SHAME ON THOSE CHRISTIANS!!!

SHAME on THOSE CHRISTIANS!!!

When I was a child, I learned that a Christian is someone who will defend the truth, someone that keeps his words once he has enunciated them. My teachers taught me that a Christian should not be a POLITICIAN because POLITICIANS are renowned for being “LIARS and FAKE.” I do not have any problem with politicians, [one rarely finds honest ones]… My question is with those Christians who knowingly elect them while claiming they promote “good moral values”; shame on those Christians.

Today, in the US and abroad, I have discovered that some Christians are worse than politicians. Not only do they flip flop at their convenience, but they also have the nerve to keep preaching their so-called “good values and morals” …

SHAME on those Christians faking that they are pro-life, anti-abortion, anti-same-sex marriage, and protesting a movie on Netflix, when they show no concerns for making this world a better place for all. They are simply distracting you from what really matters. SHAME on THOSE! Do not listen to them, they are FAKE; even if they are your pastors, elders, priests, etc. Our fight for a Better World for All has just started. We must carry it all the way to the next generations until we as a society make it true.

THREE PERSONS – SAME GENERATION, but DIFFERENT REALITY:

John Lewis Led and participated in over 1000 protests, arrested 45 times, and is considered a world icon for defending the Rightless ones!
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, notorious for fighting for equal rights and against gender discrimination even as an Associate Justice on the supreme court, also a world icon!
Donald J Trump, like his father, lives to promote his own/social white privilege. He is known as a racist, a cheater, a liar, and a selfish who never plays by the rules, even as President.

Two of them spent their entire lifetime fighting for others’ rights, the other spent his whole life living and protecting his white privilege even if that means disregarding others’ rights. YES, between John LEWIS, Ruth GINSBURG, and Donald TRUMP, the choice could not be more straightforward for those who are able to compare and contrast.

When Christians support Donald Trump, they are destroying John Lewis’ and Ruth Ginsburg’s legacies…When Christians support Mitch McConnell, they are telling the whole world that they do not care about others’ rights to choose, to love, to live free, to be fed, to have shelter, and to get medical treatment. By the way, those are fundamental rights, human rights… and real Christians do support them.

When Christians support Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and Ted Cruz, they tell you: It is okay to say one thing today and change it tomorrow if it fits your interests. On October 3rd, 2018, Washington Examiner reported a statement from Lindsey Graham saying: “I’ll tell you this if an opening comes in the last year of President Trump’s term, and the primary process has started, we’ll wait until the next election,” And he added: “You can use my words against me,” that was two years ago. However, right after the passing of Justice RBG, shamelessly, he found new reasons to change his mind, and he tweeted: “I will support President @realDonaldTrump in any effort to move forward regarding the recent vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg.” Honesty, Integrity, Truthfulness are of no VALUE to those Christians…Shame on THEM!

When you hear those Christians talk about the “BIBLE”, remember that same Bible was used to keep women without rights, slavery ongoing, discrimination against black people, and to justify the holocaust. Same as when you hear those republicans talk about the “Constitution”, remind them that Ruth Ginsburg based all her positions on that same CONSTITUTION. It is time for these people, Republicans, and fake Christians to stop using either the bible or the US constitution to maintain and promote their own personal/social privileges, while disregarding others’ rights…

A real CHRISTIAN should always be a defensor and protector for the fatherless, the weak, the poor, the unfortunate, the immigrant, the disabled, and minorities. No REAL Christian should be too capitalist or so individualist…SHAME on THOSE who are! It is time to call them out!

A REAL CHRISTIAN should join the fight to keep John LEWIS’ legacy alive, a man that has been arrested 45 times only for defending the Rightless…VS another man (Donald Trump) that has never experienced the loss of any right.

Throughout history, Christians (knowingly or unknowingly) have always been on the wrong side of human history, (Women’s rights, rights for people living with disabilities, slavery, black discrimination, the Holocaust, etc.).  Still today, they seem to not have learned the lessons. SHAME on THOSE who should have known better today.

The Universe and us: The BIG PICTURE

What is the universe? What does the universe and doesn’t do?

