Tina Arradondo - ALL ALONG

Some people just have it.
What's it?
The Gift.
The gift that allows one to open up their hearts, pour their blood on the world, and live to tell it. You have to be in tune with the Truth, in order to be that free...

I recently met a Woman who has that gift. Tina Arradondo is her name, and she's quite the wordsmith, if you ask me. I haven't written poetry on a regular basis for a while now, so when I see it coming from others, it sparks me to jump back in with both feet...reading the following I made a quantum leap forward...Tina's writing, "ALL ALONG", is straight outta 120, the degree that came to mind is "I came to the Wilderness of North America by myself." Tina isn't afraid to ask herself those questions that most people run from when they're alone. The questions that you Know the answer to, but
sometimes wish you didn't. It always helps though when someone else comes to the same conclusions that you did, let's you Know that you're not All Alone...

ALL ALONG Written by Tina Arradondo

What's on the other side sometimes I know is not for me,
I can see through some mountains so clear and perfectly...

Is it my fault that I have wisdom that others may see as strange?
I feel things that others don't and so I claim it cause It can't change.

Is your death predetermined at the time you were conceived?
Or do you believe you can make choices that can change what's
meant to be?

God said "BE" and there I was, put on this path so am I the judge
of how I view what's in my path whether it's money, sex, lies or

The path I'm on is full of twists and turns and mountains I can't
climb. When I say can't, I do mean CAN'T. It doesn't matter
if I tried.

My mind is perfect. The world is flawed. I was created by Divine
Law. It's logical that I'd feel radical if to me the 'norm ain't normal.

I feel, "whats being bought should've never been sold", You feel, "what's
being sold should've never been bought". So what's real?

I feel, "Whats being taught should've never been told" and you feel
"what's being told should've never been taught", so what's real?

To act without thought, then react when the consequences unfold
is insanity to me

We're looking to the future to answer questions that have been
answered in the, "What causes pollution?" Gas! and a
mask ain't the solution.

Arguing over problems that were never meant to be,
the evolution of man, Damn, when will Truth just evolve.

To think rational is beautiful. War is complicated
Peace is simple. And simply put...The ones that know it
don't control it but the ones in control, DO know. So now what?

If the beginning and the ending were already written then is there
room for shifting? Or are we just drifting?????

We have choices to make, voices to take back.
We've failed in fiction, but will prevail in facts.

God is Real, Religion is false. Lies are always easily found in
this life but the truth?.... So easily lost.

We've been on pause for too long. Push play or just stop re-
winding the song. Stop compromising with wrong when you knew right
all along.

It's a classic case and such a drastic mistake to trade a coal mine
for plastic because it's easier to lift and sift...WAIT!! I'll
take the coal with the dirt, I'll sift til it hurts.

I'll take that boulder, carry it through life on my shoulders if in the
end I deliver a diamond to the Giver of Life as my gift.. Beauty is in the eye
of the beholder.
Or is it???

I see beauty in love, while others see beauty in hate. So the definition
of beauty is up for debate.

The smoke in your eyesight creates the illusion of grey. The world
is indeed black and white. My mind spins and truth wins but it's
not in the fight.

The battles not really between wrong or right. It's about how you
viewed things on the path you were on. It's about YOU and what
you thought of it all, all along.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights the full text of which appears in the following pages. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories."


Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,

Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,

Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge,

Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.

Acid Blood Kills -- Alkaline Blood Lives
A Simple Approach Using Baking Soda to Create Healthy Alkaline Blood Levels
by Dusty R. Green, M.Ed., Research Scientist/Author

This article originates from an email inquiry I received concerning the John Kanzius invention. He built an apparatus that sends radio waves into humans with the claim that it may kill cancer cells -- sounds promising.

In the email inquiry, I was asked to comment on the CBS 60 Minutes news story about John Kanzius that ran April 13, 2008.

My Response: My best guess is negative ions (or, maybe a relationship). One form of negative ions is the unseen particles of electricity that come in with thunderstorms and momentarily make us feel like “hippies on drugs” (not that I know anything about that). A simple Internet search on negative ions revealed the information (ions, not hippies). Research shows that negative ions put the body in a temporary alkaline pH state. Most humans are in an acid pH state ... cancer wards are full of ‘em.

Theoretically (in my humble opinion, of course), negative ions have a common bond to the positive feelings we get from meditation. Regular/consistent meditation is associated with relaxed states-of-mind -- a stress antagonist. Stress is a major contributor to acid pH in our blood/bodies. As we buffer our acid-state in consistent manners (meditation, smart eats, baking soda, etc.), a healthier alkaline condition becomes the norm. In addition, nutritional supplements are assimilated more effectively/efficiently in an alkaline body.

