My guardian angel..

Weird title eh ? atleast for an atheist..
Religious people talk about their guardian angel like a divine power that saves them from harm..

The reason why I write this is because of this video someone sent me

When I was in my teens I was the same as that bullied kid, I was a sensitive poetic kid , made music wrote love songs , that was me in that time

But to bullies I was an atheist,  fat and slow and that is everything they need to make me their target, and it went on way after my school time , but no one ever laid a hand on me, it stayed with verbal abuse ..
I sometimes wondered why they never physically attacked me  , never ambushed me to beat the shit out of me ..

Once I did get attacked and beat up by a wannabe outlaw motorcycle gang.., which ended for me in a 6 day coma a broken skull and all the nasty effects of this , but I recovered .. and what was the reason ?  I called one of them a coward for hitting his girlfriend.. Yeah not very smart after all, and Someone told me that as soon as I walked around they would repeat the favor...
But this NEVER happened , even more, the stayed out of my way like I had the plague, Well I did not mind I can tell you..
After 40 years I discovered why, except for this incident with the bikers, no one ever laid a hand on me..

It was because of my guardian angel ... his name was Pieter De Vries , six-foot-four built like Hulk Hogan and atleast equally strong..
I knew him from childhood and he protected me a few times that remember but was always a distant friend as I thought that time..
I had not seen him for almost 20 years when I discovered he lives really close to me on the other side of the highway and it was a great reunion .
We had long talks about the past and then I realized that it was he, who always looked out for me , and it was he who "told" (let's leave it at that) these bikers to stay way from me ..
Instead of a distant friend he was always close by ..
He might not be supernatural not have wings, but he always was my guardian angel..

Was ?  There is no need for that anymore, now he is one of my best friends...

The leap of development of human intelligence..

Incase you are reading this on blogger my blog is a part of my personal website

I am also posting topics on the American opinion website in a topic named do you believe in god I have a remacable discussion with a man who goes by the nick tnmusicman

(if you are interested to read this, click  here to view the topic and my discussion tnmusicman.)
This man  tells me that I am forcing to defend himself, and of course he is right, that is what a discusssion is about , defending each other's opinions right ?
My answer is this: 
They have only their own indoctrinated delusions to defend
It angers me that people can believe in anything without (even carefully) asking for proof
That is the dumbest thing in existence ..
The greatest achievement of nature, intelligent sentient life is reduced to the following of an indoctrinated religious instinct.
Individuality and all curiosity is discouraged even demonized to protect this mass induced delusion..

See what science has done in 50 years, see what incredible leap forward the development of human intelligence has taken in regions not dictated by theocracy..
Without religion this could have happened a thousand , maybe even thousands of years ago, we could be colonizing our galaxy by now
But as usual religion the instinct that hold on to this belief in a god tries to keep progress down and people obedient to a non existing higher power

Look at the Islamic countries they are in the middle ages using modern technology no development of their own only using the things they need to enforce the mass delusion: propaganda and weapons.
Discussing things online can enlighten you in a way that the choice of your words gives you new insights in how things fit together .
What is the difference between humans and the other beings on earth ?
Humans are fully self aware and are not born with the natural instincts the other beings are born with..
To put it simply instinct is a set of instructions any animal is born with,  these "tell" an animal how to live, how to hunt, what it can eat and what not and most of all how to procreate..
Ofcourse Humans are also born with a set of natural instructions, but they are nothing compared to the ability to learn and to become self aware "I think therefore I AM" ..
This ability of applying logic and reason is the greatest achievement of nature and puts humanity a quantum leap ahead of anything else alive on our planet..
But what do we see that happened , in the primitive curiosity to explain sometimes frightening phenomenons like Lightning mankind invented a super being who must have done/ is doing that all, and this has grown to a new form of self induced instinct, everything has an explanation so there is no more need for curiosity and reason..
Religion has replaced instinct and stagnated the development of humanity for thousands of years..
The past 300 years this has changed gradually but the past 50 years there was an explosion of new knowledge and explanations , and see what happens ?
Religion especially in the USA does anything in it's power to stop this progression in it's tracks..
I just feel that is is the right thing to do , to inform people , to educate people about this ...
Think for yourself, be curious, LEARN , don't just believe everything you are told !
