Thinking Against the Grain

Submitted by taskeinc on June 23rd, 2013

One of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes is, "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction." Our world has had many intelligent, brilliant fools, from Maximilien Robespierre, to Adolf Hitler, to Josef Stalin, and a laundry list of others.

It takes courage, mental, physical, and spiritual strength to go against the sinister global flow. It takes a mind that can think outside the box and stand up to all the opposition that will confront him or her. Some names that come to mind are John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, aka, Mother Teresa, Harriet Tubman, aka "Moses", and Mahatma Gandhi.

John and Robert took on the Illuminati, the International Bankers and the Federal Reserve. Martin took on the Jim Crow South, Nelson went up against Apartheid and S. Africa, Mother Teresa took on global poverty, Ms. Tubman fought vehemently against antebellum slavery, and Gandhi took on the British-ruled India. To say that these people made monumental differences would be a major understatement. These people led the way and showed the world the power of a determined mind; a determined and fearless spirit.

If you believe in something strong enough, and you know that you are morally correct, there is no force that will stand against you. More often than not, in your quest for justice, your desire for truth, you will stand alone, and maybe even be ridiculed. For example, those who believe that 9/11 was an "inside job" are often criticized as being anti-American and unpatriotic. Former Georgia Senator, Cynthia McKinney, was the first public leader to speak out against the US government and then president George Bush in regards to September 11th and she subsequently lost her position, is no longer in politics, and is now described as an "angry black woman." There have also been many cases where a strong aspiration for truth has led to an untimely demise, as was the case with John, Robert, Martin, and Gandhi (although Gandhi was 78 when he was assassinated).

Whether you're ridiculed, ostracized, lose your job, or even your life, "unearned suffering is redemptive." And even though that is a biblical maxim, this is not mentioned in a religious sense because the compensatory part of the phrase lies in strengthening or enhancing the soul. You're graduating from the mundane, evil, petty, ignorant world, and escalating your spirit to a more grandiose experience.

Mathematicians refer to the consistent pattern that appears everywhere in the universe, as the "torus."

The energy in a torus flows in through one end, circulates around its center, and exits out the other side. It's balanced, self-regulating, and always whole.

The universal whirlpool pattern and the flow of energy is the same in an atom, as it is in our solar system. It's the same pattern of life energy. As this energy is released into the universe, little packets of wholeness emerge.

In geometry, a torus is a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three-dimensional space about an axis 'coplanar' with the circle (a set of points in space is 'coplanar' if all the points lie in the same geometric plane).

In layman's terms, you have an entire unit that is self-sufficient within itself.

For example, a tornado and a whirlpool in water, are natural, self-supported, torus mechanisms.

Each of the packets of a torus is made out of its surroundings, but is distinct within it.

The packets are always the same pattern, no matter what size. It is the primary pattern that nature uses for life, which explains the patterns of a spider's web, as well as the patterns of our solar system.

A torus is a self-organizing system at every scale. You can see it in the cross section of an orange, an apple, in the magnetic field around the earth, and around any human being (sometimes referred to as an aura).

In the entire, gargantuan structure of a spiral or whirlpool galaxy, as well as in the structure of a miniscule atom, the tori or toruses, are prevalent. As a matter of fact, the universe can be considered a torus growing factory. As galaxies are born, the multiverse is perpetually expanding.

When you look at the solar system embedded in a galaxy, embedded in a cluster, embedded in a super-cluster, it becomes apparent that we are traveling in a boundless sea of infinite torus flow.

Power of the Pen

Submitted by taskeinc on June 23rd, 2013

Various articles, posts, and forums on the Internet, peak my interest, and give me plenty to write about. None of my comments are vitriolic in nature and are always above board. It's critical that writers do not lash out at individuals who post a comment or question. Your job is to express your opinion in an objective, professional manner, without resorting to name-calling. There is far too much acerbity and disrespect on the web and the negative remarks detract from the article, blog, or forum. It's sad to witness the mindset that exist on the Internet today and it clearly shows the undercurrent of hostility that flows throughout our world.

Can't we all just get along? The answer to this question appears to be a resounding, no. Evidently, as a human race, we can't get along if our lives depended on it. The tragedy of the aforementioned statement is that our lives and our future, actually does depend on whether or not we can get along. The choice is to live together in peace or perish together in turmoil and confusion. As much as I hate to admit, it appears we have chosen the latter.

Through compassion, the power of the pen, and a unified positive voice, we can alter the course of our planet. This will not happen under the prevailing attitude of hate and division. The plethora of hateful remarks viewed daily, online and off, is not who we are as spiritual beings. This is why we have dug such a deep hole for ourselves because we continue to fight one another, and fighting is not characteristic of our spiritual and energetic makeup. The malevolence, disrespect, chicanery, greed, and deceit, is not who we are. Collective consciousness and thought must be on the same accord; the same page.

In the movie, "The Lion King," from the grave, Mufasa told his son Simba (in the powerful voice of James Earl Jones), "You are more than what you have become." This statement is applicable to at least 80% of the people on this planet. The only way to reach our global potential is to individually take heed to the words of Gandhi and, "be the change you want to see in the world."

Catastrophic Christianity

Some catastrophic events in history that have their roots in religion (primarily fundamentalist Muslims and Christians):

  • The Crusades: The first Crusade started around 1095 and was called by Pope Urban II of the Roman Catholic Church. The ninth crusade took place between 1271-1272. The goal of this prolonged "Holy War" was to restore Christian access to the holy places in and near Jerusalem and to defend the Byzantine church against Muslims. Most of the Crusades pitted Christians against Muslims and had a major political, economic, and social impact on western Europe.
  • Genocidal treatment of Native Americans (under the guise of saving souls).
  • 200 years of Slavery (under the guise of saving souls and free labor).
    - Denial of entry to Jewish refugees fleeing death camps (support of Nazi Germany).
  • Financially supporting Adolf Hitler (Prescott Bush, grandfather of GW Bush, companies assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading With The Enemy Act, for his companies financial support of Nazi Germany).

Collusion with a long list of modern despots, including Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. Ever wonder why bin Laden was not found during the Bush presidency? Because the Bush and bin Laden family had business ties, and the U.S. Government was actually protecting the bin Laden family. This is why the only plane not grounded after the 9/11 attacks was the airplane that flew the bin Laden family out of the United States. Would any member of your family be allowed to leave the country if either one was suspected of such a heinous act?

Ever wonder why Saddam Hussein was tried, convicted, censored, and hung, before he could let the world know that he was set up by the American government? This is not to say that he was not guilty, but his partners in crime, turned on him, just as they did with bin Laden, after the Bush presidency.

It may be a bit unfair to link Christianity and the American Government but the two entities are without a doubt, birds of a feather that flock together. Whether you say Muslim extremist or Christian extremist, there is little to no difference whatsoever.

Black Christians in America

Submitted by taskeinc on September 26th, 2013

This article is not for the weak-minded.

Many readers will not like it, and most will not read it. I'm certain to lose Facebook, Bubblews, and other Social Networking associates, but this needs to be stated.

We need to WAKE UP! This author is NOT an Atheist but does not subscribe to religion.

The one major program that holds Black people in America in servitude, and has since its inception, is the "Christian Program."

Early American settlers were Puritans who believed that the Bible was God's true, inerrant law, that provided a plan for living. Based on the writings and teachings of John Calvin, Puritans worked incessantly toward religious 'morals' and societal reform. Their contention was that the Church of England had become a product of man-made doctrines and political struggle.

The Puritans dissented, escaped persecution from church leadership and the King, and brought their evangelical show to America. Most settled in the New England area and formed individual colonies. As they migrated, their numbers increased from 17,800 in 1640 to 106,00 in 1700.

Puritans behavior, actions, and law, were modeled after the New Testament. Their interpretation of bible scriptures was rigid and inflexible.

Massachusetts was the first slave-holding colony in New England, predating the settlement of Massachusetts Bay colony in 1629.

Here are a couple of quotes from the article, "Slavery in Massachusetts" that will help to make this authors point, and we'll move on.

"Puritans generally took the Africans to the West Indies and sold them in exchange for a few experienced slaves, which they brought back to New England."

"As in other maritime colonies of New England, the chief families were among the chief slavers. Cornelius Waldo, maternal great-grandfather of Ralph Waldo Emerson, was a slave merchant on a large scale, a proud importer of, 'Choice Irish Duck, fine Florence wine, negro slaves and Irish butter.' His ship, Africa, plied the Middle Passage packed with 200 black people at a time crammed below-decks, though lethal epidemics of 'flux' sometimes tore through the captives and cut into Waldo's profits."

The fact that Puritans treated black people as property was OK because their Holy Book indicates, in "1 Timothy 6:1-2" ..

(1) "All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that Gods name and our teaching may not be slandered."
(2) "Those who have believing masters should not show them disrespect just because they are fellow believers. Instead, they should serve them even better because their masters are dear to them as fellow believers and are devoted to the welfare of their slaves."

There are a plethora of other scriptures that support slavery so there's no need for "believers" who read this article (most will not of course) to attempt to cherry-pick their way out of this one.

This same religious program dominates the psyche of African American canonist today. It is a mind boggling, historical and hereditary tragedy, to see how the extreme or fundamentalist, "Christian Program" has captured the hearts and minds of so many Black people in America. To the point where, if you knew the true history of that which you worship, you would, or at least you should, be ashamed of yourselves.

Christianity was the religion of the slave-owners, imposed upon the slaves as part of the process of suppression, control, and servitude. This is the primary reason slaves were forbidden to learn how to read.

Black ministers, bishops, and reverends, learned the art of preaching from evangelical schools of antiquity. Although the orthodoxed grandiloquence (aka BS) has been tweaked a bit over the past few decades, pious rhetoric remains unchanged.

Black preachers are promoting the same religion that helped to enslave their ancestors, brought over from Africa.

In a sad ironic twist, the control system of the slave-owners has been taken over by the offspring of former slaves. Talk about keeping yourself in check!

Black ministers are screwing their "flock" financially; fornicating and abusing wives and children, yet parishioners continually and obediently look the other way. They forgive and wait on Jesus. How stupid can you be?

To save a cropped picture from photo cropping software, you must give the newly created image a name. The image above-left was dubbed, "shyt-eating-grin." Look at the expressions of both T.D. Jakes and Eddie Long. Instead of addressing the issues that plague Black America, and this country in general, both clearly appear to be sycophantic brown-nosers.

TD Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long, and several others, you have the platform to make serious change in this country and because you are AFRAID of being ruined financially, you refuse to upset the applecart.

** Caucasian members of the clergy are just as duplicitous as African American ministers, but this author is chastising Black folks because we need to WTF up! Go ahead, "un-friend" me on Facebook, I don't care, because the majority of my "brothers and sisters" need to get their collective, holier-than-thou heads, out of the sand.

In Christian theology, the story of the scapegoat in Leviticus is interpreted symbolically as the self-sacrifice of Jesus who takes the sins of humanity on his own head, after being crucified on a cross.

Another Christian interpretation are the two goats in Leviticus (16:8-10):

"And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat. And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD's lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering. But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness. The first goat represents Christ, whose blood was shed for the sins of the people; the second represents Satan, whose blood was not shed."

"Scapegoating is the practice of singling out any party for unmerited negative treatment or blame." ~ Wikipedia

When problems occur people don't often blame themselves, they inadvertently look for scapegoats to displace their own failures. Avoid resorting to scapegoating at all cost because unfortunately the only person it adversely affects is you. This is a difficult world we live in; a difficult life. A life filled with vicissitudes and hard lessons. That is why we are here - to learn; to grow; to evolve. Blaming others for our self-induced problems is not learning. Assigning a scapegoat only ensures the real possibility of the problem resurfacing later in life, bigger and much more complex than the original.

There are various ways to avoid blaming others but doing so requires an acknowledgment of the problem. Recognize that you are the creator of both the good and bad that occurs in your life. People will quickly accept the good that occurs; "I worked really hard," "I studied for the past few years," "I trained extremely hard." That's all well and good and there's no arguing the fact that hard work equates to positive consequences.

On the flip side, as we accept the good, we must also accept the bad. Conversely, "I didn't work as hard as I should have," "I didn't study hard enough," and "I did not train." The aforementioned are a few of the many reasons why you might fail. Therefore, scapegoating is not valid because the negative results of not putting your "best foot forward" falls on your shoulders.

- Accept Responsibility

We accept responsibility for all the good things that happen in our lives. We gleefully declare, "I did this," "I studied for that," "I prepared for this opportunity for the last several years." The bad things that occur we innocently proclaim, "He did this to me," "She made this happen," "My life would have been a lot better if 'he' didn't treat me this way."

The toughest challenges that we have in life provide the most profound lessons. However, if you resort to scapegoating you will not learn the intended lesson and you have blown an opportunity for spiritual growth.

- Law of Attraction

The "Law of Attraction" can be referred to as "Cause and Effect," "Reaping what you sow," or "karma." This universal law is as real as the "Law of Gravity." The primary difference between the two is that you can clearly see the Law of Gravity at work: throw something up, it will come down. The Law of Attraction is not as clear but just as substantial.

