HARD TO BELIEVE

15 Oct

So, here’s how it goes…

A creator that has no creator, exists in no place or time, can do anything he or she wants, an almighty we have never seen yet we feel and believe in, for some unknown reason created EXISTENCE. He or she started by making an infinite universe. A light year is the distance light covers in one year, and in just one second, light goes around earth and back 7.5 times. It takes a hundred thousand of those light years to cross our galaxy alone, and our universe has hundreds of billions of those galaxies… I know, pretty freaken infinite, right! God or whatever you call him, the creator, made Heaven, a place where you can live eternally in lush gardens and flowing rivers, and where all your dreams come true. He or she then made angels, incredible beings that are purely there to worship God, and made a couple of humans, Adam and Eve. One of the angels went bad and became the devil, which lead to the creation of Hell, a place where everything is burning and….. Just really bad. Eve tempted Adam to eat some forbidden apple, oh yes did I forget to mention that God left Adam and Eve in Heaven and asked them to enjoy everything except this one freaken apple (no clue why), and they were banished to earth, where they are to start a whole race of humans.

Now, on earth, these guys having nothing else to do, just started going at it like maniacs, and here we are… Oh no, that’s not all….

As they populated a whole planet, these two very busy and very tired individuals (I mean what a libido) realized that they were not the only beings sent down here, but God has also sent that bad angel, the devil. Yes, earth really was the detention spot of existence.

So, here we are, humans, we live on this tiny minute planet that almost does not exist when compared to the vastness of space, we are constantly tempted by evil (the devil) and good (God). We come as babies, helpless and dependent on others, we grow up and go through school, playing sports, falling in love, heart breaks, sadness, happiness, friendship, work, career, marriage, having kids, and eventually getting old and back to being helpless and dependent on others once more. Some people are born into wealth and their parents rent cruise ships for them to have a birthday party and some work on the cruise ships to put food on the table for their families. One million kids died in the former republic of Congo from preventative diseases like the typical ear infections babies get, because they could not afford the 15 cents per child, needed to buy antibiotics, while P. Diddy bought his son a $360000.00 Maybach for his 16th birthday (nothing wrong with that, just worth mentioning).

Most of us believe in the same God but have different names for him or her, and even though we all agree that God is good, somehow we always end up using our belief to hate, judge, fight, and discriminate against one another. We have religions that all say the same thing, don’t kill, don’t, steel, don’t hate, but we translated that to WAR. Our wars have also been about money, which is a piece of paper that we assigned a value to. We are so advanced we have sent robots to the Mars, but some of us, humans, still discriminate based on color, gender, and sexual orientation, oh and women are not allowed to drive on Mars…sorry…. I mean in Saudi Arabia…oooops.

Any way, after that we die… Yes I know you hate that word, nevertheless, it will happen. Every body dies, and goes back to God who will judge you based on your actions… All of what we have done, good and bad gets weighed, and based on the results you get to move to your next, more permanent residence. By the way, God supposedly knows the future and he already knew what each of us is going to do on this earth before he or she is even born, so why this whole judgment day thing? Anyway…

If you have more good than bad, you go to heaven and live there forever, and yes you are supposed to be as happy as can be, because of the lush gardens and stuff, and all your dreams that will come true.

If you were a jerk and your bad weighs more than your good, well, you get to burn in Hell forever…. Literally…. I mean it!

We have no idea why some kids are depressed over loosing their hair due to chemo while others are depressed because their hair is not quit like Justin Biebers’ or Hannah Montana‘s.

Somehow we are able to make sense of all of this madness. To us this is just life, and we try to hold on to it so dearly.

My question is, why is Santa clause, the Easter bunny, or the tooth fairy, so hard to believe in?

If you stop for a second and think about all the crazy, unexplainable, weird, and completely illogical aspects of this life that we live and believe in, a fat guy in a red suit flying around on a reindeer to give toys to kids, doesn’t sound that fictional. Compared to life, it actually sounds pretty reasonable and nice.

My brothers and sisters we live in a place where for Hell there is a Heaven for night there is a day, for light there is darkness, and for good there is evil, a place where for every positive there is a negative…. Doesn’t a plus and a minus add up to zero, and that’s just it…. may be this whole thing is just too crazy to be real. Maybe LIFE  just adds up to a big fat nothing… or is that hard to believe?        (+)  + (-) = 0

NOT FAIR, NOT RIGHT, NOT LOGICAL,…..RAPE

28 Sep plant an idea

I imagine that from the title you already realize that this is one of my RANTS. It is very hard for me to witness something not fair, not right, not logical, and not say anything about it. It is also very hard for me not to admit that the more I think about the two genders the more I realize how us MEN have really abused our position in life.

One topic that has been bothering me recently is that of RAPE.

What would you do if one day, while at a coffee shop, a van pulls up next to where you are sitting, and in a “MISSION IMPOSSIBLE” style, four beautiful women emerge, forcefully kidnap you, drive you to a safe house, and rape you for hours before releasing you ?

