i already have...but the reason why this is my focus, and why it is so important, is because the majority of the abrahamic believers do not realize they are in danger...they dont know how manipulated they are...and it just so happens the religion they follow is based off of the bronze age... as far as going back further...by far, i think it would be a mistake to discount the earlier archaeological record, or the vedic texts...which are some of the oldest writings in the world, and depict a civilization that rivals our own in both technology and philosophy...yet they too were trapped by the deception of religion...they too waged war on each other for petty reasons, and it almost cost the whole world... we are at that point again in human history, it is repeating itself...so i think it is very relevant to focus on the last 3000 years, because this has influenced the minds of the people behind the powers that are most capable of destroying humanity...

The christian mentality is that Jesus was God, the bible is the word of God and anyone who doubts that are evil people or satanists or demons. The reason I know this stuff is because I thought this way as a child and into my early adulthood. There was a period in my early adulthood that I tried everything to study the bible and reassure myself that all of it was legit because I was having doubts. I was worried that I was having doubts too because I was worried about "hell" Then one day it hit me and I realized there is nothing to stress about when it comes to God. If God exists he didn't put us here to stress about him. It doesn't mean just because you doubt the official story to go out and do bad things. I respect life not causing any harm to others not because I'm worried about "heaven or hell" but because I have a conscience that tells me what's right and wrong. I realize though that there are many people who do not have my mentality. My cousins friend told me and my cousin once "if I didn't have religion, I'd probably be out raping women" The real truth is there is a ton of mental illness in the world and to an extent the idea of religion is neccessary, even if not true to keep people's mind in check. We are animals, but we're conditioned animals just as a dog is trained to not go to the bathroom in the house we're trained to control ourselves. So the guildlines of bible are not necessarily a bad thing even if they aren't the word of God.
But after studying it I realize we're not the first generation of people to think the world is ending soon. It's a mentality that people that shared since the BEGINNING. The world is not ending anytime soon, other than a nuclear war. I don't feel there's a predetermined end to the world. The world will go on and on and on. We're just the middle children of the entire existence of the planet; We will die one die and our children will take our place and it will go on and on and on.edit on 28-4-2013 by NoSoul because: (no reason given)
if there is any deception it is right in the scripture itself...the god that israel supports did not want adam and eve to have free will...free will is something that a good god would have to allow if he were truly good, and many theists recognize this, but then fall for the nonsense that completely goes against free will... the problem i have with anthropomorphizing god is that any being that is everywhere, and is capable of creating the universe, could not be human...does not have human emotions, and is not subject to human mistakes or jealousy or any of the other flaws of humanity...just because we may do certain things, that does not mean we can superimpose our image on to a deity... the idea that god was herding us like cattle to make sure that genetics were not tainted, is also repulsive to me, and completely goes against the true nature of god...again, the creator would not violate something that he/it created...free will...

that may work for you and for many, but it does not work for me...i am not satisfied with sitting on an explanation handed to me, because usually those who hand them to us have ulterior motives...nor am i comfortable with accepting their definitions or theology in part or in whole because of the evil psychology behind them...whether the results or the aim was good or not, the ends do not justify the means...
A resident of Vladivostok, which is sandwiched between China, North Korea, and the Sea of Japan, was adding ordinary coal to a fire when he noticed a shiny metal object peeking through a piece of the friable black rock.1 The portion that protruded looked suspiciously manmade, so he investigated by enlisting the help of nearby scientists. The Vladivostok resident, Dmitry, found embedded in his coal a shiny metal bar with teeth, like those of a bar or plate gear built to mesh with the teeth of a wheeled gear.
The Pennsylvanian coal came from the Chernogorodskiy mines from the Khakasis region north of Mongolia.2 According to international Russian news source Komsomolskaya Pravda, biologist Valery Brier helped analyze the odd-shaped object. X-ray diffraction revealed that it was mostly aluminum with about two to four percent magnesium. This unique alloy is not generally produced today. And Brier noted that refined aluminum implies high technology.3
heres the thing, i like debate, but im not here to debate, i am here to explain what i think is happening, and to warn people...and to defend my views because some people feel the need to recruit me...
i dont want any of that, so thanks for the link, but i will be the ultimate decision maker on what i do or do not think is true...based on evidence, and i do not see me ending my search any time soon...
anything that claims to solve all my problems and answer my questions, is a product...and im just not interested...im content to find my own answers...

You just created a paradox. you said, "im content to find my own answers... " but then before that said that "anything that claims to solve all my problems and answer my questions, is a product...and im just not interested." ....so basically any answer that you yourself find will ultimately be a "a product, ....that your just not interested in."
Regardless, you can learn it all and it will get you nowhere, been there and done that 14 years ago....... have fun chasing your own tail and know that I love the real you that exists inside of that avatar shell of yoursedit on 28-4-2013 by dominicus because: (no reason given)
ok let me make it clearer...anything that just hands me the information, that sells itself as the solution to all my problems, when i do not consider the discovery i worked to find myself a problem, not only misses the point of what i am doing, but it attempts to sell itself where i do not want it...therefore anything that tells me it is going to solve my problem of having to search (which i enjoy) is a product, one i do not want...that is not a paradox it is merely you placing meaning that was not intended on my statement...
i also resent being placed in a box or category that has already been established, since i do not agree with everything all these established ideologies and philosophies attempt to solve...
for me it is not the destination, it is the journey...i dont claim to know it all
i am agnostic, not gnostic...
