Voting is to Government what Praying is to God

The reason that so many people still believe praying makes a difference is that when they were young they were taught, or indoctrinated, that ‘praying’ is a way to get a god to change the world to their preferences.

In reality there is no god, there are just people, like priests, who claim to speak on behalf of a god.

The reason that so many people believe that voting makes a difference is because when they were young they were taught, or indoctrinated,  into believing that ‘voting’ is a way to get a government to change the world to your preferences.

In reality, there is no government. There are just people, politicians, who claim to speak on behalf of a government.

The reality is that there is no god and there is no government. There are just people and their silly ideas.

  1. You”re right about the voting blatantprop, but it takes a bigger faith than I have, to entertain the notion there is not God. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the 9/11 vids. Fascinating stuff. Your site has a lot of great stuff on it!

      I like that argument 🙂

      FWIW (and not that my opinion counts for anything) I find the western scientific godless / materialistic description of the universe far more ridiculous, I just don’t go for the language of gods or the structure of organised religions. *Everything* is a cult when you break it down (science, religion, men, women, mainstream, alternative, intellectual, hedonist etc). It’s how we *behave* in our chosen cults which is what matters 🙂

      But as long as people aren’t using force against other people (which of course many people do) then it’s all cool.

      I like the energy which a lot of people with religious belief have, which (I assume) comes from being humble in the presence of magnificence – I feel that too over here in my cult (whatever it is).

      Anyway, it’s a funny old world!
