BEEP! BEEP! IT'S ME.

"Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1896)

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"

I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

Why God Hates Sex


Why God Hates Sex

(posted Wednesday, March 08, 2006 by A Rational Being )

Why do many religions have such a problem with sex? Orwell gives us some insight.
From 1984, Part 2, Chapter 3. Winston’s affair, Julia tells us how “The Party” views sex.

Unlike Winston, she had grasped the inner meaning of the Party's sexual Puritanism. It was not merely that the sex instinct created a world of its own which was outside the Party's control and which therefore had to be destroyed if possible. What was more important was that sexual privation induced hysteria, which was desirable because it could be transformed into war-fever and leader-worship. The way she put it was: 'When you make love you're using up energy; and afterwards you feel happy and don't give a damn for anything. They can't bear you to feel like that. They want you to be bursting with energy all the time. All this marching up and down and cheering and waving flags is simply sex gone sour. If you're happy inside yourself, why should you get excited about Big Brother and the Three-Year Plans and the Two Minutes Hate and all the rest of their bloody rot?'

Athletes have known this for years. The Pittsburgh Steelers abstained from sex during the run-up to the Super Bowl. Olympic athletes did the same. It would appear that Christians and Muslims have known it for centuries.

There is NO ONE who loves sex more than God. He invented it. But it's like burning fire.. we love it, even though it might burn our houses down if not treated right. Sex is amazingly fantastic, but it has destroyed many lives because of people who haven't treated it right. Sex is best the way God meant it to be.

Religion on the other hand hasn't always spoken in the Father's best interest, to put it like that... Well, to hell with religion!

You must have me confused with someone who believes in the existence of gods and goddesses.

Very interesting tie-in between 1984, sex, and the Muslim faith!

You might check into what Reform Judaism has to say on the subject of sex. Among other things, it is the man's obligation to first satisfy his wife to the extent she desires to be satisfied.

It is also a "double mitzvah (good dead)" to have sex on the Sabbath.

A "good deed" to have sex for god on the sabbath? Ok, but only if she makes the wearing of condoms compulsory.
