Re: The breaking apart of the planet: Change. Don’t think that this planet can’t break apart, that a big chunk won’t fly off into the galaxy. This is possible. Continuing to set off nuclear weapons, either above ground or below ground can and will make it probable. If a big chunk spirals off, I’m not sure if the planet could stay in its present orbit minus that chunk. It could be that as the earth corrects itself everything else in the galaxy would also correct itself, changing the present configuration of the solar system. Global warming won’t at that point be the issue. Closer or further from the moon and sun will make…well, not a pretty picture. Don’t trust the current science if it doesn’t include this probability.
Change that probability. I know you can.
Re: guys who want to control the whole world: They think they’re entitled. They want to be all powerful. What they don’t want is somebody telling them they can’t. What they don’t know is that by controlling themselves, by deciding to engage or not engage in any activity, in any given situation, even one’s thoughts, and deciding to use the blueprint as the transparency placed over all situations to illuminate the good, the bad and the solution, they do control the world–by controlling themselves.
Re: the torture bill: Anytime you insert “we reserve the right” into a bill, you’ve negated the purpose of the bill and left the door open for endless abuses.
If there’s water on Mars, then there is also life, since water is life. If life cannot survive on the surface, then life exists under the surface–not a life we’re familiar with.
There are no preconditions for talking to or receiving a response from God, unless you create the preconditions.
Re: reincarnation: If you don’t care about the environment and you think that it’s not your problem and nothing horrific will happen in your lifetime, consider the prospect of reincarnation and that you very well may be consigned to return to the planet that you helped leave in shambles.
People ask, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” If you consider disease, tornadoes and earthquakes as punishment for bad behavior I can understand the question. Otherwise, the question is flawed. If you want to explain why bad things happen to good people and to bad people, blame prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. Thinking that good things should happen to good people and bad things should happen to bad people, or even if you just think that bad things shouldn’t happen to you because you’re good and you really don’t care if good or bad things happen to everybody else, then you put yourself into a position of superiority and that’s a prejudice. Practice the five principles, stop assaulting the environment and each other and better things will happen, while enhancing your ability to cope when bad things do happen. If people enslave others, you can indeed blame God; you can blame the God in the people who use their God to dominate others. Tame your own God and the rest of the world will follow suit. It’s human nature to want to be like others. Make sure you’re doing your part to make that happen.
In your churches, temples, mosques and every place where people gather, stop preaching prejudice, whether you think it’s socially justified or not.
Torture. Continuous loud noises at high levels cause neurological damage and can cause seizures. Do the torturers document seizures in CIA prison camps for Congress?
Agreement. If everybody hates war, then why build societies around that which everybody hates. If we all agree that everybody should have food, shelter, clothing, health care, education, transportation and a means to provide all of this, then why do we build societies where only a few are assured these necessities of life? It appears that everybody agreeing is not the path to finding a solution. Time to take out the blueprint.
In negotiations, when you say ‘ouch’ for your neighbor as if you were in their place, you’ve asked for and expected too much for yourself.
Re: Disrespecting someone’s right to privacy in prayer: Sometimes the smallest gestures tell the most about the character of an individual, group or state. When the Israelis opened Barack Obama’s prayer he left at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, and then published it for the world to see, it showed their lack of respect for the privacy of others, and showed a lack of respect for another’s prayer. I’m sure they’ll find some terror related reason for violating someone’s privacy and prayer, but to publish it to the whole world?
Maybe they want to know what everybody else says in prayer too, you know, if they’re at the Wailing Wall, the crying wall, they may want to know what everybody’s crying about. But a deeper concern is the lack of respect in private matters that don’t concern them, a lack of respect for the religions of others. If they think someone’s prayer does concern them, then that’s something they need to work on and it could be one of the reasons why they say everybody hates them. I don’t like people doing that to me, so I guess they know where they stand.
The Israeli perversion of spying on everyone’s personal thoughts is widely practiced in the USA. It was used, and continues to be used, on me and every member of my family. They not only know what I say in my private living space, but what all those in my family say in theirs, in their doctor offices, their work places, everywhere they go. The world doesn’t like snoops, especially when snooping into the really private stuff, the stuff that has no bearing on anything public. They do it for “learning” purposes, says Michael Hayden, CIA director. Well how about “learning” on your own people; how about surveilling on your own multitude of operatives and agents, the big wigs too, to see what they do in their private lives; how about using the text from their surveillance as bases for television shows, movies and articles; how about then manipulating their lives to see how they pop and how they cope; why not use people who snoop on others, people who already signed up for the job? Oh, they’re not talking to God and getting a response? How do you know they’re not? Do you really think they would tell you?
