Buddhism is Bullshit – Part III
Who has the largest penis among primates? Is it the big, hairy gorilla? No. It’s the penis of the human male. It is only among humans that female orgasm is present. Only human female has sexy stuff on their chest (other primates have breasts. But they don’t work as secondary sexual organs). I can go on and on like this. My point is, Homo sapiens sapiens is the sexiest species alive.
Humans really like having sex, just like other animals. They also are violent when they need to be, and made in such a way that makes it possible for him to eat meat. These are precisely the thing that Buddhism tells them not to do.
We are human because we moved from jungles to open plains. We did it because we had to. Those who remained in the jungles evolved into great apes like chimpanzees and gorillas. Their population has always been shrinking.
In the open plains, there were no fruit to eat, and our digestive system couldn’t handle grass. We had to depend on roots of some plants.
Yet even at that time, we could digest meat because we’d been eating insects for a long long time. We realised in the open plains that we had to hunt. There was absolutely no other option.
In the open plains however, there were already carnivores (big cats and wolves) who were stronger and faster than us. They were specialised to killing. We couldn’t compete with them. So we had to stand up with two legs and make tools and hold weapons. We did this. These were the early stages of the creatures who would later create such amazing things like pyramids and quantum physics, and bullshit like religion.
Now here’s the thing. What happened to those early humans who killed, committed incest, raped, and did so many fucked up things because they didn’t know it was wrong? Did they go to hell? What about other animals? Lions kill. Rape is common among elephants. Primates like our ancestors were sexually active all the time and had sex all the time with different partners. Did they go to hell?
Most buddhists would say they wouldn’t go to hell because they didn’t do it was wrong. But then it begs the question, if doing something fucked up is okay if you don’t know it’s fucked up, then what about good stuff you do? Certainly they won’t earn you good Karma because you don’t know what you’re doing is good.
So how do animals become humans? Animals don’t have moral. The only species who has morals is Homo sapiens sapiens and he created morals only few thousand years ago. For 4.5 billion years there has been no such thing as morals on planet earth. When animals do fucked up things, they don’t know they’re wrong. When they do good things, they don’t know they’re good. So how do they become human?
It’s important that according to Buddhism, animals do become humans and it’s said to be very difficult. Buddha was many animals in his previous lives.
Also it’s important to note that the animals we see, like elephants, monkeys, and lions, are modern animals and not our ancestors. Buddha was an elephant a long long time a ago. There’s no way elephants could exist back then. He was also human a long long time ago and there’s no way of that happening either.
You cannot say that these stories are just symbolic and that Buddha never was an elephant. Then you would also have to say King Vessanthara never existed.
Now one could say, world isn’t just planet earth. I’ll come to that in the next article.
