Keep em separated


I just learned something new. Did you know that Ashkenazim, while at once being used to refer to most of the remaining world Jewish population, is also a variation on the Hebrew word for 'one of Noah’s grandsons'.(from modern Hebrew, from Ashkenaz, son of Japheth, one of the sons of Noah (Gen. 10:3).)  Like the word Semite refers to descendants of Shem, S(h)emite- from Shem 'one of Noah's sons'.
  I wonder, once we have established that the bible is basically bullshit, where does that leave these groups of people that have based their entire history, the very source of their ancestry, on the belief that the book was, and is, an actual valid historical account?  Do you think it might spell the beginning of the end for words like racism..nationalism ..war etc.?

  It was the same with the emperor of Japan, who was believed to be a god in the form of man. Those "beliefs" combined with Zen Buddhism, had all the ingredients for an extremely brutal death cult, where beheadings were common place. But as soon as the mystique surrounding the emperor fell, the entire system of control fell apart. With long-lasting negative side effects to the overall Japanese population, naturally.

  It seems to me, that it (war, racism, patriotism, nationalism RELIGION etc) is all based on silly beliefs about omnipotent beings and divine commandants. It has influenced and inspired division, wars, and torture,  TO THIS VERY DAY ,all to enforce the power an imaginary being can hold over nations. We don't need any of it anymore. It might have somehow gotten us to this so called "evolved" state where we kill much more efficiently, and often in the guise of the devout. But from what I can tell, it is a recipe for extinction..and we have been baking this dish for a while now.

Free will: a silly and arrogant illusion


  Free will most definitely does not exist. Anyone even sightly scientifically literate can understand this. What we perceive as free will, is actually the result of multiple sensory inputs being processed through the brain under a myriad of influential conditions such as,oh I don't know, blood pressure,oxygen saturation levels,estrogen or testosterone levels, diet, exercise, lung capacity, circulation, pituitary issues, etc etc etc... all of which can and do effect how one might make a decision.

  Any one of these inputs could have been different, and the entire perspective regarding the decision is changed. Like the butterfly effect. Whatever you think you are in charge of in your own mnd is a result of those previously mentioned inputs and the subsequent chemical changes that occur in the brain in the form of  neurotransmitter compounds such as dopamine, tyramine or endorphin.

 There are  hormones that are produced at the moment of orgasm, like oxytocin, that most definitely effect the direction of ones choices or decisions. An imbalance  of  the thyroid hormone  thyroxine can cause one to be either terribly tired and drained, even depressed, or, overly optimistic, impulsive, and aggressive, all of which can and will directly or indirectly influence any decision believed to be made of "free will".

  Free will is silly illusion. A decision is at the mercy of the  neurotransmitters, whether a person feels hungry or full, desirous or satiated, happy or sad, whether they are using logic (pre-frontal cortex) or they are using emotion (amygdala). No one is in charge of their internal workings or their external environment, both of which influence any decision a person can make, thus the idea of  free will...is just a silly illusion.

Jesus was/is a CUNT


  Jesus is a fiction. I think that has been clearly established, at least in this forum. But let's talk about the myth. Jesus was a cunt. He was not a good guy. He was a pretentious sociopath. The Jim Jones of his day.

He accepted Old Testament laws.

    Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Matthew 5:17

He told his followers to hate their families.
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children,and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:26

He came to break apart families.
I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. Matthew 10:35-36
The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. Luke 12:51-53

He insisted that his followers love him more than anyone else (including their families).
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Matthew 10:37

He encouraged people to abandon their home and family for his name's sake.
And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. Matthew 19:29, Mark 10:29-30, Luke 18:29-30

He was rude to his own family.
  Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! Matthew 12: 47-49, Mark 3:31-34, Luke 8:20-21

 He was dismissive of other people's feelings toward their families.
 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. Matthew 8:21-22, Luke 9:59-62

  He discouraged marriage.
  They which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage. Luke 20:35

  He was a hypocrite. He told his followers not to call anyone a fool.
  Whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Matthew 5:22
Yet he often called his critics and disciples fools.
Ye fools and blind. Matthew 23:17, 19
Ye fools. Luke 11:40
O fools, and slow of heart to believe. Luke 24:25

  He approved of God's killings in the Bible.
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words ... It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Matthew 10:14-15
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24:37
As it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man ... the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot ... the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all ... Remember Lot's wife. Luke 17:26-32
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: John 3:14

He believed in the Old Testament's stories.

    But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24:37, Luke 17:27

    But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. ... Remember Lot's wife. Luke 17:29-32

    For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40

 I could go on...but clearly..this mythological character was a cunt like his so-called father/self. He did not do away with the immorality and violence in the OT..he just dressed it up so douchebag followers could cherry pick the fluffy shit from what he said and "LALALALALALA" ignore the rest. So I should never hear anyone here say,  "Oh if Christians would just follow Jesus example!", because they ARE following the douchenozzles example, they are all hypocritical CUNTS!! Plain and fucking simple!

