PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE – HILARY L HUNT MD

During our lifetimes, it is likely that all of us have observed that everything eventually wears out. What we may not have ascertained is that some things seem to wear out on their own of ‘old age ‘while other things seem to have a planned life span. As an example, fifty-seven years ago, my wife and I bought a Philco-brand upright freezer. We have used it in seven different houses in two different states, and it has never required service of any kind, and still works perfectly. I suspect if I bought an ordinary brand-name freezer today, it would be a rarity if I could get even ten years of uninterrupted service from it without a major repair of some kind, maybe many repairs. There are several reasons possible for that, but the most likely reason is what I call ‘planned obsolescence’. In fact, I did buy an upright freezer three years ago – two major repairs already. Thankfully, I had bought an extended warranty.

I believe ‘planned obsolescence’ mandates everything to be designed and/or constructed for a relative short life span. I suppose one could say it’s for economic reasons. If one could buy a freezer that would last fifty years without repairs today, it likely would be made of the highest quality materials and would be assembled by expert workers making high wages. Consequently, whereas I paid $375 for my old freezer when it was new, such a freezer in today’s economic climate would probably cost seventy-five to one hundred thousand dollars —affordable for a very few — not many workers required — insurance would be superfluous — economy would collapse – civilization would be forced back to ‘pioneer-day’ lifestyles. In fact, at the time I bought my old freezer, society was just recovering from two successive wars and was head over heels into a third, all of which, had pulled society from a pioneer-like existence of the Great Depression into an economic boom where people could afford such items as freezers— the demand had become great. However, manufacturers soon learned that their products were too good, and once the market was saturated, the demand fell off drastically creating another near depression-like environment saved only by the war in Vietnam.

The point I’m getting to is this; there seems, without doubt, to be a planned obsolescence in our entire universe. I have proposed that there is a prefect rationality in our universe and that perfect rationality stems from our Perfect Rational being who I call God. We humans seem to be the most rational beings ever to exist on this earth. Our rationality would appear to mimic that of our creator, albeit far inferior. So, with our reasoning powers, we have concluded that too much of a good thing, or too good-of-a-thing might be detrimental to our existence and wellbeing. We are constantly trying to come up with that exact correct formula — we certainly have not succeeded — we likely never will.  In the meantime, each of us is part of God’s obsolescence plan.

Archeological history shows us that millions and millions of creatures that once roamed this earth are no longer in existence. Without doubt, that seems to be God’s planned obsolescence at work — very likely, the earth could not support and sustain all those creatures and all which have evolved since. So, with his perfect wisdom and planning, he has given each species a timeframe of existence, but each member of that species has a much shorter timeframe on this earth —room must be made for new species and new members of existing species

Now here’s the rub; some human(s) with very imperfect rationalities, presuming to know God and his eternal plan, have positioned humanity as God’s ultimate invention. In fact, they have even described how and when Cod created both his universe and the first man and woman right down to the time of Jesus. In order to make their plan work out as desired, they took Jesus of Nazareth as their messiah and fabricated all sorts of stories and claims about him. Of course, their universe was what they could see — sun, moon, and stars of Milky Way Galaxy. In their ignorance, they had no idea nor any way of knowing that our earth and solar system was truly insignificant in the big scheme of things. Our little solar system is only one of billions in our galaxy alone. Furthermore, it would take light, traveling at 186,000 miles per second, one hundred thousand (100,000) years to traverse our galaxy alone. Now, considering that there are billions and even trillions of galaxies, each containing billions and trillions of stars (suns) in the universe, how significant do you suppose our tiny earth with its ever-rotating population of life is? How many millions or billions of planets similar to earth might there be? It seems almost certain that there should be many but with our limited rationality, we have discovered none yet.

Our earth, itself, under present condition of hostilities, is incapable of producing and distributing enough nutritious food to support its current population. Likely, it would be capable with proper cooperation of its inhabitants. However, it is now and almost always has been, incapable because of irrational religious belief which promote hostilities and wars among its residents — look at the world right this minute.

I believe that God created a deliberate plan of obsolescence for his entire universe which is so expansive no one can visualize it —we have no mental yardstick with which to compare it. It seems certain however, that each entity in this universe has a preplanned period of existence and material function. Even the mountains and grains of sand will eventually outlive their usefulness and come to their individual ends. That, of course, will take a very long time, but time means nothing to the Perfect Rationality which designed them in the first instance and, undoubtedly, has a plan for their demise. That Rationality exists in a state of eternity where there is no time.

How and when that time will come, no one knows for certain, but astrophysicists and cosmologists have suggested about seventy-five billion years from now. We do seem to know how the earth’s demise will come about. As a sun exhausts its hydrogen fuel supply, it gradually loses its internal gravity and begins to expand in diameter like a balloon being inflated. Our sun is predicted to realize its demise in about five billion years. On the way to its deathbed, it is predicted to expand to the point of engulfing the entire earth. Somewhere along the line, the earth will become uninhabitable to creatures of its current population – they could not survive the heat. So, quite obviously, most plants and animals living on the earth today will long since have become extinct — an exhibition of their planned obsolescence. However, what we don’t know, but which I strongly suspect, is other creatures more tolerant of extreme heat will have evolved and will be residents here. Since homo sapiens is a relative newcomer on earth (60-120,000 years), lots of things can come and go in a billion or two, or three years — wouldn’t you love to know what they will be like and what their intelligence levels will be? — I certainly would.

Scientists tell us the universe is expanding and its galaxies are moving away from each other in seeming defiance of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. However, Stephen Hawking suggested that possibly as they move, they are bending the space-time fabric of the universe, and, in reality, may be convoluting or bending the universe back on itself, in which case, Einstein’s Theory would still be in play — way too rich for my pea-sized intelligence. We do seem to know that each galaxy has a massive central black hole from which nothing can escape. It seems logical to assume that, since all quanta of energy were released from a singularity 13.7-8 billion years ago, God’s plan of obsolescence would mandate they return to a singularity — possibly through a process of black holes coalescing into one singularity — wish I knew.

I do not know anything for certain except this: with my definition of God’s essence as ‘A Perfect Rational Being’, there must be a perfect rationality to everything that has ever happened or ever will happen in this universe. All truth in this universe is contained in the perfect particles of energy of which everything in this universe is made and are collectively known as quanta. I believe, with no doubt, that they represent God in the real universe — they are God. All other gods and concepts of god are pure mythology. Therefore, all religion is mythology because all is based on a false concept of God. If you have doubts, please read my little books, Amazon-Kindle.

ESSENCE OF GOD — HILARY L HUNT MD

Please allow me to begin this writing by saying, “this may well be the most important document you will ever read in your life” — your attitude and attention count. I am allowed to say that for the following reason. The philosophical meaning of the word ‘essence’ is ‘a property or group of properties of something without which it has no meaning and does not exist’. In other words, something’s essence is that which gives it existence. Accidents, on the other hand, are the qualities something has which make it the specific ‘one of an essential kind’. Accidents do not affect the essence of anything. For instance, a table has the essence of ‘tableness’. Each table, however, has accidents which make it the specific ‘one of-a-kind’ which it is. So, you may ask what that has to do with the essence of God, and I will explain and elaborate post haste.

Before we explore God’s essence, we must consider God’s history. We know from earliest recorded human history that mankind, worldwide, has recognized a higher power or powers than themselves. They have ascribed all sorts of names and attributes to those powers in an attempt to understand the creation in which they lived. Some of those powers were male and some were female, and each had a specific name as well as specific powers and/or duties. Collectively, they were known as gods and goddesses.

Eventually, the Israelites came to know and understand ‘a one true God’ who was responsible for all creation and its activities. They surmised that they could talk to and bargain with their God. In addition, they wrote a history of the universe’s creation by their God including the creation of the first humans, Adam and Eve, their disobedience of God’s mandates resulting in their expulsions from Paradise, and their interaction with that God, whom they called Yahweh, up until the time of Jesus of Nazareth two thousand years ago. That history describes in detail their activities, trials, and tribulations and became known as The Old Testament of the Bible.

Simultaneously, in the Far East, the Hindus recognized their God and called him Brahma. Other Far-Easterners recognized Buddha as their Higher Power. Worldwide, every society ascribed different names, qualities, and attributes to their ‘Higher Powers’. Many of those societies, including the Israelites, concluded that their god had been offended by their actives and needed appeasement in the form of sacrifices. Most of those sacrifices involved animal and produce offerings but a few saw the need for human sacrifices — such was their imagination. In the New World, native tribes recognized a god in almost everything and had a specific name for each. Some South American tribes constructed magnificent edifices in honor of their gods.

