The Nature of God's Existence Depends on the Believer

If a triangle have to believe in the existence of God, such a God will have to have 3 sides. If an octagon have to believe in the existence of God, such as a God would have to have 8 sides. If a circle have to believe in the existence of God, such a God would have to be circular. If a human being believe in the existence of God, such as a God would have to be selfish, greedy, silly, stupid, and insane... Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

God To Do Better in Another World

I am not able to see why I should expect an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-mighty, and infinite God do better in another world than he does in this world. Especially with millions of poor and homeless Filipinos in the Philippines - the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century... Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

So There Is a God, so what?

If someone, anyone were to prove to me - right this minute - that God, with all his grandiosity, luminosity, and pomposity, exists, it would not change me a bit. I would still value my self-respect as a man and cherish my sense of dignity as a human being. I will still be a happy and a proud atheist... After all, I have no need to believe in a lesser divinity. I am already proud and happy of the existence of a greater entity - my family, my country, and the whole of humanity. . .In the meantime, if God wants to have anything to do with me, He should deal directly with me and not via messenger boys such as via the sick authors of the sick bible. . .

Grade School Years in Catholic Schools in the Philippines

Grade school years in Catholic schools like in La Salle in the Philippines have more to do with learning how to pray than learning how to read courageously and how to write thoughtfully. . . It has more to do with stupid believing than children learning how to love more and deeper learning. Thus, for the most part, in schools, colleges, and universities there is no such thing as real system of education. There is only silly indoctrination. . . Millions upon millions of us Filipinos come out of schools, colleges, and universities not as well-informed, productive and creative citizens of our country, but only as faithful followers of a Catholic glory and moral authority. . .

The World seldom at Peace only always at War

"True peace is not the absence of war; it is the presence of God." Phil. Star, Sept 21, 2015 How deadly is the American military? It is difficult to measure how many enemy deaths American armed forces have inflicted... Americans and their allies typically cause 10 to 20 times more combat casualties than American forces suffer... Estimates of Iraqi soldiers killed in the Gulf War range from 1,500 to 100,000. The lowest figure would still be 10 times the number of Americans killed in the war... Approximately 850,000 Vietcong died in the Vietnam War, 18 times the 47,000 U.S. dead... More than 600,000 North Korean and 1 million Chinese fighters died in the Korean War, almost 50 times the 33,000 American dead... In World War II, 3,250,000 German and 1,507,000 Japanese soldiers, sailors, and pilots were killed, 16 times the 291,000 American servicemen who were killed. It is glaringly obvious, if not alarmingly stupid, that if God were only always omnipresent, never omniabsent - there would be more peace than wars in this world...

Atheists are Not Citizens of the USA - NO KIDDING?

The Difference Between an Intellectual and Spiritual

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has ts limits. --- Albert Einstein . . . The difference between being spiritual and being an intellectual is that the intellectual is always into fearless thinking and endless questioning; while the spiritual is only always into mindless believing, if not always into thoughtless praying!

Christianity - the Religion for the Poor and the Sick

"Christianity is the most ridiculous, the most absurd, and bloody religion that has ever infected the world." Voltaire... Christianity has kept and still keeps millions of Filipinos poor and sick as a people living in a 3rd World country still hoping, waiting, and praying for a Savior to save the Philippines... In the meantime, science has already given much of the rest of Asia light, truth, and freedom from fear and ignorance. While in the Philippines, however, in this already 21st century is still stuck with Christianity - the religion of fear and ignorance... Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

All of the gods are dead except the god of hate and war

"All gods are dead except the god of war." --- Eldridge Cleaver. . . Oh yes, the god of hate and war is still alive and kicking. Such is the god of the Industrial-military-university Complex of the USA... But let us not ignore the god of the Filipinos since the 16th century. Such a sick god is still here with us in this already 21st century seeing to it that we Filipinos remain poor and sick as a people; and, to remain poor and backward as a nation.--- Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

Burning Books is a Great Crime

Burning books is a great crime. Not reading books is a greater crime. The greatest of crime, however, happens is our schools, colleges, and universities - they are places where millions of us Filipinos are taught to be not intelligent as readers of intelligent books down here; but to learn only how to be sick with our sick prayers to Almighty gooks up out there.

Silence - The greatest of Crimes

Never be afraid to raise your voice against dishonesty, lies, and deception, and corruption; especially against silent crimes inside the sick system of education.

