Subvert whatever little remains of the religious paradigm.

Science can inferentially study matter and derive much benefit from it by tapping into its powers but by using objective methods science will never understand how the intelligent principle imprinted in matter inheres in matter nor what its intrinsic nature actually is since consciousness despite being an integral aspect of matter is a subjective experience.

The way things stand, it's evident to all with a little intelligence that matter has an objective side and it also has a subjective aspect.

Creationists have no place in a knowledge-based society. All their ideas on creation from nothing, extra-cosmic God, existence of a spirit or ruach or nephesh and ideas of sin or of heaven or of hell are baseless and vain repetitions of the infantile rantings of the ignorant prophets/patriarchs of scripture.

Religious rituals like shabbath, church service, fasting, salat, pilgrimage and pooja are so many wasteful practices that trap the minds of believers in a dangerous time warp and which retards the further evolution of consciousness.

Using powerful aspiration, certain sounds and concentrated thought one can give shape to a form of energy - to a God or to many Gods - that corresponds to your construct.

If the will of the meditator is potent enough, the formation - the God - that he has shaped in energy field persists for centuries if not millennia and is supported or is kept in proper shape with a few variations by the successors of the original prophet who created the energy form in the past. Heavens or hells are simply the stations in space-time these formations occupy. This is why we see a change in commands or teachings or of personality or of name of the created God or of the created Gods down the ages.

YHVH, Shiva, Kali, Baphomet, Baal and others are such example of Gods created as peculiar energy formations by powerful meditators in the past.

Present day believers simply sustain the energy forms of these created God or Gods by focused prayer which is nothing but mind impressing on matter which then sustains the energy form of the God or of the Gods.

So, God or the Gods are human creations.

Anyone with a powerful will and deep meditative capacity of tuning into the energy field can create a God or many Gods.

CONCLUSION: Everything in the whole of existence is an integrated field of energy, matter and consciousness with certain formations (natural phenomena) coming into existence due to natural causal mechanisms and in addition there exist certain other forms of energy (God or the Gods) that were created by inventive human effort in the distant past that made use of a powerful will and by impressing in the energy field certain potent mental imagery via powerful meditation techniques that then took animated form in a particular spatio-temporal dimension of the energy field and which've been sustained down the ages by fear, aspiration and prayer to these created forms of energy (God/Gods). So, there's nothing mysterious or awe-inspiring about the existence of God or of the Gods - they're ancient human creations as described above.

No wonder, like human nature, these formations of energy - God or the Gods - created by powerful human effort in the distant past are anthropopathic creatures displaying human qualities like rage, jealousy, murderous instincts, cruelty, possessiveness, love to those who bow before them and the like.

I will have nothing to do with these anthropopathic gods of the various religions that are mere creations of human effort involving the occult.

HIGH RISK IN RELIGION:

Worshippers of these energy formations (God/Gods) created by human effort are invariably unbalanced in mind and emotions by these energy formations (God/Gods) whose frequencies of vibration, mostly of a distorted kind, exceed those of the normal frequencies at which ordinary human beings operate. Besides, these energy formations (God/Gods) of past human effort have been imbued with the worst personality traits of their human formateurs (creators) and so anyone worshipping any of these created energy formations (God/Gods) stands a high risk of being unsettled in mind and emotions which as a result is manifested in the worshipper as fanaticism, insanity, savagery and disturbing vibes which these believers radiate.

The Jewish messiah was someone who would liberate the Jews from the Roman Occupation. Since the Roman Empire no longer exists, is it right to say that they are still waiting for one? Perhaps Frijoles can clarify.
BTW - at the beginning of the first century, many people claimed to be the messiah. Most of them were crucified for the crime of sedition, Jesus included.
rabbee: no! that was not His assignment, The assignment of HaMosheeach is written in TheTorah. He was there to try and find, a true talking critter for his correspondence. you need to check with G-D, in TheTorah first and not fallible men first. i think that false name jesus, is confusing all of you. you need to check with, Who G-D calls as HaMosheeach. G-D does not lie, it never changes. and i am willing to bet, that all you highly intelligent idiots. do not know, what to expect next. after the alleged death, of Adam. cause you are all too goo-ood! to be true arrogant snobs are too goo-ood to be here in this story from G-D again.
