 NOTES OF THE METRIC MONTHS FROM 56 TO 59 ASWW 




OF WHAT IS GOOD

Only the realization of what is good will prevent the combat between evil and evil from continuing forever.

43.SEM-59th Southern Late Lent



GOING THEIR OWN, NORMLESS WAY

The wicked who are a law unto themselves go their own, normless way.

57.NLL-59th Southern Mid-Lent



DISBELIEF

By itself there is nothing wrong with disbelief -- and it is certainly to be preferred to misbelief.

43.SLL-59th Southern Early Lent



STICK AND SKIP

Stick to value and skip both revolution as fashion and restoration as fashion.

54.SEY-59th Southern Equinoctial



HOW LONG IS THE STORY?

How long is the story which covers the whole of religious history, from the creation of supernaturalism to the last supernaturalist judgment?

43.SLL-59th Southern Mid-Yule



OTHER-WORLDLY PHILOSOPHERS

While the major religions continued to feed and force-feed the people of this planet with their Great Stories, other-worldly philosophers claimed that the era of the great stories had drawn to a close. They should have been mute instead of deaf.

57.SEM-59th Southern Early Yule



WRITER OR GHOST-WRITER?

The Model (which is meant to be 'holy' in an inclusive sense) was written by a writer. Sacred Books (which are meant to be 'sacred' in a supernaturalist sense) were written by Ghost-Writers.

52.SMY-59th Equatorial Month



DEEDS AND CREEDS

In a way deeds are, indeed, more important tham creeds. But what we want is good instead of bad deeds and it is precisely the fundamental (nonsymbolic) part of a 'creed' or denominational doctrine we need to distinguish the better deeds from the worse ones.

59.NEY-59th Northern Late Lent



'E OR E

This e  is the letter of emancipation.

41.SEM-59th Northern Mid-Lent



SUBNATIONAL ANTHEM

A so-called 'national' anthem which appeals to religionists, theocentrists or sexists exclusively is not a national anthem but a subnational anthem.

58.NLL-59th Northern Equinoctial



THERE IS NO MIDDLE PATH ...

There is no middle path between egalitarianism and extremism: egalitarianism itself, whether considered radical or not, is the middle path between two actually existing or possible opposite manifestations of extremism.

36.NLY-59th Northern Late Yule



SUSPENSION IN LITERATURE AND IN RELIGION

Literature may demand a temporary suspension of disbelief; religion demands an eternal suspension of reason and common sense.

58.SMY-59th Northern Mid-Yule



ALLOCATING THE TOILETS

It is a mystery to me why traditonalists always start their speeches with allocating the toilets.

40.EQU-59th Northern Early Yule



LET ENDLESS DEBATES LIE

Debates which land us in an infinite sequence of arguments and counterarguments should be left to people who think they are immortal.

36.NEY-58th Southern Late Lent



THE FIRST TWO VICTIMS OF A MONARCHY

The very first victim of a monarchy is relevance; the second truth.

58.NLY-58th Southern Mid-Lent



SAVE AND LOSE FOR THE RIGHT PURPOSE

Whoever desires to save 'er life at all costs, 'e will lose it. But whoever may lose 'er life for the sake of the Norm, 'e will save it.

58.SMY-58th Southern Early Lent



TOTALITARIAN COUNTRIES

There are two types of totalitarian countries: those that are one nation under a Party, and those that are one nation under a God.

40.NML-58th Southern Equinoctial



PRIESTLY CELIBACY AND PENIS ENLARGEMENT

Those searching the Internet will have to suffer The Relevance of Priestly Celibacy and The Truth About Penis Enlargement and many other Truth About's and Relevance of's before they get some relevant and true information about truth and relevance.

58.NLY-58th Southern Mid-Yule



EXCLUDE THE EXCLUSIVE

Trying to include an exclusive attitude or practise makes as little sense as a contradiction in terms. Inclusivism may and must exclude exclusivism.

29.EQU-58th Southern Early Yule



SLIPPERY-SLOPE SUPERNATURALISM

If the slippery-slope argument ever holds, then certainly for those supernaturalists who start with sacrificing truth and relevance for an innocent, comforting belief, but who end up with a false and irrelevant belief which is so stupid or wicked that it destroys humanity and the world.

58.NLY-58th Equatorial Month



EVERYONE'S PIGEON

Peace is everyone's pigeon.

39.SEY-58th Northern Late Lent



RELIGIOUS LICENSE

Religion is a license to lie in existential matters and to discriminate in all.

57.SLL-58th Northern Mid-Lent



GAOLS OR GOALS

Those who see just gaols (jails) for solving society's problems have lost sight of good goals.

38.EQU-58th Northern Equinoctial



SOMETHING SPIRITUAL IN THE WIND

In our time of denominational crisis or anomie there is something spriritual in the wind.
(Etymologically 'spiritual' refers to what relates to breathing or wind, while 'in the wind' also means 'about to happen'.)

43.NEM-58th Northern Late Yule



BOTH INCLUSIVENESS AND INCLUSIVITY

Some consider the word inclusivity wrong or unknown. But inclusivity is actually used by native speakers, and it is inconsistent, if not ridiculous, to recognize exclusivity beside exclusiveness, neutrality beside neutralness and even erosivity beside erosiveness, while not accepting inclusivity as a variant beside inclusiveness.

57.SEM-58th Northern Mid-Yule



REVERENCE BOOKS

Dictionaries and encyclopedias with a religious bias should be grouped together under the heading of reverence books.

