TV and Social Media are defeating God and Religion. This blog looks closely at what communication progress is doing to Religion. Humanity finds itself in a new period, the time of the infowar.
Have we ever wondered why Religion is on the decline? The Creator is unpopular, and extremists are on the rise.
I have been doing some research, and there is a straightforward logical explanation: The answer to these questions is common sense, logic, education, and alternative media.
The book “The gods were Cosmonauts” by Erich Von Daniken described two incidents about 70 years ago. The first incident occurred in the Brazilian rainforest. Here is where two scientists need to land their small plane in the middle of the jungle.
When the pilots successfully brought the plane to an emergency landing, they encountered an Indian Brazilian tribe, which had never seen other humans before. They have never seen or used TV, radio, or any communication devices.
For the tribe people, the flying man from the sky in a strange flying machine arrives. They were showing their fire from a device. And bringing them gifts must have been the experience of a lifetime.
Do flying machines arrive from the sky, “Messengers from our Supreme Being”?
Scientists returned after 40 years to the same place. The local tribe had built a plane out of wood on the spot the scientist landed 40 years ago. All of the tribe members were worshipping the plane of wood. The Tribe people think after fourty years, their prayers worked, and the “Gods” came back.
Another similar story happened in Japan. Just after the second world war on,e of the remote islands of Japan. One military airbase became a ghost place. Thirty years ago, all military and personnel left the island.
The “Deities” came back thirty years later.
When the Americans returned 30 years later, they found local island inhabitants running around with papers. They moved from one place to another at the old military airbase.
Every day the inhabitants would repeat running around the same area. They hold a stack of papers in their hands. They were moving these papers from one place to another.
When the Americans ask the tribe members what they are doing, the answer surprises them Americans. They witnessed a long time ago this ritual (military personal running around in the camp with papers and yelling). Some “Gods” would come out of the sky and bring canned food. The food would arrive in big cargo planes.
Goods and food were delivered from a plane when it arrived. For the inhabitants, their prayers are heard, and free canned food and goods from the sky are back.
So, what humans do not understand quickly becomes the explanation to justify the supernatural / God.
Humans have come a long way, and the age of technology has sped up communication between humans. The list is endless: Google translates, Smart Tv, Androids, Skype translate, instant messenger, Facebook, Google +, Linked Inn, chat boxes, YouTube, mobile smartphones, and Ipads. What was science fiction just a few years ago is the reality now:
Star Trek technologies became a reality.
This Technology revolution is great for the transportation of news. And for the communication between people. But there is also a “downside” for the people who have been in control for ages. You have Julian Assange, The Anonymous Group, tons of hackers, whistle-blowers, and alternative media these days.
Anybody can start their TV Channel on YouTube its Childs play. The corporate media newspaper and TV owners controlled and paid for by the big corporations are rapidly losing territory. Sure, many of us are still fooled by manipulating false flag operations.
They even deceive us through crisis actors, blue screens, and fake witnesses. Like Nazism, Goebbels and Hitler manipulated the press to get their fellow Germans on their side. Religion is no different. Anything for a follower is the motto.
Tragic Events for Political Purposes.
We even have to ask ourselves whether the Sandy Hook school is shooting a Hoax. The shooting took place in the US, with tons of children dying. This was big news worldwide. Journalist Pierce Morgan is upfront promoting the gun control agenda. If some of the tragic events are false flags or not, the media and politicians milk events like this for propaganda purposes.
All to push agendas of politicians and other people of interest. Tv did the propaganda job for a few decades, but it’s lost 1000-1 to social media. Google and Social Media have rule life on earth for the last few years.
The Vietnam war started because of a lie called the Gulf of Tonkin incident.
Religion is having problems because of the speed of information and the discoveries by scientists. I would not go to the Darwin evolution debate now, which I had with religious people.
The plague (Black Death/ Spanish flu virus) was a punishment from God in those days. Easy scare tactics by a scam artist. Priests spread fear to win souls for the Church and for gain power and control. We know now about bacteria and viruses and more and more about the history of the earth. Copernicus discovered we are not on the planet located at the Centre of the universe.
