A Nation Greatly Divided

There is an interesting article in the LA Times – Mitt Romney leads a party packed with paranoids and fabulists. The word fabulists simply means liars. In other words, the republican party is filled with paranoid liars.

The cartoon shows an older couple compared to a younger couple. With the younger couple wearing an obama pin.

A few days ago there was a news program talking about how the younger generations are growing more liberal, while the older conservatives are fading away. For example, for the first time in history, less then 50% of the voters say they are Protestant Christians.

Not only is the nation divided by political parties, we are also divided by liberalism and conservatism, and we are divided by religion, or rather the lack of religion.

How radical Islam spreads hate

Back in the mid-1990s my wife and I were driving through a poor section of port arthur Texas. There is a welding supply store near the port of port arthur, but to get to that area you have to go through a poor section.

I needed a part for my job, we went to the welding supply store and bought what I needed.

On the way home we stopped at a red light where some blacks (nicely dressed) were handing out papers. I rolled down my window and asked for a paper. The guy would not even look at me, he looked to the side and handed me the paper.

When my wife and I got home I looked at the paper. It was a newspaper filled with racial hate articles pointed towards whites.

There was a cartoon in the paper that showed a couple of people dressed up like the KKK putting bandannas, drugs, guns and beer on a table.

The second image of the cartoon showed a couple of black guys walking to the table.

The third and fourth images were the black guys putting on the bandannas, drinking, taking drugs, then finally killing each other with the guns that were on the table.

In the images, the two klan members were in the background laughing at the blacks.

The caption under the cartoon said something like “do not fall for the tricks of the whiteman”,,, or something like that.

What does this say about a Islam when they blame others for their lack of self-control? Did the klan members in the cartoon “make” the blacks drink, take drugs and shoot each other? No they did not. Those actions were a choice.

Free speech and freedom of religion

Over the past few days there has been a lot of talk on the internet about freedom of speech, and how that speech might anger certain religious groups.

If you are offended by what someone says about your religion, too bad. Being offended does not grant you special rights. Being offended does not grant you the right to restrict the rights of others.

The Muslims and the Jews say Jesus was not the messiah. That denial is offensive to me. How dare they say Jesus was not the messiah. I think Jews and Muslims need to shut the hell up, and accept Jesus as the messiah.

As much as we have the right to follow a religion, we should also have the right to be free from religion.

If someone chooses not to follow a religion, nobody should have the right to force their religion upon others. So where do Muslims get off killing Christians who renounce Islam?

Sharia law VS freedom of speech

If we speak out against Islam, the followers of sharia law are supposed to kill us.

So what are we supposed to do, quietly submit to Sharia law and Islam? I do not think so.

As usual, Acts17Apologetics has posted another excellent video on the sharia law issue.

Not only should we have freedom of religion, but we should also freedom “from” religion. By submitting to restrictions on insulting islam, we are submitting to a religion.

The question you need to ask yourself, do you want to live under sharia law? If we are prohibited from insulting islam, what is next?

Random thoughts September 18 2012

2012 Elections

Well, it seems Mitt Romney stuck his foot in his mouth by saying Obama supports see themselves as victims, and that Obama appeals to voters who do not pay taxes.

In other words, the people who vote for Obama are black, lower class and live off welfare.

Yep, I pretty much agree.

Its like the lady during the 2008 election that said if Obama is elected, she will not have to worry about her mortgage.

World War of Religion

Time has an interesting article saying the world war of jihad is almost over. Osama bin Laden is dead, Al-Qaeda leaders are being killed with drone strikes, it finally looks like we have beat back the enemy.

The problem is, who is the enemy? While Al-Qaeda might be losing ground, radical Muslims continue to spread to Europe, Canada and the United States.

Al-Qaeda was based on an idea, ideas are much harder to kill the people. What was one of the driving factors behind Al-Qaeda? Islam.

Whether you like it or not, the war of religion is taking a different route. It is impossible for a group is peasants operating out of caves to bring about the downfall of Europe and the U.S. But what they can do, if infiltrate our society and use our own laws against us.

Over the next few years, maybe the next decade or so, expect to see the term “creeping sharia”. Its where sharia law slowly creeps into a society.

Bottomless pit in the book of revelations

Revelation 9:1-2 “And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”

I have spent a good part of my adult life wondering what the “bottomless pit” was. How can something be absolutely “bottomless?” The world is not without end. If you dig a hole deep enough, you are going to reach the other side of the planet.

