№ 102. There are No Prophets

PAGE STATUS: When someone asks me about the nature of reality or my religious beliefs, I invariably direct them to this page. This is a deeply personal page, in reality perhaps more so than any other page on this website, including, most decidedly, page № 100. Madman Across the Water (the author) and even the not-so-well-hidden № 108. “I am No. 5, The Third Prime in Life”. So please don’t expect me to apologize,—either for being religious or, more specifically, for being a Christian Scientist. I no longer attend their churches. And I am hated by the Christian Scientists. There really is no other word for it. It is clear to me that organized religion and churches have outlived their usefulness. They have become little more than the breeding ground for some of the very worst traits of humanity such as pretension, hypocrisy, and most of all pride of position. And of course, if you add Catholicism to the mix, pedophilia, a crime I think worse than murder.

Introduction


It is decidedly difficult to explain the depth of meaning this page has for me. It is for me at once, religious, philosophical, and scientific: religious because of my deeply held belief that the Nazarene (Christ Jesus) was partially extraterrestrial in origin which sets me apart from all existing religions on the planet, including my own; philosophical because I insist the “fabric of the universe” (what other people call “God”) is impartial and does not “speak” or otherwise communicate to humans (or any other life forms) at all, in any sense of the word, no matter how “enlightened” they may be; and finally, scientific because it requires explanations for Old and New Testament so-called “miracles” that respect these facts. There can be no exceptions to this rule. None whatsoever. Religions must divest themselves of supernatural nonsense. If Moses said, “I AM hath sent me unto you,” you must conclude that he was making a statement about the nature of being, not at all unlike what I say when I insist God is not personal but is rather the “fabric of the universe.” And if a voice emanating from a cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased,” ET was in the cloud, plain and simple. I have met ET face-to-face. I know whereof I speak.

The Seal of Christian Science in 1901

God is Impartial


Before I discuss why I think the common definition of prophesy as “proclaiming the will of God” is fallacious and that there are no such prophets, I need to at least try to explain my metaphysical reasoning. The greatest single truth I find in Christian Science is that God, the creative and governing power in what appears to us to be a material universe, is impartial.

[God] is impartial and universal in its adaptation and bestowals.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, Chapter 1, Prayer, p. 13:2-3

Christian Science is pure metaphysics. Mary Baker Eddy declared war on the popular belief of an anthropomorphic, big guy in the sky, sense of God. The progeny of Jove and Christian Science are much closer than you would imagine. I fault the progeny of Jove only for not understanding that there is a conscious entity behind their sacred numbers, a Mind, in whose likeness we are indeed made, as the scriptures declare.

The idea of impartiality hints at the true nature of what religious people refer to as “God.” This creative, governing power of the universe, or what I often describe as “the fabric of the universe,” is not conscious of individuals, including the man we call Christ Jesus.

I am that I am

Moses did not part the Red Sea. The comet Venus did. And God (or the “fabric of the universe”) did not speak these words. It does not speak to us. It did not speak to Jesus. As individualized expressions of this one Mind, we are the only ones doing the talking. God is conscious only of Himself. As we approach Him, we can more fully express the infinite, but our individuality is preserved throughout eternity for the simple mathematical reason that God is infinite. We can no more become Him (and therefore talk on His behalf) than a ray of light can become the Sun or a drop of water the ocean. Thus no one ever has and no one ever will speak for God. Doing so is a mathematical impossibility. If you are a progeny of Jove, allow me to explain this in terms you will understand. Phi is an irrational number. It can never be fully expressed, only approximated.

It is this approximation from so-called “enlightened” individuals who claim to speak on behalf of the infinite that is the problem. Essentially what they are doing is saying, “You are so primitive (and in this they are right), that I might as well be God as far as you are concerned.” But this liberty—taken by men who would portray themselves as “prophets”  in order to impress upon us the importance of what they are saying—comes at an unacceptably high price. It comes at the price of shirking our individual responsibility to confront the stark reality that as conscious beings we stand alone in the universe with only our understanding of being to comfort us. I first realized this when after 40 years of being around Christian Science, I heard the following words from a woman named Martha Wilcox who was a member of Mary Baker Eddy’s household at the time of her death in 1910.

What is the Comforter if not a better understanding of the purely metaphysical nature of reality, that the universe is not governed by opposing powers? In other words, there really is but one Supreme Being or God? The false comfort of an anthropomorphic god speaking to us does more harm than good in that it relieves us of the responsibility of protecting our own being by enlarging our conscious boundaries. In short, it opens the door for sin because otherwise, the necessity for the purity of thought would be paramount in our lives. 

Let me break this down for you. Allow me to explain the false dichotomy of the First Council of Nicea.

John 10:30
I and my Father are one.

