Dichotomy

From a sociopath reader:
I've been thinking about this for a long time. There's a dichotomy that almost seems to be a contradiction in the way I feel. These are like two sides of a coin, opposite, but neither could exist without the other. These are my views of the world, and how I fit into it. 
The first is the macro-view, where I see everything from so far away that people turn into little specs barely visible to the eye. Humanity as a whole becomes completely insignificant. Even the infinite, God, the universe, and everything, shrink into irrelevance. I float in a void. An empty vacuous abyss. There's nothing around me. I have no body, there are no sounds, no feeling - I'm neither hot nor cold, because I don't feel. I'm purely an entity, observing from the beyond, and the only thing to observe are the little people, their god, their society, their universe, off in the distance, like a child watching ants in their colony. 
When I'm in the void, I'm separated from humanity, and I look down from the outside. I'm no longer part of this, but an outsider. The world shifts from first person to third person. 
The second view is micro-view, where I penetrate so deeply into the world that I see everything in extreme detail. Like in the movies when Peter Parker first wakes up the day after being bitten, or when somebody becomes a werewolf. All of my senses become hyper-acute. I no longer focus directly at anything, and instead let my vision widen. I see things with my subconscious, and anticipate actions before their required - as if I've shifted backwards a brief glimpse in time. When I feel like this, the world becomes very organic and material. I reach out and touch things, and absorb the sensations. I feel the power in my body. I sense people's emotions and reactions. I feel the intense pleasures and pains in my own body. 
I think I'm a dichotomy of emotions and this physical body. I feel no traditional empathy for these people, and I don't feel like I'm in the same sphere emotionally or spiritually. I have a deep intellectual understanding of these ideas, maybe more so than most people, but for me, they're mere philosophical concepts. I've attempted to seek spirituality, but all I've come up with are formulas. Possible algorithms, like solutions to a problem in programming to explain it all. Open mindedness is the greatest of all forms of disbelief, and I'm non-committal to the point of exasperation. 
Despite this, I am here and now in the flesh. Despite the philosophical constructs I build up to entertain myself, the present feels very real and very - present. Despite the emotional crevice between me and others, I'm not unaware of their emotions, and I soak them up like a thirsty sponge. Part of my mind is infinitely distant, while the other part is infinitely close. I crave her flesh. I crave the pain, and the orgasmic rush of wrath. 
I feel like this dichotomy, although opposite, is at it's core, one in the same. Just like a buddhist monk, who experiences the infinite beauty of world through utterly forgoing human desire, I feel much the same. This isn't simple emotional distance, but a glimpse of how the infinitely far is also infinitely near. At the exact same time, at any one time in all of eternity, I'm both completely outside of everything, and deep inside of her soul. I'm both the darkness in the beyond, and a flesh eating virus consuming her from within.

  3. Thats exactly how I think!
    My husband makes fun of my concepts on the infinite and my struggle with the balance between trying to stay grounded in time and space and constantly knowing and feeling the level of the infinite. the spiritual vastness that exists beside our material self is like opposing universes or dimensions that function dually and dependently on each other. They're bound by different laws, but bound to each other... like the stones in mirror mask. But in one dimension, the boundaries of time and space don't exist. In the other dimension the boundaries of science and material cause the world to function. Both seek ways to communicate to the other dimension by their own rules and boundaries, and so we end up with symbols in both dimensions. Such as language, men and women, and other polarities or images to convey what goes on in each half, if you will...
    This is where my crazy starts to come out. I think we've been going too far down philosophical paths in recent conversations and posts.

  6. I've been called deep before, but most of what crosses my mind is nothing extraordinary, progressive, or special. I just analyze what's around me to sometimes obessive degrees.

    I just don't give a fuck about things that don't interest or apply to me. The universe is fucking huge? So what? How does that impact anyone as of now?

