Hallelujah!?

I hereby advance DARWIN to godhood. A truly modern religion, befitting of the 21st century, for at the foundation lies evolution and natural selection:
There’ll be no prayers, no songs, no gatherings, no special hats or clothes, no churches/synagogues/mosques/temples.

Just, human sacrifice.
Passive, human sacrifice.

Take off ALL the warning labels, stop these sorts of warnings – if people wanna roast marshmallows over an active volcano, if they want to toast bread in the hot tub, if they want to jump out the 17th floor to see if the superman costume let’s them fly:

Let them!

We shall NOT mourn the loss of their lives, the loss of their genes in the genepool, because our GOD, the divine and eternal DARWIN, has culled another sacrificial lamb, to advance the species through natural selection.

AMEN!

Tue 22nd March 2016

Again some people blew themselves up in an urban area killing innocent people.
Again it was done by people who did it because they have an infirority complex about their god.
Again.
Just like a few days ago (or was it a week already?) in Turkey.

Again.

Now I’m not particularly sad about people losing their lives, although it is a tragedy and the victims, survivors and relatives have my sympathy.
I’m not in fear or terror that some insecure lunatic with a bomb might blow himself up in my face.
I’m not even all that enraged that all this is still a thing in this day and age – what ever stupid and arbitrary scale of measuring time (a.k.a. caldender) you adhere to – although admittedly I do feel a sizeable amount of anger.

Mostly, I’m just disappointed.

We have discovered/proven fucking gravitational waves just now!
We have unlocked the once indivisble thing (the atom) and discovered that the stuff that makes it up (protons, neutrons and electrons), is made up of even smaller things (quarks, etc.).
We KNOW that evolution is a thing – we can see it on a day to day basis with germs and even pests that develop immunity to our pesticides and antibiotics.
We KNOW that the earth is a sphere (I know it’s a bit bumpy, but a newly minted billard ball has deeper cravices than anything the earth has to offer, so STFU), orbiting the sun, which is in turn oribiting the center of the galaxy, which in turn is but one of hundreds of thousands in the observable universe.
We know the big bang is a thing, and we know almost everything that happened in those first moments after it occured.
We have deciphered our genome, and we KNOW that we share 98.9% of our genes with our closest relative in the animal kingdom – the chimpanzee!
We have technologies that allow us to communicate with people on the other side of the planet as if they were in the room with us. We have devices that fit in our hands that can store more information and perform more calculations than what was necessary to land people on the fucking moon and bring them back a few days later.

And STILL!
STILL people kill each other based on some trivial shit such as skin color or the even more retarded thing to get upset about – INVISIBLE FRIENDS!

If god exists – and you morons keep insisting on that – he or she or it is not proud of any of you (or me). He/she/it is disappointed.
Once you die, none of you fuckers is going to heaven. You’ll go to the pearly gates, where you will be greeted by god, slowly shaking his/her/its head showing the utter disappointment in your conduct in life. (Whether you’re a radical religious nut, xenophobe or nationalist doesn’t matter.)
And off you go. He whisks you off to someplace else. Wherever that may be.

So no.
I am not mad.
I am not sad.
I am disappointed.

Here’s to hope that all these differenfes will be forgotten or overcome soon, and that our shithead politicians, religious leaders and economic leaders will either be burned publicly to make an example, so that we will stop bloodshed over NOTHING, and stop burning coal and oil while we can make electricity out of daylight and wind.
Maybe we can create a clean and sustainable future for ourselves, launch ourselves into space and spread out.
So we will survive the inevitable desaster that WILL one day smash into our planet potentially killing close to everything on the planet.

But that is the delusional hopes of a hopeless romantic and optimist, my realistic side tells me that the random GRB or stray asteroid wipingnus out would be a relief…

Take care,

“The big electron” – George Carlin

My thoughts after the January 7th attacks on Charlie Hebdo circled back on the topic of religion. Sometimes on my own volition, mostly because I was drawn in by some exterior force.
I could rant on for hundreds of pages how I believe religion is the most twisted thing in our present day and abused to do terrible things to others; there are radical Buddhists killing non buddhists! Yes, I can clearly remember Buddha sitting under that tree, meditating, coming up with peace, balance, discarding the worldly and all that weighs you down and, oh, also kill all that believe in a form of personified god, or non at all.

