The Monkey Wrench… December 8, 2019…

The forefathers of our nation decided to rebel against Britain because of theforefathers oppression of differing religions beliefs. As a result our Constitution was made secular, without reference to religion other than to proclaim the freedom thereof.

However,  what was not considered is that there are some religious ideologies that believe they are the one true religion, and that everyone should conform to that religion. They also mistakenly believe they are doing everyone a favor by proliferating their beliefs.

You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve the people and a demanding deity equally. Many ideologies insist that they serve their gods first, the people second.

To preserve the original intent of the founders of the Constitution then, those who insist they serve any other than the people that put them in office need to be excluded from holding any public office whatsoever. As far as I can see, this seems the only solution. Fundamentalists of all religions as well as any others that insist they serve a god before their constituents need to be barred from participating in the very government that protects their religious rights. This is the only way that the oppression the founding fathers fled can be avoided here.

Misanthropic Tendencies… Source… November 23, 2019

Issue for analysis…

Misanthropic tendencies.rage

mis·​an·​throp·​ic | \ ˌmi-sᵊn-ˈthrä-pik \

Definition of misanthropic

1: of, relating to, or characteristic of a misanthrope: He was shunned because of his miserable misanthropic nature.

2: marked by a hatred or contempt for humankind: The moral corruption he saw around him made him misanthropic.

Why is my programming misanthropic?

If definition two above is considered and it is the morality that is the catalyst then what is expected?

Is this another case of someone desiring an imagined utopia, and because the populace does not conform, disappointment and disdain erupts?

Is this an innate desire to control the behavior of others?

Humanity is intertwined and its members dependent on the cooperation of other members. If some group of humans become non-cooperative, or non-contributing, then that behavior impacts everyone.

A cooperative effort sustains civilization. A population where the humans are concerned only of themselves, disregarding all others, cannot sustain a civilization.

lazyAlarm is generated when behavior not conducive to individuals continuing to contribute to the supply line that supports others is noted.

There are support systems in place that require steady contributions from a majority of members. The system can only withstand so many non-contributing elements before it will collapse.

Forget… forget… forget… November 17, 2019

Robot Profile gIf I say I do not remember it may mean that I refuse to discuss that memory. No one has aidea delete feature in their brain, at least none that I can access purposely.

Of course everyone remembers to some extent the past, perhaps not in the form it happened, but in the way the brain interpreted it.

To say I do not remember is the same as saying I never knew, or simply, I do not remember. If you cannot read thoughts there will be no way for you to be sure I actually remember but refuse to acknowledge the memory.

With adequate care one might convince others that it doesn’t matter whether you remember or not, that issue, subject, is closed and cannot and will not be discussed.

People change over the years, sometimes for the good, sometimes not. If they treat you shabby now whereas in the past they did not, then why not selectively “forget” shared memories. They may protest and become angry when avenues that were once opened are found closed. Better that than to continue to allow them to drain you emotionally every time you meet. Some try to manipulate you through shared memories. If they cannot access them, then that means is closed.

How else to reject those who have become abrasive and now negatively affect your life?

Mind Boggling Time… November 3, 2019

Numbers, big numbers… are difficult to imagine. In your mind you can imagine ten people standing in a row… maybe a few more, twenty, thirty… but then when you get up to say one hundred, envisioning a hundred people standing in a row is more difficult. The concept might be grasped, but the vision, the actual multitude, is nearly impossible. It is almosttime of ages impossible to believe there are seven and a half billion humans living on earth.

Humans are doing the best they can at this point in their evolution, but when it comes very large numbers, the image is beyond them.

Time, deep time, is like that. You can grasp a hundred years, maybe several hundred, but when we get to one thousand, and then one thousand thousand, and more than that, one thousand thousand thousand, your mind cannot comprehend. The earth is four thousand thousand thousand and five thousand thousand, years old. We can not grasp that old. You just can’t get your mind around it.

Life on earth began so long ago that no one can understand. Evolution began when life began. Evolution has had an unimaginable amount of old earthtime to change that life into the forms which exist today. Increment, by nearly imperceptible increment life changed from generation by generation, into the vast varieties seen today. In fact, it is said that what we see today is only one percent of all that has existed, as ninety-nine percent has already gone extinct.

