There is no Hell, well besides life.
A very famous preacher who's worked' for the president and other high place church stuff lost his congregation because he said he didn't believe in hell anymore... Uh isn't that a good thing? The thing about religion that most people dont consider cause they are idiots is that there is a LOT to it. There are thousands of religions, millions of different takes on it, and hundreds of different gods. The bible doesn't even talk about hell that much, most of what you consider hell to be is propaganda from people in the medieval ages and crazy poets. This preacher guy actually started to research religion and it's history and started to understand that Hell is a very different concept than he once understood it to be. The Devil is not some ugly pitch forked goat monster but a "Fallen angel" who god has yet to eliminate from existence - which is pretty stupid in itself. The point being that everyone was all mad at this preacher for actually thinking for himself and looking at things from a new point of view. These people who dont know anything but the limited things they have been told just totally dismiss anything they dont want to hear. Most people have a problem thinking that everyone goes to the same place. It would mean that a child molester/ murderer/ Iranian goes to heaven just as much as the pope. So? Why would anyone want anyone to go to hell? I think the people who wish punishment on anyone, even those who it seems deserve it, is no better than someone who does some crime on earth.
I just walked out to check on the dogs where i'm staying and one of them had my bird Skyler in it's mouth - dead. I've had her for over a year and treated her like a child. I genuinely loved that little bird and now she just had what had to be a horrible death being ripped out of her cage by her tail and chewed to death by a fucking little chiuauaua. You know i'll never be able to look at that dog the same way again but I can't really blame it at the same time. I mean yeah I can "blame" it, but it's not evil or a criminal - but yes a murderer. But no worse than anyone who's ever eaten chicken or any kind of meat. So this little bird that I've spent more time with than almost any human in the world, who I tried to teach the ABC's to, who had the potential to talk as a human would - is dead. Just like that.
It makes you wonder. Is there really any justice or wrong or right in the world? Is that dog wrong for killing a bird? Would it be wrong for a bird to kill another bird? A dog to kill a dog? does anyone care? Is there a dog god or only for humans? Are humans really special or just evolved monkeys? If we really are just animals then the same non-rules apply - everything goes. You live, you die, nothing else matters. No matter what you do in between affects where you go when you die - cause you dont "go" anywhere. YOu just die. Blank darkness forever more. Or maybe there is this "heaven" or "hell" neither of which probably exist. Just cause you want someone to be - doesn't mean it does. Just because you dont want something to be - doesn't mean it doesn't. So this preacher who had the audacity to say there is no hell - good for him. I believe the same damn thing. I dont know if there is a heaven, that would be great, but even if there isn't - whatever. I hope every single horrible person goes there. Why? Cause i'm not one of them. I wouldn't want anyone or anything to go to hell for any reason. And I dont think Jesus or "god" would either. I think it's the idiots who created it that deserve it most - but even then I don't really care where they go.
Another misconception about the world that most people dont yet realize is the idea of Americans. Christopher Columbus wasn't the first. The "native americans' were not the first. There had to have been a "first" to set foot in North American but it's almost impossible to know who. Even so, they were quickly followed by other people soon after and more and more until it didn't really matter who was first but who could survive the longest. Skeletons found in American now allude to pacific islanders on boats being the first to come here, even before the Native American Ancestors who came across from Russia to Alaska along that bridge. Even before that much of the upper oceans would have been frozen over and cross able even without boats. So just because the Indians were the ones alive when people who could write came here - doesn't mean they were the first - just the last. "American" as we think of it now, is very similar to how it has always been. A Hodge podge of races from around the entire world combined into one area. I consider myself very similar to those first few generations in the ancient american world. People from different ancestries combining into one, then combining even more, until they arent really anything anymore.
I made the "graph" or whatever you want to call it a while ago to show how we're all related in some way. Whether "adam and eve" or some genius monkeys - we all came from a single source. Or multiple single sources that combined, then separated, then combined again. "What a small world" - duh. We're all related to someone else - some how.
In Switzerland they just approved a brain cancer vaccine. Cool! Now that's good news. I think Brain cancer would definitely be the worst kind to get! Cancer is pretty weird in itself. What is cancer? Cells that don't do what they are told and start do to bad things. Could it be from the mind? From some preservative? Genetic? A little of all of those? If people would stop being so closed minded and idiotic when it comes to stem cells we could not only cure any cancer, but re-grow limbs, eyes, and pretty much any problem medically there is. Stem cells are pretty much the opposite of cancer - they can turn into any kind of cell and replace the bad ones or missing ones. Cancer does the opposite and turns cells into something that doesn't work. hmmm, lets ban something that could cure cancer and all disease as we know it! Great idea.
Or even more intriguing stems cells could potentially extend human life indefinitely. No more ageing or dying from old age - definitely ban that!
