  1. That's a good cliffhanger, you've got me wondering now!
  2. In real life as they doubt the story about Salome dancing for Herod and asking for John's head on a plate. There was a Salome who was a disciple of Jesus mentioned in Mark's gospel that may be the same woman. Though they stop short of saying that Jesus killed John, but his supporters may have conspired behind his back. I've read about such things but didn't realise you could get into it so easily as a seeker, it kinda shows how how religion can get you to do things you'd never expect to. Best to keep your own freedom of thought.
  3. In the forum we talk a lot about the world being in the grip of a powerful conspiracy which exploits human ego, greed, fear and self centredness lower down the pyramid to divide and rule. So if there is a Satanic / Annunaki / Reptilian / alien race at the top, we can still be pretty nasty and petty to each other too. Of course if we all started saying no to evil and not complying with the top of the cabal it wouldn't continue, but then we'd have to replace the status quo with something else and so laziness and inertia play a big part of the problems too. Heaven and Hell are ideas from the Christian religion though so I don't look at it that way.
  4. My my Mr H you're asking some awkward questions, are you ready to open another can of worms ha ha I'm no more knowledgeable than anyone else here, but I've picked up a few bits and pieces along the way. However this isn't orthodox teaching. The book I mentioned elsewhere The Templar Revelation goes into the relationship between Jesus and John the Baptist. It's important to get the timeline right so we don't project later Christian theology about a sinless Jesus Christ onto the earlier history. "Among their conclusions are the following: Jesus was a disciple of John the Baptist, and that John's religious teachings were essentially that of the Egyptian mystery religion of Isis-Osiris-Horus. Jesus was initiated into the inner circle of John the Baptist, but was not selected to succeed him. Rather it was Simon Magus who was selected as John the Baptist's successor. Mary Magdalene had a ritualized, “sacred” sexual relationship with Jesus, in keeping with their religious beliefs, and as his initiator into the sacred mysteries had an equal relationship to Jesus. Politics and religion were synonymous in ancient Israel, and Jesus was an astute and aggressive political competitor against John. The Jesus group may have been responsible for the death of John the Baptist. Jesus’ disciples were not initiated into the inner mysteries of his teachings. The term Christ had a different significance to the participants in the biblical drama than they do nowadays. To those in John the Baptist's circle it would have referred to all who were baptized and initiated into the arcana of their belief system." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Templar_Revelation Initiations involving water were used in the Egyptian mysteries, so it's possible that Jesus's disciples adapted the ceremony when they created their new religion, although without understanding the significance of where it came from. "Rites According to The Golden Ass, the initiation "was performed in the manner of voluntary death and salvation obtained by favor". " "Before the initiation proper, Lucius must undergo a series of ritual purifications. The priest bathes him, asks the gods for forgiveness on his behalf, and sprinkles him with water.[67] This confession of and repentance for past sins fits with an emphasis on chastity and other forms of self-denial found in many other sources about the Isis cult." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mysteries_of_Isis "This cryptic description suggests that the initiate's symbolic journey to the world of the dead was likened to Osiris's rebirth, as well as to Ra's journey through the underworld in Egyptian myth,[248] possibly implying that Isis brought the initiate back from death as she did her husband." "Possible influence on Christianity A contentious question about Isis is whether her cult influenced Christianity.[258] Some Isiac customs may have been among the pagan religious practices that were incorporated into Christian traditions as the Roman Empire was Christianized. Andreas Alföldi, for instance, argued in the 1930s that the medieval Carnival festival, in which a model boat was carried, developed from the Navigium Isidis.[259] Much attention focuses on whether traits of Christianity were borrowed from pagan mystery cults, including that of Isis.[260] The more devoted members of Isis's cult made a personal commitment to a deity they regarded as superior to others, as Christians did.[261] Both Christianity and the Isis cult had an initiation rite: the mysteries for Isis, baptism in Christianity.[262] One of the mystery cults' shared themes—a god whose death and resurrection may be connected with the individual worshipper's well-being in the afterlife—resembles the central theme of Christianity. The suggestion that Christianity's basic beliefs were taken from mystery cults has provoked heated debate for more than 200 years." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isis Sorry for all the reliance on wiki but I'm rushing as usual!
