Oh no … not

again, Mr Argus …

henpecked-1… PERLEEEEZE~ 

Hard luck, Toots! Here it comes—so deep breath, close your eyes, cross your legs and think of England:

WE’VE BEEN SOLD A PUP!

(actually, lots of pups, but who’s counting?)

FIRST:

be aware that—regardless of truththe academic professionals (being people who have invested in education and now use the fruits of their labours to defend their turf) (much like anyone else) will NOT countenance any threat to their dominance. No?

SO:

whatever they have absorbed as ‘fact’ will stay locked in forever as FACT.

BUT don’t fret.

On occasion some outfielder comes in despite the flak and drops bombshells of unassailable evidence revealing the current paradigms false, wrong, a wee bit totally incorrect … and old hat. Junk.

And so some of the ‘knowledge’ gets quietly revamped. To hell with any ‘facts’ from past doctrines, they get quietly buried; the newest facts become “This is exactly what WE were saying all along!”

FOR MYSELF

I have two filters where knowledge is concerned:

  • I look for apparent contradictions, and
  • does it make sense?

The Establishment has much to answer for but so long as it holds all the power progress is halted—

—until their dams burst under the accumulating weight of no-longer-deniable apostate facts. (Yes, Little Virginia … Academia too is Church.)

Here’s an instance (14 minutes)—

—make of it what you will* .

For myself I still have faith in one Virginia Steen McIntyre. And I bitterly regret that I cannot go back through time to kick the shit out of those good doctors (all highly qualified) who so wisely/cleverly prevented Semelweiss from sabotaging medicine …

SACRIFICIAL

LAMB.Skyborne piggy copy

COW.

SHEEP.

GOAT.

HUMAN.

HUMAN* ?

This caught my eye—

Screen Shot 2019-08-18 at 17.44.22.png

and resurrected a thought about religious sacrifices, be they chicken, lamb, ox, or human.

THE IDEA OF SACRIFICE

of course is to curry favour with God. (He loves blood …)

And after priestly machinations the sacrifice itself becomes holy — so once God accepts the spirit of the thing (He always does, trust me!) the physical leftovers mustn’t be profaned by the unclean so the priest gobbles up the remnants on behalf.

So it’s win/win/win all ’round—

  • God takes His holy share (even though we can’t see any difference)
  • the priest takes his share of God’s leftovers   (  ”    ”    ”  )
  • the donor gets to go to Heaven (having just made a sacrifice); and
  • the only one a bit miffed is the chicken.

Do all religions ‘sacrifice’?

Yes. To be a True Follower of any religion you must (R) MUST sacrifice

  • your intellect
  • your integrity
  • your time
  • your independence, and
  • your goodies.

But don’t take my word for it—sacrifice some of your copious free time to go explore the idea.

Now just out of general interest, sacrifice more time to wonder if child sex (oops) sex with little girls shouldn’t be made compulsory in so-called ‘civilised’ nations? Let this dude explain—

—and form your own conclusions. I think he was once a Moslem but recanted, which as we all know is a death sentence … his own sacrifice, in fact.

* Why not? Around the world every day hundreds of millions sacrifice themselves to the invisible and are delighted to do so—every coin dropped in a Collection Box, every million you donate to your favourite church/mosque/synagogue/temple/house of worship/etc is a sacrifice … (even if, poor sucker, you consider it an investment).

“For example, to test men for apologetics knowledge, it’s really easy – just ask them what the significance of cosmic microwave background radiation is, what chirality is, what the significance of 1 Corinthians 15:3-7 is, and what is the difference between the deductive and inductive problem of evil. If they can’t answer all four of those then you can’t marry them. Biblical manhood concerns are not check-boxes on the marriage application form – they’re long-form essay questions. Judging the man’s ability to do silly stuff, like get a tattoo or clown around in a bar, is just not relevant to making the marriage serve God. A woman’s personal preferences don’t decide here – evidence decides. (So long as the goal of marriage is to serve God* , instead of to make women happy) …”

From the same source as in my previous post.

You know, I think this guy would have made a brilliant Muslim … given but an accident of birth. (Which of course is all a part of God’s ineffable plan—Him being omni-everything it couldn’t be otherwise, could it?)

selfie* To serve ‘God’? Or is it to serve God’s officers on Earth—by swelling their coffers? Tithe on, little dreamers … you may be piling up pelf on Earth for your church but thou art piling up greater investments in Heaven** (A much better win/win … you just try stuffing a Pope, bishop, or priest through the eye of a needle~!)

