Bipolar God

Gulley and Mulhollan refer to the dualistic "fear-based and heaven earning religions." (2004) Dualism has been involved in Abrahamic religions from the start and has led to a “theology of separation.” (Walsch, 2005) Propagandistic fear-based religions contribute to shame, guilt, anxiety, mistrust, depression, drug addiction, sexual repression/ obsession, and even suicide. Condescending dualistic religions have a view of a damning God (a God of damnation), a malicious diety of retribution. A…

Planetai

It is by way of naturalistic patterns and order, I feel gifted to have a foundational footage to build my nature-based worldview. I find it interesting that the Greek root word for planet is planetai ---> meaning "wandering." I endorse the idea that us human earthlings we are indeed nature-created wanderers and Cosmic pilgrims as we individually make our meandering journey in search of discovering, “Who am I?,” “What am I?, and in finding our place in the Cosmos. The Aristotelian and…

Dualistic Religions

Dualistic Religions - Zoroaster founded the Persian ancient religion of Zoroastrianism, that has had a major influence on the Abrahamic religions. Kriwaczek said, “Zoroaster’s reputation had been high in the classical world.” (2003) He taught the dualistic forces of good and evil, and proclaimed that the world is a Cosmic battleground between them. The symbol for Zoroastrianism is fire, and it represented an enlightened force…

Spirit-Body Dualism

Nature has some key dualisms and we know that humans have many dualisms (most of them man-made). The Cartesian Dualism is a significant man-made dualistic concept separating mind (psyche) and body (soma). This mind-body split continues to be a major worldview for many people. However, the Abrahamic religions take this mind-body split and turn it into a dualistic spirit-body split. The spirit-body split has dramatically divided the spiritual world from the material world, and has given us the…

Naturalistic Fallacy

Naturalist Fallacy - Religions are major offenders of taking what "is" (i. e. Nature and human nature) and making it into what their fallacious dogma and doctrines say it "ought" to be. Religions are experts at categorizing human beings as good and evil, or damned and saved. The Big 3 Abrahamic religions do an excellent job of demeaning and demonizing all of us as sinners. The Big 3 are highly skilled at sowing childhood…

Money Changers in the Temple

I stridently denounce those spiritually bankrupt men-of-the-cloth and their bag-of-magic and superstitious tricks. I castigate these Lilliputian men-of-the-cloth who have become wealthy by manipulating their exploitable-and-expendable groveling devotees. It is difficult for me to hear the insufferable ranting coming from a toxic sinkhole of midget minds. These obsequious modern-day money changers in the temple. These Christian parasitical money-grubbing men…

Sinister Ministers

John Calvin was that acerbic Huguenot having a self-righteous homilectical preaching that human nature is completely corrupt and sinful. There exists an entire host of modern day unsavory elite-and-aloof pejorative preachers who have a fear of human nature. There is a real cesspool of apopletic preachers with their apocalyptic messages aimed at their subservient followers. Sinister ministers of diminutive moral character the likes of Ernest Angley, Jim Bakker, Franklin Graham, John Hagee,…

Doctrine of Original Sin

The history of most early religions formulated a dualistic split between spirit and body. This split put us above the Animal Kingdom. It made us superior to other creatures in Nature. This superiority of humans led to an anthropocentric view of humans. This dualistic split lead to the natural bodily instincts of humans as being inferior. This horrendous vilification, desecration, denigration, and contamination stance against human nature is due to a religious fear of human instincts. This…

Number of Relgions

The excerpt I am posting here is from my book,  "Balanceology:  The 4 M's of motivation, meaning, measurement, mitigation."

Number of religions - I advance the idea that the pure number of religions certainly is an indication that they are man-made jokes. Over the past 6,000-12,000 years, it has been astonishingly estimated of the existence of 100,000 different religions in various cultures across the globe (more to come). Harrison pointed out,…

Dualistic Battle

I recently wrote a book entitled, Balanceology: The 4 M's of motivation, meaning, measurement, mitigation.  I want to share with everyone an excerpt that I call "Dualistic Battle" from Chapter 19, The Great Mysteries.

I was raised a Roman Catholic. That is raised, not born! There is a huge difference between being born with a trait and being conditioned to a belief. We are…

'Mummy, can you spray my face white?'-

Isn't this the saddest story you've heard in a long time.

How can a society that call's itself civilised make a child feel like that? When are we going to reach that time when the colour of a child's skin won't matter.

Krauss, Silverman, and Feet of Clay

It was late February, 2018 when I first learned about issues regarding Lawrence Krauss and his inappropriate behavior toward women. Then in the first week of March, I got an email from American Atheists, indicating that David Silverman was being suspended from the presidency of that organization, pending an investigation. One week later, I learned that he has been removed from that position. In both cases, the only forthcoming source of details regarding both Krauss and Silverman is…

The Thin Veneer of Deeply Held Religious Beliefs

“I have met some highly intelligent believers, but history has no record to say that [s]he knew or understood the mind of god. Yet this is precisely the qualification which the godly must claim—so modestly and so humbly—to possess. It is time to withdraw our 'respect' from such fantastic claims, all of them aimed at the exertion of power over other humans in the real and material world.”

African religion

Most commentary on religion on the web deals mainly with the Abrahamic faiths. Whenever Buddhism is talked about, mainly it is like now when they are fighting the muslim minority in Burma. African religions hardly ever get a mention or even a footnote. It is this anomaly that I seek to correct by writing a few pieces on African religion to join those others written by people more qualified than I am.…

What brings people to be extremely forgiving of "horrible" crimes

One of my questions is "are atheists more forgiving". But before i get into that,what is the purpose of forgiveness and why do we forgive.

Forgiveness is one of two things we can do,be merciful or killed in an evolutionary sense(the modern of form of killing may be imprisonment or shunning). I suppose this has something to do with the fact that some people are beneficial to us and it would be wasteful to kill them.Contrary to this,  people who are of no value who are causing a ruckus…

I am fucked to be an athiest

Hello world, i currently feel like shit.Literally,just like how i used to whine on the floor during my sujoods whining to the sadistic God of Abraham(aka God,Yahweh,Allah). But now i am thinking,was Allah that sadistic.