    When I look up at the night's sky, I see pretty lights and a small measure of hope that I'll get to go up there someday before I die. I can't even fathom the existential crisis about thinking about the infinite. Why would that effect anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  7. We have understandings of these like duality... the point is to pinpoint and define aspects of it we don't yet understand. Everything I think so far is generally understood by some... a few. I'd like to study quantum physics. I think that has new information on the functional levels of both dimensions.

  8. Let me word that better... we have natural understandings of things we cannot yet name or define. They can't yet become tangible until someone "discovers" them. I'd like to discover so thing symbolic.

    then i would ask where your grandiose self perception come from? if you have a respect for science and truth, then your values would nag at you. if you were to magically think you were highly superior to others, it would say, be realistic humble yourself. this is were psychopaths seem to fail.

    @Anon: Is my self-perception grandiose? I'm pretty great, all in all. And I don't know where you got this idea that I have values, but I'll fight the rapscallion who gave it to you.~

    Magical thinking is typical of narcissistic, schizotypal, and borderline personalities. I do not doubt that I have significant narcissistic tendencies nor that I sometimes give myself too much credit for how thing unfold. But why worry about it?

  29. "Keep in mind that people with pds are basically children. We might be really bright (some of us anyway) but we're still immature."



    I have been trying to get behind the eyes of certain PD's, to understand what happened to me. I must understand things at a deep level and relate them to myself before I let them go, it seems. I am talking about trying to understand the people with PD's who hurt me.

    I would really like to know whether you feel the above statement, on the Twitter is true?

    I guess the underlying assumption is that the person with the PD stopped maturing and the ones without the PD's kept maturing. I can kind of see this, with my own life, in that I have new challenges now that are forcing me to mature. If I was totally stuck, I would not mature i.e. grow and change. I would just recycle the same stuff around to different spaces.


    If you take a substance to take away pain, I think you may not be forced to grow i.e. develop new constructs to deal with the pain i.e. go out of your old box.

    Borderlines bother me. I've met very few and find them a whole new kind of crazy. I knew a great girl I'd call borderline, but I'd never never never never date her or make a committed friendship to her. You could tell she could lose it at any moment and be your worst enemy. But when we knew her she was amazingly amusing. She had nonchalant stories about nearly stabbing people for not liking her bacon.
    But the borderlines here seem to be more whiny about why they hate their horrible relationships, and go on about how difficult they find it to function. Borderlines shouldn't and don't try to function, I don't think. They more throw firecrackers into crowds and see who jumps. For them it always seems about stirring up more shit, causing more drama, and justifying new angles.

  42. Sorry to be so blunt and rude kanney, but I can't shake the fact I strongly suspect you're another Ukan mask. I give you credit for being a little versatile in your role play but I don't see the point, your fundamental prejudices remain in every role you play.

    On to more interesting matters, this post is very interesting. It seems to come from someone who is a deep 'feeler' and yet interestingly, they call themself a sociopath. It's pretty much exactly how I experience the world.

    'Open mindedness is the greatest of all forms of disbelief, and I'm non-committal to the point of exasperation.'

    Yes, I know what you mean. You can be open minded and yet non-commital and sceptical at the same time.
    It's funny, how you describe your experience is very reminiscent of how I experience dissociation. Also, I can become overwhelmed by the sense of the infinite quite easily and the way you describe your detachment, and the silliness of everything, very similar.

    The only thing you said I experience differently, is that you feel the present is very real. For me, I slip in and out of that feeling.

    I really enjoyed this post. Lol, the magical thinking thing people are talking about is funny. I met a couple narcs. The kind who think they can control the universe as well as change me. I couldn't help feeling a little superior in that case, however, one of them entertained me enough (intense relationship) that I tolerated his flights of fancy. He literally trained himself to 'control' other people's actions. He'd close his eyes and I'd say, 'you're trying to get me to do something right now aren't you?' LOL, it was more cute than dumb back then. I felt like an unimaginative fool when he'd do that shit, making it out like I was the crazy one for not beleiving in his ideas. Lol I don't know why i attract such people. For the purposes of balance, another somatic narc i knew was not into such things. But still, it's pretty funny to think about.

