Buddhists


2/2/15

Just when I think that there is no possible way
that religious idiots could surprise me any more,
I read something like this ...

Mummified monk not dead - he's in a rare meditative state

China is also well-known for promoting credulous acupuncture studies
so delusion is just as common there ... as it is here in the States

I used to think that Buddhism was above all those other religions;
then they have to go out of their way to prove ... that they aren't



Well okay, Buddhism is certainly far more moral than the Abrahamic religions,
but stories like that one demonstrate the weaknesses inherent in all religions.

Buddhists attack Muslim minority in Myanmar

There are 2 ways to look at this ...
1) Either religious extremism can appear in any religion (even Buddhism)
no matter how peaceful it claims to be, or
2) Muslims are capable of pissing off just about anyone in the world.

Myanmar's majority Buddhists accused of killing minority Muslims

Time to put on our critical thinking caps:

Yes, it's true that majority religions usually attack minority religions.
But before accepting this story as unbiased or accurate,
there are a few other factors to consider.

Remember the recent attack by Palestinians on Jerusalem?
Remember the deafening silence from critics of Israel that followed?
And then when Israel finally fired back,
the world's anti-Semites howled in indignation
that the Israelis would fire missiles into Gaza.
In other words, sometimes reporters conveniently leave out the beginning,
because it may show that the people they are trying to portray as victims,
are actually the instigators

I don't know. What I do have to go on is:
this report, combined with my knowledge of Buddhists and Muslims.
This report reads backwards from the way I would expect,
based on my knowledge of those two religions.
That causes me to see a big red flag.
Maybe the report is true. But personally, I plan to reserve judgment
until more facts come forth.

Cults


10/9/16

It's easy to find fault with most of the world's religions.
The list of atrocities connected to Christianity, Islam, etc. seems endless.
The Jain religion, practiced mainly in India, on the other hand,
seems far more benevolent by comparison.

But now, the horror of religion
strikes even the gentle Jain community

This handsome devil is Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
He has 50 million followers and is a millionaire, many times over.
He is known as "The Guru in Bling"
Guess what he talked 400 morons into doing?



Darwin Awards are given to those individuals who contribute most to humanity
by removing themselves from the gene pool in the most stupid ways imaginable.
This year they have announced that there is a tie for the award ...

to be shared equally among the 400 winners

UPDATE (8/28/17)

As if this piece of crap hasn't already stunk up the joint bad enough,
now 38 people are dead after rioting, because ...

their hero got convicted of rape

These people are India's version of America's Fox News Fanatics.
What tiny analytical skills they do possess
are completely overwhelmed by their emotions
which are controlled by those who are manipulating them.

Time to print out more Darwin Awards

Mental Disorders


10/31/16

Tell me if this definition taken from Wikipedia
reminds you of any particular group of people:

"Schizophrenia is a mental disorder
often characterized by abnormal social behavior
and failure to recognize what is real.
Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking,
auditory hallucinations, lack of motivation,
and reduced social engagement and emotional expression.
Diagnosis is based on observed behavior and the person's reported experiences.
"

Let's analyze that definition and see how it fits religious believers.

Schizophrenia (2 pages)

Conclusion

So, about 90% of the human race is schizophrenic ... by definition.
But if you dare to point that out,
you might become acquainted with the definition of another word ...

Here is evidence to support the accusation
that indoctrinating children with religion is child abuse.



However, it should be noted that not all child abuse is equivalent.
These parents are not intending to abuse their children
and that is a huge difference between this, and other forms of abuse.

Christian Projection

That essay provided an exellent example of what religion does to the brain.
Religion renders it little more than a pile of superstitious, psychotic mush.

From Dictionary.com "psychosis":
"A mental disorder characterized by symptoms,
such as delusions or hallucinations,
that indicate impaired contact with reality.
"

Yep ... nailed it

The Pew Research Center releases the latest data on the extent of ghost worship.

Worldwide Religiosity

Summary from the article:
"As of 2010, the demographic study based on analysis of
more than 2,500 censuses, surveys and population registers finds:

Belief                  Number         Pct.
Christians           2.2 billion     32%
Muslims              1.6 billion     23%
Nonreligious      1.1 billion     16%
Hindus                1.0 billion     15%
Buddhists           0.5 billion       7%
Miscellaneous    0.5 billion       7%
Jews                   14 million      .2%

As dismal as it may first appear, it is important to remember
that as far as we know, it's the best shape the civilized world has ever been in.
(Additionally, it should be noted that Buddhists don't worship Gods.
That bumps the religiously rational crowd up to about 23%).

Gallup Polls Americans on Religiosity



The small print in the picture shows
that Islam is the second largest religion in 20 states;
Judaism is second in 15 and Buddhism is second in 13.

Almost every ultra religious state is in the South;
that's why they call it "The Bible Belt."

What an embarrassment.
Maybe we should have let the South secede when they wanted to:
our national I.Q. would have jumped 20 points in one day.
But if that had happened, who would have freed the slaves? God?
Not likely. He was all for it.

Pat Robertson said that God sent an earthquake to Haiti in retaliation, 200 years later,
for Haitians becoming the only nation to successfully revolt
and free itself from its slave owners.
Robertson said they succeeded because they made a pact with the Devil.
So by Robertson's own admission,
the Devil freed the slaves, and God punished them for it.

Did I get a little off track?