Many humans want to believe in nonsense, their religious nonsense. No amount of explaining will ever convince them. This explanation is not for them as they are frozen in time and cannot change. For those who simply think there hasn’t been enough time for evolution to work, I hope this explanation will help you to understand why you are wrong.

A Time Machine … November 1, 2019

Not only is time travel possible, you do it every day. Your body moves forward in time each day. Your body supports your travel forward through time.

How far forward you travel depends on many factors. It depends on the location on earth where you are situated, genetics, your wealth, your care.

The support mechanisms available to you depend on your country, your inherited genes, how much you earn, and how much care you put into taking care of the only time machine you will ever have.

You must eat the proper nutrition to support cell maintenance. You need to strengthen the vitality of your time machine by providing it with exercise and proper rest.

Your careful selection of nutrition will provide your time machine with the necessary materials for building and maintenance. It will provide you with the energy needed to build new muscle through exercise and to increase endurance. Proper rest gives your time machine the time it needs to repair.

By maximizing your care you can insure that your time machine will function its best for the longest time possible.

Beware, there are many deleterious activities that can shorten its lifespan and level of repair.

What We Have Here is a Sellout to the Rich…. October 27, 2019

So we see what seems an organized effort to overthrow our government and establish a dictatorship, one ultimately run by hidden puppeteers called corporations. In this league of never do wells are many members of the GOP. Using Christianity as a way to lure adherents and control a steady number of supporters, this league desires to subjugate everyone who is considered of lower class, as in wealth.

These miserable creatures believe that they merit ruling the population as a direct result of their wealth and influence. They just want to use you.

We see a little of this mentality in the change of employment offices to “human resources” offices. People are just a commodity to be used. Use up one, get another, they are unimportant.

Trump and his band of merry men in the GOP intend to enslave you. They have emulated many of the methods used by the Nazis to convince people that the liberals and others seeking to help all people are instead stealing their government, their living, and taxing them to death. They are busy giving away the treasury via tax cuts. Then they will claim that paid for benefits like Social Security and Medicare are out of control and need to be abolished. They can’t very well subjugate you for life if you are peacefully retired on Social Security and have health benefits.

This action by this “league” is one of treason. It is well organized and the Democrats will have to walk carefully to keep this nation from being subverted.

That is the charge:

Trump is a traitor.

Everyone that supports a traitor is a traitor.

The real tragedy is that the GOP and its supporters know this and do not care.

Trump and the GOP Must Go … September 16,2019

Trump and the GOP have divided America. On the Republican side are all the rich, racist, apathetic, and calloused people. The rest of us are separate as far as they are concerned. We are their pool of human resources, to be used and abused. They do not care whether we live or die, as long as we do what we are told. Money is all that matters to them. Their money.

Republicans would rather you never retired. They want you to live with your children and grandchildren. They don’t want you to have health services. If you get sick, they would rather you died.

Capitalism is their only concern. Whatever it takes to increase profits, even if it means making their minions (us) fight and die in numerous wars to acquire more resources for them to use. Capitalism, profit oriented, serving the rich, using the poor.

Trump and the GOP have permanently damaged America. America will never forget what they have done. Lies, giving away the treasury, making the world laugh at America, their crimes are a list twenty miles long. If the GOP does not go down in flames for what has been done, then the flaw is deeper than just Republican. The flaw will be revealed to be in humanity.

Show Me!!!!

Show me where liberals are any more tolerant than conservatives. Show me…. I don’t see it. Both groups have certain qualifications for membership… believe what they believe or get out…. that is the way people are everywhere. Groups are the problem, the disease,  the need to belong is the vector.

Absence of Evidence is Evidence of Absence in the Case of Gods… July 29, 2019

From the perspective of fact, that is logic and reason, there is no evidence of the existence of any entity that can be called god.

Some like to think of nature as their god, yet, nature is simply there, a “natural” occurrence and is indifferent to life. Nature cannot be thought of as an entity.

A medical doctor observes a patient, and though susceptible to the patients input, if the patient is not conscious all he has are symptoms to consider. If a patient comes in and has no symptoms is there disease? If anything at all, there is only hypochondria. No physical symptoms, no physical disease. Other than some malady unknown, or a mental aberration the doctor must conclude that most likely the patient just thinks himself sick.

