TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

Christian vs Pauline


According to Lawrence Gardner's Bloodline of the Holy Grail and Henry Lincoln's Holy Grail Holy Blood, there are endless sources to be found throughout old literary accounts about the truth behind the characters found in the Bible. These historical FACTS commonly do not agree with the PROPAGANDA presented through the ages ("propaganda" being a word actually invented by the Roman Church!)

In Gardner's The Magdalene Legacy he relates of an invitation by representatives of the Roman Church who wished a televised discussion on his book [i.e. Bloodline... ], which discussion was headed off with the following statement:
"Mr. Gardner will be presenting facts and ours is the argument of faith."
Basically, the attitude of the Church (in relation to Garder's and other such research) has been that you have to believe in SOMETHING and what the Roman Church offers people to believe in is preferable than the truth. That argument basically boils down to saying: "You might as well believe in the Easter Bunny, that's better than clouding your mind with facts".

So-called christian churches don't even bother to deny the research such books put forward, which would of course be futile anyway since they don't put forward conspiracy theories but rather facts that are substantiated by historical documents all over the Old World (that corroborate each other, as well). Their only recourse is to avoid the debate altogether and speak about faith.

Ironically, that brings the entire issue immediately down to it's roots; authoritarianism is always about faith in some supposed authority, above faith in one's own knowledge, logic, and common sense.
The matter is indeed always about faith, just not as people commonly imagine it.

Lawrence Gardner and Henry Lincoln have presented research, logic, and common sense that support faith in TRUTH or REALITY. The so-called holy Roman Church present their own version of reality that supports faith in THEMSELVES. There's a saying that's about this:
"There's one born every minute"...
Jesus supposedly also had something to say on the matter:
"The TRUTH will set you free" [i.e. he didn't say FAITH will set you free...]


Following the actual historical facts presented by books like those mentioned above [another good one is Pirates & The Lost Templar Fleet - The Secret Naval War Between the Templars & the Vatican], it turns out that what the Roman Church presents should not even be called CHRISTianity since Paul and the 'Paulites' actually literally have stated that Jesus Christ himself got the message wrong on certain points, making Paul the ultimate authority according to them.
The Roman Church, therefore, is essentially not CHRISTian but PAULine. This is a more fundamental aspect of these books than what they ALSO demonstrate about Christ, that He was not killed on the cross but that he was saved by the machinations of Simon the Zealot and others. Just about every myth of mainstream 'christianity' is smashed to bits in these books, from virgin births to divine impregnation to Lazarus being raised from the dead. The Bible code is also explained, one good example being that "Those with eyes to see and ears to hear" understood that whenever scripture states "the word of God" one should read "Jesus". It throws everything in a new perspective that finally DOES make sense!

A book that offers similar proof. This is a book from the 70's. The TRUTH has been out there for a long time already.

basic concepts and principles of Christianity


Just as the 'Holy Roman Church' [i.e. NOT "the holy christian church" or something] talks about faith all the time even though Christ talked about truth, there are a lot of fundamental concepts, ideas, and principles that Jesus taught, mentioned, or implied that are generally ignored by so-called christian churches.
The churces are knock-offs, really; it's like how the police talk about "To protect and to serve" when in reality it's protecting and serving authoritarianism, i.e. THEMSELVES. In the end they stand for the exact opposite of what they plagerize, as the following will help to illustrate.

Christ talked about the following:
- do unto others as you would have them do unto you
- peaceful resistance (undermining authority)
- the importance of children
- truth will set you free
- we're all equal under 'god', including Jesus
- I am the son of MAN
- do not resist evil

But Paul made Jesus out to be the SON OF GOD. Instead of confronting ALL authority like Jesus did [be it tradition, spiritual, personal, or political], the authority of the Holy Roman Church became a prime doctrine. Instead of stressing the importance of truth, faith is a prime doctrine.

The authoritarian Roman Church of course never speaks of what undermines authority. Faith is the course they set out, faith IN THEM.
"Do not resist evil" is the most powerful tool people have to undermine authority. It is therefore never mentioned. It's not even understood by authorities.
Peaceful resistance is what allowed Gandhi to kick the great British global empire out of their country AND STAY OUT. It is one of the greatest political successes of all time.

