TRUMP’S BS ECONOMY

I have constantly come across those people who have no idea of world events and who are not even interested in finding the facts before spouting what they have heard from a random source.

In the last case it was a couple of half drunken women who were told by someone that Trump had built an economy before the virus that was the greatest in US history.

It is simply amazing that when you do the homework and explain the actual facts, people either drunk or sober will not believe a word you say and continue to preach the same diatribe that they always like to hear?

These people represent a huge chunk of Australia and I should imagine a larger chunk in overseas countries, especially in the US. They are like Trump in the way that they will stick with the lie or fake news so that they will not lose face and back down, or is it they like the rubbish so much it suits their political ideals and becomes reality to them? Of course they may just continue with the BS because it is the most recent trend started by Trump, not withstanding that these women are also fanatically supporting the orange pussy grabbing egocentric.

I note in our Queensland elections flyers that come to the letterbox the opposition party has created massively high figures for crime increases such as 130%. The BS is catching on fast in Australia but of course if you know a police woman like I do and you check out the police web page you know the rates did peak a little but are now only slightly more than in 2001.

If anyone were to believe Trump’s bragging claims such as he built the greatest ever US economy prior to the coronavirus outbreak.

Reality Check verdict: It’s true the economy was doing well prior to the pandemic – continuing a trend which began during the Obama administration – but there have been periods when it was much stronger.

This is the age of the spoilt privileged intolerant brats

The conspiracist merchants, the anti whatever protesters, the racists, the Trumpests, the 5G nuts and the range of anti social idealists along with the religious crazies, the anti-science anti-vaccination preachers and the left and right political nut jobs have found whatever excuse they can manufacture from this coronavirus disaster to rebel against whatever they subjectively do not like and they will blindly support what always works out to be an issue causing conflict and social disorder and during a pandemic that is totally stupid. These collective idiots I will refer to as the “brats”

In this case government lock downs, social distancing, wearing masks and restricted gatherings and movement are the catalyst for the demonstrations regarding anything the brats do not like, a reason for left and right radical groups of brats to form into gangs disregarding any relevant evidence or facts to collectively bring mayhem to the streets to destroy and burn property, enjoy their lawlessness, commit violence if desired and even kill people to make their point.  

Of course these coronavirus restrictions were imposed by governments with the sole intention of saving the lives of humans and brats. The saving of lives being the duty of governments and the single most important and ethical code of humans within democratic countries with educated and benevolent societies.  

So today coronavirus kills plenty of old people, that is an indisputable fact but it seems to be a non-issue and has been claimed by brats that they would soon die anyway and it is not really a concern compared to the economic issues and their freedom. The fact that younger people can suffer permanent heart and lung damage that may shorten their lives has also been totally ignored by these brain dead brats.

Take a hike back in time just as far as the second world war and take in the contrast. The people in the many cities in Europe of both sides who were regularly bombed by the enemy air-forces for years were subjected to extreme hardships that most of us will never know such as destruction of their properties, death and starvation, food rationing, sickness and hours in underground shelters without electricity or water. These people became resilient and brave, they did the best they could under the circumstances, they cared about each other and helped each other regardless of their personal beliefs.

Today’s spoilt brats have spat the dummy, they are a new breed of intolerant uncompassionate people who dislike any amount of hardship and need to blame somebody else for everything, they have no reality, no integrity and no hope from lapping up indoctrinated conspiracies, the last people you would trust or want to watch your back.

Granted if you think that I have lumped in a lot of people as brats who between them are often on opposite sides of ideologies but they are of the same “who gives a Fuck about anyone else” kind of mentality within times of an obviously serious pandemic. I never thought it possible that people could become so disconnected from humanity and become such dangerous brats.

HERE WE GO AGAIN WITH THE STUPID PEOPLE

The Catholic archbishop of Sydney called for followers to boycott the vaccine on ethical and religious grounds along with the Anglican Archbishop of Sydney and the Greek Orthodox Archbishop of Australia. 

Again we have religious interference in our scientific attempts to vaccinate against coronavirus. Church leaders are preaching to their flocks to reject the Oxford University vaccine due to being manufactured using cells derived from human fetuses electively aborted decades ago.

The real facts are always missed by all preaching religious fanatics every time they open their mouths about ethics or scientific issues. In this case they have overlooked the fact that many common vaccines and anti-bodies such as chickenpox, rubella, insulin for diabetics and Hepatitis A are made in a lab from human aborted fetuses for over many decades, and I would bet these Godly leaders have been vaccinated with at least one of these vaccines during their life time.

