About Faith

BulgarianFrenchMagyarSerbian.

Most believe in the theory of evolution, that man was once a primitive creature much like the apes still amongst us. They believe that man and apes have common ancestors, common roots. Almost everything is seen in this light. Almost everything is understood in this light. “Man was primitive before, and we are more advanced today”. “We are the most advanced creatures ever to walk on this planet”.

(Then they go watch football on their high tech TVs, and scream like apes when their favourite team scores… Yeah; ‘very’ advanced indeed…)

They heard the news that Ebola has arrived and 10.000 are already dead? They just got to know that another nation has invaded their homeland? No. Their team just lost a match…

Also, almost everything we do today are based on some sort of technology. We can fly? Yes, in advanced planes and helicopters. We can dive to the depths of the sea? Yes, in advanced submarines. We can build tall buildings? Yes, with cranes and other advanced machinery. We accurately can map the stars? Yes, using high tech telescopes and computers we can. Et cetera.

When we think of ancient man we immediate understand that he had no such things, no such advanced technology, so we assume that he could do nothing of that sort. Some remains of the antediluvian world remains, such as the pyramids in Egypt, and the wisest of us wonder what kind of technology they had, that enabled them to build them like that. Yeah, I mean: do we ever think that perhaps there was another factor involved here, that we don’t know today?…

Technology is today often the answer to everything….

Q. Hunger?

A. More advanced technology, enabling us to produce more food from less land.

Q. Deadly viruses?

A. More advanced medicine, enabling us to produce vaccines that are more beneficial than they are harmful.

Q. The Sun will die one day?

A. Deep space travel and intergalactic travel.

Et cetera

The modern man has faith in science. He is assured by science. “Don’t worry! Science will find a way!” The scientists will solve all problems, using technology. Have no worries. Science and technology will save us all! Hallelujah!”

In reality, every problem solved by technology creates one or two – or more – new problems, and they are often no less dramatic, severe and dangerous. Some times the adverse effects of the technology we surround ourselves with are like a cancer to our societies, and will – unless stopped – destroy us completely. Wipe us out. Obliterate us. Remove us from the face of the Earth.

Ah, but the ‘religious’ don’t worry about that: the priests… sorry, I mean scientists will find a new technology that will solve this before it goes that far! Right? Have faith in them. Let them carry on. Don’t stop them. Don’t object. Things will be fine. Just have faith…

Right?

  2. The difference I believe between science and religion though is that scientists don’t claim to have all the answers. It is an ongoing venture that has no finite destination. There are no singularities in religion because to the pious dark matter and energy can just be called “god.” People just have to be able to balance science and tradition without becoming hollow shells without any purpose or ideology. But that doesn’t seem likely to happen, does it.

  3. Varg,
    What do you think about alternative healing and spells as pagan leftovers in European peoples? There is some very strange spell in my people (Croatia-Montenegro) called “folding of belly button” used to stop pains in stomach, and more than half of people have done it at least once in life by a person that knows spell, and it is very very effective. Sometimes I call my grandmother over phone when I am sick and it works everytime. And it is strange because, once you pass it to someone, you can not do it anymore. There is also another one called “pulling of a fear” that cures neck problems in babies, and conventional medicine have limited success on doing that. What do you think about pagan healing methods, are they real, and do Scandinavians know some?
    Regards

  4. Varg,
    about the death of the Sun, what’s your opinion?
    I mean about European and races in general destiny when the Sun will start to die.

  5. On the construction of the pyramids, here is an excellent video on this. The internal ramp theory sounds plausible to me:

    I’ve come accross the same pattern repeatedly when looking into the amazing construction feats of the ancient world, that relatively simple techniques were used to create amazing results. A case in point was the use of scaled templates to create the exact angles on the columns of Greek temples.

    • Many year ago i was with my parents in Egypt. Our tourist guide in Giza was Polish archeologist. He debunked all common misconeptions about pyramids (how they were built, who built them ect.). He said that they were simly build by making ramps out of mud bricks and rolling them up on trunks. He even show such ramp in other place we were in (which one it was don’t remember).

