I did not know the name of this Eddie Izzard, but I do remember his face and after today, I will remember his name as well. Great insights in the total scam that is christianity and the mockable stupidity of the people that once dared write and believe the bible, word of God. Looking right at ya, Pat Robertson.
George Carlin on the "holy shit" that is religion. Just following his logic is enough to wet my pants. "Something is wrong here: war, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, fraud and the ice capades... if this is the best God can do, I am not impressed, results like these do not belong on the resumé of a supreme being. This is the kind of shit you can expect from an office temp with a bad attitude. In any decently run universe, this Guy would have been on his all-powerful ass a long time ago."
Welcome to Newsweek, welcome to the other America, welcome to the part that doesn't uphold the fake belief that poor people are simply not willing and greedy enough to make the money for a long and healthy life, welcome to the befamed and "extreme" left, where people actually say sensible things about topics that matter instead of making lunatic statements about topics we shouldn't even care to bring up.
The most important thing in life..., googling this phrase already shows that Google is not it. Here's what the search engine comes up with:
"wisdom" - One of the better answers.
"love, affection and loyalty of your mate" - Bad answer.
"to learn how to give out love and to let it come in" - Maybe, seems a little too exclusive for me.
"tomorrow" - I hardly think any tomorrow is more important than the past, next!
"health" - Bad answer and quite ignorant too.
Here's what I've come up with: "The most important thing in life is... knowing what's important." If you think this is circular logic, think again. The most important thing in life is having your priorities straight, knowing what's important, what's valuable, what's useful. Forget about money and economics, not that kind of value or use, I don't mean prices. I mean real use and value to humans and beyond. I mean knowing what's more important to do, to be, to act like, to make, to learn, to teach, to know, to feel, to heal... and I don't mean for yourself alone but probably for all of mankind and all of the cosmos. Big thanks to Socrates (the real one) for letting me stand on his giant shoulders on this one.
