God and nothingness / Is Christianity OK?

08 10 11 - 12:59

From the blaze of confusion:


For the purposes of this discussion, and in agreement with almost all religions, God is a being not restricted by the laws that govern matter and energy in the physical universe. In other words, God exists outside matter and energy. In most religions, this Being acts with purpose and will, sometimes violating existing physical laws (i.e., performing miracles), and has additional qualities such as intelligence, compassion and omniscience.

Tucking these axioms under our belt, we can say that science and God are compatible as long as the latter is content to stand on the sidelines once the universe has begun. A God that intervenes after the cosmic pendulum has been set into motion, violating the physical laws, would clearly upend the Central Doctrine of science. - Salon


It took him one paragraph to confuse himself.

If God is an order outside space/time/matter, his intervention would never be known -- it would seem logical, but instead, you would be seeing the end result of a logical that pre-existed the material forms of interaction. For this reason, the above proof is at best dodgy.

What do we think about God around here? Dunno. Seems weird to make it a human persona, or a dualistic notion. I can only handle aduality.

And Christianity? It's unfortunate that Christianity has historically empowered so many liberal events. However, there's a precursor to liberalism, and it arises independently from Christianity. For this reason, I recommend taking Christianity back to its pagan/animist roots to discover its true meaning. Avoid the mainstreamed version of Christianity -- they McDonaldsized it a thousand years ago to make the proles support it.

The fact is that Crowdism can infest any doctrine, so you cannot beat it with doctrine. You can only beat it by recognizing its mentality and designing a culture that avoids it.

It also helps to periodically line up all your proles and send them off on a truly hopeless military task. They breed much faster than the smarter humans, so kill 'em off. That's not very humanist; unfortunately, it's also good practical advice.

What would Jesus think of all of this? I don't know. I'm not sure Jesus is the part of Christianity I can relate to. What I can relate to is the reverence and belief in an order beyond the visible, and this is shared among all religions. Since Christianity brings joy to many, I see it as a foregone conclusion -- like all other ideas, it should be adopted, nurtured, and slowly modified to be a better version of what it always could have been.

So, what you could relate to is Judaism. I don't know if you've checked lately, but by definition, Jesus is part of any time of Christianity.

He is occasionally slightly deemphasized, as in Mormonism, but there's no type of Christianity, actual or hypothetical, which doesn't have Jesus as an important part. Still an atheist - 08-10-’11 16:05

One of the first things I noticed about Prozak's writing style is he takes ideas out of their original context to attempt to analyze them with his own insight into the perceived psychology of the original content. Just keep that in mind. anus.com - 08-10-’11 18:01
Great example.
Put the number 9 in any context you like, it will never be divisible by 2. Great example. - 08-10-’11 21:57

Really?
Right. "Technically", Christianity has something to do with Christ, but really... Really? - 09-10-’11 00:58

"like all other ideas, it should be adopted, nurtured, and slowly modified to be a better version of what it always could have been."

Thats what happened in the middle ages. Original Christianity (the 200 years folowing the death of Jesus) and modern non-demonatinal protestantism have way more in common than the high catholicism of St. Thomas Aquinas. Modern and traditional christianity have their roots in liberalism and sympathy for the weak. Much like today, in Rome Christianity spread among the down-and-out and the unintelligent. In the middle ages, on the other hand, all of the best minds interpreted and molded Christianity into a genuine tradition, in the strongest sense of that word. The reformtion killed that, and protestantism is only growing.

The chance of bringing back scholastic Christianity or turning modern Christiantiy into a stabilizing social force seems impossible.

Another good Nietzsche quote: "The good men in all ages are those who dig old thoughts, digging deep and getting them to bear fruit - the farmers of the spirit. But eventually all land is exploited, and the ploughshare of evil must come again and again." Christianity had its day of good men. It was the middle ages that modern men look back on and call the "dark ages," becasue thay are incapable of seeing how pathetic modernity really is. Tht type of Christianity is not coming back.

"Avoid the mainstreamed version of Christianity -- they McDonaldsized it a thousand years ago to make the proles support it."
Something to back this claim, please? As far as I remember, Christianity a thousand years ago (e.g. Medieval Christianity) was (and would be until the Reformation in the 16th century) a thriving religion as explained by the above poster. medievalchristendom - 10-10-’11 15:24

There are positive advantages to Christianity as it is a European tradition - even if it did not originate in Europe. The paganism of Rome had become materialistic and the people started to degenerate - similar to modern western nations. Perhaps a type of traditional, minimalistic Christianity with Machiavellian leadership? orcnomad - 10-10-’11 18:51
hipster, hessian morbidity
Prozak/Brett Stevens was always a christian and he's had you fuckheads following his lead all the time. White nationalism and christianity go hand-in-hand anyway. Most modern white nationalist are very much christian and for that, they're retarded and not deserving of my time.

Thank you and have a good night. hipster, hessian morbidity - 11-10-’11 06:26
okay
I don't see the point of this besides "oh look i can be open minded too, my nihilism is compatible with everything!"

pandering? okay - 11-10-’11 07:30

ANUS, though it has unfortunately devolved into reactionary conservatism as of late, is generally influenced by the perennial wisdom tradition, some of its many members being Gautama, Heraclitus, Socrates, Plato, Jesus, Plotinus, Rumi, Meister Eckhart, and William Blake. time curator (Email ) - 12-10-’11 04:17
Alpha and Omega
So many people misunderstand Jesus, just like so many people misunderstand Nietzsche. Nietzsche said there was only one true Christian and he died on the cross. By the same token, I say that there was only one true Nihilist - Nietzsche! Proclaiming the death of God was reserved for Nietzsche alone, not every half-ass "nihilist" perusing the intranet. Go back and read your books again. Jesus intended to separate the righteous from the deviant.

I do not bring peace but a sword!
I have come to set fire to the earth (oh how I wish it were already kindled!)

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a baptism to attend! Alpha and Omega - 12-10-’11 11:18
