Allegories Gone Wild - We're All Satan's Hand Puppets, Dontcha Know? (Another Non-Book Review)

Cross posted at God is for Suckers!church_lady

One of the more..irksome habits of debating the religious online, one that drives me to the edge of bug-fuckery (luckily, not beyond!), is this insane need to see invisible hands behind everything. It's usually this 'theory' (I'm using definition number six here - 'a wild conjecture') that makes me abandon Formosa's law altogether.

The idea of old Scratch hisself having his hand up my ass is, well, fairly laughable but somewhat insulting as well (hey, Lucifer! Can ya check fer polyps, and nip a few while you're at it?).

So one day at work, I did a bit of searching on 'satan's hand puppets, atheism' (hey! I remembered how I got to this one! Aintcha all proud o' me?), and, sure enough, found another blazing crazy to taunt at and amuse you all.

This website is entitled 'Satan's Government', and yes, the Internet has provided outlets for all the looneys who scribbled their little lunacies in their precious journals - one can only hope that ridicule might fire the proper synapses.

A pipe dream, I know. But one can dream, no?

I will only target the intro, because there's a limit to my lunatic libations.

This book is written from a religious viewpoint. The basic assumption on which the book is based is that the bible is the Word of God and that the bible applies to our modern day and age.

There we go - honest presuppositionalism.

There are no human solutions presented in this book. The reader should know that the only solution the author will present is the solution which the bible presents - the return of Christ.

Already relegated to the 1.99 bin - a thousand years from now, our ancestors will shake their heads sadly.

What then, is the purpose of the book? It is a warning intended to show the reader how the events and trends of this age are leading to certain disaster.

Where have I heard this swan song before? Oh yeah - "The Earth is degenerating today. Bribery and corruption abound. Children no longer obey their parents, every man wants to write a book, and it is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching."
Assyrian tablet, c. 2800 BCE

There is a danger in the present material comfort we enjoy. This comfort tends to allow us to over look signals and signs which should be making us change our lives. Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, terrorism, bombings, wars, chemical and biological weapons. These things are a serious threat, and yet the present system we live in grinds along without any changes. There is a reason for this: The system we live in is engineered to destroy us. The system of governments, banks, corporations, media agencies, computer technology, and even the modern education system, is an intelligent, coordinated effort to destroy us.

Yeesh! Paranoid much? I already gave away the punch line, no?

 And it is orchestrated by Satan the devil, through occult and secret societies, who conduct the affairs of the world through unwitting politicians and corporate profit agendas.

What was that battle cry in the old Marvel comic books? ""Hail HYDRA! Immortal HYDRA! We shall never be destroyed! Cut off one limb and two more shall take its place! We serve the Supreme Hydra, as the world shall soon serve us!" I've said it before, I'll say it again: these people live in a comic book.

This is not a statement which will make it through the paradigm filters of the average reader. Talk of Armageddon, conspiracies, satanic cults, etc., are all classified by society’s collective mind as the fringe, the paranormal.

Ummm...my guess is that you 'occultic governmental conspiracy theorists' are usually among the top five percentile of the walking wounded? Couple that with the chomping-at-the-bit desire to see society collapse, well, they're just not...well.

Real life consists for most people of far more immediate threats, like paying the bills, advancing in one’s job, passing school exams, and getting a good parking spot at the office.

Call it reality, chum. Something you obviously struggle with on a daily basis.

Unfortunately, the time is upon us when none of these things will matter. All the "sensible" concerns of everyday life are about to become totally meaningless.

Gloom and DOOM is predicted! Head for your bomb shelters! Or better yet, reach for your bible!

 As it is written:

Oh joy. It's been reached for.

They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be an unclean thing. Their silver and gold will not be able to save them in the day of the LORD’s wrath.

Ezekial 7:19

Bloody well can't even spell Ezekiel properly.

It is difficult to envision that the seemingly stable North American culture could be overturned. That is because for most of us, we have not been exposed directly to war and disaster. Such things are only images on TV. They happen to other people in far away places.

Only rational thing he's said thus far.

But we are about to be consumed by the most horrifying and violent events in history. These events are foretold in the bible.

