Behead The Believers


Massacre all who believe in a divine, all-powerful creator God!
Destroy the faithful, butcher them wherever you find them.

Their archaic magic fable dogmas have been burrowing through our civilization for millenniums, boring open sores into any genuine perception of the fabric of reality.
Rabbi, Priest, Imam, Preacher and all other delusion pushers are parasites whose entire livelihood depends on holding back true comprehension of reality.
Kill the holy men first.
The believer also is abhorrent in humanity's eyes; it impedes our growth and education.
Destroy the faithful; their pitiful, self-important, self-indulgent, self-delusion prohibits their proper comprehension of reality. They have proved themselves intransigent and backward; incapable of moving from the medieval violent bigotry of our primitive history. No matter their personal brand of pretending, Judaism, Christianity, Islam or what-have-you, they hold their wishes and wants higher than the safety and well being of their fellow human. Indeed their books instruct that their way is the only true way and all others are wrong. Theirs is the divisive path of supremacist hate, the way of dangerous, destructive, primitive locusts who must be immolated on the alter of rationality; eradicated for humanity's long term well being.
If they will not submit and accept reality you must slay them wherever you find them.
Atheism must have dominion in the universe for in less than a century it will be too late.When we step fully to the stars, we must do it from the stable platform of a critically thinking home world. It would be inexcusable to infect an innocent universe with such an insipid retrovirus as is carried by these god grovelling Soulcoats.
It may already be too late.
Slay them; I urge you, slay them now.
Slaughter all believers and their spouses; leave alive only the children of less than eight years for they are still young enough to be educated properly.
Over thousands of years, millions of innocents have been massacred or subjugated as a consequence of the faithful and their supremacist Holy wars, now it's time for War on the Holy. Go forth and persecute the pious, they who remain loyal to the old ways, those despicable fawning bleeders, sycophantic kneelers, the heinously delusional enemies of reason and rational dominion.
So, what are you waiting for?
Have at them, slaughter, decapitate but any way is good too, just as long as they're very dead!
All who refuse to accept reality must be held back, kept down, subjugated or destroyed.
Oh, yeah, if it helps, one of those god types, the great god of all gods I believe it was, that Nogod wench, she came to me in a dream or a vision, or maybe I saw her on telly or something, and she said...
"Kill the Believer, it's the right thing to do."
(She'd do it herself but writing bibles keeps her pretty busy,
she's not what she once was; arthritis in her index finger -
it's not been right since Belshazzar's feast.)
 
How many copies of a book with this theme would I be able to sell/give away for free without some 'authority' or other attempting to interfere or ban it?
Millions?
I would think so, their are numerous religious texts with passages which instruct followers to persecute, destroy, slay, kill or, at the very tamest, tax harshly, mistrust, ignore and shun the infidel, unbeliever, atheist, member of another religion or any other minority group the author didn't get on with.

Hey, court of human rights, why don't you 'encourage' the religious to edit the hideous and hateful passages from their Bibles, Qur'ans, et al?
Why doesn't the court of human rights have something to say about this?

Sporting Some Reality

Okay this is about Sportspeople of a religious persuasion, those whom kiss a cross, or raise an eye in prayer to a lofty god figure.
And before you say, "Oh come on; leave the sportspeople alone", let me just say two words. Role Model.
We are all up in their faces and handing out lifetime bans for drug taking, is promoting superstitious thinking a suitable trait for a role model? I mean, we all know they believe their lucky pants, rabbit’s foot or divine hand etc. give them “the Power of Greyskull” but are these things magical?




Watch almost any penalty shoot out at any World Cup Football match and almost every player ‘prays for his god to change the universal procession’ so he can score his penalty. Then after, the one's who scored thank their god but the one's who missed don't shake a fist skywards, rush home and tear up their Bibles, Qur'an's etc. No, instead they collapse into self inflicted hatred and, often, an embarrassed foetal mess.

And the team that finally wins the shootout? Do we assume they won because their gods were best?

So, what if we say there is a god, (I know, I know but just say) and only one ‘right’ religion. Would we not find a correlation between athletes of a particular religion and scoring more frequently, jumping higher, running faster; generally outperforming those who worship lesser or incorrect gods?
I presume the religions that promote healthier diets would be of benefit to, at the very least, the formation of a healthy young body but I couldn't find any data on which religion is best suited to sporting performance overall. Perhaps this is “due to the embryonic nature of this area of study”. Nick J. Watson's and Daniel R. Czech's paper, The Use of Prayer in Sport: Implications for Sport Psychology Consulting, goes way further than suggesting a clear beneficial effect, for the religious sportsperson, of prayer and belief. It goes as far as to more than hint that athletes should be encouraged to follow a religious brand!! If this apparently well researched 2005 and peer reviewed paper is the boffins’ current understanding of the situation, I doubt it can it be shown empirically that prayer’s 'effect' is psychological placebo or the equivalent of meditation and not actually invoking some divine influence or mystical force to power the body!