  44. That's not the sort of magical thinking common to narcs. It usually manifests with them thinking they are constantly right, even when blatantly defeated. I'm the best at every sport, I'm the smartest person in the universe blah blah. For them to admit to being wrong would be too much for their ego. They think that they are worthless, if they are not number one.

  52. Demon is the name I use on every forum except PsychForums. I use to use the Demon name there as well. I left the forum for awhile, then when I came back I decided I liked the name Iniquity better, so I started using it instead. It's just a username, but if you want to tie it to anything, I used to be a Satanist and that's when I started using the name Demon online. I'm not a Satanist anymore, but I just kept using this name anyway.
    I hardly think it matters what a username represents. It's just a username. In all honesty, when I first registered, I was considering using the name Iniquity. Not that it would make any difference to the Demon one. Iniquity means wicked

But then again, as I recall you said that it was hardly possible for someone to be both an artist and a scientist after all.

  72. For me, I don't think I've been way far out delusionally grandiose as an adult. I grew up despising my father's delusions and magical thinking. I had to be the adult growing up and stay grounded in reality.

    I really hated him for that, and all the hell his NPD put me through. He was just as delusional on his deathbed. He thought God was coming for him in a fiery chariot. For what? Being a shitty father? Not holding down a job? Scorning all of his lovers?

    I wish I could say I didn't understand him and his fucked up fantasy, but he made me live in the middle of it.

  74. Re: magical thinking: Tik, I never called myself a satanist (it is a common misconception that satanists believe in the devil) but I was very involved in the occult at one point in my life. I was a Crowley fan and used to read a lot of his crap, as well as material from the Order of the Golden Dawn. I have an extensive knowledge of occult symbolism.

    When I was younger, my psychopathic traits were much more pronounced. When I started researching psychopathy, I was struck by how well this characteristic suited my former mindset! I was a real piece of work back then. I invented bizarre, hate-filled rituals directed at the people I wanted to hurt- on those occasions I didn’t actually physically hurt them. I really believed I could influence what happened to them. By some twist of fate or coincidence, horrible things *did* sometimes occur in the lives of my targets (not much of a stretch, considering the types I hung out with back then) and I would secretly revel in my “power” over them.

    As I grew out of my adolescence, I began to recognize all that magick mumbo jumbo for the garbage it really is. (That phase of my life always makes me think of Frank Zappa’s “Cosmic Debris”... “But I’ve got the Crystal Ball…” LOL!)

    I know there are some here who will dismiss my Christianity, and hence everything I have to say, because they think I am deluded or intellectually weak. But I have a very rational approach to my faith: I have studied the historicity and archeological underpinnings of the Bible, as well as the parallels of various narratives within the context of comparative ancient mythology. I have also studied certain philosophical constructs, as well as topics at the cutting edge of science, including bioinformatics and quantum theory. For a layperson, my scientific knowledge is fairly good. (And for the record, I am not a young-earth creationist… but I’m still spechul, TCO! ;)

    In short, my faith is informed. Someone might think that my robust faith in Christianity is just a sublimation of strong magical thinking tendencies into a socially accepted format. I cannot really disprove that. (If that’s true, more psychos should rely on magical thinking, because it seems to work a lot better than therapy!!) But you will know a tree by the fruit it bears, and “wisdom is vindicated by all her children”.(Luke 7:34)I stand on that.

    I’ll only know for sure in when I die. Yet this I will say: if I’m wrong, I did well for myself, and if I’m right, I REALLY did well for myself!

    But if you’re wrong, where does that leave you? You'll die someday too.

    :)

  79. I appreciate what this post Reader had to say. I used to lie outside at night with my feet dangling up into the sky and hope gravity failed so I could fall up into the vacuum, imagining the worlds rushing by. Every star, every darkness behind every star... what's beyond it all, so far removed in time that it's gone before we even know it's there. Everything is inconsequential. Meaning must be found withing. Things only have the value that we bestow on them.

