The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010

Life Itself IS Poetry!

Life Itself IS Poetry!

Poets are just puppets for the muses
Parrots whom inspiration confuses

Their admirers? Mute and deaf.
A surface bubbles but from its depth!

Oh blind watchmaker — grand architect
Both male and female without defect:

Your voice resounds through either Astro or Astral realms
Anyone attuned feels that divine tremor, which overwhelms

Your body is the Being of us but minor cells
As well as cosmic conflagrations and galactic swells

Any writer falters; every prophet fails
To describe your aspects within countless tales

From out of Multiverse comes an infinity of verses
Atoms forming organisms that our planet nurses

Yet sophistic thinking fosters oversight
Despite beautiful dancing umbrae obscure light

Though if perception's doors were cleansed
Eternity would we witness thence

Beyond space, outside of time
Note these stanzas always rhyme . . .

Image: Maha-Vishnu dreams in the causal ocean (Multiverse), as he exhales each pore breathes out a universe and when he inhales they are all annihilated.

Atheism: The Lesser of Two Evils?

Atheism: The Lesser of Two Evils?

Atheism is little more than an opposite and equal reaction to Theism
In other words: its Antithesis.
Yet a dialectic should exist wherein these polar extremes may be reconciled.
Even if not, let us examine a couple of points of contention between them . . .

For one thing most Atheists claim to rely on Science for insight into Reality.

However, it's often clear from their rhetoric that they haven't kept pace with recent developments.

Few seem to be aware that the founding fathers of Quantum Physics wrote some rather mystical essays.

Albert Einstein, Max Planck, Werner Heisenberg and Erwin Schroedinger were NOT Atheistic
Just as Science isn't a static institution that has already answered our deepest questions.

Contrary to what many positivists / materialists believe much is still hotly debated within academic circles.

Furthermore, Consciousness Studies are newer fields of growing interest that keep yielding significant findings.

Skeptics ignore groundbreaking research from mavericks such as David Bohm, Dean Radin, James H. Austin, and Rick Strassman.

In short, Atheists quote scientific 'scripture' only where it's convenient like creationists do.

Second, a common accusation Atheists level against Religion is that it's responsible for centuries of bloodshed.

This is definitely true and (pardon the expression) heaven forbid any resurgence of fundamentalist fervour.

Nonetheless, this is also an instance of the teapot calling the kettle black.

Indeed the idea that reason and scientific progress can solve all our problems has been proven wrong.

Actually, it proved wrong following the Industrial Revolution, which brought us World War I & II.

To be sure, Science has remained subservient to global militarism since then.

In Academia they refer to this as the Failure of The Enlightenment, which gave rise to Post-Modernism.

For you see - Science without a functional Ethical framework derived from Philosophy is devoid of compassion.

Again proponents of Atheism gloss over these facts as Catholic Apologists do for the Spanish Inquisition.

Why? Simply because Atheism is as much a belief, a delusion and a dead end as are Theistic Religions.

Human Beings need to outgrow their need to take sides in dualistic dichotomies.
Neither side is ever wholly right!
But if we take the extant spectrum of evidence into consideration other options become clear.
Future Humans will attain such balance whether we manage it or not - so at least try to transcend!