      • Det er da godt å høre, men tror ikke det er noe poeng i å kommentere lenger, det sluker bare min energi og fører ingensteder. Du kommenterer jo det som er helt rett, men når noen er blitt gjort så blind for kristendommens virkelighet så er det vansklig å få dem til å snu, dette spesielt når de selv fortsetter å grave seg dypere og dypere ned i havet av Judeo-Kristen propaganda og løgner

  8. Much of the problem in getting people to realize the new problems caused by any new technology is that they develop slowly enough that most people do not notice them until they are already dependent on the technology.

    I’m old enough to remember what it was like before most people had cell phones. I believe i was either 20 or 21 when my job gave me my first one. Before that, I had the phone numbers of family, close friends and co-workers (probably 25-30 people in total) memorized. I would be lucky to recall three or four numbers for people from memory today. it’s like a muscle that hasn’t been used in over 15 years.

    Now I see groups of people everywhere whose relationship with their “smart’ phone isn’t much different from that of a drug addict with their ‘medicine” of choice. They can’t sit and talk to the people in front of them for more than five or ten minutes without reaching for their next fix.

  9. No need to worry about technology, nothing can destroy nature, nature Will restore herself, have you not considered even harming nature is done by nature? nothing cant be out of nature. this society will fall , then new forms will build, then the process Will start over, again and again.nature is playing with different forms, just like a kid roleplays hes a doctor, then when he getstired of that he just change to a new game, your problem is that you are caught in your mind,we humans are nothing against nature, even if we destroy everything on this earth , earth Will restore her self in new ways, have you never thought maybe thats natures plan? Nature is both life giving and dark destructive, neither good or bad, it just is, so with that in mind, focus on living your life with love, its preciouss, even this hellish time, and adhd fucked up generation be glad your alive, if you knew natures strength you would not worry about the future, what happens happens, then its natures way, and you should stop blaming other races,there are stupid and smart people in all races,life is just to precious to live with hate, its just not worth it

  10. This reminds me of all the people I see wandering around wearing headphones or ear buds constantly with their music cranked up so loud that I can hear it. It’s just a blatantly irresponsible and pointless use of technology and it’s turning them deaf. I’ve also heard that having constant background noise like music or a fan droning on all the time can eventually make it difficult to think without that background noise, and I’ve read that babies raised in this type of environment (like the perpetual fan sound in the background) have difficulty developing language skills as they grow older.

    Not to mention all the vaccines. Wonders of modern medicine? I think not. Illnesses can become immune to them, hence more dangerous, and harder to control. It just raises the chances of epidemics in my opinion. Then one day an extremely bad illness (Ebola maybe?) just has a better chance of killing a massive amount of the earth’s population – almost like an uncontrolled biological weapon of mass destruction – because not only do we not have medicine to stop it, lessen the effects, or generally control it, but vaccines could very well be weakening our immune systems so that we become worse at fighting illness in the first place. And if the vaccines themselves don’t make you sick, there’s all that sodium fluoride in water and toothpaste to weaken you anyway.

    Of course I’m no expert self-declared or otherwise, but modern technology seems more harmful than helpful to me in general, and that was only with two examples. So in short: I agree with Varg. Another great post!

  11. That’s absolutely right. And just an everyday walk through the streets will make you wonder about all these things – look around you, look at the people and decide – are they really on a path to perfection or are they disintegrating themselves, disintegrating their own race?

    No wonder there are theories about a “faith genes” that are supposed to make us believe stuff that just ISN’T real…

    • You’re right. Just by looking around you, you can see that the world is heading to the Oblivion.
      Man are losing his masculinity. A simple money is most valuable than a Human. We are living in a society that growing your inner isn’t important anymore. You need to grow the outer, that is, grow your patrimony, because it’s more important to have a great car, rather than to have a great you. The so called high society and its three pillar: the Semitic religions, the Large Corporations and the Media. “High” society.

