A scathing  indictment of Christian morality.

I am often perplexed, and bewildered by how Christians can claim morality when they believe in hell. I can’t fathom sending anyone to a torturous place where they would be tormented for all of eternity. When a Christian says they believe in a hell and that those who don’t worship their God will be there, I find myself sickened.how can you ever claim to love anyone, if you believe that there is such a place and you are willing to let them go there?

It would be below my morality and beyond the scope of my reasoning to delight in such proclaimed heavenly pleasures that religion believes you will, while knowing even one of my loved ones, friends, or acquaintances was being tortured endlessly. I would rebel against an immoral eternal dictator who could mercilessly demand that such acts be done.

Many people cite free will as a premise for why they can use cognitive dissonance to say that the prescribed torture be allowed. As if any crime as simple as refusing to beg for mercy from a divine dictator should be punished for an unending period. This type of mid evil thinking is why Christians can not be considered moral. There is no morality in taking selfish pleasure while ignoring the suffering of millions of others, that is sadistic and sick.

I would literally try to overthrow God, himself, without a second thought. I would rather join the suffering in such a hell than be forced to exist with a genocidal, homocidal, maniac who bathes in the glory of torture. One that I s so petty and demanding that for all of endless time he can bask in the glory of being praised for devising such forms of punishment for creations that had no say in their eventual birth, life, and death. 

From birth you are deemed guilty, sick, and if you are a male dirty, and you must redeem yourself in the eyes of the omnipresent dictator. You are commanded to be made clean, to restore yourself from the fallen grace by the act of emerging from a vaginal canal, for the crime of first breath, and the evil of not knowing the dictator. You are burdened to appeal to this sufferable tyrant every day for salvation from your own humanity. In some religions you must beg five times a day, because he must constantly hear you appeals that you loathe your own humanity, and beg for an escape.

The mere thought of this sickens me. The idea that by being human you will never be good enough, and that at the termination of your days in this body you will either live in a proclaimed glorious place, of face endless cruelty at the hands of crazed maniacs messenger. That people would chose to ignore this so that they can delight in the presence of such a being is twisted, and sick, and perverse, and deplorable. To say you can allow this for eternity and never once have the conscious of mind to regret your own good fortune and look to the suffering, and demand an end to such atrocities, speaks volumes of the lack of humanity, feeling, and caring among Christians. 

In fact, I believe that to be religious is to lack a lot of morality, with few exceptions, very few. You must believe that a hell exists in any of the abrihamic religions, and that torture is a just punishment, and that you, and everyone you love are guilty of horrific crimes by birth, and guilty of thought crime. You are so dirty and vile that your very existence is a test of overcoming the filty nature of being human.  You must agree with your divine figure that it has all power to command anything be done to you and you must not only accept the punishment, but beg to overcome it, and then thank the vile torturer for alleviating the punishment that it put on you.

I find this a disgusting practice, worth of repulsion at best. It is indignant, and twisted. No one who is a good moral person could, for one second, agree with such demands. Nor should anyone. It would be far better to be obliterated than to praise such a monster, a corrupt, twisted, juvenile monster that makes such terrible demands. There is no morality in torture, there is no justification for such practices, and anyone who can justify them is as sadistic as their divine leader. Christians can not claim morality from the bible they can only claim to have biblical morality, which is a sick form of immoral behaviors.

Their God demands an eye for an eye, slavery, rape victims be sold to their rapist, commands them not to kill and then forces them to kill in his name,he orders them to beg on bended knee for their lives as slaves to a master. He demands that they mutilate their children, and stone their neighbors, and kill witches. If any of this sounds moral to you, then you are a sick individual.

So you’re a devil worshiping, baby eating, heathen, bacon loving Atheist. Now what?

Welcome to the world of the least trusted, sit down and I’ll pour you a glass of satan’s brew. Your life just took a turn for the amazingly horrifying, and you should be prepared to fight, or run like hell. Most of your battles will be mentally, so you should stock up on Tylenol and products like that. You should also read a lot of science, and religious texts. Once you are done, come back here pale and sweating, with wide horrified eyes at what people really believe happened on this planet for you to get here. You’ll need something for the upset stomach, and should probably contact a secular therapist.

