The Story of Religion

The Story of Religion   Once upon a time there was god. He came from nowhere spontaneously, or was always there. He existed, all powerful, in the midst of nothing for all time. He was powerful beyond all human understanding. He was also inherently kind and loving.   He decided that he would make the whole universe of more galaxies than the human mind could comprehend and so he did.   He thought it and it came into being out of nothing, just like he himself had done before.   He made the whole universe, with its zillions of galaxies, each made of trillions of stars, just so that he could place some humans on a small planet in an average galaxy that was in itself completely insignificant.   These humans were the focus of everything. They were the purpose for the existence of the whole universe and gave god a purpose…

Human Rights - Some Thoughts

There is no such thing as human rights. We do not have the right to be born, to live or to die. We do not have the right to not be abused, tortured, starved or beaten. We have no rights.   There is no such thing as a human right.   We are animals. Nature does not confer rights. It is simpl…

It seems to me that in recent times the fear and hatred has ratcheted up an emotional response that prevents any intelligent discussion on sensitive subjects. People form political camps. Put up their barriers and entrench themselves. They have no wish to 'engage with the enemy' argue a case or appl…

Sex and Original Sin

The confirmation hearings over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, along with the accusations of sexual impropriety in his younger days, represent the latest act in a drama that has been going on since recorded history began.  It has to do with the imbalance between the sexes in Western and …

Parable of Jesus - A New Patch on an Old Coat

Indulgence Please: If I can beg the indulgence of this forum, I'm going to (from time to time) write on the subject of the teachings of Jesus.   Many may think this is proselytizing.  If you think any mention of Jesus Christ is proselytizing and that offends you, please stop right here.…

Upper-Class Sociopaths

I haven't known very many rich and/or well-to-do people, and probably never will. However, the very few that I have at least been acquainted with are among the most mean, vicious, psychotic and sociopathic people I've ever encountered. They routinely get away with many things that you and I do not, …

A party devoid of honor and dignity

In a nation with only two parties, it is obscene that one party is now sewer scum willing take down half of the population with 'fuzzy' accusations. Men decreasingly reject marriage. They no longer can treat wonen with respect or kindness due to fear of accusations.   We have become the worst s…

I spent 2004 with the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa ("CJTF-HoA") as part of the Global War on Terrorism ("GWOT").   Although CJTF-HoA did not operate there, what was happening (and what had happened) in the failed state of Somalia was often a focus.  In the late 1990s, the East …

Thinking freely

I would suggest that to be a true free-thinker you have to be both atheist and anarchist, otherwise your thoughts are directed by others who claim to have the right to tell you what, and how, to think.Most of the world’s problems come from religion and politics and their use to stifle or…

Leftist: incapable of operating in a free society

Am I Brainwashed?

I recently had a rather vociferous debate about our Canadian Prime Minister, specifically how good a job he has done since being elected two years ago. Frustrated that he could not convince me of the exact opposite, declared that I was "brainwashed".  This is a common scenario that happens…

Portrait of a Liberal Jew

Several years ago, I had a particularly annoying neighbor in the form of a short, squat, bitchy, and ugly little Jewish cunt. The Washington license plates on her car, and the leftist and liberal stickers that literally covered the ass end of it, told me more about this person than I ever cared or w…

Emotional Honesty

My father insisted that men were rational, women emotional, and therefore, women were irrational and inferior to men.  He liked to prove his point by provoking his wife and daughters into a rage, at which time he would sit back and smirk. I learned from his example that emotional expression sho…

Lets face it Kavanough's accuser, Dr. Ford is hardly an innocent victim who by no fault of her own was horribly abused.  By her own admission she behaved stupidly and should have expected someone to grope her, given where she went and what she did.   She started off by doing something her …