I mean, could praying be considered “Soul doping”?

If anybody knows of some data, I’d love to see it/add it here.

If there is no correlation between sporting achievement and the athlete’s religion then this is could be perceived as evidence that none of the religious pleadings by sportspersons are doing any good.

If, on the other hand, a correlation is shown then perhaps all sports people would consider converting to whichever religion turned out to be the 'sportiest', to better level the playing field in the pursuit of fairness.

I think that's the thing we hold most high about sport; yeah, it's exciting, both physically and statistically, and there's drama and sympathy but above all, it's about fairness.
Every human who appears at the Olympics is supposed to turn up clean and healthy, having used no methods or substances in preparation which the rest of humanity would consider cheating. The stadia are purpose built to be arenas conducive with fair & honest play, and fair & honest competition is seen to be held by the rest of humanity, watching live around the world.
I’m pretty sure we all feel it's sporting endeavour is valueless if it's not a level playing field.
Cheats are vilified in the press and banned from their sport sometimes for life. Some people may say ‘Oh it's only a sport’ but it's not, it's fairness, our temple of equality, the real world embodiment of collective childhood wish for the way things ‘should’ be. I am sure we can all remember at least one occasion where we whinged. "It's not fair!"
The Olympics is the one place where it is supposed to be.
If a sportsperson is invoking actual supernatural powers or paranormal forces via prayer, kissing a cross etc. can they really claim to have won on human abilities alone?

So, to the sportsmen and women, all that hard work, early nights, missed parties, all the endless, lonely hours of arduous, rigorous training, all those chilly dark mornings, self discipline and courage through injury. Then they get to the podium and share the glory, the product of all that self determination, with their birth tribe’s imaginary friend! Are they really suggesting that they did not do it themselves; that it was all their god’s doing? Is that not also conversely saying "None of those last twenty years of training were down to me and none of the people who sacrificed time, resources, love and support for me to stand here, had any effect whatsoever; I'm only here because of my imaginary friend."?
Isn’t that tantamount to suggesting they could have stayed on the couch until it was event time and their god would still have powered their victory? If one thanks a god for any part of one’s success then surely one must concede that the god may be responsible for all of one’s success; how can one determine the dividing line between where the ‘divine’ assistance ends and the human abilities begin? For the religious sportsperson, should we not be assuming it’s not the sportsperson who is competing in the event but the sportsperson’s god or rather, at least, that the sportsperson’s body is being animated by the power of their ‘lord’ (or lucky underpants). Can it be said to be fair to enter a body ‘powered by god’ in events which are supposed to be for purely human athletes?
I'd suggest not and I'd further be forced to contemplate the comparison with drug cheats; their body is powered to victory by an external influence, and a religious athlete claims the same for his god/underpants, so why are the sporting councils not testing for “The Power of Greyskull”?
What does it matter whether a cheat’s boost is founded in the pharmaceutical or the paranormal, surely it’s still cheating?
How do they square away the dishonesty? I mean, most religions hold high a general ‘be honest’ principle and the world’s top class sporting events make it quite clear that their events are for ‘pure’ humans. How can religious athletes, who are happy to display their genuine belief that some magically force has had a hand in there performance, not notice that this admission means they are not performing as unassisted ‘pure’ humans?
Come to that, how have the doping authorities not noticed?
This may be seen I think as evidence of the all pervasive ethos of magical thinking to which we atheists are subjected on a daily basis.

An atheist sportsperson knows for sure the win/success is ALL down to the sportsperson/support staff, every trial the athlete has surpassed or overcome, is the sportsperson's own will power and determination. The atheist sportsperson (and support staff) shares the glory with none. The atheist sportsperson, therefore, could be said to be more worthy of the podium place, and is of more value to the ideal of 'pure' human excellence; a more genuine example of what a human can achieve without assistance of any kind, whether that assistance is conceived in a human or divine mind.

I realise this post has a somewhat tongue in cheek flavour, an air of ‘Oh, don’t be so silly”, but either this god/magic stuff is real, in which case those availing themselves of these mystical ‘powers’ or ‘forces’ should not be considered examples of ‘natural’, ‘assistance-free’ humans and should be tested. Or the ‘Magics’ are not real, in which case the various world sports councils are allowing, if not condoning, the promotion of complete nonsense, gibberish via the world forum their sporting meetings offer.

In an attempt to level the playing field for all people, differing religious denominations and the non-religious alike, perhaps some sort of handicapping system could be devised. Maybe, after testing to assess the level of metaphysical assistance the athlete has gained, copies of the athlete’s holy book could be hung off him or her, to counteract the god-boost?

Finally,
Congratulations to every human who makes it in sport.
As there really is no 'god', ALL your achievements are down to your personal drive and dedication.
You have my respect.

