Movie Madness June 2017

movie_header

 I watched most of the following movies during night shifts at my place of employ. I enjoy the fact I can watch movies while I’m at work it makes work less like work and more like being at home. Some of the folks I work with, day time staff, are under the impression that during my night shifts I get my head down and go to sleep, they don’t believe that I can happily spend an entire night watching movie after movie after movie and never get bored or tired. I’m a geek/nerd I’m never bored and very rarely feel tired.

You can’t tell people though, have you ever noticed that? Once people make the decision to believe a certain thing is fact it’s impossible, almost, to prove them wrong. People just have to have their own way and view reality through their own, sometimes narrow blinkered, eyes. I’ve given up trying to tell people, ‘I stay awake throughout the entirety of my shift watching movies, mostly horror movies from my personal collection. I have over 700, and I’m always buying more, I always have something to keep my mind occupied’.

Some people can’t see that we’re not all the same, we don’t think or behave the same. Some of us wish to be as individual as is humanly possible and not join in the sheep like herd. I enjoy watching three, sometimes four, movies during a night shift, and if I could persuade my boss to relegate me to permanent nights I’d be extremely happy, so happy I’d dance.

I never dance.

I’m starting to run out of movies to buy there aren’t enough movies out there in movie land that I can happily waste a few hours enjoying. I prefer horror movies, or action movies featuring monsters as the antagonist. I’m a sucker for monster movies and I hate when they turn out bad.

Anyways, here’s my list:

1 Wolf Guy: A movie I’d never seen before and one that I had read good things about, one reviewer claiming it was like Wolverine comic book stories when the character is in Madripoor pretending to be a character named Patch. It wasn’t, instead it’s really poor.

2 Matrix Revolutions: I enjoyed, once again, Revolutions.

3 House: I hadn’t seen this movie since the Eighties, now it’s not necessarily bad but it is a mess.

4 Surrogates: Shit!

5 Resident Evil: Not a good movie but it killed some time.

6 Resident Evil: Apocalypse: Again not good.

7 Resident Evil: Extinction: Still not good.

8 Resident Evil: Afterlife: Not getting any better.

9 Resident Evil: Retribution: Pushing in to terrible territory.

10 Resident Evil: The Final Chapter: Terrible. The movie series had potential. The first movie could have been a tight action horror movie about a squad of elite assholes, think those guys from Predator, having to fight their way out of a locked down facility full of zombies. The sequels could have focussed on the super powered Alice and been superhero versus the zombie apocalypse, but no, instead they’re just shit.

11 Hard To Kill: Awful, truly awful.

12 Out For Justice: Bad but not as bad as Hard To Kill.

13 Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang: Fun.

14 The Long Kiss Goodnight: More fun.

15 The Warriors: Classic.

16 Zulu: Entertaining and educational.

17 Planet of the Apes: The Charlton Heston original. Fantastic movie, get your stinkin’ paws off my guns you damn dirty liberal leftie assholes.

18 Jurassic World: My favourite of the Jurassic movies. I thought I’d hate it I did not.

19 War On Everyone: Pathetic.

20 Fast and Furious 7: Drive Furiouser: I’m no fan of this movie franchise. In my opinion the stories are poor, the characters weak and the acting dreadful but I do like, in the more recent additions to the series, the fact these characters have super powers. They can make their cars defy gravity and smash each other through walls with their super strength and nigh invulnerability. The fight sequences, over the top, make the Marvel and DC movies look pedestrian. In this movie Vin Diesel’s forgettable character stamps his foot during a fight with The Stath, the stamp of the foot causes the weakened floor of a car park to collapse sending The Stath plummeting to the ground far below, that stamp requires super power and The Stath’s ability to survive the fall, with huge broken blocks of concrete falling all round him, means his character had super tough skin and a healing factor.

21 The Man From Nowhere: Excellent South Korean badassery.

22 Sword Master: Kind of a remake of Death Duel but nowhere near as good.

23 Call of Heroes: Enjoyable.

24 Push: I like the way super powers in Push don’t make a person special, there’s no tights and underwear, capes blowing in the breeze. Instead people with super powers live grungy filthy mostly criminal lives.