Notwithstanding those facts, the Biblical accounts of killing unborn babies along with every other human and animal suggests these so called ethical stands against life saving vaccines are not from a creditable base.

“God will punish the Israelites by destroying their unborn children, who will die at birth, or perish in the womb, or never even be conceived” (Hosea 9:10-16)   

“For rebelling against God, Samaria’s people will be killed, their babies will be dashed to death against the ground, and their pregnant women will be ripped open with a sword” (Hosea 13:16)

Not only does the Bible present God as not pro-life, but the risks of not having vaccinations and infecting the living vulnerable old and ill people who often inevitably die from the virus is the most prominent issue regarding ethical standards in this selective unethical mix of religious crap. I say where is the bloody logic to this rubbish? No wonder the Churches are losing their faithful financial flocks.   

THE BIGGEST VIRUS ON THE PLANET IS A WILLFUL IGNORANCE AND STUPIDITY COCKTAIL

A tirade regarding the wearing masks and being upset about what is rightful condemnation of those who do not wear a mask, including the ludicrous comparison with themselves and what the Jewish communities suffered during the Second World War, managed in just 3 sentences.

“Does anybody else but me see that The Mask – or more accurately the *absence* of one – has become a perverse Star of David?”

“It’s pretty slick, if you ask me. Now we can all tell at a glance who is compliant and who is a dirty dissenter!”

“And I’m really, really tired of being told we have to wear one because, Science!”

As this person is a Christian maybe they better act like one and think of the people who could die from this virus, and maybe they now have a small understanding of how Christianity treats the LGBTQ people.

“Look, if wearing The Mask was really about protecting health then there would be stipulations about what sort of masks are acceptable. Medical masks only filter what you’re breathing out and industrial style ones only filter what’s coming in. And of course if you think tying a filthy rag over your gob is gonna protect you, you’re seriously stupid.”

“Member I told you I had a stash of N95s – you know, the masks that *actually* work – “just in case”? Still haven’t worn one, lol, and now that it’s mandatory, I’ve taken my stand.”

If you did not think this person ignorant you definitely will now, they are Canadian not American but the comments are much the same. I simply cannot believe people in the US can be so complacent and smug when the US has 60,500 new cases of COVID-19 in one day and a new record, or this commenter can be so LOL about their rejection of masks. Stupidity has taken a new stand.

I will not put on my Star of David like a good little Jew. (And that is no offense to our Jewish friends, who obviously had little choice in the matter.)

Nope. I will not comply. I dissent and so long as I continue to have the right to dissent, I’m going to exercise it.

An offer of some apology to the Jewish people and that has to be the high point. Make your own opinion about this, remembering this person is a loving Christian. Unfortunately there are many other so called Christian bloggers that totally agree.

Another comment from another foolish person

“What sort of a gullible dingbat goofball is going to just trust experts and scientists and political leaders just based on their projected image of competence and sincerity? “

Of course why would we trust experts in viruses and respected scientists to tell the truth, or have any kind of trust in the elected officials? This person obviously knows a lot more than they do.

Those people are my Globalist enemies. The more communists like you hate Trump, the more I like him.

Oh okay now I understand the delusion but not the stupidity.

I have a theory, some brands of Christianity seem to attract the conspiracy merchants, the Trump supporters, the science deniers, the flat Earthers, creationists the extreme left and right nutters and of course the anti socialites. Thank the spaghetti monster these crazy people do not rule the world.

THE DOCTRINE OF ATHEISM?

As usual an over enthusiastic and deluded Christian blogger has insisted that atheism is a religion.

” sklyjd like most Atheists, insists that Atheism is not a religion. Supposedly, Atheism is just a logical and rational disbelief in god, and such disbelief is not a religion”

He at least understands the disbelief part, but he forgot to look up religion.

“RELIGION” First definition is: “the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.”

The second definition is: “a particular system of faith and worship.”

The third definition is: “a pursuit or interest followed with great devotion.”

(Google definitions)

The third definition is the only part they may think they can hang their hat on. Yes, true some atheists like myself pursue our atheist arguments against religions also known as cults with great devotion in a religious manner.  Disbelief is not promoting a belief and this does not make a religion, however theists such as this blogger are very skilled in making words fit into different meanings that support their personal world view. Such as this Christian bull shit.

“Here is a simple definition of religion.”

“Religion is the state of being grasped by an ultimate concern, a concern which qualifies all other concerns as preliminary and which itself contains the answer to the question of the meaning of life.” — Paul Tillich 

See what I mean? He cannot use a dictionary but quotes one of his fanatical heroes because dictionaries do not support his Christian views. He goes on with his made up ideals regarding atheists, yet he does not have any idea as to what he is talking about. He does however get one thing almost right.