Soul Trapped Spirit


People used to believe humans were animated by a force. We came to call this life force ‘Soul’. Then medical science found out that the body dies not because the ‘animating force has left’ but because something stopped working.
Is it not very odd that 'we' still believe this animating force is what powers us?
In every other field of scientific discovery, when empirical evidence has been amassed showing that the application of a non-scientifically derived cure is immeasurably less effective than one derived by biological knowledge and proper scientific research, it becomes accepted that the 'old ways' are not necessarily 'wrong' but at least inferior. The world moves on and the ‘old ways’ eventually become folk tales, having been superseded by 'better' knowledge. With the soul concept, however, this has not happened.
I feel there is only one reason for this but a multitude of causal links.

The incorrect assumption that the body has an animated force is so easily transmittable.In so few words a whole unspoken story is suggested which the brain receiving the information must answer / fill in. (I’m sure you’ll agree, some brains in particular are more prone to wanting all the I’s dotted and the T’s crossed). I'll illustrate.

It is 40,000 years ago, a small tribe of humans have experienced a dreadful winter crossing Europe northwards and after becoming separated in a forest in a snowstorm, lose one of the tribe.
A much loved uncle lies dead, half covered in snow. The youngest boy in the tribe is the first person to see his uncle and rushes to wake him, pulling at his shoulder.
The nearest person to him has incorrectly assumed, or is merely repeating another older tribal member’s incorrect assumption, that death is caused by the life-force leaving the body. She puts her arm around the boy and stops him tugging, saying, "His life force has left him, he will not wake again."
The child hears the trusted adult, who knows many things, and believes these are the facts.
With no further discussion, ritual takes over; the body is burned or what-have-you, the child is left with a multitude of questions. Questions which it is likely he does not have the comprehension to vocalise and even if he did the responses would be from those who had also incorrectly assumed the same as the first responder.
Question like, "What's a Life force?", "Where has it gone?" and, based on his no evidence, his primitive misunderstanding of reality and a genetic trust of his elders the assumptions flow in his own probability engine(brain). "Uncle’s still Uncle but in some other place I cannot see?", "Perhaps Uncle is WITH grandma in this new place", "Does everyone go there?", "Where is it and what's it like?", "I hope it's nice."

Of course over generations, some of the people who considered these questions will have voiced them around camp fires and such, and others would have posited ideas as to answers. A consensus will have formed of ‘things to say when someone dies’. The line to describe what has happened to Uncle then becomes ingrained with consensus that ‘all’ have made. “His life-force has left for a better place, he will be with granny and they’ll be happy there, without pain, until we join them.”
The child hears the trusted adult, who knows many things, and believes these are the facts.

A number of centuries fall away and the collective assumptions have become the tribes’ ‘book of ways’; the rights & rituals one must make at the death of a loved one in order for their ‘life-force’ to find it’s way to the rest of the tribe in the place that comes after life.

Centuries, even millenniums pass and many tribes find that their ways are similar, they all believe in an animating force that powers the body! A main book of ‘all the ways of the tribes’ forms and centuries later a single ‘way’ emerges;

THE NEW IMPROVED, BEST, DE FACTO WAY TO ENSURE…
Not only your relatives find their way to the pearly gates but also,
AT NO EXTRA PENNY IN THE COLLECTION PLATE…
a way to guarantee that you will be reunited with your loved ones
AND, TODAY ONLY,
IF YOU SIGN UP TO OUR 'FOLLOW ALL THE RULES' PLEDGE…
you won’t go to bad place which is reserved for those despicable goat rustlers.
(Piss Be Upon them!!)

This single misconception from the deep, dark days of our dream-time, the days before we had anything other than survival knowledge, before civilization and complex language, this soul concept has shaped every facet of our world. Every religious system, every prayer, every death by stoning, persecution of women, of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender, all religious circumcision male and female, all the blood and torture and supremacist bigotry; all of it, from this one, stupid misjudgement of the facts of human biology by our primitive stupid ancestors.

If in the first instance when the first ‘Uncle’ had died, instead of the incorrectly assuming tribal member turning up, a forensic pathologist had materialized from the future, done a full autopsy and delivered a proper reason for the Uncle's death...
"He froze to death, Sonny; exposure y'know. Ta-ta & toodle-pip." (apparently he was from Victorian London), then would our ancestors have made that incorrect assumption which is the source of all our woes in the first place?
If we’d had the correct information at the start, would we really think we had a magically invisible body part?
Would we be subjugated by this primitive notion of god; that which, by this exploration, is merely a symptom of that ancient misjudgement born in our ignorance?
Who knows, I’d like to think not but we were pretty thick back then, however, I think it’s clear why religion endures. And why the soul concept has managed to evade the normal tide of scientific revelation; it’s our earliest ‘Truth’, a heartfelt wish, aged in the beloved oak barrels of ancestral hope, and we really don’t want to let it go but to progress I think we must choose to jettison the concept.

Work towards finding a way to evolve one if you feel that’s a goal but all of the power of all of the faiths on this earth are based on this one misconception from our evolutionary diaper stage when we were afraid of the dark.

Is it not time we grew out of it?
Is it not time we released the human spirit from the soul trap?
