Rational Theistic Luciferianism: Emotional Intelligence

Emotions can be rational and you can think with them. It takes practice to think when angry, and if you repress your anger (hide it away) it's still there you just blind yourself to it. What you won't give conscious expression will have unconscious expression. Krav Maga taught me to be angry, to let the anger out, and then to no longer be angry (*). This is why "rational" people, usually men (**), pro

The Old Testament

Image
Gehenna, Jerusalem A dear friend of mine from the cult asked a question (paraphrasing) " what's the point of the old testament given that so much of it is made up? "  See also The Bible: The Bad Parts Christian Guilt and a Christian Perspective on Abortion The Bible: The Good Parts Here's something of my reply, in several parts. I think anyone who goes to the Bible looking for literal truth, or laughs at the Bible because literal truth is not found in it, is a fool. The Bible is a collection of sacred texts and they must be read as sacred texts. For the spiritual message. That the stories of King David are not true (David was likely real but he probably came to the throne by fraticide and was never a shepherd) was a bit of a blow to "of the line of David" claims for the Christ in my mind, but doesn't alter the spiritual message one jot. Understanding the spiritual message, the gospel of true freedom; well that's another story.

Doing A-Levels

You can read more of my story in: My Autohagiography: Fragments of a Once Broken Mind St. George's School Harpenden Doing a-levels I enjoyed maths and couldn't stand English lessons so I started doing further maths as well which clashed with English. I did half further maths and half English, but I'd missed eigen vectors at the start of the course. It turns out that without eigen vectors you can't really understand any of further maths. I enjoyed sitting in the lessons, and was happy to miss English, but I got an E in further maths. The teacher was called Mr Foley and I suspect he was an alcoholic. We were a smart bunch doing further maths, but I remember lesson after lesson he would teach us something which would seem to make sense and then ask us to solve a problem based on what he'd just taught us. We'd all sit there blank faced, absent a clue. He completely failed to teach us. And then he'd go to the pub. However, last year I had a job working for a dodg

A Road Trip to Niagara

You can read more of my story in: My Autohagiography: Fragments of a Once Broken Mind My journey into poly and ethical non-monogamy was long and tortuous. The pursuit of a freedom I'd fallen in love with as a troubled adolescent but had no words for and no worthy examples to look to. The first polyamarous person I met was in Boston, a friend of Garth who I knew from the Python community and now worked with. Taylor was working on his PhD in neuropsychology and we tripped together. One huge mushroom with a colourful cap, blended into orange juice. My first trip since my psychedelic psychosis of about fifteen years previously. I saw aliens and talked to Stephen Hawking. The next time I saw Taylor was a couple of years later. I'd come to America to celebrate the birthday of a friend's wife. Garth, his wife and I and a work colleague, trekked by car from North Carolina to another friend's ranch just outside Nashville. He was a tech just-about-millionaire and this ranch was t

The Bible: The Bad Parts

Image
  A friend asked recently about which Bible verses are used to justify evil. I first met this friend, more than twenty years ago, in the Christian cult in which we were both living at the time. He left long before me and provided a home to my wife and I when we first moved out of the cult, who left us with nothing. I have in the past written about some of the good things hidden in the Bible: The Bible: The Good Parts This is a selection of some favourite verses of mine in response to his question about the parts of the Bible used for evil. I ignored much of the genocidal parts of the Bible to focus on the parts I see used for evil in modern Christianity. Psalm 139:13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. This verse has been used to deny abortions to women, to deny them control of their own bodies and lives, and to abuse women using women's health centres. Even used to justify the murder of doctors. Exodus 22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to l

Let it burn up. Identity can be shallow or deep, the forms of the ego or a deeper understanding. If you find your identity in your ego, in your pride or in your worldview, then when your ego is stripped away (somebody contradicts you perhaps or something in your worldview is shown to be wrong) it will feel like dying. This is why people protect their worldview and egos, the