Whoever wins Iowa, wins the primaries. Whoever wins Ohio, so goes the election. That’s not a democracy. Caucuses are not democratic. Every vote in the state doesn’t count, because everybody can’t vote. You begin with a flawed system in Iowa and you end with a flawed system in Ohio. It’s prejudice, it’s superstitious and if Iowa and Ohio, two states out of fifty states, decide the election, that’s a dictatorship.
Young vs old ideologies: The youth in ancient cultures want new. They’re tired of the burden of living in the shadow of their ancestors. Their ancestors lived, fought, died. The younger people want to live, they want to build from the positive of their ancestors, and with new knowledge want to open doors that were closed to their predecessors. They want to live without fighting, and without preordained death. Some cultures fight and die so others may live. The youth don’t want that; they want to be free to reach their potential and live, so that somebody down the road can reach even more than they did. They want to build; they don’t want to keep starting from scratch. They want freedom on earth to be who they are and roam where they feel like roaming. They don’t want to die for the afterlife. They want the total earth experience now, since they may not get that experience again. At the same time, they don’t want to be enslaved by western practices and Israeli ideologies that they see as flawed. They don’t want to be enslaved, period. They don’t want to be pawns or tools used as a means to achieve somebody else’s end. They want new. Fresh. They want tomorrow to be better than today on their terms, not on the terms of a country pointing a nuclear weapon at their heads. ‘Give me liberty or give me death?’ No. “Give me liberty and life.”
Re: creativity: Everyone is creative. Creating is the essence of life and the foundation of evolution. Years ago scientists decided that creative people were less intelligent than everybody else. As a result, everybody went around saying that they weren’t creative, without even being asked. Creative meant less smart than all the truly smart people. In other words, creative people didn’t have to be smart, because they were creative. That’s hogwash. I don’t care if the tests prove it. If the tests prove it, then the tests are flawed. All that effort to make creative people feel inferior through the application of science. All that effort at prejudice, because a bunch of scientists who had the ability to memorize encyclopedic amounts of knowledge were jealous of those who knew how to use that knowledge without memorizing it. They were envious of those freer souls who pushed the boundaries of rote learning. Categorizing people into smart and not smart, creative and not creative is a prejudice based on the insecurities of scientists who design studies in such a way as to prove those prejudices. Don’t brag about being not creative; creative people will think you don’t know much. That’s a prejudice too.
The bible is flawed; all holy books are flawed; all books are flawed. They’re flawed because we’re flawed. Maccabees wrote the bible. The absence of a signature proves that Maccabees wrote it. Maccabees think they’re superior to all other life forms, and others will try to kill them because of it, so they hide behind false names or no names, plastic surgery or other peoples’ religions. The threat of doom if anybody dares change the bible is proof that it’s both subversive and dictatorial. However, God is still in that book–some wise Gods and some misguided Gods gone bad. Because it preaches prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, those parts need to be disregarded. Any book without a signature, without recognition for growth and the evolution of ideas, should not be used as a textbook in any school for the purpose of teaching creationism. Why teach from a flawed textbook knowing that it’s flawed?
The Muslims say, ‘convert to Islam or be destroyed’ or, ‘criticize our religion and we’ll bury you with a bomb’. The Jews say, ‘criticize us and we’ll make your life a living hell, then we’ll bury you with a bomb’. These are glaring examples of religions run amok. Your religions are no better than anybody else’s. With religions like that, no wonder atheism sounds so appealing. Threats like that only demonstrate the insecurities of the people who practice those religions. If your religions were so great, then you wouldn’t need to threaten those who criticize them. If they’re open, accepting, life affirming, you wouldn’t have secret, underground networks. Come out of your caves; the world isn’t as bad as you think. Different people are not so scary in the morning light. Tame the God in you, you know, the one who’s making you fearful of others. Talk back.
Re: China as host of the 20008 Olympics: China is a perfect example of strong individuals making strong groups. China showed not only the best of China to the world, but demonstrated best in the world in handling natural disaster, followed by putting on the most spectacular show on earth. How one country with so many challenges could do all that is a celebration of the individual and the group. Wow! Applause! Applause! It’s unfortunate that the USA television broadcasting networks turned the Olympics into a propaganda and political venue. It wasn’t much fun listening to commentators pick apart China while I was trying to watch history in the making that was uniting the world with a good feeling. It’s been a long time since anybody has cared to unite the world with anything but hate and war. Thank you China. Your artistry and your people were spectacular.
