Metaphysics and the Long Con
In this stream I take part in the open panel discussion on metaphysics hosted by Dr Kevin McCairn the systems neuroscientist. This is a stream that is nearly seven hours long (7:04). In the first section Dr Kevin McCairn streams with Davey Crocko on the “Real Science Behind the Venom Grift” and that section ends with Kevin tuning into the debate (starts https://youtu.be/itTRFLQn4jc?t=6468) between Adam Green and E. Michael Jones, Ph.D. hosted on #Killstream Saturday Night: Adam Green vs E. Michael Jones (odysee.com)
Adam Green (from Know More News) is regarded as a far-right anti-Semite because he has brought valid criticism against the Talmud and Christian-Zionism. However, Adam Green has developed his “theology” even further (under the tutelage of Christopher Jon Bjerknes) to the point where he understands all of Christianity as part of a Jewish Conspiracy which I have named the Long Con.
Definition: The Long Con (plural long cons) A scam in which the scammer takes a long period of time (usually weeks, months or longer) to defraud the victim, by first slowly gaining their trust.
This stretches the credibility of Green as he relies on Bjerknes to provide the academic ammunition for his hypothesis. This is a problem because Bjerknes is adept at conflating different mythologies, ignoring historical evidence and practicing deeply flawed hermeneutics which I have debunked in the past.  That said, many of Green’s (and CJB’s) criticism regarding Talmudic Judaism and Christian-Zionism are valid. It is just a pity that it had to be leveraged to extremis.
On the other hand, E. Michael Jones is a Catholic writer who seeks to defend traditional Catholic teachings and stop the damage that he believes Jews are inflicting on the Catholic Church and western civilization. He is also seen as an antisemite by the ADL (who isn’t?). Although E. Michael Jones makes valid points (about the Logos etc) he is also constrained by his dogma (incarnation rather than manifestation) and the circularity of his primal causation worldview and his understanding of the exclusivity of the Catholic Church as the only means of salvation which carries echoes the Jewish claims of superiority. This should not surprise us as the Roman Church was penetrated by Jewish converts. 
So, Dr Kevin McCairn is justified in his criticism of both viewpoints and his critique of Armageddon fetishism is also valid. All the Abrahamic religions (this includes Islam) expect that catastrophic events will usher in a new world. This plays into the hands of those who would use violence to usher in the new world order. It was ever thus:
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force (Matt 11:12).
They attempted a violent imposition of the “kingdom of heaven” in the first and second centuries with appearance of false Messiah’s and each time it ended in disaster.  They have therefore established a pattern of behaviour. The nation became unclean, demon possessed like legion and was therefore sent into exile like the scapegoat.  The story of the demon possessed man in the synoptic Gospels is an acted parable that depicts how the Jews constantly fall into delusional madness  in their attempt to impose order on chaos and take up the position that they see as rightfully theirs.
Did an elite class (priests?) possess knowledge of the timing and frequency of such cataclysms which they could then use to their advantage? Many ancient civilizations had an awareness of cyclical disasters at regular intervals, and it is certainly possible that such knowledge was passed down the generations and that it would confer an advantage when transitioning into a “new age”. It is also true that survival strategy encouraged in-group preference and saw Jewish power exercised at the top level of every civilization (Egypt, Babylon, Persia etc) as the Bible stories recount and there is no reason to doubt this as we see the same today.
Is it possible that Christianity itself is a Jewish ploy designed to confuse and disinherit the Gentiles (the long con)? This seems hardly plausible as the Old Testament depicts the Jews in a very unflattering manner. They are not portrayed as a master race and their progenitor Jacob (later renamed Israel) is depicted as a deceiver and a cheat (see the character in Uncut Gems). The fact that Christianity is hated with a vengeance and undermined by the Jews (cf. the Bolsheviks) mitigates against the thesis that it is “a Jewish ploy”.
One way or another the Jews are trying to implement their vision of the kingdom of God whether that is through the Chabad Noahide Tikkun Olam concept or New Age (theosophic/luciferian)  theology with the added twist of transhumanism where man himself transcends his own humanity with the help of Artificial Intelligence. In other words, it is the original sin of wanting to become God. The “temptation” of the serpent that man can acquire knowledge and eternal life and become God through his own effort. This is reflected in the current drive towards coupling Artificial Intelligence with Human consciousness which is nothing other than the ultimate mind of the flesh. 
While it is true that scripture depicts humans as “gods” (elohim) made in the “image” that does not mean equivalence with God. This is reflected in a Psalm that can be contextualized in the Hezekiah era where the “gods” are the Sanhedrin judges:
I have said, Ye are gods (elohim); and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men (adam) and fall like one of the princes. Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations (Ps 82: 6-8) 
The attempt to “become gods” is the sui generis and sui causa of the mythos presented in Eden. That we can control our destiny through an act of self-determination if only we have enough knowledge. However, that knowledge only brings fear because we realize that without God, we are naked and vulnerable. We are mortal, fallen creatures that carry the seeds of our own destruction living in a Universe that seems to inflict random chaos and pain on all our attempts to order our existence.
The critique that we are viewing everything through a Jewish lens is a valid one because we do. When Jesus spoke to the Samaritan woman he indicated that salvation comes via the Jews (John 4:4) but also said that God must be worshiped in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24) although the Pharisees had all the correct doctrines, yet they were deficient (Matt 23:3) and so it is with many Christians who profess to be doing the will of God (Matt 7:22-23).
