I get frustrated when trying to talk reason to the staunchly-unreasonable, especially when the ‘said unreasonable individual insists that you yourself are being unreasonable - moments before they assert their supposed infallibility, thus proving the fact that they are beyond question, inquiry, comparison or reproach and thus beyond reasoning.
Personally I think the idea of a heaven and hell is stupid. They are polar extremes, and polar extremes in humans are practically non-existent. The idea that you have to live a wholly sin-free life or face eternal damnation for the slightest deviation is retarded.
Think of it this way: it would be like if they gave $50000 in cold-hard to people at age 50 if they never committed a single felony in their entire lives up until that point, but if you did any crime whatsoever;no matter how innocuous; you’d have your legs amputated without anaesthetic. So when you think about it, you could get a speeding ticket or you could arse-rape a toddler, and the outcome would be the same anyway. Unless of course you are insane enough to coast through life without making a single mistake or giving in to a single temptation or vice.
If you think this sounds crazy when viewed through the lens of western law, reflect for a moment that most of the world considers the above-logic to be the one-true celestial law that governs all things.
Don’t ever pity me, though my soul be damned.” —Leon (me) - an epithet produced whilst ranting to Eunice about the apparent lunacy of gods and idol worship.
- Kevin: "So err, how gross are we talking?"
- Leon: "Not gross man, downright disgusting".
- Kevin: "OK, so how disgusting?"
- Leon: "I don't think..."
- Kevin: "Try me."
- Leon: "..."
- Kevin: "..."
- Leon: "Daughter-fucks-father disgusting, and that's pretty bad, even by my standards".
- Leon: *Looks at watch*
- Leon: "So c'mon, let's go to Bugis! It'll still be open at this hour".
- Dawn: "I'm sorry; I can't; I have to go home... and partition my Mac".
- Leon: *Furrowed eyebrow*
- Leon: "WHAT!?"
So I’m now on Tumblr. I have an Avian in the grass to thank for this fact.
I think this page will be a fantastic way to cultivate a sense of personal accountability…
WOW MY FIRST POST SUCKS. And here I was, trying to scribe something witty and intellectually stimulating. I disappoint myself.
