Is God trying to send us a message and the human race isn't listening?

    In the past two years; the world has suffered major earthquakes, tsunamis in Haiti and Japan, major hurricanes, volcanoes in Iceland are letting off more than steam, the Middle East still has not found peace and the mighty Mississippi River is overflowing her banks. Recently,fresh on our minds is the unexpected amount of F5 tornadoes that has hit our country. The tornadoes of Alabama, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma,and Tennessee are only the few. Then the unusual tornadoes in California and Australia.  The flooding that has taking place throughout the United States. We have also added to the mix the oil spill that took place in the Gulf of Mexico.  So think hard about this question and faith should help you answer it.    I was not trying to make a mockery about religion or anyones personal feelings about the world around us since it is always changing.

            lol Sorry Kat, I was deliberately mocking the speed of our devote atheist, Beelzedad (one of the Knowles Borg, no doubt), who does not believe in God but is 'johhny on the spot' to comment on every single religious based topic...


            My true feelings with regard to the recent rise in natural disasters is simple: the noise of humans: by vocal, by wireless communication, mechanics -planes, trains, automobiles, drills, jackhammers-- constant electric transfer across the planet is a major contributing factor, coupled with the planets fragile ecosystem and 'normal' actions.

            Confirmed reports agree that most major cities are constantly shaking, causing large and wide sound waves to effect the earth. Not 'big' enough to cause instant effects, but certainly constant bombardment/emission of them. Add that to wireless and satellite communication waves, increased use of electric energy --even solar rays/waves for energy; add to that the natural shock absorbers (called fossil fuel pockets) being drained by sonar and machinery underwater causing the plates to shift resulting in earthquakes, tsunamis, aero changes --increasing the likehood of hurricanes, monsoons, tornado's; the non stop use of explosive weapons in some places, etc and you have the perfect scenario for these events to occur.

            Interesting enough, on holiday last year to St Lucia, it took a day for my ears to adjust to the sounds on the island. I went from Manhattan's sound pounding to near silence and literally my ears were ringing. Once they adjusted, the audibility increased like ten times over. When we came back, my ears hurt from the sound for at least a few days. I can only imagine that on a global scale.

            If Creator is trying to talk to us, I doubt, with all this racket, anyone could hear Him, even in the Grand Canyon.

        1.For six months before the atomic bombings, the United States intensely fire-bombed 67 Japanese cities. Then came "Little Boy": http://www.pajamadeen.com/images/hiroshima-little-boy-atomic-bomb.jpg

        2. The Max Planck Society at a scientific symposium entitled 'Biomedical Sciences and Human Experimentation at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institutes { additional link }

        The not so obvious:

        1. Gene Pollution from Genetically Modified (GM) Food.
        more info AND more info

        ...not to forget the Science of medicine being used to Harvest Live Organs in China and other places.

        Oh and let's not forget Nerve Gas, Napalm, Crack Cocaine and the Combustible Engine, cloning and on and on.

          You are off the point here - this is what humans have done to humanity - Beelzedad was referring to the OP who was talking about what she considers god has done to humanity to get its attention.

          If you want to go the science route however you now need to list how many life years have been saved by science in improved food supply, medicine, water collection cleaning and distribution - you know the stuff that keeps you alive every day.

            Hmm, let's think for moment.
            What are those people called whom I mentioned...oh yes, they are called scientists, geneticists, biologists. Yup, all human all people.

            Although I have had my fair share of having a laugh at religion, what I find sicking is how supposed scientific supporters and employees here have the audacity to back pedal when they get their dose of reality. How easy you jump on the scoffers bandwagon until someone like me challenges you.

            You have the nerve to demand I give you props by listing the good, yet you yourself do not have the courage nor conviction --the decency to list the same for your counterpart, religion.

            I will certainly list the atrocities of science as equally as the silliness of theists. See theists and scientists are the same --people, humans expressing the depths of a failed humanism.

            Even still, after 40 odd years of daily study and observation, engagement and participation, without question, I can prove the god of religion is the same god of science. And also can prove not one theist --radical or not -- could achieve any of their measures if science had not design any of the things they use to fight.

            In short, if you do not want others to play with your toys, you shouldn't make them, show them off, share them or use them to exploit other humans. Even better you should not force them to play with your toys or else and then get mad when they rebel.

                Dear me. Seems when the critique comes your direction, you run back to your little lab for safety and squeal like a slaughterhouse animal.

