Blame

I stumbled upon the video of Nergal (frontman of the legendary Polish black/death metal band Behemoth) destroying the Bible on stage.

“They call this book holy. I dare not agree. To me, it is the source of all hypocrisy and the worst evil that man can do to one another.”

This is obviously done more for show than anything else, although I suspect Nergal really does believe what he says. Anyway, what caught my attention here was him calling the Bible the source of all hypocrisy and the worst evil.

Looking at Reddit and Youtube comments, apparently there are plenty of people who really do believe this.

Of course it’s easier to believe that a large part of evil in this world comes from a few specific sources – religions, for example – and that removing them would make the world a better place, instead of accepting that it is man himself who is the source of hypocrisy and evil, and that everything else is just pretext for those actions?

Excellent band though.

Motivation

I’ve come to believe that there is no magical method that will somehow make you do things you don’t want to do. You will simply have to ignore the fact that you don’t want to, and get stuff done.

And yes, once you get started it will suck, but again, that doesn’t really matter.
