*sigh* On this issue I am a disappointment to myself, my family, my friends etc. Began 2009 as a 'christian', I am going to end 2009 as a non-christian/religious individual. Why I say I am a disappointment to myself is because I just do not have faith in anything. I honestly believe that a human who does not have faith even in one thing is extremely flawed, no be small. I think my problem with faith ever since I was a kid was that I never had faith in anything/anybody. That is why till this day I have been unable to muster up even a single bit of 'faith' to brighten my day with. I've always looked at things in terms of reasaonable/rationale. In 2009, I matured a lot in my humble opinion.I have learned to tame my ego and keep it in check lest it lead me to commit great folly. I also learned to speak my truth quietly and clearly and then listen to what people have to say. Give people the respect of listening to what they have to say, even if the whole thing is foolish/ignorant in my opinion.
Family bizness, I really don't have anything to say about this. I love my dad, I love my mom, I love my siblings. Lost enough cousins this year sha because of my ehn 'change of faith'. But it's all good sha, if they love me they will see reason one day. Idk how me not being a christian should affect our relationship as cousins but it's all good sha.
Lol I give myself a solid A- in this category. Even though, lately I've been slacking big time in the financial department but I began this year on a solid solid note.
Education wise I have excelled greatly. I am proud of my achievements and I've even won some things in regards to the good grades/gpa I have in school.
Beginning of this year I was 'talking' to this one girl, but apparently by mid may or so I had changed for the worse in her opinion.I and this girl had been talking for about a year or so and I cannot lie, azazel was madly in love with this babe. But in 2008, the babe had a car accident and became paralyzed, she now uses a wheelchair. A lot of things changed after that accident, my mindset about life changed abruptly, my priorities in life changed big time. I vowed to live the life I wanted, not the life that other people around me wanted for me. Afterall, man pikin has only one life to live in this world abi? Well because of the 'vow' I took I had to renounce christianity nah, I mean all my life I had been pretending to be a christian when I was nothing close to that. Well the babe I was talking to was a 'fervent christian' so me not being christian anymore put a serious serious damp on our relationship.I've asked myself many times, if I say that I am madly in love with her, why can't I just pretend to be a christian just to satisfy her? I mean it's not as if it's hard pretending to be a christian, plenty of 'lukewarm' christians out there. I've done it all my life, surely I can continue for a while longer?Well mehn, I can't pretend anymore in this stage of my life. For wetin?So I can make another person happy? Why? Shey me to no deserve to be happy in this life?Have you guys seen that 'geico comercial' where the cavemen are in the bowling alley and that song by '3 doors down' comes on? The cavemen sing the 'Let me by myself song'? Am sure those of you living in yankee know what I am talking about. And that song just exemplifies how I felt. Lemme even post the lyrics to the song so una fit understand :
"Lately i'm so tired of waiting for you
To say that it's ok, but tell me
Please, would you one time
Just let me be myself
So i can shine with my own light
Let me be myself
Would you let me be myself
As in can azazel be himself?just for once, no need to pretend anymore. Look at me , I pursue happiness with her and clutched desperation. I wanted to solve the problem between I and her but I slowly found myself as an integral part of the problem. I started to wonder maybe I could be 'myself' in the next world not in this world. But I then realised that there comes a time in a man's life when he has to draw the line between 'free will' and destiny.
But anywayz, somepeople had the effontery to imply that the reason the relationship I and the babe had soured was because I couldn't handle the fact that she was 'paralyzed'. Hmm to that I say - Bullshit. Anywayz, so in 2009 in the relationship department sha has been dulling. Because I am only into naija girls and it seems naija babes this days are either on that 'christian/God' steez and if the guy they are talking to isn't on that same 'steez' they start to wonder if Azazel is the antichrist. And to another point, honestly I can't stand dumb babes. Like that just turns me off a babe, the babe might be perfect in terms of body and looks but if her 'brain' is dulling me, I get turned off big time. And some men don't realise this. If you associate yourself with a dumb babe, slowly but surely your brain will start to come down to her level and two of you go become dullards. 'Men's minds are raised to the level of the women with whom they associate with'. If your woman is smart, you to you will be smart, if your woman is as dumb as a broom(no offence to brooms) you yourself will be as dumb as a broom. And well I've dated on and off after that whole incident but honestly guys, I've not been feeling the babes and usually I would pretend to feel them but I just can't anymore @ this stage of my life. I don tire, because I know death is chasing me so I really do not have time to waste 'pretending to like somebody I don't. *sigh* You always see smart men with dumb women but you never see smart women with dumb men.
