    As if you know how to stay on topic and answer with statements grounded in reality? Say you do, then realize that I have compared them with velvet's answers. I'm not sure why you don't want to enlighten her beyond fluffy conspiracy theories. It's not like I've engaged in them.

    Nietzsche only said that we must live like animals bereft of civilization and the Eye of Divine Providence. He is the basis of the New Atheists' vicious assaults on the beliefs of mostly Christendom, but who make politically correct comments about Israelis and Arabs.

As General Clarke explains the American public since a decade, your next war will be Iran (and Iraq once more, and of course Greater Israel, formerly known as Syria), and you'll be blind to the fact that you're only help eradicating obstacles on the road to a One World Goverment and instead sing the hymns of #MAGA and your born-again evangelical catholics at the top of your govt, happily throwing firebombs into the Israel-Palestine conflict, swapping more immigrants into Europe, like the US did and does with Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Sudan and all the other wars of the US (222 wars in 239 years of existence, not even one year without a war).

    Likewise planned by CIA, Europe will be in civil war latest in 2020, as things develop currently, probably sooner. And like in Syria, the US army in Germany and NATO throughout Europe will supply their IS-fighters with weapons and logistics against Europeans.

    You think christianity is a salvation? Look again

    But hey, it's all just "conspiracy theory", nothing of this is really happening, let's sing a gospel for world peace and continue ignoring the giant, white elefant with New World Order painted on it dancing through the middle of the room.

    Spare us your anti-German diatribe, you sold them your country in 1913.

    Yes, the spread of conspiracy theories is part of an overarching discredit agenda. The ruling powers mix in absurdities among genuine ones. JFK assassination, 9/11 attacks, and lunar landings are at least in the realm of plausibility.

    The talk about NWO is nothing new, it's just another way of numbing gullible people who fully trust in their governments, prodding them into slavery as they give up more of their rights for entertainment and comfort.

    The obelisk was never a Masonic symbol. To my knowledge, Freemasonry has never laid claim to any of those symbols, it's more of a field of study that has gone astray in recent times.

    This view comes too close to the typically Christian view of all world leaders being satanists. It's possible that there are crypto-Jews in some nations like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Russia.

    And that's why I view it as a misfortune to be born in America. There's no longer any firm connection to Germany. Just rootless...

    Though I don't always like everything Varg says, he does put out some good common sense videos, from time to time.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    The vid's comment section is pretty good too.

    1. Can't be too sure about that placement in time. The interpolations in the writings of Josephus (Jew), Tacitus, Pliny, Aurelius, etc. demonstrate a concerted effort to establish Christianity in the first three centuries. Add in the absolute lack of mention from alleged contemporaries Seneca, the Jew Philo, and others. Christianity was probably conceived in the fourth century. It has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus' teachings.

    2. The Acts is a complete fable invented by the wretched Eusebius, although Paul does give indication in the letters that he was serving a Jewish cause.

    3. If Jesus had wanted his religion to fall into the hands of the masses, then he would have left behind his own writings. Simple as that. His teachings were for the mental elite of the period he lived in and they were snatched up by ignorant peoples (Jews, early Christians). He was negating Judaism. Judaism entails a worldwide distribution of Jews. He forbade them from making proselytes. Similar case can be seen with Uriel da Acosta.

    5. The gospel of John was probably the only one written by a Gentile.

    7. Don't forget about the Shimabara Rebellion. Can't really isolate these incidents as heretical crazies "hijacking" Christianity, they were probably more devoted than 95% of Christians living today (very few have actually even read the Bible. A significant portion believes the teaching "god helps those who help themselves" is taught in the Bible, when it is actually the anti-thesis). These leaders had conviction and consistency in everything they did. Their existence demonstrates that Christianity is and always has been either a revolutionary or reactionary form of communism masquerading as a religion. All genuinely Christian leaders will end up this way until it is abolished.

    The wiki hits the nail on the head with this description: "The goals of the Taipings were religious, nationalist, and political in nature; they sought the conversion of the Chinese people to the Taiping's version of Christianity, the overthrow of the ruling Manchus, and a wholesale transformation and reformation of the state."

    And such is what we are seeing today in the Alt-Right, European "nationalist" parties, anti-immigration and anti-Islam sentiment. Status quo seekers, pacifists, reactionaries, people who want to win back their power to keep the masses enslaved.

