Sample argument: From a purely scientific viewpoint, religious emotion is subjective, genetically-based behavior that inspires individual sacrifice for long term group survival. This is analogous to the way sexual instincts help motivate reproduction, the creation of a family unit, and long term nurturance of offspring. Religions start in history as tribal "natural religions." From a social-Darwinian viewpoint, groups with strong religious instincts often conquer and displace groups with weaker or dysfunctional religious instincts, thereby gaining more territory and hence population expansion for their brand of altruistic genetic expression. For a group's feelings of altruism to continue to survive, a tribe must mate within itself to perpetrate its altruistic genes. When mothers adopt alien children, this can be a parasitic consumption of their altruism if they help alien genes expand at the expense of those of their own tribe. Societies need to maintain their genetic uniqueness in order to better retain their identity, fend off aggressors, optimize group effectiveness, and achieve their highest cultural pitch. Religious feelings often help define the fault lines of irreconcilable differences with other societies. Maintaining awareness of differences through religious code speak can be a good thing. When we mix up all the races, we may smother superior genes within a sea of mediocrity.

Sample argument: Universalistic world religions tend to be "environmental." They are the ultimate way to go. They inspire men to sacrifice themselves for abstractions beyond the selfish survival needs of their immediate tribe. They generally preach that all men have equal souls and an equal chance at some form of salvation. Instead of focusing on the traditions of ones immediate tribe, they approach religion with (allegedly) sacred texts, indoctrination, and mass persuasion that apply to everyone. Universalistic religions help restructure societies to be based more upon ideology than tribal loyalties. This can be a good thing from the vantage point of people who live in multi-racial, multi-ethnic urban centers who need a psychological formula to help them get along better with people of many different racial and ethnic backgrounds. Also, compared to a "natural religion" (see opposing statement) universal religions can be more flexible. Whereas natural religions often focus upon heroic tribal lore and spiritual interpretations of natural phenomenon, universal religions such as Christianity and Islam have leftist social revolutionary ideology embedded within them that can provide opportunities for political leaders to cut across racial, ethnic, and class boundaries in building mass political power bases, creating empires, or consolidating provinces under their control.
My guess is that most Americans who take this quiz will tend to agree with the environmental viewpoint. A major reason is that most Americans are Christians. Christianity is very evangelical in nature. The term "evangelical" is fairly synonymous with the terms "universalistic" and "egalitarian," all of which are leftist (or "environmental") in nature.
Conversely, most Americans have been exposed to either a combination of informational blackout and vilification regarding the alternative natural religion viewpoint. The term "natural religion" has some close associations with terms such as "tribal," "hereditary," "heathen," and "pagan," all of which tend to be rightist (or "genetic")
Many of the writings of Saint Paul and other disciples in the New Testament are unequivocally hostile towards paganism. Various pressure groups such as the Jewish ADL like to paint white tribal religion as being somehow "neo-Nazi."
Most Americans rarely stop to think how the pot is calling the kettle black when it comes to the ADL, to the extent that Judaism is one of the most tribal religions in existence. Worse yet, as patriotic Christians such as Rev Ted Pike and Elizabeth Dilling have observed in their writings, the Talmud encompasses the very worst form of tribalism in existence -- criminal tribalism.
I might also add that indigenous northern European tribal religions tended to decentralized and libertarian in flavor. In contrast, we associate Nazism -- like Zionism -- with a highly authoritarian political movement.
It is true that tribal religions tend to be vastly more conscious of the need to maintain the racial and cultural integrity of a society than universalistic religions, but as I have explained elsewhere, tribal societies that follow classical liberal principles are in fact the most productive and least dangerous societies over the long run. They can be the best neighbors of all for people of other nationalities, tribes, and races.
The problem for conservative Christians who reflexively hate indigenous white tribal religion and its symbols is that they risk throwing the baby out with the dirty bath water and becoming automatic leftists. Embedded in tribal religion is a reverence for ones indigenous culture, heritage, and ancestry. A reverence for these things is normally considered healthy in any society, even if no particular theology is attached to them. Conversely, a widespread symptom of social decay is a situation where people are cut off from their cultural and ancestral roots.
As an aside, I think that it is interesting to examine how this has been represented on a symbolic level.
During the period of romantic nationalist political movements in northern Europe in the late 19th century, various Germanic traditionalists started to use the Algiz rune (also known to Christians as a variation of the "fork cross") to symbolize "life," "birth," and "protection." On tombstones and obituaries, this symbol would be inserted by the date of birth. Conversely, they would show this symbol flipped upside down to mark the date of death. The inverted Algiz rune can be interpreted as a tree cut off from its roots and turned on its head, or a man who was striving upwards who has now been turned on his head in despair. Interestingly, the "death rune" is identical to what Christians call "the broken cross," which to some people has Satanic connotations. This symbol was adopted by the 1960's counter culture crowd as a pacifistic "peace" or "disarmament" symbol and promoted along with drug use, nihilistic rebellion, race mixing, and Marxism by America's Jewish supremacist-dominated national media.
The following is an extract from my environmental vs genetic discussion where I explain the natural religion concept in some detail and its relationship to a revealed religion such as Christianity:
"Natural" religion, law, and
An important concept in right wing political theory is the idea that
societies tend to function over the long haul within a certain band
of innate temperamental traits. These traits form an anchor point
regarding its customs and traditions, to include its "natural
law," and its "natural religion." Obviously something
as specific the names of particular deities or particular legal procedures
are cultural artifacts and are not specifically encoded in ones genes.
