Every rich Christianist is building

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".
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.

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.

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.

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.

VERY HUMBLE COLONIAL MONARCHISM
"As a sign of humility our mothers would put their most beautiful scars on

BEFORE AND AFTER LOCKE
In the 17th century of the Christianist Era Locke said that 'in the

It seems easier to convert a man into a woman (or to one of the Abrahamic

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.

REMBRANDT'S DAY WATCH
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."

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

"HETERO HETERINI LUPUS"

44.NEY-61st Northern Early Yule
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.

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

First World War it was declared bankrupt all over Europe.)

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.

LABEL AND DOCTRINE
'Humanists' start from the label humanism and then they are allowed

use different labels with it, dependent on practical and verbal-symbolic

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
