Fear may be defined as a rational concern that someone or something is about to bring harm of some kind to oneself. For instance, rational people are likely to be fearful of terrible storms such as tornados, or small business owners may have legitimate fear of losing their businesses when the economy turns sour. There are literally a limitless number of events and circumstances which create meaningful fear. Irrational fears, known as phobias, are typically instilled in us as very small children — nyctophobia is an unwarranted fear of the dark — claustrophobia is fear of close places — acrophobia is inordinate fear of heights. Those psychologically generated fears (phobias) are dreadful and will last one’s entire life unless proper psychological therapy is received.

Courage, on the other hand, is the willingness to act despite a fearful or unpleasant circumstance. Bravery and courage are similar, but I believe bravery implies a determination to act in the face of real danger. Courage seems to imply a determination to act despite the possibility of vehement disagreement, ridicule, or disparagement. Bravery is acting in the face of real danger to one’s life or limb whereas courage is the determination to act in the face of injury to one’s character, social status, or psyche.

So, what’s the point? — simply this. For more than six years now, I have been writing and publishing, writing and publishing, writing and publishing. I have published four books and have written and published over 350 blogs. Three of my books are philosophy having to do with the nature of God and his universe. Of most importance is how they show, unequivocally, how all religion is invalid because not one of them has defined the essence of the god they are attempting to appease by their worship and sacrifices. I have shown how all their religious belief are based on astrology (pseudoscience of astronomy), mythology, superstition, witchcraft, and ignorance — they knew not one iota of science (truth). However, they have all survived and multiplied (now over 33,000 so-called Christian religions and sects alone) by using the tactic of ‘impaling their constituents on a spear of guilt’ created by their offenses against a vengeful god — punishment is thereby mandated and only the church can administer the protective and/or curative remedy. Of course, that remedy always comes at the cost of a ‘pretty penny’.

Prior to my writing, I had been desperately searching for a clue or clues to exactly what or who is this God I had been attempting to appease. I knew, in a general sense, from an experience with a young Jesuit priest who painted a realistic picture of the Trinity for me in 1958. He told me that God has a perfect intellect and that his reflection upon himself yielded an identical perfect intellect, the second person The perpetual loving, choosing, accepting, willing of those two carried the image of its generators and was the third person, the Holy Spirit, or the Will of God. I instantly recognized that truth, but I was unable to put it into proper context.

I ‘hit the jackpot’ about ten years or so ago when my endeavor and quest for more knowledge encouraged me to take an extensive course in the basics of Quantum Mechanics (particle physics). I had studied Classical physics which is the physics of the gross universe and its components, but I knew practically nothing about the subatomic world of particulate matter. A quantum is the smallest particle of matter which cannot be further subdivided. There are many different varieties of quanta, but each particle of a specific variety is indistinguishable from its counterparts. Furthermore, each particle is perfect in both in form and function, is unchanging and unchangeable, and not one is in existence now than at the moment of the ‘big bang’ 31.7-8 billion years ago.

 Consider what I just noted. Are we not talking about eternity when we say something is perfect and unchanging. When we say something is perfect in both form and function, are we not speaking of a perfect rationality. When we say there is a perfect rationality which exist in eternity, are we not speaking of God? And when we consider that every gross object in this universe is composed explicitly and completely of these perfect particles, are we not demanded to accept the fact that God exists directly in everything? I believe so without doubt. Jesus and Saint Francis of Assisi are the two most notable to share that awareness.

So, when this universe and everything in it reaches its demise, what’s left? — nothing but God. So, what happens to us and all other creatures which have existed on this earth and likely on millions of other earth-like planets? Who knows, but I’m inclined to believe we will ‘have an identity’ in God. With that astonishing discovery of Quantum physics, I was instantly able to define God: God is A Perfect Rational Being — God’s essence is Perfect Rationality.

Of course, that definition had so many implications, the most notable of which was the absolute invalidity of all religion which professed to appease a vengeful god. That discovery was startling to me. What was I to do?

With some fear and trepidation, I determined to go wherever the road led me — believe me, it led me to the most unexpected places. That trip was, and still is, so exciting. It prompted me to share that beautiful information with you, but at what cost?

I was afraid — fear of ridicule, rebuff, mockery, and belittlement. But then my fear turned into courage. I had to be courageous, otherwise, my discovery would go unrevealed.