Bacteria and Virus Refuse to Live in Alkalinity
This article is one of the best I’ve found on the pH factor in relationship to many disease-states. Harmful bacteria, virus, herpes (cold sores, etc.) and cancer, thrive in acidity. Stress, bad eating habits, pesticides, alcohol, pollution, etcetera, turn our bodies into acid smorgasbords -- the perfect environment for destroying our bodies in a slow/painful manner. In addition, heartburn, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and more are well-known maladies related to acid blood levels. The bottom line ... bacteria and virus will vacate your premises to find a more suitable acid-home as long as you keep your body in an of alkaline-state.

Of all Things ... Baking Soda?
Studies in respected medical journals worldwide consistently support the use of a simple dirt-cheap product for reversing acidity -- baking soda. Since there’s no money in baking soda for drug companies, it’s excluded from medical school curriculum and/or associated health training/education.

As an interesting side-note, most odors we experience are bacteria related. A simple test is to sprinkle a bit of baking soda in your stinky shoes and/or under your smelly arm-pits -- odor diminishes readily. Odor from areas of the body that stay wet and/or dark for awhile are a result of/or caused by bacteria and/or the symbiotic relationship it has with fungus. Fungus (vaginal candidiasis, jock itch, athletes foot, etc.) is odor-producing. Cavities and bacteria (bad breath?) are best-buddies, too. Sugar creates an acidic environment in the mouth, thus, dentists recommend avoiding sugar-related foods.

And, stop using sponges to wash your dishes! Sponges typically stay wet for extended periods which encourage bacteria to multiply exponentially within minutes (Discovery Science channel).

Athletes -- Faster, Harder, Stronger
Lactic acid is a well-known by-product of the exercising muscle. To a large degree, it is responsible for muscular soreness and pre-mature fatigue. Sport drinks do nothing to address the acid issue. In fact, they add to the acid problem due to the large amount of sugar ingested -- sugar drinks are acid drinks. The same goes for fruit drinks (the actual sweet part of the fruit is replaced with sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup). It's no wonder regular exercisers have a hard time recovering from injuries -- the injury is surrounded by acid.

Bananas, oranges, potatoes and melons are must-staples of athletes' general diet due to their high potassium content. Yes, they contain sugar, however, it's in a complex carbohydrate form (less inflammatory) that is a longer lasting fuel for the exercising muscle. They alkalize once consumed, however, baking soda water is a stronger and more direct alkalizing agent and may mean the difference between 1st and 2nd in an athletic event.

Bottom-line: As a general guideline, and based on personal research, the following is my recipe for adjusting acid-blood toward the direction of healthier alkaline-blood pH. Below are two separate examples -- do one or the other but not both:
  • Mix 1/4-1/3 teaspoon of baking soda in a 12-16 ounce glass of tap or bottled water and consume 1 glass in the AM and 1 in the PM and swish it in your mouth (cavity prevention) before swallowing daily. In addition to, and at anytime when you experience heartburn, an extra glass may be necessary.
  • This method is easy, convenient, and you're more likely to be consistent with it. If you drink distilled or reverse osmosis water daily as your main source of water (cleanest there is, but acidic), mix 3/4 to 1 teaspoon/gallon. Tap and bottled waters are not as acidic (but very dirty) so you may want to adjust them to a lower 1/2 teaspoon/gallon. You can make adjustments with pH papers below.

Refrain from consuming straight baking soda and/or strong mixtures of the same. It can numb taste-buds and cause the skin from the roof of your mouth to peel (personal experience) – not painful, just bothersome. In other words, strong alkalinity can burn you on its end of the scale similar to strong acids such as sulfuric or muriatic that burn on the acid side of the scale.

The above recommendation is for the non-exerciser and/or those who consume the average western diet. Dedicated life extensionists (typically consume lots of minerals), vegetarians, vegans, and/or those who consume more fruits and vegetables than the average person, may want to use a bit less baking soda. Their bodies tend to be a bit more alkaline than the average person. Your barometer can be the consistent use of pH strips/papers. They give you the information you need to make adjustments with the baking soda you put in your water.

Oranges and Lemons
When using pH papers to measure fruits and/or vegetables, they typically show-up in the acid range. Oranges and lemons are good examples. Touching the pH paper directly to the opened/peeled fruit reads acid. However, when consumed, they become alkaline as a result of the digestive process from the resulting residue. Fruits and vegetables have a special relationship with our bodies -- they are transformed into an alkaline base as they are burned to ash
(as are most fruits and vegetables). Most other food sources do not have this special relationship with our bodies.

