A 19th Century North American Indian
North American Indians as named by Europeans, were in many ways a lot smarter about spirituality than all the other religions of the world, present and past.
A letter from a wiser Native American, who had better spiritual understanding, than all the Jews, Christians and Muslims of his time…
“Friend and Brother: It was the will of the Great Spirit that we should meet, together this day. He orders all things and has given us a fine day for our council. He has taken his garment from before the sun and caused it to shine with brightness upon us. Our eyes are opened that we see clearly; our ears are unstopped that we have been able to hear distinctly the words you have spoken. For all these favors we thank the Great Spirit, and him only.
“Brother, this council fire was kindled by you. It was at your request that we came together at this time. We have listened with attention to what you have said. You requested us to speak our minds freely. This gives us great joy; for we now consider that we stand upright before you and can speak what we think. All have heard your voice, and all speak to you now as one man. Our minds are agreed.
“Brother, you say you want an answer to your talk before you leave this place. It is right you should have one, as you are a great distance from home and we do not wish to detain you. But first we will look back a little and tell you what our fathers have told us and what we have heard from the white people.
“Brother, listen to what we say. There was a time when our forefathers owned this great island. Their seats extended from the rising to the setting sun. The Great Spirit had made it for the use of Indians. He had created the buffalo, the deer, and other animals for food. He had made the bear and the beaver. Their skins served us for clothing. He had scattered them over the country and taught us how to take them. He had caused the earth to produce corn for bread. All this he had done for his red children because he loved them. If we had some disputes about our hunting-ground, they were generally settled without the shedding of much blood.
“But an evil day came upon us. Your forefathers crossed the great water and landed on this island. Their numbers were small. They found friends and not enemies. They told us they had fled from their own country for fear of wicked men and had come here to enjoy their religion. They asked for a small seat. We took pity on them, granted their request, and they sat down among us. We gave them corn and meat; they gave us poison in return.
“The white people, brother, had now found our country. Tidings were carried back and more came among us. Yet we did not fear them. We took them to be friends. They called us brothers. We believed them and gave them a larger seat. At length, their numbers had greatly increased. They wanted more land; they wanted our country. Our eyes were opened, and our minds became uneasy. Wars took place. Indians were hired to fight against Indians, and many of our people were destroyed. They also brought strong liquor among us. It was strong and powerful, and has slain thousands.
“Brother, our seats were once large and yours were small. You have now become a great people, and we have scarcely a place left to spread our blankets. You have got our country, but are not satisfied; you want to force your religion upon us.
[A.I. comments: The Native American is talking about the invasion of proselytizing Christians, many of whom badly treated the American Indian, as they were called, before the 20th Century. Far too many Christians of the 20th & 21st Century are not truthful about the dark history of Christianity.]
“Brother, continue to listen. You say that you are sent to instruct us how to worship the Great Spirit agreeably to his mind; and if we do not take hold of the religion which you white people teach we shall be unhappy hereafter. You say that you are right, and we are lost. How do we know this to be true? We understand that your religion is written in a book. If it was intended for us, as well as you, why has not the Great Spirit given to us, and not only to us, but why did he not give to our forefathers the knowledge of that book, with the means of understanding it rightly. We only know what you tell us about it. How shall we know when to believe, being so often deceived by the white people?
“Brother, you say there is but one way to worship and serve the Great Spirit. If there is but one religion, why do you white people differ so much about it? Why not all agreed, as you can all read the book?
“Brother, we do not understand these things. We are told that your religion was given to your forefathers and has been handed down from father to son. We also have a religion, which was given to our forefathers and has been handed down to us, their children. We worship in that way. It teaches us to be thankful for all the favors we receive, to love each other, and to be united. We never quarrel about religion.
“Brother, the Great Spirit has made us all, but he has made a great difference between his white and his red children. He has given us different complexions and different customs. To you he has given the arts. To these he has not opened our eyes. We know these things to be true. Since he has made so great a difference between us in other things, why may we not conclude that he has given us a different religion according to our understanding? The Great Spirit does right. He knows what is best for his children; we are satisfied.
“Brother, we do not wish to destroy your religion or take it from you. We only want to enjoy our own.
“Brother, you say you have not come to get our land or our money, but to enlighten our minds. I will now tell you that I have been at your meetings and saw you collect money from the meeting. I cannot tell what this money was intended for, but suppose that it was for your minister; and, if we should conform to your way of thinking, perhaps you may want some from us.
