Random Thought

There isn't greater a constant than human intelligence in this Universe. From the dawn of humanity, until nowadays, it has never changed. Not a bit. Only the amount of people to divide it to has quadruplicated.

Bloody Feast

Well the inevitable came. Saddam was hanged yesterday. In the dark, like rats like to operate. I think he had it coming, you can't get away with massacring people, although the US forces seem to do it all the time. Nevertheless, if you're Arab, or any "inferior" nationality, you can't escape with even telling your opinion, let alone massacring people. Although Wahhabi seem to escape, but those are pure "moderate" Muslim Arabs. We Syrians are just apostate bastards of Timurlan. Yes, I forgot.
I am with punishment, with capital punishment. If not for anything.,but I don't find it fair to pay up to 40% of my salary just for keeping the inmates warm and cozy, with the false hope that someday they might become model citizens. I'll pass, I would happily and unconditionally give the money for helping impaired people or the elder. But, nevertheless, we are barbarian criminal human rights violators and we must provide for the best of our imprisoned criminals in the detriment of Dawn syndrome diseased children.
I am not religious, those who know me can say I'm a fundamentalist atheist. But in a fundamentalist world, an assassinated symbol, albeit a murderous one, can very easily become a martyr and fuel for even more fundamentalism. Although I found it strange to read news of Iran's joy at the hanging news, see the Shiite's joy for eventually getting their justice (1 million killed in Iran alone during the Iraq-Iran war). And then hear of the fears of "Irani fundamentalism" martyring Saddam? No, fundamentalism comes from the South, usually, from grit-sucking Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless...
Anyway, I am for capital punishment and for capital punishment of all criminals against humanity. But I am living in Syria and I don't want to suffer bombing and terrorism because of some cretin US intelligent that know about the Middle East the same amount I know about quantic physics.
It does give hope though, Saddam is gone. Now we're hopeful to see Rumsfeld. Or Bush. Even Condi would do. We're waiting.
P.S I'll insert sources later, I'm to disgusted to think right now.

Happy .......... (Insert Hollyday of Choise)

Imagine someone who's half Romanian, quarter Syrian and quarter Lebanese. Yes, I know Syrian and Lebanese genetics are absolutely the same, but we're talking nationality here. It's like calling a Pole an Ukrainian. You don't want to know what happens. The Romanian part is the easy part, to start with, as it only Greek-Catholic converted to Orthodox, and that's OK. The Lebanese part is Maronite, with serious doubts of crusader ascendancy. The Syrian part is Damascean, which does anything but simplifies the things. Damascean since more than 900 years, which makes it direct subject to Tamerlane's men, thus doesn't make it pure Damascean anymore. It means there are chances of Mongol blood. Note that the Damascean part, before being Damascean, has come from the Hijaz, and considering the functions of the predecessors, gives serious doubt of actually not being Arab at all but converted Jew.
Imagine someone who was born Muslim then baptised into Orthodoxy. One apostate. Then reconverted by force to Islam. Two apostates. Then denying any kind of religions altogether. Three apostates. Someone who's expected by Christians to feast with Christians, by Muslims to feast with Muslims, and if Hebrew descendancy is proved, to feast even with the Jews. And imagine that all three feasts happen to come in the same time. What should this person do?
He should bugger everything and keep on celebrating First of May.
Happy Everything to Everyone!

Deus Deii


Hear this
"Deus Otiosus: (Deus Absconditus) creator god that abandoned his work, retiring to the Heavens (or another sphere of existence?) thus breaking all the bonds with his creative past. Literal translation: tired god, or bored god, or resting (reclining) god. A common figure to most archaic religions, the common explanation of his abandon is either of physical nature, such as the great distance between Earth and Heavens, or by by more philosophical means such as the impossibility of communication between the two dimensions. Some intermediary forms found are the Deus Absconditus concept, or Hidden God, Deus Remotus, the Far God, Deus Incertus, the Uncertain (in the agnostic way) God."
Victor Kernbach, General Mythology

Isn't it strange how everybody orders you to show tolerance, yet nobody shows any will of tolerating you?
P.S. Remind me to tell you about the banyans.
