I enjoy listening to and examining the validity and origin of arguments that engage in thought processes that I have no affinity with, including beliefs that are often contrary to my own. Here is a compilation of excellent questions that people have presented across the internet in meme or comical form, in videos and websites, in what I believe was an attempt by them to present their conclusions in a thought-provoking manner. I answer these questions.
My answers are not complete, and it should not take long to recognize that they are not mainstream answers. Please consider also that if I were to provide a thorough examination in each video or written post, they would never end, and we would all die of boredom and brain malfunction before I finished talking. My responses are not attacks, rather it is engagement. Individuals often freely post their beliefs in hopes of encouraging everyone to agree with them. That is not my goal. I intend for these answers to provoke you to further analysis of your own conclusions. A more perfect benefit would be for some of you to discover new paths of research and engagement that you may not have yet pursued.
We have all been taught facts. We all have arrived at sets of conclusions. I notice that many recently popularized concepts are based on little more than the rhetoric of a few individuals. I think this is a very sad indication of the lost art of thought. The fact that most people consider faith and religion to be consistent and indistinguishable in nature is a sad report of the failure of people of faith to accurately represent the faith, and also of the sadistic dis-empowerment that religious attitudes have brought to the modern scene. Many people now consider faith and science to be at odds, I believe this is a ridiculous fallacy based on conjecture and limited observation. Representation of fact must be inclusive of reason and the ability to continue searching. The current mainstream perspective that “I know what the answers are, and only idiots disagree with me” is absolutely appalling and precludes a methodical determination to accept what one knows without any regard for what one does not already know. Aside from that, a thinker must always bear in mind that what he knows is based on biased information, and could at any time be proven false, or challenged with serious evidence that could point to alternative or modified conclusions.
Foremost in this predicament is the argument against the validity, historicity, and usefulness of what we call the Holy Bible. If I instead referred to it as a collection of ancient manuscripts constructed over several millennia by a categorically self-condemnatory population, in order to convey their historical relationship with the most indivisible and all-intrusive force that governs the universe, most of you non-believer types would most likely be more amenable to what it says. Sadly, the word HOLY automatically convinces many people to stop considering it. Alternately, the readily available data in support of it seems to be mostly metaphysical explanations that only seem to assist in the numbing of the brain and emotions of self-worth. Take into account that what you do not know is incredibly interesting, and useful, and more deeply intrinsic to life and the nature of matter in space and time than you could possibly imagine.
I am not going to provide definitive evidence for my answers, since this would be cumbersome and is often just a way to enable non-thinkers and trolls to continue on their path of self-effacement. If you want to know how I arrived at my conclusions, go research. I mean, actually research – don’t just look for whatever makes you feel good.
Most modern ‘understanding’ of the books and letters contained in the canonical Bible is extremely biased toward a method of indoctrination that was coagulated in the Middle Ages with a fierce promotion of the deity of the Lord God Vicar (Pope) and authority of the Holy Roman Church, which is not a Christian organization. The term Christian originated as a term of mockery in Rome’s multi-national cities. The word was used to identify a Christ follower as a “little Christ.” They mocked the believers because Rome had killed the man they called Christ, and they were killing his followers to assist them in imitating their master. When Rome fell to its own devices, the Holy Roman Empire ensured the continuance of the Roman way of life. When That finally coagulated as the Holy Roman Church, the popes and their puppets continued the massacre of all faithful believers in Christ.
Most biblical research ends in the middle ages, going no farther back in time and taking no account for the intricate meanings of the mathematically precise tonal language of Hebrew in ancient times (much like the language of ancient India – Sanskrit). Nor do most believing researchers take the time to familiarize themselves with other ancient texts, taking instead the non-academic point of view that all ancient stories beside the Bible are either invalid or are myths and fairy tales. Because of this, the Bible has been extremely misappropriated by groups that use it for nothing more than the propagation of some modern religion, or in the case of the HRC, the propagation of the Chaldean pantheistic religion and the incorporation of nearly every pagan, cult, and religious belief that they have encountered during their long history.
If I knew nothing about the Bible other than what I learned in church groups and in easily accessed media, I would be the most fortified of atheists. I think anyone serious about their search for
will take it upon themselves to reach a little deeper and see what it says for themselves. Sadly, in my opinion, most anti-christian and anti-religion arguments made by well educated and well-spoken atheists are exactly correct. It is for this reason that I am attempting to share my understanding of what I believe a Christian mentality and Christ-centered biblical narrative would present if it were able to be dissected and observed on a day to day basis.
My most important argument is that we have little concept in the modern world of what God is, or even what the word means, or where it came from. So every argument about God; his nature and the ‘proof’ of his existence or non-existence, is based on a contrived disagreement of what God would be if there was a God. For this reason, I have taken a disdain for the use of the word ‘God’ and for the label ‘Christian.’ No one agrees on the meaning or proper use of these words, yet we all argue vehemently about our own views, which are based on our small circle of social influence. Explaining God is like explaining ‘Mind.’ It may be possible to prove through the scientific method that the mind is a real function of autonomous personality expression differentiated from and yet also intricately interwoven with the brain processes, but most of the evidence would fail when confronted with Ockham’s Razor.
I take it seriously when the Bible – purported by its authors to contain the written will of God – claims that God tells “all people everywhere to be saved.” The next question I ask is comprised of ‘be saved from what?’ The same God tells all people to test whether God is true, and he will assist by providing evidence if the person is honest in their search. The question I ask myself to this end is ‘how do I test a God I cannot see or approach with mechanical computing devices?’ The Bible is filled with references to men and women that asked questions, pushing the envelope of their own understanding. I do not see any indication in the texts that believers are to forgo intellectual pursuits of knowledge.
In my efforts, I have discovered a universe of data interwoven in the texts. By comparing concepts across broad spectra of ancient textual cultural and religious data, I have recently arrived at a sense that the only way to fully appreciate the Bible is to gain some quantifiable understanding of quantum physics and to attempt to engage the mind in a method that takes into account the very depth, width, breadth, and height of all existence, including anti-matter and extra-potentiations of inter-dimensional spectrums and frequencies. I have taken the stance that if a particular passage of scripture seems to be metaphorical and yet the context suggests that it is not, I must engage in a systematic research of that passage and the meanings contained in it, in order to more fully appreciate what it states.
I do not believe in the God that you imagine when you hear the word. That God is too pathetic and small. If I am to serve a God, it is to be a God that is beyond all, accessible to all, within all, and yet outside all. If this sentence makes no sense to you, I suggest that you are stuck in a four-dimensional reality. It may be time to introduce yourself to a more bewildering and satisfying universe than the one you currently reside in within your own mind and enter the terrifying depths of multi-layered perfection that is contained within the stories in these books and letters.
I have very little knowledge, the sheer nakedness of what I have discovered is humiliating. I can only anticipate what great discoveries lie ahead. I am not attempting to convert anyone or alter anyone’s beliefs. I am petitioning not only non-believers but also believers of every faith and religion to endeavor to take a few steps into the depths of their own minds. Dissect and analyze your own conjecture, the basic elements of your profession, the intricate reasoning that has led you to where you currently reside in your thought life. For my part, I have experienced a strange and intriguing mental life that has met me in every arena, including the physical, conscious, and spiritual. Though I look for proof against what I believe, and at times I look for proof that what I know is completely insane, I continuously arrive at a deeper realization that God is real, he is true, and he is more than I could ever possibly imagine.
