LRFotS Randale6 and I had a long conversation via email on a number of topics, stemming from his idea that someone like me should start up a successor site to the old Return of Kings platform. He mentioned that I had said something along these lines in the past, which I do vaguely recall doing at some point, I just can’t remember exactly when or where. From there, he asked why Roosh had become such a fanatic and a hardliner, and lost his sense of humour. I pointed out that this is a direct consequence of Roosh’s personality, which shows a strong tendency to go to extremes too easily, and that we shouldn’t be too judgemental about him, because even someone like me would be considered “fundamentalist” by most normies.
Randale6 stated that he has a hard time believing in any religion or ideology precisely because of the hardliners, as he perceives Roosh to be. But it seemed to me that, given his lack of overt hostility to Christianity and Christ, he had a number of questions on the subjects of religion, faith, and Christianity, and I invited him to ask me anything he might like on these subjects.
Here is the list of questions that our friend wants answered (slightly edited for spelling and capitalisations, but otherwise exactly as sent to me):
- How does one reconcile Man’s free will with God’s omniscience?
- What is your thinking on the Masons/Deists and their various offshoots (most prominent being the Mormons)?
- Is Heaven any better than Hell? (To be honest with you, adoring God for all eternity kind of sounds like a mental Hell to me…)
- Why is the Bible so scant on descriptions of Heaven? (Islam by contrast tells you explicitly what you’re getting, sounds like one of the best afterlives I’ve ever heard of…at least if we go by the 72 houri version)
- What is the fate of those souls Christian missionaries never reached? (e.g the Native Americans pre-Columbus, the Chinese pre-Marco Polo would be another example)
- Why does Christianity cuck so readily? (Particularly when compared to its heretical child known as Islam, which for all its faults seems to understand that some behaviors should just not be tolerated.)
- Must a Christian truly forgive all sins against him or can he put to the sword those who have gravely wronged him, his family and his people? (e.g were the actions of someone like say Vlad the Impaler justified given the threats and trespasses of the Ottomans against him and his kingdom)
This is a very comprehensive and important set of questions, and I am very pleased to have an opportunity to answer them. I did my best to do so in a manner that is both informative and precise, but inevitably, since I’m only human, I’m sure I got a few things wrong. As such, I welcome my wiser and more informed Christian brothers to provide their comments and views on what I have said, in the chat.
Here’s the episode:
In addition, friend and LRFotS JohnC911 had a very interesting follow-up to Episode 100 of the main Didactic Mind podcast on a related but separate topic:
Didactic I do have a question and it relates to the immigration into the west from countries like India and the Middle East.
When major problems of the west start to happen and living in the west becomes unbearable for many of the non Europeans, how will the countries that receive them be affected?
I am thinking for example such as Arabs that were brought up in the west returning to countries such as Saudi Arabia, Indians returning to India from the west.
Would the western liberal influence infected the countries or the opposite? Would there be religious and ideological problems cause?
I answer this question by breaking it up into two parts with two subsections each. Essentially, I take the view that the wealthy and internationally mobile elite immigrants will return to their old countries, and will bring with them some of the GloboHomoPaedo disease. Those not capable of moving, will stay in the West, and become ever more radicalised and angry and difficult. There will be inevitable reactions and pushbacks against both types. I go into the details at some length in this podcast.
As always, let me know what you think in the comments, and be sure to like, share, and subscribe.
Here are a few of the books and references that I discussed in the podcast, plus a few others that I think make for very useful additional reading:
- The Irrational Atheist by Vox Day
- The Unseen Realm by Dr. Michael Heiser
- The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran by Christoph Luxenberg
- The Critical Quran by Dr. Robert Spencer
- Did Mohammed Exist? (Revised & Expanded Edition) by Dr. Robert Spencer
- Mohammed and Charlemagne Revisited by Emmet Scott
- The Impact of Islam by Emmet Scott
Protect Yourself From Big Tech
I make some pretty incendiary statements in this podcast, and in most of my podcasts. I can only do so because I take steps to protect myself from the Big Tech companies, and preserve my identity. You need to do the same – this is no longer optional, because if you don’t, the gatekeepers WILL come for your head.
If you don’t know where to start, then I’ve got you covered right here with this post. Here are the specific steps that you can take:
- Make sure that your web traffic is safe and protected from prying eyes using a VPN – click here to get a massive 80% OFF on a 24-month subscription with Surfshark;
- Other VPN options for you include Atlas VPN, brought to you by the same company that creates NordVPN, and Goose VPN, both of which offer excellent services for a very compelling price;
- The best SSD drive that you can get right now, with blazing fast speeds and near-native storage capabilities, is probably the SanDisk Extreme 1TB Portable SSD with NVMe technology – I bought this myself to keep a moving backup of all of my files, it’s the size of a credit card, and it’s absolutely superb;
