LET SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT CONTEND
In 1957 of the Christianist Era, Mao Zedong, the Chinese communist leader,
made a speech encouraging criticism of the communist system saying "Let a
hundred flowers bloom; let a hundred schools of thought contend".
(And if you made your view known, you might end up in prison for twenty
It is better to start with two schools of thought that differ
substantially and are really free to contend.

IF I WERE A CHRISTIAN . . .
If i were a Christian i would not only notice that God moves in a
mysterious way, but that He, in an even more mysterious way, usually
does not move at all.

they thought it was a pawnshop.

WHY I AM NOT A WHY I AM NOT-TER
Secular humanists, atheists and others of suchlike nonreligious persuasions
may write articles, even books, about why they are not Christians,
observant Jews, Muslims, and so forth, because in their childhood they were
raised with a specific religious ideology.
They have to justify for themselves and/or the ones who raised them why
they abandoned their former faith (or why they actually never believed
what they were supposed to believe).
I have been so fortunate as not to have had to travel from a religious
creed which was foisted on me to a nonreligious one later in life.

19 TIMES RESPONSIBLE
Someone like Solomon Burke, the soul singer and 'soul legend', who put 21
assume biological) children and 90 grandchildren (and at his death 19
greatgrandchildren) on this earth, is 21-2=19 times responsible and
90-4=86 times co-responsible for the ever-increasing congestion and, if
human overpopulation and overconsumption are not brought to a halt,
eventual destruction of this planet or at least its natural environment.
(Unless, of course, Solomon's greatgreatgrandparents have only 32-21=11
other greatgreatgreatgrandchildren; and unless, of course, Solomon has no
sibs with grandchildren, in which case he will not be 86 but 90-8=82 times

i the standard way, that is, only capitalizing it at the beginning

People suffering from iphobia may even spell it "Iphobia" in the middle of
Some wrongly claim that iphobia is the fear of short words, the opposite
of hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, the fear of long words (which
people having that fear abbreviate to just sesquipedaliophobia).
But the fear of short words is called "phobia".

Russia moved from the orthodox-communist dictatorship of the proletariat
to the orthodox-Christianist dictatorship of the reactionaries.

THE END OF A CALENDAR THAT OF THE WORLD?
Some people claimed that the end of the Maya calendar on the last day of
the 67th year after the Second World War would mean the end of the world.
(You never can tell whether the folks caliming such a thing really
believe in such nonsense themselves.)
Of course, it was not.
fear that by the time that the Gregorian-Christianist calendar will
be dethroned as a so-called 'Common Era' calendar, we will see the same
kind of claim reemerging among an even larger number of people: 'the end
of the Christian calendar will mean the end of the world'.
The big difference is, however, that the Mayas who designed their
calendar believed in cycles and that, as far as i know, they would not
want the world to end in order to make a myth come true.
Nor did they have the power to do so.

FAIR WORDS MAKE LANGUAGE ALLITERATE
Fair words make fools fain is not really a pretty proverb.
Better examples are: Fair words make fools willing (which is also
the meaning of the archaic adjective fain here),
Fair words make flocks worship,
Fewer words make falsehoods wither and
Free sex makes fools suffer.

VEILS FOR WOMEN, DIAPERS FOR GOATS
The idea that women must wear veils is the product of a culture with a
pathological view of erotic feelings and expressions, a culture which can
make sexual tensions run so high that cock-eyed legalists of religious law
not only force female humans to be veiled but also female goats to be
(And in addition a culture in which the same zealots cannot cope with any
arrangement of vegetables which might be 'suggestive', leading from the
murder of shepherds who do not diaper their goats to the murder of grocers
who 'misarrange' their vegetables.)