“What do I think is the doctrine of strong atheism? This doctrine involves the things Atheists put before God: getting stuff, enjoying sex, justifying themselves with science, finding security in power of the state, and self glorification.”

That is what all atheists do, no god, no doctrine, no religion, no god, no worries. Most atheists would put their families first before anything, we most definitely would not consider for one second sacrificing our children in the name of any perceived man made bronze age gods, whereas Christians…….what do you think?

 

HALLOWEEN EVIL

download.pngThese are some parts from a post on a site called Revival & Reformation run by a person called Paul who I believe is a fanatical Christian woman. She writes:

“Halloween…Will You Be Celebrating?”

“What has happened to society when your next door neighbor can hang fake bodies and goblins from their porch by a hangman’s noose and think it’s fun?”

“Since when do we find gore, violence and murder fun?”

 “This is the deception and  true danger of Halloween. It desensitizes a people to accept violence as a general way of thinking and acting. It keeps the cross-hairs off of anyone in particular, but allows Joe Average to commit acts of violence against no one in particular, and allows him to sink into a place of horror and ugliness that he would normally be averse to even think about.”

“This is the time where we, as Christians must make a statement and shut this holiday out from our lives. Turn off the lights, lock the doors and do everything we can not to participate in its evil. There’s nothing we can do, save standing on the corner and shouting out the Gospel and the world’s need for repentance, to make this day good. And I can guarantee, there will be few or none doing that on such an evil day as this.”

“Unless you regard this day as an opportunity to evangelize, then stay inside, do not open the doors to the knocks and hope and pray that you and your family are spared the evil.”

I have never thought much about kids having scary fun for one night of the year and my daughter was never into it, however when you come across such righteous kind of people who cannot think beyond the box they are shackled in you just have to say something.

This crap is ripe coming from Christian people who indoctrinate children with evil talking snakes, Satan, the devil, evil angels, heaven and hell not to mention the walking dead, the genocide, slavery and especially the hanging of humans from crosses with nails through their hands and feet.

What could be more gruesome and mind bending than biblical stories taught as facts to young children?

I answered her post in a very civil manner explaining a few facts such as:

It is in the context, it is interpreted and perceived by the individual in various ways, either as a abhorrent event or in a fun way if you want to go to the extremes, it is just like different people interpret the Bible to suit their own beliefs, this happens in all aspects of life.

You obviously live your life with supernatural beliefs, and it is all quite real for you, however children live in a world of make believe and many love scary stories and fairground rides into the haunted house, so it makes sense that many children will embrace what they see as a fun time, not as a gruesome reality and not as a message to hang people or commit murderous crimes.

You will never understand human dynamics as long as you reject ordinary people who do not believe in your version of God or support your political and social ideals; therefore you will never be at peace with much of your community or your one and only precious life.

You may think you can turn that comment around; however my life is not intellectually and emotionally imprisoned by bronze age ideologies and ancient gods that happen to only exist within a theists brain.


As usual for this site my comment never saw the light of day, I recon this poor woman must be so insecure in her faith she dare not be challenged.

 

IS RELIGION THE ROOT OF GENDER DISCRIMINATION?

Welcome to one of the “surprising and outrageous stats about gender inequality” that comes from the World Economic Forum website. This article comes from a page advocating “7 surprising and outrageous stats about gender inequality” and I find they have often not looked logically at the underlying facts and reasons some of them exist and could be called slanted reporting, I found this one particularly misleading.

“Globally, 12 million girls each year get married before the age of 18 – roughly 33,000 every day, or one every two seconds. There are some 650 million women alive today who were child brides.”

“The reasons behind it vary between communities, but it’s often because girls are not valued as highly as boys and marrying them off at a young age transfers the ‘economic burden’ to another family.” (World Economic Forum, author Kate Whiting)

I do not doubt the numbers, but he elephant in the room has never been mentioned. The world is awash with religious patriarchy and she simply says reasons “vary between communities” and “transfers the economic burden” What communities, why and who do you mean? If you are going to state a fact with statistics as though we as a society may be responsible for this without mentioning the most obvious root causes of the problem it becomes worthless feminist hogwash.

Most obviously, the Muslim and Hindu ideologies are primarily associated with young brides and the discrimination against women, however many of the Christian denominations maintain the ideology that woman was created as a helper to her husband, as the bearer of children, and as a keeper at home, and this ideal is even supported by some of the dedicated women of this faith. Therefore is it any wonder that women play second fiddle to men? And when the ideologies from the major religions have had women as subservient to men for thousands of years, obviously this attitude has spread throughout every society.