    This is why it's so hard for me to think about death. It's an endless, permanent void. Contemplating the void is like falling inward endlessly. Suffocating. It makes me panic.

    it's the not thinking about it that will affect you.

    you pretty much have to stop the thinking, and disappear, become part of the infinite. the crisis happens afterward when the mind struggles to understand the experience, as the mind always must.

    Why do you blame God for human stupidity and callousness? When I indulge my self-destructive tendencies, God has nothing to do with it.

    @Haven: The rewards can come in the here and now. I am living proof of this. (But of course, that's just a product of magical thinking. ;)

    Ignoring your mortality does nothing to mitigate it. There is something much more productive you can do about it than that.

    When shit hits the fan, it's all God's fault. But when people testify to how God has changed their lives, they're full of shit.

    Or something like that. :)

    If someone is going to follow that logic, it makes more sense to think that everything originates with people.

    When I change, it is because God empowers me, not because the Magic Sky Fairy waved his wand and granted me a special favor.

My stomach clenched and I was brought nearly to tears of sadness and fury for this woman that I've never met, for this woman that I do not share the same problems. Her experience is a violation of basic human rights. No woman, no person, should ever have to experience this. I wanted to jump through my monitor and defend her with my own hands, even though I have no idea who she is. And I would have too.

  93. A beheading is far worse. There's help for the living. There's someone left to feel for. Once they're dead they're gone and there's no life left to mourn.

  95. I can watch that video and feel nothing whatsoever. It is distasteful, but it provokes nothing like the reaction you describe in me.

    I won't watch the whole thing because I understand that it is evil and horrible. But I can't empathize with the victims. I can watch that guy sawing off another person's head without my stomach so much as churning once.

  100. There are 30,000+ gods, goddesses, and other forms of major and minor deities, demigods, and hundreds of thousands of various other paranormal creatures dreamed up by man in the last 150,000 years and you have such hubris to believe that your "Jesus", a newcomer on the block, is the "Right" god? That is HIGHLY illogical.

  101. Notme, why do I feel half bpd and half either sociopath or narcissist when I am also pretty humble? Inside I have a grandiose sense of self worth. I'm pretty sure I do. I often times feel others just aren't as good as I am. Many times it is delusional, I have to admit. May I ask if there are others who feel this way here? I also feel callous, and sometimes I think I am just pissed. Other times I think I'm hard. I have been such an ass at times. I try really hard to adjust my brain, but I will be honest and say that I don't care about a lot of people. I am removed and sympathetic but I can not feel empathy for some. In fact, I feel disdain for weakness and I also don't believe in guilt. What the fuck is wrong with me? I know there are people here who feel like me. It is as if I am divided. Often times I do feel paranoid. I am totally aware of my brain and how I process things, and I think I am wrong to be like this. But I have been this way for a really long time. Notme do you feel like me? Is there anyone here who feels like me, divided half and half?

    (fearlessness to the point of absurdity, emotional callousness, a history of lying, stealing, manipulating, truancy, extreme adrenaline seeking, violence... etc. etc.)

    I was formally diagnosed with ODD as a teen, but I lied to my shrink all the time. I never felt remotely guity for any of that.

  108. Science has liberated the people who once called themselves Christians to new levels of understanding that renders the whole belief and religious path as futile and out dated.

    Most of us have a great interest in knowing how we have been duped for so long. Others will admit they are atheist and then the Christians attack; what about Pasquale's Wager, what about the cosmological Argument, what about the blind watchmaker, what about irreducible complexity? And much much more!

    Atheists are put in the position of attempting to validate their position because most of the people around us are Christian. Atheists have to know more than Christians, less they sound just like them.

    Most atheists that I know were once Christian. It was studying the bible that turned them away from religion. The more you know about the bible, the less hold it has over you.

    So that makes you an idiot Alterego, and a delusional skydaddy believer.

    ReplyDelete
  116. The demonization of other religions, e.g. Christianity demonizing Pagans ("They're devil-worshippers!"), the Romans demonizing Christians ("They're atheists and cannibals!").