Sodium (and Potassium) Concern
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda contains 300 mgs. (milligrams) of sodium -- not much to be concerned about. Most of us typically consume 2,000-3,000 mgs. of salt (sodium chloride) daily. Studies show the relationship between sodium and potassium to be the high blood pressure culprit. Generally, where there is high sodium in populations, there is low potassium. Potassium rich foods generally cost more than sodium rich foods, thus, impoverished areas have a higher incidence of stroke and high blood pressure. The scientific literature shows that if potassium is increased and sodium stays the same, blood pressure and strokes drop. A 2:1 ratio of potassium to sodium should be a strong consideration for anyone. Our government allows only 99 mgs. to be put in a daily dose where supplements are concerned. Raw fruits and vegetables are some of the best sources of potassium. This is one of the few areas where food provides more micro-nutrients than nutritional supplements.

Potassium can improve athletic performance in those who are deficient. Those who train 3-4 hours daily can lose up to 700 mgs. from sweat -- about the same amount in one banana. Typically, food manufacturers transform 3.5 ounces of fresh raw peas containing 380 mgs. of potassium and 2 mgs. of sodium into 236 mgs. of sodium. At the same time, they decrease the potassium content to 160 mgs. via the canning process. The same thing applies to other common vegetables. You can buy a salt substitute from your grocery store which is potassium chloride (as opposed to sodium chloride). One of the most popular brands is called No Salt.

Measuring With pH Paper/Strips
There are 2 easy ways to monitor your pH -- urine and saliva. Whether you test your urine or saliva, the pH value of either varies throughout the day based on many variables (food, liquids, stress, nutritional supplement intake, etc.). Therefore, it is necessary to check it 4-5 times/day so you can establish an average. Personally, I have found the urine method to be the most accurate. If your average is still acidic (or, gets too alkaline) adjust the amount of baking soda accordingly. You can use pH paper/strips or a pH meter. I’ve always preferred the strips for convenience.

Again, for anyone wanting to use baking soda, reading this article is paramount for developing a better understanding/appreciation for its many uses.

Who are the 85%?

...Sheep. That's what comes to mind when I think about the 85%, also known as the masses. The masses are fed (11*), shorn (12*), domesticated (13*), led (14*), bred (28*), ultimately mastered by their owners. They have no say so in what happens with their lives (or so they think), so they subconsciously continue daily to bring bad conditions on themselves, AND have been taught to consciously blame someone else for them. They're straying sheep trained to follow the smell of shit to the wolves' den. And they don't try to find out what happened to the missing sheep when the shepherds tell them. Instead, they believe in the wolf in sheep's clothing on face value...

The thought that it's within your own Power to change this, had been Destroyed before they even had a good chance to use it. If a sheep knew what it's wool was worth, would they sell it for cheap? When the 5% build with the 85%, they leave with their wool, unless they try & play wolf. When the 10% build USING the 85%, they are the naked I that can hardly detect the fine mist of what the fuck just happened....

Then there's the Black Sheep, the so-called Build Powers. Those are the 85% who are more dominant than the masses within the masses. They have more magnetic than the rest, and are in agreement with the shepherds. They follow the shepherds. And that's where they fall short. They are easy to be led. This is because they may be Civilized, Vegan, and (relatively) mentally & physically fit or whatever. They obviously though, don't know their origin in this world, and worship another person who they can't EVER know as well as they could know themselves. This is really because they still have fear...of the wolves, and of their Own Self (13*, 1-36). The 14*, 1-36 is W.F. Muhammad answering for himself, not for YOU or I! The Knowledge that you have of yourself, & this goes for 85% 10 5%, man woman child, black white grey, it don't matter the Knowledge that YOU have of YOUR Self is YOUR Origin in this world. It's a real simple qualifier, either you being yourself, or you ain't. One who can't truly see Self as Original in and of themselves is still blind to themselves, even though their eyes have been opened to the currents(Now), they ain't of Allah's Nation....

The destroy powers are the ones who don't give a fuck. The Rams. So-called Destroy Powers have made even Allah question whether a Black Man can be the "worst devil". They would be the 10% within the 85%. One example would be Muslims selling the wrong foods daily to the 85%, while said foods just so happen to be haram (forbidden) for THE-M (THE-Muslims 1-36). Is there any Muslim other than Righteous? Um, yeah. There's Original Muslims, Muslim sons, & just plain Muslims. Destroy powers ain't limited to Muslims, it's anyone born 20 miles outside (crazy as hell). The destroy powers can't keep & obey the Laws of Islam because they really don't fuckn' know 'em, & most don't or can't care to. They're wolves in sheep's clothing programed to go for the shepherds & the black sheep (28*, 1-40), What they also don't know is that they only ramming their heads against a wall in the process.

All of that said, no matter what "brand"/said nation the 85%er wears, they are ALL being led to same END (the slaughterhouse), & most won't know until it's too late (life flashing before their eyes)...