25 Evil Dead: The remake of the original. I hated it at the cinema didn’t mind it on blu-ray.

26 City of the Living Dead: I thought this movie was going to be gloriously gory in a mucky kind of way I was left bitterly disappointed.

27 The Beyond: See above.

28 Children of Men: This is the way I want our world to go. No more kids. End of the human world. FUCK YEAH!

29 Omega Man: I often wish I was Omega Man in a Los Angeles devoid of people.

30 Shoot ‘Em Up: Daft, but enjoyable daft.

31 Hot Tub Time Machine: If I can’t have the apocalypse can I please have going back in time and waking up in my teenage boy body? Thank you.

32 A Million Ways To Die In The West: I’m no fan of Family Guy but I really enjoyed this and I’m looking forward to The Orville.

33 Predator: What a fantastic movie.

34 Predator 2: What a good movie.

35 Predators: What a silly piece of crap, but an enjoyable piece of crap.

The Robots’ Rebellion Part 5

The Robots' Rebllion

Chapter five is titled Hell On Earth and concerns the creation of the Bible.

The show begins with Emperor Constantine I also known as Constantine the Great, have you ever noticed that all the so called greats were also great at being dicks to just about everyone they ever met? Raping, pillaging and murdering their way through the space/time continuum what a bunch of bastards, the word great should be replaced with a more accurate word description and I offer as an alternative the word cunt.

Yeah, so Constantine the Cunt became Emperor of Rome way back in 306 C.E. (Common Era) as Emperor he became tolerant of the Cult of Christ and eventually Christianity became THE religion of Rome and it still is over seventeen hundred years later, now that’s some awesome staying power, as an Atheist I’m not impressed with religious ideologies but I am impressed with the influence religions still have over people in the here and now, it just goes to show no matter how big we get for our boots, no matter how better we believe we are than people who came before us there’s still religious belief, the belief in supernatural powers and fairy tales to bring us crashing back down to Earth and assure us we are still the same and we ain’t anything special even though those self same religions billions of people blindly follow present a narrative that indeed we are.

Icke in this chapter points out a massive conceit, Christians claimed persecution before their rise to power but since gaining power over Man Christians have broke their backs persecuting as many people as they can, Christian and non-Christian alike, and though the numbers of dead Christians have killed in the name of their God is in the hundreds of millions all that murder hasn’t prevented us humans from breeding like rabbits.

We are everywhere.

A virus with shoes.

A character named Jerome becomes prominent within the pages of this chapter. Jerome was a priest, a historian and theologian and it was he who was mostly responsible for translating the Old and New Testament into Latin and choosing which books went into the Word of God, Icke claims Jerome re-wrote a lot of the stories he was translating and that the Bible is in actuality a fiction created by this enigmatic historical figure. For heathens like myself this chapter provides a wealth of information revealing an ancient conspiracy to control the stupid masses by manipulating them into believing a magic man, or men, who lives in the sky is as real as you or me. The entire concept of God, and Jesus, strikes me as bonkers I just can’t let myself believe that somewhere out there in the vast creation that is our reality there are men, and perhaps women, who have super human abilities don’t get me wrong I wish such people did exist but I can’t believe in them.

I don’t know how, or why, Christianity was able to dominate Europe for so long and I don’t know if the world would have been better off without Christianity, you would think a common belief would have bound people together but Christianity instead drove people apart Europe was torn asunder by religious wars between Roman Catholic Christians and Protestant Christians, two groups same God they just had different ideas of how to worship the Christ figure, they didn’t argue over whether Christ existed or not they firmly believe he did they argued over who worshipped Him the best and who worshipped Him properly.

A difference of opinion is an odd thing to fight and kill for but then Christians are odd, in my opinion. Rather than imprison yourself to a faith created by men instead be free to be who you are and who you want to be. Religious people don’t understand that kind of freedom, to just be yourself and not interfere or sit judgement on other people’s lives but as an Atheist who believes in nothing I can honestly claim that level of freedom is sweet.

