Re: Do Republicans and pedophile priests share the same vile sexual morality.

Can’t watch the video right now but I think there’s research that shows that the main difference between (very) conservative and (very) progressive people is in how they feel about what’s unfamiliar. It seems to scare conservative people more easily while progressive folk tend to be just interested...

Re: If you think an ideology or religion is immoral and evil, should you actively oppose it?

I do not get that you actively engage theists much. A shame that. A shame? In the sense that I should be ashamed, you mean? I don’t recall stating that I actively engage anyone for that matter. Actually. It’s rather pointless, because people don’t change their beliefs if you tell them to. And right...

Re: Do Republicans and pedophile priests share the same vile sexual morality.

Lúthien I hear you and agree to an extent but if this link is true, then the more right one is in his thinking, brain dead thinking to me, then the propensity for the right wingers to lie about their true nature is quite strong as compared to the left. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLulcfyqrc0 Reg...

Re: If you think an ideology or religion is immoral and evil, should you actively oppose it?

Lúthien Seems we both have a hand problem. I just had a treatment to remove a growth in my hand that supposedly only Vikings get. I was surprised to know I had Viking blood. Nice that you think you should fight evil. The tool I use is arguments just as Gnostic Christians of the past used. The proble...

Do Republicans and pedophile priests share the same vile sexual morality.

Do Republicans and pedophile priests share the same vile sexual morality. I wrote this for the religious forum but it seems to be a question that I should have put to Republicans as they are exhibiting the same vile morality as pedophile priests and the religious who ignore morality to feed their tr...

Re: How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways?

I shall draft an answer for you a bit later, although I'm afraid I can't address the question you seem most interested in, as I am not oriented that way: as a shaman, I have never met God (or Satan), but I have met great angels. Also, as someone who largely stands outside the ordinary human experie...

How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways?

How and why can people ignore their God’s immoral ways? I find it quite strange that Christian, Muslims and Jews can ignore the immoral ways that their God is shown to have in the Bible, Qur’an and Talmud. If you have read any of the critical books on God, you will have seen God described with some ...

Re: If you think an ideology or religion is immoral and evil, should you actively oppose it?

[...]does your ideology require you to fight other ideologies? I'm an Anarchist, and most other Anarchists would probably say no, but for me the answer is yes. Especially when confronted with an abomination like Donald Trump, who is pretty much the existential opposite of everything a black-block A...

If you think an ideology or religion is immoral and evil, should you actively oppose it?

If you think an ideology or religion is immoral and evil, should you actively oppose it? Christians and Muslims seem to think so as evidenced by Inquisitions and Jihads. I am a Gnostic Christian and we have always seen it as part of our belief system to oppose immoral and evil belief systems. We are...

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

Hi Gnosic Bishop, Apotheosis is a term given to those who experience enlightenment of true Gnosis. Some call it oneness or reaching that point of no thought. I found the oneness/universal consciousness but it was not a place of no thought. Ah thank you. Well, I certainly experienced something - or,...

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

I define ego as my consciousness. I carried it, so to speak, with me during my apotheosis so I do not think our egos can die or ever actually leave us. We might loose it under drugs but not really as we have it when coming out of drug intoxication. If they are the storage house of our perceptions, ...

Re: Why 'The Central Myths'?

Some medicine men and sages say that their DNA speaks to them but that is not really saying they experience the subatomic particles that they are made of. To be honest, I find neither the notion of being addressed by one's DNA, nor "experiencing their subatomic particles" particularly interesting o...

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

Neither do I. Then again, if you have yet to have had an apotheosis you are way above the rank and file. I don't understand that expression, I'm sorry :huh: (I'm not a native speaker, you see) - can you explain please? Apotheosis is a term given to those who experience enlightenment of true Gnosis....

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

In my case, I'm not as powerful as the Legendary shamans of Amazonia, who were reported to perform some of the things that Jesus also did, but, OTOH, I could probably kick any garden variety neo-Pagan "mage's" ass. Powerful in what way? Are you talking mental or physical in a body healing way. Rega...