Thanks blogsville fam for accepting me, started in September and you all have treated me right. Shoutout to Chari and Buttercup for helping me start the blog. I am their 'protege/apprentice', and I am grateful to Ms O as well for also showing me what blogging could be about.

See yall in 2010.

So basically, instead of typing one long post, I decided to just post the Fb statuses that I culled from a certain Fb profile.I want us to discuss any of them you guys find interesting. Trust me, if I had written a post, the ish would have been to long jare. I decided to pity you guys as well as pity my fingers.It would be an understatement to say that there was a certain 'tone' CNN was carrying while delivering the news about this whole terrorist situation. There was something very 'sinister' in the way they referred to Nigeria etc. So on facebook there is this one group on there about this whole terrorist situation that thoroughly proves to me that, when the mob of people agree on a cause, then something is wrong with the entire cause. A mob has enough heads, but no brains.
So e be like say this Umar guy was an arsenal fan, going trophyless for 5 seasons can definitely lead one to go into suicide bombing. Shey una no grree?? Btw I posted this particular statement on my status on fb o, only to see one person like that steal the status 20 mins later without even citing? Rude much..We can like to be citing o, it's common courtesy. Hiss lol. *looks sideways @ ex-schoolnerd*
Status 1 - Is first time Al-Qaeda decides to embrace affirmative action and give a black man a chance @ matyrdom, the guy goes and blows up his penis. This is the last time they trust a black guy to do the job right.
Status 2 - The Difference between a Nigerian Terrorist and an Arab terrorist is?Consideration.An arab terrorist wud have blown dat plane yle it was in the sky nd it wud fallen into atlantic ocean.The 9ja guy had the decency 2 wait until dat plane was on land 2 blow it.Bearin in mind dat it wud be easier 4 the family of the victim...s 2 recover D bodies of their loved ones on land 4 burial rather dan in the atlantic ocean.
Status 3 - U see hypocrisy in high places? It is because Umar wanted to blow up a plane in the U.S that is why everybody they vex. If Umar had entered a plane headed to 'Burkina Faso/Equitorial Guinea/Mozambique' how many of us would give a hoot? Again slowly by our actions,we again prove that the life/security of America is m...ore important than the life/security of our fellow African Nations.*SMH*
Status 4 - Question 2 all my muslim/Christian friends.If Jesus/Mohammed were alive 2day,wud dey condemn or forgive Umar?Bcus I c a lot of condemnin goin around,but not enuf 4giveness.Wat happened 2 'turnin the other cheek'?If ur enemy slap u,u turn the other cheek.Same tin 2 applies 2 terrorism.If ur enemy blows up a plane,giv...e him anoda plane 2 blow.But it's ok sha,we Nigerians are famous 4 preachn wat we can neva practice.
Status 5 - Wow. So it seems like if ur nigerian u can't go to the toilet on an Airplane again with peace of mind?Ahn Ahn look @ how they surrounded dis one plane,just becus a Nigerian simply went inside toilet becus he was sick.E be like say we Nigerians shud start stockin up on diapers and pampers as we might have 2 start goi...n 2 'toilet' like babies.So dat we don't raise suspicion.
Status 6 - Internet Scam emails from next year will now begin to read: "Dear Sir, My name is Omar Abdulmutallab, the twin brother of Umar who was captured in the US last year. He left in my account $400,000,000... etc." (Kola Tobusun
Status 7 - U kno how afta the 9/11 attacks,somppl started beatin/killn Arabs?Well we 9ja peeps dey black so nobody can tell the diff abi?The only prob bein dat we 9ja ppl love 2 'rep' our country wit our shirts nd wit our license plate numbers.As i speak,I myself have gon 2 erase the 'ia'out of Nigeria so wen ppl see my shirt ...dey will see 'Irep Niger'insted of 'Irep Nigeria'.As u c me so,I am now a citizen of Niger Republic.
