Christianity and Religion in Social Sciences
The question is really “what is Christianity” and how does it differ from a life of generally trying to do good things and telling the truth and being a loving person while avoiding negative thoughts and dark spirits? Christianity lies in the parable of Jesus who was the one God become man who lived amongst men and women, and ended His life by confronting evil amidst men and women, and that is why we say He died for our sins as if we did not commit so many sins, there wouldn’t have been room for evil to enter to the degree that it did back in the days, and those were the sins of our fathers so it is our sin as well, regardless of whether you can trace your lineage back to the Bible, that was all mankind and the word is final.
We say that Christianity is about remembering the sacrifice of Jesus and thus continuing his mission as a healer on this planet, drawn only to confronting evil when we must as Jesus was primarily about the divine and only secondarily about making mankind a battleground between good and evil. He only did that towards the end of His life. In fact, it really is about worship about Jesus, so the religion is about worship as this worship impels us to behave differently, specifically, we organize ourselves amidst churches, and seek to find answers to the problems of mankind while adhering to the religion of Jesus. In other words, we can finally say Christianity is all about worship and in that worship we cleanse ourselves and become better Christians in the eyes of other Christians, and that dimension is a dimension of itself which is different from the worldly dimensions of being a good person generally: we call that dimension that of the soul. In worshipping a historical figure who was a remarkable man, we channel Him into our souls and that repairs us.
Now, where is the room by which we can include Christianity in modern social science? For instance, some countries like China aren’t Christian at all. We can’t: which shows us the limits of social science compared to religion. Social science is the study of interactions between man and man and man and woman. Religion is the study between mankind and God. There is so much that will never be explained by social science, but divine answers exist if we pray, not for any reason but that the religion works on its own, separate from any do gooding in the life. So we say that religion is fundamentally there because it works.
Can people stifle religion? They can’t. What they can stifle is a construct based on the Christian religion which are racial constructs of purity and whatnot which have already come under pressure under the Trump regime. But that isn’t the Christian religion. It is the end of an era, it is the end of a type of society based on harmonies around race, but it won’t go down without a fight and that is what it is doing under Trump to the point I can no longer support what it does, but I will remember it, my fondest memories being in high school, but that will be gone and replaced with an environment where private schools dominate. Much like where I ended up working later. So in the end, there is sense, it’s just it may leave the middle class behind which was always too big on the pyramid anyway according to USA modern sociology taught to me nearly fifteen years ago in high school.
It took me a long time to understand what was at work was normal and what was in high school was abnormal, but I have understood, and as part of my religion, I will now strive to solve some of the problems for society I’ve always wished to solve. It does seem like high school life is what dominates life in the city streets of Boston for example, but that is misleading. The USA high school collectively voted for Trump with some sections of the country protesting. The rest of us whose lives are not defined by high school have to move on.
Of course, the problem is some public high schools survived the transition, and many private colleges have not. Every rule meets an exception or at least a corner case. If even some public high schools are okay but colleges are struggling under the Trump regime, we ask what about corporations, where do they fall? It just depends what they are. Corporations built like families will always be your family. And how a family works is new members join you, not your existing family. So new members of your corporate family may be already positioned where you are going, but most importantly, they are with you at home, where home is where the heart is, and that home is Chicago with the nice Swissotel. Boston on the other hand these days feels very German with British-educated German admirals shouting around: “torpedo! Torpedo trump campaign sir!” I am just one person so what am I doing in Boston? Two families. The family in Boston is a “Continental” one as guys, that is just how admissions works at Harvard while my actual blood family is the same as my family in Chicago, it’s based on Europe and China. A family is defined by a type of love.
Alright guys, we need to get back to making some monnaie. I will be uploading next an article on futures and options trading. That will be exotic beta as all exotic beta comprises is making money in up markets by shuffling money around rapidly. But at least they are not all short vol…… like convert bond traders during a period of time in the nineties when they all blew up. Take care all, and I just wanted to show you that if you don’t go to church, you may be unable to worship and it’s hard to call yourself a Christian then as Christian has nothing to do with worldly success but it does have a lot to do with sanity I would argue, a healthy soul will take you places. It’s too late though for me to do much in the continental side, I’m not going to have a seat at the matchup between Harvard and Trump, but I heard from various sources, the UK, French and Russia favor Trump or at least the USA presidency as a figurehead. The UK tends to confuse me with Harvard, but given I am right-wing and thus Republican, I get along with British Empire, and that is what’s important: the British Empire as well as the Confederacy, we find each other funny, in the bar or elsewhere, but WASP institutions in the USA like the episcopal church, which are overtly but not really British, they go support Harvard against Trump. Well I’ll tell you where I’m from, we just say “wtf” and stay neutral. I suppose I’s got to live here now in what I call Germany because I made too much trouble back in the day. Luckily, we did manage to save my heretofore German high school, so I’m chilling in Liechtenstein of America. Where Small People call you out-of-control!
