THE SELF DELUSION OR THE GOD DELUSION:
The seven faces of Man and God,
as read by Richard Dawkins

Printable Version

The following is a set of notes prepared while reading The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. The objective of the review is to record the basic logical errors that “create” atheistic dogma from erroneous assumptions. Dawkins is a preeminently astute logician. However, rational logic is not gnosis; it is the process of the consorts of Seth and the Lords of Xibalba who would send human experience in a perfect fitting box of rationalizations down a stream of consciousness guided by selfish and defensive purposes for usurpation and fratricide of Divine Perception as it has been recorded by those who experienced self revelation within a Universal Light. Atheism does not exist until a theist declares a Divine Perception. On that alone are atheists conceived.

THE GOD DELUSION
 
CHAPTER 2: THE GOD HYPOTHESIS
 
The religion of one age is the
literary entertainment of the next.
- RALPH WALDO EMERSON

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. Those of us schooled from infancy in his ways can become desensitized to their horror. A naif blessed with the perspective of innocence has a clearer perception. Winston Churchill's son Randolph somehow contrived to remain ignorant of scripture until Evelyn Waugh and a brother officer, in a vain attempt to keep Churchill quiet when they were posted together during the war, bet him he couldn't read the entire Bible in a fortnight: 'Unhappily it has not had the result we hoped. He has never read any of it before and is hideously excited; keeps reading quotations aloud "I say I bet you didn't know this came in the Bible ..." or merely slapping his side & chortling "God, isn't God a shit!" '16 Thomas Jefferson-better read-was of a similar opinion, describing the God of Moses as 'a being of terrific character - cruel, vindictive, capricious and unjust'.
 
It is unfair to attack such an easy target. The God Hypothesis should not stand or fall with its most unlovely instantiation, Yahweh, nor his insipidly opposite Christian face, 'Gentle Jesus meek and mild'. (To be fair, this milksop persona owes more to his Victorian followers than to Jesus himself. Could anything be more mawkishly nauseating than Mrs. C. F. Alexander's 'Christian children all must be / Mild, obedient, good as he'?) I am not attacking the particular qualities of Yahweh, or Jesus, or, Allah, or any other specific god such as Baal, Zeus or Wotan. Instead I shall define the God Hypothesis more defensibly: there exists a superhuman, supernatural intelligence who deliberately designed and created the universe and everything in it, including us. This book will advocate an alternative view: any creative intelligence, of sufficient complexity to design anything, comes into existence only as the end product of an extended process of gradual evolution. Creative intelligences, being evolved, necessarily arrive late in the universe, and therefore cannot be responsible for designing it. God, in the sense defined, is a delusion; and, as later chapters will show, a pernicious delusion.
 
Not surprisingly, since it is founded on local traditions of private revelation rather than evidence, the God Hypothesis comes in many versions. Historians of religion recognize a progression from primitive tribal animisms, through polytheisms such as those of the Greeks, Romans and Norsemen, to monotheisms such as Judaism and its derivatives, Christianity and Islam.
 

It does not take a psychiatrist to see that Dawkins is acting as a “creator” in conceiving a set of false hypotheses upon which any reader who walks by without judgment will be tricked like Hun Hunaphu and Seven Hunaphu were by the Lords of Xibalba in the Popol Vuh, or like Osiris was tricked into a Perfect Fitting Box by his brother Seth in the Chapters of Coming Forth By Day.
 
The fundamental purpose of any religion is to prepare the children of tomorrow for the temptations of logic that will trap any naïf who desires to believe in a personal self absent of any Aboriginal revelation. Religion is a process of reestablishing the ligatures of reality to the organism that desires “free will” above all other desires. The irony of all atheistic and free thinking dogma is that it seeks “free will” while it destroys what was given by the Creator of the Universe. If the Creator had intended all creatures to be puppets, then “free will” would not be a possibility. “Free will” is not an option for life, it is a given. To fight for “free will” requires that we assume that it has been taken away. That is precisely where Dawkins begins his diatribe of The Self Delusion. The Creator of the Universe gave Dawkins “free will” and Dawkins usurped that gift as a self endowment. The God Delusion is that Dawkins is the “One True God.”
 
In the material universe there can be no free will, for all substance must be bound by the laws of substance. In the organic world all living substance must be bound by the nature of organisms. In the mental world all logic must be bound by truth or the logic does not exist, rather the organism is lost in an abysmal state without truth consciousness. In the spirit world there exists the potential for free will. Dawkins and all “free thinkers”—Sethians, Lords of Xibalba, etc.— do not live in the spirit world and because of that the lives they live are chaos without ligatures to The Greater Reality. There is a God delusion, of that there can be no true doubt. But, the delusion is that God, the “I Am” is not.
 
God is not simply a pantheistic philosophy, for the potential and the experience of self revelation is proof of the “I Am That I Am.” The self revelation, the personal “I Am,” is simply the process whereby the substance, the organism, and the mind come to a realization that the Spirit of Creation is Truth and it is the Greater Reality. We are free from the acceptance of truth. Yet, when we accept the revelation of truth we are set free in the Greater Reality called Heaven, the abode of the Creator, Universal Truth.
 
