Monotheistic thought evolved out of polytheistic thought. Monotheism stipulates we are individuals (mono) created in God's image & that God is everything from A to Z, including Good/Evil, Love/Hate, Light/Dark, Positive/Negative, Masculine/Feminine, etc.. Its our free will to decide which path we follow. These monotheistic beliefs helped create western civilization, which respects individual (mono) privacy/property rights over collective (poly) identity group rights. These monotheistic beliefs helped liberate women, free slaves & give gays rights as individuals created in the image of God. Monotheistic Religious monastaries evolved into academies, which evolved into the modern universities we have today, which helped give us everything from: the idea of free-market capitalism (though it's been naturally occurring throughout human history), electricity, air-conditioning/refrigeration, radars, microwaves, trains, planes, manufacturing assemby lines, automobiles, freighter ships, spaceships, computers, satellites, internet, smartphones, ATS, modern medicine/sciences, modern calendar to franchises like Avengers, Star Wars, the Matrix & Lord of the Rings, which are based of biblical religious stories.

I have no clue what you are talking about.

So you have never had a NDE, that after posting it on the Internet has opened you up to other entities that have always existed and watched us for decades.

Those who are destined to be one of the system will never understand what others "are talking about".

Good luck mate; because when all hell breaks lose very soon, only certain types of spiritual people will survive the massacre. Reapers are one type that are destined to survive.

That's not true. Science doesn't come from monotheism, there actually were huge battles between those two until recently.
Everything you wrote is false.
America was founded by freemasons, a not (almost anti-) religious group.

Everything you believe in is a lie. I tell you that from my personal experience.
I don't know what the truth is, but rapture and all that crap will never happen.

Religious Monastaries were the 1st institutions to preserve/store/teach knowledge. Academies evolved from monastaries & universities evolved from academies. The Vatican has libraries preserving/storing vast quantities of human knowledge. The Vatican also owns some of the most scientifically advanced telescopes in the world.

Free masons also evolved from monotheistic religious luminaries (illuminati). Specifically the Knights Templar. They also understand the pillars of religion and that God is everything from A to Z, including: Good/Evil, Love/Hate, Light/Dark, Positive/Negative, Masculine/Feminine, Right/Left etc..

They were not teaching knowledge but scripture.
You know who Galileo was?

The believe in a supreme being for Masons is because of the obligation to be good men, they have nothing to do with the Templars.




For more than 1,500 years Christians saw the bible as the primary source of knowledge, but in the 17th century a new movement emerged that challenged the Christian view of the world, the Scientific Revolution. During the Renaissance the rising power of science forced the Catholic Church to silence rebellious scientists. By the 19th century the enlightenment had given rise to a new generation of scientists who pushed Christianity into retreat.

It may not happen in the simplistic interpretation of ancient people, but we live in an entropic universe. So annihilation will happen eventually. That's a scientific fact.
God's creative nature is the antithesis of annihilation is it not?

Who knows maybe he creates "a mansion" or a heaven for some elsewhere that is not this current existence, a plane of permanence from annihilation. Such a concept is not out of the realm of possibility from a God that has created this universe.

Do you perceive Zeus as the Creative force or a weaker reflection from the original limitless source of possibility?
If you think him the creator archetype then you are being slightly contradictory by telling someone that they are wrong about concept of Annihilation versus creation/Permanence, which esoterically speaking, is really the theme of the Rapture.

I don't believe in a creator. I believe in a chain of reactions. Chemistry and physics. To me gods and so on are part of the riddle what consciousness is, nothing more nothing less.

If it is a LIE, that the stupid Elite have preached to us for centuries, then they have only 1 option to take now and that is to obey their own rules and make Matthew 25:10 become reality.

Matthew 25:10
They will fulfill the rapture via alien abduction. They have no choice now.

They have obeyed GOD's Word and transformed Matthew 24:10 into their specific Rapture. It will happen because they will use alien technology, given to them before WW2 via the fallen watchers.

