First, let me begin by saying that I am neither Libertarian nor Republican. I do not believe in elitism or any other practice that purposely disenfranchises sections of humanity. I am an atheist middle-of-the-road type who believes in the reality and certainty of Natural Selection as well as the hardwiring of human inclinations to destroy themselves. My statement that 90% of humanity is composed of followers remains true as is demonstrated by the animal in question. 10% of humanity are forward thinkers and less than 2% are natural born leaders, and the 90% drag the 10% down and thwart most of the good that the 10% could ever accomplish. This has been repetitious throughout human history since the formation of villages.
In the village there were village elders who held authority due to experience and charisma and directed the function of the body of people to greater efficiency or to complete ruin, it depended upon the leader. As humanity overcame natural predators, we gathered into concentrations of greater numbers and abandoned the hunter-gatherer way of life in favor of agrarian society. Villages appeared with small governmental structures and alliances or wars were made against opposing human concentration. History remains very much the same in that the elders, kings, whatever they called themselves, were many times afforded the ability to ignore the very laws that they themselves created because they had become corrupt and greedy. Seem familiar?
Today we complain about deregulation and the oligarchs that it has created. The ‘village elders’ have enacted broad deregulation of all of the major industries in this nation which in turn has allowed a select few to buy everything and stamp out small competition and bring the working people under the corporate boot. This is no different from the practices of 10,000 years ago and will continue until humanity has self-destructed or, on the off chance, evolved beyond the need for killing his brother, which I don’t think is possible. We can put a microchip on the head of a pin in 1967 but can’t control base animal behavior in 2015; we’re gonna fucking die!
Don’t be stupid people, we are full on oligarchy in the U.S and are nothing more than a corporate state with 1% of our population about ready to corner 40% of global wealth, that does NOT bode well for anyone and there is no significant opposition to this form of condoned indentured servitude! People are watching the fucking Kartrashians and worrying about what that stupid vapid whore Kim is gonna name her next genetically challenged supertard instead of trying to prevent corporate America from putting chains around their necks! Unbe-fucking-levable! Get your Goddamned face out of Michelle Duggar’s fucking diseased, well-traveled snatch and pay attention to whats going on before you end up having to hoist a rifle to protect your way of life!! But then again, instead of enacting sensible gun legislation, you pussies will probably try to ban them first. Hitler himself said that the best way to conquer a people was to first disarm them, and I truly believe in this. I believe that one of the reasons that we don’t experience the same problems as the Western Europeans is that terrorists fear our legal gun owners and know that they would never make it to trial if they tried the shit that they did with Charlie Hebdo, (Je suis Charlie, by the way, you savage pieces of shit!).
We, as a nation, are living up to the expectations of those who decry our lack of historical knowledge. We are repeating the most basic corruptions practiced by village elders of pre-history, we are excusing the transgressions of our leadership and looking the other way until things are so fucked up that it takes armed bloodshed to correct! We are doomed, I say. I have no faith in humanity to correct their greed and avarice, so I expect that we will destroy ourselves and another species will become dominant, period. All that I can do as a father, is to protect my children for as long as I can and hope beyond hope that humanity is more than just a base animal, I think not.
Fuck the talk about minimum wage and the bullshit about redistribution of wealth, we won’t be around long enough for anything to make a difference. Free-Speech TV is just a granola-shitting attempt to envision the human race giving a shit about one another and that is truly delusional shit. Much of it is crap anyway and doesn’t jibe with any real situation whatsoever, big fucking surprise.
(CNN)The mysterious deaths of five Utah family members in their Springville home baffled authorities at first.
Benjamin and Kristi Strack were found dead on their bed on September 27. On the floor near them in the locked master bedroom lay the bodies of three of their children, from 11 to 14 years old.
There were no signs of violence, but beside each body, there were cups with liquid inside.
On Tuesday, police in Springville revealed the conclusion of their investigation: The parents had committed suicide by taking toxic levels of drugs and had given fatal levels of drugs — including the heroin substitute methadone — to their younger two children.
Their 14-year-old son, Benson, also had taken toxic levels of drugs, but the manner of death was ruled “could not be determined” because investigators were unsure whether he was capable of deciding to join his parents in committing suicide.
