Compassion, is not necessarily measured by how much one can do to humans' misfortune, but how much one feels about it.


Equality (film)

I believe "equality" refers to attitude, not fact. The fact is that differences between people, esp. individuals will always exist regardless how much we dislike them, so, instead of trying to eliminating differences, we could/should embrace them, treat them with equal attitude.

Of course, "equal attitude" doesn't mean asking a pregnant woman to lift a giant stone like Schwarzenegger did, or demand a dishwasher to solve a problem of Einstein's relativity, but treating them with equal amount of respect.

The Angelus (1857-1859) by Jean-François Millet.

Ignorance is not measured by how little we knows, but how much we falsely think we know. In this case, a doctor (one with Ph.D) who think he/she knows everything is more ignorant than a peasant who admit he/she knows nothing.

Ignorance = Amount of knowledge we falsely thinks we have - Actually amount of knowledge we have.

Thoughts on God's Forgiveness

Christ Suffering
Image via Wikipedia
Christians always talking about God's love by exhibiting God's compassion to those who committed serious crimes, such as violence, murder or even genocide, but not mentioning a word of what God could do for suffering (I am not talking about next life, or in heaven ,but in this life, on this place "God" created by his hands). So, why does God have this over abundant love or compassion to take care of murderers - by repeatedly showing his guarantee of their entering heaven (of course with one condition: becoming a christian at the end of life), but not have enough love and power to stop suffering of innocent people?

I am not talking about that we should not forgive, but it is my understanding that, compassion should always go to sufferers first, not criminals. So God must think differently. If not, how could he mess up this simply order by taking so much energy on forgiving criminals, not a little on suffering of innocents.

I do not suppose we could find an answer if we keep holding the premise of God's existence, keep trying to make sense from nonsensical Bible's words. However, if we look at this absurdity from "humans" angle, my answer is very simple: this "God"'s forgiveness to sinners (or murderers is a better word), is simply humans' excuse for their own weakness - irresponsibility.

Is God Omnipotently Forgiving?

English: Christus Pantocrator in the apsis of ...
Image via Wikipedia
Someone claims that God is omnipotently forgiving. One of the evidence of this forgiveness is that a murderer like David was chosen to be King of Israel. No, I do not believe that. I think "God" is just an excuse of humans' behaviors - when we need forgiveness, he "forgives" (otherwise how could we explain David was a King?); when we need to be judgmental, he judges (such as homosexuals, heretics, witches, scientists)!

No, I don't believe a murderer is forgivable, unless this murderer did something to compensate his/her crime. Otherwise, how dare are we have legal system to punish those who even God forgive?

Truth vs Disguise

Disguise in Love

Because truths don't need to disguise themselves, so they often look faker than lies.

Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.