Walter Wink taught me some very important things about what was really going down in Jesus' time.
What was meant by "Turn the other cheek" had to do with disobedience: a slave had rights and couldn't just be manhandled and beaten without cause or just by anyone; someone might slap a slave but FIST FIGHTING was done Jew to Jew, i.e. free man with free man. Therefore, one couldn't just hit a slave with your fist, you could only slap him. But what if he turns his cheek?
You are outmanoeuvered. The Jew is then forced by the slave to either hit him like he might a free man or not strike him at all. The admonition "Turn the other cheek" had to do with a peaceful resistance tactic like the kind Gandhi applied. There was another one:
"Walk another mile"; by law, a soldier might demand of any Jew to walk his stuff ONE MILE. Jew citizens also had rights. By walking TWO MILES, you were potentially getting whoever demanded one mile of you in trouble. It's not like it looked good (and to authoritarians, looks are everything [since people who are bereft of content by default depend on cosmetics]), and who would believe that the Jew voluntarily walked an extra mile when it's much more likely that the Roman soldier overstepped his bounds?

The basic principle of authoritarianism is taking advantage of others and using their outrage against them. Governments abuse their people and the people become violent and then that violence is used as an excuse for the government to be MORE violent. It's a cycle of violence that leaves the elite untouched, ever increasing their power and revenues as taxes are increased time after time to deal with the rabble.
Gandhi and Jesus, however, understood that one undermines this principle at a fundamental level by not reacting in kind. Violence only begets more violence. It's not about being a pussy, it's about understanding your enemy and his tactics.

Indeed, this is what the above mentioned books suggest that the historical facts point to: Jesus was very similar to Gandhi. He was made into some kind of mystical figure by the Holy Roman Church because that suited the church. Mystery and authority go hand-in-hand, as i've gone into at length in other posts/articles.

If you're interested in Jesus, you're going to have to look into other sources than just the ones who are basically his enemies, the ones that stand for everything Jesus stood against: the christians...

"Do not resist evil"


The TRUE Christian [capital C] follows his Guru's lead and actually consistently applies what Jesus taught. Most important is perhaps the admonition not to resist evil.

When you DON'T resist evil, when you do so consistently, your attacker's nature becomes evident. If you find excuses [the poor-me paradigm] to defend yourself [because life's too hard to stick to Christian principles], you'll be living a life that is a compromise between that which is inhuman and that which is (potentially) human.
When you are in between, you never find out what truly human entails, nor do you find out what the nature of inhuman truly entails. Jesus also admonished: "Be hot or be cold". What's worse than evil? Being a mindless drone. At least if you (temporarily) choose evil, the nature of your choice becomes clear to you and you can then (and only then) be clear that another choice is desirable.

When you DON'T remain consistent in allowing evil to do to you what it would, you remain unclear on how much of what occurred lies with you and how much lies with your enemy.
Also, if you don't consistently allow evil to do what it would, you never experience the butt end of it like you otherwise would. This neither gives the insight into that which is inhuman that you'd otherwise get, nor are you sufficiently motivated to be consistent about that which is human.

"Be hot or be cold", "You're with me or you're against me", these are the 'radical' and extreme teachings of Jesus. He also said "I come bearing a sword". His teachings promised humanity an understanding about both humanity and inhumanity to the few who were true to them. When you water-down a teaching that clearly states that watering-down is evil, you are not a follower of said teaching. You can't even be called a fan. You certainly shouldn't be calling yourself a "christian", though those who side with evil obviously WILL be deceitful, especially to themselves.

Amazigh & Christianity


Donatists are historically North African Christians who felt that those who had capitulated to Roman authority were unworthy to hold religious office. Under Roman religious persecutions, many North African christians had given up their Bibles because it excused them from persecution, even though they [supposedly, according to the Donatists] retained their religion. Other traditores [or traitors in the Donatists' eyes] gave up fellow Christians to save their own skin.
This Donatist movement remained important in the Roman African provinces of Algeria and Tunis until the Arab conquests.

