Oh God, My Dear, Dear God

Sin may be hidden from others, but never from God. Philippine Star, June 1, 2013 Oh God, my dear God, how come you are never around? You are only always omni-absent; never omni-present! No one has seen you or has met with you. And yet, the most we can do is to offend you with sin? What kind of a sick joke is this? Your duty and responsibility as a God is to be a God to all of us? Is that hard to do? Really God, what kind of an all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, all-supernatural Sap are you? Poch Suzara

So God Exists, So What

Prove to me that God exist and I will prove to you that I will continue to be a devout, if not a faithful atheist. So God exists. So, so what? I am more inclined to believe that extra-terrestrial beings from other planets arrived on this earth thousands of years ago, and they came to introduce to our primitive human ancestors the power of knowledge. Otherwise, if such extra-terrestrial beings came down to earth as GODS to save our silly souls away from eternal damnation, I said it before, I say it again: to hell with that holy extra-terrestrial garbage! In the conflict between science and religion, I will always take the side of science even if, at times, science is wrong. I never take the side of religion because it is always wrong. After tens of thousands of years already ahead of science, religion has yet to make one simple discovery to benefit mankind as a revealed truth, and not as a truth yet to be revealed. Bertrand Russell summarized it neatly: "religion encourages stupidity and an insufficient sense of reality." As for us Filipinos - the Sick Man of Asia, listen to Teodoro A. Agoncillo, a rare and a courageous Filipino historian: "Self-deception is the worst tragedy of the Filipinos as a people." Poch Suzara

Human Intelligence Against Corruption

The surest way to corrupt children in school is to instruct them to hold in the highest respect and admiration those who believe alike; and to never mind than those who think differently. Human intelligence is a never-ending process in discovering the truth. The business of discovery can only be accomplished not by those who believe alike, but precisely by those who think differently. In the ultimate analysis, we are all born ignorant, not corrupt. We are all made corrupt by a corrupt system of education. It begins with WHAT to believe. Basic education should only be about learning HOW to think! Poch Suzara

Family Unity, Social and Political

It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents men from living freely and nobly. Bertrand Russell In the Philippines, it is preoccupation with faith in God's Will as a destiny, more than anything else, that prevents millions of Filipinos, specially those with college education, from living the good life - one that promotes family unity, social, religious and political sanity, - as inspired by love of common human decency in our country. Poch Suzara

