Sometimes I honestly think that I am the only one out there who ponders abstract things. I feel that people in general are quite niave and usually do not have a clue about anything, but they are more concerned about their house, their taxes, their car, how their social life is doing, ect. They seem to just wander the earth, left in socialtal bounds, following a strict, uniform order, in which they are nothing more than conformists, and could care less about the order of the universe. I feel like most things I prefer to learn and think about are less important in the eyes of the non-self aware people. Things such as philosophy, astrophysics, neuralscience, psychology, mathmatics, ect. I often ponder why people often REFUSE to learn these important subjects. Why??? Because their STUPID!!! Lets face the facts. We think we are all special. Look at all our religions, Christianity, Islam, Scientology (if thats not a cult), all of them are bullshit. Can we honestly say that we will go to a place where a big red guy with hooves and a pitchfork will boil me alive in the center of the earth, for all eternity, IF I dont believe in the church and obey its every word and law??? In the middle ages, one of Martin Luther's followers decided to oppose the church by saying the word of God was more important than the churches. He was promply burnt at the stake. Religion has done more harm than any other idea on the planet (Perhaps less than the nazi idea of Aryans as the Master Race, but religion has caused harm in itself). Now, I am going to bring up an old argument: If we found an alien race, It would probablly change a lot of religons. Why? We're no longer special. We arnt the only ones who are capable of thinking that were better than everything else. You see, religion is a giant ego trip for the human race. Honestly, I think we might not be better off with out it in some cases, like all the charity going to disaster victims, people having no empathy, ect. However, just think of all the religious right activists we have in the united states. I dont have a choice. Every day, I HAVE to stand up and respect my allegiance to God, even through I am an athiest. Why? Stupid people. Stupid people that believe in things like "Angels" and "Demons!!!" and "God" and all this other bullshit. Point is, we are nothing more than a phenomenan occurring in our brain by the interaction of neural cells. Religion is utter bullshit. Religion is FALSE. And yet with the growing age of science, we STILL believe in it. Religion is not the study of fact, it is the study of FICTION. However, some ideals are somewhat moral and true. Abortion should have some bounderies, for example. Now dont get me wrong, I dont believe in sucking a fetuses brains out. Hell no. However, I do believe in killing off a few mindless cells to prevent 18 years of hardship of some teenage slut.

I find it reassuring to see that i am not one of the only people who thinks about these issues. I would write a lot but i am not feeling like it so i would just make some small comments.

The mass people who believe in religous deitys ( i dont know the plural for deity) are uneducated.

Change in soceity and the common way of thought will be quickly ignored until its too late sadly.

At the rate we are going mankind is unfortunately doomed.

I would love to continue an intelligent conversation, but i am very lazy, maybe some other time...

You know, when comes to bullshit, and I mean big time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims...

Religion.

No contest. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story of all time ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do of every minute of everyday. And this invisible man has a special list of 10 things he does not want you to do! And if you do ANY of these 10 things he has a sepcial place full of fire, smoke, burning, anguish, and torture where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and scream and choke and cry forever and ever UNTIL THE END OF TIME!!!


But he loves you.


He loves you. He loves you and he needs money!!

He always needs money! He

What are you going on about Cornell?

Anyway... the best anti-religion site is got to be http://www.normalbobsmith.com/

Normal Bob is the guy who made the 'Jesus Dress Up' game:
http://www.jesusdressup.com/

Check out Normal Bob's Hate Mail section. Hundreds of pages of incredibly good reading.

I remember there was a great explanation of why Normal Bob is called Normal Bob. It went kind of like this: if you don't believe in Smurfs then are you an anti-smurfist? No. You're just normal. If you don't believe in Rakklesnaks the Ultimate in the 9th dimension then are you an anti-rakklesnaksist? No. You're normal. And if you don't believe in God and that women are made out of man-ribs and the garden of Eden and talking snakes and the apple that doomed humankind... are you an atheist? (Well yeah maybe) but really you're just NORMAL.

No, SuperJer. You've got it all wrong!

If you don't believe in smurfs, then you are not anti-smurfist... however, if you don't believe in Jesus, that inherently means you HATE him and are therefore anti-christian. Didn't you know?

Have you ever hung out with people trying to learn philsophy, and failing? It's not a pretty sight. Usually they just kick things and talk about how much it sucks. Even with the people that bother to learn, a good portion of the time they just spend their time vomiting up the lines they read without ever really internalizing or contextualizing the works. Most people are just looking for other people to more eloquently state what they were already thinking.

I don't have a problem with any particular religion, or even any particular science, but declaring any one of them as be all and end all is foolhardy, and I'll react to whatever the dominant paradigm is accordingly. I try to figure out as much as I can about as many things as I can so that I can interrelate them and see if the picture becomes any clearer. But hell, I'm crazy, so....
