Oh my GOD, Jehovah, Yahweh, Allah, Jah, Vishnu, Buddha, G-D, Ahura Mazda, etc.!!!!

Alright, I guess it's time for another one of my anti-religion rants. I know I've been given Christianity a hard time, but it's necessary because they annoy me the most. But almost all religions are preposterous to me, the fantasy writings that are believed by the destitute, indigents, and scorn persons. I'll always skip Judaism, because it is essentially the same thing as Christianity(hence the term Judeo-Christian), minus the New Testament, Jesus' magic show, and with an additional 400 or so Commandments. Even though I like some of the doctrines of Buddhism, it is still a bastardized version of Hinduism(one of the oldest religions, before Christians precious Bible was even dreamed up). My problem with Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism(a bastardize version of Hinduism and Islamic Sufism), and other religions from the India region of Asia, is that they are all basically derivatives of old Aryan beliefs. The Aryans invade Northern India circa 1500 BC, and with them they brought their religion(sort of how Blacks in America maintain the slave-masters Christian religion). These religions, depending on the sect, believe in polytheism, or a form of monotheism, one GOD with multiple avatars. The difference between these religions and most Western religions(Christianity, Judaism, Islam), is that these religions focus more on personal growth and inner piece, rather than submitting and worshiping their GOD. Another one of my problems with these religions are that they all follow the tradition of saying that their religion was given to them by GOD, when it is clear to see that their beliefs are heterogeneous. I'm going to skip the other Asian religions, because my main focus is on the top five religious beliefs, in decreasing order, Christianity, Islam, secular/agnostic/atheist/deist(how dare I, as a deist, be put in the same category as an atheist), Chinese folk religions(who I'm not going to mess with, for now), and Buddhism. I'm going to skip right over to Islam now, since it is a major topic in this whole terrorism war. Islam is an Abrahamic religion, meaning, like Christianity, it is an offshoot of Judaic beliefs. Even though Islam is considered by Muslims as the last testament of Abrahamic religions, they believe that Christians and Jews have a distorted message from GOD. Supposedly, Muhammad, the "co-author" of the Quran, couldn't read or write, so he recited the words from GOD to his companions. While on a missionary journey through the Middle East, Muhammad and his army, raided markets in Mecca, was defeated by the Byzantine Empire, took over and lost Mecca, and controlled most of the Arabian peninsula. The Muslims believe that the Tawrat(Jewish Holy Torah aka The Old Testament) and the Injil(The Holy Gospel aka The New Testament), have been tampered with over time(which is true, thanks to the Roman Catholic Church), and that the Quran is perfect. I've read the Bible and the Quran, and the Quran is basically a carbon copy of the Bible, so how much of the Bible was changed. My problem with Islam, besides the decapitating infidels and Muhammad's flying white horse, is that it's the same unrealistic fantasy as Christianity. The same "man in a whale" story, the same creation story, the same flood, etc.. Even though some(Mos Def on "RealTime with Bill Maher"), Islam is a religion based on violence(like most religions), throughout the Quran, violent acts are committed in the name of Allah. The idea of Jihad, or "struggle", is that a Muslim's duty is to convert non-Muslims. A non-Muslim must convert, pay a tax, or perish at the hands of a Muslim. I used to align my ideologies with the Islamic ideologies, from an American sect called the Nation of Islam(which is not actually Islam), to The Five Percenter's Nation(whose science and mathematics are a little off), to Sunni Islam(I can't grow one of those Freeway beards), but my sensibilities overcame it. My problem with Islam is basically the same as my problem with Christianity, the magic and the fairy tales. I also have a problem with the concept of Salaat, why do I have to pray five times a day, did Allah not hear me the first time? Then there's Zakat, or Tithes to Christians, to which I ask, why Allah needs my money, if Allah is omnipotent? Are there Starbucks in Jannah/Heaven? (I'm going to stop talking about Islam, before some Muslims blow me up.) Since, I'm not too verse on Chinese folk religions, I'm going to let them slide for now. I will touch on the third largest religious group, a collection of groups actually. It consists of Atheist; who reject the belief in GOD or Gods, Agnostics; who believe that religious beliefs and the existence of GOD or Gods is unknown, Anti theist; who are opposed to religious beliefs, Rationalist; who depend on knowledge, justification, intellect, and basically reasoning to define their beliefs(like Socrates, Plato, Pythagoras, and me), Deists; who use reasoning to assert that their is a creator, that does not interfere with human life and dismiss the religious books and the prophecies and miracles within them(I could be considered a Deist too, I do believe there was a creator), as well as Pantheist, Humanist and others. My question to Atheists is, if no GOD or Gods existed, how did anything come to be? And the Big Bang is not an explanation, because it doesn't account for energy appearing out of a void. Just like any story, there must be a beginning. I have no problem with Agnostics, because they have a valid point. Without any valid historical, anthropological or archaeological proof that the events of religious texts ever occurred, it's easy to doubt the truth behind them. Now anti theists, which I was, are opposed to religion as an organization. I too, like Anti theists, am opposed to organized religion and find it harmful, but unlike Anti theists, I believe in a creator. I am a Rationalist, if I see a problem, i use reasoning and deduction to come up with a solution. So when I read religious text, I see certain hypocrisies, certain missing pieces, certain fantastical events, and other things that lead me to not accepting these scriptures. When I look at everyday life and the events that we, as humans, experience, I question the interaction between a GOD and humans. I've went over it again and again, and I've thought about evolution(which is a fact and not a theory), the Big Bang, and other non-creationist ideas, and I've reasoned that there must have been something in the beginning, some type of creator. I've read the Bible, the Young Earth creationists, and other creationist theories, in which the Earth is only about 6000 years old. Geologists, astronomers, planetologists, physicists, and biologists have determined that the Earth is older than 4 billion years old(that's a huge range, 6000 to 4 billion; whats more accurate, radiometric age test or a book about magic). My rational opposition to religion and my belief in a creator, leads me to labeling myself a Deist. Religious people always talk of wisdom, which means good judgement, but following a book about fantastic miracles is not good judgement. You all can work off of wisdom, I'll continue to focus on obtaining and utilizing knowledge. I didn't really touch on my least favorite religion, Christianity, but I will in my next entry, as well as the harm of religious ideology, the slave mentality of Christians, and some other things concerning Christianity.

