I thought being ugly made you ugly

You know those thoughts you have about sex? Those things make you ugly.

You know those urges to eat a little more than you should? Those things make you ugly.

You know those urges to tell people lies, or stretch the truth or whatever? Those things make you ugly.

You know those two people in the garden of Eden, Adam and Eve, their selection of a certain fruit made you ugly.

Blame them for your ugliness.

But thank the ovarian lottery you were born where you learned about the Adam and Eve version of ugliness, so that you could be beautiful again.

Does anyone else tire of this bizarre, cyclical method of thought?

  1. I’m not sure we’re on the same page.

    The sex of the child has nothing to do with the lottery.

    The point is the location the baby is when it’s born. Not sex.

    Afghani children are more likely to grow up in a Muslim home. American Children in a “Christian” one.

    Yes! For someone like me it’s practically embarrassing. =80{

    I pasted FB friend, Jim Palmer’s, “11-Step Religious Guide To Sabotaging Your Life” on my wall today and some of his points were similar and spot on:

    1. Begin with the premise that there is something hopelessly and incurably wrong with you.
    2. Believe that your humanity is an affront to God, and an obstacle to overcome and an evil to repress or eradicate.
    3. Pin your hopes on the afterlife, and don’t get too attached to the here-life.
    4. Mistrust what you most deeply think and feel.
    5. Give others the power and authority to determine what your beliefs, values, opinions, goals, desires and views are.
    6. Fear, reject, condemn and close yourself off from anything that doesn’t fit with what you got in #5.
    7. Focus on behavior modification, checklists, do’s and don’ts, appearances, obedience, and keeping the rules when it comes to living your life.
    8. Make everything black and white.
    9. Make sure everything and everyone in life is assigned a label or put into a box.
    10. Label science and psychology as “secular,” “carnal,” or “worldly,” and stay away from it.
    11. Consider talk of love, unity, harmony, peace, beauty and oneness as foolish or dangerous.

    Thought you might enjoy it…

  3. Thanks for posting this list, Julie.

    It’s very accurate in how many non-believers feel about the whole conversation.
