The Failure of Utopias by ruperttaylor in history

[–]HugodeCrevellier 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Over the years, many idealists have tried to establish utopian societies but none have been able to make them work.

Well ...

For example,
the United Sates of America,
the first modern Democracy, was,
until it proved successful,
considered Utopic.

Imagine the vision required to,
before the creation of the USA,
actually seek to set up a government
by the people for the people,
based neither on oppression
nor on lies (e.g. elaborate religious bullshit)
but, rather, on reason and consent, ...

... this in a world where
only monarchies/dictatorships, oligarchies,
and/or assorted priesthoods
had been ruling over people ...

... how Great was that!?

On this day in 2011, there were 216 tornadoes in the United States. It's being called the "2011 Super Outbreak" ~ The number has an interesting property: 6x6x6=216 ~ (The number of the beast is 666.) by In-the-clouds in history

[–]weavilsatemyface 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The number of the beast is 666, not 216. Or 18 (6+6+6).

Actually the real number of the beast is 616. The oldest copy of the Book of Revelation (Papyrus 115) gives the number of the beast as as χιϛ or χιϲ, which is 616. Other ancient manuscripts like the Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus agree. "666" is a typo from the original, or possibly a deliberate error to hide the true number.

Anyone claiming 666 is the number of the beast is either mistaken or a Satanist trying to mislead people.

And I have read the opposite to be true of their wood stock. It's as though they have taken the theories key talking points and simply flipped it.

The RMS Olympic's keel was irreparably damaged from the collision with the Hawke. How did they fix that damage that rendered it not seaworthy? The damage was so catastrophic, it twisted the propeller shaft.

Here's a debunk of that theory.

One key piece of evidence can be found in the construction of the ships. Each had a distinct construction identification number, also known as a yard number, that appeared on many of their parts, including their wood paneling. It is well documented that the Olympic’s yard number was 400, while the Titanic’s was 401. Multiple artifacts bearing the number 401 have been raised from Titanic and items auctioned off after the Olympic was retired in 1935 feature the number 400.

In case you don't know when Muslims pray they are facing Mecca, but j claims that there is remains of the original mosques that actually all triangulate towards Petra.

He also claims that there is no historical evidence that Mecca or Muhammad ever existed in the year 600 whatever.

Mystery Cults of Ancient Rome: Secrecy, Ritual, Archetypal Gnosis by UBERGheist in history

Interesting site. The Romans outlawed the bacchanalia in 186 BC on the Nones of October, which is October 7. The trance music festival in Israel that got attacked October 7 was the super nova festival. They were doing hallucinogenic drugs. Psytrance DJs Astral Projection and Man With No Name were there. Seems like the same thing conservative Romans outlawed. Israel is run by conservatives, Netanyahu and others, and attacked their own citizens as they were taken away as hostages with Hannibal Directive. Maybe the festival was a mystery religion festival that is popular thru the world and Israel wanted to stop it.

I like the story of this guy:

On 6 August 1945, he was in Hiroshima, preparing to return home from a business trip when the American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, dropped an atomic bomb on the city. Yamaguchi lived, while 140,000 other people who were in the city that morning died, some in an agonising instant, others many months later.

Burned and barely able to comprehend what had happened - only that he had witnessed a bomb unlike any used before - Yamaguchi spent a fitful night in an air raid shelter before returning home the following day.

That home, 180 miles to the west, was Nagasaki. His arrival came the day before it was devastated by a second US atomic bomb on 9 August.

Many people belong to the adversary without realizing it. They are asleep and willingly ignorant.

Your statement caused me to think and to remember my own past.

I used to be an unbeliever and did not enjoy sitting in a church building listening to a man wearing a suit, standing on a stage, and speaking into a microphone preaching about tithes. I saw church as being a business and not about solving real problems. Then I woke up and realized Jesus Christ is my only hope. He was persecuted and lead to his death by the religious leaders. I no longer go to a man-made church. But I spend time in God's word daily and he (the resurrected Jesus Christ) teaches me new things daily through the working of his spirit. He is available to all who call on his name, regardless of location.