Another cliche that is applicable here is, "you make your bed, you have to lie in it." We attract people, places, and events into our lives by our actions. The seeds that we plant in the way we treat people, the way we treat ourselves, and our daily interactions with people, will come to harvest at some point and time. Therefore, it's important to understand the Law of Attraction as an absolute edict and conduct our lives accordingly.

- Dignity and Pride

If you ever listen to someone complaining about what he or she did to me, how does that make him look? Everyone she encounters hears the same story. This story is embellished more and more each time it's told, for dramatic effect, and to illicit the most amount of sympathy. She looks better and better in the story and he looks more demonic. "Oh what a terrible person he is, and look at what a saint I am." Have a little more dignity and pride, and take the high road. Rather than tell a story that makes you look good and the other person look bad, tell the truth and deal with the consequences without playing the blame game.

- Spiritual Contract

Many people do not believe or understand the concept of "Spiritual Contracts." In a nutshell, this is a divine contract made with certain souls before earthly incarnation. The person that has caused you the most pain in life is a soul that may be a part of your spiritual contract. A soul designated to teach you the lesson of humility, morality, selflessness, materialism, unconditional love, and a variety of other spiritual lessons, based on karmic circumstances.

Source: Sacred Contracts: Awakening Your Divine Potential, by Caroline Myss

- Shared Culpability

Two or more people who come together to form a partnership will share both success and failure. Shared culpability works the same way in business and personal relationships. More often than not, both parties share blame when a union does not work. It's not her fault and it's not his fault. You both did things that added and subtracted to the relationship. If it works out - great; if it fails, write it up as a lesson learned and move on with your life.

Description of God

Submitted by taskeinc on October 01st, 2013

Most definitely, the evangelical reader's first thoughts when viewing the title, will be something along the lines of, "how dare he attempt to write such a blasphemous and irreverent article."

The title doesn't matter, most pious "believers" won't read it anyway.

"John of Patmos" is the purported author of the Book of Revelation (this particular John was said to have been exiled to the island of Patmos by Roman authorities). "John the Apostle" is credited by archaic religious scholars as writing the "Epistles of John," three books in the New Testament that were said to have been written between 85-100.

Early church tradition identified John the Apostle as one of Jesus' Twelve Apostles, so this would make it quite improbable that he was the author of the Epistles. This biblical character is also considered by fundamentalist scholars to be the author of the Gospel of John, Book of Revelation, and other Johannine works in the New Testament.

The biblical character "Daniel" is said to have authored the "Book of Daniel," written about 164 B.C. Once again, contemporary scholars assume the book was written by several authors. The background or theme of the Book of Daniel pertains to the "s in Antioch that the followers of Jesus were first referred to as Christians).

Jewish and Christian tradition suggest that the first five books of the Old Testament, known as the "Pentateuch," were written by Moses "under the inspiration of God." The apocryphal story is that "God inspired Moses to write the truth and prevented him from making any errors."

Liberal theologians assert that the Pentateuch was written by five authors or groups of authors, from diverse locations, over a period of centuries, who all wrote with the goal of promoting religious views during their particular time.

Very few biblical books are the product of a single individual. The books of the Old and New Testaments have been edited and revised myriad times to produce what we see today.

Scriptures in the Christian Holy Book describe God as, "eyes like a flame of fire, on his head are many diadems" (diadem is a type of crown, or ornamental headband worn by Eastern monarchs and others as a badge of royalty). "He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood." What a comforting description from Revelation 19:11-16.

"His clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool, his throne was fiery flames."

Daniel 7:9 Ezekiel 1:26-28 states, "Above the expanse over their heads was what looked like a throne of sapphire, and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man. I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him."

During the 16th and 17th centuries, fear of heretics spreading teachings and opinions that contradicted the Bible, led the Catholic Church to condemn many scientists. Authors who formed theories the Church deemed heretical, their books were forbidden to be read by the public, and placed on the Index of Prohibited Books.

Astronomers and Scientist, Nicholas Copernicus and Galileo Galilei, wrote books that were later banned. Copernicus faced no persecution when he was alive because he died shortly after publishing his book. Galileo was tried by the Inquisition, and sentenced to house arrest for the remainder of his life.

Both scientists held the same theory that the Earth revolved around the Sun, and that not only was the Earth not the center of the universe, it wasn't even the center of our Solar System; the Sun was the center.

The Church disapproved of this theory because the Holy Scriptures state that the Earth is at the center. The Catholic Church viewed Copernicus and Galileo as sinners primarily because their publications proved that the Bible was incorrect.

From AmazingUniverse.info ..

"By the later part of the 16th century, a lone wanderer, ex-friar, and itinerant philosopher, suggested an alternative model of the universe. One that was so far fetched, when its full implications were accessed by the church, he ended up being burned at the stake. His cosmology was one of infinite worlds, both large and small. His philosophy, one of love and acceptance, his name, Giordano Bruno."

"It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people."

~ Giordano Bruno

When you ask the general "believing" public about the appearance of God, you typically get vague responses like:

"I know, love, and have an intimate relationship with God, and that is enough for me."

"The image of God to which you surrender in moments of greatest trembling will tell you about who you are."

"I realized that nothing I believed about how God looks ever mattered." "What the Gods really look like is how they appear to you." "God looks like the loving Christ."

Source: http://patheos.com

Believer or non-believer, the entity we know as God, the Divine Intelligent Presence in the multi-verse, from all the stories, has been given a human image; has been ascribed, over the millennia, characteristics of Man. Such as, a "jealous God," "a vengeful God," "a punishing God," and one who has favorites, or a "chosen people." Clearly these are characteristics of Man.

Human Beings reside in a galaxy called the Milky Way. One spiral galaxy amidst trillions upon trillion of galaxies that make up the visible universe (that's only 5% of what's out there). Does the bearded Caucasian God oversee this one "pale blue dot" called Earth?

You'll never hear your minister talk about other intelligent beings in our own galaxy and beyond. You'll never read miraculous stories of a being from the Andromeda Galaxy, "walking on water."

Do you ever wonder why the book that is considered the "Be all that ends all" so conveniently overlooks the cosmos? I certainly do.

Stop Drinking

Submitted by taskeinc on August 10th, 2013

A hangover is your body's way of telling you that the liquids you consumed the night before, do not coincide with what's supposed to go in your body.

The effects of a hangover are dehydration, headache, fatigue, body aches, vomiting, and temporary or permanent memory loss.

Excessive alcohol consumption has been associated with an increased risk of liver disease, heart failure, cancer, and bodily injury. Alcohol and cardiovascular disease are the leading cause of death in industrialized countries.

Ethanol is the intoxicating agent in alcohol that gives it its potency; it is what gets you drunk. You may want to consider that many oil companies blend their fuels with 10% gasoline to 90% ethanol and this concoction can be used in any internal combustion engine. This is what is causing your inebriation.

Ethanol is also known as: pure alcohol, grain alcohol, ethyl alcohol, or drinking alcohol. It is a "psychoactive drug that produces a state known as alcohol intoxication."

A psychoactive drug or psychotropic, is a "chemical substance that crosses the blood-brain barrier and acts primarily upon the central nervous system where it affects brain function, resulting in alterations in perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, and behavior. ~ Wikipedia

Now that you are aware of what you're consuming, does it not make sense to stop drinking? People often give the excuse of drinking "socially", or "to relax." If you need a mind-altering substance to relax, truth be told, you have bigger problems than what's on the surface.

Furthermore, if you attend a sporting event, visit a night club, bar, or restaurant, alcohol is usually the highest price beverage on the menu. Therefore, you're paying large amounts of money to drink ethanol, that could wreak havoc on your body, cause you to make horrific decisions, and ultimately lead to a premature, agonizing, untimely demise.

The Edge of the Universe

Submitted by taskeinc on August 07th, 2013

Traveling at the speed of light - 186,000 miles per second - starting from planet Earth, we will reach the Sun in 8 minutes 19 seconds. After 5 hours 30 minutes, we've passed Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and its companion moon.

We have traveled more than 3.5 billion miles, to the outer edges of our Solar System. Still moving at the speed of 186,000 miles per second, we now travel in a vertical direction away from our planetary system. Glancing in the rear view mirror, we can no longer see the Earth's solar system.

After 5 years, we reach Alpha Centauri, the nearest star to our solar system. Our journey has now taken us more than 25 trillion miles and we've really only just begun. We are 10 light-years from the Sun. One light year is equivalent to just under 6 trillion miles.

100 light-years from the Sun, we can now view the patterns of gas and nebulous that form the arms of our Milky Way galaxy. 1000 light years away, our galaxies arms and disks become more defined. However, we will not see the entire spiral shape of the Milky Way until we have traveled at the speed of light for 100,000 years (see image to the right).

From this point forward, each point of light is no longer one star, but an entire galaxy consisting of billions and trillions of stars (see Hubble Extreme Deep Field-XDF).

-- 5 million years of traveling at 186,000 miles per second, the Milky Way is now seen as part of a cluster of 30 other galaxies, referred to as the "Local Group."

-- 50 million light-years from Earth (and remember, that would be 50 million multiplied by 6 trillion miles) we come across the Virgo cluster which houses more than 2000 galaxies.

Our trip continues as we pass cluster after galactic cluster (each cluster contains thousands of galaxies). We travel for one billion years, 5 billion years, and finally, after 10 billion years we will get a theoretical glimpse of the universe, consisting of countless billions of galaxies, separated by humongous regions of empty space.

As quoted from "Cosmic Awakening", "the universe is a spectacular tapestry, so vast and diverse in its design, that the power of its Creator must truly surpass all human understanding."

Fear of Dying

Submitted by taskeinc on September 18th, 2013

Billions of people from across the globe have a tremendous fear of death. It’s been said that the fear of dying is second to the fear of public speaking. This is a rather odd statistic considering the consequences of failing at public speaking compared to the consequences of losing one’s life.

The colossal trepidation surrounding death is heightened by the plethora of ridiculous religious stories that most people have heard, and read about all their lives.

If a thorough study is done on what’s considered a morbid topic, you will clearly see that your fears are unwarranted. What you will come across in your research, is the fact that a large percentage of the human body is made of carbon, water, and nitrogen. Each of these elements are part of a planetary recycling process. In other words, as long as this planet is here, then you, or your energy, will be a part of that recycling process.

In our purest state we are energy. Energy moves into form, through form, and out of form, and the process starts anew. You also might want to consider the strong probability that once you understand and graduate from this earthly matrix, your energy could very well transition to any one of sextillions of other planets that harbor intelligent, thinking beings.

Hundreds of thousands of people have had what is referred to as near-death experiences. The majority of the individuals who have had this marvelous opportunity, have all stated that they did not want to return to this earthly dimension.

Regardless of what they had going on in their lives at the time, many pleaded with this loving being of light, with a personality, to remain in it’s loving presence. Most of the unwilling participants (because most actually lost their physical lives temporarily) also mentioned that the brief trip through the tunnel was not scary at all and it was familiar. It was familiar because we’ve all made that particular trip hundreds if not thousands of times.

Whether you believe you’ve made the trip or not, remember your body is carbon, nitrogen, and water, which has recycled for billions of years, so why wouldn’t you? The same length of time that water and carbon and nitrogen has been on this earth, that’s the same length of time that your energy has been here, in various forms.

In summation, there is no such thing as death. Certainly the human body will meet some type of ending, but because it is the vessel used to navigate this earthly landscape, you will clearly see that the body is simply discarded as one would throw away an old, used glove.

At this point of your existence, there is no longer a need for a physical body.

Failed lessons that were not comprehended, along with karmic consequences, will be addressed in another physical incarnation.

The hell, fire and brimstone stories leaves various questions unanswered. The one question that no one seems to be able to answer or care to answer is, if energy does not burn and cannot be destroyed, where does the eternal pain and suffering come from?

If we are indeed eternal beings then your eternity did not start on the date of your physical birth nor will it end on the date of your physical demise.

Choose Battles Carefully

Submitted by taskeinc on September 11th, 2013

Credit for the inspiration of "Choose Your Battles Carefully" goes to Gloriawatkins777 .. A comment I made on one of her very interesting post is what inspired the title and motivated me to write this article.

As a kid I was painfully shy and would not speak up for myself. It didn't help my confidence any when I was a character witness in a school play in the 6th grade. My only line was (and yes I remember it like it was yesterday), "Mr. Whoever - don't recall the characters name - is a very reputable man in the community." For the life of me, I could not say the word REPUTABLE. I tried a few times but it simply would not roll off the tongue. Needless to say, as an 11-year-old kid, I was devastated.

Weeks later, some of the other kids would not allow me to forget this most embarrassing moment at Pearl C. Anderson Middle School, as they teased me relentlessly. Their harassment was not on the scale of bullying, it was relatively mild, but their verbal taunts stung, nonetheless.

