my review of the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast

This is satire. No really.

My biggest frustration with life and believing in an omnipotent being (and I don’t even know why I am getting into this, because this mind-fuck has disturbed me ever since – and I never wish anyone else to think about stuff like this, it takes away from the enjoyment of life) is the social aspect of life. OK there is this obvious superiority in the regards to a human’s social and economic class, there is this developmental complex that is implemented in everyone’s mind in regards to these certain characteristics. So essentially we are weighted into this hierarchy that to me is best related to the more primitive animal kingdom, the whole predator and prey. Now of course we are in a more civilized world and it is not to be imagined in the sense of a lion butchering a zebra for example. So I take this into perspective when trying to implement the ideas of religion in my life and we have these two forces fighting. In the case of Christianity do we suppose this animalistic side of life in the regard of evil, and a birth right of Satan  or did God create us in this way that is primitive and meant to be understood as such? or do we throw out this whole idea of a God and creator and just amount this existence as a simple “primordial slime” and the evolution of humanity came about.

I get these thoughts and ideas in my mind mainly from social networking sites and watching how people interact and relate that come from all different backgrounds and walks of life. We have Christians that relate with beating somebody in the face with a chair, because in their minds the said person lacks the required amount of common sense that they think they should have. And then I think in my mind, well this person is a self proclaimed christian, so he think that his Christianity is OK with the idea of beating up people who have less sense than them with a chair? this doesn’t sound like the behavior that Jesus preached to His disciples. But you see Christianity is conformed by the leaders in the church, its not conformed by the believer’s personal relationship with God and the bible, it is dictated by the interpretations of the church. Just watch and observe how people act.

Another example is “believers” who live a lifestyle that is totally contrary to the christian faith, but they believe and expect a  comfortable spot reserved for them in heaven when they die. It’s illogical to think this way.

Or maybe we have taken the scriptures too seriously. And we are to be meek and humble and try to live life the best we possibly can, and believe in God no matter how hypocritical we appear to those around us. Maybe this evident standard that I have in my mind is the expected standard that I should be living by, and I should no conform. Or possibly it is all bullshit. I think I will be battle with this for the rest of my life.

If we are humans that are nothing more than evolved product of a lesser more primitive ancestor, than the morality we have is nothing more than the fear of punishment for ill behavior. If we are to think that way, than the human existence is a scary place. I choose to refuse that idea, no matter how ignorant I sound. I do believe there is a spiritual aspect to life. I just want to be more involved in the spiritual.