The Hubble Telescope.
We know the Hubble telescope shows us billions of Galaxies. You cannot find this information in any holy books except in the Star Wars “stories.” In December 2021, the James Webb telescope was launched, and the images it sends to earth are mind-boggling.
Suppose you are an Imam or some holy religious person spreading the word of “God.” The spiritual person’s persuasion to win some souls is fearmongering, preaching about God’s anger, and he now brings the plaque, storms, and flooding stories.
Today, those religious people will find it harder and harder to convince people to follow their Religion. New sort of religions does emerge, such as “Climate Change.” The government bans The TV series The Bible rules from broadcasting in Malaysia. Recently Egypt made a Fatwa against online chatting.
All this is a desperate attempt by extremists to keep their control over other people and their sex slaves. Why do ISIS and other extremists not want you to communicate, listen to music, hate freedom, or forbid women to learn? Saudi Arabia does not even allow women to drive cars (when I wrote this blog).
Now you know the answer, which is also the number one reason why you should die if you decide to leave fate. The religious community is so afraid you would leave the cult. That punishment by death is imminent.
The extremist (mentally ill) knows that when women get an education, they can develop opinions and questions and think for themself. They know it is impossible to control their “kettle” if other ways provide a better life than women hiding in a garbage bag. That information could lead to an uprise and disturb their ruling.
Control over people in the early days. You just needed a great speaker and a charismatic person.
Jesus started his religious empire with just one guy and a story writer, and “he” got over a billion followers. Mohammed also begins as one person. Fear, stupidity, and threats created a lot of followers. In those days, protection and fear were easy ways to get many followers rapidly.
Today our government still does the same – problem, action, solution.
The almighty God can create universes, but Jesus and Mohammed need humans to write the bible and Quran. You also can see that in devreligiongrow like Islam.
In developing countries, the pope is struggling to keep up with the trend of modern new followers of the faith. How to allow condoms and gay marriage (this was unheard of less than 70 years ago)?
If you are starving, wishful thinking is one of the only options. With a good speaker and some good scary stories, the sheep are ready to follow some cult without thinking for themself.
The pope says now they are investigating gay marriage;
Pope says Condoms are ok in some cases. He welcomes gay marriage, anything to desperately keep followers for the Church.
It’s a sign of the times. We’ve got to give what most people want to stay popular.
Hitler’s speeches and propaganda machines created a nation of blind followers and the start of the 2nd world war.
Religion has serious interpretation problems of their “holy” scriptures.
Online Today: Beheadings, sex slaves images, chemical warfare, a woman in garbage bags, children with Kalashnikovs, Fatwa’s, Jihad, Holy war, Crusades it’s all taped and recorded. Everybody can see it through all media available.
I am not a fan of the Kardashians, but I assume that if a woman in a garbage back looks at the “problems” of the Kardashians on TV, she might not believe this happens on this planet. It sure looks like a better way of living than hiding in a garbage bag in the desert.
There is fashion TV. Everybody with a satellite connection can receive the channel. CNN now has CNN Arabic.
We find superstars like Justin Bieber thru a YouTube video clip. Super talented young artists make incredible careers through reality TV shows like the Voice. The history channel and the discovery channel bring to target audiences precisely what they want to see.
Modern New Day “Supreme Being” Mark Zuckerberg
If there were a God who knows everything (or a damn lot), it would be Mark Zuckerberg. The youngest billionaire who created Facebook (The King of Social media) has more information from individuals from all nationalities than all intelligent agencies combined. That would make him for sure a modern God today.
And when you have many followers, and you’re famous and seem to know many things, some of us still would name that “God.”
Who said an Atheist could not be like the Almighty?
Let’s speed things up, and instead of shooting cruise missiles and throwing bombs from planes, we should drop smartphones on a parachute and have drones with free Wi-Fi in every corner of the world.
Big tech will rule the world, regardless of whether the religious community likes it. The problem is, who controls Big Tech? They have control over the world’s population, especially with social media. Too much control can never be a good thing, especially not if the control is in the hands of dark forces.
Interesting times ahead
Love & Peace
