first I lick my upper lip
in compliance with the pleasure trip
then the music begins to thrill
no longer does silence my heart kill
back and forth with the melody
the strict rhythmical odyssey
like an aesthetic enchant
alas, merely a sugary deviant
acid conflagating attention-deficit
only five milligrams per reincit
otherwise la fille francais decay
when le beau monde ensures a continental crossway
it is in a free fall toward the skies
a plethora slowly whispering goodbyes
assuring an ethereal panacea
and existence is a preconceived idea
Thou shall not kill. Thou shall not commit adultery. Don’t eat pork. I’m sorry, what was that last one? Don’t eat pork. God has spoken. Is it that the word of God or is that pigs trying to outsmart everybody? – Jon Stewert

When I found this quote, I knew it had to come here. It is as much criticism towards Islam as to the whole concept of belief in religion. Islam has many fine, strong and well made points, yet some seems to be a bit out of order.
I know the story behind the whole ‘Don’t eat pork’ thing. The pigs in the seventh century was sick and unhealthy, so it was suggested that people didn’t eat pork. Unfortunately, to the dissatisfaction of Muslims, they haven’t realised that pigs are edible now.
It also critise how religious believers tend to believe in anything, regardless of how stupid it may seem. Science then was idiotically stupid, while science now actually confirms religion.

This is one of my absolutte favourite quotes in all time. It’s relatively simple to understand and interpret. It’s a comment, logical argument against capital punishment and war.
I think of the Iraq war: One of the reasons President George W. Bush Jr. declared war on Saddam Hussein was that he was murdering his own people, the Iraqi. I tend to believe that the argument is anti-american in every way as the USA is famous for it’s warmongering, loose guncontrol and high level of capital punishment.