So it is written. Oh wait: these 'prophecies' (which were entirely topical) never came true anyways.

This book describes what is wrong with our world. I feel that no book or documentary in modern times has addressed the question of what is wrong with the world from a spiritual viewpoint.

Mostly because this 'spiritual viewpoint' is about as useful as mental masturbation.

Every discussion of world problems seems to be focused on very narrow subject matter, such as the economy or environmentalism for example. I do not feel that such limited discussions are useful, and I think they actually obscure the real issue, which is this: Who is in control of the present age and what is the agenda driving the events of this world?

Quoth the Church Lady: "Could it be SATAN?"

I have never read any book or heard any speaker address this question from the standpoint of religion combined with an analysis of technological and economic factors.

Because religion gets it all wrong, maybe?

 That is the aim of this book. I want to discuss what is fundamentally wrong with the world, and show how every modern development of our age is used to further an agenda which can be traced back to the fallen angel who is Satan the devil.

So now technology is a tool of Shaitan, the great Deceiver? Porch light's on, but it's flickering.

I struggled for years with the question of whether it was even possible to write such a book, given the enormity of the subject.

Or the irrevelance?

There are so many historical developments and social trends which play a role in the story. How can such a story be organized and told in a cohesive manner? Finally I decided to go ahead with the project based solely on my faith in God and my gut instinct. The result is the book you are reading.

Time better spent actually learning something of use, I'd say.

The basic premise on which I base my work can be found in one simple scripture:

"No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit."

Luke 6:43-44

Allegory. It's the mental crack of the right hemisphere, all right.

The words are those of Christ. The concept that we can determine the merit of something by the results it produces is the basis of my whole investigation, research and writing.

I could go on at length about the results produced by Christianity, but for the sake of brevity, I shan't.

I believe that we have allowed ourselves to become trapped by a system which takes away the joy from our lives and forces us to live in an unnatural and unfulfilling way. I believe that this unnatural form of life is being reinforced through the media, for the purpose of maintaining the dominant position of the government, banks and large corporations, who work together for a common and sinister goal. I do not believe that we live in a democratic, free market economy, but rather our economy and "democratic process" is manipulated in every respect, and the illusion of democracy and a free market is created and sustained by those in power. This triumvirate of banks, government and large corporations has complete control over the media, which is used to maintain the illusion of a free society.

I might go along with some of that, but this invested occult crap is hardly what I'd term a resource.

A person chooses to believe whatever they want to believe.

 A momentary glimmer of reason.

You can choose to believe the version of reality which is displayed on the news, or you can question it.

Another one! Hmmm...

 This book is written for those who question the standard, mainstream, scientific version of reality which is flogged in newspapers and on CNN. You then, have a choice to make.

I hear the echoes of Ben Stein in that, for some reason.

 Do you want to understand truth, which Christ has promised will set you free (John 8:32), or do you want to believe the comfortable lies which now surround you, which caress you gently and rock you to sleep at night? The awakening to truth is not comfortable, just as it is often uncomfortable to get up on a cold dark morning, but life awaits those with the courage to face each day. It is the unknown which you must resolve to assault.

Wait: assault on the unknown? What?

 You must resolve this to such a degree that you are even prepared to die for it, since, once you know what is really going on in this world, you become an enemy of this world, and your life will never be the same.

So we're pawns in some cosmic chess game between a deity and demiurge? That doesn't sound crazy how?

I'm already deemed an 'enemy of this world': I'm an atheist. People won't let me marry their daughters (well, maybe Jewish folks: most of them don't get all lathered up over un-belief), I can't get custody of my kids in some states, can't get elected to office in those same states, there's a quite a list on that one, believe you me.

So then, make your decision.

How long halt ye between two opinions?

- 1 Kings 18:21

My (humble) opinion is that this loon gets some therapy, toot sweet.

His TOC lists titles I've not delved into, but pretty easy to guess at content - the anti-gun agenda, the anti-gun agenda, the alien agenda,

alien abductions and the CIA, etc. Only thing left out was crop circles.

This has been the Apostate, reporting from la-la land, thanking the genetic lottery that I wasn't infected by this slavish silliness.

TIll the next post, then.