The Donatist movement suggests that the capitulation of Christianity to the Roman emperor Constantine makes of Paul a traditor/traitor.

the Bible


George Gordon made an interesting point in a OneRadioNetwork podcast: the Bible's a book of history, law, and prophecy.
In other words, one might say it's about past, present, and future.
As George Gordon himself also points out in the podcasts with Patrick Timpone, the Bible's also about health. I was thinking about it and came to the conclusion that the Bible is about all important aspects of life:
- Humanity
- Health
- Spirituality
- Economics
- Science
- History
- Politics
What the hell are priests doing in charge of it then...?
As Mr. Gordon points out so eloquently, many things that are commonly assumed to be 'religious' are nothing of the sort. Admonitions against eating pork, for instance, are simply health warnings. The thing with the Bible is that everyone can see it's already a very big book; imagine if they'd explain where every rule came from, as well as putting it down; then it'd be at least 10 times as many pages. However, because things don't get explained, you have to take on faith that they make sense.
The big question that arrises when you have to take something on faith is: is the authority you recognize, one of power or competence?
The the-Bible-is-a-spiritual-book argument assumes it's a matter of a power-based authority. People like George Gordon, however, suggest that there's quite clearly a lot of actual knowledge and understanding underlying what's presented in the Bible. Knowledge and understanding in turn are what it takes to appreciate what it has to offer, not blind faith in some faceless all-powerful authority.

Ideally, the following specialists would be concerned with it's contents:
- Health: doctors and dieticians
- Humanity: philosophers, psychologists, and scholars
- History: historians and scholars
- Science: scientists and researchers
- Economics: idem
- Politics: philosophers, lawyers, and politicians
- Spirituality: gurus and psychics
Ironically, the supposedly 'spiritually inspired' Bible ends up being ruled over by priests, which are associated with religion. Spirituality and religion, however, are essentially opposites. Religion implies an all-powerful authority whereas spirituality implies oneness, i.e. no authority (no external or conflicting power).
In essence, people who love religion hate spirituality. I'd go so far as to say that all religionists hate 'God'.

So the one thing in the Bible you could actually leave to someone who isn't secularly/scientifically invested in things, i.e. Spirituality, is exactly the last thing you should ever entrust to priests!

circumcision


Circumcision started in America during the masturbation hysteria of the Victorian Era, when a few American doctors circumcised boys to punish them for masturbating. Victorian doctors knew very well that circumcision denudes, desensitizes, and disables the penis. Nevertheless, they were soon claiming that circumcision cured epilepsy, convulsions, paralysis, elephantiasis, tuberculosis, eczema, bed-wetting, hip-joint disease, fecal incontinence, rectal prolapse, wet dreams, hernia, headaches, nervousness, hysteria, poor eyesight, idiocy, mental retardation, and insanity. In fact, no procedure in the history of medicine has been claimed to cure and prevent more diseases than circumcision....[1997] The Case Against Circumcision by Paul M. Fleiss, MD

Jesus, King of Edessa
Ralph Ellis explains in this OneRadioNetwork podcast about his book concerning the documented history of Jesus Christ who as:
- grandson of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra
- son of the exiled queen of Persia
had a legitimate claim to just about the entire 'civilized' (western) world at the time. King Jesus [the name of a previous book by the author] aspired to become emperor of Rome.
He says this should be understood to have occurred around 70 A.D.
Very interesting and impressive information.

The Gospel of Barnabas
Much to the dismay of the Vatican, an approx. 1500-2000 year old bible was found in Turkey, in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara. Discovered and kept secret in the year 2000, the book contains the Gospel of Barnabas – a disciple of Christ – which shows that Jesus was not crucified, nor was he the son of God, but a Prophet. The book also calls Apostle Paul “The Impostor”. The book also claims that Jesus ascended to heaven alive, and that Judas Iscariot was crucified in his place.
A report by The National Turk says that the Bible was seized from a gang of smugglers in a Mediterranean-area operation. The report states the gang was charged with smuggling antiquities, illegal excavations, and the possession of explosives. The books itself is valued as high as 40 Million Turkish Liras (approx. 28 mil. Dollars). Man, where is the Thieves Guild, when you need them?
According to reports, experts and religious authorities in Tehram insist that the book is original. The book itself is written with gold lettering, onto loosely-tied leather in Aramaic, the language of Jesus Christ. The text maintains a vision similar to Islam, contradicting the New Testament’s teachings of Christianity. Jesus also foresees the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, who would found Islam 700 years later.
It is believed that, during the Council of Nicea, the Catholic Church hand-picked the gospels that form the Bible as we know it today; omitting the Gospel of Barnabas (among many others) in favor of the four canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Many biblical texts have begun to surface over time, including those of the Dead Sea and Gnostic Gospels; but this book especially, seems to worry the Vatican.
What does this mean to Christian-derived religions and their followers? Quite a tight spot. The Vatican has asked Turkish authorities to let them examine the contents of the book within the Church. Now that the book has been found, will they come to accept the it and its evidence? Will they deny it altogether? Call it a “Muslim lie”, as did the “Truth” Magazine, in 2000? To many, this book is a beacon of hope, that believers soon realize that the object of their adoration is arbitrary; and that all text, especially religious text, is subject to interpretation.

