The ABCD's of self inflicted Apocalipse

A: The Apocalipse, the big one, strides along with us like a shadow attached to our feet. We suck up the earth's bounty and pollute her with our byproducts, we live within a finite enviroment yet believe in endless growth, we all breathe the same air yet deny the reality of the ever present connection, our immersion, our common roots in the one pagan life.

Long ago a psychotic named Abraham dragged his own son to a mountaintop and demanded proof of his one god's existance saying if god didn't deliver the proof Abraham woud kill his own son. Luckily, at least for the kid, Abe's dementia extended to the realm of hearing voices [and believing what they said]. The voice in Abraham's head said to spare the kid, and that not only was this the voice of the one true god but that humans had a special connection to the one god and that all creation was there for man's use and pleasure, that man was seperate and had dominion over all.

From this babble of bullshit invented by insanity the 3 huge religions of Islam, Judism and Christianity descended. This single central lie of the Abrahamic religions, the lie of seperatation from and dominion over the rest of creation, set the stage for the repression of the goddess, the Great Mother, the common light of the world. She was mysterious, changable, playful and the resentful priests of the Yahweh cult, a tribe of nomadic Hebrews, who led a coup against her about 4,000 years ago, most of what we know as western civilization is the result.

i can hear the Apocalipse striding along beside me, its footsteps sound like bank vaults slamming shut, it smells like crude oil on the feathers of shore birds, its voice sings the siren's song of materialism as its hand, like ours, grasps endlessly for more.

"The Goddess in all her manifestations was a symbol of the unity of all life in Nature. Her power was in water and stone, in tomb and cave, in animals and birds, snakes and fish, hill, trees, and flowers." - Marija Gimbutas
