NOTES OF THE METRIC MONTHS FROM 60 TO 63 ASWW 




THRU THE EYE OF THE RICH CHRISTIANIST

Every rich Christianist is building a needle with a gigantic eye. (Or is it a camel of miniscule proportions?)

61.MNE-63rd Late Southwest



I CAN THINK, WAIT AND FAST

The following words which Hermann Hesse makes Siddharta say consider also applicable to myself: "I can think. I can wait. I can fast".

56.LSW-63rd Mid-Southwest



CANADA'S 1981 THEOCENTRIST CHARTER

Whereas such a country 'is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law' it flagrantly violates the right to equal consideration of non-monotheists and illegitimately founds its own justification upon circular reasoning.

39.MNE-63rd Early Southwest



ONE IN THE RELEVANT NORM

There is neither Arab nor Jew, neither Dutch nor German, neither Chinese nor Japanese, neither Asian Indian nor 'American Indian', neither white nor black, neither woman nor man, neither we nor they, for all are one in the Relevant Norm.

62.MNW-63rd Late Southeast



MIDDLE PATH

There is a middle path between loony left and rotten right.

42.LNE-63rd Mid-Southeast



THREE KINDS OF LIES

There are three kinds of lies: natural lies, damn lies and supernaturalism.

63.MNE-63rd Early Southeast



THOSE WHO PLAY . . .

Those who play with their balls must look out for rubbers.

43.ENE-63rd Equatorial Month



IN- AND EXTELLIGENCE

The good news is that there is a great number of intelligences (verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial, body-kinesthetic, musical-rhythmical, naturalistic, interpersonal, intrapersonal and, perhaps, a few more), and that you will always be intelligent in some sense. The bad news is that there is an equal number of extelligences, and that if you are intelligent in one way, you will be extelligent in numerous other ways.

62.LSE-63rd Late Northwest Month



NOT TWO COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

There is not one country in the world where everyone has the same denominational worldview or is of the same persuasion, with the possible exception of the Vatican, but that 'country' is as religionistic as a country could ever be and should never be.

39.LNE-63rd Mid-Northwest Month



WHAT TAKES THE CAKE

All kinds of confusion between public property and private expenses and private use which are called "corruption" and "nepotism" in Remoteistan, are called "agreements between the Government and the Royal Household" in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. And what takes the cake is that the head of Government and the head of the Royal Household are one and the same person.

62.ESW-63rd Early Northwest Month



TRADITIONAL COSTUME

The men appeared at the meeting in traditional androcentric costume.

40.ESE-63rd Late Northeast Month



BELIEF OR SUPERSTITION?

A footballer who thanks (his) God for scoring a goal: is it belief or is it superstition? Never mind, it is equally blockheaded.

62.ESW-63rd Mid-Northeast Month



NAME-AND-FAME DROPPINGS

The bulk of philosophical conversation consists of name-and-fame droppings (and i use the plural on purpose).

41.LSW-63rd Early Northeast Month
(Note that from now on the universal names of months will be used here.)



D, G, J, W

How many letters in the English alphabet start with D as in dear? Four!

60.NML-62nd Southern Late Lent
(Note that the neutralistic names of months will no longer be used here.)



F, L, M, N, S, X

How many letters in the English alphabet start with E as in ebb? Six!

60.NML-62nd Southern Mid-Lent



PASTORS, SHEEP AND WOOL

I do not like those pastors who pull the wool over the eyes of their sheep.

42.NML-62nd Southern Early Lent



WELL ...

People who say that they speak English 'good' do not speak it well.

60.SLL-62nd Southern Equinoctial



不怕, 就怕 [Bú Pà, Jiù Pà]

天不怕, 地不怕, 就怕文森特说中国话.

DO NOT FEAR, FEAR
Do not fear a heaven from the mind torn,
Do not fear your own earth,
Fear Vincent, foreign-born,
Writing Chinese for all 'e is worth.

62.NLL-62nd Southern Mid-Yule



RELIGIOUS PREFERENCES IN AFRICA

Religious politicians and clergy in Africa declare a war on South Africa's same-sex marriage and long for eternal peace with the pedosexual criminals of the Lord's Resistance Army.

