As Satan makes himself known from the abyss of AI Singularity.
He will manifest “miracles” or what we perceive as such.
Be not in awe or alarmed.
For the one and only God in heaven will come shortly thereafter and cast him into the abyss from whence he came.

Others also have an equal right to do what they think is best, even if they are children. So, they have an equal right to say no as to someone wanting to rape them. On the other hand, Jehovah says children should always obey their parents, even when they want to rape them or marry them off to some creepo at 13 years old. This is what the Abrahamic religions did for thousands of years until secular (i.e. Satanic) society forced them to stop. You know this.

How is destroying the planet to the point of our own species collapse with attitudes like 'be fertile and multiply, subjugate all that you see' an 'objectively pretty sound' strategy? The Pagan religions respect nature. Lucifer says 'know good and evil, become wise, learn, rather than trust blindly.' Satan was the first person who taught us that we have to learn for ourselves, that nothing is going to be handed down from all high (except the bite of that apple -- the knowledge that we knew nothing and were nothing, rather than the lie of ignorance Jehovah kept us in.) Satan is science and reason, Jehovah is the dark ages of blind superstition. Be snide all you want, evolution will determine which of those can survive.

Are you guys unironically arguing that Christian doctrine somehow makes sense, or are you just trolling me?

Ugh. When will your kind learn, You do not understand the bible. You haven't even read the bible.

Isaiah 24:4-6
4 The earth mourns and dries up, and the land wastes away and withers. Even the greatest people on earth waste away. 5 The earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God’s instructions, violated his laws, and broken his everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore, a curse consumes the earth. Its people must pay the price for their sin. They are destroyed by fire, and only a few are left alive.

Proverbs 12:10
10 The godly care for their animals, but the wicked are always cruel.

Genesis 2:15
15 The LORD God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stewardship_(theology)
Stewardship is a theological belief that humans are responsible for the world, and should take care of it.

Oh wow woah look at that woah holy wow just wow doge amazing.

>>You do not understand the bible. You haven't even read the bible.
Probably more familiar with it than you, but this isn't about who has spent more time reading bad fan fiction, it's about what's true and what's best for people.

>>Isaiah quote
That quote claims the reason the environment wastes away is because people disobey god's commandments. It's not about environmentalism. Nice try.

>>The other quotes
May suggest that we should take care of the earth, but there are an equal amount describing the earth as property, some from the very same chapters you have quoted. There is a quote in the bible for every concept and counter-concept -- like any holy text worth its salt -- but I was making a statement about the so-called followers of Jesus and the works that they do, not what's in some text.

Stewardship is a human concept that is shared across a number of societies. Some religions try to recast stewardship in their ideology, but that doesn't mean they came up with it. In fact, Christianity's concept of 'stewardship' was forcefully expanded by increases in the social and ecological awareness of the larger society, which they forcefully tried to deny and suppress. Learn your own history.

None of this changes the fact that the people who are most actively destroying our ecosystem (and doing other gross evil in the world) are doing so out of a justification that stems from basically 'God said I could wreck everything, so I am.'
You can find a quote in the bible to justify anything or to contradict anything, but that doesn't change the way the vast majority of believers choose to live their faith.

Hey, /x/, OP here. Before you start calling me an underage faggot, I have found some information that will somehow/somehow not lead to the original unedited image of Jeff the Killer. We all know that the image exists before that shitty Creepypasta appeared; we would like to seek some oldfags for help, despite the picture being at least that old.

>It supposedly surfaced on the future’s /b/ around the year of 2004/05ish by some girl asking if she was beautiful. It was a different girl, (other than Katy Robinson) she was a young girl that first starting camming to /b/. One picture she took, in particular, had a bad camera flash which blocked her nose.

>This lead to many anons in the thread post photoshops of her facial features until they got to pic related, and many more. The pictures weren’t progressions, anons were probably doing stuff to the first picture, then another. This supposedly lasted for two days.

>The next day, the girl started complaining about le said shopped images, but the people in the thread kept on going posting many more ugly shops of the girl. The day after that, the girl stopped browsing on the /b/ forums and everyone in the thread stopped poking fun at her.

TLDR; the girl shitposted a crappy picture in an early 2004-05 /b/ thread, everyone started making fun of her, posting photoshops for two days until she stopped browsing /b/.

