The Devil 1

Filed under: God and gods — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 9:32 pm

I keep hearing that the best trick of the Devil is in getting people to not believe in him. Well I would think the best trick the Devil could do is to get people to believe he is a religious leader, like the Pope, or any of the big names in  Christianity. Just think of the evil done to other people in the name of God or Christ, were these the work of good god fearing people or followers of the Devil?  Not a hard question for people who think, but try to get a hard core believer to ponder the thought might be very hard. Once knew a fellow who had this answer to anything about God or Christ, “God said it, the Bible quotes it and that ends it”.  No room for thought there, to bad that fellow didn’t know that the Bible is nothing more than a collection of stories or books that the Catholic Church put together. The Bible is and was just the stories they thought would fit what they wanted the people to believe in. Nice to have the power to make your religion go just the way you want it do. Back when this was done, most people didn’t know how to read or have access to the books to choose what they may have wanted to believe in. The Catholic Church forced its dogma down the throats of the people. Believe or be excommunicated and condemned to Hell, not much of a choice. Believe or be considered a hieratic and suffer torture or burning at the stake, both good ways to get people to follow the church. And this was considered the Christian way to be? Sounds more like what a devil would come up with. Sounds like not Heaven on Earth but Hell on Earth. We may not burn people any more for their difference of opinion in religion, but we still kill and use different forms of torture. We desecrate the temples, churches and mosques of people just because they have a different beliefs than we do. Is this not the work of what a devil would want people to do? So did the Devil get his way by making people believe they were doing good with all of these evil ways in the name of some god or gods?


sad thought

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 2:56 am

Yup like I thought, mindless souls bloging their useless lives away. Not thinking just doing. Try to stimulate the mind and like children they turn their heads and look away and yawn. I was afraid I might find this when I started here, didn’t think it would happen so soon. Had hope people would really respond to my views on god and gods, but wrong. Guess I was just kidding myself again. Sort of like I did every time I thought I had found the right girl to love. Oh well, I have other ideas I want to get out to the world and will do so, even if no one reads them. At least I can say I tried.

Life ramblings

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 2:47 am

This routine of post daily is not going to be an easy routine to get into. I have never really thought my life was something special, though there are others who have thought so. Had a friend once many years who was going to write a book with me as the main character, until I did something he disaproved of. End of that story.Lets see just what have I done that could be thought of as special. Kicked out of high school for not going to high school, not sure that ever made any sense. Kicked out of the Navy for drugs back in the 60’s, nothing special there, there were thousands of us who got caught up in the drugs and war protest of the 60’s. Have to say it, I was a damn fine sailor, but a lousy navy-man. Lets see lost every job I ever had, had a wife who left me for another man. Ok before you get a the idea I was a bad person lets explain some of these things and why they happened.

To start off with I discovered after my wife left that I have a personality disorder. I am one of those people who cannot follow orders, if am told to do it I just fight back at some point. No control over that, at least less than I would like to have. So I am very independent, try to do things that don’t involve others to much. Back in my days of high school they changed the rules in my JR. year by having speech for a quarter of the semester mandatory. Needles to say I don’t like to get up in front of people, not them and not today either, So I would ditch the class or the whole day sometimes. Net result, got that kick out for not going to that speech class. I did finish some years later, for what ever that is or was worth.

