Dei Eif Posted March 22 Share Posted March 22 The world is full of evil. The world has always been full of evil. Cults run the world, whether or not they are called cults or just groups of people engaging cult like behaviour. Religions have spilled blood all through history, repressed any other identity but theirs all through history. There are glimmering points of light within religions, acts we have taken as society that move us away from ingrained evil practice. There's people who live by this standard or that standard of good behaviour. Yet the world looks worse than ever if one considers the volumetrics of amount of humans and amount of suffering without even bothering to examine any other form of evil through wilfulness or ignorance or moral and economic despotism. There's more starvation, murder and warfare than there ever was in history. There's more toil by the impoverished for the decadence of technologically superior nations than ever. There's more animals living lives of abject misery for a cheap unhealthy meal by an ungrateful small percentage than ever. There's more environmental degradation and ecological collapse than any other rate of mass extinction we think we know about. Where is God? Where are the angels? The devil I'm sure is somewhere influencing everything and is the one who is laughing at the state of the world. The one who manufactures ignorance where enlightenment would grow of its own accord. The one strengthening the corruption in all our social systems and there surely are demons walking around in human form or floating around in pseudo human form. A good person can be found, as I said by this standard or that standard they are at the very least good. Evil people seem far more prevalent or noticeable if you will, if possibly less in volume than good people, though I truly believe most people are really just shitty examples of humanity. But truly evil people, demons in human form, they are killing and torturing and kidnapping and profiting off of suffering. To me that's far closer to demonic than a good person, even a great one, even the greatest person possible could be said to be angelic, because angels are supposed to make war on demons aren't they? Imbued with divine energy capable of the miraculous. How would a human let alone do any of that conquer evil besides killing an evil person or putting in jail for life an evil person, the bill for which our taxes collectively pay for? So if we think in terms that examine our collective notions from every culture, there is a story of a war between God and the devil. It's told many ways in many places but the story or notion itself seems universal to the human condition and story of humanity. Is it possible that God lost this battle? Had sundered whatever form God required to be a singular being and became scattered across creation? This idea exists in many religions also though it's rarely attributed to the slaying of God by Satan, it's generally said to be one state of God who can exist however God decides, simultaneously everywhere. Doesn't that sound more like dying than eternally living? Maybe what Satan intended was to gain the energy of God to take God's place but like Obi Wan Kenobi turning into nothing Satan was left like Vader stomping on God's robe and then in resentment went down from on high to slowly rot as a king of nothingness with nothing left to gain or seize? To me this would explain a world where religions have defined themselves by violence or pride in their own doctrines, it's far easier to be evil than to stay good and one finds pathways to success in this world laid out for evil people. It would explain a struggle like chipping away at a mountain through history in order to see a world that is not oppressive on all sides all whilst the mountain is built up higher by the bones of greed exacting blood and life for its own largesse and comforts. Some religions say this world is a test for us to earn an eternal reward or an eternal suffering. If suffering is all that awaits evil people and evil spiritual beings, why is the energy of evil so strong in the world? Surely the source of evil and it's machinations would be far too preoccupied with its own suffering to aid and abet all the ill doings of humanity. If eternal reward awaits the good, what point is there to a single life of struggling to attain it? It seems like swimming across an ocean of suffering to spend the rest of forever in a nice warm pool. You work hard in this place to forget about it completely. Makes more sense I suppose than working 60 years to retire for 10 to yourself with as much capability to enjoy it as the first 10 before work of some kind began to define everything, and who is the work for in the world I've described? Surely not for Gods plan if this is what it looks like? Where did we go wrong? When did we ever go right? How do you believe in attainment of not being part of the test anymore and if the attainment is continuing with this place in the next life, why is it always getting much worse for the small improvements we fight and die to gain? WHAT FUCKING SENSE IS THERE TO THIS CREATION? IF LUCIFER OR WHATEVER YOU CALL THE SLAYER OF GOD WAS INSANE TO KILL GOD AND SUCCEEDED, ISN'T AN INSANE WORLD WHAT WOULD BE CREATED? Like any murderer tortured by remorse and driven further into insanity, so does the mocking voice of a God who seems more like an invoked memory worth doing any good deed in the name of seem to torture the very fabric of a world dominated by evil through all its history. What "living" God would allow that? What more but a "dead" one could inspire one such as lowly as I am to think this way and dedicate my life to the destruction of evil and dismantling of its systems, but not for the sheer spite of it? That's as close to the truth about me as I can fathom. I'm somewhat good by some standard, certainly not a living demon or wilfully evil, but I'm just as shitty an example of humanity as anyone at times and my strongest motivation is pure spite for the idea that the devil is behind all of it. I don't even care if that's true I'll continue to spite evil for that exact reason until I die. And I can't wait to find out what the fuck is actually wrong with creation. Sincerely, some guy. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
