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.

This is the last thing we need, dinosaur tracks next to what looks like human foot prints; all be it 2 foot long,… now those ‘Intelligent’ Design nutters will be trotting out their dinosaur saddles again. As one of my favorite shows ‘Monkey Madness’ narrator said. “Heaven must love fools since it made so many of us.”
On a more serious note, there are very many artifacts which challenge conventional ‘wisdom’, that in it’s self is no problem for me, but it would be great to one day know the truth about mankind. As for a human with two foot long feet, that would make them 13 or 14 feet high (4m); sticking with the convention of that ruler next to that 2 foot long foot.

Considering that Sanskrit writings goes back to from 1500 to 400BCE, I’m not sure how much knowledge they had at that time of ‘ordinary metals’ to exist, bearing in mind that the Iron Age is taken to begin in the 12th century BC, whilst hot-forged steel; the sort of technology where you might expect phrases like ‘ordinary metals’, was used in Middle Eastern sword making dates from as early as 1100 through to 1700 AD.
Now I’m not saying that some aliens haven’t given a helping hand to humans in the past, nor that ‘Crop Circles’ and UFOs aren’t some sort of tool used to let us know we’re not home alone. It would be nice to think they would help us out of our mess… but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that, it’s more likely that if they are ‘out there’, they won’t help, they would be more like say when Big Cat Diary’s favorite Cheetah cub is about to be killed by some baboon or whatever… they will not intervene, their task is observation not participation.

I accept most of what Michael Cremo says here, with the exception that a review of our ancestry, would possibly effect our ‘Consume, be silent, die’ mentality… the Banks and Co. wont lie down that easy, it will take the people en mass realizing that they been had by big business (banks), religion and the politicians; with the aid of the Media, before they are motivated into doing something about 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.

Unfortunately the video seems to have been removed, maybe due to some pressure being exerted on YouTube? who knows. Basically the video tells the story of two Japanese people (Junichi and Toru) speaking out about the Japanese whale meat scam, and then they were thrown in Gaol. Many people have written to the Japanese Prime Minister to have them released, but as far as we know they are still behind bars.
On the 16 February 1942 the Japanese gunned down 22 nurses on a beach in Sarawak and before anybody accuses me of racism, forget it, it’s a fact. Another fact is I have nothing against the Japanese, but I do have a problem with those in charge of whatever race or religion, who claim to be honorable, when in fact they are obviously not.
I do not blame the Japanese per say, in fact it is very reassuring that some of the Japanese have enough honor to stand up to those in their government, who it appears have zero honor… proven by their obvious lies about their on going murdering of Whales being ‘scientific research’.
These are highly intelligent and very social animals, and to have that smug so and so, Joji Morishita, from the Japanese delegation at the recent Chillian International Whaling Commission, liken the murdering whales to the slaughter of cattle… an animal of little intelligence and social awareness, well it goes beyond the pale and there is not anything honorable about someone who persists with their claim of scientific research, an honorable person or country would not hide behind lies Joji Morishita.

This sort of behavior is reprehensible and as a ‘scientist’ I am offended, not about religion as such, since belief in a supreme universal intelligence should be a positive thing. However, anybody who has taken the trouble to look outside the various religious dogmas, read about the historical facts and actually think for themselves; a thing that kids of this age can’t do, can’t possibly seriously defend such things as man riding dinosaurs.
Even a most basic study of the history of the Church, shows the Churches to be not only immoral, but calculatingly so. Anybody with an ounce of intelligence that is taken in by this moronic dogma amazes me, if they preach this stuff their ability to teach this dribble to kids should be treated as a crime against humanity, on the grounds that it promotes ignorance and conflicts… this I believe is so, whether it be taught by Christians, Muslims, Zionists or even Scientologist.
“Such periods of “deepest humiliation” to the papacy were quite recurrent, and have been even into the 21st century when the extent of priesthood pedophilia was publicly exposed (Apology of Pope John Paul II, March 2002). It was Pope Stephen VII (VI), “a gouty and gluttonous old priest” (Bishop Liutprand of Cremona, c. 922–972), who ordered the rotting corpse of Pope Formosus to be exhumed from its grave of eight months, tied upright in a chair and put on trial for transgressions of the canons. In front of his putrefying body and dressed in purple and gold regalia stood the pope, his bishops, the nobles of Rome and Lamberto of Tuscany.
The “trial” was a grotesque and obscene farce. The pope paced backwards and forwards and shrieked at the corpse, declaring it guilty. A deacon, standing beside the decomposing body of the ex-pope, answered on its behalf. In this macabre incident, today piously called the “Cadaver Synod”, the deceased pope was duly condemned, stripped of his vestments, three fingers cut from his right hand and his remains dumped into the River Tiber. “In this disgusting business, he – Pope Stephen VII (VI) – cannot be excused for what followed. In declaring the dead pope deposed he also annulled all his acts, including his ordinations. His grim and grisly role provoked a violent reaction in Rome, and in late July or early August Pope Stephen was imprisoned and later strangled.” (The Popes: A Concise Biographical History, ibid., p. 160)“

Video: The Real News
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.

This video shows how close the US is to being a police state. The lesson to be learnt from this video, is to record all dealings with authorities.
Here’s what I think, if it looks like the Neocons are going to lose control of the US government, they will use the Patriot act somehow to keep power… or they will pull another WMD on Iran this time. For the record, the fundamentalist government in Iran will eventually; if they are left alone, self destruct, since most Iranians, like the Iraqis are reasonable and intelligent, as apposed to most fundamentalist, whether they be Islamic, Hindu, Zionists or Christian, they are by the nature of their religions, unbelievably Stupid and totally Ignorant.

The two things I believe should be kept out of politics, other than politicians, are Religion and Political donations… I totally resent prayers being delivered in our Australian Parliament and I do not want people who believe that the planet is only about 6,000 years old, having any say what so ever, in what we do as Australians.
On the issue of Political donations, citizens can not possibly compete with the corruptive influence of political donations. Corporations, particularly multi national corporations views; which are solely profit motivated, can hardly be seen to be in the interest of the majority.
Now regarding the Drug companies. They have in my opinion totally corrupted the testing and reporting of their products… almost nothing of what they say can be believed, and they have manipulated the system to the point now, where the people, who are supposed to protect us, are controlled by the Drug companies and this video plainly shows us this.