But why would a family do this?
According to a statement released by J. Scott Finlayson, chief of police for Springville, the parents had bought into “a concern about a pending apocalypse.”
From interviews with friends and relatives of the Strack family, the statement said, “it became fairly apparent that the topic of ‘leaving’ this world was a fairly common theme.”
It added, “While some friends thought that suicide may have been, or could have been included in their plans, others believed they were going to move somewhere and live off the grid.”
Tragically, the parents chose the former option, police believe, and took their children with them.
No suicide notes
They didn’t leave behind many clues to their thinking. Investigators found a notebook with the kind of handwritten lists parents write before going on vacation — like feeding the pets and asking someone to watch after the house — but no suicide notes were uncovered.
However, one note was found apparently written by Benson to a friend, “which indicated that Benson was aware that he may die, and was bequeathing his personal possessions to his friend,” the police statement said.
“This was the only letter or note found that gave any indication that family members knew what may transpire in the home.”
It was this note that led investigators to conclude that Benson might have known that he was going to die, having been heavily influenced by his parents’ apocalyptic beliefs, and could have agreed to the plan.
“The other two children were obviously too young, at ages eleven and twelve, to consent to any sort of agreement to commit suicide,” police said of his sister, Emery Strack, and brother, Zion Strack.
This, and the fact that their parents must have provided the drugs, led police to determine that their deaths were homicide.
The medical examiner’s report said the drugs that caused the children’s deaths were methadone and diphenhydramine, a common over-the-counter antihistamine used in such medications as Benylin and Nytol.
The autopsy for Kristi Strack, 36, revealed the cause of death to be “drug toxicity,” with methadone, dextrorphan, diphenhydramine and doxylamine found in her system.
She was receiving methadone treatment, police said, so she would have known just how toxic this combination of drugs would be. This contributed to their determination of suicide.
Her husband, Benjamin Strack, 37, was found to have a toxic level of heroin in his body.
Investigators say they think he was the last to die, his family around him.
“His arm and leg were draped over Kristi. He was on top of the bed covers; while the other family members were under bed covers. This would indicate that he was likely the last in the family to succumb to the toxic levels of drugs in his system,” the statement said.
This was the awful scene that confronted another son of Kristi Strack when he and a girlfriend, who’d noticed an eerie quiet in the house, got inside the locked bedroom.
In an audio recording of the 911 call made from the house, also released by police, an emotional-sounding young woman can be heard saying that “the whole family is dead” and that they’ve “killed themselves.”
Finlayson expressed his condolences to Strack family relatives, saying the unexpected nature of the deaths must have intensified their shock and grief.
“In a case such as this one, where this family has lost not one, but five family members, the deep emotional pain must be incredibly difficult. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family,” his statement said.
CNN’s Teri Genova contributed to this report.
-This just in, another bunch of fundamentalist assholes have taken their lives and murdered their own children in crazy devotion to a mythological supreme sky cop who seems to be playing the best hide and seek routine ever! These crazy idiots are no great loss to society, but should have been able to be held accountable for the slaughter of the innocent kids!
I have always believed in that which built this country, I just don’t believe in greedy bullshitters! I built my life after living in cars for the 1st 18 years of my life. I have proven the words that this man says!! My path? GED, tech school, military, college, grad school! All self-made without welfare!
The christian crusades mark some of the most bloody and mad chapters in religious history and are a perfect reason to judge the validity of following illogical shit blindly. For nearly three centuries christianity launched an offensive against the forces of Islam due to idiological differences. Europe had expended such an exponential number of men and an astronomical amount of money to fight for it’s right for a superior mythology, that the entire continent teetered on the brink of bankruptcy if not total insolvency. Millions died of disease, injury and hunger while attempting to inflict the atrocities of torture upon the minions of Mohammed the bible thief. The Islamic religion was, in fact, stolen from the bible in the 600s and ended in 632 CE literally translated as ‘the recitation’ The Holy Quran. As with all myths, the Quran was a linchpin in Mohammed’s arsenal to unite the warring clans of the desert and put them under the banner of a ‘one true god.’
