Ra worshippers weren't monotheistic.  Someone is confusing "Ra" and "Aten".


After years of agony provoked by the complete FAIL of this thread, i can finally rest in peace knowing that i managed to last enough to actually learn something.

Aneristic Illusions / Re: Mexico: FAIL thread

$2,000 million have been assigned to build a touristic trolley in the Zócalo zone in Distrito Federal.

Nevermind the Metro of course!

The project was sketched during these vacations time, in deep obscurity; the "free" (data)Base of Licitations only gave up the information after payment of $730 (which for the average person is about 2 months salary worth).

Nevermind anyone, except my contractor friends!

Lucky me, my periphereal vision and reflexes managed to close my eyelid on time.

taht's from the illuminatus trilogy, right?

never noticed it was a cheerleader chant before :D :D wonder if they did it like that in the audio book version? [or maybe I didnt get to that part, I didnt entirely finish the audio book].

so um this might be a dumb question, but if there is only one god, and he is the sun god, why does the chant include Isis?

The cult of Ra (the Sun God) during the New Kingdom, esp under the rule of Akhenaten was a monotheistic one. The Sun God was worshiped over all other Gods by that cult (the other gods existed, but were weenies). Oddly, worshiping the Sun God (the Father) ended up behaving much like fundamental Christianity in Egypt. Some say its a factor in monotheism, if you KNOW Ra is the ONLY GOD, then you get pissed at everyone else (ala 2nd circuit)... Others that play with 'archetypes' find strong correlations between Ra as worshiped by Akhenaten and some aspects of the 'Father' in Christianity (and the Son in Osiris).

However, the really, real best bit... is that its a slam at Catholics.

Isis was the 'Mother Goddess', so the monotheistic Ra worshipers were also (in his chant) worshiping Isis... just as the 'monotheistic' Catholics pray to Mary:


Quote from: Wiktionary
monotheistic (not comparable)

   1. (religion) Believing in a single god, deity, spirit, etc., especially for an organized religion, faith, or creed.

Quote from: Wiktionary
polytheism (plural polytheisms)

   1. The belief of the existence of many gods.

Mary might be ascended, but shes not a goddess.

The only thing you could try to slide is that the "holy trinity" is a sign of polytheism in an apparent monotheism, but thats just spinning yarns.

Catholics tend to mix up their gods and their graven idols quite a bit. Virgin Mary is venerated, often to the point where the god(s) are ignored. Catholicism is thinly veiled polytheism, masquerading as monotheism. Considering its roots how could it be anything else?

So are you saying that all religions are polytheistic?

Are angels minor gods?


You know what, nevermind, i dont want to argue about definitions of stuff that is jibberish anyways.

Im gonna put on my magical hawaiian shirt and shorts, so that this fucking 0ºC cold stops bothering me; also, im gonna stuff coal up my rectum, while i chant "I wanna go to africa" as a ritual hymn to Rah.

There's Only One God
He Is The Sun God
Isis Isis
Ra Ra RA

(but only if you do it in ancient 'cheerleader chant')

Are you mocking my magical ritual? What if its the only way i have to keep warm? You prick.

But that ritual will make you laugh if you do it right... and that will warm you.

The grace of Rah, will make me laugh in joy, because his spirit rays shall be warming me.

Start living like Neytiri: in touch with nature, the environment, and not being greedy and wasteful. Pass on the burger, for something more healthy for you and less cruel to animals. Spend your time on this forum, or volunteering in your free time, instead of getting high or drinking, twiddling your thumbs, being apathetic and complaining about how bad the world is. Don't get swept away by the wave of negativity, live your dream. Your life has only two switches, to shine or not to shine. There is no "apathy" setting. If you're on apathy setting you might as well sign your world away to destruction. When you get discouraged by everyone around you, be courageous like Jake, and jump on the leonopteryx. Be the change you want to see in your world. There are only so many people on this earth, the more of them that are doing positive things, the less of them that are out there doing negative things. It's unfortunate that we live in a world where, just by pulling a trigger or making a corporate decision, one single greedy human being can wipe out the hard works of love of many people. But this is why we need to stop focusing on money and start focusing on our environment. Because we have the intelligence to kill ourselves, but not the wisdom to stop it. What will our money buy, when everything that is worth having is destroyed? The only way you can fill the emptiness you feel after this movie, is to jump on the leonopteryx.

