  6. Donotknowshitfromshite, let me explain science to you. Science describes the universe and all its forces we live in. Clever men and women understanding how these forces work, have harnessed them and today we have electricity, TV, motorcars, modern medicine (although some of you fundies pray to your god to heal your children with devastating effects – your children die) and many more inventions you use on a daily basis. Science is not a religion. You and your cronies are so thick that you do not understand the basics of science – it even scares you. And when evolution show you that we all come from a common ancestor and we don’t need the god-explanation, you go ballistic and condemn science, the messenger, and reject the findings of science. Then why are you still use the produce of science – why don’t you go and live is a cave?

  9. I must say this, interesting conversation. Any I have to ask, do you have a brain? Why i ask this is have you actually seen it? Do your parents or your grandparents or your best mates have brains? I am not trying to be derogitary here, or do you have a heart? have you seen them with your own eyes? Unless you seen all these people brains and hearts with your own eyes you have to believe that they do, right or wrong? well thats what faith is, believing in something in the case God without actually seeing Him. In the same sense if you say you have a brain and a heart I will have to beleive that you are telling me the truth and have faith that you have not lied about it, or are just totally ignorant on the matter. Heck an amoeba doesnt have a brain and still functions. All I can say is enjoy your journey and remember a lot of science is based on theories that have not yet been proven, including evolution. Even Darwin admitted that his theory was totally wrong before he died, so do not believe everything science has to say. Also science has never been able to prove the bible wrong in any way.

    • McBrollocks, you are a funny man. Funny, but wrong. Darwin did have major issues with his own theory. Until they find the missing link (of which they have had many, and all have been disproven, ala lucy), evolution IS still just a theory. I highly doubt they will ever find the missing link (without inventing one – like much of evolutionary theory), because evolution is a CROCK of shite. I’ve included some select quotes that will hopefully cause you to rethink your default indoctrinated (yes, you’ve been indoctrinated worse than the religious), and bigotted view (yes, you’re a bigot). Many of these are scientists and experts in their fields. So here we go:

      “In 1770, it was estimated the world was 70,000 years old. In 1905 the age of the earth was officially 2 billion years old (newsweek, jul 20, 1998,p.50). In 1969 the official age of the earth and moon was 3.5 billion years old – dated with potassium argon dating. today, students are taught it is 4.6 billion years old. That means the earth has been getting older at the rate of 21 million years per year for the last 220 years. That’s 40 years per minute.” Go science!

      “I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it has been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has.” – Malcolm Muggeridge, journalist and philosopher, Pascal Lectures, University of Waterloo

      “Scientists who go about teaching that evolution is a face of life are great con-men, and the story they are telling maybe the greatest hoax ever. In explaining evolution we do not have one iota of fact.” – Dr. T.N. Tahmisian, Atomic Energy Commision

      “Evolution is a fairy tale for grownups. The theory has helped nothing in the progress of science. It is useless.” – Professor Louis Bounoure, Director of the Strasbourg Zoological Museum

      I especially like this one:
      “Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable.” – Sir Arthur Keith (wrote the forward to the 100th anniversary edition of Origin of Species, 1959)

      “all my life I had been duped into taking evolution as revealed truth.”
      *Colin Patterson, senior paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History

      “An increasing number of scientists, most particularly a growing number of evolutionists . . argue that Darwinian evolutionary theory is no genuine scientific theory at all . . Many of the critics have the highest intellectual credentials.”—*Michael Ruse, “Darwin’s Theory: An Exercise in Science,” in New Scientist, June 25, 1981, p. 828

      So arguing that anyone with a proper understanding of science would embrace evolution is patently false. I’m a researcher myself, and you a$$holes need to stop throwing around the stupid idea that whoever contests evolution doesn’t understand science. Clearly you people have the most difficult time understanding it, else otherwise you’d know the simple difference between theory and fact; and don’t say evolution isn’t a religion. It is, and dawkins is your God. Good luck with that.

        En dan raak hulle kwaad vir die wetenskap. Hulle ken nie eens die defenisie van die term teorie soos dit gebruik word om natuurlike waarnemings mee te beskryf nie.

        Hierdie poepol hierbo het dan die vermetelheid om die teorie van evolusie met ‘n geloof te vergelyk. Dis darem maar fokken snaaks hoe hulle iets wat hulle haat vergelyk met iets wat hulle op hulle kniee laat lewe.

        Julle spoke, die kind verkragter got, sy seun wat uit daardie verkragting uit gebore is (kamstig, as jy dom genoeg is om in sulke kak te kan glo), wat dan vir julle gerondnaaiery gemartel en fekruisig is, en dan die oupa spook wat wie weet wat de fok hy is of hoe hy in die prentjie in pas nie.

        Hulle spoke het elkeen ‘n tril. Julle spoke en julle wil nie vir enige iemand met ‘n vagina enige mag of se gee nie. Dus volg julle blindelings enige poepol met ‘n bybel onder sy arm, soos oom Angus die koolkop boer, in julle honderde duisende.

        Dit wys maar net vir my hoe jammer ek vir al daardie honderde duisende vrouens van julle voel. Die van julle wie se vrouens nog nie hulle tasse gepak het en ver weg gefokkof het nie.

