Category: Ranty rant!


Good to be back!

Sorry for the absense! I’ve been very busy recently, got myself a new job, doing alot of hours, so I’ve not has as much time to get on here and vent my thoughts.

First of all, I’ll start by recapping my life at the moment, it has been a while after all! Well, I have a new job, which looks set to be permanent. It’s not a job I enjoy, the hours are horrible, and I hate my boss. It’s making me miserable, but I need the money, and maybe once I’ve got myself settled down properly, perhaps I can try and find something else. That’s all the news I have though, really. Nothing else has really changed. My knee still gives me trouble, I still drink alot, I’m still pretty miserable, and I still hate people.

Right, back to business!

 

Today in the news there was something about some police in America (Texas, I think, they had cowboy hats on, so it must be Texas…) who rushed out to some farmhouse because some psychic told them she had visions of a mass grave full of dismembered children (METAAAAL), then they were surprised when they found nothing.

How many fucking times do “psychics” have to be wrong before people realise they’re all bullshitting us? What do they just say “Oh, well, I’ll get it right next time!” and we let them off the hook?!

This is retarded, why do people give these people any thought at all? They’re always wrong, they always will be. If they weren’t, then they’d be able to provide some credible proof.

 

Stay rational, people.

So, I put up an apparently “controversial and offensive” status a few nights ago, on Faceybook;

“To those who prayed for the miners in Chile; …Well done. You didn’t do jack-shit. The people who built the rescue capsules did more than your “God”.

Respect the rescuers, first and foremost. Then the survivors. They deserve the respect, not any omnipotent beings.”

Now, I didn’t see the big deal when I posted this, as it’s just basically my opinion. I didn’t really attack anybody, and I didn’t feel it was overly antagonising.

I then got a load of comments saying “Waaah! I respect your right to disbelieve, but don’t attack my God! Waaaaah!”.

So, now, me saying that there is no God is somehow offensive? Since when? It’s my opinion, why can’t I express it?

This is like me telling someone to shut up for saying “Praise God! All 33 miners made it out safely! He truly was watching over them!”, which would be utterly stupid. Though I disagree with what they are saying, I wouldn’t get all butthurt over it.

So it seems it’s fine for them to shove God in all our faces 24/7, and we can’t say anything about it, but the moment us atheists express our opinion that God isn’t there, then we’ve committed some kind of atrocity?

Doesn’t seem very fair, to me.

Ayersy’s Conundrum.

Remember the post a while back about there being no free will, so long as God apparently knows the future? Well, so far, nobody has been able to refute that point, so it’s obviously quite a dilemma for theists to be in. Quite proud that I thought of it on my own (though I probably ain’t the first), and that it’s apparently caused people to stop and do some thinking.

I haven’t really got any other ponderings to mention, whilst I’m updating.

In personal news, however. My whore of an ex-girlfriend made an appearance on TV today (The Jeremy Kyle show), and lied her ass off, on there. I felt a combination of both rage, and pity, as I watched the huge farce unfold on my screen. It was also pretty damn funny. Anyway, all in the past now, but damn, felt weird to watch. In other news, my work is going alright, and I’m getting really used to using the system in the office.

Hoping I’ll be able to get another job within the council, albeit a little closer to home. That would rule.

I will rack my brains tomorrow and attempt to come up with a decent rant. If not, I shall regail you with the hilarious story of how I smashed my kneecap. Either way, it’ll be a good one to read. Later days!

Back on track!

Right, sorry about that, I was pretty busy over the weekend, and by busy, I mean hungover. I have recovered now and enjoyed an emmensely boring day at the office. Fun stuff.

Today’s topic is inspired by Stephen Hawking. He recently stated that God is not needed for the formation of the universe, because we know of laws of gravity, which makes formation of planets and galaxies possible. Whilst I won’t even pretend to be smart enough to be able to understand all that he’s on about, I have been saying for years that God isn’t needed for the formation of the universe, and thar gravity played a part in it, so we must be on the same page.

The way I see it, the universe is a place, a place that has always been here (Not as we know it now, obviously), and always will be. Various things will happen within that universe, such as the formation (and subsequent destruction) of galaxies.

Now, religious people. who insist God created the universe and everything in it, will insist that in order for the universe to be here, there needs to be a creator, because something can’t just always be here, or be formed from nothing.

“The universe can’t be formed from nothing, everything needs a creator.”
“Okay, who created God?”
“That doesn’t apply to him, he didn’t need a creator.”
“Why?”
“Because… it just doesn’t.”

Why does this rule apparently apply to the universe, but not to God? Why is he so special as to apparently be able to avoid this rule?

Well, the way I see it, if God can evade this rule, so can the universe. At least we know the universe exists, since we’re a part of it. There’s never been any evidence for the existence of any deity.

God: 0

Not that I’m keeping score, or anything.

Hungover.

Gaaah! Went out last night, didn’t even have that many drinks, yet I have a killer hangover, today. My brain is too booze-soaked to even comprehend any anti-theistic thoughts. So I’ll simply add to yesterdays thoughts. Kind of.

As well as God apparently lacking foresight, he also forgot to mention in Genesis that he also created other planets. Why couldn’t he have stated that he created Saturn, Jupiter, etc?

Why? Oh yeah, because people didn’t know about other planets at that point, and whoever wrote the Bible (Not God, by the way) had no idea there were any other planets besides ours, so they weren’t mentioned.

Okay, time to rest, this hangover is undoubtedly kicking my ass today.