I had learned years ago to try to never say anything of meaning I could not defend. In my practice of orthopedic surgery, I had literally hundreds, maybe thousands of occasions to, not only make but also, defend statements during legal depositions in medical cases. If I could not defend it, I never said it and, furthermore, I would never be coerced into saying or agreeing with any statement I could not defend. That attitude served my patients, their employers, and the legal system well. It became my personal motto.

So, my advice: if you have something of importance to say, have the courage to say it, but never say anything of importance unless you can defend it. When I was young, I made the mistake once of repeating something someone had said about someone else. That ‘someone else’ came back on me as though I was the instigator of the saying — if you’re fortunate, as I was, it will take only one time to learn that very important lesson.

So, seemingly, with my sudden ability to define God’s essence and all its implications, I had a ‘tiger by the tail’. I determined to tame that tiger by putting my newfound knowledge into book form. Not only that, but I would irrefutably defend it in that same writing. In addition, I would welcome meaningful debate. So far, more than six years later, I have had the following reactions: many, many, many have praised my work and expressed untold gratitude for my courage; several have asked for private audiences for clarification of things they did not understand — they all left elated and satisfied; a few expressed a little dismay, not at me, but at the truth I presented; not one has made even a vague attempt at rebuttal of me and my work — no one can — remember I won’t say it if I can’t defend it.

Mind you, I’m not saying that preachers and religious people are bad people — I truly accept that they believe what they have been taught and they feel they’re doing the right thing. I simply want to ‘set the record straight’. Just like Jesus, my aim is to remove from you that ‘terrible persecuting blanket of guilt’ imposed by religion so you may be happy and free to love God and neighbor as Jesus suggested we do. They hung Jesus on a tree for his efforts — thank God they can’t do that to me. I also thank God for the courage to do and say what I know to be truth.

My fourth book, Growing Up in Fancy Farm Kentucky was written at the repeated behest of my Fancy Farm hunting buddies. They would hear me tell some tale of an experience from earlier days and literally demand that I write a book about my life growing up there. I finally relented —it has been a monumental success.

We all know what a mistake is and, without doubt, each of us has made many of them in our lifetime. Simply put, a mistake is a judgement or action we make which proves to be incorrect. Collectively, our society makes millions of mistakes daily — some trivial — many with fatal consequences. In the United States alone, over 35,000 people are killed in motor vehicle accidents annually. Most of those are caused by a mistake in judgement, attention, lack of skill, recklessness, etc. Many, however, seem unavoidable — deer or other animal, tire blowouts, other impaired drivers, etc.

As kids in elementary school, when we were naughty, our teachers frequently punished us by giving us ‘work-back’ problems to do. If you’re not familiar with a work-back problem, it goes like this: you are given a number (the larger the number, the more difficult) which you must multiply by the number 2 and then multiply the products successively through the number nine. You will then have a very large number as the final product. You must then begin dividing that number by the number 2 and successively divide each dividend through the number 9. The ending number must be the same as the beginning number. Seldom could one complete a single work-back problem without making a mistake which necessitated starting over —real punishment with no way to cheat —one rapidly learns to behave in class—helps with arithmetic and attention to detail also.

Such mistakes can be very useful for teaching us the value of proper behavior and thereby helps us become better citizens. Fatal mistakes, however, only bring lasting consequences of loss, grief, remorse etc. Seldom ever, is a fatal mistake beneficial to anyone except possibly as an example to others to help them avoid such activity.

Based on my definition of the essence of God as ‘a Perfect Rational Being’, I believe the most consequential mistake ever made in the history of the universe was by Moses because it has affected the entire Abrahamic world of religion ever since. You will recall that as the Israelites were wandering in the desert after their escape from Egypt, they became distrustful of both Moses and their God and began living a life of dereliction. The bible tells us that, as a result of their denial, of him, God gave Moses a set of Ten Commandments by which they were to live. The Israelites, in turn, scorned Moses and continued their ‘merry way’. That angered Moses, so he went back up the mountain and God gave him another set. Only this time Moses presented them with an edict of ‘dire consequences’ if they disobeyed God.

Now, all that sounds well and good if one believes he can talk to God and get direst answers —I don’t accept that at all and here is why. God is Perfect in all respects. For such activity to happen God would be required to change his Perfect Nature, in which case, he would no longer be perfect. Furthermore, instantly, nothing in this universe would or could be trusted to perform as expected. All the Perfect Rationality that exists in this universe would be lost and changed forever. There would be mass chaos among all the building blocks of the universe — very likely, it would implode immediately.

