Skepsos's skepsis

The importance of being effective

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on August 18, 2010

Who could ever believe in a deity who created all the huge things in the entire universe AND is also watching all the little things you’re doing in your bedroom?
Seems the deity doesn’t quite know how to set priorities here.

Such a waste

I’m sure the number of trees that were cut down to make those silly crucifixes, is enough to generate oxygen for our entire planet for at least a hundred years.

The atheist evolution

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on April 23, 2010

Atheism should be the next step in human evolution.
We can’t judge cave men (and women) for having invented religion. Consider these poor big brained creatures: they were naturally inclined to have investigative minds. They couldn’t help but wonder about the cause of everything surrounding them. I think it’s a type of questioning that is inevitable once a living organism becomes superconscious.
When you become aware of yourself and your surroundings you cannot help to ask where sunshine, rain and death comes from. The explanation will at first be: someone did this, a god.
Only if you investigate further, one can find: sunshine comes from a star, rain comes from the clowds and death is corrosion.
Now, since we are not cave men (or cave women or cave transgenders) anymore: isn’t it time we set aside our first hypotheses completely?

‘Come’ together

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…

The unbearable ant theory

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 8, 2010

If all things are made from atoms, i.e. the same particles, would we be able to construct a living ant out of correctly placed marbles?

Since atoms mostly contain empty space, it would quite possibly require a marble construction the size of our galaxy.
Hm… Perhaps we are already living in a giant ant model?

God is just plagiarizing

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 6, 2010

The earth is fantastic, let’s acknowledge that and give some credit to the universe. It’s all selfmade. God is just plagiarizing.

Worms

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 6, 2010

The life of an earthworm is just as valuable as the life of a human. They are both the result of millions of years of evolution and they come from a very long line of chance survivors.
In fact you could say a rock is equally important as a human. Because we both came from the big bang. However: I tend to be nicer to living creatures than I am to most rocks.

Animaltruistic

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 6, 2010

Altruism can be explained through science and evolution, but why do humans like other species so much?
I really love animals, they endear me more than humans, why is that?

Shaved monkeys

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 6, 2010

We think monkeys look cute but I wonder how they perceive us? Aren’t we ugly to them?
And don’t we look rediculously naked with gigantic hairless faces and silly little babyteeth?

As is

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 5, 2010

Every day I find it unbelievable and miraculous I came into existance. Everything on this planet is quite the ‘miracle’ just as is.
I don’t need a god to see that. A god would actually degrade the value of this planet, because what’s so good about this earth if it’s just some devine creation and hasn’t done anything by itself?