        Ek voel ook vreeslik jammer vir julle dogters, wat van kleins af gebreinspeol is dat hulle agter in die bus moet sit, want hulle is nie so goed in julle gotte se oe as die mans nie.

        Fok maar lekker voort in jou donker grot van onkunde en self haat. Daar is darem ander poepolle soos jy om jou geselskap te hou. Onthou net om vir oom Angus genoeg geld te gee, anders gaan boer hy maar weer met aartapels en nie met koolkoppe soos julle nie.

        Lekker lieg vir jesus en vir julle self elke dag. Is dit nie ‘n sonde in julle geloof nie? Seker, maar julle gee mos nie om nie, julle hele dogma is op oneerlike leuns gebaseer, onder ander dinge.

        Manifestation for Basic Human Rights opposed by Organized Religion

        Where ever in the world you find the following human rights opposed, you will find organized religious organizations are in the forefront opposing these human rights as well as justice for the victims. They also try to take away some of these basic human rights in the name of their dogma, even if you do not believe in their religion. Here is a list, in no particular order. There is a lot more to add to this list, so please leave me your suggestions in the comments. This is a work in progress.

        1.) The empowerment of women (long friggin list for that)

        2.) A women’s right to a safe abortion

        3.) Freedom from religious prosecutions

        4.) The right for every child to have a proper scientific education

        5.) The prosecution of child rapists who work for religious organizations

        6.) Gay Rights (long friggin list for that)

        7.) Every human’s right to euthanasia

        8.) Every human’s right to criticize religion

        9.) Every person’s right to get a divorce

        10.) Every women and man’s right to safe birth control and safe sex

        11.) Every child’s right to a religious-free education

        12.) Censorship in media because of religious intolerance

        13.) Religiously motivated wars and violence

        14.) Bodily mutilation to children because of religious dogma

        15.) Any law based of any religious dogma that carries any penalty of any kind to anybody

        16.) Tax advantages given to any religious organizations

        17.) Religious organizations giving medical advice based on their dogma, that hurts and kills people eg. the official stance on condoms and birth control by the RCC, policies on birth control, faith healing and any other snake poison that they claim will cure or prevent you from getting hurt

        18.) Violence sponsored by any religion because they believe they were offended

        19.) Religious organizations who serve in any form as an authority of justice under any circumstances, as well as the carrying out and or endorsements of any punishments

        20.) An adult’s right to charge money for sex, always opposed by most religious organizations

        21.) Religious organizations having anything to do with sex education for children, teenagers, men, women, or really, to anyone at all, makes no sense and should not be allowed in the public domain. But the religious insist on having a finger in the pie everywhere

        22.) Every women’s right to refuse to marry into pre-arranged marriages, whether child, teen or adult

  11. Baffled by Science, if you want to argue a point, try at least to be original. Your argument (if one can call it that) has been used many-a-time by godiots like yourself. Good grief, do you really expect us to go down to your level and point to the obviously erroneous statement you dish up as argument? I think not. But I’ll give you a hint: If I take an axe and chop Ghaddafi’s head open, what will I find? How many brain surgeries have been conducted on ,,,,eh, yes, you guessed it….brains? How many autopsy’s? Ever thought why Da Vinci opened up corpes? Do you think it a fair assumption that if ALL the craniums ever opened contained a brain, the rest of humanity will possess one? Do you think at all Mr “Baffled”?

    However, what is true and has in fact been proven on this blog many times over, is the fact that religious dogma eats away at the brain, until after a while there is nothing left. You my friend, serves as sufficient proof of this statement. Aaaaaargh, there, I’ve done it again – gone down to the level of a dogmatic. Wasted time in an attempt to explain something simple to a brainless godiot.

          • Can someone please tell me what is Christian about subjugating women? Jesus Christ never treated women as inferiors. The tradition of subjugation of women was raised by Paul 300 years after Christ died and had everything to do with the prevention of women achieving any kind of status within the church. Paul’s writings were used as a pretext for many centuries to rob women of their earthly possessions – one of the ways this was achieved was to burn them at the stake as witches and confiscate their land. These Mighty Men are 90% Afrikaners so it follows entirely that they would want to put themselves on a false pedestal vis a vis women now that they no longer run the country. A lot of them don’t even have jobs and are parasites on their long suffering wives. We saw this same pattern after the Anglo-Boer war.

These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.

      • Seems that Christians are more divorce prone and depressed than secularists.

        http://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/biblestudyandtheology/perspectives/sr_prozacchristians.aspx

        CBN.com – It’s become common knowledge that the 60 percent divorce rate inside the church — a place that upholds the sanctity of marriage — is higher than in secular society.

        But failed marriages and broken homes are not the only tragedies that Christians share with the rest of the world. Depression, a recent epidemic in the church, is spreading throughout the Christian community.

        During a recent visit to my hometown in North Carolina, I spent the afternoon with a friend’s mother. We talked about the issues many women face at the large Southern Baptist church where I grew up. She spoke of the different women she knows who take anti-depressants.

        “I wouldn’t be surprise to find out that half the women in the church are on anti-depressants,” she said.

        I was shocked. She told me story after story about women she knew who have strong faith and selflessly serve in the congregation but are also prescribed Prozac and other common depression medication. I realized that I also knew several women, my friends and my mother’s friends, who use anti-depressants.

