- "Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities
also has the power to make you commit atrocities." - Voltaire (1694-1778)
- Everyone who knows me knows I won't be preaching any
kind of old time religion anytime soon. And yet, the problem that we seem
to have lost our souls seems to be the main problem in the world right
- I have lately been fond of saying religion doesn't help
anyone see God, doesn't help anyone connect with the divine or sacred aspects
of things, which is just another way of saying that religion ultimately
blocks us from appreciating the finer things in life, things that usually
can make us happy. The most important is an objective respect for all life.
- Religion actually prevents all that. It's a terraforming
of the mind that permits only acceptable rituals, etched-in-stone prescriptions
for all life's situations. As a consequence, we condemn things that make
other people happy. Two random examples that come to mind are love between
homosexuals and appreciating people whose skin color is different from
our own. I don't want to veer off into either of those subjects, but I
just want to ask what right does any of us have to make judgments on things
that are really none of our business.
- Aren't kindness and compassion the ultimate currency?
When the time comes to die you will think they are - count on it.
- Religion creates an archetypal behavioral template for
the distribution of misinformation. If people accept religion, they're
more likely to embrace authoritarianism, which is why the neocons embrace
the evangelicals. Religions belong to the Dark Ages. Ultimately, religious
people cannot perceive reality, because they're fogged in by a false template
of default auto-suggestions. Also, religion provides them with a license
to be irresponsible and duplicitous, because they think they will be "forgiven."
- As one philosopher whose name I've now forgotten once
suggested, religion doesn't teach you how to be good, it only teaches you
how to pretend to be good.
- Several items that have crossed my cyberdesk in the last
day all stick in my mind as some kind of vortex by which to understand
what is happening to us all at this time.
- They involve the brainwashing aspects of religions and,
judging by the behavior of American soldiers in Iraq, also the loss of
our souls. But mostly they show why you can't rely on religion to find
- The first, from Russia, was forwarded by a respected
pagan philosopher and titled "The secret of Jewish circumcision and
the meaning of the Jewish skull cap." For purposes of the point I
am trying to make, I will cull some of its thoughts:
- It should be pointed out here that the Jews are not the
only bio-robots among us. Majority of people do not demonstrate individual
thinking or behavior and can be easily programmed. Their heads can easily
be filled with stereotypes, which those in power select for the crowd programming
and control. And most people are not even aware that they are being programmed
and turned into the bio-robots.
- Control of information can be effected by limiting available
information, by selectively withholding information, falsifying, feeding
selective information that presents distorted view of the world and so
- If a person is open to such manipulations of the information
field around him, he would ... think that his decisions and actions are
made independently. And yet he is a bio-robot ... being programmed by someone
- Why the Jewish baby boys are circumcised on the eighth
- The secret to this lies in the occult knowledge. Levites
possess that knowledge. And incidentally, they do not perform circumcision
on their own babies, they do that only to their "livestock" -
- During the first eight days only three lower Chakras
are developed. All the higher Chakras remain undeveloped in the body of
a circumcised Jew. In other words - a circumcised Jew is only half a person
- with mutilated soul and brain.
- Jewish circumcision ritual produces real bio-robots that
cannot tell the difference between good and evil, and who cannot be reprogrammed.
- We have all seen that religious Jews wear a skull cap.
The meaning of it is very profound - that skull cap covers the highest,
seventh human chakra - Sahasrara, which is located at the top of the head.
The Jews close it, thus cutting themselves off the Cosmos. Note that the
Catholic Pope and the highest catholic priests also carry skull caps.
- If you try to talk with a circumcised Jew about philosophy,
you would encounter such fanaticism, that it would be senseless to continue
the conversation. That's what it means to be dealing with a bio-robot!
- Chakra of the third eye is not developed among contemporary
Europeans, in this respect the Jews are no different from the others. But
in ancient times this Chakra was well developed among a much greater percentage
- One of the most important human chakras is Anahata (heart).
Practically all normal people feel it. Probably every language has an expression,
"I can feel it with my heart." And it is true that people can
feel many things with their heart. It can feel trouble, suffer, feel pains
of conscience, shame, to feel fear, to love, to hate, to feel compassion,
pity, to be able to commiserate, to feel good and evil . A person without
a developed heart Chakra is rude, compassionless, "heartless."
All circumcised Jews are like that.