The Navy, oh boy not even sure where to start with that story. Lets see, won the academic award in boot camp and wasn’t smart enough to get to go to any of the schools that were offered. Was sent to an ammunition ship doing a tour of duty off the coast of Viet Nam. First thing I see coming on board was some guys kicking shells overboard for no other reason than they were bored. So much for the safty classes about ammunition learned in boot camp. Learned not to worry about the fires that happened almost everyday, after all if the ship blows up there wont be anything left for anyone to find. There was one ammunition ship that did blow up, they did find the anchor some 11 miles or so away in the side of a mountain. Anyhow one soon learns that ones life is not worth much and really stops thinking about dying, one has to live while one is still alive. Second month on board that ship I got impaled by a forklift. Why, well the main reason was that the Naval officer in charge of my division didn’t get around to ordering non-skid material for the deck we worked on, it just had smooth paint. Add a big storm at sea which caused the ship to sway from side to side and nothing on the deck to help keep that forklift stable and it came sliding right into me. Again another lesson in why worry about dying. The pains that accident cause me to have for years didn’t seem important enough to the Navy to discharge me. My knuckles would turn white from holding on to things as the pains swept though me. Another time I asked a fellow sailor if he had turned off the power to some lights that I had to change the bulbs in, he said he had, in the heat of that area off Viet Nam ones hands sweat and the sweat driped down into the light socket of the bulb I was turning and zap I am being electrocuted. I could not turn loose of the bulb, all I could do was to try and throw that light unit which weight some few pounds hoping that the sweat would act like a lubricant and slide off my hands, luckly it did. Again my life is not seeming to be worth much in the scheme of things. Now also being surrounded by other and older sailors who drank and were doing drugs, is it any wonder I got into it? Hell I figured I could die anyday why not have some fun and take my mind off what was round me. Was that an excuse to get into drugs? Now I would no, but back then I was only 17, and not a very smart 17 either.
Now there was a time when there was a thing called the Laried directive (not sure about the spelling on that) and it stated any person discharged for drug use was to get an automatic upgrade in their discharge. I had the number on my discharge which was the one needed for that upgrade, did I get it? NO! I got to be the first person to have his discharge review at Treasure Island Naval base in Calif, and I got the admiral of that base on my review board. A note here, he was allowed to be on any other reviews after that. This admiral talked of the seas being full of dead sailors in WW II and kept asking  my lawyer who was a female why she wasn’t home having babies. Think his other board members who were part of that naval base might have not wanted to cross him? Any how, I was turned down for that upgrade. The Navy has managed to lose almost all of my records so it is just my word against, well no one now. But there is no longer any proof of my service, except my courtmartials and such. No medical records either, though the Navy did say that if my back goes out, due to that forklift thing, I could go to a VA hospital for it. Like I said, I was a very good sailor, but a bad navy-man. If not mentioned somewhere else I was awarded for saving a mans life. But no proof of that exists. Anyhow long story into short, my entire navy time was like that, Murphy’s Law ruled my Navy time from the day I went in to the day I got out. It didn’t do anything to help my views of life or the world or people. By the way, the Navy did know that I had mental proplems, one of their own psychologist made note of it in my medical records. I always wondered why no one ever bothered do to something about that. If I was unfit mentaly, they should have let me go and not stay in for another year or so. Their incompetence, And I paid the price for it. Today I am on disability for the personality disorder I had even back then and have disability card I carry when I drive because of my back from that forklift accident in 1965. No I haven’t gone near a VA hosiptal, have heard to many horror stories from to many Viet Nam vets to try it. For that matter not hearing any good stories about our vets and the VA from the war we have going on now and the last one for that matter. The Bush wars I call them.

Lost jobs? Lets just say if I have done what I have been told to do, I am not going to make myself look busy just so I wont have to do something else. I didn’t waste my time, I did my job. But bosses don’t like it when people stand around doing nothing, I was told more than once to slow down and not work so fast. Sorry it was not my nature and I paid for it by bring fired many times. I also speak my mind on things, bosses don’t like that either. It got me courtmartialed once in the Navy because I did that. A note here one of those Navy review board members was a friend of the officer I told off and he couldn’t believe that his friend would courtmartial me for that, so much for the truth. By the way I learned telling the truth in the Navy was a bad idea, I found someones wallet once and turn it in so he could have it back. I got accused of being the the who took it, I told that officer what I thought of him told him if I ever find another wallet I would throw it over board, it wan’t worth be honest.

Other jobs I have had, well I was an artist for some years making metal scluptures, worked in an art metal foundry for a good number of years, pieces I helped make are still I believe are or may be in one of the Bart stations in San Franisco, maybe they are, don’t really know as that was some 30 years ago. Of the metal scluptures I made I did ship some them around the world. So my art work was international, sounds good doesn’t it? Really only a few made it out of the country. Some used to and may still hang in some of the big office buildings in Los Angeles. Even had some in the big decorating places in Beverly Hill, Calif. But the market for metal scluptures stopped and I needed to make money and moved on. Worked for a big laser company for awhile as an applications engineer, until I told my boss off about the way he was running the lab and his ideas on the way to do things and treat customers. Ended up mining for gold in Northern California for some 15 years. Had my own mining claims, didn’t get rich, but made enough to make it pay for irself as something to do. Had to quit thought. Needed by-pass heart surgery and for some unknown reason it caused me to become overly sensitive to heat and cold. They say everybody who has had it has some unknown change in their life, no one knows why this happens, it just does. For me like I said it was the way I delt with the heat and the cold. Where I mined it got into the 100’s in the summer and it seemed we only had two seasons so no more mining during the summer months, Winter being our other season now was to cold for me, I was stuck indoors almost all year, Can’t do gold minning like that. And that change is still with me after some 12 years, I still cannot handle the heat or the cold, stuck having to have temps between 70 and 75 Degrees. I hate it. But when the blood begins to feel like it is boiling and the tingles start in my neck, I say ok I quit, I will go indoors. And I do start to get very cold when it gets below 70, got to find a warm spot or I start to shiver. What fun life is sometimes. Oh well I could be dead I guess, Hell it might be a better deal, but who knows.

