Iblis didn’t bow to humans – In a sence, I think I can understand why.

That title is horrible, but it gets the point across and I’m too tired and pressed for time to try and think of an alternative. Man is said to have been Gods greatest creation. Iblis refused to bow down before man. Given what I’m feeling about ‘many’ people these days, I can understand why bowing down before man might have been an ‘issue’. Of course I’m not excising Satans defiance of God.

The other day I was attending a philosophical discourse (actually ‘talk’ with a lot of Q and A – would perhaps be more representative descriptor) examining “Islam (in terms of immigration) in Europe”.

It was a worthwhile use of time, and I was glad to attend it. The good doc posed a number of apparently pushme-pullyou Q’s as one may expect from good philosophers ;) By the way, I wish philosophers would not only ask skilful and quirky Q’s but propose skilful solutions, even if they don’t hold a piece of paper that identifies them as being “qualified” (what ever that means) in political science.

I had the opportunity – rather, I took it – to challenge some of the assumptions I heard. For example the ‘negative’ image of Muslims due to 911 and Madrid etc, I advised caution on these ‘facts’ {not that the speaker was saying they were facts, but I’m pretty sure the audience was taking them to be so}. I pointed out that even if one accepts the 911 stuff, out of the 1 billion + Muslims, only a relative handful are involved in terrorism. Yeah, it’s the kind of thing one would expect to encounter in the first few pages of a “beginners guide to challenging your own perceptions’”, but still, it needed to be said. These ‘givens’ are quite prolific!

Some of what the audience said was slightly surreal and actually agitating, because while most of the Muslims in the ‘audience’ were challenging the basis of the European Islamophobia, many of the Muslims in the audience had inside them the same seeds but whose only difference was these seeds had already germinated in the mind of Europeans to result in their European Islamophobia. One such “seed” is a general acceptance that the Muslims did 9/11, 7/7, Madrid, Killing Van Gough* etc. I was the only one to challenge what occurred to me was a “tried ‘n convicted / done ‘n dusted” belief in the official narratives of these violent events.

This is a disease amongst Muslims. They positively lap up accusations of gross crimes of terrorism upon themselves – a bit like the Germans that have been forced to be so guilty of the Jewish holocaust that they stand back once again at the Palestinian Holocaust despite them singing to the orchestrators tune of ‘never again’.

Pah! – but at the same time absolutely incredible that they are happeing today.

A real ‘crunch’ moment was someone said ‘we have to deal with the realities’

Do people actually understand what really means?

I think not!

I think they just blurt out catchphrases in an attempt to appear clever, supermarket philosophy if you will, to be intellectually lazy and avoid perturbing their safety zone.

I tried to inform them. “Whose Reality?” I asked.

You see, once you ‘deal with the reality’ what happens after that is that you have accepted the reality set by others – you become bound to operate within it, complete with its bent and twisted rules. You strip yourself of power. It’s a mugs game, a dereliction of duty to oneself and society. A failure of your own human-ness.

By NOT ‘dealing with the reality’ i.e. grabbing hold of your own destiny and making the reality in defiance of someone else’s dictated reality, I’m not talking about producing chocolate houses in the woods, giant beanstalks or geese that lay golden eggs. I’m talking about the parameters of human society, not a fairytale as a reality.

This world is CRAP because WE, you and me, have allowed it to be CRAP.

The ‘comfort zone’ is incredibly captivating and sticky. It’s also incredibly selfish and dumb.

After I had done my bit, I felt a bit like not much had soaked through their skulls, once again denting the supposed ‘potential’ of today’s humankind.

A couple of days later, I was involved in a workshop of conflict resolution. Two groups were assembled to take an opposing view of some issue. The group I was in was to defend a policy of positive discrimination in favour of an indigenous population against the wealth and educational dominance of an immigrant population. I was supposed to argue this way, but there was an opportunity here to probe people mind about what they think life is all about.

I asked Q’s like by what standard are you saying the indigenous population are ‘left behind’. You see it was the immigrants economics and way of life that was the benchmark. If the indigenous population weren’t forced into that system in the first place but allowed to operate in whatever way THEY saw fit then if they stuck with their traditions, the ‘left behind’ thing becomes a non issue. The people in my group simply couldn’t understand what I was saying. To them it was inconceivable, like I was speaking Martian. They ended up trying to ‘explain it to me’ as if I was dumb (which I may well be, but I wasn’t dumb in this case!) and that it was ME that simply couldn’t grasp the concept. I was the dumb ‘outsider’ I actually felt quite intellectually superior to these people – which in a number of ways is worrying; As I’m sure you’ll probably agree.

I’ll end with the last point today. This story:

Study examines scientists’ ‘climate credibility’

“Some 98% of climate scientists that publish research on the subject support the view that human activities are warming the planet, a study suggests.” – source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science_and_environment/10370955.stm

Crikey. The HUGE majority of academic papers I’ve seen attach “hopeful” (that’s being diplomatic!) taglines to their papers saying things like “This will contribute to a cure for HIV/Cancer/Malaria” blah blah blah. One highly respected academic confided in me that they attach stuff entertaining a Darwinian viewpoint to their papers or else their papers simply won’t get published, but they themselves don’t believe anything to do with Darwinism at all.

The point is, the game is rigged and if you don’t pander to it, then your toast. It’s a ‘Mark of the Beast’ kind of thing. This BBC story, like so many BBC newz stories is meaningless bumfluff.

Man it’s been a weird few weeks.

* ‘A Muslim (not the singular) may have killed Theo Van Gogh, but no actual act of violence (which automatically gets promoted to terrorism or even better still ‘ISLAMIC terrorism’) springs forth from the vacuum, yet that is how these events are spun out, that there is a bunch of backwards men who out of their own choice decided non-Muslims must be exterminated. And not springing forth from the vacuum is NOT an excuse for acts of violence, and similarly there are provocative acts that DO require a violent response – when for example a demon like Tony Blair robs the lives of 1,400,000 men women and children. The killing of Blair’s murder by those who are his victims is a very persuasive argument – an act of natural justice.
