Cults Anonymous


                                         





   Members of AA trade one addiction, for another equally powerful but much more subtle "church like" addiction. Where everyone moans about their problems and makes a big to do about  everything in their lives. Feeding their ego's drama,and coffee...LOT's of coffee. More often than not,more cigarette smoke fills the rooms than is found in busy bars. You are repeatedly extolled, in a monotone chant, to  "Keep coming back, it works if you work it!".  It, in this case, being the AA path. 

 Outside of the 30 minutes of reading in monotone, chanting cliche's and catch phrases as faithfully as a catholic does Hail Mary's and Our Father's, they talk about their miserable lives before AA. As if they were worthless until they could tell the most horrible story of their life followed by one about how they triumphed again by following it...the path. . So that everyone cheers and claps them on the back. Again, reinforcing that without AA they would be miserable or dead. They solemnly chant catchy mantra's in monotone,with an occasional placement of  higher power slipped in. Like How it works, The Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions, and the  Preamble

  Surrendering all their power and self will over to the institution of AA. They are told dramatically, that they are finished; that they most certainly will die, go to prisons, or mental hospitals, unless of course, they  follow  "path" laid out by the "Big" book. In the end though, the book is only a means of tearing you down and building you back up as a faithfully obedient drone of the "program."

   Bill Wilson, in my opinion, was nothing more than a dysfunctional megalomaniac, and a  cheap salesman, that manufactured a gimmick that would place him at the top. He could have ranked up their with the likes of Joseph Smith, Jim Jones, L Ron Hubbard or Mary Baker Eddy, had he less dysfunction and more ambition. He did leave a legacy of  anonymous programs. Programs of  manipulation that are gladly used by government agencies, in much the same way religions are used. To catch and control.


   One could say that the Anonymous program was invented in order to catch those that the church could not. either way, it is my experience that there are much more rational healthy ways to get and maintain control of ones life than just hoping from church cult to pseudo-church cult.

  If anyone thinks they have recovered from religion but are caught up in an anonymous cult. You can do what a lot of us do and simply take responsibility for your life and stop doing shit that doesn't work for you. or there are more rational organizations you might get more useful things from anyhow. I'v Listed one below.

Some Of Us Just Have Standards



  Rooted out another conspiracy theorist. People! If you believe in potentially dangerous conspiracy theories, like the anti-vaccination bullshit, Zeitgeist, or the anti-science  lunacy of  the anti-gmo crowd;  then you might as well leave now. Because I will find you out eventually. I can't help it.

   I will try to reason with you about the importance of scientific literacy. I will link you to many scientifically accurate pages that go into great detail, disputing the irrational scientifically illiterate claims that you are purporting to be true. If you will still not listen to reason. I will then most likely treat you as I do other religious people. As someone that no longer values logic and reason. The town lunatic. I have no use for you in my life. And I consider that I am doing you a favor by severing you from my environment.

  You will never be able to handle my attitude towards the things that you are claiming to believe. And, I am pretty damned sure I am doing those around me a favor by cutting you away. Just because you claim their is no god does not mean you are rational. It just means you are probably playing monkey see monkey do. And irrationality is dangerous!

   If you cannot approach everything in your life from a rational position. Then you are dangerous. You possess the sort of mob mentality, paranoia and delusion that potentially blows people up, joins lynch mobs and witch hunts or snipes people from clock towers. One could say, it's just a matter of time. I do not have the authority to force you into cognitive therapy. But I highly recommend it. You could say I don't have rules....I just have standards.

Regarding Robin


                                    








   Regarding Robin Williams, people!!... fuck this shit!! From where I'm sitting, if i get depressed enough or just tired of the merry go round ..and decide to off myself. I'm going to pay someone before I die to beat the shit out of anyone who tries to talk about it like it was wrong or mental. I'm an atheist. I do not fear eternal hell. I know that I am here for a time and that is it, and I have no fear of dying. So if I decide that im tired of the shit...and I proceed to off myself. Fuck you!!  It is my right to do just that.

  You know,  I have said before that  Homosexuality is common in the animal Kingdom and that homophobia is unique to human kind. Well guess what? Suicide is also common in the animal kingdom. I wonder if all of the bantering and bitching about people who commit seppuku is also as unique to the fucked up arrogant human species as homophobia?

   Now..PEOPLE...let us just remember the mans amazing career and dedication to lighting up the hearts of his fans and quit fucking talking about his depression and suicide. Depression is simple...we get unhappy...if it lasts for long enough...we get sick of being unhappy. Some of us are not equipped to get out of it. SO FUCKING WHAT!!

Religion Is a Con




                                     


 Conservative Black Mind from www.talkshoe.com

                             

   I think when it becomes illegal to preach to people unverifiable unprovable  myth, as if it were reality, then take money for it and not even have to pay taxes; when these blowhards are instead either locked up  in prison for charlatanism or confidence games, or otherwise in mental hospitals for some serious mental evaluations and behavior modification. Then I think we might begin to see a rise in the collective IQ of mankind. One can dream.