Status 8 - #OperationcleanupNigeriabytribe- Edo ppl promote all the prostitution,Igbo ppl are the scammers/fraudsters/419,Hausa ppl are either terrorists/sharia law activists,Niger Deltan ppl are either militants/terrorists.Lol Yoruba ppl are really not known 4 any "evil" thing nd the only thing dey love to do is 'Party/Owamb...e'.Pls we Nigerians can strive 2 be more like the Yoruba tribe.Such a peaceful tribe.
In conclusion, when there is a major crisis, and a large group of people gather. There is usually a mob, people start to say things that do not make sense, they utter things out of anger and hate. If you are ever find yourself in a situation where the mob has gone 'mad'? Just remember that when people are angry, they tend to give the responsibility of 'thinking' over to their anus.

Lol my people I have a problem. For the first time in a long time, I have been unable to reach a conclusion on an issue. Let me explain, so everyday of my life things happen to me, I experience things, I watch things, I feel things.I always like to think about all those things that have happened to me and draw "conclusions". These conclusions help me a lot. These conclusions do not necessarily become convictions, because I am the kind of person who continually refines and criticises "my beliefs".
Anywayz, I watched the Avatar movie and as Enoch said on his personal blog that movie had overtones that most people who were intellectual should be able to get. Basically, everything that happened in that movie made me think about the Native Americans in America. If you have not watched the movie, I suggest that you go watch it. Well that movie just got me to thinking about whether genocide/mass murder in some cases is justified. The native americans were primitive, they did not believe in the owning of land, their own culture was severely different from that of Westerners who sought to take over America. My point is this, if the Native Americans had been allowed to do what they were doing undisturbed it is very safe to say that I would not be typing on a keyboard right now and neither would I be overseas right now. I mean I feel like it's time we face facts, the white man back then was smarter, more curious, more inquisitive and certainly more knowledgeable than other "races" at that time. That is why they were able to go through the industrial revolution and hence we came to have factories, economies began to boom and small by small all those things led up to where we are in the world right now in terms of technology, science etc. Anywayz, incase I've lost you guys, all I am trying to ask is whether the abuses suffered by the Native Americans at the hands of the Europeans was worth it in order for us to get what we all enjoy today? Was the sacrifice worth it? Would we have been better off if the Native Americans had been allowed to do what they do without interference? For some reason I also thought about where Jesus said in the bible "Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for a fellow man". So I then replaced that quote with this "Greater love hath no ethnicity than this, that they lay down their lives for mankind".Lol the ethnicity in this case being the Native Americans.The only thing wrong with my line of reasoning is that the Native Americans never laid down their lives willingly, they were murdered, killed and almost exterminated. They suffered all this so that the Europeans could own lands, do explorations, build roads,hospitals, etc. And am asking, at the end of the day. Were their deaths worth it? This is the question that was bothering me and it's making me think to hard this late night. Normally, in other cases of genocide I am like "Genocide is completely wrong and unjustifiable". But I find myself justifying or at least trying to justify the genocide that happened to the Native Americans. If they weren't killed, there would certainly have remained primitive, they would have worshipped whatever they worshipped then, stupid superstitions and taboos would have existed.
I always laugh when Africans always say stuff like "Oh the white man is not smarter than us". Yet we as a continent let the white man come into our continent and convert us to their own religion?Christianity? Islam?etc are all foreign religions. It just makes me wonder how "fickle" the african man must have been that they were not willing to die for their convictions/beliefs. We were paganists and from being pagans we've gone to being christian, muslims etc. And the funny thing is,we've even become more religious than the people who brought the religion to us.Ain't that a bitch? Biggest church in the world with a capacity to sit 50k people is in Naija. Africans take their adopted religions seriously and it amazes me how we sound so convicted with our "newfound beliefs".Am very sure if the asians had colonized us we would be buddhists by now or Hindus. Hiss. Anywayz sha I came across this quote by Stendhal "“All religions are founded on the fear of the many and the cleverness of the few.” Back up this quote with Desmond Tutu's quote which says"When the missionaries came they had the bible and we had the land, they said let us close our eyes. When we opened it, we had the bible and they had the land". As Africans we can like to recognise when we are being "FUCKING MANIPULATED". Now am not advocating that we abandon all religion, but try to always make certain that your religion is 100% about love. Your religion should never bring harm/sorrow/misery to a large portion of people. EVER!!Once your religion, starts preaching hate and division then switch over to "reason" and get back on track.
