All religions promise a reward ... for excellences of the will or heart, but none for excellences of the head or understanding. - Arthur Schopenhauer

What is equally as certain is that religions punish those that challenge their sacred cows and shibboleths. - Site author Michael Armstrong

Enshrined Ignorance
Updated: 02/04/2020

The following is just a small sample of significant questions leading to information that our religious and cultural educational agencies fail to enlighten us with. Get the picture?

"Be not unaware," Virgil writes, "that the Latins are Saturn's race, righteous not by bond or laws, but self-controlled of their own free will and by the custom of their ancient god."
  20. Do you know that the first Christian martyr was killed by his contemporaries because he denounced the prevailing religion as being just Saturn worship? See: Sanctuary was Moloch's Tent

  27. Do you know what is the most powerful religion in the world? See: Scientism Religion and The Modern Mythology

A little learning is a dangerous thing;

See: Luke 18:8 "However, with the Son of man passing, will he really find faith [πίστιν] on the earth? Evidently not!" (Commentary - The phrase in question is asked in a Greek rhetorical mode where the answer is always negative, hence "obviously not" is built in and the " Evidently not!" has been added to give the true meaning of the text in English.)
  7. Do you know the essential difference between Protestantism and Catholicism? For Protestants, the Bible is the "Word of God" and the J-person has put his stamp of approval on this idea. For Catholics, the J-person has put his stamp of approval upon the understandings and dogmas promulgated by the disciples headed by Peter, and the Pope is the latest in a long line of God-appointed authorities, infallible when he is speaking ex cathedra. See:  Reformation
  8. Do you have aby idea of why firstborns are twice as likely to be virgins at 21 than later-born children?

  26. Are you aware that the eyewitness Gospel writer John says 4 times in the first 3 chapters that Jesus' ministry on earth was a failure at that time? See: 4 Laments on the Failure
  27. Do you know that radiometric dating (carbon 14, potassium-argon, etc.) is generally and usually invalid? In 1986, lava came out of Mt. St. Helens volcano.  In 1997, five samples of the lava flow were analyzed and dated by the method of radioisotope (potassium - argon method to be exact) : the result was not only that contemporary events were dated differently, but that the actual date (just 11 years later) yielded dates ranging from less than half a million years to almost 3 million years. The maximum percentage error committed in this "measurement" is about 2,000,000,000% , two billion percent! Try not laughing at the thought that ancient fossils are dated using this "advanced scientific technique."

See: Origin of Grand Canyon and Origin of Grand Canyon II
  31. Do you know that there is another canyon a few hundred miles away in NW Mexico, machined out by the same type electric discharge machining (EDM) process, that is about 4 times as big as the Grand Canyon? See: https://infogalactic.com/info/Copper_Canyon
  32. Do you know that "ring nebulae" visible in space are not really rings but only look like rings when we are staring down the barrel of hourglass-shaped Birkeland currents feeding the electric stars? See: Nature of Ring Nebula
  33. Are you aware that the ancient empire of Rome existed right alongside a sometimes more powerful empire, the empire of Parthia, to which they generally lost the wars and battles? See: https://infogalactic.com/info/Parthia
  34. Do you know that Thomas Edison spent his late years in courtrooms involved in legal suits instead of being in his laboratory? It wasn’t pretty –he fought against AC power with deception because his was DC.
  35. Are you aware that not only is Christendom divided into Catholicism and Protestantism but increasingly and more importantly is divided into quite disparate "Northern" and "Southern" versions? See: Religious Diversity

  43. Do you know how dolphins and porpoises–mammals that live in the water yet need to breathe air–manage to sleep, and the implications of this?
  44. How many people know that the word "ark" derives from a root that, in more than one language, translates into an ancient name for Saturn?
  45. Do you know WHY the Hebrew word for "face" comes from the verb "to turn, spin or rotate"?
  46. Do you realize that our human eyes–because of limited retinal and foveal area, a blind spot, blinking and darting–capture minimal actual data, and the brain does a massive amount of interpolation, projection and integration, and that most of what we "see" happens in the brain?
  47. Do you know that there are 887 large stone Moai statues on Easter or Rapa Nui Island in the Pacific ocean, and these don't represent ancestors but rather the ancient humanoid form seen in the ancient Saturnian sky?
  48. Are you aware that the 150 most popular and photographed Moai show just the upright head with a red hat representing Mars, where the rest of the body is buried in several meters of stratified ground on the slope of one of the three volcanoes on the island?

See: Memories of Squatter Man, Chinese Longevity Symbol, Astral Origin of Symbols
  51. Do you understand why it is unreasonable to date the many pyramids around the world as being widely apart in age?

"But actually, any mention of the humourous sides of all this (the dating quagmire) is also semi-spurious. If the available information is as bad as I suggest..., the situation is more or less, culturally tragic. It remains odd that pro-Velikovskians seem not to perceive the ironies of this. The evolutionists burst ecclesiastical immutability in geology, the catastrophists attempt to burst assumptions of geological gradualism. Cosmology becomes highly mathematical, mankind sets foot on the moon and sends probes to Mars and beyond... but Prehistory remains enigmatic; ignorance seems to win." - Dan Bymes, The Velikovsky Debate: Finding a Date for Exodus, 1997
