[Someone] stated this about god - " He hears and always there for us to guide, protect and support." Just wondering if many of those who died in the mega -typhoon Haiyan were not heard by god to be "guided, protected and supported" during the height of the devastating wind and why not? Were they all sinners and offended god somehow-- including the babies and children?

Man turns to God because he could not comprehend or trust the explanations of Science about human life and the universe. Scientists generally dismiss the notion of God from creation to the most current religious thinking because they claim that such theories conflict with the Laws of Nature. On the other hand adherents of St. Thomas Aquinas base their belief in God on the Theory of the "Prime Mover". It could be stated in the simple question "If the Egg came before the Chicken, who created the Egg"? Big Bang is the Scientist answer for that. And that is where the problem lies because it is hard to comprehend what a big bang is. Or who created the first big bang. There must be somebody who created the first atom or molecule, otherwise how could there be a big bang?

[Someone]: Religion guides political beliefs. The Republicans do not believe in social programs. They believe in creation and dismiss evolution. They believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. Vatican is against the death penalty but the US consider it "legally and morally right" It is not difficult to discern the role of religion in politics; unless one is intellectually deficient making such a comment that is beyond one's level of comprehension.

[Someone] said, "Your elitist Catholic education is explicable by unbounded self-immolation of ignorance, stupidity, corruption & fanaticism". I do not know who are referring to but your words are very inappropriate for this Forum. We are here to discuss, not to demean or denigrate. You are obviously using this Forum to demean and denigrate Catholic School graduates. What issues you have with them I do not know. But your feelings of inferiority to these people are so noticeable. Just because people do not know something that you "know" does not make those people ignorant and stupid. I have quoted to you before and here it is again: "People who call others stupid should first look at themselves in the mirror to remind themselves what a stupid person really looks like".

Something is being missed here. God's concern for us is our salvation; not reward for good deeds, not punishment for bad behavior, or regular church attendance or even poverty and suffering. It is being right with God which only Him and you the person with a clean conscience, know if that relationship is right. Nothing else counts otherwise it's all secondhand worldly religion.

Large religious organizations like any other businesses face challenges. The sexual molestation of catholic priests is but one of them. How to treat gays and lesbians is also one of them. The conflict with science and religion. (Bing Bang Theory vs. creation ) is another one. Muslims praise the abstract than the concrete, dwell on the past than the present and their education is deeply rooted on religious teachings. Muslims are in fact so obsessed with angels and demons, Satan and God. Martyrdom gets rewarded with 72 virgins ( who have already been screwed by Christians)

A blogger asked, "How can you separate Religion from God when the majority of Filipinos are unconscious believers of religious phenomena?" My side: You said "Majority". Therefore by your own words there is a "Minority". And this minority can separate Religion from God. Therefore Religion and God can be separated. That was tantamount to an implied admission on your part. Was there organized religion in the time of Moses, Noah, Abraham? And yet they believed & communicated with God. On that basis Religion and God can be separated. God does not depend on Religion for acknowledgement.

[Someone] talks about God and mercy. Now there's a contradiction in terms. Tell that to the poor and hungry. Tell that to the sick and dying. Tell that to the family of the little girl that was gang raped and murdered in Bataan yesterday. No amount of praying will change your lot one bit here on earth. Eternal life that's what the church want's to sell you. I would settle for everyone just to be happy now.

The Filipino culture is so dependent on the intervention of God . Revilla surrenders his faith to GOD. Napoles sends frantic calls for help through a mediator (Virgin Mary) by reciting the rosary many times over the day. It is only Nalundasan and Enrile who have shown no remorse. They are firm in their beliefs that they have done no wrong. Who needs GOD if their conscience is clear?

[Someone] said, "Filipinos are unconscious believers of religious phenomena". Really? Why do you say "unconscious?" Weren't they brought into religious beliefs and rituals as soon as they were born? And why would you apply the question of separation of Religion and God to Filipinos alone. Aren't there any other people in this world? So the question remains, as far as those other people are concerned can you separate Religion from God? Seriously by your mishmash of quotations you reveal the limits of your horizons. Particularly so when you call your fellow bloggers "stupid" & "ignorant".