What other people do is none of my business, I don’t get involved, my knickers don’t get in a twist. Oh no gay people everywhere, demanding marriage, meh! I don’t care let ’em get married. Oh sweet Hell! Pregnant women want an abortion, and? If that’s what they want why the Hell not? None of my concern. Bloody bugger! Muslims and Jews living on the same street as me, hmm, how wonderful better than being surrounded day in day out by pasty white faced Casper like Christians, more diversity please not less. Some pesky Atheists, Richard Dawkins for example, present compelling arguments for why a supernatural Jesus doesn’t exist, and have facts to back up their heathen claims, ace I embrace fact based evidence with a smile upon my face and joy in my heart completely untroubled, anger and hate non-existent, happy with a laugh ready to erupt from deep within my peaceful self.

Yeah, Christians should be the nicest most decent people on the planet, to ever have existed, but the reality is Christians start and fight wars, Christians murder and rape, Christians fuck kids, Christians aren’t any better than anyone else they’re just as fucking sick but they’re also massive hypocrites.

Better to believe in nothing, to find joy in simple pleasures, and to be free to think whatever you want to think and be who you want to be.

 

Preacher Two Point Two

Preacher 1

Whoa! Episode 2 followed fast on the opening episodes trail. I’m finding it difficult, once again, to stay on top of everything in my increasingly geeky little idiot life.

Jesse in an attempt to stop the Saint of Killers, a being immune to his semi-divine super power, gets a whole bunch of fuck nut gun maniacs killed. Here in  merry olde England, a place that is indeed very olde and so merry folk die laughing, we don’t have access to firearms, ALL guns are banned from the general populace, or as far as I know, ALL guns are banned. I’ve always found myself annoyed by my home nations gun laws, I want guns Goddamn it, a room full of ‘em, but at the same time I’m glad successive British governments have kept guns out of the grubby hands of this lands citizens, we’re mad and blood crazed at the best of times give us guns and I’d have been killed a decade, or more, ago.

Shot down in a blaze of anything but glory.

Now if you’ve read the comic books then you’re already aware that the Saint of Killers is a merciless badass mother, and father, fucker. He’s an unstoppable killing machine, though not an actual mechanical machine he’s some kind of supernatural beast that can, and will, kill every living thing in the universe to see that kind of badass murderous bastard in a live action TV series is really something to behold, I can tell thee, I could watch a series where the Saint of Killers, uttering barely a word, just kills his way across America and then the rest of the world, it’d be a grand idea to have someone make such a show.

This episode is yet another great episode this is one hell of a show it combines a fine mix of comedy and action drama to produce a lot of fun entertainment. I find the quest to find God a compelling one, even though I’m an Atheist I can appreciate fictional characters trying to find another fictional character and as they travel across a land they leave behind them a slaughterhouse full of death.

Most shows have, I find, too many characters and the jump between a variety of narratives can damn the show better, in my opinion, to keep the cast of characters light to provide a tight TV show that when it moves slow it does so to build and when it moves at pace it does so at a speed that causes a viewer/fan to gasp and catch their breath.

Preacher 2

Preacher Two Point One

vlcsnap-2017-06-26-06h49m49s178

Preacher season two begins with a discussion about circumcision and what happens to all those itty bitty foreskins. Not something I’ve ever thought about, and circumcision here in the U.K. isn’t a thing, as far as I’m aware most of us chaps still have our foreskins just flapping about down there between our legs.

Fortunately the foreskin discussion doesn’t last too long within mere moments the terrible trio of Jesse Custer, Tulip O’Hare and Cassidy are trying to out run a police car while singing along to Come On Eileen on the radio.

Unfortunately, after a very cool Seventies movie style police chase, our car full of idiots, whoops I meant heroes, weird that idiots and heroes kinda means the same thing, right? Anyways, our heroes are caught by the five-oh and Jesse is forced to hit the misbegotten lawmen with the Word of God, or Genesis, he takes much fun in making the poor men of law do unspeakable things to one another, like holding hands and causing some serious damage to a lawman’s gonads.

