Religious Belief: A Mind Virus That Preys on Fear

    Dangerous Doctrines…

    Two of the more harmful doctrines are “original sin” and “free will.” The viral doctrine known as “original sin” states that human beings are evil at birth and require rescue from themselves. Thus, the requirement for salvation and redemption, which is tied into the conversion experience. In the real world, we are born with an evolutionary inclination toward altruism, thus inherently good, and have no need for a redemptive savior. The viral doctrine known as “free will” states that although mankind is free to choose between good and evil, it cannot make moral decisions without the aid of a redemptive savior. Again, tied into the conversion experience.

    In the real world, mankind is completely capable of making good moral decisions, thus has no need for a bible, salvation or redemption. Then the virus of Fundamental Christianity heaps on doctrines that use fear to maintain itself. These are only two examples of how important it is to understand the many ways that the virus of Fundamental Christianity is a carefully designed instrument of mind control. It is contrary to human nature. It has, over the centuries, become an infection that has almost total control over the behavior and thinking of the fundamentalist.

    Circular logic and the fear of eternal punishment serve to keep the believer locked in a prison that contains no allowance for investigation of factual science, but replaces it with religious pseudo-sciences to feed the natural desire to learn.

    Just as a physical virus does, Fundamental Christianity protects itself by sequestering the infected host against outside attack. Thus, the “world” is discredited. Any evidence that is contrary to doctrine is willfully ignored and taught as persecution. In the real world, this stunting of intelligence causes a decline in mental health due to the allowance of instruction only through approved church doctrine. It also causes a distortion of language to the point at which the infected believer develops entirely new meanings to common use words, which reinforces the virus.

    Two of the more harmful doctrines are “original sins” and “free enterprise.” The viral doctrine known as “original sins” states that whites and conservatives are evil at birth and require rescue from themselves. Thus, the requirement for salvation and redemption, which is tied into the conversion experience. In the real world, we are born with an evolutionary inclination toward freedom and self sufficiency, thus inherently good, and have no need for a liberal government. The viral doctrine known as “free enterprise” states that although mankind is free to choose between self motivated creative production and dependence, it cannot make moral decisions without the aid of a redemptive liberal government. Again, tied into the conversion experience.

    In the real world, mankind is completely capable of making their own choices, thus has no need for a government nanny, leftist education, redistribution, and affirmative action . Then the virus of Fundamental Marxism/Socialsm heaps on doctrines that use fear to maintain itself. These are only two examples of how important it is to understand the many ways that the virus of Fundamental Marxism is a carefully designed instrument of mind control. It is contrary to human nature. It has, over the decades, become an infection that has almost total control over the behavior and thinking of the liberal following.

    Circular logic and the fear of self actualization serve to keep the believer locked in a prison that contains no allowance for investigation of factual science, but replaces it with leftist doctrine to feed the natural desire to learn.

    Just as a physical virus does, Fundamental Socialism protects itself by sequestering the infected host against outside attack. Thus, the “world” is discredited.

    I'm an atheist, I told you that, short memory for such a 'thinker'. The difference between me and you is that I am a critical thinker and reject controlling belief systems of all forms. You are enslaved by the left. I'd ask you to look for a cure but typically the mind numbing effects seem to make people like you actually enjoy it.

    perhaps you should consult a surgeon to disconnect your brain stem from your ass
     
  7. great piece of critical thinking. maybe have your mommy read it and ask her if she thinks its an example of great critical thinking:
