GOD’S EXPECTATIONS — HILARY L HUNT MD

                We all know what an expectation is. It is an innate understanding that something will happen or come to fruition in a future timeframe. We humans have generated a culture of expectations throughout recorded history and, of course, that has created a tumult of disappointment through loss of friendships, loss of money and financial support, and all sort of losses including even loss of life. There is a trite but true saying that ‘perception is reality to any individual’, but what happens when that perception is based on ignorance, unrealistic desire, or a possible host of erroneous premises. In short, ‘all hell breaks loose’. Then wisdom speaks from nowhere; ‘experience is the best teacher’.

            So, what about God’s expectations of us and our expectations of God? My perception (reality) is twofold. Number one, God has absolutely no expectation of us and number two, any expectation we may have of God is based on misinformation and/or ignorance, or both. Please allow me to explain.

            From day one of recorded history, homo sapiens has imagined some sort of higher power who controlled some part or all the universe. In the English language, those deities are known as gods. In addition, they each had a sex, some male and some female. Typically, each had specific powers which were directed at various human behaviors. Those gods dictated literally every aspect of human existence and behavior. Eventually, the Hebrews came to recognize a singular God who created and controlled the entire universe which amounted to the sun, moon, earth, the stars of the Milky Way with an occasional comet or meteorite.

 As their perceptions dictated, their God was a human-like figure with human-like attitudes. Of course, he was male, all-powerful, and extremely moody. However, he could be bargained with to the point of making deals. In fact, he made two such deals with the Israelites – he would do ‘this and that’ if they would do ‘such and such’. The first deal fell through, and God unleashed his wrath on them unmercifully. But then God repented of his harshness and moodiness and agreed to another deal. He would never again abandon them or scourge them as he had before. However, despite his seeming change of heart, the Israelites imagination deemed their God to be greedy to the point of demanding a sacrifice of part of their hard-earned goods. Those sacrifices must be of perfect specimens which could only be provided by, as well as offered by, the High Priest – a very convenient method of bilking the commoner.

Another very important part of God’s last contract with the Israelites was a promise to send a Messiah who would restore the Kingdom of Paradise just for them – to hell with everyone else. After many centuries of long-suffered waiting and expectation, Jesus of Nazareth appears and proclaimed himself to be that Messiah. But Jesus turned out to be a big disappointment. He quickly alienated himself from the Jewish rulers while simultaneously confounding his followers with his teachings. Furthermore, he disappointed his followers by telling them that he must first die before he returned to restore the kingdom – we’re still waiting.

For centuries the Jews had been indoctrinated about a vengeful God who was full of expectations. He was very demanding of them and expected them each to offer perfect sacrifices to him in atonement for their sinfulness. Of course, the Jewish rulers had long since established that only the High Priest was allowed to make those offerings in their name and, more importantly, only the High Priest could provide such a perfect specimen for offering at their behest – a real money-making racket. The poor commoners were forced to buy those perfect offerings at an extortionate price. Indeed, religion was profitable then. I haven’t detected any change to this date – have you?

The Jews were astonished when their new-found Messiah began teaching about Love –God’s Love. Jesus told them God had no expectations of them except to love him with their all and to love their neighbor as themselves. Of course, that teaching was frank heresy and amounted to open treason. Jesus knew the consequence of treason was crucifixion, but he was determined to liberate his brethren from the terrible persecuting blanket of guilt and fear which Moses had thrown over them – all for control, power, and ultimately, money. Jesus reassured them that God was all love and could not possibly reject them.

However, totally ignoring Jesus’ teaching while conveniently using his name, those who formulated the Holy Roman Catholic Church at the behest of Emperor Constantine in 325 A D, patterned it exactly after the religion and sacrificial ritual of the Jews. The only difference being that the Jews’ sacrifices were often bloody animal sacrifices, whereas the new religion offered a perfect unbloody sacrifice of Jesus himself. However, the money kept rolling in as the hundreds of monstrous edifices built worldwide attest – God still needed to be appeased and pleased. I say sham.

I am no fool. I am fully aware that most of you reading this have been indoctrinated and vilified to the hilt with some version of false teaching about Jesus of Nazareth. You have been made to feel guilty in one way or another for being ‘God’s child. We have all been taught that God made us to be one way, but he expects us to be a different way. Jesus says that concept is nonsense.

In my little book, Wilderness Cry, in detail I show philosophically, scientifically, and historically, how and why all world religion is bogus. I demonstrate conclusively how and why our perfect God has no expectations. More importantly, I show how and why God’s perfect love precludes any possibility of his not loving us.

In my books Peace in Spirituality and Provocative Catholic, I demonstrate clearly, how organized religion has been, and still is, the major deterrent to world peace. Furthermore, I offer a foolproof plan for permanent peace based on obvious extrapolations of God’s Perfect Love. You would do yourself an act of kindness by bringing peace and joy to yourself through their reading and study.

GOD’S FOOD–HILARY L HUNT MD

            Did it ever occur to you to wonder what God eats? Sounds like a silly question, eh? Well, maybe it is not so silly after all. In my last communication, I demonstrated that the Face of God is on everything, and, knowing that every living thing must be nourished, we are justified in asking that question. The more important question might be, how any living thing knows what to eat and, more importantly yet, how and why an appropriate source of food for each entity comes to be available? In reality, those questions emanate from the most fundamental question of all—who is God?

Most of us have been indoctrinated with the idea that God is some human-like figure sitting in the clouds lording over his creation. In my book Wilderness Cry, I have shown both scientifically and philosophically that such ideation is pure nonsense. Particle physics has shown us there is a perfect rationality which pervades our entire universe and I have chosen to recognize that Perfect Rationality as a living being—God is a Perfect Rational Being. That definition dispels all other concepts of a god as well as all forms of worship heretofore, and presently, practiced—all are illegitimate. However, all are fostered for the selfish purpose of power, control, and money.

So, having established that God, with his Perfect Intellect imagined each perfect particle of energy in existence and with his Perfect Will, the Holy Spirit, he chose and keeps each perfect in both form and function, we can readily see that God’s existences in the temporal world must have nutrition. In short, God’s Perfect Rationality visualized and willed a self-contained system wherein he ‘feeds off himself’.

Three to four billion years ago the earth’s atmosphere contained no oxygen—only methane gas. The earth’s surface had gradually generated complex protein substrates which evolved into one-celled anaerobic bacteria which fed off the methane gas and, in the process, released oxygen into the atmosphere. Gradually the methane was consumed. The oxygen reacted with hydrogen in the atmosphere to form water and oceans were formed. They, in turn, generated one-celled bacteria which utilized the oxygen while releasing carbon dioxide in the process. Simultaneously, primitive spores arose which utilized the carbon dioxide, and the process of photosynthesis began.

As the evolutionary process continued, more complex animal and vegetable life-forms evolved. Each new evolutionary group found a ready food source available from the lower-class life around it. That process continued until this very day. Generally, it was the larger and stronger which preyed on the smaller and weaker. Then intelligent beings called homo sapiens appeared. Even though he was smaller and weaker than many animals and was subject to lethal attacks by many different species, his rationality enabled him to not only protect himself from such attacks but, also to outwit them, kill them, and use them for food, clothing and even fire.

