Law, Grace, Love, and Evil are all great themes in scripture and in life. For many Christianity has become list of platitudes and self serving scriptural interpretations. But when we dig deeper we will find that the Christian story is one that touches the fundamental elements/themes of human ontology and our existential lives lived in a broken world. No other worldview can incorporate the elements of our fundamental ontology as does Christianity. This blog and web and forthcoming book will take one into a deeper understanding of Christianity than can be found in the general discourses on the subject and hopefully will serve as what I would call ontological apologetics because Christianity is the fundamental answer to many of the mysteries of our existence.
While Dr. Ernest Becker never espoused Christianity as his belief system his understanding of man’s fear of death is one of the most important keys is understanding the Christian faith and serves in many ways as psychologically empirical evidence for the truth found in this faith. In it we also the find the etiology of human evil.
Central to this is Hebrews 2:15
” Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.“
How well scripture parallels human existential reality.
At no time in history has mankind been so mesmerized by artificial media. The majority of the media that surrounds us is designed to present false worldviews. Scientists and the media complex have studied mind control extensively and use this to control our actions and culture. As these control mechanisms extend and proliferate through new medias it becomes ever more apparent the truths that Dr. Becker delineated to us. Few can reach the insights into this mind control system unless they recognize the efforts that are made to disguise the real reality of the existential situation in which we live.
Most of us have been deceived by this sophisticated artificial matrix that has been constructed around us.
Playing upon the “fear of death” marketers and media entities pander to escapist propaganda and the presentation of distortions that get absorbed into the cultural and societal collective unconscious. Between this blog and the Thanatopian Institute’s website many of these deceits will be exposed. Some of these distortions are done purposefully and others done unwittingly.

False and corrupt worldviews can be fertile psychic ground for manifest evil. Evidence can be found throughout history. Often these corruptions to our conceptions of reality are done purposely and with malignant intent. Those guilty of the propagation of lies and censorship as exhibited in most of the media and academia in the US are among the most vile of human beings. Lucifer is the father of lies and thus the father of these persons. Many are unwitting accomplices in the dissemination of lies and whose rationale cognitive abilities have been corrupted by worldly endeavors but it is important for those of us who move toward the light to develop our skills in spiritual discernment and cleanse ourselves of worldly vanities.

Some people are motivated to discover truth. I am one of those. Of all things in the world I covet truth. Some people covet money, others romance, others fame and power. But I got this for my quest for better or worse. In my journey down this path I discovered Kierkegaard, Kafka, Jung, Tillich, and many others. But when I read Dr. Becker’s work called The Denial of Death I realized that he had synthesized the essence of our ontological natures and I found this book to be one of the most important works I have ever read. He proposed that our fear of death was the major prime mover in the human ontological makeup. After the basic needs of the person were met then the quest for a metaphysical system became of supreme importance because of the individual’s comprehension of their finitude. This was over 30 years ago.

Then I went on for advanced degrees and continued myquest for truth. Things became stagnant and despite having access to very good libraries I became bored and felt that no one really could guide me much further in my quest. Becker’s book was brilliant but intellectual epiphanies became less frequent.
That is, until, I started my journey down the rabbit hole. Reality IS stranger than fiction. Truth is censored and one has to throw off conventional platitudes and dusty tombs of worthless musings from encrusted minds whose pineal glands were long ago calcified.
Sometimes he gets some courage up.
This blog will to some degree reconstruct my journey down the rabbit hole to the construction of a worldview that is again meaningful and of use to me in my daily struggle for truth and survival. This journey has in many ways taken me full circle back to my adolescence constructs and interpretations of reality (similar to Ecclesiastes in Bible) . I had to leave behind many dimwitted so called scholars and political pun-dents. Chances are that if you seek truth you will not find it in the regular pathways of academia or contemporary culture. Begin to look twice and three times at ideas and persons before you dismiss them. This site is basically tool that some could choose to use in the development of worldviews and will provide some links that will connect you to some resources that I use and to elaborate on the basic premise that false worldviews are the cause of great evil in this world.