    I'm going to post here an article which I think speaks volumes and is on the topic of this thread. I'm going to put some of the more important points in bold:

    Christianity Is Quintessentially European, And The Greatest Religion

    People all over the West are abandoning Christianity and churches are closing down or being converted into spas, pubs, or mosques. Many Canadians are indifferent to this fact and others seem to accept it is as a good and natural thing (like demographic change). The unspoken feeling is that there is something backward, and perhaps even evil, about Christianity, and intelligent and modern people should turn their backs on it and embrace secularism, relativism, and atheism; and if you have to have some sort of religious belief it should be a vague spiritualism or some sort of paganism.

    The leadership of the Protestant and Catholic churches seem even less concerned, seemingly confident that they can easily replace the dwindling number of native Christians (not that kind of native) attending services with people from the third world, in the same way that current governments in the West seem to believe that third world immigrants can seamlessly replace people of European stock as productive workers and model citizens. Just as these immigrants are certain to make our countries unrecognisable, Christianity too will eventually become Christian in name only once it is taken over by non-Europeans.

    Though this prospect may not alarm most people of European stock who seem to believe that whether Christianity lives or dies has nothing to do with them, in reality it has everything to do with them. Religion is more than a matter of personal relevance, it is the ethos of a society or civilization and the long history of Christianity in Europe speaks to the fact that Europeans are comfortable with it and that there must be something about Christianity that is in tune with the European's innate view of the world and his values. Just as Canadians are generally unaware of the European nature of the physical world around us because we feel so at home in it, so too are we unaware of just how much of our way of thinking has been furnished by Christianity. The European mind is so essentially Christian, in fact, that if you are of European stock you are best and more accurately described as a Christian, regardless of your personal beliefs, in the same way that non-observant Jews are still Jewish.

    The European adoption of Christianity was largely bloodless and uncontested all over Europe, and one can see why; the features of Christianity that would have appealed to the pagan Europeans that adopted Christianity would have been features that reflected attitudes towards life that our ancestors had likely already internalized, specifically: future-orientation, self-sacrifice, and anti-materialism. Living in Northern climes with no great population centers, Europeans in the past had to always be aware and prepared for the coming winter and would be thinking not only of their own plight but would be concerned about their neighbour's welfare as well, as they might need that neighbour's help one day to survive. This constant mindfulness of an uncertain future seems to have meshed easily with Christianity's emphasis on a vaguely defined afterlife.

    The Christian afterlife was understood to be something so wonderful and completely unlike the present world, which was despised by Christians as sinful and corrupt, that it was unimaginable. The afterlife our pagan European ancestors believed in was awful; tantamount to sitting for an eternity in a dreary hopeless waiting room, like Pirithous and Hades stuck to a chair. It was not an afterlife one looked forward to, it was a ghastly denouement. The drinking done in Valhalla sounds merry but is probably a later misunderstanding of something that was more accurately the equivalent of the Greek dead drinking from the Lethe; it was something done to kill memories of life and to help you endure the unbearable boredom of an endless death, it wasn't a celebration.

    On top of that, the majority of European pagans would have seen their lives as being in a pointless rut, lives that followed the unchanging circle of the seasons, where men were born, lived and died and were replaced by another crop of men to continue the endless cycle. In contrast, Christian thinking saw human history as being on a trajectory, headed towards an end, Heaven, rather than just spinning its wheels in a monotonous routine. Though, indeed, the Christian view of life was that it was a trial, it did have a happy ending, so being alive was not some cruel curse but a temporary state one could tolerate.

    One can see how trying to imagine the Christian heaven would be a potent inspiration for art and invention, as such works would be seen and envisioned as previews of the wonders of heaven. The relative unimportance of earthly life would also tend to encourage satisfaction with one's state and patience with others, factors which in a political context would contribute to the social peace and stability, hallmarks of Christian nations worldwide. Did every European in the Middle Ages believe in a literal heaven? Probably as much as we do now, but that was not what was most important, what was most important was that official sanction was given to this optimistic view of existence, which would create a climate of cultural enthusiasm that even non-believing Europeans could get caught up in.

    As important as heaven was to traditional Christianity, of course, was the figure of Christ. Not the hippy sad-eyed Christ we see in movies, but a more formidable and forbidding being. Our ancestors probably saw him more as a proud warrior or a frightening druid, not as a simple man. After all, the villager and peasant were despised in days of yore as 'villains' and 'clowns,' they were not thought to be the stuff of heroes. Legendary figures like King Arthur and Theseus also had humble backgrounds, but they were not exactly considered to be of the common people either. It is the nobility of Christianity that appealed to those of European stock. The nobility of a hero that was strong enough and brave enough to even endure death for others, and to do so of his own free will. Heroic suffering and death was always much admired by the pagan Europeans, as the stories of Cu Chulainn, Odin, and Prometheus attest to, and Christ would have been seen as part of that heroic lineage.