This was the question I asked ten guys. the responses were …. well you judge.

“Get on the phone and call all my friends”, “Ask them for their phone number”, “Offer to pay for the van rental next time”, “Would be incredible as long as I was able to keep up with all four”, etc…..

Even though ten men are by no way a good representation of the all men, and even though I hate generalizations myself, yet believe me such a scenario would be a dream come true for most men.

When I tried to ask that question to ten women, in some cases I wasn’t even allowed to continue the question, some were really offended at how horrible of a question this was, one cried, and most expressed utter disgust and fear at the idea.

Yes, to any woman, rape is probably the closest experience to death, in fact many would wish for death instead.

All of this leads to my question:” How fair, how RIGHT, and how logical is it that a male gets to judge a rapist, when a male cannot fully comprehend the crime of RAPE?

Men have no clue as to the relationship between a woman and her body. A woman’s body reacts to her emotions, while a man’s body reacts in a much more mechanical and chemical way. Women’s feelings, emotions, and body act as one unit in responding to stimulation, while a man’s body reacts to stimulation independent of his feelings and emotions which can only act as enhancers when present. Simply, women are in control of their bodies while men are, to a certain extent, controlled by them. That is why, even though a man might know how bad RAPE is, but he might never fully understand the effects of such a crime on a woman. That is why RAPE, to one gender, is a death sentence, yet to the other it could be something to brag about. Steeling is bad, but shop lifting is not as bad as robbing a bank, and if you don’t know which steeling did the thief commit, you are in no position to pass a fair judgement on him or her.

I do apologize for generalizing so much, and I do hope that you know I don’t mean to picture men as mechanical feelingless beasts, however, I do know that the way we relate to our bodies is much more primitive and mechanical than women do. I also know that if laws pertaining to RAPE were not mostly written and enforced by men, RAPE would not have been as prevalent as it is today…… we know it’s really really bad, but not how bad it really is.

RAPE is not fair, not right, not logical, and neither is allowing a gender that does not fully comprehend it, to deal with it.

A World Within Another

27 Aug My IPAD Art

A world within another.
A thought for which you don’t bother,
Think it, nor speculate,
Which world do you populate?

Are they all part of yours?
Or did you walk in through their doors
Maybe we are all just a part,
Of some one else’s hanging art,

Finding out would be a defining moment,
Of this predesigned life’s enrollment,

But you do not think it nor speculate,
Which world do you populate?

The Biggest Scam Of The Past Centuries

27 Aug HEARTS

Yes …believe it …small rodents were able to survive natures havoc when big and angry dinosaurs were not able to.
Nature’s process of selection and elimination has chosen small mammals over the big and mighty dinosaurs for survival. In the same fashion, life’s process of selection and elimination has been playing a big role in the lives of human beings.
At one point in time, when body size and muscle mass played a big role in the everyday lives of the primitive humans, men gained the edge. Life in caves, demanded physical strength, the ability to hunt, fight, and defend. The importance of such genetic characteristics that put men in power way way back in the day has been dwindling, yet men are still riding that ship that has long sailed.
When was the last time have you or me walked to a job interview and were asked to see how big your triceps are, or how fast can you run.
In today’s world, sensitivity, attention to details, emotional openness, and multitasking are the characteristics that might land you a good job or allow you to run a company more efficiently.
Not only that, but are all characteristics that come naturally to women, while men struggle to attain.
We, men, as hard as it is to admit, are still holding on to power on the basis of ancient advantages that the world no longer needs. A fact evident even in the most successful of us. The now a days image of successful men, is a smoother, sharper, more sensitive man, and not the HULK.
If women were to wake up to the fact of their superiority, sooner than later we will be forming masculinizim groups and demanding more equality for men.
It’s actually pretty crazy that this has not happened yet. When are women going to realize that they are the iPad 2’s of the world and men are the iPad 1?
When are they going to catch us in our lies and realize that, no the iPad 1 does not rule anymore as cool as it might have been when it first came out.
Yet, please understand that loosing that position of power is also a natural thing. When a gender gets to be in control and gain the edge, the need for evolving becomes less and less, as they are already were they want to be. Yet at the same time, women kept evolving at a much faster rate than us, I mean after all they are the ones that had to deal with all the obstacles we have put in their way. That’s how one becomes better not by being in power but by having the need to overcome hardship
As such, I do have one advice for my beloved women: if you were to ever to become aware of the biggest scam of the past centuries, that men are in charge, and assimilate your true and well deserved position in this new world, please don’t use your advantage as us men did, i.e. to put others down. Truth is if we only acted on such advice, both genders would have complemented and completed each other, forming a much better world, but we didn’t.
I do apologize to all my fellow men … But I see this to be only the truth that has not caught up with us yet…. hey don’t be upset at me …I’m part of this too u know.
Thanks for reading.
