Religion and Nature

Friedrich Nietzsche proposed that a pontificating Christianity developed a moral system that inverts Nature. In The Anti-Christ, he said Christianity is "hostile to nature" and is a "religion of…Continue

Profound Belief

In the Prologue of my book, I wrote in my mid-twenties there ignited in me an intense battle centered around a childhood supernatural worldview, and building a definitional worldview that I could live by. This dualistic battle amounted to my gethsemane, or my own noche oscura del alma ---> “dark night of the soul.” My dualistic battle became a daunting task to repeal-and-replace an obsolete worldview. My dualistic battlefield became a fierce insistent, persistent, consistent internal…See More

Saints vs. Sinners

Dualistic religions preach about saints and sinners. We have sanctimonious preachers who appear to enjoy ranting about the raining down of fire from Heaven on us earthly sinners. Dualistic religions introduced the supernatural forces of saints and devils, and good angels competing with bad angels. Religions created farfetched opposing superbeings constantly in battle competing for the souls of us ordinary bone-blood humans. Unfortunately, many individuals pay homage to these outlandish man-made…See More

In God's Image

Religion's spirit-body split has produced many dualistic divivions like Hell and Heaven. Hell (fictional dystopia) is ostensibly the realm of the damned. Heaven (fictional utopia) is supposedly the realm of the saved. Many religions have their laudatory chosen few destined to go to Heaven (the saved) and their derogatory many discarded to Hell (the damned). In Greek mythology Hades is the Underworld; land of the dead. Gulley and Mulholland said, "much of the pain and suffering in our world is a…See More

About Me:
I was raised and childhood indoctrinated into a Catholic supernatural worldview. I have been on a quest to repeal and replace it with a worldview I can attest to and support.

Gulley and Mulhollan refer to the dualistic "fear-based and heaven earning religions." (2004) Dualism has been involved in Abrahamic religions from the start and has led to a “theology of separation.” (Walsch, 2005) Propagandistic fear-based religions contribute to shame, guilt, anxiety, mistrust, depression, drug addiction, sexual repression/ obsession, and even suicide. Condescending dualistic religions have a view of a damning God (a God of damnation), a malicious diety of retribution. A…