So, how DO we stop the culling off of the world's population, which has doubled in the last 35-50 years (do the math on THAT)? By Taking Ownership & Be Rooted in Our Culture of Freedom that the 85% lack, but want & need more than anything else. Showing & Proving that the grass is greener on our side of defense, as "opposed" to Yacub's world that can be quite off-ensive in regards to Basic (home) Training & General Civilization (14*, 1-14)...The 85% NEED to see & hear the ones who have Life, in order to want it for themselves...How else are they gonna know? It's bad enough that the 10% lead 'em to death, it's even worse when they shepherd each other...Somebody has to teach 'em, & it's better Us than them...

Born Degree, 1-40, Part 2

Peace... To born is to reveal, bring forth ciphers into reality. This degree is the 1st one to mention the 85%, 10%, and the 5%. The fact that Elijah was able to answer the question regarding the 85%, implies that he already knew who they were; that Light had already been revealed...

In a nutshell, the 85%, 10%, and 5% are the people mentioned of the 67 degrees before this Born degree, starting with the devil (2*, 1-10) who taught the 85% (the victims of the 6*, 1-14) that a mystery god brought all of those 67 degrees teach into existence. This was done with the purpose of concealing the 1st degree, Who is the Original Man?".

This works to their benefit, for they aren’t allowed to blatantly say who the True & Living God is (9*, 1-14), as a condition of their knowing. So they can & do teach that God is ANYone or ANYthing other than the Son of Man, the Supreme Being Asiatic Black Man! The next degree (10*, 1-40) is the result of the Almighty True & Living God being revealed as the Son of Man, thus reiterating that 1st degree and revealing a Truth once concealed...

The 10% keeps the 85% illiterate with the idea of a mystery god, and has them worshiping something that they can’t even understand...this results in psychosis & personality disorder, as the believer loses his grip on reality, as well as his touch with the civilized world, making him lose his mental life & powers...

The 85% knows that shit happens, but believe the cause to be outside of self, and seek refuge in it. They don’t know that they are the cause (8*, 1-40), & it’s not until later that they discover that they’ve been lied to by the 10% & stripped of their Powers, and this is why they are continually bringing "hell date" on themselves (13*, 1-40)...They may or may not recover from the shock...

The 85% are slaves, fallen victims to the 1-36, under control of the 10% (the trader). The 5% teach them (the 85%), but they would rather mimic the 10%’s face value. That’s why the devil teaches the 85% that a mystery god brings all this, because once they stop believing that & LET the 5% teach them of their own free will, the fact that there is no sword over their heads is revealed (9*, 1-14) & They are Born into the reality of God (9*, 1-40), they advance to the next degree (La ilaha 'ill Allah 10*, 1-40), ideally making it to Pluto and beyond...

How do I see self in this degree? To counter the fact that the 10% want to conceal who I Am, I give myself no choice other than revealing it daily. Allah Universal is an open book to all those around me, teaching those who choose to learn through plain honesty..."they" can’t bring me a lie as long as I’m revealing the Truth...
Peace...Allah Universal

Born Degree, 1-40

The Insanity of Religion, and How Organized Religion Depends on Your Ignorance

You've Been Lied To By Jake Atkisson

Preface-I don't have any profound stories of miracles to share with you. Indeed, this writing is not thus written with the intention of converting you to or away from any faith, though if you are a person of firmly-convicted beliefs, you will find those beliefs challenged in that faith's basis here, and unapologetically so.What I intend with this article is to present challenge and clarification to the lies surrounding the methods and underlying intentions of monotheistic religions. I will not resort to high-minded verbosity or excessive scientific phrasings in this rendering, as it is also my intention that it be readable by those who have not purchased a quarter-million dollar vocabulary or fluency in latin, greek, hebrew or anything at all beyond a simple, pedestrian fluency in english. Indeed, and throughout the entirety as must be clarified, I intend to make you think, good reader. Lastly stated though it is, it is first and foremost amongst my intentions; I intend to make you think, and to provide to you incontrovertible reasons to do so. Whether you find yourself agreeing with my primary assertion, being the title of this article, or not is entirely for you to determine, and to determine this for yourself, you must think. What I do not intend with this article is to replace one battery of lies with another, to replace one faulty way of thinking with another or to trick you into agreeing with me. Trickery is the tool of con-men, the faulty, the defective and the erroneous, and it has neither welcome nor utilization here. **************************************************************************************************************1.
1. They lie to you; Why

There is a fairly decent chance that you aren't a stupid or foolish person. Monotheistic orthodoxy assumes not only that you are, but in so treating you, strives to convince you that you are precisely that; stupid and foolish. It is assumed by all monotheisms that you are imperfect before them, and only through them can you pursue betterment.

It accomplishes this by numerous methods, nearly all of which are extremely predatory in nature. Please note, dear reader, that 'predatory' does not necessarily mean 'violent', though neither does it exclude it; rather, predatory means that it seeks to exploit weaknesses, to create weaknesses to exploit, to attack, to assault, to stifle or, in the broadest sense, to antagonistically seek to force change upon you.

