Explaining the Belief System Trifecta: Theism, Religiosity, Spirituality… – VIDEOa


Belief systems are far more complex when you realize there are three potentially separate gradients on which systems exist- and while they are often intertwi…

    Yes the terminology. A theist believes in a supernatural intelligence who,
    in addition to his main work of creating the universe in the first place,
    is still around to oversee and influence the subsequent fate of his initial
    creation. In many theistic belief systems, the deity is intimately involved
    in human affairs. He answers prayers, forgives or punishes sins, intervenes
    in the world by performing miracles, and is concerned about good and bad
    deeds, and knows when we do them (or even think about doing them). A deist,
    too, believes in a supernatural intelligence, but one whose activities were
    confined to setting up the laws that govern the universe in the first
    place. The deist God never intervenes thereafter, and certainly has no
    specific interest in human affairs. Pantheists don’t believe in a
    supernatural God at all, but use the word God as a non-supernatural synonym
    for Nature, or for the Universe, or for the lawfulness that governs its
    workings. Deists differ from theists in that their God does not answer
    prayers, is not interested in sins or confessions, does not read our
    thoughts and does not intervene with specific miracles. Deists differ from
    pantheists in that the deist God is some kind of cosmic intelligence,
    rather than the pantheist’s metaphoric or poetic synonym for the laws of
    the universe. Pantheism is sexed-up atheism. Deism is watered-down
    theism… Myself, I am still tying to figure out, how is it that I am
    seeing.. So I tend to think of things or question them from an Ontological
    way of looking at them… Meaning, Can one give an account of what it means
    to say that a physical object exists? What is a physical object? Which
    entities, if any, are fundamental?

    Allot of really good points, I especially liked the term De facto Atheism,
    each person’s truth will be different in regards to what they see or feel,
    sort of like your encounter with that Owl like creature. The videos you
    make encourage critical thinking in areas I think allot of people don’t
    enter due to programing via constructs, some of which I’m in the process of
    destroying in myself as well. I also wouldn’t mind seeing videos on your
    own practices in the occult as well; if it’s something you’d be willing to
    share, e.g. Ritual theory, Personal Practices, why you do them, etc. Not so
    much to parrot, but I sort of look at you as a Anti Bullshit Professor and
    would really be interested in seeing your take on things.

    In my experience most major atheists, at least on you tube, don’t claim
    that there is no God. They simply think there is no reason to believe in a
    god in the absence of all evidence. This is what people like The Amazing
    Atheist, Jaclyn Glynn, The Bible Reloaded have made explicit. It would be
    silly to say with absolutely certainty that there is a god and visa versa.

    Rarely do I ever see and Atheist fervently attest that a god could exist,
    unless they are trolling.

    Just a little critique of your assertions based on my experience.

    I recommend Manly P. Hall. Anything he writes. ya ya he’s a mason but a lot
    of masons have a really good grasp on these subjects. They do take it from
    various ancient cultures so nothing they have is original. Also Mr.666 I
    recommend the channel “Danny Wilten”. He’s pretty awesome.

  • Tim Green January 4, 2015 at 10:56 pm

    See this is the reason I subscribed, someone to challenge my thought
    process, someone who uses logic as an effient means, why did I have to be
    born stupid, why couldn’t I’ve had more natural intellect, instead I’ve had
    to work to the bone to achieve it, this reality sucks,I hope that
    scientific mutiverse hypothesis is correct, the problem is I’m to left
    brained, creative.

  • TheRadrussian1 January 4, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    i have no choice but to believe in spirit/god/universal consciousness
    whatever. there are only so many times you can wake up looking down at your
    own physical body before you start to question the nature of reality.
    feeling the “gnomes and the faeries” has nothing to do with it for myself
    and many people like myself. 

  • Amy Burr January 4, 2015 at 11:28 pm

    “It’s asking me to question the way in which I perceive reality”? That’s
    Satan. You still sound like a Satanist. Whenever someone thinks they have
    their beliefs all lined out, Satan smacks em upside the head with an
    apparent contradiction. I understand not wanting to confine yourself within
    a title though because as you said it can get more complex than just that
    and titles are limiting as far as othrrs’ perceptions(u care?) Can you do a
    video on how your beliefs became more complex than Satanism; I know you’ve
    said you used it to deprogram yourself but I mean even more detailed like
    how your beliefs exactly evolved and why; Satanism is for alot more than
    just deprogramming; who says you can’t still be a Satanist plus the newer
    spirituality combined? Any combo is possible as you pointed out.