If you must call it a drug, it is the only perfect one.



  So many people these days  still  seem, surprisingly, a bit under-educated regarding marijuana. I think they might lack a considerable amount of empirical evidence. A joint is no more "bad" for you than a fucking cup of coffee is. And there are a long list of actual health benefits from it. There is not one thing that you can say a cigarette does good for anyone.

 As for pot being a drug, so is alcohol, and people don't get over confident and  then get behind the wheels of cars with impaired skills and kill people from smoking weed alone. If anything, they become hyper vigilant to the point of driving too slow. You cannot overdose on pot. But just like it is with anything from peanuts, certain alcohol sources, pot, bees, penicillin, etc etc.,  there will always be a certain small percentage of the population it effects adversely. That does not make pot a "drug" "ooooh! scary drug!"

 Pot ... if you want to call it a drug, is an entirely different class of drug than heroin, hydrocodone etc (opiates) , which has a harmful and unavoidable way of making you addicted to it. There are many classes of drugs that effect people in this way, while in truth being harmful destructive and often deadly, like (benzodiazapines, stimulants like cocaine..amphetamines etc etc). Pot is not one of them. Not at all. Pot is even less harmful than caffeine (another stimulant) is to the body. Especially when you weigh all the pro's and cons of each.

 You also can say anything is harmful to the body if misused. And yet, that is, again, not really ever an issue with pot. You cannot overdose on pot. You cannot get "strung out" on pot. You don't have physical withdrawals from smoking pot, even after smoking for long periods of time. And as in the case of many prescription "drugs", there is no need to get your liver tested from smoking pot. It doesn't damage the liver or kidneys. If anything it is good for  them, because it is good for the overall mental and emotional well-being of a mature, responsible person. And it subsequently lowers stress levels which produce hormones like adrenalin, cortisol, or epinephrine, which are useful hormones in the right environment at the right time and only at that time.(like running from danger as a deer does when threatened. ) But ,as in the case with stress,when the body is perpetually flooded with these hormones, they are actually very caustic and costly to the body. Pot does not do this. It is, essentially, an effective treatment for stress. I would be willing to bet it prolongs life, because it, if used properly, effectively, and dependably relieves stress, and stress has been clearly demonstrated to shorten lives in varying ways.

Religion, Racism, Cop Hating and Other Forms Of Mob Mentality








  I suppose I am a little primitive and possibly even intellectually limited by the fact,but as I get older, I find I don't falter as easily anymore. Once I'v thought of something rationally, and have come to a place where I can sleep at night over the subject, I am not apt to change. Though I believe in approaching every situation from a logical rational position, I am often still unable to avoid emotional response, but it is usually because of stupidity, ignorance or an intellectually self absorbed, emotional foundation of thought.   


  See,the thing is, I try to look at everyone in the world as being human being first. Religions separate and change peoples identity...cop hating is much the same way. Its almost like an evolutionary mechanism, a manifestation of order out of chaos.Us against them dichotomy. See, with the internet, information now moves instantly. As soon as I post this, it is in the ether being read by multiple people at once. 

   So, if  my microcosm is one where the bad always stands out more than the good(the will to change or evolve), then I'm going to be naturally compelled to manifest that thought pattern onto the internet. And that's what people do,that when given a choice between logic (unemotional logical response/pre-frontal cortex action), they will choose the more irrational thought process of the two, i.e. hate, fear, anger, anxiety, indignation, but mostly., and at the core, fear.


   All cops are human beings. My position, again,is that there are over a million cops in this country, the majority of them in any given area, being human, could just as easily be decent human beings just trying to do a ridiculous job in the midst of generalized resistance..again, depending on the specific areas dynamics. Because it is almost generational behavior, in other words; behavior that is learned and passed on. Most of the time passed within families but certainly not limited to just families. But humans have a tendency to collectively focus on the negative, even if the negative is as tiny and the flu virus or a mouse or cockroach. Sometimes that turns self destructive at the herd level

I choose the former.  And that means I approach religion, racism, bigotry, homophobia, cop hating, and even conspiracy theory the same way. Logically avoiding and even working against over-generalized hate and fear. Whoever is promoting it is often mentally or intellectually stunted. 

  Consider the average cop hater, and compare that same person to some ignorant, racist, religious, paranoid fist shaker. You might find, if you're honest, even a dim picture of you. There are over a million cops here in the United States. Some of that number are bad. When taken against the greater number though, it's likely not even one percent. But we humans..we love that amygdala!  We manifest our emotional thoughts onto the internet and they become viral ...meaning they spread like a virus..infecting the human race from inside the mind. In a world where information moves at the speed of light...we MUST use logic, or our species..could very well be fucked.

I'll vote...probably when the cows come home



 This of course is merely my opinion, but that being said, politics is a sham...a puppet show put on by powerful corporations that spend millions of dollars to ensure they get exactly the results they want. They pay millions of dollars to psycho-analyists,ad executives, spin doctors and PR specialists to make sure that whoever or whatever one thinks they are 'voting' for  is merely a mirage. Where any of this previous activity may fail, they have lobbyists that spend millions to buy votes, opinions, and decisions, so that by the time a poltician gets to office, what he promised in order to get there has mutated into something entirely different.Or..to say that more accurately, by the time a statesman gets to office He is instead just a politician, a puppet.

