Worry

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 7:59 pm

Have always felt that to worry was and is a waste of time. But today I am uneasy as my wife who just had eye surgery last week is having problems. Yesterday when the stitch was removed, it didn’t come out as it should have and caused a problem, so today she must go back in for more surgery on that eye. Whether I worry or not, the out come will be the same. But still, it bothers me to want the best for her and knowing that nothing I do or want makes any difference.

To me worry is the cause of most of the illness we have in this country. Worry is stress and stress kills the mind and body. The body is or ought to be a finely tuned machine, start stressing that machine and parts start to brake down. Always loved that Adel Davis, a health nut about eating right to keep from getting cancer and such, died from cancer. Yule Kippens,(not sure how that name is spelled)  another health nut who said you could eat pine nuts all the time on TV also died from cancer. One of the Kellogg’s brothers, the one who was a health nut died I think from a heart attack. So much for being healthy. There are people who drink and smoke everyday of their lives and live to be a hundred, others walk out from passing a physcial with flying colors and die outside the doctors office.  I believe that the stress of worrying about keeping from getting cancer is what caused the cancer of those health nuts.

My sister is an ex-smoker and I never hear the end of her telling me Ishould quit. Our mother died from lung cancer, but she had quit smoking some 20 years or so before, so much for being healthier by quiting. Some say if it is in the genes you will get it. That is where worry and stress come into picture for me. When it shows up, you can stop worrying, there is nothing to worry about anymore, I guess one could start worry about how soon one might die though. But at least one doesn’t have to worry about getting cancer any more.

Worry can also go un-noticed in ones life. The day I told my brother that he had out lived our father, you could see the tension drop right out of his face and body. I don’t think he was even aware that he had that worry in him. I sure didn’t know it. But worry and tension can hide within and eat away at the life force of a person. So long ago I quit worrying about things as best I could. What happens will happen. I always hope for the best, expect the worst and accept what happens. Can’t really say it could have been worse, cause it wasn’t, can’t say it could have been better cause it wasn’t, it is as it is.

Have always wondered about those who pray to a god for the best out come and then don’t get it. If it goes right for them they can say a god answered their prayers, but what reason can they have for a god not answering that prayer? Does god think they are not worthy? Is it the plan for god to be taking a soul into heaven despite what the person or people praying want? God moves in mysterious ways is just a why of saying one doesn’t know and one can keep believing any how. Of course if one puts the out come in a gods hands, one need not worry about it, that at least is good for ones health I’d say. So I have found one good reason for the belief in a god.

One can fall from a three story building and live, one can fall off a foot stool and die, no rhyme or reason to it. When ones number is up, that is it. But I have to wonder about that. I had by-pass surgery some 11 years ago, so the question is, did I cheat death by doing that? Am I living on borrowed time? Considering the over all out come, I am not sure that death might not have been a better deal for me. Sure I have gotten to spend these many years with the woman I love, but the side effect I have to live with is mean to me. Before I had the surgery, I could handle the heat and cold of this world, now I cannot. I am trapped indoors most of the time because it is too hot or too cold for me to go out and do the things I used to do and still want to do. Alive, but a prisoner from living life, a fair trade? I had a choice at the time before the surgery. Spend what time the doctors thought I had left with my love or chance death on the table and lose that time, or do the surgery and have years with my love or lose her by dieing on the table. I tease my love with that, the old Chinese saying that if you save a persons life, you are responsible for that life. I did the operation because she wanted me to do it, she was willing to gamble my life away for a chance that she would have more years with me. Now to make this story a little more interesting, the time frame for this decision was less than 12 hours, the doctors didn’t I would last the night if didn’t have the surgery the next morning, I had a nurse with me all night just in case. How did I feel at the time, well I felt just fine, I couldn’t have said I had a problem in the world, no pain, no heart attacks, no nothing really to say I was about to die. But, I did have one completely closed main artery to the heart and one main 95% blocked off, I didn’t mess around with all of the little ones, just 2 of the 3 main ones. Anyhow, with that being the case, that is why the doctors thought I could go at any second, and bumped two people out of the way so I could have that surgery first the next morning.

