List of Jewish messiah claimants
[link to en.m.wikipedia.org (secure)] <----------


Look how many there are.


 Quoting: Seer777

It was something that struck me in the Mormon Manson documentary. These men have 'visions' and then claim to be 'the messiah' or the chosen one.

His brother, the one he had killed, is still viewed in that manner in the group.

It just all seems so silly now. All of it. Devious too. The dissonance is gone though. I feel like I see it clearer now that I'm on the outside. At least for now.
 Quoting: Seer777

Why are some people's visions considered valid and true, while anyone else that claims that 'God talks to them in words' are considered raving lunatics with advanced schizophrenia?

What is the difference between the obviously insane, and Joseph Smith?

Is there one?

What does that link prove..about people in general, or about our current reality?

It..shocked me straight. Looking at all those names, next Jesus.

I've considered it in many different forms over the years, but never quite like that.

I want to hold on to how this feels. If I can. It is so simple to fall back under the spell.
 Quoting: Seer777

I think the link shows that lots of people have been "touched". Some by an outside force, others perhaps "touched in the head" chuckle

You'll hear an artist speak of how they were possessed when a true flash of inspiration struck - almost as if something unseen was acting upon them. Perhaps it is more common, and acts in more ways then believed - from those who's words have echoed across time - Jesus for example, Shakespeare, Buddha etc, or who's art remains in the psych (Da vinci) or the acts of some - Joan of Arc.

What seems most common among them is they forged their own paths, whatever form that may have taken
