let me make it clear that I no longer suffer from these delusions. I realized what was going on and got help.

brain damage (psychological/emotional) needs a lot of time to heal compleatley.

it was a long strange trip and I an sooooo glad that its finaly over.

now it kind of hurts to realize that I spent 30-40 years in a fog...and helped to delude others as well.

for that I can never apologize enough.

blind adherence to a superstitious belief system is a powerful drug.

It disables portions of the brain (parietal and temporal lobes..spelling might be off)

causing long term damage to these areas. I suffered from it myself by way of a lot of drug use in the past.

you will find a lot of ex-drug users that go twords religious and other superstisious patterns when they "clean up". its a real phenomenon that I have experienced and have observed many times in others though they, when going throu it do not realize it. its like epilepsy.

so...either through drugs that whack your lobes or a repeated thought pattern what is going on is ...really....just brain damage so sever that it cannot heal itself any longer.

just like the ant that because of a parasite in the brain climebs to the top of a blade of grass to be eaten by a cow so that the parasite can get into the cows gut.

the ant is no longer in control. and is unaware of that fact.

Yes, I guess that's a good point. And yet: Although they arrive at the trial's conclusion saying that God had simply turned against them and had made a covenant with "the other side", they still go in the gas chamber chanting their prayers... - That's certainly how it was or could have been, but I just don't get how "believers" can be like that.

thats the whole argument right there.

if god(s) is good then why is he a homicidal, genocidal, capricious, megalomaniac,misogynistic asshole?

because the people that keep reinventing the god concept are homicidal, genocidal, capricious, megalomaniac,misogynistic assholes.

"wejew" has more parts of this film online: http://wejew.com/media/3095/God_On_Trial_Complete_Film_14/

It's worth watching, albeit it's not the complete movie.
