I’ve always had an inquiring and imaginative mind and I often enjoyed being around those who were that way too. So for me personally, there’s something good to be said for those who are good at using their own imagination. But there is also something bad to be said about those using someone else’s imagination to live by. In my mind, it is just as easy to imagine that you shouldn’t be religious as it is.
Attaching god to any religion just doesn’t cut it for me. That’s because I never heard or read anything about god being religious or creating a religion when he supposedly created everything including Heaven and Earth or since. But I did hear and read plenty that god created all of the nature of the Universe including humans so it makes better sense to attach god to the nature of the Universe and the brotherhood of man instead of any particular religion.
It boils down to believing in the natural state of humanity not the unnatural religious state. Religions are superstitions that have rules but Nature has neither. Rules and superstitions won’t set your dreams free but freedom of rules and superstitions will. That’s a better dream to live. That reasoning and connection with the natural state of humanity is what I can definitely enjoy living with and I do.
Being barefoot in the park is so much better than having boots on your back if you know what I mean. If you don’t understand what I mean then USE YOUR IMAGINATION!
History has always been rewritten to reflect the biased political and religious views of certain leaders throughout time including America.
Modern Americans and Westerners love conformity. They bring up their children so their natural instincts to conformity passively yield to that vague something recognized as authority. They are carefully trained by religious parents, fake patriotism and government schools and cannot resist the requirement of self-approval.
When self-approval is acquired mainly from the approval of others, conformity is the result. Unfortunately, conformity is a force which many cannot successfully resist. The Church and religions were invented as political machines and with its blood-drenched history, is an enemy to liberty and individual freedom.
Irreverence is the champion of liberty and its only sure defense.
— Mark Twain
Those Jesus Freaks
Well, they’re friendly but
The shit they believe
Has got their minds all shut
An’ they don’t even care
When the church takes a cut
– Frank Zappa, “The Meek Shall Inherit Nothin'”
The glue that holds the 4 walls of the Church together is bigotry, revenues, fear and superstition. And the roof and floor are made out of Heaven and Hell. That’s one structure everyone should feel very uncomfortable going into.
The Founders of our nation were nearly all free-thinkers, all of those presidents who been elected early on (Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams and Jackson), not a one had professed a belief in Christianity. Jefferson especially said to believe in the homage of reason, than that of the blindfolded fear of religion.
Although the Founders of the United States were free-thinkers (infidels), they did not belong to any Christian organization. But they did believe in high moral standards, pure naturalism and the brotherhood of man instead. Our Constitution has nothing whatever to do with the Bible as the Founders also believed that Jesus was not the son of god but just a normal man who was a great philosopher with great insight about humanity.
They respected others religious beliefs but mainly believed in the forces of nature, especially the sun. They were a group of enlightened humanitarians that knew very well to separate religion from the government. So if that is really the case, why is it that the U.S. has so much mystical, evil, occultism and negative connotations that surround religious Americans?
The answer is simply that the fucking “Roman Catholic Church” and other religions say so. The “Church” and other religions also made sure that other governments around the world felt the same way in order to get them elected. I believe any and all conspiracies stem from the “Church,” other religions and from all corrupt politicians.
All religions are is a form of fanaticism and fanaticism is a strategy to prevent doubt from becoming conscious. If Christ were here today, he would certainly not be a Christian.
All religious systems deny individual power because they all proclaim that power is coming from someplace else. Seeing and knowing the truth about our perceived limits from religion will enable you to create a new larger truth and personal power that fits your own reality. Liberating the mind of these limits first will enable you to tap into your own power and energy.
Applying that power and energy on your own to the real world that we live in now is how we can eliminate our perceived limits and beliefs.
Religion has made a graveyard of the world throughout history in trying to pave a path to happiness and heaven. That kind of history seems better suited for the path to hell! The only faith I have in people who are very religious is believing what they think they know isn’t so!
The Bible and Koran paint a very evil and insane picture of God. The Bible tells us to be like God, and then chapter after chapter it describes God as a perverted mass murderer. This may be the single most important key to the ignorant political and religious behavior of Western Civilization. If you strive to be free, then wake up and realize that you can’t be ignorant and free at the same time.
The reason I enjoy ranting so much about religion and politics is because I’m hoping that my mindset will somehow inspire people to exercise their option of finding a better way to live their democratic lives without fanatical religion and corrupt politics. A democracy is supposedly a government ruled by the people. Do you believe that is the case in America?
I hope my personal mindset promotes free and independent thoughts and reason, instead of one using those convoluted thoughts steeped in the cults of religion and politics. The next time you are praying in a church just remember there’s a big difference between kneeling down and bending over. And the next time you vote, you should remember the same!
Whether living within or outside of society, eliminating the conventional stigmas of religion and politics attached will go a long way to freeing the mind of manipulation and dogmas while making life so much more simple and rewarding. The Status Quo is not only out of control, it’s also out of your control. Be better equipped to face the world without being a puppet of their Status Quo.
Most folks are constantly beating themselves up trying to change things they can’t. You may not be able to change things you don’t like about the corrupted side of society but you can definitely accept that reality and stop being a large part of those things too. Stop giving your power away!
What a wonderful lifestyle one can have when religion and politics are ever so absent in our daily lives. I`ll leave this rant with some quotes from the Bible and Qur’an as food for thought.
Exodus 22:20: He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the Lord only, he shall be utterly destroyed.
Leviticus 24:16: And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death.
Exodus 31:15: Whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
Exodus 21:15: He that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.
Exodus 21:17: He that curseth his father or his mother, shall surely be put to death
Exodus 22:19: Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.
Leviticus 20:13: If a man lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death.
Mark 16:16: He that believeth not, shall be damned.
Malachi 2:1-4: And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. If you will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart to give glory to my name, behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread shit upon your faces.
When you meet the unbelievers, strike off their heads; then when you have made wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives.
— Holy Qur’an, Sura xlvii.4
Kill those who join other gods with God wherever you may find them.
— Holy Qur’an, Sura ix, 5-6
What wonderful words of wisdom to teach your children!