Jesus came along and ridiculed the Jews for such ideation and activities. He tried desperately to get the Jewish people to understand that the ‘real God’ was Pure Love. The Jews had him crucified as a traitor for that teaching — he knew they would, but he was determined to liberate the world from ‘the blanket of guilt’ imposed by Judaism and the Mosaic Law.  After his death, all sorts of stories arose concerning what happened next. Multiple accounts tell different stories but the original account by John Mark, a companion of Paul, who wrote the first Gospel, says the Mary Magdalene came to Jesus’ tomb early the next morning, saw it was empty, and told no one. At least two ‘longer endings’ to Mark’s gospel were added by someone later. It seems to me that those later additions were made by people who were determined to have the Jewish concept of a Messiah who would ‘restore the kingdom’ just for them come to fruition.  — since he definitely had been killed, he had to resurrect, ascend into heaven, and come back to finish the job. I will justify and defend that position later in this paper. Paul thought that process was imminent – two thousand years and still waiting.

So, what happened next? We know that the Jewish concept of their God was dualist; that is, God was sitting in the clouds somewhere overlording and apart from his creation, but ready and willing to wreak havoc on anyone who offended him. Moses, in his determination to control his flock, had established a set of rules which constituted good civil law, but to give him more authority and assisted in his control over the people, he designated them as ‘offenses against God’. Jesus knew that God was perfect and could not be offended (hurt). He also knew and preached that God was not a ‘dualist’ God but, rather, God existed in all his creation. To my knowledge, Jesus was the first to profess such philosophy —Francis of Assisi was the next most notable to recognize and preach the same. Francis (please read his life’s history) had a great following and for that reason he was grudgingly ‘tolerated by the Church — The Catholic Church feared ‘mass exodus” if they excommunicated him, so they allowed him to form the Order of Friars Minor. Eventually he became the Abbot of that community and was canonized a saint after his death.

Several centuries after Jesus’ death Mohammed recognized Allah, and Islam was formed.

Throughout post-Jesus’ time many great thinkers, philosophers, and theologians, recognizing the miniscule understanding of God’s essence, spent their entire lifetimes attempting to understand and define God’s essence. They recognized that without an essential understanding of God’s nature, God was meaningless — an undefined myth. One of the most notable of those was a German Dominican monk and philosopher, Meister Eckert. He was a great teacher and thinker. He readily recognized that the miniscule, human-like concept of God held by the Catholic Church was terribly deficient. So, he spent his entire adult life attempting to define God’s essence. He expounded his philosophy along many avenues. Volumes of his works and conclusions were considered by the Church to be heretical, and as a result, the Inquisition was closing in on him — thankfully, he died a natural death before they could ‘burn him’.

 Despite all of Meister Eckert’s brilliance and determination, for one simple but overwhelming reason, he was never able to define God’s essence — he knew no science. He had no clue about the basic perfect makeup of the universe and the perfect nature of its creator. It would be nearly another three hundred years before Galileo would invent his telescope and proved the sun to be the center of our solar system, and not the earth as was taught by The Church to the point of being burned at the stake for non-believers. He, himself, was forced by the Inquisition to recant his findings in order to save his life – despite that recantation, he spent the last nine years of his life under ‘house arrest’. During that time, he established the groundwork for the physics of falling objects which was later defined conclusively by Sir Isaac Newton.

I am no great thinker, but I am a determined thinker. That determination reached a fever pitch at age twelve or so when I observed that absolutely nothing which I, my family, or our entire collective Catholic community, prayed for, ever came to fruition. In my day, questions about religion were scorned and not welcomed by church authorities — just shut up and do as you’re told. However, I had an ‘ace in the hole’. I was an altar boy and very close to our parish priest. Ten years earlier he had prevailed upon my mother to write the history of Fancy farm and Saint Jerome Church. In addition, I had a great rabbit and quail dog and would take Father Russell hunting often — we were buddies. Consequently, I had no qualms about questioning him about why God never answers our prayers.

His reply, “It’s God’s will”, hit me in the head like a lead ball. Even at that young age, I determined right then and there that if it was God’s will, all the praying we were doing was a total waste of time and energy — we were ‘barking up the wrong tree. I had no clue as to why that was true — I just knew it was by observation. But at that very moment, I determined that I would find out. All throughout my years of education, I kept my ‘philosophical ear to the ground’ listening for clues — then the big break came.

The week before graduating from the Jesuit owned and operated Saint Louis University School of Medicine in May 1958, I attended a mandatory retreat for all graduates at the White House, a Jesuit retreat venue situated on a beautiful bluff overlooking the Mississippi river about thirty miles of Saint Louis. The Retreat Master was a young, highly educated Jesuit priest. He covered many concepts of Catholicism specifically and religion in general. During the course of events, he was discussing the Trinity, and some of what he said caught the attention of me and two of my classmates. Accordingly, at intermission we asked him to expound on his philosophy. After vigorously cautioning us to tell no one where we heard it, he explained to us his concept of how the Trinity works.   He reasoned that God the Father reflects inward upon himself and sees a mirror image of himself. That image, being in the supernatural is a living being, the Son or second person of the Trinity. The perpetual love relationship of acceptance between the two carries the image of both and is the Holy Spirit, the Will of God.

 That definition stuck to me like a postage stamp, but it still did not define for me the essence of God.  It would be fifty years later that my endeavor for knowledge caused me to ‘cross paths’ with Quantum Mechanics or Particle Physics. I might diverge to explain that Classical Physics deals with objects and energies in the tangible physical world, whereas Particle physics deals with the intangible world of quanta. A quantum is the smallest particle of energy which cannot be further divided, and furthermore does not follow the laws of tangible physical objects. Collectively, those perfect particles of energy constitute the substrate for all physical objects. Each Quantum is perfect in form and function, is indistinguishable from its counterparts, is unchanging and unchangeably, and not one more or less is in existence than at the moment of their release 13.7-8 billion years ago. There I learned they were regulated by a ‘perfect rationality’, which is instilled into everything in this universe. All knowledge, which is truth, is contained in that perfect truth system of Perfect Particles. More importantly, that perfect truth system is made up of all the perfect particles of energy of which everything in this universe is made. That singular knowledge combined with the Jesuit priest’s description of the Trinity some fifty years earlier not only allowed but rather mandated my understanding of the essence of God and the Trinity.

Bingo! For the first time ever in the recorded history of mankind, our God’s essence could be defined in both philosophic and scientific terms: God is A Perfect Rational Being. That definition explainseverything. Not only does it explain everything, but more importantly, it delegitimizes all, known religion. There is not a singular religion of which I am aware that professes a God of Perfect Rationality.

So, once again let’s examine that concept. We must begin by examining ‘rationality’ — what is it? Simply stated, rationality implies an intellect which perceives and a will which achieves. So, our Perfect Rational God with his Perfect Intellect perceived all the perfect particles of energy which constitute everything in this universe. With his Perfect Will, the Holy Spirit, he said, “I Love that, I chose that, I will that, My Spirit drives that, I put my brand of approval on that”. At that instant all those perfect particles came into being and began doing perfectly what they were designed to do. At that moment time began. Protons and neutrons were immediately formed from some of those particles known as quarks, and hydrogen atoms were formed — the perfect ‘wheels of motion’ of our universe were put into motion and change which we measure in units of time was instituted. Scientists call that instant the Big Bang. Collectively, all those Perfect particles of energy represent a mirror reflection of the Perfect Intellect of God, and represent the Son, the second person of the Trinity.

The basic characteristics of those quanta of energy must be recognized: they are perfect in both form and function; they are indistinguishable one from another; not one more or less exists now than at the moment of the Big Bang; none is changing or changeable. Therefore, they exist in eternity, a state of no change, hence no time. In fact, they are God. The irony is that everything they constitute exists in a state of never-ending change. It seems obvious that God designed the universe with a perfect imbalance of energy called entropy. That imbalance ensures perpetual change in the gross universe so that everything in existence is here for a specific period of time. When that time (period of change) expires, the perfect particles which made it will be incorporated into something else ad infinitum until the universe balances itself and time expires — the physical world ends, but the Perfect Particle world of God persist in a singularity.

That ongoing change began 13.7-8 billion years ago and is predicted to last an additional 75 billion years. So, what conclusions can we draw? — an endless number. I will enumerate some here.

                1-God’s Spirit (Love), The Holy Spirit is imprinted onto each particle to maintain its perfection.

                2-God’s perfect nature is exhibited by each particle.

                3-Asking God to change his nature (Will) just for us is tantamount to blasphemy. God cannot                                        possibly change his Perfect Nature.

4-God’s Perfect Nature demands Perfect Love. Therefore, God cannot possibly reject anything

                he has created.

5-Concepts of pleasing God, hurting God, appeasing God, changing God’s mind are pure human

                speculation based on ignorance.

6-Since Gods Will; (Spirit) is imprinted onto each particle, it goes without saying that God resides

                In everything just, as Jesus, Francis of Assisi and others recognized.

7-Physical miracles such as virgin births, physical resurrections, physical ascensions and

                unnatural changes of any kind cannot possibly happen — God cannot possibly

                change his Perfect Rational Nature.