However, the general style or attitude of law, religion,
and folklore may very definitely reflect a genetically-based cultural
As one example, a legal system that consists of relatively simple
and logically consistent principles that apply to people across all
strata of society, and which is tries cases according to evidence,
facts, and logic, reflects a very different cultural personality and
innate mentality than, say, a Talmudic legal system that consists
of endless piles of convoluted and arbitrary regulations that can
be reinterpreted to ensnare virtually anyone displeasing to people
We can see innate mentalities at play in the character of various
world religions. As an example, in his classic work The
Religious Attitudes of the Indo-Europeans, Dr. Hans
Gunther discussed how ancient Nordic/Germanic peoples found spirituality
in an orderly Cosmos that one could approach through individual initiative
in a calm and logical manner. He contrasted this with certain exotic
Asian religions that emphasize finding spirituality before a disorderly
cosmos by achieving states of altered consciousness and spirit possession
induced by a shaman.
In the first case, religious themes involving logical consistency,
individual initiative, and mechanical understanding of the material
world may reflect genetic sculpturing under dispersed conditions in
a frost zone environment that put a premium upon innovation and technological
adaptiveness for survival. They may reflect an intuitive, internally
directed, independent, logic-driven personality.
In the second case, religious themes involving spirit possession,
distrust of reason, and emphasizing supernatural intervention may
reflect mentalities that have evolved from environments where genetic
survival depended on the ability to simultaneously ingratiate, deceive,
supplicate, and submit to human competitors within an authoritarian
environment. Psychologists often classify personalities oriented towards
immediate gratification and towards sensing how to administer the
right social strokes at the right moment in social situations as "externally
directed" and "reactive" personalities.
People who are at home with deception tend to have fractured personalities.
They may be attracted to monotheism as a focal point to help hold
together their fractured nature and keep their bad and often contradictory
instincts under control, somewhat analogous to the way many criminals
may require an authoritarian prison environment to avoid further mischief.
They may revel in creating endless religious rules and regulations
that give an appearance of authority and a sense of structure
and security. Simultaneously, being innately crooked, they also revel
in their ability to reinterpret and manipulate religious rules to
suit their selfish interests at will, much like the Pharisees in the
Genetic theory suggests that when a conqueror tries to impose an alien
religion, culture, or form of government on a society, over time this
society will tend to adapt these things to fit its indigenous personality.
As one example, Christianity became highly decentralized both in terms
of church government and by splintering into various denominations
among Nordic peoples following the Protestant Reformation, whereas
it remained relatively more authoritarian, centralized, and dogmatic
among Alpine and Mediterranean peoples elsewhere in Europe.
Therefore, wise long term statesmanship tries to work within the context
of a people's instinctive traits and cultural personality. If political
leaders try to socially reengineer people into some one-size-fits-all
creed, they risk creating major social stresses and dislocations.
In other words, since different societies have unique innate traits,
and different social and political institutions emanate from those
traits, there is no "one size fits all" religious or political
ideology that fits all societies.
It is fine for societies to borrow what they might admire from an
alien culture and adapt it to their own frame work, but it is predatory
for one group to impose its social and political institutions on another
group by force. This is one reason why the current neo-con agenda
to use the American military to impose "democracy" on Middle
Eastern countries is so unwise and inconsistent with early American
classical liberal principles.
Applying scientific principles to morality
Two landmark works that attempt to relate genetic principles to morality
and religion are A New Religion From Science: Beyondism (1972) and Beyondism, Religion From Science (1987) by Dr. Raymond Cattell. Basically these works take the viewpoint
that genetics comprise an underlying "profit" and "loss"
statement in human affairs. Just as a business must earn a profit
to survive and grow, so too must a society engage in eugenic practices
to remain strong and viable. Conversely, just as a business that runs
red ink for too long will go out of business, societies that engage
in net dysgenic practices for too long will inevitably fall by the
wayside or be taken over by others that maintain eugenic policies.
This is an iron law of nature, and nothing can change this.
Through Dr. Cattell's scientific lens we can look at various contemporary
philosophies in a different light. Take, for example the Playboy
Philosophy and radical feminism which devalue if not reject the
role of creating a stable marriage and having children. Modern industrialized
societies already suffer from a serious dysgenic problem where people
of lower intelligence tend to have more children than people of higher
intelligence. To the extent that these philosophies pour fuel on the
fire of these problems, they are negative. Perhaps "trial before
purchase" in dating can be a rational strategy if it does not
consume to much of ones prime child-bearing years and helps one find
a better long term mate, but permanent "trail before purchase"
with no children is clearly a parasite philosophy from the genetic
viewpoint, in which enjoyment of sexuality is completely stripped
away from its reproductive purpose.
In many respects Dr. Cattell performed in the late 20th century what
Friedrich Nietzsche tried to accomplish a century earlier. Nietzsche
tried to reconcile Darwinian theory with contemporary moral and ethical
systems and understand the differences. Dr. Cattell drew from more
recent findings in the social and natural sciences in an effort to
move at least a quantum step ahead of Nietzsche on a scientific level.
From a scientific viewpoint, "religion" is based upon subjective,
genetically-based feelings much like the sex drive, except it motivates
a somewhat different form of pro-social behavior. Whereas our genetically-based
predisposition towards eroticism motivates reproductive behavior,
our religious emotions motivate altruistic, mutually-supporting group
behavior and the will to live. In other words, tribes whose members
feel a strong genetically-based emotional predisposition toward religiosity
will be more likely to have members who are willing to put up with
the sacrifices involved in becoming good parents and making the self-sacrifices
necessary to engage in teamwork in time of war.
