Why must we celebrate birthdays??

Posted in Uncategorized by ephebophile on May 17, 2010

A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday but never remembers her age.”

-Robert Frost

 

Last week the candle factory burned down. Everyone just stood around and sang Happy Birthday.”

-Stephen Wright

 

From our birthday, until we die,
Is but the winking of an eye.”
– William Butler Yeats

 

Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen.”
– Mark Twain

 

 

Well I hate birthdays, because all my friends feel obligated to give me a gift and their attention, and make me special… when I am anything but. I seriously blame women’s overarching attachment and desire to coddle their offspring for creating Pomp and Circumstance needlessly. It was taken to an extreme by a very wicked woman, named Semiramis… and she started a false religious tradition that affects us to this very day.

So why do we celebrate Christmas on 25th December? Some people say it’s as good a time as any, and it doesn’t really matter when Jesus was born as long as we celebrate his birth at some time.

Jesus would not have celebrated his own birthday because it wasn’t a Jewish custom to do so. It never has been, except insofar as they have picked up the idea from the Gentiles.

However, if we are going to celebrate the birthday of Jesus, December 25th is the very worst time to do it. The reason is that we are not celebrating the birthday of the real Jesus of Nazareth at all, but the birthday of Nimrod, Osiris, Jupiter, and all the other re-incarnations of the child-god of the Babylonian religious system, including the baby "Jesus" who is held in the arms of the Roman Catholic Madonna.

To understand this, we have to go back to Genesis 10:8-10.

And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before (in opposition to) the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before (in opposition to) the Lord. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

The Bible does not identify Nimrod’s mother, or his date of birth, but Egyptian and Babylonian clay tablet antiquities identify his mother as Semiramis, and his birthday is celebrated on 25th December. Sometimes Semiramis is referred to as the mother of Nimrod, and sometimes as his wife, leading to the belief that Nimrod married his mother.

The Biblical reference to Nimrod as a "mighty hunter" is important because he was seen as the Saviour of the ancient world for that very reason. People were living in small, scattered villages with little protection from wild animals. Nimrod was more than just a hunter, he was also a charismatic figure who could gather people together to build walled cities where they could live in safety. They were obedient to him as their leader, and considered that their loss of independence was a price worth paying for the safety that Nimrod and his kingdom offered.

There is nothing in the Bible about the death of Nimrod, but the ancient traditions suggest that he died a violent death. One tradition says that he was killed by a wild animal. Another says that Shem killed him because he had led the people into the worship of Baal.

His wife-mother, Semiramis, who had risen to greatness on his account, was not going to disappear into obscurity because of his death. Instead she pronounced him to be a god, so that she herself became a goddess. She produced another son, and proclaimed him to be the resurrected Nimrod. This was not difficult, because she was so promiscuous she produced many children whose father could not be identified. She proclaimed that she had gone down to the world of the dead, rescued Nimrod and brought him back.

Thus began the worship of Semiramis and the child-god, and the whole paraphanalia of the Babylonian religious system. After the decline of Babylon, the religion was transported to Egypt where they worshipped Isis and her son Osiris (otherwise known as Horus). The same mother and child deities appeared in Pagan Rome as Fortuna and Jupiter, and in Greece as Ceres, the Great Mother, with the babe at her breast, or as Irene, the goddess of Peace, with the boy Plutus in her arms.

The Roman Pagans used to celebrate the birthday of their child-god on 25th December, and the Roman Catholic Church sought to win over as many people as possible to nominal Catholicism by proclaiming the same day to be the birthday of Jesus. So the Pagans had no difficulty worshipping the Catholic Madonna and child. They were seen as yet another manifestation of the Queen of Heaven and her son. The Pagans made no compromises, they didn’t need to, they just continued their Pagan worship within the church.