Lastly, have you ever heard people say that the bible is not a book that should be taken literal? Well I am here to ask, who decides what parts of the bible should be taken literal and what parts should not be taken literal? Our Pastors?Bishops?Popes?All these supposed "men of God" are one or two steps away from a Tiger Wood scandal waiting to happen. And where am from books which are not supposed to be taken literally are called FICTION. Maybe the bible should have been divided into Fiction and Non-Fiction. Instead of Old testament and New Testament. Una no gree??

Omo yall know that I am easily annoyed lmao. And I will admit, i swear if not for chari and buttercup I would not be able to be following the good blogs I follow today. Like chari helped me follow most of the blogs I follow now, so since Chari retire I have had to follow blogs by myself. See me see wahala, yesterday I clicked on somebody's profile so I can see their blog so I can follow it. Only for me to see that the person has 5 blogs, I come dey vex. I can understand people having 2 blogs or even 3 blogs. But 5 blogs is pushing it. What exactly are u writing that you need 5 blogs in other to pen your thought process. Na wa o. Anywayz I decided to follow only one, what else could I do? *sigh*.
Anywayz to a more important Marra.
Was watching a Rerun of Oprah yesterday and there was this woman who won a million dollar lottery and they asked her what she did with the money, she said she spent some and then gave a significant amount to her church. Omo I almost choked, it would be a very cold day in hell if I ever won the lottery and then decided to give the money to a church. Not that what she did was bad o, but for me myself I would not do it.
Omo I can't lie anymore I miss Enoch o, was so bored yday that I went to start reading some of his previous posts. That guy makes/made a lot of sense. Especially his first post about how "religions" are created. It still wows me. I then began to think, all of us know that there is nobody like SANTA CLAUS but every year we talk about him like he really exists. Our kids think that he exists, a lot of money is spent every christmas time because of the myth surrounding Santa Claus. And if you really think about it, we lie to our kids everytime we tell them that Santa Claus is coming. What happens the day that a kid claims to have seen Santa Claus forreal? Will we believe such a child? It just got me thinking and I had to go read Enoch's post on how religions are made. I swear small by small if we let this Santa Claus story simmer, one day Santa will become a deity that people avidly believe in. If yall have time, check out Enoch's post on Religion.When one person suffers from delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.
So guys mehn, I did not know that the word "akata" meant "Wild animal" in Yoruba.... I always thought it meant African Americans. My friend told me it meant Wild Animal.. I was so pissed when I found out that was what it meant. I would get annoyed if an oyinbo person called me a "nigger" but all the while I was calling Black Americans "Wild Animals"... Please for those of you who use that "akata" word, abeg stop using it. It's not right and it's not even funny.
Anywayz to a more funny matter, why does it seem like every church in Naija has offering for building fund? No matter how big their current church building is, the church will still have building fund? After awhile man pikin will start to wonder what manner of "building" this people are trying to build? Tower of Babel? Or abi na Noah's ark? Lmfao. But forreal though, you guys should check to see if what am saying is true.. They always have building fund in all them churches lolmao.
Lastly, l was watching tv on bunibuni.com and I watched all the live show of AY's live show. Damn, that ish had me rolling on the floor laughing my ass off.

hehehe....so i am back once again.lol....i know i was away for too long, 24 hours doesnt just seem enough for me these days....it is as if i am the only one in grad school in this whole world...hahaha..dont mind me. Anyways... so i was chilling with a couple of my friends yesterday and we were just jamming and talking about girls and their promiscuous ways then an issue came up that caused a very big argument.
My cousin Adex said women have always been like that right from time even from the days of Adam. He went further to say that the bible coded a lot of things and it takes really smart people to get it. He said the Forbidden fruit talked about in the book of Genesis was not meant the way it was written. According to the bible. The forbidden fruit was a real fruit and for some reasons Apple always comes to mind whenever you hear The forbidden fruit. Well we all know the story in Genesis chapter 3. for those who dont i will summarize.lol
There Eve was just playing around in the Garden as usual and Then Mr Devil came along. He came in form of a serpent. The Bible refered to the serpent as very crafty. meaning he also has a way with words. So he asked Eve. Hey Eve sweetie how come you eat from all the trees in this garden apart from just one. Eve was like ah!...God said we could eat from every other fruit in the garden apart from this one ooo...... because if we do, we go just die like that. The serpent then said "Na Lie, You no fit die. God knows if you eat from this fruit, you will be like him. Your eyes will be opened and you will be able to differentiate good from evil. Well at the end of the day Eve ate the fruit and took it to Adam and Adam too ate.
