Does Christianity act as a spiritual botnet? It seems like the belief system has a built in spread function. Anytime I see Christians posting on this board or interact with them in real life it feels as though you run into a brick wall where the only way to engage any further is to adopt their viewpoint for the sake of conversation. If you don't adopt their beliefs for the sake of conversation they default to their conversion function. Very rarely does the Christian adopt the non-Christian point of view, even if only for the sake of hypothetical discussion. Is this simply built into the belief system like a Chinese finger trap designed to retain converted members? It's to the point where someone mentions Jesus and I immediately check out because I already know their every talking point and they will likely attempt to save me by attempting to convert me by imposing the same conversation I've already had with other Christians. It's like deja vu. Maybe I'm being too cynical but it feels impossible not to notice this phenomena at some point in one's journey into the paranormal and spiritual.

    Even if most of them are too dense to understand the deeper metaphysical implication of their faith, that sort of deep convinction for better or for worse safely roots them in their choosen timeline.

    There isn't any justification one can give to tell another human being how they envision life means nothing, and that goes for Christians. The artistic process is expressing ones individual vision in creative form, Christianity offers people hope at the cost of crushing their dreams, that was always my problem with it. But considering how self insistent Satanists and Pagans are these days you could say that they also thrive off of crushing peoples dreams.

      So you would say that the self-insistence in and of itself, regardless of belief system, lends itself to the crushing of others dreams? How so?

        Well, crushing the dreams of others is a survival instinct, a normal response I guess. I've just never followed the herd mentality I so I envision life beyond the base level thoughts that drive the motivations of others. Whether we realize it or not beyond external factors at the level of the soul everyone has an individual vision to contribute to the canvas of art that is life. When someone falls for the trap of hypocrisy and percieves their art as more important than others even though such thinking is motivated by insecurity and fear and is not based on reason then that insecurity leads to this disturbed individual percieving other people's visions as a threat to their security. This manifests as all religions being a way for the individual to safeguard their ego using their religion to protect themselves from anyone who might threaten their security from questioning their worldview. Not that it matters because that would defeat the point but my religion is based on helping others live their art, not just as some corny saying but that art is literally divine creation and in helping others live their individual dreams I am assisting in the process of divine creation.

          Would that mean Scientism is a way of protecting the ego of it's followers? Ego driven "intellectualism" is not too scientific, kek.

            Science is based on what we can explain using physical laws. Faith is more of an intuitive pondering of the unknown, and a more deep spiritually, and personal pursuit. You can learn from others just as well but I wouldn't trust that crystal lady at the festival offering spiritual ketamine regardless.

            I said Scientism not science which is an overt propogation of empiricism negelecting the human spirit in favor of cold and reptilian ways of thinking. Ironically it is such ways of thinking that so called scientists use to protect their ego because they fear that which is unknown, propgating beliefs due to a subconscious urge to protect ones ego is not scientific.

          I see, yeah I'm on pretty much the same wavelength. That makes me curious though, in your view does something like Zen Buddhism which specifically addresses the ego simply be a meta ego protection mechanism (similar to other religions only more "self-aware") or would these ego-related practices retain merit? Maybe it would simply come down to how self-insisting each individual practitioner is.

            In my opinion Buddhism is a self defeating prophecy because it seeks to escape suffering yet suffering can be easily escaped if one does not percieve it as such. Or that escaping suffering is impossible without self knowledge, Buddhism denies the individual from what I know therefore in the context of Buddhism the paradox of suffering can never be reconciled. So Buddhism can be viewed as a safeguard to protect the ego in that the ego fearing suffering denies the existence of suffering. However I think some of the meditation and philosophy of Buddhism can be useful for increasing self understanding.

    The only reason you come to this conclusion is because you interact with Christians in a Christian-dominant society. Do the same with Muslims in an Islamic-dominated society, or a Hindu one, etc, you'll get similar results.
    That is the nature of 'religion'.

    This is a problem with most humans. Hylics as some call them, and as Christianity is the majority religion the West, they're the largest religious group you'll encounter this problem with. Hindus and Muslims do the same thing, because most humans do. They aren't capable of adopting hypothetical viewpoints that don't align with their own, some aren't even capable of considering themselves to be in a different situation someone else might be experiencing.
    There are Christians who are more enlightened. Unfortunately many of them have become militantly opposed to other worldviews as well, which goes hand in hand with Abrahamic religions, since they are naturally imperialist and spiritual supremacists.

    Hypothetically speaking, why would I adopt non-christian worldview or viewpoint when christian worldview is the truth? And if I would think otherwise, I would not be christian, would I?

    Once you see the light which is Christ, you dont want to stay in darkness. Even the very shadows where you once abided become repulsive to you.

    So no, I dont want to go back to Plato's Cave after seeing the living light of truth.

    You are saying as if former drug addict now rehabilitating should take drug positive stance for the sake of niceness.

    Christianity is not nice. Goodness is not nice. The evil can be nice, as there is nothing nicer than saying that you are perfect as you are. This is not what Christianity or Jesus says.

    Simply put, to be Christian is to lead a christian life.

      >why would I adopt non-christian worldview or viewpoint when christian worldview is the truth
      there is 0% that the christian worldview is the truth. An omnipotent and omnipresent god would never be able to expound his will through words and language nor would a finite being like a human be able to comprehend it. That alone would give rise to an incomplete and incorrect revelation. And thats without taking into consideration all the nonsense in the bible.
      > And if I would think otherwise, I would not be christian, would I?
      If each culture saw a diferent facet of divinity, then maybe there is something to learn from them. Humans are divine inspired beings and no humans is fully bad or fully evil, that means divinity resides in everyone and you can learn from everyone
      It's also a sign of intelligence to consider other points of view
      >Once you see the light which is Christ, you don't want to stay in darkness. Even the very shadows where you once abided become repulsive to you.
      literally all the major religions say this. You just close your eyes and pretend you don't see it.

    Referring to the structures of trust and power within churches, it's easy for them to be steered and it's a frightening thing to see. Everyone is trying to grift them for their own political ends. Many know better than to await an earthly kingdom. In this way they have unlikely allies.

    Yes and the reason for that is the insane amount of indoctrination these people go through when they're kids. Children are like a blank page. They know nothing, believe in nothing and have no paradigm yet. All children are born like that. But what happens next? The parents will automatically give THEIR belief system to their children WITHOUT their consent. How can you get consent from a child? You can't. But here's the problem: most of the time these kids will grow up and their entire worldview will be eternally fricked because they grew up around people with only ONE religious view. All they see around them is christians, who by the way have absolutely no fricking idea about ANYTHING in christianity. They don't know its origins, they have never read the bible, they don't know who wrote it, they literally only know like 2% of it and YET they make their kids christians who proceed to get absolutely bombarded with christian propaganda through their friends, youtube, people around them etc.

    Now the kids became adults. Not all of them turn out the same. Some will leave this religion as soon as they're able because they're very resilient to mind programming, others will completely ignore it until they face a predicament and that's when they will ask help from their god who obviously never answers anything because these guys do not worship the actual creator of the universe. Now some of them unlock a whole new christian character, the one we call "christcuck" and they embody this character with every fiber of their being. The christcuck is someone who got brainwashed so heavily into worshipping, admiring, submitting and cucking themselves out to a literal israeli rabbi whom they have never met, never seen, never heard, never interacted with. They become convinced that this dude is somehow god even though they have never seen any evidence for it but again because of all the brainwashing, they bypass the need for evidence and just believe it.