        What makes this situation more troubling is the recent news about increased suicide risk now associated with popular anti-depressants. ABC News Channel 7 in Los Angeles reported a couple weeks ago that:

        “The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is finally considering stronger warning labels on anti-depressants after acknowledging for the first time that the drugs appear to lead some children and teenagers to suicide …

        “According to their findings [of the study], the worst offenders are Effexor, Luvox and Paxil, but even Prozac, the only anti-depressant specifically approved for young people, can increase suicidal tendencies.”

        Currently the FDA only connects this risk to teens and children, but the results of the study could be enough to make any adult on these medications think twice.

        But for Christians, the issue goes beyond the safety of the medication. The question that needs to be asked is why. Christians claim the truth from the hymn “Power in the Blood” and the Apostle John’s concept of “abundant life”. But why are they caught up in an emotional existence of mere survival? The church is supposed to be the place to find the answer, the cure, Jesus. Instead, it has become a social gathering of sedated spiritualists lining the pews. They dress neatly, implying a sense of togetherness, and they sing songs that describe surrender to their God that they didn’t naturally wake up experiencing.

        This is not an attack on individuals who struggle with chronic depression, for which some medication is useful for a period of time. But, there is something seriously wrong with church teaching and discipleship when half of a 4,000 plus population church takes anti-depressants. I would think someone — pastors, elders, and church leaders — would connect the dots and say “look, something doesn’t add up.”

        This disease choking the church may be embedded in the phenomenon that a friend described to me as “sin management.” Some churches are being unrealistic about addressing shortcomings, failures, disappointments and sin in the lives of Christians. Depression and anxiety have become private struggles that women and men mask with medication and mention only in confidence to one another. But these strongholds are not being addressed from the pulpit. If Jesus really is “the way, the truth and the life,” then why isn’t that message applied to the issue of depression?

    My advise to all those believers who are getting steamed up by the provocations of satan, is to treat it with the contempt it deserves, remember Jesus instructed his disciples to go out and preach the word to all of the world and if they would not hear to kick the dust of that place from your feet and move on, we don’t waste our time on those who stop up there ears, use your time judiciously don’t waste your good time arguing with the spiritually dead.

    And for those of you who follow the dictates of Satan, I ask the holy spirit to stop you in your path to destruction and give you cause to change.

    For I to was once blind but now I see, I to was filled with Hate so much so it nearly destroyed me, but my God loved me and filled my soul with his love and I was healed praise God and now pray for your healing.

    I want you to know what it is to walk in Love and understanding and with peace in your heart and in your mind.

    we don’t want you to be unsettled and disturbed by belief in a God you can’t see, we wish you to experience it and change your life for a better life.

    I know this is hard for you now and understand your rebuke and forgive you for your retaliations and verbal displays announcing your displeasure, these things I did also, but Jesus was at the door of my hart he was waiting for me to open my eyes to see to open the door to my heart and let me in, he is knocking on the door of your heart now, may he give you the strength to open that door and let him in.

    May God Bless you.

      You godbots are the ones who are blind and delutional because you see things that you can not show to rational people. Your gods are in your heads and those heads are very noisy. Luckily only you can hear the noises. And worst of all you expect us to take you seriously.

  20. To Mighty men dismayer.

    Good Day there friend, your mention of the failings in the church are noted, The church is a place where people go to find the hope they need to live a better life and cope with there everyday problems.

    None of them like none of us are super spiritual, we are not Little Gods we are sinners suffering like every other person trying to make sense of a corrupt and dying world, a world we are responsible for but take for granted, a world run by men who are at the best of time unqualified to be in that position of power.

    People are frustrated and inadequate to knowing all of the answers and in there failed state turn to the only hope there is and that hope is in God.

    So they go to church in the hope of finding fulfillment but for many of us we have not yet found how to apply faith, i remember reading a prayer by someone, saying, I believe in you Lord my God but please forgive me for my unbelief.

    Now that is true for most of us out there, we can’t blame the church for this, most churches do their level best to accommodate all of our needs the best way they know how, however the scriptures will tell you that God say’s your ways are not my ways and his thoughts are way above ours, however God see’s all we are trying to do and even in our failed mode, we endure to the end and he who is, the power the unseen almighty reads the hearts of man and can see his worth and is forgiving and considerate toward us.

    People go to church to be with like minded people and to be of service to one another to bind together in Love, they don’t go there because they are the best people in the world, often they are among the worst, but they don’t want to stay that way they need help and the church is their sanctuary, sometimes their last hope and some times they find God there.

    Jesus was scorned for spending much time with people of disrepute and not enough time with the pharisees, what was his answer, he said I came to heal the sick and the brokenhearted, he didn’t come to save those who though they were well.

    The church represents his sanctuary where sick and needing people like us go in the hope of being made well in the hope of finding a healing for our miss forgiving s, our mistakes and wrong doings.

    so to conclude my dear friend, don’t look to the church for perfection the church is there for correction of miss perfection, and the church because it is run by people is itself not perfect, if you think you can do any better, please be my guest and join a church near to you and if you really care so much for humanity, perhaps your wisdom would be a welcomed breath of fresh air.

