|Religion the big lie|
Chapter 4 & 5 of Life today the Real Story
I will tell you unequivocally that this is not theory. This is 100% fact. No matter what your religious beliefs are, you to will see the facts, and believe. However incomplete, hold onto your faith because it is true and necessary.
As I was saying earlier, when I started doing the research to give credence to, and back up my thought process, and theories. I was absolutely astounded to find that every great philosopher, astronomer, and thinking man, in the history of the civilized world has to a smaller, or larger, degree, agreed with me.
They had hit the nail on the head. However they never had the opportunity to put the whole story together. As to God, life, the planet, the universe, and mans origin and role in all this.
These men have all been ostracized for their beliefs. They were loathed. They were thought of as atheists. They were imprisoned and yes, even killed. All this for corrupting the minds of the youth, as happened in Socrates case.
Socrates too, was a thinking man. He saw thought as a process of recollection. Something we had always known, but had just forgotten. Aristotle was the first to see the importance of logical reasoning. This attribute is something that is very important and very rare today indeed.
Aristotle was convinced that it was possible to arrive at an understanding of the universe by applying the principle of logical reasoning. This is absolutely true, but in my case it took both, logical and inductive reasoning. He also, as many of us do, had an acute understanding of Religion, and mythology. He believed we were one.
One and the same with nature, God, and the universe so beautiful and so true. Take all you know and are learning now, and take some time to stop and think about it, put it all into perspective.
Carrying it further, Plato, like Aristotle, another great Greek philosopher, sometimes defended Socrates and sometimes had his own ideas. He carried Socrates beliefs even further. He was getting even closer to the whole picture.
Plato, like Socrates, had also been Religious about his philosophy. They found that their scientific and speculative reasoning had inspired them with a vision of the full glory of the universe, don’t you just love it. Plato’s beliefs would help him to realize his true self. This happened by freeing his soul from his body and enabling him to ascend to the divine world.
He believed the one true God is from where all existence was derived from because of its pure being. He believed that the eternal aspects of our universe came from the one God. This in turn animated the sun, the moon, and the star. Thus, this put each of these in their perspective alignments, interesting. Installment 4 tomorrow