                I am laughing because everyone who knows me, here and in my daily life, knows how extroverted I am. lol
                What I do find terribly interesting is how you typically sideswipe and attempt some sort of jab at me personally, instead of answering the actual post regarding your sciences dealing with humanity and religion. But you cannot validate it to any degree. I knew this, why didn't you?

                Can science handle a real critique and its good old fashioned over the knee of Philos? I doubt, but we'll soon find out. humanism is a hazbin. Yes, an old, smelly, tired couple science and religion are. Like any pathetic idea, even on your death beds, neither of you will recant. That is the sad of it.

          Always ready. Of course, I would expect that you are going to show well beyond the shadow of a doubt that they were indeed "scientific messages" that were sent and received. In other words, that was first and foremost their intent at the time. Or, is this a connection you're going to make up due to your obvious biased view of science that you have portrayed here ad nauseum?

          Are there other claims you can make that are equally silly?

          How can you even blame science? Science in itself didn't generate any of the aforementioned examples you've given. Using scientific principles enabled the creation of these instruments, but not out of a lust for science or to send scientific messages (or whatever it is you're claiming).

          Many of those examples are weapons of war. Whatever started the war is responsible, and I'm fairly certain these weren't wars in the name of "science". Likewise, genetically modified foods are an attempt to solve a hunger crisis and not out of science. All of your examples suffer the same problem. You're blaming the gun instead of the shooter.

          Besides, you can make that sort of complaint with just about anything. Computers are bad because using them too much can strain your eyes and cause joint pain. Fire is evil because if you touch it you get burned. Even drinking water too much can kill you. Pros and cons exist in any given thing.

              It seemed to me he was blaming science:

              "Hey it's memorial day weekend right, might be a good time to Remember the things science has done to humanity."

              "I will certainly list the atrocities of science"

              If not, what would be the counterpoint?

              The only relation I can see is this:

              "God is sending people a message by killing hundreds of thousands" is the OP's point that was addressed by Beelzedad.

              "Science is sending people a message by killing hundreds of thousands" is the supposed counterpoint.

              Do you see the flaw with that? Science is not an entity. It can't send any messages to people.

                it is a counterpoint using atheist logic but applied to science instead of G-d.

                in advertising we called this a creative license, like using feminine sexuality to sell beer or cars. BY using the style of reasoning that is employed by the "other", he drives home a point.

                  Yes, I understand the tactic, but that is not what is being used here.

                  Science literally can't send any messages. The atomic bomb wasn't deployed as a message that you should believe in science. Guns weren't used to threaten people to believe in science. That's the fallacy.

                  If the argument were "religion is bad because it can cause wars" and the counterpoint was "science is bad because it creates means for war", you might be closer to the mark.

                  Sadly, even with that argument there is still a flaw - religious beliefs can be a reason for war. Science is not a reason for war.

                    I know what you're saying but it's the same thing with religion. That's the point.
                    religion does not cause wars, it is used as an excuse for war just as science does not create weapons of mass destruction, people use science to create weapons of mass destruction.

                    but when speaking of science and religion in this way, you don't mean science per se, but the machinery behind it, the people behind it. religion was NOT intended by its luminaries to cause harm. but it has. So has science. science exists as a method of gaining consensus of understanding. it was NOT intended to create things that hurt us, but you know what, because of the machinery behind science, we have things out there that are hurting our children (namely artificial flavoring).

                    so once again your arguing a literary style.

                There is no such thing as a "logical fallacy" Einstein.
                And besides, my point was lost in the whining of some.
                Science, by all measures of application, is equally violent, redundant and skillfully clever as its balance, religion.

                TRUE science is ONLY to observe.
                Observation is not splicing atoms, splicing tree frogs, digging up dead bodies, taking organs from live humans, making microwaves that cause fish and Plankton to die on contact, medicines that deteriorate the liver and brain function with each little purple pill, etc. So, if anyone claims they are truly of science, then they should ONLY observe and report, not apply any of the measures mentioned. Simple. Observe the stars without modified petroleum based lens and metallic machines. Don't suck the fossil fuel from the planet to run those machines, causing nearly irreparable damage, potentially catastrophic land shifts, earthquakes, etc. Don't use it to rip the atmosphere apart in search of a better planet, or beat out the other guy in a race to space. Don't synthetically alter perfectly good foods, wrap them in petroleum based paper, inject them with animal hormones, synthetic preserves, etc etc etc.

