It may be slightly ironic that such a beautifully crafted and eye openingly breathtaking spectacle of amazement and awe that is David Attenborough’s ‘Africa’ which has annoyed me immensely, but answer me this:
How, if God created the Earth, is it acceptable to have one rule for one animal and not for others?
Humans, out of millions of species of animals that roam the planet, are the only imbeciles who walk around dressed in absolutely ridiculous clothes chanting hymns, prayers and other nonsensical crap to an imaginary Deity who if in fact is real… Doesn’t give a shit!
You don’t seen flocks of seagulls all stood lined up at a congregation on a Sunday morning dressed in robes and humming out of tune. They are too busy living as nature intended; stealing chips from fat tourists.
Before I go any further, I must admit that I agree with the Ten Commandments, but believe they should be renamed ‘The Ten things that will piss everyone off and most likely land you in jail or dead’ as they are pretty much common sense. Aren’t they?
Thou shalt not murder.
Okay, well does this mean that the Lion who just ate a Gazelle’s head over on the African savannah is going to hell? Does this mean that every time a cat pounces on a mouse, lucifer is cackling to himself and ticking off yet another creature that will endure endless torture and suffering? Of course sodding not.
That’s about as accurate as saying… ‘If you eat my last pasty then Jimmy Saville is going to insert his fingers into you when you sleep’. You have no evidence that this will happen, but by writing it on a piece of paper… It must be true.
Some arse clearly wasn’t getting the respect he deserved one day and made up a load of codswallop to scare people into listening and most importantly, obeying.
Like Catholicism, really? God was sat there one day playing with a condom was he and all of a sudden decided contraception is evil? Bollocks. Contraception wasn’t the case back Ye Olde times, so how did this get interpreted? I think the leader of the religion just wasn’t getting any and decided to punish all those who were by making it a sin to have sex.
Ooooo Pro-Creation is bad because its out of wedlock.
Well tell that to all the Neanderthals who are being spit roasted (take that as you like) by lucifer because they happened to not have invented marriage yet. Poor bastards didn’t stand a chance… You know with not being able to communicate as words hasn’t been invented yet. And of course your next door neighbour wanted to club you to death if you poked your head out of the cave.
Am I the only one who thinks all this ceremonial shit is just a giant waste of everyone’s time and it simply set up to get all the minions known as people on this planet to do what they say?
Maybe there is a god, but I’m sure the daddy mac doesn’t go around reeling off bibles left, right and centre?
We are one of millions of species on this planet so how do we know that the ever omnipotent, omnipresent, benevolent guy in the sky, isn’t in fact a giant spider? Or a cow?
You sure as fuck wouldn’t be praying to a giant tossing Spider now would you? Furthermore, I think RE in schools should be banned and replaced with common sense lessons. Or social philosophy, where people can ask the questions about society they want answers too, and not about some floating berk who apparently will send us all to become hamburgers if we sneeze in the wrong direction.
Excuse me for being a cynic but if you believe in some all knowing git who sends his mysterious, arsehole children down to earth to proclaim his will, and then for 2013 years give us nothing but earthquakes, death and Nicki Minaj, you need you head cracking open and searched for peanuts! I’m not being funny, but if my son was nailed to a cross for being a ‘do-gooder’ and I possessed the ultimate powers the universe… I would AT LEAST have some sort of phallic object grow from the heads of all Romans as punishment! My wrath would be a little more fierce than simply wobbling around in eternal bliss and forgiving those who wrong my will! Am I supposed to believe that God loves all his children… Including Jimmy Savile and Hunny Boo Boo? Okay sure…
So next time you see a heartbreaking scene of a mother elephant having to leave her dead calf behind on the drought stricken land to avoid her own death like that of the BBC’s Africa…
I want you to immediately go and punch a priest in the head.
Food for thought.