Jesse Custer seems to be enjoying his supernatural, and part divine, power having a bit of fun with what he can do and it’s a great super power, imagine being able to make people do whatever you tell them, what fun a person could have, you could be a terror to the assholes and shitbirds we all meet, and have to suffer, in life. I’d make those sorts of people shit their pants at every opportunity, just because it would be funny and very embarrassing for the asshole.

This first episode of a new season doesn’t let a fan, or random viewer, settle for a second first it’s all fun, fun, fun, and being cool and then BOOM! We get hit with ultra-fucking-violence, heads exploding, limbs being shot off, blood and guts, all the kinds of things I love about fiction, such things suck in real life but in the unreal they’re super cool.

vlcsnap-2017-06-26-07h45m48s233

Oh, and yep, the Saint of Killers is on the loose and he’s permanently pissed off, which must be depressing.

There is a fuck scene, it’s no hardcore full penetration job, this is TV after all, but I still didn’t like it, fake violence I LOVE fake fucking I don’t and here’s my reason why, fucking is, or should, be a very personal experience between the people who are doing the fucking, it shouldn’t be something other people watch as entertainment, violence as entertainment I’m down with, it’s fun, fucking should have stayed very personal making it a public spectacle just made lots of people really weird.

Less fake fucking more fake violence. Please.

This first in a new episode is gloriously over the top and ends with, for Steve, a tribute to the late, and great, Steve Dillon co-creator of Preacher.

Armed Forces Day

Armed-Forces-Day-photo

I don’t get it, and okay there are a lot of things I don’t get, to list them would make for a lengthy post, so I’ll stick to the hero worship, the adoration, of the military. I think perhaps my problem with Armed Forces Day stems from my lack of pride in my home nation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, I feel nothing for the land of my birth, absolutely nothing, it’s just the place I was lucky enough to have been born, I don’t owe it anything, I didn’t ask to be born, as far as I know. I didn’t ask to be born British, and as far as I’m aware Britain hasn’t done anything to deserve my respect or pride.

Now because I’m an anti-patriot doesn’t mean I go around kicking British babies and beating British elders or spitting and urinating in public places or littering, in fact I’m opposed to littering it’s a fucking shame so many patriotic Brits don’t share my shame, the nation looks like a fucking rubbish tip, really gets my back up.

But I digress.

Why do people feel the need to support the Armed Forces?

I just don’t understand. I’m not suggesting people should disrespect people in the Armed Forces, that wouldn’t make any sense to me either, I neither like or dislike people who have served in the Armed Forces I will admit I haven’t supported Britain in any of its recent, 21st century, military endeavours. Killing dirt poor people in Third World nations doesn’t sit well with me and I certainly wouldn’t encourage anyone to go join the military just so they can be trained to kill folk.

Why would any sane person want to kill another person?

We don’t celebrate our emergency services. We don’t celebrate the people who govern, some of us fucking hate ’em instead. We don’t celebrate people in the banking system for maintaining a stable, if you can call it that, economy, in fact we hate that they’re wealthier than us. We don’t celebrate all the people that work hard to put food on our table.

But we celebrate the Armed Forces.

What exactly do they do to demand such celebration and worship?

War what is it good for? Absolutely nothing. Well except wealthy individuals become wealthier and greedy corporations feed that greed, for a while.

Maybe someone is aware of why people celebrate the Armed Forces, maybe someone as a cogent argument why we should hero worship people who serve in the military and no the claim that they fight, kill and die for us isn’t a valid argument they fight, kill and die on the orders of a very small minority who have something to gain from their sacrifices but the rest of us gain nothing.

And it’s just a job some people decide to do, sure they make noble claims about wishing to serve their country but there must be a better way to serve than being taught how to kill and then going out and killing people in other lands, people who are innocent, poor and already victimised by the militaries of their own nations.

 

The Robots’ Rebellion Part 4

The Robots' Rebllion

Chapter 4 is titled Bible Stories.

Now I’m no religious person I’m a proud, and amazingly happy, Atheist, I don’t need the supernatural, or magic, in my life to make it feel worth living I’m perfectly happy with grim reality with its honesty and lack of hope.

