New sample chapter from the upcoming esoteric edition, titled The Metaphysics of Hyperspace, has been posted in the essays page.
A complaint that I recently got is that I am “biased.” This is astonishing to me because essentially all I did was cite what is actually written in the Bible itself. All that I am doing is showing them the parts of the Bible that their pastors etc. are skipping over. If they are skipping over these parts, who then is really biased? It is impossible to take these criticisms seriously.
This has become an very interesting case in psychology. The real problem is not that I wrote anything that is not true, but rather that I wrote something that conflicts with the perspective that has been ingrained into their psyche since childhood. It is amazing to behold. My book does not conflict with the facts, it conflicts with their indoctrination. So far the reaction from the critics is “This is not what I learned in Sunday school!” Indeed, my book is for those who are ready for the next level.
Then there are the others who complain but when pressed on the issue they admit that they did not even finish reading the book or even read the book at all!
For example, look at this transcription of a conversation that appeared in the comments section of the video for the book:
Tricky Tricky: After all this time, if we were to know more, God would have given it to us. (Poor Mormons, a case in point, all their distortions. Paul admonished us about those who have another gospel than the one he preached: Let them be accursed..)
Novoneiro: I can tell that you never even read the book. You should be embarrassed.
Tricky Tricky: O!
Shout out to "novoneiro" by the way.
Let's take a look at what an Amazon reviewer wrote about my book:
I'm not good at writing reviews so all I can say is that this book is full of lies, blasphemy and scripture taken out of context. What you're reading is one man's opinion . Vondenburg is clearly very well educated and it shows in his writing but, there are falsehoods on every single page. I'm so glad I didn't pay money for it.
I would like now to respond to this:
About the so-called "lies": If this person is accusing me of lying they would have to call the Bible a lie. This is because almost everything that I write about is taken directly from the Bible.
About the "blasphemy": The findings are only blasphemous to people who do not understand the true mission of Jesus. My findings do not deny the greatness of the Christ whatsoever! I doubt that this person even read the entire book. This is the type of person who would have called for the execution of Jesus had they been alive when he was in Jerusalem. They cannot tell the difference between blasphemy and revelation. Their hearts and their minds have been hardened - just as Jesus warned.
About "taking things out of context": Everything in the Bible that I refer to is clearly cited. I did this so that the reader would be able to refer back to their own Bible so that they could check the context for themselves. I am not asking anyone to take my word for it. It is also interesting that the person could not cite even one example of my taking something out of context.
I've been thinking today (based on an email that I got) about how some people are so adamantly set into their old interpretations that they have simply closed themselves off to knowledge. They have already made up their minds that they will not progress and evolve. They have made their peace with the fact that they are stuck.
I now better understand what made Socrates the wisest man in Greece. He was wise because he KNEW that he knew nothing.
It seems that it is the unwise who already have all the answers.
The video trailer for the Judeo-Christian Edition has been posted to the Home Page. The video for the Esoteric Edition that I referred to in my previous post will be coming out later.
As part of a special promotional campaign, I will be giving away copies of the Genesis of Revelation for FREE! All I ask in return is that you consider leaving a review on Amazon.com.
This will be happening sometime in the near future.
To be alerted as to when this is going to happen please get on the email list.
My go-to graphic design guy: Trenor Rapkins ( http://trenorart.webs.com/ ), has designed a new cover for the upcoming Esoteric Edition. I really like the way it came out. [see below]
In related news, he is also putting together a promotional video for the book. I have seen some clips of it and I can say that it is truly amazing. I have no idea when it is going to be finished. I do not want to put it out there until it is time to launch the book. Not sure when that will be.
There is not a lot of politics in my books; however, I felt compelled to make the following exception:
In some countries, most notably in the United States of America, the link between Pauline Judeo-Christianity, politics, big business, and the military industrial congressional complex is especially conspicuous and consequential. Some at the top, who, in previous times were referred to as the “Robber Barons” and “the masters of mankind,” and who are now more commonly referred to as plutocrats and oligarchs, have been able to use this conglomerate for their own advantage. Through the use of “think tanks,” they have devised ways in which to not only foment an environment of moral skepticism (i.e., moral particularism)—especially in regards to honesty and avarice—but convince the general populace to replace their own self-interest, as well as the welfare of the environment, with that of the wealthy corporate elite. By disseminating disinformation (i.e., social constructivism) that exploit the fears, the prejudices, and the ignorance of the people, this faction has been able to take advantage of low-information voters—many of which themselves are abject members of the precariat. The plutocrats execute this reckless and unethical campaign while simultaneously aligning themselves with the cherished symbols of tradition (e.g, Bible; Constitution; flag; etc.) (i.e., the hyperreal simulation), which they use to conceal the sociopathic greed that underlies their patriotic pretense. This stratagem has been, for the most part, surprisingly effective.
