Interview with Maan Khamis

In your book, Chosen by Satan, you affirmed that the Old Testament is a product of evil; why?
It is evident to us what evil is. It is selfish human ambitions; it is greed, it is racism, it is killing or raping children, it is lying, it is sacrifice of animals and humans, etc.
The Old Testament is the most horrendous depiction of evil behaviors ever. Yet, we are told to believe it as the inspired words of our creator. Jesus wisely stated, “You shall know them by their fruit.” The Old Testament is a forest of poisonous fruit. Christianity and Islam face the same problem: they built their religion on the evil foundation of The Old Testament and its Lord.
True God is the eternal truth. The eternal truth is independent of time or geographic location. The eternal truth does not produce suffering. Religions, on the other hand, are subject to time and location which renders them ultimately unreal. If you were born in a different geographic location or during a different time in history, you would have different religious truth. Temporary reality is a projection of thoughts. If your reality is based on ancient myths, your frame of reference is distorted accordingly. You are only able to see the ultimate truth when all your entrenched thoughts are abandoned.
What is the ultimate reality?
The ultimate reality is life. Life creates; life evolves; life manifests; life is eternal. We are a manifestation of life; we are eternal.
We perceive reality based on our learned thoughts. E.g., a Muslin, a Jew, an atheist, and a Christine might witness a child being saved from a burning house. The Christine would thank Jesus for saving the child. The Muslim would thank Allah for saving the child. The Jew would admire the child good luck. An atheist would thank the fireman for his bravery. Who saved the child? It all depends on what you believe. Hence, your entrenched beliefs control your interpretation of reality.
Think of the concepts of heaven and hell. Why are they necessary? How would you perceive the world if you abandoned these concepts? Go to a park on a beautiful spring day. Can heaven be any more beautiful than that? Why do we demand more from life?
What is the universal awareness?
We are the forms by which the universe experience awareness. The more total awareness we experience individually, the more the universe becomes aware. We can comprehend such concept by thinking of a network of computers. Network awareness is the sum of the awareness of its nodes.
You stated that our fear of death is what necessitated the need for religion. Can you explain?
Our misunderstanding of death is the cause of our attachment to religion. Death is not the opposite of life. It is the opposite of birth. Without death, birth is not possible. Death loses its grip on us when we understand that concept. Religions lose their grip on us. As a result, we are set free.
What motivated you to author this book?
I do not claim any credit for this book. This book was manifested through me. I was no more than an instrument for this book. I was writing what was dictated to me by the universe. The urge to write was very powerful; I had no choice but to submit and write.

Followers of the Old Testament (OT) are guided by error. The OT Lord and his conspirators are the epitomai of evil. Humanity will not reach enlightenment until all copies of the OT are removed and thrown into a pit of fire where they will feel at home. The OT should be displayed in mass serial killers section in all public libraries. It is time for us to receive overdue apologies from the Jews.
