More imposition through ignorance

More imposition through ignorance
By Kerry Walker 4/24/06

Can this really be happening? Last week, Governor Sonny Purdue signed a bill that will allow school systems in Georgia to offer elective classes on the Bible. This concerns me greatly, and I should think it would concern a whole bunch of people.

They say these classes are intended to be taught in an objective and non-devotional way, but the reality is that this is just another ploy by these twisted so-called Christians to indoctrinate students, and you can bet your bottom dollar, especially in the smaller towns, that this is exactly what will happen.

If there was no intent to impose this strange religion, why not offer a course that studied the world religions instead? Why just study the Western Bible when they should objectively study the Quran, the Vedas, and the other “Bibles” of the world?

I think learning about the many religions of our world would be far more beneficial. By teaching students about the many religions and the different cultures brought about through haritage we would equip them with the knowledge needed to eradicate the ignorance that creates so much wrong behavior and results in so many conflicts today.

Hippity-hoppity hypocrites

Hippity-hoppity hypocrites

It’s a little surprising to hear fundamentalist Christians run to the defense of the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs. The fact is history teaches us that Rabbits and eggs have never been Christian symbols, but rather they had their beginning as symbols for fertility in pagan spring rituals and were later converted to the Christian spring holiday celebrating the bizarre belief in the resurrection of Christ.

Even some of the Christian Web sites have a negative impute on the rituals of Easter, and one Christian Web site, christiananswers.net, goes so far as to condemn them as “the seductive symbols of ancient ungodly religions inspired by Satan.” So on the one hand we have these Christians that are defending Easter and these rituals, and on the other hand we have Christians that say these rituals are evil. The real threat comes from the conservative Christians which are now attempting to rename Easter as “Resurrection Sunday”, and that’s a little scary.

“Some Christian fundamentalist argue that Easter should be scrubbed clean of all taints of paganism and idolatry, including bonnets, bunnies and jelly beans. Even the term ‘Easter’ they claim, doesn’t have strong biblical roots and possibly traces back to the Teutonic goddess of dawn,” and possibly other ancient belief systems.

During the beginnings of Organized Christianity, the origins and timing of Easter was debated. There is only rumor to the possibility that the Council of Nicaea, around A.D. 325 ruled that Eater was to be held on a Sunday as, so the story goes, determined by astronomical calculations. There is also some evidence that suggest, but only in non-historical letters, that the Counsel of Trent in 1563 further pinned down the date by supposedly using the ecclesiastical vernal equinox.

Unfortunately, as with all aspects of Christianity, history cannot tell us anything that was discussed at either council or how the day and date of the mystical resurrection of Christ was determined.

A poem by Kerry Craig Walker

Kerry Craig Walker 1954-


I want to tell you a story, story,
I want to tell you a story, story.
I want you to listen carefully,
I want you to listen carefully.

It’s about what you believe in,
It’s about what you believe.

What you believe is dogma.
What you believe is false.

Somebody slam a door now,
Somebody slam a door.

Or will they go away someday.

Religions, aren’t they just tradition,
Might as well believe in superstition.

Heard about a new one from my cousin.

When things just aren’t going right,
I’ll turn to my faith to hide in tonight.

A poem by Kerry Craig Walker

Kerry Craig Walker 1954-


The world is a fantasy through your eyes,
And you really think that the world is sane,
But it’s really neurotic and you’re to blame.

You can’t seem to see through this disguise,
And you don’t understand that the world is you,
You just go on a being superficial too.

I’m just a human being,
But I don’t like what I see.
All kinds of violence and corruption,
All around me.

You feed off the harm to others,
And you don’t care about their pain.
Is this what keeps you from going insane?

What we’ve done to this world,
It seems a bit odd.
Is it because we are stupid,
Or is it this belief in god.

But maybe someday you’ll realize,
That you are part of its demise.

A poem by Kerry Craig Walker

Kerry Craig Walker 1954-


Thought has created all the religions of the world.
We have been brainwashed!
We have been brainwashed!

We have been bombarded with religious propaganda.
We have been brainwashed!
We have been brainwashed!

Thought creates something sacred and you believe it’s so.
I just want you to know,
We have been brainwashed!
We have been brainwashed!

We have a millennium of conditioning running through our minds.
We have been brainwashed!
We have been brainwashed!