   Honestly, I think people can believe whatever they want to believe. But I also believe that if someone is calling it a belief, that it should be a belief based on evidence logic and high probabilities;  or they should be bound by law to leave others the fuck alone about it. Those people should be left alone in their delusions. It should not be something one is rewarded for. I liken a preacher or any other religious leader, such as Imams, Rabbi's etc.,  to someone offering  shots of the black plague and calling them vaccinations.


   A Religious myth taught to others as a reality seems to behave very much like a virus of the mind. One I think that could be every bit as dangerous as the plague. I imagine it would  affect mostly children. Passed from mouth to ear. Passed from previously infected adults to children. Usually from parent to child. It would attack the logic centers, shutting them down while it would stimulate the emotion centers and dopamine receptors of the brain to addictive levels. Effectively lowering the IQ.


   It's primary objective would manifest as an overwhelming need and consequent burning desire to pass itself off to others. It would produce  mutations of itself. Many different types of vectors. Some would only transmit from one person to another. And some would infect entire communities at a time. Communities which would then break away and start their own epidemics. Some of these would be...like most viruses, more virulent that the others.

   This virus would be horrible  and subtle at once. Taking 1000's of years to destroy an entire species ... from within.  Where it thinks. Till one day...they can no longer even figure out how to get food.  Could be us. But It can be treated, if not cured. If we make it illegal to spread irrational, immoral nonsense to people younger than 21. And teach religion in grade or even high school as a category of mythology. There might be hope for some future generations yet. Like I said, One can dream.

Anti-Zionism is NOT anti-Semitism







   The idea that anti-Zionists are anti-Semitic... well, that's just etymological ignorance in my opinion. The word "Semitic", first of all, came from the unprovable irrational psuedo-history in the bible and should  not even be a word, outside of fiction. But since we are speaking of it. And since they are going to use it as if it is valid. Let us first understand what Semitic really means:

Semite (n.)
1847, "a Jew, ARABASSYRIAN, or ARMENIAN " (an apparently isolated use from 1797 refers to the Semitic language group), back-formation from Semitic or else from French Sémite (1845), from Modern Latin Semita, from Late Latin Sem "SHEM," one of the three sons of Noah (Gen. x:21-30), regarded as the ancestor of the Semites (in old Bible-based anthropology), from Hebrew Shem. In modern sense said to have been first used by German historian August Schlözer in 1781.

Sem·ite
ˈsemīt/
noun
A member of any of the peoples who speak or spoke a Semitic language, including in particular the JEWS and ARABS.

From  Merriam Webster:
Sem·ite noun \ˈse-ˌmīt, especially British ˈsē-ˌmīt\
: a member of a group of people originally of southwestern Asia that includes Jews and Arabs

Full Definition of SEMITE

1
a :  a member of any of a number of peoples of ancient southwestern Asia including the Akkadians, Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Arabs
b :  a descendant of these peoples
2
:  a member of a modern people speaking a Semitic language.

From https://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Semitic.html :
Origin
The term Semite means a member of any of various ancient and modern Semitic-speaking peoples originating in southwestern Asia, including Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Arabs, and Ethiopian Semites. It was proposed at first to refer to the languages related to Hebrew byLudwig Schlözer, in Eichhorn's "Repertorium", vol. VIII (Leipzig, 1781), p. 161. Through Eichhorn the name then came into general usage (cf. his "Einleitung in das Alte Testament" (Leipzig, 1787), I, p. 45). In his "Gesch. der neuen Sprachenkunde", pt. I (Göttingen, 1807) it had already become a fixed technical term.[1]
The word "Semitic" is an adjective derived from Shem, one of the three sons of Noah in the Bible(Genesis 5.32, 6.10, 10.21), or more precisely from the Greek derivative of that name, namely Σημ(Sēm); the noun form referring to a person is Semite.

The term "anti-Semitic" (or "anti-Semite") overwhelmingly refers to Jews only. It was coined in 1879 by German journalist Wilhelm Marr in a pamphlet called, "The Victory of Germandom over Jewry". Using ideas of race and nationalism, Marr argued that Jews had become the first major power in the West. He accused them of being liberals, a people without roots who had Judaized Germans beyond salvation. In 1879 Marr founded the "League for Anti-Semitism".[2] In other words it was misappropriated in the most grotesque of fashions in the late 1800's to be used as a weapon by a German but was ironically further misappropriated by Zionists.

Also, The word "Zionist" is derived from the word "Zion" (Hebrew: ____, Tziyyon), being one of the names of Jerusalem, as mentioned in the Bible. It was coined by an Austrian Jewish publicist Nathan Birnbaum in his journal Self Emancipation in 1890...TWENTY YEARS after the word antisemitism was first misappropriated . Now I would like to add this aside for all of the Zionist haters(LMAO) I have jewish friends that oppose Zionism. I also know of many jewish rabbi's and other jewish people that strongly oppose Zionism. So if you comment..and you call me a jew hater, aside from the fact you clearly have no feckin clue about me and you are obviously desperately trying to deflect from the issue. I will not post that comment. Do not waste your time. Thank you..drive thu :-)


  So, with that understood, it just pisses me off when I hear Zionists cry about anti-Semitism for opposing them. And their bullshit political ideology that espouses the fictional stories of the bible as justification for apartheid against ARABS who actually share DNA with Jewish people. They no more have a right to do that than Micky Mouse does. That may seem an odd comparison, but both ideas are based on total bullshit fiction. And only one is resulting in a slow genocide and ostracization of millions of people.

