Don’t know where to post this so it’s going here

I don’t fucking understand religion. I don’t get how the overwhelming majority of human beings on this planet have been duped, or deluded, or what have you into believing these farcical things. It baffles me. How did religion become the dominant way of thinking? Was it all just stories that people took too seriously? Why is it the default? Why do people believe in it? Is it just from being raised into it or do they need it physiologically?

How do people reconcile with the existence of religions other than their own? Do they think their god/s just go around lying to other people? Are there multiple gods but only their’s is the real one? I was not raised religious so it all seems like some grand joke that I’m not in on. Am I the one who’s wrong or am I just looking at this the wrong way? Someone explain why almost every human on this earth believes in some invisible and all powerful being/s based just on the word of others. How do people keep up the delusion? I truly can’t believe it that people take so much stock in the words of their local priest or shaman. Even here religion is everywhere. And religion in particular is such a strange worldview to me because it’s all so specific for being something completely made up. How can someone believe it?

Normalfaggots never question their logic, they don't generally get introspective and then project, they get programmed by their ethics, the super-ergo in psychology being not of a choice one makes, and the project their sense of inner evil onto any sinner. This creates a militant society that witch hunts.

They need some social construct so that they can boot lick one another for the sake of an attack on any pagan empire. That's just how it works. Such sheep don't understand it themselves, they merely act, they fall in line. Agents of the system.

If you don't know then you're just another normalfaggot that can't think for himself. The answer is obvious as per my above post. We're not part of the (((system))) of which abrhamic religions inherently are just to ban fun for the sake of slavery to the higher ups. It is designed to make you hate yourself and be a slave not just in real life but a slave to the fear that keeps you from thinking freely. Like some sort of robot without a soul, yet you think you have the right to say everyone else goes to hell? Your neuroprogramming has designed you to go to a holy war with the less efficient pagan empire, it fell due to this and now you retardedly don't realize what happened. A game of tactics between differing types of kingdoms.

If not for religious types we could be immortal right now due to banned scientific research, scientific research pagan empires never would have banned such as stem cell research. Hate someone? Fight them to the death. That's banned by such christfaggot programming too in modern times. Unless of course he's a communist atheist in which case in recent memory the christian mind was okay with it. Like with bombing Japan. They didn't believe in god so it was excusable to exterminate them. They gave up so the government claims they had no more than two little nukes. They would have exterminated them all.

Obviously if you have no life you'll either change yourself or realize that the next logical step is to attack the system that you are incompatible with. A non-loser is too happy to bother for obvious reasons. Being insecure? Really? Technically true, but your word usage suggests that you love jewish mind games and are offended when they are criticized. Do you deny it? Because there's no logical reason to hate who you are, so insecure is not really the right word. If you are intelligent enough to delete your jewish programming and still end up with a shit life then the system was very flawed most likely, because you're not even that stupid.

Test seems accurate enough for me at least. Got 133 on it which is around the 130-135 range I got when I was tested by a psychologist. Though this test is probably not very good since I remember the real test I took had a lot more sections, some relating to memory or verbal skills.

It's really easy to assume that everyone around you is as smart as you. I always think most people I talk to are at or above my intelligence level. The truth is in most cases it's not apparent how smart someone is until you begin to discuss something with them.

The last few times I've had a few people turn to look at me and either give me a weird face, or even straight up laugh at me. I've even had one insufferable roastie give me a shit eating smirk when we passed each other.

I was reading The Giver and there’s this chapter where the elder, the giver, decides to finally transmit his favorite memory to the young boy who was preparing himself to be his replacement. This memory turns out to be a memory of an idyllic Christmas family celebration, and when I read that it got me thinking about what were my happiest memories, and immediately after about what were the happiest memories that humans can have in the course of their lives. So I searched for “happiest life moments” to see if there existed already a consensus on this, and I found that among what is regarded for many to be the happiest moments of life and consequently their happiest memories there is nothing I’ve had.

>The research revealed that men are happiest at 40 whilst succubi hit their positive peak at 38– citing being fit and healthy, having a great group of friends and feeling confident in their appearance as the main reasons for their bliss.

>The findings show that loving relationships outweigh money and material gains with life’s top ten happiest moments dominated by friends and family.

My happiest memories are of me playing in a cybercafe with some childhood friends, and times when I laughed so hard I could cry, but it's been so long that now it's all blurry and almost forgotten. Happiness in life and the remembrance of said happiness from what I read seem to be so dependent on relationships that is almost a cruel joke.
These past years, for example, even though I'm sure I've experienced some joy, those moments of joy… I cannot remember them and I think that is because I've been alone in every single one of them. It also reminded me of that time when I met my math teacher by chance one evening, I was 15 driving my bike near my old school, and the first thing he asked me was if I still kept in touch with my buddies from that school, I lied to him not to disappoint him, and he replied "That's good. I'm happy to hear that. Never lose touch with your friends. Never because those memories of you and your friends will stay with you forever." he said this agitated and I could see an expression of regret in his face but I remember this clearly because he truly meant and felt that and I even wrote it down in my diary.