Most Christians, Jews,  and Muslims  will swear that you worship the devil, even after you tell them, like a thousand times, that you don’t believe he exists. They think that’s just him manipulating you with a Spock like mind meld. Even when you explain that you have read the evidence, found the contradictions in their holy texts and found glaring moral flaws with their religious characters they will still say it’s true. If you find yourself stuck in this loop, please go outside and start and argument with a tree, it’s likely to have a better outcome.

Next, you’ll want to know that you now have no morals. Congratulations, apparently without someone watching your every move, and crushing you with their divine hand, you won’t know how to be a good person, even if atheists have committed the least amounts of tragedies on the planet, it doesn’t matter. Basically religious morality is determined by which ever version of the book the person follows and the eternal fear that one misstep from that book will have a raging and vengeful stalker reigning down horrors upon you. Sure, you could say you base your morality on humanism, or things like observations of outcomes, but it doesn’t matter, if you’re not willing to commit acts of genocide or homicide for your divine schizophrenic you’re not moral.

Have you eaten a baby? If not, you are going to need to stock up on BBQ sauce, and hang out at your local abortion clinic waiting for the fresh daily to come out, or at least that is what Christians believe. You might never get a nice chew on a fetus, but you will be accused of every horror on the planet, like somehow by being in the room with theist children you will try to de-convert them with knowledge. Which will make everyone you know uncomfortable being around their children. Even if some organized religion has numbers of pedophiles which is more disgusting than a good old de-conversion.

You are now undateble, so plan on loneliness being your best friend, or try really hard to find another atheist, and if you are married and they are a theist, you should probably prepare for a divorce, unless they are very sensible. People are so uncomfortable with atheists, especially outspoken and direct atheists. They are often intimidated by them, and let me just say their god will come before you , and that is scary. Not only do you not come first, but you come second to their imagination. If that doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.

Do you love bacon? If not, that’s fine, but to ward off the more religious people and to help save your sanity, you may want to stock up on cart loads of it. It seems to have a repellant effect on them, and it can’t be considered offensive enough to get social outrage.

Basically being an atheist means you are a social outcast, or pariah. Unless you hang out with your own, and then you are part of a group of social outcasts, but the good part is they are a crazy great bunch of flawed and normal people who will tell you that they can accept their own frail humanity and not look to a higher person to save them. Being an atheist doesn’t mean you have joined a cult, or religion, there is no bible and no rules. There is only the lack of belief in a god, and beyond that, you are on your own. Everyone is their own person. There is no rule book.

So welcome to being Atheist.

Why Bad People hurt good people so deeply!

I have spent literally years of my life wondering how it can be that some people get hurt over and over. I have scanned the data, read the science, and yet, I as a person fall for the trick over and over, but why? I have this horrible thing called optimism. Well, only part of it is horrible. Some parts of it have made me stronger than I could ever imagine. I just want to be of help to other people, so I am writing this, and also as a reminder for myself.

I give people chances, because I want love, but I am not a fool. I can usually pick out the ass in the room and walk away from them, but sometimes people are very good at hiding just how bad they are for you. How can you tell when they are?

  • Everything is your fault, or worse they accept blame like you are victimizing them.

We are all wrong sometimes, looking back at my life I have been wrong a lot, and often, and it has cost me many important things, but no one was teaching me, so it was simple to make bad decisions, they were the only ones I could.

  • They criticize you, first in small ways, and as time goes on it gets worse, until you feel like giving up.

Don’t give up, get out. If you have close friends, and I hope you do, they won’t try to hurt you with the truth, they will kindly guide you to it, or let you make your own mistake, because you are an adult. You don’t need parented, and anyone who acts like that is taking on a disturbing role. A mate should act like a mate, they should want to help you, care for you, and see you reach your goals with gladness. Your goals might be silly, or strange, or just insane, but hey some really insane people did some really great things, so who the hell is this person to discourage you from any of your goals.

  • You are easy replaced.

That’s not just a threat, it is an actuality. Now let me explain,there are two and maybe more spectrums to this. One is you were never valued, the other is that there are actually healthy people in the world who could replace this ass hat and not spend time abusing you. The abusive person, however will replace you in the blink of an eye, why, because there is always someone they can manipulate, just be glad it is not you and move on. This is actually the hard part and the reason you are going to need a dose of love from some good friends. By the time you realize what they have done, they have sucked your time and probably some life out of you.