Some cultures on earth are in desperate need of a renesaince of their own, the separation of church and state. DESPERATE need indeed. But I digress.

I don’t believe in god.

There. Said it. I don’t believe in god, but I believe in the supernatural, in the almost divine.

How?
My personal belief intertwines with science. That’s how.
What makes you, you, or me, me, is energy. Electric impulses stored in the brain. Energy, basically.

Energy can not be created, nor destroyed. It can only be transformed, radiating outwards, etc.
When you die, you do not wither away with that lump of crap in your skull! Energy, remember?
It is my belief that we radiate outwards into the universe, the world around us. The Background Radiation we can detect from all over space, the afterglow of the Big Bang, might just be “souls” in their natural state.
Free and unbound.

This can neither be proven, nor disproven, just as all the other nonsense we believe in. Hence “BELIEF”! Get it? It is called BELIEF, not KNOWINGS.
If there was irrefutable proof of any of this crap, there’d be no fights over it.
Well.
There is irrefutable proof of climate change, and there are fights over that, but I mean like WAR. Not some fat, balding, bribed bought lobbied politicians in senate versus the sane population of earth.

So after you die, it is my belief, that you rejoin the rest of the universe in pure energy. Not in a flashy, visually appealing way, but none the less, back to the universe, back to the big electron, as George Carlin said.

Why do I not believe in a divine entity governing all this? Because there is NO governing body in the universe. There is no GOOD or EVIL either.
You might view a Fox killing a rabbit as something evil, but when you see that same fox dragging the dead animal to its den to feed its young, you must realise – there is no evil (nor good) in nature, or the universe.

So relax, enjoy the ride.
Believe in what you desire to believe, but keep your belief out of the real world. I am not forcing anyone to bow down to the university of the big electron, neither should you enforce your snake talking, apple biting, nude, rib-woman lineage on me. Or anyone else for that matter.

We’ll see each other again in the big electron, valhalla, shangrila, heaven/hell/hades, afterlife or the next life time.
Until then, keep enjoying life and don’t make it the disgusting casting show for the afterlife.

Topical (Charlie Hebdo)

In many places of the modern world we (mankind) have ditched silly, stupid and idiotic religous ideals and beliefs in favor of humanistic ideals and scientifically proven facts.
All the while we still kept believing in what ever looney shit we believed in before.

But that separation of fairytales about an invisible and omnipotent space daddy, and the real world that we all share with one another, allowed us to poke fun at the fairytales.
It allowed us to step back from what we believe(d) in and study it with a smirk on the face, perhaps even laugh at it. I mean, come on, a talking snake, a magic tree, a rib woman and a naked dude?
Really? XD

It is that separation of fairytales and real world that allowed us to proceed away from the-earth-is-flat-and-is-the-center-of-the-universe and embrace the truth about the universe, and our humbling, insignificant place in it. That separation allowed us to review the current state with criticism, and that criticism often came in the form of satire. Through that critical look on the current state we gained insghts, and changed what needed changing, so we came to where we are at now.

If there truly is an omnipotent being that shat out the universe in some wet dream, it doesn’t give a crap about us.
About you, about me.
If some maniac in the friggin desert has a drug or seizure induced dream about weird ghosts and gods, that omnipotent entity doesn’t give a rat’s hairy ass about it, nor was it involved, as it – as previously mentioned – doesn’t care about this insignificant ape creature that was too dumb to stay in the tree.
Therefore, the same omnipotent thing out there, cares even less (and much less endorses) some insignificant oxygen wasting sack of organs killing another sack of organs of equal importance, that just happens to believe something else, or nothing at all.

Right now, the situation in Europe is already tense. There is much hate, and even more potential for hatred. Recent events have fueled this, like pouring gasoline in a flame.
Extremists always spoil things.
This is why we can’t have nice things.