  12. When I look back I see that my ancestors had no such comfort,no such security but they surely were more happy than I am because they still had harmony. Sometimes I wonder how all of this will end for the white man ; we live in such a racial chaos today, I mean the white world is the most degenerate area of this planet ! how did this happen? how could this be solved ? But finally I don’t care, I’m born as a pure european and I can’t control all of the mess out there and all the stupid and weak bastards. Everybody has his role to play and those who must degenerate will degenerate …
    I just regret that one of the generation of my race (hail true franks!) just betrayed all their ancestry by converting … and condamned the following ones … But I’ll never give up …

  13. Real science is based on the opposite of faith – doubt. It is about testing and questioning to understand the inner workings of the natural world. It is advanced sorcery. But the masses are indeed female/emotional/religiously minded, not male/rational/scientific, and want to be spoon-fed simple answers to have faith in. As it should be. The problem is there is that no sorcerer king is in charge, a great leader, but instead Zionist lapdogs. Democracy is fundamentally flawed because the people chose some mediocre stupid fat ruler. This violates the aristocratic principle of nature, and it will punish itself, with increased devolution into a people of race-mixed mongrels, who will eventually destroy themselves.

  14. I think it’s more than that. At least electric devices are in most cases deliberately used to enslave the population and control our minds not only by psychological means through mass media manipulation, but also very directly through harmful microwave technologies and chemtrails – let alone television and mobile phones.

    Our ancestors were in many ways more advanced. They had different technologies, not electronic, but no less functional in aiding their lifestyle and especially connecting them to mother nature. Their entertainment was telling stories at a bonfire or looking at the night-sky free of “light pollution” until falling asleep.
    How many children today know the hair color of every pop-star, but cannot tell a mouse from a rat, let alone know which plants are edible? All because they are experiencing reality almost only though screens and learn by an educational system that teaches them that their ancestors were either “Adam and Eve” or some monkeys that suddenly started walking upright for unknown reasons.

    Think as you want, but I am certain that this is no mere coincidence or “bad luck”. Our “world-managment-team” uses modern “science” and it’s teachings to keep us locked into linear thinking, so we don’t remember the simple meaning of life our forefathers still had awareness of. They separate us from other lifeforms, or indeed life itself through electronic technologies in order to ultimately turn us into robots.
    Great thinkers of the past like Copernicus and Galileo would turn in their graves by seeing how science has yet turned into another dogmatic religion; or maybe they indeed are observing us cheering us on to once again question the powers that be and find new ways to interpret reality and reconnect with the Gods, our ancestors.

  15. Tech has it’s uses as a supplement to a natural lifestyle so long as it can be properly managed as to limit it’s intrusion. The problem comes in whereas people use it as a replacement or where people don’t remember that a high amount of self-control is needed around it. You can find more information on a computer within a day than our ancestors would have found in years; it’s too easy to become addicted to this constant stream of knowledge, the entertainment is that much worse.

    • To a greater extent I agree with you Kevin, but from my experience I know that the knowledge itself can turn into an amusement, there is a lot of interesting information that I myself like to read, but for the greatest part it has no any practical usage, so you end up knowing many thing but knowing not how to deal with reality. Our brain consumes a lot of energy, and naturally it is not intended to be fulfilled with useless information, but to deal with daily situations and saving the positive experiences, in order that survival be possible. When the space is filled with knowledge the man doesn’t need instead, his chances for survival in natural conditions fall radically. In this way the man becomes domesticated, and so he needs civilization and commodities to survive and to continue using his brain and body in all for what it’s not intended. Knowledge in our days is nothing more than entertainment.

    • E.g. the greatest entertainments in decadent western civilizations, and Middle East as well, were History and Philosophy. Let’s start with history, it probably has its origins in traditions of tales about the deeds of some ancestors in pre-“civilization” communities, and it still is nothing more than academicaly formulated tales. It’s not by chance that history appeared in “civilizations”, when the old traditions and worldviews were rejected, history itself is a manifestation of liniar concept of time, which became common in pagan urbanistic communities, in this way history is a sign of decadence as well. It’s also not by chance that the greatest lovers of history were always jews and christians, their sacred books, upon which their religions are based, are nothing more than a compilation of tales, being it old testament or gospels. The history also gives the false sense of evolution and progress. The histories of our countries are the instruments for spreading hate among the nations, stirring conflicts and wars, because history cares only about the geo-political aspects of societies, conflicts and wars, the humans thus are secundar. Where is war there is history, where is history there is war.