  • Good people want to be helpful

Here is the saddest part, you probably don’t know the difference between a person in need and a greedy life sucking monster. The greedy life sucking monster just keeps needing, and the need hole is never filled. The person in need is different, because they will be glad when you help them, remember your help and in the future be kind enough to return the favor.

Let me share a story with you. In a recent relationship the need monster was all about themselves, they didn’t want me to travel, or have so many projects. My plans and goals had to come second to their plans and goals. I needed to focus more on them and their family and give up the things which mattered the most to them. , and most of all I was going to be a future burden to them if I wasn’t earning money so that they didn’t have to be responsible for my things.

Let a lesson here be, that if a person is trying their hardest to pretend they are moving the stars and earth to be with you, and that you are their everything, and that everything they do now and forever is for you, they are trying to fool you. They are dangerous, get away from them, and do it quickly before they vampire the life right out of you.

Why are atheists falling all over the revamped vapire pope?

It might be a new Millenium but there is nothing new about religion. Nothing, in fact if you look at the current, and hideous state of America, you will notice how nothing at all has changed about the minds, the doctrines, and the behavior of religious people. The book hasn’t changed, and neither has the dogmatic nature of religion, so why are even atheists falling for this rebranded pope of the poor.

He came in saying all the right things, and for some people they felt mighty good. He touched them in all the right places, unlike priests and altar boys. He told them he was for the poor, and men should listen to women, and it went down smooth. In fact, so smooth the Vatican was terrified, because really, no one but him was spelling those things out. If you read the catholic bible, all you will see is how men should be the boss of women, and how women should suffer for the crime of innocence.

But nothing he has said has made it into cardinal law, nothing he has claimed has changed a thing for women in oppressed areas of the world, and then comes his further talking. Homosexuals, are apparently, messing with gods plan, and hitting kids is okay, and ridicule of religion should expect a punch. For a peace loving man, he sure loves to make sure everyone still knows their place.

The worst part, is how atheists are eating it up. Atheists, the people who abstain from believing in anything without evidence, are buying the pope without evidence for change. Nothing has come out of it. Not one catholic republican has altered his world view because the pope said these feel good thing. Not one church has told men to listen to women, and not one bit of the laws that republicans are trying to pass to hurt and suppress women has been removed because pope feel good has spewed a few tingly words.

So suddenly you have a group of would be thinkers, running on emotion and warmed hearts towards the pope which was the intent of the church all along. After all, even atheists can go to heaven if they are good, says the feel good pope, who doesn’t care that you don’t believe in his god, because apparently his faith in his imaginary friends is stronger than your disbelief.

Sometimes I just wonder why we are atheists if religious people can just convince us , like they do each other, that their words mean anything at all. These are the same people who use the terms “god bless you” to belittle and insult people as well as lift them up. Atheists might want to be the people who consider their thinking rationale in this situation, because the feel good words should be for those who don’t think, and the actions should be for those who do.

It’s most disturbing because then religious people think their values are fine, and even right. Their form of morality is, at times,  horrific, and disturbing, and the idea of giving them fuel for the fire, frightens me. What we don’t need is more of the religious right in this country, and to support a pedophile organization which defends the oppression of women, the abuse of children, and while it preaches to give to the poor, continues to take and make millions in revenue. So while the pope can spew all the feel good words he wants, it wont make a difference to the reality so many people are facing. When it comes to atheists, we need to consider what those feel good words do to real human beings.

Islamaphobia, Mohammad and the criticism of Islam

The killings in France have reignited the hate for Islam, and the bombing of a German news paper didn’t help, but add fuel to the fire. Now, like gun legislation, people are picking sides, and out screaming each other, without even the thought of common sense coming from their mouths. So let me set you straight on a few things.

Phobia: the rational/or irrational fear of something.

Is it rational to fear Islam? It is rational to fear anything that calls for the death and stoning of people. It is rational to fear people with ideologies of hate, and that doesn’t mean just Islam. Though, you should take note, there exists not nuance for fear of Christianity, like Christianaphobia.

