Blasphemy from an Agonostic: Tom Cruise and Scientology makes as much sense as any other religion

I just read that Katie Holmes returned to the Catholic Church. I’m wondering if religion is  what really broke up their marriage. I think they’re both just kidding themselves if that’s what it’s really about. I’m thinking that there is more to it than the religion idea. I bet there’s something else going on there.

I know it’s none of my business, but it is fun to think about the whole thing. Maybe because, it’s not exactly fair Tom Cruise gets a lot of money pretending he’s someone else.

Many people think Scientology is really like….science fiction.

I may get a lot of flack for this, but any religion sounds as ridiculous to me as Scientology. Going up in space makes just as much sense to me, as people from another world coming to Earth and talking to us.

My father came close to death once, and he told me “ it felt like a TV screen losing it’s signal.” He didn’t see any lights, heaven, dead relatives  or anything like that. But it would be nice if that stuff really occurred. Nobody wants it all just to end. Not much fun in that.

I’ve watched  Pat Robertson on the 700 club.  ( I can’t take it too long). He actually closes his eyes and prays in front of all the TV viewers. He never hesitates to ask for money shortly after he does this. How many people fall for his act? Many!

It’s just like people want to believe in psychics predicting their future. How in the world can anyone know anyone else’s  future. Every time any of them appear on radio, the lines are jammed to get in.   Like the Amazing Randy has said, “it’s all trickery.” I believe that too.

I guess life is so bizarre that we all want it to make sense. We all want to think our religion is the right one. We all want to think someone else can tell us how to live it, and what is going to happen.

Because if you’re the wrong religion, you might get locked out of heaven. I have a tendency to believe in the big bang and evolution. Now, that does make some sense.

I’ll say this. “Anything is possible.” I figure whoever or whatever thought this up, can’t be too excited about all the fighting that goes on in the name of religion.  It is a strange bizarre life. If there really is a Hell it will be interesting to see if Pat Robertson ends up there for fleecing all those poor innocent victims.

A Full Moon sparks a discussion? What do you think?

Tonight the moon looked especially big. It hasn’t looked this big  to people on earth  for 18 years.  There are scientific reasons for this. My husband explained it all to me. He’s a scientific guy.

It started my husband and I thinking. We’ve discussed the very same issues for years and years. We always come up with different ideas.It’s always fun to speculate, but who really knows?

Do you ever wonder?

1. How did we get here?

2. Where are we going when our lives are over?

3. Do we really go anywhere, or is it  just over when it’s over?

4. Why do we consider the moon and stars so beautiful?

5. Is there life on other planets? It would be silly to think there isn’t in the large universe.

6. Have there been other places like the earth that self-destructed? Have we been here before?

7. Do we have a spirit that turns into something else?

8. Is there any sense to all the religions of the world?  Or are they just people’s ways of coping with their eventual demise?

9. Is there a creator?

10. Could all this just be an accident?

I’m sure I might get a reply from a religious fanatic, or someone who is certain they know the answer.

But nobody can really know. Even if you’ve been revived from death, you can’t know if your experience was real, or just some trick you’re brain was playing on you.

By the way, my husband and I will be married for 39 years today.  Isn’t it nice that we can still want to wonder together? Isn’t it nice we’re still in love?

Happy Anniversay!
