THE COMPLETE AND EXASPERATING ANSWER – A PAINFUL TRUTH YOU MAY NOT BE READY FOR
Yes. And moreover, a theological (Abrahamic) religion is a barrier to success. And contrary to our intuition, the evidence that supernatural organized religion is the most destructive institution a people can bear. And that Abrahamic religion, in particular, is the most deadly and destructive force responsible for the most death, destruction, harm, and suffering outside of the great plagues and diseases.
GREECE AND ROME
Rome eventually developed a public religion of State, A cultural Religion of Paganism (Heroic Archetypes), Animistic Cults (Nature Worship or ‘Hethensm), and private religions of Aryanism (Supremacy), stocism(Self Discipline in Ordinary Life), epicureanism (Joy in Ordinary Life). The Roman weakness was it’s an emphasis on the military to secure trade, commerce, and tolerance. When had they thoroughly prosecuted Christians and Jews we might never have had the dark age that was Abrahamic religions. So was Rome atheist? No, but it followed the Indo European Traditions of (a) the primacy of man, not gods, (b) the primacy of (joy of) life, not ‘netherworlds’, (c) the primacy of prosperity by heroic expansionary, militaristic, materialistic, paternalistic, sky worshipping, technological, commercial. (d) Reality as tragic and the Conquest of the reality as a heroic achievement – not abandoning reality, or ignoring reality, nor tolerating reality, but conquering it.
CHINA (EAST ASIA)
China is already majority atheist, (and they ridicule westerners for our superstition). Confucianism and Daoism are “Wisdom Literature”, as were stoicism, epicureanism, and closest to Aristotelianism. The difference is western civilization is purely aristocratic, meaning purely military, grants self-determination to everyone (sovereignty) that serves, and produces individualism, as a consequence. China maintained a minority military aristocracy and the ritual was invented to control their outrageous hyperconsumption,.
Buddhism, or reformed Hinduism, only reluctantly devolved from a ‘pseudoscientific’ competitor to stoicism, into a religion. Unfortunately, the extreme pacifism was discovered by aristocracies, just as Christian pacifism and both were imposed in order to suppress male heroism to conquer the forces of nature and man, convert it to feminine heroism in submission to external forces of heroism and man. Both Christian and Buddhism claims of heroism and martial virtues are circumstantial, and antithetical, not intrinsic.
Hinduism isn’t a religion so much as mythological wisdom literature. It’s mythology closest to Confucianism is a rational ‘wisdom literature of harmony and reasonableness’. And India did – although lost it – have a period of political philosophy as sophisticated as the greeks and only lacked the martial discipline of the Romans, so they failed to maintain it. Hinduism fills the borderline between religion and wisdom literature.
THE SUPERNATURAL RELIGIONS OF THE ABRAHAMIC METHOD
Europe didn’t recover from the invasion of Jewish-Christianity until the restoration of Aristotle in 1200. And we are still trying to escape the curse of Christianity, restore nature, ancestor and hero worship (debt), restore truthful empirical speech to levels found in greek and roman thought. *(My specialty is existential truth, the formal logic of the human sciences, and the formal logic of law – mostly for the purpose of suppressing fraud in political speech. The greatest resistance comes from Christians. They behave like addicts. )
Islam managed to destroy every single great civilization of the ancient world, all their institutions, all their learning, all their arts, all their religion, their philosophy and reduced them to mandatory ignorance, superstition, and dysgenia from high rates of reproduction at the bottom, inbreeding and slave-cross breeding and no means of natural selection like far east and northwest. Every great civilization: Rome, Byzantium, North Africa, Egypt, Persia, The Levant, Mesopotamia, NW India, were defeated by raiding commercial transactions (sieges), converted by the threat of 30% increase in taxes for not doing so, the civilizational capital rapidly consumed and exhausted; Persia tried temporarily to collect the information of the known world just as Spain raided the gold of the New world, Napoleon raided the arts of Europe, and Britain raided the monuments of the ancient world, but in the end, as soon as the capital was exhausted, the natural consequence of Islam was the gravity of fundamentalism, and the continuous expansion of ignorance, superstition, and decline, until the Turks, destroyed the Persian hopes of restoration, finally destroyed Byzantium, and as a consequence caused Europeans to develop the Age of Sail to Bypass the Turks. In doing so the entire economy of the middle east, as the market at the nexus of four continents, was eliminated and the ability for the aristocracy to fund militaries and profit from taxing trade was irradicated, and the superstition, ignorance, tribalism, and dysgenia of the Islamic states that had made them unproductive, but so easy to rule, was exposed. Without being gatekeepers to trade, without any civilization left to exploit. Without the ability and trust to form institutions. Without the genetics to educate into an industrial workforce. The middle east fell to Subsaharan African levels, other than for the oil that buoyed them to the present.
