False Dichotomy: “There is no such thing as consciousness” Science vs. “God will judge and punish you” Religion

false dichotomy

Mainstream science and religion are two limiting beliefs yelling at each other. We do not have to limit ourselves to the false dichotomy. There are other options!

The false dichotomy of mainstream science and mainstream religion

has confused many people and left them limited in their outlooks – often for life. In the West we are presented with a massive false dichotomy between science and religion. On the one hand, we are told by mainstream science that this world is all there is, that we are just biological robots and the universe can be explained mechanically or mechanistically. One of the high priests of science, physicist Stephen Hawking, has said as much in his books.

On the other hand, we are presented with organized religion, often with Christianity or Judaism in the West, which both tell stories of a judgmental and punishing God, of the existence of “Heaven” and “Hell”, and of the possibility of us ending up in “Hell” if we do something God disapproves of. Yet these very same religions supposedly say that we also have free will!

mainstream science is limited by materialism

Mainstream science is severely limited by materialistic thinking which refuses to acknowledge consciousness.

One side of the False Dichotomy: Consciousness-Denying Mainstream Science

The desire to rationally prove and measure everything has become such an obsession to mainstream science that it has denied the very thing that animates the universe, plants, animals, humans and all Life, including these scientists themselves: consciousness. We are consciousness itself, embodied in a unique form. Consciousness permeates everything. Every part of the cosmos is alive; every atom moves and spins, even atoms composing rocks, tables or planets, which means even these objects are alive to some degree.

But because consciousness is pure energy and can’t be easily defined or measured, mainstream science refuses to deal with it. It’s easier for mainstream science to just pretend consciousness doesn’t exist than to try to factor it into its equations. However, that refusal forms the basis and premise of all its knowledge, and if a house is built on a shaky foundation, you can’t really trust any of the higher floors.

Of course, there are scientists out there who refuse to adhere to the strict, limited, materialistic dogma of mainstream science. Many free thinkers are investigating paranormal phenomena and discovering that indeed the world cannot be explained in purely reductionist or materialist terms. The militaries of many advanced nations have already been using the existence of phenomena such as telekinesis, telepathy, remote viewing, time travel and other paranormal phenomena to gain a tactical advantage for their country. And, sometimes hardened “rational” materialists get a rude awakening when they are suddenly confronted with the reality of consciousness. A great example is the case of Dr. Eben Alexander, who wrote Proof of Heaven after his NDE (Near Death Experience), and who never believed in consciousness before this despite being a neurosurgeon.

However, it’s easier for elite NWO social engineers to control people if they can convince the masses that there is no afterlife and no spiritual dimension to life (just look at Marxism or Communism, which promotes “the State” as more important than the family or nation, and encourages atheism for this purpose too). Mainstream science has definitely served a purpose for communist tyrants – and continues do to so.

false dichotomy religion vs science

Religion vs Science is a false dichotomy. Both can limit you. You don’t have to only choose between them.

The Other Side of the False Dichotomy: Dogma-Ridden Mainstream Religion

On the other hand, for those who feel more in touch with their spirituality, soul and inherent conscious will, we are given a different choice in the false dichotomy: organized religion. Although organized religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam contain certain truths, they have overlayed so much falsehood and limitation into their teachings, especially in the form of guilt and fear. This makes them another pitfall for the truthseeker and free thinker. There’s no point exchanging one set of limiting beliefs for another – just look at this list of The Top 10 Most Restrictive, False and Dangerous Religious Beliefs.

One of the biggest limitations of mainstream religion is its insistence that you are separate from God. You are not. You are God. We are all God. God is the sum total of All That Is, and you are a part of that. How could you not be? Every single human is divine, as is every single thing in existence. It is made of God-stuff.

God is not a noun. God is a verb. God is a process. So it would be more accurate to say that you are Godding, rather than that you are God.

Yet mainstream religion would have you believe that you have free will, but if you make mistakes and “displease God”, you’ll end being punished. This clearly makes no sense. If you have free will but some choices are punishable, how free are you really? If someone has a gun to your head and says that you’re free to walk up the road or the mountain, but he’ll shoot you if you go up the road, what choice do you really have? That’s not free will.

Unsurprisingly, theologians have been unable to satisfactorily resolve these inherent contradictions that lie within the twisted Christian doctrine, and as a result have lost many intelligent, spiritual people willing to think for themselves.

And just like would-be tyrants have used mainstream science and atheism to their advantage, so too have they exploited religion to control others. Just look at all the wars fought in the name of religion.

Move Beyond the False Dichotomy

Luckily, you don’t have to choose the only 2 choices you are given in a false dichotomy. There are countless other belief systems, many of which are not so limiting. Open your mind! See the truth and falsity in each belief system, and take with you only what really serves you, what you truly resonate with and what you genuinely believe to be true through your life experience.

One Response to False Dichotomy: “There is no such thing as consciousness” Science vs. “God will judge and punish you” Religion

    Was it irony when Francis Fukayama named his major work The End of History and The Last Man?

    An Illuminatus Speaks

    You will have to decide if this Illuminatus speaks with forked tongue or not. There is no black and white to the matter as I see it.

    I have not read a lot of Alan Watts, because people have always told me I sound like him. I promise that even if you think that someone sounds like you or thinks as you do – this is one book that will challenge many things that we all must question. Here is one of many things said by Watts which I agree with.