Icke’s chapter begins with the Biblical character Abraham the man who is highly regarded by Jews, Christians and Muslims indeed their religions are known as the Abrahamic religions. What I want to know is this: did Abraham actually exist?

According to the experts, people way smarter than me, and possibly you, Abraham is a fictional creation that’s probably obvious to other Atheists as the Abraham of Genesis interacts with Yahweh, who of course is a fictional magic man, like all gods and goddesses, demons and angels. Our, well my, world isn’t one brimming full of supernatural entities and incidents. It just isn’t. I know it would be nice if we lived in a supernatural world full of gods and monsters but we don’t, or at least the world I experience doesn’t.

Icke makes the claim that the fictional Abraham introduced circumcision to the Hebrew people, his vast army of slaves, to differentiate his people from other people living in the same geographical region, people who Icke claims worshipped the Sumerian god Enlil, who eventually became El and then Allah of Islam. I always thought Allah was Yahweh, but I could be wrong, what would I, an evil Atheist, know about religion?

Allah, as far as I’ve been able to make out, is the Arabic word for God, so the Muslim god is the same as the Christian and Jew, makes this Atheist wonder why they all hate each other so much when they’ve got so much in common. Religious folk there ain’t no understanding them.

Abraham’s story then becomes Joseph’s, the guy with the multi-coloured raincoat, Joseph like Abraham before him cannot be proven to have actually existed, there ain’t no evidence and without evidence a thing just ain’t, right? Makes sense to me. The theory goes that Joseph’s story was a late edition to the Bible and maybe the first story of literary rather than oral origin.

Icke also goes on to claim that when Joseph, a fictional character was sold in to fictional slavery it was the Hyksos, Shepherd Kings, that dominated Egypt. These Shepherd Kings are believed to have been Semites, or Arabs, they at some point in time became the dominant force in Egypt and worshipped their own god Baal. The interesting thing about the Hyksos, for me, is that they may have been the rulers of Egypt during the entire Exodus story presented in the Bible so rather than vast amounts of Hebrew slaves fleeing from the Egyptians the Exodus may have been the expulsion of a tribe that had once ruled Egypt. Icke seems to think the same way which leads of course to the story of Moses, a character Icke deems real who fled into the desert and had an alien encounter with a being he, Moses, believed was God, or El, the Lord.

But did Moses exist? Or was he, like Joseph and Abraham before him, merely fictional?

It is believed that the Biblical Moses was merely a legendary figure, a fictional character, his story based on a far earlier story of Sumerian origin the story of Sargon the Great. The reason behind this belief is because there is no Egyptian evidence, written or archaeological, to prove that Moses did exist and as such an important figure during the mighty and powerful Egyptian empire one would think mention of such a person would indeed exist.

From Moses we, the reader, eventually arrive at the Biblical character David who defeated his enemies and created the Israelite Empire, though experts agree David might have been a real person he certainly wasn’t the man represented in the Bible at best he was a mere chieftain or clan leader and his entire myth is mere wishful thinking.

David was of course, according to the Bible, the father of Solomon, an altogether more renown character in this ancient mystery/conspiracy mythology. According to Icke it was during the reign of Solomon, indeed because of his reign, that the Masons, Freemasons, became such a dynamic driving force in human history, it was these stonemasons with their weird secret rituals and superhuman powers that built Solomon’s Temple and it was during the reign of Solomon that Egyptian and Phoenician rituals were absorbed by the Israelites thus corrupting further their beliefs, ideas and Biblical stories.

Solomon however may not have existed, certainly not in the way the Bible portrays him as the king of a vast empire, there are no historical records of the time that refer to Solomon and all the archaeological evidence shows that in the region Solomon, and David before him, was supposed to rule only a few hundred people lived their lives and then died. The area of the time of Solomon was a mere town, a tiny little nothing of a place in the desert. Once again the Bible stories, when compared to the available evidence, are merely wishful thinking and thus fictions.

After more pages of Icke musing over what may, or may not, be fictions we finally arrive at the Messiah, our Lord Jesus Christ, well not my Lord because I’m a happy Atheist but maybe your Lord if you’re a believer.

