What I was getting at was that our government leaders will use thier power to cover the Azzes of these multi-national corporations .The Bush war is an example of how much power these corporates have. When Saddam Hussein would no longer play ball with the oil multi-national corps Bush found a way to take him out. Even when those that attacked us on 9/11 were saudies. Just one example of the corporate power within our government.
They would love to run a pipe line through our country - they don't care about the land or the people the care about the more profit.
Ask your self why politicians are allowed to take secret money from multi-nationals - via. undisclosed supper packs for their political funding. Our once government of the people and by the people is no more.
It has been purcased by corporations. Multi-national corporations are taking over with there money and the power it brings them. They are running the middle class out of business, once accomplished they set their own prices for goods and services that they may profet more. As their money grows so does their power.
The isis fighters have made the progressive west their enemy. Bombing and battling them the west has only enhanced their beliefs. When truly their enemy is within themselves (fear of change)
Their own fear of change is so powerful that they think to use fear as a weapon of terror.
Having faith in a religion that thinks to be acting for God is the heigth of man's arrogance.
If China is giving food and comfort to the displaced perhaps it is needed.
The choice is ours to embrace the struggle that comes with change and by willingly doing so move towards a more caring condition. Or remain steadfast in the archaic religions that are now at odds with each other continuing this cycle of unyielding faith that creates our own separatism. No matter change will come, we can not stop evolution even in its denial. This is truly a time in our minds evolution that we are now as the butterfly beginning its struggle to break free from a chrysalis of religious faiths that have given us much comfort in our transformation.
We are seeing an offshoot of religious fanatics that have gone out of control as they thinking to be acting for God. (the height of mans arrogance)
Fearful of change these archaic believers are holding fast to old beliefs. They have made the progressive west their enemy. When truly their enemy is within themselves (fear of change)
They are able to recruit the young among us because they have become disenfranchised even fearful of the societie they live in. This is what isis is all about. The fear of change within them is so powerful that they think to use fear as a weapon of Terror *
They say that Islam is a religion of peace and that Jesus taught love.
It seems to me that its time these religions apply these tenets.
If we are to evolve towards a more caring world start using this simple philosophy of Love.
Love is the anchor to our lives
love is connected to our lives by the chain of people
we care for and in turn care for us
the more links in our chain
the deeper waters we may travel
This creation and all the life within it was and is a creation of light
We are indeed creations of the light and from the light
We are as drops of water each having our own form
As drops of water that return to the sea to become one with it
Such is our soul as our body dies so does the ego and our energy returns to the source from which it came
Our soul is immersed within a sea of light - within the light is contained all the love and caring for the collective life within it
Belief in faith and faith in belief is a closed loop.
You can not change ideology with a bullet or with the terror of beheadings.
Beliefs can only be changed by education and an open mind.
Religions should get together find a common thread and weave a garment that gives us all comfort.
(good luck with that)
Fanatics within exist within archaic religion, it is driven by their own fear of change.
Indeed longtruck - how can anyone in their right mind expect God to reward them with an after life when they squander the very life God has given them.
To think to be acting for God is the height of man's arrogance.
There are two major religions believing Satan to be Gods fallen angel.
In christianty there is a story of Satan and the forbad (forbidden) fruit of self awareness.
We would like to think that evil exists some where out side of ourselves allowing us to deny responsibility for its existance - Truth is that it exists within each man, by his own ego whether it be his alone or as a group the ego's actions can cause pain to others. We must always do our best to keep our ego in balance with the soul *
light and darkness in balance - Yen Yang
Harming one another for self satisfaction with acts of vengeance in the name of God is the heigth of man's arrogance.
If I were the Prince of Darkness seeking power within this creation of light I would do it with a simple promise to man, giving him the thought of a better life after this one. By doing so this creation of God becomes of less value.
The question makes sense.
The universe in time will collect itself by its own gravity - it again compress its matter to the point of fusion at which time can not be messured and does not exist. Time and space begain once again with fission -
The Big Bang * the beginning time
Your answer would be that darkness was before the light
P.S. when money became an authority over moral value we as a people yielded to its acquisition. Indeed money is a problem when it comes to moral values.
Man will pillage the land and sea to accumulate more of it. He looks to profet from war, Men may rob, steal and cheat get it. Paying for politicians that will favior the endeavors to gain even more money.
It is said that money is the root of all evil.
Money is a problem it divides the populous - the proof is in the disparity of it.
The moon is revolving in its stable orbit for now - The force is gravity that is keeping it suspended. Everything evolves in its time for now we have a balanced system that is supporting life. These statements were not assumptions they are facts of science.
Big_hairy - If you can't see that this is a caring creation of life - you may be blinded by your own ego. Its not about us its about all life. Our actions and judgements of good and bad come from within ourselves (the ego)
Big_hairy - I believe that both are true.
And then there was light* - big bang - this Creation of life was then put into motion (Evolution)
The universe is kept in balance through a series of caring forces
without these forces there would not be a universe
even an atom has its own caring force keeping its electrons in suspension
if not for different caring forces suspending masses of matter keeping everything in balance
there would not be any suspension -without suspension time would not exist
without time for life - life would not exist
the elements in the universe are all we have we depend on them for our survival
through thier caring forces the elements have made up living things and now support the life they created
this special interaction between nonliving and living is a gift of care and caring is what its all about
if not for love life would not exist
God is love the highest degree of caring contained in all of natures elements
The Almighty is this creation in its entirety
One creation of light with the sole purpose of caring for the life within it
In 1983 - 241 were killed - in Beirut at our Marine barracks - The gaurds hand no live ammo in their guns when the trucks crashed the gates..
Ronald Reagan went golfing the next day.
It seems to me that the ego based archaic religions are a large problem in todays world.
To think to be acting for God is the height of mans (the ego) arrogance.
Thinking to be rewarded with an other God given life when you squander this one - is an egos veil.