8-Everything we have been taught about God and religion of any kind is a bogus myth.

9-All the above is the sad, sad truth, but conversely, it is the liberating truth which Jesus taught.

10-At his last supper, Jesus explained one final time to his apostles that he, they, the

                food they ate and everything in existence were one in God.

10-Irrational, organized religion is responsible for most of the strife, turmoil, and discord

                the world has ever known.

11-Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the USA, and in my humble opinion, our absolute only justifiable prayer is a great big, ‘Thank you God for my existence, for my sustenance, and for my eternal existence in you”.

Sad to say, but so true; it is the truth that hurts. The entire world has been so duped by irrational religion.

SIN AND TRAITOR JESUS -HILARY L HUNT MD

 I will begin today by saying, it truly breaks my heart to have to write this message, but I know no other way out. I must write what I know to be scientific and philosophical truth — so here goes.

Without doubt, most of you reading this paper have been inculcated with the idea that Jesus was sent by God to shed his blood so our sins could be forgiven by his Father. As a matter of record, I have scoured the bible and biblical commentary and can find no direct quote from Jesus to that effect. 

Likewise, I can find no direct quote from any biblical writer stating explicitly why the Jews considered Jesus to be a traitor. What exactly was he teaching that infuriated them so? I can, however, find plenty of places where Jesus exhibits love and forgiveness, and I believe without doubt that single fact accounts for their hatred of him. Before we can interpret and understand that principle, we must consider the history of sin. Where and how did the basic concept of sin originate?

 Of course, we know that Original Sin, by which we all have been impaled, was caused by Adam and Eve disobeying God in the Garden of Eden. And then there was Sodom and Gomorrah, Noah’s Arc and the Great Flood, and other such stories in the Old Testament, but they all represent ‘after the fact’ punishments handed out by God for disobedience. But the question then is ‘when were specific sins against God necessitating sacrifices of appeasement in lieu of great punishment recognized?’

If you recall, you will note that, as the Israelites were wandering helplessly and hopelessly in the desert after their escape from Egypt, they became rebellious against their God — they lost faith and confidence in him. Accordingly, they became hedonistic and even reverted to worshiping pagan gods. That angered Moses, their leader. So, attempting to restore order and good behavior, he presented them with ten principles of good civil existence — that drew laughter and scorn. Accordingly, Moses presented them with a second identical set of directives. Only this time, he labeled them as ‘God’s commands’– any breeches were ‘sins’ against God and would be punished directly by God. At that moment, ‘sin’ was institutionalized, and the Israelites immediately and thereafter became enshrouded ‘in a blanket of guilt’ generated by their sins. 

 It should be noted that human beings have the same animal instincts and natural drives, including selfishness, as all other animal life. Those instinctual drives were instilled in all animal life for one specific reason, propagation of the species. Attempting to control people by making those instincts immoral is as fruitless as trying to burn water. However, when that attempt includes threats of direct punishment from God himself, a continual state of guilt accompanied by an equal degree of anxiety and fear is established and unavoidable.

Eventually, as time progressed and the Israelites settled into the Promised land, a hierarchy was established with specific duties for each position. Of course, the Israelites, being human, were guilty of breaking God’s laws on a repetitive basis. That required two solutions: one; restitution — an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and two; sacrificial appeasement of their offended God. Those sacrifices could only be made by the High Priest, and more importantly, had to, be ‘perfect’ sacrifices of ‘perfect specimens’. Just as importantly, only the High Priest could provide those perfect sacrificial specimens. Of course, the laity had to purchase those ‘perfect specimens’ from the High Priest at an extortionate price – very profitable, indeed – it still is. 

By the time Jesus arrived on the scene, the Jews were under Roman domination but were allowed to continue their religious practices as well as most of their legal system. The only real things Rome cared about were their slave-like productivity and civility. Jesus observed how the temple had been turned into a literal ‘den of thieves’. The High priest was making a triple fortune by selling his perfect offering specimens to the peasants at an exorbitant price. Sin necessitating appeasement of God had become a gimmick which Jesus simply could not stomach. In addition, he could clearly see how the Law was so unfair to women. 

I believe with my all that Jesus was the first human to recognize the presence of God’s spirit in everything. Recognizing the concept of sin to be a man-made concoction for profit, he knew that God could not possibly hate anything in which he dwelled — God knew no sin. Jesus’ God was perfect and could neither be please nor displeased. Neither could he be hurt or helped. God was/is All Love. 

Accordingly, when questioned about the greater of the Commandments, Jesus replied forcefully; “I’ll give you two commandments. One, you shall love your God with your all. Two, you shall love your neighbor as yourself” (paraphrased).  

That singular teaching negated literally all the Jewish law and, simultaneously, made Jesus a traitor. Jesus knew he would be crucified for his teaching, but he was determined to pull that terrible, persecuting blanket of ‘guilt’ off his fellow man and ‘liberate’ him once and for all from that psychological oppression of sin— such zeal has seldom if ever been witnessed before nor since. Jesus’ singular purpose was to be our liberator from the oppressive guilt-driving Jewish religion, not our savior from God’s wrath. Church history after his death shows clearly how miserably he failed. 

The Roman Catholic Church which Constantine commissioned in the year 325 totally ignored Jesus’ teaching in its formation. In Fact, it would be another eight hundred years before the concept that Jesus came to this earth to die in appeasement of the Father for mankind’s sin neared finalization. But even then, that appeasement was insufficient to ensure heaven— most certainly, we must ‘work our way into heaven’. More importantly, despite all that work, few would escape the cleansing fires of Purgatory. However, the Church had a plan to shorten that time — indulgences. In fact, at one point in time, Rome was selling ‘indulgences’ to those rich people who could afford them. They eagerly accepted — remember; “It is harder for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to get into heaven” — another money-making gimmick.  

Given the definition of God’s essence as, ‘God is a Perfect Rational Being’, I believe the following pertain: 

Every event of any kind in this universe is perfect in both form and function. 

Every event represents ‘God’s Perfection in action. 

Physical miracles are an impossibility — God cannot possibly change his own nature. 

Jesus was a genius but was a mere mortal man, born of natural parents, likely married, and with siblings. 

Jesus recognized ‘sin’ as a man-made concoction aimed at control and extorsion.  

Jesus recognized God’s presence and perfection in all things.  

Jesus recognized God’s Perfect Love (acceptance) of all his creation with no possibility of rejection of anyone or anything. 

Jesus recognized the hoax in the Jewish religion of ‘guilt and appeasement’ for financial gain. 

Jesus never said he came to die for the forgiveness if our sins. 

Jesus’ only teaching of note was ‘Love of God and love of neighbor’. 

The only purpose of Jesus’ teaching of God’s Love was to liberate humanity from the shroud of guilt. Only in that sense was he our savior. He died trying but he failed miserably because the Church which eventuated 300 years later totally ignored his teaching and went straight back to a Church of sacrificial appeasement of an angry God. Because it ignored Jesus’ foundational teaching of Love, that Church has since fragmented into 33,000 cults – little wonder. 

There has never been a power-generating, all-controlling, money-making machine as huge and successful as religion. It was that way in Jesus’ time, and it persists today. The irony is this; the one teaching of Jesus that got him killed, love of God and neighbor, has been totally ignored by Christianity which labors and expounds about God’s mercy which, of course, is distributed by religion in one way or another but always for a ‘pretty penny’ and always for the direct benefit of the distributors. 

 Come to think of it, I have not heard the words Purgatory or Indulgences mentioned in any pulpit in many years. I think I know why. The Church has recognized such teaching to be tantamount to witchcraft, and at its best, to be both totally scientifically and philosophically untenable. The Concept of Purgatory completely defies the concept of eternity in two spheres— time and change. Eternity is a state of being in which there is no time and therefore, no change, which is measured in increments of time, can occur. In addition, the concept of ‘buying your way into heaven is ludicrous — one can pay God for a spot in heaven? Really? I think not — my God is perfect, and no change is possible. 

If you would like to put order into this tangled mess of religion, you must read my book, Wilderness Cry. After reading it once, it is likely you will immediately want to read it again. Then, you will have a mandatory urge to delve into Peace in Spirituality and Provocative Catholic.

TURMOIL AND TIGHTROPES– HILARY L HUNT MD

As we plod along through our daily lives, we are being continually bombarded with threats to our happiness, our livelihood, our safety, and even our existence itself. We are being threatened from all sides by discord, disagreements, and hostilities of one kind or another, all of which make it difficult for us to lead relaxed, settled lives. Our TVs are spewing controversy after controversy on a twenty-four-hour-a-day basis.

 Much of that reporting describes wars and threats of wars which have far reaching implications for us all. Still more, they are describing rioting, looting and civil unrest, including gun violence and murder, besetting our cities here in the US on nearly a daily basis.

