"People of the world are just as alarmed. This is no longer something that affects America. Her foreign policies have screwed us all - particularly when the Repugnatones are in charge."

The slavery of religion

Imagine if you were to be owned and held as property.  Imagine being controlled and told what to do, how to act, and how to think everyday . What if your livelihood depended so much on another person that thinking of freeing yourself only served to enhance feelings of helplessness ?   How would you feel if the very thought of the consequential results that would be triggered if you even attempted to challenge or free yourself from this slavery provided you a sense of normalcy with being owned…See More

"Well said, and very well supported by reason. About fifty years ago I decided: 1. that I would not do to another set of kids what my dad did to his, and 2. that the world didn't need any more people. I found and married a woman who for her…"

Be fruitful, multiply and die

Be fruitful and multiply.  What horrible advice.  We have a serious problem here on earth.  We have an estimated  7 billion people and very limited resources.  The world population is continuing to grow, but eventually, we will slow down. What is more disturbing is that humans have been caught up in separating each other by dividing themselves between imaginary territorial lines and fighting to either conquer or preserve the resources within those lines to guarantee survival.  If one steps back…See More

The struggle for meaning

I would like to bring out the inspiration of atheists today by drawing from two concepts brought forth by Charles Darwin’s observations.  In The Origin of Species, Darwin  writes about the struggle for existence.  Darwin’s observations led him to the following conclusion: “The dependency of one organic being on another, as of a parasite on its prey, lies generally between beings remote in the scale of nature. This is often the case with those which may strictly be said to struggle with each…See More

3 Men make a tiger

Posted on March 8, 2012 at 5:56pm 0 Comments

The Chinese culture has many phrases and sayings.  The term for these phrases is called "chengyu" and the Chinese have about 5000 of them.  Americans also use phrases, or expressions, to help describe an action (Point of no Return, Burning Bridges). One of my favorite Chinese chengyus is "Three men make a tiger". Below is the Wikipedia description of its origin:
