Welcome to the world of cynicism.
Don't worry, in time watching all the chumps get owned is extremely entertaining. Sad......but entertaining!
welcome to earth.
I've lost all ability to trust anything.
I've been lied to all my life. They tell me everything will be fine if I put my faith in god, the government, or science. I find it all to be a lie. I'm tired of having to sift through the piles and piles of absolute crap to find the one grain of truth. Why can't we just be honest about things?
Part one: God or No God?
Both sides make a compelling argument and both sides lie their pants off. Many religious zealots, regardless of their religion, pick and choose which part of their holy book they choose to follow -- on almost a daily basis. One day, you are commanded to love and not judge, the next you're commanded to judge and hold contempt. Which is it? It can't be both at the same time!
Atheists, don't think for a second that I've forgotten about you. You guys gripe and complain about christians proselytizing constantly while using the exact same methods of conversion. You use some sort of faulty logic that makes it ok for you to do something as long as it's not religious. Your god is science -- and that's just another thing that I can't trust.
Part two: THIS ... IS ... Science?
Global warming! Global cooling! The earth is filled with molten lava! The earth is hollow! Science proves alien life! Science disproves alien life! HIV is real and causes AIDS! AIDS has never been linked to HIV, which has never been isolated or proven to exist!
These are just a few examples of garbage science that is practiced today. There used to be a scientific method, where one conducted experiments and followed specific tests to make prove things. Now all of the scientific data is so highly politicized and obscured by bureau-crazy that none of these "scientific facts" can be proven or linked to any legitimate studies -- which leads us to government.
Part three: Poli-tricks
In my opinion, the only difference between democrats and republicans are the steps that they take to bypass the constitution. They both have the same ultimate goal: a facist dictatorship. No one believed me when I told them that Obama would just be another Bush -- and here we are. Spying, war, corporate-sponsored politicians, corporate officials placed in high-ranking government positions. It's all the same! Nothing has changed! Then we're told to vote if we don't like the system. What they don't tell you is that voting fuels this corrupt system.
Then you have the everday joe republicrats and demicans that are so brainwashed and convinced of the supremacy of their party that they can't see anything past their own colon. They worship their political gods and masters like good little slaves without ever realizing that this government is slowly killing them and taking away everything that makes people individuals.
I can't trust anything or anyone. I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
