    Blind Faith Psychosis

    psychosis and money

    what is it then that makes them pray
    that makes them creep crawl all day
    that makes them read some silly script
    their pride confidence slyly stripped

    what is it then that transfers their minds
    to heavens angels spiritual kinds
    to attend cathedrals in little groups
    then dress in robes as elitist troops

    what is it then that makes them build
    on fertile land where food was tilled
    huge mosques cathedrals too
    just to sing confess anew

    does it help in anyway
    to wile away the hours of day
    dressed in best on their knees
    praying to anything making pleas

    is it selfishness that makes them think
    we all need them to cower shrink
    on our behalf at their request
    so that our souls be sublimely blessed

    the whiff of selfishness stirs the air
    i think itís just themselves they care
    the work is easy less to think
    from competition they wilt shrink

    this god they advocate with fuss
    when ask for proof they wonít discuss
    o proof o proof what for you need
    the devils home youll go with speed

    my lucid mind begins to stir
    im in the hands of a blackmailer
    i only ask for what your sales
    they came back as hard as nails

    so business then shall prevail
    in woolworths by an honest sale
    the church an inquisition i think
    proof of god surely brinks

    i'm convinced there is nothing up there that gives a damn about anything down here

    praying is primitive-even childish

    John, I'm a great believer, in when your dead that's it mate, because from my own experience there is no I know who's left this earth animal or human has made an appearance afterwards and told me otherwise. Religion of all faiths are man made rules to keep the minions in their place, for the benefit of their creator.

    I believe that Religion is just a case of right and wrong, justice and injustice, so if you can allus try n do the right thing, actually impossible! But to try is the main thing, and always fight for justice, then that sums up Religion to me.
    As for when yer fried bread, like all living things we just become part of the compost system which helps to promote new growth, so as far as I,m concerned enjoy theesen as much as the can befoor tha becomes a bag o shite!

    John, looks like we're all singing from the same sheet mate, you can be a good person without religion. And I have known some sworn Christians who haven't got a kind bone in their body.

    RE classes at the school I went to in Lyme Regis for a while,(expelled)were great as they were taught by 'Doc' White,a mortar board and gown wearing Gallipoli veteran,who didn't need much encouragement to pull up a sandbag and swing the lamp!I don't remember any religious teaching in any of his lessons,but remember many of his tales from the trenches.

    Re: Blind Faith Psychosis

    A tribe in Africa believes that witches assemble for huge banquets where they devour their victims. Many will say a friend of a friend has seen these witches flying over the village at night, sitting on a banana leaf and throwing magical darts at unsuspecting victims.


    A prominent Cambridge 'Christian' theologian offers, "this is why anthropology is so difficult, having to explain how people can believe such nonsense?"


    Of course the theologian's own religious beliefs are far from nonsense as below demonstrates( or in my opinion rather does not)


    The Christian theologian probably believes that:


    A man was born to a virgin mother with no biological father involved many years ago


    A fatherless man who raised Lazarus from the dead, even though Lazarus was decayed and stinking


    A fatherless man who himself came back from the dead after being buried for three days


    A fatherless man who after a time walked to the top of a hill and was bodily carried into the sky and disappeared


    You can silently converse with the fatherless man who disappeared and his father, who is also himself, and he will hear you at the same time as hearing everyone else in the World who believes and is simultaneously silently conversing with him and he may act upon these converses(thoughts/prayers)


    If you do something bad or good the fatherless man will see even if no one else does and will punish/reward you accordingly, even after your death


    The fatherless man's virgin mother did not die, but was taken bodily into heaven


    Bread and wine, blessed by a priest, 'become' the body and blood of the fatherless man who was buried, came alive again and disappeared atop a hill skywards


    Just maybe it's a case of pot, kettle?




    Loosely taken from an anecdote from Boyer, in 'The God Delusion' by Richard Dawkins 2006
