My position on 26, god(s) and reality - and my respect of those who don’t respect me

I have always been a skeptic, even as a young child. When someone would tell me something that just didn’t seem to reside within our everyday realm of reality - I wouldn’t even make snap judgments, I would simply ask them for proof. And even if that person couldn’t provide any evidence at the time for backing up their claims, then I just might have even research the subject myself. However, if I felt that what they were claiming didn’t have any relevance to me anyway, then I would simply dismiss the subject and move on.

But by the time that I was in my 20s, and I had heard so much utter tripe and deluded bullshit, that I had just reach a point in my life, where I just wasn’t even open, to even entertaining any of the extraordinary claims made by others, and of those who presented them to me, and without even one shard of proof. I had already heard most of the cons before, like the “pyramid schemes,” and most of the other kinds of outright fraud. And I often wondered just how anyone could be so gullible, as to fall for any of those old tricks again. I had heard the claims of those pushing the diet pills, and the pills that they claimed, would enlarge the size of a man’s penis – someone can believe as hard as they like, that if they take a pill, which is “only sold on TV,” that it will cause them to drop 60 pounds, and even believe that they will lose the pounds, while they simply sit on their big fat ass, and eat and watch TV, or that if they believe, that by simply taking a pill, that it will add inches to the size of their penis – just because they believe that it will happen, simply isn’t going to make it happen - that is simply ignorant and deluded. They have simply bought into a world of magic realism. One can buy into the world of magical thinking and believing if they choose, and follow on blind faith anything that they like – but don’t even ask me, for my respect of your silly and deluded childlike beliefs - - as my intellect simply prevents me from feeding your delusion.

When Christians and other religious people, start telling me that I should respect their beliefs, and that I should respect their beliefs, simply because that’s what they have chosen to believe; I ask myself, why should I respect a belief, which is based on nothing more than magical realism, (simply pretending that something is real, doesn’t make it real) why should I have any respect for anything of which there is absolutely no evidence, that can even begin to provide any essence of truth whatsoever – when in reality, what they’re really asking me for, is my accepting, and then submitting to their deluded and ignorant worldview – there is a big difference between having respect for a person, and having respect for what they just happen to believe in – and anyone who demands that I respect something that they believe, and simply because they believe it, then I simply can’t have any respect for that person either. And what this all really comes down to, is I’m not going to change my worldview, just so I can garner respect for the delusion of yours - when in reality, you have absolutely no respect for my worldview at all, and you even believe that mine is evil – so in the end, I will simply choose to keep my intellect, and you can take your faith, and then shove it where the sun doesn’t shine!


Life and the Universe – the never ending story?

When Christians start asking me, if I don’t believe in Jesus and heaven, then just what do I live for? I start thinking about the day in early May, when I told our 4 year old son, that we would be taking him and his brothers on a trip to Disney land in about a month in the second week in June – he had become so excited over this trip, that he could hardly even contain himself – he awoke the next morning, and asked me if we were going to Disney land today, and I told him not today, and it was not even June yet – then after almost a week of him asking me this same question every day, I finally told him that if he didn’t start being a good boy, and if he didn’t stop asking me this same question every day, that he just might not be going to Disney Land ever – from that day forward, he was on his best behavior, and he never asked me that question again either – he then simply started asking his mom, who then placed a calendar on the wall in his bedroom, and then she started marking off the days until our trip – I thought to myself, why in the hell, couldn’t I have simply thought of doing that myself? And no, I wasn’t being mean to our son.

I believe that it’s always nice; to have something happening to look forward to, but just as long as that something, is in fact real. When Christians ask me (what I perceive as a very hateful question) why if I don’t believe in Jesus and heaven, then just what do I look forward to doing after I die – I then often ask them, if they believe that they’re going to heaven, when they die, and if that’s all that they live for, then why in the hell, don’t they just pick up a gun, and then simply expedite their journey , and I tell them, that I don’t even believe, that Jesus would even mind at all, if they did. Most devout Christian, have about the same level of understanding reality, as most 4 year old children have – Christians await the day, when a loud trumpet will sound, and a supersized Jesus descends from the clouds, and with a big gold sword sticking out of his mouth – and they just can’t seem to understand, just how anyone without something like that to look forward to, could possibly live a happy life at all. Most of the atheists who I know, do in fact live extremely happy lives, simply living within the constructs of reality, and by making the best out of the only life that we know – but, what if this just wasn’t, the only life that we have to live – what if we did in fact discover, that we will all be back someday, and would this change the way we all look at life today?