The ultimate test of any logic is whether the logic binds the spirit or sets it free. When the spirit is set free, it comes out of the bondage of the tomb of a dead spirit and is reincarnated in the organism by the Word of God. Logic, when it is truth, is the Word of God. Dogma, whether from the religion of revealed ancestors or the rational logic of free thinkers is just the ligatures between the organism and a spirit of truth that tugs on the heart strings of a naif’s mind. Dawkins hides the spirit of truth from himself and from his readers as he attempts to destroy the experiences of the First Fathers whom he has no ligatures to remind him that they were speaking of what they saw. The truth never needs to be defended, because the truth is the foundation of all existence, whether material, organic, or dream. These three, trapped in the spirit of darkness fail to reveal The Self Delusion because they defend falsehoods in a game of survival.
 
Dawkins gave us enough information to hang him. So, let us proceed with the disincarnating of Richard Dawkins and The God Delusion.
 
The God Hypothesis: there exists a superhuman, supernatural intelligence who deliberately designed and created the universe and everything in it, including us.
 
This is a simple hypothesis and the only thing we need to realize it is to understand that “what is” is superior when compared to what is seeking “what is.” If the seeker were superior, then it would be a truth that superhuman and supernatural essence would be impossible. If the seeker is creating intelligence as it evolves, then the god is the self created intelligence. This self created intelligence must, therefore, evolve from ignorance. The quandary then is how, or when, does ignorance become intelligence. To answer this enigma we have the dogma of Dawkins.
 
God Hypothesis alternative view: any creative intelligence, of sufficient complexity to design anything, comes into existence only as the end product of an extended process of gradual evolution.
 
It is vitally important to understand the greatest trick of Xibalba. What Dawkins is saying is that substance is not intelligence. Organism is not intelligence. Rationalizations are intelligent if they have precedents that evolve from low to higher rational essence. If a rationalization devolves then that is not intelligent. Thus, with this dogma we cannot have intelligence until the End of Time, and then only if the intelligence evolves in a growing spiral of greater intelligence. This is not the process of intelligence. It is the process of knowledge. Knowledge does not have to be truth because the spirit of knowledge can be false. No matter how long false knowledge evolves the consequence is falsehood, not truth. Falsehood is the spirit of truth in a tomb of the perfect fitting box of rationalizing discourse. The falsehood does not exist, it is just the ghost of truth that has yet to be reincarnated.
 
Let us consider the “great” Greek philosopher Thales. According to the rational record Thales was a scientist who determined how to measure the height of the Great Pyramid by the comparison of the shadows of a stick and the pyramid. For this act of evolved intelligence Thales became a primordial father of the Greek sciences, from which we now have the title Doctor of Philosophy.
 
According to Dawkins, that is the only means for intelligence to exist. It must evolve from the ignorance of the height of the Great Pyramid. Whatever the Egyptians had when they designed the Great Pyramid Complex before they created it was not intelligence. This is so crucial a point, that human civilizations have understood the fundamental need to establish a form of ligature to the Aborigine who created the civilization and the Cosmic First Father who was the First Intender that the personal revelation of the Aborigine be inspired revelation. Dawkins plays God and curses little children. That 'Christian children all must be / Mild, obedient, good as he' is mawkishly nauseating.
 
All religions are about restoring the intent of a mortal First Father who had acquired a personal revelation from an immortal First Father and added memory of revelation to the record of experience every generation. But, the moment of the first occasion was the most intelligent move of mankind. On that occasion mankind chose to believe in the Spirit of Truth. That was the essence that Seth put into a “perfect fitting box” when he usurped the First Kingdom of Egypt and sent his brother down a stream of consciousness to oblivion. Thousands of years passed and many theologians witnessed the Fall of Man. Each culture of any renown denied the “perfect fitting box” should be the destination of the “spirit of truth.” They declared that the “spirit of truth” would return from the grave of the patricide of rationalizing man. In what can easily be argued as the most “evolved” of religious intelligence regarding the nature of God, we have Yahweh’s insipidly opposite Christian face of the milksop persona of 'Gentle Jesus meek and mild' who “cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.”

John 11:39-44 (King James Version)
 39Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
 40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
 41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
 42And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
 43And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
 44And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

Dawkins prepares the “naïf” for the slaughter just like arrogant Lords of Xibalba who came before him. Knowing not how to restore the “spirit of truth” requires that Dawkins plead ignorance of the “spirit of truth” and then defends his ignorance by the dogma “any creative intelligence, of sufficient complexity to design anything, comes into existence only as the end product of an extended process of gradual evolution.” Dawkins expects truth to come.


Venus of Willendorf

Had Dawkins desired the “spirit of truth” he would have come out of the grave he dug for his own essence of being, i.e., his own soul. The Lords of Xibalba are all tricksters and they desire to bury the past in a chaos of ignorance as they create ignorance for the future. The year 2012, is within twelve years of the prophesy of the return of the Spirit of Truth that was a milksop persona, not only to Victorian England but to the Magdalenian Venus of Willendorf (24-22,000 BC), to declare the virtue of motherhood and the abundance of Mother Nature. Dawkins cannot destroy the Spirit of Truth, but he and the 72 Cohorts of Seth can deny the children of tomorrow the love of parents long departed who experienced the personal revelation that Intelligence was before man became man.
