Things straight!

Standard

Hello from the internet!

I have many times come upon a news story in the self-serving ratings-grabbing media that has left me sticking my fingers down my throat making vomiting noises. Today I will elaborate and demonstrate the very loads of shit and drivel to which I refer!

I read that that attention grabbing fat fuck Oprah was being a fucking bitch,( as usual ), in Zurich by pulling the race card as self-important assholes usually do. Well, I dismissed the news story because I know Goddamned well that EVERYONE knows who that asshole Oprah is and just wanted the Goddamned money for the handbag because these asshole stars are always throwing their CONSIDERABLE weight around. There IS NO story here, period! Reasonable logical people do NOT rely on celebrities for instruction in how to conduct their lives. We use evidence and reason. not hype, to make informed decisions that effect our lives. I don’t give two brass plated fucks about what Angelina and the kids are doing, I pay attention to Brad and the lessons I can learn from World War Z! He actually demonstrated a very important thing that people who want to survive a zombie apocalypse need to know! NEVER get caught in a densely populated area and don’t LIVE in such an area! Get to an area of fresh water and wide open spaces, point taken! The point is to not listen to the magic box in the living room to tell you how to live! Also, don’t believe any Demoncrats or Republicunts! Be logical and pragmatic, be in the middle.

Point 1-Zimmerman identified as Hispanic, so it was Hispanic on black crime. Media distortion over!

Point 2-Paula Deen stupidly, in this fucking liberal society, admitted to using the N-Word 20+ years ago. I don’t give a rats ass about her personal leanings as long as her fried chicken kicks ASS! How many motherfuckers have these thoughts and NEVER get vilified for it? Duck fuckin’ Dynasty anyone?

Point 3-Black leaders pressure people to sit on their ass and do nothing. Other communities look at each other with puzzlement when you ask who their ‘leaders’ are. Why? Because others exist in their communities without self-appointed assholes like Sharpton and Jackson telling them what to think and do! These idiots have done nothing but feed off of the dependency that they have fostered in their own communities. The moral of the story? Stop listening to these self-appointed assholes, start taking care of your illegitimate children and get a fucking job! No one is getting on you for more melanin in your skin, we just get on you for crying ‘poor me’ and rejecting personal responsibility. I know that the liberal assholes today don’t know what personal responsibility is, but logical reasonable people do!

Barack Obama identifies with his African roots and that is great! We have an American President with African heritage, awesome! The fact is is that racism will ALWAYS exist as long as differences in appearance exist, that is fact. Smart people are able to see past this, ignorant people are not. We live in a world of 90% followers so what does that say to anyone? It says that sheeple will believe anything that the magic box in the living room tells them! Thus, we must believe that unless the 10% of forward thinkers takes control of these idiots, then nothing significant will happen. People need to be lead, they cannot exist without leadership. Look at the Mormon religion. It has NO BASIS in proof but has 13 million moron followers! If this is not a scathing indictment of humanity, I don’t know what is!

When the shit hits the fan the liberal PETA assholes are gonna thank fucking christ for gun-toting, survivalist meat-eating hunters who had the mind to prepare for an emergency! Anyone without a marketable skill, say a career welfare asshole, will have no use in a society and will be left to die! All dumbshit observations like ‘they were kept ignorant’, or ‘they don’t know any better’ won’t be worth a piss in Hell. Everybody will be expected to produce or be turned out to perish the way it should be! Here is MY social contract! If you work, you eat! If you don’t work, you perish, PERIOD! Fuck political correct Naziism and liberalism, none of this shit works in an emergency because it involves letting a facet of humanity sit on their asses due to an imaginary slight!

African slave traders sold their people into slavery in the beginning of slavery and are STILL selling people into slavery now! I don’t own ANY of this! Put the blame where it belongs and tell the truth, if the Africans had had the same technology then they would have committed the same atrocities as the conquerors of yesteryear! Shit happens and GET BEYOND IT! I and all of my like-minded thinkers do not do ‘white guilt.’ We never will. Fuck liberals and their gun control and false racist calls, AND their unrealistic idiot expectations of the human race. Fuck Republicunts and religion!

