My own beliefs:
Firstly I’ll say that I'm an individual, and that I follow my own individualistic beliefs (i.e. no part of any religion, for
it’s own sake).
Yet Paranormal Evidence, and speculative reasoning, permit me (personally) to believe in things like: an afterlife, order out of chaos, the holy
, Reincarnation, and God “The Greater Right”.
Meanwhile the fact two of the world’s most open minded (and intelligent people) can have completely different views on a simple question like “Is
the death penalty ever right?” Confirms to me of the inability of any human to truly
know anything at all.
After all there is always a (distant) possibility that you and me are in an asylum for the chronically delusional, or were born inside a computer
matrix, or that reality is in some other way
a delusion. The chances of all (or any) of this may be incredibly small, but the fact the chance
can’t be completely eliminated
by our understanding shows that not only are we incapable of truly knowing anything, but that this
incapability can also only increase with any extra uncertainty provided in questions, beyond things like: “am I:” “Alive or dead?” “Sane or
I’ve long questioned whether the Christian God (taught to you from the bible) is a psychopath? The first reason is this…
If you had a next door neighbour who…
a. Rejected Christ & Religion
b. Was truly guilty of burgling a family home
c. And was without compassion or remorse for his crimes
Would you be right to go into his home, drag him into the back garden, then douse his body in petrol (head to toe) and set fire to him for say 3
minutes? Or maybe 6 minutes? Or 12? Or how about 999999999999999999999999999999999r9 minutes?
What Would You Achieve?
1. Would you teach his consciousness the differences between right or wrong?
2. Would you comfort his family (who in Christianity could well be perfectly great people?)
3. Would you achieve anything that’s tangible in this world if he had already died of natural causes?
4. Would you achieve anything that’s tangible (or worth having) in the afterlife? What would this be? Is e.g. heaven say powered by the screams of
the suffering? If so why and how?
Imagine (hypothetically for a minute) if it was Jehovah, and not his son who temporarily came to earth with the powers of just as a man. Would he be a
national leader, or another vigil anti who is sent to a person for the criminally insane?
Dear Christians; so surely mankind’s justice-correction system here on earth is devilish because it does not include execution (by slow)
incineration on the books?
After all we can’t of course build heaven on earth, or follow God without error. But as followers of the Bible should we not at least aspire to
follow God’s ways?
If God would (as a person) be sent to jail for dousing criminals in petrol, surely this prison punishment may be on path with the likes of crucifying
2. Next Problem: The Two Path Afterlife System…
Catholics: This doesn’t affect you, since some saint thought inventing Purgatory would be a good idea (I use the word “invent” for
purgatory, because like many Catholic teachings it’s written nowhere in the bible).
But in the heaven and hell only system what happens when two people are on the brink of either heaven or hell? What exactly could be the “straw that
breaks the camels back” E.g. ….
You have two people who killed their abusive lovers-partners for similar reasons. Both truly regret it, and say they accept Christ. Yet one regrets it
more than the other, but the other also stole once or twice.
Therefore one will go inside the incinerator forever, whilst the other will dance in the endless gardens with the endless skies, forever as forever
Is it just me, or is such small things accounting for infinitely wide, because they’re everlasting
differences, a really messed up system?
Surely a designer of the universe would instead choose something like the reincarnation system (something there happens to be real world evidence for,
in e.g. the hypnotic field known as “Regression”)
The Immoral Stupidity of Hell & Purgatory…
One problem with these entities (as separate reality plains, or dimensions) is it means god ends up enabling (brand new) soles to become things like
e.g. battery chickens (or for those who doubt animals have soles) then he at least does it for the soles of newborn human babies born in e.g. times of
famine, war, or possibly even Nazi style, extermination centres.
But all the time
he could instead choose to use the soles of the sinful dead to fulfil roles of suffering on Earth. Given the nature of
ignorance; this might not be entirely fair, but it would surely be a lot fairer
than sending innocent soles of creatures-children into
disrupted lives of doom & suffering?
Needless to say I believe in reincarnation as I wouldn’t expect much less from a-the designer of the universe. Perhaps then (not incidentally) there
some good real world evidence for it en.wikipedia.org...
To all the sceptics who wonder if this allows me to think “it’s ok to e.g. be cruel to animals”; then the answer is No!
, as I believe by
being cruel to a animal I will increase my chances of someday sharing it’s fate.
It’s the only way the system could (logically) balance out. If I truly regret my sins I will also accept the consequences, and if I don’t regret
them, then I perhaps deserve other consequences as well, as this could at least spare the truly regretful some of my fate.
3.Third Problem: The Never-ending War Between God and Devil
According two the bible there are two “kings”, one of good and one of evil. These beings are very intelligent (far more intelligent than any man
that walked the earth).
Yet they hate each other, and so far have spent the start of time fighting a war between one another.
Is it just me, or is there not something inheritably stupid (more stupid than mankind in fact) about fighting a war since the start of time?
Especially if it would be better for all if the war was replaced with a competition?
This is because competition (unlike war) achieves
This is demonstrated by giving a class a exam, or the way capitalism works better than communism, or the way the qualifying team for football match
achieves players of very a high physical ability (and or standards).
The competition would of course still be for the soles of men & creatures.
The Dark Side would think it’s good to tempt people (in life) to do things that are wrong, e.g. an animal sacrifice. As by doing this they
-declare themselves much more worthy (than a brand new sole) of being a lab dog, battery chicken, or starving refugee on an Oxfam TV
appeal (in the next life of course).
Followers of God on the other hand would try to encourage people into doing things that are good. This is because they know that good decision making
reduces the need for suffering, as well as entitles people into the world of heaven.
The competition could still be never ending, at least as long as both the Dark Side and the Good hold the followers of the Dark Side in contempt (i.e.
for being fallibly human-weak).
It would therefore fit in quite nicely with the idea in Christianity that the reason why the devil has a problem with God, is because he has a problem
with man in heaven.
But it would still be a competition, not a war.
The fact the creature (apparently) prefers war over competition is (to me) just more evidence of him being a psychopath.
What do you think?
