Out of the Blue

I slipped on the stairs and hurt myself yesterday, breaking from the cliché by suffering my injury while going up the stairs, rather than down. In saving myself from falling, I managed to stub my big toe very nicely, causing me to consider the surprising number of years it's been since I've suffered one of these surprisingly painful owies. This surprise continued on into the night, as the intense pain and inability to put weight on it left me fairly convinced that I had suffered my first-ever broken bone. The pain has abated this morning to the point where I'm not as certain of this expert diagnosis, so I'll see how it progresses today. Fingers crossed that I don't decide I need an X-ray.

I understand that most people can't cope with the reality that were are ultimately alone in the universe. They need religion the way a drowning man needs a lifejacket. That most of them would either give up and live in complete despair or go mad. Most people live in such shitty circumstances around the world they need the narcotic effect of religion. However, religion is all the major set of chains that has kept mankind enslaved to its own misery. Willing to forgo demanding equality and a better life here and now they trade it in for some mythical eternal paradise later. In other words, they're suckers.

Are their other forms of life in the universe? Obviously? Higher orders of life? Certainly? An all powerful, all knowing, all seeing deity? Doubtful. And even if there were it wouldn't be anymore interested in us than we are with the germs on a countertop. Does something happen when we die? I believe so. Nothing like any of the religions would have you believe, but something. I've always found it amazing that all the atoms in your body are replaced several times over throughout your life yet the essence of you remains. Trip balls.
