Red Ice Radio: Daniel Hammarberg - Abrahamic Religion: The Dark Side of Judaism
Daniel Hammarberg is a native Swede who has written many articles on current events and social issues. He has also worked with the anti-pedophile movement Nätverket Stoppa Pedofilerna, publicizing the identities, crimes and physical whereabouts of convicted child molesters – information that Swedish authorities keep hidden. When he is not writing or engaged in activism, Daniel enjoys sea swimming and powerlifting.
To begin, we dive into the main topic of our show: religion. We touch on the history of the three main Abrahamic religions, and discuss how modern Christianity is, in many ways, quite ahistorical. Daniel calls attention to Evangelicals in particular, arguing that they are incorrect for believing that Jews are the chosen people, as their covenant with God ended after the coming of Christ. We then discuss the Spanish Inquisition, which Daniel provides as an example of the real relationship between Christianity and Judaism. While on the subject, Daniel reads a few choice passages from Martin Luther concerning the Jews. The first hour concludes with a discussion on the dark side of Judaism.
In the members’ hour, Daniel offers a fascinating comparison between Judaism and National Socialism. He argues that both emphasize a military savior, the importance of blood ties, and the desire to conquer others. We then discuss the true nature of diversity, and how it is threatened by unchecked miscegenation. Back on the subject of religion, we consider whether or not the events depicted in the Bible are historically accurate. Daniel argues that, while there may be a degree of historical truth to them, they are mostly exaggerated. We take the opportunity to explore the possibility that various Biblical accounts of God were actually descriptions of natural events, such as volcano eruptions. The show concludes with a discussion on what we can learn from the tragedy of the USS Liberty.