The universe, as we know it today, exists independent of when and where there is life or not. It follows its trend on its own. It has no conscientious movement and it doesn’t talk. The universe doesn’t know about its existence. It does not worry ceasing to exist.

On the other hand, no one has control over it. No one can destroy it nor modify its course. The universe is a self-regulated thing. It can destroy itself totally or partially. It can regenerate itself as well.

The Universe has produced life on earth and maybe on other planets within our galaxy or in other galaxies, it could be, although we have no evidence of such reality as of yet. But, according to science, that life on earth has evolved over time and there we are as a result, thinking, talking, arguing, and even fighting over just this fact. Meanwhile, the universe is not bothered by our misunderstanding, it simply goes on its way. We call ourselves Theist, Atheist, Agnostic, Anti-theist, Deist, etc.

According to its trend and based on evidence of what already happened in the past, it is possible, even probable, that it destroys us completely or partially unless we manage to escape. As a species, and maybe at a certain point in time, the same history will simply repeat itself and the ones who manage to survive might need to start all over again. All the technology we have today may be gone again…Just remember, without technology, all we have is blablabla, our senses.

The Universe doesn’t “know” we exist, or other beings exist wherever they may be (If that is the case). The universe doesn’t protect us from itself. The Universe doesn’t’ think about us the universe doesn’t think at all. If we disappear tomorrow, the universe will keep existing, in other words, the universe doesn’t depend on us at all. Now, my question is: What is so hard to understand about this fact?

A BIG universe and a tiny planet called “Earth” with no effect at all on it.

The universe, again as we know it today, or unlike the limited view our ancestors had about it, is immense. This immensity is nowhere close to what our ancestors perceived. Just understand we, humans beings, live on earth with all it has, an atmosphere within a solar system with other planets that is by itself huge. Now, according to NASA SPACE, so far astronomers have found 2500 solar systems, and given how many they have found close to us, and the fact that they are finding more every year, their estimation goes up to 100 billion in our Milky Way galaxy alone. Keep in mind that one thing is a star as a solar system meaning having planets like Earth, Mars, Jupiter orbiting them, and a star just by itself. In our Milky Way alone, the estimation is about 200 billion stars. It has been observed that one planet is orbiting two suns at the same time. The earth alone is very insignificant among the very little we have observed so far in the universe.

Another way to look at the universe is by clearly observing the distance between stars, solar systems, and galaxies with respect to the earth as well as establishing the time travel to each of them from the earth. We could also situate or envision when we could visit to make those trips reality.

Today, it will take us about 7 months to visit the closest most habitable planet to earth: Mars. Although Mars has been considered the best alternative option to escape earth in case of an emergency or even for leisure, the conditions over there will have to be accommodated. Significant use of technology is required. We know that.

What about the “Parker Solar Probe” and the closest star to our sun?

After 60 years since the “Solar Probe” concept was introduced, last year, August 12, 2018, NASA has launched the Parker Solar Probe; It will be a historic mission, flying into the sun’s atmosphere (or corona) for the first time. Coming closer to the sun than any previous spacecraft, Parker Solar Probe will employ a combination of in situ measurements and imaging to achieve the mission’s primary scientific goal: to understand how the sun’s corona is heated and how the solar wind is accelerated. Parker Solar Probe will revolutionize our knowledge of the origin and evolution of the solar wind. Its mission will last 6 yrs, 11 months. Quote from NASA, Parker Solar Probe link.

It is expected to reach about 430.000 mph or 700.000 Km/h. If this technology is used, which represents about 0.07 percent speed of light, it will take us 6300 years to reach Proxima Centauri, the closest star (4.25 light-years or 268770 Astronomical Units away) to our sun, discovered just in 2016. However, we must acknowledge the fact that 50 years ago, Appollo 11 reached 25.000 mph or 40.000 Km/h on its trip to the moon. In that case, it would have taken us 100.000 years to reach Proxima Centauri. Given that huge gap, and if we continue on this path proportionally, (this is me speculating here) by the year 2200, we may be talking about something reaching 25 to 50 percent of the speed of light. As a result, we will need between 25 to 10 years to reach the closest star to our sun. The time will come when will know much about this closest star. Now, if we want to escape our solar system, we know the closest star to us is called Proxima Centauri. As of 2017, according to the Journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, astronomers have observed, through computer simulations, habitable conditions similar to earth.

