Neither Theist nor Atheist

14 November 2013, 06:54

Neither Theist nor Atheist


The intent of this article is to get people thinking openly about religion in order to see the world we live in with for what it truly is. As the title state, I see myself as neither a theist nor atheist. I do not believe in just following because someone of “authority” thinks something makes sense to him. My point of view is a result of my upbringing, reading various religious and historical text and finding some proofs within me.

It is not my expectation to get people to believe my point of view, but rather to get the reader to think and want to search for their own answers and make up their own minds. None of us has all the answers, we only have some of the answers and we immediately take the podium in judgment of someone else’s beliefs and some of us are prepared to kill and maim to get our point of view across.

History v Religion v Science v UFO-logy

None of these exists in a vacuum, therefore devotees of either should always strive to understand and respect the other’s point of view in order to enhance their own knowledge. My reference to religion includes all organized religions (Abrahamic, Hinduism, Buddhism, Pagan, Voodoo, etc) and also non-organized religions such as African, Red Indian, etc.

Although devotees seem to believe their chosen belief are thee way of life and gives them the right to bash fellow human’s beliefs; it is my intention to how all complement each other and lead to one source. There is ample reference in most religious text to both science and UFO/Extra-terrestrial involvement in human history. There is also a lot science cannot explain that can only be explained by looking at the information from religious or UFO-logy point of view. Where we fall flat as humans is our limited understanding of the information in front of us and arrogance to listen to the opposing point of view with an open mind.

Creation v Evolution

From Abrahamic religions, specifically Christianity, John 1 ver 1 – 3 “In the beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god…. 3 All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence.” Most religions have something similar on creation. Let us look at this from evolution and big-bang point of view. To do this I would ask the reader to view this youtube video This shows an experiment in which various “sound” frequencies are applied on sand to create complex geometries. Now looking at the bible verses with the knowledge of what sound frequencies can achieve, could the “Word” being referred to in the bible actually mean “In the beginning there was Sound and the sound was with the Source, and the Sound was a source. All things came into existence through the sound”

Science cannot not dispute there is intelligence in nature, in fact they support it with things like the “Golden Ratio” and mathematical symbols. Where the dispute comes in is with the identity of the supposed intelligence.

God’s Identity

In traditional mythologies such as African, Red Indian, etc God’s identity simply means “The Source”, which is similar to the New Age Movement. In terms of organized religions as well as ancient mythologies, the identities differ and the find the origin of these identities one only needs to look at world history and UFO-logy. For example, looking at Kemet (Ancient Egyptian) and Sumerian history; there is sufficient evidence that shows the identity of those gods where extra-terrestrials called the Anunnaki. These are believed to have manipulated ape-man DNA into what we look like now. Note that I did not use the word “create” as they did not create humans but rather used science after millions of years of evolution through “sound frequencies”.

The same can be said with Hindu gods. Their origins are also traceable to Vega and are also extra-terrestrial. Now let us look at the Abrahamic religion’s god. To me it does not matter whether you call him YHWH, Jehovah, Allah as all three religions are worshiping the same god. There are several reference in the bible that tells us the origin of this god. Job 9 ver 9, Job 38 ver 31-33, Amos 5 ver 8, 1 Enoch 18-19 all refer to Ki’mah and Ke’sil constellations. A quick search of the location of these constellations reveals that the Abrahamic god is from the Pleiades/Orion star system. Therefore he is/was also an extra-terrestrial who could not have created the universe.


My intention with this article was not to criticize neither Religion nor Atheism, but rather to point out neither is complete. It is my humble opinion that:

1.       There is an intelligent source to life and he/she is not interested in us wasting time is church, temple, or any religious house because we were create in his/her likeness. Our true being/form is immortal and godlike therefore we should not be looking outward for a good as we are each our own god.

2.       We need to awaken to the fact that we are multidimensional beings capable of creating our reality, teleportation, telepathy, etc. The time for that awakening is NOW. We need to trust ourselves completely and stop relegating our power to sum powerless religious leaders.

3.       Religious text should be read as and with other history text, especially the Abrahamic religious texts, as there is other history text that puts these into context.

I sincerely hope that this article will get a few of the readers thinking and looking inward for answers because that’s the best source of guidance you going to get. It is not my place to prescribe and impose my point of view, all I can do is to hope to touch someone into finding the truth.