These people that believe have destroyed half the world.
We have been brainwashed!
We have been brainwashed!

And now they are accepting that the world is going to end.
We have been brainwashed!
We have been brainwashed!

I have come upon an intelligence that can save us from it all.
I have not been brainwashed!
I have not been brainwashed!

It’s not your intelligence, and it’s not even mine.
I have not been brainwashed!
I have not been brainwashed!

This is an intelligence that has it foundation in love.
This is true intelligence, the intelligence of the mind.
I have not been brainwashed!

A poem by Kerry Craig Walker

Kerry Craig Walker 1954-


So you say, you say you are a Christian,
So you say, you say you are a Christian.
So what have you done for me?
What have you done for me?

And there’s violence, violence all over the world,
And there’s violence, violence all over the world.
So what have you done for me?
What have you done for me?

And I’m starving, starving over here in Africa,
And I’m starving, starving over here in India.
So what have you done for me?
What have you done for me?

And you’re building, building beautiful buildings,
And you’re spending, spending billions of dollars.
So what have you done for me?
What have you done for me?

And you’re deceiving, deceiving all of you friends,
And you’re deceiving, deceiving even yourself.
So what have you done for me?
What have you done for me?

And you haven’t, haven’t even read the Bible,
And you’re frightened, frightened to question anything.
So what have you done for me?
What have you done for me?

I’m not saying, saying that there is no force,
I’m just saying, saying thoughts responsible.
And we’ll pay for it in the end.

Our Creator Endowed Us With Natural Rights

Our Creator Endowed Us With Natural Rights

Put together/written by Kerry Walker

I state herein that the People must take matters about government and its relationship to the People back to the Declaration of Independence (DOI), which sets forth, according to the Laws of Nature (which is universal and undeniable), that relationship. According to nature, mankind (the People) is created by the Creator and endowed with natural rights-- not asked for, but existing as being part of the human species. Again, this is according to nature-- regardless of religious belief, or any government-- domestic, foreign, or international.

The Declaration describes the natural relationship between "man" (I'll use the term "People") and government thusly: "That to secure these [natural] rights, governments are instituted among men [among the People], deriving their [government's] just powers from the consent of the governed [the People]." AGAIN I say this is according to the Laws of Nature. Now comes the question, "HOW do the People institute government?" The DOI doesn't direct the specifics on "how" but it does set forth that it's the People that are to institute (create) government FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE of securing their natural rights. That much is established by the DOI.

True-- the Constitution doesn't mention the DOI. Perhaps it should have. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that the DOI is the authority FOR a Constitution by the People, since that is the manner by which the People (actually the states on behalf of the People-- and it has to be "on behalf of the People" since the People is/are the origin of authority for the Constitution) chose to institute its government. The Constitution is the "How" which the People have chosen to institute government in this country. It would have been nice if the Constitution mentioned the DOI as being the authority by which the People created it, but that isn't the only defect it has. Be that as it may, the facts are still there-- whether mentioned or not-- and we must deal with the Constitution as written and theoretically "ratified."

The People can't really go beyond "ratification" because that's when the door opened up for the fraud to pour in, since there was no enforcement provision written into the Constitution as a specific spelled-out process by which the People could have independently prevented the government fraud from happening. "Bind them down with the chains of the Constitution"? Government wasn't "bound" at all, as it should have been.

You get into "Principal/Agent" discussion—There can be no denying that by nature, the People would be likened as the "Principal" (the authority for government) and government the "Agent" (the protector, the guardian) of the People. While it is also the nature of people to be ignorant and lazy regarding legalities, even of their own natural status as being the true sovereigns over government, that does not take away from the fact that THAT IS THE PEOPLE'S NATURAL STATUS whether they exercise it or not-- that status is unalienable –inborn.

You say I don't know of any legitimate agency which can operate outside the knowledge and intention of the Principal. That would be true in normal business. However, with reference to the People, we're dealing with the status of a naturally-created being in relation to the People-created government. Only human beings created by an energy of Creation can take on that natural status, and only in relation to their People-created government. Relationships between Human A and Human B do not consist of that natural status-- a status that exists despite People's knowledge, acceptance, and exercise of it. Organized beliefs and the rejection of this energy behind creation, which are sides of the same coin, interferes with the natually-created being and the Laws of Nature, and therefore that natual status. Our Founding Fathers were adament about the separtation of established religion and the state and for good reason.