Why do they do this? Monotheisms are, by their manner of organization and assimilation into cultures and societies, rather newer than polytheisms. They rose to power by merit of force-of-arm, force of repetition and manifest willingness combined with ability to crush the opposition in a fashion that built their own foundation. I assert that there is not a monotheism practiced in any wide-spread manner that is not, in some directly discernible fashion, built on the ashes of any number of religions that came before it.

Why do they lie to you? They lie to you because that is the basis of their structuring; to sell to you the lies as truth and convince you to look upon all other information beyond their own as lies, irrespective of whether it be factually true or not. I will provide to you here a definition of the word 'Cult', and attempt thereafter to explain why I define the Big Three monotheisms of our modern world as nothing more than hugely damaging cults that have, for centuries, been tremendously out-of-hand.

Characteristics of a Cult- As assembled by
Janja Lalich, Ph.D. & Michael D. Langone, Ph.D

1. The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.

2. Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished. 3. Mind-altering practices (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, and debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).

4. The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (for example, members must get permission to date, change jobs, marry"or leaders prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, whether or not to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth).

5. The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members (for example, the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar"or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).

6. The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.

7. The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations).

8. The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members' participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (for example, lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities).

9. The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.

10. Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.

11. The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.

12. The group is preoccupied with making money.

13. Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.

14. Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.

15. The most loyal members (the "true believers) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave (or even consider leaving) the group.

These are the assembled and briefly defined characteristics of a cult. Now, it must be said that the characteristics of a cult, as defined by my fellows in science above, are objectively listed; they do not indicate whether these things are beneficial or harmful. I assert that they are almost always ultimately harmful.

I assert this because any one of those points, in practice, empowers only a select few (the leaders, the heads, the cause; be it a person or an idea, or both, or elsewise- whatever fills that top-of-the-ladder position; the God-figure, if you prefer) at the distinct expense and detriment of the individual. But how do they do these things? How have so many people been lied to?The methods, as well as my observed understandings regarding motive and underlying purpose, I shall provide for you here-on.

2. Belittlement of your capacity to function without them.

Presenting irrational 'facts' to you in justification of this claim often follow various methods of belittling, invalidating and discrediting everything you've ever perceived, thought or felt that wasn't in agreement with the monotheistic doctrine . Example: The Christian bible is possessed of a number of stories in which it is portrayed that the person who thought for himself was wrong and stupid, whereas if he did what god commanded (no matter what he thought or personally wanted), he was exalted. Moreover, these stories and obvious parables are thrust forth by many as 'fact', thus attempting to prove their validity when they say that you too shall be wrong and stupid if you don't do what god wants you to do. Can a book render itself correct by having "This is true" written in it, as the Bible, the Qur'an and the Torah do?

Will hobbits appear in the world if you write "This book is true" inside the cover of a copy of 'The Hobbit'?

Sadly, outside of a religious context, this same manner of tactic is used by advertisers to make you feel as if you'll be less, sub-standard or stupid if you don't make the 'Obviously Correct' decision (with advertisers, it's to buy their products; with religions, it's to do what their orthodoxy demands).

3. Denigration of your self-worth.

In order to condition you into the system, predatory religions (just like predatory cults do) must first take your proverbial knees out from under you. What use would a religion be to you if you were a self-confident, emotionally stable person? What answers could it provide to you that you would feel a 'need' for? None, and thus the foremost enemy of religion is anything that promotes your self-worth, self respect and emotional stability outside the strict rules of it's orthodoxy.

Such things as education, self-motivated introspection, critical thinking and personal experience are all potentially the very pathways to self-worth, and so it is along these channels that any religion will literally assault you, and they will do so mercilessly by attacking you under the guise of friendship.

The God-based religions (Christianity, Islam and Judaism) can identify to you, dear reader, exactly how they do this; all three of those religions assert that you were born evil because the original man and woman disobeyed god. They will assert that you were born evil and wrong; you had no chance to begin with. It was over before it began. If you're like most people, you grew up hearing this from virtually everyone who, like you, grew up hearing it. You are being lied to, but the religions themselves demand that you be stripped down before you can be built back up, or as they are often so fond of putting it, "Reborn".

Clearly, they can't mean this literally, and they don't; they mean psychologically and emotionally, and all under the pretense that it's for your own good. That you have to for god to love you.

Love comes with strings attached?

4. The Bait-and-Switch

Con-artists trying to sell you the Golden Gate Bridge will expect that you will be skeptical, and they will use various tactics to try to compel you to buy what they're selling with this expectation in mind. Similarly, religious doctrine expects you to be skeptical, and it is presented with those same elements in mind.