We are the conscious, individualized expression of the creative, governing power of the universe. In short, we are the expression of God (or God expressed). Without us, God would have no expression and therefore would not exist. This much is pure Christian Science, or pure metaphysics if naming a religion offends anyone. The point is to separate the fabric of the universe from life forms that express it. If there were no life forms in the universe, what evidence would there be of existence? There would be none. Hence there would be no existence. Both ways of expressing this thought are equivalent. And this is not child’s play. The physical senses cannot be trusted. My very first step in metaphysics was to argue with myself that “Something is. I know this because I am conscious.”

John 14:28
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

Discovering the fullness and richness of the creative, governing power of the universe is the work of eternity.

Mrs. Eddy resolved the false dichotomy of the First Council of Nicea when she said, “The Christ dwelt forever an idea in the bosom of God, the divine Principle of the man Jesus…” (S&H, p.29:26-28). Idea is defined as “a thought or suggestion as to a possible course of action.” Now I must ask you to slow down so that you might grasp my essential meaning. This “idea” we call the Christ exists only from a mortal perspective. God did not send Christ to us. The Christ is an office that encapsulates our longing for a higher meaning and purpose in life, for something that more closely resembles what we intuitively feel is our true nature as perfect and immortal beings who are trapped is some inexplicable hell of believing we are fleshly mortals. Earth is an elementary school classroom. Supposing the Milky Way galaxy to be the elementary school building, how many other classrooms must there be?

In November 2013, astronomers reported, based on Kepler space mission data, that there could be as many as 40 billion Earth-sized planets orbiting in the habitable zones of Sun-like stars and red dwarfs in the Milky Way, 11 billion of which may be orbiting Sun-like stars.

Wikipedia, List of potentially habitable exoplanets [bold-red emphasis added]

Our religions are manifestly primitive

Do not the other 39,999,999,999 planets have a Christ? And how many Christs have there been on ours? Was Christ Jesus the first? If so, who then saved the people in previous world ages? Did God not care for them? In eternity, there is an infinite number of Christs. I imagine each and every one of us plays the role of Christ at some point in our experience. I doubt it is a role to be envied but is rather one that is necessary for our “growth in grace” as Mrs. Eddy called it. Saying so does not make me any less reverent of the Nazarene. All I am saying is what Mary Baker Eddy said, you must separate the office of the Christ from the man Jesus. There has been more than one President of the United States of America, and there are 195 countries in the world as of 2019. Each has its own President, Prime Minister, Party Chairman, or whatever. Likewise, the Office of Christ must be occupied by countless individuals throughout time and in a universe infinitely large.

This is what you must understand, but the same mental swaddling cloths that make us think the universe must have begun a mere 13.8 billion years ago insists that Christ Jesus was not only the “son of God” in the sense that there is only one, but for a large percentage of the population Jesus must be God. Thought of in purely mathematical and logical terms, this is madness. The man Jesus had no more direct connection to the infinite than does any individual in the universe. Let me say this in deliberately provocative terms, Jesus was not special in any metaphysical sense. He just did a better job of reflecting the creative, governing power of the universe. Hence, for us, he was the Christ or The Way (forward). And we refer to him as Christ Jesus out of respect, just as we would say President Lincoln. 

And now I am ready to ask, If the Nazarene had no supernatural powers, how do we explain the virgin birth, healings, Annunciation, baptism, and transfiguration?

For me, there is only one answer because I do believe in the authenticity of the Bible. If I am ever able to finish writing № 63. Astrotheology, the strength of my argument on that page is the “literary magic” required to invent a religion, especially in those days of hand-copied manuscripts. It is an absurdity.

Ergo, given the evidence in the Holy Bible such as the constant necessity of clouds in order for “God” to express himself (as opposed to the necessity of ET to conceal his spacecraft), I must conclude what for me over time has become obvious. Christ Jesus was partially extraterrestrial. Who was his Father? We capitalize Father thinking it a reference to God, but for me, one of the greatest truths of pure metaphysics is that, as Mary Baker Eddy says in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,

[God] is impartial and universal in its adaptation and bestowals.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, Chapter 1, Prayer, p. 13:2-3

I cannot overstate the importance of this statement to a proper understanding of the office of the Christ, of the Nazarene who was named Joshua or “Jesus” in Greek, and of the combined term “Christ Jesus,” which carries so much religious baggage that it should be avoided as much as possible. God is no respecter of persons, including even enlightened men such as the Nazarene. God is Mind, the fabric of the universe. Having met these “people,” I can tell you it was exactly how I always imagined it would be in his presence. It was sheer joy. It reminded me of what it felt like when I “fell in love” in my youth. That is why I believe with all my heart that his “Father” was extraterrestrial in origin. 

ET is here now, awaiting “the greatest show on Earth” (our destruction)
Hiding in clouds
And filling their tanks

What is prophecy?


The definition of a prophet is someone who “proclaims the will of God.” The general perception of prophecy is that the “Big Guy in the Sky” finds some guy (preferably with gray hair and a long beard) who is somehow better than his fellow human beings, taps him on the shoulder, and then whispers some secret about the future in his ear. This entire concept of prophecy is rubbish. There are no such prophets, any more than there is an anthropomorphic God. Prophesy is one of two things.