That's why we need men (and women), among the People, to represent them and their interests. That's supposed to be the role of government, --and the ONLY role-- to protect the People's rights because it is suggested that they don't have the knowledge, awareness, or skills to protect themselves in society, whether because they are lazy or otherwise. There IS a proper place for government, but it's imperative that it be People-centered, not self-centered. The Framers knew that government would be prone to become self-centered, but they did not provide a means for the People-- not a government function-- to keep that from happening.

And the Clueless and aimless can not be Principal or governing.
So the term "consent of the governed" is admission of an inferior status...akin to servants; The "consent" a slave gives his master. No, that can't be, as a matter of nature. There has to be a minority of the People, operating independently as the People, knowledgeable and cognizant enough to be able to monitor the actions of government, to keep it in line with its fiducial functions for the People. It obviously can't be ALL of the People, because most of them ARE ignorant, lazy, "clueless," and "aimless." But that doesn't negate the fact that they are the governed, spoken of in the DOI, and their interests must be protected by the government, and that "government protection" must be monitored by a segment of the People who ARE informed, "clued in," astute, alert, aware, of what was intended for this country as established by the DOI. That segment cannot be brainwashed, intimidated, deceived, or fooled into thinking that "government is the friend of the People." (You know-- "We're the government, and we're here to help you!")

We must examine the fact that our founding fathers were deist and not orthodox “Christians” as so many believe.

The Founding Fathers of American Independence were largely…

Catholics Christians Protestants Deists

"One of the embarrassing problems for the early nineteenth-century champions of the Christian faith was that not one of the first six Presidents of the United States was an orthodox Christian."--The Encyclopedia Britannica, 1998, p. 420

Some people today assert that the United States government came from Christian foundations. They argue that our political system represents a Christian ideal form of government and that Jefferson, Madison, and others, had simply expressed Christian values while framing the Constitution. If this proved true, then we should have a wealth of evidence to support it, yet just the opposite proves the case. Although, indeed, many of America's colonial statesmen practiced Christianity, our most influential Founding Fathers broke away from traditional religious thinking. The ideas of the Great Enlightenment that began in Europe had begun to sever the chains of monarchical theocracy. These ideas of freedom to understand all creation spread throughout early America. Instead of relying on faith through belief, people began to use their sense of wonder and use reason and science as their guide. The humanistic philosophical writers of the Enlightenment, such as Locke, Rousseau, and Voltaire, had greatly influenced our Founding Fathers and Isaac Newton's mechanical and mathematical foundations served as a grounding post for their scientific reasoning. A few Christian fundamentalists attempt to convince us to return to the Christianity of early America, yet according to the historian, Robert T. Handy, "No more than 10 percent-- probably less-- of Americans in 1800 were members of congregations.

"The Founding Fathers, also, rarely practiced Christian orthodoxy. Although they supported the free exercise of any religion, they understood the dangers of religion. Most of them believed in deism and attended Freemasonry lodges. According to John J. Robinson, "Freemasonry had been a powerful force for religious freedom." Freemasons took seriously the principle that men should worship according to their own conscience. Masonry welcomed anyone from any religion or non-religion, as long as they believed in a Supreme Being. Washington, Franklin, Hancock, Hamilton, Lafayette, and many others accepted Freemasonry. It is interesting to note that the modern day Twelve Step Program also has its foundation in allowing a freedom from religion and to allow one to come to his or her own concept of a Higher Power or God as we understood him (or it). The Constitution reflects our founder’s views of a secular government, protecting the freedom of any belief or unbelief. The historian, Robert Middlekauff, observed, "the idea that the Constitution expressed a moral view seems absurd."

There were no genuine evangelicals in the Convention, and there were no heated declarations of Christian piety.

George Washington
Washington revealed almost nothing to indicate his spiritual frame of mind, hardly a mark of a devout Christian. In his thousands of letters, the name of Jesus Christ never appears. He rarely spoke about his religion, but his Freemasonry experience points to a belief in deism.After Washington's death, Dr. Abercrombie, a friend of his, replied to a Dr. Wilson, who had interrogated him about Washington's religion replied, "Sir, Washington was a Deist."