                Now, it comes to this: take away all the mechanics (technological componants) that allowed/enabled science and also enables modern religion. Both would still be sitting on a rock, a nice cool evening breeze, staring at the stars with a smile.

                This represents my points irrefutably: Science and religion are of the same rootstock; serve the same ideology. The result: In The Name of Discovery or Freedom or Advancement and likewise any other Theos [concept of supremacy; deities] is devastation -sometimes quick and globally recognized (and often celebrated), other times slow and nearly undetectable (yet still celebrated).

                Science itself, even its application --as I expressed to mrpopo-- may not put their banner on it, but certainly they are enthusiastic when it comes to promoting, marketing, selling, advancing and reaping the benefits while enslaving humanity with their findings.

                Science is not the new religion?! Ha! If anything could be a logical fallacy, that would be it.

                Addition: "Advancements in medical technology also improved the welfare of many people: the life expectancy of the world increased from 35 years to 65 years. Rapid technological advancements, however, also allowed warfare to reach unprecedented levels of destruction. World War II alone killed over 60 million people, while nuclear weapons gave humankind the means to annihilate or significantly harm itself in a very short period of time." source  Three cheers for science -hip hip hurray!

            Actually, these wars in the name of science' fit what I exemplified. [God] forgid science attach their logo to these atrocities. Cowards! At least theists flew their banner as high as possible and the ancient magicians, astrologers, of Egypt and more, took pride in pulling live hearts from humans, pouring apothecaries down their throats to see the result and enslave the people. You say, "Do not blame science because they didn't drop the weapon or tell people to eat the food".

            Hmm, my response would be this: If you think or believe so callously in your primordial, even Medieval stave of absolution, then sadly, and provably, you are as deranged and pathetic as those whom you gave opportunity, power, property and privilege to use those weapons. Yes, science fashioned the metal, the bullet, the powder. Then displayed it for men to goggle over. Now you say, they should not use it? Ha! Build museums to display your taxidermy of animal, plant, fish, even humans and more. Then charge people to visit them? No remorse, no morals, none.

            To your favor, however, is indoor plumbing. quite characteristic and representative of the totality of science. I use it happily each day. Also in your favor (and yes, I give you much joy in this) is religion has so equally expressed the value and sincere love for humanity as well.

              I have no idea what to make of your eloquent response. It doesn't counter any of my points, it only makes a personal attack.

              If my "Medieval derangement" is provable, then please go ahead and prove it. I don't see how you'd do that but I suppose a start would be by actually countering my points instead of orchestrating these petty attacks.

              I still think you're blaming the gun (science) instead of the shooter (man).

              In any case, you can use the gun to prop a man, or you can use it to shoot him.

                I will answer all your single point(s) in your statement.
                Man you say is responsible for using the gun.
                Man made the gun.
                Man made the gun using science.
                Man saw that it was good.
                Big Bang! Man kills man.
                Mega-ton Atomic Big Bang! Man kills 250,000 men in seconds and to this very day, has maimed millions more from its effects..
                GM Food Bang! Man kills man slowly, to save a few men.

                Idea: stop making stuff and killing perfectly happy little tree frogs for the sake of knowledge then displaying them like prizes. Leave well enough alone. Very simple, really. Why did you need to splice and atom in the first place? Just cause. Well there is the proof of your 'just' cause.

                Science has forced itself upon all humanity, to the point where no one can survive without it --and if the process continues-- cannot survive with it. Earlier it was science-religion in a primitive form, forcing people to believe it or die; Then religion took the upper hand and history shows the result. As of recent, science has resumed the supreme hand --the Touch of [God]-- and has enslaved all humanity beyond recognition. Humanity is now utterly numb and sickly thanks to both. Saved one, killed 1,000. sound familiar? It should religion does the same. Save one soul, kill a thousand more in the name of...

                But, good thing science-religion as a very old couple. And no doubt, approaching death must be somewhat annoying for them. Supersaturated with so much woo-woo, la-la and plastic coated medicinal technology, they themselves don't know which end is up. The Morphine Effect...

                As for your retort about 'personal attack', it proves one of my points well. I'll have you guess which, for sport, you know. Its all in sport. FYI, what I bluntly referred to was science, not mrpopo.

                  You're deliberately leaving out an aspect of the "gun" creation.

