The Cult of Death

By Numke ~

I discovered a cult today. It worships a zombie, and likes to emphasise how this zombie died, they even give all the bloody details to children. They also believe that during their rituals they must metaphorically (I believe some cultists even think it's literal!) eat the flesh and drink the blood of their zombie master. They also believe that their zombie (who is also a ghost as well as a god) killed everyone in the world except for a single family, and that he destroyed two cities entirely for being homosexual, and turned a woman into salt simply for seeing him do it. Apparently he also cursed a random man who had been living exactly as this zombie-god wanted, killing his family, giving him diseases and making him lose everything (apparently, the cultists say, it's alright, because the guy got a new family afterwards, and the zombie-god got rid of the disease and gave him his money back. He did not, though, apologize and apparently even got angry when asked why he was torturing a perfectly innocent worshipper).

This cult I found seems obsessed on two things; death and sex. They are obsessed with those things. They want to make sure everyone has sex the 'correct way'. The correct way - I'm informed - is between a man and a woman, (same-sex relations are unnatural and should be put to death, so that's bad news for many animal species) and - though the cult seems divided about this - only for procreation. Which brings me - in a roundabout sort of way - to the other thing they seem obsessed with; death.

Death is the core to this cult. They are fascinated by it, in almost sick and twisted ways, many even seem eager for them and theirs to die (apparently they get a reward for worshipping the zombie-god and eating his flesh and blood, which I will explain later). Death is everything in this cult, they continually rave on about how their god died horribly, crucified on a cross, pierced by a spear, with a crown of thorns, and yet, how he came back from the dead. I have already mentioned how they seem to enjoy telling children this, and emphasising how zombie-god died in horrible pain, with blood and shouting and crying and, of course, death.

The central doctrine of this cult seems to be this idea that after death, if you've worshipped zombie-god well enough, and have eaten his flesh and blood and made sure to make others do so too, and ensure that they are having sex the correct way (and making sure that women do as they're told, another big part of this cult seems to be on women subservience), then they get a reward, a place called 'Heaven'. None of the cultists seem to know what Heaven is actually like, none of them have been there, or even seen it - though they all agree it's apparently 'wonderful'.

Heaven plays as a contrast to what happens to non-believers (and women who don't accept their role as subservient to man, as well as those who don't have sex the correct way), apparently the opposite of Heaven is 'Hell'. Contrary to Heaven, most of the cultists seem to agree that Hell is a horrible place full of fire and burning and torture. Like Heaven, none of them have been there or seen it, but they all agree that it's 'horrible'. Apparently there is also a counterpart to zombie-god who reigns in Hell (though he is apparently, not a god), he is apparently, an 'angel' (I was informed that angels are winged creatures that the zombie-god made for the sole purpose of worshipping him and running his errands for those times when, despite his omnipotence, he couldn't be bothered) who rebelled against zombie-god and so was thrown down into Hell and decided to rule it. The cultists seem quite divided on whether he is the root of all evil, (many of them believe humans are the cause of all evil in the universe) and indeed, whether he even exists. How a cult claiming to hold the absolute truth cannot even decide on whether the root of evil is humanity or a slave-creature that rebelled and was thrown into fire is beyond me.

Again, the cultists take a lot of pleasure in teaching children about these places, especially about how if they do not fawn over zombie-god, they will be thrown into a pit of fire and burn for eternity. The children - about the right age to still believe in bogeymen living under their beds - seem terrified at this, and it seemed to cause must anxiety, fear and even outright crying and breaking down. One particular trick I have seen these cultists use is to emphasise how the zombie-god apparently died for them, and so attempt to guilt the child into joining the cult.

The cult spends a lot of time talking, teaching, raving, about the dead, what happens to them, why it happens (always pinning blame on the dead person if they go to Hell, and putting congratulations onto zombie-god if they go to Heaven) and how their god died in a horrible way to save them, but came back (on account of being an immortal, omnipotent, omniscient, invulnerable god), thus proving that the cult's god is loving since he allowed himself to die and come back for humanity's sake. How exactly an immortal and omnipotent god being crucified and so only fake-dying can be considered dying for humanity the cult didn't tell me, for they began to insist that I convert, for only by accepting that zombie-god died horribly for my apparent 'sins' (sins seem to be whatever zombie-god doesn't agree with at various times), and then by partaking in their rituals and eating his flesh and drinking his blood, only by doing that would I escape burning forever in a pit of fire which no one has seen outside of dreams and be taken up to a heaven who no one can describe since they have never seen it outside of dreams either (yet they can describe Hell?).

Now, this cult goes by the name of the physical incarnation of their god - the one who died 'for humanity's sins' - Christ. They call themselves 'Christians', and their cult 'Christianity'. I ask you please, wherever you find these cultists trying to spread their ideas, trying to describe zombie-god's violent death and the terrors of Hell to small children, fight them, force them to keep their cult to themselves, don't let them infest society, much less government. We've allowed this charade to continue far enough, it's time to see the elephant in the room; we cannot allow a cult of death to rule our lives.