Does that mean you should hate Muslims? Only if you are content to throw a blanket over one people and hate them all based on the fact that some of them might take their religion seriously, in which case, might I suggest you do the same for all Abrahamic religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, and any other religion that is sexist, and bigoted, and calls for the lesser treatment of one people. You may not have many friends after that, but at least you will be consistent.

So what about all the panic, and retaliatory behavior by those in Europe and around the world? Well, the issue isn’t that all Muslims are bad, we know they aren’t. Some Muslims have gathered and stood up for the right of free speech. So it is not a matter of them all being bad people, it’s quite the opposite.

You can’t tell a muslim just by their color. You can’t determine religion just by looking at someone. There are cultural Jews who are atheists but maintain their culture, there are Christians in the middle east who look identical to the Muslims they live around. There are Hindu’s who look exactly like the Muslims they live around, and unless you are dressed entirely in religious garb, it’s not that easy to pick you out in a crowd of suits, and ties. So this notion that all Muslims are this or that needs to go. Muslims come from all over, they practice their religion in many countries, and there are different sects of Muslims.

The problem that Europe is facing, and it is serious, is that you don’t know. You don’t know who are the good Muslim people and the bad muslim people. The panic is that you have a culture used to dealing with issues in a secular manner. With debate, and ridicule, and the freedom of expression. Unfortunately, Islam doesn’t allow for such things. Many of the immigrants are brought up in countries where Islam is taught in such a manner that they believe insulting the prophet is a crime punishable by death, and though many of them would never practice it, they sympathise with those who do.

Whit the idea that you don’t know where the next attack is coming from. You can’t predict based on where a Muslim came from, what they look like and which part of Islamic religion they practice, and the same can be said for Christians. The problem though, is that we know there are factions of Muslims being trained to be terrorists, and to do as much damage to freedom and the right to express yourself.

The right to ridicule any and all religions based on the principles they express should not be inhibited, and one thing religion that is up to no good can’t stand is ridicule. So it is dangerous to ridicule not only Islam but, all religions that have captive control of the laws, and the governing body. The reason that Islam is so dangerous is that in the areas where some of the Muslims are coming from there is a disparity in education, and wealth, those raised in poverty are more likely to be taught to be less accepting of other ideas and criticisms of their particular ideology, just like Christians.

It is not racist in any form to criticize Islam, it is a religion, not a race, not a person, not a living body, just like criticizing Christianity is not racist, but people assume they know what muslims look like, and even the ones crying racist are making the assumption that they know what muslims look like, but you can’t tell an apostate, from a Muslim, or a Christian from the middle east. You have to make sweeping generalizations, like, all white people are racist, or all black people are criminals, and to do this, you have to have racist. .

To criticize Islam is not to criticize the people unless they are the particular ones promoting the hate, and teaching people to kill others, to prevent ridicule. Any religion that  demands harm to others should be ridiculed, especially when it commands the stoning of infidels, and apostates, commands women to be second class, and carries out those actions.

Moderate muslims don’t follow those parts of the religion, but they often sympathise with those who do, and believe that there should be death for apostacy, and homosexuality. If that deserves silent consent then so does every other religion that has come before it causing death and destruction, and we can go back to the dark ages of thinking, and witch burnings. Because secular society and ridicule are the only things that have prevented Christianity from modern horrors being acted out on those who don’t believe the same.

We have to ridicule Islam, as a religion, and its tenants, and we have to stop the teaching of Muslims who would live a secular and happy life to sympathize with those who would bomb news papers, and gun down cartoonists. It is time for religion to be a personal and private affair, not a state of law, crushing free thought, and expression of ones very convictions of morality which shine above that of religion and dogma.

Natural and autism. Two words used to confuse and manipulate

you might think natural was the best for you, but then some pretty terrible things are natural. You might have heard that before, but let me explain some things you might not know. Like the movement towards raw milk. People were claiming for years that raw milk was far better for you because it was more natural. Just like the claims to autism, things aren’t always as they seem.

The term natural just means that it if found in nature, derived from something that was grown in nature. But it can be a term that conceals some very nasty things. First of all, many things that are natural don’t have to undergo the testing that other things do. For example, every herbal remedy in a natural health store. None of them are actually tested for the claims they make. On every label is the statement “these claims have not been evaluated by the FDA” because if they were, we would see that they don’t meet up to the claims they make.