Sam Juan : That someone who posed the question if religion could exists without GOD is just asking the same question if there is water without two molecules of hydrogen and one oxygen. Religion is nothing more than a worship of a super controlling power. Most people believe in an unseen God. Some believe however in things they see. To the rich, Money and Power is their God. OMG!

Art1234 Jesuits are not liberals. Believe me the truth is they are so conservative, Jesuits elect their own Pope. He is called the Black Pope. They do this because they are as hard as nails and always feel the Pope is weak. It confuses me how this current Pope became a Jesuit and stayed one with his crazy ideas. If a Pope could be impeached he would.

Some 90% of the world's population has a religion. The only difference is who their GOD is. Islam had Allah as God and Mohammed as its prophet. Christianity has JC as its prophet. How religion is practiced by those who embraced Christianity could be grouped into being conservative or being liberal. Islam is more radical in the practice of that religion. Conversion to Islam is forced. Just look at what is happening in Syria and northern part of Iraq with the Sunnis. I am glad that less than 3% of the population are agnostics but the number is growing. Check that out [someone]!

Christianity is leaning toward the science's point of view that humans evolved out of a single cell amoeba. But first the religious authorities will have to change the Dogma about Genesis. After all, most Bibles in Genesis says "...in the beginning there was only DARKNESS..." Scientists have now agreed that the Universe was created by the Big Bang (explosion) and that before the Big Bang (which created the Universe as we know today) so there must really just DARKNESS in space. Remember that passage in Genesis of "only DARKNESS" predate Science's Big Bang. After all, what created the "matter(s)" that caused the Big Bang? That's the point in time that Christianity is leaning; that, that "matter(s)" was created by God, therefore Genesis in the Bibles should start from there.

Further to my preceding entry, Genesis stretching back to the time even before the Big Bang, religions (of all persuasions) would still come out to be truthful to the Dogma that God created the world (in fact, should be Universe). This time it may not be in 7 days per the original Genesis says but over millions of years when finally that single cell life evolve into His likeness. After all, there must be point in time when man began to be conscious/aware of his existence and how he looks, so learned to note it down that's why the results is Genesis in the Bible as we know it today. This got to be the trend. Religion can not escape any more the knowledge that creation did not take place in the last 6 or 7 thousand years ago only.

Hinduism believes in reincarnation of the soul. Christians, savation and a seat in heaven. Imagine your soul reincarnated into a tree. You become useful to mankind.

And finally, here's my stake on the view of God not only of Catholics headed by, starting from Pope Francis: The Book of Genesis will be "rewritten" moving back creation to 14-15 billion years ago when the Universe began its existence after the Big Bang. After all, it's been preached since time immemorial (nobody really knew the proximate time when) by religious moolahs of all persuasions that "God is the King of all the Universe". BTW, not really to be "rewritten" the Book of Genesis but the interpretations will be changed to adapt with the times. I will bet my last aluminum centavo on that.

There is more ignorance [someone] amongst people who were not blessed with education provided by Catholic institutions than public education. There is a diiference between muslim schools that spend inordinate amount of time on religious teachings than events in the real world. Why do you harbor so much acrimony with Catholic schools when the Catholic missionaries open the minds of the natives to the real world? You were left hiding in the caves. Or perhaps you just turned your back!

The quoted statement I presented was not mine for your info. Mr. Am-Fil. Go back & read who gave such statement when I said I was called "Man from the North", "Erap's Idol" etc. The guy who claimed to have a better education can't even make a good sentence structure that's why he can't understand what I'm saying. I also have stated words have different meanings and one should understand how it is used in the sentence. Didn't I say in my post the neurologist's comment my brain is good because there is "NO VACUOLE" or radio-lucent patches following my MRI? It is full of dense, compact, white substance in the set of films that was shown. Giving outside connotation is full of dumbness. BTW, I believe in God & the Catholic Church is ONE, HOLY, APOSTOLIC CHURCH. No one is PERFECT in this world.

