There are some things in this world that we will never know; is there really a God, what is heaven like, is hell real, what is really going on in womens’ minds? Although we cannot know these things, we can at least have opinions and beliefs about them. We can also learn other peoples beliefs, and that is pretty bitchens.
I love to know what other people believe; I find it fascinating. And why wouldn’t I? People are really fucked up in their heads, and that is interesting! I know that I’m pretty crazy, and surely to someone out there, I am something they would like to study (of course, all they have to do is read my posts and they would know; they only have to do a lit-review!).
My brother recently started a new blog. It is called The Things I Find. You an get there by clicking THIS link. He is hoping to learn more about people’s opinions and feelings on things, and who can blame him, I hope to illicit responses with my posts as well, there is a lot of good dialogue that can happen through comments and I would love it if yall would leave a few more down there at the bottom of each post, then we could talk, and argue, and bitch at each other. Wouldn’t that be awesome!?! So how about some comments bitches? I can only banter with my brother for a little while before we both get bored, we’ve been doing it for twenty-five years, it has gotten a little stale for the most part. I can tell you now, he will probably comment on this agreeing; though upon reflection, he may disagree just so we have something to argue about. That really sounds like something he would do; of course now that I have mentioned him doing those things, he will probably not post at all out of spite.
Anyway, I really like the sharing of ideas, beliefs, values and all that kind of stuff. I think that if we did more sharing of ideas towards a common goal rather than just trying to insert our ideas into the conversation then we may be able to really tackle some of the issues in the world, or at the very least improve our personal relationships a little.
Unfortunately, most people think that they are the only one that has any good ideas, and that everyone else should listen to them because they are obviously the only one that is correct. This makes me think of a thing my dad used to tell us boys, it used to piss me off to all ends, because I knew I was right (and many times I was, just because it wasn’t his way didn’t mean it was the wrong way); he used to tell us, “Which do you think is more likely, that the rest of the world is fucked up, or it’s just you?” Like I said, it used to piss me off to all ends, but that may have been because he was referring to his opinion as if that was what the rest of the world believed, surely the rest of the world didn’t believe that, otherwise I would have believed it too…
Anyway, yeah, back on topic. If you come up with an idea, something that no one has ever thought of, it doesn’t mean it is right; sometimes you’re just the one that is fucked up and the rest of the world is right. Luckily though, this is not always the case. If we didn’t have people coming up with novel ideas all the time, we wouldn’t have most of the technology that we have right now. I now I am kind of rambling on now, but I would seriously like a little more feedback, I guess that is my point. I want to hear from you readers, I want to know what you think, and I want to know your opinions. I would like to be able to address your questions and concerns. If you disagree with me, I will argue with you, but I will also listen to what you have to say and see if it fits into my world of beliefs, that is how I believe we grow as people. If you are one of those that will not consider the ideas and beliefs of others, you are probably pretty stagnant and have very little in your life that is all that joyous.
It is kind of like how your mom told you (or your dad told you, or both your dads/moms told you in cause you grew up in a same-sex household, the nun told you in the case you grew up in an orphanage, or the wolves told you in case you grew up in a cave raised by wild animals…), “how do you know you don’t like it, you’ve never tried it!” I think that this philosophy can be applied to a lot of things in life. I am not saying all things, because some of us have beliefs that forbid us from doing certain things, we have an “out” on those based on a belief that is outside of personal taste/choice (just so you know, I am not going to sit here and debate on whether or not being gay is a choice of if people are born gay, cause I don’t care, they’re people and that is how I see them, who they fuck in their off-time is none of my business; which by the way is why I don’t care for gay pride parades, so your gay, so what, I don’t really care, you’re just another person to me and I could give a rat’s ass).
What I’m saying is, if you don’t try tofu, how can you say that you don’t like it? I used to say I didn’t like tofu, then I tried it, it is pretty good. Before I had every flown in a plane, I said I didn’t like the thought of flying, now that I have actually flown in one, I know for a fact that I really don’t like to fly. Until I had actually experienced these things, I didn’t know for a fact that I didn’t like them. Until you have experienced things, or at least considered them and investigated them, there is no way for you to really say that you agree/disagree/enjoy/hate/etc those things. So if you have not argued a point, you can’t say that you truly agree or disagree with it.
I am going to stop rambling now, because I don’t think that is very productive at all. Plus I am about out of space and need to finish up quickly since my lunch is about over.
Coming on Monday next week I will begin posting at all kinds of crazy hours, this will be because I am getting the internet again. I am very happy about this choice because I miss being able to access information at any time I wish. I am kind of an information junky, I like to have my brain swimming with knowledge and ideas, but I need some way of accessing knowledge and ideas. I could go to the library, but typically I have to read entire books I am not interested in just to get the little in that last chapter that I was looking for. With the net, I can access that nugget of information immediately…mmmmm fast knowledge!
