Your beliefs control your life.  It can go no other way.  And the more deep rooted, your beliefs, the broader the extent of their control and the more plausible these beliefs seem to be.  Whether you…Continue

"In my opinion, religions can be many things. Marx, I believe, said that religions give consolation to people, so that they can bear with the oppression they suffer. This is close to what you said, that it is a kind of drug. However, it can be much…"

Religitardation of

Several years ago when I was still living with my mom, she was positively upset about what seemed to be my lack of direction. I was in my late teens and had trouble getting job. As soon as she began her lecture (sitting on chair next to the window), one of the loudest thunders we ever heard rolled, interrupting her little reprimand. It scared the living daylights out of her and she even moved from the seat at the window. Immediately, she began insisting how much that thunder was a sign (along…See More

Earlier I watched the midday news on the local TV station here and what I saw really shook me. I'm referring to the disaster in the Philippines - homes and lives destroyed, people desperate for help and dead bodies littering the streets causing the sent of carrion to permeate through the air. It's nothing short of horrendous! But something ended up appalling me even more. A woman, a christian, decided to use the opportunity to thank god for sparing her life and hope this disaster could serve as…See More

Belief Kill and Belief Cure

Your beliefs control your life.  It can go no other way.  And the more deep rooted, your beliefs, the broader the extent of their control and the more plausible these beliefs seem to be.  Whether you believe in energy, aliens or deities, your beliefs will be reinforced in every aspect of your life via the things you do, the things that happen to you and the things that happen that you become aware of.  This fact is very easy for you to prove to yourself.  Just take the time to step back and…See More

About Me:
Every since I was little, I never truly believed in the stuff they tried to indoctrinate me with. And especially since this is such a wildly religious country, I just did what everyone else was doing because it was what I was taught, and it took me a while to gather the courage to openly admit, 'I don't beleee non a dat shit!'