It should be obvious that tribes capable of teamwork will tend to
displace and spread their genes at the expense of other tribes who
cannot unite and cooperate in the face of encroachments. It should
also be obvious that since religiosity has a genetic basis, the character
of religious feeling can be altered through mutation and race-mixing.
Not surprisingly, many people who take the genetic approach tend to
gravitate towards tribal, indigenous ancestral religions that are
based upon longstanding traditions or the ancient "religious
common law" of their own people. Conversely, they tend to become
quickly disenchanted with "revealed" universalistic religions
that advocate a "one size fits all" plan for morality and
The "natural" religion concept
compared to a "revealed" religion
The "natural religion" concept is fairly
simple. Over time, a tribe will tend to accumulate folklore, to include
heroic tales that acquire mythic meanings with retelling over generations.
Part of their mythic meaning will interface with intuitive associations
that involve natural phenomenon and ultimately address questions of
ultimate meaning. For example it is a no-brainer in many cultures
that "winter" intuitively signifies "death" and
"spring" or the winter solstice signifies rebirth. Similarly,
the "moon" tends to have a feminine association because
lunar cycles resemble menstrual cycles, and the moon tends to be noticed
at night and hence has a more "romantic" or "dreamy"
An example of an intuitive approach that explains many primeval associations
in the Nordic tradition is Leaves
of Yggdrasil by Freya Aswynn, a former Wiccan who became
an Odinist. In contrast, Dr. Marvin Harris, an anthropologist at the
University of Florida, has used a functionalist approach to try to
explain the social logic behind the evolution of such religious practices
as sacred cows and witchcraft in his books Cannibals and
Kings and Cows, Pigs, Wars, and Witches.
Significantly, with a "natural religion" it is often easy
to remain an agnostic, atheist, pragmatist, rationalist, or scientist.
One does not need to take any of the folk mythology literally. One
can think of ones natural religion as "truth in poetry"
that helps to inform ones religious instincts. One might believe that
maintaining an ancestral folk mythology is healthy to support a sense
of group cohesion and continuity. It may be a least bad alternative
compared to embracing a dogmatic, intolerant, alien, universalistic
religion. For certain individuals who reject mainstream Christianity
and become agnostics or atheists, it may also be a better alternative
compared to embracing some form of social liberalism that betrays
the genetic interests of ones own people.
Many ancient Greek and Roman writers fit this model. They scrupulously
avoided any mention of supernatural intervention in their scientific,
historical, and political writings, yet were respectful of their own
people's religious mythologies. Many ancient Indo-European religionists
were also played down the development of complex theologies, taking
the attitude that there is enough natural joy and awe through living
in harmony with nature that there was no need to try to explain the
Chinese Confucianism is also another example of a natural religion,
because it evolved out of the ethos of a people. Interestingly enough,
it does not demand a belief in supernatural intervention. In North
America, we have also seen efforts by various tribes such as the Sioux
(or Lakota) to revitalize the Sun Dance and other indigenous religious
ceremonies in an effort to restore tribal cohesion and spirituality.
The Religious Attitudes of the Indo-Europeans by Dr. Hans Gunther argues that many early Americans such as Thomas
Jefferson embraced "natural religion" by becoming deists.
They only accepted an approach to religion fully consistent with natural
law. Dr. Gunther felt that Thomas Jefferson's religious views fit
the general pattern that characterized Greeks of the heroic era and
other ancient Indo-Europeans.
In contrast to a natural religion which emanates from the indigenous
religious "common law" and folk traditions of ones own people,
a "revealed" religion typically emanates from some guru
or messianic figure. This new revelation is frequently universalistic
in nature. Quite often it is attractive to people in multi-cultural
or urbanized societies who have become alienated from their tribal
and ancestral heritage and who need to frequently interact with alien
peoples on an economic level. In addition, "revealed" religions
often remove people from nature, much as they are removed in an urban
We need to bear in mind that when "revealed" religions start
adding intricate rituals, religious scriptures, a priest class, social
programs, a church bureaucracy, mandatory tithing, and other props
or practices that reinforce a sense of legitimacy, we begin to revisit
many of the same issues I discussed in my "top down" vs.
"bottom up" section. As church bureaucracies grow in size
and become more centralized, they begin to parallel the arrogance
and dysfunctionality of government bureaucracies.
"Revealed" religionists often feel that if only they can
just keep piling coercion, self-deception, and "appearances"
high enough, they may eventually create a self-reinforcing and self-sustaining
system of illusion, much like the way the pork politicians can ultimately
create a politically dominant position for themselves by continually
growing the props of government.
Religion as an important component of the
Religion and kinship ties can comprise vital
factors in the cause of preserving liberty. For example, Kevin Phillips
makes the case in The Cousins' Wars that
strongly held religious values played a key role in defining sides
in the English Civil War, American War of Independence, and even the
War Between the States. In a very serious political contest, religion
helps answer the question about who is willing to risk their lives
to prevail. All other things being equal, this is often the deciding
During the English Civil War, the side of Oliver Cromwell and the
Parliamentary forces was principally led and manned by Puritans from
eastern England. These people were heavily middle class in their values
and sensibilities. They came from a part of England that had seen
the initial Anglo-Saxon invasion and later saw the heaviest Norwegian
and Danish incursions during the Viking era. Hence, they were considered
the most Nordic/blond part of England. They comprised the ancestors
of most of the colonists who settled New England and later formed
the Minutemen who drove British Regulars off North Bridge at Concord
in 1775. One might say that at the inception of the American Revolution,
New England was a homogeneous de facto Nordic-Protestant ethnostate.
