From Gnosticism to Marxism: The Spirit of Antichrist in Movement – OnePeterFive

Posted By on June 13, 2022

In part one we defined Gnosticism. Part two demonstrated how the Big Bang Theory corresponds to general Occultism. Now we will show how modern evolutionary theory connects to each system.

H.P. Blavatsky believed that, allegorically, the whole Darwinian theory of natural selection is included in the first six chapters of the book of Genesis, and that the Serpents knowledge represents what she calls the Secret Doctrine: the dual-evolution and advancement of mankind. She also asserts that ancient Judaism merely copied the imagery from Eastern religion, perverted it, and made the Serpents knowledge out to be a negative thing. To her, the only Judaism that gets it right is Kabbalah.[1]

Carl Sagan had almost the exact same view. He saw the Fall as a viable allegory for the evolution of man, and that the Serpents knowledge was symbolic of fostering evolutionary development.[2] Elsewhere, he heralds religions [like] Hinduism [and] Gnostic Christianity, which teach, as impious as it may sound, that it is the goal of humans to become gods. He, too, links them to ideas of Jewish mysticism in the Talmud: that God intentionally left the Universe unfinished, and that it is the responsibility of humans, over countless generations [i.e. evolution] to participate with God in a glorious experimentcompleting the Creation.[3]

Sagan, himself of Jewish lineage, found the ancient Egyptian city of Alexandria to be a kind of muse in his Cosmos series. For him, the city was a kind of Paradise Lost, with its fall due to the Dark Ages of Christendom. Alexandria also happens to be the seat of ancient Gnosticism.[4]

The figure of Sophia in Gnosticism is a heralded heroine set against the God of Israel as her accidental offspring. Although she is seen as having made a mistake by coming into the realm of matter, she is nonetheless associated with the higher forces of divinity, and is the muse of those rebelling against the Demiurges matrix of false-reality.

Sophia is the Greek word for Wisdom; it is an essential theme in OT literature, especially for Catholicism. However, the Gnostic Sophia, despite developing from Jewish Wisdom, also has overlap with the the Isis myths of Egyptian religion; thus having its roots in the Jewish communities of ancient Alexandria, who were heavily Hellenized.[5]

The Diaspora plays a heavy role here. Quispel elaborates, and shows how the foundations for Gnosticism were already in place before the time of Christ,

The historical Diaspora was the basic presupposition for the philosophical tenet that nature is Spirit in exile, God is being in movement, and that matter and history are the result of dialectics. The latter in fact is an oriental myth. It would seem that only the Jewish Diaspora is the historical presupposition for this view. Only in this specific milieu could [this] awareness arise.

Nils Dahl has argued that the target of the Gnostic revolt is the creator of the world rather than the world itself. In fact the world is better than God (I add that in the same way their target was not the Jewish people, but the deficient Law of a tribal god). Dahl shows convincingly that the main claim of the arrogant demiurgeis only understandable as a protest within Judaism.[6]

Although many Gnostics viewed the world of matter as evil, the views spoken of here are a bit modified: it is merely the OT Creator who is the problem; the natural world is better than Him, albeit in need of some re-tooling due to a flawed designer, or at least a flawed conception of Him like Sagan proposes.

Its important to highlight the fundamental tenet that developed: that the Sophianic Spirit was in movement through the dialectics of matter and history, and that rebellion against the God of Israel and His deficient Lawwhat we call Judeo-Christian valuesis inseparable from this struggle.

Indeed, the Gnostic Sophia was in exile throughout the Dark Ages of Christendom, waiting for the spark of divinity to shine forth and awaken the masses of Western Civilization; to liberate it from the horror of its Creator: the God of Israel and the Catholic Church. The means for escape, as we know, involves a kind of secret gnosis as to the true origins of man. Until such a time, religious wars fought in His Name are merely false-dialectical tensions, but ones that foster evolution toward the self-realization that the Judeo-Christian religion is merely an opiate for the masses.

