"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!"

Existential Angst And The God Factor

Once upon a time....

Mankind was rooting around on the earth for a few billion years, picking his nose, learning how to walk upright and how to wipe his butt with a smooth leaf. At an undescribed time, mankind became intellectually aware of death after watching his mate be the dinner of a large hairy thing with bad breath. This elicited the response: - "Help! Help! I am going to die! And I don't wanna!" Mankind roots around a bit more, makes a spear and sits down and thinks on the rare times that he isn't fodder for a hungry sabre toothed tiger.

After thinking about the tiger, he screams a few more times and gets very nervous in a natural environment which obviously exists to do him in. He begins to develop dependencies and affections for members of his own species who also scream out "Help! Help! I am going to die! And I don't wanna!" a few times as well. They try to comfort each other as best as they can, but seeing no resolution to their impeding deaths, they scream in unision, "Help! Help! We are going to die!" Things start to get a bit tricky at this stage. There is a lot of fear and a lot of screaming and not much spear making, hunting, gathering or cave painting occurring as the fear of their impeding death is becoming an all-consuming reality. The situation begins to spiral out of control, the natural world is strong, powerful, threatening and dangerous.

Enter one of the most frightened members of the tribe. He has screamed out "Help! Help! I am going to die! himself a few times and understands the fear factor. Whilst sitting in the back of the cave one day and feeling extremely hungry because everyone is too paralysed with fear to hunt, he notices a piece of deer meat in his belly button that wasn't there the day before. Now even primitive man knew that deer meat doesn't grow in people's belly buttons, but not being too much of a bright spark anyway, he decides that it must be a gift from the sun, because there was a ray of sunlight shining onto his belly button so that he would find it. The sun must WANT HIM TO LIVE. After chewing the piece of deer meat whilst running his fingers through the sunbeam in thanks, he runs outside to tell his fellow tribesmen of the power of the sun.

The tribesman explains what happened, embellishing it a bit as everyone likes a good story and we shouldn't let the truth get in the way of it. By the time the story has ended, the rest of the tribe are convinced that by worshipping the sun that they will never go hungry. But not only that, but the sun will ensure that if they worship him in the right way, that he will let them join him in the sky after they die. People start to settle down a bit more after that. They start to make spears again, but these new spears have images of the sun engraved on them, to show not only their respect, but to imbue the spears with the power of the sun, the power to provide food. The power to provide food means the power to provide life. And the power to provide life means the possibility of escaping death.

Everyone seems a lot happier, work is being completed, people's bellies are full, the cave walls have beautiful sun pictures and deers on them and people are less afraid of death because of the relationship they have with the powerful sun. The tribesman, who had this revelation about the sun, goes on to become the expert concerning the sun's wants, desires and concerns. Which just goes to show that the best job, is the job you create for yourself. As the font of all knowledge concerning the sun and the tribes lives, he attains for himself a place of superiority within the tribe sometimes equal to, and even surpassing that of the tribal leader.

The people start to demand that the tribal leader consult the shaman (as he will know be called), on all matters concerning the tribes activities, as they wish to be assured that their actions will be pleasing to the sun. They don't want to incur the sun's wrath so that he doesn't make good his promise of life. They also remember those feelings of dread, fear and anxiety before the sun and the knowledge of the sun, came into their lives, so all their activities must meet with the sun's approval.

Unfortunately, sometimes the rituals to the sun don't work. All the chanting, painting of sun pictures around their navels, and food offerings to the shaman (told you it was a good job), don't have the desired effect. The shaman heads off to the back of the cave where he has a special rock with a sun picture on it to do some thinking and talking to the sun. After contemplating his navel for a few hours and the lack of food within, he decides that it is the fault of some members of the tribe, that is making the sun punish them.

He remembers how one of the tribe doesn't make the sign of the sun, (drawing a circle in the air), when he passes. He remembers that one of the youngest members of the tribe mentioned how the moon helped her to find her way home in the dark and that perhaps they should be offering food and chants of worship to the moon as well. There will have to be more rules about what the sun wants. And these rules must be obeyed without question. It is the only way to ensure that the tribe survives. The new rules are accepted without any real degree of questioning, except for the tribe member who is convinced that she is the voice of the moon. The shaman uses his authority as accepted and revered spokesperson for the sun, to insist that the tribe's troubles are the result of disloyalty to the sun. Hence, the offending tribe member is offered up as a sacrifice to the sun, to show the sun that they acknowledge him as the supreme power over their lives. The member of the tribe who was lax in making the sign of the sun, has a sun symbol burnt into her forehead to remind her of the error of her ways.