Peace, I mean WAR!

Hello. Often the Internet can see links like [url=http://www.whitehutchinson.com/aboutus/]Buy cialis without prescription[/url] or [url=http://www.rc.umd.edu/bibliographies/]Buy cialis without prescription[/url]. Is it safe to buy in pharmacies such goods?

Phentermine resin became available in the United States in 1959 and Phentermine Hydrochloride in the early 1970s.
[url=http://www.buyphentermine1.com]phentermine[/url]

What is phentermine?
Oral phentermine Hydrochloride (HCL) is sold for weight loss. It is in the Sympathomimetic family of appetite suppressants (used for the short-term management of exogenous obesity.)
When used in conjunction with diet, exercise, and behavior therapy, phentermine may help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat and to exercise.

Most people take the drug for 3-6 weeks; the length of treatment depends on how you respond to phentermine. Phentermine can be habit-forming. Do not take a larger dose, take it more often, or for a longer period than your doctor tells you to.

To prevent side effects, phentermine should be taken with meals. If you are taking an extended-release (long-acting) product, do not chew or crush the tablet. There are some tablets that can be crushed and mixed with food.

Some of the sports that are being bet online are horse racing, greyhound racing, and football.Online betting works the same with all the betting websites on the net. These businesses have grown for years. You can play with it by using a single account. Some of these websites also offer gambling online, you are just like playing at the casino and you can bet using the same account.

Online sportsbooks cover them all. It's important to establish a bankroll and bet size. Many inexperienced sports bettors don't think about money management and pick an arbitrary bet amount. This strategy is very risky. It's always best to think about your bankroll and pick the right bet size based on your bankroll. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
