I Believe / I Do Not Believe

For today’s prompt, tell us three things that you believe in your heart to be true. Tell us three things you believe in your heart to be false.

I believe these to be true (but I do not have any proof on them but these are things that I wish to be true, hopefully)

  1. In the future humankind will become one without any borders, race, colour, creed, ethnicity or any other things that separate them. Every human being will work for the betterment of the human race and our animal friend and will use that as an end goal.
  2. We will find and contact intelligent life out there in the universe. All those planets and moons and no life – c’mon; don’t tell me that you are that arrogant enough to think that!
  3. All these stupid religions will eventually die out and humankind will drink beer and collectively go “What the fuck were our ancestors thinking?”

I believe these to be false (but I do not have any proof on them so I will not claim with any degree of finality)

  1. There is no/are no gods. Perhaps some extremely advanced (technologically and/or evolutionary) races of aliens beings.
  2. All human beings (and all living things) must eventually die, no matter how much you try and extend the life. Fuck off, we don’t know for sure so I’m sticking with “maybe we haven’t explored it enough yet!”
  3. That you cannot eat just one chip. I’ve done it!

Would You Stay If She Promised You Heaven?

Here is Fleetwood Mac performing Rhiannon live in 1976. Singer / songwriter Stevie Nicks discovered Rhiannon through a novel called Triad, by Mary Leader. The novel is about a woman named Branwen, who is possessed by another woman named Rhiannon. There is mention of the Welsh legend of Rhiannon in the novel, but the characters in the novel bear little resemblance to their original Welsh namesakes (both Rhiannon and  Branwen  are major female characters in the medieval Welsh prose tales of the Mabinogion).

Nicks bought the novel in an airport just before a long flight and thought the name was so pretty that she wanted to write something about a girl named Rhiannon. She wrote “Rhiannon” in 1974, three months before joining Fleetwood Mac, and has claimed that it took 10 minutes to write. After writing the song, Nicks learned that Rhiannon originated from a Welsh goddess, and was amazed that the haunting song lyrics applied to the Welsh Rhiannon as well.

A stripped down vocals & piano version & the original version were featured in the 3rd season of American Horror Story aka Coven.
