indeed, overshadowing the minor protestant religions - Lutheran, Evangelical, Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist, Pentecostal, Mormon, Adventists, Unitarian, Episcopalian, Iglesia Ni Cristo, el Shaddai, Dating Daan, Jesus is Lord Movement, Tamang Daan, Iglesia de Pocholo, Iglesia de Rangus at si Flangus, etc. etc. is the major religion known as the Catholic religion. In Northern Ireland, the Catholics and the Protestants have not ceased hating and fighting each other since the 14th century. And to think that Jesus, the Son of God, the Savior of the world, was to have fixed the troubles of our world during his first coming. Now we are told he will soon return to complete and accomplish the mission with His Second Coming. - Poch Suzara Google# Facebook# Twitter# Atheists#

Jesus last Words on the Cross

"Jesus' last words on the cross, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" hardly seem like the words of a Savior who planned to save the world, specially save Filipinos in the Philippines - the Sick Man of Asia.

It doesn't take a poch Suzara to figure out there is something fishy here. Considering Jesus died in a foreign country 2,000 years ago, and then resurrected from death - proceeded to go to heaven and nobody, but nobody has seen or heard directly from Him even since. Poch Suzara