Today religion for white Americans is often more a source of confusion
than coherence. Most Americans today are influenced by extremely liberal
forms of Christianity that preach multi-racialism and multiculturalism. Christian Zionists even preach showing that one should show greater loyalty to Jews in
Israel than fellow Americans.
Many liberal Christian churches have also covered up pedophilia, which
hardly encourages white boys to grow up into responsible family men.
(Please note article "Cost
of Clergy Sex Abuse Now Exceeds $1.5 billion).
Many Christian churches have also espoused the "theology of liberation"
in support of Marxist guerillas in places like Latin America and Africa.
Many liberal Christian Churches supported the takeover by black Marxists
of South Africa and Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia). As a consequence,
in the former Rhodesia a black dictatorship has expropriated white
farmlands and has driven most whites out of the country. In South
Africa, white farmers are getting killed off as the black Marxist
government looks the other way. The South African economy is now experiencing
the same disintegration into a basket case that the former Rhodesia has experienced ahead
The demise of South Africa and the former Rhodesia under black rule
is part of a very long historical pattern, going back to the black
takeover of Haiti, and even earlier. This is documented in books such
as The French Revolution in Santo Domingo by Dr. Lothrop Stoddard and Black Rules White: A Journey
Across and About Hayti by Hesketh Prichard. In all cases,
the governments and economies involved have all deteriorated into
a much more primitive and savage state. We have also seen this here
in America in black-run cities such as Detroit and Washington, D.C.
Despite all of this, many liberal Christian Churches continue to support
illegal alien immigrants against white Americans within America's
borders. These Third World immigrants have physically replaced over
thirty million Americans in the last few decades and are sending welfare
costs through the roof. White Americans are already losing over 20%
of their population each generation with their below ZPG birth rate.
Massive Third World immigration only adds to this anti-white genocide.
Liberal Christian Churches add insult to this injury by encouraging
whites to yield to nonwhites everywhere and even support the invaders
with their tax dollars. By working against the genetic interests of
white Americans, many liberal Christian Churches for all intents and
purposes serve as enemy alien propagandists.
Admittedly there are some important complexities behind the scenes
involved in liberal Christian white racial treason. For example, an
article in the former Spotlight (now reincarnated
as The American Free Press) discussed how
the CIA and Mossad worked behind the scenes within the U.S. embassy
in South Africa to support the South African Communist Party and other
black entities hostile towards white rule, while sabotaging white
patriotic South Africans behind the scenes. There is even circumstantial
evidence that Zionist agents murdered Dr. H. F. Verwoerd who preached
an effective form of self-sufficient white nationalism, whereby whites
would create homogeneous white enclaves where white farmers and other
business owners would kick the bad habit of surrounding themselves
with nonwhite employees. We also know that America's Zionist-dominated
media and Jewish pressure groups worked hard to demonize white
South Africans and overturn white rule in both Rhodesia and South
Africa. They also got legislation through Congress to boycott South
This is part of a longstanding pattern where Jewish-controlled media
in both America and Europe have pushed hard ever since World War II
to promote open borders for white countries. They have also pushed
hard for white de-colonization and retreat from empire for European
powers everywhere in the Third World. We also know that at various
points in history, Zionists have both infiltrated and bought off parts
of both the Catholic Church and Protestant Churches. There is evidence
that they have even perverted translations of the Bible to foster
a pro-Zionist sentiment. As an example, please see Reverend Ted Pike's
Feb 28, 2006 interview with Daryl Bradford Smith about how Zionists perverted the Scofield
Bible, first published in 1909.
Because Christianity has a leftist, universalistic philosophical structure,
it is hard for many Christian leaders to take a stand against sophisticated
pressure groups trying to push them further to the left into multi-racialism
How Americans confuse the "right wing"
with fundamentalist Christianity and "leftism" with agnosticism
Just as most Americans seem to have serious problems distinguishing
between corrupt and traditional forms of Christianity, they have even
more problems distinguishing between traditional and highly corrupted
forms of paganism or natural religion. Most Americans are incapable
of distinguishing between an authentic ancestral folk religion that
preserves ethnic homogeneity and continuity on the one hand, and various
forms of selfish and permissive libertinism, leftist secular humanism,
or superstition on the other hand.
In fact, there once was an indigenous Indo-European religion held
by the ancestors of most whites, much like there was once a proto-Indo
European language that later branched out into Sanskrit, the Romance
Languages, the Slavic Languages, and the Germanic languages. Similarly,
the proto-Indo European religion branched out into Asatru in the north,
Druidism in the west, the early Greco-Roman religion in the south,
and early Hinduism in the south.
The Religious Attitudes of the Indo Europeans by Dr.
Hans F. K. Gunther is an important work that examines the philosophical
structure of these early religions. Dr. Gunther argued that the tendency
of Indo-Europeans to understand the world in a relatively rationalistic
manner, that is, to attune to "the [mathematical and orderly]
music of the spheres" does in itself constitute a religious impulse.
Hence, we should not confuse the philosophical structure of early
Indo-European religion with various New Age cults that might try to
make superstitious use of some of its symbols, to include runic lore.
Adding to religious confusion in America today, many Americans equate
the "right wing" in America with Christian fundamentalism,
and atheism with the radical left. This is very simplistic and misleading.
