I’m not sure how well known the “Volcano God” meme is. It originated, like many of our memes have, with the TRS Crew. I’m pretty sure Mike Enoch was the first to propagate it. When having heard the TRS Fam use it, it has pretty much been light-hearted. Most people who I have heard use the term, use it regarding the Jews. It is funny.
I think it’s safe to say that people would generally think of a volcano god as angry. Playing up the angry angle with arbitrariness and silliness while mocking practices like the modern day (((foreskin))) rituals or, vitriol towards other aspects of modern day Judaism is good stuff.
Depending on your religious views and understanding, it could be offensive, especially depending on the application of the meme, but we’re all of a different mind and understanding.
From what I can tell, in this case, the source material comes from the lying subversive slug of a man known as Jordan Maxwell.
Jordan Maxwell: Greasy Bond Villain meets Cranky Jiminy Glick
Maxwell pretty much tells a bunch of spooky and convincing lies very well. Loons worship him. He is a religious and temporal conspiracy theorist. He is Anti-Christos and Anti-Christianity. He wants his audience to believe in Astrotheology and The Occult. He also wants his listeners to believe when we broke our Mothers' water and were birthed, we somehow became "State's Property" because being birthed is really disembarking from a ship like cargo. He talks a bunch of other weird bullshit. None of it is true.
The volcano meme comes from a talk Maxwell did on the Jews of Moses' time. He said when Moses went up to the Mountain to talk to God who was described as smoke and flame, Moses was really just talking to a volcano somehow. According to Maxwell though, God was a Volcano at that point...
The details don't really matter as the smoke and flame of the volcano would have killed Moses - some type of acrid gas would have killed him.
Maxwell also conveniently leaves out the part where "the pillar of smoke and flames," God, followed the Israelites. By day God shaded them and lit the way and/or camp by night.
Mike Enoch said he liked to veg out to Maxwell. I have to figure he processed the info into a meme. Someone told me that it referred to that Tom Hanks volcano movie but when I saw the Maxwell video, things clicked quite well.
I, myself used to find Maxwell interesting until I figured out how slimy and obnoxious he was, the depth and breadth of his lies and, his underlying ideology.
In a way, Maxwell has spawned a good meme.