Let us contrast the methods of a con-man against those of Christian orthodoxy.The Con-man will put to you a hard-sell; unbelievable low price, typically with a very short timeframe in which to decide (or to make an informed decision) and lots of emphasis on how many others would be willing to pay twice that much, along with references to how much of a favor he's doing you in offering it to you and how you'll be the talk of the town if you act fast.

Christian orthodoxy will put you to a similarly hard-sell, once they've made you doubt your self-worth sufficiently (or found you in a state in which you were doubting your own self-worth anyway); an unbelievable saving-grace clause ("You were born evil and worthless, but 'lo, we have the cure!"), typically with a weighty reminder that you'd better decide before you die or it's eternity in a lake of fire for you, usually with lots of emphasis on how unreal it is that you could even think about turning down what Jesus 'did for you', along with references of how many people 'just like you' are wildly happy and successful after 'finding Jesus'.

I rest my case on this one.

5. Pavlov's Dog Was Fed A Better Class of Crap

Maybe some of you are familiar with the study Ivan Pavlov did some decades back, in which he trained his dog to salivate whenever it heard a bell ring. Automatic response conditioning is what it is, and once religious orthodoxy has got it's hooks into you, it will suck you in even further by providing you with "All the answers you could ever need" in the form of the bible, which they will continuously urge you to study, memorize, pour over, meditate on and wrap your entire life around as swiftly and completely as possible.

There are a lot of psychological factors involved in this. Honestly, the psychological research that could be conducted on the process of religiosity would likely fill at least as many volumes and decades as does the massive battery of research done on addiction. Fortunately, most of the studies done on addiction find eerie applicability in religiosity as well; don't take my word for it, look into the matter yourself. There are literally thousands of credible universities, libraries and research centers that will, if you ask nicely, most likely help you find information on both.

Once they've got you, they will isolate you and condition you even further, encouraging you to essentially reject anything except what you are given by them(this is really where point 1 comes into play) and to outright deny anything that contradicts your 'new, real' truth, irrespective of any evidence or facts that may exist. They will do this by appealing to your emotions (which they've tampered with and are still tampering with, by the by), asking you to 'Pray for guidance' when faced by that which makes you doubt your new 'truth', to seek the counsel of all your new "brethren in faith" and to consider it a sin if you fail; a failing that makes you a criminal against existence itself.

This is reinforced by conditioning and outright, if sublime, coercion; all that bible study they're urging you, all that attending of church, all the encouragement to practically abandon all former aspects of your life in favor of church activities, assemblies and functions? It is a process of conditioning, and there is perhaps no greater insult to your individuality than this.

Whatever it takes to keep you 'in', the orthodoxy will do, though most of the pre-fabricated barriers are scare tactics. All of the holy texts of the worlds "Big Three" monotheisms are chock-full of stories about what happened to fictitious people that turned away; they -usually- let you fill in the blanks about what'll happen to you if you do.

This is not, however, their primary focus; scaring you into obedience used to work back in older times, but it's been too often proven that modern society is, in general, too educated, connected and aware to be frightened into obedience so overtly as once was typical.

So, anymore, rather than risk scaring you away, they've changed emphasis; endearing you to the cause, encouraging you to seek education at -Their- schools, urging you to preach to others and 'spread the word' yourself, and to see everything through the romantically rosy-hued lenses of "Everything is a miracle".

Well sure, that's a feel-good thing to say, but can we ignore the fact that "miracles" of virtually every sort that can be studied have been explained? The only vastness of quantity anyone can point at in the number of miracles that occur are of a nature that precludes themselves from any manner of empirical study, specifically those that are claimed by individuals and are entirely based on their subjective opinion. Example: "I saw an angel when I was on my death bed and it told me it wasn't my time yet! That's why I'm alive today!"

Clearly, that can't be argued with any more than if they claimed to have seen space aliens or Elvis in such a context, and that is precisely why so many stories of such 'miracles' pervade; they're the only sort of 'miracles' that can withstand inspection, notably because they cannot be inspected at all.

Convenient, isn't it? One may also find remarkable how, "in the distant past", the world was apparently full of all kinds of miracles. Just full of godly evidence, if you believe what various holy texts will claim.

Where have they gone? Most religious sorts will do anything to avoid having to say "I don't know", and will rarely consider that, perhaps, the people of ages past didn't know what was going on when they saw something and surely couldn't have mis-interpreted it. Rather, they'll wander from "God is sleeping" claims to "God is testing us" assertions.

They won't lend much thought or consideration to that the rise of man's ability to inspect and analyze has proven many things that people of ages past would've called miracles to be (sometimes rather peculiar) phenomena of weather, geology or plain ol' thermal dynamics.