“Brother, we are told that you have been preaching to the white people in this place. These people are our neighbors. We are acquainted with them. We will wait a little while and see what effect your preaching has upon them. If we find it does them good, makes them honest, and less disposed to cheat Indians, we will then consider again of what you have said.
“Brother, you have now heard our answer to your talk, and this is all we have to say at present. As we are going to part, we will come and take you by the hand, and hope the Great Spirit will protect you on your journey and return you safe to your friends.” #
RED JACKET 1805
An honest great Native American

There are many great paintings depicting portraits of Native Americans.
The above painting completed in 1831 was done by artist George Catlin (1796-1872).
Red Jackets greatness was founded upon his high level of integrity. The dimwitted Christians who tried to convert so-called heathen Indians to the way of Christianity, did not have the philosophical intelligence to understand the high-level code of honour practiced by so many Native Americans. A code often superior to the code lived by many dishonorable so-called Christians.
Stop… Please give a minute’s silence in memory of all the unknown ‘Great Native Americans’, whom valiantly fought and died against Christian and Atheist invaders, gallantly defending their right to live free. They lost the final battle, being outnumbered, but their courage shall be always honored and remembered by the caring, lest we forget.
The letter by Red Jacket tables a message that Christianity has been in history at times significantly a forceful proselytic religion; and this was horribly true during the ‘Christian Dark Ages’ and still often lives a contradiction, in short, hypocritical lifestyle. So-called Christian values are indeed very questionable. But I guess that varies significantly, depending upon the character of the individual Christian. Some Christians are good people, others are not good. But Christians that are not good people, are not true Christians, they are in fact ‘Pretend Christians’. This dark identification tag was true of many Popes and Priests, during the violent rage of the ‘Christian Dark Ages’. A large percentage of Christians, Protestant and Catholic, throughout ‘after death’ history have failed to understand Jesus the man, and have failed to live true to the spiritual guidance and truth of Jesus.
Remember Red Jacket’s words… “Brother, you say there is but one way to worship and serve the Great Spirit. If there is but one religion, why do you white people differ so much about it? Why not all agreed, as you can all read the book?”
Therefore, current religions cannot be trusted with the complete truth. Religions are too often in conflict with each other, and many religious and cult thinking persons, will use violence and cruelty to oppress others, to have their tyrannical wicked way. Peace shall only come to humanity when the majority gain ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ and consequently toss all religious false knowledge into the garbage bin. We need the open minded forever expanding guidance of God of Love and Peace, we do not need fixed dogma religion. There is a temporary place for religion, but not in any of the current organised forms that now exist.
It would be wiser to use Buddhism as the guiding light stepping stone of future religion, until philosophical intelligence evolves wisely around the planet.
God gradually taught humans ‘science knowledge’ and expects that knowledge to be wisely used for good and not for evil. God expects the true religion of God to interface with science and discard all false knowledge. God expects religion to evolve with open mind, with infinite mind, knowing no final truth. God expects people to serve God, not worship God, and to work hard over the next million years to learn ‘The Mind of God’, as being gradually taught by God. Simply beware of the dark fanatic deceivers; the way to learn God is through the cosmic path of ‘Blue Light’. It does not mean all the religious texts are wrong, it does mean that these texts were recorded by men that made mistakes. It does mean that many texts were tabled by God, and other texts in religious books, were tabled by Satan to deceive human beings.
There is a right way to separate truth from deceit…learn the method and thou shall come to know the ‘Mind of God’.
If religion wants to survive they must change and adapt or they shall perish. It is naïve to think that all the religions that now exist shall still exist in 5,000 years ahead. The only religions that will survive are those that adapt, change and learn the way of ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ an advanced understanding level tabled by God. Those that have P.I. will respect and value the eternal spiritual value of wisdom, taught by the man Jesus.
This really means of course that all worship religions will vanish and only service belief systems like Buddhism, founded upon peaceful ahimsa philosophy will survive. But such claimed religions like Buddhism, are not true religions as existed in past worship times; such religions are just a contribution to evolving ‘Cosmic Philosophy’.
