WAKE UP; THERE IS NO GOD.

WTF. Until the election of that ridiculous grouping of assumed human DNA in the States; for the most part – I figure, if people want to believe in some sort of Fairy Godfather or Godmother – omnipotent/omnipresent – whatever, then fine…dandy…cool, if said invisible friend(s) didn’t start talking to the individual and telling them to kill things or blow ’em up, then, their beliefs are not my circus and not my monkeys.

Come on. The Trumps and Clintons, Falwells, Bannons and Spences don’t believe in god; they are lying through their teeth at you. What about their lives corresponds with ANYTHING you have been taught about your faith? NOT. A. DAMN. THING.

If they were truly Christian – then they wouldn’t be politicians for a start. They would not be living lives of excess. They are not enjoying rewards referred to in the religious texts. The rewards referred to in spiritual literature are spiritual rewards – not owning 10 cars, chauffeurs, designer clothing – none of which enriches anyone, least of all the people who desire them. I believe that is called “greed” and is frowned upon by invisible friends, of all religions.

This god thing? Come on people – it’s a freaking tool. If the peons/proles/Mom and Pop believe that if they are really good, humble and hardworking, god(s) fearing pious folk – then there is a paradise a’waitin’ around the corner. They will eat the shit that is dumped on them and say thank you, please sir…may I have some more.

What there is, is this life and how you choose to live it. The elite, political – religious – corporate, do their level best to ensure that you (proles) continue to believe in this fairy tale because it is what keeps them rich and unaccountable. You go to your church, your synagogue, mosque or ritual – looking for comfort, looking for spiritual security and the false blanket of faith is pulled down over your eyes and you believe.

The work day arrives and you get up, even though you are exhausted, get dressed, slap back some coffee or tea…struggle into your clothes, schlep to work where you waste your life making someone else rich, at the expense of your health and happiness. But hey…its all good because when that heart attack comes, when that stroke fries your brain – y’all will be goin’ ta heavin wi’the angels….

Bullshit. No. You will just die.  There is no god.  And yes, they have lied to you.  That’s why they have it all and we struggle to pay our bills.  They use it as a threat and they use it as a carrot.  

Wake up. No god, the bible is a book – just a book and not a very good one. It is a tool to keep you schlepping to work, to keep you from looking around and seeing what is going on behind those false curtains of piety that surround the elite.

It isn’t too late. While I am no communist – “Religion is the opium of the people”1 – truer words never spoken.

Fundamentalist Atheists – Hypocrites or In Pain

agnostic1I love my buddies; they are such an incredibly intelligent band of folks, always coming up with a smorgasbord of thought and opinions to consider. Yesterday, it was the disturbing tendency of Atheists to be obnoxious and just as stick necked as fundie Christians.

The similarities, between these two, apparently, polar opposites are pretty basic – fear and pain. Often, upon speaking to “fundie” Atheists, you will find people with scars born of the abuse only clergy can inflict; the abuse of the very essence of an innocent soul. The entire being of an individual is torn to shreds. It might be abuse of a physical nature, sexual or psychological abuse but it is abuse of the foundation of the individual. It destroys faith and for some, this is as bad as the actual abuse, if not, worse. Faith is used as a tool in healing, a powerful tool and when that tool has been annihilated? The abuse is compounded. This then “begets” fear. A horrible, crippling fear that this could happen again, if the guard is let down and other options examined. The fundie Atheist refuses to see the scenery, along the sides of the road, on their one way trip toward Irrefutable Logic Avenue.

This has a tendency to create anger beyond reason. The inability to see both sides, whether agreeing or being in total disagreement, the wounds are simply too deep and too wide. This is where the Atheist and the religious join hands. The religious also live in fear. They fear their own choices. They fear personal responsibility. They fear making decisions. They fear their god. Everything about them is based upon fear of any sort of freedom of choice. They refuse, just like the Atheists, to see potential truths that fall outside of their own road – “Pathologic Illogic Boulevard”.

The two groups have something else in common – their hatred for the Agnostic. They call them, voices tripping with scorn, “fence-sitters.” The Agnostic, on the other hand, remains firmly seated on their fence, willing to see both sides and asking one simple thing of both: proof. Prove that this bible, Q’ran, Torah/Talmud is based on fact. Prove that prophets are actually the voice of god and not simply faking it at best, suffering from mental illness at the very worst. Prove there is a god, a Jesus, a Mohammed, a Moses; show empirical evidence and the Agnostic will climb off the fence and join you.

On the other hand, prove – beyond the shadow of a doubt, that there is no higher power and that nothing happens at the end of the long road of life, except decomposition and the creation of a new dust bunny. Prove there is nothing beyond ourselves. The Agnostic would then, descend from the fence and join the ranks of the Atheists.

Neither group is able to prove their points beyond the shadow of doubt nor are they are unable to show proof absolute; this creates fear, fear begets anger and the Agnostic bears the brunt from both sides.

Religion or lack thereof is a lose/lose discussion. It is, virtually, impossible to fight fear when it is so, willingly, embraced and accepted, when it is a key stone of an individual’s character.
