Lies

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.  ~  Hitler

Allegedly there are 8 types of lie ~ that is an oversimplification.  I don’t believe that you can simply categorise lies.  I believe that there are an infinite number of ways that we lie, and that we are lied to, and that most often we are lied to by omission. People just don’t admit to some things they don’t want us to know.

The slickest way in the world to tell a lie is to tell the right amount of truth at the right time ~ and then shut up.  ~  Robert A. Heinlein.

The worst lies of all are those we tell to ourselves, and again mostly these are lies of omission.  We refuse to remember some of the bad stuff we have done in our past, and we refuse to admit to ourselves the bad things we fully intend to do in the future.  And if anyone asks us about any of that, of course we shall lie and hotly deny our past, present, and probable future sins.

Probably the biggest lie being foisted upon the world at the moment relates to the cause of the fire at the medieval cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, which allegedly was an accidental electrical fire, or something like that.  I believe that like I believe Parisian women don’t smell of garlic and cigarettes, overlaid with lots of perfume.  But if I was a Frenchman in authority, I wouldn’t want to stir up even more sectarian hatred of moslems.

But that matters not one jot.  What really matters is how much of the truth we admit to ourselves, and how much of the truth are those we care for telling us.

We should stop expecting loyalty from people who won’t even give us honesty.

28 Days

It is not the length of life that matters, but the depth of life.

What would you do if you knew that you only had one month to live?  Or just one day ~ until noon?

Some say that they would finally say goodbye to all of their friends and family, put their affairs in order, and quietly sit down and wait for the grim reaper to call.

Others say they would tick off as many things on their bucket list as they could.  They forget that wherever they go they take their whole life along with them.

And then there are those facing certain death who retreat into denial with religion and a bottle of booze.

Not that I believe that I am anywhere near the end of days, but I’ve had to seriously accept that my time on this planet is numbered, and the count-down started the day I was conceived.

I get the feeling that I don’t belong here, that everything good is so hard to hear, they’re just not listening.  I’ve walked so far along the warrior’s path that sometimes I aim too high.  I get the feeling that I am among the lucky few who has been able to accept that winter comes eventually.

So, with the assumption that I have 28 Days to Live, how does that change what’s left of my life?

  • Money is worthless.
  • Possessions are useless.
  • Unhappiness is pointless.
  • Stale relationships don’t matter at all.
  • Negativity and judgementalism are a waste of time.

Only people, places, and things I do that bring me immediate happiness, contentment, and serenity deserve any place in what’s left of my life.  Making other people happy may give me vicarious satisfaction, but that matters not one jot.  Nothing lasts forever, people change their minds, and today is just another day.  Living life to the fullest, seizing the day, means that I will only be around those who can fill my life with a kaleidoscope of colour.

My castle is in the clouds, and if others don’t want to go there then they can fuck off and have a nice day without me.

Some men say that she holds their heart in their hands.  And, that if they can’t have her their life can never be complete.  All I know is that it will be all right without her, I will be as strong as I can be.

Sunday Prayer

Goddess, if there is a Goddess, please listen to my prayer.

Please help me to cleanse my body, mind, emotions, and spirit of the poisons that have infected and tortured me.

Please help me to cleanse myself of all that is no longer necessary in my life.  Help me towards a new beginning.

Help me to make good decisions, especially concerning what should happen when I am not around.

The Flat Earth Conspiracy

Those who are able to see beyond shadows will never be understood.

April Fools Day

The Earth from Space.  (that’s Atlanta GA in the centre)

A bunch of conspiracy theorists who persist in believing that the Earth is flat are planning a trip to Antarctica to see ‘the end of the world’.  I think they really mean the “edge of the world”, but you wouldn’t expect anyone who believes in a flat Earth to have a good grasp of semantics.

Good luck on that trip.  If the Earth really was as flat as a pancake they would never get there because all navigation by sea and air relies entirely on the fact that the Earth is an oblate spheroid ~ that is not at all flat.

Mind you, as the next meeting of the Flat Earth International Conference will be held in Dallas, Texas, the spiritual home of conspiracy theories.  I’m guessing that their meetings are filled with febrile debates about nothing that is within shouting distance of reality.  You know what?  I would have expected the Flat Earth Bunch to be headquartered in California, where they really do know how to party with psychoactive substances.

