Welcome to the world of one man's insanity and his accurate observations, also known as cynicism, of a world full of imbeciles and annoying people.

Re: Previous Blog

As I was saying in my previous blog post; no similar species to humanity shoud have been able to last as long without some form of divine protection. Unsurprisingly, I'm not the only one who's had such thoughts and there's actually a very interesting documentary on BBC Radio 4 iPlayer about the human need for religion. Another thing the documentary's about is whether believing in the supernatural provided an evolutionary edge for humanity. If you live in Britain, and are at least vaguely interested in this particular subject, then I would reccomend listening to "God On My Mind: Evolution".

One theory that cropped up is that it's in the DNA to believe in the supernatural. That's a stupid idea that can be immediately disproved by taking your head out of the fluffy pink clouds and talking to actual people. In the heritage and tradition; perhaps, but definitely not in DNA.
Apparently, superstitions and supernatural explanations only exist in an attempt to work out how the world works and how individuals fit in. That's why children are more inclined to believe in the Tooth Fairy and Father Christmas. It's part of humanity to provide explanations for everything, even if there's no known explanation.
Another point raised is that religions can't die because they'll be reborn the next time a child is born. Obviously, this isn't true practically. It could happen theoretically, but only if the child in question happens to learn about beliefs from the dead religion.

One thing that I liked with this documentary is the brief talk about fake beliefs. Looking back, the main reason I was bullied in school was the fake belief that I had no emotions. Unlike humanity, I wasn't coming up with explanations about everything around me, and I've never been able to truely express or understand my emotions. Even some of the teachers felt uncomfortable about that. Only one of them ever caused me grief over that and their death within a year of the first instance just made the pupils scared of me. I found it quite amusing that they believed I had somehow placed a curse upon the teacher that caused their death. The real explanation was that they had cancer, but the fact that the other children around me came up with the belief that I was able to curse the teacher and cause their death proves that humanity always has to find an explanation for everything that's around them, even if they have to make one up to avoid knowing they haven't got an explanation.

This is getting a bit longer than I intended, so I'm going to cut it off here. I might continue on with this another time, but the chances of that are fairly low so if you are intersted, then don't keep your hopes up.

There are a lot of opinions about "Hell". In Christianity, it's the place where people who have sinned get punished. In Norse Mythology, it's where those who didn't die a warrior's death went and was a lesser heaven. I feel there's an obvious connection between the two that's passed down through the ages and "evolved". Christianity has had a habit of picking things up from other religions during it's time, such as Easter and Christmas which were Pagan holidays. I can't remember where they got Satan from, but that was from another religion that was "assimilated" into Christianity.

Anyway,I think that no religion has got hell correct. If there is a Hell, then it is what humanity has to live through every single day. Life's just a dull, monotonous routine for pretty much everyone. Most choose to delude themselves that it isn't, but every day is pretty much the same no matter what they tell themselves. As I've said before; humanity has reached it's peak. There's nothing left for it now. Sure, they're making technological advancements, but it's just the same stuff with improvements. There's not been anything new for several decades. We're just going round in circles, but making those circles prettier.

I just find humans to be insignificant. They have no real purpose, but they've still managed to survive thus far. It's understandable why they believe there's a God watching over them. No other similar species could have lasted this long without something as powerful as a god preventing them from extinction.

Reading through this post, I realise that I've referred to humanity as part of them and as another being observing them. Both are technically true. I just thought I'd let anyone reading know that I am aware of that fact.

TV Licensing, Part 2

I thought I may as well update those who care about the status between me and TV Licensing. At the moment, I'm waiting to get a response from them. They had better accept the fact that I've contacted them again. If they don't, then I'm going to write a letter to the local MP. It's harrassment, plain and simple. I've got no intention of dealing with TV Licensing anymore. Either they accept I don't watch live TV, or I'm going to complain about them to a higher authority than them.