So just what in the hell am I talking about? Years ago, my physics professor explained a mathematical theory of the cosmos to me, one which is based on a model of the universe that postulates, that the universe is only, in its true natural state, when it’s in the complete state of zero energy, and that the state of zero energy, is the only primacy for its existence – we are all currently, simply living in one of its infinite cyclic states, between our current state of energy, and the natural state of zero energy – and the universe is forever locked into these cycles. In short; the current state of our universe, is not the reason for why it exsist, and therefore, there is no first cause – the universe exists, simply because it does. What this says in effect, is that at a fixed point, sometime in the future, that all of the matter in the universe, will return to the natural state of zero energy, (where it is most happy) and then sometime after that, the opposite of the big bang will occur (all of the particles, of which comprised the former universe, will then coalesce and create the next singularity, and then, bang again – and the universe is off and running again – after which, all of the stars will form again, including our own sun and solar system, and our planet earth). Then, about a billion years after the earth has formed again, the same minor planet will collide with the earth again, and then form our moon again – and then in about 3 billion years after that, you’ll be back here reading this post again as well. And the real crazy things about this theory are, that even if this theory was in fact reality, and you knew it, you still wouldn’t be able to change one single thing in life from one cycle to the next – and even if we did discover that this theory was true, this same discovery would have had to happened in every other cycle also, including the next ones to come.

How would this change your view of life, and how would this effect religion – with all of its silly beliefs

Why is jesus missing:

As I was watching this video, I really started to understand, for the first time just why our children just love the secular Europe countries, where they have lived and went to school. In this video, a large racially diverse group of young children and young adults, simply came together and did something real cool. Then after they finish singing and some of them are being interviewed, of sorts – you find something missing – where is all of the christ-speak - and thanking “jesus,” and praising the “lord”?

These deluded Christian idiots and morons here in the states, can’t even play a football game without bringing all of their deluded Christian-bullshit to the game, and some even have to paint bible bullshit on their face – they thank their “lord” when they make a touchdown, or when they win the game, but where was they fucking “lord,” when the 1000s of poor children died while they played their fucking game?

I simply love this video – you see so much pride and joy on the faces of these children and young adults, and my hats off big-time to the Director!!!



My Christian friend is becoming rational – praise the “lord”

I recently called a longtime christian friend, to wish him and his wife a happy holiday. His 2 children are both about the same ages as ours, and they played and all grew up together. I’ve known this guy and his wife for almost 25 years; back when I first met this guy, and after him and his wife, had gotten over the shock, that they were living next door to a family of atheists, (we were the first atheists, that they had ever met) we all became good friends. He became the kind of friend that you talk shit with when you guys were alone with each other – the kind of friend that when he see’s you working around house, or fixing something, he always has to put in his two cents worth – he always has a better way of doing things; and the kind of friend that if you overheard us talking to each other in a hardware store, you might not think that we were friends at all.

In the summer, we would load up the children, camping gear and the ATV’s, and then convoy to the Ocean together – both of our families were very close, and we had a lot of fun together – but then came all of the invites to attend church with them, and all of the proselytizing. Both he and I were making a hell of a lot of money back then, and despite the fact that I was out of town a lot of the time, him and his wife believed that we were excellent parents, and had great children, and that the only other thing that we needed, was “jesus” in our lives. This guy and his wife were also real close friends with their preacher and his wife, at the church where they attended. There were times when his proselytizing would put a great strain on our friendship, and I would unload on his ass about his deluded belief in a ghost raped, little virgin-born bastard-savior, named “jesus” – I never attacked him personally, but to him, attacking his fucking “lord,” was the same as attacking him – his wife would always say: “he’ll come around to jesus.”