Throughout my teens and into my early 20's, I battled timidity.

In my mid-twenties, I began to pray and affirm, "I am not shy or nervous around anyone, regardless of who they are and what they do for a living."

Every single night, that would be my mantra.

In my late 20's, I somehow stumbled across the Toastmasters Organization, and within a year, my bashfulness was a thing of the past.

Gone were the days of people taking advantage of me. Co-workers and associates could no longer say anything to me and get away with it. If anyone said one word to me, that I deemed to be disrespectful or out of line, I would immediately challenge their statement. This would often lead to arguments, that I would win (at least I thought so). I even went so far as to read a book written by celebrated attorney, Gerry Spence, entitled, "How To Argue and Win Every Time." His book still sits on my bookshelf today. Gerry Spence, at 84 years of age, is still recognized as one of the greatest trial lawyers of all time.

Anyway, I'm challenging everything people say and do, not just at work, but in the grocery store, and various other public places.

One thing about life, if you pay close attention, the universe will teach you the lessons you need to learn before your actions get the best of you. If you're not paying attention, more often than not, your inattentiveness will cost you dearly.

-- Lesson # 1: While in the grocery checkout line, with my then, 6-year-old daughter, she asked, "Daddy, why are you always so angry when we are waiting in line?" I was bemoaning the fact that the line was moving too slow, as usual. Her question caught me off guard because I realized that if a 6-year-old was aware of how foolish I looked, there was a need for me to take a look in the mirror.

-- Lesson # 2: I'm about to go off on someone at work who I felt had dissed' me. I'm fired up, ready to verbally rip this person to shreds and one of my respected cohorts made a very simple request. She stated, "you should choose your battles carefully." What she meant was, is this situation really worth arguing over? Is it really necessary for you to take this on, or would it be wise to just let it go?

The beauty of the universe as our instructor is the fact that, if we learn the intended lesson the first go-round, we will not have to deal with the same lesson when it comes back around. If you encounter the same lesson, a few years down the road, it's going to be much more difficult to comprehend and the consequences a great deal more dire than before.

Therefore, choose your battles carefully, and learn how to be more tactful in the way you deal with others.

Help From Elsewhere

Submitted by taskeinc on September 11th, 2013

Fortitude, awareness, stick-intuitiveness, holding your head up high, basically, not giving up. Alongside those words, from a moral perspective, is treating people as best you can; like you want to be treated.

You can call it "The Golden Rule" or the "Ethic of Reciprocity", you can call it what you want. Some people would call karmic or divine grace as having a relationship with a deity.

This author is not a subscriber to any religion, or religious stories, so neutrality is the order of the day. Regardless of who told the story or how far back its origin, it's still a story told by someone other than the intelligent consciousness that orchestrates our universe.

There are times (if you're dotting your "i's" and crossing your "t's", which represents the aforementioned requirements needed to overcome trials and tribulations) you will experience situations where you are aware of the fact that you're getting help from elsewhere. Not going to say, "help from above" because that aligns with many of the apocryphal fables.

There is a positive energy that surrounds you; that assist you, usually when you need it the most. At times it's unexpected; as you get a nudge here and there, to help you along your earthly path.

A personal example, my power went out this morning and I was a bit perturbed because it was a beautiful, sunny morning, very few clouds in the sky, and the electricity goes out throughout my neighborhood. So I figure, "oh well, since the power is out, I may as well walk my 2 miles around the sub-division." Two miles is equivalent to walking around twice.

As I was dictating this article, there were a flock of Geese grazing in someone's yard. I paused the voice memo, took a couple of pictures, to add to this article, in order to highlight the beauty and serenity of the day. In other words, there's no clear reason for the power to be out.

I'm frustrated so walking is a good way to walk it off. I end up in a rather lengthy conversation with a neighbor, turns out to be a very productive one. This would not have occurred if the power is on. The power actually came back on while we were talking but since I was geared up to walk I decided to continue around the sub-division.

I make the mile walk, get back to my house, and I'm thinking, "I am going around a second time, may as well get in two miles." Except, my conscious mind received a nudge from my super-subconscious mind that said, "you'd better go inside for a second."

I went inside and low and behold, the pot on the stove was boiling. I had totally forgot about the fact that I was preparing a meal when the power went out. My stove is all electric so with the power down, as soon as it's restored, the burner comes right back on. If I would have made that second mile without coming inside, just for a moment, I would have returned to smoke and a potential blaze in my kitchen.

We all have stories like this and others that are much more detailed, more concrete, that helps us to understand the fact that we're not in this alone. We are getting assistance from a certain energy or energies. You can align it with a Christian story, a Muslim story, a Buddhist story, and even a Hare Krishna story, whatever floats your boat.

 SkyView and the Milky Way

Submitted by taskeinc on September 12th, 2013

SkyView is an amazing app that accurately displays celestial objects on your iPod, iPad, or iPhone.

You can easily locate planets, stars, and constellations that orbit planet Earth. The app can be used indoors or outdoors. When an object appears on the screen, tap it and you read more facts about it and the times it will be visible. When an arrow appears, follow the arrow by moving your device in the direction of the arrow.

Use the search feature to search for celestial planets, stars, galaxies, and more. Once found, the arrow will direct you to its location in the sky.

How cool is that?

When you see a track (a 2/8th to 1/4th inch line) behind an object, this shows you where and when a selected body will appear and what time it can be observed.

Turn your device to landscape mode and it will display real time azimuth (altitude and azimuth are used to describe the location of an object in the sky, viewed from a particular location at a particular time).

Touch the information panel at the bottom of the screen to get detailed information about a selected object.

A built in gyroscope on your device, once calibrated, allows you to accurately measure where it's pointed. This can be done at any time by going to 'Settings' (the wrench icon in the top left corner) to calibrate the gyroscope for enhanced precision.

There are some very interesting stories behind many of the constellations. For example, Canes Venatici (image to the left) is a small northern constellation, named in the 17th century. The name is Latin for "hunting dogs", and the constellation is often depicted in illustrations as representing the dogs of Bootes the Herdsman, a neighboring constellation.

Canes Venatici contains five Messier objects (Messier objects are a set of astronomical objects first listed by French astronomer Charles Messier in 1771) and four galaxies. So when I took that snapshot on 09/12/13, included in this one patch of night sky, were four galaxies. This is phenomenal stuff!

The beauty of SkyView and what you'll be able to observe is that you can actually take a snapshot and share it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or via email. The images included in this article are cropped pictures taken from my iPod Touch.

Just a few minutes ago I took a snapshot of the image to the right. From left to right you see Saturn, Venus, the Space Station, and Mercury. Above the planets is the constellation Virgo.

Years ago, if I would have know astronomy was this darn interesting I'd be an astrophysicist today. We live in an amazing universe.

A universe in which all the explorations that have been accomplished thus far, doesn't even scratch the surface as to what's out there.

 Follow The Money

Submitted by taskeinc on July 18th, 2013

If the new energy technologies were to be set free worldwide, the change would be profound, it would be applicable everywhere. These technologies are the most important thing to happen in the history of the world, and they are being suppressed.

The technology is real, but the Inventors are being intimidated, ridiculed, and even murdered. Canadian John Hutchinson created free energy batteries and also used Nikola Tesla's theories to counter gravity; to make objects float. This type of discovery would revolutionize the field of propulsion.

Hutchinson's lab was raided and equipment was taken by police and government officials in 1978, 1989, and in 2000. Dr. Eugene Mallowe, MIT and Harvard Engineer, and New Energy Scientist, and editor of +Infinite-Energy-Magazine. In 2004, Dr. Mallove was mysteriously beaten to death.

In 1974, Inventor John Bedini began working with Tesla's theories of radiant energy, announced that he was going to start offering them at low cost. Soon afterwards he was attacked in his lab and warned not to produce the devices. He discontinued marketing devices that produced free energy, for his own safety.

If these Inventors are charlatans and quacks, why are they being silenced? Who stands to gain by concealing the fact that free energy is available and can save our planet?

Physicist and Inventor Adam Trombly states, "major military people who put their life and liberty on the line, have stated that ET's and UFO's are real. However, the Military Industrial Complex does not want their statements to be made public because then we would begin to think about the technology behind it. In other words, you begin to wonder why Intelligent beings from other galaxies, have no problems reaching our planet, but we can't reach them. We could if all the secrets were disclosed and made available to us.

The suppression of UFO phenomenon works hand-in-hand with the suppression of free energy. Energy is extracted from the space around us, that comes directly from the Sun, which means it cannot be metered. This is a direct threat to the largest industry in the world - Energy. Which means goodbye Exxon Mobil, goodbye Oil (which is what many wars for profit are fought over), goodbye coal, goodbye linear transmission of energy - through power lines, it's all gone because it would be no longer necessary. Because Energy is a 200 trillion dollar industry, this is why the Inventors of free energy devices are being silenced.

The claim is that there are no better, less expensive alternatives, is no more than a colossal ruse. The infinite energy of the universe can be tapped into by aligning harmoniously with nature.

Nature that we do not have dominion over (the authors of the bible have mislead you) because we are an equal part of that nature. Interstellar civilizations understand how they are one with their environment. They are far more advanced than the human race, primarily because they use technologies that interface with consciousness and thought, and we don't.

So whose wealth and power are threatened by access to clean, free energy? To find the answer, lets follow the money trail. Who has the motive to set up a world where so few have so much and the majority has so little?

As long as we are dependent on oil, Energy corporations can continue to reap enormous profits. These corporations have enough money and influence to suppress anything that might threaten their monopoly. Who is behind the huge energy corporations. In 1870, John D. Rockefeller became the world's first billionaire when he founded Standard Oil.

The Rockefellers control our food as well. Petroleum based agriculture provided vast new profits for the Oil Industry but never lived up to its promise of ending hunger and promoting health.

In two crucial areas, energy and food, the same elite banking families and their corporations have taken control, and the consequences have been devastating.

The Rockefellers also created the National Educational Association with assistance from the Carnegie and Ford Foundations. The captains of industry wanted from our schools was an obedient and docile workforce. To teach us to respond by reflexes, to anyone in authority that tells us what to do, which is one reason why religion is so powerful. The education industry is primarily funded by pharmaceutical companies so the motive is to sell as many drugs as possible. That's why every other child has some form of ADD and is popping Ritalin pills like candy.

"Who controls the food supply, controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls the money can control the world."

Apocrypha, Parents, and Religion

Submitted by taskeinc on September 17th, 2013

Apocrypha is defined as "various early Christian writings proposed as additions to the New Testament but rejected by the major canons," and, "writings or statements of unknown authorship."

"Obscurity of origin," implies that any book or religious text of questionable authenticity is considered to be apocryphal.

"Antilegomena" refers to written texts whose authenticity or value is disputed. Before the fifth century, the Christian writings that were under discussion for inclusion in the Bible, but had not been accepted were classified as the "ancient antilegomenae."

A biblical canon is a list of books considered to be authoritative scripture by a particular religious community. First coined in reference to scripture by Christians, the word "canon," is defined as a "rule" or "measuring stick."

Apocryphal writings are considered to be of dubious veracity but may contain moral wisdom. Metaphorically, apocrypha, suggests a claim based on folklore, specious statements, and urban legend.

Unfortunately, religion is replete with apocryphal texts ascribed to an invisible deity. Because of their strong faith, followers and believers of such sanctimonious rhetoric, refuse to do any research that would lead to contrasting conclusions.

Hereditary brainwashing is a major factor in historical evangelical duplicity and benightedness.

Fundamentalist parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, who were raised on religious fables, customs, and myths, will be, and have always been, more supportive of their respective faiths and beliefs, than their very own offspring. This explains why members of the clergy have, for centuries, been able to get away with colossal abuse of children.

Most long-standing church members, past the age of 40, have true stories to tell about child abuse, neglect, and disrespect.

The elephant in the sanctuary is the fact that most have witnessed the ethical ineptitude and blatant perversion of the leaders of the church. Devout parishioners, who finance corrupt ecclesiastics with their tithes and offerings, do absolutely nothing about it, except to sit idly by and wait on the return of an apocryphal savior.

Alcohol vs. Cannabis

Submitted by taskeinc on September 10th, 2013

The jury is still out on whether or not Cannabis is detrimental. We do however, know that it is a plant, and many plants placed on this earth by some sort of universal intelligence, have a positive purpose. For example, one plant that I use consistently, internally and externally, is the Aloe Vera plant, aka, "the miracle plant."

America's drug of choice is alcohol. The intoxicating agent in alcohol is ethanol. Ethanol is a mixture found in gasoline. Alcohol is linked to 75,000 U.S. deaths a year.

From the National Council on Alcoholism: Harmful use of alcohol results in the death of 2.5 million people annually, causes illness and injury to millions more, and increasingly affects younger generations and drinkers in developing countries.

It's rather odd that no government agency in this country or abroad, is pushing for the elimination of the sale of such a historically dangerous drug as alcohol. It's far too much money involved.

