Faith : a manifesto (english)
08 Nov 2003
In parts one and two of this manifesto on faith, I discuss examples of failed mysticism, using the examples of failed mysticism in the ancient Jewish and Christian traditions. My purpose in discussing this issue was to help prepare the ground for a discussion of certain very strange experiences I have had which are the seed bed of my faith in the future, while at the same time, hopefully, I can help people to avoid the pitfalls encountered when mystification is used to attempt to explain the unknown and the uncertain.
Faith, a manifesto : Part 1 : Jewish prophecy as Failed mysticism
http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/11/274528.shtml

It is interesting to note just how bound up the Jewish prophets were with their environment, and the ancient view of ‘environmentalism’ presents us with a lesson in failed mysticism, as well as teaching some valuable lessons in the theology of ‘divine intervention.’



Faith, a manifesto : Part 2 : Failed mysticism in the Christian tradition
http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/11/274527.shtml
The progress of modern science has revealed that traditional Christian theology is false. This particular expression of failed mysticism could only be appropriate for the dark or middle ages, and is revealed as completely obsolete in the modern world.
