Benjamin had his baptism yesterday at 4:30p mass at St. Stephen's, SF
afterparty at 801! lots of shrimp and stuffed mushrooms (catering)
Halloween: Augustus was Bert (another was Ernie) adorable!
I went to Sara's and watched Invasion of the Body Snatchers. *
I handed out candy. 2 groups of kids, in Berkeley.
I read to Augustus from The Age of Atheism (hilarious, I thought)
(I would love to read to Benjamin. I thought I would see him more.)
I ate a pint of Ben and Jerry's and had a can of coke, too.
ugh, if I'm really prediabetic, it's kind of like suicide by sugar.
Going to (catholic) mass makes me feel like shit.
Catholic mass and my family is just too damn brainless/zombie.
I mean seriously. You guys really believe all that crap?
Weekly ritual pounds that nonsense into everybody's head-
and I'M the one that's crazy? really?
It's madness, and it just taint true.
love believes all things?
well, I don't. So I'm not love.
Not God, then.
But I'm not a demon or a vampire, either.
Just a goddamn humanist atheist, I guess.
It never ceases to amaze me how stupid people are, though.
Church sucks. And I'm right.
I'm not about to pretend to believe, for the sake of community, or anything else.
How is it that brainless zombie automatons have so much money?
It makes no sense.
But I'm down for love, community, peace, forgiveness, and other benefits of religion,
even if the dogma is mostly a sack of shit.
If God believes all things, he simultaneously believes both everything and nothing. Love is crazy, then. Truly insane. Clinically psychotic.
Immortality, for instance.
We're just bubbles. A form that pops into oblivion.
No one is going to heaven (or hell, either).
And Jesus is dead. Every prayer to him goes unheard.
It's just talking to yourselves, self-hypnosis.
And sin doesn't exist. Crime does, but not sin.
You can't have God's Law without a God.
It's only your conscience, silly. Santa for adults.
I'm pretty sure Souls and Angels are imaginary, too.
(the conventional definitions, anyway)
my (admittedly weird) thought (s-o-c) process on the topic:
-sole is a solitary fish, underfoot:
sol is sun, a homonym with son, light of the world, glowb...
the sun is a star- jesus christ superstar, you say?
born again, coming out into the light, after death, being reborn...
photons, wave and particle duality, jesus=15131=2
no mass but called "light" as if it has weight. mass=energy (e=mc2)
2= mom and dad
(light, force, beast, jew)
-Maybe angels were humanoid space-aliens with wings?
Maybe I'm forgetting that God is a "man of war", and that war is the art of deception. But I'm not fooled. No, not me. And I like to keep it real.