In the meantime…What do we do with life on earth?

So far, when we consider the universe as we know it just today, it should be obvious, easy to realize how insignificant we are within that universe, at the same time, how special can we be if we can understand that.

And then, only if we could focus our time and energy in digging into the universe, in finding how it works, and how to make the life we already have great, joyful and more perfect to all living today and tomorrow… Maybe something in those planets around the Alpha Centauri Star system could help solve a bunch of problems, here on earth.

Some want to give the universe more credit than it deserves, others want to believe the universe is controlled; the truth of the matter is the facts are the way they are and they don’t vary according to our aspiration, our thinking, our belief systems, and our senses. Technology has already proven wrong so many of our obsolete perceptions that were solely based on our 5 senses. It’s time to move past them.

Did you mention life without purpose?

While we touch that aspect, let’s include the “life without purpose” promotion: Have you ever heard this saying: “Just hold on until we die or until the end comes”. Holding on is another way to tell people “Just survive, this life is not for you, you messed it up or your ancestors did”. Also, have you heard: “We don’t belong to this earth”

A better way to understand the concept of life without purpose is when it is said: On the outset, a purpose for life was predetermined by some sort of designer to whom it belongs. We, humans, cannot find, on our own, a common purpose for life.

The necessity for the gods or a GOD within or outside the Universe

It seems normal to me that there was a necessity to imagine the existence of any type of supernatural being. Using parsimony, the best explanation for this need resides in the fact that at the first level of human conscientiousness, human life was surrounded by so many natural events for which they had no understanding. At that level, the most advanced of course, attempted any type of explanation such as Someone is watching over them, someone controls the winds, the rain, the sun, the moon, the heat; someone must have power over life, over death, and maybe if they please him or them, their lives could be better. He could spare them some suffering…He could resurrect them after dying… He could transform them…He could give or share with them some superpower as well.

Those who went this way found the challenges of life on earth unbearable and have been continuously searching for a superpower that could save and protect life. Thus, they have created all the gods we know of; but in reality, the challenges stay the same, we have the same problems, the same concerns and the same worries about life we had 10 thousand years ago, and we still have the same hope there was at least someone like “Batman” or “Superman” in the real life.

Our ancestors have even come up with a better place to live: “The Heavens”. Unfortunately, the heavens are still being promoted nowadays and many are dying with this hope. And I can understand where they were coming from. Most of those living in the first world countries may not be able to imagine how life was back then, and how life still is in third world countries. The universe was only killing our ancestors, they had nowhere to go, they could not escape hot, cold, hurricanes, flood, earthquakes, tsunamis, etc. And on top of that: hunger, illness, death, powerful animals killing/eating them, including human beings like them killing them, controlling them, abusing them, oh… What a sad past and still a sad present as well!

We know, based on how we describe these superheroes in our imagination, they will do good to us, they will be protecting us from natural disasters, from wicked people that do bad to us, from this World Order or this Statuquo such as the socio-economical structures, the political systems, that outdated human established laws, etc.

And because no real help will ever come from any of these gods, they simply gave up on life on earth: WAIT with courage, DIE with the conviction that you will go to HEAVENS where LIFE is different, better and perfect. The new purpose of this life is to accept the way it is, to believe nothing good can come out of it, and to expect for the next life to come and of course not on this earth the way it is, rather on a different and renewed earth. In conclusion, anytime reference is made about the gods or GOD, it is connected to the real-life and the real challenges we humans are going through only on earth. The best example we have about this belief comes from the monotheist Jewish religion, Judaism. First, everything from the beginning of their story with their God is connected to the suffering, sacrificing, the portion of earth where everything is great (Canaan). Bear with me please, and look at the big picture: Around 1000 BC, after they conquered the land (by killing the ones living there) when supposedly they were being led by their god, they too got divided. Then, they are invaded by others, they were enslaved as well and their story goes on like any other story in the world at that time. Some people were conquering others, that was a “normal thing“, others were losing everything they had. Later at the end of this text, I included an example of the chronological most relevant empires throughout the world known history.