A substantial portion of America's intelligentsia, both on the left
and right, has found the Christian religion to be unbelievable ever
since the beginning of the Age of Enlightenment. This transformation
took place sometime between the arrival of Cromwellian Puritans in
New England to the formation of groups of Enlightenment Deists prior
to the American Revolution. This latter group placed the scientific
method, free inquiry, academic freedom, and separation between church
and state first before any fundamentalist Christian doctrines.
Of course Puritanism has not gone away either. It has simply been
born again in new Christian fundamentalist denominations, to include
virulent new Christian Zionist strains. In his March 21, 2006 Democracy
Kevin Phillips, author of American Theocracy claims that 45% of American Christians believe in Armageddon.
Some other works that highlight the grip that Christian Zionists have
on Americans include Sydney Schanberg's Village Voice articles "The
Widening Crusade" and "Turning
Point: George Bush's Holy War Threatens Our Presidency -and Perhaps
the Future of Our Nation," Sydney Blumenthal's Guardian article
Religious Warrior of Abu Ghraib" about General Boykin, and
Dr. David Duke's article "Woman
Evangelist Says She is More Loyal to the Israeli State than to America."
These kinds of groups can become so overshadowing in national media
that I think it is important to spend some time explaining how there
exist substantial numbers of hard core American nationalists who have
a totally different religious world view. This world view is more
in line with the natural religion concept and the genetic world view.
Any Christians out to "save America" today through evangelistic
strong arm methods are more likely to antagonize and create resentment
among these kinds of thinking individuals than accomplish any real
public good. It behooves any Christians interested in creating a common
patriotic front to understand how these fellow nationalists think.
A good starting point is America's own Tom Paine, author of Common
Sense that helped ignite the American Revolution. He
explained his reasons for disenchantment with Christianity in The
Age of Reason. Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin
were two other well known nationalists of this era who were also agnostics/deists.
They were familiar with the works of Voltaire and other European Enlightenment
free thinkers. They also had some of their own heretical ideas. As
one prime example, Thomas Jefferson went through the four gospels,
stripped out all the supernatural events, and then consolidated the
stories into The Jefferson Bible. A thorough
rationalist and deist, Jefferson felt that the supernatural tales
obfuscated the true teachings of Christ. After clearing away this
obfuscation, he was able to find some ethical teachings that he could
Criticism of Christianity by nationalist thinkers moved forward a
quantum leap with the advent of Darwinism in the mid-1800's and the
Scopes Monkey Trial in Dayton, Tennessee in the 1920's. Higher Criticism
theology, combined with research into antiquities and archeology,
picked the Bible apart further. Two good examples from this era are The Bible Handbook: For Freethinkers and Inquiring Christians by G. W. Foote and W. P. Ball published in 1900, which lists contradictions
and absurdities in the Bible, and Ingersollia: Gems of
Thought from the Lecture, Speeches, and Conversations of Col. Robert
G. Ingersoll, published in 1882. A preface to a compilation
of Col Ingersoll's lectures describes his views and values as "those
of the Agnostic school of thought as exemplified by Hume and Kent
with a mingling of the philosophy Berkley...Col. Ingersoll departed
this life with the same convictions that he held all through his career,
both as soldier and citizen, a true patriot, a lover of home, mourned
by all who knew him..."
Speaking of the late 1800's, we cannot overlook the publication of
Friedrich Nietzsche's The Anti-Christ in 1892. This helped to advance a philosophically anti-Christian strain
of nationalism. When Nietzsche compared Darwinism with Christianity,
he concluded that Christian philosophy is so leftist and universalistic
that it does more harm than good to society by inverting or transvaluating
healthy instinctive values. He believed that the ancient pagan Greek
religion comprised a much more natural and healthy religion for society.
He charged that Saul of Tarsus (the Apostle Paul) deliberately spread
Christianity throughout the Roman Empire in order to turn it on its
head. Nietzsche believed that Saul may have sought revenge for the
Roman destruction of Jerusalem during the Jewish War. Later a Jewish
writer, Eli Ravage, embellished Nietzsche's theory with his articles
Real Case Against the Jews" and "Commissary
to the Gentiles" published in the January and February
1928 issues of The Century Magazine respectively.
Nietzsche was certainly not unknown among American nationalists. H. L.
Mencken, a guiding light of the American Old Right in the early 20th
century, translated Nietzsche and published The Philosophy
of Friedrich Nietzsche in 1908. Simmering in the background,
we also see works such as Which
Way Western Man? by the former American
Christian minister William Gayley Simpson who continued Nietzsche's
frontal assault on Christianity. Equally scathing works were produced by the late Dr. Revilo P. Oliver, a professor of classics
and former co-founder of the John Birch Society. Last, but not least,
one must also mention the brilliant works of the late Dr. William
Pierce, a former physicist, who founded the Cosmotheist
A number of writers and historians have claimed that the leftist,
mystical aspects of Christianity has gone so far as to weaken converted
populations. They challenge the assertion made by many Christian conservatives
in America today that American institutions and morality are ultimately
based on "Judeo-Christianity." They believe that the reality
has actually been more of the reverse.
This is especially true given that the term "Judeo-Christianity"
is itself a highly suspect intellectual construct. The "Judeo"
part of this phrase gives Zionists a psychological leverage point
in their efforts to high-jack Christian Americans to blindly support
Let us start with some famous writers who have made cultural arguments
without necessarily implying a genetic change. Nicolo Machiavelli
wrote that pagan Romans of the early Roman Republican period were
more hardy and virtuous than the Christian version that came later.
