Like the religious zealot who is continuously trying to gain converts for his or her religion, the Ancient Astronaut Theorist is continuously reacting to those who do not accept their interpretation of history, and they dichotomise the world into the ‘believers’ and ‘heretics’. This is no different to religious thinking modified to serve the purpose of perpetuating yet another myth – namely that of the early visitation to the earth by ancient astronauts.
Just as people believed ‘miracles’ happened during the religiously dominated medieval period, people living in the post-modern era continue this tradition and ‘believe’ that they too are also experiencing paranormal events.
Thich Quang Duc’s action produced a mind altering paradigm shift throughout the world that is still being discussed today. He demonstrated the power of Buddhist mind control during a very painful death – whereas no Christian believers (beyond the realms of imagination, superstition, or the paranormal) have managed to rise from the dead.
Events that have what might be described as a particular ‘frequency’ of manifestation, inevitably invite a certain interpretation that becomes hot-wired into the perceptual system. However, change the manifested frequency – even only slightly – and the ‘certainty’ of what humanity thinks it know falls away completely.
Pope Francis is probably the most dangerous and sinister of recent popes. The Catholic Church has used his appointment to embark upon a sophisticated and multifaceted public relations exercise that is made to look as if it is all the decision of the pope himself, when in reality the Catholic Church is actually run by hidden ecclesiastical groups that are ruthless and do nothing unless it serves their selfish purposes. It is no secret that the Catholic Church assisted Nazi Germany in its attempts to eradicate the existence of European Jewry, and its misogynistic attitudes toward women are so well known as to be almost common-place today, and something of a forgone conclusion.
Applying Marx’s critique of idealism as conveyed in The German Ideology, religious perception of the world is the wrong way around. God did not create the world in a mysterious manner, but rather it is the mind of humanity that has created (or imagined) god and his heaven.