    It's easy to see how this admiration of selflessness gave birth in turn to Chivalry, an idea of heroism on a much smaller scale which intoxicated the European nobility as a similar but less extreme way of demonstrating your supreme self-confidence and control by not considering it imperative to have to have your superiority demonstrated or acknowledged openly in all situations, but to be willing instead to condescend to the weaker sex on occasion. While noble suffering and chivalry are now part and parcel of our ideas about heroism, what was considered to be a hero to the ancient Greeks would be someone we would consider today more of a thug. Christianity has improved the European hero without a doubt. The leaders of the pagan Roman Empire that converted to Christianity also likely saw in the Christian martyrs' lack of fear of death something that would improve their legions' fighting spirit. This lack of a fear of death was the missing ingredient for the creation of the kind of European warriors and armies that would conquer the world under various flags. In a sense, it turbo-charged the urges and instincts already felt and admired by European man by sanctifying and celebrating them.

    Though Christ is often declared to have died for humanity, it is crucial to note that the humanity that Christ died for would have been traditionally and implicitly thought to have been European by Europeans. Europeans of the Middle Ages would have found it hard to even imagine sub-Saharan Africans or Chinese. Europe was isolated and under siege by Islam for hundreds of years, Africa would long be a dark unexplored continent, America was undiscovered, China out of reach beyond a hostile Moslem world. Christianity's troubles only really began, in fact, when it went global; and European people suddenly found the world wide open and themselves its undisputed masters.

    Modern Europeans and those of European stock do not see the pervasiveness of their culture and technology all over the world as a source of pride, but rather, seeing it in comparison to the squalor the third world is content to live in, view their people's own inventions, conquests, and art as shameful proof of our materialism, greed, and decadence, and even a justification for terrorist attacks, as if these same vices do not exist all over the world. It is the same inclusiveness and lack of supremacism in Christianity that allowed it to unite all the European people, that has confused modern Christian people of European stock into looking on the whole world subconsciously as Christendom and stupidly seeing all people as Christians, as if people that evolved in radically different environments and societies would think and act exactly like the neighbours our Bronze Age forefathers were so concerned about. Modern Christians think they have a sacred duty to go and save the starving children and cure the diseases of other people who would never and could never return the favour, and create democracy in places where there is no knowledge or call for it, and readily accept invading and opportunistic strangers as fellow countrymen. In this so-called "post-Christian" world, Christians are still trying to prove to themselves and a world that does not care how Christian they are.

    Europeans and people of European stock have rarely been able to understand other religions except as forms of Christianity, which explains their firm faith in the multiculturalism project. What little information they do have about Judaism, Islam and paganism is from books and films that portray Judaism, Islam, and paganism as forms of Christianity. The Western press and politicians strangely talk about 'extremist' and 'moderate' Muslims, for instance, as if these divisions exist, when in reality they are just imagining that Islam like Protestantism is divided into a "good" mainline or mainstream camp and a 'bad' fundamental or Pentecostal camp.

    It is hard to imagine another religion in the world having the power and prominence Christianity has had for the last couple of centuries and not taking advantage of it to displace other religions off the face of the earth. As we are witnessing, Christian societies can tolerate a high degree of multi-culturalism before they collapse. There is nothing sinister or wrong, of course, in supremacist thinking with regards to one's religion, that would be just a Christian presumption, it seems to be a factor in most religions as is easily detectable in phrases such as "Allah Akbar" and "the chosen people."

    It is easy to see how such supremacism naturally evolves: in ancient times there would be a cave-bear or lonely Neanderthal in the woods that the villagers are afraid of, and some of them would call it "the monster," or "the giant," but most would settle on calling it "the god" or "God." The gods or gods of folklore and myth are just such humanized bogeyman. Their amazing physical strength and size alone is what makes them gods and was the reason men feared them and prayed to them. They were unpredictably good or bad, but were mostly indifferent to humans. The religious stories and classical myths of all peoples are basically more sophisticated literary versions of stories taken from simple peasant folklore about monsters and ghosts, including the most captivating stories in the Bible. Eventually, the fact that the "god" has not killed them all makes the villagers think that he is protecting them and he is "their god," and feel spiritually protected too, and they defend their god over the neighbouring village's god with no fear of being overzealous. How can you go too far in defending God, when he is good and on your side?

