Alas, with our intelligence and recognizing the problem with death is that it is virtually impossible to imagine what nothing is like. It is
impossible. As our brain being the software to life our body is the hardware. What happens when that software is deleted? Kaboom. Hard concept to roll
around the knot and I know we’ve all been there and done it.
My theory if this is true, which I 99.9% believe it is not but there is always that .1% bugger in the way…
Is that if we became 0. We don’t see black for eternity we don’t see purple for eternity in fact we don’t see feel hear breath taste smell touch
anything for – eternity. Our software becomes 0 and seizes to exist, there is no more. There never was anything. That is that.
And I don't believe that.
So. We have Buddhists. I like Buddhists! In fact, I personally believe they are closest to whatever the big special is that most of us hope for or
look for throughout our lives. Reincarnation, Spirituality, Harmony, Health, Friendship, Peace.
Good people. Very good people. I praise them. Siddhartha was a very spiritual man which we all could be.
Alright now into the touchy subject and I’m not going to get into all of them because there is quite a few, but…. Here it goes.
Whoopity Dooh, our main man the guy who set the timeline and pretty much sculpted the face of our concept of what is what all together. Big impact,
Big impact with this man.
Jesus H. Christ – And I’m not sure if that’s his middle initial or not but it is a term I’ve used before and I think it fits the segment I’m
about to lay down for everyone =)
Christianity…. Hmmmm I don’t know where to begin. Let’s start off with the basic historical of who Christ was and what he did. Supposedly born
from a virgin, Supposedly born into poverty, Supposedly helped many around him, Taught very good principles. Oh schnapps, All the sudden this man is
performing miracles of sorts, preaching against other beliefs, The Romans come and nail him to a cross bam done deal. Except the way the bible depicts
it withstood multiple tortures and survived for 3 days, died, got buried in a cave and came back to life 7 days later pretty sure that’s how the
story goes. Without the big eventful storms and such.
The prophets and witnesses preach of the ten commandments, thou shall not sin by this this that and that, etc etc. They preached those evil doers will
go and burn in a lake of fire and be lavished by Satan / Lucifer whoever. Those who are good will go to heaven and feast eternally no hunger no pain
My whole problem with the Jesus Christ bit – what is to say Jesus didn’t stub someones toe? Or when he flipped the table over what if he had hurt
someone doing so? What is to say while they weren’t looking do to the fact he was human he didn’t go get his sex in?