There is no evidence whatsoever for a flat Earth, other than the evidence of our own eyes when our feet are planted firmly on the ground.  In that case, when we look around us, the Earth does seem flat ~ other than hills and mountains, and valleys, and gorges…..  The Pythagorean theorem, one of the oldest mathematical proofs in Euclidian Geometry, is predicated on the Earth being flat.  However, Pythagoras falls apart when great distances across the Earth are involved, in which case we need to use spherical trigonometry.  (Which only works for big balls.)

As far back as Columbus in 1492 AD, navigators knew the Earth was a spheroid, although Columbus got the circumference badly wrong.  The Norse Vikings knew the Earth was a sphere when they travelled to America in about 1,000 AD.  The Ancient Greeks were thinking about a spherical Earth in the 6th Century BC, and before that the Phoenicians navigated great distances based on the idea that the Earth was a sphere.

The Moon is a sphere too

Only in the Bible is the idea of a flat Earth much popularised, and as we all know, everything in the bible can be treated as the Gospel Truth.  However, if you are interested in exploring the flat Earth conundrum, the Flat Earth Society has a cool website  https://www.tfes.org/

Some say that NASA’s sole reason for existence is to propagandize the public and promote this false ball-Earth heliocentric worldview.  And that there was never a moon landing, it was all shot in a studio in Culver City.  All I know is that some gullible fools are eager to believe the stupidest pseudo-scientific dross.  And the moon really is made of green cheese.

Eating Bread is Killing You

The truth doesn’t change just because you don’t want to hear it.

Wheat is routinely sprayed with a chemical that will give you cancer.

Glyphosate is legally classified as a carcinogen, and glyphosate is the main active ingredient of a weedkiller called Roundup.  A federal jury in California found that Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide was a substantial factor in causing Edwin Hardeman’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Monsanto, which is owned by the German chemicals company Bayer, is facing more than 9,000 similar lawsuits.  We all know that German chemicals companies have a very dark history.  In recent times the evil corporation Monsanto / Bayer has bullied scientists, suppressed evidence, and hid the cancer risks arising from Roundup / Glyphosate.

Even the US Environmental Protection Agency is not immune to collusion with Monsanto ~ the EPA lied when they stated that glyphosate is probably not carcinogenic to humans.  Monsanto knowingly lies when they say that Glyphosate has excellent environmental features….. and extremely low toxicity to mammals, birds, and fish.  Roundup was introduced in 1974, is used in 130 countries, to control weeds and improve the yield of more than 100 crops.  Every damn year in the USA, over 300 million pounds, (150,000 tons), of Roundup are sprayed on the crops you eat, especially wheat corn, soya, and canola, (from which we get the shit called canola oil).

People will have Roundup ready soya whether they like it or not.  ~  Ann Foster, spokeswoman for Monsanto.

That means that a hell of a lot of the everyday products you eat and drink are contaminated with a deadly, carcinogenic poisonous chemical.  Eating bread, cakes, cookies, anything with flour in it, anything with high fructose corn syrup in it, drinking beer with grains in it, using canola oil, are all seriously damaging your health.  Eat bread, drink beer, and be ill before you die sooner than you should.

There are more damn good reason that you shouldn’t eat bread; gluten sensitivity, wheat allergy, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and heart disease.  Bread is not the staff of life, bread is a killer food.

High fructose corn syrup will also kill you though; heart disease, obesity, cancer, dementia, liver failure, fatty liver, bad teeth…..  And, the average American consumes more than 60 pounds of this shit every damn year.  High Fructose Corn Syrup, and Cane Sugar are not the same thing, and the body handles them differently ~ cane sugar is safer, but more expensive.

Some pray, and give us our daily bread.  And some say that Roundup is completely safe to fish, birds, animals, and humans.  All I know is that I won’t eat shit.

Not the Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments are not supposed to be suggestions.

~

However, there are a few things in the Ten Commandments that give me a problem, not least all that God stuff.  For example; Thou shalt have no other Gods but me. Well, I don’t have a God at all, my personal deity and higher power is a Goddess, which kind of means that I’m continually breaking the First Commandment.

And again, I have a slight problem with the Sixth Commandment; Thou shalt not commit adultery. I guess most of the adults on the planet have broken this commandment, in one way or another, at one time or another, and I can’t get much worked up about that.