- If you try to tell the circumcised Jew about these feelings,
he would not understand you. He would think that you are either a fool
or an actor. It is probably similar to trying to describe colors to a color-blind
- It should be noted that Jesus from Nazareth, who called
himself Christ, was also a Jew, who was circumcised on eighth day. (Luke
- Yes, I know, that's a load to contemplate. Do your best.
Your future depends on it. And there's more.
- My friend Professor Minja, the distinguished Serbian
thinker, furnished me a short essay which I spent all day reading and rereading,
and even after I had pored over it, I could not underestimate its impact
or its importance. It was the foreword to a new book, for which I do not
have the publishing information, but is titled "A New World is Possible,"
by Dunja and Ljubodrag Simonovic.
- The most dramatic truth is: capitalism can survive death
of the man as a human and biological being. For capitalism a "traditional
man" is merely a temporary means of its own reproduction. "Consumer-man"
represents a transitional phase in the capitalism-caused process of mutation
of man towards the "highest" form of capitalistic man: a robot-man.
"Terminators" and other robotized freaks which are products of
the Hollywood entertainment industry which creates a "vision of future"
degenerated in a capitalist manner, incarnate creative powers, alienated
from the man, which become vehicles for destruction of man and life. A
new "super race" of robotized humanoids is being created, which
should clash with "traditional mankind", meaning with people
capable of loving, thinking, daydreaming, fighting for freedom and survival
- and impose their rule over the Earth. Instead of the new world the "new
man" is being created - who has been reduced to the level of humanity
which cannot jeopardize the ruling order.
- Exactly so. This is precisely what's happening in our
- The Simonovics explain: "The final stage of a combat
between mankind and capitalism is in progress." Our "technical
civilization" is creating a "dehumanized and denaturalized man,"
a description that reminded me of the warning issued by the great and largely
inscrutable French Situationist philosopher Guy Debord ("The Society
of the Spectacle') more than 40 years ago, when he ranted about "society's
real unreality" sliding humanity into a "generalized autism."
- The Simonovics further explain: "Capitalism has
eradicated the man from his (natural) environment and has cut off the roots
trough which he had drawn life-creating force. Cities are 'gardens' of
capitalism where degenerated creatures 'grow'. Dog excrement, gasoline
and sewerage stench, glaring advertisements and police car rotating lights
that howl through the night - this is the environment of the 'free world'
man. By destroying the natural environment capitalism creates increasingly
extreme climatic conditions in which the man is struggling harder and harder
to survive - and creates artificial living conditions accessible solely
to the richest layer of population, which cause definitive degeneration
of man as a natural being. 'Humanization of life' is being limited to creation
of micro-climatic conditions, of special capitalistic incubators - completely
commercialized artificial living conditions to which degenerated people
- If that doesn't describe our post 9/11 condition I don't
know what does. We live in a society that deliberately misses the point
of just about everything. We argue about sports and brands of religion
while our government kills hundreds of innocent people every day, and when
people like me try to point that out to you, many of you get very upset
and run and hide. How difficult is it for you to admit we have been robotized?
- A few more mindbusters from the Siminovics (for whom
I will get the publishing information, because this is one book I plan
- Capitalism systematically destroys the man's ability
and need to raise essential questions about his own (social) existence,
as well as his potentials to provide answers to them. Almost the entire
media space is controlled by those who destroy life and marginalize the
essential while attributing crucial dimension to the marginal. "Sensational
affairs", "historical matches", media "star" shows,
"spectacular" Hollywood films and TV soap operas - become the
vehicle for averting of people's attention from the issue which determines
survival of mankind or its idiotization. Blocking of conscience and giving
vent to the man's repressed being, his growing discontent, fear, anxiety
- and insemination of man by the ruling spirit of capitalism wherefrom
the "positive man" should be born - this is the essence of the
"spectacle". Therefore the growing importance of sport.
- The story of the "American dream" is over.
Assassinations of Martin Luther King, of John Lennon and other numerous
people who fought for the human world - have clearly demonstrated that
the notion of "a better society" represented the greatest threat
to the ruling capitalist groups for it provided a possibility for development
of a political platform that could direct the growing discontent of the
oppressed toward creation of a new (righteous) world. The major goal of
the capitalist propaganda machinery is to kill the people's hope that the
future is possible and that fighting for it does make sense.
- Ideologists of capitalism represent things as if nothing
serious was going on - as if the world were not brought to the very edge
of total ruin.
- It is not any more the fear of the man that has to face
his own unavoidable natural death, but the anxiety of the man who has to
confront the increasingly realistic possibility of destruction of life
on Earth, and consequently of mankind itself.