Example? The tsunami that flattened a large chunk of Indian coastline would likely have been deemed a 'miracle' by people in ancient societies; people who would have had no means by which to know that an earthquake had occurred out in the ocean, or how to track that earthquake's causation to the natural grinding about of tectonic plates. They didn't even know tectonic plates existed, or that they floated around on the semi-liquid mantle beneath earth's surface. They didn't -know better-; of course they thought these things were cause by something vast, enormous and inexplicable.

Naturally, they either invented explanations (myths, anyone?) or accredited such things to whatever god-figure(s) they revered. Maybe the earth-worshipers are more correct than anyone else in the faith business, hmm? At least they're attributing things to the documented, locatable and actual source, even if their how-and-why explanations might get quite over-poetic and fact-lean.

6. Blame the Devil

If you believe what the Big Three monotheisms will tell you, it's all the devil's fault. All the evil in the world is the responsibility of the devil. Even if you ask such questions as "Didn't God create the Devil?", they will find some irrational answer by which to invalidate the point you're indicating, but more on that later.

Who's the devil, anyway? They will all, in various fashions, claim that the devil was the first being to give god the finger; if you give god the finger, you're in with the devil (Handy creation of an "If you're not with us, you're against us" context and justification no?).

The devil, as an icon, is as necessary in the functioning of these religions as their god-figure. Why? The devil is the knife they'll frighten you into obedience with, the symbol that they'll translate to you as the source of all that which they deem to be evil, but since they created the symbol, they also created the very definition of evil, which is awfully damn convenient if you ask me (Had to come from somewhere, right? Couldn't have been god's fault, right? That would mean there's evil in God...and that would destroy the entire premise of their religion via invalidation of their claims of god's omnipotence and perfect love).

Mostly, however, the devil has existed in the history of these religions as a means of destroying and discrediting the god-figures of other religions that stood in contrast. It was common practice (and remains common practice, if you care to enlighten yourself of the tactics missionaries to such places as Africa and Brazil use and practice in pandering their faith) for preachers to preach to people of other faiths, using their god(s) as the antagonists, with the preacher's god as the hero-figure.

Stories were how people kept most of their history, even with the advent of writing, in many places and for a lot of centuries, and it must be understood that, as a result, people were sometimes very GOOD story-tellers. Naturally, a lot of the stories stuck around, got retold, re-retold and eventually became some trickled-down part of the culture in which they'd been introduced (just like all such things did and still do; cultural diffusion, anyone?). In essence, monotheisms survived for two reasons attendant to this; the promotion of zealous obedience in the faithful these manner of stories encouraged and repetition of the same 'invalidate the other/validate ourselves' tales by merit of organizing them and their dispensation. They pursue aggressive advertising campaigns today, and clearly, they've always done so.

This is a strictly social phenomena that occurred for strictly normal-to-social-evolution reasons. That it is accredited by such religions to the "preservation of the church and faith by God" is just a convenient explanation that specifically does -not- reference facts as a means of making you look at it in the way they wish you to. It is also an answer that, for those who are only vaguely curious and looking for anything 'official' to fill the blanks with, might be sufficient without anyone even asking for explanation; people can be very lazy like that. Further still is that such an answer just plain sounds good. It's so full of pomp and authority, as if God himself told you this over coffee ("Oh, but god said so in the Bible!"). Isn't fantasy fun?

The idea of archetypal evil is something that monotheisms need in order to even begin making a remotely believable idea of archetypal good; that duality is necessary because it's obvious that bad things happen in the world, and they can't blame it on their God-figure, can they? Not when they've claimed their God-figure as the source of all truth, light and the only salvation for everyone, everywhere. What would such a god save you from, itself? No, of course not; every hero in a story needs a villain to save the victim from. The devil answers monotheism's every need in terms of what and who to blame badness on, and provides a handy tool for deflecting criticism, avoiding responsibility ("The devil made me do it", "The Devil sent demons to possess me- I wasn't responsible!") and not having to figure out how to explain why their God of All Goodness, All The Time has been letting people torture, kill, maim, rape and terrorize each other since the dawn of recorded history. After all, it wasn't God, right? It was the devil!

This is patently irresponsible on the parts of those who are audacious enough to claim themselves humanitarians that are out to help the world, as I'll observe all representatives of these three mega-cults are swift to claim. They're not out to help the world unless helping the world incidentally helps them propagate their own faith, way of believing, way of seeing and justification in feeling correct; the cases of individuals may and certainly will sometimes vary, but the core of the belief structures themselves do not.

As such, monotheism's strict need to identify, personify and alienate the 'icon of evil' also winds up removing the burden of self-responsibility, which they clearly want removed from the individual and juxtaposed onto the God-figure. Christian doctrine states that we are all born into sin and would be damned eternally if not for Jesus, as an example; that we are utterly incapable of being responsible for our fate is what that implies. The icon of evil helps create a context in which we are all born on one side, and only across the bridge that they conveniently provide can we get to the other; the good; side. And we can only cross that bridge if we follow their instruction, do as we're told and not ask too many questions along the way.