61.SML-62nd Southern Early Yule



'DRAG QUEENS' OR MALE TRANSVESTITES

It is everybody's right to wear whatever clothes they want, but personally i prefer even (good-looking) women without women's clothes, let alone (good-looking) men.

56.NLY-62nd Equatorial Month



GRATING BRITAIN

Traditional, monarchist Britain is a chunk of Christian Middle Ages adrift on the open sea.

41.SEM-62nd Northern Late Lent



A GHOST DROVER

What do you call someone who drives cattle or sheep on the wrong side of the road?

61.NML-62nd Northern Mid-Lent



PRAYING MANTISES

When determining the gigantic numbers of 'Christians', 'Muslims' and other real or alleged supernaturalists in the world one should certainly not miss out the praying mantises.

45.EQU-62nd Northern Equinoctial



VERY HUMBLE COLONIAL MONARCHISM

"As a sign of humility our mothers would put their most beautiful scars on the ground where the Queen was walking." Such were the words spoken by a person from Surinam, a former Dutch colony, at least on paper.

61.SEY-62nd Northern Late Yule



BEFORE AND AFTER LOCKE

In the 17th century of the Christianist Era Locke said that 'in the beginning all the world was America'. In this century it might be more appropriate to say that 'in the beginning America was all the world'.

44.SLL-62nd Northern Mid-Yule



I LOVE THE PAST

I love the past, the past of the future, that is.

61.EQU-62nd Northern Early Yule



CONVERSIONS

It seems easier to convert a man into a woman (or to one of the Abrahamic creeds, for that matter) than to convert a smoker into a nonsmoker.

56.SLL-61st Southern Late Lent



WHEN HER OR HIS OWNER ...

I myself am little impressed by a supernaturalist who claims to know when her or his owner is coming home.

55.SEM-61st Southern Mid-Lent



LOOKING FORWARD TO WHAT?

"We are looking forward to help you!" And your guest is looking forward to improving your English.

61.NLL-61st Southern Early Lent



DUTIFUL MIXTURES

New deontological theories are often very much like 'the mixture as before'.

42.NML-61st Southern Equinoctial



HONG XIUQUAN'S POSTHUMOUS MESSAGE

The relatively recent story of the Christian theomaniac Hong Xiuquan, 'Heavenly King of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom', teaches China and the rest of the world what will happen if or when it does not guard itself against Christian, Islamic and other brands of theocratic ideology. Then it may soon succumb to their despotic, egoistic and maniacal rule. And then it may take many millions of human lives of both the innocent and the guilty, to defeat the army of God-worshipers and to get rid of the monsters again.

61.NLY-61st Southern Mid-Yule



A RACE OF MOTHERFUCKERS

Creating one man and one woman, out of that man's rib, and making that couple have but two sons creates but one thing: a race of motherfuckers.

56.NLY-61st Southern Early Yule



REMBRANDT'S DAY WATCH

Monk in a Cornfield, etching by Rembrandt

Rembrandt came across human beings having sex in the bushes and in cornfields by day. He was not shocked and did not fall off his pedestal. Inspired he turned the love makers (among whom at least one monk or missionary) into etchings. He is supposed to have said: "When i want to relax, i don't have a need for decency but for freedom."

61.NLL-61st Equatorial Month



'INFERENTIAL CONFUSION'

Those with an obsessive-compulsive disorder may be said to suffer from 'inferential confusion': they are in search of an observation to go with a conclusion. Oddly enough, this is exactly the kind of phenomenon which i find so typical of supernaturalism. Or am i not supposed to say this?

60.NLL-61st Northern Late Lent



THE HUSBAND OF A EUROPEAN QUEEN

What's a King?

39.NMY-61st Northern Mid-Lent



THE HUSBAND OF AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT

What's a First Lord?

39.NMY-61st Northern Equinoctial



ABRAHAMITE GRATITUDE

Some people insist that one should call the Abraham religions "Abrahamite religions", but Abrahamite combines better with gratitude to refer to the kind of gratitude of a man and a woman who drive you away into the desert after they can now get what you gave them without your help.