                  Man made the gun using science because man has wants/needs to kill (for reasons such as power, money, control etc.).

                  Obviously, science is the "how", but you're making it seem like the "why". Science is just a possible means for harm just like it is a possible means for good, much like anything else. Before that, man could kill using sticks and stones, which doesn't require scientific understanding.

                  I think you're demonstrating a fundamental misunderstanding of what actually happens with science. When it was discovered that E=mc^2, people didn't just go "hey let's splice an atom, just cause". If you happened to forget, there was a war going on at the time, and it was decided that atomic bombs would be used to end it. It's not a decision I agree with, but it doesn't somehow make the use of science bad.

                  It's like blaming the theory of gravity for the use of catapults.

                  I think your biggest issue with all of this is that knowledge can be used for good and evil, and science discovers such knowledge. What is your suggestion then? Stop discovering knowledge?

                  And I haven't even touched on any of the benefits science provides daily. Ironically, for someone that hates science you keep using its products as we speak (type).

                  PS: Admittedly I misread your quote; I read "state" as opposed to "stave". Mind trick I suppose, but nothing to do with an inability to read. That's besides the point though, as the intent of you belittling my position as a "primordial piece of wood" which is evidence of "derangement" still stands. I just took the main adjective, medieval, and added your insult, derangement, and used it in quotations as a representation of the claim you were trying to make. The idea was to capture all major aspects of your attack, but clearly that was lost on you.

      Because of the temperatures involved in the formation of hurricanes and funnel storms, during the ice-ages, it stands to reason that in these post ige-age warmer temps that each passing decade, with intervals of warmer and colder temps*    would produce higher and higher velocity storms as determined by surface temps and upper air currents. Why? Because temps have been rising since the apex of the ice-age. Does it each time an ice-age ends.  There have been several. Further, the de-forestation caused by wide-spread development, not fire, and the wide use of heat holding materials in man's construction of roads, airports, shopping centers, apartment buildings, vast factory complexes, asphalt parking lots, and yes, 6 billion of us.

      Thanks for raising the question. God has been giving mankind His message concerning His plan and purpose purpose throughout the centuries since the begining of creation.  He has told us what will take place before the next phase of His plan in which Jesus will be sent back to reign and in righteousness like no other world leader has ever done and in so doing will bring about the final phase when paradise is restored as before the fall of Adam and Eve.
      The time leading up to the next phase is likened to a woman giving birth where the birth pangs get more frequent and stronger until the time of the birth.  This lead up to the next phase is spoken of the last days in which these times are summed in the words; And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
      26  Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

      It is a shame that most people ignore God's Word thinking that they are wise in their own knowledge when in fact they are fools and God has warned us of such people. "The fool  has said there is no God". The fool fails to recognize the obvious and as God says the wisdom of this World is foolishness.  God says " The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us"
      Some things will always remain a mystery and outside human comprehension and control. Who for example can make one atom? If you can make one atom, there is nothing to stop you making an infinite number. In the realms of infinity, which we cannot comprehend, all things are possible with God. 

      Our lack of knowledge and lack of power to do anything on the scale of God should make us very humble. God has given us a simple message which a child can understand and yet man has distorted God's Truth to his own destruction. Once you can realize the promises of God and what that can mean for your future, then getting the wisdom that comes from God is priceless. "Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that gets understanding".

      I am  a person who likes technology and science but with all that I know and understand which is outweighed vastly by what I do not know and understand, I value the wisdom that comes from God more highly than anything else.

    The things you mention are extremely minor when compared to other disasters this poor planet has seen.  They are expected, normal examples of the natural weather and geological forces in the world, and one reason (for instance) that rainfall is considered in "worst 100 year" examples when designing buildings and such.

    While human deaths may well be up in recent years from natural disasters it is primarily because there are ever more humans available to die and they tend to congregate in just the areas that have natural disasters.

        The earth might be billions of years old as the Bible says; "the earth was void and without form". It was after this that God created the planet as we know it.  How do you measure time before the sun was created for example.
        Evoluton is based on bad science and the difficulty with knowing the orgins of life and the Universe it that we were not there to see it.
        The time of the flood changed conditions on the earth. It was 12 months before the ark touched dry ground. We have seen the consequences one Tsunami, consider the destruction caused by one giagantic wave. If you mutliply this thousands of times during the flood when it speaks about the foundations of the deep being broken up, this gives us an insight into the great changes taking place in the earth's topography. Where did all the water go? The answer it; it is still with us. Consider the highest mountains today are under water. When you re think the conditions of the flood and the changes to the earth that took place, this answers many of the anomolies we see which evolution has not answer.

