Freedom of Religion: Fact and Fantasy

1692 Massachusetts Christian Puritans saw the Devil everywhere

1692 Massachusetts Christian Puritans saw the Devil everywhere

Freedom of religion is a centuries-old expression. In most cases freedom of religion does not exist. It is not accepted by SCOTUS or most courts or jurists. It is not enshrined in the nation, nor in separate states. At best it is a buzzword, but in reality freedom of religion is a fantasy that has enchained the USA since its inception as American colonies.

From Maine to Georgia, the North American colonies were not founded as bastions of theological freedom or the right to disbelieve that which came from the pulpits of the churches that existed in Europe...

When religion triumphs over reason, faith, psychology, investigation, and research, learning dies

Religion has always opposed human freedom. Instead of liberty to expand the mind, religion has sought mind control from the days when the Christian church was formed in 325 CE, to the rise of islam and beyond. Many tortured souls, like Josemaria Escrivá hid behind mortifications of the flesh (flagellation), and pretended, like John Paul II, that these were pious acts encouraged by St. Paul--proving their own linguistic and Biblical illiteracy.Read More

Christmas, Jesus, December 25, and making merry

Christmas is considered a time of families being together, sharing drink, food, dance, and various pleasures--but this has never been the rule for all nor the fortune for everyone, as religions have held it captive, deprived it of its temporal joys, and denied the reality of peace and harmony.Read More

12 Apostles: Constellations, Numerology, &Theology in the world’s religions: Quest to Understand Origins; a study of textual criticism, translation, interpretation and linguistics

The least educated, most gullible turn to fortune-tellers, star-gazers, numerologists and religious fundamentalists in quest of answers that they are too afraid to find for themselves. All religions have gazed to the stars for answers and ordained or commissioned religious leaders to provide rituals that include eating the body and drinking the blood of their crucified saviours. But why is this? This essay explains the foundations of fear and the quest for comfort in a world not known--even seeking relief from extra terrestrials.Read More

Psychology of Saul/St. Paul – A Study of Linguistics, Translation, Interpretation and Biblical Study

Saul of Tarsus claims that he met Jesus of the New Testament in a "blinding light" (a theophany), yet those around him neither heard nor saw anything. Most psychologists define this incident as a seizure. There was more than a physical seizure, but a psychological reworking of the New Testament to contain not the message of peace, but one of war, hate, and division. Read More

Judas did not betray Jesus

There has been a myth circulating his “Christian” circles for about 1800 years that Judas Iscariot, one of the original disciples, betrayed the Jesus of the New Testament.  The news that Judas would betray Jesus came as a surprise to everyone.  Jesus identified the traitor as one who with whom he would share bread, then handed bread to Judas.

As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. “What you are about to do, do quickly,” Jesus told him, but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.

Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the Feast, or to give something to the poor [John 13:27-29].

καὶ μετὰ τὸ ψωμίον τὀτε εἰσῆλθεν εἰς ἐκεῖνον ὁ σατανᾶς. λέγει οὖν αὐτῷ Ἰησοῦς· ὁ ποιεῖς ποίησον τάχιον...

Hell: Interpretation, Psychology and History of an Idea

For centuries hell was cursed and used as a curse against those who did not agree with a rigid religious mistranslation of a single word. The modern-day Hell is Scandinavian in origin (first used in Iceland) and has no relationship to the word used in the Bible, Qur'an or other religious literature. It is the abuse of the word, its mistranslation and misinterpretation that has cost millions their lives and today is one of the roots of suicides among young teenagers in the USA and other "faith-based" nations. What can be done to stop this epidemic?Read More
