Elementary Logic


In the beginning Mother mated with Father and created me, the individual who writes these very words. I am merely the cause of what St.Paul describes as a base ritual, an act deplored by the Great Creator of this very same act. With this knowledge I realize that, according to the Christian paradigm, my life is the effect of a rebellion against God, and that if my Mother was a good Christian I would not exist. This begs the question of whether I myself should devote my life to a god that had to be disobeyed in order for me to live. Shouldn’t I, a scion of a veritable ‘Fuck You’ to God, give my longest finger to this divine magistrate?

Descartes said, “Cogito ergo sum” (I think, therefore I am). What an unconditional statement this was. It presumes nothing, and it conquers all the metaphysical hot-air spewed by people who would like to think that they do not really exist. I think therefore I am: Such power, and clarity, and truth.  I have the ability to contemplate phenomena, I have the ability to store this contemplation for future consideration, and I have the ability to use this remembered past contemplation to decide how to interact with phenomena in the now, and in the future. This is my intelligence, my reason, and it presupposes and declares the existence of ME.

So, I exist, and I do so, as aforementioned, in direct opposition to Christian morality. Let me, who knows with certainty that he exists because he thinks, use my intellect to decide whether:

A. I should believe and adhere to a religion antithetical to my life.

B. I should believe that an omnipotent creator would make the prerequisite to life a damnable sin and rebel against this thought-to-be creator therefor.

C. I should laugh at the outrageous presumption that a paradox such as this could be the attribute of an omniscient, just, and loving being, thus focusing my life neither on rebelling nor adhering seriously to such an illusion, but living as a non-believer.

I venture to think that the most intelligent route to take here would be C., call me crazy, a loon, a devil, a cretin, call me what you will: this is a choice I have made based on a faculty that I possess which proves that I exist. I think, therefore God is an old joke.

An Unedited Manifest of My Ego


This is merely a strain of thought which I have done nothing to organize. I posted it in the hope that someone will find something wrong and constructively criticize it.

  • God was created first as a means for man to control the horrible forces of nature, a type of psychological umbrella. His origin is Humanistic, though time, ignorance, and governments have debased gods pandering to man to a god whom man panders to, essentially distancing supernatural belief from its humanistic roots, and giving the keys to the priest and other higher authority bent on control.Modern religion now revolves around this mythical construct, Mankind lying somewhere in the exterior, in the form of a loon and a sinner. They created this umbrella to use, now they sacrifice their first-born children to it. Though this god cannot talk, we luckily have the priest to inform us of this omnipotent being’s fiats. The priest says, “God says,’bow down.’” “Yes sir”, we say.       ”God says,’Condoms are worse than AIDS.’”  And it becomes imperative to start a crusade against condoms.
  • Faith in this bullshit( there is no better word) is generally considered today, in our culture, to be the zenith of goodness. So much worth do Christians  place in faith, that it is the only imperative to enter the gates of Heaven.
  • What does it take to have faith. What must you and I do in order to reach this divine, and noble place? Why, we must shut our logic, our strength, and we must sacrifice our ego. We must conform, we must go from men, to bleary-eyed bovines ready to believe anything, and ready to trample anyone for the sake of faith. Now hopefully, in this sponge-like state, someone doesn’t come along and convert us to a false faith, else we burn anyway. Doesn’t this truth cheapen that celestial suburb?
  • This is the goal of every governance; to meld the individual person into an American, or Jew, or a Muslim or a Christian; to persuade him to sacrifice his own ego for some vague ideal. Only after one has melded himself to ‘god’s will’,  could the high priest of any religion manifest itself and begin to issue brutal fiats based on nothing but this very priest’s word. People will listen to nonsense if they believe that by doing so their ideal will be reached; they will even call the adherence to this nonsense morality. Insert such stupidities as culture, and watch people form into massive groups, each with its very own asinine, illogical, traditions. Each with its true and perfect creator of the universe. Each listening to the priest for the revelation of a god. Each harboring an ideal. Each wishing for a Camelot. Each sacrificing all they have for what they can never attain.
  • Once a governance has become the sole perceived conduit to truth, peace, happiness, and safety, it may reign in whatever stupid way it chooses, because the people are under the impression that it cannot be wrong since whatever it does is right, even if it’s actions were once considered evil. A Christian is inclined to believe the Pope was right when he said the Holy Land must be retaken from the infidels by use of force, even though Christianity is a religion founded on the life of a generally peaceful and passive man. Hypocrisy, but the Pope is the accepted head of the accepted Church of the accepted god, and to deny him, to even question him means being opposed to the ideal, to a future in heaven.
  • Here is the reason why morality has as many faces as there are cultures in this world, and why it can easily be corrupted.  Morality is simply the prescribed method of movement toward an ideal. Virtue then depends on the sought after end, and the supposed means to that end. When Hitler said that the Jews were the sole obstacle between Germany as it stood and Germany as it was idealized: perfect, and dominant, he made it moral for Nazis to round Jews up like chaff and burn them. Hitler became a messenger and a guide for a certain people’s Utopia. They gained that familiar tunnel vision which distorts reality and often leads to destruction. Despite the fact that murder is inherently antithetical to the human animal, the human can be led to murder without conscience if he believes he is striving for an ideal. Likewise the Jew obliged without qualm to the slaughter of Canaanites, because he was moving to the rhythm of god’s will. History is nothing if not the recording of the effects of people sacrificing their individualism for a cause ‘above’ their mundane existence. These causes always take on a symbol; whether a statue, a tree, a rock, a flag, or a cross. For the Nazis it was the Swastika, for the Jew the star of David, for the American the Stars and Stripes, and for the mainstream atheist, it is the giant, in-your-face A. These symbols are necessary because the actual purpose is too vague, too odd, and too tenebrous to galvanize and hold the attentions of the masses it seeks.
  • I venture to think that the only symbol worthy of adoration and sacrifice is I, to hell with the rest. Any ideal outside or ‘beyond’, which entails one to abolish his ego for the betterment of the whole, is contradictory and thus evil to oneself.