    Vilification of homosexuality, resulting in discrimination, parents disowning their children, murder, and suicide.

    People and animals sacrificed as an offering to gods.

    Food destroyed because it doesn't comply with specific religious beliefs.

    Women treated like second class citizens, or even slaves, based on religious teachings.

    Children growing up without music.

    Children growing up to hate and fear science and scientists, because science disproves their parents' religion - leading to appalling scientific illiteracy.

    Tens of thousands tortured and killed as witches (a practice which still continues today).

    Millions of cats killed in the belief that witches use them as familiars, leaving rats free to spread the black death throughout Europe, killing millions of people in turn.

    People bothered and sometimes woken up by door-to-door religion salespeople.

    People dying because they believe their faith makes them immune to snake venom, or other lethal aspects of reality.

    People dying - and letting their children die - because their religion forbids accepting medical help.

    People choked, starved, poisoned, or beaten to death during exorcisms.

    Female genital mutilation endorsed by religious texts.

    Psychological and physiological conditions blamed on demons, preventing believers from seeking medical care.

    People disowning family members for leaving their religion, in some cases symbolized by mock funerals.

    Friendships and romances severed or never started over religious differences.

    "Abstinence-only" sex education, resulting in five times the amount sexually transmitted diseases and teenage pregnancies - often leading to ill-fated "emergency" marriages.

    Campaigns against safe sex, with similar results - responsible for much of the AIDS epidemic in Africa.

    Women having septic abortions -- or being forced to have unwanted children they resent -- because religious organizations have gotten laws passed making abortion illegal or inaccessible.

    Censorship (often destructive) of speech, art, books, music, films, poetry, songs and, if possible, thought.

    The discouragement of rational, critical thought.

    Believers whipping, impaling, poisoning or crucifying themselves during religious festivals as a demonstration of their faith and piety.

    Children spending the period of their lives when the brain is most receptive to learning new information reading, rereading, and even memorizing religious texts.

    People who believe the world is about to end neglect their education, are not financially responsible, and in extreme cases take part in mass suicides.

    Environmental issues ignored because of beliefs that God will magically fix everything.

    Wives told they will be tortured forever if they leave their abusive husbands.

    People in times of trouble relying on advice from religious leaders without any sort of training in counseling or therapy.

    Holy wars - followers of different faiths (or even the same faith) killing each other in the name of their (benevolent, loving and merciful) gods.

    The destruction of great works of art considered to be pornographic/blasphemous, and the persecution of the artists.

    Persecution/punishment of blasphemers (Salman Rushdie still has a death sentence on him), and blasphemy laws in general.

    Slavery condoned by religious texts.

    Children traumatized by vivid stories of eternal burning and torture to ensure that they'll be too frightened to even question religion.

  117. Terminal patients in constant agony who would end their lives if they didn't believe it would result in eternal torture.

    School boards having to spend time and money and resources on the fight to have evolution taught in the schools.

    Persecution of Heretics/scientists, like Giordano Bruno (burned at the stake) and Galileo Galilei.

    Blue laws forcing other businesses to stay closed so churches can generate more revenue.

    Mayors, senators, and presidents voted into office not because they're right for the job, but because of their religious beliefs.

    Abuse of power, authority and trust by religious leaders (for financial gain or sexual abuse of followers and even children) - but hey, atheists are the immoral ones.

    People accepting visual and auditory hallucinations unquestioningly as divine, sometimes with fatal results.

    Suicide bombers, who are certain they will be rewarded in heaven.

    Discrimination against atheists, such as laws stating they may not hold public office or testify in court.

    Missionaries destroying/converting smaller, "heathen" religions and cultures.

    Hardship compounded by the guilt required to reconcile the idea of a fair god with reality ("why is God punishing me? What have I done wrong? Don't I have enough faith?").
    Source(s):
    Mother Teresa, prolonging the agony of terminal patients and denying them pain relief, so she can offer their suffering as a gift to her god.

    Suppression of logical and critical thought.

