SO, lets get to it, where to start, the Bible I suppose, what is it, well I like to think of it as an adult form of Grimm fairy tales, you know, tell a story about morals and warnings, the Bros Grimm used monsters, the Bible uses God and Jesus, and just to put the record straight now, I have read the Bible from front to back when I was really into the UFO thing, lots of stories in there could be linked to UFO's and Aliens, not my idea but I had to find out for myself, anyway, back to the Bible. as I see it the Bible is a collection of stories from different peoples "experiences", and then a group of people decided to start a religion of sorts and made a anthology from them, it's a great read with everything in it, sex, power, murder, scheming, love to name just a few, but as a book of actual happenings I am not so sure.
First off God, this omnipotent being who decides to create a world in 7 days? really? come on, we all now know about the 'Big Bang', we also know now that the earth took a little longer the 7 days to create, so where does this leave God now, I am now hearing that God created the Big Bang, yeah right. The believers have to have something to hang onto, otherwise there is no point in preying, going to church etc, so they will always find something to try and prove the existence of God. My thinking is why create a world that is so cruel and unforgiving? God must have had an evil side to him.
Onto Jesus, where do we start with an ancient Paul Daniels, born to a virgin mother, lets look at this, Ufologists would have you believe that Mary was artificially inseminated by an alien, lets face it waking up one morning to find out your carrying a child, come on, if the aliens didn't do it Mary must have got so drunk one night that Joseph jumped her while she was asleep, I know, your all getting angry, but come on, show me the proof, you can't, neither can I but my version makes more sense.
SO Jesus doe's all these miracles, no he's a very talented magician, doing his one man show around the country getting followers and groupies on the way, remember there was no Twitter or FaceBook to get followers, they had to literally follow you around like a bunch of stalkers, anyway, the Bible goes on and on about what Jesus said and what we should do, if you want to believe in all that then fine, remember one thing, the church is the biggest business in the world with more land/real estate than any other, when you by a bible where does the money go, the authors don't get the royalties, the church does, who pays for the church roof when some little bugger has stripped of the lead, the followers do, so God, big money, someone knew how to exploit a book of bedtime stories and make millions from it. Is religion dangerous, YES is bloody well is, every war is based on a region of some type, and what about the new religions? I quote from the inform.ac website:
- In 1969, a group calling themselves 'The Family' under the leadership of Charles Manson (who referred to himself as Jesus Christ) committed a series of high profile murders in southern California. Upon their conviction for seven brutal murders, Manson and four of his followers received the death penalty, which was later commuted to life imprisonment.
- In 1978 about 914 members of The Peoples Temple, a movement combining elements of Pentecostalism, socialism and communism, died in a mass suicide-murder at Jonestown, Guyana.
- Between 1994 and 1997, seventy-four members of the Order of the Solar Temple, a movement based on a variety of esoteric teachings including Templarism and Rosicrucianism, died in a number of incidents involving suicide and murder in Canada, Switzerland and France.
- In 1995, twelve people died and thousands were injured in a sarin gas attack in Tokyo's underground system by members of Aum Shinrikyo, a Buddhist-based group, founded by Shoko Asahara in 1986.
- In 1997, thirty-nine members of Heaven's Gate, a UFO group, who believed that a spacecraft positioned behind the Comet Hale-Bopp would take them to a higher level of existence, committed suicide in San Diego, California.
- In 2000, around 300 followers of the Ugandan Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God, a movement which broke away from the Roman Catholic Church in the late 1980s, were burned to death. Mass graves were later discovered, raising the death toll to more than 1,000 victims.
Talk to a counsellor or someone, they will be of more help than God.
Ghost & other spooky things.
What are they and why do some people see things that others don't? The answer is Pareidolia.
Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a stimulus (an image or a sound) wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern of something where none actually exists.
Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, the man in the moon, the moon rabbit, and hidden messages within recorded music played in reverse or at higher- or lower-than-normal speeds.
'What has that got to do with ghosts' you ask? Well, I believe that all ghost sightings are normal shadows the we think are shapes of bodies etc, Pareidolia, 'So what about the the whole person I saw with features and form?' same thing Pareidolia, we really want to see certain things, dead relatives and pets etc, so we do when we see shadows or light creating shapes that we then interpret as what ever.
In photography (film) it is normally a double exposure or (digital) a sensor error that is not erasing a previous exposure, 'But that looks like my dead granny in the back ground', probably not, we just see who we want to see, Photo-Pareidolia, yes I have an answer for everything, Photo-Pareidolia is a new thing I just made up to cover the photographic angle.
A good example of where people take this to the next level are Ghost Hunters, these people would have you believe they are nonbelievers, but in reality they do, lets have a quick look at Most Haunted, a UK TV programme where a crew go to famous haunted places and try to capture a ghost on film/digitally or EVP.
Led by Yvette Fielding, the programme investigates purported paranormal activity in many locations in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and other countries. It is produced by Antix Productions airing on Really starting from 21 August 2014, with Yvette Fielding, Karl Beattie and Stuart Torevell. Most Haunted was first aired on Living TV from 2002 until 2010 when the network decided to axe the programme.
They also for a very long time had the so called Psychic Derek Acorah telling the audience that he could feel a presence and would tel stories that had happened in these old buildings, however he was dropped after Antix Productions found out that he would research the buildings they went to and would then lie that he had contact with these entities, WHAT A LOT OF BOLLOCKS. he was also proved later not be a Psychic, there's a surprise, not.
Here a couple of youtube links that just crack me up.
So I think if you see a ghost, just remember they are not real, it's all in your head.
That's enough for today, I want to do some research in the the YouTube phenomena that is 'Drunk girl fails', I am assured that i will piss myself laughing, so wish me luck.