  5. "Communism" being very much in inverted commas because it's nothing like the type of society envisioned by idealistic western intellectuals where the working class gain control and and the ruling class becomes redundant. Whatever we can call the outcome of this communist/capitalist dialectic it looks like a pyramid with its head hidden in the clouds.
  6. Good point, I don't think Putin has insulted his own people like that. Though, as a supposedly good orthodox Christian he isn't concerned about the demographic shift towards Russia becoming more muslim.
  7. Wasn't there a story recently about the Israelis finding an Arabic copy of Mein Kampf in a Hamas house in Gaza? This was paraded as evidence of them being evil people who sympathise with the Nazis, so if you try and read the historical source material and learn about all sides of the subject in an objective way you can easily fall foul of the thought police unless you are an accredited academic in one of the sanitised universities. Nowadays most people are indoctrinated by the system to accept what they are taught and self-censor what they read.
  8. That's very similar to the Buddhist view that 'life is unsatisfactory' and 'all conditioned phenomena are impermanent'. Therefore follow the eightfold path to the 'other shore' of the deathless realm. I guess it's the difference between unconditional happiness and just getting another fix of pleasure. But do we need to invoke the devil to explain it? From the pov of evolution it doesn't seem to promote the 'selfish genes' to be fully contented with what we've already got. A bit of dissatisfaction is like a spur to get us to make an effort to improve things. Unless the selfish gene and the devil are both symbols for the same thing?
  9. From what I can remember the crucifix wasn't the first Christian symbol. There was also chi rho (a pre-existing Roman symbol) and the fish symbol, which were like secret codes because they were an underground movement held in suspicion by both orthodox Jews and Roman pagans. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_symbolism Early Christianity was quite diverse with different ideas until the Roman state took over, the church labelled other views as heresy, and Europe became a totalitarian religious zone.
  10. Of course the Anglos aren't in power anyway but we have been a useful scapegoat for the cabal to hide behind. Look what happens when Anglos do try and organise into tribal groups like the folkish heathens, they get slated as far-right white supremacists or something. So in fact the ptb in our own country are following the same script as Putin, and at the same time we are made to feel guilty about what has happened to tribes in other parts of the world that the cabal's empires have colonised over the centuries. Inconsistencies like this give the game away but to hide their agenda the cabal have created things like critical race theory in occupied academia to prevent us making connections with other victims. I'm currently reading David's book The Biggest Secret where he states that Britain has been a major centre for the Babylonian Brotherhood for millennia although they have tentacles spreading globally. So are we seeing a genuine transfer of power away from the west, or more like a replacement of the troublesome natives to make the Brotherhood's control easier to run.
  11. And of course the sniper is a cross-dresser, nice shade of hair dye and nail polish
  12. Which begs the question of who was compiling the new religion of Christianity and why? The gospels are all named after people, usually the apostles yet modern theologians doubt that they were the actual authors. So if the designers of the new faith were consciously bringing in various legends and traditions from around the ancient world within a broadly Jewish wrapper and trying to convert people away from the prevailing pantheistic pagan expressions, was there a hidden hand and agenda behind it ? It looks like there was a public facing exoteric religion for the masses as seen in the official canon of the new testament and creeds. Also a more esoteric hidden religion of the other non-canonical gospels like the gospel of Thomas.
  13. What, they've only just realised that migration is weaponised replacement? Better late than never I suppose, though I can remember people of my parent's generation talking that way about immigration 50 years ago, before the censorship took hold.
  14. And I wonder what happens to men who become women! Seriously though, the decision on which books became canonized into the New Testament didn't happen until the 390s AD, by humans. It was then taught to the masses that those books were God's word but not the others which were sidelined. Of course the ordinary people weren't allowed to decide it for themselves.