- Capitalism has not only deprived the man of his spiritual
homeland (Heimatlosichkeit) but also of his vital environment through annihilation
of nature and of man as biological being; it does not only deprive the
man of his human essence, but questions his survival.
- So .... with those two heavy stories percolating in my
brain, the third element of today's picture of the world came crashing
down on me in yet a third e-mail. It was Paul
Rockwell's story about what Army reservist Aiden Delgado saw during
his stint at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison and provides as clear as picture
of what America has become - and what all Americans are responsible for
- as anything I have read.
- What Rockwell quoted the soldier as saying about "the
breakdown of moral order within the U.S. military, a pattern of violence
and terror that exceeds the bounds of what is legally and morally permissible
in time of war," is actually something quite worse - it is the breakdown
of civilization enthusiastically triggered by the leaders of the American
armed forces. Rockwell quoting Delgado:
- The worst incident that I was privy to was in late November.
The prisoners were protesting nightly because of their living conditions.
They protested the cold, the lack of clothing, the rotting food that was
causing dysentery. And they wanted cigarettes. They tore up pieces of clothing,
made banners and signs. One demonstration became intense and got unruly.
The prisoners picked up stones, pieces of wood, and threw them at the guards.
One of my buddies got hit in the face. He got a bloody nose. But he wasn't
hurt. The guards asked permission to use lethal force. They got it.
- They opened fire on the prisoners with the machine guns.
They shot twelve and killed three. I know because I talked to the guy who
did the killing. He showed me these grisly photographs, and he bragged
about the results. "Oh," he said, "I shot this guy in the
face. See, his head is split open." He talked like the Terminator.
"I shot this guy in the groin, he took three days to bleed to death."
I was shocked. This was the nicest guy you would ever want to meet. He
was a family man, a really courteous guy, a devout Christian. I was stunned
and said to him: "You shot an unarmed man behind barbed wire for throwing
a stone." He said, "Well, I knelt down. I said a prayer, stood
up and gunned them all down." There was a complete disconnect between
what he had done and his own morality.
- Originally writing in Motion Magazine, Rockwell asked
Delgado: "The theologian Reinhold Niebuhr tell us that, with the sanction
of the state, driven by nationalism, moral, decent individuals become killers
and torturers in groups. You attribute the break of restraint to racism.
When did the process of dehumanization of Arabs begin?"
- Delgado recounted the words of his own commander.
- "Now don't go tell the media that you're going over
there to kill some ragheads and burn some turbans." Everybody laughed,
and he laughed with them. I remember standing there in formation, having
grown up in Egypt. And I was thinking: "Oh, my God, this is going
to be a disaster. Our commander has this anti-Arab attitude even before
we go over." The commander would give lectures about Islam. He said
that Muslims advocate a holy war against us, that Islam promotes perpetual
war. I've been surrounded by Muslims for a decade, exposed to their culture.
He is wrong.
- So now we see the complete prostitution of human society
manifesting its evil face as basic American policy. And as well, as the
unquestioning attitude of most Americans.
- You see now unadorned the complete and ugly truth. You
may not turn to your religion for help because your religion has blocked
your own compassion, and perhaps by circumcision (or perhaps one of many
other things) has blocked your ability to see with your heart and discern
what is truly right from what is truly wrong.
- Your allegiance to trivial capitalist folly has atrophied
your ability to perceive what are the truly important things as you pile
up those electronic trinkets to keep yourself from admitting the love you
do not have.
- You have been turned into a mind-controlled robot by
the two things you have relied upon most for guidance - your God and your
- So what will you do on that one day soon when the gun
barrel is pointed at you? Your prayers and patriotism will be meaningless,
because they have been the very causes of your misery.
- Will you wake up then, when it is too late? Or will you
wake up now, when it is not?
- John Kaminski's Internet essays can be seen on hundreds
of websites around the world. They have been collected into two anthologies,
the latest of which is titled "The Perfect Enemy," about how
the Zionist-controlled U.S. government created the terrorist group known
as al-Qaeda. His booklet "The Day America Died: Why You Shouldn't
Believe the Official Story of What Happened on September 11, 2001"
was written especially for those who cling to the government's false explanation
of the events of that tragic day. For more information go to http://www.johnkaminski.com/
- From Tygerkittn
- Christians don't just "go out and sin because they
know they'll be forgiven," unless they're very stupid. To be forgiven,
you have to truly repent. To truly repent, you have to wish fervently you
had never done that sin in the first place. It's a painful process, to
strip away your self-justifications and look at what you did with God's
eyes, to have to live with the knowledge of what you did, no one who is
truly a Christian would WANT to go through something like that. This was
a shallow, un-researched article.