    Billions spent to build, maintain, and staff houses of worship.

  120. Unfortunately, it is the majority of Christians that have not read the Bible. Anyone who has read the Bible has to come to one of three conclusions:
    1)It is correct in its entirety.
    2)Parts are correct and parts are incorrect (Cherry-pick the bits you like)
    3)The Bible is utter rubbish and does more harm than good.

    Fundamentalist Christians will generally take position 1. Most fundamentalist Christians will have read the Bible fully and take it literally. A few Christians will have read the Bible and have been forced to accept that position 2 is correct. These people will often have to go to other Theists for help with the parts they don't like and will be told that they are symbolic and not to be taken literally. Position 3 is generally held by non-Christians and any Christian that come to position 3 generally becomes a non-Christian. Whenever you read the Bible, you risk arriving at position 3, however you need to be of special mind to arrive at position 1 or 2.

    The average Christian does not even go to church each week. Statistically, there are not enough pews to seat all the people who claim to be Christian.

    Here is a simple test you can do yourself. Take a survey to the streets and ask questions about the Bible that are not so palatable like "Would you ever stone your child to death?" and "Would you ever stone someone else's child to death?" If the answer is "No." then ask if they have read the Bible. The Bible is really clear on the subject. There are lots of other such parts like being allowed to beat your slave to death as long as he doesn't die straight away. I have heard people say that that was taken out of context and that the slaves were more like servants (that you could beat to death?)

    Unfortunately, it is not just the "one" Christian, there are millions of them and they want to impose the Bible on the rest of us without having read the thing themselves.

  122. Academia states that in the absence of proof of the existence of something it must be deemed not to exist until verifiable proof is found - thus god is held not to exist pending some sort of verifiable evidence.

    There is not one single mention of Jesus in the entire Roman record - that is right - not one!!! At the same time as he was supposed to have been around there were a number of Jews claiming to be the messiah - all of whom are well recorded!!

    There is not a single contemporary record from any source and even the bible mentions of him like all other references were not written until many years after his supposed death!!

    He was supposed to have been a huge problem to the Romans and produced wonderful miracles but still not one contemporary record?

    Even the bible mentions of him like all other references were not written until many years after his supposed death!!

    Pilate is recorded in the Roman record as a somewhat lack luster man but no mention of a Jesus, a trial or crucifixion that would surely have been used to make him look brighter!!

    At best he was an amalgam of those others!!

    The Roman Emperor Constantine produced the bible and he was a pagan not god!!! He also organized Christianity into the Holly Roman Catholic Church!! Not in Israel or any of the countries of supposed origin but entirely ITALIAN!!

    Not one word of it is contemporary with the period and was not written until several hundred years after the period the story is set in!! How did the apostles write their books more than a hundred years after they would have been dead?

    What a wonder full disinformation and deception campaign he waged against his Christian enemies - so good in fact that Christians are still following the deception to this day!!!

    The first person to provide a shred of verifiable evidence for God will become world famous and mega rich!! Ain't happened yet and it never will!!

    So how does this primitive belief survive? The answer is simple and very down to Earth!!

    Acceptance of a supernatural claim tends to promote cooperative social relationships. This communication demonstrates a willingness to accept, without skepticism, the influence of the speaker in a way similar to a child's acceptance of the influence of a parent. By encouraging this kind of behavior where the most intense social relationships occur it facilitates the lack of skepticism and deters more open minded thinking.

    They are christian, Muslim or the other religions depending where they were born simply because they were indoctrinated by their parents as very young children. They will go on to indoctrinate their own children and those will go on to indoctrinate their grandchildren!!

    Atheists have the intellect to see through the conditioning and escape into the real world!!

    Agnostics have the intellect to see through the conditioning but lack the courage to throw of the conditioning entirely.

    Sadly Christians are still held firmly prisoner by the self perpetuating brainwashing!!