John Adams
Adams, a Unitarian, flatly denied any connection between the fledgling government and organized religion, as seen in his "A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America" [1787-1788]."The United States of America have exhibited, perhaps, the first example of governments erected on the simple principles of nature; and if men are now sufficiently enlightened to disabuse themselves of artifice, imposture, hypocrisy, and superstition, they will consider this event as an era in their history. Although the detail of the formation of the American governments is at present little known or regarded either in Europe or in America, it may hereafter become an object of curiosity. It will never be pretended that any persons employed in that service had interviews with the gods, or were in any degree under the influence of “Heaven,” more than those at work upon ships or houses, or laboring in merchandise or agriculture; it will forever be acknowledged that these governments were contrived merely by the use of reason and the senses.Also in that document, he goes on to write:"...Thirteen governments [of the original states] thus founded on the natural authority of the people alone, without a pretence of miracle or mystery, and which are destined to spread over the northern part of that whole quarter of the globe, are a great point gained in favor of the rights of mankind.

James Madison
Called the father of the Constitution; Madison had no conventional sense of Christianity. In 1785, Madison wrote in his Memorial and Remonstrance against Religious Assessments:

"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution." "What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not."

Benjamin Franklin
". . . Some books against Deism fell into my hands. . . It happened that they wrought an effect on my quite contrary to what was intended by them; for the arguments of the Deists, which were quoted to be refuted, appeared to me much stronger than the refutations; in short, I soon became a thorough Deist."Dr. Priestley, an intimate friend of Franklin, wrote of him: "It is much to be lamented that a man of Franklin's general good character and great influence should have been an unbeliever in Christianity, and also have done as much as he did to make others unbelievers"Thomas PaineThis freethinker and author of several books, influenced more early Americans than any other writer. Although he held Deist beliefs, he wrote in his famous The Age of Reason:

"I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my church. " "Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more un-edifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory to itself than this thing called Christianity."

It may very well be a complete waist of my time, again, to suggest to you that you should study some American History. I suggest a book called Common Sense by Thomas Paine.

I’m not sure, but I think you would find this book to be very interesting. They have a special printing of it at Barns and Noble Booksellers, and it sells for only $3.95.

“Common Sense became the moral and intellectual touchstone for the American colonist struggling for independence from England. It sold over 120,000 copies within three months of its publication in 1776.

The United States of America owes its existence in part to the incendiary brilliance of the work. In presenting his case to the American colonist that a break with England was not only inevitable and justified, Thomas Paine convincingly argued that the time for debate was over and that it was now time for the American colonist to raise arms. He ventured the judgment that in a war with England, America would emerge the victor.

The striking phrases and clarity of vision of Common Sense continue to resonate with readers today.”

This man’s insight into God or Truth, or this energy behind all creation, was incredible. Yet those of Orthodox Religion that brought with them the stern doctrines and attitudes of belief systems, would serve to imprison him and to destroy him. Because of the lies perpetuated by Orthodox Christians, “Paine would carry to his death the reputation of an atheist---wrongly, for he did not deny the existence of God, only the divinity of (the orthodox view) of Jesus Christ. Although his views on religion were not so uncommon, for nearly all the most prominent American Founding Fathers were known to admit in private to beliefs resembling Paine’s, the ardor with which he attacked Christian pieties and their supposed ground in the Bible was new and startling.” His explicit expression of questioning the orthodox beliefs roused the “faithful” to fury and earned Paine an enmity that destroyed the good reputation he enjoyed for his earlier activities in behalf of the American cause.

The sad truth is that those that did not live by the love of God and Truth but chose the path of orthodoxy, brought the stead fast violence of their conditioned minds with them, and set out to unleash their wrath on Paine in the name of their orthodox beliefs, which history writes as termed the “Christian faithful”. His health, never firm after his imprisonment, was failing. Because of the mistreatment and malnourishment he suffered in prison, he rarely could summon sufficient energy to address the issues of the day and social isolation from those wanting to bring him harm only increased his misery.

Abe Lincoln
In a SPECIAL ISSUE of TIME magazine, July 4, 2005 Issue, there was a noble work done called “Uncovering the Real Abe Lincoln”. There had always been stories circulated about him being a doubter of “religion”, “but Republicans saw him as a great asset and tried to build a myth that would last—and do the party lasting good. In May 1865, the Republican editor Josiah Holland interviewed the President’s law partner William Hendon at length. When the subject of religion came up, Herndon told him, ‘The less said, the better,’ doubting that the pious Holland would want the details of Lincoln’s unorthodox history. How, for example, Lincoln had doubted the divinity of Christ and the infallibility of the Bible. “Oh, never mind,” Holland said. “I’ll fix that”—and his book made Lincoln a model Christian.