We can't lay the global problem associated with alcoholism at the feet of the various governments because of the adage, "you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink." It's our responsibility.

In my article entitled "Stop Drinking" .. www.bubblews.com/news/928891-stop-drinking .. as of 09/10/2013, there are 142 views, 34 'likes' and ironically, no comments. There are no comments because, no matter what facts are presented, the majority has to have their alcohol fix.

It's not the authors intent to be critical of others, or to appear "holier than thou." The purpose of this article is to point out the need to understand what you're doing and the effects your actions have on yourself and others. There was a time in my life where I was a serious binge drinker. Fortunately, I didn't kill anyone and lived to comprehend the deleterious effects of alcohol. That's why I stopped drinking a couple of years ago and why I write about it today.

Hook, Line, and Sinker

Submitted by taskeinc on July 18th, 2013

The Hook, Line and Sinker are the three essential pieces needed for fishing (recruiting). The hook itself can be dressed with lures or bait (heaven or nirvana).

Modern fishing lines are made from artificial substances (eloquent, articulate, motivational, compelling, members of the clergy). A sinker is "a weight used when angling to force the lure or bait to sink more rapidly or to increase the distance that it may be cast" (proliferation of "The Greatest Story Ever Told").

The Etymology of the idiom, "Hook, Line, and Sinker, is predicated on the premise of a fish that is so hungry, it will swallow the hook (the part that catches the fish), the line (the string), and the sinker (a weight attached to the line to keep it under water). In other words, the fish will consume the whole darn thing.

It is not the author's intent to offend anyone. Such an austere admonition pertaining to religion, is rarely applauded. When these type articles are posted to my Facebook wall, my "Friend-count" usually decreases. It doesn't matter, because it is my moral obligation, duty, and privilege to expose the fruad of the age.

The Perry Index is an index of "Aesop's Fables" or "Aesopica", consisting of 589 fables credited to Aesop, the story-teller who lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BC.

~ Photo credit: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/63/Aesop_pushkin01.jpg/220px-Aesop_pushkin01.jpg

Proverbial titles such as, "The Ant and the Dove" (one good turn deserves anoher), "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" (appearances are deceptive), "The Seagull and the Kite" (mind your own business), "The Serpent and the Eagle" (one good turn deserves another), and so many others, have found their way in medieval and modern literature, under assumed titles and themes.

Much of the parabolic wisdom, prevalent in the Holy Bible, are literary replicas of Aesop's fables. The Bible was written over a 1500-year time frame, by at least 40 different authors, and collated (assembled or put together) by approximately 300 churchmen in 325AD. The final authority on which of the 66 books (39 books make up the Old Testament, and 27 books comprise the New Testament) to be included, was the responsibility of Emperor Constantine.

- Here are a couple of similarities between biblical scriptures and Aesop's fables.

-- Luke 7:31-32 ..

"Jesus went on to say, To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other: We played the pipe for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not cry."

** See Aesop's Fable, "The Fisher" .. taleswithmorals.com/aesop-fable-the-fisher.htm

Luke was not an eye-witness of Jesus' ministry, but wrote his gospel in or around 60AD, purportedly, "after gathering the best sources of information within his reach" (Luke 1:1-4).

-- Matthew 7:15 ..

"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves."

** See Aesop's Fable, "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" .. taleswithmorals.com/aesop-fable-the-wolf-in-sheep%27s-clothing.htm

Matthew the Apostle was born, Israel Capernaum. His date of death is listed as 34AD. Capernaum's 'Book of Matthew' is based on three main sources:

(1) Gospel of Mark.
(2) Hypothetical collection of sayings known as the Q source - "Q source" is an apocryphal collection of sayings attributed to Jesus.
(3) Material unique to his own community - a community that existed 1,979 years ago.

There are numerous other similarities between what Aesop wrote and scriptures in the Bible, Qur'an, Torah, and a few other holy books, but listing more would be counterproductive to the premise of this article.

-- Fables versus Scriptures ..

Photo credit: themagazine.ca/2011/06/06/best-talking-animals

Aesop .. "Did a mouse really gnaw through the ropes of a captured lion to repay the lion for not eating him?" .. Probably not

Joshua 10:13 .. So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.

Did God keep the Sun in the sky for a full day - 24 hours - so war could continue? .. Probably not

Numbers 22:28 .. Then the Lord opened the donkey's mouth, and it said to Balaam, "What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?"

Did a donkey actually speak? .. Probably not

The point: as far-fetched as Aesop's fables are, so too are a plethora of scriptures. Certainly there is anthropomorphism, allegories, and fables throughout the holy books, but many of these apocryphal myths are literally interpreted, and taken to be the infallible word of God.

The more you begin to investigate, what you think you know, the more you will begin to see fabrications everywhere. You'll be amazed at what you find when you begin to seek the truth by studying the laws of physics, science, astronomy, zero-point energy, and relativity.

Research why and how planets rotate around the Sun; and why there are trillions of other planetary systems similar to our Solar System, that have a primary star, like our Sun, that has planets rotating around it as well. Find out what the contrasting hypothesis was between astronomers whose findings disagreed with the Church, such as Galileo Galilei, and Giordano Bruno.

Why did the Church condemn Galileo to house arrest for the remainder of his life, and why was Giordano Bruno burned alive?

Aren't you the least bit curious about these things? Or do you want to continue to bury your head in literature written over 2000 years ago, supposedly inspired by a multidimensional entity, written from a three-dimensional, benighted and medieval perspective? Man's futile attempt to delineate God, is tantamount to a fish defining water.

Observing the Andromeda Galaxy

Submitted by taskeinc on July 07th, 2013

For you stargazers out there, finding the Andromeda Galaxy is an exciting undertaking. Also known as M31, this galaxy spans 200,000 light years across (200,000 x 6 trillion miles) and is bright enough to be seen by the naked eye on clear, moonless nights. Andromeda is the only other spiral galaxy, other than our Milky Way, that can be seen with the naked eye.

Viewing this gargantuan part of the night sky with binoculars or a telescope, is even more tantalizing, because you can see the elliptical shape of the galaxy. An elliptical galaxy is the larger of the three main classes of galaxies, originally described by Edwin Hubble (Hubble Telescope) in his book, "The Realm of the Nebulae (1936)", the other two galaxy-types are the spiral and lenticular galaxies. The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy.

Andromeda passes high overhead during the fall of the Northern Temperate Zone of the Earth (majority of the world's population lives within the Northern or Southern Temperate Zones - 4-8 months out of the year where temperatures average more than 50 degrees Fahrenheit). The North Temperate Zone includes Great Britain, Europe, northern Asia, North America and northern Mexico. The South Temperate Zone includes southern Australia, New Zealand, southern South America and Southern Africa. ~ Wikipedia

In mid-October, Andromeda crosses the deep night sky around midnight and close to 10pm each month thereafter. In September, Andromeda is fully visible, it rises in the east and begins to set in the west in February.

Every star resides in one constellation or the other. Some stars share two constellations. The Great Square of Pegasus, close to the Cassiopeia constellation, sits between Andromeda and Pegasus. In Greek mythology, Andromeda is the daughter of Cepheus (Aethiopian king) and Cassiopeia.

Viewing through a telescope, use the lowest power because you will not be able to capture it in your field of view. Using an 8 or 12" scope, you'll be able to see the nucleus, the outer disk, and two companion galaxies.

Start at NE corner of Pegasus. The Andromeda constellation forms a handle attached to the NE corner of the bowl formed by the "Great Square."

Find the last star at the end of the handle (second brightest star in the handle), make a 90 degree turn to line that joins the stars of the two handles. The second star in the second handle is the Andromeda Galaxy.

What you are seeing is an entirely different galaxy, about 2.5 million light years away (2.4 million multiplied by 6 trillion), made up of about 400 billion stars, and many of those stars are bigger and more luminous, than our closest star, the Sun.

Barking Up The Wrong Tree

Submitted by taskeinc on July 30th, 2013

Like all presidents preceding him, Obama can only do so much. The United States president and leaders across the globe, are controlled by the Illuminati.

I'm left to wonder why erudite individuals pretend not to see this, or act as if they do not understand the power of the "Invisible Hand."

The Illuminati cares nothing about race, gender, or the global population at large. The "power behind the throne" only cares about controlling people and dominating the world financially.

Kennedy speaks about the Illuminati: youtu.be/xhZk8ronces

Mayer Rothschild, patriarch of the Rothschild clan, stated in the late 1700's, "give me control of a nation's money supply and I care not who makes her laws."

It doesn't matter what you label this group of evil men, but they certainly do exist. They are the Bilderbergers (European elite, who meet in secret to manufacture and manage world events), the "13 bloodlines of the Illuminati" ..

Astor, Bundy, Collins, DuPont, Freeman, Kennedy, Li, Onassis, Reynolds, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Russell, and Van Duyn.

Former president John F. Kennedy (pictured right) would not have been included as he attempted to circumvent this group by creating Executive Order 11110, an order to issue "Silver Certificates."

In the book, "Crossfire", author Jim Marrs suggested that Kennedy attempted to "rein in the power of the Federal Reserve", and that "forces opposed to such action played a role in his assassination." Marrs further states, "the issuance of Executive Order 11110 was an effort by Kennedy to transfer power from the Federal Reserve to the United States Department of the Treasury by replacing Federal Reserve Notes with Silver Certificates."

Couple the absolute power of the Illuminati (because they control the money), with very deep and historical religious brainwashing (which divides people like no other institution in the history of humankind), and you have what we see today, 7.5 billion people being manipulated by approximately 300 men.

At any moment Dr. King's life could have been taken, but it wasn't until he began to speak out on the Vietnam War that he was assassinated. His stance against the war raised the brow of the Illuminati and is what really cost him his life, not his fight for minorities and the poor. His civil rights stance didn't help of course, but that is not what caused his assassination.

Additionally, the King family acknowledged, before the accused killer of Dr. King died, that they believed James Earl Ray did not kill their father. His murder was a conspiracy and the real killers went unpunished just as the assassins of President Kennedy avoided justice. Many other civil rights leaders were assassinated as well, but all were killed by right-wing racist fanatics like a Byron De La Beckwith (Medgar Evers killer) or a Bobby Frank Cherry (the murderer of the "4 Little Girls" in the 16th Baptist Church bombing of 1963), not the United States government.

It's past time to begin to collectively speak out against the real perpetrators. Look at America's history of manufactured wars; Iraq being a prime example. Very few people are willing to address the fact that 9/11 was an inside job.

Many people are still appalled when they hear this, but all you have to do is check the facts and you will clearly see that both towers (including Bldg # 7) were imploded.

Aside from Alex Jones, David Icke, and a few others, who has the courage to attack the Illuminati? Who has the courage to scream for justice regarding 9/11?

Politicians and religious leaders steer clear of these topics because they are keenly aware of the strong possibility that their reputations and careers would be destroyed. The golden goose would be no more.

It's time to go after the head, not the tail. The tail will always grow back, often stronger than before.

The irony of the evangelical attempts to make a difference, is the fact that "faith" makes it virtually impossible to be objective and verisimilitude goes out the window. The Catholic Church and various other Christian based institutions have been a corrupt force for the past 2000 years. Very few people have the bravery, or the intellectual savvy to challenge them, primarily because "faith" gets in the way.

As the late astronomer, author, Carl Sagan stated in "Pale Blue Dot", "In our obscurity - in all this vastness - there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves." Trying to address the issue of the Illuminati with, "waiting of Jesus to return", and clean it all up, is futile. We've waited over 2000 years, and if you were to live another 2000 years, you would still be waiting.

Our predicament is mind boggling because the brainwashing is so entrenched, so ingrained in our society that we will never see the tides turn in this lifetime.

The President of the United States is considered the most powerful man in the world but that is not the case. On paper he may be considered powerful, but we all know this is not true.

Former US President, G. W. Bush, for 8 years, probably wielded more power than any other before him primarily because of his pedigree. His late grandfather, Prescott Bush, helped to finance Nazi Germany, George Bush Sr., before he became president was the head of the American Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.), brother Jeb Bush was governor of Florida when GW Jr., 'thugged' his way into the White House.

No other president could have cheated his way into the Oval Office, and get away with it, if he did not have some powerful strings working on his behalf. No other president could declare war against the desires of the United Nations and get away with it, unless he has some very strong ties to the Illuminati. Let Obama declare war against the wishes of the U.N. and see how fast he's impeached.

There is one exception, if the "Invisible Hand" needs a war for profit, then Obama would be manipulated, cajoled, and coerced into declaring war. If he did not comply, he would suffer the same fate as JFK and Abraham Lincoln.

President Kennedy and Lincoln, challenged the Illuminati and both were assassinated. After Kennedy's assassination, the Illuminati further flexed its muscles by murdering accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald was shot at point blank range, in a Dallas, TX police station, while being transferred to a maximum security jail.

Oswald was shot in a police station with hundreds of people standing around. Even if the bullet didn't kill Oswald, he would not have made it out of Parkland Hospital alive (see the video: youtu.be/0xU7Lhd7Wwo).

