THINGS TO PONDER

BREAKING NEWS

After years of silence Eve has decided that it is finally time to set the record straight. She now claims that she had nothing to do with the fall of mankind and was in fact an innocent victim. It was Adam alone, she stated, who ate the entire Apple, after forcibly taking it out of her hands while she lay naked at his side.

I am all for equality, let there be no mistake, but with it comes the responsibility for accepting the consequences of our action. If I, as a straight man, wish not for the advances of the Gay community, a Gay bar would perhaps not be the best place for me to get a drink… because in so doing I am implying that that is why I am there.The same goes for a woman who does not wish for the advances of a man… his apartment is perhaps not the best place for her to enter alone… because in so doing she is implying that that is why she is there. If she were drugged and dragged there, she of course has reason to file charges… but if she enters the room on own free will, she should be held equally responsible for the outcome.

All of these people coming forward to express how some person, who has gained recognition or status, treated them badly many years ago, may take down some of the big names for now, but could have a negative effect in the long run… because if men start playing by the new rules, there will be fewer opportunities for underdogs, especially women, to get easy promotions or a pay raise, simply by entertaining the boss. Right or wrong, men are not going to just go away, or stop being competitive and overbearing, simply because the law, or some women, says they must. If women in the work place are potentially going to cause a problem, many executives may decide to just start excluding them. Like it or not, if a woman wants to wear the heavy weight boxing champions belt, she is going to have to get in the ring and fight for it by the same rules as any man… or admit that there are certain areas where men and women are not equal.

Although we all have knowledge of the Truth, most have chosen to wrap their nakedness in the fabric of fantasy, refusing to accept responsibility for the role they have played in creating our reality.

I realize that many people need to have some assurance of a Hereafter to get them through the struggles in this Life, which is why there are religions to fill that need. Be it a Heaven filled with Angelic Host or a Bedroom filled with Virgins, the promise of a better Afterlife, although comforting, is in my mind the reason for the sad state of our World today. Believing that we are all “sinners” with no hope for redemption, except for the few who, by the grace of a Creator God, become redeemed at some point in the Hereafter, limits our ability to change thIS World, which WE have created. 

ETERNITY is merely the continual renewing of Now… there is no Afternow. Choosing to be an Atheist is about accepting the responsibility for Living Life in the Present. Yesterdays exist only in the memories of those who are now alive… Tomorrows do not exist at all, except in the imaginations of those who dream. NOW is all we will ever have… for Life is a Journey  without beginning or end. 

This, of course, is only my understanding of Life.. you are welcome to reject it without fear of reprisal or eternal damnation.

When we see Energy as the connection of all Living Things it unifies us. Energy is Us and We are Energy… however if we add a Creator God to the picture it separates us and makes unity impossible for two reasons. First being, that if a God created the Energy (Light), He is separate from that energy. God is not us and we are not God. He is an Entity that needs to be defined, acknowledged and worshiped, which brings us to the second reason there can not be unity… we all define, acknowledge and worship “God” in different ways and, because we see him as a personal God, my God will always trump your god. I believe that Life is an eternal Energy without beginning or end and the reality we live in is simply Life experiencing Itself. Let us rejoice and be glad in It!

Most Truths are either black or white… but few men can expound on them without adding a bit of color.

We all see the poor everyday, although most of us have become accustomed to them and go about our business by stepping around them. It is no different than any of the other evils, like corruption, injustice, pollution, and Earth’s destruction, that we do nothing about because we assume we are powerless to make a change… but is that really the truth? Have we come to accept as fact, that we are a fallen race of evil beings because of the disobedience of one man and but for the grace of God only some of us will escape this evil life and be able to live with God in the ever after? I would challenge that idea and boldly claim that we are the Creators of the world we live in and as such have the ability to make a change in the way things are. I do it everyday and so can you… simply by being the Jesus in your community.

Homosexuality has most likely been around since before mankind evolved. They were and still are accepted in many cultures even today and their actions are not considered sinful or unnatural… however in those cultures developed by the Abrahamic religions it is different. From my point of view, the God of Abraham appears to have had some sexual hangups, since he calls homosexuality an abomination, yet insist that every man must cut his penis to prove his love for him, while telling the woman she must shut her mouth and be covered.

Within the Hindu and Buddhist societies however, homosexuality is more acceptable and the result is far less discrimination toward the individual and less psychological damage resulting from guilt… less suicide amongst young people as well. To tell a young person that they are an abomination because they have an attraction to the same sex is for me the greater sin.

One of the most incredible parts of the body, and a good argument for intelligent design… are parts few ever give notice to and are seldom discussed, even though we all use them regularly, and in fact without them we would die. The sphincter muscle has the ability to retain fluids and solids within our body long enough to absorb all of the nutrients from the foods we eat, and one in particular called the anus that keeps the gas and liquid waste tightly concealed within our rectum, until we decide it is convenient to expel them.

There are some people in our society who also act as Sphincters… holding on to beliefs and convictions once considered important for mankind but over time amount to nothing more than shit. Isn’t it time to tell the assholes of this world to empty the rectum so that we can move on, in comfort, to consume new ideas and form new convictions that will make this world a better place to live?

The fervent prayer of a righteous man, to any god of his choosing, is an absolutely useless gesture, while kneeling at the waters edge, watching a drowning child go down for the last time. I have no problem with those who find strength in voicing their concerns to an invisible god… but when there is work to be done, I much prefer a silent man with dirty hands.

It is my opinion that those who deny that mankind is destroying the Earth and it’s atmosphere, are like those who buy a pack of cigarettes, smile as they read the Warning label, and than light one up. The only difference is that the smoker will only damage his life and possibly the lives of those around him… while the denier could potentially destroy the lives of millions.

Christians persecuting Muslim… Muslims persecuting Christians… it should be obvious that those who use their religion as a tool of destruction are not Spiritual beings at all, for no man, who follows a God created in his own image, has any understanding of what it means to be Spiritual.

Love without Justice does not work … and there is no greater example of this than Jesus himself, who ended his ministry not in Love, but in anger… with a whip in his hand.

Many have told me that there is but One True God… however, all who have shared this insisted that HE was theirs. A more likely Truth would be that there are as many god’s as there are people who believe in them.

The only way Christians will ever defeat Radical Islamist,  is to become even more radical than they are… but until they are willing to get down on their hands and knees several times a day  in public to pray to their God, or strape on a vest filled with explosives and detonate it in some public square to prove their allegience, they will never succeed.

When god’s compete… it is humankind that suffers.

I have yet to meet a Christian leader for whom I could hold respect for, once I got to know them personally. That is not to say however, that I believe all who call themselves Christian are unworthy of respect… for I have known and hold in great esteem, many who go by that handle. I have also known and hold in great esteem others who go by different handles and therefore conclude that it is not the handle one uses that earns my respect but the individual behind the name.

The beauty of a fragrant rose can be measured by the amount of compost it was grown in… so too, the beauty of a loving and compassionate person can be measured by the degree of difficulties and hardship they have experienced. For that reason, be thankful to those who have mistreated or abused you… for they are the shit you needed for becoming a Rose.

In a true democracy, ALL people of a polity are considered equal and NONE have the right to use their race, color, or religious affiliation as a resource to gain an advantage over another. In other words… there is no room for a Trump.

More likely then not, a closet door that is always shut and closely guarded, contains some skeletons within it. Best to leave it alone, unless you are prepared to help in disposing of the bones.