Oh Dear, My Dear Dan Brown

May 25, 2013 Dan Brown, author, INFERNO Dear Dan Brown, Around 30 per cent or 26 million Filipinos still have no access to sanitary toilets in the Philippines, data from two United Nations agencies show. The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and World Health Organization said 7.4 million of these Filipinos still poo and pee behind bushes, fields, plastic bags, ditches, canals, rivers, lakes, bridges, or along highway tracks. Indeed, it is more fun in the Philippines. Specially for its 6.3 million Senior citizens existing on an average of P6,000 pesos or $150 dollars monthly SSS pension. It's a hand to mouth struggle to go on living in this world. Sir, I am one of those Senior Citizens of the Philippines. Dan, I greatly enjoyed reading the way you described Metro Manila as the "Gates of Hell" in your latest book - INFERNO. With all due respect, may I remind you that there is only one bully character for souls to deal with in hell - the weird devil. So it is not really that dreadful compared to the many corrupt bullies we all have to deal with in our poor and backward and God-forsaken county. Indeed, in the Philippines, millions of us poor Filipinos have no recourse but to live with many corrupt characters comprising our sick society - in the church, in the government, in the media; and indeed, weird teachers and professors in schools, colleges, and universities owned and operated by the Catholic church. They still teach Filipino children not HOW to think, but only WHAT to believe - a disease more known as the Sick Man of Asia! Sir, aside from reading INFERNO to learn about the ills of our sick society - we have only to read what is reported and published daily in the Philippine Star, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Manila Bulletin, and in other major newspapers in our country. We believe, however, that such horrors are not really horrors, because, for the most part, they are due to, if not because of our Free Will - God's greatest gift to Filipinos - the Sick Man of Asia. The Philippines is, indeed, a country famous for its poverty, suffocating pollution, political corruption, economic perversion, traffic jams, garbage here, filth there, horrifying sex trade, ill-health and shameless sanitation together with the jobless, the homeless, and the hopeless; not to mention the shantytowns that sprawl across trash dumps and cemeteries. millions of us poor Filipinos have also to accept the wealth, the power, and glory of the real owners of the Philippines - the Catholic church and its greedy partners in the world of trade and commerce. Sex trade in the Philippines is minor evil. What, however, is the major evil is the way we are inspired to produce 3 babies every minute the day and night; or, 4,320 babies daily; or 129,600 babies monthly; or 1.5 million babies yearly. Most of these children are neither loved nor wanted. They struggle to survive in the streets of our major cities. Their parents have been told to believe that God will provide for them anyway. If not in this life, in the next. Just pray and never lose faith. After all, God said in the bible that we must always multiply and replenish the earth. Also, "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." Matt. 6:34 We Filipinos are not only religious. We are also superstitious. We carry false beliefs daily on our backs and we are crippled by its weigh. Sadly, instead of facing reconstruction with science and technology, what we seek is only self-deception, if not obliteration via more prayers under more of the same theology. As one high official in our government wrote to you saying: "Our faith in God binds us as a nation and we believe that Manila citizens are more than capable of exemplifying good character and compassion towards each other...Truly, our place is an entry to heaven." Let's now take a closer look at how exactly we Filipinos are loving and compassionate towards each other in our own country: God-fearing security guards are needed to assist God-fearing policemen to guard the entrance of hospitals, banks, schools, colleges, universities, shopping malls, residential buildings, hotels, motels, bars, night clubs, bookstores, drug stores, residential villages, movie theaters, restaurants, churches, cathedrals, public parks, museums, airports, harbors, MRT-LRT stations, bus stations, halls of justice, courts of law, barangay's office, mayor's office, governor's office; not to mention the entrance of the NBI building also guarded, defended, and protected by licensed security guards. I have asked it before, I ask it again: how blessed are we really by God for being the only Catholic country in Asia since 400 years ago? Sir, do you know that in blind faith we Filipinos continue to be the victims of the Holy Bible messages. It teaches us Filipinos to "love not this world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of God is not in Him." 1 John 2:15 It is, in this way, that we Filipinos believe the only holy thing of lasting value are those found in the heavenly world of God up there. Our country down here should be treated as something temporary, unworthy, low, if not depraved. After all, we are told, this life is merely a stopover on our journey to the next better life. Therefore the less love, less attention, and less affection placed on our country; and, at the same time, more love, more attention, and more affection are placed on God's kingdom - the better for all of us; especially as we are the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century. In the meantime, the Catholic Vatican bank is far richer, far more powerful than the Federal bank of the USA. Dan Brown, my dear sir, for being honest and truthful about the horrors of freedom and democracy in the Philippines, I salute you. Power is the ability to produce intended effects. I wish you more power! With all good wishes, Poch Suzara Makati city, Philippines May 13, 2013

Religion, Lies, and deceptions in the Philippines

Religion encourages stupidity and an insufficient sense of reality. Bertrand Russell In the Philippines, however, religion promotes lies and deceptions, if not more of the same old historical degradation. Millions of Filipino children are still taught in school to believe in Jesus - the Savior of our sick souls for the sake of the wealth and power of Christianity in our poor and backward country. I said it before, I say it again: It is foolish to believe that the priesthood industry is only acting in their churches and cathedrals. Nay, they are acting more effectively in schools, colleges, and universities. It is what the Sick Man of Asia is mostly about.Poch Suzara

