LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE! RIGINAL.
Pincchioizms (the fine art of telling fibs) seem to grip a lot of people by their elongated noses and their short and curly denials.Why the hell do adults lie? Kids are easy to trip up but if allowed to and shored up by forgiving/doting parents,harmless occasional lies can turn into a lie-stoked pathological mayhem which in turn opens the door to such employment opportunities; a Politician, when adulthood and a sense of 'wrong' is achieved.
I'm only kidding of course, a politician is a very bad example...for any of us to follow! I mean they are... Read More
From a philosophical point of view, nothing is forbidden. The word itself implies that something is prohibited because a higher authority in a position of power over others has deemed it so. Historically, monarchs, dictators and religious leaders of repressive patriarchal regimes have kept the masses, especially women, from access to knowledge and education solely to maintain ignorance and control their role in society. The male and female principal, when balanced, creates the strongest union of human potential. Regrettably, there hasn’t been enough equilibrium between them, and as... Read More
“If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.” ~William Blake
Contemplating this quote kindled a heated debate between my Reason and my Spirit. My Reason shot the opening salvo in this uncivil war for my mind:
Reason: This is pure poetical nonsense, and I refuse to waste time trying to decipher it.
Spirit: Don’t trivialize what you don’t understand, you dismissive prick. Just because you can’t submit it to your rationality and logic doesn’t necessarily make it nonsense.
Reason: Look around, dipshit. Rationality... Read More
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~Buddha
This profoundly obvious bit of ancient wisdom from the holy lips of the Buddha has evolved into a clichéd piece of popular advice in our modern society. Whenever people are preoccupied with something, we automatically instruct them to “Live in the now.” But don’t we all just naturally do this? Isn’t our default mental setting to pay attention to the present moment?
No, actually. Over several days of contemplating these words of wisdom I found that I rarely concentrate... Read More
This is a continuation from: Can Science Prove Parapsychology?
Those who are neither religious nor interested in philosophical questions believe that what they experience with their senses is reality itself. They feel that the world exists independent of their senses: when they see a flower it is because there is a flower; the existence of the inside of a brick is not a model but the way bricks work, and an electron is not a model but an actual practical.
They will not deny that human senses can be fooled and do not always convey the true world, and sensual distortions, such as... Read More
It's time to get philosophical.You know, all thoughtful and stuff.I've been wondering, am I an artist? Is art something one can express without an innate desire to call it art? I really have very little interest in conventional art. I find some paintings interesting, and I enjoy beauty in any form, but I have never appreciated any piece merely because it is art, or have I?
I immensely enjoy photography. I have since I was quite young. My dad taught me how to use film SLR systems sometime around the age of 10, maybe younger; I don't recall precisely. Since then, I have been obsessed with... Read More
The wonderful thing about being a human is that we have the abilities to think and reason. We are a unique life form indeed in that sense, more than just the intention to survive and reproduce like the rest of the living things on this blue planet we thrive for knowledge too. If it wasn’t the case we won’t be where we are now, all these discoveries and inventions, advancement in science and technology gave us a totally new outlook towards ourselves and as well as the universe we live in. Now we are moving forward in a fare pace in every aspects of life and so the need for revolutionizing the... Read More

The world we live in currently, one would be very hard pressed to experience rational peace and genuine freedom. "Peace", is a rare and almost extinct commodity. It is a shadow in the memory of humanity, a mere moment in the blink of an eye that we seldom...
Nice piece Credo as usual. You mention in context at the end "for fear of making war with the Gods." The keystone of peace lies crumbling,simply because the 'Gods of war' reign supreme despite race, religion,etc. Hypothetically if religion didn't exist...
I have serious doubts about the reality of Christ, but I have no doubt that if he existed, he did not look the way as the image commonly depicted in the U S and the rest of the West does. As the early Christians made war on pagan civilizations and cultures,...
