The problem has always been with man’s obsession to project humanism into the macrocosm. People always inquire: Is there a god? By god they of course intend to mean determination and control and the answer for it—is a resounding yes! I do not want to be misunderstood as I said on another of my article ―as a man who rejects the existence of determining forces. I believe in the determining nature of the impersonal and demystified forces of nature. When we analyze the question itself: Is there a god? We come across the personalizing term ‘god’. Humans have always been comfortable with their one kind; they give faces, torso and names to even inanimate objects in order to be comfortable with them. When they see lion cubs in the wild they like to give them names; when they buy pets from the store they dress them with human attire and costumes; when they make a cartoon movie about wild animals like —The Lion king or Madagascar; they insert the various personalities found in their own human societies into the these wild animals making them talk, walk, plot, and even talk like humans and ‘god’ as the theory of everything which exists in nature is not different. Rationally it does exist either as a mathematical formula or some sort of natural force; but never as a human being like Jesus, Zeus or Marduk. This is really silly, puerile and naïve.
The divinity in mystical terms or the determining essence in rational terms of nature is 100% certain beyond any doubt. But, I believe nature understands more mathematics than natural human languages, rhapsodies, recitations, wailing, poems, prayers, sacrifices and lamentations that do not mean anything at all and have no results what so ever. That is what has been established through our journey as humans throughout history. So, basically humans are committing three grave errors consecutively in their metaphysics the 1st error is personalization of nature and the 2nd is mystification of nature and 3rd is imposition of claptrap; because an inept system needs to be imposed because it does not convince sage individuals or work at all; that is why mystics chase after everybody despite his freedom of choice and absolute pre-option; because, as idealist; they, believe that there is no truth and whatever people believe will be the truth; they chase after everybody and he has to be convinced by force; whether he likes it or not; which is really ridiculous; they are obsessed in the ways of convincing people and twisting their minds rather than in the ways of proving inextinguishable eternal realistic facts for people.
So, as I said above there are three erroneous steps committed by mystic’s personalization, mystification (mythological engagement) and imposition (force belief on others as a system of hope). In reverse naturalists proceed in the opposite direction by implementing―Impersonalization of natural forces (utilizing the law of identity A is A— and seeing everything for what it is), demystification (mathematical engagement) and presentation (of evidence). We must remember that before this worse version of mysticism called ‘supernaturalism’ came along ; ancient mystics like that of Hesiod where pantheists; the origin of their gods and goddesses was from nature see his ‘chaos theory’ of the genesis of the gods or read the Theogony which is like the Bible of the ancient world. Thus, it will be mandatory for all of us to rectify our engagement with the natural world.
Next time you her a mystic stating whether an atom or a natural force is conscious to do what it does; remember , that he is attempting to personalize natural forces. Natural forces do what they do because they are what they are end of story. They have their own essence according to the third law of thought ―The law of identity; thus, an atom is an atom; a tornado is a tornado and a human is a human; each natural force is unique. Thus, the manner of engagement with all these forces of nature also differs from one force to the other. We shouldn’t be bothered and drive ourselves crazy expecting the consciousness of an atom or how a tornado could operate with all that force without a muscle like a human being. I think this law in logic is going to save us from the error of personification and the cascade that I talked about above which always leads to imposition.
We have lost already several famous scientists and philosophers to the three errors like Socrates, and currently even in the 21st century we have prosecution and even execution of rational people; who refuse to personalize natural forces, to follow the three erroneous steps and become mystics who adore the grave rather than longevity. This error in human thinking has always been a curse in the society; this obsession with personalization has created so many calamities; there is no need to believe in personalized gods as there is no need in believing in true existence of Simba in the Lion king. The forces of nature in conjunction with the law of identity will suffice in becoming the theory of everything. Belief has no benefit to mankind and it has no results on the ground; if belief had any efficacy to it the belief of believers would have turned the planet flat.
When people start to depersonalize the forces of nature and see all of them for exactly what they are then there is no need for the quest of a man on a golden chair in space holding a crook his hand. When people start confusing an atom and a tornado with a human being; then, they are in big trouble and at risk to fall into the trap of the perplexed system of idealism. They will reach to the maddening state where they will say that the material world is the creation of their minds; whatever they believe will be the truth and they will place themselves at the center of the Universe; preparing for extinction. Instead, of seeing every existent natural force outside the observer for exactly for what it is, understanding its nature, how it works and utilizing that knowledge to promote longevity and bliss.
All this mess in human philosophy and action wouldn’t have occurred if people understood and accepted the laws of Logic developed by sapient philosophers for the benefit of humanity. They wouldn’t have digressed into this co called ‘spiritualism’ an empty system of nonsense; which creates more suffering than it aspires to solve. A topsy-turvy system of mysticism created by clueless charlatans throughout history has become a toxic mix by which young people become intoxicated and a tinder in which the infrastructure of human civilization burns to the ground by their activities as can be witnessed today from mystical terrorism all over the world. Thus, to conclude matters I would advise people to follow the righteous path of rational people of impersonalization, demystification and presentation rather than vise-versa to save themselves and others from confusion, hopelessness, disease and death deviating into futile idealism which has no benefit for mankind at all.
