The Secrets of Scientology

Another pyramid scheme undermined (to the "third degree") due to the decentralization of knowledge these days.... reminds me of the old days on Usenet when information first began to leak out. In any event, I wonder if John Travolta wants to leave the "church"?

Axis of Awesome - 4 Four Chord Song (with song titles)

Evidence of the decline of American civilization? For all their technology the American people may be becoming dumb and dumber in general. Fortunately the gospel isn't about high levels of intelligence or complexity structured by the if/then forms of logic that all notions of law and order rest on. It doesn't take intelligence to understand that one is a sinner in need of salvation, especially when the mysterious ordering principle of life within our being dissipates in old age and death. Ironically, the intelligent and wealthy actually have a harder time understanding their need for salvation because they are more capable of ordering their lives and providing for themselves or inventing stories in which it isn't so. But then they die.

Daughters longing to give birth to the gods of old these days...

They sacrificed unto demons, which were no God...
Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, And hast forgotten God that gave thee birth.
And Jehovah saw it, and abhorred them, Because of the provocation of his sons and his daughters.
.... They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; They have provoked me to anger with their vanities...
I would scatter them afar, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men; Were it not that I feared the provocation of the enemy, Lest their adversaries should judge amiss, Lest they should say, Our hand is exalted...
How should one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Except their Rock had sold them, And Jehovah had delivered them up?
For their rock is not as our Rock... (Deuteronomy 32)
Perhaps it would be simpler to observe that the demon gods of old invariably lead people toward their own type of categorical perversion of the order of things. They left their place in the true version of things to become perverts and so they tend to make people in their own likeness. The categorical distinction that they violated and perverted was that between man who is "little lower than the angels" and angels/gods, which according to the great theologian Katy Perry can be imagined to live in a different part of electromagnetic spectrum and possess a sort of animal magnetism.*   Artists seem to like to try to engrave gods of this sort in their imagery, if not directly on their own image by piercing and marking themselves like the prophets of Baal of old.

People who sing to the old gods and long for them and worship them and so on tend to do the same thing as their gods in our realm in violating basic natural categories as we know them.  Even if they were deceived into thinking that a different basic order to things existed, they would willfully violate that too.  People who long for gods of that sort and sing to them tend toward perverting the distinctions between male and female (homophilia), child and adult (pedophilia), human and animal (zoophilia) and so on in their own realm. It doesn't have to be a sexual perversion but that is often how it is expressed, as is illustrated in the graven imagery on pyramid schemes of the past as well as in the "new" music videos of American artists.

We're a long way from not wearing mixed fabrics and so on to uphold basic distinctions or to be a ceremonially ordered people set apart these days. On the other hand, "You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3)  Thus the death of perversion and the symbolic snakes that eat their own tales.  It's all symbolic, except when it's literally time to exit the current scheme of things. 

*You're so hypnotizing
Could you be the devil?
Could you be an angel?

Your touch magnetizing
You're from a whole 'nother world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I'm ready to go
Lead me into the light

Kiss me, kiss me
Infect me with your love and
Fill me with your poison

Take me, take me
Wanna be a victim
Ready for abduction're an alien
Your touch so foreign
It's supernatural...
This is transcendental
On another level're my lucky star

I wanna walk on your wave length
And be there when you vibrate

A different song from the same artist:

I can feel a phoenix inside of me
As I march alone to a different beat
I am ready for the road less traveled
Suiting up for my crowning battle
This test is my own cross to bare
I can see the heavens but I still hear the flames
Calling out my name
I can see the writing on the wall
I can't ignore this war
I can feel this light that's inside of me
Growing fast into a bolt of lightning
I know one spark will shock the world, yeah yeah
So I pray for a favour like Esther
I need your strength to handle the pressure
I know there will be sacrifice
But that's the price
At the end, at the end
Who am I living for?
At the end, at the end
Who am I living for?

(The writing is on the wall for Lucifer the light bearer, the one who falls like a bolt of lightning.  American artists could sing about anything in the brave new world, yet they sing of ancient symbols and signs.  There is nothing new under the sun.)

Longing for the return of sinister gods and their pyramid schemes...

Random verses:
The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. (Genesis 6:4)

The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature.
And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. (Numbers 13)

Now I desire to put you in remembrance, though ye know all things once for all, that the Lord, having saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
And angels that kept not their own principality, but left their proper habitation, he hath kept in everlasting bonds under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (Jude 1:6)

....he went and preached unto the spirits in prison, that aforetime were disobedient, when the long suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water... (1 Peter 3:20) were the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man. (Matthew 24:37)

A lack of judgment?

Fun and games with symbols and signs...

Baseball, who knew?  Actually, almost everyone seems to know what it means to get to a different base, intuitively. ;-) I didn't watch the whole video, looks like he may be a gnostic so be careful.  ;-)

Read the apostle Paul, have discernment.... while recognizing that gnostics are often using the symbolism by which God wrote us a story just like gentiles/pagans of the past did. Now the same types of symbols and signs are used by those who think that they can be as gods in order to write their own history and stories. They try to square the circle and nail the Word to a tree in their sacred geometry. 

Symbols and signs lie all around, as the herd plods on without its Shepherd.

Interesting convergence of American Idols

Holy crap....

Evolution can produce some amazing things if given the right information from the very beginning. But I'm not convinced that dirt (even "primordial dirt") has that information. This whole idea that ancient dirt held some magical power of self assembly is just the article of faith for a weird "dirt cult" which apparently you've bought into lock stock and barrel. .... beauty, like complexity, begs certain questions, does it not? Or are you so self-assured that beauty is just "evolving dirt" that the questions are already answered in your mind? .... Wow. It's almost as if ancient dirt was thinking ahead. It's magical. I'm starting to understand why you joined your "dirt cult". It's like, wow man, "dirt" holds all the answers to life and beauty and everything! Let's form a drum circle! .... Yes, I understand. Scientists, being rational, believe that life was designed by dirt. .... Scientists want to discover the mind of dirt. They want to become one with dirt, to gain the wisdom and infinite creative power that dirt possesses. ...

Come on let's hold hands….

"I believe in the one ancient dirt, maker of all things. And in the protocell, the Son of dirt, begotten of dirt, the essence of dirt, by whom all life was made. Who for us became incarnate and evolved, born perfectly of a sterile earth. By whom dirt took body, soul, and mind, evolving into everything that is man, truly and not in semblence. Dirt suffers, dirt dies, dirt rises again, dirt recycles itself and designs itself, only to become dirt. We believe in the One Universal Apostolic Holy Church of Dirt, and the scientism that defends it's miraculous and holy nature."