So this was where the argument started. My cousins interpretation to that chapter was that. The forbidden fruit really was Sex and what the devil meant by their eyes being opened and they being like God as... if they have sex, they can procreate and only God had the power to create and he wants that power to himself alone that was why he told them that if they Had sex, they would die.
I was angry and i pointed out a verse to him Genesis 3:6 "So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise,  she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate."
I told him that Eve ate the fruit first and that if forbidden fruit meant sex, Eve wouldn't have had sex with herself or was it the Devil he had sex with?... Then i got the shocker of my life. He was like why am i acting Naive. He said do i think women started using their hands very recently? He said the serpent being very crafty must have told her to try her hands and see how good it felt before going to seduce Adam to stick in his John thomas in her pum pum.
Well I this caused a lot of heated argument but then i still think what he said was absolutely wrong. I totally disagree. So i decided to post it here to see what you people think. Its so wrong to give the Bible our own meaning. I am a strong believer and i dont like seeing people dilute the word of God. So lets hear what you think about this
Lmao I was studying for finals yesterday with my friends and we were just Wilding out with Jokes mehn.
So my friend J really brought up something interesting sha. As an African, when oyinbo people ask you if you want to go camping tell them NO! Because Oyinbo people have this tendency to experiement with suffering. Like if they've not suffered before they will want to suffer small by seeing how it is to live in the outdoors. My Friend J said that in Africa people don't go camping because we love living in our houses. Ahn ahn, after living in Huts for all these years, you wan make person go dey pitch tent for outside. The only time you see africans pitching tents is when we land for refugee camps lmao.We don't pitch tents for FUN we pitch tents for SURVIVAL... (As per all the refugee tents in somalia, sudan, uganda) etc? Shey una get?
P.S - I added the survival part in that her statement o. Oyinbo people are to busybody sha, always going camping, hiking, skydiving. That is how most of them get lost, and now everybody starts to worry about where they are. Na who send this people to go hike? Or go camping? Can't u just sit in your house, and figure out how to finish paying off your mortgage. CHai
To my main topic, my friend H who is African American has a girl friend who is Eritrean. Seeing as he is akata, her family is adamantly opposed to them getting married. I think Scribbles did something about this earlier, but I sorta did not pay it tomuch attention. But now am FIRED UP and ready to tackle this issue to it's full extent. This dude and the girl are in love o, but they had to break up because of family pressure. Forget West African cultural pressure our own na small thing, trust me them East Africans do not play when it comes to marriages, you must marry from the clan or from the country.
My Friend H asked me this question @ like 3am in the morning saying "Azazel are we really that different? You and I? I mean africans and afro americans. im looking past the obvious"
I told him that apart from our cultures we were not really that different, and then his pain became my pain o. And that is how I role, once I feel an injustice is being done I own that injustice and make it my own. I remember Scribbles writing about this very same thing, and I laughed at it because I felt that Africans marrying Oyinbo was a serious NO NO.. But now that I know that I was wrong for having such a belief, and to be plain about the whole matter. I was RACIST and PREJUDICIAL!! And from now on, if you ever come across anybody who tells you that marrying an Oyinbo person or an akata person or a person from a different tribe or ethnic group is wrong. Feel Free to label such a baggar, be it your mother, your father, your Gpupsy, Gmomsy, feel free to label such a person a RACIST!! End of Matter. What Fuckerey? Black people be walking around complaining about Racism, yet we practice racism in our very homes everyday? Our parents instill prejudicial thoughts into our heads daily, and please nobody should come here and say that what I am saying is not true. Each one of us has had a prejudicial thought before and if we are being honest, God knows that prejudice usually leads to racism.
Ask yourselves this, when your parents or grandparents tell you not to marry from a certain country, tribe or ethnic group or religious group. What are they implying? Aren't they implying that the caliber of men and women from your area are far better than those in those other places? Aren't those the same ideals that Hitler had? He believed his Aryan race was the best, hence he sought to exterminate all others. That is how small by small, the views of your culture become very racial.