It seems to have been rather easy for us to become entangled in a trap of conceit which allowed us to think of ourselves as the ultimate endpoint of God’s evolutionary process. However, such thinking only shows our lack of understanding of our Perfect Rational Being. God’s universe is only 13.7-8 billion years old. Knowledgeable scientists tell us it will last another seventy-five billion years. One can only imagine what might come after us many times over during that timeframe.

With our scientific understanding of the makeup of God’s universe so expansive that no human mind can comprehend it, and recognizing that a perfect rationality pervades it all, we must accept that God, who is Perfect Rationality resides in it all. Therefore, everything in existence represents the Face of God and all living things require food. So, God not only requires food but also, by necessity, feeds off himself—a true self-contained system of Perfect Rationality outside of which there is no truth.

You might wonder or ask what difference it makes whether we understand and/or accept it. And, I say it makes the most important difference. Unless each of us comes to the clear understanding that we and all things are mirror images of our Perfect Rational Being, there can never be peace among humans.

These concepts must be taught in our school systems universally. Mind you, they are not religion—far from it. They are science and philosophy at their deepest roots. Is that going to happen? It would be the miracle of all miracles—please don’t hold your breath. The constrictor, death grip, money machine of religion and ideology make that as likely as finding the proverbial snowball in hell. That fact, however, does not alter the fundamental truth.

I am fully aware that what I am telling you likely annoys you, mainly because it messes up your little playhouse. You do not want anyone suggesting that what you have been taught to believe is pure mythology which began from a combination of astrology, superstition, ignorance, and mythology, but soon became recognized as a near perfect tool for controlling you and extracting your hard-earned money. However, please take note: worldwide there are thousands and thousands of those money extractors. Why do you think that is? Would it not be miraculous and wonderful if there were only one? We could and would be like-minded. It is possible but so highly unlikely—power mongers relinquish their stranglehold grudgingly. Instead of relinquishing their hold, they strive constantly to increase it by stealing their competitors’ constituents – so, we have perpetual war and strife. The absolute only way that can change is at the grass roots level.

 Informed constituents from all sides must unite in a rebellion against tyrannical religion. That rebellion must begin with informed voters putting people in state houses and congress who daringly will redirect our education system to a true scientific and philosophic understanding of our existence. We simply must cease the Santa Claus presentation of our creator. We must recognize that our Perfect Rational Being made only one creation –the perfect tiniest particles of energy, quanta, of which everything in existence is made. That was the Prime Cause, The Big Bang. Those perfect little particles instantly began doing as they were commissioned to do and formed the protons and neutrons which make up the nuclei of every element in existence. From that instant onward, the result of every event has been a direct consequence of every event which went before –some call it evolution –I prefer to call it God’s continuing creation.

I will stop here with the urging that you to read and re-read my little book Wilderness Cry. Then follow up with Peace in Spirituality and Provocative Catholic. If you can stay openminded your eyes will be opened like never before.

THE FACE OF GOD–HILARY L HUNT MD

            If someone were to ask you what God looks like, what would you tell them? How would you describe God to that person?  What kind of verbal picture would you paint, or, if you were to attempt a drawing, how would your God’s image appear on paper?

            As a child, I remember well what my God looked like because my classmates and I were presented with a myriad of images of God in our various Roman Catholic Catechism and bible studies. Most often, God was presented in bust form, nestled in a cloud situated a moderate distance above the earth. He always had mid-length grey-white hair and sported a similar colored beard. Sometimes he was smiling, sometimes he was scowling, but often he presented an angry demeanor. Of course, those pictures of God were the Church’s attempt to instill in our young minds the fact that God was a human-like figure who lived in heaven somewhere in the sky.

            Later images of God, made after Jesus’ crucifixion, death, and resurrection, depicted God as a grey headed and grey-bearded old man in regal attire sitting on a massive throne with Jesus, his little boy, sitting in a subservient position at his right side– The Holy Ghost was never depicted.

            Contrarily, as a sidelight, the devil was always presented as a black, odd-looking, human-form, with red eyes, often with horns, and almost always carrying a three-pronged pitchfork. He resided in the netherworld (hell) below the earth along with thousands of other devils. Many of them were constantly roaming the earth, tempting us humans to sin and join them there in hell.

            The point of all this discussion is to show the imagery the Church had of God. The Church Fathers had that exact ideation about God’s person and persona. All that imagery stems from many varied sources, but most is rooted in ancient Egyptian mythological thinking which was projected through the centuries to other pagan societies and kingdoms who, also presented images of their multiple pagan gods as human-like figures. By Moses’ time that understanding was a given. Not only was God a human-like individual, but he also would speak to certain individual such as Moses, give them commands, and even bargain with them.

            Because of such thinking, it was deemed necessary to appease that vengeful God, and, therefore, sacrificial religion was born. Simultaneously, pagan gods were being appeased also, occasionally with human sacrifice.

            As I matured and studied, I became aware that all religion was rooted in mythology, astrology, superstition, tradition, and imagination, and, therefore, had to be a hoax. Consequently, I embarked on ‘a journey of understanding’ that I might discover ‘truth’. That journey took many twists and turns but eventually led me to discover who God is and what he looks like. I want to share that information with you today, but first we must review some basic background information before you can understand.

            I am assuming that almost everyone by now has been expose to at least a rudimentary understanding of chemistry. WE know through chemistry that everything in this universe is made of atoms. Atoms are the small basic particles of all elements which react with each other to form all matter. As atoms continue to act and react with each other they create a state of being of constant change, and therefore exist in a temporal state. On the other hand, we accept that God lives (exists) in ‘eternity’ which is a state of being with no beginning nor end and in which no change is possible—therefore God cannot possibly change.

            For the longest time it was thought that atoms were the smallest particles in existence. Then it was discovered that atoms could be split. A high energy particle could be shot into a large Uranium atom and split it into multiple smaller atoms such as hydrogen, sulfur, iron etc. with a massive release of energy—the Atom bomb was invented. Before long it was discovered that the smaller hydrogen atoms could be fused into larger helium atoms with a much greater release of energy—the much more powerful Hydrogen bomb was developed.

            So, knowing that atoms are composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons, then the question is ‘what are the protons and neutrons made of’? It was already known that electrons could not be further subdivided. And that is where the science of Quantum Mechanics (particle physics) enters the picture and gives us the answer to the puzzle for ‘what God looks like’.

WE know that protons and neutrons are made of indivisible particles of energy called quarks. Quarks, along with many other particles such as electrons, photons bosons etc., are called quanta (pleural for quantum), and, in fact are the smallest particles of energy which cannot be further subdivided. In addition, each quantum particle is perfect in both form and function, each is indistinguishable from its counterparts, each is unchanging and unchangeable, and not one exists today than existed at the instant of the Big Bang 13.7-8 billion years ago. Now, given that knowledge and understanding, are we not talking about eternity? All the particles of energy which make up everything in our changing universe, themselves exist in an unchanging state we call eternity. Yet everything they make up exists in a constantly changing temporal world.

