Christi, Maria, Hans Dieter-Himmelfahrt ?? - Nichts ist leichter als das.


(Bild:Zahnersatz des bekanntesten Zeloten seiner Zeit, in der Mitte: Darstellung des Ballons mit dem Jesus ne Himmelfahrtsrunde flog ... bestehend aus einem großem, einfachen Papierkkegel der von unten befeuert wurde. Hat nicht gut funktioniert, aber für die damalige Zeit genügte der kleine Hüpfer um als Wunder anerkannt zu werden. Später haben die Gebrüder Mongolfier die Idee nocheinmal aufgegriffen...)

Die Himmelfahrt ist ein beliebtes Motiv der religiösen Umnachtung. Lustvoll masochistisch löst sich das Fleisch vom Planeten und fährt auf in Höhen wo die, aus Angst und Verwirrung, imaginierten Götter thronen. Der Drops ist gelutscht, Himmelfahrten sind heute zum Alltag geworden und den Göttern geht es hintenrum vorbei.

Man nehme einen Propheten, Scharlatan oder, einen radikalen Verlierer der an Höheres glaubt - binde ihm eine Prallplatte an den Hintern und zünde in regelmäßigem Rhythmus eine Atombombe nach der anderen. Fertig ist der Orionantrieb, dessen Konzept bis in die späten 1950er zurückreicht.

Die Atomwaffen der Erde wären entsorgt, sie hätten am Ende doch noch Sinn gemacht und die Himmelfahrer würden im Bombenumdrehen am Kuipergürtel vorbei in die Endlosgkeit stolpern. Das wäre zwar kein Wunder, dafür aber eine günstige Gelegenheit so manches Angstloch in den Weltraum zu entsorgen. (Im Bild rechts: EscapeII-A433 - Weltraumzivilisation leicht gemacht.)

Wenn vor lauter Infohysterie, Medieninduktion, Konsumfaschismus und Politik der Angst das Dach brennt, wird der Weg in den Himmel frei.

Faithfully considered, ‘Religio-’ is the greatest con of all.


[image: some refugees ...]

[german version]

[caption:] No religion should be part of this world… Dangerous criminals and rapists only deserve limited rights. These days, in this our twenty-first century, the ‘human right’ to freedom of religion has been turned into the opposite of human rights as a whole. Current religiously motivated practices have superseded the right to dignified human existence and are thereby a contradiction of the seemingly humanitarian concept behind the human rights in general.

When the highest representative of the faith most notorious for child abuse – the Pope in Rome – gathers together the abusive multitudes, we need to be on red alert. It is said that the purpose of this event is to ‘re-evaluate’ the Criminal History of Christianity. For the millionth time, the largest criminal organisation in human history is trying to pull its neck out of the noose of the enlightenment.

And to a certain extent, they will once again manage to do so. Superstition is deeply rooted in the human condition; the brain will happily make the body believe anything in order to keep it alive. Religion is an archaic form of social policy that preys on people’s emotions and their longing for spirituality and ‘a being higher or other than oneself’. In light of the history of civilisation, the sense of religion has long been in doubt, even as that ‘sense of purpose’ was pushed ahead using mass murder, bloodshed and tears. It was only the Enlightenment that brought about further cultural achievements. However, all over the world, those are currently being pushed back by right-wing dunderheads, retro-Nazis, the finance capital and, needless to say, faith-based groups.

One topical example, a mere 14 centuries ago, is Islam. …/An honest-to-God camel herdsman marries his – slightly wilted – superior to get his hands on money and power. Following her demise, he immediately founds a heavily armed roving warrior ‘nation’ and, taking a leaf from the Greeks, the Jews and the Romans (Christians), he quickly conquers himself an ‘empire’. This violent superstition, with its Judeo-Christian trappings, persists into the present day, with an immediate impact on the people subjected to its rule. It serves as a rallying cry for all kinds of holy warriors and, most of all, as a tool for suppressing the female half of Muslim societies and for cementing the power hegemony of the clerics.

With their most recent conference, Christendom seeks to save the Catholic church – and they will successfully do so. That is a catastrophe. All Christian churches will come to their own inhumane conclusions. As a result, all of these Jesus sects – from Catholics and Orthodox at the end, via hysterical Protestants to the Coptic origins – will remain a cesspool to catch the sewage of organised crime, war mongering, money laundering and (not only sexualised) violence against people.

Instead of being disowned and shunned, the freedom of religious worship will continue to undermine human rights in general.

So progressive, democratically minded and cosmo-political people will only have to console themselves with the following motto: God and intelligence are not part of the universe – it works without them.

... and: Morality has nothing to do with religion. In fact, the opposite is the case, as demonstrated by the history of religions – on any continent and in any era.

Anyone still keen on having a part of this monotheism scam, could do worse than getting a load of the unutterably bad novel series Warhammer 40,000: The whole genocidal story, just wrapped up as SciFi. Definitely more realistic and Roman than the longwinded pamphlet that is the Bible.

Living on Mars? Bullshit ...


[Image: the Universe as fair ground ride…]

[german version]

On the occasion of the demise of the Mars Opportunity Rover that was supposed to work for 90 days but was still busily active on the Marsan surface for just under 15 years, allow me to put my two cents in concerning this issue. This nimble little robot explored the surface of Mars and has generated untold amounts of data. A dust storm in the summer of 2018 at last sealed its fate.

Mars: The red planet, god of war and desirable destination of a hubris-ridden species living one planet inward from it in an insignificant star system at the outer fringes of this massive intergalactic party.

It is this irradiated and poisoned desert planet that, if the hubristic monkeys get their say, will soon be the home for people. Bullshit, it won’t! The exploration of Mars is in full swing – and it happens in the only way possible: fully automatically or semi-autonomously using machines.

The little robot assistants to the big and admittedly only partially intelligent monkeys are whizzing around on the surface or are mapping the planet from orbit. They have already discovered water, iron and a variety of other resources.

There is nothing to be said against automated utilisation of these resources to further the goals of the tool using apes. Even isolated mining stations or fuel refineries operated by humans are in the realm of what’s possible.

But actual settlements are not happening – after all, who wants to live in constant twilight, immersed in radiation, stuck in a lava tube? Toxic dust makes every stroll a living nightmare and a form of self-torture, requiring massively uncomfortable hazmat suits.

Not to mention: Would you like to be locked up for months and years in a confined space with a bunch of other weirdos? Also, nobody really knows how fungi and other cultures develop in small habitats.

Certainly, Space X are on the right path when they use space tourism as a way of dumping the odd billionaire on Mars so that he doesn’t bother us here on Earth, but that is not what one might call a settlement. Instead, we could see it as a creative form of suicide. Mars One has failed. But that start-up&go-down media hoax was more or less stillborn.

What Mars is ideal for is as a fuel dump for exploring the solar system – the asteroid belt in particular – and as a place for scientific research. On closer inspection, it becomes clear that this is the way we’re headed. The sky is NOT the limit. Let us build a ring of machines around the Earth… the rest we will sort out later…