That is because they can’t, herbs don’t work that way. Differences in where they are grown, time of growth, amount of sun and water can effect the intensity, and composite of the herb. More than that is, the claims are exaggerated. They can literally claim almost anything because there are no regulations on testing.

things that are natural include some pretty horrible things. Brain parasites are natural, cancer is natural, so is autism. The places on the Internet that keep citing the debunked, and shamed scientist who lied for money about the link to autism and vaccines, are laughable for those of us who study science. Since his claims, over 720 scientific studies have shown that there is absolutely no link to autism and vaccines. The reality is that there is more Mercury in fish, and some vegetables that in those vaccines. There is more  formaldehyde in vegetables than there is in the vaccines to preserve them.

vaccines have saved an untold number of lives. If there was such a link to vaccines, the scientific community would be the first to,point it out. There would be changes in the way vaccines are given, and the chemicals used to stabilize them. But study after study has shown no link. There have been links to environment, genetics, proteins, and other parts of development, but not vaccines.  Autism is something that is hard to live with. But blaming something that is not the real problem, actually impedes the research which could find the real cause of autism, and scientists, doctors and parents of children with autism want the real answer. Scientists and doctors, are parents as well, and human after all.

Many people have chosen to believe the debunked paper put out by a former scientist who admitted he lied and had his scientific credentials stripped from him for lying, years after the damage was done. For many infants who are now dying of previously almost eradicated childhood illnesses, it is too late. But the problem is, it’s only getting worse. People believe that their children have superior immune systems based on the idea of a natural diet.

I too, was once fooled by the notion that fresh, and natural, was the best. Then I worked in a vet clinic, where I saw the unfortunate outcomes of organics, and naturals. Organic cattle are parasite ridden. They have bad bacterial infections, they are skinny, they look horrible, they suffer because they can’t be treated with antibiotics. They live a horrible life full of pain.

people are convinced, no matter how much we say it, that there must be some residue antibiotics in the cattle, in the animals. I can tell you that there is not. There is none on any good farmer. And most farmers are good farmers because that is how they make money to survive.The problem is that many people believe that there still antibiotics residing in many of the animals are taken to slaughter. None of this is true. And antibiotic that is specifically made for cattle and other animals typically will not have any affect on human beings. Those that do have a longer withdraw. And the milk is always withhold from any animal that is on antibiotic treatment. That way no human is exposed to any antibiotic which they don’t need to be exposed that’s keeping humans from being treated for something they don’t have, moreover from developing an immunity in bacteria against future treatment.

The problem in our country is that antibiotic’s are treated as villains while natural is treated as the good guy without regulation for the reality of the idea.natural can be far more dangerous for you than anything created in a laboratory which has to undergo rigorous testing. Antibiotic’s are not in the meet and the milk that we consume. The hysteria over autism and the suppose of connection to vaccinations has led to a degeneration in the health of American citizens and cause problems leading towards the future in dealing with childhood illnesses and the ability to cure them. We now face the issue of have to go to repair the damage done by the anti-vaccine crowd. Which will be a hard task considering that more and more children are becoming ill of diseases that were almost eradicated.

Moving forward we should learn to understand what science is trying to tell us when they say that there are no specific correlations between two things and that correlation is not always causation. It is hard for the Lehman to understand scientific terms scientific studies and the best of that should be left to scientists unfortunately we do have instances where people choose to be non-credible sources when it comes to information such as the scientist who had his credentials removed. Science always has a way of dealing with these things though, since research that is prior is used to build upon when scientists study how the outcome of the paper happens and they find over and over that nothing can result from the same diagnostic testing the research is then considered to be void of Merit and is thrown out. What’s enough significant testing was done to just plow the causation of autism by vaccination the scientific community questions the credentials and the authenticity of the report by this former scientist and what happened was he came forward to admit that he was lying because of pressure by the scientific community who understood That it was not possible that the paper was correct and that the research has shown what he claimed it had shown.

As of this date we have yet to find out what specifically causes autism. One of the things that we do you understand is that he doesn’t have just one specific cause. There are elements that seem to be in the environment as well as surrounding the individual which aid in the development of autism and though it cannot be understood at this time Science is working very hard to come up with an answer for something that is both scary and hard for parents and the children that are affected.