While it’s easy to knock the Catholic Church because some of the catholic people engage in Maryolatry, the Protestant rebels cannot be left off the hook. The Protestant Reformation dispensed with only a part of the Babylonian system of worship. The celebration of Christmas, inherited from the Roman Catholic Church, via Pagan Rome, via Egypt, via Babylon, is still practiced as the most important event in the Protestant Christian calendar, so from that point of view the Protestants are as much into Paganism as the Catholics

The Christmas tree is specifically a Babylonian symbol. On Christmas Eve the Yule Log is thrown onto the fire, representing death and destruction. On Christmas Day there is the tree, covered in decorations and surrounded with presents, representing new life, the resurrected Nimrod.

It is also a violation of Jeremiah 10:2-5 where it is denounced as a heathen idol:

Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

 

So.. just tread carefully on your next birthday… I know I do.

Deconstructing the (non)plot of Avatar

Posted in populist culture by ephebophile on February 3, 2010

Failblog's Comment on Avatar's script

So, reader … whats a guy with a pulse and an IQ over ummm say 90 going to do with this? Since Titanic blew all box-office records out of the water 12 years ago, JC has been minting movies but taking his time, to make a Epic trilogy.

Why is this today’s topic, well I am talking about this because Roissy in D.C. brought it back up today on his blog.

http://roissy.wordpress.com/2010/02/02/the-hurt-locker-vs-avatar/

Oddly enough, I first broached the topic in comment on his blog back on Jan 22, 2010…

http://roissy.wordpress.com/2009/01/23/black-men-white-women/#comment-153576

The following excerpt is relevant to the topic at hand:

But in reality, the Avatar is nothing new (outside of bleeding edge CGI) all truth be told.

Its yet another chapter in Hollywood’s “gynoptic” fixation/fetish with the Noble Savage Archetype.

He seems to be agreement with my excerpted comment.

Roissy brought Avatar up in a new discussion of the oscar fight vs The Hurt Locker, consequently we’re going in deeper, with my own views on the subject. (more then a comment box worth)

While the views are manifold, the meta-concensus verdict of avatar critics is a sharpening sticks and poking at the lack of originality of this movie. I am going to summarize:

Its as if James Cameron took Ferngully, Dances with Wolves and Disney’s  Pocahontas and tossed them into Final Draft Pro and hit the blender button

What does he have to say for himself?

His defense on Oprah: “‘There’s a fine line between cliché and archetype that touches something universal.”

My take on that…

Um ya, its called Lowest Common Denominator, and it touches more wallets.

If he is guilty of anything (which in fact, HE IS)  its following Joseph Campbell’s monomyth, also referred to as the hero’s journey, which refers to a basic pattern found in many narratives from around the world.

Read “Hero of a thousand faces” and you will know exactly what I am talking about or read the cliff-notes version by Vogler. More on Vogler in a moment.  {I already knew JC was using monomyth, but then I bothered to confirm my own findings with some google searches}

http://sammyray.com/812/the-use-of-archetype-in-avatar-versus-star-wars/   This was the top result… And it nails my point perfectly.

Now back on point, who is Vogler?

Christopher Vogler, a Hollywood film producer and writer, created a now-famous 7-page company memo:

“A Practical Guide to The Hero With a Thousand Faces”
{Google around for it}

His memo was based on Campbell’s work which later on, inspired films such as Disney’s 1994 film, The Lion King. Vogler’s memo was later developed into the late 1990s book

“The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure For Writers”.

This story structure is evident in a vast number of successful Hollywood films including the Matrix series.

So whats the deal with Noble Savage fixation?

The problem is that Hollywood goes for formula because it works and is generally profitable. Indies also understand it, and hate it, and try for something original… and usually fail because of a want for distribution resources.

But viewers get gypped at the box office more and more, and there is no way to tell if its a stinker until after you have bought your tickets.

Gold-plated feces sparkle like anything else… but its still the same old crap.

What Did Jesus Preach?

Posted in The Christian Faith by ephebophile on January 28, 2010

I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him.