Religion, politics, and mind control, are past, present, and consistent bedfellows. We must take a u-turn on the road we are traveling on and forge our way back to the universal truth.

A truth that clearly states that we must learn to live together or we will perish together. If one-third of the 7.5 billion people on this planet, unite as one, what chance does those 300 men have?

The first part of Wikipedia's definition of the word "fear" is "an emotion induced by a perceived threat which causes entities to quickly pull far away from it and usually hide."

The second part of the interpretation is, "a basic survival mechanism occurring in response to a specific stimulus, such as pain or the threat of danger." Fear is the primary reason the majority of the 7 billion people on this planet are controlled by approximately 300 men.

First and foremost, is the fear of death. A large percentage of the biological makeup of the human body is carbon, water, and nitrogen. All these elements have been part of an interminable process of regeneration, for billions of years, and so have you, in some form.

The purest state of our being is energy. Energy can never be destroyed, it moves into form (birth), through form (life), and out of form (death), and the cycle repeats itself.

Victor Frankl, a psychotherapist who survived Auschwitz, tells in the book, "Mans Search for Meaning", this wonderful story:

Death in Teheran: a story about fear ..

"A rich and mighty Persian once walked in his garden with one of his servants. The servant cried that he had just encountered Death, who had threatened him. He begged his master to give him his fastest horse so that he could make haste and flee to Teheran, which he could reach that same evening."

"The master consented and the servant galloped off on the horse. On returning to his house the master himself met Death, and questioned him, "Why did you terrify and threaten my servant?" "I did not threaten him; I only showed surprise in still finding him here when I planned to meet him tonight in Teheran," said Death."

The moral of Frankl's story, you can run, you can hide, but there's no escaping Death.

The actor, Chazz Palminteri, who typically plays gangster roles, had a very simple line in the movie, "Boss of Bosses" (2001) which has become one of my favorite quotes.

His mob crime boss, Carlo, was on his death bed. He was scared and lamenting the fact that the majority of his adult life he lived as a killer and had people killed.

Palminteri calmly stated as he stood over the dying man's bed, "Scared? You? No, never. Hey, nobody gets out alive, Carlo. Alright?"

That's a fact, "nobody gets out alive."

The second biggest factor that keeps fear alive and well is the loss of money and financial stability. Most people would say this reason is extremely concrete, real, and cannot be ignored.

When you think about the money aspect of fear, this is the reason the Roman Catholic Church has created the stories pertaining to hell, fire and brimstone, and eternal life. Pay your ten percent to the Church, and you don't need to "fear the wrath of God."

"Believers" will tell you, that's not from the Church, it's in the Bible. Well, who do you think collated the 66 books of the bible? The "Greatest Story Ever Told" is predicated on FEAR. As the adage goes, "if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything."

Surrender Chemical Weapons

Submitted by taskeinc on September 10th, 2013

United States President, Barack Obama, on Tuesday, 09/10/13, will go before Congress seeking a diplomatic agreement to avoid missile strikes in Syria.

The caveat: as long as Syrian President Bashar Assad surrenders chemical weapons.

Ruse # 1: The U.S. believes it should retaliate for the Syrian governments chemical weapons attack outside of Damascus that reportedly killed 1,300 people as a result of chemical weapons attack (Assad denies the use of chemical weapons, not that that would matter to the good ol USA).

Ruse # 2: America attacks these countries under the guise of "helping" when nothing could be further from the truth. And WE, the American public, continue to send our sons and daughters to fight, to "protect our borders." Give me a break!

When the United States government wants to get a stronger foothold in a particular region, various media outlets, such as CNN, are used to propagate misleading, and oftentimes, false information to raise the ire of the American public. Thus giving the military a "legitimate" reason to attack the country of their choice, or the one standing in the way of more profit and control.

The painful irony of the U.S. having the audacity of trying to force Syria to surrender chemical weapons (weapons they may not even have - remember "Weapons of Mass Destruction" was the ruse to create a war with Iraq) is the fact that America, Japan, Iraq - U.S. facilitation of chemical weapon attacks during Saddam Hussein's tenure - have historically cornered the market on the use of biological and chemical weapons.

Here's a brief rundown:

-- Lethal experiments on biological and chemical warfare, including the use of poisons for assassination purposes and the wide-scale use of herbicides. Experiments were conducted on thousands of prisoners, ranging from 3000 to 20,000 POW's and civilian prisoners.

-- Imperial Army implemented the use of the bacteriological weapons against the Chinese and Soviets during World War II. An estimated quarter and half to a million people were killed from the plague, typhoid, and other diseases, and many others suffered permanent injuries.

-- Japan bombed cities with specially constructed bacterial bombs, as part of a plan that included well-poisonings, the release of infected rats and fleas (bred specially for the purpose), and other forms of mass inoculations.

-- America's use of "Agent Orange" in Vietnam. The U.S. military sprayed herbicides in the jungles of Southeast Asia to try to deny cover to North Vietnamese and Vietcong troops.

Agent Orange contains the chemical dioxin. Some of the side effects of this powerful chemical are: tumors, birth defects, rashes, psychological symptoms and cancer. Generations of U.S. servicemen and their families, along with the Vietnamese population, continue to be victimized, 40 years after the war in Vietnam.

Vietnam Ministry of Foreign Affairs, asserts that approximately 5 million people were victims of Agent Orange.

In 1984, Vietnam veterans received a settlement of $180 million from the companies that manufactured Agent Orange. Former soldiers from Australia, New Zealand and Canada also received compensation.

There are a few concrete reasons why the United States would not dare attack Japan:

(1) US has worked in tandem with Japan by facilitating and assisting in the use of biological and chemical weaponry.
(2) Japan is not an easy mark and a war with this country would prove to be fatal to the U.S.
(3) A war between these two global powers would come down to who pushes the button the fastest, U.S. President Obama or Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

To date, America has been the only country in world history to utilize the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan, on August 6th and 9th, 1945.

How dare the United States try to tell some other country to "surrender chemical weapons." You surrender yours, maybe other countries will surrender theirs. Keep in mind, some of the smaller nations that America likes to pick fights with, don't have the finances or the scientific know-how to pull off the sinister acts that the larger, bully-nations have.

 Unity and Peace

Submitted by taskeinc on July 18th, 2013

Ever ask yourself, "What the heck are we doing?" The late Rodney King, after the acquittal of the Los Angeles police officers who beat him down, made a simple, elementary request, "Can we all just get along?"

Unfortunately the global response appears to be a resounding NO! This nation, along with sister nations, has no clue as to what our collective behavior is leading to, and our actions clearly indicate that we don't care.

It comes down to an eloquent pronouncement made by Dr. King, several decades ago.

"Violence solves no social problems; it merely creates new and more complicated ones. Through the vistas of time a voice still cries to every potential Peter, "Put up your sword!" The shores of history are white with the bleached bones of nations and communities that failed to follow this command. If victims of oppression succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle for justice, unborn generations will live in a desolate night of bitterness and their chief legacy will be an endless reign of chaos."

King's statement has proved to be a prophetic one because we are certainly immersed in what seems to be an "endless reign of chaos." All because most people want to be right and have no desire to find a common bond. Money, greed, and a lust for power are vital players in what we are seeing today. Man has created his very own Hell right here on Earth. Humankind first broached the subject of Hell in the Bible, defining it to be a place where bad people go.

From a religious perspective, "bad" would include, not believing in the Trinity, not tithing, and more, but that's another article for another day.

In the 21st century, we are seeing the consequences of our bitterness and hatred toward one another, with no end in sight.

America and the Western World is predominantly Christian. The Eastern World is primarily Islam. Over the past 2,000 years, Christians have waited on Jesus to return and solve all our problems. In the East, Muslims are certain that Allah has all the answers and will rectify our sadistic, global conundrum, at some point in the future.

It is highly probable that if you lived another 2,000 years, neither Allah or Jesus will save us from ourselves. As the late astrophysicist Carl Sagan states in his very eloquent soliloquy, +The-Pale-Blue-Dot .. "In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."

It's OK to go to church every Sunday and pray for world peace, but it's also important to roll up your sleeves and start spreading love and peace rather than being a silent partner in all the hellacious pandemonium.

We're silent partners because there was not the massive uproar that should have spawned from the fact that the American government played a central part in the international ruse of 9/11. Most Americans accept the rubbish that was handed to us by the American government as to what actually happened.

This is not an anti-American diatribe. If you do just a little research, the facts become crystal clear about the events that took place on 09/11/2001. Do a little fact-finding and you will definitely notice a huge "fly in the ointment."

America is its own worst enemy. Most of the wars we have been involved in, we started, and most were orchestrated for profit and control. As it should be, Americans have supported, and should continue to support our troops abroad. These are our children, our brothers, sisters, moms, and dads, therefore we wholeheartedly support them. But to label the present war, a "fight for freedom," or "protecting our liberties," or "protecting our borders" is something straight out of Dr. Zeuss.

Did we forget all of a sudden that there were no "weapons of mass destruction?" Was this not the initial reason the war against Iraq was declared in the first place?

It's time for all Americans, and citizens across the globe, to step to the plate and make a positive difference. If we don't, our indifference will follow us into the next life and there will certainly be a price to pay as we learn how to love one another. What's ironic about our collective strife and hatred toward one another is the fact that we will, at some point in our soul's journey toward perfection, learn how to love unconditionally.

Why We Are Not Alone

Submitted by taskeinc on July 31st, 2013

"It would be inexcusably egocentric to suggest that we are alone in the cosmos. The chemistry is too rich to declare that. The universe is too vast."

"There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand in all the beaches of the world. There are more stars in the universe than all the sounds and words ever uttered by all humans who ever lived .. we are not alone."

-- Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson

Being scientifically literate, empowers you to be able to sift through all the religious nonsensical hyperbole. This doesn't mean you need to know the ins and outs of zero point energy, or Einstein's theory of special relativity, just the basics will clearly point out the absolute fact that we cannot be alone in this vast universe.

If indeed we do not exist as the only thinking beings in the universe, what does this say about the plethora of religious stories? A large percentage of these canonical allegories are only applicable to this tiny pale blue dot located in the Milky Way galaxy. A galaxy by the way, which is one of trillions.

Our closest galactic neighbor is Andromeda. Andromeda is twice the size of our galaxy - 100,000 light-years across compared to Andromeda, 200,000 light-years in diameter - and twice the age - Milky Way is approximately 4.5 billion years old; Andromeda is around 9 billion years of age. One light-year is equivalent to just under 6 trillion miles (see "Observing Andromeda Galaxy" bubblews.com/news/774755-observing-the-andromeda-galaxy).

Next time you go for a walk on a bright sunny morning, take a brief glance toward our closest star, the Sun; located 93 million miles from our planet. At times it appears as if the Sun is only a few thousand yards away. The reason this magnificent star so brightly illuminates planet Earth is because of its size - 1 million planet Earth's could fit inside the Sun - and because of its astounding luminosity - approximately 390,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (390 septillion) watts. Luminosity is the total energy radiated per second, or wattage.

The night sky is filled with stars (suns). On a clear night, with the unaided eye, you can see a few thousand stars. Perfect eyesight, from the Northern and Southern hemispheres, in completely dark skies, on a moonless night, you might be able to count close to 9,000 stars. With a good pair of binoculars, the number jumps to about 200,000; a small telescope, you can view up to 15 million stars.

Astronomers estimate that the Milky Way contains close to 400 billion stars of various sizes and brightness. Our sun is considered an average size star. If you're looking through a telescope, the fuzzy patches you see, are galaxies - massive galactic structures that contain more or less stars than the Milky Way.

There are spiral galaxies in the visible universe with more than a trillion stars (Milky Way and Andromeda are both spiral galaxies). The giant elliptical galaxies are estimated to have somewhere in the range of 100 trillion stars. Elliptical galaxies take the form of ellipsoids (three-dimensional, closed geometric shape).

According to astronomers there are more than 170 billion galaxies in the observable universe. The "observable" or "visible" universe is that portion of our world that scientist and astronomers have been able to observe from telescopes like Hubble, Giant Magellan (GMT), Thirty Meter (TMT), European Extremely Large (E-ELT), Large Synoptic Survey (LSST), and many more. An interesting fact, the observable universe only makes up about 4 percent of what's out there.

I could go on, but I'll leave you with this thought. As our beautiful, bountiful, bright, energy-generating Sun, lights up and provides for our planet, how many other planets are being illuminated by their closest star?

--There is no doubt, we are not alone.

Dumbed Down Society

Submitted by taskeinc on June 29th, 2013

The phrase, "Dumbing down," describes the deliberate diminished intellectual level of the content of literature, film, education, news, government, and other aspects of society.

The cliché first originated as slang and was used by motion picture screenplay writers. The purpose was to, "revise so as to appeal to those of little education or intelligence."