God of Creation, Cosmic Consciousness, no doubt thinks of us humans as children, and constantly feeds us new knowledge over millenniums to upgrade our understanding…human beings have been expanding their knowledge and upgrading their understanding and skills for thousands of years. As stated previously…
God of Creation taught us science and God taught us about the evolution process; all knowledge comes from God. We are taught by God through a process called ‘Channelling’ which includes the communication method of ‘Prayer Power’ and ‘Thinking Meditation’ and ‘Automatic Suggestion’. When we use this knowledge wisely we benefit. If we use this knowledge foolishly we suffer and self-destruct.
A child will not understand the advanced knowledge and skills of an adult. Likewise, early man, primitive, ancient and medieval, was not ready for the learning of ‘Philosophical Intelligence’. We as humans have been guided by God over thousands of years to learn higher understanding and the right way. Of course, if that is not true, then it follows accurately to say that a God of any type, does not exist, and therefore Atheism is correct. But then we keep coming back to that persistent question… “Where do all ideas come from?” And why does “Channelling Work?”
We modern humans are now ready to learn the next more advanced level, but that is only true for those that are committed to unlearn false knowledge, invented by foolish men and women; and for those that are committed to live open mind, thinking outside the square, free of fixed dogma; and for those that recognise that there is no final truth and that all knowledge is infinite and forever expanding, like the universe. And that is only true for those people that have advanced insight and can see the proof that God is not the Creator and that no such Design Force exists; and thus, those people can recognise that God is of the Creation like us, and is our design guidance through our evolving intelligence; and consequently, can recognise that God like the Universe and the essence of life has always existed, and is forever evolving and expanding and knows no limits.
God taught the Egyptians how to build the ‘Pyramids’, but God has not yet it seems, considered it necessary to explain this building technique to modern man and has thus left us guessing with a mystery. God communicated with the Pharaoh ‘Akhenaten’ but sadly this naïve Pharaoh did not understand the complete message and thus made interpretation mistakes and did not recognise the source of the guidance information. Throughout ancient history people constantly misunderstood God’s messages and instead created their own false knowledge interpretations.
There are many alternative paths to God of Love, but not through religion and cults- we must not worship God, we must simply serve God by living true in the ‘Spirit of Love, Peace, Kindness and Goodwill’. God expects us to make a constant commitment to live a life of decency, as guided by God’s Cosmic Laws. Good Manners is a sign of respect for others, those persons that deliberately fail to live good manners, are disrespecting God and are rejecting God’s Love and God’s commitment to the preservation of Peace throughout the Universe.
It is foolish to describe eternal life…be content simply with the knowledge that ‘something beautiful happens’ unto all caring good-natured creatures, humans, altruistic pets and other species included…God is Love and shall not ever betray us.
True ascendancy comes after a lifetime of open mind forever expanding insight, founded upon philosophical intelligence. Ascendancy goes way past enlightenment and is the link to eternity, which knows no limits.
The speech by Red Jacket also proves that Jesus Christ never visited North America and that the so-called evidence conjured by writers as fact is in truth, false knowledge lies, invented by their own devious stupidity. The ‘Book of Mormon’ is an invented absolute lie. Such liars are deceitful by deliberate intention or are liars by their own ignorant perceptions. Anyone who believes this unproven garbage is truly naïve. To table a theory is reasonable; to sell it as fact void of proof beyond all doubt, is deceitful.
Many Muslims are claiming that Muslims discovered America that is a lie. These unscrupulous dishonourable Muslims, making such phony claims are enemies of truth. The expansion of American was not established by Muslims. Native Americans never fought battles with Muslims, and never ever negotiated with them at any time, because they were not there. The deceit of Muslims trying to rewrite history, inventing untrue statements, is no doubt, one of the evilest things a person can do. And any Muslim that believes these lies, is an absolute idiot of the worst kind.
Up until the 1950’s CE it understandable that people believed in Creationism. But now evidence is clear…there has never been a God, Great Spirit Creator. World it’s time to wake up and face hard reality. God is of the Creation like us. God is a great spiritual guide and as for eternal life…something beautiful happens…that is all we need to know. This is a new higher level of transcendent faith, founded upon evidence that a God designer intelligence creator does not exist. Only Atheists and those persons with ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ can see the proof that a ‘Designer/God Creator’ does not exist. Those persons locked into ‘Fixed Dogma Belief Systems’ without P.I. shall not recognise the proof.