Well think I got carried away with routines or not routines, that hot and cold thing is a bad routine, but I deal with it as I have too. Hope any who read this enjoyed the ramblings. Maybe I will ramble some more tomorrow, check in and see.

Peoples thoughts

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 5:56 pm

Well I can see from the way my clicks have dropped that not many of of you out there are interested in god and gods and religius ideas. Just a bunch of non thinkers, the kind I am writing about I guess. Don’t think, don’t ask questions, don’t rock the boat. Poems about love and pain you like, why is that I wonder? Oh well, I have always known that you can’t change a sheep into something else. The mindless will stay the mindless and go to their graves without a real thought ever having been thought. Congratulations, you have made your religious leaders very proud. They can keep their jobs for awhile longer. Sad though, I had hoped that in this day and age there might some who were learning the truth about the world.

god and killing

Filed under: God and gods — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 9:50 pm

Thou shall not kill. Turn the other cheek. An old and new testament ideas. But what good are they? Israel fought a war killing people to get a country for themselves, so much for Thou shall not kill. The Catholic church fought several wars against the Muslims in the crusades, so much for for Thou shall not kill and Turn the other cheek. Europe in the dark and middle ages was always at war with each other and they were Christian countries, again so much for those two rules of their religion. The hypocrisy of religion should be enough for people to realize that the words and beliefs mean nothing. If the rules set forth cannot be followed by the leaders, why should anyone follow those leaders? Why would anyone want to follow a leader who lies? Only mindless sheep would could be led. Which is what religious leaders want. Don’t question, just follow. Be a lamb in my flock and I will led you where I want you to go.

I find it hard to believe that there are so many mindless people in the world. Religions seem to really want no one to think or question. Are the leaders of Religions afraid that if their flocks think and question they will lose their power over them? If they lose their power, what will they do for a living then? People with power are always afraid of losing that power, it is what makes them and without it they are nothing. Most will do just about anything to keep their power and quite a few have as history shows. Still in spite of history being there for us to learn from, people keep doing the same old things over and over again. Religion being one of the best at keeping people ignorant and not letting its followers learn new ideas and ways of living with others in this world.

Today we as a country are fighting a religious war and the little minded people keep it going at street level. Just why should you hate another just they don’t believe as you do? I bet if you ask these haters why, they really could not give a good answer. Why, because they haven’t really thought about what it is they think. They just do like sheep being led. And all they really do is keep the world and their hometowns from knowing peace. To kill in the name of a god, why can’t an all powerful god do its own killing?  Because there is no god, or no god who would really want us to kill each other. No religion has killing others in it as the thing to be done. So there is no real justification for killing in a gods name. But mankind seems to need to kill and will find any reason it can to justify that need. After all if you kill all of those who disagree with you, you end up being right, as might makes right, right?

Thought 1

A wondering thought. Just why do the spamers think I want to buy the little blue pill? I am getting adds for it just about everyday. It is a waste of my time to keep deleting them. So if any of you pill pusher happen to see this, please stop. I will never buy any from you. Nor I guess will most of the people bloging here. Guess we need wordpress to find a way to delete these spamers from the list of people who can publish here. Lets start a campaign to get wordpress to find a way to keep us safe from the pill pushers! If I knew how to use that poll button I see here, I would start a poll  on this subject. If anyone can tell me how, I will try it.

