A case of demonic ignorance in my own life

War is Hell, they keep telling us. And demons from hell use war. I have to wonder if I would have fallen into sexual and gluttonous sin as easily, had my condition been understood at a younger age. As it was, I was in my mid 20s by the time Asperger's was included in the ICD-10 coding which, after 20 years of comments, is becoming mandatory in the United States for insurance coding October 1, 2014, in the CM and PCS revisions. It was first included in the DSM-IV in 1994- I was already 23. I wasn't diagnosed until I was 30, and I've spent the last 10 years of my life analyzing myself and dealing with the effects. I have a ways to go, especially in the area of gluttony- I'm currently more than 120 lbs overweight. Many of the material effects of what some in an earlier age would have termed a Spiritual Truth about me, are hard to deal with- it is as if there is a portion of my brain I can't control; and for many years, refusing to acknowledge this truth did great harm to my relationships.

Where would we be with my mental illness had Hans Asperger's hospital not been bombed out in 1943?

Demonic ignorance is real, but it is NEVER the fault of the ignorant. External forces have been trying to hide information needed to make rational decisions for a very long time.

The difference is that Jesus wasn't lying or delusional- 2000 years of history prove that one.

Once again, you're letting the demon speak for you. The true natural reason why people believe in the supernatural is because they have had experiences with the supernatural. The only lie is the one that hides evidence.

Funny how atheists are never skeptical about their own skepticism- or the purposes behind skepticism.

There is nothing in the 2,000 years of Church history that proves that Jesus was not lying and/or delusional. The whole of Christianity rests on the misperception that he rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. If that isn't a lie or delusion, I don't know what is.

There is plenty in the 2,000 years of Church History proving that Jesus was not only not lying or delusional- but that the Resurrection was real.

The problem is you've got a demon that is refusing to let you look at the evidence for what it is, instead of under demonic bias.

First of all, I don't know of any proof of the Resurrection and Ascension. I am sure they are stories that were made up and passed along becoming more incredible each time they were told until they were finally recorded. We know today what people didn't know when the stories of the Ascension and Assumption were made up. They thought that Heaven was up in the sky and therefore the idea of Jesus and Mary flying up, up and away to Heaven was possible to them. We now know that, even traveling at the speed of light, they would have not left this galaxy, let alone this universe.

This is rational thinking and it is not the thinking of demonic possession. Your thinking, on the other hand, is dominated by a false set of religious beliefs that you seem unable to rise above.

Yes, you are sure they are made up, so none of the confirmations since then, none of the eucharistic miracles, could possibly have happened.

The key part is " I am sure they are stories that were made up"- the prejudice against the evidence, like a vaccine inoculation against a disease. The evidence doesn't matter, because you *started* with your mind made up.

That is not rational thinking at all, that's reductionism. Which I am beginning to suspect is demonic in origin.

Theodore Seeber said...

Why would reductionism or materialism or naturalism have to be demonic. Just the way you obsess about sex when debating gay marriage, you obsess about disbelief in the supernatural being inspired by demons.

Some people just refuse to acknowledge the supernatural. It might mean they are thick, but it doesn't have to mean they are demon possessed.

Theodore Seeber said...

"Why would reductionism or materialism or naturalism have to be demonic. "

Because it causes people to do evil. Lust or greed are the two favorites in America- but hiding information affects all seven deadly sins.

Do you even understand what I am accusing these three isms of? BAD SCIENCE. Ignoring data that doesn't fit the lie.

Theodore Seeber said...

Ok. Let's just take naturalism. What makes naturalism bad science. Does science have to cover angels and demons or can it just conclude that they don't exist or that the study of them is not science.

Theodore Seeber said...

You can't reject *ANY* data- not even angels and demons- and still have it be science. Observation is the key to the scientific method, rejection of observation, any observation, is invalid.
