Islanders in the stars

Voyager II left the solar system.

Onboard instruments detected the change in environment, which gave me pause.

If there were aliens out there, and they stumbled upon the probes we sent out, what would they do?

If they’re anything like us – we’re fucked.

Like our governments, theirs might be imposing a quarantine on us. To protect the primitive people from the outside world. If history has taught US anything, and maybe them too, then contact of a highly developed society to a less developed society usually ends bad for the less developed society.

Not always because the natives got butchered, but because the culture shock drove them into an unhealthy lifestyle (many polynesian populations are combating obesity because of the abundance of the ‘modern’ world, whilst their ancestors evolved to endure scarcity), or because the higher developed society brought on diseases the natives had no immunity to (need I say ANYTHING?).

So a quarantine might be imposed to protect US. Like on north sentinel island.

Yeah, I was going to go there eventually.

So some nutjob christian missionary had the grand fucking idea of going there, and got killed.

Good riddance!

So far, no one hedged any plans of retrieving the body, no one swore revenge.

But what if he had (or HAS?) brought some pathogen to the island he was unaware of carrying? What if some asshole had the great idea of retrieving his body?

In either case the sentinelese would be fucked.

As would we be if some fundamental religitard from space thought to himself that they need to convert the primitives of the third planet to their one true religion.

Just some food for thought. Take care,

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!

No fap

There is something I don’t get about this.

Why are you making this public??

Seriously?

Jacking off doesn’t take ANYTHING away from you. It doesn’t hamr you, or anyone else in your life. If your taste in porn is so disgusting that you feel ashamed, now that is another topic. If you’re into illegal shit, that is a REAL problem, but the overall majority of the airheads out there are doing NoFap for utter no reason.
Not fapping doesn’t give you superpowers, it doesn’t improve your stamina, or health. It is utter nonsense.

But! And this needs to be said, just like Veganism or Religion, if it makes you happy – good for you. BUT KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!

Holy fucking moses!
That these things need to be said!
How would you feel if I started to blog REGULARLY about being a ProFap-Carnivorian-Hardcoreatheist? If I came here every week and started to preach to you the benefit of waxing the surfboard at least twice a day, intermissioned with large amounts of meat and defying god in every religion on the planet?

Perhaps that’d get my view up? Controversy attracts people…hmmm….I gotta go, and rethink my blog.

Superfoods!

I don’t know whether I have already presented my disdain – full on hatred is more like it – for this despicable garbage that is “superfoods”, if so, here we go again, if not, here we go.

◆First off, the people who birthed the term and continue to pass their stillbirth around like a real baby, are the sort of people who name(d) themselves after a fruit that evolved to be eaten by giant ice age sloths, and giant ice age sloths alone, and which is around today simply because ancient humans have cultivated that fruit after they had hunted the giant sloths to extinction – aka, the fruit was the bitch, the giant sloth its pimp. We killed the pimp, and became the bitch’s new pimp instead. People who call themselves after such a weak and unemancipated fruit, should not be allowed to birth any new terminology. 

◆There is no such thing as a superfood. If there were, EVERY human in the history of mankind would know about it, and eat it – with added vanilla taste and as a fish-milkshake.
Every religion would praise it as heavenly/divine shit, despite the fact that the infidels of the other religions (and the atheists) do so too. Every leader – including super racists – would’ve endorsed it, every zealous third-wave feminist would love it, despite the patriarchal (ab)use of “this feminine superfood”.
This isn’t happening at any point in history, what does that tell you?

◆”But, but, but, the western world only now discovered this edible treasure of ancient asian/mezoamerican culture!!!!” But, but, but, Asia traded with Europe throughout history, some medieval, or even ancient greek, discoverer would’ve gotten wind of the pussball berries. After the rapingdiscovery of America some schmuck somewhere would’ve returned with those ratdung-seeds, and we’d consume it daily since the fifteen hundreds. Hasn’t happened. Why?
Exactly.

◆Financial interest. Apples are as much a superfood as those fancy mice droppings from the Mayans, or some berries from central Asia. Fibres, vitamins, energy. But the ice age remnants did not elect this to be their superfood.
Why?
Not fancy enough, not enough money in it. Import that funky snot-berry mousedropping-seed and there’s money in it when you resell it as a superfood.

◆In some weird parallel universe, where the laws of physics do not exist, or work grossly different than here, there may be an odd, misshapen, world where terms that are non-descriptive of reality – like superfood(s) – have a rightful plafe of existence.
But not here.
Here, using this word in a sincere manner, shows just that the user of this, is a cranial ascetic, deprived of any rational thought, completely submerged in nutrional nonsense and woo.