Now the tribe only has to concern themselves with pleasing the shaman and their sun. Occasionally, terrible things still happen, people are still eaten by wild, hairy animals with bad breath, but at least they get to go and live with the sun as long as they have been loyal followers. People still go hungry, but they have now accepted that it is their fault. It must be because they have displeased the sun in some way, and if they only chant enough, place enough offerings on the sun altar, or ask for forgiveness from the sun, all will be ok. They have become victims of their own creation, but some comfort is better than the thought that they are on their own.

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." - Richard Dawkins

Link: - From Pharyngula - "Researchers compared levels of aggression (measured in a test where participants get to blast each other with loud noises) between students at Brigham Young University (99% True Believers) and Vrije University in Amsterdam (50% God-Wallopers). They also compared aggression after reading a quotation that enjoined them to "take arms against their brothers and chasten them before the LORD". The results: getting God's permission increases levels of aggression."

The Sunset And Great Aunt Mabel's Cardigan

If someone told you that they watched a sunset last night, and that it had certain particular characteristics, would you prefer to accept their assertion that this was true, rather than calling them a liar? If you had spent some time talking to a person and you believe that they’re a thoughtful, honest, sane person, would you like to be able to, by default, accept their claims about their experiences? Most of us would like to think so. But how would we ascertain that they are thoughtful, honest and sane? If someone told you after experiencing a sunset that the sky looked a certain way and made them feel a certain way, does it have the same veracity as if someone told you that they experienced god and it made them feel a certain way? Are beliefs in supernaturalism equivalent in veracity to someone telling you about a sunset?

I don't think so for a number of reasons. One has the means to assess and evaluate the natural world. It is a world which even theists agree exists unless they wish to play the game of, "I am not sure of the existence of anything except the existence of a god." Because sunsets and sunrises are part of the natural world, we can all have similar experiences and thoughts concerning them. Most of us don't, for example, debate whether or not a sunset exists. It is accepted as part of the natural world. We know about the pattern of the sun's movements and the earth's relationship to it. We know that the sun will appear to set at a time which is comparable to our position on the earth. We know many thngs about sunsets that do not put their existence into question. We know that visual displays of this kind can elicit a variety of emotional responses and that these emotional responses are influenced by the experiences of the person who is viewing the sunset. But through all of this, people agree that they are seeing and experiencing something which is part of the natural world.

So, if you said to me after you had viewed a sunset, even if I wasn't present at the time - "That sunset reminded me of my Great Aunt Mabel's cardigan." And if a tear welled in your eye as you remembered Great Aunt Mabel, I wouldn't consider that to be an odd or a potentially unbelievable statement.

It would be believable EVEN if it WASN'T TRUE because:-

  • 1. I know that great aunts exist or have existed.
  • 2. I know that sunsets exist.
  • 3. I know that cardigans exist.
  • 4. I know that the majority of people have memory. (Even if that memory is not accurate.)
  • 5. I know that visual and auditory stimulation can trigger a memory response.(Even if the memory triggered isn't accurate.)
  • 6. I know that memories can have an emotional component.
  • 7. I know that tears exist.

So, as I have a large amount of information concerning the natural world, your experience of the sunset is believable EVEN if it isn't true.

If it ISN'T TRUE, it hardly makes a difference unless you are using it as a tool to elicit sympathy in hopes of a quick shag. It makes very little difference whether it is true or not, as you are not requiring me to worship the sunset, pray to the sunset, get naked and dance while the sun sets, provide food offerings to the sunset to keep it happy, or give money to the "Relief of Sad Sunsets Fund." So, it doesn't matter to me or to anyone else if your experience of the sunset is true or not, even if it is believable.