In conclusion, my people I hope I have succeeded in showing you the folly of our ways. We must seek to eradicate racisma and prejudice from our world, in order for it to be a better place. And before we can point fingers at other cultures for being racist and prejudicial, we must first remove racism/prejudice from our own culture. Thereby, people like my friend H and his Eritrean Boo can be in love and even get married without worrying about family tearing them apart.

Mehn where do I start? Yesterday, I had a final paper due in one of my classes and I did not know. Only for me to walk into class, and see all these papers stacked up. I asked if any paper was due today, they said yes the final paper. Omo mehn my heart almost stopped beating, I literally begged the teacher to let me turn it in today and I stayed up all night writing the paper lol. It's all good sha. Then I was walking to go hand in the paper today and I was listening to Badman by Mode 9. Only for me to here this Dog bark, I think say Dog they chase me. I almost pick serious race, only for me to realise that the bark came from inside the song. I was now looking around to make sure that nobody had seen me almost pick race. Chai.
So the other day, a friend of mine who happens to be a christian quoted Mohatma Ghandi the Indian. And I sarcastically asked her why she a christian would be quoting a Hindi man who was obviously in hell? Since Ghandi did not obviously go to heaven seeing as he did not confess Jesus as being his lord and savior, why would a christian then be quoting "sayings" from a man who is in hell? You might as well quote Hitler or Stalin etc? Moreover, protestants who are not catholics are not catholics for a reason, obviously protestants do not subscribe to the same beliefs as catholics do. So why would a protestant be quoting "sayings" from a catholic like Mother Theresa? Hmm I wonder. Then to a more interesting note, catholics who are not protestants are obviously not protestants for a good reason, because they also do not subscribe to protestant beliefs. So why would a protestant be quoting "sayings" from a protestant like Martin Luther King. Catholics would not be surprised if protestants end up in hell, and protestants would not be surprised if catholics end up in hell. Anywayz, I was just wondering Lol.
To my last point, I was wondering what you guys would do if it was possible for you to be God for a day? What would you do? I know some of you typically lack the ability to imagine, but just imagine the possibility of being God for a day. What would you be able to do?
Hope Finals are going well for you guys? Hope the GPA's keep on rising lol.

My people how una dey? Hope the sermon in church was not to long today? Mark Twain said this about sermons lol. "A good sermon should be like a woman's skirt: short enough to arouse interest but long enough to cover the essentials.”
A lot of people accuse me of disrespecting their beliefs lol. When I criticise or make a sarcastic remark about ther faith, religion or belief they immediately berate me by saying that I should learn to "respect people's beliefs and faith". Omo I am LMAO everytime I hear that, can you imagine what kind of world we would have if everybody went around respecting each other's views? What if everybody had decided to respect "Hitler's beliefs" concerning the extermination of the Jews? There wuld be no Jews left. Or maybe if the slave abolitionists had respected the slave owners "beliefs" in owning slaves? There would surely be so many slaves around today. My point is this, everybody and everyone is entitled to his/her beliefs, but not every belief is entitled to my "respect". Capiche? You have a right to your beliefs, but your beliefs do not have a right to my respect. Respect the believer not the belief. I encourage all of you to always ask questions, "he/she who asks questions is a fool for five minutes, but he/she who never asks questions is a fool for eternity". I honestly do not get how people can get by in this world perfectly fine without knowing anything. People are scared to have opinions, they are scared to think, talkless of search for the truth no matter what it is. Only barbarians are not curious about where they come from, how they came to be, where they are, where they appear to be going, whether they wish to go there, and if so, why,a nd if not,why not. Ask yourselves these questions daily.
Mehn I remember asking one time why the world was the way it is, and somebody told me that it's because there is not enough love in the world. I laughed at that comment then but this days It really has gotten me thinking. Jesus preached love, and his life was all about compassion and love. Why can't people just follow his common sense teaching? Love might indeed change the world, but look around your environment and you'll notice people making wicked jokes at other people's expense, people being mean for no other reason than beause they want to. Where s the LOVE??? Even you religious people self, where is the love that yall are suppose to be exhibiting? Bubbles have you listened to Hero by Nickelback? That song just explains this love subject to me in clarity.