I’m off to enjoy Paula Deen fried chicken and Venison steak shot between the eyes by yours truly! Politically correct people, go fuck yourselves in your fucking asses and keep your feel-good bullshit to yourself! My folks, promote bio-energy, solar and water power, grow your own gardens, raise your own beef/pork, hunt and live off of the grid. Take reason and logic to heart and apply it to your every day life. Kill your TV and listen to your network of people. Peace out people!

Why are millennials leaving church? Try atheism

By Hemant Mehta, Special to CNN

(CNN) – Articles and books about why millennials are leaving Christianity often focus on what churches are doing “wrong.”

They’re anti-gay, anti-women, anti-science, anti-sex-education and anti-doubt, 
to name a few of the most common criticisms.

I don’t disagree with those critiques, but there’s another side to the story.

While Christians have played sloppy defense, secular Americans have been showing off some impressive offense, giving young Christians plenty of reasons to lose faith in organized religion.

For instance, atheists dominate the Internet, rallying to thriving websites and online communities in lieu of physical meeting spaces.

Even a writer for the evangelical magazine Relevant admitted that “While Christianity enjoys a robust online presence, the edge still seems to belong to its unbelievers.”

Atheists outnumber Christians on popular discussion forums like Reddit, where subscribers to the atheism section number more than 2 million. The Christianity section is not even 5% of that.

The Internet-based Foundation Beyond Belief, which encourages atheists to donate to charitable organizations, just celebrated raising $1 million for worthwhile causes. (Disclosure: I serve on its board of directors.)

Moreover, blogs and websites espousing non-religious viewpoints and criticizing Christianity draw tons of Internet traffic these days. For every Christian apologist’s argument, it seems, there’s an equal and opposite rebuttal to be found online. I call that “Hitchens’ Third Law.”

Christians can no longer hide in a bubble, sheltered from opposing perspectives, and church leaders can’t protect young people from finding information that contradicts traditional beliefs.

If there’s an open comment thread to be found on a Christian’s YouTube video or opinion piece online, there’s inevitably going to be pushback from atheists.

There has also been a push by atheists to get non-religious individuals to “come out of the closet” and let people know that they don’t believe in God.

Among other things, this proves that anti-atheist stereotypes aren’t accurate and, just as important, that atheists aren’t alone in their communities.

There’s the Richard Dawkins Foundation’s Out Campaign, with its Scarlet A badges.

There are atheist-encouraging billboards in 33 states financed by groups like theUnited Coalition of Reason.

There’s even going to be an 1-800 hot line for people “recovering” from religion.

And last year, an estimated 20,000 atheists turned out for the Reason Rally in Washington, a tenfold increase from the previous atheist rally in 2002.

But more than anything else, atheism’s best advertisements may be the words of Christian leaders themselves.

When Pastor Mark Driscoll belittles women, Rick Warren argues against same-sex rights or Rob Bell equivocates on the concept of hell, we amplify those messages for them – and it helps us make our point.

(It goes without saying that the pairing of Pat Robertson and YouTube has been great for atheists.)

Pastors are no longer the final authority on the truth, and millennials know it.

Even if they hold Jesus’ message in high esteem, the Bible as it has traditionally been preached by many evangelical pastors is becoming less and less attractive to them.

A 2012 study by the Public Religion Research Institute (PDF) showed that many Christians aged 18-24 felt that Christianity was hypocritical (49%), judgmental (54%) and anti-gay (58%).

In addition, Christianity Today reported last year that fewer than half of born-again Christians under 35 opposed same-sex marriage.

When millennials’ pastors and hearts are going in different directions, church leaders should be worried.

Can churches win back the youth?

Barring a complete shift in beliefs, that may not be possible. Some of the proposed solutions seem ludicrous to millennial atheists like myself.

For instance, there’s been talk of finding a better way to reconcile science and religion. Whenever that battle takes place, religion loses.

There are some questions we may never know the answer to, but for the ones we can eventually answer, the scientific explanation will devour the religious one. Mixing science and religion requires a distortion of one or the other.

What about focusing on the message and life of Jesus?

While this sounds good philosophically, the myth surrounding Jesus is part of the problem with Christianity.

To believe in Jesus means believing that he was born of a virgin, rose from the dead and performed a number of miracles.

There’s no proof of any of that ever happened, and atheists place those stories in the same box as “young Earth creationism” and Noah’s Great Flood.