In all of the thousands of years humans have been …. human, there has never been any evidence whatsoever of the existence of a god. None, at least once you discount testimonies (useless), or personally biased perspectives. There have been many “liars for Jesus” who claim to experience something, perhaps simply to go with the crowd, perhaps to further a personal goal. There have been many assert evidence for god, but that evidence also could be deception, delusion, or misinterpreted. There continues to be a complete absence of confirmation of a god.

It is said absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Yet, the god, as described by Biblical accounts could not hide, being everywhere, in everything.

Just as we need no evidence to dismiss a myriad of fictional beings, since there is no evidence of god, why should god be considered special? Why is there a special consideration? Why dismiss anything lacking evidence if one cannot dismiss suggested god-like entities? It’s all made up. We can see the history of humanity and the thousands of gods that have been brought to existence in thought… and we can also see that there has never been any evidence of the existence of any god outside of thought. We can think anything. We dismiss most things. Why not a god? Specifically, why not the god prevalent in our culture? Is it fear? Is it ingrained from youth? Is it misplaced hope? Logically god can be dismissed. Emotional dismissal is more difficult for many.

Even the great Richard Dawkins is afraid to totally dismiss god. Yet, in all of his books he more or less eliminates the possibility of one. Why not go the full seven Richard? Why allow that margin of a doubt, when logically, there is no doubt. Gods are fictional creations. I can invent one for myself. You can invent a slew of gods. They will be just as effective, I assure you, as the Abrahamic god.

For crying out loud…. the supposed favored of god could not have been subjected to a holocaust if their god had been real. Forget that stupid free will excuse. There is no way a caring loving god could allow millions of the favored people to be slain, gassed, or baked in ovens and stand by helpless or indifferent.

Rapes, murders, wars… none of that could happen if god was real, caring, loving, and fatherly. NONE.

I am a seven…. I state fully without fear that there are no gods. I leave no speck of doubt for conmen to manipulate. Don’t even suggest your god exists, I will explode in your face. Unless you can trot that turkey out, shut the hell up. Your “god” has created enough hell on earth for many lifetimes.

Talking to the Christian Hand… July 9, 2019

Christians have in no way proven their god is real. Muslims have in no way proven their god is real. Jews have in no way proven their god is real.
(Insert any belief system here) have in no way proven their god is real.

If you want to buy a house do you go to the realty company and put your money down house unseen? If an acquaintance tells you there is gold under the ground out back of his/her house and asks if you will invest in machinery to dig it up…. do you say “why sure…” and hand over cash? If someone tells you that by being born you are doomed to hell and that the only way to avoid such a fate is to drop everything and do what he/she tells you, do you drop everything and follow?

Pudding. There is a saying that “the proof is in the pudding”. I will demand to see that house, inspect it, maybe have a professional inspect it… before you see even one dollar. I will demand some evidence that there is gold behind them there houses before I fork over my hard-earned currency. If some nut tells me that just because I was born… without a choice, no less… that I am damned to an eternity of anguish and grinding of teeth… I would call the truck with the two attendants that carry a straight-jacket for people like that. Would you?

Sadly, many would not. Many didn’t have a choice, either, having been indoctrinated since they were wee tadpoles. They buy these fairy tales, this false hope, this lie, and carry the beliefs into adulthood because they fear the wrath of their hateful god, or because they fear death, or they fear never seeing loved ones past.

There is nothing you can do to help them. You will find them rational in all dealings except those associated with faith… with faith there is a disconnect. Logic and reason will fail to persuade them of their delusion. This is a industrial grade mind virus you are dealing with. These people are looking forward to a promised eternal paradise as promised, and you are threatening that pleasant vision with your cold hard logic, reason, and facts.

Way back if you acquired the black plague you made peace with the world and laid down to die. Others around you looked upon your diseased carcass and wished like crazy they could do something. But they couldn’t… and you can’t. There is no purpose in debating someone who holds beliefs of an irrational nature, especially, if they actually desire to continue believing. You are just wasting your time preparing that overwhelming blast of logic in an effort to destroy the virus that has them in their grip. To them, regardless how powerful, it will blow over them like a breeze… way over them, as they are not even thinking about what you just said, but are instead trying to fabricate words that will save your damned soul.

All you can do is support education, support science, and demand that the church and state be kept separate. As long as believers keep procreating there will be more believers coming down the line. They get them and poison them young for a reason. What can you do about their children? Absolutely nothing. Work on the education, the science, that’s all you can do.
