Worth and Humanitarianism

I will not live forever. All of the people around me will not live forever, either. There have been various groups to assert that there is eternal life, "eternal salvation," but such claims bring with them no evidence and often find themselves in mockery of reason and intellectual examination. However, the point of this essay is not to criticize religion, nor is it to criticize religionists. Whether or not there is an afterlife, there is the life: our daily troubles and hardships, that stress and strengthen us; our daily loves and admirations, that frustrate and fill us with warmth. We are all mortal beings, and we will all eventually perish, by whatever means it is.

Why I Cannot Be A Christian

"Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear... fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. Fear is the parent of cruelty, and therefore it is no wonder if cruelty and religion have gone hand in hand." -- Bertrand Russell

A Whisper to a Friend

It seemed improbable that I would come to be their ally. He was arrogant but intelligent, vulgar but precise. In his character, there were to be found the vices that I once exhibiting years ago. As I tried with focus to eliminate these attributes in myself, I tried to develop my complimentary traits. I believed that the greatest social change that can come to a society will come from those who are patient, willing, and intelligent. No advancement of civilization can come when the rabble rousers are blindfolded, when the people become moths, following wherever the light goes. This man and I, we hardly ever mingled, until a great deal of time had passed. He had known of me, and I had known of him. We both had the same interests, the same desire for a society that did not abuse its animals, for a social construct that did not set up the exploitation of laborers. But then the occasion would have for it that we would meet and exchange our thoughts. One of the finest moments of our lives, we confided in each other, was when we realized the brutality, the insane logic and reasoning which had been used to justify the greatest cruelties, the vicious and savaged nature of our society -- and both of us, upon learning this for ourselves, immediately had given up such practises of brutality.

Using Fascism to Destroy Fascism

It is admitted by anyone with an educated opinion that racism is harmful. It is a negative aspect of any society that it can be found in. Racist attitudes are simply an additional reason for people to hate. For some people, it is an additional reason to become violent. Whether attitudes of racism are found in mothers or fathers, daughters or sons, girlfriends or boyfriends, no matter where they are found, the belief has always been cruel and antisocial. In some families, a father will disown his son, should he date a black girl. If the laws weren't as humane as they are today, certain businesses would deny service or employment to racial minorities. In some universities today, students will be expelled if they date outside of their own race. Contrary to popular opinoin, universities do not exist to give the next generation the chance to create and express, but they exist to indoctrinate the next generation in to the habits and prejudices of their forefathers. No matter where it is found, and no matter whom it is found in, racism has always acted as an enemy of all that is good, kind, just, and gentle.

Pornsite Review: Hammer Time

The Thrillhammer (http://www.thethrillhammer.com). It sounds either like a new roller coaster (maybe it is depending on your perspective) or some kind of kinky superhero. Actually, it’s a website that showcases women getting off on what I can only describe as elaborate sex machine contraptions. A whole series of them. The Thrillhammer is also a name that applies to the machines themselves. More on that later...