The last two times that I had talked to this guy, I didn’t even notice that he didn’t come at me with his christ-speak and deluded christian-talk – so I asked him: “you’re not trying to save my heathen soul anymore, you fucking asshole - so what gives here?” he then told me, that after their children had dropped by the house on their mom’s birthday, and both of them were proclaiming that they were now agnostics, and parroting a lot of the stuff that I used to say (I never talked to his children about their beliefs) he and his wife started thinking about what they believed in as well. He told me that neither he nor his wife, still believes in all of that made up bullshit in the bible, like the talking-snake, and the virgin-birth of jesus, and all of the other magic and bullshit about christ’s life and death – he said that today, he can’t understand just how he ever believed, that all of that bullshit was true; however, he said that both him and his wife, still consider themselves christians. He said that they now only follow, the christian teachings – like do unto others, help the poor and other stuff like that… he even apologized to me, for all of his past proselytizing.

I didn’t even know what to say at that point; I thought that I should have felt something, or even started gloating, and talking shit or something – but the only thing that I said was again, enjoy the holidays – he then invited me and my family to his home for a New Years Eve party.

I’ve never been religious – even as a young child, I found the story of christ simply ridiculous – the ghost raping the little girl, all of the fucking magic – walking on water, turning water into wine, raising the dead – a dead for 3 days, stinking and rotting corpse arose, and then walking among the living – and simply believe all of this silly and mindless bullshit, and you’ll live forever somewhere in the fucking sky. So I just can’t get a grasp on what this guy and his wife are going through. And can someone still be a “christian,” without believing all of the supernatural bullshit? Or is this just the path that some christians take to avoid the atheist stigma? What do you think about this?

"In god we trust" – and in ignorance they live:

I started following the story about the nativity scene, and the sign placed next to it by the Freedom From Religion Foundation in the Mississippi State Capitol that Vjack had posted about today over at Atheist Revolution. Then as I was following the links to the story, I started reading some of the comments left by readers at WLBT3 news in Jackson MS. There is absolutely, not anything in which those who carry the Christian mind-virus can say or do, that surprises me anymore; I believe that we all have heard most of their deluded nonsense many times before – but still, I just find the level of willful ignorance in Christians, just astounding.

“America was founded on "In God We Trust." We need to stand up for our beliefs and our God. We should not allow other states or people to contradict our beliefs or to tell us how we should believe. If they do not like what Mississippians believe or feel toward our God then they should go home. We did not ask them to come here in the first place. My God is awesome!!!!! Lets stop this destruction now and for all.”

Well, just for your information Mskathy, the state of Mississippi receives a lot of my tax dollars, and I don’t want one single penny of it spent in anyway for prompting your delusion – and by the way, you won’t find the word “god,” in any of the founding documents either, and the printing of “in god we trust” on our money, didn’t come about until the mid-1950s.

I wonder is there a sign in thier captial building declaring that there is a GOD. It is time for us to put our principles to work. Do let other speak for you. Silence has gotten us nowhere.”

“Silence has gotten us nowhere.”

Since when have these deluded morons ever been silent about anything which concerns their delusion?

“Technically, the "holiday season" starts with Thanksgiving and lasts until New Year's and encompasses all the celebrations in between. That includes Kwanzaa and Chanukah and any other holiday that may fall in that time period.

The truth is that Christmas is just about as an American holiday as you can think of. The vast majority of us do celebrate it, whether in a religious or non-religious manner. The Nativity is part of the religious side of Christmas. Yes, the Winter Solstice was the original celebration for this time of year. However, for all you Atheists, that is/was a RELIGIOUS celebration.

As for the group calling themselves "Freedom from Religion Foundation," maybe they need to reread the First Amendment to the Constitution. It says freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion.

You don't believe in God, fine, that is your right, but do not think for one minute that Atheism is not a religion. It's just a religion without any entity to worship.”

By the way, what are you people afraid of? Do you think that you or your children will be automatically converted to "our way of thinking" if you set eyes on a religious symbol? Are you THAT unsure of your beliefs, or lack thereof?”

