My appeal against my Twitter suspension

This tweet is timed as 1033 PM and dated 19 September 2017.


@Dora_Chance @CrispySea Humanist - sex offenders who think it is their right to commit sexual offences

I have not deleted it as I was invited to by Twitter but cannot in any case see it, can you?


THE BASIS OF MY APPEAL

Humanists invariably believe in their right to indulge in extramarital sex which the religious regard as sexual offences. For example, the Koran says fornication and adultery is a sexual offence that deserves corporal punishment in 24:2, which is a valid opinion based on undisputed fact. I believe I have the right to express  a valid opinion ie an opinion which is reasonable to hold based on undisputed fact without having my account suspended simply because humanists - who are the overwhelming majority of tweeters - disagree with me. I also believe that it is right that Twitter  support this right in order to facilitate the free exchange of ideas.

Would you like me on Davis Aurini again? He said a I sounded like a boring, incoherent homeless person

Davis Aurini prevents a pagan from questioning the efficacy of the Catholic Church



1:13

Steele:

When you say there's problems in the church and those problems are problems of man and not problems of God - is that a fair synopsis of what you said?

Aurini:

I would say it is not a problem of the teachings of the Church, which have remained consistent.

Steele:

One of the core teachings of the Church is Papal Infallibility.

Aurini:

And when was the last time that was invoked?

Steele:

You tell me, you're the Catholic scholar.

Aurini:

16th century or thereabouts.

Steele:

I know it was invoked in Vatican II.

Aurini:

Vatican II was a very weird document.

Steele:

Whatever, but Papal Infallibility was invoked then.

Aurini:

No, it wasn't because Vatican II didn't even really say anything. It's a very weird document ... 

Steele:

Google check, you can Google Vatican II and read up on this and tell me if it doesn't say anything. 

Aurini continues to babble incoherently and then cuts him off.

The creation of God

The book of Genesis opens with God making humans “in his image and likeness.”

The truth is more probably that Man in creating God thought of the most powerful attribute to give to Him and arrived at that of omnipotence.

He imagined an omnipotent deity to be unique because an omnipotent being would not tolerate other omnipotent beings and therefore this deity would also be supreme.

The next step up would be omniscience, for an omnipotent deity would naturally know everything and a being that knows everything with the capacity to do anything would surely desire to be morally perfect.

Being omnipotent, a rational God would also make Himself morally perfect, and of course an omnipotent God would be rational.

And so the Abrahamic God was created.

Should we choose the Apollonian over the Dionysian if we wish to preserve our civilisation?

Jews are blamed for everything, including the failure of Christianity



E Michael Jones:

The term Jew is a theological construct. It means 'rejector of Christ'. In rejecting Christ, Jews rejected logos. In rejecting logos, they rejected the order of the universe, including the social and moral order, and in doing that, they became revolutionaries.


A pagan Odinist questions the effectiveness of the Catholic Church, Davis Aurini dismisses him without addressing his arguments



My disappointing evening with Davis Aurini who has now blocked me on Skype

38th minute

After having the similarities of Judaism and Islam pointed out to him, Aurini rants:

Islam is an obvious Satanic twisting of Christ's word. It is an obvious Christian heresy. [Well, obviously, since if you were Christian, you wouldn't be a Muslim, and if you were Muslim, you wouldn't be Christian and having your religion called heretical by Christians is not going to make you stop believing in Islam, if you had already considered Christianity and rejected it.] Islam outright contradicts itself in many many places. Talmudic Judaism is also a Christian heresy. There are some sincere Jews that are unfortunately on the Talmudic path and that is holding the Jews together. Meanwhile 90% of them are just as degenerate as Christians. There are a few Muslims out there that genuinely worship and honour God even if they follow the words of a demon-possessed psychopath.

John Steele:

Then according to your argument, what difference does it make? If that's really true, then it doesn't matter whether you're a Christian, a Jew or an Islamist as long as you are sincere and your heart is good, then none of this shit really matters.
Aurini:
No, Steele, I'm not going to get into this theological conversation. The answer to that is blindingly obvious and we're trying to have a live stream here, not a debate on whether 2 +2 = 4.
Steele at 1:08:

I look at Christianity as one of the biggest proponents of the disease of modernity. These Christians are all about accepting everything. The Baptists are accepting homosexuals. Are you saying this is OK?
Aurini:
It's not the church promoting this, it's weak men going along with it.
Steele:

What good is the church if it is led astray? What good is it then? It's not a force standing up against it.
Aurini:

Does politics lead culture, or culture lead politics? Is the church promoting modernity or is the church succumbing to modernity?
Steele:
I think it is a feedback loop.I don't think it is as simple as one leads the other, I think it is an interconnected thing.
The debate then becomes incoherent and Aurini dismisses Steele who asked a number of good questions that Aurini was clearly incapable of answering because he cannot defend the Catholic Church he keeps telling people to go to.

To change the culture, you change the law.

Andrew Breitbart: "Politics is downstream from culture."

Me:
Culture is downstream from law.
Law should be downstream from morality.
Morality should be downstream from religion.
Our religion should be chosen wisely and with care, for the advancement of our civilisation.
When the old religion breaks down irreparably, do not be too proud to replace it with something better that is the latest model which comes with an instructional manual and a guarantee.
If Monotheism were a car, Islam would be Monotheism Mark III.

Signs of the times


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_eschatology#Signs_of_the_End_time

Signs of the End time

In Islam, a number of major and minor signs foretell the end of days. There is debate over whether they could occur concurrently or must be at different points in time, although Islamic scholars typically divide them into three major periods.

Last of the minor signs, and which will signal the coming of the 10 Major signs

    The Appearance of the Mahdi.

Major signs

Following the second period, the third will be marked by the ten major signs known as alamatu's-sa'ah al-kubra (the major signs of the end). They are as follows:

  1.     The false messiah—anti-Christ, Masih ad-Dajjal—shall appear with great powers as a one-eyed man with his right eye blind and deformed like a grape. Although believers will not be deceived, he will claim to be God, to hold the keys to heaven and hell, and will lead many astray. In reality, his heaven is hell, and his hell is heaven. The Dajjal will be followed by seventy thousand Jews of Isfahan wearing Persian shawls.
  2.     The return of Isa (Jesus), from the fourth sky, to kill Dajjal.
  3.     Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj (Gog and Magog), a Japhetic tribe of vicious beings who had been imprisoned by Dhul-Qarnayn, will break out. They will ravage the earth, drink all the water of Lake Tiberias, and kill all believers in their way. Isa, Imam Al-Mahdi, and the believers with them will go to the top of a mountain and pray for the destruction of Gog and Magog. God eventually will send disease and worms to wipe them out.
  4.     A huge black cloud of smoke will cover the earth.
  5.     Dabbat al-ard, or the beast that will come out of the ground to talk to people.
  6.     The sun will rise from the west.
  7.     Three sinkings of the earth, one in the east,
  8.     One in the west,
  9.     And one in Arabia.
  10.     The second blow of the trumpet will be sounded, the dead will return to life, and, out of Yemen, will come a fire that shall gather all to Mahshar Al Qiy'amah (The Gathering for Judgment).

Other signs

  1.     Mecca will be attacked and the Kaaba will be destroyed.
  2.     A pleasant breeze will blow from the south that shall cause all believers to die peacefully.