Let's take it a little bit further. You recount your experiences of the sunset with a few added extras. You also add that while you were staring at the sunset, you heard Great Aunt Mabel's voice boom out from the sky " I love you and I want you to make sure that everyone wears red because it is my favourite colour."

At about this stage of your recounting of the sunset and your emotional and psychological responses to it, I am beginning to have some serious doubts about the veracity of your claim. So, I ask you if perhaps you just imagined Great Aunt Mabel's voice in your head. You agree that this might be so, but that it is a revelation, a sign from Great Aunt Mabel and you will do your utmost to make sure her wishes are carried out.

I then ask if you are going to demand that I wear red also. Your reply is that of course I must wear red and not only that, I should be part of a mission to make sure that EVERYONE wears red to honor Great Aunt Mabel and her great red cardigan which is evidenced by the existence of the great red sunset. You then go on to claim that the reason that the sunset isn't as red as it was yesterday, is because Great Aunt Mabel is sad because I am not wearing a red cardigan. That, in fact, if I don't comply with the demands of Great Aunt Mabel, and don't wear a cardigan or a cardigan which is red, I will be sorry and will never be able to join Great Aunt Mabel in the sunset where everyone is happy and content for eternity in their red cardigans.

My lack of compliance in this regard, (not wearing a red cardigan and not telling others to wear a red cardigan), is in fact dooming a whole lot of people to an afterlife which is bereft of Great Aunt Mabel and her multitudinous goodness and red cardigan comfiness. You also claim that Great Aunt Mabel told you that if you hear any other voices in the sky or in your head that you are to ignore them, and only listen to her instructions.

Now consider a guy called Abraham on a mountain somewhere. He may also be looking at a sunset, or he might be twiddling his thumbs or something else for that matter. I don't know. He claims to hear a big booming voice, either in his head, or emmanating from the sky. This voice is telling him that all the male members of his tribe must chop a bit of their penis off. He claims that not only is this true, but that all males of his tribe must have this done with no exceptions. The voice in the sky, or in his head, tells Abraham that those who are not prepared to sacrifice a bit of penis to him, will not be considered part of the tribe and the benefits that he can bestow upon the tribe will NOT come their way. In fact, they will no longer be special and they will have no chance of meeting him in the sky later on to live in happiness forever.

From my position, both sets of claims are equally unbelievable, but from a supernatural worldview, both sets of claims should be equally believable. If you choose to believe one above the other, it isn't because the claims are markedly different.

Your experiences of the sunset have very little impact upon my life UNLESS as part of your experience, you insist that I too will share the same emotional or psychological experience if I view the sunset with you. Or if you insist that I worship the sunset with you because you adored your Great Aunt.

So it is with Abraham's experiences on the mountain and with whatever god belief you may have. What you believe about a god or gods makes absolutely no difference or impact upon my life UNTIL you insist that what you are experiencing is true, whether I accept it as true or not. And that coupled with this insistence that it is true, that everyone, including myself, must comply. That all laws must comply with your god belief and that all people must obey the laws of this faith, regardless of whether I believe in the existence of said god in the first place.

In other words, once you insist that we all must wear "red cardigans because god told you so", I reserve the right to consider that: -

  • 1. You might not be honest.
  • 2. You might not be thoughtful.
  • 3. And/or you might not be sane.

On that basis, I reserve the right not to agree and not to comply.

, , , , , , ,

ADDENDUM: - Supernaturalists have no consistent methodology with which to test the veracity of supernatural claims. Therefore, they are in the position where they either have to accept all supernatural claims as being true, or they choose to accept specific supernatural claims based on their individual predilections.

Help! We're Being Oppressed!

Image: - Rev. BigDumbChimp stole this from Evil Bender and I stole it from Rev. BigDumbChimp.

Christians are being oppressed in the US? Not likely. Christians, and other religious groups including Islam have been some of the biggest oppressors and persecutors throughout history. Of course, when they are not allowed to persecute everyone according to their religious desires, they insist that this is a form of persecution or oppression enacted against them!

