"Trying to define God the infinite with the finite human intellect is like pouring a trillion pounds of sugar into a one-bound bag." - Akhtar H. Emon

"To find one's self alone in the possession of power over nature, to know that one is responsible for every decision and that one's own strength is all that can be relied upon, amounts to an intolerable situation.

If the myth is challenged, it ceases to exist, and man, with his blinders removed, has to face an excruciating reality."

Jacques Ellul

Rational purpose of the recognition of a Supreme Being is to preserve systematic unity in the empirical use of reason.


"The idea of a ground of objects of experience helps organize knowledge.

Keep before your mind the idea of Unity in this body of phenomena."

Frank Thilly



"To glorify God is to honor and participate in a most glorious manifestation.

God is known, after all, as the Creator, and so to glorify God is to revere and participate in that Creation.

Our gifts are creative gifts.

The gifts of mind and hand that make us human, the gift of life itself, enable us to participate uniquely in the ongoing process of creation.

Our lives are a gift, and the way to pass on that gift is to live that life as beautifully as we are able." - Charles Eisenstein

"He formed gods of the most preposterous and ridiculous kinds: these became the sole objects of his hope, and the creatures of his fear: he was unhappy, he trembled under these imaginary deities; under the supposed influence of imaginary beings forged by himself; under the terror inspired by blocks of stone; by logs of wood." - Paul-Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach

"The idea of God as a separate power external to nature who enforces morality is a crutch for the mind lost in the myth of separateness, a means of understanding the consequences of our treatment of others. The concept of a supernatural god might have a salutary effect in the short term, but runs the risk of reinforcing the illusion of separation."- Charles Eisenstein


The word "God" and the word "Jehovah" are not found anywhere in the original Biblical scriptures.

Jehovah is a version of YHWH which is found in the Torah but not found in the New Testament.

The true name of the Hebrew God is transliterated as El, Elah, Eloh, Eloah; in a plural form to express grandeur, Elohim.

A god in Arabic is transliterated as Ilah.

Muslims believe that the actual name of God is Allah but anyone who has traveled back in a time machine to ancient Ugarit knows the name of God is El.

"He gave himself up without enquiry to men like himself, whom his prejudices induced him to contemplate as beings of a superior order, as gods upon Earth, they profited by his ignorance, took advantage of his prejudices, corrupted him, rendered him vicious, enslaved him, and made him miserable." - Paul-Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach

No human individual is perfect and no human individual need be put upon a pedestal of worship.


religion of statism

When the State becomes God

Statism Is Slavery

godlike

an object idealized as significant

Invisible entities, thought to own and control some incremental part of nature or reality, expressed as natural phenomena or took the guise of an animal - and in Greece - humans.

Archaic unity consciousness recognizes all of nature as interconnected.

This recognition is transformed into the unified belief of Creation taking the form of a pregnant woman, a Mother Goddess analagous with the Earth, who embodies the Creation of Life and brings the prosperity of life to the Tribe.

We named her Gaia.

The theory of God as the Mother of Life and everything else is a natural concept.

As humans filled and overburdened the ecological niches in the Middle East, after being driven out of a drying Sahara, theories of the Nature of the Creator morphed into one in which the template for the conceptual image was based on the Alpha Male head of the tribe.

This Animal Kingdom conceptual image is clearly intended for a warlike people who will be blessed when they gain control of an adjacent ecological niche, allowing further expansion of their Wetiko centered tribe.

As the nature of the Creator is not easily described it is easy to understand why a conceptual image would take the form of familiar objects that already exerted an influence over the course of human existence.

People naturally project onto the Creator an archetypical image of power or force already existent in their natural conceptual image of reality.

The Bible shows an amazing evolution or transformation of the conceptual image of the Creator.

The Old Testament image of the Creator is a distinctly Hebrew image penned by the Hebrews of Alexandria who took up the narrative style of Herodotus.

The New Testament image of the Creator is basically an amalgamation or synthesis of the mythical modes of describing reality of the Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, Hebrews and, finally, the Romans.

The Synoptic Gospels introduce the narrative style of Herodtus broadly.

The evolution of the conceptual image of the Creator shows a change from one in which the Creator is the patriarch of the tribe with warrior intentions to one in which the people are charged with no longer being warriors but farmers as Rome needed a quarter cut of all harvests to stay alive and, unlike Alexander the III of Macedonia, had no problem with conscripting legionaires. (Kinda like getting 'contractors' in Iraq.)

The Septuagint should be rewritten to say:

"In the beginning, man not understanding the the Nature of the Creator designed the concept of God in the image of man.
"



attributes of the Creator

Nothing is known to exist outside Nature.

Nothing can be known that exists outside Nature.


If nothing can exist of be known to exist 'outside of nature' then

if a Creator exists that Creator must exist within nature.

Omnipresence requires being everywhere at once.

Omnipotence can only be had by being everywhere at once.

Omniscience, as well, requires being everywhere at once.

Existing everywhere at once the Creator permeates nature.

The essence of the Creator exists renewing all things.

All that lives is sacred - an extension of the Creator.



highest form of ignorance

"He who disbelieves this truth
is spoken of as one devoid of understanding."
Psalms 14:1

The term 'Gnosis' is a Greek word expressing a method of understanding, true knowledge through intuitive consciousness tapping total personal experience.

Achieving Gnosis, a mystical experience, is equivalent to stepping into Nirvana, reaching Integral consciousness or walking the Thinspace.


is the question of God simply
one based on a definition of terms ?


Pattern recognition within Nature with the dawning of rational consciousness allowed men to predict future occurrence based on current observation.

Nature has a structural patterned order making it possible to accurately predict future conditions.

Natural patterns recognized in nature are seen as being actively created.

God and Nature are interchangeable in the subconscious.

Natural processes are never static and always in flux; in motion.

Electrons conducted through a copper wire is not a supernatural process!

But it was seen as such by many before electricty was common.

An abstract concept must make use of metaphorical examples.

How does one describe the living consciousness permeating nature?

Mankind has attempted to quantify and qualify, in the normal categorization processes of the human mind, all aspects of the ecosystems they inhabit.

To describe the force that propels exceedingly complex transformations throughout nature people have used words like transcendent, eternal, omniscient, omnipresent, or their equivalents in local language.

The Greek had Schools of Thought:

psychology, sociology, biology, zoology, geology, ecology, ideology, theology, oncology, paleology, phenology, iconology, demonology, seismology, lexicology, volcanology, meteorology, criminology, eschatology and rationally designed gods cheating and eating mortals.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