So, with that continual bombardment of unpleasantness and even threats to our lives, it seems logical to ask ourselves where all that unpleasantness and fear-generating activity comes from. What or who is responsible for the perpetual unrest and turmoil which seems to exist worldwide? The answer to that simple, straightforward question, at first glance, might seem involved and complicated. However, a simple perusal of world history from ancient to modern tells the same story.

Literally, from day one, someone, some clan, some king, some group, or some nation has been involved in hostilities toward its neighbors. In the beginning, many disputes evolved over presumed ‘territorial rights’. So, kings and clans alike were obliged to defend themselves and their territory. The obvious problem arose when their neighbors refused to honor those presumed territorial boundaries. Occasionally, negotiation succeeded, but not often — witness the Trojan Horse.

Later, colonization of one kind or another became the God-given right of nations —note the colonizing activity of European nations in the newly discovered West and the far East once they knew the ‘earth was round’ and not flat as had been assumed before. And who were responsible for the assumption that it was, not only justified but, basically mandated to ‘confiscate land from savages and Aboriginal people who were considered to be less than human? It was mainly the Kings and Queens of European nations. And just where did they obtain their authority? You guessed it — directly from the Pope. Not only that, but it was the Catholic Church and later literally all Protestant Churches who condoned slavery of black Africans who also were considered to be less than human.

So, here we are today, a nation beset by rebellious black Americans who for suitable reasons have felt disenfranchised and, thereby, feel it to be their God-given right to shower that anger and frustration on the basically ’white’ American community who brought them here as mere animals. Mind you, not one of us white people alive today had anything to do with that atrocious activity but, guess what, we are guilty by inheritance. We inherited that gut-wrenching ‘Original Sin’ which all Christianity clings to. Only this ‘Original Sin” is the sin of Christianity better known as racism. It was the Popes and later all religions who sanctioned and encouraged that atrocious activity —and they have the audacity to call themselves ‘holy’. I may be deafer than my wife asserts, but I have never heard one word of apology or remorse from any pulpit either in my church or on TV by so-called evangelists.

Of note, regarding Colonialism, is the recent discovery of a Spanish galleon sunk off the coast of Columbia in the early 1700’s. It reportedly contains $ 17 billion worth of gold and silver. Can you imagine the clamor over ownership claims and their attendant lawsuits to come?

The net result is this; it is religion which is responsible for all the world’s strife and discord. From day one of recorded history, the known inhabitants of this earth have been squabbling and fighting in defense if their god(s). Oh, there have been periods of near tranquility from time to time worldwide, but those periods were almost always short-lived. As established religions fragmented into various factions, disharmony and bickering ensued as each unit attempted to proselytize the other’s constituents. While interreligious squabbles are a little more civil today, a silent undercurrent continues — a smug self-righteousness persists everywhere one looks.

Once upon a time, the Catholic Church despised Judaism—I was taught in Catholic Catechism class in the 1940’s that Jews were evil people. However, with the rise of hostile Islam, a sudden coziness developed between Judaism and all Christianity. The net result is a wall of hostility between Theocratic Islam and Judeo-Christianity— strange bedfellows. In fact, the radical Islamist have declared everyone else to be infidels which mandates their extermination and, of course, with that religious profession, peace is not possible.

So, worldwide, here we are embroiled in conflict and turmoil, almost all of which can be traced directly to religion and/or ideology which is basically religion without a god. The next question then is why are there so many religions? — 33,000 Christian factions alone? The answer to that question is very simple. Almost from the time of Moses onward, the ‘God-given’ power bestowed by religion has been the best means of control and money extraction the world has ever known. Furthermore, not one of those religions is willing to relinquish that control and, thereby forsake its wealth. The simple truth is this, not a single one of those religions is justified or legitimate because, none of them can define the essence of the god it worships — they all worship a mythical god. If they would define the essence of their god irrefutably, as I have, their purpose would be instantly nullified.

Because they refuse to honor the legitimate definition of God’s essence, Religions, especially Roman Catholicism, are walking a perpetual tightrope of deceit by pretending their atrocities did not happen. They succeed only through the ignorance and apathy of their constituents. Almost all children are brainwashed from very early childhood in the tenants of some religion or another. Consequently, they find little cause to question the validity of those teachings. Those who do question are typically ignored or scorned — the beat goes on uninterrupted. Years ago, I found myself questioning many things, the most important of which was the very essence of the God we worship. To my amazement, I discovered that no one had ever defined that essence. It took me 65 or so years of research and study before I was able to do so.

God is a Perfect Rational Being, period. That definition of God’s essence nullifies all known religion. Not only that, but it, mandates Jesus’ command for us all to Love (accept) God with our all, and to love (accept) our neighbor as ourselves. Accordingly, our only justifiable prayer is an expression of gratitude to God; thank you God for my life, my sustenance, and my eternal life with you. Mind you, God is Perfect and cannot be pleased or displeased. Therefore, he expects nothing. However, that prayer would ingrain in us a vein of humility and gratitude and help us be ever aware of God’s Perfect Love.

Then and only then will there ever be peace. That understanding and attitude must be promulgated worldwide so we all may become like-minded. If we are like-minded, we have no major differences. With that in mind, four years ago, I called for the Worldwide Communion of Spirituality which means the understanding and acceptance that the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, the Will of God is imprinted onto every perfect particle of energy of which every gravid object in the universe is composed. Therefore, everything in existence has a communion (commonality) with and in God.

That understanding negates and nullifies all cultist religions worldwide. More importantly, with that understanding and acceptance, Peace would break out immediately and persist forever.

NB: please don’t hold your breath. Remember, power, control and money are intoxicating —all religions are drunk on them and are in no mood to sober up—likely, they never will.

However, never is a long time but it means nothing to God because he is Perfect and never changing in eternity. Dreadfully, it is likely that, sooner or later, some mad (irrational) person will ‘push the red button’ just for the thrill and will trigger a nuclear outburst sufficient to wipe out every living entity on this earth. Possibly, some withered blade of grass or some animal entity will survive but will be so genetically altered as to be unrecognizable. As it survives and mutates, a ‘new intelligence’ may emerge and, over a period of thousands or millions of years come to a rational understanding of its God and neighbors. That would be an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ scenario indeed but because it transpires within the Perfect Rationality of God, it is possible.

I have often noted that everything possible to happen in our universe will eventually happen, and always in perfect fashion.  If it can hang, it will and must hang—God’s Perfection at work. Remember, dinosaurs roamed this earth 252-66 million years ago. The oldest recorded human history so far discovered are Egyptian hieroglyphics believed to be made 3400 BC. So, humanity is a relative newcomer on this planet but, ironically, has already developed the technology to destroy it. Of course, that technology represents a mere ‘scratch’ on the surface of God’s giant ball of Perfect Knowledge.

I have written extensively about all these matters in my three books and in my 350 WordPress blogs. In Wilderness Cry I show conclusively how I was able to define the ever elusive ‘essence of God’. That definition is possible only through the knowledge and understanding of the basic particulate makeup of the entire universe; God is a Perfect Rational Being. In Peace in Spirituality and ProvocativeCatholic, I explore many of God’s essential attributes, all of which nullify and revoke the legitimacy of all known religions – all are cultist hoaxes because none knows or will admit to our real God of Perfect Truth.

SKILLFUL DECEIT — HILARY L HUNT MD

Have you ever been deceived? I have many times. And it’s always irritating to discover the deceit, but often, more irritating to learn the reason behind it. Whatever the reason, the deceiver wants you to believe something that is untrue.

Politicians routinely lie to us as though we were kindergarteners, and in truth, many of us fit that mold nicely — so they succeed — we lose much of the time, but not always. Here’s the hooker –they give us a little taste of something good while simultaneously ‘stabbing us in the back’ with things very distasteful and undesirable. Very likely, we all have experienced such deceitful betrayal.

It happens in all walks of life and in all situations — someone attempting to deceive us for their own personal gain. That gain may pertain to an individual, a group, an organization, or a government. The net result is the same –someone, some group, some organization, or some government deceiving or attempting deceit of us for their own gain which very often translates into control over us.

The deceit I wish to address today is the subtle belying the Roman Catholic Church imposes on its unsuspecting constituents. I dare say, that unless people have taken the time to research and study history, they would not know that the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, Vatican City, is a Church State with the Pope as its institutional head — a Theocratic State just as Iran. Unlike Iran, it has no military — it depends on God for its protection –It took a lot of ‘knee bending’ by Pope Pius X11 to Hitler during WW2 to save its hide –it succeeded. After all, Hitler considered himself to be a ‘god’ of sorts.

The bottom line is this; all religion worldwide is based on mythology, astrology, superstition, and witchcraft all of which were based on mankind’s imagination. Of course, with no scientific understanding at all, they did the best they could, but mind you, mostly under a blanket of deceit for their own personal and/or tribal gain.

