Greetings

Post by therazorsedge on Thu Jun 14, 2012 11:55 pm

A buddy of mine started a new wave of thought aimed at intellectuals, it's intended to encourage common-sense and spiritualism.

Somewhat like Laveyan Satanism, still in the works. Check it out.

It's called Ba'alism.

As for me.

I'm just some guy.

Just out of curiosity, why would anyone be inclined to "check it out"?

Most of us here don't treat our spirituality like deciding what to have for lunch, or what shirt to wear.

I'm just thinking, one doesn't just "check out" a spiritual or religious path. It's a bit of a more serious topic than that.

Yes I agree.

Oh, I am really, really not trying to be cranky, and I genuinely do welcome our new member, but I have been the recipient of several pm's of late where people want me to promote their religious website, or their religious movie or whatnot. I am just tired of the proselytizers and people who want stuff from me without bothering to get to know me or the people here. We are a community, and I welcome everyone who wants to join and take part. But people who are here to promote money making ventures, or to get marks for their gods in a possible hereafter might as well move on. I encourage shameless promotion only from folks who have made an effort to participate in our family.


I think I needed to get that out.

I don't have to try to be cranky.....Wink

That's part of my issue too. First post, check out x.
Say hi, put in a couple dozen posts, then tell us about something cool and we should check out.
Otherwise it's just like being a salesman.

I have become cranky I am afraid, I will recover, but I ask everyone to bear with me and accept my apologies for the apparent snippiness.

We all know where it came from. I need to rein it in and disperse it safely, so no one gets hurt by flying cranks. Embarassed

You're nice for thinking so.

Truth is, I'm cranky and I'm mean. I have a low level of tolerance for ineptitude, and a huge problem with people claiming to be in positions of authority and an even bigger problem with people trying to abuse that authority.

And if I even think someone is trying to sell me something that I am not looking for, I will leave them in little chunks on the floor.....

Jeepers. I am glad we are friends. Very Happy

I do understand. I am losing my tolerance fast.
I haven't liked authority figures since I was six years old. Never threaten a smart child, they will find a way around the threat, if there is one.

Terrible to think I stopped believing people, and believing "in" people that far back.

I love discussion, and I enjoy others opinions, as long as I'm not being insulted, or berated or conned.
But I no longer accept the idea of authority. I'll respect those who show they deserve respect, but authority, no.

In spiritual matters absolutely not.

To be honest, once I trust someone, I find it pretty impossible to be afraid of them. Sorry to tell you, but I trust you. I know we have not even physically met.
I may be a fool or incredibly astute.

But there it goes, Can't help it Smile

Uh, there are Caananite polytheists, have been for quite a while. Ba'al is a terrible deity to compare to the jewish Ha-Satan, let alone to develop a similair quasi-religion like Laveyan Satanism around. They have nothing in common, except for both later being conflated with the Christian devil.

I actually read a blog of a CP on a regular basis, for anyone who is interested in what an actual Ba'al worshipper does...

I get the impression they are appropriating the name Ba'al without any research into who he actually is.