To be sure, if Christians followed the positive ideas Jesus had, we’d all be better off, but it’s very hard to separate the myth from the reality.

In short, there are many reasons the percentage of millennials who say they’ve never doubted God’s existence is at a record low, and nearly a quarter of adults under 30 no longer affiliate with a faith.

The church has pushed young people away, yes, but there are also forces actively pulling them in the other direction.

It appears that atheists and Christians are finally working together on the same task: getting millennials to leave the church.

My sentiments are reflected perfectly above in this expert piece of writing by Mr. Mehta. I believe that the young people of this nation are being exposed to too many facts to be snowed by myth. The information age has helped atheism in exponential ways by showing people that facts explain their world while myths float on the wind as intangible stories. We, as a people, do not support the fanaticism that is present in places like the Middle East so religious psychos are few, but in Iraq or Afghanistan you can find them on any chosen street corner. Take the myth out of raising children and you advance the reasonable thinking of the human race. Yes, the U.S has it’s problems, but that cannot change without trial and error. Sheeple exist in vast numbers and must be led to do the right thing by reason and not myth.

Read this and take the message to heart! The facts are speaking in great numbers right the fuck now!! Wake up myth masters, the reason that you are losing followers is…wait for it….REASON! Most Christians don’t believe in God anyway, they are just too scared to admit it. Jesus could appear in front of a Christian today and if he couldn’t do anything supernatural then he would be dismissed as a fraud. MOST Christians require proof but live their lives in the flimsy lie of belief. It’s comfortable to identify with what you’ve been indoctrinated to and easy to carry the mantle of the believer. Once the mantle is thrown off though, you have to surrender to logic, fact and reason. There IS no cosmic sky daddy watching over you and protecting you, ( while magically letting your neighbor’s kid die of cancer ), and this life is the only one you have so you have to make the best of it now! Heavy shit, I know! I went thru this at 12 and it weighed heavily on my ‘soul.’ Everything that I had been taught was bullshit designed to separate me from personal responsibility and reasonable thought! When I accepted the truth, I began to do things that positively effected my life because I knew that I could not count on the sky fairy for ANYTHING! The amazing specter could not so much as move a fucking penny let alone turn water into wine! All of that was unwitnessed fairy tale bullshit sold to uneducated masses in need of a collective pacifier. When it was shoved into their mouths they shut the fuck up and stopped crying about their pitiful lives because now they were given purpose instead of being dismissed as idiots.

Today in America and other industrialized nations, the poor can make a better life. In the past it wasn’t that easy. Now God is becoming obsolete because other things are giving people importance besides imaginary beings. I will conclude with this. Be proud to be an individual and fill your life with knowledge and reason. Peace out y’all!  

I very much doubt the existence of the Lord YOUR god

Aside

I very much doubt the existence of the corporeal Jesus due to the overwhelming lack of historical evidence as well as the conflicting tales surrounding his supposed life. I also must often suffer the common platitudes of the closet philosopher’s specious supposition of a Buddhist-like Jesus figure who never meant to become a living god, but who wandered among the masses spreading a message of peace and love. Now I understand this mostly milquetoast approach to the argument as a way to avoid the intellectual stimulation of good old fashioned debate, but let us be honest in our assessment of the absolute facts or lack thereof.

According to the most trusted and reliable historical data there is very flimsy evidence supporting several possible candidates for a likely Jesus. This equates to searching for the proverbial ‘needle in a haystack’ and is at best supportive of conjecture only. In the podcast archives of The Thinking Atheist website there is a historical discussion of this very nature by noted authorities refuting ALL of the most popular suppositions as to the existence of a historical Christ. These arguments are accepted by most reasonable scholars due to the thorough nature in which they dissect the explanations offered by theological experts. In short-all argument for the existence of a true Christ figure are nothing but fragments of prehistorical references pieced together by those wishing to exploit the virtuous aspect of a philosopher-king in an effort to control a vast number of people. Jesus, my readers, was created for crowd control as was pepper spray. Jesus is a celestial can of pepper spray that if crossed, promises to have dire effects on the chosen offender!

The only remedy for pepper spray is to flush the eyes vigorously and then you will see….are you beginning to see?Hmmmmm? FLUSH YOUR MIND AND YOU WILL SEE-THE TRUTH! (As Mulder said, ‘It’s out there!’)
