“Question with boldness even the existence of a God: because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.” Thomas Jefferson
“The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” Albert Einstein
“Most men come to enlightenment through adversity. A wise man comes by way of attraction.” Sk1951
As a life time seeker of truth I follow the path of the Gnostic. I went through my anger at god and the pious over 25 years ago. Today I see the faithful and religious as a horribly abused people. To have your faith and trust abused causes the worst kind of rebellion as we see going on around the world. The back lash is that of an abused child growing up to be an abuser. I am supportive of the Atheist in that they are attempting to free themselves from religious bondage abuse and the lies. My deep fear is that this is only yet another reason to hate and continue on in the same format as the sanctimonious, this being the first of yet another 2000 years of war. This all started with the true and real fact that we are spiritual by nature and man’s attempt to understand this was twisted into controlling factions that invented gods. These gods were of protection and war and some were prayed to out of fear. Leaders claiming powers along with the gods, control people through fear and genocide. The message is one of love but this is not the reality of it. Spirit is and always will be a part of us. I hope for the day that we can come to realize the importance and peaceful nature and self-governing principals that is true Spirit. Not a prayer to anyone or anything…just a hope for all of us. But for now I guess the hate must continue.
To any Christian God believer: If a person truly wants to stop Islam they must also stop our three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Muslimism that were extrapolated from King Josiah’s 642BC tribal propaganda. The God of Abraham was an invented fairytale and is known as the first 12 books of the Old Testament. EVERY known God based religion is founded on King Josiah’s fairytale. Each religion of past and present professes 1. To be of peace (ya right) 2. Believes in racist supremacy of its people (very true). 3. Believes in racist genocidal war (even more true). Genocidal war has been proven over and over again by every religious sect most notably the Christian Catholic believers. Hitler based his war on Arian supremacy, first claimed in 320AD. Hitler studied under the tutelage of the Catholic church (that supported Hitler) and Mohammad’s Koran (written from the Christian bible) Muslim church (that supported Hitler). Hitler learned genocide from the professionals…the Christians. Any person that professes a belief in a Christian god or religion also believes in race genocide. If you are a Christian than…there is nothing wrong with the Islamic faith because it is totally based on Christian principles that was based and written from the Christian bible. Islam is just as faithful to a Christian God as the Catholics were when they were raining supreme and killing in the millions. Learn and know your own faith and bible before casting disparaging remarks against another faith that comes from the very same bible that you believe in.
I think we are born of Spirit and are in awe of life the second we open our eyes. The wonder never stops as we grow. We continue to develop our Spirit awareness as we mature. All the unexplainable powers of Love and Conscience are of Spirit (which also is unexplainable). These powers were lumped into what is commonly called God today. The problem is that attempts to use logic to understand or explain eventually destroys it because: Anything that people cannot explain or understand is discounted as none existent. Many turn to none-belief: so they can understand and make sense of it: this making sense of the none-sense through none-belief. This the stuff agnostics and atheist are made of. Even though we ALL have experienced Spirit powers and know they exist most choose to believe in fairy tales instead of the true and real source. Realization and acceptance is the only way to come in contact with your Spirit, logic will not work. Spirit is in you and always has been. It never changes. It is constant. When Spirit is combined with flesh it creates a Soul. A human soul creates/manifests all the emotions humans experience. But emotions are not Spirit powers. Emotions are bound within and Spirit is everywhere inside and outside of us. It is the Universal Mind that is Spirit that we all share identically. Confusing Spirit with gods is what is creating all the problems and misunderstandings. These misunderstandings created the church and religiosity. Morality is a god thing, not of Spirit. Spirit asks for nothing and has no way to ask for anything and has no way to control anything. Spirit wants nothing from anyone. Spirit is only about goodness. Goodness is about happiness, joy, peace, harmony, creation and rebirth. From the early realization of Spirit modern man created gods: to try and explain these powers: because a god can be explained and understood and makes more sense than trying to understand Spirit.
Man’s gods look like man…we are an image of god.
An image is imaginary and we imagine god to create god.
All man’s imaginary gods are a creation image in the mind.
Therefor: if we as humans: are an image of imagination…than we…are also imaginary and so is all of creation.
This is where logic takes us. If you can explain or understand anything…it is not of Spirit. Where there is no explanation, understanding or logic: where there is only realization and acceptance…you have found TRUE Spirit.
Creation made of Spirit IS an image of Spirit. Spirit image IS true reality. The image man creates is not. Man is a builder and inventor…not a creator. Here we are getting closer to the truth which is impossible for us to understand and will never be explained with logic.
Imaginary gods and imaginary people have created this horrible imaginary religiosity gods controlled world we are living in. But we know god is not controlling anything…only people are controlling through their imagination and imagery of god. Hell on earth is all we truly have created for ourselves and the gods of hate and bigotry are very happy. This is not the place Spirit creates for the Universe to live in. Man created this hell on earth with imaginary logic and people live in this religiosity world through acceptance, faith and belief in an image of god and religion.
