The Birth of the Modern Age: Our Only Solution

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

First of all, Islam exists because some so-called human named Mohammed rejected the impiety of Islam's preceeding sisters, Judaism and Christianity. He declared them bankrupt of faith and accused them of having forsaken God's covenant, and, in so many words, doing Satan's blasphemous work under the disguise of a long-abandoned holiness. Thus the Koran is, by fervant necessity, intolerant.

Islamism will exist as long as Jews and Christians and Moslems walk the planet together. Each believes to be the true revelation and each has shown its murderous penchant for spreading and defending that belief. Each believes to be in the divine grace of the creator of the entire universe--who spoke directly to them--to the exclusion of everyone else on the planet.

Mind you, all of these theologies are hodge-podge pastiches of astrology-based myths inherited from the previous centuries' Egyptians, Chaldeans, Babylonians, and Indians. Scratch just below the surface of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and you will see the painted-over remnants of astrology cults they replaced, most often by the blade of a sword. These three "Great Religions" would have you believe that they are unique and created by the Creator of the Universe, but this is patently false, yet they have held power for 3,500 years and have perpetrated a hoax of seemingly unpenetrable strength and breadth. But, in reality, there is no there there. They are myths starring re-named characters and concepts based on, you guessed it, the ancient Zodiac; the same zodiac that appears in your daily horoscope, and which was devised by ancient priests and shamans to explain their world and the movement of the sun, moon and stars---which they thought were gods--through the universe of which they believed the flat Earth to be the center, and their patch of sand to be that flat Earth's focal point. Things today we know to be quite ludicrous.

The answer is not in banning the Koran or advocating that Moslems become more like Jews or Christians; the answer is to begin to educate the world's children to reject astrology, to expose astrology cults in today's world, to expose the three "Great Religions" as the astrology cults that they are, to pry their death grip from around our minds, and to condemn them to the dustbin of history where the remnants of their progenitors now lie rejected and forgotten for all time. Thus will be the birth of humankind's modern age.