- Christians who are truly Christians, and not just responding
to a poll taker with childhood nostalgia for a former half-hearted affiliation,
read the Bible every day, go to Church every Sunday, and give to the Lord
out of our time, our talents, and our treasures. Christians are guided
by the Holy Spirit, and while the devil may still work on our weak spots,
we strive not to sin because of that wonderful feeling of closeness to
God that we get from NOT sinning.
- My life has changed radically in the last year, I've
read dozens of books and bought hundreds more, and I'm a different, better,
happier person since I was Saved. But I know that if I don't read the Bible
every day, or if I don't listen for God's voice in my choices, I could
lose this. I'm not thinking "Oh well, I'd be forgiven." I'm thinking
"I don't want to lose this feeling for a single second."
- There is also the chance that when you sin you could
die before you're forgiven. It takes awhile to truly repent, and if you
die in your sin you're not going to be with God, because He doesn't allow
sin in His presence. Why would anyone take that risk?
- You know nothing about Christians. Christianity is something
you work at, and it's hard work but it's more worth it than anything else
I've ever put effort into. We tithe on every penny we get, we read the
Bible every day, we work at our church, and we work to help those who need
it, as well as witnessing every time God sends us the opportunity. Until
you've reached a level of spirituality with the rewards we've received
you have no idea how stupid it would be to risk everything by "sinning,
knowing we'd be forgiven."
- I must heartily concur with Tygerkittn. There may indeed
be many Christians, especially of the 'modernist ilk', who literally think
that intoning some magic words called 'The Sinner's Prayer' and using the
name of Jesus is some magic talisman that guarantees them forgiveness for
whatever they do and act in atrocious manners -- these people are not yet
'converted.' There has been no change in their inward person by the Spirit
of Christ. Every religion, just like every politic, has its fools. Christ
even forewarned us of our own fools, and Paul labored to explain precisely
how one can remain a 'carnal christian' and never truly attain to the glory
of Christ contained within the Faith.
- Sin, for the true believer, is a very painful thing,
because every sin we commit we now commit willfully, knowing we are sinning,
and knowing the consequences of sin. Scripture says plainly, "For
if under the law of Moses one was condemned to death by two witnesses,
how much more severe shall the punishment be to them which have regarded
the sanctifying blood of God's Son as powerless, and trampled it underfoot?"
We are constantly warned, "God shall not be mocked." No one is
'getting away' with anything. Christian or non-Christian. We shall all
stand before the judgement seat of Christ and God the Father. When Christ
calls us to believe in Him, he's saying more than just giving mental assent
to an idea -- he's saying we must fully accept Him as God (for all power
in heaven and earth was given unto Him) and to walk in faith, which requires
obedience to God's law.
And what's all this CRAP about Jewish babies circumcized on the 8th day
that you're going on about? I noticed you managed to figure out some way
of converting this into an insult against Jesus Christ, as well. Predictable.
The fact of the matter is, Doctors today know very well that it is best
to perform circumcision on the eighth day of a child's life. On the eighth
day there is more Vitamin K and prothrombin present in the blood, which
means less pain, less bleeding, and a better healing process.
- You write: "A person without a developed heart Chakra
is rude, compassionless, "heartless." All circumcised Jews
are like that."
- That has to be the most insane statement ever penned!
It is not only vile and racist, but you clearly don't know any decent,
compassionate Jews that are circumcized. Where do you get this bullshit,
- "If you try to tell the circumcised Jew about
these feelings, he would not understand you. He would think that you are
either a fool or an actor. It is probably similar to trying to describe
colors to a color-blind person."
- I feel sorry for you if this is your only experience
with Jews. Your bigotry is overwhelming and your ignorance is flaming.
- "It should be noted that Jesus from Nazareth,
who called himself Christ, was also a Jew, who was circumcised on eighth
day. (Luke 2:21)"
- Oh yeah, now THERE was a heartless, discompassionate
Jew if ever there was one, eh? Have you lost your MIND?? Jesus Christ,
discompassionate? I have only one further response...
- 2 Corinthians 4:3... penned by a circumcized Jew, the
Apostle Paul: "But if our gospel be incomprehensible to some, it is
hidden to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world (Satan) has
blinded the minds of them which will not believe, lest the light of the
glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."
