What I actually want to say is that my parents are devoutly Jewish, that I was raised Jewish and that I still consider myself someone who believes in God, in an afterlife, in some divine/higher callings -- someone who believes in a spiritual power that unites us all as human beings. But it's the organized part of religion that I've lost a taste for -- the ritual and the tradition and closedmindedness. That I'm not very conservative in my faith -- that I'm against circumcision and how Israel's treating Palestine and I'm not too concerned about what's kosher and what isn't.

Or I could also go the route where I claim to be a member of a small sect attempting to revive Catharism, because there were some good ideas in there and maybe the world would have been a more peaceful place if they'd had a chance to propagate instead of what did.

Or maybe I'm one of those dreadful Wiccans you always here about -- you know, the ones that practice ritual dogfuckery and kidnap school children in Very Special Episodes of Walker, Texas Ranger.

Or I could go back to that original claim I made about being a brony except I don't watch the show because I enjoy it because I'm subconsciously leading myself down paths that bring about ego death and for some reason that show just /does/ that for me.

Or I could be the kind of guy that comes up with bullshit numerology that shouldn't work out except it does, a enough and in big enough ways, to make me wonder if I'm getting flashes of precognition.

But in reality I think everyone here is well aware that I am actually a spambot, and not even a person at all, and as such petty human needs like 'religion' are completely alien and beneath me.

Dear Friend,

I seriously hate how everyone gets together to look at a dead body and cry.

It's better than everyone getting together to look at a dead body while silently masturbating, at least.

Which is still better than everyone getting together to look at a dead body while noisily masturbating.

I don't want no one looking at my corpse. Burn the thing asap and throw a party in my honour.

I refuse to waste an hour+ out of everyone's time for shit like that.

It's expensive as hell too. And awkward. And depressing for reasons beyond the whole funeral thing.

At grandfather's funeral my
-uncle who had claimed he didn't want anything to do with the family anymore suddenly became super friendly. Thee wasn't even an inheritance at stake, so it was really creepy.
-my grandmother asked if her husband was going to join us for dinner even though she'd just said goodbye to him
-my grandmother also asked who the little n******s were. They're her grandchildren.

Speaking on the subject of death, all this talk has reminded me that I once has a dream during which I believe I went to the afterlife (or at least the space between this life and the next) and spoke with an angel. I suppose it is equally likely (or considerably more likely) that it was just a dream, but to me I feel like it was real or at least a perception of what that portion of the afterlife is really like. Mind you I don't have any real theological revelations from said dream. Basically it went:

-I die in the dream
-I am in a black void with nothing in it
-Voice(angle) speaks to me saying that I've been given an extra week
-I ask why
-Silence for a few seconds followed by voice saying it didn't know why
-Then I am back where I died in the dream

Doesn't really give much of value, but the dream happened and it was real to me. Hopefully I was just in the space between this life and the next (or in "processing") as a black void would be a very boring afterlife.

Side note: I also saw a ghost when I was really little, so I really have to wonder why I struggle so much with the concept of the afterlife at times/the soul. I guess it is a combination of me fearing that I am wrong while another part of me fearing that I am right, but that other people are right about what the afterlife is (aka something that I don't want) making me hope that I am wrong, but still wanting to be right about not existing.....and I am just ranting now.

Who could murder this face?
