A Book Against A Book (Open Post)

I labelled this as "Open Post" because I will still be updating this post as I go through the book.

I'm currently reading Sam Harris' Letter to a Christian Nation. It's a (atheist) book full of arguments against Christian claims. This post will just be like a notepad of points that really hit me. Of course you can read the book yourself for complete information.

1. Deuteronomy 13:6, 8-15.
"[On non-believers] But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die."

Seriously?! That is just SICK. Is that what your god teaches you?!?! Kill people?!

2. Leviticus 25:44-46.
"Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids."

Bondmen/bondmaids, by the way, are SLAVES. So yea, your book is pro-slavery.

3. Christians crusade against HPV vaccine. (Source)
The human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine prevents infection with certain species of human papillomavirus associated with the development of cervical cancer, genital warts, and some less common cancers.

And Christian groups are against it because they "want sex to remain as scary as possible". That's dumb. So you'd rather let your wives and daughters die of cancer?! The HPV vaccine doesn't encourage people to have sex, hormones do. Crusade against that.

4. Deuteronomy 22:13-21
"But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die."

Wow, good luck getting married ladies.

Religious Schizophrenia?

Definition (source)
Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by a disintegration of thought processes and of emotional responsiveness.


Symptoms: (source)

-Intense and excessive preoccupation with religion or spirituality
-Frequent moves, trips, or walks that lead nowhere
-Delusions of reference- thinking that random events convey a special meaning to you.
-Religious delusions- that you are Jesus, God, a prophet, or the antichrist.
-Delusions of grandeur- the belief that you have an important mission, special purpose, or are an unrecognized genius, or famous person.
-Auditory hallucinations can be either inside the person's head or externally.
-Visual hallucinations operate on a spectrum.


What if religious idols and leaders were just suffering from schizophrenia? What if they were just like Hulon Mitchell, Jr. or Shoko Asahara, our modern day false prophets? Don't we think these people who claim to be sons of "God" are funny and stupid?

Masasabi Mo Ba? (Lyrics)

Di mapigil ang pusong ibigin ka
Bakit ba laging hanap ka?
Maging sa aking pagtulog ay panaginip ka
Talaga yatang minamahal kita

Ngunit mayro'ng takot na nadarama
Laging may tanong sa puso ko
Sa habang buhay ba'y laging ikaw lang at ako
Hanggang sa kailan ma'y hindi magbabago

(Chorus)
Masasabi mo bang tanging ako
Sa bawat sandali, iibigin mo
At di pagpapalit kahit kanino man,
Pag-ibig mo ba'y ganyan?
Laging tapat kailan pa man

Ngunit mayro'ng takot na nadarama
Laging may tanong sa puso ko
Sa habang buhay ba'y laging ikaw lang at ako
Hanggang sa kailan ma'y hindi magbabago

(Bridge)
Maipapangako ba na di mo sasaktan
Nais ko na makita at mapatunayan
Ang pab-ibig mo'y tunay bang walang hanggan
At hanggang langit ba ang iyong pagmamahal

Masasabi mo bang tanging ako
Sa bawat sandali, iibigin mo
At di pagpapalit kahit kanino man,
Pag-ibig mo ba'y ganyan
Walang katapusan
Lagi ka bang tapat
Hanggang sa magpakailan man

Napansin ko kasi wala pang lyrics na available sa net e ang ganda talaga ng lyrics.. The song is in Rachelle Ann Go's latest album "Unbreakable".

Horsemaning!

Move over Planking, Horsemaning is the new internet craze! Its kinda like a fake beheading pose. It involves two persons: one laying down with his/her head hidden, then another one with only his/her head shown. Here's a sample from me and my sister, Barbie(she's the head):

Warning: New Cashier Modus Operandi?

My mom went to a local telecom branch to pay for our phone bills amounting to Php 14,500.00. So she gave the cashier Php 15,000.00, thus she should have Php 500 change.

Cashier: "Ma'am, kulang po ng Php 1,000" (Ma'am, you're Php 1,000 short.)
Mom: "15 yan miss." (I gave you 15 thousand.)
Cashier: "Kulang pa po e." (It's really not enough.)
Mom: "15 na talaga yan, paki bilang mo ulit." (I'm sure I gave you 15 thousand. Please count it again.)
Cashier: "Ay,sorry po. Nahulog lang po pala sa may paa ko." (Oh I'm sorry, the bill fell on the floor.)

If my mom wasn't sure of how much money she carried that day, she could've given the cashier another thousand. Of course we're not sure if the cashier did that on purpose or if it was an honest mistake. But still, it's a nice strategy since the customers can't really see what's under the counter. Just be careful and always count your money.

Disney, why didn't you tell me the truth?!

Hold onto your childhood 'cause mine just got blown up.




Ariel didn't really end up marrying Eric. She saw Eric marrying another chick. Someone (Ursula, I presume) offered her a knife so she can stab Eric to death. But, probably because of love, she couldn't do it. So she commits suicide instead.







Snow White didn't really wake up from a kiss. She woke up because she was being carried by the prince into his horse.













Now this is the biggest shocker. Sleeping Beauty got RAPED. She was asleep for so long that her dad raped her, she gave birth to two kids (while sleeping)!!!







Well Cinderella's safe. Its the stepsisters's story that's been kept from us. So the stepsisters tried to fit the slippers but obviously it didn't fit their feet. So they cut off parts of their feet but some birds saw this and the birds pecked on the sisters' eyes. They ended up as blind beggars.




I know you might not believe me (trust me, I wish they weren't true). But hey, I just read it here. Good luck gettin' over it.