Jews were the most literate subgroup in Europe, just as Gypsies mastered specialization in prostitution and petty crime, Jews would not demonstrate loyalty to the Empire so were conquered, and male Jews fled into the diaspora (cities of the various empires) and started out as money changers and sellers of expensive wares to elites, married local woman (mostly italian) then migrated into the mastery in organized crime, and specialized in ‘baiting into hazard’: usury (300% credit), and seducing people into debt then forcibly taking their property and reselling it for profit, they industrialized immorality on credit, including prostitution, spreading alcoholism by selling it on credit (today’s drug dealers), and corruption, working with the government to collect taxes (corruption), and turn the profits into rent-seeking(extractive industries), slaving, all profitable if semi-criminal industries, for which they were consistently cast out of over a hundred countries. Yet they contributed absolutely nothing to human knowledge until they were offered enfranchisement in exchange for abandoning their superstition and adopting western scientific enlightenment (Aristotelianism).
THE NEW PSEUDOSCIENTIFIC RELIGIONS
There is no difference between:
(a) the Abrahamic Religion’s war by Judaism to undermine, Christianity to weaken, and Islam to conquer, consume, and destroy – against the European discovery, adaptation to, and application of the physical laws of the universe, natural laws of cooperation and evolutionary laws of the incremental domestication of animal man – by the Abrahamic false promise of life after death, the denial of reason and agency, the denial of reality, the primacy of the afterlife, the primacy of gods over man, in exchange for undermining the aristocratic civilizations of the ancient world.
- and –
(b) the Abrahamic pseudoscientific religions of Marxism to undermine markets between the classes, and the natural eugenics that results; Neo-Marxism to undermine the cultural norms traditions values aesthetics and institutions that allow us to prosper together despite the tragedy of the physical nature and evolutionary laws;
Both Ancient Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and Modern Judaism, Marxism, Neo-Marxism and Postmodernism, and Islamism, which exist for no other reason than to cast Indo-European civilizations as oppressors rather than the discoverers of, adaptors to, and appliers of, the physical, natural and evolutionary laws – and to foment resentment by those who cannot compete under those laws, against Indo-European peoples as a proxy for their resentment of and hatred of God or gods, for creating those laws of our universe, which Europeans discovered, adapted to and applied.
They sell you the lie that you can defeat the laws of the universe by creating an illusion in your mind, by social construction of reality, through repetition of falsehoods, and the profit from that deception. They profit from the incremental destruction of mankind, the reversal of evolution, and the running-down of the hourglass of time.
They teach the great lie that there is freedom from those laws if they gain freedom from the government of the Indo-European people. When in fact, they are the genetic, cultural, and informational cancer that seeks to reverse evolution and doom mankind to failure to pass thru the great filter, in this brief 12,000 years of geological, solar, and galactic peace.
ONE TRUE RELIGION
There is only one healthy political religion, that is ‘true’.
- Because there is only one set of debts that are true: to the universe, nature, ancestors, heroes, one’s people, and one’s nation.
- There is only one healthy social religion – Epicureanism – live life within your means, enjoying life, family, friends, food, and the world itself.
- There is only one healthy professional religion – ritual (see japan) – wherein every action one takes is as perfect as is possible.
- There is only one healthy personal religion – stoicism (see Aurelius) – which is today called ‘cognitive behavioral therapy’ wherein
- And there is only one religion that teaches all of them: The European Military Tradition of the Universal Militia that is 5000 years old. And all political religions are weak substitutes for the initiatic brotherhood of warriors. Which for evolutionary reasons is the greatest ‘fulfillment’ we humans can experience in life.
Because under the European (and Japanese) military tradition, every man has a duty and is due respect regardless of rank for having done it. Every man is sovereign in his property for having done it. Every man develops mindfulness for having done it. Every man overcomes his limits for having done it. And every man intuits rightly that he ‘owns’ a share of his civilization for having done it – and is in debt to no one for it. Only then is he sovereign in mind, intuition, and body.
This is the secret of western and Japanese high trust civilization. And it is the combination of piety in faith, piety in court, and piety in military service that made western man ‘unique’ and able to create large complex organizations ‘relatively’ or at least comparatively free of corruption.
Only Japan and Western Europe were able to develop these traditions. And only Japan survived the spread of the addiction of the Abrahamic cults, retaining their Ancestor Worship, National Worship, Ritual Work, Martial Discipline, and relative empiricism.
And the postwar attempt by the Jewish left, to bring marxism to the west, has worked every single day to undermine that high trust, that martial character, and all the goods that arrive from it – so that the jews can reduce to ashes from within as they did in Russia, and Germany, what the Muslims have reduced to ashes from without to the lost civilizations of the ancient world.