      Well, something on biblical proportions is happening. All of the glaciers are going...fast. Faster than predicted. The rivers fed by those glaciers water aall of the fields on the planet. Further, Ice holds no salt, it is all pure water, and all of it is going into the ocean, which will lead to de-salination. Sea water fish die quickly when their ecosys becomes unbalanced. Check reports of world-wide declines in the ocean harvests (as a whole, not just one fishery) NOAA is here, just down the street to investigate dead zones off the west coast. They are spreading. Nothing can stop it or the glaciers. On top of that, there are anticipated changes in the jet currents in the oceans world-wide, PLUS anomalies in the magnetic field of the earth suggest we may be experiencing a reversal of polarity.

      There is no evidence for the poles flipping polarity but there is evidence of fluctuating magnetic field strengths taken as change is magnetic polairty.

      Why is the centre of the earh molten iron? This gives the earth the density it requires for everything to survive. This is one of many factors difficult to explain. Science says the the formation of carbon atoms is extremely difficult so why is it that carbon is in such abundance for liffe to exist? Why is it the moon is exactly the size it is at the orbit it is? why is it that according to big bang there is conservation of momentum and spin. Everything should be spinning in the same direction so why is it that we have exceptions where a plante spins in the opposite direction. Then we have the problme of enthalpy . Oder does not come out of chaos and the signs are that the universe is breaking down. 
      We need not fear because the timescale is so large it does not concern us, but it is the principle involved. God set these things in motion and created everything the way it is. We need not worry about the heavens when we should be concerned with the planet we live on. It does not matter how mcuh the heavens slow  down or chaos  comes out of order for God has said tht he will create all things new. If he did it once, he can do it again so the future is secure whatever the signs might lead us to think.

        wildernessposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Your "science" is a little outdated, but let me help:

        While I am not aware that there is evidence that the magnetic poles "flip", or reverse with north being at the south pole, there is considerable evidence that the location of the magnetic north pole varies considerably. Not only is it moving measurably each year, but it has been at least 90 degrees from where it is now as evidenced by iron particles in some rocks.  Nor is it a matter of field strength; you can tell the difference between magnetic strength and polarity with a few dime store magnets of different sizes.

        The earth's core is molten because it is hot.  The earth has a particular density and spin, which greatly influences life forms on in.  Were it any different the life would be different.  There is nothing to indicate that life would be nonexistent were conditions different.  Life is the way it is because of the conditions it evolved in, not the other way around.

        The moon is the apparent size it is because it has been X years since it's formation.  You are aware that it is moving away from the earth and that it's apparent size was once much greater and will, in the future, become much smaller?  Or, if you refer to it's actual size, it is the size it is because that is what has formed in the billions of years since it came into being.  It continually increases in actual size from meteor strikes.

        Carbon is not particularly difficult to make - no more so than most elements.  While we can make only helium (via hydrogen fusion) in any quantity at all carbon is simply another element and requires a different amount of energy.  It is one of the early elements to be formed in the reactor called a star.

        Shoot a 20# bag of BB's with a shotgun at 20' range.  I guarantee that there will be all kinds of momentum, both linear and rotational, imparted to individual BB's.  In addition that chaos of the first moment of impact will settle down to a static state as soon as they hit the ground.  The solar system does not show but a very small fraction of the chaos it first had when the sun was formed; gravity has taken care of that quite nicely.

        God set nothing in motion as the story is just a myth (I can make unsupported statements, too!).

          God cannot be proved anymore than the Big bang (as scientists understand it) or Evoluiton can be proved.  We are all guilty of passing on information we receive without being able to substantiate or prove it.

          Every programme where Evolution is promoted the presenters say; " 400 million years ago...."  This is no more than quoting the text books.  None of us were there at the begnning so we do not know.

          There are many good scienists that have reached their conclusion and believe God's Word. Many will dispell the Word of God as myth because they are repaeating what they have heard or read by other disbelieving people like all those that repeat the phrase" 400 million years ago" I expect those people have not read the Bible and they do not understand what is being said. The majority of those that believe in Christianity do not understand the Truth of the Bible and have distorted the Truth to ther own destruction. It is no wonder the Bible is disregarded by many others because of the confusion caused by others distortion of the Truth.

