In Malaysia at least. It looks like we’re too late for the tours of Hell they did last month but right now for the low low prices of just $61 you can get a tour of Heaven. Sounds like a ridiculous trick you say? Well just listen to the amazing claims from Master Kek Eng Seng. Who has said:
participants could bump into deities, angels and their relatives.
The three hour tour will be held on Oct. 23rd at the Tze Bei Guan Yin Centre. Don’t worry this isn’t just some kind of silly superstition. Kek also said “We do not promote superstition. This is a long-lost tradition which was only brought to light in Malaysia recently.” How can you not be convinced?

Ali told her husband: “Suddenly it came into my mind that I should correct my behaviour towards Allah.
“Then a voice told me ‘if you love Allah you should sacrifice your daughter.”’
She told a doctor she strangled the child and when she was unconscious, she carried her on to the kitchen table where she used the knife to ensure the spirits were exorcised.
As she stabbed the girl, Koranic verses were played in the background on an electronic device, the court heard.
Just in case you missed it, this week we also had the heart breaking story of a 13 year old girl suffocated during an “exorcism”.
Fifty-six-year-old monk Kazuaki Kinoshita and the girl’s 50-year-old father Atsushi Maishigi were accused of what police described as “waterfall service”: strapping the victim Tomomi Maishigi to a chair and dousing her face with water.
News reports said the two men poured water over her as an “exorcism” with the father holding the girl down while the monk chanted sutras.
Miss Maishigi’s mother called an ambulance after her daughter fell unconscious, but it was too late. She was confirmed dead early the next morning.
Anyone want to be next on my list of ridiculous people that say religion doesn’t harm anyone? Sure hope not.

All people deserve respect, but not all ideas do. I don’t respect the idea that a man was born of a virgin, walked on water and rose from the dead. I don’t respect the idea that we should follow a “Prophet” who at the age of 53 had sex with a nine-year old girl, and ordered the murder of whole villages of Jews because they wouldn’t follow him.
I don’t respect the idea that the West Bank was handed to Jews by God and the Palestinians should be bombed or bullied into surrendering it. I don’t respect the idea that we may have lived before as goats, and could live again as woodlice. This is not because of “prejudice” or “ignorance”, but because there is no evidence for these claims. They belong to the childhood of our species, and will in time look as preposterous as believing in Zeus or Thor or Baal.
When you demand “respect”, you are demanding we lie to you. I have too much real respect for you as a human being to engage in that charade.

It’s amazing the things some people will do for their religion. It’s a really interesting read and amazing to think they that they basically committed long and sometimes excruciating suicide in the name of achieving some sort of higher awareness.