            From the beginning of recorded history people have tried to know and understand God. In more modern time (three to four thousand years) thinkers, philosophers, and theologians have tried to understand their God. They knew that without an understanding of the ‘essence’ of their God, it had no meaning—God was a myth. Therefore many, many spent their entire lifetimes attempting to define the ‘essence of God’—they all failed—none knew particle physics. Had any one of them known particle physics, and had an open mind, defining God’s essence would have been a rather simple task.

            Accepting a concept of God demands one to accept that, at the moment of the Big Bang, God released his perfect energy in the form of the aforementioned perfect particles, collectively known as quanta, into a void universe. Those perfect energy particles instantaneously did what they were designed to do and formed the protons and neutrons which, along with electrons, formed all the atoms of all the basic elements of matter in our universe. Those atoms instantly began acting and reacting with each other to create the continuously changing and evolving universe which we know today.

            So, with that knowledge, I was able to define the ‘essence of God’ rather easily—God is A Perfect Rational Being. That Perfect Rationality pervades every existence in our universe. That pervasion stems from the Perfect Intellect of its designer and is kept perfect by the Perfect Will of its designer, The Holy Spirit (The Will of God).

            Jesus was the first person in recorded history to display that understanding and he had the forthright conviction and determination to profess it—the Good News—The Gospel. Sadly, the Jews killed him for it –he was a traitor to their moneymaking machine. Three hundred twenty-five after Jesus’ death, the formulators of modern-day Christianity completely scorned Jesus’ ‘Good News’. And while conveniently plagiarizing his name, they reverted to the ‘pagan’, sacrificial religion of the Jews and perpetuated their hierarchal domination and money-making machine. Remember, Jesus overturned their money changing tables once—his anger and frustration became overwhelming—he already knew his fate—one last lick—hurray for him.

            Many others accepted Jesus’ understanding. The most notable in my memory are Francis of Assisi and Meister Eckhart. Francis was grudgingly tolerated by the Church; Meister Eckhart escaped the Inquisition only by natural death.

            So, what does God look like? There is not enough paper or ink to paint a complete picture, but I’ll paint you a ‘glow in the dark’.

When you see a leaf on a tree, you see the face God.

When you see the tree on which that leaf grows, you see the Face of God.

When you see a blade of grass, you see the face of God.

 When you see a beautiful starry night, you see The Face of God.

When you see a beautiful ripe tomato, you see The Face of God.

When you see your neighbor, you see The Face of God.

When you see nurses and doctors laboring to care for you, you see The Face of God.

When you see your plumber, electrician, carpenter, etc., you see The Face of God.

When you see the elderly afflicted with dementia, you see The Face of God.

When you see a grizzly bear kill and eat a human, you see The Face of God.

When you see a stray mother dog suckling seven pups, you see The Face of God.

When you see any mother in labor, you see The Face of God.

When you see any irrational or hostile person, you see The Face of God.

When you see a distraught father caring for his family, you see The Face of God.

When you see a wine-o lying in the gutter, you see The Face of God.

When you see a beautiful new baby of any variety, you see The Face of God.

When you see a tornado, an earthquake, or volcano, you see The Face of God.

When you see a shipwreck, plane crash, or car wreck, you see The Face of God.

When you see a child afflicted with cerebral palsy, you see The Face of God.

When you see a loved one afflicted with incurable cancer, you see The Face of God.

When you see a disgruntled wife or husband, you’re seeing God’s face.

When you see your wife prepare you a wonderful meal, you see The Face of God.

When you see a starving child in Africa, you see The Face of God.

The bottom line is this: anything you see, feel, breath, hear, taste, smell or imagine is The Face of God. In addition, in God’s Perfect Truth System of Rationality, if it is possible to be, it will be and will always be The Face of God..

Quite obviously, this list could go on forever, as God is forever. However, this list only shows you that God is in all things and all things are in God, (“Split a piece of wood and I’ll be there. Lift a rock and you will find me there”), but also, there is no truth in this universe outside the perfect truth system of our Perfect Rational Being whom we call God. Everything else is pure mythology propagated by those who are either unscrupulously ignorant, or outright thieves—I suspect the later. Religion is the most divisive hoax the world has ever known. It causes nothing but strife, but guess what: when you see religion, at its worst, which it all is, you see The Face of God.

Because of that recognition, I have published three books on that subject. Wilderness Cry is my masterpiece. Peace in Spirituality and Provocative Catholic are extensions and explanations of that philosophy. They are available from me, handg@comcast.net, or from Amazon-Kindle.

The Face of God

Jesus Of Nazareth–Thwarted Liberator of Mankind–Hilary L Hunt MD

We have just completed celebrating part of what I believe to be the greatest myth ever perpetrated on the human race. It begins with the myth of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth to a virgin and continues with an equally fabricated myth of his resurrection and culminates with a fairy tale of his ascension into heaven where he is seated at God the Father’s right hand. Neither God nor Jesus has a physical form. Therefore, seats, sides and directions in eternity represent the fanciful imagination of some writers, and furthermore, such ideation exposes their ignorance to the core.

And I can hear you now, screaming and tearing your garments and calling me every known unkind name, including blasphemer and heretic of the worst kind. Likely, if you were a giant cobra snake with twelve heads, you would bite me with all twelve of them incessantly until I was dead—such hatred for me. But I say, “wait a minute, you know all those fairy tales like ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Alice in wonderland’ are true also, don’t you?” And you would likely say “Of course, I know they aren’t. They’re just fairy tales for little children.” In retort, I would say, “yes, I know. They were taught to us as little children, but most of us didn’t believe them because we already knew better. They were told to us just to tickle our fantasy imagination.” So, I would ask, “why should we believe the fairy tales about Jesus?” And you might respond, “I was taught it in Catechism class or RCIA, or Sunday school, or at home, or my preacher said so because it’s in the Bible”. And I would say, “well, just who wrote the Bible and where did they get their information?”

Now, we’re getting somewhere—where did the biblical writers and rewriters and rewriters and rewriters ad infinitum get their information? That, my friends, is the sixty-four trillion-dollar question, and I say trillion advisedly, because that number would likely pale in the face of the total amount of money which organized religion has extracted from humanity. And, because it is so expensive, it deserves a thorough historical review.

One of the best references I have been able to discover is a super-educated student of ‘life and customs’ in Jesus’ time, Reza Aslan. In his through book, ZEALOT- The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, Mr. Aslan explores the history of Jesus’ days in detail. He shows how the Jews had fallen under rule and control of the Roman Empire, how Rome agreed to allow the Jewish hierarchy to continue religious control of their people while, simultaneously, the poor Jewish peasantry were being oppressed by both Jerusalem and Rome. That oppression was so great that there were literally hundreds of insurgents going around Judea performing miracles (magic) in hopes of gaining a following for the express purpose of overthrowing both Jerusalem and Rome. Of course, they all met the same fate, which was reserved explicitly for traitors, crucifixion.