The production of religion & its function is no different from the competing human affairs or interests. You have to engage in self-criticism or "self-critique of religion" to understand the historical foundation of religious ideas. Why? Some thinkers argue that the idea of God is a delusion. And religion is considered fraud, according to Marx & his followers like the Communist Chinese: religion is the instrument of the ruling class & the foundation of its ultimate reality is materialism [see Catholic liberation theology influenced by Marxism in Latin America]. It takes more than a book to summarize the religions & their histories in this forum. Happy Thanks Giving!

A lot of Catholics and non-Catholics whose rites of the Mass is similar to Catholic's that there were a lot of translation from Latin to vernaculars including English where erroneous and as I posted earlier the Catholic hierarchy are just beginning to correct them. Foremost is the word "Cup". It is now corrected to "Chalice" the vessel of liquid used by Jesus in the last supper. The word "Chalice" (in Latin) is supposedly been used in the rites of Mass since the 3rd Century. "Also with you" (old) to "and with your spirit" (new). And many more. So why not the "Creation and Big Bang"? to conformed with Evolution. The Pope and the Sayangtis will be happy-happy.

It is frustrating to entertain stupid questions in this forum. It seems that stupidity can't be cured by self-confessed elitist Catholic educated critics in this forum. Can you separate religion from God? As long as the unconscious Filipino religious believers & corrupt Filipino politicians conceive the unknown, all beings & religious phenomena like themselves, how can you separate religion, [which origin is very primitive & very difficult to define] from mythology or god? A scholar defines religion: "it consists of an absolute sense of dependence." You even consider your corrupt politicians like gods, who profit from your credulity in the democratic ballot box: blind & fanatic voters.

1) After a brief spell the Papa-San from Angeles City's Red light district said, "Without Doubt the Filipinos are the most dishonest, corrupt people in the world" in his blog the other day. I was getting ready to put this Pimp back in his place when to my amazement there is a blogger among us who suggested that those who called [him] names should apologize. I do not know who this blogger is or what he stands for. But such outrageous suggestion tells me this blogger is either a Filipino without any ethnic pride or a hypocrite, in which case he should join Villegas the so-called Archbishop in calling attention to his piousness……

To my disappointment no one, NOT ONE blogger said anything to this guy. THAT makes me sad. It shows in graphic terms the Filipino dysfunction. We are ready to put each other down and criticize each other to extinction for mere disagreements in political opinion. Yet NO ONE would say a word to this PIMP, who insults our race at every blog?

You made an entry in this forum that I've been calling names. I responded to you that I was not the instigator & therefore, I have to reply. Do you get the issue? A word has different meanings & when used you should know what's being talked about. Is it your concern if I support & defend Sen. Jinggoy P. Ejercito? You are entitled to your opinion & why can't you respect my decision defending especially against liars & maligners? You said he is a thief & it's an assumption & quite bias coming from an educated man you claimed to be. Was he found by Sandiganbayan guilty of corruption, kickbacks, beyond reasonable doubt? THERE'S NO COURT HEARING YET except for the bail but YOU ALREADY HAVE DECIDED HE IS GUILTY of stealing taxpayers money. What kind of person are you? Intruder deserves response.

There was no "ANALOGY" mentioned relative to the "Power of Attorney". You assumed Sen. Jinggoy P. Ejercito to have executed one so someone can sign his signature which to me is full of stupidity. I said ANATOMICALLY, I have a dense brain full of millions of neuroglia & NOT the kind of brain you've been thinking possibly an infarcted brain. Why would a man like you claiming to be educated say I have a "dense" brain thinking the worst definition? I'm still alive & have survived the barriers, difficulties of living & for you to speculate something stupid only brings you to unworthiness. And you claim to be religious invoking the word God.