  Like the Nazi's Jewish ghettos. They have created a Palestinian ghetto. They don't use ovens yet. They have not quite come to using the words concentration camp either. But one imagines they could easily  see them doing so, after listening to them speak about it as they most often do. As if killing  innocent women and children were practically a duty or even a tactical move.

To the Zionist הור that lets the nasty racist comment I deleted...
WHAT IS THE HELL DO YOU CALL THIS?? FAIR TREATMENT??

Or how about these kids on their way to school,where soldiers 50 yards away fired tear gas at them. Wow! That's real righteous behavior ...


The only thing that REEEAALLY makes me sickeningly angry is the way f#cking Zionists act like it is the Palestinians fault they are getting this treatment. Like every psychopath answers to their crime. Like every rapist answers to his victim.


 What sickens me most is that since they own most of the media, at least in the United States. They are manipulating the minds, thoughts, and opinions of the large majority of  people in this country. People are Zionist and have no real clue why they are. Or they are willfully ignorant of what is really happening to people over there. Lulled by the media into a perpetual stupor regarding everything but work and paying Caesar.


   A seemingly important symbol for the United States...is the eagle. Maybe ironically, it is also the symbol for the Roman Legion. Is it any wonder it is a Christian nation?

Cheating with Google?






  This topic came up in a conversation with my wife ..of which 70% was levity, and in all honesty 30% was  seriousness. I could very well be cheating with Google, hehehe. I love my wife, for
she completes me. But I have to be honest, even if i'm smirking the whole time. Google stimulates my mind. When the internet is down, and the questions keep presenting themselves, as they have come to do.  I can feel almost as if an appendage has been swiped from me . As if part of my mind has been abandoned in darkness.

  Of course the reason is simple enough. I can ask any question I want. And I can acquire an answer, through Google, to nearly every single one. I cannot do that with ANYONE else in my life. Who else can offer such possibility? I ask you!  And the uncertainty and ignorance that shares space with logic and reason on the internet only serves to sharpen the mind of the intellectually honest. It may be easier to accept some answers even though they are logically impossible. But if one is in search of knowledge and understanding, then easy answers are not even close...not even in the same solar system as "enough".

 So yes, the search is enticing...stimulating..and invigorating. But it's only a tool. I was alive before the internet. I read an incredible amount of books. Very extincting and inspiring books mind you.  But they were ultimately inadequate. Not forthcoming enough with pertinent information. Google is like a willing and open partner. Responsive to your every whim. And free with her gifts. So few people get to really know her. Enticed away instead, by meaningless frivolity and shallow promises. But those of us that do know her... are not easily removed.

 I used to be more politically correct and use a more general term like the"web"..or the "internet". But if I'm honest, and I am presently thus.....it's just Google. I get everywhere else, through Google. Why bother with anything else unless I'm just pretentious?

Irriational Fear

 



    Human beings appear to me to be the only species that suffer from irrational fear, or fear that's object is imagined and not real. All other animals in nature are capable of amazing feats of strength speed and agility when its necessary...and then to be totally calm and peaceful at all other times. When we have irrational fear and subsequent stress, our bodies are flooded with fight or flight stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. Hormones that when not used as in  flight and fight, become destructive to the body. So as to say that stress shortens ones life and lowers the quality of ones life when not handled as the body naturally would.


   When a deer is eating peacefully in the woods or wherever...it is completely aware of its surroundings and has a perpetually heightened state of awareness. The moment there is a change in it's surroundings it jumps to action..almost instantaneously reaching speeds we as humans could not imagine ever reaching. But this reaction has also been documented with humans. The ability to perform superhuman feats of strength in the spur of the moment as a result of fear. I am speaking of natural rational fear and not irrational boogeyman  type fear. 

  
 One day my grandfather and grandmother were walking in the desert of new mexico and my grandmother nearly stepped on a rattlesnake. My grandfather reached over with one hand and picked her up and moved her clear out of the way in a split second. If you think about it...this makes little sense. She had no bruising on her arm..and he had no damage to his muscle. It was almost as if nothing had happened. This I believe is all a result of the amazing qualities of stress hormones. But this brings me back to my original point. When these hormones are generated without any rational reason and often in excess, they actually damage the body. They damage the heart and blood vessels and the brain, just to name a few.


  Getting to the root cause of irrational fear I imagine is crucial. For myself ..it was ultimately the fear of mortality or an expiration date. When I removed that fear from the equation..as death is inevitable and fear beyond that is not based in reality in any way, it seemed that all my irrational fears began to fade away. I'm not saying I never have them, but that I am able to file them away almost immediately now. And I assume that when I have an actual valid and real reason to fear and react that I will be able to react with appropriate strength and agility, though..hehe..I'v yet to find occasion to  test this hypothesis .