Conclusion:
There are no superfoods.

Listen Zodiacs.

Every day, in the morning hours my town’s local radio station is devoting some 5 to 10 minutes an hour to reading vague “Horoscopes”. Then you’ll hear some dog shit like “Leo: today you excell at interpersonal realations, but beware money decisions.”

Who in the fraking world is this for?

What kind of empty existence, deprived of reasons for continuing life, sits in front of their radio (or car, or office) and listens to some (stolen phrase ahead) assoholic bitch tell them something that may apply to them?
Even if Horoscopes were real (which they’re not), a generalisation of an entire zodiac sign is like saying “White people, today you will be racist, but your white spouse will be in the mood.”. If that wasn’t hurtful enough try this analogy: “Blacks, stay away from cops, but watermelon is abundant today!”
What the fuck? It’s thinly veiled ‘racism’ based on zodiac signs. Zodiacism.

But we live in the 21st century. Zodiacs are bullshit. Horoscopes are bullshit. We have sent people men (let’s face the truth here, mkay?) to the moon, have established a permanent space station in orbit, discovered the building blocks of MATTER, and still people read/listen to/make Horoscopes???
I don’t get it.

Devote 5 to 10 minutes an hour to SCIENCE news. Not fairytale bullshit that is en parr with religiotic tales.

Stop bullshitting yourselves and others. Grow up and take responsibility for your lives, you can’t just lay back and say ‘horoscope said it’d be a failure day’, or wait for fortune to drop in your lap while doing nothing to get it.

Take care,

Random Commentary 12 June 15

I am deeply disturbed by and concerned over the fact, that I have arrived at a point in my life, where I am not enraged or surprised by, the news of a government (on planet earth) in the year 2015 (46 years after the moonlanding), convicting and imprisoning tourists for getting naked on a so called ‘sacred’ mountain, blaming said tourists to have thus caused a deadly and devastating earthquake.

I am not surprised.
I am not enraged.

Why not surprised?
Have you seen the world today?
There are people fighting to live in the desert their god has allocated them.
Tell you what, your god is an asshole, you should convert, or better yet become an atheist.
There are people denying shit that is IN FRONT OF THEM (global warming, evolution, vaccines, science in general) because it is not matching their scripture, or hippie faith.
So why on earth would it surprise me that a government is this backwards that it believes (or claims to) that a group of naked tourists causes earthquakes?

Why not enraged?
The nudists had a guide for the terrain who objected, because the mountain was considered ‘sacred’ by the natives.
So they KNEW that the spot they got naked and posed for a picture was considered sacred. Would they have posed nude on a cemetery? No.
Would they have gone full monty in a church, or a mosque, or a synagogue? Nope.
Why? Because many of them would’ve found that to be ‘indecent’. And they would (according to laws most everywhere) go to jail for indecency in a public space.
In essence, had they behaved the way they did there, some other ‘sacred’ site in a less lunatic country – still jailtime (or a fine). Much less, than in cuckoo land, but still.

Let us get this over with: a country’s government, obviously so retarded and backwards that Neandertals would look down on them, is over-punishing a group of people, who just pissed on another peoples faith and culture, blaming them for a natural desaster that would even have come to pass if the mountain in question was deserted except for a group of shamans.

Who is genuinely surprised?
Who is genuinely enraged?

Let me end today with a question: Suppose a group of tourists had gotten naked for a photo at the wailing wall, and Israel swooped down on their arses like a bag of hammers, would all those who cry foul-play now, cry the same tune then, or judge those ‘monsters’ for showing disrespect?
Exactly.

PS:
Just an FYI, I would not get naked anywhere even remotely public. I don’t have the physique for that. Even if I had, I am not that kind of person, I don’t even own any shorts (besides my swimming gear).
Do I find naked people (for what purpose ever) in a church, on a graveyard, in a sacred cave or on top a holy mountain offensive? NOPE!
On the contrary, frak religion.
Bring our good old traditions up to date, cultures are not a rigid unmoving thing. They need to evolve, to change, or else they die.
Nudity is not disrespectful.
If your theologians, or, worse, your politicians say, nudity (or kissing, or pre-marital sex) is a sin, question their sexuality, not the morality of naked (kissing, fracking) people. And then work against these theologians or politicians. As a collective, as a people.
Same with science. Or food.
Spirituality is neat, it’s a comforting thing. But do not let it interfere with LIFE.

“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.
