Does Polytheism Make More Sense?

Published

on

Monotheism is the belief in one God, while polytheism is the belief in many gods.

After studying ancient cultures for a while, I realized that most of them were polytheistic.  Most ancient African, European, American and Asian cultures believed in many gods. They believed in the gods of wisdom, gods of wealth, gods of nature, gods of warriors and so on. Ancient folks prayed to particular gods for particular things.  If an individual wanted wealth, he would pray to the god of wealth, and if another wanted luck, he would pray to the gods of luck and good fortune.

Besides this, some ancient cultures worshipped many gods but believed in a supreme God that dominated other gods. For example, the Greeks believed Zeus was the King of Gods, but they also worshipped the other gods.

Furthermore, while studying ancient cultures, it dawned on me that polytheism is older than monotheism. Sarah Johnson agrees with me for she wrote, “polytheism is always the older or ‘primary’ and monotheism the newer or secondary type of religion (Sarah Johnson, Ancient Religions).” It, therefore, appears that monotheists borrowed the concept of God from polytheists.

However, most people believe polytheism is a form of paganism. Little do they know that the concept of one god appeared after people unified polytheistic gods into one Supreme-being. Some scholars even argue that monotheism began when Akhenaten, an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, forced Egyptians to practice monotheism. 

I’m sometimes tempted to believe polytheism makes more logical sense than monotheism. Sometimes I wonder if God can hear all our prayers, answer them, and guide all of us at the same time. Maybe it’s true, as polytheists believe, that God rules over other gods that assist him in guiding us, and listening to our prayers. It also makes sense that if one wants wisdom and wealth, she should pray to the god of wisdom and wealth, instead of praying to the King of Gods/God.

Perhaps God’s only duty is to provide life to the universe while other gods’ duties are to take care of us and guide us. Maybe we even have guardian gods that help us deal with life and fulfill our destinies.

Lastly, is it sensible to argue that all ancient cultures believed in many gods because they were primitive, or because it was logical to believe in many gods? Moreover, why did various ancient cultures which never met, coincidentally believe in many gods? Maybe it’s because these gods existed.

Anyway, the idea of many gods should be taken seriously because it might be the secret to freedom and understanding the higher realms. Maybe monotheism was created because it prevents people from realizing the true nature of the higher realms and it’s easier to control people who believe in one God.

The Top Five Harsh Truths You Must Know About Organized Religion

The Top Five Harsh Truths You Must Know About Organized Religion

‘Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.’ -Seneca

An organized religion is any religion with formally established beliefs and practices. Although organized religion is helpful, there are many harsh truths you must know about it.

Here are some of them.

1.Organized Religion is man-made

All organized religions were founded on the ideas of men who achieved higher states of consciousness. For instance, Christianity was founded on the ideas of Jesus, while Buddhism was founded on the ideas of Siddhartha Gautama, mainly known as Buddha.

2.Organized Religion is a Bully

Religion demands us to believe everything people such as Jesus, Mohammad, or Abraham taught without questioning. It wants us to blindly accept everything the Bible, Quran, and other ‘Sacred Books’ teach without questioning their validity. In the medieval age, religious leaders murdered or forced into exile the individuals who doubted the teachings of these ‘Sacred Books.’

3.The Ancient Elite Used Religion to Control the Masses

The ancient ruling classes informed people that they were God-chosen, and therefore, it was blasphemous to disrespect them. For this reason, it became easy for them to control people because the masses feared God, and they didn’t want to disrespect ‘him’ and end up in hell. Besides this, the ancient ruling classes used organized religion to bring like-minded people together and control them.

4.Organized Religion emanated from Pagan Religions

Stories almost similar to the miraculous birth of Jesus are found in ancient Pagan religions. As well, the story of Noah is present in the Sumerian religion, which was founded thousands of years before Christianity. Besides, many scholars have discovered that Pre-Islamic Arabians – who were Pagans – used the word ‘Allah’ to refer to their god.

5.Organized Religion has Caused Many Wars

In 1096 to 1291, several religious wars between Muslims and Christians occurred because both Muslims and Christians wanted to control particular holy sites. As well, during the introduction of Buddhism in the Japanese Kingdom in 552, military conflicts occurred after people resisted the spread of Buddhism. On top of that, many ancient Kings used the phrases, ‘Holy War’ and ‘Just War’ to encourage people to fight against enemy-kingdoms.

6.Religion has failed us

The main purpose of religion is to enable its followers to attain oneness with Infinite Intelligence. Organized religions have thus failed us because our religious leaders seldom teach us about attaining oneness with the Creator. Instead, they focus on teaching about sin and paradise.

Furthermore, organized religion has failed us because there are high levels of crime, hate, violence, and many other unrighteous behaviors despite the increase in the number of modern religious organizations.

How the Illuminati/Elite Tricked You into Buying Useless Things

Published

on

Since the beginning of industrialization, the Illuminati/Elite owned most of the world’s largest corporations and they strived to make the masses buy lots of stuff from them. They worked on devising methods of attracting the masses to their companies, and they discovered effective methods in the 20th century.

For instance, they discovered the power of associating their products with famous individuals. They used celebrities to advertise their products and people started buying products not because they needed them, but because they wanted to be seen with them.

The elite then popularized the idea that certain products raised an individual’s status hence resulting in several people buying them even when they didn’t need them. People started buying diamond watches, Gucci shoes, and Louis Vuitton bags because they believed these products would enable them to attain a higher social position than their friends and neighbors.

The Illuminati then introduced fashion by popularizing the idea that the most important individuals in the society were those who bought fashionable products. They then used celebrities to popularize particular fashions during particular periods. As well, they ensured the fashionable products got outdated quickly so that people regularly disposed them of – even when they were still useful – to purchase more fashionable goods.

These strategies resulted in several people becoming obsessed with the idea that their material possessions determined their social status, and for this reason, they kept buying useless things just to attain a higher social status. Moreover, many people started preferring non-durable products over durable ones just because they were fashionable, and they kept buying products to keep up with the latest trend.

The elite’s strategy is still working today because most of us still purchase useless products to boost our social status.  For instance, although we need a 32-inch TV set, we buy a 70-inch TV set because we want to align with the latest fashion and boost our social status. We buy expensive and useless products despite being aware of the presence of cheap products that perform the same functions as the expensive ones. We then resale the expensive products at a low price so that we buy more fashionable products and gain a higher social status.

Although we think we are boosting our social status with these things, we are mainly wasting our money and filling the pockets of the elite, who seldom care about the stuff they sell to us. The elite mostly care about awakening their psychic powers and abilities. Also, they usually spend their money on uncovering hidden esoteric teachings and artifacts that enlighten them about our true origin.

Having said that, I think it’s time we stopped buying some products just because we want to boost our social status. We must spend our money on personal development, traveling, and having fun with the people we love, instead of wasting it on useless stuff.

Thanks for Reading. May you be enlightened forever.
