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. In addition, you may find out more about me and my upbringing in my little book, Growing Up in Fancy Farm Kentucky. All are available Amazon-Kindle and from me – handg@comcast.net.

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.

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.

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, that is, 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, he cannot possibly reject anyone or anything. He knew 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 most 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 killed him 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 knew better than to expose it directly. It would have betrayed them and their 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. I am convinced that Jesus only purpose was to be our liberator from the oppressive Jewish religion.

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.