Worry was not a part of that whole deal, either I live or I die, either way was alright with me once I decided to do it. Death does not scare me, It will be the end of my questions about ????? About what? Why we are here, is there a god or gods? Is there a point to all of this? I can only hope it might give me the answers, but no one knows, do they? Another reason for one not to worry, it really doesn’t really matter what is next, we have to go anyway, there is no choice about that. Sooner or later we will find out what’s on the other side of life. I am at this point not in a hurry to get there, I am still curious about what the human race will do next. I hope to see some growth in the mind set of mankind, but I doubt it. Still watching the History and Discovery Channels on TV gives me hope that man might yet grow up, for they do have shows about life and ask the questions that I ask. Be nice if they could really come up with some answers though.

A foot note here, just heard that my wife’s second eye surgery went just fine. So no “worry” there, it went as it went, lucky it was good, glad it was good too.

The fair sex?

Women are the fair sex? Women are the weaker sex? Women are the dumber sex? Just where did these ideas ever come from? Once upon a time, before men figured out that they were the reason women had children, women were the most important members of primitive tribes. Once the men got the idea that it was themselves alone who could father a child and know it was their own child, the importance of the woman fell. In order to make sure the child born was yours, one had to keep his female from being able to mate with any other male. Thus the idea of ownership of women by males. Seeing how any male could bring forth a child with any female, it made the male the now important one. One could only carry on the lineage through the male seed. The female now became the second sex, the one who really didn’t matter, for the male could continue his line with any female.

Today we know that more male children are born than females, but females survive better. For centuries males died earlier than females, of course now that may not be quite so true. The stress of life is much more equal now. Men are usually  much stronger than women when it come s to physical strength, so the label of the weaker sex comes into being. But it is known that women have a higher pain tolerance than men, as it is said, if men had to bare the children, the human race would die out. Men withstand pain by being macho about it. Women do it naturally.

Dumb women, just can’t understand the world, let us men who do run it. Right! Just another way men have tried to keep the female as the second sex in this world. Even in religion, women are considered less than men. Why? It gives validity to what men do. God made man first, so man is the most important. If god made man in his image, then god must be a male.  But why does a god who is the only god have to have a sexual identity? What point is having a male god if there is no female for him? If a god impregnates one of his children, is he a sexual deviant?  Any way, keeping women ignorant helps keep them in their place.

But why did  man have to make women second class people? Because deep down man knows he is just a weird copy of the female. The nipples thing, men have them but don’t need them, so why are they there? Always thought the creation story would have made more sense if Adam was made from Eve’s rib, that would at least account for the nipple thing in some way. Men know that females drive them crazy, they have to have one or more than one. It is women who give men their driving force to do things in the world.Women want the best provider to keep themselves and their children alive and well, so the man must do that if he wants a woman at his side. I think men are ashamed of their need for women and take it out on them for making them do things. I some times think that rape is just an extension of that feeling, the need to prove that the male is more important, the dominant one of the species. It is part of the need to keep the female in her place.

When it comes to listening to the way men talk and the way women talk, it is the female is who much more open, more vicious in comments about other people, more open about sexual feelings. Hell, in every way women are just more than men. Women communicate better than men, part of the reason they tend to be the child rears in most all of the animal kingdom, plus they are the ones who nurture the children. Any male can father a child, but only a mother can really raise one.

Well enough of my ramblings. The end idea is that I think man is the weaker and the second sex of the world, not woman. I have to wonder why it took so long for women to get the vote in this country, wonder why it is alright for men to have as much sex as they can get and women are labeled bad for the same feelings, the double standard. Why the country had to vote for women getting as much pay as men for the same job? How long is it going to take for humankind to grow up and see the world as it really is? A very long time I am afraid, as long as we have religions that keep women in a second class position. It is hard to argue with what people see as a gods plan, for who wants to argue with their god? After all the Bible says god said to Eve, “he shall rule over you” and god blamed Eve for mans exit from Eden, so do men still believe it. Even with the first so called people, it was woman who made man do things. Without the female, men have no reason to be. True it is the same for women, for without men they have no reason to be.

A strange after thought. There is a species of fish, that when dominant male dies, the dominant female turns into a male to take it place. Female into male, just the way I think it happened way back in the dawn of life on this world.

Genesis 1 & 2

Filed under: God and gods — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 8:12 pm

Watched a show on the History Channel lat night about Genesis in the Bible. It mostly covered chapters 1 and 2. Why is it that the stuff I write about seems to covered on TV, but doesn’t really get any response in here? Do not any of you out there watch these kind of shows on the History Channel? If the subject of religion is good enough to be questionedon TV, why not here? Oh well, to the subject at hand.