   I will vote again, when I know with a much higher probability, that the person I am going to vote for is who they have claimed to be. I will vote again when I know that those persons I vote for have not been pandered to by lobbyists and corporations from any number of dark corners. I will vote when it becomes clear to me that my vote is counted. When the corruptness of the so-called electoral college which only consists of five hundred and thirty eight people, is done away with, I will vote.  When it becomes illegal to receive any moneys while in public office or even as a result of public office, other than civil service pay, and violations of these laws are prosecuted as treason, then I might see the point in voting. When the two party system is done away with and statesmen can run for office solely on the merit of their intent and their track record, then it might make sense. When  religion no longer plays a role in public office then I might participate. When it becomes illegal to campaign via television and juvenile slander adds...I would vote. I would vote because there would be no politicians left. No, there would instead, once again, be statesmen.

  Some would say voting is very important, but I say  it is not,( or maybe in is in a pure and un-corrupted  system) and certainly not for president. I mean..for the office of president there are only the five hundred and thirty eight people in the electoral college whose vote counts. Every other vote is completely meaningless. And when the people you are voting for are liars, and you have no way of knowing what they are going to do in office, its like being shown a tomato and sold a peanut. Lying in a campaign for public office should  be considered treasonous, and punished as such. And corporations should not have ANY contact whatsoever, in any form, with anyone running for or serving in public office. If they do, their board members should not merely be prosecuted, because anyone with half a brain knows that those positions would simply be immediately replaced by someone more greedy and ambitious. No, those board members should be tried for their crimes and those corporations should be completely dismantled, as an example to any other corporation that would even think of commiting treason against the United States of America.

  When these things happen I will vote. Until then I will continue to try to make changes in other ways. Through the power and influence of the proverbial pen. But I will never again vote in a puppet show. Though, as an aside, I will concede that perhaps slightly more would be accomplished if we penciled in Howdy Doody or Mickey Mouse in lieu of voting for politicians. More of a statement would be made. So maybe  I shall amend the title of this piece to : I'll vote, I'll vote for Howdy Doody, Spanky, and Mickey Mouse. At least less harm would come of that.

  This seems to be becoming more than just a hobby...so if you dig what I am putting down, want to help us grow and you have a mind to,  please share this on your page and in your groups. It is through your help that we can make this a reality,helping to progress the mutual goals of anti-theism, and to spread the messages of logic and rationality to more and more people. Our next project is to begin making,and selling T-shirts mugs and bumper stickers with wise and catchy atheist memes and quotations on them, and to use the proceeds from this  to start a secular homeless charity and halfway house, where the homeless and people returning home from prison can get the help they need to get back onto their feet without having to be force fed religion. We hope to tie this into a secular sobriety program such as SOS(Secular Organizations for Sobriety). We want to make a large footprint for a secular world, and all we need in order to proceed is enough to start the printing presses working. 

*As soon as we reach our initial goal we will be sending everyone who helped us get there a token of our appreciation, the first fruits of the press.  A T-shirt, coffee mug, or bumper sticker with  catchy atheist quotations printed on them. So please...lend us a  hand If you can or share this link and help us spread the word!
                             Thanks,

Just Don't Fucking Hit!


                             






  It's like this..a man should not hit a woman..for certain. And women say, "Well, because a man is stronger than a woman " or "A man doesn't know his own strength," And it is true. But people react when they get hit. What this means is, the body and the primal centers of the brain go  into effect, most often bypassing the conscience areas altogether. Maybe for only an instant, which is all it takes.

   It's like saying..a snake should not bite you if you kick it. Or a dog should not bite you if you step on it's tail. "Should" is out the fuckin door. Even the sweetest dog in the world is going to snap at a motherfucker if it's tail gets stepped on. Why must human beings be held to another standard? We are animals after all. So, not to say it as if it is always going to be the case, but a woman that doesn't want to get hit, should not hit.

   It is simple. If it is bad enough you feel like hitting. You should be  mature enough to get the fuck out of the relationship. If you are the childish brat that hits whenever it pleases, well... no one should be in a relationship with you to begin with. A relationship between two people should not be one where hitting is acceptable, and if it is, then all parties should expect it.

  This is just plain old common fucking sense. And yes, if a woman hits a man, maybe she should go to jail. Or maybe the man should be wise and get the fuck out of that situation quickly or whatever. But that is irrelevant to what I am saying.  It is a given that a man should not hit a woman sure, for obvious reasons. But a  woman should never hit a man , if not because it is just wrong, then definitely because it is stupid.

  This seems to be becoming more than just a hobby...so if you dig what I am putting down, want to help me grow and you have a mind to, please...go to the link below and donate a couple of bucks.