    When I meet Christians, who claim to be now pagans or witches, I always feel like asking them how can you tolerate all these people around you ignoring your god or gods? It seems unnatural, wouldn't he or they want you to strike out violently to teach others who has the correct god? Wouldn't that be the correct course of action? But of course they do not act like that because they are simply Christians larping as being pagans or whatever. Becoming a member of another religion is more like becoming a member of another race and entails belonging to a group in every sense and adopting a completely new set of norms about among other things: women's role in society, how you should treat animals, how society should be governed, what is acceptable sexual activity, punctuality, etc. There should be a constant clash of cultures between people of different religions, if they truly are different. Like non-practicing Jews that are still Jewish, all the atheists and agnostics of European descent you encounter everywhere that have no serious problem living in our society, are better described as non-practicing Christians.

    For though we are often proclaimed to be in a post-Christian society, it will not really be one until Christianity is replaced by something else (most likely Islam, which seems to be the preference of our elite), and that has not happened yet. Boomers may seem to be the most unChristian and selfish generation, in that not only did they not reproduce enough to keep our civilization alive, and are also not leaving anything in the way of jobs or healthy communities for the generations after them, but they are not non-Christians. They are simply demoralized Christians that have been encouraged to think that what they are doing is the right thing after having been intellectually beaten down by the popularized schools of thought that have become common currency in the media and education such as Psychology, Feminism, and Marxism.

    These philosophies seem to be inspired by a traditional Jewish desire to create heavens on earth full of perfect people, the afterlife never being a strong focus of their faith. Protestant countries like England and Germany did adopt versions of Christianity more influenced by an Old Testament view of life, in which one concentrated on making the most of things while one was alive on earth, embracing the material and transitory, and for a while were very financially successful and unsurprisingly behaved in a supremacist manner towards neighbouring Christian countries, seeing their own people as special or 'chosen;' but they have since lost faith in their heresies, apparently because these beliefs were not sufficiently European in the end to satisfy their European souls, and now these nations are the among the most lost and confused of Europeans.

    The Christian god that Europeans came to believe in is a long way from the folklore-based gods of other religions and it is rather the embodiment of a spirit of optimism and good will that sees that life and men are good but flawed, and believes in selfless heroism and a better life ahead. It is a god for dreamers and visionaries. It is a god, however, that will not exist if there are no Europeans left to worship it, and without it, it will likely be a world of such ugliness, violence, and despair that no European would want to live in it.

    My stance on Christianity hasn't changed, although I've known decent Christians. However, I still consider Christianity an alien religion which has destroyed a good part of our heritage and has the potential to eradicate us. I have an article as well, I've condensed the most important part too:

    Why Europeans Must Reject Christianity

    If all Western science and technology were to disappear overnight, the church would not be affected in the slightest; what matters is that the preaching of the gospel continues without pause, nothing else. Christianity and racialism are fundamentally incompatible ideologies.

    The Christian religionist is at a crossroads; he must choose between the gospel or the survival of Western civilization and the European race. He cannot choose both. A Christian religionist who is genuine can only side with the survival of Christian orthodoxy, otherwise he would be an apostate, forever denied eternal salvation.

    Christianity is a perversion of the instinct for self-preservation. This makes it a destroyer of entire civilizations and peoples. Embracing Christianity is an act of suicide for those who allow themselves to be influenced by its doctrines. In a world where evolutionary survival is a zero-sum game, Christianity stands opposed to the interests of the European race and Western civilization.

    Jesus Christ is a mythological figure. The gospel narratives, his personal "biographies," are not based on any underlying historical reality. What we know of Jesus comes not from eyewitness testimony, but largely contradictory hearsay written some forty or fifty years after his supposed death. Unlike the mythical Jesus with whom he is often compared, the philosopher Socrates is significantly more well-attested in the historical record. Contemporary eyewitnesses like Plato and Xenophon wrote detailed accounts of the life and death of Socrates.

    The Quintessential Middle Eastern Religion

    Christianity is, first and foremost, the invention of mostly illiterate 1st century Palestinian Jews, among whom Saul of Tarsus was the most influential. He later changed his name to Paul. He was often denigrated by his opponents as "weak" or "unimpressive" in person. A 2nd century extra-canonical source reinforces this impression, describing the apostle as "a man of small stature, with a bald head and crooked legs, in a good state of body, with eyebrows meeting and nose somewhat hooked..." Paul was the first to spread Christianity across the Mediterranean, imbuing the new missionary religion with a thoroughly expansionist character.