Christianity, with it’s melding of pagan holidays and appeasing of the conquered peoples of Rome created a hodge-podge religion of inaccuracies that was the greatest model for illiterates such as Mohammed and Joseph Smith to create a living document that could control an immense number of illiterate followers. This is the truth of the history of christianity. The advancement of society led to the need to modify the mythology to keep the lemmings in the pews and show that the religion was one of devine tolerance, but I digress.
1066-1099-The first crusade was a military expidition sanctioned by Pope Urban II to regain christian Holy lands taken in the Muslim conquests of the Levant ( 632-661 ), ultimately leading in the capture of Jerusalem in 1099. The Pope, of course, responding to an appeal by Emperor Alexios I Komnenos to send westerner volunteers to his aid in repelling invading Seljuk Turks from Anatolia. The additional goal became the primary goal to conquer Jerusalem and the Holy land in order to free the Eastern Christians from Islamic rule. More to come!!
When I joined the Mormon church I thought it meant More Men!-The Village Priest. That wuz funny…not! Sorry, bloggin’ by the light of the flourescent candle here. Helpin’ with the demise of the wonder of ‘God’s glory, the human eye, which could’nt have possibly come of several million years of evolution! You say GOD?! I say, “If GOD wuz SOOoo great then why didn’t I get Predator vision? HMMMM? I want infra red, thermal and spectral analyzing capabilities! I want to be able to hunt Gary Busey in a freezing meat locker and do battle with Danny Glover! This is too much to ask I guess, because I got stuck with perfectly mundane binocular vision. I don’t even have eyeballs that rotate in different directions like a lizard! No laser vision, heat vision, X-Ray vision, (I’d use it to sparingly invade personal privacy but I’m a man, what do you expect?), etc.
No, I haven’t had to fly off and weld the hull of a sinking ship with my heat vision. I’m stuck listening to the prattlings of reformed but still useless unemployed drug addicts showing me cell phone pics of rocks that are in the shape of Jesus, (look! you can see where he shat himself!!). It’s a miracle! Fucker won’t give you a Goddamned job but he’s free flowing with the miracle snow globes and Buddy Christ dashboard statues! Go figure. I guess that if I were a toothless idiot with an I.Q of 60 then I too, would be impressed with cheap parlor tricks. Lord? I pray…please saw this lady in the box in half and parade her corpse around the room! If you do this I will forever be your humble servant! NEXT!!
Goal for today: Punch the Pope in his fucking eye for being a little quitter bitch! What was his real name? John Ratzenberger? So does that mean he hangs out with Cardinal Normie and Father Woody? Well, he retired today and as of 8PM Central Asshole time he officially retreated to Birchegaden to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest to restart the Third Reich! Being an evil pedophile, I’m sure he is more than man for the job! Be sure to stock up heavily on those Hugo Boss SS uniforms, the athletic fitting ones of course, and Reisen, lots of Storck Chocolate Reisen! One cannot say that the ex-pope is a man without reisen!
For those of you who care, Princess Kate is soon to make that slobbering slope-browed, weak-chinned peice of effeminate ragweed Prince Charles a grandfather! Prince Harry on the other hand is unfortunately going to continue to just fuck himself! Also in important news, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ARE actually Satan, those of you lemmings that follow the show have already inadvertantly sold your souls. Sorry! Too late! We have a no return policy and all sales are fucking final so PISS OFF!!
So this post has a rather weak content, no real purpose! Good! I at least feel better! And thats what really counts! Remember folks, it’s not about you..it’s about me! Always me!! So before I digress into constructing Mohammed bobble-heads or statues of Bhudda made out of my own shit, let me end this post with one last thing. Releasing yourself from the yoke of religion is like eating an entire pan of Ex Lax brownies; you may shit your brains out at first, but when it’s all over you feel so much cleaner inside!
Good Morrow Atheists and other readers!
Yes, I still struggle to get my message out there because this is my first blog ever! I have to strategically embed it into all of the leisure/social electronic networking that I do to spread the GOOD news! But I digress…
My daughter had her best friend over this weekend and she happened to leave one of her college papers here on accident and I just picked it up. The subject is religion and how people are still following it even though it is obviously filled with crooks in almost ALL of the leadership positions. She goes on to mention such mind-criminals as Joel ‘The Hole’ Osteen and various other modern day snake oil salesmen who are not at all masking their Tony Robbins style of mind control. Not that this is necessary seeing that 80 or greater percent of humanity are a bunch of vapid, media-digesting lemmings, but just so you know where this is going, get my drift? This is not new or news in that we already know that those of us who buck this archaic system of spiritual slavery are going to be reviled for our forward-thinking, our vision into a world absent of the yoke of religious oppression.