Science and Christianity

Science has done more for the development of western civilization in one hundred years than Christianity did in eighteen hundred years... John Burroughs... Christianity, since the 16th century, has done more to keeping the Filipinos poor and sick as a people; and, to keeping the Philippines backward and corrupt as a nation. How? By keeping science, especially the scientific way of thinking historically out of schools, colleges, and universities in the Philippines... In the meantime, let's take a closer look at our so-called "civilization.". . . There are of men and women today enrolled in the college of medicine to study how to become doctors to cure diseases, among them, to find the cure for cancer that continue to kill people all over the world day in and day out since centuries ago. However, there is not one college of medicine established anywhere in the world for men and women to learn how to cure a disease more deadly than cancer. The disease that's killing more people than cancer. It is known as "religion.". . . The disease has not stopped killing people specially in God's name... Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

RELIGION AS A DISEASE IS MORE DEADLY THAN ILLEGAL DRUGS

We all live in a sick and frightened world. Even the most highly educated of men and and women in the field of medicine - doctors and scientists - have been educated to be sick and frightened... They are sick and afraid to face and to deal in finding the cure for the deadliest of all diseases,- religion. It has killed far more people than illegal drufs . .

Religion still Infested with so much Hate, not Love

Thanks to religion, this world, our world, is still infested with so much hate, not love; especially for the glory of God in heaven... Indeed, in this world, the more you suffer, the more you are told that God loves you more. Therefore hate, poverty, and suffering are good for the human soul since such horrors are the path toward to eternal salvation... For my part, I am an atheist; and, an atheist is a humanist who cares about this world. Our world. And if you religious morons believe that of me as a man full of hate and lies, that's your sick problem; not mine... Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#

