It’s the minority running things in Israel and the US that spoil it for the rest of us.
I’ll say again, someone saying that their God says they are in the right and his chosen people, is no basis for justice, and an ability to miss direct or tell barefaced lies, is not going to fool anyone… but it may suffice for one eyed Judges, or a United Nations, where a majority is rendered impotent by one nation’s consciousless vote.

The thought that occurred to me whilst watching this clip was. Is it effecting animals? If it is, then neurosis is unlikely to be the cause. If it’s not effecting then, then either it’s all bullshit or there is a reason why it’s not effecting animals… I’d be checking out the animals.
As for our doctors, most are little more than drug pushers with unwarranted superiority complexes… many doctors drink too much, they smoke, they take recreational drugs and are addicted to prescription drugs, they get into troubles with gambling debts, cheat on their partners, and they kill more than 20,000 patients a year in Australia through their incompetence (and a similar percentage of patients apparently in the US and probably elsewhere), doctors also commit suicide and murder, in short they are human, not gods.

Prepped precocious princess perhaps, but at about her age, I, shortly after arriving in Britain, from Kenya via Norway, was forced by my non denominational school to attend church… I thought it was a load of bullshit, so I asked my mum to write me a note telling the school that they were not to force me to go to church.
Now considering that the Judaic, Christian and Muslim religions, all have as their earliest text the Old Testament, complete with the 10 Commandments, I shall judge them by their own Laws.
ONE: ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’ – But money and or Power seems to be the exception.
SIX: ‘You shall not murder.’ – Well that one’s totally ignored it seems by all three of the aforementioned religions.
EIGHT: ‘You shall not steal.’ – This one’s broken again by the big three, Israel is steeling Palestine, the US, Iraq Oil, and Muslims stole 4 jets and flew 3 of them into 3 buildings.
NINE: ‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.’ – Well that’s a no brainer, they all lie constantly.
TEN: ‘You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.’ – That’s another no brainer, they’ve all used slaves which means they have either actively stolen other countries people, or they have bought stolen people.
That’s 5 out of 10 Commandments that seem to have little or no meaning for either the Judaic, Christian or Muslim religions… I wonder if our little prepped precocious princess could explain to our religious nutters the meaning of the word Hypocrisy… better make sure she has a guardian if she visits the Catholics, strange how celibacy seems to have led to sexual predatory behavior, or attracts it’s participants.
Here’s my favorite rule – Your silence is taken as consent.
Damn I forgot to have a go at Bill O’Reilly… it’s amazing how much money Murdoch is paying that individual who seems to have no brains, manners, conscious or guts.

I love everything about this clip… and I’m going to show more of them.
Initially when I saw the title of this video clip I growned, not another Holocaust story… why is it that every single day I hear about ‘The Holocaust’, I’m sick of the manipulation. There are many other countries who have experienced similar atrocities. According to Wikipedia since the 1490s “indigenous population of the Western Hemisphere may have declined by as many as 100 million.”
Since the 19th century there have been countless millions of people murdered in China by the Chinese governments of the various times… and by the British Royals East India Company, who were largely responsible for the deaths of countless millions of people in China between the two Opium wars.
In the 19th century, “Eighty percent of the total Herero population and 50 percent of the total Nama population were killed in a brutal scorched earth campaign led by German General Lothar von Trotha.” – Wikipedia
Joseph Starlin; a Jesuit educated nutter, killed who knows how many millions of Russians.
“The Armenian Genocide was conceived and carried out by the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1923, resulting in the deportation of nearly 2,000,000 Armenians, of whom 800,000 men, women, and children were killed, 500,000 survivors were expelled from their homes, and which succeeded in the elimination of the over 2,500-year presence of Armenians in their historic homeland.” – Wikipedia
The Belgian King Léopold’s campaign effectively murdered something like 10 million Congolese.
Pol Pot, with the blessing of the USA, Britain, France and Australia… in fact just about everyone in the west, either condoned or ignored his murdering of 1.7 million Cambodians, almost 30% of the population, largely because the Cambodians refused to become involved in the Vietnam conflict and the ‘better dead than Red’ philosophy.
I could go on, but it’s depressing. All of those genocides were largely for profit and greed, as indeed will be any future such events, including the more likely Mid East and possible WWIII. Yet, with the exception of Darfur and Sadam’s genocide of the Curds, both of which are contemporary genocides that were largely ignored by the rest of the world. The only Holocaust we hear about constantly, is that of the Jews carried out by the Nazis, who incidentally, were financed by Jewish bankers. Also, unlike most of the aforementioned genocides, those victims of genocide weren’t guilty of carrying out their own genocide and effectively steeling the Palestinians land because of an alleged Zionist god, who wanted his ‘chosen people’ to have it… OK my god said I can have Washington, but I don’t really want it so America can keep it.

The possibility of an extreme human antiquity is no surprise for me, and although I’m intrigued by the fact that there are so many pyramids in so many countries, I’m not convinced of alien involvement.
The other point I’ll make is the Judaic, Christian and Muslim religions are themselves a mosaic of earlier religions. Almost all of the tales that make up their religions, come from those earlier religions, most of which were based on the female gods which fitted in with the more hunter gatherer cultures.
The male, more war like gods derive from the more settled civilizations, where agriculture had been developed, giving the various people opportunities to increase their free time and populations, develop wealth, greed and finally armies.