  15. Well I don't have recent experience with Christian churches, but I remember this quote being an embarrassment as I was brought up in a rather liberal church of England environment which saw Jesus as the prince of peace who taught that we should all get along and love each other. In my more recent reading about Jesus I've come across various theories, one of which is that he was a Zealot, or at least influenced by the Zealots who may have talked like that, ie a physical struggle for freedom from the Roman occupation. Put together with the story about him turning over the tables of the money changers in the temple, paints a picture of an aggressive firebrand for Christians who want that. Another theory could be that the quote is metaphorical, and is really about a spiritual struggle, in much the same way we might talk about a moral crusade or the muslims talk about jihad. In any case there's room for a lot of ambiguity and different interpretations like with a lot of religious scriptures, so no wonder there's so many denominations.
  16. It reminds me of a gospel quote, perhaps they're related? "Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and one's foes will be members of one's own household” (Matthew 10:34-36).
  17. The explanation I heard was that the west put sanctions on Russia for invading Ukraine by stopping buying their gas and oil. That caused a price rise so Russia was making more profit margin for the gas and oil it is able to sell to the non-western countries. So the sanctions are probably hurting us more than Russia, and our governments have borrowed money to subsidise energy prices for us. The UK's debt ratio is 103% of GDP compared to 20% for Russia. I guess the covid lockdowns and borrowing could also cause inflation. So this inflation which our governments caused is another transfer of wealth out of the west to other countries which didn't do lockdowns or sanctions.
  18. I don't think I can be much help as I've only been to a spiritualist church once, in about 1980 and it's probably changed since then! But for what it's worth I attended a meeting in Birmingham, it was like a lovely quaint little nonconformist chapel (including a hand-pumped organ) and it started with a short Christian service with the usual hymns and prayers (but not communion), followed with a medium standing up at the front and she gave everyone a short reading. Some had a spirit message, and I got a prediction covering the next few months, though it didn't come true. I've no problem with them but it wasn't my thing and as a teenager I was by far the youngest one there. Very different from a Pentecostal/Charismatic church though. Thanks for triggering the memory it takes me back I have been to some spiritualist type meetings since then with mediums and clairvoyants etc without the church service bit. I'm not too sure what to make of them, some seem genuine but others seem more like showmen up on stage. What's your interest if you don't mind me asking, are you looking for a church to join or wanting to gain some more experiences?
  19. There's a related phenomenon called sleep paralysis, which I used to get occasionally. I'm not sure if it's just a more scientific name for the night hag / old hag, or something a bit different because you can experience the paralysis without seeing a demon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_hag
  20. One way to approach it is to follow the money. What's the £240m we've already given to Rwanda been spent on so far? https://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/uk-paid-rwanda-300-million-blocked-asylum-deal-105490534#:~:text=LONDON -- Prime Minister Rishi,to the East African country. "LONDON -- Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was under pressure Friday to explain why Britain has paid Rwanda 240 million pounds ($300 million) as part of a blocked asylum plan, without a single person being sent to the East African country."
  21. I think they might be Pentecostal churches mostly, tho you can also find most of that singing, dancing, healing, speaking in tongues etc in other churches too like the charismatic evangelicals. One of my local churches is like that. Charismatics aren't limited to any particular denomination imo it depends on the what the minister and congregation want.
  22. Me too. Lynne Pickett has done some work on this, she takes the John the Baptist link into a whole theory about an underground initiatory religion following JTB and worshipping a severed head, that is traced through the Mandaeans and some of the usual suspects like the Templars, Freemasons and Priory of Sion. Leonardo was a leader in that secret religion. See the book The Templar Revelation, and there's an episode of Forbidden History about it too. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12402914/?ref_=ttep_ep2 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Templar_Revelation
  23. If they got a new actor for the starring role I might be bothered to watch them. They've been doing it with James Bond.
  24. The science I heard about soya is that it contains phytoestrogen which mimics the effects of oestrogen, so it's more to do with increasing female hormones than reducing male ones. However soya isn't the only food containing phytoestrogen there's quite a lot and it's difficult to avoid. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytoestrogen However if you're saying this is out of date then I'm happy to discuss it. When I've looked into increasing my testosterone naturally, the advice which I get is the usual stuff about a healthy lifestyle. Eat & drink healthy, don't smoke, do exercise, get enough sleep, manage your stress levels etc.
  25. Some friends of mine had a cough that lasted a couple of months, and I've had one for a few weeks now. We were all vaxxed against the whooping cough as kids, does this mean our immune systems are compromised?