The answer I have come up with, the bottomless pit is not really “bottomless.” What is using to fill the hole never fills it.

Maybe we are looking at the pit in the wrong direction? Instead of thinking about the pit as a bottomless pit, lets think about what is being used to fill the pit.

Its like when someone is eating, someone else might make a reference as to where all of the food is going. To the observer it “looks” like the person doing the eating has a bottomless pit for a stomach.

Christianity will be replaced by Islam

My heart hurts to say this, but Christianity is dying. The number of people attending church has been dropping over the past few decades. More young people then ever before are declaring themselves to be atheist. Organizations like the ACLU and atheist groups are waging an all out war on religion in the public sector.

Christianity is being driven underground, and in some cases to extinction, by anti-religion zealots.

This is where Islam comes in. Where Christians usually respect court orders, sharia law does not recognize man-made laws.

When asked about taxes, Christ said “render until Caesar what is Caesars.” In other words, respect the government and abide by the laws.

In contrast to Christ teachings, Islam would have never recognized Caesar as a leader, much less respected the laws that Caesar passed. The only law is sharia law, period.

Christ taught us to love one another.

Islam teaches its followers to kill anyone that disrespects Islam and/or Allah.

Where would humanity be without religion

Over the past few decades there has been a move away from religion. The mindset seems to be, who needs religion when we have science?

Science does not unify people under a common idea, science does not teach a code of morals and values. How many atheist charities are there compared to religion based charities? When a family needs assistance, does the local atheist take up donations?

Where would society be today if religion never existed? I figure we would still be in the iron age, or about 20% behind where we are today.

100,000 – 8,000 years ago

Something happened around 6,000 or 8,000 years ago that made mankind stop roaming the countryside looking for food. What made mankind set down the seeds of civilization? We raised livestock, we planted gardens, we formed communities, we formed nations, we formed governments. Why did it take humanity over 100,000 years to go from hunter gathers, to building nations?

Why was mankind on the planet for 100,000 years, then all of a sudden there was a growth on society in the past 6,000 years? What about the other 94,000 years? What happened for society not to develop?

Why did humanity all of a sudden develop over the past 4,000 – 8,000 years?

Why didn’t we have cities and government 50,000 years ago?

What changed between 100,000 years ago, and 6,000 years ago?

Our modern human civilization began when we moved from a hunter / gatherer, to a farmer / gardener.

The Survivalist Monastery Theory

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalistWhile reading “The Civilization Of The Middle Ages” by Norman Cantor (which I do not recommend the book by the way), on pages 150, 151, 152, 153, 154,,, the author discusses how monasteries became a source of education in the middle ages. Monasteries were not well rounded education establishments, as they were only interested in teaching Latin and scripture. Creating literature outside of the Holy scripture was suppressed.

One thing that monasteries did do, they preserved scripture. One of the reasons why we have certain books in our modern Holy Bible, is because some scribe copied the books during the the middle ages.

Monasteries preserved scripture. The monks in the monasteries taught people how to read Latin, and thus how to read scripture.

How does this monk, monastery and scripture stuff tie in with survivalism?

As monks taught holy scripture, so should survivalist teach self-reliance.

As a survivalist, it is your duty to go forth and spread the knowledge of self-reliance.

When people hear the word “monk”, thoughts of living in silence, or roaming the country side preaching the gospel to peasants comes to mind. That is not how things were like. Monks lived in the monastery, some tried to isolate themselves from the outside world, they were educated, copied holy text (scribes), and tried to live a life separated from the outside world.

Most hated book in the world

survivalistWhat is the most hated book in the world? I would have to say the Bible.

Why is the bible hated? Because it speaks the truth. The undeniable truth that we should love one another.

Why do so many people try to discredit the bible

When we have a limited amount of information from a time period, and that information is discredited, what are we left with?

If we discredited Caesar’s commentaries on the Gallic wars, what would we be left with? Are we to say the commentaries are a work of fiction? How do we prove the Gallic wars ever happened? Besides writing, what do we have to prove that Julius Caesar ever lived?

Sharia Law in London and the coming battlefield

Over the past year, maybe 2 years, I have been hearing about how certain groups are calling for sharia law to be imposed in places like London. The problem I see, London already has its own set of laws.

And I thought Catholics and Pentecostals were pushy with their religions.

It seems that Europe is going to be a battlefield of not only religion, but also for ideology. Our democratic society, our tolerance and our kindness is going to be our downfall.