    May God be with you.

  21. Holyshmoly,

    Hello Friend, I hear you regarding the Afrikaner and Paul, and yes I myself don’t understand paul’s stand against woman having any say and all I can say is once again, paul was of course a man and as men we are human and as humans we are full of all sorts of failings, as for me I respect all woman and love to hear what they have to say, many of them speak from a position of strength many men have yet to learn about.

    As for the Afrikaner, I would say their failings are no different from men of all other nations and like men of all other nations many of them are first class and very special people.

    All of us are alike and we should not point a finger in any particular direction, there is usually 3 fingers pointing back at you when you do this.

    Remove the log from your eye before trying to remove the speck from the eye of others.

    As for your remarks on Angus, perhaps you should try taking a leaf from his book it might change your life.

    So many of us don’t believe we are living in the final day’s the Last day’s look around you friend, do you see peace in the world do you see Honesty in our governments in the world, is everything working well as you would have expected it to in the 21st century? Who’s fault is this? I’ll tell you one thing friend, It’s not God’s fault, don’t be so hard on him you may have some explaining to do sooner than you think.

    May God Bless you

                    1. Die eksperiment met “intercessory” gebede het gevind dat julle gode glad nie na julle geprewel luister nie.
                    2. Die mediese wetenskap het bewys dat ‘n vrou nie aseksueel kan geboorte gee nie – so waar kom julle Jesus dan vandaan?
                    3. Die mediese wetenskap het ook bewys dat iemand wat dood was vir 3 dae (of 4, soos Lasarus) nie lewendig kan word nie.
                    4. Die natuurwette sluit geheel en al die storie uit dat Josua die Son laat stilstaan het.

                    Dit is nou al 4 (en daars baie meer) wetenskaplike bevindinge wat verklaar dat julle mites net dit is – mites.

    Peter, the fact that you cannot identify the contradictions in your statement, tells me that you are either very stupid or otherwise blinded by years of dogmatic propaganda.

    If your little jesus loves me so much and knew beforehand how I would turn out, then surely I am not to blame for being an atheist? Your jesus only exists in your head Peter. If he wanted to convert me, he could do it at the blink of an eye. All I require is some very basic evidence. Like, let’s say a quick visit to me. One would expect this a breeze for a super intelligent, omnipotent god. Its actually straght forward: your gods want Malherbe to believe in them. For this to happen, Malherbe requests some simple evidence. Without this, Malherbe would regard himself as dishonest. Simple, he Peter?

    Oh, what do I hear you say? Not the way your gods operate? Fair enough, but I, on the other hand do operate the honest way. With that silly old concept called evidence, that is. And according to you your gods made me this way. So now your gods are angry because of the imperfection of their own creation/doing. Does not sound like omnipotent at all, Peter. Do you agree? Not? Well in that case I give your gods the right to smite me right here and now…come on Peter’s gods, smite me now!…..nothing happening Peter. I’m sill very much alive. Which leads me to conclude that I am more powerful that your gods.

    Sorry about bursting your bubble so brutally Peter, but I have hope for you – – present to you the allpowerfull Batgod. He is the real One. He is the God of gods. Convert to him for eternal happiness and life. Convert or be doomed to the land of stinking penguins.

    Oh and by the way, you assume that non-believers were never religious – not true – many of us, including I were religous at some point in our lives. Fortunately we saw the dishonesty of this self-invented skydaddy syndrome and came to our senses. Personally I can attest to the fact that my life was far more fulfilling and unburdened after getting rid of the ridiculous shackles of religious dogma and guilt.

          Kop & Hart: ‘God se orde vir mans en vroue’

          Op 10 Oktober 2012 word ‘n 14-jarige meisie van Pakistan in ‘n skoolbus op pad skool toe geskiet. Die man wat haar geskiet het is nie ‘n rower of immorele persoon nie, nee, die teendeel is eerder waar. Hy is ‘n diep gelowige man wat met sy hele wese God aanbid. Hy glo in reg en verkeerd en hy glo onwrikbaar in die voorskrifte wat hy in die woord van God kry.

          Hier in Suid-Afrika is daar ‘n gelowige prediker. Hy is ‘n diep gelowige man wat met sy hele wese God aanbid. Hy glo in reg en verkeerd en hy glo onwrikbaar in die voorskrifte wat hy in die woord van God kry. Hy het nou wel niemand geskiet nie maar hy glo net soos die man van Pakistan dat God se voorskrifte baie duidelik is oor die plek van die vrou.

          En wat glo hulle is hierdie voorskrifte? Wel, dat die vrou haar plek moet ken in die orde van God. Met ander woorde God het alles geskape sodat dit pas binne ‘n bepaalde orde en solank ons as mens binne hierdie orde beweeg sal God nie vir ons kwaad word nie en sal Hy ons uiteindelik seën.

          Die orde lyk soos volg: die man is net ‘n klein bietjie minder as die engele (soos onder meer gevind kan word in die Bybel, Hebreërs 2 vers 7) en die vrou is vanuit die man gemaak (Genesis 2 vers 22). Daarom moet vroue besef dat hulle deur God as ‘n mindere wese geskape is en dus vanselfsprekend tot onderdanigheid aan die man moet leef. Deur hulle onderdanigheid eer hulle dan vir God en Sy skeppingsplan.