    Christianity is the quintessential Middle Eastern religion. Just because the language of the New Testament is koine Greek does not make this religion any less of a Semitic invention. To claim otherwise would be like translating the Analects of Confucius into English and then claiming that Confucianism is a Western religion because the medium used for its transmission is the English language. Even the few pagan elements in the religion, such as the Johannine prologue's use of the Stoic Logos, is filtered through the lens of Old Testament Judaism. The Gospel narratives are Jewish legends based on Jewish ideas of Messiah, resurrection, kingdom of god and so on. Not only is Christianity thoroughly Jewish in origin, but the major theological doctrines of the New Testament are derived from the Old Testament and the intertestamental Judaism of the Greek and Hasmonean periods. The spread of Christianity across the Mediterranean was the work of enterprising, itinerant Jews.

    As Christianity developed an established institutional framework within the empire, theologians began to find themselves in dialogue with Jews and pagans who were hostile to the new religion. These discussions necessitated the borrowing of Greek and Latin philosophical terminology to better express orthodox teaching with greater precision and clarity. This was done not only for apologetical purposes, but to win over cultured pagans by applying a thin veneer of intellectual respectability to the doctrines of primitive Christianity. Despite these cultural borrowings, Christianity remains a fundamentally Semitic religion.

    A Religion For Simple-Minded Folk

    Few intellectuals were ever attracted to the religion; those who converted became anti-intellectual extremists who turned their back on Western culture and civilization. Contemporary pagan philosophers frequently observed that the earliest converts were drawn from the ranks of simple folk. Celsus, an early pagan critic of the new religion, wrote that it was Christian policy to turn away the wise and the educated. "Their favorite expressions," wrote Celsus, "are 'Do not ask questions, just believe!' and: 'Your faith will save you!' 'The wisdom of this world,' they say, 'is evil; to be simple is to be good.'"

    The educated pagan was contemptuous of folk belief. They had to have some basis in science and philosophy. Anything else was "superstition." The triumph of Christianity led to a complete reversal of elite pagan values in late antiquity. The educated man now embraced wholeheartedly the beliefs of the semi-barbaric multitudes. The triumph of Christianity in the West was the triumph of a profound ignorance that lasted centuries.

    Destroyer Of Empires

    Christianity was a key factor in Rome's decline. When the church became the dominant institution of late classical antiquity, it became a significant drain on the economic resources of the empire. This was not a simple wealth transfer; funds for pagan temples and shrines were not simply diverted from secular coffers to finance ecclesiastical growth. Unlike the pagan cults, the Nicene state religion was administered by a vast centralized bureaucracy, whose reach was empire-wide and whose officials were more numerous and more highly paid than those of the state. Revenue that could have been used to improve infrastructure, such as the building of roads, bridges, aqueducts and theatres went towards the building of useless structures like churches and monasteries and the feeding of "idle mouths": monks, priests and bishops, who contributed nothing of material or economic value to the state. This tremendous waste of resources becomes even more staggering when one considers the relatively low level of technological and scientific development in the empire. Actual labor-saving devices were rare, so productive labor was done by hand or with the help of oxen. The amount of manpower needed to feed, clothe and house the "idle mouths" of the Christian church was considerably more than what was needed for a typical official of the Roman civil service.

    The Christian concern for "idle mouths" exerted a profoundly dysgenic effect on the European gene pool. Europe's cognitive elite, instead of passing on their genes, were encouraged to withdraw from society and embrace the spiritual discipline of perpetual chastity. This negatively affected average population IQ, leaving the church with an abundance of easily controlled and docile serfs less able to maintain the civilization around them with each passing generation.

    This was the world of Christianity: a world of profound darkness, where brutal men, under the guise of religion, tyrannized over a weak and helpless populace. The Dark Ages were Christianity's gift to Europe. They were ushered in by Christians, presided over by Christians and prolonged for centuries by Christians. Europe endured one of its darkest hours when Christians were at the apogee of their power and influence.

    Bringer Of Ignorance

    Christianity is dangerous because it elevates ignorance over reason. In the gospel, Jesus encourages his followers to be like "sheep," the most docile of animals. Here, the ideal Christian is a rustic character of little education. Jesus said that unless one becomes a child again one cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. In response to doubting Thomas, Jesus said: "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." The apostle Paul echoed this point of view when he wrote "the wisdom of this world is foolishness in the eyes of god." Through a program of religious indoctrination from cradle to grave, the church forced Europeans to accept these beliefs as so many divinely revealed truths from heaven. Widespread acceptance of these beliefs helped retard scientific and technological progress in Europe for over a thousand years.