The world learns by example. China’s response to natural disaster put the USA to shame with its response to hurricane Katrina. Not so with hurricane Gustav; the USA wasn’t taking any chances, and threat or not, the USA got people evacuated with a haste and organization that made me proud. This time around, people of America didn’t just pray to God for help, they used the Gods in themselves, across the board of people and organizations, to make their prayers come true. Though they can’t control the storm, they can control their preparation for it and response to it, which will make everybody more capable in coping with the aftermath. Wow. Better safe than sorry. All that effort–even to save one life–was worth it. Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes are living, breathing units of organisms, making one huge organism. It’s no wonder and probably wise to personalize them with names like the Americans do. It helps to reduce the fear, but be careful that you don’t start attaching bad feelings to people who have like names.
Gay is a race. Gay is genetically determined. Gay crosses all social, cultural, economic, color and gender lines. Therefore gays should be protected against discrimination under the constitutions of all nations. You’re already in the USA constitution my little gay babies. According to The American College Encyclopedic Dictionary first copyrighted in 1947 race is defined as follows: “10. any group, class or kind of persons. -Syn. 1. Race, nation, people are terms for a large body of persons who may be thought of as a unit because of common characteristics. People refers to the persons composing a race, nation, tribe, etc., as members of a body with common interests and a unifying culture: we are one people, any people on any continent, the peoples of the world.”
Gender isn’t protected under the USA constitution. Once you get your rights, you might want to fight for somebody else’s rights. That’s what makes for a well-rounded contributing group to society, any society. The Jews fight for Jews; the blacks fight for blacks. Women fight for everybody’s rights. Gays need to get in the fight and work for the rights of others. I’ve opened a door for you, now you do the rest of it.
Some advice: drop your feigned indignation. Gays are some of the most prejudiced people in the world. Look at that.
Re: wanting to march in parades that don’t want to let you in: Keep the dildos off your heads. Nobody wants to see that which should be kept in clubs or private. Stop using drug addicted transvestites to advance your cause. Their unsure nature of who they are makes others think the entire gay issue is an untenable one. Appearances do count. Stop sabotaging yourselves because you think everybody should accept who you are. If a heterosexual came into my house scantily clothed with a dildo on his head, I would feel the same way as I do when I see a gay person do it. I see insecure ‘look at me’ wanting attention for silly instead of substantive behavior, and frankly wouldn’t invite them again. I’d think the straight guy was a pervert, so it’s not unusual for people to think that gays are perverse when they do it. Nobody wants to see replicas of your private parts in public parades. We already know what they look like. That’s why they’re called private. Think boundaries.
Nobody should have to hide who they are. The Jews by hiding who they are set a negative example for the rest of the world. Because the world is still in flux regarding gays, then ‘coming out’ is a decision only the gay individual can make. Note: If someone gets cured from homosexuality, then the person wasn’t homosexual to begin with; they were exploring how the other side lived.
Re: The USA Declaration Of Independence: If all men are created equal really means that all humans are created equal, then amendments to the Constitution regarding people’s rights wouldn’t have been necessary. Women were not included and neither were blacks. The Constitution like any other work is a work in progress. It needs to evolve to encompass the challenges of the twenty-first century, that which the founders could not have fathomed when it was framed. To resist evolution creates a situation whereby a flawed plan creates flawed judgments based on that flawed plan.
Re: Oprah Winfrey: What were you thinking on stage reading that awful poem while endorsing Obama for president? “Don’t call me small? Don’t call me small? Don’t call me small?” What was that guttural sick cow sound coming from your mouth? You looked like a drunkard on skid row, never caught a break, bewildered, long-suffering person begging for acceptance. That’s the complete opposite of the brilliant, famous, influential, beautiful lady billionaire that you are. Nobody thought you were saying that for them. It sickened me to see you rub yourself in the mud with gold oozing from your pores. Grow up. Start treating people with dignity and you might feel less compelled to demean yourself on their behalf. Stand tall, walk tall, talk big, but don’t ever talk like that. If you feel like you sounded, despite all your successes, where’s the hope for the rest of us? I don’t need you to explain, just don’t do it again. Maybe that God awful sound was all the cows on the ‘other side’ trying to say something through you. You know, the ones you went to court over, then abandoned so you could win the suit. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt, since I think they succeeded. “Don’t call me small; don’t call me small; don’t call me small”. You’ve been channeled, girl!
It’s easy to ask others to make our decisions for us when we know we’re not doing what we should be doing. Let somebody else sort it our for us, that way all we have to do is go in at the end and agree or disagree, and you know we’ll disagree, who wouldn’t? It’s time for individuals, groups and nations to become proactive in solving their own problems, finding their own solutions. Israel knows how to solve their own problems. The reason they want the USA and other countries to step in is to get money from them. If you want us to do such and such, what’s in it for us? That’s extortion. So what do we do? That’s a knee jerk, thoughtless question. Figure it out! But we can’t; we don’t know what to do. Then you don’t deserve to be a nation; you’re not capable. If you want the entire world to run Israel, the entire world will, but it won’t be called Israel.