          En as jy gedink het net hierdie twee diep gelowige mans verstaan dit so, is jy ver verkeerd. Baie diep gelowige vroue in Pakistan sowel as hier in Suid-Afrika glo dit ook as absolute waarheid. Hoor hoe skryf Ina de Klerk, deel van die groep Susters vir Ekklesia in Pretoria dit: “Solank as wat die vrou onderworpe is, sal sy onder die beskerming van haar man se outoriteit wees. Die oomblik wat sy, onder sy outoriteit uit-rebelleer, beweeg sy onder die outoriteit uit, en kom dan te staan teen die aanvalle van die Satan en boonop ook God se toorn.”

          Hoe durf ons verskil van sulke diep gelowige mans en vroue wat net uitleef en verkondig wat God self in Sy woord leer? Want die diepgelowige man van Pakistan, die diep gelowige prediker van Suid-Afrika en die diep gelowige vrou van Pretoria sê tog maar net wat God self sê. Nie waar nie?

          Die enigste probleem is net dat die diep gelowige man van Pakistan en die diep gelowige prediker van Suid-Afrika nie sal saamstem oor wie presies God is nie. Want die een is ‘n fundamentalistiese Moslem en die ander een is ‘n fundamentalistiese Christen. Wie is reg en wie het die kat aan die stert beet? Wel dit hang seker maar net af van watter kant jy kyk?

          Maar terug by die twee diep gelowige mans wat albei wel saamstem oor die onderdanigheid van die vrou. Albei glo dit, albei predik dit, en albei leef dit.

          Die Moslem man van Pakistan kry in die woord van sy God, die Koran, die volgende: “O, julle mense, vrees jou Here, wat die man van ‘n enkele siel geskep het en daaruit sy metgesel die vrou geskep het.” (Soera 4:1) En alhoewel die Koran die werke van mans en vroue as afhanklik in hul bestaan beskou, word hulle nie beskou as gelyke waarde nie. Die manne is veel hoër op as die vroue en hulle gaan so ver om duidelik te sê ‘n man is beter as ‘n vrou.

          En die diep gelowige Christen-prediker van Suid-Afrika, kry in die woord van sy God, die Bybel, die volgende: “…omdat hy [man] die beeld en heerlikheid van God is; maar die vrou is die heerlikheid van die man. Want die man is nie uit die vrou nie, maar die vrou uit die man. Want die man is ook nie ter wille van die vrou geskape nie, maar die vrou ter wille van die man. Dit is nie God se wil dat ‘n onderhewige sal heers oor ‘n hoër een nie, maar dat hulle eerder onderworpe sal wees.” (1 Korinthiërs 11:7-9.)

          Dis verstaanbaar dat albei glo hulle beweeg binne hulle God se wil, as hulle daagliks heers oor hulle vrouens en kinders. Nou is dit interessant om te sien hoe hierdie verstaan in die praktyk gestalte kry.

          Die diep gelowige man van Pakistan skiet die 14-jarige meisie, Malala Yousafzai, omdat sy durf aandring op gelyke regte vir vroue en daarmee vra vir onderrig vir meisies.

          Want hoe kan dit? Meisies moet by die huis bly, besig met huiswerke wat pas by ‘n vrou. Dit is tog God se wil!

          Die diep gelowige prediker van Suid-Afrika verkondig aan duisende mans om hulle “hoofskap” teenoor hulle vrouens en kinders terug te neem om sodoende “God se natuurlike orde” vir verhoudings te herstel. ‘n Ideologie van hiërargie wat mans se hoofskap afdwing in die huis, as leiers en meerderes in die beroepswêreld, organisasies, kerk en samelewing. Dit terwyl die afmetings van geweld teen vroue en kinders, in die Suid-Afrikaanse samelewing (ook in Christelike huishoudings) die hoogste in die wêreld is. En omdat albei met mag en beheer werk, lees hulle en verkondig hulle die Bybel en die Koran vanuit hierdie gesag. Die hartseer realiteit is dus dat hierdie verstaan van die “orde van God,” met tyd altyd sal neerkom op geweld, mishandeling en onreg. Dalk nie in alle gevalle nie, maar net soos met slawerny skep dit gunstige toestande vir misbruik en magsmisbruik.

          Want die wyse waarop mans beheer uitoefen en mag in stand hou, vorm uiteindelik die kern van geweld teen vroue. Soos Elize Morkel (’n kliniese sielkundige) dit dan ook stel: “Talle studies dui daarop dat die beginsels van mans se ‘hoofskap’ en die onderwerping van vroue aan mans in die meeste godsdienste en kulture regstreeks verbind kan word met geslagsgegronde geweld en, nog meer ontstellend, met vroue se besluit om in gewelddadige huwelike te bly.”

          Dit maak nie saak hoe hard die voorstanders van hierdie antieke en voorwetenskaplike verstaan van menswees dit probeer regverdig nie, uiteindelik sal dit lei tot geweld en miskenning van menswees. En hiervan is die voorbeeld van Malala Yousafzai, die 14-jarige Pakistanse meisie wat in haar kop geskiet is, ‘n wrede herinnering.