The one thing we know for sure about Jesus Christ is that his name would not have been Jesus Christ, heh, that fact always amuses me. Experts, historians, agree that Jesus Christ was a real person and a religious leader but he didn’t possess superhuman powers and he wasn’t born of supernatural origins, now I’m no expert but I don’t believe there is enough evidence to prove the existence of Jesus, and for me the character is indeed a supernatural being by ignoring this fact and trying to find some way of creating a non-supernatural character the experts, historians, are totally ignoring the entire Jesus myth. How convenient for them and their continued employment.

Even though these experts, historians, accept the fact that some evidence of Jesus’ existence as a non-supernatural being is questionable they reject the notion that all the evidence is, they’ll accept parts of Josephus’ history but not all, picking and choosing what sits well with their own agreed upon collective views.

These same experts, historians, do agree that the Gospels stories of Jesus Christ are of course non-historical and they’re happy to reject them as evidence the character existed instead they try and build their own mythology by relying on Josephus, who they find unreliable, and Tacitus a historian who also wrote passages in his histories referring to the mythical character Hercules. Hmm, right?

In fact when one researches the historical evidence for Jesus Christ one discovers that even the experts, historians, can’t agree what is truth and what is fiction and yet they all claim this character did exist, the only two stories they do agree on are Jesus’ baptism and his crucifixion but everything else is argued about.

As an Atheist, and no expert in these matters, upon reading the evidence for the existence of Jesus Christ as a non-supernatural being I find that it’s all a load of old horseshit and that the experts, historians, stink of it. Hey, that’s my personal opinion I care not if you agree or disagree.

Icke of course paints Jesus as a supernatural being possessed of superhuman qualities due to his out of this world origin, like all the stories relating to the Christ figure it sounds to me like poppycock mouthed by nincompoops. Icke does, briefly, delve into the Pauline Christian conspiracy making claim that the Christ story is derived from older stories about Dionysus and Mithra and Sol Invictus and Osiris and Horus and Krishna and that the Christianity, in all its versions, we know today is merely pagan belief.

Again I’m no expert but yeah the above makes a lot of sense.

This chapter, if you’re a believer in ancient astronauts, religious belief, conspiracy theories, is really interesting and certainly gave me pause for thought, which is what a book should do, make us think.

I do apologise for any grammatical errors in this, fairly, hefty post my only excuse is I type fast and I don’t edit.

The Robots’ Rebellion Part 3

The Robots' Rebllion

Chapter 3 is titled A Brotherhood of Clans.

This chapter begins with Egypt, Ancient Egypt land of intrigue and mystery but the chapter doesn’t concentrate on Egypt it throws a vast amount of information at a reader and is finally a chapter I found enjoyable. Along with Ancient Egypt we’re offered the idea of an ancient Brotherhood that has manipulated humanity for thousands of years, and touches upon some real historical stuff Ancient Greece, the Romans, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Confucius and Buddha, a lot of pre-Christian religious stuff.

Icke makes claim that the heretical pharaoh Akhenaten was a puppet of a secret society, the Brotherhood, which retained some kind of power once Egypt returned to a land of polytheism upon the death of Akhenaten. This ancient Brotherhood still exists today, according to Icke, in the form of the Freemasons an alleged sinister group that allegedly controls the destiny and fortune of the entire human race.

Kind of like the Stonecutters from the American cartoon series The Simpsons.

‘Who controls the British crown?

Who keeps the metric system down?

We do, we do

Who keeps Atlantis off the maps?

Who keeps the Martians under wraps?

We do, we do

Who holds back the electric car?

Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star?

We do, we do

Who robs cavefish of their sight?

Who rigs every Oscar night?

We do, we do!’

 

The Robots’ Rebellion Part 2

The Robots' Rebllion

Chapter 2 is titled Collective Amnesia.

It begins with more waffle about Atlantis and about the Luciferic Consciousness that came to infect planet Earth in times so ancient it’s hard for us, simple humans, to comprehend the timeframe involved. It’s all bollocks of course.