So, as we go through history, we see how the Egyptians were the first recorded group to recognize gods and goddesses. They understood that there must be ‘higher powers’ than themselves controlling things; so, they gave them names –many, many names. They connected the dots between stars and created the Zodiac. Later, the Israelites came to recognize a singular God who was in charge of everything. However, famine forced them into ensnarement by the Egyptians for forty years. While there, they learned about Baptism and seemingly adopted it into their daily lives. This explains why John Mark, who wrote the first Gospel, seems to casually mention that John was baptizing in the Jordan when Jesus walked by — likely an everyday routine.

You will recall that Jesus appeared, he ‘took extreme issue with the Israelite King, High priest, and Sanhedrin’ about their god and how he was to be recognized and revered. The Jewish hierarchy didn’t appreciate Jesus’ exposing their deceit one bit — so, they hung him on a tree for the whole world to see. So, guess what, 325 years later, those ‘bishops?’ who formed the Holy Roman Catholic Church, used the exact Jewish model of deceit which Jesus exposed, and which got him killed 2000 years ago — the lie goes on.

It’s all about power, control, and money. It was then — it still is.

Now to the ‘point at hand’. Recognizing that all religion was formed, cultivated, and propagated through ignorance, astrology, superstition, tradition, witchcraft, and mythology, it seems very obvious that, as people become more educated, they see through the bogus pretexts of all religions and cease attendance at their services. That translates into ‘loss of income’. So, the Catholic Church has continued resorting to its skillful process of deceitful pretension by gently ‘sweeping their astrology, mythology, and ignorance under the rug’ as though it never happened.

A ‘case in point is the Eucharistic prayer’ said by Catholic priests at the offertory of the mass. For as long as I can remember until about twenty years or so ago, the Eucharistic prayer always contained this statement, “From age to age you gather a people unto yourself so that from east to west a perfect offering may be made to the glory of your name.” About twenty years ago, I began noticing how the Eucharistic prayer was changed to read, “From the rising of the sun to its setting, you gather a people to yourself so that a perfect offering may be made……”. Just recently, I noticed the subtle but distinct change in the prayer saying, “From the rising of the son to its setting, you gather a people to yourself so that a pure offering may be made ……”.

To the casual and unconcerned observer, those changes would not be noticed, but if they were noticed, likely, they would have no specific significance — most aren’t paying attention to the monotonous repetition anyway. But I believe without doubt they represent the Church’s sly attempt to bury their astrological, Zodiacal and mythological origin. The “age to age” stems from and refers directly to the Zodiac ages which are derivatives of astrology. The “perfect offering” is a direct hold-over correlation to the Jewish High Priests making a fortune with his ‘perfect offerings’ — Jesus despised such and even overturned the money changer’s tables — that ‘last straw’ got him arrested and crucified.

I have observed and pointed out many, many times such sly attempts by the Church to disassociate itself from its astrological and mythical foundations and pretend its foundation has always rested in science which is truth. The Church knows that only the keenly observant old folks such as I will know the difference. They also know that we will soon be gone, and our knowledge and concern will be gone with us. The younger set are only vaguely interested in what’s going on now and have little or no curiosity to study and know how things used to be.

The saddest thing rests in the fact that Jesus’s teaching of love was completely ignored by the framers of Christianity. As a result, millions of people have been tormented and killed by an illegitimate institution which never should have been in the first place. Hundreds of thousands were burned to death by the Inquisitions. Hundreds of thousands more have commit suicide because of guilt and depression generated by religion. Billions more have been tormented by the Church’s restrictions on sex, the most normal natural instinct instilled in us by God. It was used as a tool of control by imposing a fear of damnation into hell forever. All that has long since been buried by the Church. Devorce, birth control, and even abortion is condoned now, seemingly by skillful neglect of the Church hierarchy — I haven’t heard the word abortion mentioned from a pulpit in twenty years or more. I think I know why — there seems to be a collusion between Rome and the Catholic White House. Millions of illegal immigrants, mostly Roman Catholic, are streaming across our southern border basically uncontested and mostly unconstrained. Of course, the White House is extremely pro-abortion.

The fact remains that officially, none of the Catholic Church rules have changed but, few are enforced. Shortly after Pope Francis was elected, there was a lot of open controversy in the Church pertaining to sex related matters. In order to squelch adverse public opinion of the Church generated by this controversy, Pope Francis was prompted to say, “None of the rules have changed. Weve just got to stop talking about them (paraphrased)”. The meaning there seemed to me to be quite clear — no talk, no notice — the old folks who do notice will soon be dead and the indifferent young folks won’t care — soon the understanding will be, ‘it’s always been this way’– subtle deceit.

Of course, most people would consider those changes desirable, humane, and mandatory. Why haven’t they always been that way? After all, the Church set itself up to be the ‘almighty authority’ with indisputable Magisterium. From my perspective, that answer is obvious — power, control, money. The power comes from their self-proclaimed almighty authority. The control stems from use of the best tool ever, restrictions on sex and fear of damnation into hell forever for violation of those restrictions (Church Laws). The money comes from the sheer numbers of the flock — no legitimate birth control — the babies keep coming. That old dog won’t hunt any more. Young people are ignoring those rules and quitting the Church. So, the Church has to pretend that the ‘rules do not exist’ — we just got to stop talking about them.

I am aware that many of my readers are not Catholic and would not necessarily know of these Church laws. However, any of you older non-Catholics who have been involved in mixed marriages with Catholic partners, know the wedding was not allowed inside a Catholic church building. Additionally, the non-Catholic partner had to agree for all children to be raised Catholic. My research indicates it was not until the late 1950’s that the Church reluctantly began allowing mixed Christian marriages inside both Catholic and Protestant Church buildings. I am also aware that now, marriages of all mixes are taking place at all sorts of venues other than the bride’s home Catholic church building.

Gordon Rattray Taylor, in his thorough book, Sex in History, relates that, in early Catholic Church history, weddings inside a Catholic Church building were strictly prohibited. The reason being that sex smells emanating from the bride would attract too many devils and thereby, irretrievably contaminate the Church building — such ignorance and stupidity. Weddings were presided over by a priest but were held at the Church door or in the Church courtyard. I might add that every religion of any type or variety is based on such ignorance and superstition– witness the ‘Salem witch trials’ in this nation’s early history.

There is a sanity in this universe and people, while they may not know its exact location, are gradually drifting away from irrational religion and unwittingly, are migrating toward that sanity. You will definitely make that trek to rational understanding much simpler and more straightforward by reading my little book Wilderness Cry – A scientific and philosophical approach to understanding God and the universe. You will definitely want to read its sequel, Provocative Catholic. A precursor to Provocative Catholic is Peace in Spirituality. All are written by me, who was raised in Fancy Farm Kentucky, a %100 Catholic community at that time. I had nineteen years of Catholic education and was very versed in the tenants of the Church. I believe you will thoroughly enjoy my little semi historical, semi auto bibliographical book, Growing Up in Fanch Farm Kentucky. All are available Amazon-Kindle and from me — handg@comcast.net.

TRUST — HILARY L HUNT MD

The word trust has various meanings depending upon the intention of the user. For instance, we may speak of a ‘bank trust’, a ‘trust bank’, ‘an estate planning trust’, etc. The ‘trust’ I wish to address today is ‘a firm belief in the ability, reliability, truth, or strength of something or someone’. Daily, our lives are built on trust in literally hundreds, thousands, or even millions of ways, and most of those are dictated by previous learned experiences. For instance, I doubt there is a sane person in existence who doesn’t trust the sun to rise in the morning and set in the evening. Likewise, little children raised in a secure environment, trust their parents will provide them with food, clothing, and shelter. Until we learn better by cold, hard experience, we trust people to speak truth to us as best they understand truth — no deliberate lies.

As little children, we soon learn the difference between a fantasy ‘fairy tale’ and basic truth. Fairy tales, in general, are used to tickle the imagination and curiosity of a little child while simultaneously holding his/her attention. As they learn more truths, they soon realize the untruth in a fairy tale — Santa Claus.

Now, the trust I wish to address today concerns religion and it’s absolute and complete failure in espousing truth. We know from history how throughout the ages homo sapiens has universally recognized higher powers than themselves. Universally, while knowing almost no scientific fact, they steadfastly ascribed names, sex, and duties to each of them. There was a god or goddess for literally every known function. We also know from biblical history that some ten thousand years after the beginning of recorded history, the Hebrews recognized a singular god who was, not only in control of everything, but also, the creator of everything in existence. In their ignorance, they assumed the earth to be the center of god’s creation. Not only that, but they were certain that they and the earth were god’s only ‘real concern’ with his creation — no lack of self-righteousness there. Factually, all they had to go on was their imagination coupled with developed myths and superstition. They did have one ‘factually reliable truth’ — the sun rose and set every day.

