Public speaking at major forums and conventions is very good for one's career in analysis (as is writing for the Strategic Culture Foundation) although often these events can be time consuming for little or no payment. But, when I was presented the chance to be part of a panel on the bizarre topic of "Religion and Ecology" at the 5th International Christian Forum in Moscow I simply could not resist. Everyone talks about the dynamics between the US vs. Russia, Trump vs. the Deep State, and the SJWs vs. Reason, but what is the dynamic between Religion (especially Christianity) and Ecology?
After a few nights of ponder and research, I put together my speech, the core argument of which is that traditional Christians and Eco-activists have polar opposite views on the nature of man, thus there will always be a massive unfillable gorge lying between Orthodoxy and today's Green movements.
Christianity says that God is good, absolutely pure righteous good, and that we are made "in His image" and that we are "His children",however, we are also heavily flawed and damned by Original Sin. Despite having the potential to be good and holy origins we will all commit sinful acts but by following the teaching of Christ/The Church we can rise towards a state of piety becoming at least less sinful than we were.
[Ron: I disagree. The idea that we are flawed and damed by Original Sin is a LIE inserted into the Christian religion by Pharisees who influenced Roman Emperors to establish the Christian religion. Esu Immanuel (aka Jesus the Christ) did not incarnate to establish a religion and didn't. The Pharisees who forced the Romans to crucify Jesus also ensured that the Christian religion was created so that they could distort and even eliminate core teachings by Jesus. Jesus incarnated to teach divine truths lost over millennia and corrupted by Pharisees and others. For instance Jesus taught that every ensouled human being (HUman) is an only begotten (ie unique) son or daughter of the Creator. Accordingly HUmans are not flawed and damned and there is no such thing as "Original Sin".
HUmans are eternal spirits created by God and indwelt by a fragment of Creator consciousness. They incarnate to experience life in the physical for the Creator. To allow them to experience physicality they have to suffer amnesia, ie forget their spiritual origins, and that means that they need to learn about life the universe and everything from scratch. That process is necessarily slow and fraught with difficulty and so HUmans make lots of mistakes as they live and learn.
Other LIES the Pharisees inserted into the Christian religion included that because of 'Original Sin' HUmans are sinful and unworthy of their Creator and so they needed to have God's "only" Son, Jesus, incarnate and "sacrifice" himself in 'atonement' for their sins. In other words HUmans couldn't save themselves (ie become 'AT ONE with God') no matter what they did and so they needed a "saviour". This is nonsense. Each HUman is indwelt by a spark of the Divine just as Jesus was. And each HUman incarnates to learn about life, the universe and everything and through the knowledge and wisdom gained from experience in the physical, each HUman must eventually learn to overcome ignorance and error (mistakes falsely called "sins" by the Christian religion) in order to 'save' self.This is why we need myriad incarnations to complete that process. Obviously the Pharisees did not want humanity to understand this divine truth and so they concealed it along with the truth about reincarnation - the essential process through which HUmans gradually learn about life, the universe and everything.
To understand how the Pharisees used the Christian religion to distort Jesus' teaching and deceive humanity on this planet be aware that they influenced Emperor Justinian to eliminatefrom the Bible virtually all references to Jesus' teaching about reincarnation . This was finally achieved during the Fifth Ecumenical Council in 554 AD. At that time Emperor Justinian arrested Pope Vigilius for Believing in Reincarnation and had the Council declare:
Eradication of the doctrine of Reincarnation, ie knowledge that the evolvement of life and hence MIND is based on the reincarnation process (which is essential to enable spirit beings incarnating into physicality to avail themselves of a sufficient number of physical incarnations to adequately explore and understand the immensity of life, the universe and everything) is the method used by the Pharisees and neo-Pharisees, ie Talmudists who call themselves Jews but are not, to convince gentiles (ie all who DO NOT accept Talmudism) that they are merely physical creatures having one, only, lifetime which has no meaning, destiny or purpose. Concomitantly this LIE, reinforced by the Talmudists' coercion and funding of scientists to accept and promulgate false science about life, the universe and everything as typified by falsely promulgated Darwinian evolutionary theories about the Origin of Species, has made it easy for Talmudists and the Christian religious puppets they control, to instil fear of death into congregations. The truth is scientifically explained by Bruce Lipton. See eg: Bruce Lipton - Fear vs Love State and Stress's Effects on Your Body -http://abundanthope.net/pages/Other_Spiritual_Pieces_68/Bruce-Lipton---Fear-vs-Love-State-and-Stress-s-Effects-on-Your-Body.shtml
This process of inserting LIES into Christian teaching and the Bible has made it feasible for Talmudists and materialists generally, to distort human consciousness and science by having scientists, academics, educators and commentators as well as the MSM, promulgate false and ridiculous ideas about consciousness arising from random chemical reactions. This also enables Talmudists et al to contend that people on this small planet on the edge of the universe are the most, and probably the only, consciously intelligent beings in the Cosmos. LOL.]
