My Philosophy!

So, my sister is in town, and she's a "born-again Christian" (kind of), so me being the anti-religious person that I am, I tried to stay away from debating with her about the fallacies' of Christianity. I mention a couple things about the contradictions in the Bible, and how an infallible God could change his mind or make mistakes (which would make him, indeed, fallible). I don't hate religion, as I've stated before (everyone is entitled to believe what that must), I just feel that if a topic is brought up, I must respond with my take. I've called religious persons "children with imaginary friends" before, I've stated that "God comes off as an asshole in the Bible" before, I've even said that "religious people could be compared to crazy people that believe in magic" (my favorite description). From this point on, I'll say this entry is just me backing up some of my claims with evidence and research. I want, excuse me, I strive to understand "Intelligent Design", and what makes it difference from traditional "Creationism" (besides the absence of the name, God). To say that everything on the planet was intelligently designed to fit some specific goal is asinine and moronic; I dare a believer of this theory to explain the Dodo, the Platypus, why Rabbits eat their own feces, and other idiotic creations and biological mechanisms on this planet. If small evolutions in certain organisms have taken place in the short time that man has resided on this planet, how can evolution as a whole be denied. I recently watched a very insightful documentary entitled "Flock of Dodos: The Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus", it was about the debate to introduce "Intelligent Design" into classrooms (to make American students dumber than they currently are). It didn't really delve that deep into Darwinism, the Mendelian Inheritance, Genetic Drift, Adaptation, and other related components of the entire "Evolution Theory" (or should I say "Evolution Fact"), it was interesting to see the unintelligent arguments for "Intelligent Design". The proponents for this theory used man made structures such as Mount Rushmore to support their belief, stating that you can tell intelligence went into the design of Mount Rushmore (no duh, idiot). They compared that to the system of DNA structure in organisms, not taking into consideration that DNA structures in certain organisms changed over periods of time (which is the definition of evolution). Let's take it back for a second to the founding belief, "Creationism"; a loving, perfect God creates each and every organism on the planet. If this is true and God's designs, or God, himself is perfect, how does that explain birth defects, Down Syndrome, and other genetic "mutations" (I know the normal Christian answer, "God works in mysterious ways", and I call bullshit). I know some people are asking, how can I question somebody else's religious beliefs? The answer is simply that throughout my short 25 years on this planet, I have managed to read the Bible, the Torah, the Quran, some of other religious doctrines, history books, biology texts, anthropological studies, and other relevant writings on the study of mythology (or to some, religion). I have read about Ancient Egyptian deities (where most of western religion adopted its stories), I have recently started reading about Ancient Sumerian deities (which also has been bastardized for Christianity as well as that insane Scientology). I have been reading up on Mormonism, to further understand Joseph Smith's doctrine. I am a follower of science, and theology and mythology is the science that interests me. I beg any Christian out there to explain to me how a perfect, infallible God could have contradictions in his book (don't say because it's written by men, because then I'll ask, why you hold a series of books written by men as God's work, and why do you lie to others as well as yourself about its divine creation). Can somebody tell me which God is indeed the true God, and if so why? Why would a jealous God (words straight out of your Bible) allow people to worship other Gods? Why is the Old Testament God in direct opposition to the New Testament God? I welcome anybody to converse with me about their religious beliefs, or lack thereof, and answer my questions or ask me questions. I know it's against Christian law to question God (quoted from your book), but if you follow something blindly, ultimately you will fall.

Peace, I mean WAR!

Just To Get By!

Its time for another installment in my ever going series "The Pussification of Modern Society". My last installment was about the "Cry-babies" for equal rights, the one before that was about modern mans obsession with beauty, before that was the weakness of today's youth, and prior to that was my views on hate and prejudices, and the first one was my main point of the pussification of modern society. So I've commented on the feminine ways of today's "Esquire" man (a category that I, myself fall into), I've talked about how parents coddle their children to the point of weakening their children's spirits as well as their bodies. I want to touch on the so-called patriots and how they have turned most of America into pussies. From politicians to news anchors to journalist, everyone is afraid to comment on the state of America. The only people brave enough to speak against the government are comedians (because nobody takes them serious anyway), activist (because nobody is listening to them anyway) and conspiracy theorist (because everybody thinks they're crazy). People are afraid to question the system, people are afraid to ask the right question, because they fear being called unpatriotic. America went from bra-burnings, protests, marches for civil rights, and civil disobedience to unwavering blind faith in incompetence. It's sort of like we live in a "1984" dystopian society, only difference is we, as a people and not fully the government, have made ourselves docile sheep following the dumb herd dog off of the cliff. Americans seem to forget that America was formed by people that questioned the government (because they wanted to get freaky without the British government being in the bedroom). It is the "American Way" to question the government. People used to fight for what they believed in, it seems like people are afraid to stand up for their beliefs today. With so much information in our hands, with the internet, television, books (I know that's something a lot of people don't use), etc, we should be smarter than we are. With all the information, the resources, the spas and the gyms, why are Americans the most obese in the world? Why are there so many recalls on products, and special safety regulations? My answer is that the world is being "pussified" more and more each and everyday. Once we all stop crying about discrimination, worrying about trends, coddling the children, and we start fighting for our future, we can put the power back in the hands of the people. Because if the pussification continues, we'll all be living in a society that resembles the movie "Idiocracy".