Instead of ascribing certain aspects of their existence to other gods and goddesses as their ancestors and neighbors had done and were still doing, they surmised that the stars had significant influence on themselves — a little Egyptian astrology and the Zodiac wouldn’t hurt. We know from ‘biblical history that they got deeply entangled with the Egyptians for forty years due to a great famine — they learned about baptism, astrology, Zodiacal influences, and even ‘trinity god’. It was only after their escape, and while wandering haplessly in the desert, they learned about a wrathful, vengeful god— Moses’ weapon — sin and sacrificial appeasement of that angry god were invented— so also the weapons of power, control, and fleecing of money —they’re called sin and religion.

So, let’s fast-forward a few thousand years till Jesus’ time. The Jews had been under Roman control for several decades. The Jewish peasants had been hit with a double whammy — bilking by the High Priest for his ‘perfect offerings’ while, simultaneously sharing what little they had left with Rome. Aslan, in his very astute book, Zealot, shows that in Jesus’ time, Judea was rampant with insurrectionists going about ‘performing miracles’ (slight-of-hand magic) in an attempt to recruit an army for purpose of overthrowing both The Hebrew King and the Roman Emperor. They all met the same fate— crucifixion displayed to travelers at Golgotha. They were, in fact, traitors —crucifixion was reserved strictly for traitors — everyone knew that. Their suppression by both Rome and their King was so unbearable, they risked it anyway.

Even though Jesus was not attempting to recruit an insurrection army, he was doing something many times worse —he was attempting to eliminate the false religion of the Jews. He knew he would be killed —his zeal was so strong. He wanted the world to know once and for all that God is ‘all love’—not a vengeful, wrathful, unaccepting god. Jesus was determined to pull the blanket of guilt off the entire human race by telling them who God is. He knew he would be killed but he was depending on his twelve apostle and many, many disciples to spreads his word worldwide — unbelievably, he was and still is a total failure.

Those who wrote the New Testament were so determined to have their ‘childhood fairy tales ‘of a new paradise here on earth just for themselves come true that, after Jesus’ death, they fabricated all sorts of ‘Alice in Wonderland ‘tales about his miracles, both before and after his death —Virgin birth, Star of Bethlehem, Angle Apparitions, Resurrection, Ascension, God speaking from clouds, etc. One need not be a genius to put Luke’s and Matthew’s versions of Jesus’ birth side by side and immediately note major, irrefutable differences. Luke says Joseph and Mary took Jesus directly back to Nazareth after the days of purification. Mathew, on the other hand, exposing his bias for astrology, paints a picture of astrologers — Magi — Wise Men being led by Jesus’ star with the resultant slaughter of the innocents by Herod, and Mary and Joseph fleeing to the desert with Jesus, likely into Egypt, for twelve years before finding it safe to return home.

Christianity has an entire ritualistic period of worship and understanding based on Matthew’s ‘fairy tale’. I ask you one simple, straight-forward question. Whom do you trust and what are your sound logical reason for any trust in such fairy tales?

The Old and New Testaments each are rife with fairy tale miracles attributable to God. In my humble estimation and understanding, Jesus’ attempt to educate the world about a ‘Perfect, all Loving God’ is literally the only thing worthy of note in either Old or knew Testament. However, as I have stated innumerable times, the bible we now have to reference has been rewritten and altered so many times, we simply cannot know what was originally said. As we read each writer’s accounts of Jesus’ life, we see how each writer ‘flavors’ that account to hos own wishes or expectations, and imagination. However, none seem to be willing to give up on the idea of a ‘new paradise’ here on earth just for themselves – Jesus had to come back and do that just for them —such was their determination to make God’s Old Testament promise to them to ‘Restore the Kingdom’ come true.

I believe without doubt, that singular Santa Clause fairy tale has caused all the world’s strife. Hindus and Buddhists never accepted it; Muslims rejected it; Christians fragmented it to the tune of at least 33,000 versions. Mind you, not one of any of the world’s religious sects, accepted Jesus only meaningful teaching—God is all love and we, in turn, must be all love.

The ‘money machine and control device’ of religion which Moses and the Jewish hierarchy created were way too precious to allow peace and harmony through accepting Jesus’ commands of love get in the way. So, the world remains in perpetual turmoil with more wars and threats of wars. Those threats are much more serious now that we have weapons of mass destruction.

It is through science that we have learned more about God’s Perfect Truth and his Perfect Truth System. Through my exposure to Quantum Mechanics (particle physics), I attained a glimpse into God’s real nature. Through that encounter, I was able to instantly define God’s Essence:  God is a Perfect Rational being. God’s Perfect Rationality pervades every existence, otherwise, nothing could be.

 We soon discovered that the understanding of God’s Perfect Truth allowed us to create and manufacture weapons of mass destruction which, used improperly, could wipe out every living thing on this earth. Conversely, we know that same identical knowledge can and is used for wonderful peaceful purposes of generating electricity, treating many different diseases, and a myriad of other beneficial purposes.

Very subtly, religion has taught humanity to be competitive—remember, you’re competing for ‘a higher place in heaven’. Believing such nonsense shows how ignorant we are and how arrogant and distrustful religion is for propagating such a lie. Consider this; if religion acknowledged God’s essence, all of them would instantly become superfluous, useless, nonessential, and proven erroneous. None will acknowledge it because of one, simple, greedy, principle —power, control, and money. Collectively, religions are the biggest money-making machine the world has ever known.

So, with that knowledge and understanding, whom can you trust? It broke my heart to discover the religion I was raised in, and all other religions were a complete hoax. I can legitimately say that because none of them can define the essence of their God — without an essential definition, nothing has meaning.

 And many of my acquaintances ask me, “why do you still go to church?”. And I give them each the same concrete, straight forward answer. I go and take the bread in open recognition that I am in communion (have commonality) with every gravid entity in God’s universe.

 Jesus, Francis of Assisi, and Meister Eckert are others before me who had taught that same recognition. Jesus was crucified for saying it; Saint Francis had such a following, that the Church grudgingly tolerated him; Meister Eckert was pronounced to be a heretic by the Inquisition but, thankfully, he died of natural causes before he could be burned at the stake.

If you are satisfied with living under a blanket of guilt, or if you have been led to smugly believe that you are saved while others are not, or if you have been led to believe that only your set of believers will enter heaven, then so be it. I am here to tell you, “It makes no difference”— God loves each of us and everything in his created domain equally—all are of God’s substance. Can God reject himself? I don’t think so.

Given that understanding, I have one trust only and it is in my Perfect Rational Being—God.

Created with GIMP

I pondered, mulled over, and ground on those ideas for seventy years before the ‘lights finally came on’ and I was at last able to comprehend and define in irrefutable terms the essence of the God I worshiped. It has been six years since I published my thesis in a little book titled Wilderness Cry and, even though it is distributed worldwide, no one has come forward to argue with me — no one can. Since publishing Wilderness Cry, I have published two more books which outline and explain obvious derivatives of God’s essence —his Perfect Rationality. They are Peace in Spirituality and Provocative Catholic.  In addition, I have published a semi historical, semibiographical little book, Growing Up in Fancy Farm Kentucky. All are available from me and Amazon-Kindle.

HISTORY OF BAPTISM — HILARY L HUNT MD

A cursory review of ancient history will reveal that baptism, as a form of ritual cleansing and purification, was practiced by literally all cultures in ancient times, including Hindus. It seems that, likely, the Egyptians were the earliest to employ it. A ritual washing in the waters of the Nile River was a surefire means of obtaining closeness to and favor of the gods. In fact, one account shows that drowning in the Nile or submersion of a corpse in its waters was a certain means of restoring life with their gods in the afterlife.

I can find no reference to Jewish baptism prior to Moses. You will recall that the Israelites were enslaved by the Egyptians for forty years. Undoubtedly, during those forty years they adopted the Egyptian custom of baptism­ – hence it’s appearance in Mosaic law and its continuance till the time of John the Baptist. However, John’s baptism was a ritual cleansing of repentance.

Most Christians are taught to believe that Jesus, by his submission to baptism by John, gave sanctifying significance to the event – hence we have the ‘sacrament of Baptism’ in many Christian religions.

Now, let’s consider the plain, simple facts. Jesus was a Jewish male aged thirty-three. Number one, it would be unthinkable for a Jewish male of his age not to be married. Number two, it would be just as unthinkable for him not to have been baptized – maybe many times before — after all, it was a ritual purification. The bible writers glorified John’s baptism of Jesus by having God speak directly from the clouds to a local audience verifying his pleasure with the event and certifying Jesus as his only Son.

 I have shown many, many times that all those ‘miracles’ are impossible because God would have to ‘change his nature from that of ‘a perfect rational being’ to a nilly-willy overlord who acted like a drunken sailor and could not be trusted under any circumstance – not a chance. In my humble opinion all that represents the mythological, astrological, superstitious ignorance of those writers who were determined to have their vision (version) of religion come true. As I have noted many times before, we simply do not and cannot know what the original writers said. The versions of the bible we have now represent the writing and rewriting ad nauseum of a single copy which was made from possibly thousands of recopies. It was the only surviving copy and was made two hundred-plus years after the original.

