Freedom…

I was in Wood Green the other day. For those of you who don’t know what or where Wood Green is ; it is a large area of north London. Filled with £1 shops and a large mall that straddles the road. Deviate of the main strip and it becomes a warren of terrace housing and crime. Think of Vegas done of a budget of £1.50 and you get the idea.

 

The religious were out in force when I was down there. In front of this gleaming bastion of capitalism faith was heavily represented , all on a drive to attract followers.

 

If you are regular reader of the Markdini blog it might become apparent I am with out a region. To me no religion offers what we as human beings need : Freedom. Once we join a religion we become subservient to that religion and that’s not for me.

 

True freedom is a commodity that we are losing in the west. Certain parts of free-speech in the UK are being removed in case you upset a religious person. When we should have tighter controls on what the religious say. I am not one to jump up and down behind my copy of the Daily Mail and say the brown people are taking over, this would all be better with more Church of England churches. One they are not and two it wouldn’t.

 

But we are losing the right to offend people in the UK especially if you offend religion. Some parts of the world you can’t speak out about anything. This is why it so important to keep it in the west. Before it’s gone.

 

If you are a non-theist like myself the religious can hurl all sorts of insults

at you. “You will burn in hell” etc. But if you shout back “Leave them choir boys alone” they take offence. It has to be two way street after all what happened to all that “turn the other cheek” stuff?

 

Don’t be subservient to a religion. Be your own god as countless philosophers have taught us. Be nice to people, don’t be a cunt and enjoy life. Speak out when things are not fair and try not to kill anyone. You don’t need a book to be reminded of this or a place to go on Sunday. Most of us have this hard wired in to us already. Be strong don’t turn the other cheek if someone smites you. There are a lot of shitty people out there deal with them the best you can. That’s a real belief system.

 

You can believe what ever you want. You can call me anything you want for not following you. But don’t get offended when I call you names back. After all aren’t you suppose to turn the other cheek?

 

If we allow the UK to turn back in to a true religious country then we are all fucked. Remember Cromwell. Be your own god. Enjoy life. Do what you want to do and don’t impose your views on others.

Collective multi-verse reincarnation theory

It’s funny how as an atheist I spend a lot of time discussing god and religion. More so then most people who claim to be of a faith, well I suppose they don’t question it. I was discussing with my rather learned brother about reincarnation and the multi-verse. When I stumbled upon my reincarnation multi verse theory of such. Borrowing a little bit from Jung.

 

My theory is and it is just a theory, the same way the X factor is a good show type of theory but this is the crux of it. When we die we get reincarnated in to someone we have met in our lives. So you are born, you live and you die all experiencing Dave Smith once as Dave Smith then everyone else who comes in to contact with Dave Smith.

 

Now this leads to my second part of the theory that there is only a handful of souls because there are people who I will never meet and people you will never meet. Disregarding the theory on six degrees of separation. But once everyone as been met that’s the end. So once I have lived all my lives as Dave Smith I then move on to another existence such as the meerkat from them adverts.

 

I think it’s the Buddhist that believe that once you are the best you can be in one incarnation you move on to the next a higher form. So imagine you are the type that would end up on Trisha or Jez Kyle the next step in evolutionary incarnation would be some more learned and more pleasant. Be it a teacher, priest or the postman so longs it is some one you have met.

 

Each part of the experience adds to the meta experience of being you and once you have tried all these lives then only then can you be enlightened. Unlike Buddhism where you might be an ant then an eagle and then a bus driver. My theory brings the idea you can be the everyone, rich or poor. Even running the country so longs you are the best hoddie you can be at the start.