Only In the Philippines 2013

3 babies are born every minute of the day and night or 1.5 million babies born yearly. It means not the spread of health and sanitation; nor the growth and maturity of civilization. It simply means that millions of our women are more than willing to produce not nutritious goodies to benefit the Filipino community, but to produce only more babies to benefit the priesthood industry, pharmaceutical industry, education industry, and the industry of religious insanity down here for the greater glory of a sick divinity up there. In this already 21st century, formative years in school is still about WHAT to believe; not about HOW to think. Thus, poverty in our country, traditionally, continue to be poverty of the worst kind: poverty of the mind and heart. If you wish to learn more about how sick we are as the Sick Man of Asia - you can read it published daily in the Philippine Star, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Manila Bulletin, and in other major newspapers in our country. Readers are made to laugh, not think! A convicted felon in jail can legally vote during election; but what is even more legal is that a convicted felon out of jail is allowed to run for congress. In the recent election, all of the 12 candidates who made it to the senate are all maka-dios. All faithful to the Lord. They therefore thanked the Lord first and then thanked second the people who voted for them. After all, only the Lord and the people can forgive them of their upcoming sins and crimes. Free Will does not mean the will to study, read, learn, explore, investigate, question, experiment, examine, analyze, or the freedom to think. It only means that we are free to believe anything we want to believe. And it does not matter whether they are or true or not. We Filipinos have nothing great going on for us except a Jewish Savior - the Son of Jewish Lord, born in a foreign land more than 2,000 years ago. This is the same Lord who preached: "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." Parents love the Lord more than they love their children. And due to a sick system of education during formative years in school, children learn to love the Lord more than they love their parents. Indeed, self-destruction is the worst tragedy of the Filipino as a family. No doubt greed is insatiable. In the Philippines, however, among the corrupt politicians in the government, greed is not only insatiable, but also negotiable, transferable, pardonable, fashionable, and indeed, respectable. Unless managed by an efficient government, foreign investment in the Philippines will only amount to the same old recycled testament. Instead of growth as a people and maturity as a nation, there is only the same old history of poverty of the vast majority in our blessed by God country. If you were an atheist or a nonbeliever of the faith you are known to be a man devoid of intelligence. A man bereft of moral fiber. A loser, and a failure. An evil man who should be jailed or publicly ostracized. If, however, you were a devout believer of the faith, or a Born Again Christian, or a famous maka-dios personality - you are highly qualified to run for office in the government. Specially if you are good, even if good for nothing, The bible is, indeed, holy. It still teaches Filipinos to believe that the only holy thing of lasting value are those found in the heavenly world of God up there. Our country down here should be treated as something low, unworthy, and depraved. After all, this life is merely a stopover on our journey to the next life. Therefore the less love, less attention, and less affection placed on our country; and, at the same time, more love, more attention, and more affection are placed on God's kingdom - the better for all of us; especially as we are the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century. Millions of Filipinos are now living in foreign countries - we are there working as "employees." When those foreigners are living in our country, they are here as our "employers." It is the sick reflection of our sick system of education. God-fearing security guards are needed to assist our God-fearing policemen to guard the entrance of government buildings, hospitals, banks, schools, colleges, universities, shopping malls, residential buildings, hotels, motels, bars, night clubs, bookstores, drug stores, residential villages, movie theaters, restaurants, churches, cathedrals, public parks, museums, airports, harbors, MRT-LRT stations, bus stations, halls of justice, courts of law, barangay's office, mayor's office, governor's office, and the entrance of the NBI building also guarded by security guards. I ask: are we really that blessed by God being the only Catholic country in Asia since 400 years ago? Poch Suzara

God Seldom Does Great Things in a Hurry!

God seldom does great things in a hurry. Philippine Star, May 15, 2013 In the Philippines, however, after 400 years of faith in God as the only Catholic country in Asia, God has yet to reciprocate by doing something real - like spiritual health or intellectual wealth - for us Filipinos - the Sick Man of Asia.

I don't Enjoy Playimg Games with Rules

I do not enjoy playing games like chess or golf or playing games with women with rules to follow. I do not care to win in such silly games. I'd rather play with my creative thought and entertain the thought of provoking the thought of others. Happily, there is no logic in creative thinking. It makes its own rules. It explores rather than scores! In Creative thinking nobody is a loser; everybody is a winner! It is a thrill; never a threat! Poch Suzara

My Dear Senator Rene Saguisag

May 10, 2013 Oh dear, my dear Senator Rene Saguisag, If only our schools, colleges, and universities have more to do with the power of knowledge, the values of Filipino intelligence, and the endless pursuit of the truth and happiness and improvement in the here and for the now. Indeed, if only our system of education have been more about what it means to be intellectually rich in spirit rather than just be religiously poor in spirit - we Filipinos should already be ahead as a nation in all of Asia today. Unfortunately for us, we only continue to be famous as the "Sick Man of Asia." We have neither integrity and nor sagacity in our social, political, and cultural responsibility. We are only proud in having concocted for ourselves a Republic of mediocrity as inspired by the teachings of Christianity. Especially for the few rich to get richer, while the many poor get poorer! Jesus Christ in the holy bible neatly summarized it for all of us Filipinos in this only Catholic country in Asia: "I am a way, the life, and the truth." John 14:6 And to think that all of the corrupt officials in our government even before the Marcos dictatorial years - were all faithful and still are faithful followers of Jesus who declared: "If any man come to me and hate not his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—such a person cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:26 Of course, let us not forget Jaime Cardinal Sin - the Archbishop then of Manila - always present during the birthday celebration of the Marcos children at the palace. Blowing up party trumpets and passing out colorful balloons! Indeed, the same Jaime Cardinal Sin who, after the criminals in Washington rescued Marcos and his vast wealth out of the Philippines - immediately blessed Cory Aquino as the new President of the Philippines. With Cardinal Sin as her adviser, she started a series of reforms. That is, to organize more effective "prayer rallies" - to end the never-ending troubles historical in our country: those more fortunate in our sick society continue to exploit legally those who are less fortunate. I said it before, I say it again: We are all born ignorant; not corrupt. We are made corrupt by a system of education. La Salle, Ateneo, San Beda, UST, Assumption college, AIM and, indeed, University of the Philippines, etc. They are places where we Filipinos learn how to be indifferent to fellow-Filipinos; how not to stand up for ourselves as a free and independent people; how to ignore love of country in order to defend and protect nothing except the wealth, power, and glory of Christianity in the Philippines. Oh yes, corruption is endemic here, pandemic there, and is satanic everywhere in the Philippines. The only kind of freedom we Filipinos know how to enjoy is the freedom to enjoy corruption. Corruption is reflected daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly in the Filipino way of life! We even call it: free will. But who cares? After all, there is always Jesus up there ready and willing to forgive our thoughtless sins and mindless crimes at any time down here. We have only to repent. In the ultimate analysis, thanks to our corrupt system of education, life in general in our country can only be characterized as the corrupt competition to be the criminal or be the victim of the criminals. Again, such horrors are often referred to as the Sick Man of Asia gifted with a free will down here as inspired by a kind and loving God from up there. Cheers!