AIRFIELD? A picture in my newspaper showed some activity by China in the contested Spratlys. The caption said that China was building an Airfield on the biggest land, and on the surrounding smaller lands were edifices being built that would support and protect the Airfield. Now that China's intrusions are getting ample coverage in the western media we can only hope that the USA's action is not far behind. But really, at this point I am assuming that the Chinese airfield is as good as done. It will have a military base sitting right on PHL land. Calling whoever is still alive of the 12 Senators who voted to close the US Bases. What do you say now? Where is your "Patriotism" now?

Now that Pacquiao is back to his old glory in the PHL let's just hope he does not aspire to be Pope. I am afraid that when Pacquiao sees how the Filipinos revere and respond to the Pope when he visits the country Pacquiao might begin to have ideas on becoming the Pope. I just hope he does not listen to Binay making that suggestion to him.

In the win of Pacquiao over Algieri, Pacquiao was not superb. It is just that Algieri was not throwing punches. I don't know why, he kept running rather than meet Pacquiao toe-to-toe as he said before the fight. Was he just trying to unearn his $1.67 millions (vs. Pacquiao's $25 million). It reminds me of de la Hoya. De la Hoya just kept on covering himself up, too. I watched him fight; he doesn't fight that way. I will not be surprised if Mayweather will finally accept the challenge of Pacquiao and a victory, too.

The Communist Chinese & Westerners were able to expose the naked stupidity, inferior education & corrupt practices of Filipino politicians when they converted their obsolete transportation system into modern transportation network. The Communist Chinese, Europeans, etc. did not embrace the simplistic primitive mentality of the corrupt Filipino policy makers [the products of natural elitist education kuno & talent to steal public funds] that overpopulation will not solve traffic congestion. You don't need to be a natural political thief & an ignorant economic professor at Ateneo (see former President Arroyo) to understand why the Australians, Chinese, etc. are digging deeply underneath their cities to improve the efficiency, flexibility & global competitiveness of their populated cities.

I thought I can see the rebuttals I made but unfortunately it was not released. One of the comments I made was, I am an ardent supporter of Sen. Jinggoy P. Ejercito. I also stated [someone] cannot give details on the tax slips I mentioned from Revenue Canada. I explained the ANATOMY relative to the density of the brain tissue INSIDE the cranial cavity that I've said and NOT THE STUPID, NONSENSE "cavernous cavity" which is NON-EXISTENT & the wayward definition that's in the brain of HMS. BTW, Benhur Luy added a code name to Sen. Jinggoy as "Cong. Biazon" besides "Anak", "Sexy". CoA DID NOT FIND SEN. JINGGOY P. EJERCITO RECEIVED KICKBACKS FROM HIS PDAF.

In the news: "Carpio: No Guarantee U.S. Will Aid PH In China Sea Row". They (PH) just realized it now? I've been posting that for a very long time. The U.S. will feed to China its human and equipment to China if the conflict is "ligit". As the news report says, the Kanos said in Scarborough shoal, "it is not in the agreement". Besides, "hindi puweding mamangka ang U.S. sa dalawang ilog!". At hindi lang naman sabitan ng sombrero ang ulo ng mga Kano lawmakers.

LET'S KEEP IT CIVIL. There are bloggers who, for some reason, not only display their complicated and incomprehensible thought process and information. They also mock and jeer the other bloggers for not "knowing" and seeing things their way using unkind words such as "ignorant" & "stupid". It also appears that these bloggers have a class hatred for people they deem better educated & bred than they. I appeal to PNL to edit the unkind words of these people because it is not fair to the decent bloggers. Responding to ill-mannered bloggers is like getting into a fight with a street person. I invite PNL & my fellow bloggers to comment on this.

This is a Forum about our native country where the bloggers mind their manners. PNL is trying to keep everything civil but every now & then a few slip through the cracks. We are here to discuss and put forward our ideas. In here WE AGREE TO DISAGREE. Using mockery and crude language only serve to distract us from making an honest point. Having said that and having appealed to PNL to do its part to preserve the civil atmosphere in this Forum, I will have no other alternative but to respond in kind to any rudeness, mockery and disrespect shown to me. If there are bloggers whose sole purpose is to denigrate their fellow bloggers they could find other Forums about Filipinos in the Internet where the language is enough to turn their stomach over. I'm sure they would feel at home in such Forums.

