Category Archives: Religion for the Practical Mind

Man innately wants to dominate other men, and, despite protestations from some corners that we are no different than apes, he also has an active awareness of right and wrong.

Received the material at the bottom from an autobiography of Charles Darwin today, re: disbelieving in divine revelation. 

Given the continuing effort by the MSM-academia-political left cabal to suppress the country’s foundation principles and that, along with millions, I am getting pretty much fed up with it, I decided to respond:

My own views on this are complex, but I am not so cocksure as to believe that as a regular human being I can be as conclusive as Darwin presents himself here concerning matters beyond my, and his, temporal grasp.

I accept it has his opinion.  And I accept the fallen nature of man.  I accept the gullibility and innate desire men have to dominate with their views.  I accept a world with ambiguity and vicissitude.  I do not accept darkness and oblivion after death.  And I hope I will be back to try again.

“I gradually came to disbelieve in Christianity as a divine revelation.  The fact that many fake religions have spread over large portions of the earth like wildfire had some weight with me.  But I was very unwilling to give up my belief; I feel sure of this for I can remember often an often inventing day-dreams of old letters between distinguished Romans, and manuscripts being discovered at Pompeii or elsewhere, which confirmed in the most striking manner all that was written in the Gospels.

“But I found it more and more difficult, with free scope given to my imagination, to invent evidence which would suffice to convince me.  Thus disbelief crept over me at a very slow rate, but was at last complete.  The rate was so slow that I felt no distress, and have never since doubted even for a single second that my conclusion was correct.”

It does not take a rocket scientist to realize that many Americans today are either not religious at all, deists, partially religious, or full believers of various stripes. Historically speaking that mix is not new.

What is relatively new is that we are constantly reminded by our MSM and others that it is taboo or at least bad form to openly discuss religion in any way (there is more and/or it is worse depending upon your point of view).

For a long time, like many people, I accepted the pablum and weak-sounding propaganda that constitutes much of what passes for knowledge of Judeo-Christian religious origins on this side of the Atlantic.

Over the past period I have taken a deep dive into the history of the Houses of Judah and Israel (using those terms to simplify). It has been eye-opening.

The link below is not about religious belief per se, but about Biblical prophesy and who America really is in those terms. You may totally disagree with it. You may, as I did, find some of the conclusions a bit tenuous. But going through the whole thing is illuminating, and, at the end of it all, a bit hard to argue with.

It is also a warning.

The inhabitants of the world do not align themselves well or consistently with the ideologies and behavioral theories the elitists use to classify the great unwashed and to “direct” our values and beliefs. We all approach all things through our own lense. All attempts to suppress our individualities ultimately fail.

Want to thank God for something? That is a good candidate