For example:

The Universe needs the life the Earth brings forth and the whole must be preserved. It is not for you alone that we do this work. There has always been an order in the way the planets have been governed. Man has not understood the linkages that bind everything together.’

Channelled information Icke claims to have received from an alien intelligence, it’s all very egotistical not only David Icke being one of the few people on Earth, out of over six billion, to be made aware of who we really are, not only does it stink of ego to believe alien intelligences are speaking to you, or through you, but it’s massively egotistical to believe, and promote, the idea that the human race is in someway THE most special little creature in all creation and that the very existence of planet Earth is hugely beneficial to the continued health and wellbeing of the universe.

A similar theme pervades a lot of the fiction I enjoy reading especially stories from both DC and Marvel comics, Marvel comics often has the Earth at the centre of events of cosmic significance.

I can’t accept that we humans are in anyway special, the evidence leads me to believe the contrary, we are as a species a selfish, vain, mean, nasty, greedy, violent, murderous animal that will kill, with made up justification, every living thing upon the planet including each other and ourselves. If anything we’re the least interesting and least special little creature in the entire vastness of the universe, a universe so vast that no one, or all of us collectively, can comprehend or understand.

Eventually Icke’s ideas about energies and frequencies important to the continued existence of the cosmos emanating from the Earth leads him further into the wonderful world of ancient astronauts, by the gods I love those guys.

Naturally whenever expressing ideas about ancient astronauts writers always use passages from The Bible, for me The Bible is a series of writings written specifically for people who no longer exist and haven’t for thousands of years the stories within the pages of the collective we know as The Bible were aimed at a people in one very small geographical region of this mad wild planet the stories weren’t meant for a wider audience and perhaps that’s why I rejected them, many years ago, I’m not of the Hebrew tribe and I wasn’t born three, or four, thousand years ago I’m a child of the 20th century and I live in the 21st century Hebrew stories meant for a people who no longer exist bear no relevance to the times I’m experiencing of any of the experiences I randomly have, some by accident and some on purpose. There are no stories of ancient astronauts in The Bible because not one character in The Bible, fictional or real, ever encountered ancient astronauts.

It’s a shame ancient astronauts don’t exist, it would indeed be a wonder if they did, life changing, we do have to face the facts that it’s easy, far too easy, to take a story, real or fictitious, and bend and shape it to fit our own beliefs. People use stories in The Bible, and sometimes mere paragraphs and sentences, to express negative views towards homosexuals failing to realise that The Bible was never meant for them, it was never expected to still be making such a huge impact on people in the 21st century and the fact it still does is a sad reflection on how moronic most humans really are.

Sheeple not people.

Morons not rational thinking imaginative individuals.

Chapter two touches, briefly, on the influence of the ancient Sumerians, Earth’s first civilisation, maybe, the fact remains we know very little about ancient Sumer and some of what we do know, or what Icke eludes to in his book, is a misunderstanding of an ancient peoples beliefs and lifestyle choices. We can’t use Sumer as an example of a culture that was visited by ancient astronauts because there’s no evidence aliens, humanoid aliens, visited Sumer and with very few scholars able to translate the Sumerian written language we’re not exactly sure what the Sumerians believed or experienced. I do, at times like this, wish writers didn’t bend facts to shape their own beliefs and I totally wish writers didn’t have their own agendas instead of trying to fool the gullible into believing any old nonsense writers like David Icke should be presenting evidence based alternative points of view instead of relying on alleged messages from alien intelligences.

After two chapters of bollocks I’m finding The Robots’ Rebellion tough going.

Boo me!

The Robots’ Rebellion Part 1

The Robots' Rebllion

And so begins my long, and somewhat joyful, reading and blogging about the wonderful books of Mr David Icke. The Robots’ Rebellion begins with a chapter titled The Takeover Bid under a part one section of the book titled The Darkness.

Now I’m no sycophant I don’t believe everything people tell me or everything I read I only believe in things I can accept, stuff that somehow makes sense to me and my experiences in this mad crazy world we assume is real.

Much of chapter one of this book is taken up with spiritual musings and the assumption psychics are making accurate claims about the nature of the universe and the formation of planet Earth.

