The Delusional Catholic Cult

Fans of the former Pope, John Paul II, are work­ing hard these days in order to have him sainted. Among other require­ments, two witnessed ‘mira­cles’ are neces­sary for this to be achieved and the Catholic church, appar­ently, does not take this process lightly; being sainted is the utmost accom­plish­ment within this cult. One ‘mira­cle’ is […]

Thank 'God' we're not the center of the universe; we would all be dead!

Religion wants wo/​man to believe that s/​he is the center of creation and the center of the universe. Thankfully, this is completely wrong! Wrong, because we know now with the help of scien­tific progress since Galileo Galilei, that the universe is vast, expand­ing and we are not at its center. Thankfully, because of the effects […]

Is man God-made or is god man-made?

This post is mostly a commen­tary to a friend’s post at the Huffington Post: Beware Secular Fundamentalism, by Ed Gurowitz, Ph.D. I wanted to comment on the post, but real­ized I had too much to say to shoe­horn it into a comment field, hence this post. Ed has made an enor­mous contri­bu­tion to my life through previ­ous (lengthy) encoun­ters, and […]

Towards peace - Step 3 - Reset the clock

The saying ‘Be care­ful what you wish for, it may come true’ is based on two assump­tions: 1) the process of repeat­ing to your­self over and over until it becomes a mantra you subcon­sciously perform, very often mani­fests the desired outcome 2) the process is so power­ful, make sure you really want what­ever you want, other­wise […]

Towards peace - Step 1 - Death & taxes

The melt­down of the disas­ter that is the Catholic Church, makes this argu­ment almost compla­cent, but evil is hard to rid the world of, so let me add to this ‘idea who’s time has come’: Dismantling the delu­sions (Islam’s 72 virgins, Scientology’s Xenu), uncover all the child abuse (spread all over the world) and expose […]

The closest humanity can come to peace

In the post “Why peace is impos­si­ble on this planet”, I conclude that striv­ing for peace (what all peace orga­ni­za­tions around the world are doing) is the best we can do, which I stand by. However, there are two major contrib­u­tors to war that can be dimin­ished, after which the striv­ing will be a lot easier (no, war […]

Science's Greatest Challenge

There was a lot of stuff going on in the life of Stone Age wo/​man that s/​he couldn’t explain. For instance, where they them­selves came from orig­i­nally and where they went when they stopped living. So what do you do when you have no clue, and have to say some­thing to your offspring when they ask […]