I am a fan of Gore Vidal, which I may or may not have said before. I love the idea of the majority of people at his talks, applauding the idea of taxing the churches. For some years I’ve tried, unsuccessfully, to get clubs and sporting organizations to have themselves made into religions… so they can have the tax free benefits of churches.
My point was and is, using the church’s business plan as a templet, I can’t see how the authorities could get away with denying a claim for instance, that a Skydiving club’s not engaged in worshiping a Skygod of some sort… I’d create a mythology of talking birds, commandments written on clouds etc. to pad out the theology and I’d do my very best to look like a pope when questioned about the validity of our religion.

Gore Vidal was virtually an American blue blood, a person with connections who one might have expected to be a Democratic presidential candidate, except I think he is/was far too smart and far too straight forward for them… and being gay with the mid-western god botherers wasn’t going to help.

It’s about an hour long and is not recommended for minors, nor the squeamish.
For 605 years the Inquisition went on and during this period, the Catholic church murdered as many as 50 million people… there inevitable defense is either, it’s exaggerated or that was then, things were different. Well, in another hundred years or so, if we and the church survive, they will be using the same sort of excuses, for their actions in the present time.
For further reading, I suggest David Yallop’s ‘In God’s Name’, a book about the alleged murder of Pope John Paul I, in 1978.

Firstly a disclaimer. I am an agnostic, mind you, to the reader who has admirably persisted reading my brain injured dyslectic scribbles, this is not news to them I guess. But what may not be quite so plain, is something that I picked up earlier from my adopted country and culture; some of you may quite rightly stumble over ‘culture’ and Aussie appearing in the same sentence so I separated them, where most Aussies helped and encouraged those less fortunate, a philosophy all but wiped out by our previous Prime Minister John Winston Howard, with his right wing fundamentalists and the Australian version of like minded ‘greed is good’, pentecostalist Hillsong Church, along with their, long term homicidal theological Inquisitional assassins, in fact the whole Jesuits, Opus Dei we are right and you are wrong brigade, which I Hate with; to use ironically Mel Gibson’s word, a Passion… ah, that feels much better now.
OK, so it is not surprising that the various branches of the Christian & Muslim religious ‘faiths’; where faith is defined as an absolute certainty in the trustworthiness of another, would not want discussion of the prospects that, if the Old Testament is to be taken literally, then from the earliest period, namely the section concerned with Adam & Eve, is obviously flawed.
According to the Bible, Adam was lonely so God took one of his ribs; men actually have 2 not 1 less ribs than women, and created his female companion Eve, with which Adam fathered two children, Caine and Able… we’ve all heard the story how Cain killed Able, but what we haven’t heard about, is where did the rest of us come from, if the bible is literally true?
The other part of the story the various Christian churches undoubtedly wont talk about, is the possibility that Jesus did not in fact die after only six hours on the cross, that he went on to marry and have kids to his own half sister. It’s hardly surprising that this prospect is not widely discussed, since it brings the whole story, in fact the whole plethora of the Judo, Christian and Muslim ideological doctrine, into doubt, if it is to be based solely on the absolute truth of what is written in their various texts.
Any cognitive questions of these various texts, creates at best a conundrum, at worst, is evidence of a stunning calculated deception, which has resulted in a majority of largely poor, who have been told constantly since infancy, in the next life, if you follow our rules, you will be rewarded… a story put forward by a ruling class who have accumulated an inordinate amount of wealth and power, through the marketing of their product of faith.
This form of indoctrination is referred to as brainwashing when it is used in a similar manner by other ideologies, in some cases other Christian fringe dwellers, with other even more extreme views or ways, or in other cases for example, by supposed Communists, which despite supposedly being arch enemies of Christianity, can be defined by the very same phrase i.e. ‘a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production’… it’s all very ironic and some what worrying as you will see as we progress through this series of videos.

The thing that always strikes me when I hear the phrase ‘the chosen people’ is, wait a second, I want an independent ruling on that… some book written by Jews saying that Jews are ‘the chosen people’ isn’t enough to convince me. I want proof, proof not vested interest disguised as faith.
Now a second ago I mentioned some book written by Jews well I misspoke, the ‘Old Testament’ was allegedly written by god for the Jews. The ‘New Testament’ on the other hand was compiled by Emperor Constantine, who in a bid to control the fragmenting Roman Empire, needed to bring all the differing religious factions in the Roman Empire under a single god.
So a bunch of vested interests got together, in what’s referred to as the ‘First Council of Nicaea’, which was held in present-day Turkey; Constantinople now Istanbul was named after Constantine, who from memory ruled the Roman Empire from there. Anyway, Constantine, after much toing and throwing came up with the ‘New Testament’, however, not all present agreed, The Greek Orthodox didn’t agree, along with several others such as the Jews and… a bit later on, the Muslims weren’t happy either.
Well eventually they did come up with a ‘New Testament’ and a new church was established eventually in Rome and it was headed by a series of Popes to the present day, which is a worry when you look at some of supposedly ‘God’s Representatives’ like for instance Pope Alexander VI (1 January 1431 – 18 August 1503).
Now in relation to the video clip, here’s a coincidence. The ‘New’ Testament (part 2 of the Bible) was created by a Pomie (a Brit also referred to as a ‘pommy bastard’), all be it a Roman who’d campaigned in Britain (Emperor Constantine)… and the coincidence that will stun most, well for a starter, Tony Blare has converted to the Catholic faith, true, but it’s not the coincidence I was talking about, I’m just teasing, though he’s done his bit with the War in Iraq sorry, the War on Terrorism. No the coincidences to which I was alluding to, and there are a few interesting ‘coincidences’, one is the British Queen’s… and probably the next King’s bit in all this, the other ‘coincidences’, is a law concerning the Church of England’s preferential treatment, it’s to end soon, and the Roman Catholic religion moves up a notch towards total control.
