Now to me, its all a joke as I subscribe to NO religion, No organized belief, and NO REASON to align myself with either side of the isle…because as far as I’m concerned THEY’RE BOTH WRONG. This is more of the media doing their level best to keep Americans divided instead of united on issues; and, religion apparently is one of the more favorite, and most divisive TOOLS/VICES that NEVER SEEMS TO FAIL…despite our amazing access to information and education. Apparently, Stewart feels the same way I do concerning the behavior displayed by this new religion. By the way, Stewart himself is an ADMITTED ATHEIST.
You have to admit, the religion of “Atheism” is beginning to get aggressive and nearly as ridiculous, IF NOT MORE SO, as the previously established religions before it. As I see it, a TRUE Atheist would be an individual that is not affected by the idea of a God versus a Non-God, nor would it be an issue because its not something that would even engage them on a peripheral level because it simply, “does not exist.” However, Atheism is now one of the most aggressive and ego-based religions which claim their own intellectual superiority based on the monotheistic or multi-deistic faiths that they DO NOT BELIEVE. Catch 22…in their failed logic, they seem to forget that their entire belief system ONLY exists as a counterpoint to the religions that THEY DENY. And by bringing more attention to themselves, they bring attention towards, AND REINFORCE, the very dogmas that they seek to destroy in themselves and others. (Chess can be quite deceptive…EVEN TO THE PLAYER WHO BELIEVES THEMSELVES IN CONTROL.) Isn’t it amazing how intellectualism, or, someone who prides themselves on being educated and uplifted by the standards of other monkeys, has been one of the quickest paths to the doorway of the ego? As if validity from the collective has ever been something that is represented as TRUTH. How I could count the ways that society has been mistaken as a result of falsely engineered, pre-built belief structures incurred by the limited thinking of mankind, only for only later to be proven wrong by the devices of their own creations…example: “The World is Flat.” Many use this analogy as a point of reference for those who shut their minds to higher possibilities. WHY??? Because its effective and demonstrates how an entire movement of incorrect thinking can influence the minds of CONTINENTS. In fact, in the past, if one were to have challenged this belief system, they could have found themselves on the wrong end of a guillotine. -That’s how powerful BELIEF, whether RIGHT OR WRONG can be…
-I will be the first to admit, that some of the Atheistic foundations of “belief,” as it were, have points of validity. But, until the Atheists themselves can come forward and admit that they don’t have the locks on reality as they claim, then BELIEF IS their ONLY foundation for support, because the “Scientific community” is learning more and more that things aren’t as they appear. I post examples of this nearly daily to weekly on my Facebook page. Those who depend on science to sculpt their realities and thinking processes will ALWAYS be behind the curve of Universal thought.
Now, lets delve into the psychology of the angry, psychologically, and intellectually superior “Atheist.” -If you find yourself having an angry response to the terminology used here, then you might actually QUALIFY as the above-described individual…as Atheists have NO PROBLEM in returning language such as this, AND WORSE, in their race to judge the sanity, intellect, and awareness of free-thinking individuals. Yes…we are all WELCOME to believe what we CHOOSE to believe without the added judgments of those who feel themselves QUALIFIED to attach their own personal labels to our essence. -And then you must ask…AM I, THE AUTHOR, DOING THE SAME THING??? -Not exactly.- Rather, I am demonstrating the inconsistencies within an ideology which seeks to AGAIN to displace, and then pass judgment on the ideologies of others without entertaining the full-spectrum of TRUTHS born from BOTH.
Often, you will find Atheists taking up positions of superiority, very much like those with a Christian mindset who have never read anything of historical quality beyond the Bible itself. In fact, much of the Atheist mindset is one which often chooses the position of, “Devil’s advocate,” against the bible rather than support their theories with actual scientific discoveries which would provide contradictory evidence to the religion in which they disagree. To further this point, the majority of Atheism’s points of reference regarding arguments against religion isn’t substantiated by science or mathematics, rather, they tend to focus on the inconsistencies within “the bible itself,” which shows the stuck mind-set of Atheists and Theists alike.
For instance: Do you sit and complain every day of your life that kids still believe in Santa Claus despite the fact that we know it to be a BOLDFACED LIE??? Is this something that eats you up to the point where you need to organize and create groups in order to destroy it? Nope, for the most part, no one gives Santa a second thought until the time of year comes to once again to pretend in his existence for the sake of all the “good little children.”
The Atheist argument against my last statement would be: But Mike, those who believe in Santa aren’t affecting the way that we perceive the world. Santa believers don’t lobby, nor do they have an influence in world politics.
My answer: Really? Santa doesn’t shape the way that you live, or perceive the world? Well…how about the many Walt Disney movies made and specifically designed to instill the belief of Santa Claus in your children? How about all of the commercials that you and your family are bombarded with each year which not only influence the choices of gifts made by your children, but also influence the choices you make when purchasing for other loved-ones? How about the fact that you must BUDGET every year to ensure that your children get “The gifts of their choice?” Better yet, how about the fact that two, sometimes 3 months before Christmas even begins, you’re hearing commercials on the radio and seeing advertisements REMINDING you to get prepared to SPEND YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY for the Holidays? If you think Santa hasn’t somehow affected the reality that you perceive, then you’re delusional. ISN’T IT AMAZING HOW MUCH A MYTH, OR A LIE, CAN COMPLETELY CONTROL THE WAY THAT YOUR WORLD OPERATES? You might want to give some deeper thought into that last question.