  1. ABSTRACT THINKING: The prophets of yore could “see into the future” because they understood more about the present. Seeing what is happening in the here and now and projecting that thought into the future is perhaps a unique ability, which explains why this particular kind of thinking has a name, but it is nonetheless thinking. For example, more than a hundred years ago Mary Baker Eddy expressed a deep concern for the future of workers in the United States of America who she feared would become little more than “corporate slaves.”
  2. PRIVILEGED KNOWLEDGE: For whatever reason, history is full of people who possess privileged knowledge they want to share without divulging the source of the information. The imaginary “prophet” Daniel appears to be one such person. Whoever is writing this book is at the same time using numbers to communicate the fact that they are the progeny of Jove. Anything “Daniel” knows about the end of the world he learned from his contemporaries, which at the time when this book was actually written is most likely the Pythagoreans

I think it necessary to make some effort to explain myself because to say that prophets do not exist is not only a radical departure from mainstream Christianity, but contrary to my own religion.

Where things get muddled is that highly abstract thinkers and people who possess privileged knowledge oftentimes feel warranted in flights of fancy or what is commonly called poetic license.

I can think of no better example than the parting of the Red Sea. I believe it happened because of the enormous gravitational pull of the comet Venus, but Jewish scribes added the magic wand. Likewise, the progeny of Jove have managed to turn Capricornus into Baphomet in the popular imagination. The divine imperative belongs to the pioneers of thought, but they must use it judiciously. Me? I prefer to keep my feet on the ground. I’ve already seen enough to preclude the necessity of exaggeration.

The transfiguration


I suppose it borders on sacrilegious, but “Beam me up, Scotty, there’s no intelligent life down here!” is not entirely inappropriate here. The cloud is back, and a voice comes out of the cloud. It is a dazzling light show, but here I must ask why the supreme being needs such props as a cloud. What ET is doing here is no different than what Christ Jesus did by healing. They are making sure his message is not lost. “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” it’s a show meant to implant the memory of this man forever in the consciousness of mankind.

Why not just wait until now, until the end times. Why did they send “the Son of God” (their warning to the masses of a pending worldwide catastrophe of unimaginable proportions) 2000 years before?

This is a question I obviously cannot answer, but it is one deserving attention. I can take a gander, though, which is why I started this section with a quote from Star Trek. As I recall, there is at least one episode of Star Trek in which the crew of Star Trek is forced to admit that even with all the might of the Federation behind them, not even they can save the inhabitants of a world about to be destroyed. It is simple logistics. There are too many people to transport off the surface of the planet. The inhabitants of that world were doomed.

Why does the presence of the Almighty in the New Testament always require clouds? Hmmm? Seriously, doesn’t this sound a little strange. 

Matthew 17:1-8

And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, and was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

Mark 9:2-8

And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid. And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

Luke 9:28-36

And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias: who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said. While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

2 Peter 1:16-18

16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

The Annunciation


I am quite sure what I am about to say is heretical even in the minds of my co-religionists. Nevertheless, I attribute the virgin birth to some unexplained form of artificial insemination by a highly advanced species of ET.

Someone was speaking to Mary, but it was not an “angel,” if by that you mean “a spiritual being believed to act as an attendant, agent, or messenger of God, conventionally represented in human form with wings and a long robe.” Such “spiritual beings” do not exist. This is the work of a highly advanced species of ET who is using religion as a crutch to direct our development.

Luke 1:26-38

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

Matthew 1:18-22

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Let me be perfectly clear here; I believe Christ Jesus was born to a virgin (Mary) who was impregnated by a highly advanced race of beings who have taken it on themselves to help mankind through this most difficult period of our development. Furthermore, I believe they watched over his development. This race of beings is so far in advance of us that for all practical purposes they could be regarded as God. Does this mean I do not believe in God? No! Of course not. But God is pure being, something we cannot even begin to grasp in our present condition. God is not a person. God is Spirit. God is the fabric of our being. The more we develop, the closer we come to God. That is why the ET race that gave us Christ Jesus can be trusted. And that is why the “Illuminati” are going to die in those tunnels. They have no concept whatsoever of reality. All they know is their own petty minds. Is it so unforgivable that I attribute the birth and development of the Christ to a more advanced species?

We note that Elisabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, is being artificially inseminated by the same highly advanced species of ET. My guess is that the role of John the Baptist in announcing the coming of the Messiah that they required in hi the same advanced ability to respond to telepathic thought. These two men were more brothers than cousins or anything else. They were a team.

The baptism of the Nazarene (Christ Jesus)


Matthew 3:13-17
Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: and lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Mark 1:9-11
And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: and there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Luke 3:21-23
Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

What is this dove. What is the lightning? And who is doing the talking?
