og Poet Transmitting…….
A lot of celebrities are atheists and that is not surprising because most actors are generally egotists. It comes with the territory. They tend to ‘celebrate’ their celebrity, believing that their abilities are self generated. Sometimes though, they get accused of being atheists when technically they are not. They are more in the agnostic don’t know category and that is different. What is less surprising to me and none of it is surprising in any case, are the amount of gay actors that are atheists. Most of the time, atheism comes out of one’s inability to accommodate their lifestyle to the pronouncements of scripture. In some Eastern religious systems they are less condemnatory but none of them support, promote or validate this form of behavior. They just acknowledge that differences happen and that there are all manner of challenges that come upon a person based on their plumbing, which gets routed in the early years by environment and that is why so many of them form such dramatic attachments to their mother who is often the cause, when it isn’t the result of a negative or absentee father figure. My take is that it is something we all pass through, like everything else.
We have often pointed out here that nearly all atheistic beliefs are caused by a reaction to the hypocrisies of organized religion and have nothing to do with the existence of god apart from religion. I am very fortunate given that I have direct, repeated evidence of an ineffable being. I am not talking about psychic encounters or supernatural or metaphysical events that came about through the ingestion of psychedelics or unexplainable events. There have been many of those and many of those have been legitimate encounters. I am talking about those events that have happened apart from any of these influences and which have been a consistent part of my life and are happening more and more as time passes and I have less and less to do with comestibles.