Salvian the Priest saw more virtue among pagan northern European barbarians
than among his fellow Christianized Romans. Edward Gibbon stated in The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire that Christianity weakened Rome before outside invaders. James Michener
observed in Rascals in Paradise that blackbirders
(slavers) of the Pacific in the 19th century usually picked on Christianized
native populations first, because they tended to put up less resistance
and became more docile slaves than pagans. According to a number of
writers, Christianity had to transition from being a mystical, universalistic
religion into a militant, nationalist ideology before Spanish Christians
could stand up to Moorish invaders, Russian Christians could withstand
the Mongols, and Balkan Christians would successfully resist the Turks.
One example of an American right winger who has openly charged Christianity
with causing genetic damage is the aforementioned late Dr.
Revilo Oliver, who discussed Christian
homosexuality, the dysgenic
effects of the Crusades, and the negative effects of Christian
celibacy among priests.
Today one can find even more intellectual body blows to Christian
dogma, if only one knows where to look. For example, a number of major
Christian churches sponsored a "Jesus
seminar" of leading scholars in the early 1990's who concluded
that at least 80% of the Gospels is fiction. In addition, American
free thinkers have become even more aggressive, such as American
Atheist leader Madelyn Murray O'Hair who planned to write a book
before her untimely death demonstrating that the story of Christ is
total fiction. Last, but not least, additional archeological evidence
and scholarship now challenge the historicity of major segments of
the Old Testament, to include the stay of Israelites in Egypt, the
Kingdom of David, and the Book of Esther.
In fact, one begins to wonder after reading Asimov's
Guide to the Bible and Philip R. Davies' In
Search of Ancient Israel whether ancient Jews were ever anything other than a highly organized, urbanized, quasi-underworld,
and professional minority whose real center of gravity lay in Babylonia,
not Palestine. One might also wonder if they ever departed from a
pattern of creating satellite syndicate operations to dominate Middle
Eastern water holes and various urbanized areas of the ancient world.
The Biblical stories suggesting glorious and self-sufficient kingdoms
in Palestine, a servile tenure in Egypt, and various bucolic and pastoral
settings are so contrary to this other pattern, to include even the
psychological pattern of the Babylonian Talmud, that one might wonder
if much of the Old Testament was deliberately created as disinformation. The Israeli dissident writer Uri Avnery wrote in "Israel's Provocations: The Method in the Madness" that:
. . .most Israeli archaeologists have always been the loyal foot-soldiers of the official propaganda. Since the emergence of modern Zionism, they have been engaged in a desperate endeavor to "find" archaeological evidence for the historical truth of the stories of the Old Testament. Until now, they have gone empty-handed: there exists no archaeological proof for the exodus from Egypt, the conquest of Canaan, and the kingdoms of Saul, David, and Solomon. But in their eagerness to prove the unprovable (because in the opinion of the vast majority of archaeologists and historians outside Israel – and also some in Israel – the Old Testament stories are but sacred myths), the archaeologists have destroyed many strata of other periods.
Even the site of the Dome of the Rock Mosque that many Zionists would
like to level in order to make way for the Third Temple is subject
to doubt. Unfortunately the Dome of Rock happens to be the third holiest
shrine in Islam, and destroying it to make way for more Zionist real
estate development is likely to spill even more rivers of blood in
the Middle East — and cost ever more American treasure to support their schemes.
John Tiffany wrote The Myth of the Wailing Wall for the March/April
2006 issue of the Barnes Review:
Neither the Dome of the Rock near the center
of the Haram esh-Sharif in Jerusalem, nor the Al Aqsa Mosque occupying
the southern side of the Haram (nor any area within the four walls
of that haram, or sanctuary) was, in reality, the true spot in Jerusalem
where the historic temples of ancient Israel were located. Biblical
and literary accounts dogmatically place the site of tall the temples
over the Gihon Spring just north of the ancient City of David (Zion)
and on the southeastern ridge of Jerusalem. All the present antagonists
fighting in Jerusalem over the "temple site" (who are
out to turn their bombs and guns into plowshares) are warring over
(and for) the wrong place.
Some Christian reactions
I must point out that not all American Christians support Zionist
schemes to destroy Muslim holy sites. Nor do they necessarily support
Jewish media propaganda in favor of nonwhite Marxist guerillas, open
borders, pedophiles, or Zionist Christians.
One good example is Dr. David Duke, who offers some Christian common
sense to offset Zionist madness. In his landmark work My
Awakening, Dr. Duke explains why his Christian beliefs are
completely compatible with white racial nationalism. He feels that the Bible has been misinterpreted
and perverted to suit an alien, anti-American, Jewish supremacist
agenda. He also explains why he does not view himself as white supremacist,
but rather as someone who supports self-determination for all peoples
around the world. He also explains why he respects the indigenous
Indo-European religions of Europeans as well as the indigenous religions
of other peoples. A chapter in his book even covers the vital contribution
to science, culture, ethics, and religious philosophy made by pagan
Greeks of the pre-Christian heroic and classical eras.
Another good example of a real American and a genuinely patriotic
Christian nationalist is the Reverend Ted Pike, archived with America First Books. Here, as well as at his own web site truthtellers.org, he identifies Zionist neo-con warmongers and war criminals
who are waging a determined domestic campaign to strip Americans of
their civil liberties.
Last, but not least, Col Donn de Grand Pre is a Christian who has
written an excellent series consisting of The Vipers Venom and The Rattler's Revenge (incorporating
an earlier work Barbarians Inside the Gates).
These books expose international Zionism and provide a hard-headed
assessment of America's real enemies as well as a good overview regarding
how we got into the mess we face today. In fact, this series received
praise from Michael Collins Piper in a book review he wrote for the American Free Press.