We can and should be very suspicious of all accounts from any current bible. That justification stems from the known fact that three hundred years after Jesus’ death, the Jews remained under Roman control. Rome, as it was in Jesus’ day, still allowed the Jews and their newfound Christian religions to be self-governed concerning their religion(s). The only thing Rome cared about was their productivity. By the year 325 AD, there were 1800 so-called bishops in the Christian domain of Rome. A bishop was the most prominent person in his community. Each Bishop had his own ideas about Jesus – what he said, and what he did, and what he meant. Hardly any two of them agreed with any others. Therefore, they were squabbling and infighting among themselves. They became so involved in their differences that their productivity diminished noticeably. Emperor Constantine became alarmed by their lack of production. His coffers were already depleted by all the wars he had been fighting. At that time, the official Roman religion was a pagan religion known as Mithraism. Constantine reasoned it would be wiser to make Christianity the official religion of the Empire, rather than further deplete his treasury and resources by trying to coerce the squabbling Christians into productivity.

Accordingly, he called a conference at Nicaea of the so-called Christian bishops. All eighteen hundred bishops were invited but only about three hundred attended. They squabbled among themselves from May till August before a consensus was reached. Some dissidents were excommunicated. Some accounts say some were beheaded. Thus, Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire, and it had full support and protection of the Roman army. Any dissidents had two choices: beheading on the spot or banishment into the wilds.

The religion so formed represented the collective wishes of the consensus attendees. More importantly, it put each of them into positions of high power and influence. So, it is unthinkable that they would not have patterned their newfound Christian religion exactly after the lucrative father-religion, the Jewish religion – sacrifice and all. Only, this time the sacrifice was to be unbloody (they didn’t want all that mess). They devised a plan of actually recreating Jesus out of bread and wine, and then offering him to the Father in an unbloody sacrificial way – the Catholic mass was instituted.

Of course, baptism became the rite of initiation into the newformed church. Anyone not baptized could not enter heaven. Even though one might have led a holy life, if not baptized, he was relegated to a place in eternity known as ‘limbo’. When I was a child studying and learning Catholic catechism, I was taught that early infant baptism was imperative so that a newborn baby might not die and be committed to Limbo forever. Later, as a medical student and medical doctor delivering babies in a Catholic institution, Saint Louis University, that same urgency was instilled in me. I was to immediately baptize any newborn who might appear unlikely to survive the usual seven days allowed before average infant baptism. It is a curious thing that I haven’t heard the word Limbo mentioned from any pulpit in the last 40-50 years. Curious too, I have heard no protest from any pulpit about parents waiting two years or longer to have their child baptized – think I know why – it’s called alienation – don’t lose any prospects at any cost – to hell with limbo.

The Church gets away with this dictatorial overlording in a sly and cunning way. They know young people growing up don’t know the difference – they never heard of limbo, And the Church knows the old dudes like me who do know and who do remember will soon be gone. So, it’s conveniently ‘swept under the carpet’ as though it never happened.

It’s not only happened with limbo’ it’s happening with nearly all the Church’s dictatorial, controlling rules, the breach of which would send one straight to hell or limbo. Again, I think I know why – it’s called ‘money honey’. People are dropping out of religion like dead flies falling off a wall. The dastardliest observation yet is the Church’s occult stance on abortion. The Church has gone from absolute prohibition against artificial birth control of any kind to overtly condoning the vilest of birth control devices or techniques,  abortion.

Not only has the Pope given his blessing to the two biggest proponents of abortion in this country, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi, both of whom profess to be Catholic, but now he has made a pro-abortionist bishop in California a Cardinal of the Catholic Church. Again, I think I know why – it’s called ‘money-honey’. It is intended to stem the outflow of young nonconformists from the church. Such hypocrisy, I have never witnessed in my lifetime of nearly 89 years – but the youngsters will never know the difference –another ‘sweep it under the rug’ deal.

So, to sum it all up in one neat little package – it only has value if it benefits the money flow of the Church – to hell with morality. And might I quickly add, I seriously doubt that my observations, or at least similar ones, are not applicable in most other churches besides the Catholic Church.

COLLUSION–HILARY L HUNT MD

Collusion may be defined as a conspiracy between people or groups to cheat or otherwise deceive others under the guise of authenticity. You may be wondering what my interest in that subject is. Well, I believe, without doubt, we are witnessing a major collusion between two governments which is both grossly illegal and hypocritical. I am referring to the massive illegal entry of migrants through our southern border and the hypocritical actions of Pope Francis in, not only blessing, but also giving communion to two of the highest officials in the United States government. Those two officials, our President and Speaker of the House openly profess to be Roman Catholic while simultaneously pushing one of the gravest sins a Catholic can commit – abortion.

I’ll guarantee you, if any one of us peons were to do so, we would be severely ostracized and likely excommunicated from the Church if we persisted in such activity. However, our top officials are allowed to do so with impunity – there is a reason.

It is a known fact that attendance at all religious services in the USA has steadily dropped during the last fifty years, and Catholic services have not been exempted from that drop. It is also a known fact that most of those illegal immigrants crossing our border are from Central and South America and are Catholic – at least in name. I see a two-fold intent here. One is to bolster the Catholic church-going numbers with the hope for eventual financial gain for the Church. The other is the belief that those immigrants will vote, legally or illegally, Democrat. In addition, no doubt, our President, and Speaker believe and hope that by gaining the Pope’s blessing, many would-be Catholic Republican voters would feel inclined to vote Democrat—ultimate hypocrisy and deceit.

Some time ago, maybe two or three years, I read a speech given by Pope Francis regarding immigration. I regret that I cannot recall the specific place and date, but I do remember well what he said. Paraphrasing, he said he dreamed of the day when the world would be borderless. That sent shock waves through me. Anyone with the meagerest historical understanding remembers when basically all the western world was Catholic, and the Pope was supreme ruler of all. He marched the kings of Europe around like they were five-year-olds. Remember how he ordered them to war during the Crusades? – he even led some of the Crusades himself. You don’t suppose those grandiose ideas are resurfacing in Pope Francis’ ego, do you? – I suspect so.

For you non-Catholics and younger Catholics who do not know Church history, prior to a few short years ago, every deviation from strict Church law was a mortal sin and would send you straight to hell if you died before confessing that sin. For instance, a divorced person could not remarry in the Church without obtaining an annulment – that process took a minimum of two years in the Dioceses of Owensboro, Kentucky. In the meantime, if one remarried before that annulment was obtained, that person was not allowed to receive communion. Also, artificial birth control in any form was strictly prohibited – the dastardliest of all was abortion. I have not heard either of those words uttered from any Catholic pulpit in thirty to forty years – I think I know why – it’s called money.

The Church has become keenly aware that their strict laws concerning anything sexual have led to a mass dropout of members. Those laws were made in the first place to control people. As young people have become more educated and intuitive, they are finding restrictive religion irrelevant. They know God is Love, and not a vengeful dictator – so they quit. The Church Empire is slowly crumbling. If you have read my little book, Wilderness Cry, you know I have predicted the total demise of so-called Christianity in one hundred to five hundred years depending on the outcome of inevitable future wars. If Christianity were based on Jesus’ real teaching of love of God and neighbor, likely everyone in the world would eventually be Christian. But that would require an abrupt change of course for all so-called Christianity. ‘It isn’t going to happen’ – too much loss of money, power, control – to hell with love and acceptance.

What is going on now may be likened to smearing horse manure in our faces and telling us it both smells and tastes good – eat up and be happy simpletons.

If you have not read my little book, Wilderness Cry, and its sequels, Peace in Spirituality, and Provocative Catholic, please do so for your better understanding and peace of mind – you’ll never regret it. It will open your eyes to a different world of love rather than ‘guilt and control’. For a better understanding of me, you may like my little book, Growing up in Fancy Farm Kentucky.

GENDER–HILARY L HUNT MD

Today I will address the subject of gender in both its broadest sense and in its essential sense. Concerning that ‘broadest sense’; in today’s world, gender has come to be known as the sexual preference people may feel regardless of their specific genital identity of female or male. Thus, we have an entire group of varied sexual identities who have become collectively known as the ‘LGBT’ community. So, even though those individuals may have specific genitals dictating a specific sex, they have a sexual preference different from the strict heterosexual group.

According to a recent poll published in 2021, % 5.6 of the population identify themselves as one or another of the LGBT group. Most of those individuals identify themselves as either Lesbian, Gay, or Bisexual, while only % 0 .3 identify as Transgender. That means % 94.4 identify themselves as heterosexual.

If then, we wished to measure the intensity of everyone’s sex drive or urge, we would likely find such drive intensity fits nicely on a classic bell-shaped distribution curve. % 66.67 % would form the apex and shoulders of the bell while the other % 33.3 would be evenly divided on either side from weakest on one side to strongest on the other side tapering to % 0.0 while forming the steep drop-off of the bell’s sides and curving outward to the flare of the bell-shaped graph.

