Skepsos's skepsis

Shake yer Mohammed

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on May 21, 2010

I don’t like offending, but sometimes you just do things and at the same time cannot help offend someone… it happens every day.
This is my submission for Everybody Draw Mohammed Day http://twitpic.com/1ph8sq

The blog I was hoping to submit this to, seems to have mysteriously disappeared? What happened?

Come on you fuckers, I can take you.
Here is a great archive on all the depictions of Mohammed.

Unbelievable

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on April 30, 2010

The fact that Richard Dawkins gets so much attention in the media is actually worrying: it proves it is apparantly rare and noteworthy that one cannot believe in a god.

The birth of scepticism

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 25, 2010

My skepticism began at the start of the first Gulf War, when CNN continuously displayed the bombing as if it was a videogame. It even had a name: ‘precision bombing’ and it was supposed to be safe and nonharmful to Iraqi civilions.
At that time I would blindly trust the eight ‘o clock news.
The next day when I was attending my physics class and my fellow classmates were discussing the war, my teacher came in. Some pupils asked him ‘what do you think about the war sir?’ He paused for a while and said “you shouldn’t believe what they show you on tv. It is impossible to have civilianfriendly precision bombing if at the same time they tell you a thousand missiles are being fired.”
This shocked me, made me think and forever sparked a search for truth in me.

Tell me: do you remember your first skeptical moment?

I swear

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 24, 2010

It’s time to replace the expressions “bunch of faggots” and “that’s so gay”
into
“bunch of Christians” and “that’s so fucking theist!”

Really. It’s very odd to use the word ‘gay’ as a swearword. Gay is something that just simply exists, there’s nothing anyone could (or should) do about it.
Just replace it with “busstation” (another thing that just simply exists…). Try it.
For example “that movie was sóooo busstation!”

The fluxus of socialising

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 14, 2010

‘You can reach all you want in life’ – is nasty bullshit. I don’t like it for two reasons.
One: it sort of implies that people who haven’t reached all they want, are losers and it’s their own fault. But we very well know there are plenty of boys and girls who were born in really bad neighbourhoods, or in poor countries, or countries that are at war, who won’t have that opportunity and will always stay behind even if they do escape their descent.
So it totally disregards society and circumstance.
Two: the second reason is linguistics related. If you say ‘you can reach all you want’ it also implies you already know what you want, without any outside influence. But that would be horrible and totally unrealistic. Everyone meets others. Other people can inspire you and make you change your mind, if only ever so slightly. Everyone is formed, not static. This means there is no standard recipe for being a ‘selfmade man’ or for ‘having it made.’
People who know what they want and never ever change their mind are less likely to consider other peoples’ views and needs.
When saying ‘You can reach all you want in life’ you’re omitting outside influence, the importance of exchange.
And you know what: a hermit doesn’t get close to himself. I don’t think people can ‘find themselves’ through solistic meditation.
I have learned who I am only by interacting with others.
This fluxus of personality, I’d like to call it, seems to be quite the taboo in modern day capitalist society.

‘Come’ together

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 9, 2010

Huge gatherings of the same species are always because of sex.
Only humans gather in large numbers in order to listen to a sexless sunday sermon…

Genderfear

Posted in gender, Skepsos by skepsos on March 6, 2010

The killing of transgender people shows that a ‘man’ in a dress apparantly is felt to be a bigger threat than war and poverty.

Acquired royalty

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 6, 2010

All royalty should be stripped from their benefits and possessions, except for drag queens and drag kings, they can stay – since they are the only kings and queens who actually attained their royalty themselves, and not by right of birth.

Democrazy

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 5, 2010

Democracy could have been a great substitute for religion, but now populism has taken its place.

Standard sex

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 5, 2010

There is no such thing as an ‘oversexed’ society today, it’s just ‘wrongly sexed’ with a lack of diversity and a dominant standard in beauty that made it quite hard for me to find my own sexual niche.