A little more about the Jewish story and their “God” within context:

The Jewish people were not an exception. However, they connected their story to their god and even blamed themselves each time they were under attack by another nation. Their prophets realized that the only way out was a”savior“. Their “God” will send a “Savior” also called “Messiah” that will come and will deliver them, then they will live in peace. They were supposed to have built a ” Temple” and they had to practice a bunch of ceremonies, rituals; they had to remain faithful to that god if not, nothing will change for them, and worse, He will be punishing them.

The Jewish story, like any other story, is about power, control, domination, slavery, injustice, abuse, intolerance among themselves, and abroad. When I hear those taking some events related to their story out of their contexts, placing those events in a “god-people” dynamic relationship and promoting a sort of true-belief systems, I feel their ignorance, I feel their hypocrisy as well because many of them have complete knowledge about what I am talking right now, but worse, I feel the pain, the despair, the resignation, the abandon, the misery, the poverty of the majority who rely on those teachings as effectively “true reality” and as a result give up on the fight for a society more just, more compassionate, less violent, less abusive. Yes, they gave up on the fight for civility, real love among humans, and while being the majority, they are letting the very few get away with everything we have on earth. They are born blind, they grow up and die the same way. They do not develop nor do they attain High Critical and Scientific thinking skills.

Seriously, who did you say are benefiting from our achievements today?

Bizarrely today, we can protect life from many things it was not protected against hundreds of years or even decades ago to stay the closest possible in time. Guess what? This level of protection arises only for very few. technology has been monopolized by a little group unable to look at the big picture. While it works in their favor that the majority keeps believing in their myths, in the other life to come. The very few are using technology for their good; not caring about those unable to even overcome the challenges of the past. The very few are using their agents to keep the great majority in darkness, praying, fasting, and hoping while dying every day. Those agents of the World Order have been granted some privileges and they are still playing the game of the very few to go against everything that is obvious, evident. Their mission: Tell people not to understand what they can observe by themselves, what they are living, bottom line: NOT TO LOOK AT REALITY but rather to stay strong in their beliefs that this world is no good until the next one come and for sure that will happen only (after they die). Those agents use everything science and technology bring to them, and yet they do nothing to help the majority of the people benefit from science and technology as well. They use science and technology to build their megachurches, to create the videos, to go live stream; when they are sick, they go to the best hospitals, they drink pure water, their houses can resist any hurricane of category 5, their family is well protected and by the way, if the universe ever decides to hurt us again, let’s say, by an asteroid, they will manage to escape while the majority with their gods and their beliefs will simply die.

If we stay within context, how did we get there?

At some point, it was a quest for land… At another it was a quest for natural resources, both humans didn’t create. Those men had no clue about respecting the right to life of others: They will stop in, take over, kill, and control. Today, they created technology on the land they invaded and made theirs, with the natural resources they found on earth and don’t share it with the rest of humanity. They put a “price” on everything as if they owned anything and the great majority of human beings still face the same challenges our ancestors were facing unsuccessfully.

Some went farther to blame the so-called “Devil” or “Satan” also figures they have invented since they simply could not understand why life was so challenging, so difficult, or why they had to face “death”. Worse, they went after the first supposedly man ever existed “Adam” to make him responsible for the unfairness of life as punishment but from who? From the same SUPERPOWER that created all supposedly. It is still unfortunate that these myth stories are being presented even today as true stories, not only that, the “agents” of the very few as well as those without a clear understanding, will argue nail and tongue to prove their point but only using their perceptions(senses) as evidence. There is an explanation for that fact as well: “Cognitive dissonance”. If you believe something was true, then all the evidence proves otherwise, but you want to keep believing the same way or you find an imaginary explanation to keep believing the same thing…brothers and sisters, the fact is you are experiencing a state of cognitive dissonance. The Seventh Day Adventists today came from a similar experience: October 22, 1844.

Any idea about the imagination power of our brain?