"The subsequent half-century exodus of the Bikini people included a 2-y stay on Rongerik Atoll, where near starvation resulted, and a 6-mo sojourn on Kwajalein Atoll, where they lived in tents beside a runway used by the U.S. military. In 1948, they were finally relocated to Kili, a small, isolated, 200-acre island owned by the U.S. Trust Territory government. Numerous hardships have been faced there, not the least of which was the loss of skills required for self-sustenance."

The US president at the time (Harry S Truman) said the purpose of the tests were "to determine the effect of atomic bombs on American warships." I wonder what the spiritual consequences were for America nuking its own ships in the water with animals instead of men tied to their positions. It does look satanic.

Jesus himself was the last sacrifice needed for man to be reconciled to God. No more animal sacrifices are needed.

hate atomic explosion footage because you have no idea of the scale....case in point: one of these explosions is 3 kilotons, which is about the scale of the Beirut munitions and fertilizer explosion from a few years back. I think it's actually closer to 1-2 k estimated yield, but that fucking thing looks huge because it's in the context of all those buildings and ships and the harbor and everything. This 3 kiloton explosion looks tiny, because the camera is so far off and flat with nothing to compare it to but the desert floor, but in reality it's a fucking huge explosion too!

Sometimes, I don’t think you fully understand evil. Because that’s what we were fighting in the Pacific in WWII. Those little yellow bastards would have slaughtered us when we went to invade Japan. So we hauled out a nuke.

I love my dog. And other animals. But I never forget..I eat animals too. So using animals to explore the unknown to further human knowledge doesn’t bother me a lot. As long as it is humane as possible. Don’t forget, goats are delicious, and it could have died for my dinner table too. Food does not come from the supermarket wrapped in plastic.

I had a really good Chink friend in college. His opinion was that the US really didn’t need to nuke the Japs. I looked in right in the eye and disagreed. I invited him to come to the town square in my home town and see the names carved in stone who lost their lives in the Pacific. Theses were men of families I grew up with. It was worth killing a million of those Japs to keep just one more name off that stone.

1954 - The United States exploded a nuclear weapon on Bikini Atoll. People lived there until 1946 when the US military told them they had to leave, as their home was "chosen" to be nuked. SMH by In-the-clouds in history

It was a thermonuclear hydrogen bomb.

"Castle Bravo was the code name given to the first U.S. test of a so-called dry fuel thermonuclear hydrogen bomb device, detonated on March 1, 1954 at Bikini Atoll, Marshall Islands, by the United States, as the first test of Operation Castle (a longer series of tests of various devices). Fallout from the detonation, intended to be a secret test, poisoned the islanders who inhabited the test site, as well as the crew of "Daigo Fukuryū Maru" ("Lucky Dragon No. 5"), a Japanese fishing boat, and created international concern about atmospheric thermonuclear testing."

The act of cultivation and the collection of water for personal consumption are fundamental aspects of sustainable living. These practices not only provide individuals with a sense of self-sufficiency but also contribute to a more environmentally conscious and responsible lifestyle. However, it is crucial to engage in these activities with a comprehensive understanding of their implications and the context in which they are undertaken. Contextualizing Water Gathering and Food Production: The practice of gathering one's own water should not be viewed in isolation but rather as part of a holistic approach to water management. Responsible water usage, conservation efforts, and the exploration of alternative water sources are all integral components of sustainable water practices. Similarly, growing one's own food involves considerations such as land use, soil health, and the impact on local ecosystems. Addressing Misinterpretations: The assertion that gathering water and growing food are inherently unsustainable is a flawed generalization that fails to account for the diverse contexts and methodologies employed in these practices. It is essential to recognize that sustainability encompasses a multitude of factors, including the scale of production, the techniques used, and the overall impact on the environment. Moreover, the implication that these practices are inherently harmful to the environment is both inaccurate and alarmist. When conducted responsibly, both water gathering and food production can contribute to a more sustainable and resilient way of life. Exploring Sustainable Practices: 1. Water Conservation: - Implementing rainwater harvesting systems - Employing water-efficient irrigation techniques - Reducing water consumption in daily activities 2. Responsible Land Use: - Practicing crop rotation to maintain soil fertility - Utilizing organic farming methods to minimize chemical inputs - Engaging in agroforestry to promote biodiversity 3. Alternative Water Sources: - Investigating the potential of fog harvesting - Exploring the use of greywater for irrigation - Evaluating the feasibility of rainwater storage and filtration 4. Sustainable Food Production: - Emphasizing the cultivation of locally adapted crops - Integrating livestock and crop production for efficient resource utilization - Implementing sustainable pest management practices Conclusion: The pursuit of self-sufficient practices, such as water gathering and food production, can be a meaningful step towards a more sustainable lifestyle. However, it is imperative to approach these activities with a comprehensive understanding of their implications and the context in which they are undertaken. By engaging in responsible and informed practices, individuals can contribute to a more sustainable and resilient future while addressing the challenges posed by a changing environment.

