Just been browsing thru my messy files and spotted this little thingie. For reasons known only to the invisible force that told me, in no uncertain terms, Hey You Old Bag!!…..Get yer lazy arse over to your WordPress link and put something down in print. Been a long time since I’ve wandered into this little corner of my ‘puter. You know how that goes, right? Like, *Time flies when you’re having fun* or so “they” say.
Well, lemme tell ya, that is one large load of krapola. Time does NOT fly when you’re having fun, or in my case, not having any fun at all. So if I kvetch a little I have every right to do so, I mean what the heck…..this is MY blog, ain’t it? And if I want to moan, groan, kvetch and just generally act like a horse’s patoot, well, ….that’s the way it is…. Uh Huh, Uh Huh, I like it….blah blah (from the song whose words I do not know)
I had a total knee replacement a while ago. It seems like a very long time since that momentous occasion, but I think the actual dirty deed was done July 2009??? Well, that’s my big news for tonight. Ain’t nothin’ real exciting to talk about, actually. What I really want to discuss is [drumroll please]… my coming out. Finally. I am finally, and for real from this day forward, a true-blue, dedicated and happy ATHEIST. Whew, what a load off my back… LOL. Been feeling that way for years and finally said to myself — “Myself!– Get with it, you know you do not believe by any stretch of the imagination, in an invisible, never seen, never heard, big old guy who supposedly *created* this weeny little planet called Earth and for a couple thousand years homo sapiens have “worshipped” this entity. Before that, though, hominids quit dragging their knuckles and swinging from a banana tree and finally got up on their two feet and wandered around in search of a warm cave………..”Hey, I think we’re kinda on our own, Barnie Stoneman, got a match so we can make a fire?” I have no clue how these Neanderthal humans* discovered fire or even discovered icky-looking critters tasted better cooked than raw?? [note: y'all know that us speshul mammal-type "humans" share 98.8% of our DNA with the current primates, don'tcha?? They be our brudders and our sistahs, don'tcha know?] Hahahahaha
*Scientists, for reasons known only to them (I certainly don’t know), have decided the last of the “caveman” homo sapiens “Neanderthals” went kaput only 30,000 years ago, which is a very small drop in the bucket considering it’s known by every brainiac on the planet today that Earth was probably smashed together approximately 50+ BILLION years ago. Atheism is nothing new but its popularity for millions of people in this 21st century now is good news………means more and more people have realized LIFE and LOVE and HAPPINESS, along with contentment and so on…………has absolutely nothing to do with the myth of a “being” having been responsible for slapping this little planet together, complete with flora, fauna and, for starters, actual HUMANS. Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel, Lilith (Adam supposedly turned that gal into dust, though. Nasty guy!) I just found out that people who cling to their choice of religion don’t seem to notice, or care?, that even the Christian bible is a confusing mish-mosh of fairy tales and nonsense!
I watch a soap opera every day. I have for 30 years (“All My Children”) But when a fairy tale like the Christian bible declares that EVE was the mother of all, and her sons Cain & Abel married their sisters, and so on, it surpasses any corny soap opera on television in this century. The goofy story of Noah’s Ark. Good Grief!! For ANY rational human being to believe such a ridiculous story leaves me speechless…..Whew!
There are at least half-a-dozen very large, well-organized Atheist organizations, etc all over the Internet. Millions of perfectly normal, sane, obviously thoughtful people reject the notion that planet Earth was *created* by a mysterious entity called God. I don’t know a doggone thing about other kinds of “religion” around the world, but if that’s what makes them happy, what the heck, go for it. Just don’t think that being a *Christian* makes YOU any better a human being than ME. I believe in ME. For ME there is NO HIGHER POWER than my own conscience, my own morality and my own pursuit of happiness. The only result of your praying to an invisible deity for help or for whatever reason will be solved only by YOU and your own personal moral authority.
Putz. I like Prez JFK’s comment, just need glasses to read it, though. Bummer.
He is saying — “I believe in an America where the separation of church and
state is absolute” —- Gosh I sure did love that man!!
His wife, not so much. lol
