Just reading about the Pope just drives me nuts. Just reading about Islam drives me nuts. Just reading about some cult that is "sacrificing all twelve members, women and children" to be with God drives me nuts.
Christ, give me aliens instead. Give me Scientology. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE THAT THEY CAN'T ACCEPT THAT THEY'RE BORN ALONE AND WILL DIE ALONE?
There will be no virgins. No harps. No Holy Trinity. NO SALVATION AND REDEMPTION. You will DIE and BE NO MORE. There will be no soul, no resurrection, no rebirth in another form as a bird or a fly, YOU WILL JUST DIE.
What is it about this equation that people don't understand? It's really starting to bug me, in my old age.
Do I really think my father's up there in the sky, drinking martinis and smoking his cigarettes and jamming with my dead brother and dead uncle and dead nephew?
WELL, NO. It's a NICE THOUGHT and it entertains me but I really know that they are JUST DEAD and have been reabsorbed into the universe with their atoms and will never feel anything again, just like before I was born.
THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.
There is no God, there is no heaven and if there's a Hell, how do I make a reservation? That'll be Infinity, please, on the lowest floor you have. Champagne and hookers every night, if you please. Just no fucking Popes and Islamists.