    “Faith is an openness and trusting attitude to truth and reality, whatever it may turn out to be. This is a risky and adventurous state of mind. Belief in the religious sense, is the opposite of faith – because it is a fervent wishing or hope, a compulsive clinging to the idea that the universe is arranged and governed in such and such a way. Belief is holding to a rock; faith is learning how to swim – and this whole universe swims in boundless space.” – Alan Watts

    This next piece is from someone I know to be part of the Merovingian families and a real Illuminatus in the good sense. I think it fair to share this with you and she has told me I may share it and anything she has in web sites. However I do not identify her in this medium because she would not want the ego issues and flack.

    “There is quite a bit of material in here on the Illuminati or the word and concept thereof. Now, we do not do the conspiracist’s view of Illuminati. Simple logic tells you that what they consider “Arcane Secret Order” contains info they also will not know. So it is safe to discard these Theories.

    Simply put, an Illuminati is a Rosicrucian/Hermetic (and sometimes “other”) who has achieved a certain a certain degree and/or heights of various aspects, an enlightened individual who uses such light for his obligation towards the Universe, balancing it and making it a better place to live etc. The Order involved contains enlightenments of mind, soul and body that they will not reveal simply because “inquiring minds want to know”. One must work towards gaining this knowledge and if they have the stuff it takes then they will gain this knowledge. If a seeker doesn’t have the required prerequisites s/he is not going to be able to comprehend them anyway. This is how the info gets corrupted; misunderstanding and second and third hand info.
    *smiles gently*I take my Order(s), seriously, they are not a game nor are the applications taken lightly. Most of the questions answered on this particular subject (including Hermetics and other Arcane Orders) regarding the Sacred Mysteries and Knowledge contained herein, can be answered in one sentence: “Join a Rosicrucian/Hermetic Order and find out the answers for yourself. I have done the work why can’t you?”

    I have never seen a book on Illuminati that is accurate. Could we find a hint way in the word “Arcane”? Could the dictionary be purposely throwing the uninitiated off? Or is this definition, like with other words, born of how today’s uninitiated view? It is interesting to view a dictionary published at the turn of the century before the conspiracists and other “unhappies” who didn’t feel it necessary to do the work others have and out of covetousness, jealousy, revenge etc. helped form this newer definition which can be found in any newer dictionary.*shrugs* But they cannot touch light like this. This older definition begins with a “Church” history, those who carried the light in ritual (this in itself is interesting*grins impishly*), then to a “16th century Spanish sect who believed in “mental prayer” discarding all rituales, tools” etc (the Mass etc)*grins impishly again* “The Bavarian Illuminati founded in 1776” (and one that has taken a lot of hits and is probably the seed for many of these erroneous “theories”) “an anticlerical, deistic republican society, The Order Of The Illuminati”, and “persons who claim to have extraordinary knowledge of enlightenment; chiefly of satirical use.” Buddha is an Illuminati, The Christos is an Illuminati, Mother Theresa is certainly an Illuminati, there are a few Sacred Men in Eastern Traditions who hold this title and some in Western Trads. Even those who may be in an Order (within an Order) considered Illuminati, do not hold this distinct honor yet, but trying to work towards it, most never achieve it. Oh btw, an Illuminatis light will never die.

    Illuminatis are those illumined who know that it is their obligation to see that others are also so illumed, they do not see themselves as gaining superior enlightenment that others could never possess. They do, however provide appropriate Paths for others to gain this illumination in their lives or as much as they can possibly get in this lifetime. Anyone who says they are an illuminati is usually not one (unless you are in an Order, then you are privy to more than the uninitiated, but promise you will have to work for it.) And Illuminati does not need to be known, have his/her back patted, nor do they care to or want to. They have dealt with ego issues a long time ago.
    *smiles softly* I am not into handing out information I worked hard for, I liken this to my expertise in Siddhi/Kundalini/Ayurvedic Medicine, for which I worked hard and long to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be effective. I can’t give you a brief overview and a couple of tools and expect you to either fully understand all the dynamics and principles and send you out to heal. It takes a personal quest, study and applications as you work through different aspects.”

    “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” – Mayer Amschel Rothschild.

    Bucky Fuller said these most important words in 1981:
    ‘The U.S.A. is not run by its would-be ‘democratic’ government. All the latter can do is try to adjust to the initiatives already taken by [the] great corporations. Nothing can be more pathetic than the role that has been played by the President of the United States, whose power is approximately zero. Nevertheless, the news media and most over-thirty-years-of-age U.S.A. citizens carry on as if the president had supreme power.’

    “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” – Albert Einstein

    Einstein’s brain was being studied at McMaster University the last I heard. He had a larger area associated with what is known as dyslexia but which might just be a non-linear thinking attribute and evolution of humanity akin to what has been called Indigo Children. All adepts learn how complex systems of nature and thought make any replicable event somewhat difficult – not just the Uncertainty Principle or Schrodinger’s Cat. Those are important but another atom-mysticist by the name of Bohr described how a great truth has an opposite which is also true whereas a menial or ordinary truth has an opposite which is false. I think he called it the Rule of Complimentarity. Most people might see this is what science faces all the time and yet has different standards when it is what they call quackery. Same goes for the handle Witch doctor and such.