The biggest thing about last nights was why are chapter 1 and 2 telling a different story about the time line of creation? And why is it that people who believe the story do not have a problem with the two different stories? Can’t say I heard a good answer from the people who gave their ideas about it. So was man made on the 6th day after all the rest was done, or were all the things alive made after Adam was made? The Bible says both happened, but which is it? It has to be one way or the other. And just when was Eve created? Also on the 6th day with Adam or later as an after thought? Why create male and female animals but not a female human? Wouldn’t Adam have gotten horny watching all the animals mating and him with the equipment to mate but no female to mate with? No wonder he got lonely.

The idea was put forth that Eve was the second human female made. Seeing how god created male and female humans at the same time in chapter 1 and her name was Lilith. I love the way people always try to make things up to fit the need for things to make sense. But I do not understand how when face with truth, people still refuse to change their minds. When faced with contradictions that cancel each other out, how can one still believe in the story of creation as presented in the Bible? If god gave us brains to use, why not use them? Is it so hard to believe that the Bible creation story is really any different than any other creation story from the old days of mankind? One has got to remember when all of these stories were made, so far in the past when man had no idea as to what was happening in the world he lived in. To keep believing in a story that has the world and life on it only being some 6,000 years old, come on, get real. To believe that the creatures that live on the earth today were the creatures god made at the creation and deny all of the proof of the past life we have found, really is beyond my comprehension as a human being.

Pain of belief

Just posted  at blogher and got to thinking about what I had to say about christian hypocrisies and a person I knew many years ago who went to therapy because she had big problems with her faith and what she felt and wanted to do. Now this young woman was brought up as a Catholic and believed all of the things she felt and wanted to do would condemn her to Hell. The world in the late 60’s and early 70’s was the time of hippies and free love and free thought, time to question everything there was about the life we were living. She wanted to be free to partake of this new world, but she felt so bad every time she did that it was driving her crazy with guilt. I always thought one was supposed to feel good about believing in a god, but here was just one case where belief caused pain. I know there are many more people like her out there in the world, for I have met many, shall we call them ex-catholics, who gave up that belief system for one reason or another. Most did not stop believing in a god, just the one the Catholics were pushing. I am glad to say that I keep hearing little tidbits that the Catholic Church is starting to open up its thought pattern about the world.

I just had a thought on the pain of belief. I knew my mother for 40 years and I never knew what she believed about god or gods, the subject never came up that I can remember. But when I joined the Navy at 17 and she had to sign the papers saying I could, she put down that my religion was one of the christian faiths. I do not remember which one, but I did ask her why she did that. She said that it just seemed like a good idea so no one would bother me about our lack of religion. I guess she did not want me to feel any pain of religion by not having any. Strange that while in boot-camp, going to religious services was mandatory for all. I wonder if I had had no religion on my papers if I could have gotten out of it? As it was, by taking the watch for others who wanted to go, I only had to go twice in the 3 months I was there. Odd as to why I remember that. I guess my personality disorder was active then and (hell it was from birth really) getting out of having to something I did not want to do meant something to me.

I do not know what happened with the young woman I was talking about, I hope she resolved her problems and lived a happy life one way or another. But I brought it up to show that having faith in the fairytale of god and gods is not always a good thing for some people.

Church

When I was 5 years old,I went to church for the first time with some neighbors children. I sat though the long sermon and then went to the Sunday school with my friends. When I left that day,  I knew it was all a big lie. A story made up but didn’t know why it so, I just knew it was. Now some 56 years later I am trying to tell people the reasons why I do not believe the story. And I did spend many years checking out this religious thing that people have. With the information available out there in the world, I am amazed that anyone still believes in any religion what so ever. We might as well still be believing that the world is flat. And yet every Sunday people still go to the church of their choice and keep believing in the same old story. I just keep wondering why? Just what proof do people need to see the truth of the world? How hard can it be to turn ones mind on? I guess believers are like children who hide their eyes and believe they can not be seen just because they can’t see others that way.