Here is an excerpt from the beginning of the first chapter of Thomas Paine’s work:



Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness positively by uniting our affections, the latter negatively by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last is a punisher.

Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer…

“There is one principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep man (and woman) in everlasting ignorance, and that principle is contempt prior to investigation.”


History is full of the evil of those that have their beliefs rooted in religion, and here we are in this new century with this same nonsense prevailing. It is not until we are free from the stranglehold of religion that we can operate in a natural state of intelligence that goes beyond self, and the freedom thereof, and is of a natural goodness. The natural capacity of the human being that has gone beyond thought is to be good. The Constitution and the DOI was founded based on this principle. Look at our society today and ask yourself if this culture with its beliefs in this bizarre religion is working? Ask yourself how you beliefs in religion have changed you and made you a threat to everything that is corrupted and harmful to mankind? Look at how those that are rooted in belief will justify harm to another human being in the name of that belief. It is time that the People stood up against this continued pressure of our culture to so impose these conditioned belief systems, and to judge those that don’t subscribe to this orthodox nonsense as being immoral. Most secular studies on neurosis, psychosis, and moral integrity have centered on the fact that the mind that believe in religion is the dangerous mind, and not the mind that questions it. I am convinced that the belief in organized religion and this concept of a personal god is the major cause of corruption and wrong behaviors on this earth as it is untrue. I am not in conflict with anyone that has any other belief system then mine, but these orthodox “Christians” or those with any orthodox belief system may be in conflict with me. I am not in denial here and I know that you will probably not understand the truth of what I say, but the sad reality is that your unwillingness to look into your conditioning and go beyond it will certainly bring about the destruction of mankind.

Anything dealing with "international" this or that in the Constitution must be examined by the People. Is it in compliance with the principles set forth in the DOI? The People can't get wound up in the "Corporate U.S." trap. As I said, there's a ton of fraud, corruption and deceit that has taken over this country, and 200+ years of it is enough! We have to clean up the cobwebs of fraud and deception that has clogged our minds. For the sake of freedom in this country, get out of that deceptive thinking!

The mind that is effortlessly whole and un-fragmented and has ended all ambition with any motive to manipulate or bring harm to anything or anyone is a mind that has absolved the self completely and no longer believes in organized religion.
Kerry Walker

"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness, that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel."

Thomas Paine

Organized Religions are Evil

Organized Religions are Evil

One has come to the realization that the Christian religion is false and is therefore evil. When I use the word evil, I mean it in the sense that it builds the illusions of the self. For if any religion is false it must by its mere projection of illusion on human beings create evil. One must then come to the realization that all religions are false and therefore evil. These religions will only contribute to the separation of man from man in creating conflict and not brotherhood. Organized Religions have brought great harm throughout history and they will bring about the degradation of mankind and of planet Earth itself.

The Hobgoblin of Little Minds

The Hobgoblin of Little Minds

In having come to an awareness of absolute reality it is odd to see how those that call themselves “Christians” and that believe in the bible and all kinds of bizarre nonsense, such as Jesus Christ, are the very people that are perpetuating this bizarre and unjust legal system.

Then the people that are fighting the injustice in their on little world by fighting their own specific self-centered battle, are, for the most part, “Christians” and they possess the conditioning of beliefs that we are all “sinners” and that “the end of time is near” because there are earthquakes and this or that nonsense, and on and on. These people think they are doing something for someone by doing nothing more than praying for them. Pray for a starving child to get food, and nothing more, the child will starve to death. Give the child food and the child will may live. Pray for a person rolling a heavy bolder up a steep hill that continues to get steeper and steeper, and the bolder may roll back and crush the individual, but if everyone pitched in and helped to push the bolder up the hill, then the bolder will not crush the individual.

There are all of these people that don’t want anything to do with this bizarre system and that justify the actions from it are also “Christians” and live in their little shell of illusion with the “anti Christ” and “Satan” nonsense and all the rest of it.