Man, realAmerican makes my head hurt – no, realAmerican makes my asshole hurt! The level of willful ignorance, stupidity and delusion is just astounding in these morons. I am really starting to believe that these deluded Christian-morons, must believe that they have some “god” and state given right, to torment all of us nonbelievers with their Christian bullshit – where in the Constitution does it say, that as an atheist, I have no freedom from religion, or is this deluded moron just saying that I only have the freedom of choosing a religion?

One having no belief in god(s) is about as much of a religion, as not being a stamp collector makes someone religious. And I just don’t understand their believing that we fear something about Christianity; and there is absolutely nothing within Christianity, that’s going to change my mind or the minds of my children about the reality of this deluded mind-virus – I have no fear whatsoever of this deluded Christian myth, I only have concerns because of how this mind-rotting virus of delusion, and willful ignorance and stupidity, causes those silly people to act.

These people can believe all of their silly and delude nonsense, until the cows come home, but it still won’t make any of it true – and yes, I do have the right to live my life within reality, and they have the right to be just as uneducated, and ignorant of reality as they choose – just don’t make me support your ignorance and stupidity, with my tax dollars!

Sister Cadillac Kimberly tells it like it is about Eddie Long:

Sister Kimberly is a living testament that not all black folks are simply ignorant and mindless, fearful “Christian” sheep, who will believe almost any silly thing that they are told, and just as long as “Christ” is included, somewhere in the mix – and despite all of her Christ-speak, personally, I believe that she’s about as much of a Christian, as my left testicle is – although, I recently discovered that my right testicle was a practicing Muslim in its teen years, and before it also found enlightenment – so you just can’t never be 100% sure about these kinds of things either.

Believers See “jesus” on Power Pole:

When I first saw this video, the first thing that popped into my mind, was those bat-shit crazy Bible-Belt Christians, had finally captured the Plant-Man from that silly sci-fi movie, and then crucified him on a power pole.      

Christian Frogs and Morality:

One morning two little tree frogs awoke on a tree branch over a pond, to the sounds of a Bigmouth-Bass jumping and splashing in the water. Gorge the frog, said to Alvin the other frog: “isn’t that the same Bigmouth fish, which devoured your mom, dad and most of your brothers and sisters?” Alvin replied: “I think so…yes, that’s him, and he’s the same greedy fish who has been eating all of our friends too!” Gorge then thought out loud: “I wish that big ugly frog eating fish, would just roll over and just fucking die.” Alvin quickly said to Gorge: “you should never say anything like that about another one of God’s creations – God might get mad at you, and never let you into heaven.” Gorge replied: “FUCK GOD; if that big ugly frog eating fish was dead, this pond would be like your heaven – and besides that fact; I don’t believe in your fucking God, anyway!” Alvin then said to Gorge: “I just don’t understand, how any frog could live without Jesus, and with all of the dangers that we face each day in our daily lives – why would anyone not accept Jesus; and besides, every frog in my family is a Christian, including me - Jesus is who keeps me alive; and I pray to him every day, and me and my family, have never missed one single Sunday Church service, in over 30,000 generations of our family - all you have to do is accept Jesus, and you’ll be saved, and then if something does happen to you, you’ll go to heaven.” Gorge replied: “can you prove any of this bullshit that you’re saying – the only things that we both know for sure are, most of your stupid Christian family, has been eaten by birds and fish, including that big ugly one down there.” Alvin then said: “maybe, but I just know that they’re all waiting for me in heaven, and when I get there, we’ll all be together again.”

As the Bigmouth Bass floated on top of the pond quietly listening to the two frogs arguing; up came hoping Alvin’s little brother, Matt. Matt said to Alvin and Gorge: “praise the Lord, and good morning guys, are there any tasty flies up there?” Gorge replied: “no Matt and we can’t get over there to our favorite Lilly-pads either - there’s a big ugly fish down there in the water that wants to eat us.” All at once, Alvin got this crazed look on his face and said: “so you want proof Gorge, watch this – hey Matt, have you said your prayers yet today?” Matt replied: “of course, I do every day before leaving home.” Alvin then said: “Matt, little brother, do you believe Jesus will protect you from that fish, if you hop over there to the Lilly-pads – there some mighty good tasting flies over there little brother.” Matt replied: “ye, yep, yes I do; in the name of Jesus, that big old ugly fish won’t mess with me.” Then he hop’s into the water and onto a Lilly-pad and starts eating flies. Then the Bigmouth Bass, still observing, first looks at Matt, (his big mouth drooling) then he looks at Gorge and shakes his head, and then he dives under the water, and as he jumps out of the pond, he knocks poor little Matt into the air, and then eats him whole in the same jump.