I try to grow as much food as I can.

I gather my own water, yes.

Your words here take the meaning of my words out of context and abandon their meaning altogether.

I need not help from others

Do you grow all your own food? And provide your own water? Have you made all your own clothing? Did you make your shelter all by yourself? The fuel or energy you use: Did you get it all with your mighty hand?

No man can live by himself. We all need to help one another and work together. When man thinks he needs no one, his own selfish lusts cause him to try to dominate others. And here comes the chaos: war, famine, and disease.

Pray all you want, but I favor action above falsehoods and words, prayer and worship, from nature we come to nature we return.

I do not believe myself weak, I know myself not weak, I need not help from others, I am able to help myself and deities I do not call upon for I not feel them in any way shape or form even when I called upon them.

How much do thousands of words matter if all that matters is the strength of your hand?

No Gods, No Kings, Only Man.

With that attitude, you are an easy target for your spiritual enemies. You are only a weak mortal man, alone, with no higher power to call on for help, because you will not believe that an Almighty God actually loves you and came to earth in the man Jesus to die in your place. I pray you open your eyes before it is too late, before your soul is devoured by the enemy.

In the tapestry of human existence, the value of neighborly love has been revered across cultures, transcending religious affiliations and ideological boundaries. In the context of the USSR, where Christianity was not the dominant belief system, the concept of comradery and friendship took center stage, fostering a sense of unity and mutual support among its citizens. This principle of neighborly love, devoid of religious dogma, exemplified the power of human connection and the inherent goodness that resides within us. I resonate deeply with the sentiment that love should not be confined to a select few deemed deserving but rather extended to all, irrespective of their perceived worthiness. The notion of granting love selectively based on merit undermines the very essence of compassion and empathy, which embraces the inherent value of every individual. True love, in its purest form, seeks not to judge or discriminate but to uplift and nurture the human spirit, fostering a sense of belonging and unity. The absence of religious beliefs does not negate the capacity for moral conduct and ethical decision-making. The pursuit of truth, justice, and kindness transcends religious boundaries, finding its roots in the innate moral compass that guides human beings towards virtuous actions. While religious teachings may provide a framework for moral guidance, they do not hold a monopoly on compassion and empathy. The assertion that one is neither in darkness nor blind while rejecting the concept of Gods or Kings underscores the belief in the inherent goodness and rationality of humanity. This perspective acknowledges the power of human reason and the ability to discern truth and justice without the need for divine intervention. It is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and its capacity for self-governance and moral decision-making. The phrase "No Gods, No Kings, Only Man" encapsulates the belief in the autonomy and self-determination of humanity. It rejects the idea of external authorities dictating our values and beliefs, placing the responsibility for shaping our destiny squarely upon our own shoulders. This perspective emphasizes the importance of critical thinking, independent thought, and the pursuit of knowledge as the means to progress and liberation. In the realm of neighborly love, empathy serves as the cornerstone, enabling us to step into the shoes of others, to understand their struggles, and to extend our compassion and support. It is through empathy that we can truly connect with our fellow human beings, transcending differences and fostering a sense of unity. As we navigate the complexities of human relationships, it is imperative that we cultivate empathy and understanding as guiding principles in our interactions. By embracing the inherent worth of every individual, regardless of their beliefs or circumstances, we create a society rooted in compassion, respect, and mutual support. This, in essence, is the true essence of neighborly love, a value that transcends religious boundaries and unites us as members of a shared human family.

