Die-ism

1 06 2008

Religion is such a nice subject to argue about. No one is really more right than the other because it is just faith. And faith is merely based upon beliefs–no physical evidence to back it up. A religious debate is almost like a philosophical tiff. One side starts with a statement about saviors, the other one fights back with a verse. They could go on for three days nabbing each other with words, but in the end, nobody wins.

Pretty senseless, huh?

I do not have a religion, if it is a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects. I refuse to conform into an ensemble of ethics that people before me have devised. “Ooh, he’s a devil, he does not have a God!,” you might think of me right now. But just to make it clear, I am not an atheist. I do believe in a glorious unseen (hehe, banda), I just don’t have a religion.

People like me are called deists. Deism is the belief in the existence of a God on the evidence of reason and nature only, with rejection of supernatural revelation, as opposed to you (yes, you reader) who’s most probably a theist. Theism is the belief in one God as the creator and ruler of the universe, without rejection of revelation, meaning, you believe in the bible–something we do not have in common. [Deism and Theism are NOT religions, these are just terms merely to specify someone’s take on the existence of God. Just like Male and Female, terms to specify the set of organs you have.]

Alright, the bible is a very good piece of literature, perhaps the best, but I doubt its historical accuracy. It’s in Hebrew for god’s sake, there’s a gazillion of words in the original scriptures. The English and Filipino versions we all might have read most probably have century-old typos.

Anyways, whatever. Hakhak. The classes start tomorrow so I better get ready for that.

Ampotacles.

I forgot how to derive and integrate, and our first class tomorrow is Differential Equation, which is completely reliant to differential and integral calculus–both of which I’ve already taken out of my grey matter.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

I am totally panicking. I have electronics and engineering subjects this term, and I hate electronics and anything engineering–which brings about the question “Why in the first place did I have to take up Electronics and Communications Engineering?”

I have to buy my supplies now, so ba-bye!