Anywayz, I prayed and asked God the other day to strike me dead in my sleep if my criticisms of christianity were offmark and deeply wrong. I am pleased to say that I am alive and well and hope to remain in my current condition for the foreseeable future. E be like say the almighty don give me serious "Seal of Approval". So I put this up on my facebook status and everybody was like "Wow" and even the christians couldn't even say anything because as far as they were concerned, God had not struck me dead hence, I must be right in my criticisms of the religion. Honestly, I was disappointed in the reaction of people. When I say that most religious people do not know how to reason, they will say that I am insulting their intelligence. Logic dictates that just because I did not die in my sleep does not necessarily mean that God approves of my criticism. If any of you have taken a logic class, you would have come across "informal fallacies", my statement would fall under Appeal to Ignorance. Trust me alot of religious people commit this sort of fallacy time and time again, it's becoming ridiculous.
Ask the average born again christian or muslim about how they came to trust somuch in their faith, they'll probably start by saying "If you know what God/Allah/Jesus has done for me ehn you would understand why I believe in him somuch", now this is all fair and all but try getting them to share what God did for them and they will narrate a story of how they were in desperate strides and a miracle happened and something good now happened to them, the something good that happened is now translated as coming from "God". First, this style of argument is an informal fallacy and it falls under False Cause Fallacy. Christians "illegitimately assume that one possible cause of a phenomenon is the cause although reasons are lacking for excluding other possible causes" and they do this time and time again, you get a new promotion at work, you get an A in your class, you get a new car you attribute all this good things to God when it could possibly be other things or even other "supernatural beings" like the devil doing all this good things to you. No christian was able to disagree with my status because they themselves always make the very same kind of argument. *sigh*. I hope you guys are getting my point? A whole lot of us commit informal fallacies almost everytime when trying to prove why something good has happened to us, we immediately assume that it must be God who's done the good thing for us, because we beliee that our God is such a "good God". But funny enough, we never attribute the bad things to God, we always dash the bad things to the devil, or we even go as far as blaming ourselves for the bad things. But God never gets any blame.
Now to be fair to both sides, when you meet an atheist who tries to say "God does not exist because he cannot be seen", then that also is a fallacy. Just because you cannot see God, does not mean that he does not exist. So for the christians or religious people, use this picture as a reference next time an atheist tries to argue that way lol.

So yesterday was World Aids Day and am guessing yall knew about it. Anywayz, I was having a discussion with this professor yesterday concerning "Human Nature". I was letting him know that I had no faith in the compassion of Human Beings. It can't be trusted, but he disagreed with me and said that he really had faith in Human Beings, and as long as they were educated and made aware of issues, people will act to prevent "Fuckerey". I "rolled my eyes" at his statement, his optimism was making me have headache, I kept trying to prove to him that just because you make people aware of a crisis or disaster does not mean that people are "obligated" to give a crap about the issue.
For example, a whole lot of people know that women are getting raped in Congo, but do they do anything about it? Nope. Why? Because they are indifferent to the situation, if you ain't talking about money you ain't talking about SHIT!! But seriously though, take the "Aids Day" thing,just because you've educated people about aids and made them aware of the current statistics does not mean they are going to take the solutions you offer to prevent aids all over the world. People will do what people want to do, and they'll keep doing it as long as it profits them. Capiche?
Anywayz, do you guys think that Adam and Eve are in Hell? Like i was thinking about it, those two baggars better be in hell. Because it would be serious serious fuckerey if the two main people who put all of us in this mess end up being in heaven.. Water go get serious enemy that day, if I end up in hell and I ask for adam and eve and devil tells me that they are in heaven chilling with the almighty. Me to I will ask for amnesty o. Please can yall let me know if you think that those two are in hell? What does your gut tell you about where they are? I have a sneaking suspicion that there are in heaven, and it would be a serious serious shame if God let that be so lol.
Yall should check out this joke I got lol. It's hella funny.
I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said, "Stop! Don't do it!" "Why shouldn't I?" he said. I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!" He said, "Like what?" I said, "Well, are you religious or atheist?" He said, "Religious." I said, "Me too! Are your Christian or Buddhist?" He said, "Christian." I said, "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?" He said, "Protestant." I said, Me too! Are your Episcopalian or Baptist? He said, "Baptist!" I said, "Wow! Me too! Are your Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord? He said, Baptist Church of God!" I said, "Me too! Are your Original Baptist Church of God or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?" He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God!" I said, "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?" He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915!" I said, "Die, heretic scum!" and pushed him off.
