Recent horrendous acts of violence and terror by Islamic fanatics were carried out against UN personnel and others apparently in retaliation for the burning of a Quran (Koran) by an imbecilic religious fanatic in Florida. So, once again in the fine tradition of revenge and retaliation that is the eye-for-an-eye brand of justice that originated with the Old Testament, we see how easily things flare out of proportion…and how little consideration is given to the laws of cause and effect.
Certainly the burning of any book, supposedly holy or not, is no excuse for harming let alone killing anyone. But the percolating poisons of religious delusion need very little additional potentiating in order to render all rationality inoperative. The preacher in Florida, seething with righteous anger at the mere existence of any other delusional religious belief system competing for adherents, demonstrated that insane actions delayed can and will still erupt unless completely contained and neutralized.
While religious apologists will say that it isn’t religion itself that’s responsible they are only partially correct. The fact is that while each human being is indeed entirely responsible for their own actions, indoctrinating people, filling their heads with completely irrational, imaginary, never to be proven nonsense can disable crucial functions. Even logic and true moral thinking can be impaired or even totally disabled, depending on the age and mental capacity of the person.
We are certainly in for more outrages and hand wringing, and equally predictable cluelessness and pointless pontification by the general public, pundits and religious “experts” alike. All of this goes hand-in-hand with what Billy Meier refers to as God-delusion and God-delusion insanity.
So, for those who understand how the immutable, impersonal, universal laws of cause and effect operate there is still much sadness, though not much surprise. Just as the inevitable collapsing of lands and structures is now underway, so is the collapse of all of that which is false and unsupportable in human consciousness and that can no longer can be sustained.
Turning one’s attention to the teaching of the spirit, of truth and of life will bear better fruits, such as living a life of peace, love, freedom and harmony, completely devoid of beliefs and delusions.
