Fallacy of the Gods

Thank goodness people are praying for the victims.

For a moment I thought people weren’t going to do anything.

More killings in the name of religion…

Let us spare a minute or two and pray for them.

But who are you praying to?

To the almighty supreme being who let these people get murdered in horrendous circumstances in the first place?

To the almighty supreme being who instructed people to carry out the shootings and bombings?

If you’re praying to the one who let those people die, then I hope you realise that you are second guessing the almighty ones ineffable plan. That God let those people die… and you have the audacity to be angry and upset? You pray to him to end the terror?

If you’re praying to the one who instructed people to go off and murder men, women, children, in his name, then you’re just as deluded as the killers who say they do it for their God.

Looking through the old writings, gods were all powerful, all knowing. Creators of universes, planets, life…. Us.

Bringer of famines, floods, pestilence, disease, destruction… The one who has the power to bring people back to life, to cure blindness and leprosy, to make cripples walk again.

Powerful, all seeing, almighty.

And yet the omnipotent master of all he surveys, this supreme creator, this supreme being, has in modern times forgotten all of these amazing feats he can pull off himself, and instead uses puny humans to do his dirty work for him…

Why would a world creator send humans to murder other humans when he could just rain brimstone down on the sinners himself?

Why would an all powerful being let his people die today, yet he quite happily parted the seas himself to help others escape back in the good old days?

Why do you think their God is wrong? Why do you think they are bloody idiots for following such a stupid religion?

You know they think exactly the same of you? Why is their religion wrong yet yours is right?

People want weapons of mass destruction banned. They want smoking banned, they want guns banned, they want an end to violence and war, yet they don’t want to look at the biggest killer we’ve ever had on this planet…. Religion itself.

More people have been killed in the name of religion, or pretence of religion, than by anything else.

It’s all about whose imaginary, impotent God has a bigger dick than the other persons equally imaginary and impotent God.

Ban the God. Ban the religion. Take away the fuel and the fire will burn out.

Grow up and ditch the fairytales.

We could be visiting other planets on holiday, we could be driving around in flying cars, we could wipe out cancer and be living in peace with each other if we’d just drag ourselves away from the mythical gods of the dark ages.

We could have hoverboards, dammit.


The Cycling Mayor

When I was going through my childhood years I was lucky enough to have some of my best friends on the same street. One such friend was a girl who lived across the road from me. We did all the things kids would do – although some things stick in my memory… Like playing “Colony” on the ZX-Spectrum whilst listening to Paul Simon’s Gracelands!

She was always very talented (arts and music skills that astounded me – I only wished to be so good!). Even as a kid I knew that she was in a different class and would end up doing major things with her life!

Jennifer Trotman is currently the Deputy Mayor of Axbridge. In May 2009 she will become the Mayor (I knew it – I bloody told you she’d do major things with her life!). One of her activities is cycling – and she is now raising money doing this.

From her web page:

As Mayor of Axbridge, my nominated Charity will be Action Medical Research.

I hope to raise £2500 for them by cycling from London to Paris in July as well as raising further funds throughout the rest of my Mayoral year.

So without further ado I would like to do her a favour and spread the word of…


and get some money moving towards that good cause.
