Why Is It?
I’ve seen many things in this world. I’ve bathed in a fresh spring (cold) on a nudist beach, looked down on the world from Mount Olympus, dined in Tokyo, frolicked with the locals in Merman City, gambled on the coast of devastation (Haiti-Dominican Republic), watch the apes on 7 coasts, dined on the bestest fruit the planet has to offer.
I’ve seen the world from above the Himalayas and at the bottom of the Mariana’s trench. I’ve seen the world in ways that my great grandfather would never have dreamed. I have heard and spoken language he would not know. I have seen and done so many things… so many things that our education system is incapable of explaining. I am a lucky person. I get to pick and choose what parts of the world I want to interact with… it is not a dream for me. I choose to ignore parts or visit them. I talk with people who are on the other side of the planet as if they were right next to me. I have the powers that only gods had in times past. I am more powerful than many gods of ancient times.
When I saw the creatures living in the vents at the bottom of the oceans and the lighting firing backwards into space, I saw what no god nor religion ever predicted.
Why is that?
Science, it works bitches!
Religion has never given us something new. It only tells us what we can believe about what is discovered by science.
Ask your religious friend why god never mentioned hydrothermal vents, aids, swine flu or anything that science has done for us. Fuck religion. It has no answers.