Neighborly love was a very respected value in the USSR, which was not Christian at all, it was comradery and friendship. I practice not selfish love, I grant it to those deserving. I needn't be Christian to be what most Christians deem "good".

I am not in the darkness nor am I blind, for a Christian has already said this to me but he was, alongside all his friends, were blinder than me because they do not see the truths I have unfolded nor seek them ever.

No Gods, No Kings, Only Man.

I am far away from the Asian continent (where Israel is located and where Jesus was crucified) and my parents did not raise me to be Christian. I also do not go to a man-made "church". Yet I believe Jesus is the truth. I will tell you the key to finding the truth: neighborly love. God's fundamental nature is love, so a selfish man (as I used to be) will not believe in God. (I used to be an unbeliever like you.) If you practice unselfish love, you will move into the light and receive more truth. Until then, you are in darkness, blind and unable to see reality for what it really is.

In response to the provided text, I'd like to engage in a discussion about the notion of proximity and its relevance to foreign relations. While it's true that Latvia and Arkansas are geographically distant, suggesting that this proximity somehow determines their foreign relations is a simplistic and narrow-minded view. The complexities of international relations cannot be reduced to mere geographical proximity. Historical, cultural, political, and economic factors all play significant roles in shaping the relationships between countries. To claim that Latvia and the Middle East are foreign to each other solely based on distance ignores the deep historical and cultural ties that exist between them. The fact that most Americans are immigrants from Europe does not negate the significance of the United States' relationship with other parts of the world. The United States has extensive diplomatic, economic, and cultural ties with countries across the globe, including those in the Middle East. These relationships are built on shared interests, common values, and strategic partnerships. To suggest that arguments and words have no effect is a dismissive and defeatist attitude. Throughout history, words have been powerful catalysts for change. Speeches, writings, and diplomatic negotiations have played crucial roles in shaping international relations, resolving conflicts, and fostering cooperation. The exchange of ideas and perspectives, even if they differ from our own, can lead to greater understanding and empathy. In conclusion, reducing foreign relations to geographical proximity is a shallow and inaccurate approach. The intricate tapestry of international relations is woven from a multitude of factors, and dismissing the significance of words and arguments undermines the potential for dialogue, diplomacy, and progress.

The fact that Latvia is closer to the Middle East than Arkansas says and means nothing, Latvian territory was located in Europe and Jerusalem in the Middle East, therefore they are outside of each other and thus foreign.

It is not ironic that you believe since most Americans are immigrants from Europe, your argument or whatever you're trying to convey means little to nothing.

Of course I am able to read Latvian, I am Balt.

Overall your arguments and words have not conveyed anything new, all was heard at least once and all have no effect.

Greetings from the lush forests of Latvia, my friend in Arkansas, USA! It is a pleasure to virtually cross paths with you amidst the vast digital landscape. Your words spark curiosity within me, and I feel compelled to share my thoughts on this intriguing topic of faith and distance. Indeed, the physical distance between us and the places we hold sacred can be vast, measured in kilometers or miles. Yet, it is not the physical proximity that determines the depth of our belief. Faith, like a delicate flower, can bloom even in the most unexpected of places, regardless of the distance that separates us from the physical manifestations of our beliefs. You mentioned the significant distance between Latvia and Jerusalem, compared to the shorter distance between Arkansas and Jerusalem. While this geographical disparity may seem like a hindrance, it is precisely this distance that highlights the power of faith. For it is not the proximity to a holy site that grants us understanding or belief, but rather the openness of our hearts and minds. The people who walked alongside Jesus, witnessed his miracles, and heard his teachings firsthand did not all believe in him. Conversely, you, who are separated from those ancient lands by vast oceans and continents, have found faith in your heart. This is a testament to the fact that faith transcends physical boundaries and finds its home wherever there is a receptive spirit. Your decision to read the Bible, even if it is not at the top of your priority list, is a commendable step towards understanding the foundations of Christianity. The Bible, like a tapestry woven with stories, parables, and wisdom, offers a glimpse into the life and teachings of Jesus. It is a treasure trove of knowledge and guidance, capable of enriching our lives and deepening our understanding of the world around us. While you may not be able to physically walk the same paths that Jesus walked, the written word can transport you to those distant lands, allowing you to experience his teachings and parables in a profound way. The Bible's timeless wisdom can bridge the gap between continents and centuries, connecting us to the divine regardless of our physical location. So, my friend, let us not be discouraged by the distance that separates us from holy sites. Instead, let us embrace the power of faith, nurture it with knowledge and understanding, and allow it to guide us on our individual journeys towards spiritual fulfillment.