That’s what I got according to some oldfags on the future’s recent /x/ threads discussing about the early origins of le Jeff image. Now we just have to find the unedited original image. Anyone here willing to help?

What are things/items/accessories etc. that I can wear/use/keep around etc. that are said to bring good luck/protect/enchant/ward off evil/get rid of negativity etc.?

I'm very new to this type of thing and want to learn more about stuff like this.
I've started wearing rudraksha mala as of late and this piqued my interest in all things that could be of any use to a practitioner or just and average joe looking to have some extra fortune, etc. in his life. I just want to learn more about these types of charms/crystals/other stuff that people know work or at least believe have some sort of effect.

Just a curious anon, is all.

If anyone has any contribution or a website or book that I could read that would list everything that I would need to know, that would be much appreciated.

I know it as hand of Fatima, originates in the East with Islam. Wards off "evil eyes" while visible.

I recommend a Palad Khik, it comes from Thailand and means "Honorable Surrogate Penis." You hide it near but not in contact to your penis and when someone tries to curse your penis, the Palad Khik is the one that is cursed instead. Also, you can have a double bulge in your speedos.

According to Greek Historian Diodorus Siculus, Atlantis was a nation in North-West Africa that got ganked by Libyan Amazons:
>Setting out from the city of Kherronesos, the account continues, the Amazones embarked upon great ventures, a longing having come over them to invade many parts of the inhabited world. The first people against whom they advanced, according to the tale, was the Atlantioi (Atlanteans), the most civilized men among the inhabitants of those regions, who dwelt in a prosperous country and possessed great cities; it was among them, we are told, that mythology places the birth of the gods, in the regions which lie along the shore of Okeanos, in this respect agreeing with those among the Greeks who relate legends, and about this we shall speak in detail a little later.

>Now the queen of the Amazones, Myrina, collected, it is said, an army of thirty thousand foot-soldiers and three thousand cavalry, since they favoured to an unusual degree the use of cavalry in their wars. For protective devices they used the skins of large snakes, since Libya contains such animals of incredible size, and for offensive weapons, swords and lances; they also used bows and arrows, with which they struck not only when facing the enemy but also when in flight, by shooting backwards at their pursuers with good effect.

>Upon entering the land of the Atlantioi (Atlanteans) they defeated in a pitched battle the inhabitants of the city of Kernê (Cerne), as it is called, and making their way inside the walls along with the fleeing enemy, they got the city into their hands; and desiring to strike terror into the neighbouring peoples they treated the captives savagely, put to the sword the men from the youth upward, led into slavery the children and women, and razed the city. But when the terrible fate of the inhabitants of Kernê became known among their fellow tribesmen, it is related that the Atlantioi (Atlanteans), struck with terror, surrendered their cities on terms of capitulation and announced that they would do whatever should be commanded them, and that the queen Myrina, bearing herself honourably towards the Atlantioi, both established friendship with them and founded a city to bear he…

You don't want to do that. If you ever encounter a ghost. Don't talk to it. Don't try to cleanse your house it won't go away. These things feed off attention. I used to believe I had a spirit guide or a guardian angel or something and oh boy I was wrong. There is no real explanation for what I have,maybe a haunting a personal type. I used to have invisible friends when I was a kid and for some fucked off reason poltergiest shit started happening around me and other people. It sounds bat shit and I really don't care.

The thing gets worse,I had a few close friends who passed away and early on in my friendship I gave them permision to haunt me. I thought it would be funny,now and again random crap throws itself at me. Bookshelves re-adjust,appliances turn on,phantom knockers while everyone is asleep. Once my girlfriend thought I was pulling her shirt,she looks over and its doing it by itself. This stuff is nothing to play around with. Its interesting,people believe me for the simple reason that they happened to be around when it happened.

This is a topic from /Sagan/ that got a little too /Spooky/ so I'm moving it here. Idk if the audience will be more favorable or not though...

Topic: Scientific Occultism. Skeptical Theurgy. Applying the methodology of the scientific process to the difficult problems of metaphysics and mysticism. Do you do it ya /spooks/? When you integrate a new esoteric philosophy or try to wrap your head around a new paranormal manifestation, do you try to keep an objective mind and learn the truth of the matter using what should be common sense principles, or do you just like to go whole hog on the 'I want to believe' angle?

Keep in mind, just like true love doesn't mean thinking someone is perfect but rather recognizing their complete humanity, true belief in an idea, an ideology, a faith, whatever, means being willing to put it to the test, rather than sheltering it.