That's exactly what the media has done for the past century, especially where war, religion, politics, medicine, and education are concerned. There are a few dozen families that control America's mass media of news and entertainment. The power wielded by the manipulators of public opinion has tremendous influence across the globe. This small but powerful group control the vast majority of television networks. They dominate the printed press; the book publishing, and recording industry, ABC, NBC, CBS, TBS, CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, and much more.

The power of the media reaches practically every home in America and is effective 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Television has a major impact as it shapes and molds the minds of every citizen. Young or old, rich or poor, race plays no factor, in the collective wool being pulled over the eyes of the human race.

The mass media forms the image they want you to see, and how they want you to think. Everything we think we know, about events outside our own neighborhood, outside of our circle of associates, comes to us via newspapers, magazines, radio, or television. The Internet is slowly but surely exposing some of the lies, but it's vitally important to read outside of the mainstream media. Turn the television off for awhile and devote a couple hours per day to broaden and expand the mind.

Look up at night, you'll see the stars. Study those stars, find out their names, how far away they are, how big and bright they are (many are triple the size of our star - the Sun - and hundreds of times more luminous). Once this knowledge is acquired, you'll realize you've been hoodwinked.

When your eyes are open to the global duplicity going on around you, only then will you begin to comprehend what esoteric scholar, Jordan Maxwell meant when he stated: "The more you educate yourself, the more you understand where things come from, the more obvious things become, and you begin to see lies everywhere. You have to know the truth and seek the truth and the truth will set you free."

I must apologize to the billions of theist, across the globe, before I even type this; but for those who believe the truth exist in archaic holy books, you're egregiously mistaken. These books have vestiges of the truth embedded in metaphors, anthropomorphism, circular arguments, double entendres, and mediocrity principles. Unfortunately, the minute veracity that does exist, is surrounded by a plethora of fables, fabrications, and myriad macabre allegories, that, for the most part, have been historically ignored.

Charles Ponzi

Submitted by taskeinc on September 14th, 2013

Wikipedia defines a "Ponzi Scheme" as "a fraudulent investment operation that pays returns to its investors from their own money or the money paid by subsequent investors, rather than from profit earned by the individual or organization running the operation."

The name is derived from Charles Ponzi (image to the left is a 1910 police mugshot of C. Ponzi) who became infamous across the United States for his ability to rake in large sums of money with his pseudo, illegal investment schemes.

The basic foundation of a Ponzi scheme is huge initial returns on an investment. For a while, unsuspecting investors are amazed by the large profits they receive. Participants are unaware and blinded as to what will eventually befall them.

When the walls come tumbling down, the sinister, greedy, venture capitalist has either left the country or is desperately trying to do so.

Whether or not the ponzi artist's initial intent was to scam or not, he is well aware that his operation is in major trouble, long before investors start losing large amounts of time and money.

Time is money for the investor, so if she's devoting a number of hours to a fallacious organization, that becomes defunct, she' lost a great deal of income and her trust in fair business practices and entrepreneurship is forever shattered.

There are a plethora of ravenous and pernicious business people who prey on innocent victims. Unbeknownst to the defrauder, karma is real, and at some point and time, whether in this existence or another, he will pay dearly for his chicanery.

 Racism or Ignorance?

Submitted by taskeinc on September 05th, 2013

In 1881, an article written by Frederick Douglass entitled "The Color Line" was published in the North American Review.

In 1903, W. E. B. Du Bois’ repeated the phrase in his book, "The Souls of Black Folk", when he stated, "The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line; the relation of the darker to the lighter races of men in Asia and Africa, in America and the islands of the sea."

Du Bois could have easily included the twenty-first century in his commentary. In contemporary times, the conversation pertaining to racial strife revolves around one of two elements: racism or ignorance.

Wikipedia's definition of racism is "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races." Stereotyping and generalizing are the cornerstones of racist attitudes and beliefs.

A lack of knowledge about an individual and his related culture, often leads to benighted, misguided concepts. Skin color has never and will never, define the character of a human being. We are all cut from the very same cloth. We are individualized expressions of the exact same source. Every person on this planet is vital to the planetary ecosystem and no one person is more important than another.

Your race, religion, political position, or place of employment has no bearing on the content of your character. If you are what you do for a living, then who do you become when you're no longer employed? What happens when you retire? Do you become less of a human being?

Racism and racist views can always be nullified via intelligence. Knowledge trumps ignorance every time; it's no contest.

A white, black, or brown racist, in the long run, is only hurting himself. You get out of life exactly what you put into it. If archaic, discriminatory dialogue is what you're bringing to the table, ultimately, you're not going to be very happy with the results. At some point and time, cold hard reality will sink in and you'll get a heavy dose of the law of causation or the law of cause and effect.

This immutable guideline is based on the Socratic "Law of Causality." A law so powerful and profound, it's been referred to as the "Iron Law of Human Destiny." This universal law states that everything happens for a reason. All actions have consequences and produce specific results. The choices we make are "causes" whether they are conscious or unconscious, and will produce corresponding outcomes or "effects."

The Law of Causality shows no favorites, it does not care whether you're Christian, Muslim, Atheist, Black, White, or Brown; it works the same for everyone at all times.

 Do Your Research

Submitted by taskeinc on July 20th, 2013

Twenty to thirty years ago, if you wanted to do research for a school paper or a non-fictional article, you had to go to the library.

Once inside the library, you were at the mercy of the materials and whether or not they were up-to-date. If you could not find what you were looking for on the bookshelves, then you had to resort to trying to find your topic on microfiche.

For those of you who have no idea what "microfiche" is, thefreedictionary.com defines it as, "a card or sheet of microfilm capable of accommodating and preserving a considerable number of pages, as of printed text, in reduced form." About 2 years ago I needed information pertaining to my divorce, 14 years ago, and when I went to the county office, the information I needed was actually on microfilm - go figure.

Today, there's no need to go to the library to do quality research. Certainly, it is still a viable source for information, but quite a few people only visit to access the Internet. If you have web access at home, you would have no need to go.

The World Wide Web is inundated with bloggers, pseudo authors, and a plethora of article writers like you and me.

The point this conventional article writer is trying to make is, since there are myriad ways to do quality research, from the comfort of your very own home, why not utilize those methods?

Far too often, ersatz article writers are self-publishing material that is, at best, a fictional, biased, fairytale, with no reputable references. Myblog.com, or JohnnieComeLately.info is probably not a reliable source.

Fundamentalist Zealots

Submitted by taskeinc on August 05th, 2013

A religious, fundamentalist zealot, is a combination of an individual who is fanatical and uncompromising in pursuit of his religious views and one who has adopted radically different beliefs via hereditary, systematic, and forcible indoctrination.

The vast majority (some, not all) of Christians and Muslims are oblivious participants in the most colossal brainwashing in the history of humankind. What's paradoxically humorous about the aforementioned statement is that, in the back of the mind of the Muslim, he believes the devout Christian is brainwashed. The Christian mindset is that the Muslim has been religiously inculcated.

Christians, however, are "not one to judge," as they will often point out (some, not all). Unfortunately, the fact that the fundamentalist identifies with, and harbors, a strong belief in Christianity or Islam, being judgmental is an inherent characteristic (some, not all).

Those who follow the teachings of Christ believe they are favored by God while everyone else is condemned to Hell. It says that in the "good book." Being judgmental, in many subtle, and not so subtle ways, is actually highlighted throughout the Bible and the Qur'an.

Christianity and Islam are ranked one and two in number of followers. Over the past couple millennia, the two faiths have doggedly competed for converts. The two major religions account for several wars, going back to the Crusades.

Here's a list of the religious wars and the estimated death toll: 
  • Crusades 1095-1291, Christian and Islam: 1 million to 3 million deaths.
  •  French Wars of Religion 1562-1598, Protestants and Catholics: 2 million to 4 million deaths.
  •  Thirty Years War 1618-1648, Protestants and Catholics: 3 million to 11.5 million deaths.
  •  Lebanese Civil War 1975-1990, Sunni, Shiite, and Christian: 130,000 to 250,000 deaths.
  •  Second Sudanese Civil War 1983-2005, Christian and Islam: 1 million to 2 million deaths.
Participants in the Crusades and Thirty Years War were referred to as "Milites Christi" or the "Knights of Christ".

God does not fight, does not condone war, nor has the Creator ever favored one side over the other. Furthermore, the term "Holy War" is an oxymoron if ever there was one. The common thread of the aforementioned wars is Christianity and Islam.

These two bully religions, are like a guy you knew in school that always seemed to either, be in a fight, instigating a fight, or consistently around some type of mischief.

Since their inceptions, war, chaos, confusion, mind control, theft (also known as tithing), and many other social maladies, have been their contribution to humankind.

For the past 2000 years, Christianity and Islam has raped, pillaged, maimed, abused, cajoled, duped, stole, and murdered, all in the name of God. People often talk about and criticize fundamentalist Muslims, well, here's a NEWS FLASH: fundamentalist Christians are just as dangerous as indoctrinated Muslims, if not more.

My apologies to the Christian or Muslim reader who may be offended, but the record clearly speaks for itself.

Before you pass judgment on the author, I'm not Atheist and certainly believe there is a Divine Presence, or Divine Creator of the Universe.

We are all a part of this Loving Spirit, just as your offspring are a part of you.

Our connection to Divine Intelligence is based on energy; energy which can never be destroyed; energy that moves into form (birth), through form (life), and out of form (death), and the cycle is repeated.

What has occurred over the last few centuries and continues today is that, any event or revelation from the Bible or Qur'an, that doesn't pan out, or come to fruition, religious apologist will twist it, spin it a little, until it fits neatly into the fundamentalist agenda. It doesn't matter that parable makes no sense, evangelical zealots will stuff the square peg into the round hole nonetheless.

The Divine Being, referred to as God, is not jealous, vengeful, punishing, vindictive, nor does it condone the killing of children and the raping of women. It is a loving presence in the universe that our archaic, canonical stories, have made in the image of Man, instead of the other way around. This was done in order to take your money and to control your mind; that is the bottom line.

Hubble Extreme Deep Field (XDF)

Submitted by taskeinc on June 23rd, 2013

The Hubble Extreme Deep Field is an image that was taken over a period 23 days in 2010. The image to the left is a picture of the moon as it is compared to the small portion of space that makes up the image captured by the Hubble telescope, referred to as the Extreme Deep Field (XDF).

The second image shows a close-up of numerous galaxies in a very tiny portion of space. The Hubble telescope (stationed about 350 miles above the surface of the Earth) focused on a small portion of the night sky and came up with a picture that revealed over 5,500 galaxies! This has become one of the most profound images ever recorded and shows just how small we are when you look at the much bigger picture.

Each galaxy in the image to the right, like our Milky Way galaxy, and our closest neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, includes billions of stars and planetary systems (our Solar System is a planetary system). What the XDF image represents is a clear indication that, in our Solar System and the galaxy we reside in, we are surrounded by millions of other spiral and elliptical galaxies. The Milky Way, Andromeda, and Pinwheel, are called "Spiral" galaxies because of the rotating disk containing stars, gas, and dust, that make up the "spiral arms".

Planet Earth, our nearest star - the Sun - and our Milky Way Galaxy, if viewed from one million light years away (one light year is 5,878,625,000, a little under 6 trillion miles) would not be visible at all.

The late astronomer Carl Sagan referred to planet Earth as the, "pale blue dot"; if viewed from such a distance, the pale blue dot would not be a blip on the radar screen. Our entire planet, our entire Solar System, and our galaxy, would be invisible.

In 2018 the James Webb telescope, Hubble's successor, will be launched almost 1 million miles into space, compared to Hubble sitting 350 miles into space. The JWT will be more powerful than Hubble so there's no telling what we'll be able to see, or what type of images will be on display. I'm not one to rush my time (although I am excited about another existence, in another galaxy, maybe one that's 4th or 5th dimensional - where thoughts become reality in an instant) but I can't wait for the launch of the James Webb Telescope.

National Embarrassment

Submitted by taskeinc on September 13th, 2013

The title of the Yahoo Shine article is, "Dad Wears Short Shorts to Teach Daughter a Lesson, Becomes Online Celeb." The image to the left is a picture of Scott Mackintosh, the father who decided to teach his daughter a lesson about her attire by embarrassing her on the world wide web. Below-right is a picture of his daughter.

What gets me is the number of people who are applauding the parent's idiotic behavior. That's right, "idiotic", "imbecilic", inconsiderate, and just downright stupid.

Attempting to teach lessons about morality via Social Networking is not the wisest decision to make. The problem arises when you subject your child to international ridicule by taking your statement to the Internet. The repercussions won't always work in your favor.

This statement comes from a single father of a son and daughter, for the past 14 years. Under no circumstances would I ever put my children on global blast, subjecting them to potential ridicule by their real and virtual associates. Such parental disregard for a child's emotional and social well-being will always come back to haunt you.

Somewhere down the road, as copycat parents continue to make bold statements to their children over the Internet, an emotionally imbalanced child will take her own life. What will you think of the parents antics when this happens?

Your children deserve more respect, and that respect starts as soon as they come out of their mother's womb. When this happens, a decade or so down the road, mutual respect will exist between parent and child.

