False Prophets (March 12, 2009)

 

            The messages of all religions are fundamentally the same.  Prophets and False Prophets have the tendency to show up occasionally for one purpose: turning the tables over the sacerdotal castes and chasing them out of the temples.  Prophets are different from False Prophets on two counts:

 

First, Prophets are lucky; they tend to sense the right moment and conditions for change. They are on a mission to destroying the highly structured and hierarchical religious institutions, the nemesis for true faith and devotion. They ruin the flourishing business of the professional guild of priesthood for short periods.  False Prophets are squarely and quickly defeated by the sacerdotal casts and thus attributed the label of “False Prophets”.  In both cases, the sacerdotal castes win in the long run and for long centuries; the very brief setbacks don’t do a dent to their business as usual.  False Prophets must necessarily lack both charisma and luck.  The wining Prophets are attributed heavy dose of charisma, whether we like it or not, whether it is true or not.

 

Second, False Prophets have no patience and their wisdoms have a lot to be desired.  They arouse people with the sword from the start and they fail to deliver the loot as quickly as expected.  False Prophets have been denied membership in the sacerdotal guild but they still want a share in the business. False prophets are bad actors and cannot play the role of the selfless leader consistently and for any advisable duration.  Most probably, they are over literate with no adequate people know-how, and thus refuse to get advised on human conditions and behavior.

 

False Prophets are definitely unlucky.  That is why “True Prophets” are countable and their coming is so far spaced out in time.  The messages of the “True Prophets” are like the Shooting Stars; their brilliance wane quickly as the vultures of extremists and confessionals grab on the remains of the martyrs.  And the vicious rotten cycle is closed.  Human kind is mostly a scared, coward, and suckered specie, with plenty of hot air to boot.  Faced with the binary choice of man and uranium, States opt to enrich uranium.

 

Note:  I exaggerated a little. The premise is valid and clear.