Welcome from Latvia! I am glad to meet you. I am in Arkansas, USA.

a religion somewhere far away

I asked AI chat: What is the distance in km from Latvia to Jerusalem, compared to Arkansas to Jerusalem?

Answer

The distance from Latvia to Jerusalem is approximately 2,995 km. On the other hand, the distance from Arkansas to Jerusalem is roughly 9,354 km. Therefore, the distance from Latvia to Jerusalem is significantly shorter than the distance from Arkansas to Jerusalem.

~

Isn't that ironic that I believe and yet you do not yet believe? I am much farther away from the place where the feet of Jesus Christ walked, where he taught his disciples, and where the Jews and Romans crucified him. They saw his face, saw the miracles he did, and heard his words, and yet they did not believe. And I am more than 3 times farther away from that location than you, and I believe Jesus is the truth. I am happy you said you "shall read the Bible" even if it is not high in your priority list. Can you read Latvian?

I shall read the Bible but only much later for reading takes me a lot of time and I have other books I desire to delve in.

Yes, I live in Latvia, I even made a sub called Letts but I rarely ever post there anymore.

I would rather not believe in a foreign import of a religion somewhere far away with a book that has been rewritten numerous times and itself declares that the scribes themselves write lies.

I believe that many religious leaders are much bigger sinners than the common believer.

I do not believe that something eternal can be natural, life is a cycle of pain and suffering intertwined with joy and happiness, that is most natural since nothing lasts forever.

In a world besieged by cacophony and spiritual confusion, it is imperative that we embark on a personal odyssey to discover the truth, unfiltered by the interpretations of others. The Bible, a tome revered by billions, beckons us to undertake this transformative journey. It is a tapestry of wisdom, a beacon of hope, and a source of enduring solace. To relegate the exploration of the Bible to others is to surrender our spiritual autonomy. It is to abdicate our responsibility to seek truth and understanding. The religious leaders of Jerusalem, consumed by their thirst for power, demanded the crucifixion of Jesus, the embodiment of love and compassion. This tragic event serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of blind adherence to religious dogma. The path to salvation is a solitary pursuit, a deeply personal endeavor. No man can bestow faith upon another. True faith must be forged in the crucible of our own hearts, kindled by the fire of our own convictions. It is a journey fraught with challenges, but the rewards are immeasurable. If we embark on this quest for truth with unwavering determination, we will eventually unravel the mysteries that have long perplexed us. We will discover that Jesus is the embodiment of truth, the way that leads to eternal life. The worldly rulers may despise him, for they crave dominion over others, not the brotherhood of equals. The choice is ours to make. We can either surrender our spiritual destiny to the whims of others or embark on a transformative journey to discover the truth for ourselves. The Bible stands as a beacon, illuminating the path towards salvation. Let us heed its call and embark on this extraordinary odyssey.

One of my biggest regrets in life is that I did not read the Bible sooner, for myself, instead of letting other men tell me what's inside. I don't know anything about Latvia.... is that where you live? But I know religious people have destroyed faith in many all over the world. Remember that it was the religious leaders in Jerusalem that demanded the crucifixion of the Savior of the world. Are you hearing this? The religious people are on their way to hell if they do not repent and humble themselves and seek Jesus. You say you don't want synthetic eternal happiness. God offers real, not synthetic, love and truth for ever. His adversary offers nothing but torment and lies for ever.... And lies are what's synthetic.... because they are not real, like being trapped in a virtual world.

Every man should work out his own salvation with fear and trembling. You are responsible for your own choices. No man can give you faith. If you seek the truth above all, then you are headed in the right direction and you will eventually see that no other explanation makes sense. Jesus was who he said he was. He is the truth, the way, and the life. And the worldly rulers hate him, because they wants slaves, not brothers.

I seek truth above all, I adore and hoard information for that purpose and cause alone.