          Die oop gesprek waarvoor ek en vele soos ek pleit sal juis moet begin met ‘n eerlike dekonstruksie van manlikheid binne die moderne verstaan. Mans sal moet eerlik kyk na hoe hulle hul identiteit verstaan en hoe lyk ‘n ware spirituele man binne die konteks van die huidige ongelyke magstrukture van geslag, ras, seksualiteit en klas. Dit sou verseker kon bydra tot ‘n meer vredevolle en gelyke samelewing. Dit waarvan Boeddha, Jesus, Ghandi, Mandela en vele ander gedroom het.

          So gepraat van Mandela, ek wonder wanneer sal Suid-Afrika se inklusiewe Grondwet ooit sy pad na die hart van die verskillende godsdienste vind? Soms dink ek ons Grondwet is meer spiritueel as wat enige van die verskeie godsdienste in ons land ooit kan wees.

          Natuurlik is daar wêreldwyd vele mans wat vernuwend en inklusief dink as dit kom by vroue. Maar ongelukkig word baie van daardie denke deur fundamentalistiese denke getroef.

          Totdat mans in die algemeen ’n kopskuif maak en inklusief begin dink, sal vroue gemarginaliseerdes en miskendes bly. En mans hoef nie as hulle nie wil nie, buite hulle godsdienste te gaan soek vir hoe om nuut te dink oor die sake nie. Want as ek na iemand soos Jesus kyk was sy vertolking van manwees baie anders as die “hoofskap” model wat die Islam en Christendom tans verkondig. Het hy nie juis op ‘n alternatiewe manlikheid gewys nie; een wat gegrond was op wederkerigheid eerder as oorheersing, vennootskap eerder as hiërargie en, heel belangrikste, op liefde eerder as mag.

          Die hartseer realiteit is egter dat die gesprek binne vele godsdienste nou al lankal verby sy vervaldatum is. Ek begin nou saamstem met die Amerikaanse komediant, George Carlin: “Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.”

          Komaan, die tyd is hier vir ‘n nuwe, gelyke en respekvolle menswees. En Joss Whendon slaan die spyker op die kop as hy sê: “Equality is not a concept. It’s not something we should be striving for. It’s a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women, and the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who’s confronted with it. We need equality. Kinda now.”

      • The Angus groupies next door to me have now chopped down their previously half-cock chopped tree after I had a couple of trees professionally removed on my side. I’m a woman, you see, and they have a serious, serious problem with my lack of a penis AND my refusing to bow down to the power of Jesus vested in the Godbot husband when my husband is away on business. You would not believe these cunts. There was a single woman living here before us and she got into screaming matches with the husband because he would not stop spying on her and prying into her life. He finally poisoned her cat. These Angus bastards will destroy your pets if you don’t accept their “authority” in the name of Jesus. Now I mention the trees because I work from home and in half an hour I earn more with my business than it takes the shmuck next door all day. So the godiot wife phones the husband at work because the tree fellers are at my house and he had better come right over to exert control over things. Husband comes home and makes a big show of wishing the tree fellers happy new year and all the rest of it, while making an even bigger show of refusing to greet me and glaring angrily at me.

        What these bastards have also been doing is going around telling everyone who wants to listen to their shit that it is a shame that my husband is too stupid or too afraid of me to divorce me. What makes me sick to my stomach is that these cunts are divorced and remarried. Jesus specifically said that if you divorce and marry again, you are an adulterer, if you marry someone who is divorced, you are an adulterer, finish and klaar. Most Buchan godbots are divorced losers who have been wiped out financially by their divorce kak. They turn to Jesus because they want a second chance. But Jesus never promised anyone an unconditional second chance. Terms and conditions appy: you have to stop your sin, ie adultery. But they have the bloody nerve to try to ostracise me and make my life difficult because they want to see me divorced like they are. Misery wants similar company.

    Manifestation for Basic Human Rights opposed by Organized Religion

    Where ever in the world you find the following human rights opposed, you will find organized religious organizations are in the forefront opposing these human rights as well as justice for the victims. They also try to take away some of these basic human rights in the name of their dogma, even if you do not believe in their religion. Here is a list, in no particular order. There is a lot more to add to this list, so please leave me your suggestions in the comments. This is a work in progress.

    1.) The empowerment of women (long friggin list for that)

    2.) A women’s right to a safe abortion

    3.) Freedom from religious prosecutions

    4.) The right for every child to have a proper scientific education

    5.) The prosecution of child rapists who work for religious organizations

    6.) Gay Rights (long friggin list for that)

    7.) Every human’s right to euthanasia

    8.) Every human’s right to criticize religion

    9.) Every person’s right to get a divorce

    10.) Every women and man’s right to safe birth control and safe sex

    11.) Every child’s right to a religious-free education

    12.) Censorship in media because of religious intolerance

    13.) Religiously motivated wars and violence

    14.) Bodily mutilation to children because of religious dogma

    15.) Any law based of any religious dogma that carries any penalty of any kind to anybody

    16.) Tax advantages given to any religious organizations

    17.) Religious organizations giving medical advice based on their dogma, that hurts and kills people eg. the official stance on condoms and birth control by the RCC, policies on birth control, faith healing and any other snake poison that they claim will cure or prevent you from getting hurt

    18.) Violence sponsored by any religion because they believe they were offended

    19.) Religious organizations who serve in any form as an authority of justice under any circumstances, as well as the carrying out and or endorsements of any punishments

    20.) An adult’s right to charge money for sex, always opposed by most religious organizations

    21.) Religious organizations having anything to do with sex education for children, teenagers, men, women, or really, to anyone at all, makes no sense and should not be allowed in the public domain. But the religious insist on having a finger in the pie everywhere

    22.) Every women’s right to refuse to marry into pre arranged marriages, whether child, teen or adult

  40. .. cutting short this little delirium of a tale ..

