Theoretical Christianity: people at the moment are much exercised by “critical theory”—yet there was a viewpoint long before that was also theoretical, Christianity. You can tell Christianity was theoretical because St. Augustine had to patch its theoretical basis when reality overtook it. The Christians thought Christ would come back within the generation that lived with Jesus—they would see the Second Coming in their time. When this failed to materialise, people made excuses for it, and there were sporadic panics when people thought “the Second Coming is at hand”.
These eventually became disruptive, because an invading army would appear so people would throw down their weapons and give up—since it was a sign “the end was nigh”. St. Augustine patched this problem with the clever notion “the Second Coming is here, it just isn’t evenly distributed yet”. The idea is that Jesus has returned, but it will take a really long time for his return to unfold—so, in the meantime, there’s no need to do anything rash like abandon a city because there are fierce enemies about and “the end is nigh”.
It’s an ingenious patch and it worked until Catholic authority fell apart—which is why, since then, you have many amateurs who predict “the end is at hand” (with the proverbial sandwich boards). However, what this demonstrates is that Christianity is a clever theory not based on tangible reality—the theory, as with Communism, actually failed centuries ago (when Jesus didn’t come back as expected); and, since then, it has been patched—just like people are still patching Marxism and Freudianism today.
What’s the first thing anyone says if you mention Marxism, “It’s a great idea in theory, but does it work in practice?”. Marxism, Freudianism, and Christianity—along with multiculturalism, a split off from Marxism—all amount to the same idea in functional terms, they were all invented by the Jews. They are all clever theories that promise universal salvation and brotherhood but never work in practice—and, instead, have to be patched by men like St. Augustine to make them practical at all.
“A theory” derives etymologically from “picture”—it’s an idea about “how the world should be”, a pleasant picture of what it should be. It’s counterposed to actuality—to the real. Why do the Jews come up with these clever theories all the time? Because they are the people of book-learning, they are the people of theoretical knowledge—they are not the people of practical knowledge, of wisdom, or of warfare.
So they tend to develop these elaborate ideas where everyone will live in a huge global tribe, like the Jewish tribe, and will all be warm and cosy together—like a great tangle of mice in their nest, so warm and fraternal (as they pee all over each other, tails entangled).
That’s the theory—anyway. The reality is more like massacre and lies—per the Christian inquisitions, destruction of statues and books, or per Soviet Communism. This theoretical take on religion suppresses practical religious knowledge. So, for example, Anglo-Saxons used to go out dressed in deer horns to summon supernatural entities—I’ve done so myself, with the result that glowing entities manifested in hedgerows in the distance.
Why was it banned as “Satanic” by the bishops? For the same reason Soviet commissars banned you from having certain books or a certain amount of money—it interferes with “the good moral theory”. Bishops and commissars amount to the same thing—they’re the security police to make sure nobody does anything original, individual, or beautiful so the ugly equality cult can stay in power.
Independent activity is retailed as “evil” to the credulous masses—because for anyone to have direct knowledge of something, whether science or spirituality, implies inequality. And that must be from “the debil”. The huge theory, based mostly on lies to improve the situation of the Jews, must be defended at all costs—even when it falls apart and its adherents are subject to cognitive dissonance.
Elements are true, of course, because clever people trade in half-truths, not lies—so, for example, Jesus is said to return on a pale horse at judgement day; and that is just stolen from the older Hindu mythology, from Indo-Aryan mythology, because Kalki, the god, comes on a white stallion at judgement day.
Of course, if people have direct knowledge of spiritual matters—just as if they manage their own property or their own psyche—they don’t need “the thought police” to sell them “the salvation vision”. They don’t need the priest, the commissar, or the psychoanalyst—which amount to the same thing.
They don’t need an elaborate salvation story, because they know about the real spiritual world all around them—but, no, instead they have to have priests who don’t even know if it’s real, are often total cynics like the Irishmen who do it to please their mothers, and basically just trust some book a Jew gave them a while ago (of which there are many many other versions that have been suppressed over time for “reasons”).
Europeans made progress in science because we’re not a theoretical people—we’re a wise people, a war-like people, who like to see things demonstrated first hand; it’s to be Aryan—truthful, noble. The Jews, by contrast, like to follow elaborate rulebooks, even if these contradict reality—Jesus did attempt to warn them about that (spirit > law).
What many Europeans don’t realise, because the Church suppressed it, is that there’s a way to know the spiritual world is real just as there is a way to know the natural world is real—but all European practical energy has been decanted into natural science; and that, in turn, created scepticism about the spirit.
Indeed, Christianity deepened our fall into matter, because it creates this rigid subject-object divide (God up there, the Oriental despot—we his slaves), so it made mechanical thought possible; but, really, the energy flows through us—it’s a liquid system. *