Our culture can be considered Judeo-Christian, at least in the West but the influence of that culture is felt globally (even in the East non-Christian countries) through science and media. The Age or Reason was an attempt to break free of religion and to be solely guided by scientific rationality. How has that worked out? We face the nightmare of neo- Malthusianism and the death of freewill in subservience to the collective. We will become slaves to our own technology. The machines are taking over Skynet has become self–aware. Is eschatology becoming self-fulfilling? To some extent it is.
However, I believe that they will lose complete control. Kevin refers to this as passively waiting for them to “drop the ball” or “fumble the pass” (a good analogy) and laments that many Christians are using it as an excuse to sit on their hands and do nothing except “turn the other cheek”. That is a fair criticism because I do believe that the Christian response has been passive, weak and completely missing. We should be fighting and witnessing. By fighting I mean that we are engaged in a spiritual war (Eph 6:12), a psychological conflict and we need to “armor up” (Eph 6:13) and witness to the truth without fear or favor. We should not comply and refuse to worship the golden image of the beast (Dan 3:18). In this case the gold A.I. quantum computers that represent human reasoning and the running amok of science that seeks to dethrone God from his place as creator and sustainer of all life.
No man is good
The lesson must be learnt that no man is good (Luke 18:19). We are all fallen creatures and no man can come to God unless he is drawn by him (John 6:44). It is God who sets the terms and God who chooses. It is the prerogative of the creator to make one vessel to honor and another to dishonor (Rom 9:21). God answers to no one nor should he. He creates and he destroys. As the end is known from the beginning who are we to demand answers or justification?
True Christianity is the only belief that teaches that you cannot save yourself. All other religions and philosophies teach that enlightenment and redemption can be achieved through an exercise of will or self-actualization. We can transform ourselves. True religion says the opposite. The Jews believed that the messiah would come in a time when he is most needed (because the world is so sinful), or in a time when he is most deserved (because the world is so good). The Sabbatian and Frankists reasoned that as the world can never be fully righteous the only way to achieve salvation is to make it fully evil. The nihilistic Sabbatian and Frankist movements rejected all norms and advocated the “redemption through sin” including sexual rituals and sacred orgies with incest. In their inversion Sin became holy and it was necessary to unmake creation because the material world (compare Gnosticism) is evil. The “true God” could allegedly be revealed only through a destruction of the social and religious structures created by the “false God,” thus leading to a thorough antinomianism. This is of course insane and probably formed the basis of Satanism such as advocated by Aleister Crowley with the only law being “Do what thou wilt” a recipe for complete societal breakdown. This is what happens when we completely reject God.
All I see around me is the hubris and arrogance of man. Even as all our paradigms and science fail the test of time we still self-congratulate and narcissistically revel in our greatness like Nebuchadnezzar boasting of his glory before he was turned into a beast (Dan 4:30-32). And that is how God regards our effort at self-deification. It has become (like all human Empires) a devouring beast.
Our models of the Universe are all wanting whether that is large scale (dark matter) or small scale (quantum mechanics) only tell part of the story. The truth is that ‘in him we live and move and have our being’ (Acts 17:28) our universe is like a complex brain and ultimately our consciousness is derivative. We need to be humble in the presence of such awesomeness. A billion, billion galaxies and our lives are just the blink of an eye.

 The founder of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola, was a converso, (convert) and so was his successor Diego Lainex. The futurist interpretation of the Apocalypse was written by Jesuit-Jew Ribera thus drawing attention away from any partial first and second century fulfillment that would have a negative impact on the Jews and any interpretation that would involve identifying the church with the harlot or the beast. This covered all bases and pushed the Apocalypse somewhere into the distant future neutralising it as an instrument of criticism. See Jews and Jesuits and St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Jews
 Simon bar Giora the Idumean (69-70 CE) whose coins bore the legend “Redemption of Zion”, indicating that there was a religious aspect to Simon’s bid for power. This does not prove that he was considered the Messiah, but it is likely. The fact that he wore a royal robe in the Temple is another indication. Simon bar Kokhba, born Simon ben Koseva, (d. 135 AD) who lead the Bar Kokhba revolt against the Roman Empire.
 There are many intertextual links between the healing of Legion and the witnessing in Revelation 11. The apostle Paul also links Romans 11 with Revelation 11 which strongly suggests that the Apocalypse was already in circulation before Romans was written (therefore dating the Apocalypse early before 70). Take special note of the use of the word torment in Luke 8:28 and Rev 11:10 “and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another” which is a characteristic of the Jewish feast of Purim. The two witnesses (prophets) are therefore regarded as enemies by the Jews and murdered. They are raised (vindicated) after three-and-a -half days reminiscent of the resurrection of Jesus.
 See the use of Psalm 82 by Christ when talking to the Sanhedrin: Psalm 82 in the Fourth Gospel The historical context of the Psalm is the Hezekiah period contemporary with the prophet Isaiah. The Psalm is a condemnation of the Judges (the seventy or Sanhedrin) otherwise known as the Elohim (gods). Men and rulers referred to as God: Exodus 7:1; 21:6; 22:8,9,28; 23:20,21; Psalms 58:1(?); 97:7; 138:11; 1 Samuel 2:25; 28:13. Psalm 82 (Booker/HAW) and in the commentary on Isaiah (HAW): [p.123] Here God is represented as being busy judging the judges. Those who should have been setting the tone of public life in the nation, themselves needed remonstration, denunciation and discipline. Psalm 82 is marvellously like this passage in phraseology and idea and may well be an Isaiah psalm appropriate to this very time (a Psalm of Asaph because handed over to the Asaph choir in the temple). [p. 259] Psalm 82 is demonstrably another psalm of the reign of Hezekiah, and there verse 7, otherwise rather bewildering, is a clear allusion to Shebna: “Ye shall fall like one of the princes,” that is, the demotion he has experienced will be yours also.