41.NMY-58th Northern Early Yule



MAY THE BALANCED FAMILY PRESERVE US

The family deserves approval and support where it contributes to the preservation and well-being of humanity and the environment; it calls for disapproval and countermeasures where it contributes to overpopulation and to the destruction of humanity and the environment.

57.SEM-57th Southern Late Lent



VENOM VERSUS VALUE

Not only is fact often stranger than fiction, but also venom is often stronger than value.

40.SEL-57th Southern Mid-Lent



REALITY IS NOT A LANGUAGE

Reality is not a language, in which something turns good and right and true as soon as enough people pronounce, spell or say it the wrong way.

57.EQU-57th Southern Early Lent



DICTATORSHIPS

A political dictatorship is a horror, a religious dictatorship a hell on earth.

39.SMY-57th Southern Equinoctial



THE NORM'S ABOVE ALL

Whatever or whoever may be great, or called 'great', the Norm, by which all shall be judged, is over everything and stands above all. So, let these words reverberate in the ears of those who try to force others to submit to real or imaginary greatness instead of value: 'The Norm's above all, the norms above all'.

57.NLL-57th Southern Mid-Yule



IMMORTAL SOULS

If it is true that there is a soul and that only its rational part is immortal, as some philosophers and religious ideologists have professed, then the belief in immortal souls must die out in the end.

39.NLL-57th Southern Early Yule



RENDER UNTO THE PERSON ...

Render unto the person the things, natural and cultural, that are the person's.

42.SLL-57th Equatorial Month



AUTHORITARIAN MONSTERS, DIVINE AND NONDIVINE

A general who orders a soldier to kill 'imself in order to prove the former's authority and the latter's love and loyalty is a monster. And so is a god who orders a man to kill his only son for that reason.

57.NMY-57th Northern Late Lent



RELEVANCE WILL BE IN

Relevance will be in eventually, even if it takes a long time.

57.NMY-57th Northern Mid-Lent



OBEDIENCE NO EXCUSE FOR CRIMES

Whatever theocentrists believe to be religious duties, obedience to orders is no excuse for crimes.

42.NLL-57th Northern Equinoctial



AUTHORITY THE LAW, VALUES THE NORM

Authority makes the Law: what is prescribed and forbidden.
Values make the Norm: what is good, just, right and praiseworthy.

56.SLL-57th Northern Late Yule



MAKING GOD

Only those who trust in monotheist(ic) dictionaries can get children by making God.

40.NEY-57th Northern Mid-Yule



THE FREE MARKET

Morally speaking, and perhaps also in other senses, there is nothing against the free market system, that is, the market in which people freely exchange goods which they morally own.

56.SEM-57th Northern Early Yule



AN ARBITRARY EXAMPLE, OR NOT

An example is only arbitrary if it is one example, that is, unique; two or more examples in the same area are never arbitrary.

36.NLL-56th Southern Late Lent



DÉJÀ CRU

Most religious belief, which was, perhaps, civil or interesting centuries or millenniums ago, has now become déjà cru.
(Literally déjà cru means already believed and already rude/raw/blunt; cp. déjà vu, already seen: common place, so familiar as to be uninteresting; as a noun: feeling that one has seen or heard something before, something overly or unpleasantly familiar.)

56.NML-56th Southern Mid-Lent



COGNITIVE RELATIVISM

According to cognitive relativists the belief that apples fall off trees is no more plausible or better than the belief that apples fly up to trees.

44.SML-56th Southern Early Lent



THEOLOGY NOR PATHEOLOGY

The state should spend as little public money on the study of theology as on the study of patheology.

37.NLY-56th Southern Equinoctial



THE ALMIGHTY POWERLESS

Everyone who is completely powerless with regard to world events is so, because 'e chooses to be completely powerless. Together the powerless are almighty.

35.SLL-56th Southern Mid-Yule



THE THEODEMONICAL LORD

"He forms the light and creates darkness. He makes peace and creates evil. He, the theodemonical Lord, does all those things."

52.SEY-56th Southern Early Yule



THE VIOLATION OF TRUTH ON BOTH SIDES

Supernaturalist promises or illusions may give people pleasure, perhaps as much pleasure as the pain they suffer from supernaturalist threats and delusions, while truth is violated on both sides.

52.NMY-56th Equatorial Month



WHAT WILL STOP THE WHEEL?

The wheel of the new Norm has been put in motion and only total neutrality will stop it.

54.NLY-56th Northern Late Lent



NEPOTISM

The bad thing about a republic is that nepotism may occur in it; the bad thing about a monarchy is that nepotism forms an integral part of it.

53.NLL-56th Northern Mid-Lent



IT'S IN THEIR BONES

Creationists can't be cured of their supernaturalism; it's in their bones.

41.SML-56th Northern Equinoctial



THE HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY'S PAST

The usual format in which the history of philosophy has been presented is that of a fashion show of philosophers, highly colored by all those thinkers whose fame is continuously perpetuated, altho their exceptional erudition is but too often corrupted or impaired by a philosophizing that is neither conscientious nor sensible.

33.SMY-56th Northern Late Yule



"ARE YOU HAPPY?"

"Are you happy?" "No, my situation has been good for a long time now."

41.SEL-56th Northern Mid-Yule



IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

Worldwide-Webbers are going global: it's only a matter of (Metric) time.