      • History feeds from reality, but it’s not a reality, it is a highly denaturised version of it. So there is a need of fanatical faith, to believe in it, with no questions, to reject reality no matter what, and this is what about the religion of jews, christians, muslims; histories/tales that shoudn’t be questioned, but blindly believed.

        Nietzsche was right when saying that history and philsophy are for decadents, and that historians and philosophers are nothing than decadents.

  16. “(Then they go watch football on their high tech TVs, and scream like apes when their favourite team scores… Yeah; ‘very’ advanced indeed…)”

    Reminds me of my mother…

  17. Science is a method, it’s ideally not a dogma or a set of assumptions. Lots of people disagree and evangelize for science. This is bad for everyone, because 1) it creates a new narrow-minded orthodoxy that parallels religion, as you wrote, and 2) it radicalizes moderate Christians and pushes them to the fundamentalist fringes, empowering the radical side of Christianity.

    In some of your writing you mentioned a need to embrace science to return to a better Europe, correct? Is there a kind of balance that needs to be maintained? And do you still stand by your statement that spirituality can “fill in the blanks,” where science can’t answer questions?

    • Yes, I think we need some sort of balance, to make sure that science does not take man into ‘the darkness’. Science can aid man in his betterment of himself, but it can also destroy man — so yes: we need a balance.

      If I recall correctly, I said that mythology could fill in the blanks until we knew better. Not ‘spirituality’, but mythology. Just to make that clear.

      • ‘Spirituality’ Has there ever been such a term so loaded? It’s showing up in discussion is a sad reminder of how dominant modern faith truly is. Where you either are materialistic or a good man who abandons the physical in preparation for some generic enlightenment which can never be based on tradition, culture, nor blood as those to are materialistic things. Has there ever been such a term to have led so many to dissociation?

        • I personally understand “spirituality”, simply put, as oneself thinking about itself in relation to their own subjective experience. No materialistic nor platonic criteria involved, at least separately.

          • I think most of us could explain our “beliefs” as religious, but not spiritual. We follow a certain code of virtues and learn from myths what is good and important, but we don’t necessarily believe in any supernatural being/s. Deities, whether you believe in them or not, are mainly role-models

            As opposed to the hippie sort who say “I am spiritual, but not religious” eg: I like smoking pot, drinking, whoring myself and rarely washing, because no dogma can tell me what to do,and I am free. But once in a while I will buy some cheap alcohol from the store, and offer it to my shrine to the glorious war god, Odin, so I AM a true pagan.

  18. “In reality, every problem solved by technology creates one or two – or more – new problems, and they are often no less dramatic, severe and dangerous.”

    Another issue is that these aformentioned problems can feed off of or perpetuate one another. Take antibiotics, for instance. Antibiotics are a good example of, as Mortin Wolf mentioned below, appropriation of a scientific invention by an ignorant majority. Now, look at their application with regards to two of the three problems you posed that technology has purportedly provided a solution to:

    Firstly, technology has evolved and provided agriculturalists with equipment and alternative methods to ensure that their livestock thrives in order to provide more food for a growing populace, including providing them with a steady course of antibiotics. At the same time, animal husbandry has introduced humans to various bacterial illnesses and a growing population has facilitated the spread of others. Take into consideration our consumption of sub-therapeutic doses of antibiotics in the meat that we’re sold by the agriculturalists and the self-prescription of, again, sub-therapeutic doses of over-the-counter antibiotics for minor bacterial infections that would eventually pass regardless (or even for the likes of the common cold […]) and what we’re left with is strains of disease which are now resistant to our only technologically conceivable methods of combating them. Thanks in part to parrallel technologies and thanks in another (but no small) part to ignorant misuse of potentially beneficial technologies.