** And they’ll all be waiting for you at God’s table.

IF I MUST

RAISE THE BANNER

Skyborne piggy copyon behalf of Reality, then let me start here—

“… If I can use the evidence for the Big Bang, the fine-tuning, the origin of biological information, the Cambrian explosion, the habitability fine-tuning and irreducible complexity to argue for theism …”

for source of quote: CLICK HERE

—and as best I can, as patiently as I can, without naughty words let me ask:

How might any evidence for the Big Bang be utilised in defence of theism?

  • God actually (was/is) the Big Bang itself?
  • God created Himself from zilch in order to blow Himself up?*

I MIGHT ADD

that I don’t think ol’ God is much on time-and-motion or even simple efficiency—if it were me I’d have cut out a lot of redundant effort and created the present ultimates (us~!) right at the beginning. Properly, without needing ol’ Satan and that silly apple …

“Hey, Argus!”

(Oops …) “Yes, Mr Satan, Sir?”

“Ever thought to ask who it was created ME, hmmmm?”

NO CONTRADICTIONS,

imagesand thank God that

I never attract enough readers to trigger conflict. In the meantime, here’s a snippet I’ve just snup—

“I like having evidence. I hate having to take stands for Biblical morality without evidence. If I can use the evidence for the Big Bang, the fine-tuning, the origin of biological information, the Cambrian explosion, the habitability fine-tuning and irreducible complexity to argue for theism, and then argue for the resurrection based on early sources and minimal facts, then I should have the exact same quality of data when defending moral values. If the Bible says something, I should be able to look at the best research and find that the Bible is correct.”

—and I offer it as grounds for discussion. I’m a busy dog myself … but if anyone is interested I snup that snippet from—

“Argus!”

(Now I’m for it …) “Yes, Mr God, Sir?”

“I knew before I created Creation that you’d be writing that—thank you, Dog.”

“You’re welcome, Sir.” (Phew—thank God He’s not grumpy this time …)

COLLECTIVISM

devil-2 BOPCollectivism is one of

the Deadliest Sins.

I define a ‘sin’ as ‘an act against humanity’ — whilst not bothering to define the word humanity. (Try that and we go on forever, losing ourselves in obfuscations.)

We can leave the biggest sinners of all—the simpering blood-soaked religious—to flabble about with their own definitions, most often involving offending a mythical deity of some bloody ilk*.

EVERY INTEREST

seeking—

  • survival
  • growth
  • power
  • absolute control

—seems eventually to use a myth of some kind or another as justification for offences against basic human decencies. The more ancient, the better. No?

GIVEN

that folks want power, wealth, sex, control, and free time … a religion can be the ideal means. Control a per’s soul and you control the physical body—the per** becomes your slave. (You get quite rich—the Pope’s officers have been doing it for centuries, the mad mullahs of Islam likewise, the Nazis did it and so too Lenin’s cultural offspring … and endless others.)

CUTTING TO THE GRITTY

The good ol’ Nazis are the prime example of making a religion out of inhumanity.

Antisemitism (also spelled anti-semitism or anti-Semitism) is hostility to, prejudice, or discrimination against Jews.[1][2][3] A person who holds such positions is called an antisemite. Antisemitism is generally considered to be a form of racism.[4][5] It has also been characterized as a political ideology which serves as an organizing principle and unites disparate groups which are opposed to liberalism.[6]

—Quote above is from Wikipedia

I am not an anti-semitic. I don’t limit myself:

I am anti-religion.

Organised religion, that is … but so long as a belief uses no form of force in its propagations I can tolerate it—fouling the defenceless minds of the innocent young, to me, is force …

* Which deity being in absentia means that we are in fact offending merely His/Her ‘representatives on Earth’. (Such offending in too many places can get you your lolly lopped, or worse. Much worse …)

** ‘Per’ … a new-speak word embracing all possible human sexes/genders and interpretations. (A ‘newspeak’ term as an all-embracing politically acceptable Gender Neutral, flowing naturally on from common usage of the word ‘person’.)

OLD NICK’s HOUSE?

The Satanic Temple

has seven fundamental tenets: down finger

  1. One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.
  2. The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
  3. One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
  4. The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo your own.
  5. Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
  6. People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and resolve any harm that may have been caused.
  7. Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.[20]

Despite the rather appealing name I could almost go to bat for a bunch like this. Really. Even if the average punter these days has to look up words like ‘nobility’ and (horrors!) … thought. (And demonstrates fallibility by being unable to spel, even in a good cause.)

So there’s hope yet, Argie?