So, I believe, without doubt, that Moses used those threats in the name of God for the purpose of controlling his subjects. That might have been acceptable had it been a one-time event. However, it became a well-used ploy for control and extorsion of wealth by the Jewish hierarchy. Worse yet, it has pervaded the entire Abrahamic offshoots even to this day. And how and why am I allowed to say such?  It’s pretty simple.

God, being perfect, cannot possibly be offended. Neither can he be pleased nor helped. Therefore, God knows no sin. Human abuses against each other are of no concern to God because God’s Perfection allows for no concern. The fatal mistake which Moses made has persisted four thousand years or so and has accounted for way more distress and pain in humanity than all human misdeeds against each other combined. The guilt trip blanket which Mosaic Law threw over humanity has become the cornerstone of monumental egregiousness. Physical pain is real but usually temporary. Emotional (mental) pain is worse because seldom does it go away. Furthermore, it frequently becomes so great as to make one despair and take his own life to escape it. Statistics show that from the years 2000 to 2020, more than 800,000 people died from suicide in the USA — that’s an average of 40,000 per year.

Yes, we need good civil law just as in Moses’ time, but definitely, we need not attempt to enforce it by threats from God. We need to be teaching everyone that God loves us unconditionally, that we need to love and accept God unconditionally. We need to teach love and acceptance of each other while knowing full well that each of us is different—we must accept each other’s differences —that’s what love is.

Two thousand years ago, a man named Jesus walked this earth. He observed exactly what we observe today —the guilt trip imposed by religion for purposes of control and financial gain by its perpetrators. I have no doubt that Jesus became so incensed by the injustice he observed that he vowed to himself and to God that he would liberate the world of that evil. He would do so by educating people about God’s love and how they should love God in return and love their neighbors as themselves. He had hoped to educate his followers so they could continue to spread that good word worldwide in his absence —he knew he would be killed. To this day, it seems to me that Jesus was a complete failure.

Those who formulated a new religion using his name completely ignored his teaching of love. They perpetuated the myth of a vengeful but merciful God who demanded sacrifice and reparation for our misdeeds. In reality, they perpetuated a new version of the Jewish sacrificial religion. And look what has happened. That Church became so corrupt as to cause major splits between Rome and its Eastern counterparts. Later the corruption became so bad as to cause an outright revolt, and innumerable ‘churches of protest’ came into being, and they’re still popping op. So now we have worldwide over 33,000 such churches and sects claiming to be the correct version of Jesus’ teachings. But you guessed it, universally, they all still attempt to impale us with an angry God. I am unaware of any one of them which is not still attempting to exercise control over us while simultaneously striving to ‘grow’ their empire. It truly breaks my heart to say so, but I know it to be true.

Jesus intended to be our liberator, not our savior —we were never lost in the first place. Jesus knew that God loved us each unconditionally. He knew that God resided in us and all his creation, not apart from it as the Jews were teaching. Jesus also knew that each of us was a distinct individual because each of our entire life’s experiences were different. God made it to be that way so each of us could have an individual identity similar to others but distinctly different from any other. God cannot possibly reject anything he has allowed to come into being and in which he resides.

I am fully aware that what I just said is totally contrary to what any of us have been taught, but I will say it again. The biggest ‘fatal mistake’ the universe has ever known was Moses frightening his subjects into control with threats from a mythical  god. I’m not suggesting nor implying that Moses gained monetarily from those threats, but I am suggesting that those who followed Moses in command certainly did and still do even as I write.

My little book, Wilderness Cry outlines this philosophy succinctly, and its sequels, Peace in Spirituality and Provocative Catholic, expand it dramatically. Growing Up in Fancy Farm Kentucky will give you an inkling into the author’s upbring — both humorous and historic. All available Amazon-Kindle and from me handg@comcast.net

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                he has created.

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

                speculation based on ignorance.

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

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

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

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

                change his Perfect Rational Nature.

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

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

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

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

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

                the world has ever known.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Every event represents ‘God’s Perfection in action. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am aware that thousands have read my books, and for that, I am grateful. However, many more have not yet been exposed. Most, who have read my little book, Growing Up in Fancy Farm Kentucky, report amusement and delight. All books are available Amazon-Kindle and from me, handg@comcast.net.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Collusion 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.

Btw, all my books are available from Amazon-Kindle and from me, handg@comcast.net.
