The Weak and the Strong

As I work through the revelations in my last post about the likely roots of Christianity belonging to Rome, I have come to realize an additional motivation for the creation of religions.  In the past, I focused mainly on how we as

Caesar’s Messiah

“All religions are equally sublime to the ignorant, useful to the politician, and ridiculous to the philosopher.” – Lucretius (Roman Philosopher 99 B.C.E. – 55 B.C.E.) I have recently discovered a fascinating book and documentary entitled “Caesar’s Messiah,” by Joseph Atwill,

Something from Nothing?

In my response to my last post, “A Theory of Relativity,” I discussed why I question the notion of an “expanding” and “contracting” universe, since that which “expands” and “contracts” is necessarily limited and finite.  Since there can be no

A Theory of Relativity

In a discussion just a couple days ago with my best friend for life, he expressed his thoughts on the perfect balance of the Universe… that for every positive, there must also be a negative… for every outward there must also be an

It’s Not About “Me”

I have said it over and over again on this site – the truth ego is illusion, and all which serves to justify the ego is illusion and is ultimately, not true.  While the ego is ultimately illusory, it is not necessarily

Human BEING…

The ego is the very notion of identity – the notion of “I,” or “me,” as separate and distinct from “other.”  One of the ways the ego distinguishines and defines itself from others is it clings to ideas it finds appealing to itself,

True Faith, True Love

Throughout my writings on this site, I speak very critically of faith, because it is the acceptance as true that for which we have neither evidence, or at least good evidence, nor sound reasoning, which is the essence of laziness, dishonesty, and untruthfulness. What