My Son Bertie's Memory Work at the Age of 5

As a father to my son, I thought it is my responsibility to play a role in the education of my son in school. Here are some of the poems, songs, and great quotations that Bertie memorized as we walked together daily to his Kumon Math Sacred Heart school in Lorenzo Village and walking back home after school for lunch:--- Why is it that everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die?--- Life is a sexually-transmitted disease with a mortality rate of 100 per cent.--- Why bother to be born again, when you can just grow up?--- "If you tell a child that God made the world," he will usually ask: "then who made God?" If we reply, as the catechism states, "no one made God. He always was! Then why couldn't we just say about the world in the first place?"--- "They came with the bible, and their religion, stole our land, crushed our spirit, and now tell us we should be thankful to the Lord for being saved." Pontiac--- One bright day in the middle of the night, Two dead boys got up to fight. Back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other. A deaf policeman heard the noise and came to kill the two dead boys. --- When we are born we cry, that we are come to this great stage of fools.---Shakespeare To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. - Shakespeare --- The trouble with the rat race, even if you win, you are still a rat.--- I would like the Filipinos to be brilliant, enlightened, intelligent, ad progressive. - Jose Rizal--- SMILE Smile though your heart is aching Smile even though it's breaking When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by If you smile through your fear and sorrow Smile and maybe tomorrow You'll see the sun come shining through for you Light up your face with gladness Hide every trace of sadness Although a tear may be ever so near That's the time you must keep on trying Smile, what's the use of crying? You'll find that life is still worthwhile If you just smile That's the time you must keep on trying Smile, what's the use of crying? You'll find that life is still worthwhile If you just smile. (written by Charlie Chaplin)--- "What A Difference A Day Makes" What a difference a day makes Twenty-four little hours Brought the sun and the flowers Where there used to be rain My yesterday was blue, dear Today I'm a part of you, dear My lonely nights are through, dear Since you said you were mine What a difference a day makes There's a rainbow before me Skies above can't be stormy Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss It's heaven when you find romance on your menu What a difference a day made And the difference is you What a difference a day makes There's a rainbow before me Skies above can't be stormy Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss It's heaven when you find romance on your menu What a difference a day made And the difference is you --- I'll BE SEEING YOU I'll be seeing you In all the old familiar places That this heart of mine embraces All day through In the small cafe, the park across the way The children's carousel The chestnut trees, the wishing well And I'll be seeing you In every lovely, summer's day And everything that's light and gay I'll always think of you that way I'll find you in the morning sun And when the night is new I'll be looking at the moon But I'll be seeing you I will find you in the morning sun And when the night is new I'll be looking at the moon But I'll be seeing you.--- Bertrand Russell Introductory Remarks of his Autobiography Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither, in a wayward course, over a deep ocean of anguish, reaching to the very verge of despair. I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy – ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed all the rest of life for a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, next, because it relieves loneliness – that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss. I have sought it, finally, because in the union of love I have seen, in a mystic miniature, the prefiguring vision of the heaven that saints and poets have imagined. This is what I sought, and though it might seem too good for human life, this is what – at last – I have found. With equal passion I have sought knowledge. I have wished to understand the hearts of men. I have wished to know why the stars shine. And I have tried to apprehend the Pythagorean power by which number holds sway above the flux. A little of this, but not much, I have achieved. Love and knowledge, so far as they were possible, led upward toward the heavens. But always pity brought me back to earth. Echoes of cries of pain reverberate in my heart. Children in famine, victims tortured by oppressors, helpless old people a hated burden to their sons, and the whole world of loneliness, poverty, and pain make a mockery of what human life should be. I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot, and I too suffer. This has been my life. I have found it worth living, and would gladly live it again if the chance were offered me.--- ON THE USES OF PHILOSOPHY "There is a pleasure in philosophy and a lure even in the mirages of metaphysics, which every student feels until the coarse necessities of physical existence drag him from the heights of thought into the mart of economic strife and gain. Most of us have known some golden days in the June of life when philosophy was in fact what Plato calls it, "that dear delight;" when the love of a modestly elusive truth seemed more glorious – incomparably -- than the lust for the ways of the flesh and the dross of the world. And there is always some wistful remnant in us of that early wooing of wisdom. "Life has meaning," we feel with Browning. "To find its meaning is my meat and drink." So much of our lives is meaningless, a self-canceling vacillation and futility. We strive with the chaos about and within, but we should believe all the while that there is something vital and significant in us, could we but decipher our own souls. We want to understand. "Life means for us constantly to transform into light and flame all that we are or meet with!" We are like Mitya in The Brothers Karamazov -- "one of those who don't want millions, but an answer to their questions." We want to seize the value and perspective of passing things and so to pull ourselves up out of the maelstrom of daily circumstance. We want to know that the little things are little, and the things big, before it is too late. We want to see things now as they will seem forever -- "in the light of eternity." We want to learn to laugh in the face of the inevitable, to smile even at the looming of death. We want to be whole, to coordinate our energies by harmonizing our desires, for coordinated energy is the last word in ethics and politics -- and perhaps in logic and metaphysics, too. "To be a philosopher," said Thoreau, "is not merely to have subtle thoughts, or even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live, according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust." We may be sure that if we can but find wisdom, all things else will be added unto us. "Seek ye first the good things of the mind," Bacon admonishes us, "and the rest will either be supplied, or its loss will not be felt." Truth will not make us rich, but it will make us free.--- The Greatest Men Have Not been "Serene."--- "No, the greatest men have not been “serene.” They have had, it is true, an ultimate courage, a power of creating beauty where nature has put only horror, which may, to a petty mind, appear like serenity. But their courage has had to surpass that of common men, because they have seen deeper into the indifference of nature and the cruelty of man. To cover up these things with comfortable lies is the business of cowards; the business of great men is to see them with inflexible clarity, and yet to think and feel nobly. And in the degree in which we can all be great, this is the business of each one of us." Bertrand Russell--- READ, READ, and READ What we need in this country is not MORE faith, but more reason for the sake of spiritual growth. It means abandoning outworn beliefs and the welcoming of new and fresh ideas. We need to develop a deeper vision, to be willing to forsake our obsolete and shallow vision. The road to spiritual growth lies in distrusting what we already believe by deliberately challenging the validity of what we have been traditionally taught to hold dear and holy. We must learn to question everything. It is the basis of spiritual growth and intellectual maturity.--- We must therefore develop the habit of reading avidly and judiciously. I therefore say: read, read, and read. To begin to discover not only the beauty of rationality, but also the harmony of veracity. As we develop the habit of reading, especially books on the scientific way of thinking, we will never, ever again, be the foolish victims of mediocrity, or worse still – be the promoters of a sick society. However the case may be, those of us who refuse to read are no better off than those who can’t read at all. Poch Suzara

I stand on the Shoulders of Giants

It is with much pride and happiness for me to declare the debt I owe men and women of genius. Such as Bertrand Russell, Will Durant, Robert G. Ingersoll, George H. Smith, Tom Paine, Carl Sagan, M.H. Mencken, Clarence Darrow, Alvin Toffler, Howard Zinn, Joseph McCabe, Jean Meslier, Jonathan Swift, Mark Twain, Jose Rizal, and Ruth Benedict, Madalyn Murray O"hair - the Founder of the American Atheist Association... If I am able to see higher, wider, longer, and deeper it is simply due to, if not the result of, the great writings of these great men and women of genius... In the meantime, I am ask: if I have been in charge of creation, what would I have created differently?... Well, firstly, after having created man and woman I would encourage them to enjoy not the freedom OF religion, but the freedom FROM religion... Secondly, I would make diseases not catching; instead, I would make health contagious... Thirdly, I would make not stupid BELIEVERS, but intelligent THINKERS as the main result of education in schools, colleges, and universities... Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#