From the Christian perspective humanity despite some brutal moments in history is NOT inherently evil, just sinful,[Ron: ie ignorant and mistaken] which can be atoned for or forgiven, or minimized through the grace of God and a lot of hard work by the individual Christian in question.
Environmentalism teaches us the opposite and paints a very different picture of the nature of man. The Green/Vegan/Eco crowd see humans as an all-consuming pestilence on the planet. Each one of us through our modern life style consumes and thus destroys the planet that they claim to love. From an Eco worldview every human is a detriment to nature and there is really no repentance for this status. We consume, consumption is harmful to nature, thus we are all evil.
[Ron: Environmentalist ideology is just one of a host of demonic Talmudic ideologies foisted upon humanity by neo-Pharisees, the heirs of the Pharisees and their forbears Kane and Canaan et al. Other Talmudic ideologies include Capitalism, Communism, Bolshevism, Fascism, Nazism, cultural Marxism, Feminism, LGBTism and all the rest. ].
The great dreams of our ancestors: quick transport, light at night (besides candles), automatic heating/cooling and maybe most of all abundant food are nightmares to those Ecologically minded. All of the triumphs of man, that would make our lives look kingly to a Medieval peasant are "bad for the environment", as their infrastructure is space and resource consuming and is bad for animals/animal habitats. The more we customize the world to suit us, the worse it gets for plants and animals which do not fit the [Ron: grossly Talmudically distorted] human habitat mold.
This view of things is the reason why you will never meet a hardcore Green that isn't absolutely convinced that the world is "over populated" even if he is from a small European country with a declining population. This desire to "cull the herd" is a deep inalienable component of the Eco [Ron: Talmudically created] mindset. They[Ron: the neo-Pharasiac, Talmudists]need humanity to dwindle down to save the planet and so this type of worldview is hardcore pro-abortion. Feminism has more-or-less destroyed the family which makes it a key component of Green movements all over the planet - no traditional family = no more children. The whole LGBT thing also works out for Ecology as sex that does not lead to procreation for them is the only good kind.
Christianity on the other hand needs a stable flow of new Christians being born and sees children as a blessing so it is strongly anti-abortion and always pushes some kind of pro-family agenda, as a good family is the factory that produces children. Traditional religions gain the most new members through birth + indoctrination, thus any religion [Ron: or society] which rejects this position is doomed to extinction.
The Christian doctrine preaches that man is NOT an animal and is the superior form of life on Earth. God made man in His own image, not cows or dogs. Additionally, God gave us domain over the planet and it is up to us to maintain this prime piece of real estate, but ultimately "it's a man's world" and we will determine how it shall be damned by the opinion and feelings of other inferior forms of life.
Environmentalists believe that man IS an animal and that we are no different and no better than say dairy cows, endangered parrots or house pets. In fact since humans are the only beings capable of polluting and destroying the Environment we are actually WORSE than animals to Green thinking individuals. The concept of "Animal Rights" could have never come from traditional Christianity[Ron: I disagree. HUmans are the divinely responsible guardians and protectors of the planet and ALL of its creatures and ecology] as putting man and rat as equals under God is blasphemous Satanic nonsense, but since rats are incapable of destroying the planet from cattle farming and using too many fossil fuels they are at least our equal (if not superior) in the dogma of the [Ron: Talmudic] church of Environmentalism.
What I have written above may sound shocking or conspiratorial, so it is my duty to provide some examples of how Environmentalists see man as evil to support my claim. If you take 15 minutes of your time you can find many more articles that support the views presented in this short list.
Should We Make Mars More Like Earth? A group of adult men with degrees seriously discuss if humans will ruin the "environment" of extraterrestrial planets from their colonization/terraforming. The question "will humans ruin Mars?" is actually a fairly popular topic and shows how those concerned with preserving nature see contact with mankind as a disaster.
The LGB community is working hard to save the world: New research finds that gay men and lesbian women are disproportionately represented in the anti-war and environmental movements. Again, non-procreation oriented sex is preferred when one is committed to reducing human population and there are many links between environmentalism and LGBT. This is NOT a conspiracy but a natural ideological overlap.
In closing, I would like to transform this piece from an interesting intellectual exercise of comparing two ideologies that I have never seen compared before into something of value. The main thing we should take away from this is that we need a pro-Human environmentalism, that tells us thatwe humans are an amazing rarity that may be truly unique in the universe[Ron: I disagree. Human beings in varying forms of meat suit inhabit trillions of planets in the cosmos. Our plant, Gaia, is a small planet near the edge of the Nebadon universe which is near the edge of Orvonton, the Seventh Super Universe in the Cosms.] and that we need to maintain our planet, colonize and maintain others so that the glory of our flame will never be snuffed out. Man is good, he is just a bit irresponsible and at times sinful [Ron: ie mistake prone. In fact HUmans are gods in the making.].
