It is what you believe in…

beliefsI sit here and sip my cup of coffee. It is hazelnut flavored and just makes a dreary day better. That is what I think! I think a cup of coffee makes the day better, but that may not be what you think. I really do not care if you like coffee or not. I have chosen to make a narrow themed blog based on my thoughts and my sipping coffee as I live in Russia. Today I decided to tell what I think about several major issues that are destroying our world…

1. Abortion: Other than a few individual cases due to external circumstances and those cases should be dealt with in privacy and peace for all involved. Abortion is just plain wrong. I am a biology major in genetics. I have real issues with aborting a child after conception. For I know as well as anyone that that child is who and what he is at the micro second of fertilization. He or she is what she is and you are killing someone who already has hair color chosen, muscle mass chosen and a thousand other things chosen. That person is who he or she is and killing them is the same as pulling the trigger on a full grown adult. I believe that the decision to not have a baby is made before you “romp in the hey,” so to speak. Oh I know! You have rights and can do what you damn well want to and will abort if you want to. You are right! I just wish that you would have thought about the consequences of your actions, before you slept with that hot linebacker from the college team or that cute bartender at the local pub, last night. Oh, but I realize that you had a few too many to drink… (Sad!)

2. Global Warming: Is a joke to me! Global Warming is a political ploy and is what the governments want you to concentrate ion and run scared from. The truth is, if Global Warming is all we had to worry about, then we do not have any issues. The point blank issue is that we have Global Destruction going on and it is caused by the human race. We have very little to worry about from warming and CO2 gases. What we better worry about is the whole picture and the whole picture is really bad. I truly believe that Mother Nature will take us down and out, if we continue to destroy this planet. We have no idea about how alive everything is around us and as we terrorize the planet. The day is coming that we will be Shaken off like a bad case of fleas!

“We’re so self-important. Everybody’s going to save something now. “Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails.” And the greatest arrogance of all: save the planet. Save the planet, we don’t even know how to take care of ourselves yet. I’m tired of this shit. I’m tired of f-ing Earth Day. I’m tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is that there aren’t enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world safe for Volvos. Besides, environmentalists don’t give a shit about the planet. Not in the abstract they don’t. You know what they’re interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. They’re worried that some day in the future they might be personally inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn’t impress me.

The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles … hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages … And we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet isn’t going anywhere. WE are!

We’re going away. Pack your shit, folks. We’re going away. And we won’t leave much of a trace, either. Maybe a little Styrofoam … The planet’ll be here and we’ll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet’ll shake us off like a bad case of fleas.

The planet will be here for a long, long, LONG time after we’re gone, and it will heal itself, it will cleanse itself, ’cause that’s what it does. It’s a self-correcting system. The air and the water will recover, the earth will be renewed. And if it’s true that plastic is not degradable, well, the planet will simply incorporate plastic into a new paradigm: the earth plus plastic. The earth doesn’t share our prejudice toward plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn’t know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, “Why are we here?”

Plastic… asshole.”

― George Carlin

He is right in the above block-quote and enough said about that…

3. War: Now war is something I know about. It is something I have been trained for. It is something I have lived through and it is something that is so terrible, that I am the only one left alive from my company in my times of past. I am it and there is no one that shared my experiences next to me. In fact most of them never came home and the ones that did, killed themselves, either by fast suicide or slow suicide. Take your pick and lets just say war sucks and if you support it, then I say you suck. Most likely if you support war, you are an armchair general and think that nothing will happen to you as you sit behind your video games or you just are a warped sick person and thrive on the death of others. We have most of those already in the army or such and they stay for life. See you do suck…

4. Drones: Drones are war and where ever we use them we are at war. That is a bunch of places. Drones do not stop terrorists, but they do stop weddings and lots of civilians. Drones are an example of a society and America is one sick society. God Bless you America as the drones are going to be used against yourself and one day you will be thinking “Terminator” movies. (Soon you may need to register that wedding in the US – Or get droned!)