What Mackintosh has done is broken any potential, lasting, bond with his daughter. He doesn't realize it yet, but his 15 minutes of fame will consequently be the biggest mistake he's made in regards to connecting with his child.

Five Reasons to Oppose War

Submitted by taskeinc on September 05th, 2013

This post is not intended to offend the many men and women who have served and continue to serve this country.

Prayers go out to those who are currently participating in wars across the globe.

However, this author considers it a moral obligation to oppose war at every turn. Here are 5 solid reasons to say no to war.

1. Wars For Profit

Most wars, past and present, were initiated and fought because war is the most profitable enterprise known to man. There are a few financially elite families that participate in this global scam. They have no conscious, and could care less about human casualties associated with war.

2. Young Men and Women Used As Pawns

Picture war as a game of chess and our brothers, sisters, moms, dads, sons, and daughters are the pieces. Global leaders of three to four nations, (the U.S. is almost always one of the participants), play war games with the lives of our loved ones.

3. Long-term Effects

Many people who have been participants in an extended war, if they are fortunate to return home alive, suffer from myriad physical and mental health problems for the rest of their lives.

4. Veterans Benefits

The Veterans Administration "benefits" associated with soldiers are the carrots that are used to entice young men and women to go to war. Is a discount on a home worth your life, or the life of someone you might have to take? What about the impact war has on the soul? What about karmic consequences?

5. America is a Bully

Plain and simple, super nations generally pick fights with smaller, weaker nations. What happened between Russia and America? They engaged in a "Cold War," a war of words, a "proxy war," but would not dare engage in physical combat. Not because one nation might win or lose, but because the major nations are all about profit.

War is like a billionaire owning two opposing football teams and both are playing in the Superbowl; it's a win-win for the owner. That's how it is with war, a boon for the 1 percent of the population that constitutes the super-rich. The outcome is not the issue, and it matters not who is on the battle field.

Certainly you've noticed how the United States is always trying to make sure other countries don't have nuclear weapons and to date, we are the only nation who has actually used the atomic bomb against another nation.

Comprehending Your Holy Book

Submitted by taskeinc on August 05th, 2013

A serious incongruity exist between theist and their holy books, and that is, people have not read very much of their spiritual literature. They will read certain verses that were the focus of last Sunday's sermon, but rarely is a comprehensive study done.

Those that have read more than a few books of the Bible or the Qur'an, usually don't really understand what's actually being said. You often get the reply, "I pray to God for discernment."

That's all well and good, but allow me to quote one of the biblical scriptures, James 2:14-17 ..

"What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, be warmed and filled," without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."

The last sentence, verse 17, "So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead." In the case of understanding the Bible; yes, Divine Intelligence will enlighten you, but you must do the work.

Here's what "the work" includes:

The Bible is a library of 66 books written over a period of over 1500 years by a plethora of authors. As legend has it, these myriad authors were all inspired in their thinking and writing by the "Holy Spirit."

This claim of divine inspiration is why Christians believe that the bible is the inspired word of God without error. That's right, 66 books written over a period of almost two millennia, originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, is considered inerrant by ecclesiastical intransigents. By the way, no copies of the original version exist.

The recognized genres of the Bible include:
  • Apocalyptic - Daniel, Revelations
  •  Epic - Exodus, Genesis, Numbers, Joshua, Ruth, 1st and 2nd Samuel, Chronicles, Jonah, Esther, Exra, Nehemiah
  •  Epistle (letter) - Romans, 1st and 2nd Corinthians, Colossians, Ephesians, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, Philemon, James, Peter, John, Jude, Titus, Timothy
  •  Gospel - Acts, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
  •  Law - Deuteronomy, parts of Exodus, Leviticus
  •  Prophecy - Amos, Daniel, Ezekiel, Habakkuk, Haggai, Hosea, Joel, Jonah, Micah, Malachi, Nahum, Obadiah, Zechariah, Zephaniah
  •  Psalms - Psalms, Lamentations, Song of Solomon
  •  Wisdom - Ecclesiastes, Job, Proverbs

It's necessary to take at least one course in Hermeneutics which is the study of the interpretation of written texts. Bible hermeneutics is "the study of the principles of interpretation concerning the books of the Bible."

When studying the 66 books that make up the Bible, it is imperative that the reader not only review the information but also have some knowledge of the literary form used by the author. This gives the reader a clue as to the point the writer is trying to get across.

This type of discernment of the scriptures will not occur no matter how long you pray because, "faith without works is dead."

Ask a believer if he has read the bible and in most cases the response will be, "some of it." People will quote a scripture or two, from memory, but really don't know very much about the Bible or the Qur'an. The easiest way to tell if a person is brainwashed is that he will defend his beliefs wholeheartedly, while not being very knowledgeable of that which he is defending.

Snow Geese

Submitted by taskeinc on August 04th, 2013

The word "Atheist" is a label. "Christian," "Muslim," "Buddhist," whatever you call yourself, all labels, even the word "God", was created by man (earliest uses of the word God is often cited to be in the Gothic Bible estimated to be from the fourth century).

If everything is made of energy; a combination of atoms, protons and neutrons, then we're all one unit, that is part of a larger universe.

If you look at your hand, or any part of your body, under a powerful microscope, you won't see anything. We are nothing but energy: atoms, protons, neutrons, which means, on a cosmic scale, we're all connected.

5 million Snow Geese migrate thousands of miles every year. Two astonishing facts of the mass migration are:

-- There's no real leader; no president, no governor, no chairperson, and as humongous as the flock of birds are, they operate on one accord. In other words, they operate as one, and that is how they collectively reach their goal.

-- Snow geese are able to routinely find their nesting grounds in the arctic tundra and return to the same area where they hatched. Snow Geese, also known as the Blue Goose, find their mates during the winter feeding season and forge lifelong bonds.

If 5 million humans attempted to migrate 5000 yards, simultaneously, there would be infighting, squabbling, manipulation, and possibly murder.

Regardless of whether you believe there is a Creator of humankind or not is really beside the point and has nothing to do with the big picture. We all emanate from the same source, and we're all connected to that source.

The Creator of humankind is neither male, or female, black or white.

Author, Rebecca Rosen, put it this way..

"Picture the ocean, take a cup of water, dip it into the ocean." "That cup of water has the same elements of the ocean, just not the force and magnitude of the ocean, but the exact same ingredients, and that small cup is part of what makes up the ocean."

This is our relationship to the Creator of humankind, same elements, same ingredients, just not the magnitude or force.

We fuss, fight, and bicker over such inconsequential things primarily because of religious and cultural conditioning. "God" or the "Creator of Humankind" reveals itself every day. Every time you look in the mirror; every time a baby is born, every time the sun rises and sets, the Creator of man/woman is revealed.

The labels we adhere to, are what makes us appear to be separate. Religions divide; instead of bringing us together, it divides us like no other institution. Religion is the primary reason we cannot see that we operate as one.

Mind Boggling Cosmos

Submitted by taskeinc on June 06th, 2013

A couple of years ago, I started researching the universe, or the cosmos. The more information gathered on this fascinating topic, the more I've become enthralled with the subject. Then I watched the video, "Journey to the Edge of the Universe" (youtu.be/Zr7wNQw12l8), and I was hooked!

How big is the universe? It is a question man has been asking since the beginning of time. The infinite size is staggering, and even that's putting it mildly. There are no words to describe the gargantuan size of the universe. With countless stars and galaxies we can only imagine what is out there.

Astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson states, "It would be inexcusably egocentric to suggest that we are alone in the cosmos, the chemistry is too rich to declare that, the universe is too vast." "There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand in all the beaches of the world." "There are more stars in the universe than all the sounds and words ever uttered by all humans who have ever lived, to say we are alone in the universe."

While researching Gliese 581c, considered an Ocean Planet or Water World, because it's purported to be 100% water, I remembered an interview by Michael Newton, Ph.D., author and hypnotherapist. Dr. Newton wrote a book entitled, "Destiny of Souls." In Destiny of Souls, 67 people recall their life between lives through Dr. Newton's personal work in spiritual hypnotherapy.

He was asked the question, "What about other worlds?" A portion of his response was:

"What is interesting about talking to people who have incarnated on other worlds is that What appeals to the particular souls about Earth may also be appealing to similar environments. For instance, when I'm talking to large audiences I ask the audience, how many people who have had dreams you can fly, about 75% will raise their hands. Then I will say, how many of you have had dreams where you can swim under water, and breathe, and that you're a very intelligent life form. What this indicates is, and our dreams do tell us a lot about our former experiences, that many people who incarnate on earth also incarnate on flying and water worlds.

I read the book a couple of years ago, and first viewed the video shortly afterwards. Fast forward 24-months and I find out that Gliese 581c is an Ocean Planet. But that's just one of many indications that the cosmos and the spiritual world are intertwined in ways we cannot imagine. It's difficult to wrap our brains around this concept because the majority, even in 2013, are steeped in religious folklore that severely limits collective rationale and reasoning.

-- Consider this ...

A group of researchers at the University of Hawaii did a study, assuming a grain of sand has an average size and you calculate how many grains are in a teaspoon and then multiply by all the beaches and deserts in the world, the Earth has roughly 7.5 x 1018 grains of sand, or seven quintillion, five hundred quadrillion (7,500,000,000,000,000,000) grains of sand.

Using data from the Hubble telescope and a calculator, to count distant galaxies, faint stars, red dwarfs, and everything we've recorded in the sky, the population of stars is in the range of 70 thousand million, million, million (70 sextillion - 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) stars in the observable universe. And the "observable universe is only about 5% of the entire universe.

Now consider the fact that the majority of these 70 sextillion stars, just like our star in our Milky Way Galaxy - the Sun - has planets orbiting them.

Think about how shallow, how conditioned a mind, a person would need to have, if he believes that Jesus Christ came to this one miniscule planet to save it from sin (which hasn't happened by the way). What about the other gazillion planets in the universe?

The biological makeup of a human being has these elements in common with the universe: hydrogen, helium, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. Carbon is the richest element in the universe, so to think that life only manifested on this one tiny planet is beyond ridiculous.

-- Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson

Ingredients of the Universe are the same ingredients that make up a human being:

  • Hydrogen
  • Helium
  • Oxygen
  • Carbon
  • Nitrogen

Are we alone in the universe? We're made of the most common ingredients there are. Our chemistry is based on carbon. Carbon is the most chemically active ingredient in the entire periodic table. Life is based on carbon, the 4th most abundant ingredient in the universe.

If we ask ourselves, are we alone in the universe, it would be inexcusably egocentric to suggest that we are alone in the cosmos. The chemistry is too rich to declare that. The universe is too vast. There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand in all the beaches of the world. There are more stars in the universe than all the sounds and words ever uttered by all humans who have ever lived, to say we are alone in the universe. We're looking, but we haven't looked that far.

Life on earth, is it hard to form, just because we don't know how to do it in the lab, doesn't mean that nature had problems. It may be, given that information, given the right ingredients (which are everywhere), life may be inevitable. An inevitable consequence of complex chemistry.

If that's the case, looking at our own solar system, Mars for example, all evidence suggest that Mars was once a wet, fertile place, an oasis. There are dried river beds, flood planes, river deltas, meandering rivers; all dried up now. There was some type of major cataclysm that destroyed life on Mars. This destruction of life was more than likely caused by the "runaway greenhouse effect."

The runaway greenhouse effect had something to do with the destruction of life on Venus as well (temperatures reached 900 degrees Fahrenheit). A runaway greenhouse effect is a process in which a net positive feedback between surface temperature and atmospheric opacity increases the strength of the greenhouse effect on a planet until its oceans boil away. An example of this is believed to have happened in the early history of Venus. Venus is the best example in the solar system of a planet gone bad.

On the Earth, a runaway greenhouse effect, analogous to Venus, appears to have virtually no chance of being induced by anthropogenic activities (human impact on the environment or anthropogenic impact on the environment includes impacts on biophysical environments, biodiversity and other resources).

Asteroid impacts when they hit can cast rocks into space with escape philosophy (never come back to the planet from which it came). If Mars was wet and fertile before Earth was, as all evidence suggest, and if Mars had life, before Earth had life, it's possible for there to have been bacterial stowaways in the nooks and crannies of the rocks that were cast into space. The hostile environment of space would be nothing to this type of bacteria. Life on Earth could very well seeded by bacterial stowaways on rocks that were cast free from Mars. A plausible scenario called Panspermia.

Panspermia Theory suggest that life seeds came from space and planets exchanged life. Panspermia suggest that life could have existed on another planet and moved to Earth. Statistics have shown 7.5% of rocks from Mars reach Earth. The rocks would travel between 100 years to 16,000 years and more, to get to earth.

-- Gliese 581c

Gliese 581c, in constellation of Libra, is five times the mass of our home planet. It's considered an ocean planet which feels like you're in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. No land in sight, just water, puffy white clouds, blue sky. The winds on this planet are very similar to that on the Earth so it would be an idea place for sailing. Clear blue skies every day, and the sun stays in the exact same place.