Reconciling Christianity and the Natural
I personally hold to the view that "the more things change,
the more they stay the same," consistent with a conservative,
genetically-oriented viewpoint. Furthermore, all religious and political
ideologies can be perverted and corrupted. Indeed, there exist perverted
and corrupt forms of paganism just like there exist perverted and
corrupted forms of Christianity. I believe strongly that Christians
and natural religion adherents should keep open minds and learn from
the best that each side has to offer rather than scream and throw
knives at each other. This is particularly important as we try to
find a spiritual path that aids the survival of America's declining
white population rather than one that remains the dupe of international
I believe strongly that the very sublime and dignified services held
in many Protestant and Catholic Churches are time-tested role models
worthy of emulation. If I were to try to revitalize a natural religious
approach, I would try to keep everything just about the same in terms
of the general style and structure of the religious services currently
used by Christians, and merely make some changes in the symbols.
We would, however, definitely change the content of the sermons. For
starters, no more of this hand-wringing white guilt, white self-hatred,
Zionist bootlick stuff going on in my natural religion church!
Incidentally, such an approach just might serve some liberal Christian
churches just right. There is considerable evidence that the early
Christian churches in Europe played the same game in reverse in terms
the clever way they co-opted prevailing pagan customs and services.
Many of our current traditions such as All Saints Day (Halloween),
Christmas, and Easter have some strong pagan roots.
What I would definitely discourage are "Hollywood pagan"
approaches that are deliberately intended to be "far out,"
"shocking," or a license to be outrageous. There are certain
self-styled, so-called pagan groups that use "religious services"
as an excuse to throw hippie costume or toga parties, revitalize superstitious
spell-casting or fortune-telling activities, engage in promiscuous
orgies, drunkenness, and public nudity, or indulge in other practices
which leave most conservative American family people stone cold. Like
I said, paganism can be perverted by selfish, immature, exhibitionist,
or criminal people to have some very degenerate, if not evil forms
just like Christianity. However, just because some folks abuse paganism
does not mean that all pagans are part of some kind of global Satanic
conspiracy in service of a Luciferian Anti-Christ.
To put things in better perspective, I believe that the every day
behavior of many ancient pagan Greeks of the heroic era and pagan
Norseman up through the Viking era was really not very much different
than the Puritans, Calvinists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, or other
American Christians on the frontier who came later. In fact, in terms
of their basic values and philosophical structure, to include the
emphasis on valor, exploration, self-improvement, self-restraint,
and individual responsibility, the ancient Greek epics and old Norse
sagas are very similar to American pioneer and cowboy stories. This
should not be a big surprise, since racially they were essentially
the same people.
I would also like to observe that white Americans can find more than
enough spiritual causes on American soil worthy of their energies
without having to go overseas to destroy mosques and genocide Arabs
and do other nasty things for Israel and Big Oil. Let me provide a
In 1997 Stephen McNallen, head of the Asatru Folk Assembly based in
Nevada City, CA, sued the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. (Incidentally,
I signed the paperwork for his group at Federal Court in Portland,
Oregon). He claimed that there was strong evidence that 9,000 year
old bones found along the banks of the Columbia River near Kennewick,
Washington were of European origin. Hence, indigenous Indo-European
religious rites would be more appropriate to perform over the remains
than, say, native American religious rites.
The American Asatruar were concerned that certain Native Americans
were trying to misuse the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation
Act to take exclusive custody of the bones, bury them, and thereby
prevent scientists from studying them. These Indians may have been
concerned that the existence of whites in North American 9,000 years
ago might upset political correctness interpretations of their special
victimhood status. In fact, Paiute Indian legends tell about tall,
reddish-haired, white skinned people who their ancestors wiped out
long ago. Among other things, physical evidence of ancient anti-white
genocide might undermine the white guilt that entitles Indian tribes
to continue benefiting from lucrative gambling franchise privileges
which in turn enables them to make cash contributions to whatever
political party is in power that controls the Army Corps of Engineers.
The Army Corps of Engineers went to outrageous lengths to pander to
the Indians by bulldozing over the Kennewick Man site along the Columbia
River. It also looked the other way when visiting Indian groups pilfered
portions of the Kennewick Man skeleton. In contrast to these twisted
politics, American Asatruar simply wanted to allow scientists full
access to study the bones. They also demanded that Army Corps of Engineers
show some basic consideration for their indigenous Indo-European religious
and cultural concerns.
We see in religion a very similar long term theme that we also see in politics. Over the long run, it is more the men who make the system than the system that makes the men. Furthermore, "the more things change, the more they stay the same." In many respects the peoples of the north could afford to be pagan, because their ancestors had survived a rigorous evolutionary process in frost zone environments that tended to favor individuals with a rationalistic mind set and good character. This helps to explain the famous quotation from Salvian the Christian Priest from around 440 AD who found the invading Germanic barbarians to be vastly morally superior to his fellow Christian Romans.
In what respects can our customs be preferred to those of the Goths and Vandals, or even compared with them? And first, to speak of affection and mutual charity (which, our Lord teaches, is the chief virtue, saying, "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another "), almost all barbarians, at least those who are of one race and kin, love each other, while the Romans persecute each other. For what citizen does not envy his fellow citizen ? What citizen shows to his neighbor full charity?
[The Romans oppress each other with exactions] nay, not each other : it would be quite tolerable, if each suffered what he inflicted. It is worse than that ; for the many are oppressed by the few, who regard public exactions as their own peculiar right, who carry on private traffic under tile guise of collecting the taxes. And this is done not only by nobles, but by men of lowest rank; not by judges only, but by judges' subordinates. For where is the city even the town or village which has not as many tyrants as it has curials ? . . . What place is there, therefore, as I have said, where the substance of widows and orphans, nay even of the saints, is not devoured by the chief citizens? . . .