We know from observation that such distribution occurs with almost everything material in this universe. For instance, the size of all the known stars from largest to smallest would likely fit that curved graph very nicely. Likewise, if one should measure the length of each hair on an opossum, the findings would be an identical bell-shaped graph with the longest on one side, the shortest on the other side, and two thirds in the center.

Believe it or not, the same principle applies to sexuality in all its aspects. Some people are highly sexed, while others are hardly sexed. Some have slight or no attraction to their same sex, while others have intense same sex attraction, and so on.

The problem society has had with this God-ordained distribution of sexuality has been generated and perpetuated by religion. Because, at least from the time of Moses and the Ten Commandments until today, prohibitions against normal God-given sexual instincts and impulses have been used as a tool for controlling people, society has been forced to adapt to a ‘one size fits all’ attitude about sex and sexuality. As a consequence, most people who have fallen outside that central two thirds in their sexuality have been severely ostracized. Some religions have declared them as intrinsically evil. Other religions have gone so far as to put them to death. My understanding is that ten nations still hold that view and practice of the death penalty

The psychological effects on those ‘deviate people’ have been so great as to promote suicide in many. Others have resorted to drugs. Many have felt more comfortable leaving their home society and living elsewhere so their activities would not be perpetually ridiculed and criticized by family, friends, and acquaintances.  

It is my understanding that the Ancient Greeks and Romans recognized those sexual preferences differences to be normal and acceptable. If my information is correct, the word lesbian stems from the fact that homosexual women frequently congregated on the Greek island of Lesbos and did their thing in obscurity. Consequently, they became known as lesbians.

The truth is that gay people can no more change their sexual feelings and drives than can heterosexuals. They simply are the victims, if you will, of God’s perfect distribution plan. Because of ill-directed, and/or ignorant church teachings, many, if not most, LGBT people have been forced to live a life of ‘hell on earth’. There is little doubt that many have sought hiding places such as religious ministries, priesthoods, nunneries, brotherhoods, monasteries etc. The irony lies in the fact that in those places, they are perpetuating the persecution of their own kind by the religion they are forced to teach and preach.

Because that same Puritanistic attitude has long since infiltrated our legal and social systems, LGBT people have had little quarter in either society, religion, or politics – they just suffer.

Now, to the essence of sexuality. To my knowledge, no human male has ever had a baby. Likewise, to my knowledge, every female with normal external and internal genitals is capable of producing a baby once sexual maturity has been reached. Therefore, the only God-given essential purpose of the female is to produce offspring. Likewise, the only essential purpose of the male is to fertilize the female so she may become pregnant and produce offspring. God cares naught about how that happens.

All the words, put into God’s mouth by people, were put there by those who wanted to control their subjects. Time has shown that sex has been the best tool ever discovered for executing that control. Not only that but sex has been the best tool for extracting our money.

Please, always remember this: there is no truth in this universe outside God’s Perfect Truth System. Furthermore, all that truth was released at the moment of the Big Bang 13.7-8 billion years ago in the form of all the perfect particles of energy which make up everything gravid in existence. Each of those particles was commissioned by The Will of God, The Holy Spirit, to be perfect and remain perfect in both form and function – that they have done. They contain all of God’s perfect Truth. Everything that has ever happened since those particles’ release has been the direct consequence of their perfect activity. So, everything that has ever happened in this universe has been the consequence of what went before and has always been perfect for its set of circumstances. Since that instant of The Big Bang, God has taken a ‘hands off’ attitude – he had nothing to add – all his Perfect Truth was released at once.

The conclusion from all this should be obvious. That Perfect Truth demanded the evolution of living things which needed a method for propagation. From the tiniest to the greatest, from the dumbest to the most intelligent, God’s Perfect Truth System demanded a method and means of propagation for each species. We can observe those methods in most species. God’s Perfect Truth System demands the male fertilize the female and that demand is insured and satisfied by an insatiable drive. In some species it is so intense that males are willing to give their lives in that process of sharing. For instance, the female Praying Mantis eats the head off the male while mating, and the male bee which fertilizes the queen dies immediately thereafter. Some extremely lower-class animals divide and reproduce asexually, but they came equipped with a method for doing that.

Those who wish to control us, beginning with Moses, have used God as a threat to us for that purpose. That threat is known as, and masquerades under the guise of, ‘religion’ – that has caused basically all the world’s major problems, but that matters little – it is alive and well. However, as of late, religion has softened its approach for rather obvious reasons — loss of both money and control. More and more people are finding religion too restrictive on themselves and, consequently, it has become irrelevant in their lives – attendance at religious services is in sharp decline.

In the meantime, it behooves us all to have a clearer understanding of our own sexuality. It is, in fact, ours and ours alone. It may be similar to, slightly different from, or grossly different from our neighbor’s. Therefore, it demands us to not be judgmental. Always remember, “people who live on glass houses should not throw stones”. Instead, we must be tolerant and understanding of other’s sexuality, a task that may be difficult, indeed, because we have become so prejudiced by religious teaching. To put it bluntly, religion needs to ‘get the hell out’ of people’s sex lives. And, by the way, so should government – how about a comfortable place in God’s Perfect Universe for everyone?

The supporting arguments for these and many more controversial ideas concerning a philosophy of God and his universe are to be found on my books, Wilderness Cry, Peace in Spirituality, and Provocative Catholic.

MAN’S EXPECTATIONS–HILARY L HUNT MD

In my last correspondence, I explored mankind’s erroneous understanding of God’s expectations of us. I explained that since God is a Perfect Rational Being, there is no possibility of God having any expectation of any kind. With his perfect intellect and will, God has ‘set in stone’ how every particle of perfect energy will behave – no variance or deviation allowed or possible. Each of us, as well as everything in existence, is composed of those same identical particles.

Today, I will show that all expectations of humans are generated by each person’s understanding of how things should be and, furthermore, who is or should be responsible for those decisions.

Throughout recorded history mankind has recognized the desirability of social order. Gradually, as civilization became the norm, a power base became established either through force or negotiation – even the native savages of the Americas had a Chief and, usually, a council for making and enforcing rules for their societies.

The Old Testament tells us that Moses and his brother Aaron were the established leaders of the Israelites at the time of their escape from imprisonment in Egypt. For whatever reason, God selected Moses for that job. What the Good Book doesn’t tell us is how that came about. It does tell us that Moses was a murderer and, consequently, was forced into exile for eighteen to twenty years. While he was there, God appeared to Moses and had lengthy discourses with him about his designated task of leading the Israelites out of Egypt.

You may recall that, on their way to the Promised Land, as the Israelites became stranded in the desert, they lost faith in Moses’ leadership. They abandoned their One True God and began worshiping pagan gods. In addition, they turned to a life of debauchery. Moses, who was obviously an intelligent person, sat down and wrote out what he considered to be the expected civil norms for their society – The Ten Commandments. When he presented them to his brethren, they just laughed at him and continued their merry way of life. That angered Moses. So, he broke the stones upon which his rules were written and promptly wrote a new set on new stones. Only this time, he presented them as God’s rules with the warning that any violators would be punished directly by God, himself. At that moment, sin was invented.

In addition, it was surmised that those sin breaches angered God. Therefore, God must be appeased by sacrificial offerings –religion was invented. Of course, the writer(s) of that book recognized the need for Divine support for their rules. So, they concocted stories of numerous interactions with God including bargaining with him. Not only did they firmly establish expectations of themselves but, more importantly, they concocted word and action expectations of God – religion needed a firm footing.

As it turned out, some of those Moses-generated rules of civil expectations have stood the test of time. Most present-day societies use Commandments 5, 7, and 8 as the basis for their legal system. The other seven have generated the tens of thousands of religions in existence – the real profit-makers. So, 5,7, and 8 represent the expectations we have of each other, and the other seven constitute the basis for our unrealistic expectations of God and God’s supposed expectations of us.

 Those latter seven commandments have generated the largest money machine the world has ever known, while, simultaneously, generating the greatest cause of civil unrest the world has ever known – all because of ignorance. Not one of their proponents knows God.  Not one of them knows or is willing to admit that God is a Perfect Rational Being.  If they did, their purpose and position in life would instantly be obviated. They would know that God has no expectations of us, and we should have no expectations of him, except that his Will is ‘set in stone’ and is unchanging and unchangeable. His Will, The Holy Spirit chose and keeps perfect each particle of energy, of which everything in this universe is composed. That happened at the instant of the Big Bang 13.7-8 billion years ago.

If you would read and study my little book, Wilderness Cry, and its sequels, Peace in Spirituality, and Provocative Catholic, you would understand how and why that is true, and how and why that is the only truth in this universe. There is no truth outside the perfect rationality of the creator of the building blocks of the universe. Additionally, all truth in this universe is contained in those building blocks which collectively are known as quanta.
