To all the agnostic theists out there

        I always wanted to ask the agnostics why they sustain their system of belief. This question is specifically for the agnostic theists. why not give up the hope in finding religion instead of desperately clinging onto the little hope  of finding religion that makes sense. They believe that there is a higher entity, but doubt the plausibility of the current day religions. If you ask them, they think that a religion exists somewhere or will exist some time in the future that is able to satisfy their wishes, or that if they give the current religions more time they will eventually make sense. In my opinion, there never will be a religion that will satisfy a rational mind, you will always find a hole in the logic of any supernatural belief. The only thing that religion can provide is satisfaction for emotions, biases and false pretenses; irrational stuff!
        For me it is like the little kid who does not believe in Santa Claus but still believes that there is an all knowing physics defying person who will reward him for his good behavior. or worse there is the kid who knows intellectually that Santa does not exist but is always desperately searching for proof of his existence. Grow Up! Even if these beliefs give you comfort or serve some personal purpose in your life whether emotionally or psychologically , They deprive you of rationality in terms of outlooks to life; they keep your mind in a loop, cycling through the bunk logic of supernatural beliefs; they are chains to enslave you, your peers, friends,family and society to the maniacal plans of religious organizations .
        It is the same way the parents use Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny or even the thanks giving turkey, if their children believe in these myths then this is a short cut around their minds allowing the parents to influence the behaviors of the kids without having to work with the kids logic. Be good or Santa wont get you a present; you must do your homework or the Easter bunny wont crap some candy on Easter;You must be thankful of stuff or else the thanks giving turkey wont die for our dinner, and we wont feast on thanksgiving Thursday again. These beliefs destroy kids good sense and replace it with blind devotion to some folk idol just to make it easier for parents to micro manage their kids.
       Unless there are agnostics out there who just believe that there is more than one supernatural being and it is impossible to choose just one, in that case i say to you that are just another nutcase theist so there is no merit in you even reading this.

Embarassment from mistakes

The first instinct to a mistake is always embarassment. No matter the situation and no matter the stakes.Be it a surgeon, philosopher, troubleshooter when a person makes a mistake, they are embarasse,  their first thought is to hide the mistake, bury it in the past and move on. Thus one of  the hardest things to do is abandon this thought. One of the hardest decision one has to make is hide the mistake from society, higher powers and/or yourself, or else take steps to resolve it. 
I might have made a few mistakes in my interaction with people and social circles i have been with. I definitely have made some mistakes in my personal and professional lives. It was unavoidable, even inevitable. The real pain in the rear is trying to move on and correct these mistakes. Cause rest assured no matter the extent and damage of the mistake, I always do my best to make amends

All I want

I am lost. My mind is wandering with no where to go , exempt the wallowing depth of my boredom. My mind is trapped in walLs of nothing ness like metal bars imprisoning me.  I am lost because I am being imprisoned with laws and regulations I just want to just walk and be free from all of these rules.

Solutions to my pit of darkness: Do I listen to others or do I follow my dream. the problems with my dream is that people restrict me to the dreams I can have, but the range of my dreams is endless. The only solution to the problem is to just be me but how?

The answer is I can't, I want to just do something without someone pulling me back and scolding me for being irresponsible

What is my problem? How can I solve it? What do I want ? All in all, being me is just to hard.

Secular Humanism

Due to obvious superiority of religious organizations on matters of moral guidance (2000 year of it), it is imparative to have a parrallel non-religious moral guideline. The christian moral guideline which is the most prevalant was gotten from years of debate and politics by kings and historical figures of christianity using the church doctrine and jewish sources as a base. It is clear that moral guideline derived from discussion and debate by normal people for normal day to day usage using facts, analysis and critical thinking is a better alternative, however most people are unaware or unwilling to consider secular humanism, a discipline dedicated principally to the study of ethics and ethical stances without religious influence. This is not an uncommon trait in today's atheist community, causing many atheist to feel as if there is no ethical guidance available for them. However moral guidance without theism does exist in todays world and has existed for about a century and a half with a considerable population all around the world. The only difference to the converted atheist is that it has been deemed by people as a study not a discussion, commonplace in universities and other higher learning facilities but not as integrated to daily life of the common man as many religious institutions are! I personally would like a scientific humanistic discussion in my daily,weekly or monthly routine, maybe a television show, radio talk show or even blog entry discussing these matters. I am not implying the absence of these debates happening in the world, they are indeed happening! I am saying they are not common in most people daily life either due to lack of access or unavailability and this should not be so.