It Takes a Nation to Build a Nation

We are told that we need to vote in this election because it takes a nation to build a nation. On the contrary, it takes education to build a nation; especially the kind that have nothing to do with lies and deceptions; or anything to do with divine revelation in order to win eternal salvation via social degradation, economic prostitution, priestly intimidation, and political corruption. What we need is a nation with schools, colleges, and universities that produces year in and year out not frightened religious followers, but intellectually courageous leaders. All at home, first and foremost, with health and sanitation as the decent foundation of a decent nation. But then again, who cares? Schools, colleges, and universities in the Philippines are big commercial enterprises; hardly are they educational institutions. Poch Suzara

Why Oh Why We Remain Famous as the Sick Man of Asia

My dear Fellow-Filipinos, Our barangay captains, mayors, governors, congressmen, senators, and indeed, President and Vice-president of our Republic are, no doubt, the leaders of our country. Unfortunately, also leaders of the Sick Man of Asia. And to think that our Filipino leaders all share something wonderful in common together: they are all Maka-Dios not in the Republic, but in the Catholic of the Philippines. What evidences have I to make such a fantastic claim? I have tons of them. Please read daily our major newspapers, such as Philippine Daily Inquirer, Philippine Star, Manila Bulletin, etc. There, reported and published daily, are the evidences in this already 21st century - just how sick and aimless we are as a people; and, just how sick and rudderless we are as a nation. Especially for the glory of a non-Catholic Jewish Son of God Jesus in heaven as he is in the Philippines! Hijos de Tootie-Frootie y Patooties! Mga kababayan GISING NA TAYO! TAMA NA!

Our Short, Brief, Fleeting Life on this earth

Life on this earth offers a variety of choices; eternity, however, offers only two: a silly God in a silly hell or a silly devil in a silly heaven. For part, I'd rather make the most of my life on this earth - short, brief, and fleeting as life is on this earth. It is the only life we have. It is the only life we know. Life elsewhere after death is a childish, if not a ridiculous - situation. There is no such thing as life after death. After all, when we die, we die entirely, not partially. Nothing is more evident to him who is not delirious. The human body, after death, is but a mass of meat incapable of producing any movements the union of which constitutes life. We no longer see circulation, respiration, digestion,speech, or reflection. Nothing is more natural and more simple than to believe that the dead man lives no more. Nothing is more absurd than to believe that the dead man is still living. Indeed, immortality is the condition of a dead man who does not believe that he is already dead. In the meantime, on this earth, I would rather be an enlightened thinker than be a frightened believer. A thinker is an atheist who cares! If I must leave this world one day, I should, however, like to leave it a better place than how I found it. Not necessarily in the material, but in the humanitarian sense. Poch Suzara

The Greatest of Joys in Life

The greatest of all joys is not the joy of sexual satisfaction; but the joy of intellectual stimulation. For my part, now a senior atheist, I'd rather continue understanding something instead of more of the same fucking a piece of nothing! In the meantime, I say it again: in this life nothing can compare intellectually penetrating a woman's medulla oblongata than just penetrating sexually her vagina! Ah, life on this earth. Life, in the ultimately analysis, is a sexually transmitted disease with a mortality rate of 100 per cent! Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#