The power to imagine has been the greatest power ever possessed by man. Through imagination, many things become reality today. However, that same power has also brought humanity apart. Many are those, as of today, unable to differentiate imagination as a wish for something to become real. For example: If not all of us, but many have at some point dreamt about flying in the air, moving in or through space. We simply keep wishing we had this power to make it real when we wake up…

Unfortunately, with everything going on earth (Wars between men, the tenuousness of lifestyle for so many, meaning the great majority; belief systems and distractions thus limiting high curiosity level for seeking and understanding knowledge, and with the very few trying all they can to maintain the Statuquo) those are the reasons why very little time, energy and resources are being dedicated in a collective way to differentiate reality from imagination/illusion/aspiration. In a more knowledgeable society, a society where “reasoning” is no longer an aspiration but a reality, that should be “THE GOAL“.

BUT when is the great majority going to wake up?

We have identified many reasons:

1) Everything, as described above, is not yet clear in the brain of the majority of human beings and the main cause is, based on the oldest writings ever found from the Sumerians, as well as other predominant other religious views of the world (Muslims, Indhus, Buddhists, etc), our ancestors were unable to reach the highest level of scientific understanding. Most of them stayed at the first level. They were able to systematically observe some natural events, quantifying, and classifying them. However, they failed when based on that level of scientific understanding which is “Description“, they attempted to establish some causal explanations.

The same thing happened with others that reached the second level of scientific understanding which was ” Prediction“. At that level, they were able to identify some Correlation, Covariation between events in the sense that two events occur regularly at the same time, however, it was not wise to assume one causes the other. Again, our ancestors failed to grasp this difference and many causal explanations were emitted based only on that second level of scientific understanding.

Only at the third and Highest Level of Scientific Understanding, the causal explanation is sustained. At that level, it is not merely a systematic observation or an assumption based on correlation, but rather a control level through evidence of cause-effect relationship by experimentation, repetition, and generalization.

Again, we didn’t know that much back then and our leaders in the past were being guided by their perception (1st and 2nd level of scientific understanding) of the universe. That limitation itself has generalized and promoted over thousands of years. The majority of people are still reluctant to embrace evidence-based knowledge (the 3rd level). The imposed belief systems are still predominant. When facing the evidence, their escape is to create an alternative reality, such as “we don’t need the highest level of scientific understanding to know what is true or real”. Of course, they may be right, whenever it is evident, the truth may come just from a simple observation. But if it is not so obvious and/or convincing, the 3rd level is what is needed to establish causal explanations.  Whether you know it or not, you always use science to explain anything. Science has discovered that many explanations based only on perceptions were wrong and to avoid misleading, or making more mistakes, it is wiser to wait until the third level of scientific understanding is reached to relate to a causal relationship, objective truth. Today, we talk about evidence-based applied science through which objective truth emerges, and then that truth is true anywhere at any time. It is true and works for all, without reverence, dogma to follow, ritual, worship, praise, affiliation, etc. I am telling you, there have never been other ways to know what is true and real, to understand our world, our universe and how it works, to organize and generalize knowledge besides scientific understanding. It was rather a difference in the scientific level.

Spirituality?

The irony here is the fact that the ones who want to keep people misinformed, separate “spirituality” from the real world. In other words, because I am using a scientific methodology to understand the natural world, I am not spiritual, I can’t feel, I can’t connect with the universe, I can’t be inspired… Look at me, (I know you can’t) but as you are reading all these things now, can you infer that I care for humanity? Do you see love,  compassion behind my writings? So, open your eyes, and see who is lying to you, who is confusing you, who is keeping you the way you are…Ask yourself why do they want you to believe so much? Why do they want you to fight or even die over your beliefs? Why do they want you not to connect with others who question their belief systems imposed onto you?

2) Keeping people uninformed, misinformed has been a well designed and implemented strategy that came from far behind. Those with a certain level of information have always used this privilege to manipulate and control the mass. One way to keep people misinformed or uninformed is to discourage them to search or reach for evidence-based information or to twist, mix some evidence-based with other myths, thus creating a false equivalence. Many times you will hear them say: “we will never full the truth”, “it’s all according to someone’s opinion…” Another way is to keep them always struggling to “survive” so they don’t have time to question or search…Also keep them distracted, entertained. It is so fascinating to observe how many people shut down the door of “curiosity” within themselves and say: “I rather not know much“.

What about the BIG PICTURE?