Nonetheless, every good man should have rules that he lives by, or he will eventually become a macho jerk, bully, coward, crook, wastrel, thug, and probably much worse.  Not only that, if a few good men don’t have rules they live by, then the whole world will soon descend into chaos.

Remember, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

My personal rules are;

  1. Do no harm.
  2. Do not lie.
  3. Do not steal.
  4. Do not judge.
  5. Do not be lazy.

If you liked, you could junk all five of my personal rules, and just live by the one rule that’s best for you;

Get your shit together.

Some say that the Ten Commandments are divinely revealed law.  And that if God had wanted us to live in today’s broken society they would have been Ten Suggestions.  All I know is that you are going to piss off a lot of people when you start doing what’s best for you.

Useless British Politicians

Self-Serving Useless Politicians are Destroying England’s Future

You can always tell when politicians are lying, because their lips will be moving.

There’s a thing called BREXIT, which is a kind of acronym for the exit of Great Britain from the European Union.  It’s been going on since the referendum on 23 June 2016, when 51.9% of the British people voted to get out of Europe all together.

Since then our utterly useless, supine Prime Minister, Mrs. Theresa May, has lied, procrastinated, and vacillated, doing bugger all about getting this country out of the European Union.  The Prime Minister has been defeated in one vote after another in parliament ~ firstly her original (very bad) exit deal with the European Union was rejected, then her (slightly) amended deal was rejected, and now the idea of leaving the European Union without an exit deal has also been rejected.

WTF do these members of parliament want?

However, the default legal position is that Great Britain will leave the European Union on March 29th, whether there is an exit deal in place or not.  To change that default leaving date will require a change in the law, and that’s not as easy as some stupid politicians think.

However, I have no doubt that our self-serving, dishonest, fucking useless parliament will find some way of delaying the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union ~ indefinitely.

The real deal is that NOBODY KNOWS WTF is going to happen over the next couple of weeks.  Add to that nobody knows WTF is going to happen in the weeks, months, and years following our supposed exit date on March 29th.

Except that the English public will be voting a hell of a lot of these fucking useless politicians out of office come the next general election.

Some say that Brexit is a confusing mess which ever way you voted.  And that Brexit is just like unfriending Europe on Facebook.  All I know is that if the self-serving politicians don’t get on with it there will be Hell to pay.

Some people are psychologically incapable of telling the whole truth about anything.

The Church Fears Women

Remember your dreams and desires, and fight for them, no matter what.

Following on from my post on The Myth of Sin, it is obvious to me that the established religions, especially the Catholic Church, fear strong, independent, liberated, sexual women.  The clergy also fear real, mature women ~ else why would they so often get into serious trouble for homosexual relationships, underage sex, and sexually assaulting choirboys.

If the church and a majority of fearful men had their way, women would have remained uneducated, oppressed, repressed, undignified, deprived of their freedom, robbed of their independent thoughts, and be allowed to speak only on sufferance.  I firmly believe this is because the church is afraid of the power of women, and a majority of pathetic men are just afraid of women in every way imaginable.

Men know than women are more centered, more serene, more patient, more emotional than they can ever be.  They know that women are more resistant to disease, she will live longer, she is more resilient than any man.  Because of all this, and because of her beauty, she can fulfill a man’s life immensely.  A woman can complete a man’s life like a lock completes a key.  And this makes weak men afraid because deep down they know that a woman is more than they are.  A strong mature woman will choose the most beautiful but the most dangerous path of emotions, sentiments, moods ~ a man, any man, will tend to choose the straight line path to his wants, needs, and desires.  Men tend to choose the shortcuts in Life.

Even the arts have been dominated by men, which is criminal because the strong right brains of women allow them to be far more artistic and creative than the linear Yes / No brain of a man.  Had they not been repressed, how many female DaVinci, Michelangelo, or Shakespeare might there have been?  Through the ages the artistic establishment, just like the church, the business world….. have all prevented women from achieving their true potential.

The life of women has been corrupted by fearful men telling them things that are not true, making women a slave to men, reducing women to second-class citizens in society.  Weak men try to make women absolutely inferior, vulnerable, and dependent ~ and perhaps only begin to treat a woman well when they want sex from her.

Today I am fortunate.  I am no longer afraid of women, and I see them as more than my equal, but different from me.  Any women can be as intelligent as me, but her intelligence is different from mine, and I welcome that.  I no feel no need to manipulate women and change them into something that is not a real, mature, capable, independent woman at all.