Feminist writers such as Kate Whiting who wrote this stuff are likely of a religious faith or do not want to offend those that are, as it is so much easier to just go across the board and blame men or communities and anything else for things that women have to suffer.

“Patriarchy is a social system in which men hold primary power and predominate in roles of political leadership, moral authority, social privilege and control of property. Some patriarchal societies are also patrilineal, meaning that property and title are inherited by the male lineage.” (Google)

“Most religions elevate the status of men over women, have stricter sanctions against women, and require them to be submissive. While there has been changes towards equality, religions overall still lag the rest of society in addressing gender issues. There are fundamentalists within every religion who actively resist change.”(Wikipedia)

This reason and many others where truth does not form part of women’s equality issues or where facts are not present will not help feminist groups and will only create stronger opposition to change. As humans are part of the animal kingdom known as the Hominidae family we show dominance hierarchy and it can be argued that hierarchies are a natural consequence of the evolutionary process. This however is another topic for another day.

A GEOGRAPHIC LESSON FOR THEISTS

The following in highlighted text is from a post by a Christian called James that is designed to target atheist’s, however he also targets his own Christian faith and either does not recognise this fact or he believes that his faith is somehow immune to the geography issue he has recognised.

“I’m not ruling out geography as something that influences religion, what I’m saying is, so what if it does.”

“So what if even the biggest predictor of a person’s religion is geography?”

Apart from the fact that geography obviously does predict most people’s religion, this indicates people are clearly indoctrinated into the traditional and prevalent regional religions often through many decades.

Would it mean that if geography is the biggest predictor of those who will hold a certain belief, then that belief is false?

Yes, because it definitely does not make the belief real and is a false belief in the ideological beliefs of particular god or gods being real because hundreds of different gods around the world are also claimed and only based on faith to be the genuine gods, If the god is exactly the same god for all the worlds religions it may have held some respect, however not for atheism because not one single god from the time when man first walked on the planet to the present day has any real evidence of existence outside of a theists brain.

If that were the case, we could simply lump atheism in with all other “religions” and say that geography is the single biggest predictor of whether a person will claim atheism.

“All the other religions,” but not with his own you will note.

Polls indicate that those born in China or the former Soviet Union, and certain other areas of Europe, are much more likely to be atheists than other areas of the globe (Major Religions of the World…, 2007).

This is true since communism was a dominating factor in these countries. In China July 1, 1921 the communist party was formed due to Inspiration from the Russian Revolution when in November 7, 1917 Lenin seized power.  Of course part of the communist doctrine was to promote atheism through the restrictions of organisations such as churches, academic learning institutions and of course banned many other groups, clubs and meetings where they believed political unrest could develop.

So what does that mean about atheism? Aren’t we forced by rationality to agree that it means nothing, other than the fact that most people, including atheists, adopt the beliefs of the people nearest to them? It says nothing whatever about the truth of the beliefs.”

Considering that atheism is the default position and is not an indoctrinated ideology and is simply a disbelief in any god or gods, and because in most English speaking countries with democratic governments where there are the most Christians and where atheist numbers are growing quite rapidly, I would say this statement is not accurate. Specifically this is because the only influence for theists to become atheists is their Bible, their church and maybe the odd dose of scientific truth.

Christianity is of course different as is suggested by this a blogger called Mel.

Mel “Another interesting point about this is that Christianity seems to be the most adaptable faith to diverse cultures around the world. Consider that it started in the Middles East in places like Turkey and Syria, even in parts of India. Then it spread to Europe, Africa, and, of course, the entire Western Hemisphere. The biggest single group of Christians are probably in China now. But when you look at the other primary world religions, the majority of followers are still in the parts of the world where they started.”

Of course all other religions are spreading quickly around the world. My answer to him as to why Christianity is more diverse and larger than the others was regulated by James, as it had to much historic truth, however you can read my comment below.

SKLYJD “One reason why Christianity is so diverse is that the British Empire over many hundreds of years was spread out throughout the populated world bought Christianity to many countries who had never heard of it. As they had so many countries to go to and many thousands of fanatical preachers who wanted to make their mark in the world is it not a wonder why it is the largest religion.”

The history lesson (a real one) for these American theists is that the British Empire covered 23% of the world population at the time, and by 1920, it covered 35,500,000 km2 (13,700,000 sq mi), 24% of the Earths total land area.  At it’s peak it was the biggest empire to ever exist. (Google)