5. North Korea: Leave them alone! Everything that we think we know about them is a lie and propaganda. North Korea is okay and we (west) are the ones who are psychotically obsessed with them. Leave them alone…

6. Gun Control: I do not like gun control, but that said, “Americans scare me with their “high and mightier than you” attitude and having guns is even scarier when you think about it!”

7. Church: I believe in God, but I do not believe in what we have for religion in America. A long time ago I questioned the money aspect of religions and I see it all over the world. But I deal with America, as it is my home country and religious falsehood is rampant in America…

8. Israel: This is simple! Israel is most likely the biggest mistake that we allowed the west to perpetrate and that means Israel is a huge mistake, for we have made some whoppers in the last hundred years or so. Israel should never have been, nor allowed to continue. It is one of the biggest propaganda lies in the world and after having been to Israel several times and snooped around in a car and not a tourist bus. I found a whole world of suppressed real Jews and a political Jew that should not be allowed the title of being called a Jew and I have found a huge group of millions that are transplanted paid for Jew Wanna Be’s (Many from Russia!)… The west is strong in Israel and I actually think that Israel leads the west in terror and evil. I just feel sorry for the people who are trying to be what they think is correct, for as in America the government in Israel has sold out the souls of those it should be working for…

9. Gay: Now that is a word that pisses me off and it use to be a word for having a good time or having a good feeling. “I am gay,” was associated with good things in life. Then some people went and used the word for people who like their own sex for sex and dislike sex relations with the opposite sex. Nice ploy, use a good word and twist it around to advance your own moral issues. I will never bother a gay and have had many as friends, but do I think it is correct? No! Do I like it? No! (But whether I like it or not is not the issue and tolerance by me is not based on whether I like it!) Do I think that you deserve to live the way you want? Yes! Do I think Gays have a right to be pedestalized and heard above others? No! Do I agree with the Russia way to look at Gays? Yes!

Now that last question was a million dollar question. In Russia we have gays and they are not bothered. It is just that in Russia as with many sexual issues, do not bring these issues in front of the children. Gay issues get very sexual and they get really messy real fast out in the open. I always tell people who come to Moscow and want to know were the gays will be found. A good place is the Gum shopping mall at the Red Square. Go to the top floor and you will find a gay wonderland that will excite you to no end. Sveta and I went there once (top floor) to look around. The top floor is a treasure trove of gay individuals and shops. I said, “Better top floor than bottom floor!”

I am going to end with that bit about gays. I have no religious belief that drives what I think in all the above and I have no political beliefs that drives what I think. I am driven by my experience and my thoughts. I will get death threats for posting this and other hateful things. I could go on all days about issues, like rape! I think that a man or a woman that rapes someone, anyone from kids to adults should be removed from society. Take that how you want…

So I am not here to make your life better by trying to write something that you agree with. If you do not like what I say, start your own blog and tell the world about your feelings. I promise I will stop by and look it over, but if I disagree, I will not be back, nor will I say anything. That is no different than what I expect out of anyone reading my blog. You do not like it, find someone who talks your language and go there…

It is what I believe…

    I must say, that’s an interesting post. Let me start by saying that beliefs are personal, and unless your beliefs directly impede on another person’s way of life, they should always be respected.

    That being said, several of the points mentioned have potential for negatively affecting others. Those include Abortion, Gays, Gun Control and Church. The way I see it, if you don’t like it then don’t do it. If you are worried about your children liking or disliking it, then teach them. However, forcing society to conform to your way of thinking is wrong on many levels and should be avoided at all costs.

    Personally, I think abortion is a societal necessity, and while I am against its rampant practice (and often abuse), telling women they can’t do it has significantly more consequences than benefits.

    I feel gays are people that are genetically inclined towards one thing or another. Study after study has shown that teaching someone to be gay is virtually impossible unless the genetics are there beforehand.