Jesus, however, had a different perspective which demanded a completely different goal. With his genius mind, he recognized the fallacy of the Jewish religion. He clearly saw that God did not exist in a ‘dualist’ state, wherein, God is here, and his creation is over there. He readily saw how God must be present in all his creation including Jesus, himself, and all humanity. Not only that, but he also saw how God’s love is perfect and therefore, God cannot possibly reject anyone or anything. Jesus recognized how and why Moses created the concept of sin and made it ‘civil law’ for purposes of control, and how, later the established hierarchy created the very lucrative business of offering ‘perfect sacrifices’ to their God as a means of appeasement of ‘guilt’ for their misdeeds. Jesus only purpose was to remove that terrible, persecuting blanket of guilt by explaining to his people that they were guilty of nothing but being God’s perfectly loved people.

Jesus knew he was teaching heresy and that he would be killed for teaching a concept of love—God and neighbor. The hierarchy wanted no part of that teaching. It would have destroyed their money machine—they had him killed as a common traitor. But can you find in the bible exactly why the Jewish hierarchy wanted Jesus killed? I can’t. The writers of the bible we have now knew better than to expose the hierarchies’ intentions directly. It would have betrayed them and their clandestine desire to stay in control—bedamned with Jesus. He was just a great ‘talking point’.

On the other hand, I can find no direct quote by Jesus, himself, in the Bible where he says explicitly that he came into this world to die for the direct forgiveness if all mankind’s sins. My understanding is that theology gradually crept into Christian philosophy over a several hundred-year period. I am convinced that Jesus only purpose was to be our liberator from the guilt imposed by the oppressive Jewish religion by explaining to us how and why God’s love is perfect — we are guilty of nothing except being part of God’s continuing creation.

Jesus’ teachings coincide exactly with my singular definition of our God’s essence: God is A Perfect Rational Being. That Perfect Rationality cannot possibly change nor be changed. That means virgin conceptions, resurrections, and ascensions into heaven are impossible. Furthermore, those concepts represented the collective imaginations of those in charge. In fact, it might not have been so much imagination as it was ‘determination’ to have all the myths which had been created before in the Old Testament come true. In the meantime, the money machines are thriving.

So determined were they to have their mythical fantasies come true, that almost three hundred years after his death, the Jewish Christians who formed the first official Christian religion at Nicaea, did so with utter disregard for Jesus and his teachings. In doing so they plagiarized his name—they crucified him again in perpetuity.

Jesus only intent was to liberate us from the persecuting blanket of guilt imposed by the Jewish hierarchy. Sadly, like all other zealots of his day, he failed miserably. To this very day, there are over 33,000 religions worldwide plagiarizing Jesus’ name—Just like the Jewish hierarchy of Jesus’ day, all for power, control and, most importantly, money.

Does anyone on the face of this earth see what I see? Have we all been so deeply brainwashed that our eyes and minds are closed? Have we been so indoctrinated that we dare not ask a question for fear of reprisal or ridicule? Are we afraid to investigate, or are we like infants with open hungry mouths accepting whatever someone puts in them? I’m not. In fact, I have written three books regarding this vital subject, Wilderness Cry, Peace in Spirituality, and Provocative Catholic. In Wilderness Cry, I describe the process of developing doubt, determination to resolve that doubt, and the miraculous discovery of God’s essence through an encounter with Quantum Mechanics through which we learn that in the particle world, everything is perfect, unchanging, and unchangeable—Perfect Rationality—God.

In Peace in Spirituality and Provocative Catholic, I explore many of God’s attributes—explicitly, an absolute certain pathway to worldwide peace. In that light, a few years ago I issued a call for The Worldwide Communion Of Spirituality which means the understanding and acceptance that the Will of God, The Holy Spirit, is imprinted onto every particle of energy in existence. Otherwise, none could be.

In addition, I have published a semi historical, semi autobiographic little book, Growing Up in Fancy farm Kentucky. I am aware that thousands of you, worldwide have read my books, but I mention them for sake of others. Amazon-Kindle

CHURN–HILARY L HUNT MD

 Likely, most of you may think of the word CHURN as a verb or action word indicating a wild, uncontrolled admixing of whatever—people, clouds, ocean swells and the likes. However, there is another type of churn which is a tool used mostly for making butter. I remember very well, as a kid growing up on a small farm, ‘churning’ cream for the purpose of extracting its butter.

For those of you who don’t know, a churn was a stone jar about eighteen inches tall and about nine inches in diameter. The neck rim was inset with a 3/4″ shoulder which accommodated a round wooden top with a 1″ hole in its center. It was fitted with a wooden paddle about 7″ in diameter to which was attached a wood stem that projected about 2′ through the hole in the top. It was used thusly: about I/2-1 gallon of cream was poured into churn, the top and paddle were installed, and the paddle was worked up and down until the butter began to congeal and adhere to the paddle. Once that process of congealing began, it was completed rather rapidly, usually 2-3 minutes. The butter was then scraped from the paddle and washed repeatedly to remove any residual milk (blue john), placed in a mold, cooled, and served.

Now, I’m going to apply that concept of churn to our world condition. What we observe on a moment-to-moment basis is an entire world churning wildly with hostilities and uncertainties. The obvious reason for that discord is the gross differences in ideologies and religions. There are hostilities and wars, or threats thereof, on almost every inhabited continent. Observing that perpetual condition for seventy-five years of my life compelled me to seek a solution.

It took a while but finally it clicked with me. The problem lay in the fact that no one had defined the essence of their God (Allah, Buddha, Brahma, Yahweh, etc.). By defining our common Supreme Being as ‘A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING’, I was able to accomplish two very important things. One, I was able to remove all the mystery previously imposed on us by mythical religions, and two, I was able to establish a universal commonality among all people. I was able to show that each of us is a mirror image of our Creator, and as such, all are brothers and sisters. With that understanding, we can, should, and must quell that churning violence and discontent, and come to a sudden tranquility of love and peace. Therefore, I have called for recognition and acceptance of the “Worldwide Communion of Spirituality”. Has anyone taken note? Does anyone care? If you do care and are looking for a rationality to support such an idea, my little book, Wilderness Cry, explains all. I strongly urge each one of you to read and understand it. It’s our only hope for peace.

Since making this original post April 4, 2018, I have extrapolated and expanded many of God’s attributes (accidents). I was able to do so by applying the logical basis which that ‘essential definition’ demands. I believe most of you will find the truths you discover in my new book, Provocative Catholic, to be both amazing and, at times, shocking.  Amazon, Kindle ET AL.

ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH SYNOD–HILARY L HUNT MD

 

From time to time, since its institution in 325 A D, the Catholic church has convened councils or synods in an effort to address perceived problems. Most councils involve only church hierarchy, but synods may involve both hierarchy and laity. Recently, Pope Francis called a worldwide synod to specifically address a major concern—dramatic loss of both membership and church attendance. He has asked each Bishop to gather information and suggestions from his constituents through meetings in each parish where suggestions are delivered. This two-year synod was prompted by the dramatic loss of church membership and church service attendance.

Once upon a time, Catholic Church affiliation and attendance was at its highest level in Europe and North America. However, since WW2, that designation has dramatically shifted to Africa and South America.  The United States, specifically for the last seventy years, has seen a steady decline in attendance at services which translates into an alarming drop in income. The result has been almost a total wipeout of Catholic school (K-12) education. Many of the larger, more famous names still operate but, instead of being church owned and operated, they are now private institutions which charge a rather hefty tuition—rich people schools.

