You’ve heard of the God Meme, what about the Meme of God? There is a slight difference, if I reverse god and meme I get a reversal of that energy, and that will help break the holy book spell that has so many men’s consciousness in a rigid monotheistic spell. The word “god” is a meme being used to describe something we don’t fully understand, and memes about god change with time. As our mind mature we keep coming to new realizations about god, and we keep changing our holy book text about him/her.
‘The God Delusion’ declared by atheist Richard Dawkins implies there is no god, while the Meme of God says we are describing God with memes, but we haven’t got it quite right yet. We have developed memes about God, a subtle yet important difference. In a conscious Universe or a simulated one, it is not an exaggeration that god is a program operating in the system.
I am not a believer in the Bible God, but I do believe based on my personal experience, that we are dealing with something real in our consciousness. My experiential knowledge about God is completely different from what I was taught. The importance of this essay is to distinguish the two, god is some thing, a part of consciousness that intersects our own.
If we are describing a background consciousness with new memes of God, and that energy is part of ourselves, then that changes everything. We initially assumed God was separate – an entity outside of ourselves, but that can not be true based on the simple observation that separation of our consciousness from the god part is an illusion. God is the consciousness and we have consciousness, so the two overlap some how.
What you’ve been taught about God and what God actually is are two different things. What we are taught about God is the Jewish holy book is an exaggeration for the simple reason the Jew authors are bullshitters. Check your assumptions about the authorship of the Holy Bible. Who wrote it, are they trustworthy? They lie about everything, so to believe them about god is particularly foolish.
The mistake we are making is assuming that what is being claimed and what is are the same, they are not, but there is some overlap. People who wish to control others have an agenda of power, and those that want power are willing to lie in order to get it. Part of the lying is to claim grandiose attributes of God that are used as a fear tactic for the submission of your mind under the control of the ruling authority.
What is the primary claim about God? God is omnipotent, an all-powerful being. Is that claim true? If millions of people pray for peace but there is no peace, what does that say about God’s power? The claim doesn’t match reality, but that claim was made to establish the ruling authority that is all powerful. The claim about god is to get power, but is not the truth about god.
If God was all powerful and in control as claimed, then why do we experience endless war and chaos? The theist will try to skirt that issue and say all the chaos on earth is part of God’s plan. That is nonsense, if everything is unfolding according to God’s will then we wouldn’t have any chaos at all, unless God was a crazy entity that preferred chaos for it’s own purpose.
The actual reality is that governments are acting like an all powerful god – forcing everyone to submit to the ruling authority that is established with the holy book. God is a meme used to establish the ruling authority. That doesn’t mean god is not real, it just means that ruthless people will say anything to get power.
So the next logical question is does God have any power at all? Many people report miracles concerning their lives and attribute such phenomenon to outside source. So it appears God has some part, but greatly diminished from the claim. God may have some power to change things, but not the way the book describes.
The memes of God are used to describe aspect of ourselves that we do not fully understand, but unfortunately those same memes are used to control us. Believers in the book are enlisted from their own need to control others, thus the popularity of the holy Bible is that it enlists individual will for the broader will of the group (or state). We need to stop using the God meme to control others since doing so violates our divine nature and free will. We also need to start defining what God actually is, and not blindly accept Jewish definitions of God.