    I am all for gun control and think that guns are incredibly dangerous. However, telling people what they can or can’t do isn’t my duty, and if someone wants to own guns then that’s their business. It’s when they do stupid things with guns, like shooting up schools, when government should get involved.

    Religion, I feel, is a poison to society. However, many find solace in it so who am I to tell people not to be religious? My only problem with religion is when a particular sect decides that their way of life is the correct way of life and everyone needs to conform.

    War and Drones I will bundle together. War is unavoidable so long as money is society’s goal. Say what you will, wars are fought to control money. Until people control their governments (my guess is we are hundreds of years out for this), and money isn’t valued so highly (also hundreds of years), war is an inevitability. I am greatly against war, but at this point I see no way to stop it. Drones are simply war’s current technological point.

    North Korea, as all nations, should be the problem of North Korea. Humanity is in no position to dictate how other sovereign nations need to behave, regardless of what they are doing. It is for their people to decide. Revolution needs to come from within without the aid of foreigners.

    Israel is an interesting point. Since Israel is America’s greatest ally in the Middle East, I am of the opinion that Israel is simply America’s tough guy in the region. I feel that there is much more to Israel than the public is led to believe. There is method to the madness, and while I have various ideas as to what they may be trying to accomplish, they are merely ideas. But, as in my war comment, we are powerless here so I try avoiding giving it too much concern.

    Now that I have touched on your points individually, I will close by reiterating my initial premise, things that don’t affect you physically shouldn’t bother you. Sure, seeing something disgusting is still disgusting and I particularly don’t like it. For example, while I have nothing against gays, some of their actions I find to be gross. However, I find a lot of things frequently seen in public to be gross. I find religion gross, I find public displays of affection gross, I find some clothing people wear gross, I find many obese people gross, I find countless bizarre smells gross, I find swearing gross … and the list goes on. Who am I to tell all those that I find gross to change?

    People need to live their lives in a way they find acceptable and stop trying to tell other people that “I am right and you are wrong”. When people stop looking at others and start spending more time looking at themselves, the world will get better much more quickly.

    Dan: Now that is the Dan I remember! Welcome back and you made my point. I am not telling you to change, I am telling you that what I think is what I think and if someone does not like it they need to go somewhere else. It all centers around the fact that I tell what I think and like this post itself. It was attacked big time by several groups. The hate flew and flowed. It was seen on a forum and these people no better than to cuss me out so they stay away and just read the article from their forum and attack me relentlessly. I find it interesting and I find it childish. My opinion is mine, I just happen to voice my opinion out loud so to say. If more people did that we would have a better understanding about what the world is thinking, but as it is only a small percentage talks out loud and the rest use fake names and hide behind closed doors and call other names. I do not judge, but I will disagree with the world and the people that are trying to sell us the crap. I have said many times, “I want peace and quiet!” But something I feel is that everyone deserves peace and quiet. As always you are very correct and have a better knack at looking at the world than I do. I try and will keep trying to study the world and learn. For learning is growth, but I am warning the world, after many years right here on Windows to Russia. I am not going to shut up or at least until I die…

    Thank you very much for a great comment. I have seen you around again and am glad! I hope all is good on your side of the world. Unless you came back to this side… 🙂

    Hi Kyle,

    War is a reality that needs to be acknowledged and handled just as peace is an ideal that is to be aimed for. While I have never experienced a war, I have some understanding of it from the Bhagavad Gita.

    Some people aren’t guided by morality and no amount of peaceful initiatives can make them change. With these people, the only option is war; even if you don’t want to fight, they will pull you into it. When they lose, they evolve.

    Others who are fighting, have at least a trace of morality in them and hence will listen. With these one can get into peace after both sides have opened up fully. There is no option here either: either one makes peace with them or be burnt like a meteor that comes too close to the sun; why? because the natural state of the universe is peace.

    Have a nice day.
