Metal Working Before God Created The Earth??

If you believe in a evangelical fundamentalist God

What in modern times is the country Armenia, was in ancient times a very valuable resource for mankind…it is thought that much of mans knowledge of metallurgy was gained here around the ancient city of Metsamor.  It was occupied from around 7,000 BC to perhaps 1700 AD and was an astronomical site as well as metallurgical.

Excavation of the ruins has discovered a very large metal industry including a foundry with 2 kinds of blast furnaces.  The foundry is known to have extracted and processed gold, copper, and several types of manganese, zinc, strychnine, mercury, and iron.  Metal from the foundries of Metsamor found their way to Egypt, Central Asia and China.

Several Huge underground caves have been uncovered that are believed to have been storehouses for base metal, as well as a grain storage for winter months.  The first iron in the ancient world may have been forged here.

It is believed that metal working got its start there about 5,000 BC…one more blow to the Young Earth Creationists who STILL believe the earth was formed by a Mesopotamian god around 4000 + BC, and Tubal-Cain invented metal working well after the creation, but before the “Flood” on or about 2400 BC

There are many very ancient human sites around the Armenia/Turkey area going back at least 9,000 to 11,000 years or more.  The whole Babylonian/Turkey/Armenia/Iran/Iraq/Israel/Egypt area is the largest cradle of human civilization…although humans were not originally from there, when we migrated out of Africa to the areas they were found to be very conducive to human life.

Arrested for a Suntan

“Women arrested and imprisoned for having suntans? Check.
Women stoned to death for adultery? Check.
Random persecution, detainment, violent arrest, and imprisonment of women’s rights activists and mourning mothers? Check.
Women blamed for causing earthquakes? Check.
Use of makeup illegal because it makes women dishonorable? Check!

Sounds like the Islamic Republic of Iran is all set for membership to the U.N Commission on the Status of Women! Welcome, Iran, and thank you for helping to set the bar for the status of women around the world.”

Ahh those lovely Muslim’s and their misogynist treatment of women…what are we going to do with them?

Islam…the religion of death and destruction.

Quote of the day

“Written by feudal tribal patriarchs rather than an ethical designer, the Biblical God of both Testaments is not moral because it causes, orders or approves of a host of immoral actions. Among them genocide, ethnic cleansing and murder involving the death of adults and children, often on a mass scale, plus looting and theft and terror based slavery, as well as torture, autocracy and misogyny. The Judeo-Christian scriptures are not able to provide a moral basis for individual or societal morality.” Gregory S. Paul

Bush ‘plans Iran air strike by August’

May 28th. Headline from the Asia Times Online out of Hong Kong.

The George W Bush administration plans to launch an air strike against Iran within the next two months, an informed source tells Asia Times Online, echoing other reports that have surfaced in the media in the United States recently.

Two key US senators briefed on the attack planned to go public with their opposition to the move, according to the source, but their projected New York Times op-ed piece has yet to appear.”

Story Here: Asia Times

We really need another war, don’t we? So far in Iraq we have lost over 4000 young Americans and it’s going to cost well over a trillion dollars. America is already broke; we just don’t realize it yet. China and Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries already own our economy. Bush and his policies have hocked our children’s, children’s, children’s future.

Isn’t Russia and China pretty friendly with Iran? Can you say “End Times?”

If this attack really happens, we need to immediately start bending over to kiss our ass goodbye.

Update 9.27.08  Well so much for that prognostication.

Nukes in Iran?

President Bush made headlines back in October by warning that Iran’s nuclear activity
could be the cause of World War III.

He chose his words carefully: Bush did not say World War III would be the consequence of Iran attaining a nuclear weapon; he said, “If you’re interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon.

I would posit that they already have that knowledge, as does most of the rest of the civilized world.

“The latest U.S. National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran, which expresses the consensus of all 16 branches of the intelligence community…No Nukes in Iran and they are not pursuing the ability to make them.

President Bush talks like he still wants to go to war with them.

We have already spent our grandkids inheritance, and probably their grandkids inheritance on a lost cause. Last I heard over half a TRILLION DOLLARS. Sure to be much more than this when it’s all over, if ever.

We have arguably lost a tremendous amount of respect, trust, and prestige around the whole world. It’s a mostly invisible loss, but make no mistake, it will be felt by us Americans.

Of course the worst tragedy of the whole thing is that we have lost over 3,000 of our best young men and women. I don’t know about other people, but this weighs on my soul every day, even though they are not my sons and daughters. Our children are precious…to all of us.

Is continuing the war in Viet…sorry…Iraq, and possibly starting one in Iran, Really a sane thing to do?

How much safer is America now?? Have we made Iraq a safer, better country, have we made any of the rest of our poor world safer??

Unfortunately, world leaders down through time have always been able to spread propaganda, rallied the troops, lie to their citizens, and in general mistreat the humans they have control over. This administration, so far, seems to be repeaters of history.
