THE AGE OF REASON

“I read the most excellent treatise and critique of that superstitious body of mythology written by the American revolutionary, Thomas Paine. Although Mr. Paine is not a popular fellow in Britain, having fathered the uprising against King George which resulted in the loss of the greatest possession ever claimed by the throne of England, he is nonetheless a man of preeminent intellect and prodigious reasoning ability.

His book, The Age of Reason; Being an Investigation of True and *Fabulous Theology, to my own system of logical assessment and evaluation represents the most thorough, factual and incontrovertible dissection of the Bible, which unfortunately serves our civilization as a guideline for survival.  After having read his preeminent work of logical vivisection upon the content of the Bible, and by abstraction, a commentary upon the paradigm of Western Civilization, it is no longer a mystery to me that humanity has endured so great an extent of war, misery, chaos, greed, destruction and mayhem inflicted by Western imperialism upon the Earth at the behest of, and with regal and religious blessings.

As for my personal observation and conviction concerning the matter of religion, I concur with the statement most ably stated by  Thomas Paine himself:

“I hope for happiness beyond this life. I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavouring to make our fellow-creatures happy.  I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.  I do not mean by this declaration to condemn those who believe otherwise; they have the same right to their belief as I have to mine. But it is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.”  

(Definition of the word “fabulous” — adjective:  based on or told of in traditional stories; lacking factual basis or historical validity)

GO TELL IT LIKE IT IS

7122_56c5_640“While shepherds kept their watching
Over silent flocks by night,
Behold throughout the heavens,
There shone a holy light:
Go, Tell It On The Mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go, Tell It On The Mountain
That Jesus Christ is born.”

from the Christian song, “Go Tell It On The Mountain”. “Go Tell It on the Mountain” is an African-American spiritual song, compiled by John Wesley Work, Jr., dating back to at least 1865, that has been sung and recorded by many gospel and secular performers. It is considered a Christmas carol because its original lyrics celebrate the Nativity of Jesus  (Wikipedia.org)

bloody child birth

I don’t care who you are.  I don’t care what a bunch of superstitious sheep herders say.  Birth is bloody and painful!  If you are inhabiting a biological body on Earth, your mother sacrificed her body and her life to bear you and feed you with her tits (or a bottle) and work her ass off to support and clothe you until you were old enough to take care of yourself!  The TRUTH is that this “religious holiday” should be a celebration and admiration of MOTHERS!  In spite of ancient superstitions, and patriarchal propaganda, Jesus (if the guy ever really existed) inhabited a biological body that was produced by a women who fucked a man and got pregnant and gave birth to a stinking, screaming baby body, just like everyone else on this god-forsaken planet!

PATRIARCHAL SOCIETY

“SLINKY SERPENTS HISS: SENSUAL SEX SENSATIONS…SAVORY, SUMPTUOUS”

Haiku Poem, by Lawrence R. Spencer

It is the usual trait of Men, who inhabit fragile forms of flesh, to blame their addictions and inability to be responsible for their own ignorance and brutality,  AND to blame others for the own disabilities.  Such is the classic case of the authors of the Bible, and other ancient mythological texts in the Western World.  In about 600 BCE while the Jews were captive in Babylonia, the few scribes that could actually write, compiled and committed to paper their own pathetic history.  Much of what they wrote was borrowed or stolen from earlier, ancient civilizations who inhabited Earth for thousands of years before these band of pitiful slaves and peasant.  During the entire history of human beings on Earth, nearly every society, with very few exceptions, we patriarchal.  Simply stated, men ruled and ran societies solely and ONLY because the had larger muscles, less courage and much less empathy, compassion and ability to love than the female half of the population.  Females, by virtue of smaller muscles, and less inclination to beat and murder their fellows, have been literally forced into slavery during the entire history of Earth.

So, it is very easy to understand that one of the FEW WEAPONS that Womankind possess to sustain their own survival, to fight back and protect themselves in a race of brutal idiots, it to develop feminine “charms”:  beauty of face, of form.  Wisdom.  Practical survival sensibilities.  And sexual wiles that men cannot not resist.  These abilities also have to benefit of sustaining the population.  Child birth, the most painful ordeal that ANY human body can possibly endure, cannot be done by men.  Men are too cowardly and weak for the truly agonizing labor of pushing a bowling ball through a hole the size of a small apple!

However, the cowardice and stupidity of Men continues without inspection and remains  unchallenged by the men who are truly the Source of Evil on Planet Earth — Patriarchal Priests and Mindless Sheep.  Women are villainized by weaklings and cowards — PRIESTS ,  to be specific — as “Evil”…..  In the mythology of the “Garden of Eden’, it is the female EVE who is portrayed to be “evil” by the Priests who made up these farcical stories.  The same cowards — most of whom have never had sex with anyone except each other, or small boys, or goats — cram their Patriarchal Propaganda down the throats of the mindless sheep who read them, century after century!  After all the thousands and thousands of years of this brutal stupidity, one could easily argue that Females would be justified in murdering every Priest in their sleep, and any other “man” who continues to brutalize women, while blaming these innocents for their own addiction to sexual sensation!  Or, in the case of Priests, their own inability to understand the meaning of Love, Compassion, Aesthetic, Kindness and Nurturing…. the basic characteristics of Women.