    The fathers of the church promoted "holy ignorance" as an ideal to be emulated. Although considered a text-based religion, Christian teachings were orally transmitted until Gutenberg's invention of the printing press in 1440. Patristic and medieval Christianity viewed literacy in a negative light. Church tradition had always maintained that the first apostles lived in a state of "blessed ignorance." In imitation of these men, Christians refused to teach their congregations how to read and write, especially during the first three centuries of the church's existence. The ante-Nicene church produced no translations of the Bible for the indigenous populations of the provinces and frontiers, even though these populations were in regular contact with itinerant missionaries since the earliest days of primitive Christianity.

    The Christian church's deep-seated hostility to learning and scholarship, besides its positive estimation of ignorance and illiteracy, maintained western Europe at a prehistoric level of development for centuries. The 4th century, which saw the triumph of Christianity, was a period of significant intellectual decline. There were no great figures in science, architecture or medicine. The 4th century could boast of no philosophers of the same caliber as Plotinus; there were no great writers or dramatists. Schools were closed, higher studies were abandoned, and the pagan libraries were sealed shut. The intellectual and artistic productions of the age were of little depth and substance. The all-pervasive Christian hostility to the life of the mind brought about this age of sterility.

    Bringer of Darkness

    Theodosius was the first Christian emperor to systematically legislate paganism out of existence. He began by enacting a series of draconian measures, soon after his declaration that Nicene Christianity was the official state religion in 380 AD. Towards the end of his reign, legislation proscribing Hellenistic religion – the so-called Theodosian decrees – became increasingly harsh. This imperial program of cultural genocide descended into an orgy of violence and destruction in the final decades of the 4th century.

    Christians not only vandalized temples, they also mutilated pagan statuary and defaced inscriptions. Violent destruction of pagan religious artifacts is archeologically well-attested in the Levant and Africa, where Christian iconoclasts were at their most active. This pattern of destruction was empire-wide and can be seen in places as far away as North-western Gaul and Britain. Far more destructive than the temple destruction carried out by Christian zealots was the imperial anti-pagan legislation ending all subsidies to the once thriving polytheistic cults of the empire. Without subsidies from the imperial treasury, pagans were unable to maintain and repair their religious monuments. This was reinforced by additional legislation ordering the closure of all shrines and temples, threatening pagans with death if they continued to practice haruspicy and animal sacrifice. This condemned the empire's major structures and artistic monuments to permanent disrepair and eventual ruin. The widespread Christian vandalism of late antiquity was the largest campaign in world history to destroy an entire civilization's artistic and architectural heritage.

    There was widespread, active destruction of heretical and pagan writings through book burning. The literature that was burned was chiefly of the magical, astrological, religious, philosophical or anti-Christian variety. People had their limbs amputated for copying heretical and other banned books. The entire ancient corpus of magical, astrological and religious literature was so thoroughly destroyed that nothing has managed to survive. We know that many pagans wrote against Christianity, but the fact that barely any of this literature survives is a clear indication that what Christianity could not dispel through reasoned argument, it silenced through brute force.

    The monastic scriptoria played a major role in the church's eradication of all secular knowledge. The monks would recycle parchment from secular manuscripts by scraping off the ink with a mild acidic solution; a "washed" parchment was then re-used for the copying of Christian manuscripts. This was subsequently known as a palimpsest. For centuries, manuscripts overwritten with patristic, biblical and liturgical texts were almost always of pagan origin.

    The Christianization of 4th century Rome made the church sole inheritor of the great storehouses of ancient wisdom that had been accumulated throughout the centuries. As pagans dwindled in numbers and influence, the monastic scriptoria came to dominate textual transmission, especially after 400. Guided by ecclesiastical censure and canon law, the scriptoria, with few exceptions, ceased copying secular writings for over 300 years, severing medieval Europe from the great scientific and technological achievements of the ancient past. Works of science and philosophy, some well ahead of their time, were discarded by ecclesiastical officials as rubbish.

    Without the life-giving knowledge of the ancient world, maintaining an advanced pre-industrial civilization became virtually impossible. Christian censorship and suppression of secular knowledge is the main reason behind Europe's descent into the Dark Ages after the collapse of imperial rule in the West.

