Old Faithful

Soldier, veg, humanist, atheist. Engaged to the most beautiful woman in the world and I couldn't be happier.

Whenever I see lobsters being sold in grocery stores (or anywhere else) it really breaks my heart. “…Lobsters are highly developed. They carry their young for nine months and, when left in peace, can live for more than 100 years. They recognize other individual lobsters, remember past aquaintances, and have elaborate courtship rituals. They take long seasonal journeys, often traveling for hundreds of miles. Elder lobsters help guide young lobsters across the ocean floor by holding their claws in a line that can stretch for many yards.” Heather Moore

I once paid a $70 for the last two live crabs at the seafood market, took them to the lake and set them free. Best $70 I ever spent. I hate this shit. I get people eat meat, and people like crabs and lobsters, but I can’t help feel sorry for them, they just wanna live their life man. You don’t need to eat them, you just want to eat them. Seriously when was the last time you were really hungry and was like ‘FUCK. I need a lobster’.

God dammit God.

So I’ve been thinking, if God was real- Christian god in particular… why has he chosen to reveal himself in toast, toilets, carpet stains, small voices in peoples heads, a book(s), obscure (often questionable) archaeological ‘evidence’, the ‘hearts’ of his believers BUT not through any quantifiable credible means that would leave us without any doubt. I mean surely he must know that people are going to want a little more than a carpet stain that looks like Jesus or a book with sketchy authorship and a never ending list of apocrypha*, like doesn’t the God of the universe have any fucks to give left? Is he content to let people wander around genuinely curious and demand their belief and unquestioning devotion, though the only proof his willing to deliver is highly questionable and with a measure of reasonable doubt?   

Like before anyone suggests that he can’t just appear because that would force us all to believe- well shit, you got me. 

I guess creating people KNOWING they were gonna fuck it up and then creating a hell to put them in isn’t a form of coercing people into believing? Like seriously- wouldn’t it make more sense to appear, before he had to flood the earth and do the saving of EVERYBODY then? No? I guess I don’t get his ways because his logic is clearly sounder than any rational humans. 

I’m sorry, for the nice guy (Nice Guy) that Jesus Christ is seems his dad (him) is a real poor planner, or isn’t sure what he wants. I wanna make people, no wait, I wanna kill them all, nah wait, I like some, I wanna kill some but not all, I wanna save Israel, nah screw them I’ll save everyone, nah wait, Israel, nah, wait, nah, wait, I’ll just destroy everything I made FUCK IT.

Tell me please, what was the point of making it in the first place, so as to knowingly put people into a situation that will land some of them in hell? Like is it a huge ruse to save the Christians and that’s it, everybody else is just a byproduct of saving a small portion of total humans to ever exist? Could this problem not have been circumvented through some prior preparation? 

Maybe he just wanted someone to love, but they were 1000s of generations away so he had to wade through shit to save them and burn the rest. Worth it I guess in that case. 

Honestly - Christian people, critically think this shit through, I was like you once 100%. I asked God for some solid reassurance, I got a face full of silence every time. Most times I said -you know what maybe he is busy, maybe he will call later….no his never called back. Rude. 

End- 

PS: Tony Abbott - quit using your religious ‘conviction’ to fuck the planet (climate change is NOT a conspiracy and IS a thing), and same sex couples will not destroy the universe by being recognized legally as married and they WONT threaten you or your lifestyle.

So is like the large use of umbrellas symbolically significant to the protests in Hong Kong, or is it just the smartest bunch of protesters ever?  

what do you mean by smartest bunch of protesters?

This protest could go for a while - better take an umbrella - fucking genius

“But it is when we OFFER our SUFFERING—the one thing most disagreeable to our human nature—back to the Creator, it becomes a GIFT of INESTIMABLE value; drawing down from heaven more grace than ANY other action we can possibly make.”

—   

Really? so like, if we aren’t suffering we should go out of our way to suffer? Because God loves it when we suffer and tell him that it is hard but that he is good right?

This quote pretty much translates to:


God - creates human nature

Demands they don’t listen to it.

Demands they go against what he made (which would be a sin?) us feel and suffer more so he can taste our salty tears of suffering and offer us the sweet hand of redemption. 

*WTF

"more grace than ANY other action we can make" ?

Like helping a fellow human is < than offering our suffering to God. Indeed ANY other positive and affirmative change we can make in this world is < continuing a cycle of suffering because God digs the credit he gets for being really good when things really suck.
