The vestigial brain

Ok , im not a psychologist but its increasingly apparent that certain statements which would make absolutely no sense to a sentient adult brain at full maturity if presented in an objective manner, makes perfect sense to a mind moulded by convictions of the previous generations and wide sections of the current population (tradition and culture , notice the two dangerous words exceedingly romanticised at great dangers to the society). I shall therefore try to rephrase some of them here, in an attempt to bring in some objectivity. Some of this has been much better done by great minds of the past and I shall borrow from them, cos I am sure I can no better.


There's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! - George Carlin
If I might add - Mister invisible man has a morbid obsession with one of the life processes of one of the millions of mammals on this tiny planet. He doesnt like it when homo sapiens attempt to reproduce before they walk around a fire in front of a large audience or exchange flattened rings of metal in front of a comically dressed man. Now that pisses him off real bad and he promptly sends the invisible steamy substance in these mammals (which he calls a soul) to hell , and watches them burn there. Or maybe he'll make sure the mammals are born as slugs next time.

If I'm born in a piece of land within imaginary boundaries , then that piece of land is superior to all others. I shall die for that imaginary boundary and I'll get goosebumps when people talk about men dying for protecting my imaginarily bounded piece of land. Instead of sighing at the ultimate foolishness of war, Ill feel glorious

(mistake not , its very important to defend ourselves and those who did defend us are great martyrs. We jus need to go beyond blind patriotism and see the root cause of all war , greed and misunderstanding. Instead of jus glorifying martyrs, shouldnt we work towards eliminating their need)
The possession of testicles has great bearing on whether acts by a human are acceptable or not. If you don't have testicles , the old invisible man probably wouldn't approve of you consuming ethanol. Oh yeah , he has an eye for these details . Especially with our species. Doesn't seem too very concerned about what the other life forms are doing , after all we are the ones burning holes through his well crafted ozone layer. So we should be blamed for some stuff, true true...
At a certain time in your twenties , you are obliged to perform a funny ceremony with someone from the opposite sex with a hell lot of distant relatives who u'll never recognize watching. Its important for the female to have a large mass of Au (gold) displayed on her self during this weird ceremony. Both the male and female shall not have fun or choose to customize any part of this ceremony. Invisible father above is still watching. It would be highly desirable if the male and female don't decide to choose each other , cos after this ceremony they are obliged to copulate , populate and coinhabit for the rest of their lives.
This insane list could go on forever. Im tired though now .. think i'll go sleep :P
