Are you interested in expressing your views on news-related events? Are you interested in controversial topics such as religion, science vs religion, the progressive movement, identity politics, nationalism, the dangers of fanaticism, etc.? If you’re interested in any of these subjects, then this site may be of interest to you.
I started this Blog just a few years back to discuss the items expressed above as well as sports, philosophy and other topics of interest to me. I also began to post photos of sexy, provocative women for two reasons:
- I like attractive women.
- Being that most of the topics that interest me also interest other men, I realized that adding photos of attractive women increased my “audience” and provided an opportunity for greater interaction regarding the various topics showcased in this Blog.
Now, for some of my views:
I’m interested in both science and religion; in favor of one, opposed to the other. And no, I personally don’t believe that science and religion can co-exist. I am specifically interested in the subject of religion, not because I’m a religious person; quite the contrary. My interest in religion has to do with a sense of curiosity as to why such large numbers of people still believe in gods and the supernatural. I can understand religious doctrines prevailing in the more conventional societies throughout the world, but quite frankly I am amazed by the number of Americans who still believe in a personal God; the stories in the Bible; the resurrection of Jesus; heaven and hell, etc. After all, we are living in the 21st century as well as in the most materialistic and advanced country on the planet.
I for one have strong convictions regarding these issues and would like to hear from those of you who are equally opinionated. What is important (to me) is not whether your beliefs concur with mine, but rather that they can be discussed intelligibly.
The purpose of this Blog is to create a forum where people can openly express their beliefs and personal convictions on a myriad of topics, such as: how much of religion is demographic; how did the universe come into being; why are we here; did we evolve or were we created; are we alone in the universe; does God exist; if God does exist is there a Divine Plan; if God doesn’t exist is there a purpose for life or are we merely a cosmological (evolutionary) coincidence; etc.? As one can clearly see these are just some of the endless questions contemplated by inquisitive thinkers. An open discussion on current world affairs and more specifically, politics in the U.S. is also an important component, if not the most important component, of this Blog.
Now I’d like to share a little bit about myself so that you can get a sense of my general view on religious and political matters:
As you have probably figured out by now I am an atheist; not an agnostic, an atheist. I do not believe that God exists. Not only do I not believe in a personal God such as the God of Christianity – one who supposedly created us, looks out for us and intervenes in our affairs upon request – I also do not believe in a higher intelligence, power, spirit or anything else resembling a cosmic administrator. Naturally, I also do not believe in the concept of heaven and hell, or that such places exist. Furthermore, I do not believe in an afterlife of any kind. In my opinion, upon our death we just cease to exist, period; just as all other living things cease to exist. Other creatures do not have souls that ascend to heaven or descend to hell, and neither do we.
Instead I believe in science. I believe that the conditions were “right” for life here on earth (and more than likely other worlds) and that we simply evolved over time, by pure chance, just as all other life forms on earth have evolved throughout the 4-billion-plus years of our planet’s existence.
Well, there you have it. As is obvious my view on matters such as the existence of God and the futility of organized religions is quite unpopular. Nevertheless, they are the result of honest inquiry and much deliberation. I encourage you to check this Blog in the future for quotes and articles written by prominent individuals who offer their thoughts on many aspects of the supernatural realm. You will also find links to interesting websites as well as entertaining and informative videos.
Changing topics, I never cared much for politics. One reason is that I painted politicians with a broad brush – all corrupt. As such, I never voted. I was however encouraged to vote in 2008 by colleagues at work. In contrast to friends and family, I voted for Barack Obama and his message of “change”. Except that “change” never happened, and what change there was, was for the worse. I was going to vote republican in 2012, but when McCain selected Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential running mate I quickly changed my mind and decided not to vote, not because she’s a woman, but because she’s a ding-bat, and Obama wasn’t about to get my vote during his second term.
Fast-forward to 2016… I didn’t vote for Donald Trump but believed he would win. I also (definitely) didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton. Come 2020, I will absolutely vote for Trump. Seeing the immorality of liberal politicians such as Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff and the entire litany of Leftist presidential candidates is quite revolting. The Brett Kavanaugh witch hunt, the open border/illegal immigration fiasco and the Robert Mueller/Russian conspiracy hoax are examples of just how immoral democrat party members are. Add to this people such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Presley and the liberal media mob including CNN and MSNBC (to name a couple) and voting republican in the next election is a no-brainer.
Politics and other more relevant issues aside, I enjoy sports, especially cycling and tennis, although football is my favorite spectator sport. I typically play in three or four fantasy football leagues each year. Additionally, my hobbies include playing chess and collecting fountain pens and folding knives.