  140. @Bella … I’ll actually be talking about my experience with this stuff on my blog over the upcoming week. You sound dissociated from your emotions at times (is what my Therapist would probably say).
    I have no grandiose sense of Self though I would choose my own life over anyone else’s (with one exception). I think most people are functionally worthless but I don’t necessarily think that I am better than anyone else either. I also detest weakness in others, but probably moreso in myself. I can be very, very empathic. But I can also be extremely callous and insensitive (especially if I’m pissed off). I can be absolutely void of any empathy, sympathy, or caring … again my Therapist would say this is part of my dissociation. I think I feel guilt, but it’s usually a response to a self-directed need rather than purely for the sake of someone else.

    Sometimes I think I like people and causes in concept rather than actual individual creatures. Then again I work very hard to keep those individual creatures in my life. I guess it depends on the degree of closeness.

    Idk if that answers your question.

  144. 1) More Murder Rape and Pillage (Deuteronomy 20:10-14)

    As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.

    What kind of God approves of murder, rape, and slavery?

    2) Laws of Rape (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)

    If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.

    What kind of lunatic would make a rape victim marry her attacker? Answer: God.

    3) Death to the Rape Victim (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)

    If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

    It is clear that God doesn't give a damn about the rape victim. He is only concerned about the violation of another mans "property".

    4) David's Punishment - Polygamy, Rape, Baby Killing, and God's "Forgiveness" (2 Samuel 12:11-14 NAB)

    Thus says the Lord: 'I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor. He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.'

    Then David said to Nathan, "I have sinned against the Lord." Nathan answered David: "The Lord on his part has forgiven your sin: you shall not die. But since you have utterly spurned the Lord by this deed, the child born to you must surely die." [The child dies seven days later.]

    This has got to be one of the sickest quotes of the Bible. God himself brings the completely innocent rape victims to the rapist. What kind of pathetic loser would do something so evil? And then he kills a child! This is sick, really sick!

    ReplyDelete
  145. 5) Rape of Female Captives (Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB)

    "When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive's garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion."

    Once again God approves of forcible rape.

    6) Rape and the Spoils of War (Judges 5:30 NAB)

    They must be dividing the spoils they took: there must be a damsel or two for each man, Spoils of dyed cloth as Sisera's spoil, an ornate shawl or two for me in the spoil. (Judges 5:30 NAB)

    7) Sex Slaves (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

    8) God Assists Rape and Plunder (Zechariah 14:1-2 NAB)

    Lo, a day shall come for the Lord when the spoils shall be divided in your midst. And I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle: the city shall be taken, houses plundered, women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be removed from the city. (Zechariah 14:1-2 NAB)

    I have seen her at work in my life and in the lives of those around me. She is my ally, answering every prayer and performing incredible miracles. As I spend my days in my run with her, I am clothed in her righteousness. She is truly awesome! Life outside of IPU has nothing to offer and is empty and depressing.

    I hope that she touches each of you with her holy hooves to guide you through the travails of life. Please open your liver to her incredible truth. Although my faith in her is deep and abiding, I have also seen the hole in the wall that has been made with her unique horn. Plus, no one has ever proven her wrong.

  152. "At no time was greater damage ever done to Christianity than in those years when the Christian parties ruled side by side with those who denied the very existence of God. Germany's entire cultural life was shattered and contaminated in this period. It shall be our task to burn out these manifestations of degeneracy in literature, theater, schools, and the press—that is, in our entire culture—and to eliminate the poison which has been permeating every facet of our lives for these past fourteen years."

  153. No I don't have socio traits. Personality disorders don't work like that, holy fuck. I have a dissociative disorder. I can be extremely self sacrificing and empathic, it depends on how close I am to the person though and whether or not they're idealized or devalued. Most borderlines are not aware of where their emotional reactions come from. Most Borderlins are very sensitive... to their own needs, and sacrificing for the needs of others are ways of subconsciously getting their own needs met. Not always, but often. I may be more insensitive than most, or I may just be more self aware of my own motivations. Or both.

    I'm not arrogant either.

