Things I Don't Believe In:
RIGHT and WRONG
"People just make up what's right and wrong to serve their needs. Needs change, and so does right and wrong--for each culture, person and moment."
"Maybe there is some old guy with a long white beard sitting on a throne. Sure I'd be surprised...but would it really make any difference?
"Many people sacrifice much for freedom...But more people run from freedom in terror."
"One person's justice is another person's outrage."
"A family is a group of people who resent each other and wouldn't even be friends if they weren't so codependent. That may be sacred to some, but not to me."
"It comes and goes. It brings happiness and misery. You might as well believe in the gag reflex."
"Anyone who has drank as much as I have knows the senses are not trustworthy. Anyone who has been fooled by a magician should know the same thing."
ORDER IN THE UNIVERSE
"Just tell me what a disordered universe would look like. I can't imagine it would be any different than this one."
This is the Way I Think the World Is:
People prefer self-delusion.
Belief in God and spirits is an expression of powerlessness.
Belief in morality is an expression of self-hatred.
The world is random and chaotic.
Magic is only tricks. Tricks are always done in the simplest way, but the eye is misdirected because people love to be fooled.
I have no control over anything.
I am alone.
Death is nothing. Then we rot and fall apart.
I like it this way and.......
I could be wrong about any of these things.