Hmanga man ang milyong Pilipinos kay Pacquiao dahil sa pagiging mahusay na boksingero, hindi ibig sabihin, iisipin ni Pacquiao na iboboto na sya ng mga Pilipinong fans nya sa boxing. Iba ng usapan kung kakandidato syang presidente. Kokonti na pakiwari ko ang tangang botante sa panahon ngayon. Mabango lang si Pacquiao dahil sikat pero pag ang paguusapan ay pagpresidente nya, tiyak bagsak na ang kayabangan. Uupo nga ang mga ambisyosong walang alam sa mga legalidad sa pagpapatakbo pero ang magmamaneobra ng lahat ay Chavit Singson, Dionisia, at iba pang for hire na tulungan sa Malacanang.

To the blogger who hates Catholic school graduates. Let me tell you something. Every time you verbally abuse those people you look so UNEDUCATED.

OFF TOPIC. I am somewhat disturbed by these Protests and Demonstrations about the Ferguson Incident. It's beginning to look like the demonstrations in the 60s against the Vietnam War. This incident in Ferguson started because the deceased was walking in the middle of the road and was questioned by the cop (Darren Wilson). Is that wrong? Since when did walking in the middle of the road allowed? The cop killed the man in self-defense in the performance of his duties. So what gives? Those demonstrators have their priorities mixed up. A cop was doing his job. He should be commended, not condemned. I also find it disturbing that not one group or organization are standing behind the cop.

You have a chaotic mind. Just be specific, straight-forward and simplify your statement so it will make sense who you are talking about. If you are talking about Jinggoy or me or someone else make it sensible. I suggest PNL expose the poster's name instead of "someone" so proper and deliberate responses can be delivered and addressed to. Be transparent.

November 27, 2014 Thanksgiving Day in Flour-Flower City and it is snowing lightly. Even with 2 inches on the ground already, that's about it. There will be no "don't be Buffaloed" for F-F City.

There is something to be thankful about for this season. We had been blessed with the good fortune of good health. We had been provided with a platform to express our thoughts and personal views on a lot of issues that affect our lives both directly and indirectly. HAPPY TURKEY DAY!

China executes Filipino drug mules. Chinese nationals do more than that. They manufacture illicit drugs for local and export use. If death penalty could never be reinstituted, these manufacturers should be made to ingest, inhale or inject their own products until they become addicts; then be sent back to China.

Binay is still living in the world of make believe, that he will become president. More than a year of negative information will change the class C,D, and E elements perception of Binay. For now the erosion of confidence is evident. It is tanking and public speeches without corresponding Q & A will never reverse that.

News: US Court rules against the appeal of the Marcoses against a Contempt award against them & affirmed penalties to the tune of US343.6M. This means that the Marcoses will have to shell out this amount on top of the US2B judgement entered against them for human rights violation in 1995. The contempt award was for their arrogance in ignoring the 1995 decision and trying to move their attachacheable properties in the US. This is how US Courts operate. Despite some imperfections, by & large Justice is served. BAKIT ITO HINDI MAGAWA SA PINAS? Filipinos would have a better country if judgments such as this are handed down routinely regardless of the parties involved.

Another GOOD News: Cojuangco loses "Coconut Case". The shares of stock belongs to the govt. said the SC, not Cojuangco. The Supreme Court of late had been handing down decisions favorable to the people. I can only hope that this is the beginning of true social justice. Other Marcos cronies should also be divested go their ill-gotten wealth. It may be too late for that. But better late than never.