By David Andrew Dugle ~ O ctober. Halloween. It's time to visit the haunted house I used to live in. When I was five my dad was able to build a big modern house. Moving in before it was complete, my younger brother and I were sleeping in a large unfinished area directly under the living room. It should have been too new to be a haunted house, but now and then I would wake up in the tiny, dark hours and see the blurry image of a face, or at least what I took to be a face, glowing, faintly yellow, high up on the wall near the ceiling. I'm not kidding! Most nights it didn’t appear at all. But when it did show itself, at first I thought it was a ghost and it scared me like nothing else I’d ever seen. But the face never did anything; unmoving, it just stayed in that one spot. Turning on the lights would make it disappear, making my fears difficult to explain, so I never told anyone. My Sunday School teachers had always told me to be good because God was just behind m

The Blame Game or Shit Happens

By Webmdave ~ A relative suffering from Type 1 diabetes was recently hospitalized for an emergency amputation. The physicians hoped to halt the spread of septic gangrene seeping from an incurable foot wound. Naturally, family and friends were very concerned. His wife was especially concerned. She bemoaned, “I just don’t want this (the advanced sepsis and the resultant amputation) to be my fault.” It may be that this couple didn’t fully comprehend the seriousness of the situation. It may be that their choice of treatment was less than ideal. Perhaps their home diabetes maintenance was inconsistent. Some Christians I know might say the culprit was a lack of spiritual faith. Others would credit it all to God’s mysterious will. Surely there is someone or something to blame. Someone to whom to ascribe credit. Isn’t there? A few days after the operation, I was talking to a man who had family members who had suffered similar diabetic experiences. Some of those also suffered ea

Christian TV presenter reads out Star Wars plot as story of salvation

An email prankster tricked the host of a Christian TV show into reading out the plots of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Star Wars in the belief they were stories of personal salvation. The unsuspecting host read out most of the opening rap to The Fresh Prince, a 1990s US sitcom starring Will Smith , apparently unaware that it was not a genuine testimony of faith. The prankster had slightly adapted the lyrics but the references to a misspent youth playing basketball in West Philadelphia would have been instantly familiar to most viewers. The lines read out by the DJ included: "One day a couple of guys who were up to no good starting making trouble in my living area. I ended up getting into a fight, which terrified my mother." The presenter on Genesis TV , a British Christian channel, eventually realised that he was being pranked and cut the story short – only to move on to another spoof email based on the plot of the Star Wars films. It began: &quo

Why I left the Canadian Reformed Church

By Chuck Eelhart ~ I was born into a believing family. The denomination is called Canadian Reformed Church . It is a Dutch Calvinistic Christian Church. My parents were Dutch immigrants to Canada in 1951. They had come from two slightly differing factions of the same Reformed faith in the Netherlands . Arriving unmarried in Canada they joined the slightly more conservative of the factions. It was a small group at first. Being far from Holland and strangers in a new country these young families found a strong bonding point in their church. Deutsch: Heidelberger Katechismus, Druck 1563 (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) I was born in 1955 the third of eventually 9 children. We lived in a small southern Ontario farming community of Fergus. Being young conservative and industrious the community of immigrants prospered. While they did mix and work in the community almost all of the social bonding was within the church group. Being of the first generation born here we had a foot in two

Are You an Atheist Success Story?

By Avangelism Project ~ F acts don’t spread. Stories do. It’s how (good) marketing works, it’s how elections (unfortunately) are won and lost, and it’s how (all) religion spreads. Proselytization isn’t accomplished with better arguments. It’s accomplished with better stories and it’s time we atheists catch up. It’s not like atheists don’t love a good story. Head over to the atheist reddit and take a look if you don’t believe me. We’re all over stories painting religion in a bad light. Nothing wrong with that, but we ignore the value of a story or a testimonial when we’re dealing with Christians. We can’t be so proud to argue the semantics of whether atheism is a belief or deconversion is actually proselytization. When we become more interested in defining our terms than in affecting people, we’ve relegated ourselves to irrelevance preferring to be smug in our minority, but semantically correct, nonbelief.

Reasons for my disbelief

By Rebekah ~ T here are many layers to the reasons for my disbelief, most of which I haven't even touched on here... When I think of Evangelical Christianity, two concepts come to mind: intense psychological traps, and the danger of glossing over and missing a true appreciation for the one life we know that we have. I am actually agnostic when it comes to a being who set creation in motion and remains separated from us in a different realm. If there is a deistic God, then he/she doesn't particularly care if I believe in them, so I won't force belief and instead I will focus on this one life that I know I have, with the people I can see and feel. But I do have a lot of experience with the ideas of God put forth by Evangelical Christianity, and am confident it isn't true. If it's the case god has indeed created both a physical and a heavenly spiritual realm, then why did God even need to create a physical realm? If the point of its existence is to evolve to pas