          Our Creator knows our frame and can say; "the heart is deceitful above all else, who can know it?"  I often question people's motive which in most cases is self-pride and selfishness.  We often deceive ourselves and we have all inherited the same nature as Adam. Jesus said; "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it".   In other words we are nauturally liars and it takes a strong person not to lie.  A person cannot believe in God and say they have no sin or else as it is writen; "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us".

          I am humbe enough to say I do not know everything and I am searching for Truth. I believe that the Bible holds more answers than scientists can give us.  Scientists are mostly paid and to keep their jobs so they have to produce results or have a very good reason to get funding for research.

          Just as the one who can make an atom can control the world, so God offers this challenge; "who can tell you a matter before it happens". No scientist can say for any certainty what will happen tomorrow, let alone years and centuries in advance.  This is why I believe in God for God has given us the proof, the evidence is in the Bible and it is all around us to see, but if you do not read the Bible and you do not understand what is being told you, you will never see and therefore you will never believe.

          Paul wrote: "If in this life we have hope in Christ we are of all men most miserable"   For many they are happy to believe what they do, for they have no hope of a future.
          Happy is the man that getteth wisdon and getteth understanding.

    I do not think or believe for a single hairy second creator would use nature as a scare tactic. Maybe after a long dialogue, like say the Flood (Canopy Meltdown | Cooling of the Earth).

    Here is a thought for folk to keep in mind.
    Humans have a lot of power, in words, in thoughts.
    Humans vibrate energy at a very interesting frequency in the form of words. since the industrial revolution, human communication has multiplied by the millions, with tower and satellite sound waves bouncing all over the place. Mind you, 90% of everything humans speak is negative. Add that to the sound of mechanics all over the world, drilling, you name it.
    Have you ever seen what a small sound (sonar) wave of sound can do? Imagine the negative electrostatic energy humans are pumping into the planets atmosphere while their machines pump that same type of sound into the earth itself. Couple that with 24/7 electricity used to light the world, etc; noxious gases everywhere, non stop 24/7 television, computers and especially music -- and I think you might see something rather interesting.

    Could it be that these sound waves are causing changes in the environment? Well, in the words of Mr Peanut, "Damn Skippy!"

    smile


    Some common bio-effects of electromagnetic or other "non-lethal" (infrasonic) weapons include effects to the human central nervous system resulting in:
    physical pain, difficulty breathing, vertigo, nausea, disorientation, systemic discomfort.
    Interference with breathing poses the most significant, potentially lethal results.
    Light and repetitive visual signals can induce epileptic seizures (see Bucha effect). Vection and motion sickness can also occur. Cavitation, which affects gas nuclei in human tissue, and heating can result from exposure to ultrasound and can cause damage to tissue and organs.


    all that from a low level aka "non lethal" sound wave at 7 Hz.
    now imagine that turned up to even 50 Hz. The human would explode. Now, look at it on the global scale and wonder how much vibration humans are causing...

      The human race is listening whether they know it or not. It's like listening to the conductor on a train. You may not listen, but you are still going there. (Sorry, no jumping off.)

        The arrogance of certainty on behalf of an invisible bully. Seen the same rot on here for almost three years now,

        Michael Korda teaches the same tactics in his book "Power. How to get it. How to use it."

        If you don't do as I say HE will punish/kill/deny/burn/send to hell etc etc.

        This is gutless don't you think? smile Effective against cowards, the weak and needy, the terminally frightened and the terminally gullible.

        I'm none of those, so eat my shorts bad boy!

    If Creator is sending us a message, it is one humanity cannot hear above the hum of its own noise. While religion awaits a massive battle between angels and these supposed demons --and they of course the mighty warriors to defeat them while their fellow man in the billions suffer needlessly, mark calendar dates, swoon beneath the desert moon in he Name Of Their Gods...And while science awaits either proliferation, absolution, and/or an escape from earth technology...as both trade punches and profits, something else has been happening. Something neither can see with their egos the size of each other. Something rather brilliant and long overdue.

    Sounds quite 'religious' to me.

    I did not leave out the creation of the gun. I assumed it was understood. Hear me clearly: if science had not tinkered, defined the metal, forged it: that gun, bullet, gun powder would not exist for a man to use. Period. no excuses allowed.

