Quote of the day!

Why in any case is it necessary for God to intervene in human history, in human affairs, as almost every religion assumes happens? That God or the gods come down and tell humans, "No, don't do that, do this, don't forget this, don't pray in this way, don't worship anybody else, mutilate your children as follows." Why is there such a long list of things that god tells people to do? Why didn't God do it right in the first place? You start out the universe, you can do anything. You can see all future consequences of your present action. You want a certain desired end. Why don't you arrange it in the beginning? The intervention of God in human affairs speaks of incompetence. I don't say incompetence on a human scale. Clearly all of the views of God are much more competent then the most competent human. But it does not speak of omni-competence. It says there are limitations.

I have been in the presence of death and when I am, I like to think about life..

Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life. ~Albert Einstein

Quote of the day!

I think this quote is important when we study all religion. All the religions that have fantastical elements to them like in western religion with Moses parting the read sea or the Milk Miracle in Hinduism....

We have never seen, in our time, nature go out of her course. But we have good reason to believe that millions of lies have been told in the same time. It is therefore at least millions to one that the reporter of a miracle tells a lie.
Thomas Paine

Quote if the day!

If a Creator God exists, would he or she or IT or whatever the appropriate pronoun is, prefer a kind of sodden blockhead who worships while understanding nothing? Or would he prefer his votaries to admire the real universe in all its intricacy? I would suggest that science is, at least in part, informed worship. My deeply held belief is that if a god of anything like the traditional sort exists, then our curiosity and our intelligence are provided by such a god. We would be unappreciative of those gifts if we suppressed our passion to explore the universe and ourselves. On the other hand, if such a traditional god does not exist, the our curiosity and our intelligence are the essential tools for managing our survival and in an extremely dangerous time. In either care the Enterprise of knowledge is consistent surely with science; it should be with religion, and it is essential for the welfare of the human race.

Whats wrong with Satan..?

I have only briefly tried to understand Satanism.. (no not what a christian would think). But the true / real satanism that is being practiced. From what I read and understand (don't have the satanic bible) but true Satanism teaches true freedom. Freedom from everything, law, order, self respect, self control. When one goes to ponder such freedom, you would think that the natural response to such an idea would be enticing, well it does sound good on the surface, [I can do drugs and have no guilt? I can steal without thinking about what it does to others? I can sleep at night being free from the constraints of society and religion? I can lust after another? I can have uncontrolled greed? I can have free sex?]

The problem when we throw away religion is that we allow all the idiots who need those rules free roam on our planet. I would like to further develop this idea because it does fascinate me. When I was a teen I thought Anarchy should prevail and now.. I understand that I personally may be able to handle anarchy or I may be able to handle true freedom from the rules given by government and religion but there are many others who cannot handle the power and responsibility and until we are free from idiots we will have to continue to be sheep.

Speaking of sheep, I have many times called the masses, the drones, the static in my life "sheep".Well last Sunday while I was sitting in a christian church I realized the openly call themselves sheep. Seems peculiar, I do believe in god but I don't think that he wants me to be a sheep, he would want me to be the best being possible and fitting in, being a dumb sheep seems totally opposite of what he would expect from his greatest achievement (speaking of that, you ever think that perhaps god has moved on to better things?) Forgot about us since we can be a little boring? Wow a whole other topic.