god evolves

Ok take the old testament, we have a jealous god, vengeful and almost just plain mean to any who wont do what he wants. This is the Jewish god of old.  Still got to wonder how the first two people did wrong and the the first two kids did wrong and the world fills with wrong thinking people, even after god kills almost every human on Earth with a flood and the ones who popluate the world after that also do wrong again. Somehow god did not make his creation right it would seem. So after giving up and saying he wont kill us all again with another flood, he for some reason evolves into a loving god who forgives all by having his son killed by a slow tortuous death. Hell of a way to get people to follow the new idea. Lets kill just one more painfully and then we will not to that anymore. Does anyone really think that word of mouth is the best way to spread a new religion? Well it did work very well, I guess. But still to this day we have people who wanted a different message than the one Christ put forth, so alongs come Muhammad and another version of god and what god wants is born. We have another evloution of god, strange how mankind keeps making the idea of a god fit just what they want. In every religion god is as mankind  thinks he should be. God just keeps evolving to fit everybody, to bad people can’t evolve to fit everybody.

So now we have three religions that all believe in the same one god. Or at least the same basic one god and we have hatred between the different religions who want to believe that their version is the right and only true religion. And they will kill to prove it is true, fight wars over the so called truth. Hell even within each religion they cannot get one real version that they will all agree on. So just why would one single god let so many different version of itself exist? If it really wanted people to know the truth it would let all mankind know at once and put a stop to all the fighting and killing it its name. Unless of course it enjoys the fighting and killing. Making the whole world a joke for its amusement. Not a hard thought to have seeing what has and is going on in the world. But that is not the thought I came here to present.

Back to peoples views of god and gods. Seems most people have a very narrow space in which their gods exists, no room for other views. Why do they think that their view is right and all others are wrong? Would a god who gave the choice of free will to its creation really be mad if the people used what god gave them? Would it not be against god to not use that free will and go where it led them? After all if we are supposed to be made in gods image and I dont think that includes the bodies we have (if god is a male entity, what use would he have for sexual organs if there is only one of him?)  but the mind we have is that image. An all knowing god would expect its creation to grow and learn. After all people say we are his children, do we not expect our children to grow and learn? Should we expect less of a god than we do of ourselves? It would seem that god and gods are always just the what the narrow minded people make them to be. Not the other way around. God and gods are make in the image of mankind. It would seem a simple thought to make to me. I made it, why cannot others do the same. Why can’t all mankind make this same simple thought and out grow their fairytale stories? Why because mankind is still thinking and behaving like children and need their bogeyman to keep them in line. Be bad and the bogyman will get you. God and gods are just that, bogymen. Do wrong in gods eye and you will go to Hell. God and gods were created by simple minded people back mankind did not what the world was or how it worked, We do now, so now is the time to evolve god and gods into the history books that tell of what we as people belived in the old days. Just like we do and did with all the old god and gods we once had all over the world.

Just start thinking and it all falls into place. It is not a hard concept to follow. It just take some bravey to say no, I will not blindly follow without thinking. I am not a sheep, I am a human being and have a mind and I will use it. Do you have a mind? Do you use it or are you one of the sheep who doesn’t need to think and be a grown up?

a god mistake?

Filed under: God and gods — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 12:54 am

Ok lets look at Cain and Able. The first children in the world. Here we have a case of jealousy that ends in death. Well god has jealous feelings and man was made in the image of god so if Cain was being like god in his feelings where is it wrong to be god like. We can’t have a god who says “Do as I say, not as I do”, it just wouldn’t be fair. But then god never is fair.  A fair god would not punish someones children unto the 3rd, 4th or 5th generation for something done by a parent. Kind of hard to want to worship a god if you were born to be punished for something you didn’t do. We as a people today would not allow a parent to act this way with children. But I wander off the subject of Cain and Able. So god favors Able, didn’t god think that this would make Cain jealous? Once again the all knowing didn’t know, or it was his plan to have Cain kill Able? If so Cain did what he was supposed to do, and if you do what god wants, how can you be in trouble for it?

People are always saying that god has called someone who has been killed. So if that soul was called to god, is the killer a bad person for sending the called one to god? Hard to decide just what is right and wrong in looking at the will of god this way. After all god has killed lots of people, the Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah just to name two mass killings. Does that make god a psychopathic mass murderer? After all if any person did those things we would put them in jail or execute them. Again “Do as I say, not as I do” kind of thing. It is alright for a god to kill but not his followers. A double standard, no wonder man (not mankind, well mankind too) has one. Just think of all the preachers and priest who do just what they preach against. Just how are the people to follow when their god and religious leaders do not follow the so called rules?