In the search for origins beyond Judeo-Christianity, Darwins most famous work, On the Origin of Species (1859), presented a spark of illumination. However, his view of evolution left little room for revolutionary change. The distinct idea of movement and dialectics came later, particularly from the Marxist camp. Britannica tells us that Marx, adopting certain aspects of Hegel, believed that history conforms to a dialectical pattern, where contradictions are to overcome or transcended in the next phase.

Another major proponent of adding the label dialectical to Darwins evolutionary orientation was Marxist professor Georgi Plekhanov (d. 1918). Dubbed the father of Russian Marxism, Plekhanov heralded Darwins contributions as a triumph of a historical orientation in biology. He wrote that so long as biology adhered to a static view of nature, it relied on metaphysical styles of thought.[7]

Plekhanov also praised the work of Dutch botanist Hugo de Vries (d. 1935) whose mutation theory challenging the Darwinian commitment to gradualism, gave support to the idea of the dialectics of nature. He called it epoch-making and viewed it as a confirmation of Engels dialectics of nature. Others like anarchist prince Pyotr Alexeyevich Kropotkin heralded the new arrival of evolutionary thought, believing that Russia was indebted to Darwin for its awakening of naturalism, which further demonstrates the woke ideology of Nature in exile transcending Russian Christendom.[8]

Although Marxs system is known for its focus on the material over the spiritual, its hard not to see the parallels with the Gnostic tenet Quispel described. In fact, the relationship forms a dialectic of its own: the Marxists put an emphasis on the material, but as we can see the system has hidden spiritual foundations; while the ancient Gnostics put an emphasis on the spirit, but were often accused of materialist behavior, as many Church Fathers denounced them for being unwilling to suffer persecution and martyrdom in the Name of Christ.[9]

In further irony, it seems that many Communist materialists were more willing to suffer and die for their beliefs than the more spiritual Gnostics of ancient times, particularly the Communists in Chinathe apparent origin of the Gnostic philosophic tenet.

Bolsheviks like Lenin were more partial to the evolutionary theories of Ernst Haeckel.[10] Haeckel was a great popularizer of Darwin, especially in Germany. Hes alleged to be a major source of inspiration for Nazi eugenicists, but this is hotly contested (for obvious reasons). What is not contested is Haeckels hatred of religion, particularly of the Roman Catholic variety, which isnt surprising see as he was situated right in the middle of the German Kulturkampf.

Yet Haeckel still thought of himself as a religious person, but was more interested in a monistic religion of humanity grounded in pantheism, which is in lock-step with Blavatskys Theosophy.[11] In fact, Haeckel was copiously quoted by her as a scientific authority to support her theories that mixed Darwinian evolution with Eastern pantheism and reincarnation.[12]

Haeckel also loathed the Jesuits as much as Blavatsky. In 1911 he formed a response to what he called Jesuitic attacks against his work.[13] The very first rebuttal Haeckel offered was evidence of kinship between an Irish prelate and an ape. By comparing their images, Haeckel deemed them to be two primates of close relation, facetiously suggesting that the Roman Catholic species had not evolved much since mankinds (alleged) apish-origins, putting his most scientific rebuttal front and center.

Marx was no fan of the God of Israel either despite his Jewish lineage and Lutheran upbringing. Although the Nazis, who campaigned against Marxism and Bolshevism, are most famously known for their anti-Semitism, Marxs rhetoric on the God of the Jews is almost indistinguishable from theirs. Furthermore, many prominent Nazis were rebelling against their Catholic upbringing (e.g. Hitler, Himmler, etc.), like the Gnostics of old against orthodox Judaism.