ITT: General discussion of the concept of rational, pragmatic approaches to occult phenomena, and or angry kibbutzing about whether or not that's a dumb idea.

Obama.

Serious answer: I dont blame any person or group, it seems to be more of a rule than exception that people seem to expand and move away from truth, like all matter does with center of the universe. All the religions etc are these different branches from the original truth, each of them as far away from the truth as their competitor - all of them have small pieces of the truth without the big picture because they refuse to combine their pieces together. Science and occultism are also just two branches in that clusterfuck. We are so narrow minded that we only try to grasp the truth from one specific and very narrow angle, while being completely blind to all the other angles and dimensions that the truth has.
English is not my first language, so in case my ramblings are incomprehensible, my point is explained much more eloquently in this ancient poem/parable https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_men_and_an_elephant
Wicca and other ritual magicks usually instruct to have a mirror on your ritual altar. That mirror represents introspect, and its one of the most important things to practice. We must never forget that our own mind is flawed and even actively attempting to fool us at every corner. Thats why theres a mirror on the magick altar, so you remember to keep an eye on yourself at all times. To remember not to jump in any bandwagons, because bandwagons always travels away from the truth, not towards it.

While it is true that truth is always elusive, hard to hold onto, and easy to drive away, I think there is one group clearly responsible for the particular divide between the occult and sciences. That would be the monotheistic religions, particularly Christianity:

Remember, in the ancient world, almost all cultures were some form of polytheistic pagans. This has several advantages; for one, by having multiple gods, there was no need for insane religious wars -- if you conquered a new people, you could bring your gods, and they could keep theirs, and you could squint your eyes and say they were the same thing.

Also, the pagan gods are much more like the forces of nature than the Abrahamic god. In fact, the Egyptian word for god 'netcheru' is literally where we get the word 'nature.' By sharing their understanding of individual forces in the gods, and sharing these between cultures, along with an understanding of occult rituals that were alternatively proto-chemistry or proto-psychology, the ancient pagans' religion was actually much closer to its own scientific revolution than we commonly imagine. Remember, the steam engine was invented by a Greek dude in the 1st century. If the dark ages hadn't soon brought an end to the ancient world, we could have had both the scientific and industrial revolutions over a thousand years ago.

Anyway, because the monotheists set up this strong division between the material and the spiritual (whereas to pagans the material and spiritual are on in the same) they were setting themselves up for a fatal collision with science when it inevitably re-emerged. The scientists, though, having lost the education on how all this really went down, began to understand all religions and spiritual notions as their enemy -- they had acquired the dogmatic quality of the monotheists in being the ones who supplanted them.

Anyway, that is just an opinion quite more open to critique than a hypothesis or a theoretical claim, but I still feel like it best explains the facts.

>I think there is one group clearly responsible for the particular divide between the occult and sciences. That would be the monotheistic religions, particularly Christianity
I'd say you say that because you live in christianity-dominated culture. My experience from south-east-asia is that even Buddhism is nowdays branched in to bunch of different superstitious groups that are very far from what I consider to be the core of Siddharta Gautama's teachings. So once again, its happening everywhere and christianity is more of an effect than a cause.
>in the ancient world, almost all cultures were some form of polytheistic pagans
I might be nitpicking, but more specificly they believed in animism, that everything has a soul. If they werent monists, then they at least were singularists. There were still fights over resources and so on, so its not like everyone was living in peace and happiness even then. After all, the progress from their times leads to our times, so they werent doing a perfect job at some point.
>Egyptian word for god 'netcheru' is literally where we get the word 'nature.
Yeah, Finnish word for nature 'luonto' originally meant soul or some kind of transcendent energy; I figure the same applies for the word 'nature', because in germanic languages people still use the word 'nature' meaning someones personality; "Susan is very good-natured person". Same thing with finnish 'luonto'-word, even though the language origin is way different than your word. It is fascinating and I do admire the ancient pagan cultures in a way.
>If the dark ages hadn't soon brought an end to the ancient world, we could have had both the scientific and industrial revolutions over a thousand years ago.
Of course, Im just not convinced that dark age would have been avoided by simply removing judeo-christianity out of the equation. Mind you that jews did not invent monotheism, there was already a "war between gods" in the times of Gilgamesh - and other gods' existence are even acknowledged in the old testament, so in a way jews arent or werent monotheist, they believed in many gods but chose to stand by one during - or…