Yes, I know that the Stalinist Empire and the Mao Tse Tung Empire were barbaric, cruel and bloodthirsty, but when you consider that virtually EVERY other skirmish known on the face of the planet has had a religious ideology going along for the ride, or as its primary agenda and focus, it makes religious ideology, the perpetrator of the majority of barbarism and inhumanity to mankind ever witnessed. Most wars, military adventures and colonialist ideologies have had at the basis of their endeavour, the belief and absolute faith that the inhumanity that they perpetrated upon other people was right and meet according to the will of their god or gods. The irony of war and conflict is that both sides have absolute faith that they are doing the will of their god or gods.

If you want to have a look at persecution and oppression and you are religious - here's a mirror, take a look.

"With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion." - Steven Weinberg, quoted in The New York Times, April 20, 1999US physicist (1933 - )

The Jabberwock's Five Quotes


Tne five favourite quotes for today are:

  • "The place has changed but little since Diana received the homage of her worshippers in the sacred grove. The temple of the sylvan goddess, indeed, has vanished and the King of the Wood no longer stands sentinel over the Golden Bough." - Sir James George Frazer
  • "Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." - Lewis Carroll
  • "Moreover, the universe as a whole is infinite, for whatever is limited has an outermost edge to limit it, and such an edge is defined by something beyond. Since the universe has no edge, it has no limit; and since it lacks a limit, it is infinite and unbounded. Moreover, the universe is infinite both in the number of its atoms and in the extent of its void." - Epicurus
  • "Dubito ergo cogito; cogito ergo sum." (I doubt, therefore I think; I think therefore I am) - Rene Descartes
  • "A chicken is just an egg's way of making another egg." - Anonymous
As `twas brillig, and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe, I now tag Eternity Considered, Five Public Opinions , At the Hillocks of Hysteria , Coffee Messiah and Texas Oasis.

Now I will rest by the Tumtum tree, And stand awhile in thought. But beware the vorpal sword for those who do not participate in this meme. ;)

This is an audio reading of the poem 'Jabberwocky' written by Lewis Carroll.

It basically goes like this. A dragon believer says that there is the possibility that there is an invisible dragon living in his garage. Because the dragon believer has faith that the invisible dragon exists in the garage and because no one can prove that it doesn't, he/she takes this as EVIDENCE that the invisible dragon EXISTS. They then go on to demand that everyone believe that they have an invisible dragon living in their garage and that the invisible dragon has special messages for them which it wants followed to the letter.
The person who walks into their garage every day and never thinks about an invisible dragon using the garage as a hideout, sees no point in imagining that an invisible dragon lives there.The person who doesn't believe in invisible dragons knows that they can't prove the non-existence of invisible dragons which are claimed to live in everyone's garage, but they also know that this ISN'T evidence that the invisible dragon exists.
In fact, though they might agree that there is a POSSIBILITY that invisible dragons exist in everyone's garage, this is simply because they cannot definitively prove their non-existence. They consider the PROBABILITY of the existence of invisible dragons to be so low that they see no point in believing in their existence, worshipping them, obeying them or pretending to speak to the invisible dragon with their thoughts.And they see no reason to demand that others worship and obey the invisible dragon either.
Dragon believers then get in a bit of a huff and go on to claim that you wouldn't be able to build garages and dream about invisible dragons if it wasn't for the invisible dragon allowing you to do this and that garages are, therefore, evidence of the existence of invisible dragons. The person who doesn't believe in the existence of invisible dragons in the garage then asks, " How do you know that invisible dragons exist?" The dragon believer, without missing an illogical beat, replies - "Well, garages exist, don't they? That is evidence that invisible dragons exist."At which point, the person who doesn't believe in the existence of invisible dragons, puts "Invisible Dragon Free Zone" in large letters above their garage.

The Hat I Will Be Wearing In Hell

This is the hat I will be wearing in Hell. It is practical, especially with the water sprinkler on the top and obviously, it has NO religious significance. Hat wearing if you are a christian, does have religious significance however.

1 Corinthians 11 Paul writes:

"4 Any man who prays or prophesies with his head covered brings shame upon his head. 5 But any woman who prays or prophesies with her head UNVEILED brings shame upon her head, for it is one and the same thing as if she had had her head shaved. 6 For if a woman does not have her head veiled, she may as well have her hair cut off. But if it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should wear a veil. 7 A man, on the other hand, should not cover his head, because HE IS THE IMAGE AND GLORY OF GOD, BUT WOMAN IS THE GLORY OF MAN. 8 FOR MAN DID NOT COME FROM WOMAN, BUT WOMAN FROM MAN; 9 nor was man created for woman, but woman for man; 10 for this reason a WOMAN SHOULD HAVE A SIGN OF AUTHORITY ON HER HEAD, because of the angels."