    With regard to the photograph you posted, I often wonder if the people it depicts are inheretly unintelligent or if their faith in science and scientists has simply mentally excused them from using their head once in a while, to the point where they can actively disregard most other issues in favour of… well, whatever. Either way, they do what they do, and I don’t suppose the reasons why matter much, now.

    • You don’t even have to analyze it that carefully to find the problems of technology. Increased food productions means more people will survive, and then they need even more food to keep the standard of living, and on it goes, until the land is completely exhausted and they all (or at least almost all of them) die. Technology can help them keep this up for some time, but eventually it will fail them — and then a lot of people will suffer because of it. Suffer as in ‘starve to death’.

      • It’s a dire projection, but it’s an assured one. The same unsustainable pattern has formed where fuel is concerned, as well. Even, in some cases, with regards to its distribution (i.e. the potential for nuclear meltdown, as you’ve written about previously).

        I can’t help but wonder every now and then what kind of collective impairment in foresight has led us to the stage we’ve reached now. Then again, I don’t suppose caution and forward-thinking has ever been the strong suit of those ‘behind the curtain’, especially if there’s money to be made.

  19. It is only a question of time until this whole age of technology will fall and I really welcome this fall. I long for it. I miss the times, when night was still night, the times when our whole world was one big forest, the times when we sat with our family in the evening around a fire and ate a self hunted animal, the times when there were absolutely no such things as fossile ressources and electricity, the times when we still lived according to our nature. I already felt this when I was a child and between 9 and 11 years old (now I am 21). I started to read Harry Potter at this age because I was so fascinated by the movies. What fascinated me the most was the absence of electricity in Hogwarts. It let me some kind of escape this modern reality and (at least in my thoughts) live in world without electricity and technology. I was sort of obsessed by Harry Potter and there was nothing I wished more than live in the world of these books. I did not understand though, that there has actually existed a reality, which was like I wanted it to be and which was far better than the world of Harry Potter, I think this was because I still had the idea that they were primitive in the past (not at least because of the stories from the middle ages). Now I understand why I actually liked these books so much, they let me feel a world I had forgotten, a world that was much more acoording to my nature. I always understand now that there is so much political left wing propaganda in those books, but they still kindled some kind of fire within me that still burns. I have to thank the (left wing) autor of Harry Potter for opening waking me up (something she has not intended for sure).

    Strange how you can get from one topic to another simply through writing down your thoughts. Hm, I think it wasn’t too off-topic though.

    • I too was fascinated by the Harry Potter books, they opened up a new world to me. They made me think about the origins of the creatures and ideas contained in the book and served as a wonderful escape from a very unmagical reality. The last few in which even when the whole of the wizarding world was fighting Voldemort, it was up to Harry to go it alone and fulfil his destiny, really talked to me.
      I think great wisdom can be found in the pages and I recommend them to all children as an introduction to fantasy books.

  21. Faith alone is the cause of unprecedented damage through Human history. Faith being the final surrender of one’s very will. I look upon my peers who of my age today, now only have faith to fall in whatever direction they choose… Yet they still fall because faith helps them to do so. For so much is beyound our control, yet I must have faith in many areas as a result. I often feel betrayed when something goes wrong. As a result I find it was I who misplaced my faith (speaking in the most general of terms). I’ve been told that arrogance leads people to remove or distroy what is deemed “useless” I find that faith has a great deal of letting such occurences happen, and thus to continue.

    Once the majority find thier new found faith in science to be treacherous; then we shall see what new faith they shall hold.