3) This structure of human society has benefited the most powerful and they have not been able to look at the big picture as of yet. This is true from all the empires that have existed throughout world history that we know of, from the Sumerian (2300 BC) to USA (Present), included the Assyrian, the Babylonian, the Egyptian, the Jewish, the Persian, the Greeks, the roman(lasting about 2000 years), Germany, the Spanish, the french, the japan, the soviet union, etc.

4) As stated before, the universe can “destroy” us, can destroy itself at any time. This fact alone converts the universe in a violent thing at a time, with no mercy for anything or anyone. Why do we have to be violent?  Violent towards ourselves, towards each other, towards the earth where we are granted the privilege to live? And the answer remains the same:  We are still unable to look at the BIG PICTURE. We are at the stage where we don’t have the power to understand the universe, how it works, and how we can make life great, joyful, and more perfect to all living today and tomorrow. As I am writing this post, I am also thinking about you reading it now. I would love for you to help me spread this news to the world, but first, get it to yourself. Look, Individually, our life doesn’t go beyond 100 years and we look at the universe, the way we know it today (2019), this represents absolutely NOTHING. However, if we look at this fact as a species, as a whole, (without discrimination) we may behave differently. We may become more tolerant, more compassionate, less selfish (or not selfish at all). We may not feel okay when other beings like us live their whole life struggling. We may not make anyone else’s life miserable, less/non-valuable. ANYONE granted the privilege to be alive ANYWHERE on earth, should be taken care of as a precious gift. The dinosaurs didn’t choose to be destroyed, many animals never chose to be extinct. However, we have much power today to avoid certain extinction, we have much power today to save humanity, and yet so many are still perishing under our eyes. Dogs are great animals, we need them. Horses too, as well as so many others. We need to take care of them. But why the life of a dog should have more value than the life of a human? Why, today, the life of certain human beings have no value at all? Why doesn’t that bother the very few that millions are dying every day simply because they don’t have access to food, to water, to shelter or to medicine? The reason is simple: They are not capable of looking at the UNIVERSE and see the BIG PICTURE. But what about you, are you? Let me know. Leave a comment.

Science versus Religion in the 21st century

Heading to the end of the first quarter of the 21st century, it is fascinating to note how easy it is for a religious person to talk about his faith saying that everyone should have faith in a certain God. For having been part of their belief system since I was born, I understand the level of conviction shown when they bring their belief to others and try to convince them that they know the truth about the past, the present, and the future. Most of them, even with a doctoral degree will just tell you that you should believe their way, while obviously,  we have, on the other hand, science that is leading humanity to the understanding of the real world we are all living in and showing us how the universe works.

Our purpose throughout this topic is to set up the tone about all past and present apprehensions between Science and Religion.

Now, let’s ask ourselves: Can science exist without religion in the 21st century?

Albert Einstein said in the 20th century: “Science without religion is lame, Religion without science is blind.”  Many things we know today, Einstein didn’t when he wrote that statement, and if apparently, it made sense back then, today it seems inaccurate. Religion could be seen as what it was: something to hold on since we had no clue about ourselves, life, our solar system, our galaxy, the universe. But Religion has mainly misled humanity while imposing its belief systems, without compelling evidence, called “Faith” on humanity. Our world for the last 5 thousand years of known history is full of so many disappointments, thanks to religion.

One way religion was limiting science development is by refraining people from asking questions about things,  finding out and fixing things. Religion was always saying that the human race has no merit and is incapable of solving any of life multiple challenges and other men issues. Only God can do, Only God knows, etc.
Strangely, but surely, science starts to show otherwise with all the contributions to human life during the 20th century, and now all of the sudden religion is afraid, religion is losing control over the mass. The trend is declining and it is expected to keep doing so during this century. According to Lawrence Klauss, religion is outdated in the 21st century.

Again, I can understand Einstein’s mind when he said science without religion is lame, but with the facts we have today, I join Lawrence and affirm that Science no longer needs religion to exist in the 21st century.

With the scientific revolution which started about 400 hundred years ago, today, we can assure that this road is the way for a more joyful, perfect, and a great life.