I know fixed dogma religious people will reject this definition of God; and I know Atheists will reject the use of the word God; that is their right in the name of freedom of expression. They are not yet ready to learn the higher way of ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ as taught by the ‘Great Spirit of Cosmic Consciousness’ the ‘Eternal Reservoir of Knowledge’ that which we humans call ‘God’.
Remember that all of us, including God, are ‘nameless’, and if you cannot comprehend why, you are not that smart. Proof now exists through science that a ‘God Creator’ does not exist- and if you cannot see that proof it is because your mind is asleep locked into a ‘Dreamtime’ belief system. When innocent people die throughout history religious people use adages like… “God moves in mysterious ways…It is the will of God.” These adages are false knowledge lies, designed to deceive us by leading our minds into a belief by faith that God approves of such deaths, and that God wanted these innocent people to die.
God is Love and does not will people to die; God does not will innocent people to die and God does not will evil people to die. All the innocent people that have been killed throughout history by natural disasters, by accidents and by war, died because God did not have the physical power to protect them. They died victims of bad luck, being in the wrong place at the wrong time. They died because God is not the Creator, because God is of the Creation; because God is only a ‘Spiritual Guide of Cosmic Consciousness’ and because God is only a teacher of wisdom and ‘Cosmic Law’ that helps us improve quality of life for all altruistic creatures. God is Love, God is Peace, and God does not ever condone or will the right of life to use violence except in self-defence, when being physically attacked. By the law of nature God recognises that all creatures have the right to protect themselves, that is all- no more. Until a person understands this hard reality truth, they shall never learn the ‘Mind of God’.
An unto those persons that accuse the writer of being arrogant be careful- because if the word arrogant is a valid word then the most arrogant of all people are those that follow ‘fixed dogma religious, cult and political systems’ that refuse to be open minded and open ended. The word ‘Arrogant’ is like the words, ‘Blasphemy, Apostasy and Heresy’ they are on the rejected list by ‘Cosmicism’, because these words are constantly used by twisted thinking people, to intimidate and abuse others; and threatening bully abuse is an evil act.
Read Amazon.com Kindle or Paperback book ‘Insanity of Hate’ for more insight about ‘Blasphemy, Apostasy and Heresy’ and about enemy anti-freedom of speech movements.
Red Jacket revealed… “It teaches us to be thankful for all the favors we receive, to love each other, and to be united. We never quarrel about religion.”
Love is greater than any religion. Love is greater than any Creator is. Love is of the creation. That is the true significant difference.
History repeats itself time and again…
Using Red Jacket’s words rewritten by A.I. – deleted word ‘white’ inserted word ‘Muslim’. Deleted word ‘Indian’ inserted ‘Infidel’. Deleted ‘strong liquor,’ inserted ‘Sharia Law’. A prophesy of what is now happening in every ‘Western Country’, and shall continue to grow worse, until the high risk of civil war explodes, between Muslims and non-believers. Thanks to inferior thinking politicians in the West- increasing violence is coming…
“But an evil day came upon us. Your forefathers crossed the great water and landed on this island. Their numbers were small. They found friends and not enemies. They told us they had fled from their own country for fear of wicked men and had come here to enjoy their religion. They asked for a small seat. We took pity on them, granted their request, and they sat down among us. We gave them corn and meat; they gave us poison in return.”
“The Muslim people, brother, had now found our country. Tidings were carried back and more came among us. Yet we did not fear them. We took them to be friends. They called us brothers. We believed them and gave them a larger seat. At length, their numbers had greatly increased. They wanted more land; they wanted our country. Our eyes were opened, and our minds became uneasy. Wars took place. Infidels were hired to fight against Infidels, and many of our people were destroyed. They also brought Sharia Law among us. It was strong and powerful, and has slain thousands.”
Islam’s Mission is to conquer the world and force conversion. The ‘Islamization of the Globe’ will send the world back 1400 years into darkness- an age of cruelty, oppression and violence.
The problem we now face is that during the last 1400 years Islam keeps expanding its’ power of control, invading and conquering new countries. Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism all primary partial resisters have failed to stop Islam. Why is this true? The reason is simple…80% of all the people that follow these four religions have one thing in common, they are apathetic and chose the path of ignorance, they chose and still do, to hide their head in the sand. That is the real reason violent Islam is winning takeover of the planet earth.