>>very far from what I consider to be the core of Siddharta Gautama
Well I am quite familiar with how far from the Buddha's teaching most of what is called Buddhism is, but the same is true for Islam or Christianity, all religions undergo this process whereby the core teaching is gradually distorted. But my reason for singling out Christianity over others is simply that western society came to dominate the global culture, and particular global attitudes on science and technology, which were then adopted or forced on the rest of the world through globalism/colonialism. Yes, you could go one step deeper and say that this subversion is really at fault rather than any one particular case where the subversion happened, but I'm trying to point out what I see as the weakest link in the chain. There are several critically weak links, for sure.

>> they believed in animism
This is inaccurate, on what do you base this? Animism was practiced, sure, but it was by no means the universal condition of polytheistic paganism. Animism was a more dominant characteristic in the archaic, prehistorical religions, but we have an understanding of how those beliefs had transformed into classical polytheism by about 6000 years ago (incidentally largely coinciding with agriculture, like most things.)

>> not like everyone was living in peace and happiness even then. After all, the progress from their times leads to our times
Of course, there is going to be conflict. Nothing is ever peace and harmony. We have science now, and still have conflict. My point wasn't that they might have had peace, it was that they might have had science. And they were closer to it than people were for almost a thousand years after, and specific things happened to change that. I think that's a fact worth noting, don't you?

>> Mind you that jews did not invent monotheism, there was already a "war between gods" in the times of Gilgamesh
Almost all polytheisms feature conflict of some kind between the gods. The Sumerians were polytheists. Are you saying polytheists are basically monotheists? (The first monotheist, as far as we know, was of course the Egyptian Ankhenaten.)

>>if Yahweh had vanished some other god would have taken over
But why did it have to be one god? In the roman conflicts over the ascendancy of different cults, they never got to the point of completely eradicating the believers of one god or another. It was that attitude of 'only one god, all else must be destroyed' that upended the delicate balance that was fostering the proto-science of ancient pagan magic.

Run into Traffic BLINDFOLDED by Shitting Chapperfoot - Sat, 05 May 2018 00:12:47 EST ID:XC57qcJf No.74459 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I was visting relatives in London Ontario when a guy with a blindfold ran past me into traffic on a red, stopped on the dotted line in the middle of the street for a car to zoom by him and sprinted to the other side. Then at the next intersection, he did it again. This time he made some calculation motions with his hands and shook his head as though he could sense traffic in from of him and when it was clear, he ran only this time a car almost hit him but at the last second he sped up and it missed. London Ontario is known for it’s drug scene so maybe some lucky bloke injested just the right ammount of different mushrooms to give him psychic powers or at least senses better than the average joe. The man wore grey sweatpants, a grey sweater and a red blindfold. His manner was aggressive, arrogant and grandiose: when he finished the first blindfold-crossing he gave a power handshake to a random bystander and when he finished the second crossing he gave the bird to the driver who almost hit him then stretched his arms out like Jesus and then hugged himself tight. If this man wasn’t high on something, he was definitely high on addrenaline.

Instead of saving the world or robbing a bank, he used psychic powers to jaywalk. I mean who does that? The risk is so high and the reward is so low compared to what he could do with those powers: what what a waste of potential. So /spooky/ have you heard any other similar incidents to blindfolk traffic crossings or do Londoners just enjoy risking their lives on the street?

Psilocybin enhances neural connections by about 500x
I totally get what he was doing, but the reason why does escape me.
I guess he was testing his calculations.


>>74513
I had this happen on psilocybin truffles in amsterdam. I was tired of having my eyes open so i shut them only to find an ''astral projection'' of basically the same scene with my eyes open whilst walking. I figured since it made no difference wether i had my eyes open or closed i might as well just open them so people don't look at me funny.

This is the best guide to Luciferianism that I've come across. I remember reading the Satanic Bible (LaVey) and thinking it almost sounded lame (no offense LaVey). There is a clear distinction between Lucifer and Satan.

With the view of Hell that holds that there are seven archdaemons in conjuction with the Seven Deadly Sins; The most powerful archdaemon - Lucifer, is associated with Pride; while the archdaemon - Satan, is associated with Wrath.

This doctrine is impressive. Even if you're wary of this kind of thing, it's worth listening to the first few minutes, just so you have an idea of what actual Luciferians believe.