    My point being,

    “Religion is the emulation of the adult by the child. Religion is the encystment of past beliefs: mythology, which is guesswork, the hidden assumptions of trust in the universe, those pronouncements which men have made in search of personal power … all mingled with shreds of enlightenment. And always the ultimate unspoken commandment is “Thou shalt not question!”. But we do anyway. We break that commandment as a matter of course. The work to which we have set ourselves is the liberating of the imagination, the harnessing of imagination to humankind’s deepest sense of creativity.”

      3- To expect or suppose; think (I believe they will arrive shortly.)
      Intransitive verb:
      1- To have firm faith, especially religious faith
      2- To have faith, confidence, or trust (I believe in your ability to solve the problem.)
      3- To have confidence in the truth or value of something (We believe in free speech!)
      4- To have an opinion; think (THey have already left, I believe.)

      Meaning of humankind=
      1- The human race; humanity; all of the living human inhabitants of the earth
      Synonyms : homo sapiens, people, community, human beings, mortals, human species

I don’t agree with abortion as a method of contraception. There are too many young girls in this country who don’t use contraception, the lovers don’t use condoms, they want child grants, then they change their minds, then the state has to sort it out by giving them a free abortion. If I were a health care worker, and I could have a say in these things, I would allow the first abortion, but should the same woman rock up again with another unwanted pregnancy, offer an absolute choice between a second abortion together with total hysterectomy, or bear the child to term, If they choose the first option, they can carry on with their free and easy ways without bringing another hiv positive child into the world. Not having any children is a big taboo with the majority of the population. Yet I also know that staff at clinics refuse young women contraceptive pills because they haven’t produced any babies yet. What does a young woman without a job or a husband want a baby for? It’s a big social problem, this engendered attitude that women must pump out children or not be considered properly women. Arsehats like Jacob Zuma make it worse. Women should be encouraged to use preventative contraception.

This is a non-issue in South Africa because all marriages in this country are civil unions, ie you can marry in the church or by tribal custom but you can only be legally married in a civil ceremony at a civil marriage office. So two weddings for the believers and traditionalists. This sensible arrangement sorts out a lot of problems before they can even occur. If gay men or women want to marry each other in a civil union, what of it? If some churches don’t admit same sex marriage, what of it? We don’t go around telling the churches who they may marry or not marry, so what right does a fundamentalist have telling others how to live or what to do?

Fundie women are all as depressing as stale dishwater. .

  50. And of course you don’t need to marry (again) at the Department of Home Affairs as long as there is a recognised marriage officer present at a church wedding, and as long as the paperwork is handed over to Home Affairs. So then you are married according to church as well as state. Personally I have no experience of being married in a church.

    • “And what you write is that a woman can have more than one husband. . .” You twist my words. I’m not a fan of divorce, but most, if not all, fundies go from one divorce to the next, always getting married in church. Within two years they are divorced after the expensive wedding and reception. Ex-wife tries to hock the engagement and wedding rings only to find they are worth a few hundred at the pawnbrokers. Fundies obey the letter of the biblical law, but then they feel cheated and think they are not getting enough out of life or the wife.

  52. Sorry Moly What I meant to ask was – Is it “technically” possible to marry more than one person according to the law?, so a woman can have more than one husband and visa versa, I don’t know if it is “wrong” or “right” I just thought that if I marry “A” and she marries “B” and then “B” – her “second” husband marries another woman, say “C” , then I can marry “C” again and then we can have a hel of a family.

    Would that be possible?

    • Personally I would have a HUGE problem marrying another man because there are only a very limited number of men on this planet who can put up with me, and I with them. I suppose it could be acceptable for men to marry more than one wife if they can afford to do so, though I wouldn’t want a polygamous husband myself.

Jip it’s not easy sharing your live with another person, especially someone who wants to control everything and everyone and they can get frustrated and angry and make life unpleasant, and all the time the control freak thinks “I’m right, I’m doing this for the good of the family, course, company,. . . .” but you know all that.

    I sometimes look at them and think “why” why do you want control everything, do you want to be a “hero” – secure your survival – “see that no-one dirty gets thru (Pink floyd?) – or do you keep an tight ass not to get screwed – cunningly manipulate everyone, almost unconscious. . .