The problem with Catholic school education is multifaceted but the main culprit seems to be empty convents —cumulative salaries for qualified teachers is way too expensive. Too many people, recognizing that they are already supporting a public school system through taxes, are either unable, unwilling, or both, to pay a high tuition for private school education. The relative few remaining church supported schools have seen a dramatic decline in enrollment numbers just in the last forty years.

Mind you, not too long ago, parents would be excommunicated from the Catholic Church for sending their child to a public school. There are some of us still alive today who remember that. I have no quarrel with Catholic School education— I, myself, am the product of nineteen years of it. The teachers were highly educated and skilled. The problem was the teaching of Catholic Catechism as though it were mathematics—that dog simply won’t hunt anymore.

More and more, people are finding the Church’s mandates about anything sexual, particularly regarding marriage, birth control, and divorce, to be irrelevant. The Church has always used those ‘tools’ to control people. However, many have become disenchanted with such rules which are increasingly becoming meaningless in their lives. So, the obvious happens—they drop out of Church.

I perceive this synod as a desperation attempt by the Church to right its ship on the shoulders of its constituents—I’m skeptical. It likely is just another flavor added to the ‘castor oil’ to make it more palatable—it will still be the same ‘castor oil’ no matter how it’s camouflaged—just kicking the can a little farther down the road waiting for the inevitable—total collapse—all because of refusal to honor Jesus’ teaching—love of God and love of neighbor.

On another front, the Catholic Church in the USA continues to bolster its ranks by aiding and abetting the flow of illegal immigrants across out southern border—most of them identify as Catholic. That illegal activity is promoted and assisted by Catholic Charities which provides them with false documents—the Biden administration is complicit by its failure to control that border. Seems like I vaguely remember Mr. Biden visiting the Vatican shortly after taking office—I wonder why? —I think I know—make your guess.

It is not only the Catholic Church which is bleeding membership. My understanding from various sources is that all religions are seeing a drop in membership and service attendance. Without any slightest doubt, I think I know why. All, so called Christianity is based on mythology, astrology, superstition, ignorance, witchcraft, and unsupported imagination. All of them preach about a Supreme Being who they call God, but not one of them has defined their God’s essence.

In this modern day of scientific knowledge and understanding, it seems totally irrational that not one of them is able to define God’s essence. I am certain many can—they are afraid to. Proclaiming God’s essence as ‘A Perfect Rational Being’, as I have done, would instantly obviate any need for their existence in their current capacities.

Yes, we need God. Yes, we desperately need God. Every human needs a clear picture and understanding of the ‘real God’—the God who resides everywhere in everything in existence—the God who created everything to be perfect and to function perfectly at all times—the God who is Perfect Love—the God who cannot possibly change his own Perfect Nature—the God who cannot possibly be pleased or displeased—the God who cannot possibly be helped or hurt —the God who cannot possibly reject himself or any part of his creation—the God who encompasses all truth, and outside of whom, there is no truth—the God in whom all power exists through his Perfect Truth System.

Yes, we could then assemble to further explore and examine the endless ramifications of such a perfect, loving, powerful Being. That should be No1 in our public schools’ curriculum—it’s not religion—it’s science—it’s God—it’s knowledge—it’s truth.

Of course, none of that will happen because of one simple reason—loss of power and control over people, but, more importantly, loss of control of their pocketbooks. In the meantime, the ‘castor oil ’they dish out will be flavored somewhat differently in hopes of making it more palatable—we’ll see—I’m skeptical.

In the meantime, all I can do is wait, watch, hope, and write what I know to be the truth. There’s no place to go—certainly not to another denomination—they’re all drinking ‘castor oil’, albeit each flavored slightly differently.

All the problems exist because of the direct failure of the framers of Catholicism to heed Jesus’ advice. The Jews had Jesus Crucified because he openly told them they were worshiping a ‘false god’. Not only that, but he openly criticized them for dishonoring God by fleecing his children of their hard-earned money. Two hundred seventy-five years later, the framers of Roman Catholicism did exactly as the Jews had done. They threw that blanket of guilt over everyone. Jesus only effort was to liberate his brethren from the terrible persecuting blanket of guilt which the Jewish hierarchy had cast over them, all for power, control, and money. The bishops clandestinely using Jesus’ name, put into his mouth words which he never said, and built a kingdom for themselves just as the Jewish King, High Priest, and Sanhedrin had done before them. They have been ‘dancing’ all these years, sweeping scandal after scandal under the carpet while pretending to later generations that those scandals never happened— now they ‘must pay the fiddler’.

Sad to say, I made this prediction almost six years ago when I published my little masterpiece, Wilderness Cry—one to five hundred years before extinction of Christianity depending on wars, wars, and more wars. Recently I Published a sequel, Provocative Catholic, which, not only explains in detail the causes of our problems, but more importantly, offers a foolproof plan for permanent peace. Everything I have to say is based on irrefutable scientific and philosophical truth.

In addition, I noted the endeavors of the Hindu’s and Buddhists to understand the nature of their god—had they known science, I am convinced they would have succeeded.

SCIENCE AND RELIGION–HILARY L HUNT MD

Many of you have heard the expression that someone or some thing ‘hates …. like the devil hated Holy Water’. I firmly suspect that nowhere in history has that dictum been more applicable than in the relationship between religion and science. So, we are free to apply it here—Religion hates science like the devil hates Holy Water.  

From an historical perspective, we are aware that all religion was generated in the pseudoscience of astrology, combined with mythology, superstition, and imagination. That was all they had to rely on. It started for western-world religions fourteen-thousand years ago with the Egyptians recognizing the ‘Zodiac’ and assigning certain influences to it. From there, it evolved through a myriad of gods and goddesses who exerted specific controls and virtues. Eventually, the Hebrews recognized a singular God who created and controlled everything in their universe which amounted to what they could see—sun, moon, stars, comets, and planets. They had no idea about the real universe they lived in—trillions of galaxies containing trillions and trillions of stars and other celestial bodies. 

Simultaneously, the Far-easterners, and inhabitants of the Western world recognized the presence of eternal being(s) which existed in everything as well as in some faraway places in the sky—whatever their collective imaginations dictated. In turn, each group developed its own set of understandings of their god(s) and, furthermore, most devised methods of honoring and/or appeasing their god(s). 

As far as I can determine, the Hebrews were the only group who developed a God patterned exactly after their own nature—He could be loving or hateful, merciful or vengeful, accepting or rejecting. More importantly, He could be bargaining. Even though He was all-powerful, the Hebrews believed they were obliged to create contracts with their God and ‘hold his toes to the fire’. By their own admission, they ‘got their tail feathers singed’ when God reneged on the first contract. But they were persistent and ‘made God’ honor the second one—such was their imagination and audacity. 

