A National Obsession - Prelogue
Must we be doomed to living a life in fear of a God of wrath, vengeance and revenge?
Blind faith is nothing more than just that - Blindness to logic.
Fear and obsession are only controlling factors over our lives if we allow them to be.
Free will means: freedom of choice, freedom from guilt, and freedom from fear.
Self deprecation is not a celestial requirement for happiness, or salvation.
The following is an exercise in mesmerizing, tantalizing, and mystifying poetry to whet your mind, and not meant for the faint of heart, or the languishing intellect:
Poetic excerpts from dreams and reveries
"The self righteous, and self proclaimed followers of their own gods,
shall perish midst the wake of the dawn:
the dawn of the age of enlightenment,
the awakening of the 'spirit of man'.
That awakening to the truths of the universe,
and to the lies of men".
"Man continues to hold vigil over ancient words of the illiterate,
those words oft spoken in haste, and out of their fear.
And from that fear and 'ignoratio elenchi', ill informed men of today still continue to maintain them with hyper vigilance.
With fearful watch over their unfettered beliefs,
they adamantly reject reality, as unfounded".
From Latin literature meaning: ignorance of proof
A fallacy in logic of supposing a point proved, or disapproved, by an argument proving, or disproving, something not at issue.

Poetry of Obscurity, Validity, and Absurdity
The obscurity and validity of the absurdity of ancient beliefs have been lost to any logic, or sensibility.
The hyperbole (extravagant exaggeration) of ancient beliefs, that arose spontaneously, or from an obscure or unknown cause, seems to have manifested itself into mass hypnosis.
Mind control by the self appointed, self righteous and self serving, took undue advantage over the uneducated.
They created the multi billion dollar enterprise we see today, disguised under the facade of "religion", that offers nothing but illogical principles devoid of any rationality whatsoever.
Those who adhere to these ignorant beliefs are to be viewed with sympathetic sorrow for clinging to such a narrow and skewed view of life in general, and who accept unquestionably their subjugation to a fairy tale existence.
The only evidence of evil in humanity is what can be observed as originating from the confines of one's own mind. Evil emanates from the depths of man's subconsciousness.
All evil and dastardly deeds are manifested strictly from the minds and hearts of men.
The shame of this all, is that we have governments around the globe (and especially the USA) that condone and promote this absurdity for profit and control.
By absurdity, i mean, the literal divining:
"ridiculously unreasonable, unsound, or incongruous. Having no rational or orderly relationship to human life".
A state or condition in which human beings exist in an irrational and meaningless universe and in which human life has no ultimate meaning or value.
A philosophy based on the belief that the universe is irrational and meaningless and that the search for order brings the individual into direct conflict with the universe itself. (existentialism)