Sad state of affairs if you ask me. Every year people teach their young children to believe in a fairytale and most likely tell them they will go to Hell if they do not believe. And they must believe as the parents do, not as others do. We keep teaching our young hate, fear, prejudice, and so many bad things about people who do not believe as we do, do not live as we do, who do not think like we do or look like we do. And by WE  I mean each and every group out there in the world who has a belief system that says they are the chosen or best people for whatever reason they pick. And the saddest part of it to me is that main religions in the world all come from the same place, which says we all started from just two people, so we are cousins, all equal, all the same. Yet why does this not seem to matter any more? Did god some how split into many different gods? With the amount of different religions and sects within those religions, it would seem that was what happened. Have got to wonder just what Christ and Mohammed would think about the churchs that carry on their teachings in this day and age. I think they would not be happy with what is going on.

I have read the Koran and what I see happening with the Muslims is not what I thought the Koran said to be doing. I am talking about the jihad types, not the others. I have read the the New Testament and have to wonder just where and when did Christians leave the path he taught? Why is it that with evey good thing that comes along and then gets a following, the leaders always change it to suit their own needs and ideas? Once many years ago I was into yoga and sort of followed a yogie fellow. He was dead by the time I started to learn his ideas, but was going to seminars taught by his group of followers. I noticed that all of the followers in his group had suits on under their orange robes, not giving up the worldly possions is what I saw. The yogie also taught his ideas for free, yet here Iwas having to pay to learn, and if I wanted the real inside stuff, I couldn’t learn it unless I paid through the nose for it. It was as I call it now, enlightenment through money, of, no payee, no learnee. I won’t call this group a church, but it is not really any different. if you want to move up in your church, just pay out your money and you will rise. Money, the root of all evil, yet every church asks you for some, give till it hurts I have heard said. Why would a god need money? Gods do not, only churches do.

A gods joke?

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 12:01 am

Well today I wonder about the difference between men and women and their sexual peaks. If a male is over at 18 or so as they say and woman doesn’t hit hers until after 30, then in this christian world the sexes are screwed. We can’t be having older women doing the young men, nor is it allowed for older men to be with young women, this is our code from the christian world. So god must have be having a real laugh at the frustration of humans trying to enjoy themselves. Now if we went by the nature of life the way it seems it was meant to be, we would have the older experienced women teaching the young men how to be good lovers, and when they pass their peak they would know how to teach the young women to be good lovers so when they get older the cycle continues. Sounds like a win, win situation for both men and women.

Now I am not saying we should be doing this, I am just wondering why it works the way it does. After all once upon a time most men died very young and the women out lived them. Maybe nature made the sex drives to match that. If all things in nature have a reason, there has to be one for the different sexual peaks in humans. If a god made us to be like this, then why are going against the nature god gave us? So many questions about the way we live our lives and the way nature made us to be.

Here is a thought for you all. Mankind  is a part of the animal kingdom, males in the animal kingdom live for almost just one purpose, to have sex with females and continue the species. That is the real job of males in this world. So is it any wonder that human males are always trying to mate with every female they can? They are just following the plan nature made for them. Females in the animal kingdom quite often mate with different males just to insure that when a new male leader comes along he wont kill her young, because he wont know if the young are his or not. Smart thing for females if you ask me. After all for the most part, it is the female who raises the young of their kind.

Back to men going after all the females he can. This is such a simple answer as to why men act as they do. It would be nice if women understood this and not always asking why do they do it. Not saying this the way it ought to be, just giving one reason why it is so. The need to procreate is what drives the world we live in, from the single celled creatures all the way up the food chain to us as humans. And seeing how god or nature made human females always ready to have children and not be seasonal like lots of other animals, the male is always ready to do his best for mankind and try to continue the species. Besides the more children he spreads around, the better the chance that humans will survive. Nature again making that rule or god did, at least in the rest of the animal kingdom it is the rule.

Another thought along this line, I once read where someone once decided that the reason women have boobs and asses that  stick out is so men could see them from a distance and know what they were. After all men are visual creatures, they tend to want what they see and the women were made to get their attention. Of course if the female came first, (the nipple thing from my other post), then men were made so they would attracted to the way the female was built. That idea I read about put forth the idea that females with big boobs and asses got more males than ones without them,and so these are the genes that got passed on that made it. Sounds good to me, True? I do not know. But it does make sense. Remember folks, truth is stranger than fiction.