Knowledge and scripture are one and the same.

"Galileo Galilei, though famous for his scientific achievements in astronomy, mathematics, and physics, and infamous for his controversy with the church was, in fact, a devout Christian who saw not a divorce of religion and science but only a healthy marriage: "God is known by nature in his works, and by doctrine in his revealed word.""

No. Knowledge has proven scripture wrong over and over again.

I actually believe it is spiritually beneficial to have a whole pantheon of gods instead of just the one, especially if it is one who is in company of angels, demons and satan.

That is belief in Archetypes. just a fancy Jungian word for Religious factions/identity traits.
Where's your science in the OP ?

Why would it be necessary? What does it have to do with me preferring a pantheon of energy beings over one hierarchical bearded old guy in the clouds?

Scripture has also proven knowledge wrong multiple times. For instance, pride is a sin & humility is a virtue in scripture. People without religion believe pride is a virtue and humility is a sin, which is not true. Knowledge has also proven knowledge wrong multiple times, especially with quantum physics which has helped support religion.

gods in their true form are not humanoid at all

Finally, something to respond to.

Earth is not humanoid. Nor Sky, nor Ocean, nor Wind, nor Rain, nor River, nor Spring bubbling up from Earth.

Mountain that I see, may not be Mountain that you see. Different locations, different names.

Sky we all have in common, and Sun, and Moon.

Southern Night looks different
from Northern Night
different looks from different locations

Are Night Two,
or continuum degree by degree
of changing point of view?

One sees Polaris and never Southern Cross
yet both are there and vice-versa.

Polytheism is more naturally observable.

Now you're just making stuff up. Just no. You'll have to show me prove people not believing in god believe in the sin virtue stuff and also where quantum physics supports religion.

It is needed as you are not coming across clear at all.

Your OP does not reflect what you are now saying.

One bearded guy versus a pantheon of archetypes is actually the same thing....just different storylines.

Good luck on your search and remain open, it easy to let certain archetypes control you without realizing it when you start dishing out definitives.

LGBT+ pride, black pride or any other kind of pride are sins on public display. If you haven't noticed that then I don't know what to tell you. They don't think pride is a sin, when it is. Also, many physicists & astronomers believe in God.

The link below is interesting in that it can go either way depending what one believes. If one believes we are created in the image of God it gets even more confusing.

Imo, God exists, even if only in the form of a tulpa or archetype(s). If there was no such thing as God, there would be no such thing as atheism. Imo, God is everything, therefore God exists. I also know our material world is only a temporary construct & what we experience in our dreams may be closer to our eternal reality. If you write a fictional story, does that story not exist? Can it still teach a lesson? Can it still help support/guide humanity's advancement?

Depends on one point of view and how surreal it is.

The Greek main Trinity is Zeus(sky), Hades(earth), and Poesidan (sea) and are elemental based, similar to the Jews Titanical Beasts while having no real connection to Genesis. I doubt mythology would be able to elaborate any actual explanation, or scientific techniques to anything not of this world or realm other than some insight.

Weird thing is that there are wide amount of similarities that are shared with cultures that should of never met. They all that statement that there a fine line between man and god.

In some eastern, proverbial schools of thought, Heaven and Earth were seperate forces or energies. Like Yin and Yang, the dragon(yang) vs the tiger(Yin), or a dragon(like Godzilla and easterner) fighting everything else and that it symbolized Heaven like it was a single being. Even the Tao makes this comparison.

Monotheism does take on a lot polytheistic attributes, like the slaying of the bull, chaos and order could be symbolic of change. Moses and the Ten Commandments is strikingly similar, where he and god has a beef with beef worshippers of the Golden Calf arc.

Zoroaster and his believes are said to have had huge influences on all three Abrahamic religions and had beef(hehe get it) Hinduism an it Devas, to the point he might of been Abraham himself but that way way out there conspiracy theory of mine.

Judaism has two words that more then likely come from different gods, like Hades being Sheoul, and the word Shiva being the word for funeral.