The Moral Standard


We have all heard the Christian say in a debate how god is the standard,(their triune god), and thus this divinity is proven by the inherent sense of right and wrong, in most of us. What can be said in rebuttal here? Can anything be said? Is god proven by our sense of right and wrong?

Of course, the logic here is absurd: if this were a scientific inquiry the fact that psychopaths exist would debase this fable that morality is divinely bestowed upon us all. Psychopaths, ‘soulless’ people, congenitally amoral, forsaken before they had the choice to sin. They lack this standard. And, unless god is capricious and unfair, or non-existent, this wouldn’t be the case. Every single human would be given an equally flat and sturdy launch pad to heaven.

Or, one could use the track-record of faith itself, the practice of being godlike, to show quite explicitly that belief in god, rather than being the catalyst of goodness, is often the source of genocidal, murderous, and draconian policy. May we separate god from every crime of religion, saying that these were atrocities due to confusion or blindness, then the inexorable question arises: Where is this personal god? Where is this light-house?

But this idea that a god is the moral standard will persist until there is a relevant and accurate answer to this question regardless of the tomes of credible reason set against it, so what’s needed here is an answer.

What is the moral standard? Where does the popular sense of right and wrong derive from, why do certain acts get interpreted as good, and others as bad or evil, if not for a god?

Lets comprise a mathematical formula to negate any possible superficiality that may act as a mirage, to mislead us.

You have, on the one hand, the moral theist, and on the other, the moral atheist. This fact, that morality is very possible in the theist and atheist alike, indicates that belief is not a requisite to being ethical. Now, subtract the two.

moral theistic human

moral atheistic human

Moral human

It seems we can  rule out belief, or lack thereof, as superfluous in the moral question. One can be good with or without a supernatural custodian, and one can also be bad either way.  Neither is the standard of morality, neither is more than an added barrier which restricts access to the true moral standard, the humanity of us all. Humanity as the moral standard, not faith, not this god or that stone. It’s a testament to the filth of the religious neurosis that this truth is so revolutionary.

Humans, save the psychopaths, are born with a desire to be good, though the definition of goodness is not defined a priori. Thus, a person’s conception of good is formed from their family and their environment, in childhood. From the barrage of experience in that time of uncertainty, characters are formed, beliefs are solidified, lives are set on their course. The numerous religions, each with its legions of dedicated acolytes, attests to this. In a universe with one god, such as the Biblical universe, Christians would be the crystalline purveyors of goodness, and everyone else would be barbaric, amoral psychopaths; rapping, pillaging, slaughtering. Such, in fact, is the Biblical universe, but such is not our universe.