The paper goes on to point out various things that should be obvious to the average person, that the religion is not on the level and should be ACTUALLY regarded as a financial institution fully vested in the task of earning money for it’s leaders. The opulence in which these assholes exist and to which they elevate the church should at once be the cue, but serves to actually BUILD the flock of the blind! Check out the many Osteen books and seminars, the suits he wears, the money he makes and see if it can be equated with the simple robes and sandals supposedly worn by Jesus! Lemmings eat this shit UP! Some would say that this represents the Great Whore of the ‘End Times.” I say give me her number, I could use a good whore about now! HA! Just kidding! Seriously, the Great whore seems to come into the living room and to the mega-churches everyday and hoodoo EDUCATED people into believing this fairy-tale bullshit!
Just today I was into my Yahoo page and one of the stories was about Jillian Michaels and her new adoption as well as coinciding birth, from her partner, of their new baby. Now I clicked in because I thought I might get to see her in some of her incredibly sexy workout clothes but it was not to be. The article said that she was told early on that she could not have children. Ms. Michaels says that GAWD had other plans for her! This is where it gets to the point that I say that humanity is too stupid to carry on! In Vietnam many of the people are Christians as well as Korea. In Mexico almost all of the population is Catholic. In Ireland you have the Catholics and the Protestants. In the good ol’ USA you have a mix of all AND you have gays and lesbians that go to church, WHY!! All of the above groups that I have just named were FORCED to capitulate or they were killed! Why are these idiots still embracing the religion of their oppressors? Yes, I understand the sociology, but that means that we are truly base life forms who are to pass into history just like the Dodo!
These are frustrating times for those of us who embrace science and reason over cockamamie fairy bullshit. These churches are an unchecked infection that is ravaging mankind and the most prominent symptom is BLINDNESS! Todays huckster sells you on how ‘hip’ it is to believe in fairy tales, that GAWD doesn’t MIND if you have wealth because the ‘faithful’ deserve it for being so kind and upstanding! Church is now run on business models that are right out in the open now! They don’t have to hide it because the business man astually LIKES that his church is the most successful. Sound like the Mormons? They have been following the business model for years earning them the animosity of the other faiths, but now that it’s the ‘in’ thing, it’s popular now for all churches to be a business. This and they dangle the fact that other church members will only patronize YOUR business because you are one of them.
Beware, is all that I can say. Beware of these motivational spiritual self-help books based in religion that will encourage you to believe that you can’t improve yourself without faith. When I envision ‘The Great Whore’, besides thinking of yo’ mama(just kidding, I am a guy you know), I see these Creflo Dollar/Joel Osteen/Benny Hinn fucking illusionists preying on the weak-minded, the troubled and the psychologically injured souls who are searching for meaning and falling for the Tony Robbins-like pump-up to make them feel whole again. Atheists tend to have these traumatized souls as well, but traumatized from religion. We also have the fiercely independent people who think appropriately that religion is just another crutch, a plug in the the leaky wall, a band-aid and not a viable solution to problems that need a PERMANENT solution.
On that note, I will say FUCK FUCKETY FUCK FUCK FUCK!! Strange ending? Sorry. I had a houseguest over the weekend who calls EVERYONE on ‘Language’. This isn’t because of religion, but the adherance to certain rules closely resembles that crap! With such prose as the above, I am finding that one does NOT necessarily use cursing because their vocabulary is lacking, please see above rant as an example. I have NEVER been accused of the lack of vocabulary, indeed I have been vociferously accused of using my ‘Harvard Mouth’ to baffle and gain the upper hand in a debate! Team America-FUCK YEAH! I will now sign off and attend to the business of fighting religion by other means. Please, if you are a believer, leave a response. I have not been, in one of my thousands of debates with believers, been swayed or even close to beaten when debunking religion. I have science and reason and NOTHING trumps THAT! Peace out!