Islam and christianity


5 Types of People in Islam
- Muslim
- Kafir
- Mushrik
- Mumin
- Munafiq

I studied Islam a bit and it doesn't take much reading to understand that the billion-plus people CALLING themselves "Muslim" are actually Mushrik, not Muslim.
Mushrik are people who say they believe in the prophet Mohamed, the Quran and Allah but they add !@#$ to it. Particularly, Sunni and Shia add Hadith.
For those who know the Bible that's like Jesus saying one thing and then Paul coming along and saying something opposite of Jesus' teachings. Just going by the biblical saying "You can't serve both Mammon and God", this is untenable. One must choose. One cannot adhere to Mohamed, Quran and "Allah's word" and Hadith both, for the previous clearly speak out against the latter.
So Mushrik ADD Hadith to Quran, making them not Muslim at all.

Worse than Mushrik are Munafiq. Actually, they're worst of all. Mainly this word is simply translated with "hypocrite"; specifically it's about all those people calling themselves "Muslim" but just using religion and their hollow claims as a kind of cultural shield. They don't outright deny Islam / Mohamed / Allah / Quran like Kafirs; they claim Islam [etc.] but their life is against what Islam [etc.] demands.

So-called Quranists adhere only to the Quran and ignore Hadith or any other additions to Quran. If they are 'god-fearing', they may be referred to as Mumin, i.e. that's about 'Islamic' values being an integral part of one's life.


According to most Mushrik, Christians are kafir. As well, they believe it is advisable to cheat Christians and basically treat them like !@#$.
In the Quran Christians and Jews are clearly seen as Kitabi, 'people of the Book', i.e. as equals (as long as they're no hypocrites, like most people are according to the Quran).

Most 'Arabic' or 'muslim' cultures are in fact Mushrik cultures, if not Munafiq cultures. They defy the content of the Quran just like most so-called christians defy the words of Christ. And just like there are over a billion 'christians' [lower case C], there are over a billion pseudo-muslims and these people believe their numbers somehow offer them safety or credit.

According to the actual words in the Quran, actual Christians and Jews ARE also Muslim. In other words, any Christian and Jew can approach any person or entity and truthfully claim to be Muslim. If challenged, in 99.99% of the cases the challenger can be addressed as Mushrik (or Munafiq if a bad person) and the burden of proof can simply be shifted.

In Munafiq and Mushrik culture religion and mores are about power-based authority, i.e. people base their morality, ideas and arguments on the power they wield as member of a large group. Neither logic, instinct nor written rules guide them, rather whatever their peers accept sets the bar. Though this is immoral and barbaric, such justifies the acts, words, thoughts and intentions of Mushrik and Munafiq.

Though i have not carefully considered or studied the matter, it probably works out that the 25% [of the Milgram Experiment] are Mushrik and the 75% Munafiq. Actual Muslims, like Christians, are few and far between, despite many people's protestations that they are driven by 'good intentions' and that this not only makes a difference but is all that matters (before 'God' or otherwise). But if you deny God/Allah or Bible/Quran yet are a good person, you are already saved according to these scripts. On the other hand, if you are led to choices that bring about evil,, through good intentions, apathy or whatever,, you have no right to call yourself either Christian or Muslim. But by referring to such titles and literature you label yourself Mushrik or Munafiq (whereas people making no such claims are all Kafir/pagan, be they good or bad).
