The case for a theocracy

The concept of God exists.  What are the next questions that ought to occur to you?

  1. Is believing in God useful to Man?
  2. Does a general belief in God assist in the task of creating social cohesion?
  3. Does a general belief in God assist Man in his politics, morality and spirituality?
  4. If there is a general belief in God through whom morality is generally instilled into the populace, is this not useful and good even to the atheist?
  5. Do societies that believe in God do better and last longer than societies that do not believe in God?
  6. Does a general belief in God protect a society from the depredations of feminism, free love and widespread illegitimacy leading to racial and national degeneracy?
  7. Is a general belief in God the only way of protecting a society from the depredations of feminism, free love and widespread illegitimacy leading to racial and national degeneracy?
  8. "We must with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion."  Was George Washington right in saying this?
  9. If God is necessary to Man, then it must be necessary for Man to believe in God, or at any rate  behave as if He exists by obeying His commandments  Do you agree?

It is quite clear that Western philosophers have been asking themselves the wrong question for centuries, the fools.   

Is Western philosophy fit for purpose?

Do Western philosophers even know what purpose they are supposed to serve, or are they too up their own arses talking their own language in their ivory towers to give a shit what the rest of us think?

Would you give a job to someone whom you suspect of being a philosophy graduate or would you shoot him on sight no questions asked?

Is an academic philosopher a waste of skin and space?

Is this question capable of being asked by Western philosophers, much less answered honestly and honourably?



''God is the only Being who does not have to exist to rule'' 
Charles Baudeliare




God is the most powerful idea known to man and it is for this reason that it would be a terrible waste not to use such an idea to make life better for all of us.

The delicious paradox of this statement is that it frankly acknowledges that it was Man who created God. Therefore ideas can become more powerful than the conceiver of it, and take on an independent life of their own.

"Allahu Akbar" literally translates as "God is greater."

I wondered to myself why they do not say "God is great" in Arabic, or "God is the greatest."

But fill in the blanks and you will see the hidden meaning:

"God is greater than His Creation [ie Man, who created Him]."