    A man with a classical education was no longer as highly esteemed as he once was before the age of Constantine. The leaders of the empire's most powerful institution, the church, contemptuously dismissed their learning as mere "worldly wisdom." In the eyes of the church, reliance on the faculty of reason alone was the mark of demonic possession, a path fraught with snares for lost souls on the way to eternal damnation in the fires of hell. The educated man was condescending and arrogant; he was too sophisticated for the simple message of the gospels. An educated man would also question Christian doctrine, even embrace heresy, making him especially dangerous from an ecclesiastical point of view.

    Bringer of Filth and Disease

    Ecclesiastical censorship and suppression of Western scientific and technical knowledge facilitated the spread and transmission of disease across Europe. This operated in tandem with the Christian denigration of the human body as a vehicle for sin. Instead of searching for the natural causes of disease, as the Hippocratic writers once did, the official doctrine of the church discouraged the practice of medicine by attributing all bodily ailment to the results of sin and diabolical possession. This retarded progress in the healing arts, leaving Europe at the mercy of disease for hundreds of years.

    Human sexuality was regarded as a necessary evil, to be avoided except for procreation in marriage. The church also discouraged Christians from bathing because concern for the body was viewed as an obstacle to salvation. Although it came very close, the church did not officially ban personal hygiene. Instead, the Christians who ruled Europe allowed the great network of public baths that once dotted the empire, including the aqueducts that supplied them with water, to fall into a state of permanent disrepair.

    In the Rule of St. Benedict of Nursia, only those monks who were sick and infirm were granted permission to bathe. Monks in good health and the young were encouraged to wallow in their own filth and excrement. Benedict's rule was the most influential in the history of Western monasticism. It was embraced by thousands of medieval religious communities as a foundational monastic text.

    Bringer of Violence and Bloodshed

    The spread of Christianity cannot be understood apart from the use of force. The barbarians who invaded the western empire had to convert to Christianity as soon as they set foot on Roman territory. Conversion to the religion was a condition of their migration and settlement on imperial soil. They would not have been allowed to participate in Roman society as pagans. Christian missions located beyond the imperial frontiers would typically focus on converting barbarian rulers and their courts. Once the king was made to accept the new religion, he would then compel his followers to convert along with him.

    The church successfully defended Europe from invasion, argue some apologists, but nothing could be further from the truth. Charles Martel's confiscation of church property to defend Europe from Moslem intruders was met with significant ecclesiastical opposition. Christianity provided no adequate defense of Europe. The church only did enough to maintain herself as a viable institution. In the process, the church weakened Europe, making her ripe for conquest by the Umayyad and Ottoman caliphates.

    Christian origins of modern liberalism and socialism

    The "anticipatory" consequences of spiritual equality meant social and economic equality for the church, leading to the establishment of formal communism in the early Christian communities. This was not just philanthropy, but a highly organized social welfare system that maximized the redistribution of wealth. Early Christian communism was widespread and lasted for centuries, crossing both geographical and ethno-cultural boundaries.

    Reformers sought to recapture the spirit of primitive Christianity by incorporating egalitarian and majoritarian principles into an early modern ecclesiastical setting. Egalitarian thought was first enunciated in Luther's teaching on the universal priesthood of all believers. In contrast to medieval Christian teaching, which viewed the clergy as members of a spiritual aristocracy, Luther proclaimed all Christians equally priests before god, with each one having the same capacity to preach and minister to fellow believers. He also defended the majoritarian principle by challenging the Roman ecclesiastical prerogative of appointing ministers for Christian congregations. Calvin, the other great Reformed leader, acknowledged the real-world consequences of spiritual equality, but approached it from the perspective of universal equality in total depravity.

    Protestant radicals viewed the egalitarian policies of the mainstream Reformed churches as fundamentally inadequate; any concrete realization of Christian spiritual equality entailed a large-scale revival of the communistic socio-economic practices of the primitive church. The Munster Rebellion of 1534-1535, led by Jan Matthys and Johann of Leiden, was far more extreme in its radicalism. After the Anabaptist seizure of the city, Matthys declared Munster the site of the New Jerusalem. Catholics and Lutherans were then driven from the town, their property confiscated and redistributed to the poor "according to their needs" by deacons who had been carefully selected by Matthys. They set about imposing the primitive communism of the early church upon the town's inhabitants. Money was abolished; personal dwellings were made the public property of all Christian believers; people were forced to cook and eat their food in communal kitchens and dining-halls, in imitation of the early Christian "love feasts."