60.NML-61st Northern Late Yule



A WAXEN SHAKESPEARE

When William Shakespeare wrote that men have marble, women waxen minds, it was Shakespeare who, so susceptible to sexist scribbling, had a waxen mind.

45.NML-61st Northern Mid-Yule



"HETERO HETERINI LUPUS"

Plautus said "Homo homini lupus est", but insofar as it concerns a male society in which each man is a wolf to every other man, Plautus should, perhaps, rather have said: "Hetero heterini lupus est".

44.NEY-61st Northern Early Yule



CHRISTMAS MIGHT

Christianists who, when asked to sacrifice one of their Christian holidays for a Muslim holiday in a country with a large number of Muslims, trivialize such a question have the sense of justice of armored concrete. We must keep on hoping that one day their sense of justice will come to life and extend to all, non-Christianists and nontheocentrists included.

60.NEY-60th Southern Late Lent



FILOSOPHICAL FASHIONS

When it is fashionable among philosophers to claim that 'the great stories' are bankrupt --as in Lyotard--, it is only likely that the next philosophical fashion will be a great story. ('Complete culture' never went or remained bankrupt either, when at the end of the First World War it was declared bankrupt all over Europe.)

44.SML-60th Southern Mid-Lent



ABRAHAM'S BLOW JOB

Naughty behavior, misdemeanors, offenses and crimes often receive an attention (and punishment) which is out of proportion when sex is involved, and which is not seldom blown out of all proportion when looked upon with the eyes of the Abrahamic creeds.

60.NLY-60th Southern Early Lent



LABEL AND DOCTRINE

'Humanists' start from the label humanism and then they are allowed to use different doctrines with it, dependent on personal belief, preference, background and intellectual courage; 'neutral-inclusivists' start from the doctrine of neutral-inclusivity and then they are allowed to use different labels with it, dependent on practical and verbal-symbolic considerations.

47.SEY-60th Southern Equinoctial



OPIUM FOR THE PEOPLE

Marxism, with its lack of denominational content, has never been a threat to religion. It claimed that religion was opium for the people, and the same people just continued to live on that opium.

55.SEL-60th Southern Mid-Yule



THE R AS IN OBET, THE P AS IN PETE

Should someone claim that RP is the best English there is, or even the only correct English, ask 'him' whether 'he' means the R as in Obet and the P as in Pete.

60.NEY-60th Southern Early Yule



EXCEPT, PERHAPS, IN A DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC

Except, perhaps, in a democratic republic, smarmy people usually come in swarms.

43.NLY-60th Equatorial Month



UEFA'S SHOW MUST GO ON

UEFA, which orders soccer matches to go on even when 39 spectators have died violent deaths and hundreds of others are wounded, now shows whose side it is on with a minute of silence for the chief of the Vatican Catholics, who died a natural death.

60.NEM-60th Northern Late Lent



PARASITIC RELIGIONISM

The Islamic rule that a Muslim man can marry a non-Muslim but that a Muslim woman cannot is not only sexist, it also parasitizes on other worldviews not having the same sort of rule. Otherwise Muslim men, too, could only marry Muslim women in practice.

60.NMY-60th Northern Mid-Lent



A PETER ON CATHOLIC ROCKS

A plainspoken Anglo-Saxon man has a cock and balls; an affected Anglo-Latin male has a penis and one or two, or perhaps no, testicles; but a Catholic boy who prefers nature to supernature has a peter on his rocks.

47.SEL-60th Northern Equinoctial



ONE WOMAN NO VOTE

Androcentrist cultures or subcultures often work with the one-woman-no-vote system.

43.NEY-60th Northern Late Yule



85 MILLION EUROS PER YEAR

The Dutch royal family costs 85 million euros annually, about the same as in the UK, a country with almost 4 times as many taxpayers. In order to celebrate this the Dutch government will add another 10 million in the year 2005 of the Christian Era.

59.SML-60th Northern Mid-Yule



PATERNITY FROM THE TEMPLETOPS

The harder they shout from the templetops that Jesus of Nazareth did not have a biological father the more probable it is --if 'e lived at all-- that Jesus' biological father was a Roman soldier.