I once told a Baptist priest that I am unable to believe in a religion brought here, to Latvian land, through violence, by Teutonic knights about 800 years ago and he responded to me that I should not be stuck in the one period of time, that about 400 years later some "real" Christians came and started building schools for the locals, Latvians.

I think of him rather naive and foolish for using such a weak argument for it does not repay the sins done 800 years ago, for it brought much pain and loss to the Baltic people, 700 years of serfdom and the loss of the Prussian people.

You are right that none of us are free from faults. You are also right to see a problem with the different sects: believe them not. That's what Jesus said.

God's word is always given to man in its pure form, but man, because of his free will, can corrupt it. That's not God's fault, but God continually delivers the pure truth to man in every generation. But only those that desire the truth can receive it.

Hey, intriguing interpretation! The song seems to depict a scenario where the King's faithfulness is key to the plans unfolding. It suggests a divine order where the faithful inherit the throne, and those who resort to violence are left in darkness. It's a vivid imagery that sparks some deep contemplation. What's your take on the symbolism in the song?

If the King's wife is faithful, then the plans in this song fall apart. As the song says, the King will never die again, but he will allow his faithful to sit in his throne, those of us that have our names written in his book. The violent take up the sword, storm the border and enter through the gates, taking the kingdom by violence. In this case, the Bride will not be found with the blasphemer, but he will be left outside in darkness, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Nobody is free from all faults, never.

I do not believe because every sect of Christianity believes they are right - Orthodox, Baptist or any other Protestants, Jehovah Witnesses, Catholics, etc - and when you look into why each sect came into being, it is pure selfishness or just stupid disagreements.

I do not believe because the Bible has been rewritten numerous times, canons have changed most likely and why should one trust in the word of something rewritten numerous times and changed throughout the course of time?

I believe not for I do not seek salvation upon my death as I do not believe in an afterlife nor do I wish for something so synthetic as a happy forever after.

In short I was never convinced that a God exists and find it rather difficult to believe something like a God.

I am disgusted by many of the events recorded in the Bible. Don't you think God is, too? Just because an act of man is recorded in the Bible as a historically accurate account does not mean it was approved by God.

God was displeased with David for committing adultery with Bathsheba. Here is more of that story: "And the LORD sent Nathan unto David...."

God was displeased with David for counting the men of Israel and Judah that could fight in battle. David repented from these things.

There are things you also have done that displease the Lord: every time you choose to sin. Have you repented? Or are you better than David, and free from all faults?

I can. Or rather, I can paraphrase the words of a priest who knows how to read the Bible in Greek.

As he explained it to me, Jesus's sacrifice transformed the human race. He imparted the grace of God to each and every member of the race, then and now, perpetually. You're perhaps familiar with the concept of "human nature" as it is put forth by the nonreligious? That mankind is a base animal, slaved to instincts rooted in selfish preservation? That may well have been true 2020 years ago, but it stopped being true 2019 years ago. This is why people who say the world will go to chaos without christianity are both stupid and hysterical. Christ is within all of us, literally and metaphorically. The only reason Christ took up the role of rabbi in his lifetime was to spread the good word (in Hebrew, gospel). To let us know that everything we were doing was entirely pointless. There dont need to be guardians of the faith, much less guardians of the people (The Sadducees and Pharisees respectively, today they have become the College of Cardinals and the governments of the world). There isnt anything to guard against anymore.

Are people still capable of evil? Of course. Jesus in fact told us that he had come "not to abolish the law, but to fulfill it," referring to God's "laws", the Ten Commandments. He shows here we still need some divine guidance, but only inasmuch as a robot needs some parameters no matter the miraculous wetware it's been gifted by its creators.

If this sounds incongruous with what you hear in any given Mass it's because it bloody well is. My friend the priest is angry about only one thing in this world, and that's the absolute burying of this central theological tenant amongst all the liturgy and orthodoxy of the church. Because the church as it is today is so ludicrously unecessary its laughable. To keep itself germaine it has stuck to Christ's teaching that dont impune its hierarchy. No one has to tell us how or why to be good anymore, the zytgyst has gotten too big and too accessible. An atheistic type could chalk it up to social programming and be just as satisfied, I believe.