However, can religion exist without science? The answer is NO. Religion depends on 100 % on science to do business. Let me explain myself:
Ask any religious person to use their faith to communicate with people wherever they are, not to use the internet to search for things, not to get on a car, or airplane to go anywhere but their faith. Can a religious person not use a cell phone and use his faith instead? Ask a religious person in the modern world to show you something in this world that was done by faith such as a bridge, an expressway, a building, or anything that could help human body support temperature changes high/low; ask any religious and convinced Christian not to go to the hospital, not to take any medicine if they are sick but instead to just pray, fast and worship, of course, their answer will be: Hell No!

A real scientist knows there is no need to fight upon beliefs, but a religious one would rather kill himself to prove his conviction about faith in some supernatural being in control of everything.

Personal experiences: Religious people’s last card.

A real scientist can question even his greatest accomplishment, reconsider it in full, but a believer is not allowed to question his beliefs: Go tell a religious person that maybe his belief is a lie, maybe it was a prefabricated, manipulated and well-oriented system of control, Guess what? He will feel deeply offended, personally attacked, or he will bring on his personal experiences (When I had no clue, that could be one of my reactions as well.) By the way, talking about personal experiences, which I have so many, is the last card used by believers when they are cornered with the historical facts that demolish the sustainability of their beliefs; believers also prove how much they have been fooled when they use the card of personal experiences as reference for their beliefs. It’s like they are the only ones on earth with those types of experiences: The only ones who get out of a car accident safe, the only ones get a job, or who get cured of a disease, who get to buy a house, who get to have a kid, etc. All of us, from the cave till today, and because of the dynamic of life may go through special events. Bottom line: “the so-called personal experiences are not proof of anything; they are not sources for objective truth, and finally they don’t show anything special/uncommon to any religious or non-religious group.  (this is not the focus of this topic, it is only one of the effects on convinced/blind religious believers)

Now, let’s formally ask the question: What if all religious people come to discover and understand that all types of religious beliefs were simply a man-made product as a way to attempt explaining, or interpreting the reality of their existence with all the challenges they had to face while ignoring where they came from, where they are going as well as their purpose of living and how to deal with all that they were going through?

Alternative Reality:

One mission of Religion is to take people to the alternative reality: When your brain is full of thoughts about an alternative reality, you naturally give up on the real world you are living in. Religion makes its point, based only on “Alternative Reality“; whereas Science just shows the true reality, the one everyone goes through since conception through death, generations after generations. Science explains the real world every day more accurately, discovers the natural laws, and looks for solutions to the natural problems affecting life overall. Whenever science says something is true, it refers to objective truth, the truth that is true everywhere, whenever, and to everyone. Science uses Data to support its findings. Science changes the unwanted, undesired reality into a better one, another real one, but never promotes an alternative one.

Is there any difference between Religion and Science in the 21st Century? The answer is “no”. Science and Religion are becoming more and more incompatible, there is almost no objective common ground between the two, therefore there is no difference either. To make it clearer, when facing uncertainty, the scientist will keep looking for a way out whereas the religious will give up on looking but will place his hope on a supposedly supreme being that could use his superpower and his will to help human beings. In reality, this supreme being has never used that power to resolve any uncertainty for humanity, that we know of.

Just know that “Alternative reality” is no reality at all. (We all know that, but the fact of the matter is the great majority is given paradise as hope while going through hell in the real world.

Let me be fair and take some bias out of my lecture. Science used to be similar to religion until the beginning of the 20th century when the gap between the two started to grow significantly and faster. Science and religion had the same common ground: speculate about the origin and nature of life. When religion was claiming God created it all, another group of humans was saying God doesn’t exist or they don’t believe in a specific god. In the frontier, science wanted to prove that religion was wrong and religion wanted to prove that science was not the best way either because most scientific hypotheses were failing. Both were using either of their “5 common senses” thus everyone was right in their opinion, and the most powerful ones forced humanity to take the religious road about 2500 years ago. Let’s just remember Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. Socrates got executed for not believing in the greek gods and promoting the road for seeking the truth, the objective truth.

However, when scientists started going beyond their senses, using tools that allow them to reach objective and emergent truth, then religion started to feel lonely. Religion in the 21st century uses the same obsolete references from men who didn’t know the earth orbited the sun, while science brings every day new instruments enabling us a more objective understanding not only of ourselves, our species, our earth, but also, our solar system, our galaxy the Milky Way, with its stars, its black holes… as well as the billions of galaxies beyond ours. We know today about billions of galaxies, we know about a very big universe that is expanding more and more.

