A Must Read

…well anyway. YOU ARE READING THIS FOR A REASON. You may not understand it at this point in time, but it is not a coincidence that you have found yourself gazing at these words and interpreting their meanings. You are reading this right now and ‘right now’ is all there is. You can think of it as though you yourself or your consciousness, if you will, is creating this post as you read. These words don’t exist without your mind/consciousness producing them. In a sense, you are the one who is writing this post. You create your own reality and you are reading this because you are meant to read it. You are special. You could’ve been doing an infinite number of other activitites, but for some reason you are staring at this screen as sucking this all in. With that said, from here on out on this post, whatever is written in these coming words is completely profound. It is your destiny to be reading this, and if enough of a narcisstic impulse is generated within you, you will treat this as law…

Don’t be a prick. All that destiny and fate stuff is a load in the dishwasher of crap. There is no such thing as destiny, since the universe is created through free will. If there truly was such a thing as fate, there could be no free will. Science tells us this is so. That is how evolution occurs. Just consider new science advances like the Chaos theory. You aren’t reading this for a reason. You are only reading this because you chose to by your own impulse and random chance…

You’re going to hell. Science is a load of bullocks in the washing machine of life. Well, science is useful in certain senses, but really the only tool for truth comes from Jesus Christ and reading the Bible. If you want to find out the truth about reality as opposed to all the earthly falsities, there is only one thing you need to do: study the Bible. But that’s not enough. You need to repent from your sins and get saved through our Lord Jesus Christ and the blood that was shed in the greatest sacrifice in all of mankind’s history. God gave his only Son just so you can be saved from hell. I feel as though it is my duty as a Christian to share the word with you that you may be saved. You are reading this post because God loves you and God is a jealous God, and he wants you to join Him in His kingdom. I know that if you are not a Christian now and have accepted Him in your heart, this might not seem meaningful to you. But I hope that somewhere deep down you can see the Truth and perhaps later you will come to love Christ as I do. For all the readers who are down with G-O-D, we should plan a get-together soon for some food and Bible readings; no heretics or heathens or pagans allowed.

Well, if you can’t tell I’m being a bit tongue-in-cheek, whatever that means. I was just trying to poke a little fun at people’s tendencies to believe whatever they want to believe. I don’t think there is anything wrong per se with adhering to certain worldviews, but what one believes to be true has certain consequences. Some people are simply blind to their biases and prejudices and don’t realize they are only seeing the world through a tiny lens. Other people stand firm on their slanted opinion because put simply, they think they are superior to others and want to be on the (perceived) powerful and special side. Of course, you’re assuming that I don’t fall into this category, since I’m pointing it out in others. Well, I do have my own opinions and my own truth as I understand it now. I’m not saying that their is no ultimate Truth about the true nature of things because that’s a stupid postmodern poststructuralist stance is false simply by that fact that the stance itself claims to be true while denouncing ultimate Truth…read Ken Wilber. So what I’m trying to say is that my understanding currently is limited, but I hope I come near what’s really ‘real’ or at least I continue to improve my understanding. I see that I’m biased, but hopefully it’s just out of ignorance and not superiority. Take whatever you want from my future posts, or if you start thinking I’m an idiot, stop reading immediately (why waste your time?). There’s plenty of other ‘blogs’ out there apparently…plus I can be a bit long-winded. I want to get out my ideas as incomplete/faulty as they may be because life’s a process. Welcome to the rainforest of the notes from Russ…