None but the great is secure from the devastations of these plundering brigands, except those who are themselves robbers.
[Nay, the state has fallen upon such evil days that a man cannot be safe unless he is wicked] Even those in a position to protest against the iniquity which they see about them dare not speak lest they make matters worse than before. So the poor are despoiled, the widows sigh, the orphans are oppressed, until many of them, born of families not obscure, and liberally educated, flee to our enemies that they may no longer suffer the oppression of public persecution. They doubtless seek Roman humanity among the barbarians, because they cannot bear barbarian inhumanity among the Romans. And although they differ from the people to Whom they flee in manner and in language; although they are unlike as regards the fetid odor of the barbarians' bodies and garments, yet they would rather endure a foreign civilization among the barbarians than cruel injustice among the Romans.
:Let us compare these hardy barbarians with supposedly refined Pharisees who allegedly benefited from a long evolutionary history in the racially mixed urban sprawl Babylonia. If environmental theory is correct, and genetics plays no role in religion, we would expect these men to be among the wisest religious leaders on the planet. Instead, we find the exact opposite. We find them to being castigated as the worst degenerates and hypocrites. In fact, I have already characterized their depravity in my commentary for question 17, which I will repeat below:
Loop holes in the Talmud permit all kinds of amazing perversions. Please see Rev Ted Pike's analysis of the corruption in the Talmud in the Rev Ted Pike archive. Some examples include the articles: "Pedophilia: The Talmud's Dirty Secret," "Talmud: Wellspring of Jewish Pornography Industry," and "Have You Read the Talmud Lately?" He feels that an important mission of Jesus was to try to help the Jews clean all this up. If we are to accept Bible stories as actual history, then instead of feeling grateful, the Pharisees framed and murdered this innocent man and then continued with their evil ways.
Please consider other analyses of the Talmud, for example the online work The
Jewish Religion, Its Influence Today by Elizabeth Dilling. In her first chapter she commented "... the Talmud reverses every one of the Ten Commandments, the teachings of Moses and the Prophets, and enshrines their opposites under a `whited sepulcher' which is a disguise for murder and `all uncleanness,' as Christ charged. Murder of non-Pharisees is always permitted; theft, sodomy, incest, rape are all permitted. For example, the righteousness of grown men violating baby girls under three is a favorite topic for discussion in book after book of the Talmud."
Please also see the Talmud Unmasked written in 1892 by Father I. B.
Pranaitis. These types of works might help you understand why Martin Luther, the founder of the Protestant movement, experienced a remarkable change in his attitude towards Jews after he first read the Talmud. He latter penned On The Jews and Their Lies.
I take a more secular viewpoint. In my analysis of Jewish criminal totalitarian psychopathology in my mutualism vs. parasitism article, I discuss how the Jews evolved as a highly urbanized people in very focused occupations that reward trickery over the past several thousand years. Perhaps as much as 40% of the Jewish population could be genetically psychopathic. Their convoluted and nasty legal traditions seem to mirror this underlying social reality. There is a vicious and mafia-gangster quality to Jewish behavior that is alien to northern European traditions that esteem chivalrous conduct and individualism.
It bears repeating that while not all Jews are bad, the Jewish culture seems to be so heavily geared towards deception, low cunning, and the selfish exploitation of out-groups that the worst Jews do not infrequently rise to the top. Perhaps it is no great surprise that Jews have led organized crime in America as well as political mass murder in Russia. They have run exploitive industries such as ante-bellum black slavery, contemporary international white slavery, liquor, anti-white propagandistic entertainment, and pornography.
As a last comment in this section, the book The Christ Conspiracy:The Greatest Story Ever Sold by Acharya S. makes the point that so many pagan elements have been absorbed in the creation of Christianity that trying to make a sharp dichotomy between "Christianity" and "paganism" is in fact very misleading. She believes that instead, Christianity may be better characterized as an imperial, universalistic religion that contrasted with tribal, rural natural religion. It provided an ideological formula that helped delay the Roman Empire during its declining period from having its multi-racial, multi-cultural society fission apart. However, this ended up happening any way.
Seen from this perspective, the New Testament is in many ways two books in one. On the one hand, you have Jesus Christ acting heroically against the corruption of the Pharisees, telling them that they are of their father the devil, and that they resemble a resplendent sepulchre, white on the outside and full of filth on the outside. That would almost sound like an indictment of the corruption of Rome made by a naturally honorable Germanic barbarian with good basic instincts who follows a natural religion, similar to what Salvian the Priest talked about. At the same time, we see a Jew named Saul of Tarsus (renamed Saint Paul) repeatedly sneer at the wisdom of the Greeks and other pagan greats in the face of superior Jewish wisdom. Interestingly enough, unlike the Greeks who developed a coherent theory of science, republicanism, and democracy in the 4th to 6th centuries B.C., the Jews never developed anything that remotely compares with all of this on an intellectual level.
In my mutualism vs parasitism article, I compare and contrast what I regard as a "productive" religion compared to a "parasite" or "criminal" religion or morality system. If we selectively edit the New Testament, much like Thomas Jefferson did with his Jefferson Bible, we can see how the basic message of Christ would make him appear to be more on the "producer" side of the equation, whereas the convoluted and Talmudic religion of the Pharisees who framed and murdered him appears to be more on the "parasite" (or criminal) side.