Being a man that has died to self and come to this absolute goodness with its clarity of observation, it is very bizarre to listen to these people ramble on in their utter confusion and ignorance. If only they could understand what little twits they are in this world where there is a direct observation and the observer is not separate from the observed. This is the only means to being integrally intelligent, an intelligence that has surpassed the beliefs of these little minds, minds rooted in conditioning and programmed to say this and quote that, by hundreds or possibly thousands of years.

By Kerry Walker

When we look at the religions of the world, it seems a bit odd that we continue to believe in these belief systems. There are several different religions and there are several so-called Holy Scriptures on this planet. The simple fact is that there is no way that all of these “bibles” with their many religions can be right.

When dealing with this subject, we must first deal with the fact and the reality of conditioning. The mind is likened to a computer in that it can be programmed or conditioned to believe a certain way. The difficulty lies in observing this conditioning and being capable of looking without this conditioning. This is simply an ability to look with an open mind.

First of all let me point out that I’m not denying this energy behind creation, nor am I denying the existence of a man called Jesus. What I am doing is looking into what thought has created and interpreted in the hands of man.

When we look at the western bible or the Christian bible, we start with a story of creation, called Genesis, and in this story god created the beast of the field, all the birds, and all the stars. It also states that when god created each of these things, he saw that they were good, which means if they were not good he could have simple tried again. This god supposedly has infinite power and his power never diminishes, and then this god creates man out of the dust of the soil. He then takes a rib out of man and creates women. This god has both of these beings placed in the Garden of Eden, and this god tells them that they shall eat of every tree in this garden, but that they shall not eat from the tree of good and evil. Now, we must consider the fact that god had created man out of his own image, and that, at this point, man knew not good and evil. Therefore neither one of them, Adam or Eve, would have known deceit. So when this talking snake came out and told Eve to eat of the tree of knowledge and she would be as Gods, and know good and evil, she would simply have not known not to believe him. She knew not deceit. So she ate of the fruit and she gave unto Adam, and he did eat, and for this god condemns his creation. Why didn’t god just start over and try again.

Then we have this story of a woman that was married at the time, yet she was a virgin, and this virgin was overshadowed by the shadow of god and impregnated with his sperm. This woman has a child, although she was a virgin, and this child is believed to be God’s son. Then we believe that this one man was sent by this infinite God to save the world from God’s original blunder of creation. If I look at this with an open mind and without any fear whatsoever, I think I would have to be a little odd and a little stupid to buy into it. This fact is I am 100% sure that this story is not true, and that it is an invention of thought, just like Casper the friendly ghost and Peter Pan, yet this world operates to a large extent based on this belief system. Some 86% of Americans claim to believe in this nonsense.

When considering all this we must also consider the fact that we have the highest rates of homicide, child molestation, violent and non-violent crimes, domestic violence, rapes, drug abuse and alcohol abuse, suicide, corruption, and a terrible judicial system, with a circus for a political system. We have this belief that we go to heaven and that thought continues to operate there in a virtual paradise with all of our loved ones joined together and doing things together. Yet we have this strange practice of putting humans in cages for long periods of time in some of the most unhealthy and unproductive environments imaginable. Do you really believe this? I wonder if those guys would have flown those planes into the Twin Towers had they not had this belief of heaven or paradise. Most people do not know what to believe, they just want their child to go to heaven.

The fact is I question and I am convinced that thought does not continue when we die. This does not mean that there is no energy that continues, only that thought does not continue. In other words your loved ones and all your ancestors for thousands of years are not looking down on you. You may say that this is a rather cynical way to see this, but reality is not cynical. The “what is” is the most sacred thing. If we realized that this was life and that there was nothing else to continue as thought, then life here would be even more sacred and important. I would love you because you are a human being, and not because of some stupid belief system. All beliefs are based on separation and conflict, though they may preach brotherhood. There have been some ten thousand wars in the name of Christianity, and the insanity has not ended yet.

Religion is Bullshit

I'm happy to find a site that understands that religion is bullshit. I think if anyone studied the bible from cover to cover with an open mind, they would have to be both a little bit odd and a little bit stupid to believe in it. It is simply their conditioned minds that "accept" it as true, and with this conditioning they are afraid to simply look at what this book actually contains. The bible is actually a very retched book. It is so very strange to me that we live in a world at this time in history that people still believe in these organized religions. I'm convinced that these religions and their belief systems are the major cause of wars, violence, and wrong behavior on this cool planet we call Earth.