Gorge then said to Alvin: “what the fuck, you stupid frog – what was your ignorant ass trying to do - see if the fish was hungry or not, you just got another one of your brothers killed -- Why don’t you really prove your Christian faith to me, and jump your silly ass into the water too!” Alvin then said to Gorge: “I’m not that stupid; I haven’t said my prayers yet today!”

Important!! Urgent!! Warning from Jesus!! Prophecy:

This poor deluded kid in this video has some real serious mental health issues – he believes that “jesus” is talking to him, and at 5 am in the morning even – “jesus” awoke this little twerp at 5 am in the morning, just so he could rant to him, about just how disappointed he is that people here on earth, just don’t seem to appreciate all of that pain that he suffered for them, and that they don’t love him enough either (like one of those late night calls that you get from a drunk friend). And that they believe in the big bang? And all of that science stuff is simply from Satan? And “jesus,” didn’t even seem to care that the poor little twerp, needed his rest because he would be getting ready for church soon.

When I was this kid’s age, at 5 am in the morning, I would be fast asleep, and dreaming about the girls that I wanted to do – and if some fucking cosmic ghost had woke me up at 5 am, and talking that kind of deluded bullshit to me, I would have given him a real piece of my mind – and if this would had happened more than once, I would have sought psychiatric help, and with the quickness as well – one can only hope that this kid gets the help that he needs.

Jesus will be “returning” on May 21 2011 – Run for the hills!!!!

I have struggled for years, while trying to understand just why Christians are so obsessed with this paranoid notion of the end times, and why they look forward to the total destruction of the earth and mankind as we know it, and with such joy and glee. I was only a young child the first time when I heard one of these deluded and psychotic Christian morons, preaching that jesus will return on a date that he was given in some kind of dream or prophetic vision, and he would only reveal the date of jesus’ return, to those who sold everything that they owned, then gave him the money, so that he could build an underground bunker, somewhere in the side of a mountain, where they would all be safe from the earthquakes and the 900 foot tidal waves which would precede jesus’ second coming – I don’t know just how many of the people he had convinced of this total bullshit that night, although he had been traveling all around the country, and he had been preaching this bullshit in rented halls and churches for at least a few months, and he had quite a large following by the time he had made it to Seattle.

Omaha billboards herald Jesus' return in May

From the Washington Post:

OMAHA, Neb. -- A Christian group is proclaiming Jesus' return in billboards going up in Omaha and other U.S. cities for the holiday season.

Allison Warden, of We Can Know, says an analysis of Scripture shows Jesus will come on May 21. She says the billboards showing three wise men following the star of Bethlehem are meant to spur the public's interest in the Bible, not frighten anyone.

Warden says the billboards have gone up in Omaha and Nashville, Tenn. She says they're also going up in Atlanta, Bridgeport, Conn.; Detroit; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Kansas City, Mo.; Little Rock, Ark.; Louisville, Ky.; and St. Louis. They'll be up for December.

We Can Know offers resources to learn about the coming of Jesus and the end of days through its website, wecanknow.com.

This latest of Christian ignorance and delusion, took me back to the time when a local preacher had told his ignorant flock, that jesus would be returning that year, and on July 2ed – most of the little christ-tards that I knew back then, who were around my same age, (about 13 years of age, or so) were asking me if I was going to repent and accept jesus now that it was certain (per the word of this deluded-preacher) that jesus was coming back on the 2ed of July, and they told me if I didn’t repent and accept jesus, that I would burn in hell forever – I simply told them that the only thing that I would be burning that week in July would be fireworks – they all got mad as hell. They even said things like: “I hope the devil burns you real-good, and that you suffer more pain in hell, than the pain of all the other heathens combined.” – don’t you just love Christians?
