Kabbalah: Summary of Craziness

Summary of Craziness (in response to criticism about this post):

  • Klippot (Blockages): Everyone has a direct and clear connection to the upper metaphysical world of the "Light", but that this channel is blocked by Klipot.
    I am surprised that the Church of Scientology hasn't sued the Kabbalah Center...this sounds like those pesky Thetans.
  • Strong Belief in Astrology and Zodiac. 1970 called, they want their New Age bullshit back.
  • Claims Jesus was a Kabbalahist. I thought the Jews didn't recognize Jeebus as the Messiah. So why would him being a Kabbalahist be a selling point?
  • All Religions have their roots in the Kabbalah. I think this one is acctualy spot-on. The Kabbalah is based on the belief that people are stupid enough to believe long as it makes them feel more special than other people.
  • Sell Kabbalah Mountain Spring Water (link). What use is a religion if you can't make money off it?
  • Claim: "Just to tell you another thing about the six million Jews that were killed in the Holocaust: the question was that the Light was blocked. They didn't use Kabbalah." (link). Yes...the light was blocked. Funny, I never used Kabbalah and NO ONE has ever asked me to 'get on ze train'.
  • Video: The Power of Kabbalah (link)
  • Video: Kaballah, Science, and the Perception of Reality (link)
Kabbalah may be based in legitimate Jewish mysticism, but that's not what the Kabbalah Center is peddling. The fact it's attractive to so many flakey celebrities shows it is merely repackaged New Age shite that is easy for the shallow and ignorant to put in their personal voids.