Back to Cain who leaves his parents and go to Nod where he knew his wife. Ok not the first to ask this question nor will I be the last, but just where did the wife come from. If there are other people where did they come from? One of them other gods god is jealous of bring them forth like god did with Adam and Eve? God created Adam and Eve, no one else. Adam and Eve had only two children or at least the bible mentions no others. One cannot believe the story of Genesis hook line and sinker. Any person with a basic thought pattern should have said NO this is not a real thing. Is life so scary to people that they need this fairytale  in order to keep them going in this world? Are we still as dumb as the cavemen who didn’t know their world, yet?

Have we not learned enough about how the world works and its wonders to know the truth when it is right in front of us? Or are too many people just like the priest during the darkages and will not let any truth be heard because it would take away their belief system?  I see a billboard every time I come home from town that asks “Are they making a monkey out of you?”. I have to ask why is it up there, do they really think that will make people change their minds? Also I want to know do they (the ones who put up the billboard)  really want to be made into sheep? After all monkeys at least seem to think and sheep do not. But that is what religous leaders want, non thinking followers. After all do they not call their followers a flock and themselves sheperds? Sheep,strange term to use, think of fleecing, not only for wool but the word is also used to describe taking money from people and preachers seem to do a lot of that.

Well enough ideas to think about for today.

god was thinking?

Filed under: God and gods, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 9:29 pm

In the beginning we are supposed to have just people, Adam and Eve. Inocent people who know no evil stuff. Sounds good doesn’t it. But I have a question or two about this good and evil stuff. Where did evil come from if there was only god around? How can there be good or evil if there is only one thing in the universe? Who was to judge if anything was good or evil? Did god judge itself? And how would it decide what was good or evil if there was nothing around to do good or evil with? Any how back to Adam and Eve, who are living in the Garden of Eden, where they needed for nothing it seems. Now why did god place a tree of knowledge in the garden and tell them not to eat of it? We as adults know that if you tell a child not to something, they will do it. God didn’t know this? The first two people who knew nothing about right and wrong are given a temptation by an supposedly all knowing god who ought to have know better in the first place and what happens? Of course they did what they weren’t supposed to do. Who really is at fault here? If you don’t want a child to mess with something, don’t put it where they can get to it. Did god need to put that tree in the garden? I think not. Just think what might have happened if it wasn’t there. A world full of naked happy people. Of couse I have to wonder if the garden would have been big enough to hold a world full of people. And that thought I have never heard anyone ever wonder about.  So what do you think, was god wrong to place that tree in the garden? Did the all knowing god know what would happen? If there is a plan for mankind according to many, then it was supposed to happen. If was supposed to happen why punish Adam and Eve for doing what was planned? Seems like they did just what god wanted, shouldn’t they have been rewarded for following the plan? And if there wasn’t a plan, couldn’t god just have started over and do it right the second time? If god is all knowing, just how did god make a mistake in the first place? So many questions? No answers. Again I have to wonder just how come so many people believe in this story as being true.

Knowing what we know about the breeding of animals, we know that if the same two animals and their off spring keep inbreeding the aminals will get to weak to support a viable stock. Mankind is an animal, so if it wont work for the rest of the animal world, it wont and doesn’t work for mankind and yet so many people still believe we started from Adam and Eve. Again a knowing god would have know this, but didn’t seem to know did it?  I will leave you with that thought for now.

Gods? Well according to the Bible there are if you believe it to be word of God. In the Ten commandments one of them is “You shall have no other gods before me”. Ok got to ask, what other gods? If there is only one god, you can’t have other gods. If there are other gods, you can’t have one god. Simple thought, not hardly even logic, yet if a God tells you, you can’t have others, guess that god knows what he/she/it is talking about and that is OTHER GODS.

Also in the Ten Commandments, and I will make it a short version, “You shall not make any graven images—-for I the Lord your God am a jealous God—“. Ok you get the idea, now why should or would a single god need to get jealous? What is there to get jealous of?  Sounds a little insecure to me. Well maybe God is insecure, after all there are them others gods you can’t have before Him. Mankind out grew them so called other gods, Odin, Ball and more that I cannot think of at the moment, when will mankind out grow this one god idea?

Gee we will still have enough to hate and kill each other with without religion being here. Hell we got nationalism, politics, racism,  aren’t these enough for us?  I will get into those subjects at other time.