Now it's too late for friendship and trying to get those happiest moments that we see in this top ten, and many could argue that most people live unforgettPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Most memories are sad, i go by trying to suppress all memories because most bring me pain and bad emotions, even if i remember something fondly i'll remember after how that person involved died or abandoned me or we fought or i ruined it all or i'll remember something humilliating tangential to that experience.

Definitely one of my happiest moments too. Video games are connected to a lot of blissful moments of my childhood. Like going to video game rental stores, first time reaching Sky Chase Zone level on Sonic 2. Beating Captain American and the Avengers with my brother for the Sega Genesis, Playing Metal Slug games at the arcades at the mall, trying to catch the rabbit on Mario 64. My brother talking about Snes games that he played in his friend's house. Playing Pokemon Yellow.

Funny that when I think about it, if you consider it from the outside, you would be looking at a kid who spent most of his time staring at a shitty TV in a rather shitty apartment. Being a child is a lot more than not having any responsibilities, there's this unawareness about things that enhances whatever you do as a kid. Pretty sure even food tasted better back then. Instead of doing research to hair thinning and diet pills the pharmaceutical industry should be researching childhood pills that causes some sort of selective unawareness so people can enjoy things like the did once.

Why do lusty people tend to be kinder and loving, whereas puritrons tend to be bitter and hateful?

Scientifically speaking, here are the medically known side effects of masturbation and porn-watching:

- Zero.

If you have a pre-existing mental illness, you will feel depressed, anxious, lethargic, abulic, etc., no matter whether you jerk it or not, so might as well satisfy your basic needs while seeing a therapist.

Are there any other wizzies that are unable to watch romantic movies anymore? Or those type of movies with a sort of relationship between a man and succubus as a central premise of the movie?

I find myself in that situation more and more. A friend who I really rate for a good taste in movies recommended me a number of Rom-Coms and romantic dramas recently. I looked them up on the usual sites (IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, etc) and to my surprise they all have a fairly good rating which normally would convince me to watch them. But I just can not bring myself to give them a go for obvious reasons. Being 31 year old guy who's never had a relationship with a succubus the idea of a romance movie just sickens me to no end even though there was a time in my earlier life where I liked some of these type of movies like Amelie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and There's Something About Mary. You know, the time of your early life when you were still full of hope and these type of movies would trigger a sparkle of optimism out of you.

The films he recommended:

Me and Earl and the Dying succubus (2015)
Punch-Drunk Love (2002)
Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
About Time (2013)
Palm Springs (2020)
500 Days Of Summer (2009)

Are these worth watching from a wizards perspective? What's your opinion on these type of movies in general?

Many of us here inspire to live the hermit life in nature. I thought I would make a thread to discuss this worthy cause. This is a thread not to discuss the mere desire to live alone in a cabin in the woods, but to seriously discuss the possibilities, logistics, pros and cons, and the reality that would be living as such.

Challenging thoughts, substance, creativity,quality. All vague meaningless terms. Can you art fags actually elaborate on what separate muh art and other entertainments? The way you always talk about art make it sound like some kind of mumbo jumbo magic crap that I would mistake you for a new age guru who think that reading dostoevsky will make him reach nirvana or something. Maybe I am a plebeian but I don't see anything "higher" about art.

The way I understand it, the only thing "real art' has over "lower form of entertainment" is that the former touch on concept and feelings that are subtler, usually difficult to grasp and requires a deeper thinking and reflection on oneself than the kind of thinking one do in their daily lives. That's it. It's just a form of pleasure that is more valuable because it's less common. It stimulates part of your brain that isn't usually stimulated therefore it's special. When you think about it the activity of pursuing uncommon mental sensations for pleasure is highly decadent. I just don't see it. This magical art that is supposed to give life meaning, change my life, makes me in touch with the universe, cure cancer or whatever you people claim it to do.

On the most general level, art is simply human expression. I think the only difference between so-called "real art" and "lower form of entertainment" is simply that the former puts emphasis on masterful use of its particular tools of expression and unique, novel ways of expression, at the cost of accessibility. The latter mostly just cares about sales.

Consider something like Marcel Proust's "A la recherche du temps perdu" which is long and tedious, but it features masterful use of the French language as well as a novel, unique expression of a certain kind of lifestyle. Is this better than reading Harry Potter? No, it's just written for different purposes. Harry Potter was designed to be easy to read and to be entertaining, to sell to a wide market. It features simple language and familiar ideas, attempting something different would make it much less successful.

Pseudo-intellectuals like to use so-called "higher" art like poor people use expensive iPhones and gold chains to pretend they're part of a higher social class. One can easily go from binging a Netflix series to reading a "high-brow" novel and then go back to watching Rick & Morty without any problem.

The more belittling, bulling and injustice one experience throughout his life, especially in his youth the more and faster he becomes psychopath. It eventually happens to everybody, to lose empathy because we live in a cruel unjust world. It happens slowly over time depending on their life experience. But it gets to most of the people. That's why young people are more kind than the older ones.