The congenital ethical desire, shed in this light, shows with horrible clarity the importance of early childhood, and the indispensable need for a proper method of education(one focused on teaching children how to think as individual humans). In these tumultuous times, to indoctrinate youth with religious dogma the likes of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, or with Socialistic drivel the likes of Stalin-ism, or Marxism,  which devalues the importance of the individual, and which teaches that the governor knows best, you know nothing,intuition is the key to truth, and reason the pitfall into an eternal torture, is a crime no less than teaching a child that murder is virtue.

Why Individualism if the moral standard is humanity? Why not Communistic Humanism? Aren’t the tenets of socialism conducive to this godless morality, more so than this individualism? No. These methods (communism, socialism, fascism), are merely religions without gods. They are Procrustean beds. It takes a religious mentality to create these forms of governance and to bow to them. It takes a whole legion of pious fucking sheep, Epsilon-like beings, to fuel these monstrosities. And what have they ever created? Destruction. Dictators. Mental Disease. What was Hitler but a godless priest?

What becomes of Man without his ability to stand as an individual? Why, he become a bullet for a rifle held by a dictator. A gun aimed at humanity itself. This dictator can be divine or other, it doesn’t matter, because the end is the same: Humanity suffers one more bullet wound.

And this human origin means that morality is subjective, it is organic, it is not written upon tablets of rock by some delusional priest with power and eternal residence in a mansion on his mind. It is mundane. It is imperfect. It is real. Here is the source of our love, Humanity. Here is the reason we sacrifice, Humanity. Here is the reason we move, here is the reason we function, here is what we mean by progress, Humanity. Not god, but you; the mortal, fallible, ‘sinful’ human, are the standard.

Morality is not something to be written down for all, it is for each individual to write for their self. Only then does the Socratic reasoning of Nietzsche begin to make sense:

Reason=Virtue=Happiness

Is Atheism Arrogance?:}


        The indictment of arrogance is frequently submitted by the cornered theist as a last ditch effort to stave off the validity of the atheist. It is ironic that they would resort to using such admonishment, considering the meaning of all their beliefs. What is the Creation theory but universal anthropomorphic propaganda?

A DIALOGUE

 Who created man?

 “The god”, sayeth theist1.

 Who created the universe?

“This selfsame god.”

And for whom did this god create this vast universe?

 “Why, for man.”

And, my dear, idiot theist, why O’ why does the sun rise, and the Earth spin, and why is the grass green, and why are there other animals here on Earth, and why do the stars shine at night? 

“Of course, these are all gifts from god for Man, his most beloved species.” 

End….

Some say atheism is a leap of faith much greater than belief in god/gods/Santa Claus/ Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Some argue that a supernatural creator is Self-Evident, and that it is the atheist who is in denial of reality. In other words, it is him/her who DOESN’T believe that snakes talk, or that virgins birth super-hybrid god-men bent on saving the world by being strung up like a common powerless criminal, who are the delusional ones. 

Some say these things, but is any rebuttal really needed?

Psychosis


As men who gyrate to a stone, a pig, a calf, or a book

Who contemplate truth from the comfort of their nook

who speak in tongues, the idiotic language of God

Whom decipher the hard, true, and tested method as fraud

Who believe that walking on water is deserving of praise

whilst numerous mortals still drown everyday

Who sanctify a mountain and listen to an inflamed bush

to give all uncertainty an anthropomorphic push

Who say they are confident and that they are saved

who say they are godly and their way is paved

as they plunder history like a rouge wave

“Peace and love are under the cross”

“morality stems from Biblical laws”

They wave a white flag and brandish their swords

peacefully they murder innocent hordes

In righteousness they impale the witch

as though they were a servant scratching God’s itch

What is the definition of such a belief

which says that god is love and the creator of Hell

A deity incensed in myrrh who still smells

like a billion corpses roasting with an angel who fell

Psychosis-a mental disorder characterized by symptoms, such as delusions or hallucinations, that indicate impaired contact with reality.

Neitzsche- A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.

Utter vanity is all muttering in our sleep

gently caressing inane theories

suckling foolishness like a mother’s teat

resting our logic on steel pillows

no wonder reason bellows

Linking ourselves to a dream

calling all other action obscene

“I have had a dream and you must listen”

or be exterminated with no revision

Into one gas shower or another

whither Auschwitz or perdition

whether divine or governmental

what’s the difference?
