Atheists In Kenya (AIK)

Bringing together non-believers …

Engineered obedience


slavery-bibleReligions are authoritarian hierarchies designed to dominate your free will. They’re power structures that aim to convince you to give away your power for the benefit of those who enjoy dominating people. When you subscribe to a religion, you enroll in a mindless minion training program. Religions don’t market themselves as such, but this is essentially how they operate.

Religions are very effective at turning human beings into sheep. They’re among the most powerful instruments of social conditioning. They operate by eroding your trust in your own intellect, gradually convincing you to put your trust into some external entity, such as a deity, prominent figure, or great book. Of course these instruments are usually controlled by those who administrate the minion training program, but they don’t have to be. Simply by convincing you to give your power away to something outside yourself, religion will condition you to be weaker, more docile, and easier to control. Religions actively promote this weakening process as if it were beneficial, commonly branding it with the word faith. What they’re actually promoting is submission.

Religions strive to fill your head with so much nonsense that your only recourse is to bow your head in submission, often quite literally. Get used to spending a lot of time on your knees because acts of submission such as bowing and kneeling are frequently incorporated into religious practice. Canine obedience training uses similar tactics. Now say, “Yes, Master.”

Have you ever wondered why religious teachings are invariably mysterious, confusing, and internally incongruent? This is no accident by the way — it’s quite intentional.

By putting forth confusing and internally conflicting information, your logical mind (i.e. your neocortex) is overwhelmed. You try in vain to integrate such contradictory beliefs, but it can’t be done. The net effect is that your logical mind disengages because it can’t find a pattern of core truth beneath all the nonsense, so without the help of your neocortex, you devolve to a more primitive (i.e. limbic) mode of thinking. You’re taught that this faith-based approach is a more spiritual and conscious way to live, but in reality it’s precisely the opposite. Getting you to distrust your own cerebral cortex actually makes you dumber and easier to manipulate and control. Karl Marx was right when he said, “Religion is the opiate of the people.”

For example, the Old Testament and the New Testament in the Bible frequently contradict each other with various rules of conduct, yet both are quoted during mass. Church leaders also behave in direct violation of the Church’s teachings, such as by covering up criminal and immoral activities by their own priests. Those who try to mentally process such glaring contradictions as coherent truth invariably suffer for it. A highly conscious person would reject membership in such an organization as patently ridiculous. So-called divine mysteries are engineered to be incomprehensible. You aren’t meant to ever make sense of them since that would defeat the whole purpose. When you finally wake up and realize it’s all B.S., you’ve taken the first step towards freedom from this oppressive system.

The truth is that so-called religious authorities don’t know any more about spirituality than you do. However, they know how to manipulate your fear and uncertainty for their own benefit. How nice of you to let them.

    Hallo Harry – I send many greetings from Germany – I´m so happy to contact you – because i like Africa and all Africans – all Arfican Atheists. Now i will continue in German – so I can better express,what i want to say. You can translate with google.
    Ich bin Fördermitglied der Giordano-Bruno-Stiftung, die sehr aktiv gegen den
    Wahnsinn der Religionen hier in Deutschland kämpft. Info über deinen Verein habe ich durch sie bekommen. Ich war erstaunt und zugleich sehr sehr froh, dass auch in Kenia Menschen leben, die genauso denken und fühlen wie ich. Deine Newsletter lese ich immer wieder sehr gerne. Ich versuche diese selbst zu übersetzen mit meinem Wörterbuch, ohne google – das klappt ganz gut. Ich würde gerne “Atheists in Kenia” finanziell unterstützen (mit kleinen Beträgen, ab und zu – ich habe nur eine kleine Rente). Sage mir, wie ich das machen muß.
    Hattest du schon irgendwie Kontakt mit “www.giordano-bruno-stiftung.de”? Herr Steffen und Dr.Schmidt-Salomon sind die Vorsitzenden – sehr kluge, nette und weltoffene Menschen – contact !!
    It was a big fun to write this words to you. Have a good time -.
    Greetings from Ingeborg / Germany !!
