The Origins of Valentine's Day

What is Valentine's Day to you? A special day with your sweetheart? An excuse to wear red and pink? A chance to eat chocolate all day? A day to exchange gifts with the special people in your life? Just another Hallmark-Holiday?





For me personally it's a day to do something special for my sweetheart. I do also feel that it is a bit too… Continue

winding fate

There is far more to this world than taught in our schools, shown in the media, or proclaimed by the church and state. Most of mankind lives in a hypnotic trance, taking to be reality, what is instead, a twisted simulacrum.

A collective dream in which values are inverted, lies are taken as truth, and tyranny is accepted as security. They enjoy their ignorance and cling tightly to the misery that gives them identity.



Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that… Continue

Again, I set a new mind in hand, sculptured like a work of art that I purposely destroy with pride. The Conquered jestures I portray and entone are that of your amnisty. The truth that lies before me steals the idea of existance and anima, yet my gnostic look upon life is that of an inward disapline that ends all joys of suprise. A conjured Primises of embeselment allows me the enjoyment of self-reprisel and a non-judgemental consious. Ha, the words I speak are not even interpreted correctly,… Continue

insomnia coffee

Nights are long and I'm tired. I have things to do, yet there is nothing. Were has my dreams gone? Sleepless and spitefull to the undeserving. Where did I go wrong? The reflection I seek is now lost in his own world, not looking to be found.



Questions, yet no answers.



"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I've killed a man, myself....and yet I feel no remorse. Am I wrong for felling like this?"



To repeat my same story over and over again never to be heard.… Continue

A sword amoung words

Gleemful with a minor integrity, I have worked the world around me as a marionette with unseen strings of Blood and Fear. I've been the epicenter of self-destruction and self loathing, but I still exist in my same cycle of self-delusion. Plentiful with words of ignorance, I fill a void called "Life" within myself and look for nothing to guide me. No torch which to see my path through this dark tunnel that is this "Life". If you can find the level of reasoning that I exist under, you will find… Continue

To who saw life steadily, and saw it whole I ask "what? What did you see?"

Don't you see that there is no possible source of evil, except that of good?

And can't you fell the stares of all those who are blind, reaching for an answer?

I guess your words just ring….

Hollow….

Emptiness glows your eternal breath again.

Hollow…

Grit your teeth and bind your fists, ask for redemption and receive only this.

Hollow…

And lost amoung the sheep, I… Continue

The unconscious consciousness

Were do we begin?.....Where do we end? For that matter what do we want? Something

willfully shiny to catch the attention? The unimaginable, untangeble subatomic realm

that is our conscious. Theta waves and lingering memories that flow endlessly

between our active minds and sub-conscious. We all know we have our thoughts and

realisms. We all draw our own outline to the box that is our paradigm, and because we

do this we live as separate enenties. With our singled out… Continue

Audio Book Review: "Letting Go of God" by Julia Sweeney

I saw this CD set at a book store a while back for over $20. It caught my eye, but didn't seem like it would be worth the price. But when I saw it for way cheaper on iTunes, I decided to give it a go.



Sweeney's background is typical is some ways. She was given a very strong religious upbringing. Although she sees the hypocrisy behind the rules of her faith as a child, she still believes in god. This illustrates the mental pounding her parents gave her, in an effort to "instill… Continue

Christian Immorality

It has been nearly two weeks since my conclusion to my two test subjects. These test subjects were part of a psychology experiment I set forth to find answers to see if fundamentalist Christians have morals towards those they consider outside their "moral community." The results concluded my hypothesis, which in turn was deeply saddening.



I have done three small scale case studies with religious extremist, mainly Christians. If my next test subject concludes my hypothesis I will be… Continue

Vatican Accepts Darwinian Evolution as True

The Vatican has admitted that Charles Darwin was on the right track when he claimed that Man descended from apes.



A leading official declared yesterday that Darwin’s theory of evolution was compatible with Christian faith, and could even be traced to St Augustine and St Thomas Aquinas. “In fact, what we mean by evolution is the world as created by God,” said Archbishop Gianfranco Ravasi, head of the Pontifical Council for Culture. The Vatican also dealt the final blow to speculation… Continue

Tradition

I'm currently reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I'm reading it for two reasons: one, I love her. She's a genius and I want to be just like her one day!** Two, there's a $10,000 scholarship essay to be gained from reading it. So far, there's nothing remotely burdensome about reading this book and so I'll actually enjoy writing the essay.



Anyway, I just read this paragraph that struck a very deep chord in me (bold added for…

Christians Don't Even Recognize Their Own Kind

Religious Extremist So Crazy He Doesn't Even Know His Own Kind

Not breaking news, I know; but since I can't find any other posts about Bonestroo, thought I'd share.



Derik Bonestroo was the ski lift operator who fatally shot the general manager of the Eldora ski area in Colorado on December 30th. He entered one of the ski area buildings, fired his gun, and said "If you're not Christian, you're going to… Continue

Spending in the Stimulus Bill

***UPDATE***

Since I wrote this, my opinions on the subject have changed a bit. Enough that I would not have made this post if I could go back. I'll leave it here b/c it will remind me and other's that I am not above being wrong and/or changing my mind based on new information.

***UPDATE***





The more I read of this bill, the more I get pissed off. There are a LOT of good things in there. A LOT. The problem is that we can't afford it. We don't need all of this extra… Continue

Prometheus, Unchained

We’re all like Prometheus; chained by the gods to the rock of superstition and fear. Unfortunately, no one knows they’re slaves to the Zeitgeist of the era; of eras past. We are all descended from the same primitive roots of our humanity. Our beliefs about the world are shaped by our ancestors’ misunderstanding of it.



In our waking consciousness, we tried to understand the world based on our perception. We could not explain the phenomenon that caused thunder and so blamed it on a… Continue

Proof That God Is A... WOMAN!

Are you old enough to remember this?



There was a time when TV just shut down for the night. Johnny Carson was on for about 90 minutes, followed by Tom Snyder, then some horrible programming like "Dance Fever." Eventually, there would be something with a title like "Moment of Inspiration." This was a preacher delivering a message for a few minutes. This was followed by The Star Spangled Banner and white noise for a few hours.



PSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!" The sound would… Continue

I'm Catholic Because...

The religious history in my family is simple. Grandpa was a Protestant, while grandma was a Catholic. When they wanted to get married, neither church would recognize the marriage. Grandma noticed that there were church-sanctioned marriages in her circles, where the husband would beat the wife. There were cases of infidelity, alcoholism, and other maladies. But it's a-okay, because they're both Catholic.



They flipped their collective birds at their respective institutions anyway and… Continue