As an aside, you can often discern the nature and intent of a thing by looking at the effects of it's actions, as well as the methods employed in arriving at those effects. To wit, it is just as good to say that you can tell a lot about a man by how he treats his dog, his wife, his kids, etcetera.

Monotheistic orthodoxy treats it's dogs as stupid, insufficient fools who exist only as a resource to support church authority and to do as the religious leaders tell them. Yes, it will do whatever is required to keep up appearances of beneficence and good-will-for-all (how else could they keep the converts and cash rolling in?), but it's really no different than a pleasant-seeming man who treats his neighbors well, but in the privacy of his home engages himself in beating his wife, neglecting his dog and exploiting his children as a source of free labor.

Ironically, that very sort of man is perhaps the most common sort of man to have been found in monotheistic service throughout the majority of history, but please, don't take my word for it; seek to educate yourselves on the subjects of the treatment of women in monotheistic cultures, the relationships between fathers and children throughout history in cultures underwritten by monotheism and the societal states of all such cultures themselves.

This is what I observe the effects and methods of monotheistic religions to be and define them as; typified by the man illustrated in the above example. I disregard that which representatives of these religions say in answer as I would the excuses of the man out of the above example; they, as with such a man, will say anything that is convenient to excuse their behavior. There is no excuse, however, for such behavior; the only correct answer this correction of the behavior itself. Words are insufficient.

That, they will not do, as they're too afraid that they'll wind up in a hilariously contrived lake of fire forever and ever if they were to admit such intrinsic failures of their belief system and act towards correcting them.

Silly, but more-so than silly, it is sad.

7. Exclusivity and Irrationality

Monotheistic orthodoxy, contrived as it is and refined as it's been to function as a system of social order, cultural mitigation and population control, must allow for as little dissent against it's authority as it can get away with. As with the loyalists of any totalitarian government, monotheistic faithful have proven (and are still proving to this very day) the lengths and extents they will go to in order to preserve their faith's exclusive claim to truth, correctness and validity. This is an all-important means of survival in such aggressively predatory faiths; to have so strongly established and embraced the "If you're not with us, you're against us" philosophy while failing thereafter to continue acting in this "God-demanded manner", they would swiftly disinherit themselves from their own histories and all claims of their own validity would swiftly erode.

In a nutshell, what that means is that they long ago set themselves rolling down a hill, and if they stopped now, they'd be essentially admitting that they've been wrong the whole time; not something they're ever going to do. Because of this, we have Christian radicals that are willing to tie homosexuals to the backs of trucks and drag them down dirt roads (This is loving your neighbor?), entire militant sects of Islamic jihadists that will strap bombs to themselves and take a flying leap into everything from schools (This is practicing love and peace through wisdom and honor?) to temples and Judaic extremists who do...exactly the same sorts of absolutely irrational rubbish for reasons that've become increasingly ridiculous in, predictably, the same manners and fashions. Could this possibly be a failing of -all- monotheisms of their shared natures? They don't seem to think so, but then, they also think there's a man who lives in the sky that hates us if we eat meat on the wrong days of the week.

They have, by this, forced themselves into becoming the most irrational, verifiably insane people on the face of the planet, and the truly sad part is that they cannot even allow themselves to see it for what it is, lest they admit that it's all been wrong, right from the start, to have culminated in this. Because they have so convinced themselves that God is infallible, that they are infallible in God's work and that their interpretation (however they feel about it, essentially) is as God feels about it, they are not merely irrational anymore, but insane.

Documentably, certifiably insane.

Instead, they will go to any lengths, spinning even more out of control and sanity to explain how websites such as "God Hates Fags" are testaments of God's love, how sending children strapped with bombs into schools are justified by God's divine will and how pursuing ever-increasingly radical restrictions of social freedoms in every government they can address are not merely good ideas, but demanded by their God Almighty.

If you take methamphetamines, you will experience a high unlike anything you'll probably experience without them. People take them because they like that idea initially, and because they don't know how to stop thereafter, as it's terribly addictive. Ever seen a meth addict in the acute stages? Look up pictures.

If you take LSD, you will hallucinate, most likely quite powerfully. People take LSD because they like the idea initially, and typically continue to like the idea long, long after they've wound up talking to fenceposts and becoming so psychologically damaged that they must be classified as Invalid, institutionalized and kept away from sharp objects, stairs or things that're moving too fast in their field of vision for the rest of their lives.

If you take monotheistic religion, you will...?

Think about it. But don't take my word for it. Research. Question. Dig.

And THEN think about it again.