  156. Btw there is a lot of crossover between PD traits. Being angry, impulsive, and insensitive isn't strictly socio. Hell, more often than not it's NT.

  157. To be honest, I think it is easier to live a life of poverty and suffering with religion. If you think you will be rewarded with a beautiful after life, the day to day misery might feel easier to take.

  160. When a theist scrutinizes their religion critically, they realize that there are fundamental flaws in it. That's when they start disbelieveing in their own religion. Some look for comfort in different religions because of being unable to discard the God concept, that's why you have converts. Others become deists/agnostics/atheists... Many disbelievers don't reveal their true identity in fear of being socially rejected or sometimes death threats...

  161. @U Kan Can the Act Aggy:

    Oh shut-up, already, you turd. Save it for the Pissed Off Militant Lesbian Brigade. You are taking all of these quotes out of context. God never approved of slavery, he just sought to apply a modicum of decency to the practice; it was already well-entrenched in Hebrew culture and nothing was going to change that. We see plenty of evidence for this in the NT. God meets us where we are.

    @Haven: Your post is very insightful, and it touches on something I was thinking about.

    One of the earliest memories I have is of my father bashing my head against a door so hard I saw stars. My aunt was pissed off, but I thought she was mad at me at the time. Then again, sometimes he was very nice to me.

    Perhaps my lack of empathy has to do with the fact that I was never able to form a secure, loving bond with such an important figure in my life. I couldn't trust him. I think a core component of my personality failed to develop as a result. I learned to disassociate myself from my emotions very young.

    That might be the most accurate thing you've said all day.

    Except for the part about my parents, that is; they never taught me to love God. God did that Himself :)

  168. If God is omnipotent and the One. Why does god have a penis (gender defined as male)? It's not like there are any other lady goddesses around for 'Him' to procreate with according to that particular dogma.

  169. Let me guess... a complex creator ?

    Such a complex creator needs an even more complex creator. And that creators creator must be even more complex. And so on and so on.

    God doesn't need a Creator because He exists in eternity and therefore outside of the confines of spacetime

  174. Bella, to answer your earlier query, yes I'm exactly the same and more. I just accept it. I don't try to figure myself out cos I'm as basic a structure as anyone else and i think i already have done anyway. I'm perfectly imperfect, all over the place or focused. Don't beat yourself up for having some narcissism in you or whatever. Defence mechanisms are natural and you're a mix of things. It's impossible not to live life without some defence mechanisms if you've had problems in the past.

    Go see a therapist if you want, but most understanding is derived by your own experience anyway. Just accept you're a bit nuts or indefinable and run with it. It's quite liberating when you look at it like that.

  177. Just about ANYTHING else is better than submitting yourself to that mindless activity with ABSOLUTELY no straight answers, because god works in mysterious ways. Imagine if your doctor started working in mysterious ways? Or if your baker started baking bread with mysterious ingredients? But its okay for religion to feed a spider web of info that brings up more questions than is answers.

    People should see their roots and connect with one another, stop the greed. People should rule the world not some invisible dude.

  178. @U Kan be Damned:

    God initiated and programmed those cycles. Don't you know it says in the Bible that God commanded the EARTH to bring forth vegetation and animals?

    You think a room full of monkeys like you tapping away at their computer keyboards would eventually produce Homer's Iliad? Because that is precisely what you are expected to believe as a good, Dawkins abiding atheist. Of course, that shouldn't be a problem, because the only way to mitigate the anthropic principle is to accept the existence of MULTIVERSES, in which ours just "so happens" to have all of the right ingredients, in the right proportions, for the proliferation of life. That model is just as unprovable as God, yet you propose it to be a viable "scientific" theory?

    Haven't you ever heard of Occam's razor?

    Give it up, Narc. All your blustering and posing only serves to reinforce your, seemingly limitless, stupidity.

    You are the one making claims you can not prove. As a matter of fact, that on one can prove. Which makes it more absurd that you believe this shit. Do a little reading (besides the Creationist sites)

    I truly feel for you. People like you need meds, lots and lots of meds.