    John Locke was the founder of modern liberalism, a political tradition soaked in Christian religious dogma. He drew many social and political implications from Christian spiritual equality. His belief in equality was rooted in the firm conviction that all men were created in the image of god, making them equal by nature. Locke's theory of natural rights was based on biblical notions of an idyllic prehistory in the Garden of Eden.

    "Utopian" or pre-Marxian socialism was an important stage in the development of modern leftist ideology. Its major exponents, Blanc, Cabet, Fourier, Saint-Simon and Owen, were either devout Christians or men profoundly influenced by the socio-economic and ethical teachings of primitive Christianity. They often viewed Jesus of Nazareth as a great socialist leader. They typically believed that their version of communism was a faithful realization of Jesus' evangelical message. In the pre-Marxian vision, the primitive communism of the early Christian church was an ideal to be embraced and imitated. Many of these writers even defended their communist beliefs through extensive quotation from the New Testament.

    The earliest pioneers of socialism, all of whom maintained socio-economic views grounded upon Christian religious principles, exercised a profound and lasting influence on Marx. The numerous similarities between Christian communism and Marxism are too striking to be mere coincidence. Without the dominant influence of Christianity, the rise of modern communism and socialism would have been impossible.

    Spengler's observation that "Christian theology is the grandmother of Bolshevism" is a truism. All forms of Western communism are grounded in the Christian tradition. The same applies to liberal egalitarian thought, which was also formulated within a Christian religious milieu.

    Just how destructive is Christianity?

    Christianity maximizes the survival and reproduction of the genetically unfit at the expense of society's more productive members. It promotes the mass invasion of the West by foreigners of low genetic quality, especially from the Third World. By lowering collective IQ, Christianity has accelerated Western civilizational decline. Neo-Christianity, in the form of liberalism and cultural Marxism, has inherited the orthodox Christian high regard for the genetically unfit. Christians and neo-Christians have even provided the necessary economic and political means, i.e. welfare statism and human rights, for ensuring that the genetically unfit breed large numbers of offspring with each passing generation. This has created an "idiocracy," one that threatens the sustainability of all Western institutions. With each passing year, an enormous fiscal burden is imposed on the state for the support and daily maintenance of this growing class of dependents.

    The Christian belief in the sacredness or intrinsic worth of all human life means that the religion is best regarded as an inherently anti-eugenic force. This Christian hatred of race improvement has manifested itself throughout European history. Christian monasticism and the priesthood, which removed Europe's most gifted men from the gene pool, helped prolong the Dark Ages by hundreds of years. Christian opposition to eugenics may also be driven by a recognition that actual religious belief is correlated with genetic inferiority.

    For the first time in history, Western man must choose between Christianity or the survival of his own civilization. We can only hope that he chooses wisely as the "hour of decision" fast approaches.

    A Europe without Christianity?

    Understanding Christianity through the prism of group evolutionary strategy can shed light on the significant threat the religion poses to Europeans. In a world characterized by in-group ethno-racial preference, absence of a group evolutionary strategy allowing populations at the species and sub-species level to survive and replicate is highly maladaptive. Christianity undermines group survival by suppressing natural ethnocentric tendencies and maximizing the spread of dysgenic traits.

    Aggressively pro-active measures against Christianity are certainly ethically justifiable in the face of Western decline and European racial extinction. In this essay, a more scientific approach is recommended. The European intellectual, before he devises any plan of action, must first acknowledge that no other biological process is as important for humans as evolution through natural selection.

    Christianity, a transvaluation of all values driven by ressentiment, is a slave morality. It is the revolt of the underman against the aristocratic Indo-European virtues of strength and magnanimity, pride and nobility. By repudiating Christianity, Europeans will become a race of value-creators, once again in charge of their own destinies as they affirm the beauty of life in all its fullness.

    The New Testament is biased in favour of 3/4 of the major Centum branches of Indo-Europeans: Greeks, Romans and Celts, all given the future of Christianity after the Apostles died, by the hand of Paul, who refused to entrust it to the Hebrews, them that would formulate the Talmud in response. Sure, the glaring omission has to be of Germans, but we were over the horizon and had not made it to Carthage, for instance, just yet. The major Heathen religions are all Satem in origin, from India, whether Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, or Jainism. Among Satem Indo-Europeans, many had merely aped the Christianity of Centum worshipers, rather than follow Subcontinentals. As for Germans, we all know how monumental the influence of this heritage has been upon Christianity, whether through Arianism or Protestantism. Are Germans closer to fellow Centum I-E, or non-Christian Satem I-E? Who knows Ockham's Razor?