I wish i could flip the "shine" switch.

I wish i could jump on a fucking leonopteryx.

And oh, i wish that just by spending time on the Avatar forum, and, by "focusing on the environment instead of on money" (i.e. recycling while ignoring the pillaging) it would make all the giant blood-sucking insects go away.

Seems half of it is will, but, WHERE DO I FIND ONE OF THESE BECAUSE I APPARENTLY NEED IT????

Or Kill Me / Re: Dysgenics: Our Future.
« on: January 11, 2010, 03:10:18 pm »

Interesting read, JohNyx. I'm wondering how you got from "The government propagandizes about abstinence" and "The abstinence propaganda doesn't work" to "The government doesn't want actually abstinence happening"? It doesn't seem to logically follow...
(those aren't quotes from your writing but i was paraphrasing)

Government knows abstinence as a contraceptive method does not work, because it has statistical knkowledge of its population's tendencies. First sexual relation age is lowering each year. The government knows teenagers are not gonna stop from having sex.

Government promotes abstinence as a contraceptive method just to be in good terms with the powerful far right.

The far rights agenda is ideological, while the governments agenda is profit.

More people = more work force + more difficulty to make organized resistance = more profit.


Causing guilt and conflicting messages also confuse people and keep them off balance in their personal life.  If you cant get your personal shit together, how on earth do you hope to manage a revolution?

Institutionalised sexual repression is the key to the question of how authoritarian society has reproduced itself from generation to generation, over thousands of years, even while the economic conditions and technologies underlying those societies have completely transformed.

The post-Freudian psychologist Wilhelm Reich claimed that sexual repression and the “authoritarian family” style of child-rearing are responsible for the perpetuation of what he called “patriarchal society.” Reich traced sexually-repressive child-rearing back to the beginning of hierarchical ruler-and-slave society. For example, it was not in the interests of the ruling families – the chiefs, royals, lords, barons etc – to have their children “promiscuously” reproducing with persons of lower social status. Tight control of child/adolescent sexuality was in the economic and power interests of the rulers (eg via fixed marriages and dowries). And, as usual, the priests served their masters – the church instituted various strict morals and taboos, putting a “divine” slant on all this control and repression of sex.

Reich’s psychological theory is fairly complex, but in a nutshell it claims that the strict authoritarian repression of natural childhood desires leads to an inhibited character structure which is obedient, docile and fearful of authority. To quote Reich:

“[this] has a crippling effect on man’s rebellious forces because every vital life-impulse is now burdened with severe fear... in short, morality’s aim is to produce acquiescent subjects who, despite distress and humiliation, are adjusted to the authoritarian order. Thus, the family is the authoritarian state in miniature.”

So it seems that in the change from egalitarian to authoritarian society, sex transformed from an “innocent”, “natural” behaviour to something controlled and suppressed – a “commodity in the service of economic subjugation” as Reich puts it. The Christian church went even further and redefined natural sensual pleasures – symbolised by Eve in the Garden of Eden – as a central part of “Original Sin”. In particular, female sexuality, pleasure and eroticism were demonised by the clergy.

The concept of Original Sin has performed an important function in authoritarian societies. The Protestant Work Ethic, for example, was built around it. If pleasure for pleasure’s sake was seen as something sinful, then the opposite: endless hard work, with little or no relief, was (and still is) seen as a moral obligation. Original Sin was yet another stick to beat slaves with – to keep them working and stop them complaining.

Also this http://www.anxietyculture.com/guilt.htm  In fact, hell, the whole site

Some people discredit Reich's work completely, for the fact that at the end of his life, he went off the deep end with his ideas about Orgone; but he did have some good ideas before that.

Ill check out the site, thanks.
