Religion and Nature

Friedrich Nietzsche proposed that a pontificating Christianity developed a moral system that inverts Nature. In The Anti-Christ, he said Christianity is "hostile to nature" and is a "religion of…Continue

"Manicheans in ancient Persia were into dualism like no other. The world of pure spirit vs the material world. Aruha Mazda and his opposite Ahriman. No other belief system is this split."

Doctrine of Infallibility

What do you think of the Doctrine of Infallibility? For me, this doctrine correlates with inerrancy. For religions, infallibility includes saying my/our religion can't err because I/we have the Truth. Infallibility is about being right absolutely and without exception. Infallibility proclaims the inerrancy of the Bible. In 1870, the Roman Catholic Church formally announced the doctrine of papal infallibility on matters of faith and doctrine. However, all religions have some doctrinal forms of…See More

Fideism

What do you think of the concept of Fideism? For me, fideists are those religious addicts who have beliefs not based on reason or logic. For me, fideism puts reasoning to sleep. It really amounts to an abdication of the working brain’s critical thinking skills of analysis and synthesis. Fideism is concrete reactive thinking and a mechanical interaction with life. Schopenhauer said, “faith and knowledge are related as the scales of a balance; when one goes up, the other goes down.” (19th Cent)…See More

Dogma

Dogma - I want to give some views on dogma. What do you think? Dogma is a major factor that leads to a theology of separation. We all have access to a Natural Moral Code predating any man-made religious beliefs. However, we interpret universal moral codes the way we experience life. Universal moral codes are interpreted by a human nature that includes solipsism. Religions are man-made interpretation of nature-made universal moral codes based on their experience of Nature and human nature.…See More

Profound Belief

Posted on November 16, 2018 at 8:39am 4 Comments

In the Prologue to my book, I wrote in my mid-twenties there ignited in me an intense battle centered around a childhood supernatural worldview, and building a definitional worldview that I could live by. This dualistic battle amounted to my gethsemane, or my own noche oscura del alma ---> “dark night of the soul.” My dualistic battle became a daunting task to repeal-and-replace an obsolete worldview. My dualistic battlefield became a fierce insistent, persistent, consistent internal…