–Napoleon Bonaparte

As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene….No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.

-Albert Einstein

A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.

-Mahatma Gandhi

Nuts and bolts stuff…

Jesus Christ came to earth as a messenger from God the Father:

Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts. (Malachi 3:1)

Jesus did not speak His own words, but the words that the Father gave Him (John 8:38-42; 12:49-50; 14:24).

His message was not, I repeat, not primarily about Himself, but rather the good news that the Father ordered to be announced on earth.

While Jesus Christ was categorically the most important individual ever to walk this earth, the Bible shows clearly that the gospel that Jesus taught was not simply about Himself:

  • And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. (Matthew 4:23)
  • And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. (Matthew 9:35)
  • Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:14-15)
  • [Jesus] said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.” (Luke 4:43)
  • Now it came to pass, afterward, that [Jesus] went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings [gospel] of the kingdom of God. (Luke 8:1)
  • The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail. (Luke 16:16-17)

The inspired Word of God makes it abundantly plain:

The “good news” that Jesus Christ brought was about the Kingdom of God!

The “gospel of Jesus Christ” is simply the message of good news that Jesus preached.

Its not a message about Jesus.

It is *not* primarily a message about the events in His life and of His becoming the Savior of the world.

Although it most certainly does include all that,

But if the events of His life are not seen in the proper context, the resulting “faith” will be full of error and ultimately disastrous!

His announcement of “good news”:

what is the very best news that could be heard today?

The good news which the Father gave through Jesus Christ, was about His Kingdom. But what is a kingdom? It is essentially a nation, with all of its citizens, land, and laws, ruled by a government.

In biblical usage, a kingdom can also mean a family from a single parent grown into a nation.

A kingdom has four basic elements:

1) a king, supreme ruler, or governing agent;

2) territory, with its specific location and definite boundary lines;

3) subjects or citizens within that territorial jurisdiction;

4) and laws and a form of government through which the will of the ruler is exercised.

If we ignore any one of these essential elements, we will have a distorted faith & one that will not bring salvation.

If we as believers, hold anything to be dear, its His message from the Father, Prepare yourself for the Kingdom for it is Coming.

We say over and over that Jesus is coming soon… but how many of us are ready, to enter into the kingdom that He will be bringing shortly thereafter?

Motherhood and Feminisim

Posted in Against Feminism by ephebophile on January 27, 2010

“Morality and its victim, the mother – what a terrible picture! Is there indeed anything more terrible, more criminal, than our glorified sacred function of motherhood?”

-Emma Goldman


The immaturity of the degenerate narcissistic sociopath is the made evident by lengths {even murder?} at which one will go to avoid taking their place as a member of society who is accountable for their actions. (aka Adult).

The degenerate narcissistic sociopath is the antithesis of one who can sacrifice ones own needs and desires for the needs of others (they will claim, that this its not the case as if they fight for all women, a bald lie).

The Feminist movement while making many claims about “female empowerment and equality” serves only the purposes of the Welfare state (Marxist!), its social engineers who manage to keep most women under the jackboot of  a misandristic,  self-absorbed, secular materialistic, government interventionist (be it affirmative action or  hyper-divorcisim) victim oriented mindset.

Oh Save me, Big Brother!

From the evil males who would make me grow up, who ceaselessly rape me, and try force me to be a heterosexual,  mother-housewife, and/or prevent me from earning more in the workplace, or keep me illiterate and uneducated. I am so incapable of protecting myself!

They bear witness with their own dependent actions, and make themselves wards of the State, and still Minors, not yet having earned their age of Majority. Nothing but retarded & irresponsible little children… in woman’s bodies. (pic related)

To the Feminist retards out there, I have two words for you…

“Grow Up!”

The Whore, and the Porn Star

Posted in The Christian Faith by ephebophile on January 25, 2010

“Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them.”

