The Gravity Of Beliefs

April 1, 2022



Beliefs are a lot like gravity

If you are not careful
They can bring you down

An invisible intangible energy
You know you have them, but
Can not explain how they work

It takes tremendous force
To overcome their pull
Regardless, you are likely
To return to them anyway

Though unlike gravity, beliefs
Are a learned phenomenon
As in accepting 2 + 2 = 4
Through repetition & memorization

Or does 2 + 2 = 5 yet?
Best check my Orwellian calendar.

Beliefs are as intangible
As holding your breath
In open palms
Yet people cling to them
Like it is their last one

I know I have used the following, before
However it is the most clear and concise
Apt description of defining beliefs beyond
The definition of belief itself

“I just think it is interesting to see how people act on their beliefs you know what I mean.

Because your beliefs are just that, they are just how you were taught and raised. That doesn’t make them real.”

– Bill Hicks

“Belief :

A state or “habit” of mind in which
Trust or confidence is placed in some
Person or thing”

– M-W.com

Beliefs are not even fantasy given form
They are abstractions based on rumors

Collective beliefs are nothing more than
Shared perceptions of indoctrinated opinions
Experienced as a group hallucination and still

If you isolated members of that group, have

Them explain their version of the similar belief
You would find they would not match

I’m guessing on a percentile accuracy scale
They would not even be close to the same

The cool part about beliefs, is their quick
Convenience and mushy malleability

Especially when they surround that
Other invisible force known as God
Twice the fun with half the credibility

“The God excuse.

The last refuge of a man with no answers and no argument, it came from god.

Anything we can’t describe, must have come from God.”

George Carlin

You hear about it all the time
Usually after a personal tragedy
Or a collective calamity in which
Some people die and some do not

(Thank God, Tom survived the airplane crash)

“Let’s just think about this for a minute”

– Bill Hicks

Before realizing what an empty cliché it is.

Starting of course with God. Not to worry, though, “he” can handle any criticism that this post could possibly dole out.

God, the “belief” in an all powerful, invisible Santa Clause caricature type dude. Floating in a cloud, on a golden throne, watching everything, his global genocidal flood leftover survivors are up to.

When not preparing and planning for some Armageddon battle, “he” “should” already know the outcome of……….DUH!

Pulling and slacking more strings, than a band of puppeteers putting on a side show.

God sees out of the corner of his eye, an airplane descending rapidly (due to gravity and faulty wiring) just in “time”. (which does not exist.) To save Tom and a few others.

The dissonance in the belief, that an APAKALOBCOL, (All Powerful All Knowing All Loving Omniscient Being Creator Of Life) could save Tom and some others is contrary to the contemplation that God could have prevented the whole plane crash in the first place. Ooopsie.

WTF is so important about Tom?

“You got me runnin’, goin’ out of my mind
You got me thinkin’ that I’m wastin’ my time

Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more
Before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down”

– Jeff Lynn


“Now, believe is a word that I have a serious problem with, right, because it has a “Lie” in the middle.

“DNA” Descendant Now Ancestor

– John Trudell


“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

– Angelo Devlin

Could I possibly believe
That different glasses
Are going to change
My beliefs ??????????