Oh dear, once again ancient man claimed that he was the source of power and that life emanated from him. Yes, we know you ejaculate and that this seed can be used to father children, but REALLY, you just didn't have your biology right, which is a BIG part of the problem when it comes to religious myths. Women were created from man and by man? And man was created by a male god? What a bunch of hooey. Not in my biology book they don't. It just goes to show what a lack of biological information will do when it comes to creating hierarchies and power structures.

So, the hat on a man in church was not allowed because "he is the image and glory of (the male)god." That's what happens folks when you allow your ego to create your own god. You get to put yourself at the top of the pecking order. Women, on the other hand, had to show their subservience not only to the male god, but also to the males in the church by keeping their heads covered. What a bunch of crapola. What a load of superstitious, supernatural mumbo jumbo perpetuated in order to keep men at the top of the tree and women lower down the pecking order. If a woman wants to know her status in society, nothing should piss them off faster than a quick read of the MISOGYNISTIC christian bible, or the quran for that matter too.

1 Corinthians 11:6 "For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered."

So, for you hussies out there who go to church with your head uncovered, according to the bible, you should have your head shaved for being naughty and putting yourself on the same level as man or the angels, or perhaps even god himself. The bible is either the word of god or it isn't. So no excuses about how the rules have been relaxed because it messes up your hairdo or something. Get your hat out and wear it, and make sure you don't get above your station in life. This is just a further indication why many men love the whole god concept. They get to be important and favoured. They think they get to tell women what to do based on the fact that they have a peepee. I think they should wear a hat on their peepee. Hang on a minute, they used to wear a natural hat on their peepee called a foreskin, until their male god let them know that he was starting a foreskin collection. Ok, it seems the rules for males are, no hat to be worn in church, and no "hat" on your penis. The male god is apparently happy with this arrangement. What a load of messed up old cobblers religion is.

Which reminds me. Guys better make sure you are NOT wearing a hat when you cark it, as if you are going to heaven, god might be pissed off if you turn up to worhip him wearing the cap with " Jesus Rulz" on it. Women, you better make sure that you wear a hat at all times as you don't wanna be caught in heaven with your head uncovered. Didn't you ever wonder what St. Peter had under his robes? No, not his circumcision scar, he has an almighty, huge pair of shearing tongs - all ready to shear off the locks of the women at the Pearly Gates who forgot to wear a hat. I won't have to worry about my hat attire as obviously I will be going straight to hell. (Do not pass GO, do not collect $6000.) But I have considered what hat wear, if any, I will sport for such an occassion, and I am considering the fetching little number at the top of the page.

"Big Brother isn’t watching. He’s singing and dancing. He’s pulling rabbits out of a hat. Big Brother’s busy holding your attention every moment you’re awake. He’s making sure you’re always distracted. He’s making sure you’re fully absorbed." - Chuck Palahniuk

Getting a Perspective on Global Energy Reserves and Consumption

Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Oil Consumption Per Capita

And I am sure the fact that EXXON MOBIL is the RICHE$T corporation in the world, has nothing to do with The Bush Administration's negativity towards human impact and Global Climate Change.

Strangers on my flight,
turbans they're packin'.
Wonderin' if they might,
plan a hijacking.
They could pull a stunt,
before this flight is through.
Something's on their minds.
I saw them mutter.
What that in their hands?
Looks like box cutters,
I'm gonna kick some ass,
if they make a move.
Strangers on my flight.
Two smelly people,
and they're not talking right;
and in a moment,
I will grab base ball bat;
and that will be that.
Swing like Joe DiMaggio,
and rip them both a new a-hole.
And if they pick a fight,
and try to screw us,
I'll punch out their lights,
just like Joe Louis.
It would feel so right,
for strangers on my flight.
Ratta Tat Tat Tat,
Budda Bing Bang Boom,
Zooma Zooma Zoom.
Send those b*stards to the moon....