We are familiar with ‘the rest of the story—Jesus. The Jews had Jesus killed for teaching heresy—love of God and neighbor. In fact, I am convinced that the Jewish Christians who formed the Holy Roman Catholic Church in the year 325 AD, having already experienced the bonanza of power, control, and lucre, were not the least bit inclined to honor Jesus’ teachings of humility and love. Instead, in direct defiance of Jesus, they formulated a church patterned exactly after Jewish sacrificial ritual with them as the controller and dispenser of Divine graces. Mind you, at that point in time, there still was no scientific information available—the earth was flat; the earth was the center of the universe; the celestial bodies exerted supernatural powers over them, ala astrology; the earth was supported on five crooked, wobbly legs and was always in danger of falling into the netherworld below. They knew no truth, but they did know how to put and keep themselves in total control while milking the hard-earned resources of their subjects—the very thing which Jesus railed against that got him killed. 

Things went well as long as Constantine and his son who followed him as Emperor of the Roman Empire were alive. However, with the fall of the Roman Empire, their powerbase was destroyed and, to put it mildly, all hell broke loose. There was a parade of bad Popes; priests and popes alike became sexual predators; squandering popes depleted the Vatican coffers prompting the sale of indulgences to rich people who aspired to have a glimmer of hope of getting to heaven. Not all popes were bad, but many turned to ascetics such as Jerome and Augustine for answers to philosophical questions such as original sin and the role and/or value of women in the church. Women became so deprecated that it was determined that women represented sin—were it not for women, men wouldn’t sin.  

In the meantime, because of power struggles between Rome and the Eastern Church generated mainly by disagreements about married priests and sexual matters in general, plus a lingering argument about the Holy Spirit, a complete split occurred beginning in 1054. In 1095, the Pope instigated the Crusades to win back the Holy Land which had been conquered and occupied by the Mohammedans. The Crusades lasted intermittently until 1396. 

Two hundred years earlier, the inquisitions were instituted to eliminate witches and to protect the earth from falling into the netherworld by unlawful sexual activity—sexual intercourse was prohibited on any elevated structure and violators were burned at the stake. The Church seemed to be in near-total shambles. There still was no science. 

In the year 1497 Vasco da Gama sailed to the Far East and back proving the earth was round but three years passed before the Pope ceased burning people at the stake for denying it was flat. Then, in the early 1600’s, Galileo discovered the sun to be the center of our solar system. He escaped burning at the stake by making a public recantation of his findings before the Inquisition. However, he spent the last nine years of his life under house arrest. 

 Science was beginning. The word science comes from the Latin word Scientia which means knowledge. Knowledge, of course, is truth. Prior to Vasco da Gama and Galileo there was little if any pure truth known. The great Greek and Roman philosophers based all their premises on mythology. Therefore, all their conclusions were false. Thomas Aquinas, whose philosophy the Catholic Church adopted, also based his methodology on Aristotelian philosophy. Aquinas, for purposes of staying in line with biblical and Church teaching, developed a dualistic philosophy which puts God in one place and his creation in another–not only two different places but also two different natures.  

Many great thinkers, among whom I disclaim membership, throughout the centuries, have recognized the presence of God ‘in’ all his creation. That is, in fact, what Jesus taught us— ‘split a piece of wood, and I’ll be there; lift a rock and find me there’ (paraphrased).  

Since I have irrefutably defined the Essence of God as; God is A Perfect Rational Being, and since the understanding of Quantum Mechanics (particle physics) clearly demonstrates that everything in this universe is ‘perfect’ in both form and function, it is not only logical, but I believe mandatory, to accept the premise that nothing in existence can be unless the Holy Spirit (Will of God) resides within it. That understanding brings God and science into ‘perfect unity’. God is science. God is Perfect Truth. There can be no truth outside God’s Perfect Truth System.  

So, where does that leave us? I do not know about you, but I do know about me— it left me ‘crying out for truth’ from a wilderness of mythology, astrology, witchcraft, superstition, ignorance and deceit. 

What I have observed during the last seventy years is a continuous ‘squirming’ by the Church to gradually bringing itself into some scientific alignment without losing credibility. Its plan is a subtle long-term acceptance of scientific principles and an equally subtle ‘sweeping under the carpet’ of archaic and erroneous ideas as the generations go by, knowing that those who remember will soon be gone, and those remaining have little or no interest in studying history. So, the Church pretends — ‘it’s always been this way’.  

It truly breaks my heart to say this, but I know of no religion, now or ever, which teaches anything remotely similar to God’s truth. 

I have elucidated these findings and many, many more in my books, Wilderness Cry, Peace in Spirituality, and Provocative Catholic. In addition, I have published a semi-autobiography, Growing Up in fancy Farm Kentucky. All are available Amazon-Kindle.

CHOICES AND PERSONALITY DEVELOPEMENT–HILARY L HUNT MD

Today, I will attempt to explain to you and to show you why and how each of us is a specific individual, one of a kind, unlike any other who has been or ever will be in existence—it all has to do with choices. So, what is a choice? It may seem elementary, but a choice is a decision of acceptance each of us makes between the possibility of two options—our intellect always tells our will which the better of those two possibilities and our will is duty-bound to accept that ‘better’.

It all began for each of us with the ‘choice’ our parents made to mate and produce us. Together, they imparted our genetic makeup which in itself imparted the framework for much of our choosing—physique, temperament, IQ, sex. From that point on, our choices are based on learning experiences, many of which seem to be gained before birth. However, most of our learning experiences occur after birth. In fact, most of our subconscious programming occurs before we become rational—age seven—and sets the stage for most of our prejudicial decision-making for the rest of our lives. Many of those experiences are real and generate real logical choices such as ‘touch a hot object and get painfully burned, close a door on your finger and it hurts really badly, etc.’ We may not remember the painful experience, but we instinctively know to avoid it in the future. That same principle applies to prejudicial experiences heaped upon us by well-meaning but severely biased parents, teachers, playmates, babysitters, etc.  Those biases, likewise, are stored in our subconscious and form the basis for our decision making (choices) the rest of our lives, and we don’t know why—seldom de we have memory of the events which prejudiced us.

As we enter the realm of rational thinking at about age seven, each of us is already molded into a specific individual, similar to, but vastly different from, all others of all times. At that early age each of us is already afflicted with our own individual set of fears, biases, guilt complexes, anxieties, and delights. From that moment on, each rational choice we make is flavored (prejudiced) by that myriad of subconscious influences of which we are totally unaware. Present fifty children with the same set of possible choices, and even though many will make one choice while the remainder choose the other, no two of them choose for identical reasons. Furthermore, none of them are aware of the ultimate dictators of their own choice.

Nowhere is our prejudicial thinking and acting more overt than in our choice of friends, political parties, and/or religion. There’s an old saying that ‘birds of a feather flock together’, and that saying is absolutely true. Certain people fall into our ‘comfort zone’—we feel ‘at ease’, not threatened around them. Oftentimes, we subconsciously, avoid certain personality types, places, and things, and we do not know why—we are simply not comfortable with them.

With that understanding, it is easy to see, as we go through life, how and why our choices are influence by our ‘built-in’ and ‘developed’ subconscious personality biases. A truer statement could never be made than this; each of our personalities is the sum-total of all our life’s experiences and the related choices made therefrom.

The great poet, Robert Frost, may not have been an educated psychologist, but he obviously had a keen insight into animal behavior and personality development. Please Google his little poem, The Road Not Taken, and you will understand.