Men and Women

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 10:20 pm

Ever wonder why men have nipples? What use are they? Got to think that once upon a time there was just one sex and that sex was female. During the evolution of mammals, I guess it needed another sex to make it a viable life form. So if you start with the female and change it ever so slightly you get the male. Seems likely to me that it happened this way. No I have done no research on this, it is just a thought I had on why men have nipples.

Body hair, oh boy that is a fun thing, not! At least from where I am at. Why do I need to be growing hair on my ears? Why do I need to be growing what could become a second mustache out of my nose?  Hair growing on my nose, come on. My facial hair seems to be growing together all over my face, at this rate by the time reach 90 (if I do) I will lose my face behind the hair. And why do older women need to start growing mustaches and beards? Sorry thing for the fair sex to have to put up with. This is part of a gods plan for human kind? Mean joke if you ask me.  Why cause men to start turning into women and women into men?

Well I guess if all started out as one sex, it makes sense that if we live long enough, we sort of go back to being that one sex at death. If a god made a man first, what was the point of the nipple on him first? Just what was he going to do with them? Sorry keep slipping back into god and gods all of the time, but it does permeate all parts of our life and keeps getting in the way learning what life is all about. Got wonder just how much about the world we might know by now if religion hadn’t kept us in the dark for so long. If it still wasn’t trying to keep us in the dark now.

Borders

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 9:14 pm

Just what is a border? For some it is the imaginary line that separates countries. I say imaginary because there is nothing there to show where one country starts and another one ends. Yet we seem to believe that by being one side or the other of these imaginary lines that we are better than those on the other side of it. Unless you live on and island which does have a real border around it you are living in imaginary countries. Sure the world has agreed on where these imaginary lines are, but at what price were these borders made. And just why would one think by living in of these imaginary countries that they are better than the ones on the other side of the line? I guess it all goes back to people thinking that they alone are the chosen ones of the imaginary god they made up and therefore are the best there is.

Has always seemed strange to me that this concept goes all the way down to the streets we live on. My block is better than your block. The end results being the gangs we have all over the country thinking that their street gang is better than the one one on the next block and being willing to kill to prove it. What little minds humans have. Grown up human-beings acting like little children, when will it all end? I do blame religion for this happening in the world. After all if your god says you are the chosen people you are going to let the other people know that you are better than they are and you alone are right so everything the others do is wrong and bad. And you say this to the others who believe the same thing about themselves, just what is going to happen? Just like children they start to fight to prove who is really the best. Each believing that their god will favor them and of course the winner is always right for might makes right. If I beat you then I must be better, what a thought. Like playing king of the hill, who ever ends up on top is the winner.

Think about America. All men are created equal, right sure they are! It took this country a long time to try and make that statement true and even then it was not put into practice. To this day we still have the problem of men being equal, even with the president we now have in office, all men are not being treated as equals. All men are equal, but what about women? How long did it take for them to get the right to vote and have they ever gotten fair pay for the same work men do? Sure we passed a law to make it so, but law and practice are not the same thing. Even here we have made borders between things. And why you might ask? Well back to that imaginary god again. Yup lets see how that went, god made Adam, so man is first and most important. A note here, in the Holy Bible I happen to have in front of me it does not say that Eve was made from the rib of Adam, though this the story I grew up hearing, makes you wonder just what is the true religion when it changes with each sect making up the story as they want it be. Well going on with the rib story, we have woman be a lesser part of the story, an after thought even. As I remember the story, god saw that Adam was lonely and god decide that Adam needed a mate, gee guess watching all the animals in the world having one, I would want one too. After all what was the point of have a male sex organ if Adam had no one to use it with? Of course woman being less than man, it would have to the female who ate of the so called apple, after all a man wouldn’t do any wrong unless he was tempted by a woman, would he? Here’s a thought for you, god didn’t give us brains to really think with, it was Eve. Eve gave us knowledge, not god. Why would a god not want his children to know things?  What border was god afraid of that humans should know things? Without knowledge, mankind would have been no better than the rest of the animal kingdom.

So the god of our story starts us out with the I am better than you idea. His creations just keep up the idea, causing the first murder to happen, Cain killing Able so Able couldn’t be better than him or more favored. If the old testament is to believed, I am not sure being the chosen of god was a good thing. All the suffering the Jews went through as the chosen people just doesn’t seem to fair to me for a chosen people. So where and when did the idea of being better than others really come into practice? One just has to look at all of the religions starting points, there you will find that each of them sort of all say that their god created them first as the chosen ones. And I do mean all religions, even going back in time to the ones not in use today. Again I ask just why does mankind think they are so special? Why did they think the world was made for them? Why would mankind in this day and age still believe what they do about the gods?