  55. It is a little late I know, but there is a few unanswered questions.
    You say we ask for healing through Jesus Christ and our children die? But where did you hear that? I believe because I personally have seen a person with one leg shorter than the other walk out of the church with even legs after being prayed for, I have seen a deaf person healed and I have had certain things happening in my life that could’nt possibly be coincidence… Like a few weeks ago I had a huge personal problem and 2 people at church just came up to me and told me what God told them for me, it baffled me? He answered my questions… And later that week my friend also came up to me and said the same thing, another friend asked God for a sign… He randomly went ons Facebook and there was apost made by some random guy he doesn’t even know which answered his question of 5 minutes ago?
    I understand the fact that you can’t believe but please stop trying to offend Christians in the general wherever you do.
    Not all Christians understand the Bible fully but they interpret it as a book of pure judgement and miss the part of pursuing others with love.

    • Mr Frederick, let’s first define a miracle. In my book it is something that cannot be explained by the natural science, I.e it is deemed “unnatural”. E.g. there exists a 100 different possible explanations why someone with seemingly incurable cancer strain, might be cured from the disease. It is therefore not deemed a miracle. A miracle would be when someone loses an arm and the arm grows back.

      Now you might think that the example you mention regarding the guy with one leg shorter than the other falls within the definition of a miracle. I think not. Here is the reason why: ask yourself the simple question – is it not more likely that a plausable alternative to a miracle exists? What if the guy was a prankster? What if he colluded beforehand with the faith healer? Do you know him personally? Did a medical practitioner verify that his one leg was indeed shorter than the other? (By the way, its quite easy to fake this) Most important: did this incident take place in a controlled environment?

      Tell me Frederick, why do you think nobody on planet earth has to date claimed the 1million dollar from James Randy? Nobody! Don’t you think this is odd? (Google ;ames Randi if you are not familiar with this bet.)

      You guys believe this crap because you WANT to. You have a need to believe in a skydaddy. That does not make it the truth.

        Mallies, kan natuurlike wetenskap asb bewussyn verduidelik of elektrisiteit, of gravitasie, miskien dink jy omdat die saaintes kan verduidelik hoe dit werk en hoe om dit te manipileer – of ‘n formule kan verskaf – dat dit ‘n verklaaring is van wat dit is.

        Of miskein as dit te moeilik is – en dat jou oudste nou nie agter raak nie – kan natuurlike wetenskap die bestaan van TYD verklaar?

        Ek begin nou wonder of “natuurlik” dan ooit bestaan,is daar iets wat natuurlik is? (Net voor jy begin dink jy ken al die antwoorde, begin by wat is elektriese lading?) En ek sou ook my vermy het as ek jy was, want ek kol nie jou blaf nie, kan natuurlike wetensakap dalk dit verduidelik?

                Mallies dis duidelik dat jou konsepte in jou kop ook maar vaag, verwyderd en ‘n illusie is. Elkekeer as ons by die punt uitkom waat jy moet uithaal en wys, dan kom jy met die jammerbal “ek is nie verantwoordelik vir jou opvoeding nie”, maar jou bek is groot as dit kom by “bewyse”, jy vereis bewyse van ander mense en net bewyse wat vir jou aanvaarbaar of verstaanbaar is, dan is jy hard en onwrikbaar – staan jy soos die man van staal op jou konsepte wat net in jou kop is kastig.

                As die “worshippers” van menselike inteligensie so sukkel om ‘n teorie oor tyd uit te werk, en eintlik kan dit nie met natuurlike wetenskap verklaar word nie, dan behoort dit mos aan jou “on/bo-natuurlik” en dis mos waaraan jy nie “glo” nie. (hoe absurd)

        • Johann, ek het vir jou al verduidelik wat gravitasie is en waar jy die formules kan kry. Hoekom vra jy dan weer die vraag. Het jy nie verstaan wat Einstein geformuleer het nie? Sê dan so i.p.v. mens se tyd te probeer mors. Die vergelykings vir electromagnetisme (d.w.s. elektrisiteit en magnetism wat hand aan hand loop) kan jy van Maxwell se vergelykings kry. I.p.v Einstein se tien vergelykings vir gravitasie, het Maxwell net 4, so miskien kom jy reg.

          Soos Malherbe sê ons is nie verantwoordelik vir jou opvoeding nie, so probeer nou self die vergelykings verstaan.

            Ek kan die “effek” van gravitasie ervaar, maar kan jy verklaar hoekom deeltjies mekaar aantrek en hoekom daar ‘n onsigbare krag is wat materie bymekaar hou of is dit die tyd-ruimte wat buig wat die aantrekking is. . . .

            Johannie gooi al sy simpel vragies en hoop ons het nie antwoorde daarop nie, sodat hy beterweterig kan grinnik:”aha, so dit beteken daar is gode”. Die oneerlikheid hiervan behoort vir elke regdenkende mens duidelik te wees. Maar nou ja…

  57. Attended a wedding service today where the pastor’s theme was that “god’s love is unconditional”. A few minuted down the sermon he stated that “those who does not believe in god will one day experience the wrath of god”. What amazes me is not the fact that the pastor did not pick up on this obvious contradiction (pastors are in my view wannabe ministers who are either too lazy or too dumb to complete a simple course to get the official papers). No, what is truly astonishing is the fact that 80 people can sit and listen to this crap for more than an hour, nodding heads in solemn agreement.

    In general my approach is one of live and let live, but I have to admit: sometimes I find the braindead sheepish behaviour of godiots slightly irritating.
