An Amusing Diversion

I can recommend this site for anyone looking for some amusement made all the funnier as it is at the expense of the dim-witted, superstious, irrational psychopaths who believe in some magick bogey man in the sky.

My only criticism of the site: it extends to theists more consideration than they extend either to each other or atheists.

Theology, The Practice of Ignorance

According to Dr Theodore Thinkelspein, "Theology... induces a dogmatic belief that we have knowledge where in fact we have ignorance, and by doing so generates a kind of impertinent insolence towards the universe." Couldn't have said it better myself, except to point out that as theology starts with the presumption that the premiss that the godhead exists is a given, it is already flawed as a meaningful enquiry into truth and reality. In other words, it's all a lot of bunkum!

Respect Me, Respect My Beliefs.


This is a depiction from the 1st century BCE of the god Cernunnos, who was also known as the 'Horned One' because of the antlers sprouting from his head. Cernunnos was worshipped throughout much of Western Europe as the god of nature, i.e. creation by another name, but the early christians claimed he was the Devil or Anti-Christ because he posed a threat to the claims that they made for their god.

So, next time some whingeing christians, jews, or muslims bleat on about respecting their beliefs, tell them that you worship Cernunnos and demand that they show you the same forbearance and toleration that they demand for themselves!

Go on, expose them for the hypocrites that they are. Should be good for a laugh, at least.

Glad To Be Godless

Not being a psychopath, I do not need to invent or believe in a magick force or being whom it is claimed allegedly created the cosmos and everything that exists in it; for this I am glad to be godless.

Not being a liar, or a swindler, or a duper of those intellectually less capable than myself, I do not need to profess to believe in a magick force or being whom it is claimed allegedly created the cosmos and everything that exists in it; for this I am glad to be godless.

Not being capable of of perpetrating the ignorance, bigotry, and the desire to control others, which are the quintessential aspects of those who claim to believe in a magick force or being whom it is claimed allegedly created the cosmos and everything that exists in it, I do not acknowledge the need to respect the views of those who support such wicked characteristics; for this I am glad to be godless.

I show respect to no-one and no-thing that does not demonstrate personal integrity, intellectual rigour, and the courage to exemplify these attributes; for this I am glad to be godless.

Gods are the inventions of those who would control you. Open your mind, think for yourself, and perhaps you too can one day claim that you are 'Glad To Be Godless!'

Sacrificium Intellectus

Sacrificium Intellectus: the sacrifice of the intellect, silencing the voice of reason in favour of blind faith is, according to Ignatius Loyola, the duty of those who believe in god. Though Loyola was a Jesuit, the followers of all religious cults and ideologies renounce reason with alacrity. These people are true misologists, haters of reason, a type excoriated by Plato and subsequently by Kant in his 'Critique of Pure Reason' and 'Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals', though he owes much to Bayle who argued in his 'Historical and Critical Dictionary' that religion is not preferable to atheism and that atheists can be morally upright members of society - a view sadly still denied today by the soi disant god-fearing dupes, weirdos, sickos, psychos, liars, fraudsters and swindlers who would like you to believe that their beliefs are paramount, and that we should respect them for no other reason than they claim to believe the vile and irrational nonsense which they spout.