When mankind grows up, borders will no longer be needed. No imaginary lines will be needed to separate us from each other. We need to get rid of the gods, get rid of the borders. One nation under god? What god is that? Whose god is that? Which god should we choose? Can’t have equality until that issue is resolved and the only real solution is no god at all. Can’t fight over what doesn’t exist, can we? When people realize that where they live is not really any better than any other place, we just might stop thinking our place is better and fighting to prove it. But having people who refuse to see the truth of the world will always hold us back from being able to grow up. The thought of me being better than you goes into almost every facet of our lives, rich people are better than poor people, upland people are better than lowland people, tall people are better than short people, jocks are better than (todays term) nerds. Strange that last one is, saying that having brains to think with is not cool, just another way of people wanting to keep from using their brains and think! Why is the world afraid of thinking and growing? Because the children are afraid of pissing off their so called Father of a god! I have to ask, what was the point of giving mankind the big brain to use if it was not meant to be used? Did the gods want to keep people ignorant just so they could on top? Just like so many leaders of this world do. World leaders have always wanted to keep the people ignorant of what is really happening, because when the people find out the truth, the leaders lose their jobs. Just look at your news and you see it happening everyday.

So lets grow up people and put and end to all of these borders we have. Or are you afraid to cross those borders?

Hell?

Filed under: God and gods — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 10:42 pm

Just when did god create hell? It was not in the beginning, just heaven and the earth were according to Genesis. Just where was god if there was no heaven? After all we are taught that is where god is, so again where was god before he has a place to call home? And why does there have to be place we call hell? God wasn’t good enough in creating all his things and needed a place to put the rejects? Satan, I am guessing that god made the angels or were they the other gods god was jealous of? Any how if god made the angels, how come his best creations or his first I guess rebelled against him? Seems god made a mistake here, the people he created also seem to keep rebelling, another mistake, guess we do need a hell to put these rejects in, there are so many of them. Of course regarding the people sent to hell, just how many is god sending as opposed to how many are sent by each different sect of gods religions. After all I believe my way and of course I am right so you all are going to hell if you disagree, right? Guess we are all going to hell, after all we are all right so all others are wrong and god will punish all wrong thinkers. What arrogance mankind has why must every group think they are the best there is? Why would any group be better than any other? If a god made us all, then all are equal and the same. Is that not what is meant by all are equal in the eyes of god? If all are equal then all are going some sort of hell, for no person is perfect. Most of the ideas of hell come from Dante book, people just love to believe the worst without ever checking the facts of truth. Judge not least you be judged, which is what people do all the time, never really thinking of what may or may not be true. So more people for the hell they believe in. Would a truly loving and forgiving god really send his people to such a place? Just because there are people who mistreat children, must the god and gods we made up do the same? I once asked religious leader to show me just where the story of devil was in the bible, he wouldn’t or couldn’t do it, I have always wondered why? Guess he didn’t want his belief questioned. Lost a girl friend once because I didn’t believe in her god, yet she knew nothing about the Bible and what was really in it, she was one of those who believe without knowing why and never questioned the idea at all.

So which came first, Hell or Satan? If Satan was a good angel in the beginning, there was no need for a Hell. If the all knowing god new Satan was going to rebel and had Hell waiting, well why wait, just create hell with Satan already in it. But then why create evil at all? But god created man in “OUR image, after OUR likeness” which tells me that there are more than one god around, which also makes one think that the gods were also good and evil to start with. “Behold the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil”, Us, again gods are mentioned. Gods knowing good and evil, why would gods  need to be good or evil? Makes the gods sound like they are just normal people after all, gee maybe that’s why the gods were made in mans image, cause they were made up by mankind. The arrogant people who think they are the best thing on this world, the ones who thought the whole universe was made just for them. The ones who believed the Sun revolved around the Earth, the Earth their god made just for them. And these people are the ones who thought the earth was flat and would punish any who said different, are the ones we still choose to believe when the idea of a god is being taught.  Maybe we need that Hell after all, for we need a place to put the children who refuse to grow up and learn the truth of the world.

The Devil 1

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?
