Homo-sapiens and God

Of course the ‘Creationists’ get around this by swearing that our ability to age-date artifact, rocks, and other items is faulty and the earth has only been around for 6,000 years, but we know they are mislead and very very wrong.

War Profiteering


.
Billions and billions of taxpayer dollars go into the blackhole of government subsidies and programs every year…the majority of this money ends up with the 1%…the cronies of our senators and congresspersons. It’s not used to create more jobs…it’s used to line the nest of the recipients.

No body cares; this 1%, and the government officials they pay-off, have brainwashed and confused the common person so well they even end up defending the rich and ruthless traitors…think tea-party.

Are You A Rich Christian Republican

Cost Of The War On Terrorism

A new report from Brown University has estimated that the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the counterinsurgency in Pakistan will end up costing 4 TRILLION dollars and leave around 225,000 dead civilians and soldiers. In addition over half a million disability claims have been filed with the VA.  It is estimated that over 8 million people have been displaced in the war-torn countries.  Full story

One also has to add to the cost of the wars; parts of our constitution, of which I think the largest loss is the right to privacy.  We have also lost our sense of dignity when we fly anywhere.  The sixth amendment–right to a speedy trial is going, as is Habeas corpus–the right to go before a judge and be heard and hear the charges against you.  We keep edging closer to a dictatorial government…it creeps in slowly so we don’t notice so much.  It’s kind of scary to lose so much.

Do you think we will have to give up wars because they cost to much?  One can only hope.

The Justice Of God…The Mercy Of Christ

“All that the human race has suffered in war and want, in pestilence and famine, in fire and flood, — all the pangs and pains of every disease and every death — all this is as nothing compared with the agonies to be endured by one lost soul. This is the consolation of the Christian religion. This is the justice of God — the mercy of Christ.

This frightful dogma, this infinite lie, made me the implacable enemy of Christianity. The truth is that this belief in eternal pain has been the real persecutor. It founded the Inquisition, forged the chains, and furnished the fagots. It has darkened the lives of many millions. It made the cradle as terrible as the coffin. It enslaved nations and shed the blood of countless thousands. It sacrificed the wisest, the bravest and the best. It subverted the idea of justice, drove mercy from the heart, changed men to fiends and banished reason from the brain.

Like a venomous serpent it crawls and coils and hisses in every orthodox creed. It makes man an eternal victim and God an eternal fiend. It is the one infinite horror. Every church in which it is taught is a public curse. Every preacher who teaches it is an enemy of mankind.

Below this Christian dogma, savagery cannot go. It is the infinite of malice, hatred, and revenge.”
Robert Green Ingersoll

Coming May 5th.–National Day of Prayer

This coming Thursday, May 5th  is this year’s “National Day of Prayer

I’m wondering what the Christian expectations are for this day, because last years was such a bust…after all I don’t think ANY of the good prayers were answered.

I expect a few million were praying for world peace or at least that American troops would be out of harm’s way in Afghanistan and Iraq.  From what I read, last year was the worst year of all for our troop deaths in the Middle East.  Also we seem to be party to an intrusion into Libya, just what we need another way of getting our finest sons and daughters killed.

Other things on our plate last year and early this year was the oil spill in the Gulf, very high gas prices, nuclear meltdown in Japan, thousands dead from earthquakes, the tsunamis in Japan that killed many thousands (count still going on from what I understand).  Africa is still losing tens of thousands of children to starvation and easily treatable diseases every year…there seems to be no end to this tragedy no matter what is done…by anyone.

America is suffering from record unemployment (as bad as the depression of the 1930’s), home foreclosures that put thousands of families on the street and welfare (this Republicans want to put a stop to).  Our countries deficit because of the wars and the incredibly disgustingly greedy bankers on Wall Street, is so high most people can’t even comprehend the vastness of the effect it will have on our future.

Aids is still rampant and in many countries women are still subjugated and treated as 3rd. class property,  and still raped by the tens of thousands with virtual impunity. Often they themselves get into trouble and are held responsible for their own rape.  This is just int olerable…as humans we ought to be deeply ashamed that it still goes on.

The divorce rate in America has been hovering around 50% for years and years in America and seems to be impervious to prayer, and I have yet to hear of prayer affecting birth defects or limb amputations…our returning soldiers from the Middle East who have had legs and arms blown off by IED can’t seem to regrow those limbs no matter how hard they and their family pray.

So of the “good” prayers I imagine millions of people all over the country are going to  make…will ANY of them get answered?

I don’t think so.
