Picking and choosing. Often frowned upon. I mean follow any discussion involving athiests and religious folk. For anything a religious person might object to, be unsure about, have an opinion about, disagree with, they’re often given examples from their religious texts about other things and called hypocrites. But I want to ask the question, why? Does any athiest just blindly follow any scientific hypothesis? Does multiverse exist? What is consciousness? Are there 4 dimensions or 5 or 11 or 13? Is big bang the only explanation for start of universe? What about simulation theory? Is everyone who believes in that a fool or a hypocrite? No. Picking and choosing. How is that any different? Why can’t relgious folk pick and choose? Surely I am not defending here the right to inflict pain on others. Surely I know that people used Bible to justify slavery and crusades and Iraq war and what not. But that’s just being human. Ghengis Khan killed million and millions of people and I don’t think he was inspired by any religious text. So why this frowning upon picking and choosing? Anytime a religious person is against gay marriage or gay relationships, they bring out “oh then you shouldn’t easy fish or pork or that according to Bible Earth was created before the sun”. So in return religious people should just bring out “was it big bang? Or was it simulation theory? Or was it multiverse?”. Picking and choosing should not be frowned upon. It should be encouraged. You have full right to pick and choose how to live your life and what to believe in and what makes you feel happy. But and yes there is a big but, you should do that if and only if it doesn’t cause others pain. Often times people who are marching against gay marriages are same ones who’d be marching against immigrants. Sure I might be generalizing in my article as well. And it is wrong. I have met kind religious people and I have met arrogant rude non religious people. Your religion and lack there of dies not necessarily make you a morale authority or a good person. Your actions are what makes you a person. It’s not about your religion, not about your race, not about your beliefs,not about your creed, not about your social stature, it is only about the type of person you are on the inside. I have seen relgious people start holy wars and I have seen secular people start wars for materialistic gains. We’re all the same, regardless of color, creed, belief and race. Picking and choosing is essential to individual freedom and happiness. No, not all Christians have to follow every single in Bible and not every Muslim has to follow every single thing in Quran and not every athiest has to follow every single scientific theory or hypothesis! Humans are complicated and just forcing them all to be part of one or another is not the way! Forcing anyone is not the way! Our world is complicated, we still don’t know how life got created in the first place out of non living matter. In the same way humans are complicated, our minds are complicated, our life stories are individual and complicated, our pursuit of happiness is complicated. So what is the solution? Well I am but just a mortal man and I don’t know. I don’t know how to solve all crisis on Earth, I don’t know how to solve all our problems, I don’t know anything. But what I do know is that everyone should be free to pick and choose from their religious texts and their scientific hypothesis what makes then happy and what makes others around them happier and makes world a better place! Because I believe that in the end, it’s all about happiness and making people around you happy and make world a better place, full of love and harmony and peace.
This world in crisis, tension rising,
Tension rising on both side, its not surprising,
There is so much hate all around,
No one understands the real situation on the ground,
People blaming masses without knowing them,
Not even trying to understand, thinking they’re just blowing them,
They think there is no reason or rhyme,
They think they’re without any crime,
But that is not the reality,
It’s not just a brutal brutality,
What goes around comes around but they forget,
They think they’ll live forever, but they’ll regret,
The world is not black and white,
Hate is not a solution for this fight,
We kill their families with our drones,
So we cant hear hear their cries and moans,
But just because we can’t hear,
Doesn’t make it disappear,
When we don’t understand, we fear,
But remember karma is always near,
Yesterday we went to invade their lands,
Today we destroy under new brands,
Then we judge them when they flee,
We have eyes but we cant see,
Humanity is no where to be found,
Bombs exploding, we dont hear the sound,
Which direction are we moving in,
We have to stop this madness and look within,
People are people, people are everywhere,
Our colors different, but we have to be fair,
There is no black and white but there is evil and good,
We have to rise up and take control as we should,
It’s time to rise up and unite,
Stand up and fight,
Fight against oppression,
Fight against wars,
Fight against injustice,
Fight against corporations,
Fight against racism,
Fight against nazis,
Fight for fellow human being in need,
Fight! Just Fight!