If you have notice the Office of the Ombudsman has been very busy lately handing down indictments for graft and corruption. I do not remember a time in the PHL where so many govt. officials were being called to account for misdeeds. And the respondents are from all over, not just a particular group. I can only hope for convictions but the fact that these people are being indicted AT ALL is a welcome development. Which brings us to the topic of Aquino's successor. All these efforts of the Ombudsman will all be for NAUGHT if the Filipinos elect a crook to succeed Aquino. THAT they have to be made aware of.

12 Million Metro Manila Commuters Stuck in Gridlock Hell

For much of the last month, my Facebook friends in Metro Manila have been posting comments lamenting their helplessness at being condemned to spend a great portion of what is left of their productive lives stuck in hours of traffic with no hope in sight. They now appreciate why Dan Brown described Manila in his book, Inferno, as “the gates of hell” specifically referring to its “six-hour traffic jams (and) suffocating pollution”.

Why Filipino-Americans Need to Vote Democratic on November 4

Since 1620 when the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, people the world over have migrated to America in search of a better life. Filipinos are no exception. In the '70s and '80s Filipinos who were able to, left for the U.S. to escape the tyranny of the Marcos regime; today they leave is to escape the poverty and the lack of opportunity in their homeland. Whatever the reason, Filipino migrants quickly shed their old habits and attitudes and embraced American culture. Published 10/30/2014
Both United States and Philippine Governments to Blame for Death of Jeffery "Jennifer" Laude

The United States and Philippine governments share the blame for the tragedy. Two young lives needlessly destroyed: the first, a young Filipino transgender found strangled inside a motel bathroom; the second a teenaged American serviceman now accused of murder. Published 10/19/2014
Death of Filipino Transgender 'Jennifer' Laude Was Totally Preventable

The evening for the young US Marine and his Filipino date "Jennifer" began at the Ambyanz Disco Bar in Subic Bay, Olongapo and ended shortly before midnight at the Celzone Lodge where "Jennifer's" lifeless body was found leaning against the toilet bowl. Jennifer, it turns out was actually not originally a "she" but a "he." A Filipino transgender, Jeffrey Laude, 26, began calling himself "Jennifer" after medical procedures made him look more female than male. Published 10/14/2014
Sorry Mr. President But PNP Chief Alan Purisima Has to Go

What’s with Philippine civil servants these days? It seems that you can stick all their pictures on a wall; throw a dart; and whoever’s photo it land on, that person can be successfully prosecuted for graft. It is unbelievable how pervasive and widespread corruption has become. We go from one corruption scandal to the next and there seems to be no end in sight. Published 10/07/2014
Tear Down the Torre de Manila Building Being Built Behind the Rizal Monument?

According to the developer’s website, “Torre de Manila, DMCI Homes’ newest one-tower condominium, is an exclusive residential community right in the heart of the city.” As of this writing, the 49-story edifice is about halfway complete. But as it continues to rise, so too do the howls of protest from an eclectic collection of groups and individuals who want it torn down. Why? Torre de Manila will permanently mar the skyline behind the Rizal Monument. Published 10/01/2014
How Ferdinand Marcos’s Martial Law Continues Hurting Filipinos to This Day

On the evening of September 23, 1972, two days after it had taken effect, Ferdinand Marcos announced via live television from Malacañang Palace that he had placed the Philippines under Martial Law. It was a calculated move by a devious politician to keep himself in power beyond what the Constitution allowed. A staged ambush attempt against his Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile was the main excuse Marcos (or “Macoy” as he was deridingly referred to back then) used to strip Filipinos of all their constitutional rights. With that, the diminutive Ilocano from the backwaters of Batac, Ilocos Norte became the despotic dictator for over a decade. Published 09/23/2014
Jejomar Binay Should Never Become President of the Philippines

In our July 25th editorial we asked if Vice President Jejomar Binay should be the next president of the Philippines. In this editorial we arrive at the definitive conclusion that that Binay should not be elected president. Since our last editorial, more witnesses have come forward with more allegations against the embattled Vice President. But our decision not to support Binay’s presidential bid is based on irrefutable public acts that in our opinion disqualify him from the presidency. Published 09/16/2014