The Catholic Church is often erroneously blamed for the anti-Semitism of the Nazis, yet the Nazis frequently lumped them into the same categories as the Jews, particularly the Jesuits of the time who were considered a priori enemies of the Reich.[14] In fact, the first group Adolf Hitler rails against in Mein Kampf was not the Jews, but rather the Habsburg dynasty: the last remaining bastion of the Holy Roman Empires temporal sword. Hitler, while railing against Habsburg hypocrisy, calls them a rotten and degenerate dynasty, which is ironic considering how Blessed Karl of Austria fathered eight children and Hitler had none.[15]

All this fit into the Nazis so-called Positive Christianity schema that rejected the OT Yahweh and disconnected Him from the so-called Aryan Christjust as the primitive Gnostics did but without the Nordic tribalism attached. Here are some quotes extracted from both Marx and general Nazi propaganda; the reader can guess where each comes from (see notes for the answers),

[Our opponents are] the Jewish among them the Jesuit-ultramontane.[16]

Jewish Jesuitism, the same practical Jesuitism in the Talmud, is the relation of the world of self-interest to the laws governing that world, the chief art of which consists in the cunning circumvention of these laws.[17]

Such is laid down in the Talmud a swindle[the] Capitalist [system] is built up upon mass swindling and exploitation in great and small things. The JewplacingJehovah at the centre of all things thus creates a focal point for himself The dismissal of this tyrant god would have been synonymous with the dethronement of his papal representative.[18]

What, in itself, was the basis of the Jewish religion? Practical need, egoism Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man and turns them into commodities.[19]

[We fight] the spirit of Jewish materialism within us and without us, and is convinced that a lasting recovery can only take place from within, on the basis of the principle: public need comes before private greed.[20]

It seems very much a familiar spirit at work here. The Gnosticism of Marxism and Nazism is evident. Maybe the Radical Left, who calls everyone who disagrees with them a Nazi, would do well to recognize its common origin of species.

It is no secret that evolutionary theory was at the heart of both Nazi Communist ideology. But perhaps the true secret knowledge hidden from the somnambulant masses is that each corresponded to certain fundamental tenets of ancient Gnosticism, albeit in different ways and for different reasons. In further irony, it would appear that Darwinian dialectics and evolutionary theories are just as much an opiate of the masses and just as religious in nature as anything the archons of Judeo-Christianity or the Catholic Church could muster up in the 2,000 years of its existence, and caused far more wars and genocide in just one century compared to 2,000 years; its just that adherents of the former have not achieved gnosis of this fact.

Marxist-Darwinian dialectics appear to be nothing more than Lucifers inversion of the Holy Spirit, Who moves through the Church and synthesizes the various conflicts in Christendom into dogmas. The anti-Spirit does precisely the opposite: it causes conflict and chaos and false-dialectics that synthesize in a destruction of Christendom, moving each new reincarnation further from it; and any new dogmas it declares are subjective truths that mutate and evolves to suit the same end. Such gnosis could potentially liberate adherents of Gnostic-tenets of any sort from their true oppressorthe Adversary and his minionsilluminating them to the horror that their rule has kept them trapped and bound in the temporal realm for centuries, all under the illusion of Enlightenmentwhich is nothing less than the lie in the Garden.

Aside from the basic premise of evolution of species, little else was unified among its proponents.[21] It seems as if multiple factions were fighting to become the pope of evolutionary theory, desiring the power to infallibly interpret its meaning and formulate their own views into eternal truths. It is therefore ironic that so much of its development was fostered in direct opposition to the Church, and is perhaps similar to how many Protestants ran with Luthers foundations of Faith and Scripture alone, yet ended up with radically different views from his: from 1517 (Protestantism) to 1717 (Freemasonry) to 1917 (Communism).

Darwin, like Luther, opened the flood-gate; it could not be put back in place, and each would likely have been horrified at their progeny. Although many would argue that evolutionary theory has nothing to do with Protestantism, which believes in the God of Israel, they did share the same mortal enemy: the Jesuits and the Romish Church; perhaps that is the only dialectical synthesis that matters, and shows where true transcendence lies.
