Just as "the family that prays together stays together," so does "the family that kills together, or that robs banks together."..but not always
Does this mean then that if someone is not
a member in good standing, in any of those groups, that those group members have better
"social skills" than those who do not
belong to them, and those who actually prefer to stay outside
of such groups? Are such outsiders then standoff-ish or anti-social by comparison?
Are all families that belong to religious groups extra holy and sinless when compared to those which do not
belong to religious groups? Is there such a thing as piety for show
and not for real?
Alternatively, can atheists be moral or ethical without
believing in God?
How about Quantum theorists?
If you can answer "sometimes" yes and "sometimes" no, to any
of these questions, then they cannot be considered to represent abstract truth for all in absolute terms. That also means they cannot be heard to be, or accepted as, "symptoms" of individual mental illness in absolute terms. Operating theories
which are proved to be wrong, or fallible, MUST
be rejected. The failure to do so is the promotion of group/collective
delusion which will require
the sacrifice of innocent people to maintain it.
It's not rocket science. Is it? For Your Christian Consideration
Especially for those of you who like to wear your Christianity like a badge of superiority
...I have another question.
Do you think it was a terrible thing that the people of Jesus' day mocked Him, ridiculed Him, taunted Him and expressed their overt contempt for Him?
Would your answer change
if I referred to Him" with a small
"h" like in "her" or "him"? Do you think such group behaviour no longer exists? Or do you think that the people who do it THESE
days only do it to those who REALLY
Have any of you local Christians ever mocked, ridiculed and expressed your contempt for me? Or did I just hallucinate that?
Did any of you hide the truth and then deny
what you did to save yourselves and take care of your own interests at my expense?
Do you get a glimmer at all, as to any reason WHY
the people who are driven into breakdown by others
who can't be held accountable for their group behaviour, and others
who deny all knowledge of being "at cause", might "think" they, the ones broken
under pressure, are, or are like
Let's meditate on that one conceptually, rather than so literally, shall we?
How about letting all the Christians who are determined to save all of us lost "others" answer this one? I await your well anticipated "corrections." Intervention Anyone?
I caught a piece of a Perimeter Institute lecture on TVO on the weekend.
The quantum crew was discussing the theory that the human brain was actually connected in some way to space/time.
You may recall that I said something about the "time distortion" of the altered state of consciousness known as "psychosis."
means "psychic condition', or pertaining to the mind)
I was talking about the time distortion
I experienced in my own altered state in 95 which I described as being caused by a disconnect from concrete reality, which occurred when I became unable
to stay connected to
it, due to the non stop contradiction and multiple versions of it with which I was being bombarded. Of course this experience of concrete reality was all denied
since we can not blame "others" who can never
be blamed for anything. But....I digress..you know how us nuts love our self contained symptom of "thought disorder."
My question is this:
Will a planned intervention for all those weirdos at the Perimeter Institute, who tend to sound disturbingly like ME
in many ways, be organized soon?
(Get the depot injections ready. I have a "psychic" hunch THAT
bunch is going to deny they are mad and "resist" treatment!)
By the way..."Superior Christian" is actually a contradiction in terms.
For people who can't take ANYTHING "we" say at "face value" you sure seem to be able to take all the metaphors used that way!
