in the finale of at least one of his 'man without a name' westerns, they played classical spanish bullfight instrumental music as a prelude to the 'cultural adjustment' that Clint Eastwood would inflict on the evildoers.

I found a void, yes. It's at declination '79 about 150-250ish light years out. It's a neutron star and i think it causes intergenerational genetic degradation due to x-rays, and that men are particularly vulnerable. That's my thesis. Zero can be more simply understood as a circle. From a relogious point of view, a prayer circle is a strong representation. It is also the omega (of the heirarchy).

Christianity maintains that Jesus is the alpha and the omega, and at the very least, this is true from an archetypal perspective, but i think there's an assumption that it is about the omega becoming the alpha, and i disagree. I think it's a duality of omega and alpha. Essentially, Jesus= alpha of surrender (since the omega, from an animalistic point of view is the one in the pack that mediates disputes, for if the pack dissolved, the omega would likely be first to perish in the choas).

The circle is also any group that is closed off with it's belief system. My divisional solution is 11. *-****-*-*****- looped. The new testament begins with a thrice repeated 14 generations reference. I have my suspicions that it represents magnetic power generation, and i have further suspicions that the egyptian pharoahs, at the very least tapped into thunderbolts, considering that they had huge ammounts of gold, the chemical properties of which are superior to copper off which our modern grid operates.

Back to useful reality: It is an unfortunate truth that a society must go through cycles of suffering and rebirth... At least a Christian one does. What this means is that the west needs to, at the very least, go through a simulated war, preferably of ideas. It's happening, now, i think.

I would contrast this with other belief systems, such as the chinese one, which is more about a continual internal cycle.

The west seems far more dramatic. I think the compatibility of the abrahamic faiths has been discounted and rejected, and that this rejection is the primary source of the west's instability. What i mean to say, is that i think most Muslims view everything as a precursor to their own faith system, so theyre perfectly fine with utilizing or even embracing components of 'ours'.

My former church tried their hand at embracing a... highly flamboyant (lol) young minister from Baghdad.

He immediately tried pandering to the upperclass, at which point i realized the whole thing was a joke.
Christianity was never intended to be the religion of the ruling class. :/

i've never had a need for religion (purely belief-based philosophy) of any kind. at least so i would say. 'God' has been reliably quiet to me my whole life, except in what he/she shows me in the glorious detail of observable physical phenomena. that detail has been enough of a comfort to get me thru emotionally challenging times. not great as a people person until recently, i've accepted without complaint or compliment that each has their own when it comes to religion.

i like your theory about the neutron star, but i'd like to see the data supporting selective male-susceptibility. ( :

i see evildoers as anyone killing or taking advantage of innocent or defenseless people. in politically or religiously motivated or assisted wars or conflicts, it's usually two or more 'sides' that let it happen. so sad when it can be avoided thru rational discussion and compromise. regardless of who started it or whether one or more groups were 'first' of 'more' to blame. i don't make conclusions from a religious point of view (i'm an agnostic if i'm anything). i trust your opinion as worthy because you're smart and creative. those are the people who tend to resolve conflicts peacefully.

The data in terms of male susceptibility is probably non-existant, i'm just pointing out that the male Y chromosome contains more errors and deletions and repetitions, therefore any furthur damage to it would be problematic... Which is to say that men experience mental disability to a greater degree... So its not so much they recieve more damage.

The god theory is one i find tiring, besides which, god doesnt seem like an appealing fellow, although i could understand the appeal if one is order obsessed instead of choas obsessed. In terms of a suggested belief system... I would say that i encouraged a staged perspective. From an origin perspective, we're most likely descended from a a swirling oceanic mass of iron and other elements around an underwater heat vent. It would be pseudo-organic. I suspect the first true cell isnt anything more than a puddle with a lipid (fat) membrane that floated to the top. I found the conflict between upper and lower Egypt to be useful for both it's analogy to America's south vs north dynamic, and also from a perspective of the origin of our civilization. The english language is constructed some time during the dark ages, primarily by monks, so it's ineacapably religious.

I have a metaphor i've been usong to describe my thoughts:

If a man spends 30 years in the church... Lets say... Literally physically within the church... Then leaves for the usual reason: (the church is full of crap)... Then when he goes out into the world... All he's going to do is church stuff, lmao. Sure, he might reject certain tenants as archaic, or form new tenants from two old ones, but it'll still be hilariously derivative. In this sense, the premise goes that most (probably all) societies are entirely pathological in that sense.

I would say that athiesm is generally just naturalism, so adopt a spirit animal or something, and mimic it. The point would be that as far as i can tell, thats the operational reality we live under. As for god, google's already at 95%. I think of the original conceptualization of god as being similar to the lion king. "Everything the light touches." Moses, for example, would have been able to stand on hill and see "everyone" (all 'his' people). Considering the deeply collectivist and insular nature of Judiasm stemming from it's badarse desert origins, the alpha of the group would be nearly indistuishable from a god-like entity.

The 'trick' i would say is to join the emotional flow of 'the collective'.

Answer to below: I'm losing interest in conflict resolution. I made a possibly unwise attempt at broad religious inclusion.

You're obviously right, though.

I find my own religiousy opinions to be scattered at best, but now that i've gone so far off the beaten path i get the strong and unavoidable sense that i'm surrounded by sheep who use belief as an ideological shield.

I almost managed to reject that very depressing theory... When i spoke to some people, casually on such subjects, but then i realized that it was because they were shielding the religion instead of themselves... Which sounds perfectly fine, but is basically just white knighting.

Essentially, i suspect that i'm better deconstuction than most, which is probably because most people dont bother with it (and they shouldn't).

It's to the point where Christians self implode within a minute of talking to me.

Some guy pulled the "Have you heard about Jesus Christ?" on me.

I was stunned, because obviously yes, considering where i live, so i was literally at a loss for words.

So i asked: "Have you heard of Horus?"

Dude immediately calls him Satan. I had to prevent myself from beating him, not because i'm defending anything, but because that's a clearly toxic reaction.

Imagine if i had of said "have you heard of Mohammed?"

I have a sense of what a religious framework is since i built a shoddy, unique one.

At this point i find myself asking the question: Has most inter-religious conversation up until now been nothing but people tossing their religion's ancient parables and catch phrases at each other?

I think Christianity is allergic to independant thought. With all of islam's divisions, im not sensing the same issue there, because, bluntly, most muslims are probably hyper-aware of the possibly of their beliefa becoming ISIS-radicalized, so they discriminate the scripture, now, when they didnt, previously.

Christianity, meanwhile, assumes they dont have anything to do with the west's war apparatus, and they think a few dirt poor illiterate angsty war torn young men going on rampages somehow validates Christianity as the correct religion.

Frig, i probably sound like antifa. Ugh. An agnostic point of view is probably best.

I could rant like this for an hour. I'm getting the very strong impression that most people who are like me simply abandoned the discussion, and say stuff like "Oh, im on the fence." etc
It leaves what i sense to be a void in belief based matters.

well if you are building your own unique religious framework, it's hard to see it as shoddy. do you think more, and more deeply, than most Canadians and Americans about religion and its relationship to non-religious questions? that is excellent. be patient with yourself and the development of your ideas and conclusions, and with other people of all stripes who are trying to go thru a similar metamorphosis to the best of their abilities. you may find a void ultimately, but if you do, it may be because that void is natural. it doesn't have to be troubling. i ramble, i know.