-JERRY FALWELL, Crossfire, May 17, 1997

Pornographers in the United States have often said that while the act of prostitution is illegal, adding a camera to the event gives them the protection of the First Amendment. They have been given carte blanc to operate the business of prostitution by another name. The non-crime has multitudes of virtual “Johns” who vicariously fulfill their decadent behavior, through the “actors and actresses”.

The pornographers however fail to understand something very critical. The First Amendment is God given right, and not derived from the government. It is first, Inalienable (cannot be taken away), for them to claim it, and be in denial about the existence of God is to undermine their very claim to protection. If they are correct <which of course they are not> then what the State has given, the State can, and shall take away. But understand that God bestowed it. Secondly, because it was in fact, God who granted it; it follows that His standard of judgment for the use or misuse of the gift remains in full effect.

How then does the God of the bible view pornography?

While camera’s didn’t exist when the new testament was being written…. the very word porn comes from that era. Its sourced from a greek word. πόρνη    ( pornē) and it’s primary meaning is whore. Its closely tied to porneo which is “all manor of sexual acts”, outside of the confines of a wife and husband relationship.

Translations from this Greek word into other languages use the term “sexual immorality”

For example:

Ephesians 5:1

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.”

Eh?  So what is the conclusion, where was the author of Ephesians going with this?

For of this you can be sure: No sexually immoral, impure or greedy person—such a man is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.”

Where would porn consumers, pornographers, porn stars and whores go, if the don’t stop practicing their activities?

Its quite clear that it is someplace other then heaven.

Are you suggesting that the bible says that Sex is bad?

Not in the least, only that the bible makes the following distinction:

Sexual activities that God approves of are those that do not defile the marriage bed. Remember that the bible says: He gave His blessing to humanity and said “Be fruitful & multiply…”

There is only one way to receive that blessing, and it requires using the sexual body parts.

But wasn’t Jesus friends with whores?

As a matter of fact he was, and he said: “I assure you, Tax Collectors and Whores will enter the Kingdom before you” while addressing the Priests, Preachers, and Religious Lawyers.

He said it to their face! But lets also remember the fact, that He on separate occasions, told a whore: “I forgive you, Now stop sinning unless you want something worse to happen to you”

There is a way to say all of that with just one word.

In fact, Jesus used that one word alot.

“Repent”



Count your blessings, Ladies… the clock is almost run down.

We live in an age where news around the world is delivered within an instant.  Bad news sells newspapers, but sometimes, they shouldn’t make a profit. Certainly, at least, when the profit is made out of  the suffering of pain, misery, and death of human beings.

Only one thing in my mind, is  more reprehensible:

The willful subjection of a group, confiscation of their goods and wholesale liquidation of  their existence that is… their very lives. I hate this part our human history:

The millions of Jews and other minorities under Adolph Hitler. Millions of Laotian and Cambodians under Pol Pot. The tens of millions (55) of Slavic peoples under Joesph Stalin. Over 100 million Asians under Mao Tsedoung.

Marxism is ULTRA lethal.

As is its offspring of “class warfare” out of which we get  “gender warfare”. In the west, we have been told to call it Feminism.

In its name 52 million unborn United States Americans have died, & its still killing. And I have no numbers for the millions dead, in other countries. At no time in history, has it ever been more hazardous to be created within a human womb.

Men are being systematically enslaved & destroyed, their livelihoods pillaged, their property confiscated, their reputations smeared, their honor questioned, and our utility & purpose demeaned.

Did the singer knowingly Lie or did he actually believe what he said was true when he sung:

I’m Proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m Free. And I won’t forget the men who died

who gave that right to me. And I will gladly stand up, next you to, and defend her still today.

American Males are not Free.  They don’t recognize the front lines (in the bedroom, classroom, courtroom, & newsroom), and that this is not a life fire exercise. Its total war.

The truth is that we are asleep in a house that is burning down around our ears. We said our prayers, and went to bed and assumed ourselves safe in the arms of our wives, sisters & mothers. (pic related)
