Religion…the Scourge of Civilization

In My Opinion…..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As a friend said to me, “When I hear people go into this insipid pandering , who think they are garnering favor with God, all I can see in my mind is God up in heaven…His fingers plugging His ears and yelling…”will you please shut up!”. I quite agree.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is my considered opinion that religion, in all its various forms and practices, has been the greatest detriment to mankind. We hate, murder, target, marginalize, and otherwise destroy anyone who dares to believe anything other that what we profess to believe. Always cloaked in the words of some supposed “messiah”, some ethereal being tied to claimed divine lineage, we have shed rivers of blood and caused untold misery throughout history and the world.

Faith in God has nothing to do with religion. Faith and religion are two diametrically opposed lines of thinking and belief. God exists quite well on his own; constant, loving, forgiving. Religion on the other hand, relies on a false system of man made beliefs, opinions, biases and always contains claims about how God centered the faith of choice is. But religion, just as politics, must always provide you with an adversary who is claimed to want to kill you and harm you, so you must go harm and kill them first. Without this constantly changing enemy, your church would fall apart. That common enemy, (most often the “devil”,) is the reason for all your woes. It couldn’t possibly be that you just made a mistake, or things just didn’t happen the way you intended. No, it must be this evil entity is plotting against you. Or it is some other religious faction that represents some coming threat to you. The same is true in politics. You are being played.

Religion is of men: Faith is of God.

One of the most bizarre claims made by religions is the claim that the Holy Trinity is made up of the Father, the Son, and some ghost?? And if this is true…wouldn’t we all have a penis? This combination, if true, would have heralded the end of humanity. Two male figures and a ghost would not reproduce anything. Personally, I believe the Holy Trinity, should one actually exist, would more likely be comprised of The Father, The Mother and The Child. LIFE!! But that would mean actually acknowledging the female in the creation of humanity! But if we recognized that we would have to elevate women to their proper place in the scheme of things and that by necessity would end their being used as servants and second class beings. Oh! What would we men do?? If we can’t relegate women to a class underneath us, if we can’t bag them, beat them use and abuse them and then force them to wait on us and do our bidding…oh! The horror of that thought!! More

A THREAT TO ALL HUMANITY

Guess how many pastors joined together to oppose the Patriot Act. You’re looking at him, pal. In my town, it was me and the ACLU that stood in opposition to the passage of the Patriot Act. You read it right: the “conservative” Chuck Baldwin and the “liberal” ACLU. So much for labels. In fact, when it comes to Big Brother and the Warfare State, labels mean absolutely nothing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When it comes to constitutional government, the whole left-right, conservative-liberal, Republican-Democrat, even Christian-secular paradigms are, for the most part, an illusion. Over most of the last century, conservatives and liberals, Republicans and Democrats, and Christians and secularists have collectively jettisoned constitutional government in favor of a Welfare State, a Warfare State, a Nanny State, and a Police State.

So-called conservative Republicans like to talk about “limited government,” but in reality Republican presidential administrations and Congresses have equaled or sometimes even surpassed Democrats in exploding the size and scope of government. Likewise, liberal Democrats like to talk about ending foreign wars and so-called free-trade deals that favor international corporations, but in reality Democrat presidential administrations and Congresses have done nothing to bring the troops home or dismantle job-killing “free-trade” deals. After all of the campaign rhetoric, both major parties in Washington, D.C., have become nothing more than water boys for the 1 percent donor class. More

Ancient Graffiti, the Search for Atlantis, and the Internet’s Light

I stumbled across a footnote for the Great Atlantis Search in an old Arizona Highways article (Circa 1940s)—“Ancient Manuscripts on American Stone” by William Coxon—one afternoon while looking for something to read in a waiting room in Houston, Texas.  
 
Coxon, a photographer and archaeologist who died in Arizona in 1963, traveled to Mexico in the late Thirties and stopped by the Mazatlan tourist information center to gather information for a presentation for the locals when he returned home. While there, he encountered Don Manuel, an archaeologist and Aztec who researched ancient history; his in particular. Finding out Coxon was from Arizona, he asked him to take some pictures of certain petroglyphs there when he got home and send them to him and, if he would come by his office the following day, they would talk about it. 

Coxon wrote he wasn’t sure what petroglyphs Don Manuel was talking about, and so borrowed some information at the hotel where he was staying. The next day he met with Manuel and told him he was sure there were no petroglyphs in Arizona. It was then Manuel relayed to him his Aztec legend: 

“. . . according to the legends of my ancestors, the Nahuatl tribes came to this continent from Atlantis, and crossed overland to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake. Later, they migrated from there to the Valley of the River Gila, and established their first capital. After living there several centuries, they migrated onto the Mexican Plateau. You will find their petroglyphs in Arizona.” 

When Coxon returned to his hometown, he made a talk to the Rotary about his trip, spoke of his encounter with Don Manuel, and asked that if anyone had seen petroglyphs of this nature to let him know after the meeting. To his surprise, several men approached and told him where he could find them.

Economic Slavery and International Bankers

I will be seventy in October, and have been living a life shackled to this computer since 2003, and that is responsible for my ever increasing contempt of humanity: because self preservation is supposed to be humanities number one natural instinct.

As anyone with one eye can see, my presupposition must be wrong, as humanity is, and has been in lock step on their way to economic slavery since the International Bankers gained enough power to manipulate government’s world wide.

The effect of them having the power to gain control of the media (News and Entertainment), food, energy, and all of the necessities of life, as we know it, by buying control of the corporations that produce it and the governments who protect them, has produced a society of self centered, pleasure seeking, intellectual midgets, who cannot recognize that the smell of smoke is a warning of death by fire.

After the comfortable life they have enjoyed (in comparison to our ancestors) has been forever taken from them, death by fire may be their choice because they refuse to believe they can change things. More