    I am atheist . I been one all my life. I do have Christmas.
    I do Christmas to be family. Do you do Christmas ?
    I am curious.

  • Mr Green January 4, 2015 at 11:54 pm

    Styx! I’m pretty similar in my views. When first looking into Satanism is
    how I came across your channel and I’ve never left. I get a certain amount
    of intellectual satisfaction listening to your opinions. Anyway, I’ve come
    a long way since then and I also haven’t been presented with a God that I
    can agree with although I do kind of have a justified belief in something I
    wouldn’t call God, but others may. I know you have a lot of experience with
    psychedelics, do you have any opinions on DMT? It is a fact that at the
    time of death our bodies will undergo a massive DMT trip, among other
    chemicals, and if you’ve ever experienced one yourself you’d know it’s a
    very spiritual experience. Just like to hear what you have to say about it.
    Always a pleasure man, keep doing what you’re doing.

    My personal opinion, as an atheist, is that the word ‘spiritual’ means
    emotional. My conversion to atheism was accompanied by a very profound
    emotional experience very similar to my original dedication to
    Christianity. It is almost impossible to put emotions into words as we all
    I have been an atheist for the past 10 years, maybe more. My son died
    young earlier this year. I believe he and I will never meet again but, just
    as right now and when I too eventually pass, we will be forever connected
    because we are part of a universe where nothing is lost except
    consciousness. That to me is a profoundly spiritual/emotional/inspiring
    thought. Everything is part of the whole. The whole might disintegrate in
    some cataclysm but the everything will still be there.

    MAke it easy on yourself, Just go full Agnostic. That way all your bases
    are covered. Works for me. Like a charm!

  • I Love you January 5, 2015 at 12:41 am

    To be atheist based on your own opinion is one of the worst ignorance. This
    guy is try to tell us that all religions and there beliefs is false and he
    is trying to convince us whatever his mind is telling him which is ased on
    his believe.

    I want to add one more thing when he was talking about Islam i didn’t agree
    what he was saying because he didn’t said it right.

    I want to say one more thing did anyone here when he said if christian
    proved to him that Christianity is true or show him Jesus and then Jesus
    showed to him hell or heaven still he would not believe Jesus.

    So if this guy will not believe even after he realized the truth from any
    religion so how can we agree or believe what this guy is saying.

    I don’t have much to add to the analysis presented in this video, (except
    perhaps that I am personally not a skeptic of the Christian faith). Outside
    of that point however, this is generally the way I would assess these three
    distinct, but often interrelated subject areas. I do however see some value
    in pursuing alchemy from the standpoint of psychology, and therefore don’t
    think of it as an anachronism in our present “scientifically oriented” age.


  • jeff derice January 5, 2015 at 1:33 am

    Very interesting video you have broaden my horizon.

  • Aestro Ai January 5, 2015 at 1:50 am

    I enjoy that you use a Clear, and thorough method for exploring beliefs in
    this world. Most people never sort out what they actually believe, so it
    astounds me that they can place any value on those beliefs. I lean towards
    a Gnostic understanding of Jesus for example, but I feel like it’s a huge
    mistake to spread my personal understanding. That’s the McDonald’s

  • TibusHeth January 5, 2015 at 1:54 am

    Peter Owen Jones has called the US the most religious country in the world
    and the least spiritual, and India the most spiritual and least religious.

  • Edward Coppers January 5, 2015 at 1:57 am

    One of your better videos, not to say that your other videos are flawed.
    Thank you.

  • iamwhoiamwhatiam #Skippy-Pip January 5, 2015 at 2:11 am

    Why dose creatures and dreaming have an intuitive link to me. LOL at the
    sweet elf related videos at the finish. Damn you elves always fucking with
    my garden.

    You should do a video explaining how you became Pagan.

    Enjoyed it.

    Here’s a “New Age’ religion based on fanatics, the Zecharia Sitchin crowd
    Scientology not Science, and mocks other professionals in the field of
    Science. Sci-fi crowd loves this introduction of Scientology. Reminds me of
    “Theosophical Society” by Helena Blavatsky, in India, she was “a cult
    figure for several years, until a housekeeper who had formerly worked as a
    magician’s assistant exposed the tricks by which Blavatsky had been fooling
    her followers.” The exposure became known as the Coulomb Affair.