Likely, the person with the greatest insight into human personality development was none other than Jesus of Nazareth. As best we can determine, Jesus had no formal education of any kind, and, if he had, it would have been false, because all presumed knowledge was based on error— the earth was flat and the center of the universe, the sun, moon, and stars exerted controlling influences on everything, God was sitting in some mythical cloud overlording his creation, etc. However, Jesus’ insight told him that God was in everything, including each of us. Furthermore, his insight showed him that each of us was a unique individual with its own set of differences from all others. He could clearly see that peace could be achieved only through our acceptance of each other’s differences. Hence, he gave us two commandments; Love (accept) our God with our all, and Love (accept) our neighbor as ourselves. He knew we could not possibly do one without the other. He never once suggested we must ‘like’ (be sensually pleased by) each other, but he commanded us to ‘love (accept) each other.

Jesus aimed those two commandments at everyone, but, specifically, at the Jewish hierarchy whom he observed to be bilking their constituents, in the name of God, for their own personal gain. Jesus was brave beyond ill imagination. The Jewish Hierarchy killed him for that.

With that understanding, I ask you one simple question; “Has anything changed since Jesus’ day? Has any religion heeded Jesus’ admonition?” If so, I have been unable to discover it. As far as I can determine, Jesus’ command to love our neighbor as ourselves has been totally ignored. In my eighty-eight years of attending Roman Catholic services, I have heard only one such sermon, and it was delivered by a friend at my personal behest.

The reason for ignoring Jesus’ command is clear—there is ‘no money’ in love. There is much money, power, and control in the ‘social commands’ Moses used to impale the Israelites. Those who framed Christianity in 325 AD, at the behest of Emperor Constantine, totally ignored Jesus Commands, but rather, reverted to the demonizing, controlling, empire building structure of Judaism. Consequently, nothing has changed since then except the so-called Christianity they created has fragmented into 33,000 money-grubbing branches and sects.

The bishops who formed the Roman Catholic Church made the deliberate choice to ignore Jesus’ command. Those who followed, made similar choices to the tune of 33,000. Now, look what those choices have wrought—war and more war, threats and fears of even greater wars, human suffering beyond imagination—people feeling empowered to bring their will onto others without regard for their neighbors’ suffering.

When all is said and done, remember this; Jesus made the conscious choice to die so that we might be liberated. Collectively, we rejected Jesus—our choice. Is it our pride, our greed, our lack of love (acceptance)? I’d suggest, ‘all the above’.

EXPECTATIONS–HILARY L HUNT MD

An expectation is a firm belief and/or anticipation that something will happen or be the case in the future. Wittingly or unwittingly, consciously, or even subconsciously, we all have hundreds or thousands of expectations daily—most are habitual. Without thinking, we flip a light switch on—we expect light to appear. It doesn’t always but, if it doesn’t, there is a scientific reason why—we either fix it or have it fixed—our expectation will be valid again—at least for a while.

 Likely, most of our expectations are based on past experiences which have yielded such anticipated result. For instance, due to past learning experiences, we have all sorts of expectations such as: touch a hot stove and get burned every time; open a door in frigid winter and cold air rushes in; drive an automobile over the tolerated speed limit in view of a policeman and get a speeding ticket; hit your thumbnail with a hammer and it hurts. Those and thousands similar would be classified as conscious expectations.

 What about unconscious expectations— the tricky part for most of us. Believe it or not, they also are based on learned experiences but, almost always, the learning has been done with an immature mind which yielded a false impression. For instance, many people go through life burdened by many different phobias such as fear of the dark, fear of heights, claustrophobia, etc. Those fears are based on a false narrative presented to their immature minds which then made erroneous conclusions—however, always real for a lifetime to the individual involved unless appropriate psychiatric treatment is rendered.

One of the most devastating expectations is the overwhelming subconscious expectation of punishment generated in immature minds by well-meaning parents and guardians. Immature children are frequently made to believe they are bad (evil) and deserve punishment—an indwelling feeling of guilt. That perpetual feeling of guilt creates an expectation of impending punishment which generates indwelling anxiety—hurt is coming—don’t know when nor where. Sadly, way too often, that anxiety leads to deep feelings of worthlessness and helplessness leading to deep depression with no visible ‘escape hatch’ except suicide.

Obviously, then, some expectations are good—others terrible.

Then, there are failed expectations as common as house flies based on politicians’ rhetoric. Too frequently, they tell us one thing to garner our vote and do exactly the opposite. Sometimes, those promises were made in honesty but, later, were found to be impossible to keep—I believe, more often, deliberate deceit. What they really want is our vote so they can control us and, ultimately, extract our money.

Without doubt, I believe the most common failed expectation comes from God’s refusal to answer our prayers, and the most aggrandized expectation is the false belief that he has answered them. Most of us have grown up in some sort of so-called Christian tradition and have been taught that God will answer our prayers if we beg him enough. Many of us get caught in the trap of viewing, as a ‘miracle’, the most miniscule and menial event which eventuates according to our wishes and expectations. That kind of thought process and reasoning is tantamount to saying medical, physical, chemical, and biological science has no foundation in fact. For instance, on literally a daily basis, I hear people beg for prayers because they are about to have a simple medical procedure performed by a known expert, and then thank everyone profusely for all their prayers when the procedure goes well. What do you suppose their expectations were—if no one had prayed, the procedure would have failed? Of course, as would be expected, the procedure went well—was it because we prayed, or because medical science has developed to make that outcome to be expected? Without doubt, I think the latter.

 The purveyors of religion, however, have convinced us from day one that God answers our prayers—have you ever heard a suitable explanation for ‘why your/our prayer weren’t answered?’— I did. When I was twelve years old, I observed that, despite our entire community repeatedly coming together in earnest prayer, urgently begging God to ‘make it rain’ when our crops were drying up from drought, and such like-petitions, not a single time were our prayers answered—at no time, for anything. I was an acolyte (altar boy) at Saint Jerome Church in Fancy Farm, Kentucky, living on a farm and witnessing the devastation of our meager crops by droughts and floods alike—that question had super-serious significance for me. Why would God not make it rain for his most favored group? The answer my priest gave me was momentous in more ways than one. He said, “It is God’s will”—what a staggering blow— a knife in my heart. From that moment on, I knew that prayer of any kind except thanksgiving was a total waste of time and, moreover, a total misappropriation of God’s nature. I didn’t know the ‘why’ at that time, but I determined right that moment to find out. It took me another sixty to sixty-five years to do so but, finally, I did. I discovered who God is. I learned that God is not the string-pulling puppeteer whom we had been taught about just to entrap us in a snare of false expectations. I learned that God is A Perfect Rational Being.

That knowledge and understanding made it perfectly clear that God cannot possibly change anything about his own Perfect Nature. He cannot possibly be hurt or pleased. He cannot possibly be influenced in any way. Any such change would totally nullify his Perfection and make him an imposter—not a chance. Physical miracles are an absolute impossibilityperiod.

