Atheism and Prepping
I been steering away from politics and religion posts the last few months. Not so much because I care if I piss people off but because I think we have definitely reached the point of no return in all of those areas and the one's that connect to them like Feminism etc.. I doubt very much there is any turning the tide now by voting or attempting to re-establish morality on a social level. About the only thing Christian preppers can do now is withdraw as much as possible and ride this train wreck to it's end while doing everything possible to keep the light shining on a local level or be a beacon when the whole house of cards falls apart.
What I still find amazing is how many of these atheist and pagan types attempt to worm their way into the circle of prepping and sustaining blogs. None of them do a very good job from my observations as none of them are really even attempting to live the life. Almost all of them are obvious Statist worshipers.
I did a little jaunt around clicking on random links last night and noticed that every atheist blog that has attempted to worm it's way into the prepping or patriot III community over the years that was bashing Easter had a few common attributes.
They were all on the public welfare dole. Either sponging early retirement funds off public pensions or milking disabilities that they more than likely caused themselves from abusive living but somehow managed to hand the bill over to the public. I especially liked the one that was bashing organized religion and wealth accumulation why they soak up public funds given to them by one of the largest wealth accumulator and redistribution organizations that has ever lived.
These sites may pay a bit of homage every now and again to sustainable living by planting a Tomato in a pot and taking a picture of it but for the most part they talk about themselves, their knick knacks and randomly complain about how other people should pay more taxes or generally do something like die to make their lives easier by creating shorter lines at the government medical center.
Not that I am overly religious myself but can any of you imagine a post collapse world filled with atheist and pagans? No baseline morality shared across a community, no single belief system that may have some variance but still upholds to a central common theme. Hypocrisy running dominate as each is only out to get for themselves with little regard for others or the future. Since atheist also seem to come from the government sector they will all be "Here to help" as long as you can assure them a pension for the rest of their lives. Everything will be public property to be redistributed how they see fit and to whom after they take their cut of course.
No private property, no rights to speak of as everyone must pay their fair share. Everyone but them that is. Charity will be mandatory but again for whom and how they decide.
One caveat I might add is I know there are a few blogs that do not call themselves Christian but pretty much live by Christian morality. Whatever one might think of them I must admit you don't see them going around bashing Easter or other Christian celebrations.
Personally I just don't see how a lack of belief in Christ is compatible with Prepping, community and sustainable living. I have tried to keep an open mind about such things but I just cannot connect the dots. I am not saying we must all live the lives of the plain people but it seems to me that the base belief in the morality of Christianity is as much a corner stone of prepping as gardening and producing is.
I noticed today that a couple of the sites have taken down their anti-Easter rants. Perhaps the rest of the online prepper community agrees with my point of view.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
