I agree that it is mind control. I don't see it as forced mind control though. I see it is a guide book. Seeing that I do believe in God now, my
views are a bit different than what I'm going to explain to you, but this is the general idea that got me to open up to the idea of Christianity and
get over my grudge against it.
What if there was a creator? What if they put us here, they saw what a bunch of messed up losers we were on our own and got mad and wiped us out and
started all over?
If they created us, or put us here, or whatever you want to think they did, there must have been a reason, correct?
If they couldn't follow through on it, wouldn't it make sense to give them some guidance? Something like the Bible?
And if somebody or something, whether God or aliens or whatever you want to think created us, you would think they were a bit more advanced, or
evolved or something along those lines, right?
If the creator, whoever it was, was more intelligent than us, and we were not able to comprehend the ideas and concepts they held, wouldn't it make
sense to dumb it down to where the lowest common denominator could make sense of it and find a way to achieve what you wanted them to achieve? You
don't give a calculus book to a kindergartner do you? Or even a book about multiplication. You give them a book about 1, 2, 3 or 4 apples and tell
them to add them up, from that they learn more and more until they become somebody capable of learning more.
If mind over matter is something that works (and research has shown that people who pray do gain benefits and tend to live a bit longer) How do you
tell a simple person that it works and have them believe you if you cant move objects with your mind or something? I think that would be a difficult
thing to explain or prove. Like most people here on ATS, they would want links and proof and not believe anyone who cant provide them with it. But you
could tell a simple person what's in the Bible, and teach them to pray. For those of you who aren't Christian and don't have faith, I was that way
once and would not have believe me if I was you, but now that I do and I am, I pray, and I notice a great deal of what I pray for manages to work its
way into my life. Maybe it is coincidence, but if it is, it's surprisingly repetitive and aligned with what I pray for. It's like praying for
things, and firmly establishing them in your subconsciousness keeps those things in mind when you make your decisions. If that's the case, it's a
good tool isn't it? It helps you achieve what you're after.
It's effective, and it's simple. And if somebody reads the Bible and believes what is in it, and they believe they're talking to God, and given the
results, they think God is listening, they develop faith in that process and all of the sudden, they are doing something complicated via a very simple
path. They don't know they're doing it, but they are. This would be mind control in my book, but benevolent mind control.
This is one example of what I would like to convey to people who don't believe. Maybe there is a god, and maybe he isn't what is in the Bible. Maybe
he dumbed everything down so that we could all follow along.
Everyone knows that an 30 year old person can go back to kindergarten class and and go over that book with the four apples and point out that each
apple doesn't have perfectly equal mass and therefor one apple plus three apples doesn't make four on some level and teach him that the book is
false. But in the end, one apple plus 3 more does indeed equal four if you stop complicating it and let it be what it is.
Be right back.