So, what then should be our expectation when we talk to God? Without doubt, we should do exactly as Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane— ‘Father. If it be possible, let this chalice pass from me but, not my will but thine be done’. Jesus knew what his fate would be for attempting to liberate us from the horrible oppressive blanket of guilt imposed on us by the Jewish religion, but I seriously doubt he expected it to be as bad as it was. When we pray as Jesus did with humility and thanksgiving then, and only then, will we be exhibiting  submission to God’s will, rather than the arrogance associated with expecting God to submit his will to ours. Do not let the purveyors of irrational religion create ‘false expectations’ in you as politicians often do to only let you down.

TIME–HILARY L HUNT MD

What a simple word—time. We use that word endlessly throughout the ‘run of a day’ and, likely, never once consider just what we are saying nor what it means. Some examples: what time is it?’ I’ve got time to make it, if I hurry; he annoys me all the time; do you have time to help me for a minute to move this table, my heart is beating only 45 times a minute—need a pacemaker; I’ve got time for one more hand, if we hurry; what time are we leaving in the morning? —just to mention a few examples.

I’d venture a small wager that the average person would stammer, hesitate, and, while making several loquacious attempts, would fail miserably to succinctly define time. Sure, everybody knows what ‘time’ is—or do they? Test yourself and see if you really know.

Time is one of those words we ‘grow up’ with, use repeatedly, assume we know its meaning, but then are baffled when ask to specifically define it. And I am no different from you. Had I not taken a special interest in attempting to understanding and explain, both philosophically and scientifically, the basic nature of our universe and its creator, if any, I likely would be stammering also.

As best I can determine, the simplest, most straightforward, scientific definition of time is this: Time is a ‘measure of change’. You might ask, “what is changing?”, and I would answer, “everything in our universe”. You also might ask, “why is everything changing, and when did time begin?”—unwittingly, two of the most fundamental questions of our existence.

Once upon a time, there was no time—the universe did not exist— a void of total nothingness. At a moment, roughly 13.8 billion years ago, A Perfect Rational Being whom we call God released his energy in the form of perfect particles, collectively known as quanta (pleural of quantum)—the smallest particle in existence which cannot be further subdivided. At that instant, those particles set about the business for which they were designed, and change (time) began. There are many different types of quanta but each of its type is identical to its counterparts, each is perfect in both form and function, each is unchanging and unchangeable, and not one, more nor less exists today that did not exist at the moment of their release—the Big Bang. Therefore, like God, they exist in eternity—they are God. Yet, they make up everything in our universe which is constantly changing. We humans, in our need to get in sync with that change, developed systems for calibrating that observable change and called that calibrated change ‘time’. That calibration enables us to better order our lives and plan and act accordingly—schedule.

The next, most fundamental question one might ask is, ‘why did God create a universe which is constantly changing’ and, more fundamental yet, ‘how’.

The ‘how’ is easy to explain—the ‘why’, not so easy.

To the ‘how’: knowledgeable scientists have known for a long time that an energy imbalance exists in our universe—they call it entropy. That imbalance demands change as each system attempts to balance itself and come to equilibrium. We are now 13.8 billion years into that imbalanced timeframe. Again, some scientists have suggested it will require another 75 to 100 billion years before that equilibrium is achieved—and time ceases.

Now, to the ‘why’—a genuine sixty-four-thousand-dollar question. Throughout recorded history, people have pondered that question and, furthermore, have come to  rather similar conclusions. Almost all have attributed the changes they have observed, both good and bad, to a higher power to which they have attached numerous designations—God, Allah, Yahweh, Brama, Buddha, and dozens of others. Invariably, they have understood their ‘higher power’ to be responsible for both the good things and the bad things in their lives. Most have interpreted the bad things to be the result of vengefulness of their god and have developed schemes of ‘appeasement’ in hopes of restoring themselves into a more favorable position with that being. Such attempts at appeasement are known as religion. Seemingly, not one of them has ever recognized the Perfect Nature of their Supreme Being because most, if not all, are perpetually attempting to appease him and, worse yet, begging him to change his perfect nature and revert to the imperfect nature of ours—they want him to change—come out of eternity and share our misery. You might say: “Oh no, I don’t want that. I just want God to perform a miracle for me. That’s what I pray for”. Do you not see that, in all reality, that is blasphemous? You are begging God to break his own rules of Perfection and become imperfect like us.

God’s Nature is exhibited in every changing entity in this universe. When you pray and ask God to do something ‘unnatural’, you are asking God to destroy his Perfection just for your selfish desires. Consider this: God’s Perfect Nature demands that when the elements Chlorine and Sodium are introduced to each other, they immediately form ‘table salt’—every time. They represent God’s Perfection, God’s Will, God’s perfect Nature. And you would dare beg God to change his perfect Nature just to ‘satisfy your whim’?

I understand perfectly well why you may feel justified in such prayers. Just like I, you have been brainwashed by religion into such thinking. But those who perpetuate such ideation do not know God. They do not know the one and only Perfect Rational Being. Therefore, they cannot possibly know that such a Perfect Rationality cannot possibly change or be changed.

I would suggest to anyone who cares to listen, you will be very happy if you simply ‘get in line’ with God’s Will. Instead of begging God to change, thank God for your existence, for your sustenance, and for your salvation as exhibited through Jesus the Christ. Rather than begging God to bend his will to ours, we should be humbly bending our will to his—then, and only then, will we be happy—I’ll guarantee it. Sooner or later, everybody’s life hits a ‘major snag’—incurable disease, major trauma, etc. We must humble ourselves to that reality and accept that inevitable ‘change’—God’s Perfect Rationality demands it. Such humility will not change anything except our attitude—a most beneficial change. Whatever the misery, the fear, the pain, it will be more tolerable knowing it is God’s Perfection, God’s Will at work.

Eventually, our time of ‘conscious change’ on this earth will cease, but the endless change of location of the particles of energy which make up our bodies will never cease until time ceases and all return to the Singularity. The particles which God’s Perfect Nature ‘loaned’ to our bodies will eventually be assimilated into millions, maybe billions of other entities before perfect equilibrium is reached and time ceases.

What we do not know is what happens to our spirit, our existence giving principle, when our time of conscious change on this earth ceases. We believe and hope that it is God and that, in some mode, we will have an ‘identity’ in God.

Thousands of years ago, those purveyors of religion learned it could be a grand ‘tool’ for, not only controlling the masses,’ but, more importantly, for extracting their hard-earned money. Preachers have become our mediators—for a ‘pretty penny’.

Go ahead— the next tine you speak to your preacher or minister of any kind, ask him/her to define the ‘essence’ of the God of whom they speak. If they do not respond that God is A Perfect Rational Being, their god is a myth. If the response is as I said, then the question is: why are we asking a Perfect Rationality to change? Are we not blaspheming? Should we not be showering our God with incantations of love, praise, and thanksgiving. Isn’t that what Jesus commanded is to do? The answers will be very interesting, indeed—give it a try.

Most of you know I have written extensively about this subject and many akin considerations in my little books, Wilderness Cry, Peace in Spirituality, and Provocative Catholic. If you have not read them, I strongly encourage you to do so for your peace of mind—time’s a ‘wasting—be gone before you know it. For a little diversionary fun you might consider reading my Growing Up in Fancy Farm Kentucky. All are available from Amazon-Kindle and from me, handg@philosphyscienceofgodtheuniversehilarylhuntmd
