"I sat in the dark and thought: There's no big apocalypse.
Just an endless procession of little ones." - Neil Gaiman

Don't Dream It's Over



"The truly apocalyptic view of the world is that things do not repeat themselves.

It isn't absurd to believe that the age of science and technology is the beginning of the end for humanity.

It isn't absurd to believe that the idea of great progress is delusion, along with the idea that the truth will ultimately be known

It isn't absurd to believe that there is nothing good or desirable about scientific knowledge and that mankind, in seeking it, is falling into a trap.

Is it not obvious that this is how things are?" - Ludwig Wittgenstein

Apocalypse literally means the lifting of the veil.

Apocalypse is a term applied to the disclosure to certain privileged persons of something hidden from the majority of humankind.

Today the term is often used to mean "end of the world", which may be a shortening of the phrase apokalupsis eschaton which literally means "revelation at the end of the age".

Apocalyptic beliefs predate Christianity, appear in other religions, and have merged into contemporary secular society through popular culture.

Apocalyptic beliefs that occur in other religious systems:

Hindu Pralay;

Norse Ragnarök;

Persia Frashokereti.

Archetype of the Apocalypse

House of the Rising Sun


Ragnarök, the "fate of the gods", is the battle at the end of the world.

Ragnarök will be waged between the Æsir, led by Odin, and the various forces of the Jötnar, including Loki.

The earth will shudder so violently that trees will be uprooted, every bond and fetter will snap and be severed, freeing Loki, the God of Mischief.

Not only will most of the gods, giants and creatures involved perish in this apocalyptic conflagration, but everything will be torn asunder.

Ragnarök will be preceded by the Fimbulwinter, the winter of winters.

Three successive winters will follow each other with no summer in between.

The stars will vanish from the sky, plunging the earth into darkness.




Rapture

The Rapture and the Real World



"The end-of-the-world prophecies popular with television neoevangelists tap into an authentic realization, but assume salvation will come from without.

They imagine Christ coming down from the sky to take away the True Believers in a rapturous escape from a world we have ruined.

It is a thought form exactly parallel to that of the techno-utopians.

Only the identity of their god is different." - Charles Eisenstein

The Rapture is the name given to an event by television neoevangelists that practice dispensational premillennialism in which Christ returns to Earth, accompanied by the spirits of the saints, both from the pre-incarnation period and after, who have passed on prior to this Final Judgement event.

The reincarnated bodily remains of these saints are transported from the Earth to meet the Lord and be rejoined with their corresponding Eternal Soul in heaven.

Immediately after this, all Christians that practice dispensational premillennialism will be simultaneously transported to meet the Lord and those who have preceded them to heaven, in particularly John Calvin.

Those who have been properly buried, graves consecrated and undisturbed, are transformed into immortal bodies like Jesus' body, often referred to as the "resurrection body" - experiencing a literal rebirth.

1830s John Nelson Darby and the Plymouth Brethren popularize pre-tribulation rapture theology - premillennial dispensationalism .

1908 Doctrine of the rapture is further popularized by a neoevangelist named William Eugene Blackstone, whose book, Jesus Is Coming, sells more than one million copies.

"Thirty-nine years ago I was providentially led to issue the first edition of "Jesus Is Coming," which has been followed by numerous editions totaling over three hundred and fifty thousand copies with translations into twenty-five different languages encircling the world." - William Eugene Blackstone

1909 Scofield Reference Bible is printed by Oxford University Press.

The first known appearance of the theological use of the word "rapture" in print occurs with the Scofield Reference Bible.

Armageddon

"For thousands of years now people have been predicting the end of the world - and soon!

Though their frequent postponement of the date of Armageddon detracts from their credibility, the basic psychic energy behind the loonies holding up placards on Times Square comes from a real source.

They are tapping into a true insight: the edifice of civilization has an irremediable structural flaw that dictates its eventual collapse.

We are on a collision course with nature and with human nature." - Charles Eisenstein

Armageddon is the final climactic battle between Elohim and Satan, written in the Book of Revelation in the Christian New Testament, or more generally, an apocalyptic catastrophe.

The word Armageddon in Scripture is known only from a single verse in the Greek New Testament, where it is said to be Hebrew, but it is thought to represent the Hebrew words Har Megido, meaning "Hill of Megiddo".

Megiddo was the location of many decisive battles in ancient times.

Jehovah's Witness' believe that Armageddon is the battle when Satan unites the kings of the Earth against God's appointed King, Christ.

Rastafari believe it is Haile Selassie who appears in the Book of Revelation.

Seventh-day Adventists believe the final battle of Armageddon will take place after the thousand-year period mentioned in the Book of Revelation, where the righteous dwell with God in heaven and the wicked are judged.





According to this account, Christ and his saints will leave the Heavenly kingdom they now reside in and come down to Earth to save the righteous.

Christ will raise the wicked dead, and Satan will prepare them to engage in one final battle between good and evil.

Satan and his evil followers will attempt to overthrow the righteous followers of Christ, but will be overcome by the power of Christ.

God destroys Satan and his evil followers with an overwhelming fire.

The Earth will be cleansed by fire, purged of all evil, then, according to the final two chapters of Revelation, will be made new and restored to its original state before Sin entered into the World.

Then Christ and His redeemed saints will be declared victorious.

"Amagideon" is a slightly different theological concept, meaning not so much a specific battle, but rather the general state the entire world is in now.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