So you are back at the same stop again,
Thinking about the same questions, still feeling the pain,
The mind singing, the pursuit, the pondering
The struggle, the loss, the wandering,
How to choose a path through so many choices?
How to find destiny through so many voices?
And the questions are never ending,
But I keep going on and pretending,
The fear of loss never leaves me alone,
Unable to let go someone who is gone,
And the empathy is out of control,
To the needy I want to give my all,
I once looked a man in his eyes and cried,
I feel for the living instead of the ones who died,
The suffering in world eats me inside,
Sometimes I want to join the rebels who defied,
The norms, the terrorists, the corrupts, the vip culture,
To slit their throats and open them up like a vulture,
Are these dark thoughts a necessarily evil?
Or find other ways to save the world that are more civil?
Why cant I stop hearing the screams?
Why do I suffer seeing those dreams?
Stop before I drop,
The voices wont go away,
They are for life to stay,
Now open eyes and see the world in grey,
Put on that smile and be gay,
The light will shine on you as bright as day,
Be positive and stay away from fey,
Fidelity is hard, its easy to betray,
But Its your life, you were just born this way.
A new threat to world security has risen, at least that’s what we are being told. And it might even be true, if you see the videos that are being posted online, of masked men beheading everything that moves under Gods green earth. The threat is real, the enemy is real, the beheadings are real, at least they appear to be real, although with advancements in video technology, in a world where we have Hollywood movies depicting huge dragons, where there have been proven false videos of Bin Laden, the idea of fake videos is not a giant leap. But lets assume it’s real, would we stop for a minute and ask why? Why the rise of ISIS? Have some people lost their god damn minds and started beheading? Is it mental illness? Some virus of insanity that’s spreading in middle east? Some vampire infection where they need to drink blood? Are they drinking blood after beheading people? Should we kill them or put them in hospital to be treated? Excuse my attempt of humour but I learnt in science that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so we have to ask ourselves, what is ISIS in reaction to? What’s the cause? You see the questioning is discouraged in the world we live in, we are just suppose to take their word for it. If you question, you are labelled a conspiracy theorist, terrorist apologist, and in some cases even called a terrorist. But questions we have and questions we should ask! Do they think that we don’t posses a mind? Do they think we are all stupid? Do they think we are all idiots? In a post-internet world where information flows freely on the web, they are truly kidding themselves if they think they can limit our knowledge. Do they think we don’t have the mental capability to connect the dots? Oh sir, but we do! Are we supposed to forget that Al-Qaeda was created by CIA? Are we supposed to forget Osama Bin Laden was a CIA agent and trained by them? Are we supposed to forget that suicide bombing was introduced to Islam by USA? Are we supposed to forget that Afghans were trained, armed and used by USA against Russia and then abandoned after the conflict was over in state of destruction and chaos? Or are we supposed to not know that 911 was an inside job? Do they think labeling us as conspiracy theorists is going to make us forget that fact? Or are we not supposed to know that the production of opium is at it’s highest after USA (“NATO” but lets not kid ourselves) took control of Afghanistan? Are we not supposed to know that US soldiers are cultivating and guarding opium and supplying it to the rest of the world? Or that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? That a million innocent people have been killed because of a war under false pretense? Or that tens of thousands innocent people lost their lives in Pakistan because of US drones? And now ISIS? So there are two possibilities, either it’s another creation of CIA to start new wars. “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me”. So are we going to get fooled into another war? Or the second possibility that it’s a reaction to the actions of the USA. The meddling in internal affairs of other countries and aiding their puppets to become the leaders of those countries. Both possibilities are plausible but what can we do?
WE, the silent majority of this world, need to spread awareness and educate more and more people about the reality of the world we live in, WE need to unite under the banner of humanity, WE need to fight for the truth, WE need to to rise up and ask these questions, because only then can we find the answers and expose THEIR true agenda.
