Ep 278: Cool Whip

“Satan outed me as a cock smoking fairy.”

And now I present to you an excerpt from my conversations online with religious people. This is in response to me asking her how she got caught up with the fresh life church movement here. This is word for word in case you were curious. Keep in mind this person is an adult now…

“I see, well it’s funny you ask. Long story short, I as a child chose to believe in Christ. I also slowly began to realise that my mom was completely crazy and was isolated for most of my teen years except for being allowed to attend homeschool choir and church. I’m a musician so I just participated in the youth band…but I was misunderstood there by most everyone so I looked for a different church when I was 18, and eventually went to fresh life a little while before i moved away. I’ve been to the bottum of my existance and back, I’ve looked at my faith as objectively and cynically as possible, nearly leaving it once or twice, and I have found that I can’t just take somebody’s word for how life is, or who God is. It’s a road we all have to take on our own, and if you can find a humble trustworthy person to bounce ideas off of, it helps, but you gotta be able to tell if they’re full of crap or not. I’ve been pretty convinced so far that Levi Lusko of Fresh life is not full of it, so thats really how I was sucked in, and it’s the only church that I really miss. Of course I’m pretty sure I understand what you mean about the children, I was one of them, and I admit I’ve felt brainwashed sometimes. But if you look at those old people churches you might notice how dull and empty they are. I mean who wants to be around crabby old people who sing songs from the 1800’s? not me. And I think it’s really the parents responsibility to not shove anything down thier kids throats… if they do somewhere down the road i think the kids will still realise they have a choice and probably go for the opposite. But i don’t think the church has much control over that except in what they teach. I grew up with plenty of children in church who are now punk rockers, athiests, or whatever because they decided. Well I’ve probably rambled on enough.”

So I reply…

That is troubling to me. You never had a chance, you were the child of christian parents. You think you had a chance, but you never knew any different, and you had the fear put in you at a very early age.  You don’t take somebody’s word for what life is, you figure it out on your own. Saying it’s god is just a cop out to give responsibility to some made up being. Church is all you know, and to step away from that frightens you. The choice shouldn’t be either old people churches or fresh life church, it should be church or no church. All churches boil down to the same basic principles. Just because you are evolving a religion from something dull and boring to something not dull and boring, doesn’t change the fact that it’s still a religion. Different shapes of shit are still shit deep down inside. Kids don’t have a choice when they are indoctrinated from birth by being baptized and being forced to go to church, then asking them after a good 10 to 15 years of that whether or not they believe in god. Of course they do, because they are afraid to death that if they don’t, they will burn eternally in this made up place, that preachers invented to scare you into buying into their fake religion in the first place. It’s a very vicious cycle. I would recommend reading the god delusion or letter to a christian nation if you are into expanding your mind.

Ep 228: A Moment of Clarity

Play

“If the dick hole guy can do this I can do this.”

Everything is dying. From the moment of birth every carbon based life form counts the years which blur into months that dissipate into days which dissolve into hours that change into minutes which are made up of seconds that go tick tock, tick tock, counting down as our metabolism causes the cells that make up the substance of our material being to decay and whither into a worthless pile of sad memories. The older we get, the more we watch the clock do it’s thing as it has done for countless seconds in a never ending dance around the twelve sacred numbers. A very smart cartoon robot when asked the question of what time it was said, “Time is an abstract concept created by carbon based life forms to monitor their ongoing decay.” There is great truth in this quote, even if it does come from a robot. The only reason we have time is so we know how much longer we have left to play the game of life. Was there time before we came along and started keeping track of stuff? Who knows, and I have a headache right now, so I’m not even going to try and wrap mind around it. Basically, what it all boils down to is this. We are here for a limited time only. Some have longer than others, but it is the one thing we will all always have in common. We are always living from moment to moment, latching onto anything we can. Hopefully, during our last few seconds on this planet, we will finally achieve one final moment of clarity. A split second where suddenly everything becomes clear, and then… No one knows after that, not yet at least. But if you did know, it would kind of ruin the surprise.