Atheist Response: The next maneuver here is for the Atheist to remind me that the very day we celebrate as Christmas is based entirely upon the birth of Christ, henceforth making Christmas a Christian Holiday. First, as most Atheists are already aware of…we have no proof that Christ was born on this day. Secondly, if Christmas were truly based on Christ, then wouldn’t he be the POPULAR guy with endless gifts riding the sleigh of reindeer while scaling people’s chimneys and getting ripped on eggnog? Instead, Christ is rarely mentioned during this Western Holiday and Christmas has turned into a celebration of the material which is everything that Christ stood against.
But, lets see how the BIBLE depicted Jesus’s stance on trade and material possessions…
“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves.”
-Mathew 19:21- A man of wealth asks Jesus what he would need to do in order to enter the kingdom of heaven:
Jesus said unto him, “If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell all that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.”
Jesus realized the perverse nature of commerce because it is based around GREED and SELF-INTEREST. I highly doubt that if Jesus came back today that he would be too pleased to find that his “supposed birthday” became about a fat guy in a red suit all souped up on something strong enough to make his reindeer fly in the sky and deliver children material possessions through a chimney. Whatever Christmas currently represents (PROFIT) has nothing to do with the supposed “Christian Holiday,” in which is was born; but the sad part is this, MOST CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE IT AS SUCH and readily accept this modern perversion of the birth of their supposed, “God.” Hypocrisy can be found in every religion, institution, and BELIEF and unfortunately, the bad now outweighs the good.
I WILL TELL YOU THIS NOW…ENTIRE ECONOMIES ARE BASED OFF OF THIS HOLIDAY AND IF YOU’RE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THAT CHRISTMAS HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH A CHRISTIAN GOD NAMED JESUS, THEN IT IS NO WONDER WHY OUR CIVILIZATION HAS CORRODED TO THIS UNBELIEVABLE POINT. We’ve gotten to the point where we believe that up is down and right is left…
Nonetheless, back to Atheism.
Today’s Atheist appears to be a “CLOSET THEIST,” who simply chose to reject the control and confusion instilled upon them by organized religion. If there in fact is no God in existence, then TRULY, there’s nothing to RAGE AGAINST, therefore, nothing to think about. Consider the individual who ALWAYS uses derogatory language against something that they supposedly deplore. Just like a monkey beating on his chest or like a peacock during the mating ritual, they will make a display so that everyone knows that they are the loudest, strongest, and the most staunch enemy of their chosen object of hatred. Then comes that unfortunate day where EVERYONE FINDS OUT THAT THIS POOR VICTIM OF EGO WAS THE VERY ENEMY THAT THIS PERSON PREACHED MOST AGAINST…it happens EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY. ( examples: Rep. Foley, Televangelists, Pedophile Priests. I could use other names besides Foley, but the list is too long). Any time you expend energy in the process of hate, you are subject to becoming the very thing that you despise. So, you might as well live and let live.
Despite the “Closet Theist’s” inherent hatred of the existence of religion, they seem to be some of the most educated when it comes to religion itself as they were either previous believers, or intellectuals who purposefully learned the path of their perceived “enemies,” for biblical ammunition in debate. These are the types who study the bible for the expressed purpose of dominating others in religious or theological discussions. I too am guilty of this logic in the fact that I have learned religion for the sake of pointing out inconsistencies, but, that is where the similarities end. And although I am a nonbeliever of religion as a viable source to explain our creator, I have no personal Atheist claims or affiliation. I do believe in a master creator of this particular Matrix, however, religion has absolutely failed in its attempt to explain it and has established a system for spiritual control rather than of collective freedom and liberation. As it were, many Atheists are usually as equally familiar with DOCTRINE as are the “fundamentalists” in whom they disagree. If nothing else, simply by studying the “faith” and committing words to memory, they have “ACCEPTED” and have been “INFECTED” from this programming whether they are consciously aware of it or not; thereby making them just as susceptible and suggestible as anyone whom they view are trapped within “ignorance” from adhering to religion. If one were to really contemplate the depth of this, they would understand that this would explain why the behavior of these Atheists are no different than that of which they despise…their belief systems are trapped in the exact same roots of confusion that their Christian predecessors are. In fact, Atheists would have no cause or right to complain at all if the religions in which they DON’T BELIEVE IN, didn’t exist. The existence of Atheism is totally dependent upon the existence of organized religion. One could not survive without the other.
Atheism is becoming organized now. Atheism is seeking to influence and infiltrate the functioning of our Government as another special interest group in the very fashion of the Religions that they so vehemently despise. Since Atheism is an ideology, I must ask…with the behavior we just witnessed in the above link, what separates them as being more “socially evolved,” as they tend to believe, than any other religion seeking to control the thoughts and actions of a society?
If you ask me, its rare to ever see a true practitioner of any ideology. WHY? Because all ideologies have been created, and then subsequently INFECTED by the impurities of mankind and faulty interpretations.
We will never know the fullest scale of the grand functioning within the Universe as long as we remain in a finite matrix which sells us the illusion of death, but, to me…an Atheist is the equivalent to a flea which constantly denies the existence of the dog. You are a living, breathing example of both creation and evolution. You are special, but, no more special than those who share your existence. And, if they share this existence with you, then their point of view must be heard and respected, whether right or wrong. Do not attempt to control how people view the world or take away their faith unless you can provide them PROOF of something more tangible and REAL. The Universe gave us all free will, and limiting someone else’s free will goes against the very wishes of the self aware engine in which created it. The idea of personal freedom should exist within your personal mainframe whether you believe in God or not.
