  1. The more money you have, the more God loves you. If your poor we just start your damnation a little early.

    American Christianity in a nutshell.

  2. The problem with religion is humans and human interpretation for the selfish interest of control and wealth. Jesus, Mohammad, Buddha and all other divine messengers had given us pure messages which we then used to the detriment of all others. The Catholics who massacred the Gnostics who probably had a true understanding of what Jesus meant and then hid many parts of Jesus’ teachings in their Classified Library, and also did the same with the third message of Fatima, which I believe says, that the Star Brothers and sisters will return to earth and all religions will perish. Once can understand out of self preservation goals why the Catholics did not like this message. Today we see our star brothers and sisters in their craft but are lied to about their identities.

    1. May I suggest that we don’t generally see what the contributor Mr Case calls “ our star brothers and sisters” in their craft and that they are given no attribution as real by vested interests in astronomy and science fiction whose exponents might even believe their own propaganda concerning the data; while the entities themselves, who might just be genetically related to you by virtue of building their armies through a monstrous hybridisation program which starts in your childhood bedroom at the witching hour, are the ones lying to you, and have no interest in your knowing their true identities. Messengers of Deception, as Jacques Vallée called them. My struggle as a Christian is to integrate this model with the clearly divinely inspired teachings of Jesus, my best guess is that the vineyard is to be given to another tenant, but that the abductions – I don’t know if the term “rapture” is biblical- in addition to allowing the entities to use the resources available at destination for their awful project, allow also the preservation of the human form, possibly in the same freezers from which our assailants will emerge in force at the allotted time. But if the figments if the abductees’ presumed imaginations can’t have a greater level of coherence than the minds that gave rise to them, science has not really recognised the level of homogeneity In the abduction accounts. This is where the science fiction writers provide the fig leaf for the nakedness of the astronomers, by insisting that ideas they have arrogated to themselves, “their” science “fiction”, is so powerful that a scenario that they don’t themselves acknowledge they picked up from the witnesses themselves, has such power that, they believe, everyone just copies it. But I guess we’ll just all have to see for ourselves. If there were a Nobel prize in sociology we’d be further ahead, but the great man clearly didn’t think the discipline was explosive enough to merit a prize.

  3. “Moreover, the paramount concern of a popular religion cannot be and never has been “truth”, but the maintenance of a certain type of society, the inculcation in the young and refreshment in the old of an approved “system of sentiments” upon which the local institutions and government depend”. Joseph Campbell

  4. For the manufactured left, cast the right as a bunch of bible-thumping, gun-toting ignoramuses. For the manufactured right, cast the left as anti-American commies. Red states versus blue states (even when the majority are neither Republican nor Democrat). And so on.

    Reducing people to constant caricatures is a prime way by which the propaganda system robs us of our common humanity, in all its irreducible diversity and complexity. And of course, from the earliest age of industrial schooling and 24/7 media programming, people are dumbed down to insure the stereotypes take and are dutifully reproduced in attitude and behavior by the herd. Quite an advance from the day when Jay Gould observed how one half of the working class could be hired to kill off the other half.

    Leave the mind control behind, transgress the divide-and-rule identities produced for population control, and build the body politic.

  5. As several teachers have clearly stated, before their words were corrupted by hubris, Truth is within.