Personally I don’t believe in psychic powers, I’d like to live in a world in which super powers were a reality but I don’t, I’d like to have super powers of my own Superman style super powers but I wouldn’t be a decent nice guy trying to save everyone and the world instead I’d make everyone, everywhere, fucking behave, but besides my obsession with accidentally Marvel style acquiring super powers there’s no way I’m ever going to have super powers and neither are you.

This first chapter was hard re-reading for me and I confess I skipped by parts of it, Atlantis, blah, King Arthur, meh.

The only real part of the chapter I was concerned with was the opening paragraph, ‘who created God?’ I’m an Atheist by nature for me God, Jesus, Heaven and Hell are merely fictions a method used to keep people under control but even though I am an Atheist with no spiritual beliefs or leanings whatsoever I do wish to know the origin of God.

I figure the fictional creation is an amalgamation of Egyptian and Babylonian beliefs and perhaps a little bit here and a little bit there stolen from other Middle Eastern cultures lost to us in time.

For blind believers in the existence of fictional beings roaming this vast universe God is the ultimate in power and majesty, according to believers God is omniscient, which means He has infinite knowledge, basically He knows everything about everything, the cleverest being in the entire universe, way smarter than me and thee and even smarter than Einstein and Newton. Clever isn’t something I’d attribute to any religious belief in God, for the smartest being in all the universe His worshippers sure are fucking stupid. He needs smarter people to believe in Him, I’m not smart, I’m an idiot but even I find other idiots fucking annoying and I’ve always assumed smart people find idiots unbearable God is the smartest being in all the universe He’d despise idiots.

So He’d hate, with passion, all His believers.

God is also supposed to be omnipotent, all powerful, not only the smartest being in all the universe but also the most badass, He could, in theory, kill the entire universe with but a thought no one, not even Superman, can fight and defeat God only…

… in the Bible, Old Testament, the fictional character Jacob wrestles and defeats the fictional God of the Hebrews, the all mighty and all powerful Yahweh, IHVH, but if God possesses unlimited power, enough power to end the universe, how could Jacob defeat Him?

God is also supposed to be omnipresent, which means He’s everywhere at once, the entire universe is God and God is the entire universe, kinda like Eternity from Marvel comics. So He, God, would know what’s happening as it happens maybe even before it happens so nothing would be a surprise to Him and yet the behaviour of the humans he destroys in the Great Deluge takes Him by surprise.

The origin of the God of the Bible might, no one it seems knows for sure, originate in Egypt when the pharaoh Akhenaten created a monotheistic religion and usurped the long established pantheon that dominated the land, Akhenaten’s One God, a Sun God, could have been the inspiration for Yahweh, though Yahweh seems like an angry storm god rather than a hopeful sun god.

I doubt anyone will ever know for sure where or how God originated but there’s one thing that’s for damn sure He is only a fictional character created by Man and not the other way around.

This first chapter of David Icke’s conspiracy, ancient mystery, is very disappointing, it seemed to me mostly nonsense I’ve read elsewhere before, bog standard random ideas about ancient human history that’s predicated upon lies and misunderstandings I’d hoped for more, it’s no The Biggest Secret and now I’m wishing I’d started with that book and ignored the two books that preceded it.

Sigh!

British Conservatives

Sigh United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, fucking sigh!

Here in the UK we now have a British Conservative government having to rely on an Irish political party that’s not only populated by nut jobs, climate change deniers, creationists, anti-abortionists, but also by people who have in the past, and perhaps in the present, colluded with terrorists.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, has been victimised by the Conservatives, by the British media for having sympathy for terrorist groups but now my own British government is in bed, so to speak, with terrorists. Oh, the irony!

Not the least bit surprising the British press, the papers that support the Conservatives, is very quiet about the present government colluding with terrorists and terrorist sympathisers. I think that the British media, and Conservative supporters, just hope all the terrorist links are ignored, after all ignorance is bliss in the same way silence is golden, but with the hate piled onto Jeremy Corbyn due to his (fictional) links to terrorists the Conservative government shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it.

Not now.

Not ever.
