Why do people still believe unreliable, imaginary bollocks! Not just one load of crap either. All mixed up, all thought up when people hallucinated all the time due to illness, poisoned wounds, adrenalin breakdown and starvation. We've had thousands of years, all that accumulated knowledge, yet we still believe in magic...  
We managed to accept the world was flat, why do we still believe all this mystical shit!!!
Grow up! No gods, no magic, no miracles - or it would still happen.
How can Christians believe in Mayan mythology?
How can Christians enter Law and Politics when Jesus said don't?
How can people living in cities, working in banks be Zen Buddhist?
How can people claim to be Christian when they are so obscenely rich?
Why do religious people kill each other all the time?  Catholics v Protestants, Shia v Sunni, etc.  They don't even fight other religions half the time! 
Why do religious people not obey their Holy Books. They are mostly against violence and for equality. Don't see much of that happening.
"LOVE of money is the route of all evil" says the Bible - yet the US still claim to be a Christian country. What's more, its uninformed, oppressed masses believe they ARE Christians.   Preachers on TV selling 'salvation' to poor, uneducated, lonely, vulnerable people so that they can regain power through the governments, using the billions collected on TV in order to force their own agenda on the country.

It would be good to have a reason
To stay alive from season to season.
Unfortunately, or maybe not,
Its all we have, life's all we've got.

So what do we tell our children?
And what do we tell their kids?
And what do we say to explain away
All the fucking shit that we did?

Oh! Sorry, we fucked the planet,
We were greedy, stupid and thick.
We thought it wouldn't matter,
That we could deal with it.

But it doesn't seem to be working
Everything is going wrong;
Earthquakes and volcanoes
From here to old Hong Kong.

There s every chance we've fucked it.
That there's nothing we can do,
So what do we get from the media?
They keep selling things to you.

We can see where it's going wrong, right?

Everything you're told,
Everything you learn,
All turns out to be lies,
Your ideals have to burn.

You know the things you wanted,
You know the things you need,
But 'form' declares its wishes
And hatred plants the seed.

So denial becomes common,
Until everyone believes,
That it is the way it ought to be
But its not true - is it?
It doesn't even rhyme...

People ask me, "Why don't you go out with men your own age?"
I reply, "They don't ask me..."
Its true. Its like trying to get blood out of a stone talking to men of my age. They live in a world long gone. I've met people I like of my own age, but they can't seem to deal with it.
So, what am I supposed to do? Be celibate? I don't think so.
I like men to be men, is there something wrong with that?
I don't like having all these girly-boy bands pushed on me. I don't like pretty, I like handsome. A man should look like a man not a girl. I'm not a lesbian so I don't find girly-boys attractive.
I like rugged men with eyes that melt my knees. Anything wrong with that? No.
So... Any offers?

One day, when my two sons were little, they decided to play Superman. The following conversation ensued:

Duncan(aged 5)  Richard (aged 3) and myself (age irrelevent)

Duncan: "Right Richard, I am Superman and you can be Superboy, because Superboy couldn't fly."
Me:       "Yes he could fly."
Duncan: "Oh, well then Richard, you can be Superbaby, cos Superbaby couldn't fly."
Me:       "Yes he could."
Duncan: "Ok then Richard, you can be Superseed......."

After Madness pt.?

I suppose the upside of having been pretty much off my rocker is that I learned a hell of a lot about human nature in a short space of time.  I learned that human nature is not very nice. It is still rooted in the herd and is like chickens pecking at the one with the black feather, they don't want you to be different to them.

The next ten years was spent learning to recognise this and, hardest of all, learning to live with it.  It has been an isolating experience, but then I discovered the Internet. Yes, I was a latecomer, I AM poor, you know, but I would not like to live without it now. Through it I have met many like-minded people and this has restored my faith in things.  A few people is all it takes.  As it is I meet more every day.

Of course it spells the end for the gravy-train. The govts fear revolution. Pah! We don't want a revolution, we want things run PROPERLY and with integrity for the good of the electorate.  NOT for the good of a few multi-national companies. They can keep most of it, but why do they have to have it ALL?

I think the search for 'spirituality' is a psychological dysfunction many of us monkeys have. We don't want to be monkeys so we search for the elusive proof of our non-monkeyness. And then everyone apes each other so they won't look like a monkey either.

Once I was a child,
With everything before me;
Then I was an adolescent -
Everything bored me;

Then I was a young woman,
Fertile and ripe;
Then I was a mother
Believing all the hype.

Then I was 'In my prime'
At my physical best,
I deserved much more, but realised
I was settlling for less.