Stand up, against extremism.
But refrain from becoming an extremist yourself. If you participate in any form of backlash against an entire culture/religion/etc. you are the same despicable scum that got you enraged in the first place. This is why we can’t have nice things, too.

Later today, I’ll post the thing I had originally planned for today, some poking fun at spiritual non-sense, that I made up during research for my Christmas Calendar 2014.

Backwards Religion

Sometimes when you look around and actually contemplate what we do to the planet, you must have the same conclusion that I had.

Religion got things backwards.

If god and devil would truly exist, we must’ve come from the latter.
God created the heavens, the earth, oceans and so on. And in defiance of god, the devil created one thing, and ONE THING alone, that would frak up God’s creation:

A being that can make fire, craft tools and weapons to kill god’s creations, and lay waste to everything on earth:
MAN.

Some of the things commanded unto man in the bible(s) sound pretty devilish too. We should make use of the land (no matter what)? We should go forth and procreate (like a fraking virus)?
All words of a malevoelnt entity wanting to destroy the creation of it’s arch enemy.

Then god steps in puts some commandments down, and tries to halt that shit. Tries to drown us all, but someone was wiese and quick enough to build an ark. Probably under the influence of a double agent in the supernatural war of magnificence between god and devil.

The more you think of it, the more you have to realise the whole thing sounds also pretty schizophrenic. Maybe there is no devil, but god has two personalities.

Or it’s just fairytales for adults in the god damn desert, where the occassional Thursday rain looks like a damn flood.

All in all, let’s not make use of the land the way we do now and did in the recent past. Let’s live in accordance with nature. Take our que from nature, the water and we must flow together, not fight against one another…

I’ve read recently “Thanking god for saving your house in a tornado while your neighbors got hit is like wriking a Thank-You-Letter to a serial killer for killing the people next door but not you.” – I concur.

I can imagine that prayer going like this “Thank you dear god for destroying the Smiths, their property and cattle, but not us and ours. Thanks a lot, love Jon. Amen.”

News has it that the NSA has been reading our text messages (amongst monitorin our calls and our E-Mails). Now, I know that they filter it with a computer for certain words, but imagine the poor Fraker going through a text message suspicious conversation…
“I’m dropping a bomb on my parents.”
“What?”
“I’M PREGNANT!”
“Julie, this IS your mother! Again: WHAT???”
“Uuuuhm….”

And that poor dude is just sitting there, not even able to flinch or smirk anymore.
Let alone laugh.
And because Julie once sent “Bomb” in a text message she’s under clsoer surveilance, after all, she might be writing in “code” now.
“Did you see teh dress that Kim is wearing? Oh Em Gee!” Poor Agent Smith is loosing the last bits of hope he had for the human race, and hopes for a Taliban Crazy to fly a plane into the NSA headqarters so his miserable life would find an end.

And of course, let’s not forget, the computer saw that Julie wrote her mum the word “Bomb” and now monitors the mother too more closely, and since she too might be writing in “code”, a living agent has to read her crap too. Perhaps even poor Agent Smith.
And now he knows that Julies Mom has an affair with Kim’s dad, and she found out, but to shut her up she bought Kim the hideous dress that Julie wrote about before….it’s worse than “The Bold and Beautiful”, and one day Agent Smith is found hanging in his garage, a suicide note lying next to him saying just “STFU!”…(Plottwist: Julie ALSO has an affair with Kim’s dad and he’s her baby’s father….)

There are news, and there are “news”. I recently stumbled upon a “news” blog here on WordPress. It’s in german, so most of you can be spared the pain, and honestly, I don’t want to give THEM any trackbacks or traffic, so there is no link or name.
But let me tell you that these people are as paranoid as they come. They make people who fear that Bush staged 9/11 and Obama is preparing a “Liberal Negro Takeover” pale im comparison. Let me just state right out here some contra facts: Toothpaste isn’t killing you. Vaccinations are your friend, not the enemy that increases hayfever (going back to ancient Babylon), causes cancer/mental illnes (falsified research in order to press charges) or death (WTF??). The only “New World Order” that is imposed on us is an economic one, and it will devour itself before it got going. So lean back and enjoy the warmest winter in recent european history.