  22. I hope you won’t fury on me for this innocent off-topic, but,

    Varg, I wanted you to ask of what do you think of the following pre-Germanic/Proto-Scandinavian reconstructions of the name of god WôðanaR, such as:

    *Wâtinos

    and/or

    *Wâtûnos

    Also on Óðinn’s other name, Óðr, reconstructed as *Watus, and thought to be a cognate with Latin vâtes, meaning “prophet, seer”, also regarded as a class in celtic priesthood, similar to Adhvaryu in vedic religion.
    Would it be right to call Óðinn with one of those reconstructions? I know you have reconstructed his name as Wôþanas, but in PIE. What do you think, had his name appeared in an Indo-European society or Pre-Indo-European one? Of course in an Pre-Indo-European society there is no talk of the god as such, since they had no names for gods, and especially for such a patriarchical god as Óðinn, but most probably they had a name for seers, or rather seeresses, since they were matriarchical societies, and here comes the Proto-Scandinavian *watus with its Proto-Germanic form *wôþuz. Do you generally agree with those reconstructions?

  23. It’s definitely true that people depend too much on technology, but I think what you’re trying to say is that if people would be educated enough to master technology and to understand many things that are taken for granted, like vaccines for example as “A connoisseur” mentioned then I believe it would not be a problem. Humanity survives because of it’s adaptability right? Technology is a product of that human trait, the issue is that the inventors and the geniuses are a minority and their inventions and genius ideas are used and appropriated by the “lesser” majorities. The problem, to me it seems, is that we’re not interested in becoming better and to understand how things work, we just take everything for granted without any spiritual or existential goal. People think “to live” means “dying in life”.

    • I agree with you, but I don’t think the lack of involvement with the development of technology is caused by of a lack of will, but by a lack of time: there are now too many areas of investigation! And the problem with this is that those who began digging those fields of knowledge now have the upper hand and will do anything to retain their piece of the cake (profit-wise).

      Technology was supposed to set us free, but instead of achieving personal development we now are subject to all kinds of disordes (sleeping disorders, eating disorders, addictions) due to the excess of super-stimuli, and are also slaves once again, with people working on jobs that are unnecesary just for the profit of others (mainly advertising).

      Things are going to get worse in the following years. With the advent of robots many jobs will be automatized and that’s one of the toughest crisis that will occur. We must start acting now to get the upper hand when the time comes, and this means to create self-sustainable communities. For those interested, some fellows in Eastern Europe started a movement called Open Source Ecology (http://opensourceecology.org/), aiming to create Open 3D blueprints for all the machinery necessary for a sustainable village. Some other folks are now working with 4D printing to create self-erected/self-assembled structures…

      What are your thoughts on this? Which kind of technology should we be exploring to improve our future?

      • I don’t think technology is the cause of this but the misuse of technology. People are conditioned by technology yes but that didn’t stop us and others from observing and saying: “Well, maybe relying on technology is not good after all because of X and Y” so to say simply “it’s technology’s fault”, in my opinion, is not correct, the problem is the attitude of people towards technology: If people regain their values of honor, absence of greed and naturalism technology won’t be a problem anymore I believe.

        For example, I personally don’t agree when some of you say that electricity is “bad” because to me it’s the same thing as fire, water, wind. It’s manipulation of elements and we humans do that for our advantaged since ever. Why is the use electricity suddenly “wrong” ? Everything can lead to bad things if we’re not wise enough. That’s my opinion.

        • We are on the same page. I don’t think that technology per se is bad, but that those who have the upper hand didn’t care to develop all the possibilities for the divergent responses they could get of their products. But I do agree with Varg and others that by relying too much on technology we have lost skills that could be helpful when the shit hits the fan.

          As a tool, Technology is of great aid to us. As a trend it becomes a slaving device used to keep us from overcoming and achieving. Remember this with the soon-to-be rise of the wearable devices.

  24. Science “works” for people, for now. It’s hardly infallible, and on a large/small enough scale the scientific “laws” for understanding the universe simply don’t work.

  25. “The modern man has faith in science. He is assured by science.”
    True. Furthermore, as you also mentioned, people believe that scientists will solve those people’s problems. This means that people believe that science is able to solve their problems, but still they can not use science by themselves, so to speak. Some scientists should help them. This proves that modern man is shiftless. And this allows those scientists lie about some their inventions. So, for example, most of people don’t know about the harm of vaccines, etc.