Water is essential to life on Earth. Everywhere on Earth, where there is water, there is life. So certainly there would be abundant life on Gliese 581c. Life such as what Dr. Michael Newton alluded to in his experience with past-life regression therapy.

-- Quantum Physics and Theory

Quantum physics is a branch of science that deals with discrete, indivisible units of energy called quanta as described by the Quantum Theory. Quantum theory evolved as a new branch of theoretical physics during the first few decades of the 20th century in order to understand the fundamental properties of matter.

There are five main ideas represented in Quantum Theory:

Energy is not continuous, but comes in small but discrete units. The elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves. The movement of these particles is inherently random. It is physically impossible to know both the position and the momentum of a particle at the same time. The more precisely one is known, the less precise the measurement of the other is.The atomic world is nothing like the world we live in. This may seem like just another strange theory, but it contains many clues as to the fundamental nature of the universe and is more important than even relativity in the grand scheme of things. Furthermore, it describes the nature of the universe as being much different than the world we see.

-- Nicolaus Copernicus

Nicolaus Copernicus is one of the most pivotal astronomers in history and is considered the founder of modern astronomy. was the first to prove that the Earth was not the center of the universe.

Copernicus worked as a mathematician, physician, classical scholar, artist, Catholic cleric, governor, diplomat, military leader, translator, and economist. Astronomy was a hobby, not his profession, but it was in this field where he received his biggest claim to fame.

In Copernicus' day, scientists generally held a geocentric view of the universe - meaning the earth was the center of the solar system and remained stationary as the sun, stars, and planets revolved around it.

Copernicus' hypothesis challenged this belief, asserting that the sun was the stationary center of the solar system and that the earth revolved around it. While this idea had been theorized by a few ancient scholars, Copernicus was the first to scientifically propose the idea of a "heliocentric" cosmology.

Copernicus' ideas would spark the Copernican Revolution, which helped launch the Scientific Revolution of the 16th Century.

Copernicus heliocentric theory was published in the book titled, "On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres," in 1543, the year he died.

Opposition exploded sixty years later when the Catholic Church took action, alleging that a heliocentric point of view contradicted Holy Scripture.

The Catholic Church suspended further publication of Copernicus' book until offending portions could be edited out (this is exactly what was done to many books of the bible). A decree was issued prohibiting any further work defending his heliocentric theory.

Pope Paul V sent notice of the decree to the astronomer Galileo, warning him not to uphold or defend Copernican doctrine. But in 1633, Galileo was convicted of suspicion of heresy for promoting Copernican ideas and was sentenced to house arrest for the remainder of his life.

God of the gaps is a type of theological perspective in which gaps in scientific knowledge are taken to be evidence or proof of God's existence. It refers to a specific form of the argument from ignorance fallacy, which asserts that a proposition is true because it has not yet been proven false.

-- Theory of Relativity

In 1915, Albert Einstein first proposed his theory of special relativity. Essentially, this theory proposes the universe we live in includes 4 dimensions, the first three being what we know as space, and the fourth being space-time, which is a dimension where time and space are inextricably linked.

Relativity is simply a method for two people to agree on what they see if one of them is moving. Since we move about on a regular basis, we can find many examples on the efficiency of relativity in everyday life.

Lets start with the GPS (Global Positioning System) which can pinpoint your location, anywhere on Earth, to within a few yards. This is possible because of the existence of two dozen satellites positioned 12,000 miles above the Earth, and a little relativity. The way it works: the GPS receiver gets a timing signal from several different satellites and using Einstein's Theory of Relativity plus triangulation, and out comes your location. Timing signals must be accurate to a few billionths of a second in order for distance calculations to be accurate within a few yards. With all the motiong going on, time and distance must be carefully reconciled. Without Einstein's version of Relativity, the accuracy of the Global Positioning System, would drift more than 7 miles every single day.

Space and time are not absolute, there is no single time that exist for everyone in the universe. No distance in space that everyone can agree on. Space and time, like classical velocity, are only relative. Einstein referred to this as a single entity - space-time, in which events and measurements took place.

One observer might see two events separated by a large distance but occurring at almost the same point and time. While another observer views the same two events as occurring nearby in space, but far apart in time. While the individual space and time separations will be different, Einstein's equations allow the two observers to agree on the combined difference through space-time. Space and time were altered by the Theory of Relativity and idea of energy had to also be reconsidered.

If you look closely at a proton in a particle accelerator, it is easy for scientist to see that only some of the energy that we apply actually increases the speed of the particle, the remainder simply increases the mass of the particle. The faster it goes, the heavier it gets. When it is traveling at almost the speed of light (186,000 miles per second), almost all the applied energy just makes it heavier. That is why a particle with mass can never reach the speed of light because it gets heavier instead of going faster. This fact is summed up in the equation, E=MC2. This defines the energy of a body at rest and the equal sign indicates that matter can be converted into energy and vice-versa. The conversion factor, the speed of light squared, is an enormous number. According to the equation, a tiny bit of mass can be converted into an enormous amount of energy.

The recognition that mass could be converted into energy made it possible to understand the source of energy of the Sun and the Stars, still a mystery in Einstein's day. It also paved the way for the exploration of the mystery realm within the atom and the discovery of a plethora of new particles created from pure energy and powerful particle accelerators. In the early the 21st century Nuclear Power Plants provide about 20% of our nations electricity, converting a tiny fraction of mass of which uranium atom into useful energy.

Einstein's mass energy equation has had a far reaching impact on our world and our way of life. By the middle of the 21st century fusion reactors fueled with helium 3, manned on the moon, will convert even more mass into energy, with no dangerous by-products.

Return of Jesus

Like millions of others who do not read, you're only reciting what's in a 2600-year-old book. A book replete with parables, metaphors, anthropomorphism, fables, and myriad other types of apocryphal and dubious literature.

According to Saint Paul himself, in his letters, the first prediction of the return of Jesus was supposed to be at a time when, "we also are still alive." In other words, Jesus was to return during the lifetime of Saint Paul. It didn't happen then, and it won't happen now. If you were to live to be 5000 years old, you would still be waiting on Jesus to return.

I'm sure you're an intelligent guy, Sherwin, and if that is true, you need to start reading and studying geology (there are rocks across the globe that are billions of years old; rocks that makeup the foundation of the Earth - and the bible suggest that Earth and the Universe is less than 10,000 years old); study astronomy, science, and read about the discoveries of Nicholas Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, Edwin Hubble and the Hubble Telescope, and other great scientist, astrophysicist, microbiologist, astronomers, and mathematicians.

The more you investigate and study for yourself, you'll stop believing those outlandish medieval fairy tales. Remember, the authors of the bible thought the world was flat, thought the Earth was the center of the universe, had no knowledge of dinosaurs, had no knowledge of Earth's Neogene Period (which took place about 23 million years ago).

The authors of the bible do not mention the fact that the Earth formed 4.5 billion years ago, and that humans have walked the Earth for 190,000 years. According to various "holy books," including the bible, Adam and Eve, and "God creating the universe in 7 days" (for crying out loud), took place around 4004 BC .. if this were true, planet Earth would be approximately 6,017 years old. The creation of the universe has took place over 14 billion years and the fact that we live in an ever-expanding, infinite universe, it's still in the creation faze. There are new stars born every single day, which would account for the fact that there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on every beach in the world.

I don't mention all these things to appear to be a know-it-all, or to belittle those who believe the stories told to them when they were children. When we were kids, we were told stories about the tooth fairy (some parents would place money under a child's pillow and that money was supposed to be from the tooth fairy). We were told that a fat white man came down the chimney to deliver Christmas presents (if you have no chimney then he came through the door). My parents would even go so far as to leave 3 cups and saucer's on the table, the third cup was the one "Santa used."

We were told stories about the Easter Bunny. Last, but not least, we were told miraculous stories about Jesus. It didn't take long to figure out that the tooth fairy was a lie, the Easter Bunny was a lie, and Santa was a lie. Because the story of Jesus was tied into an eternal damnation, or an eternal bliss, you were forced to believe the Jesus myth. Unfortunately, it will take most people an entire lifetime to realize that the Jesus story, was, [once again] "The Greatest Story Ever Told."


I consistently try to bring out the facts, and implore people to READ, to STUDY, to open your eyes, open your mind, and to understand that, as far as religion (specifically Christianity and Islam) is concerned, you have been duped.
JFK and Lincoln

Submitted by taskeinc on September 28th, 2013

Many people, many minorities, including myself, applauded the election of the 44th and current president of the United States.

Ossie Davis so eloquently stated in his poetic eulogy of Malcolm X, "We shall know him then, for what he was and is, a Prince .. Our own Black shining Prince, who didn't hesitate to die because he loved us so." (http://youtube.com/watch?v=p_TXg15sq1s).

Some African Americans had delusions of grandeur when Obama took office, because he was to be our "black shining prince." Unfortunately, his moral impact has been miniscule at best, and his time in office, so far, has been no different than most of the former U.S. Presidents. For what it's worth, G. W. Bush stands alone in his international chicanery, but that's a subject for another day.

It pains me to say this, because I voted for him. Not to say that I'm not proud of our first president of color. He represents the black race quite well. He's well spoken, highly intelligent; has a beautiful, erudite wife, and lovely children. Black America could not have asked for a more classy first lady who rivals Jackie Kennedy in her graceful dignity.

This article is not about bashing Obama. This author is still cheering him on, still rooting for he and his family to do well. Personally, I will be relieved when his tenure is over. Not from a political standpoint but from the perspective that his life and reputation are at stake. The verbal threats, the name-calling (such as Hitler) is uncalled for and unprecedented. The American public acts as if he's the first president who has to abide by an agenda, who has to stick to the "game plan."

The title of this post is "JFK and Lincoln." The inspiration behind writing this article stems from the fact that these two men were the only two presidents that dared to buck the system. Both men went head on with the Central and Federal Reserve Bank respectively, and sacrificed their lives in the process.

Lincoln printed 400 million dollars worth of Greenbacks (the exact amount being $449,338,902), money that he delegated to be created, a debt-free and interest-free money to finance the War. It served as legal tender for all debts, public and private. The money was printed, paid to the soldiers, to the U.S. Civil Service employees, and bought supplies for war.

Lincoln was assassinated by an agent of the Bankers (history shows John Wilkes Booth as his assassin) shortly after the War ended.

Following Lincoln's death, Congress immediately repealed the Greenback law, celebrating the end of slavery by re-enslaving all America to the bankers.

In the book, "Lincoln Money Martyred," author Fabius Melton Butler, wrote, "The struggle that was to rid the country of human slavery of the black race, however, was also to fasten upon the whole nation an economic or money slavery, which has endured to the present time."

Kennedy issued his US Notes for much the same reason. On June 4, 1963, Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110, which authorized the US Treasury to issue a new form of silver certificate.

Kennedy issued $4,292,893,825 of cash money called, "silver certificates," that were free of debt and interest. It was a sufficient amount to allow the nation to operate without the private Federal Reserve. Just 5 months later, JFK was murdered, in plain sight, for all the world to see.

Immediately after Kennedy's death, the US Notes were pulled out of circulation and, except for samples in the hands of collectors, were destroyed.

The "Invisible Hand," the "Illuminati," "The Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church," the "13 Bloodlines of the Illuminati," whatever you care to call the 300 or so men who dominate approximately 7 billion people on this planet, does not matter. History clearly points out that such a group does indeed exist. This global, sinister and greedy cabal, dominate via politics and religion, and have done so for the past two millennia.

The President of the United States is only powerful on paper. Before future national presidents would ever be considered truly powerful, he (or she) must use the highest platform in the land, to speak out boldly about this gargantuan elephant in the room. The large, smelly one that has controlled and manipulated societies. To date, only JFK and Lincoln had the courage to do so.

We need someone to use the highest office in the world, to step up to the plate and make a difference. Without a doubt, this individual will either be assassinated or his political career will be ruined. His efforts however, will ignite the world, could possibly put an end to war (the biggest money making venture in the history of humankind), and we will see dramatic changes across the globe.

Referred to as the Jimmy Carter UFO Incident, while governor of Georgia, at Leary, Georgia, 1969, former President Carter and a few others witnessed an unidentified flying object. Governor Carter vowed that if he were ever president he would let the American public know that we do indeed, have visitors from other planets.

Upon taking office in January 1977, President Carter requested a meeting with then, CIA director, George Bush Sr. Carter demanded that Bush turn over classified documents about UFO's and the information in possession of the U.S. Intelligence community concerning the existence of Extra-terrestrial Intelligence. This information was refused to the president by George Bush Sr. Bush insisted that the president needed to go through several sources to have this information declassified. It was suspected that Carter was prepared to reveal this information to the American public. The Vatican Library also refused access to information regarding extra-terrestrials.

As noted in the "Sirius Disclosure Project" the American government has cataloged "57 different species of ET's." "All entities were humanoid, some looked just like us, except with advanced abilities."