    True, sticks and stones were the fashion for a while, I am not disputing that. But I do not see how sonic instruments are any better. Did you thoroughly read the example links I originally presented as a teaser?

    Yes, I am aware of his employment to build the weapon. Am also aware the war began after he completed the study and experiment with much success. Still had he not completed that experiment nor even attempted it, the probability of such a device coming into being would be -273 Kelvin.


    First, who said I 'hate' science? And who said I 'hate' religion? Second, no matter how many small good science or religion has done it does not absolve, negate nor erase the multitudes of atrocities both have done with such exceedingly wondrous knowledge (my sarcasm is showing...) There is no 'sweep it under the rug clause' when it come to life, especially human life and no less animal, plant, and ecology in general. Lastly, as for these machines, I said before, if you don't like people playing with your toys, don't make them or sell them...

    Oh bugger. Umm, I cannot indulge the fullness of that question here. But I will say this: Humanity has gained no knowledge, discovered nothing. That is a fact. They have taken elements of genetically built-in knowledge --in all of them-- and rebuilt the DNA sequence of it, to their likening...

    As again about the attack thing, it was a compliment. but again, the mind of duality wouldn't get it. you see me attacking, when all I am doing is revealing what you already have, a piece of wood either in your proverbial eye, else one you lean on for comfort, else-else one you are holding with all your strength to keep the roof of Quality from bringing down the house of Duality. Sadly, mrpopo, it is inevitable. The house will come down, whether you or the theists like it or not. Remember, you both built it, lived in it, remodeled it --even tried to refute the 'prophecy' of: "A house divided cannot stand", by forming that new roof called Quality [of life] And now, thankfully, it will be the death of both science and religion. Both have successfully flooded the world with everything it's got. Nothing left. What's done is done. now its time for both to die peacefully and let the real humanity shine through...

      Did I say you left out the creation of the gun itself? I said "aspect". Ironic for someone who likes to critique my reading skills.

      As it is, the aspect of the creation of the gun I was referring to was the reason for its creation, which you continually ignore. Before science was even established, we used weapons. Science just makes these weapons more effective, but the heart of the problem lies in the ancient thinking, not in the modern weaponry.

      What is your point? Yes, without that knowledge we couldn't make atomic bombs or nuclear reactors. Just like without the knowledge of bacteria, we couldn't make biological weapons or immunological techniques. Science can't be good or evil in itself, only the specific ways it's being used.

      So humanity has gained no knowledge, and yet has "taken elements of genetically built-in knowledge". That implies gaining knowledge. But you've managed to dodge the question anyway.

      An attack being a compliment? That's news to me.

      May I add that I find you slightly deranged as well smile

    A few last points, before I close my posts on this:

    first, both science and religion, over six millennium, have been striving for immortality. Fortunately, it cannot be achieved using their present applications, as much as they want to 'believe' it can be achieved.

    Second, science claims it is just barely beginning to reach the threshold of discovery, even now with these apparent achievements / advancements. They believe they are on the apex of a great discovery. History has shown EVERY single nation, notion, action of humanity precisely at this juncture has fallen flat, even with past references to others failures. It happened to religion and yes, science will be no different.

    The hope of humanity is lost in its own vanity. And the future of humanity does not rest on the shoulders of an invisible angry deity, nor does it rest on technology, even more it does not rest on the regression to caveman, or the self or the worship of another man but a return to understanding why humans were created and what their purpose is as the creation. Why they should walk with Creator not bow to G/gods of thought or glass, steel and gold.

    The purpose and worth of humanity far exceeds all the aforementioned by 'light years'. Focus on that. Focus on the truth, not what is good or bad, right or wrong. Let go of the failures of humanism, determinism and any other ism. Arise above your assumed discoveries, ideologies, hand-me-down ritual beliefs and their systems -synthetic or organic.

    Enjoy the night or day, wherever you are on this planet.

    The point is, the problem lies at the heart of man, not the garments he wears.
    Religion and Science are garments. They are the means through which we express our desire to control the external, without really knowing the landscapes within.

    Is God trying to send us a message and the human race isn't listening?


       Yes and NO ...


      God did send us many messages all of which was speaking of a time such as this.

      What we are now seeing isnot another message but is the results of our times of which past messages were talking about.

      or something like that.

    Quine defines logic as:

    "Logic is the study of necessary truths and of systematic ways of expressing and establishing such truths"

    so logic is a system of establishing truths...it is not therefore the truth itself.