When at some point, the debate between religion and science was about whether or not there is a supreme omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent God who as a result of his existence created everything and who needs to be worshiped a certain way, who has tons of dogmas for humans to fight over their entire life; this debate, too, is obsolete and meaningless in the 21st century. Science doesn’t care if any God exists, much less if He created the universe or has some control over it, at the end of the day, Lawrence Klauss said: “God is irrelevant to science, He doesn’t interfere with science.” Scientists care about understanding how the universe works and finding ways to make life greater, more joyful, and more perfect for all.

The Real World and its challenges:

Religion cannot prove their theory in the real world, except in the alternative one. Science has chosen to focus its attention on the real world. In the real world, there is no evidence of a Supreme being that ever existed; in the real world, there is no evidence that”prayer works“; in the real world we have laws, nature, and living beings. In the real world, the better and more in-depth we understand how everything works, the closer we are to finding solutions to all our problems.

Science will love for religion to give as many results in the real world or to turn the alternative world into the real one. If religion depends on science to grow, that means religion is counting on science and technology to expand and to convince about its alternative world. In other words, religion cannot exist without science and science is showing the irrelevance of religion along with all its beliefs in the real world.

When science finds a solution, it works for everyone…while every single claim of religion is based on a personal relationship with someone that needs some reverence/worship format. That claim about this someone brings fruits with the same probability anyone wins the lottery.

Science never asks anyone to believe in its discoveries for them to work, but religion asks everyone to believe first and to never question even after. If this is done, you get the same answers over and over. Nevertheless, the form of belief religion is asking for has nothing to do with the real world, and yes, it uses everything from the real world: it uses the real problems men face daily but gives no real solutions to any of them, except resignations in this world, hopes in the future world, etc.

We know today, there is no magical, supernatural solution to any of the real problems we have been facing throughout life history.

We know today that the only way to find durable, effective, and applicable solutions is through a deep understanding of how the universe and life work, which will lead us to needed discoveries and to deviate the trend against the abundance of a more perfect, joyful, and greater life.

We know today that life is a result of many many circumstances outside of men’s control and we abide by this fact. What we also know is that life has been a challenge for men and animals since the beginning. As a natural gift, we know today that life can disappear out of the blue at any time. We see and understanding this fact in the real world and science is committed to keeping the path of deep understanding. Maybe this is where the “Alternative World” religion talks about comes from. Natural disasters, natural deaths, and human instinct of surviving have caused the sudden disappearance of many generations. Besides natural disasters and natural deaths, the human instinct of self-preservation like animals has pushed him to destroy, abuse, or neglect the most vulnerable, the naive, and the lesser developed ones.

Besides, we know that at all levels, the challenge has been to preserve this gift. At some point, religion looks right when proclaiming no good ending for our world with the evidence we have from data, however, religion is wrong because this posture has been established based on human ignorance on how the real world works.

Human beings are called to overcome the challenges of a difficult life, to turn them into opportunities for finding the basis of a more joyful, perfect, and a great life. Human beings will get to that point if we are given this opportunity through science and technology.

We know that natural disasters have destroyed generations of animals as well as humans. We understand how it happened. We don’t need to invent a supernatural being with control over these events and as a result of fear, we don’t need to create a form of worshiping for anyone to save us.

We know that no one has ever helped us, there is absolutely no evidence of any supernatural being freeing us from death, illness, natural disaster, and much less from selfish powerful animals and human beings. We need to acknowledge that some powerful animals and human beings but also mortal like anyone else, have done their best to help the less fortunate, the naive, the defenseless. Some people did sacrifice their own lives for that purpose. We need more people today to come together and stand against injustice, lies, poverty…

Life, a very singular and very rare gift?

We know there is no LIFE anywhere else in our solar system, and most likely there isn’t anywhere in our galaxy, we are not sure about other galaxies and we have no ways to find out as of yet.

If life is a gift, we need not use it for seeking the one who supposedly gave it to us to worship him, rather for making the best use of it. We need to value life for every single living thing or living being, we need to understand it, to protect it and overall to preserve it from vanishing (again, if that was the case).

As of today, the most powerful men on earth don’t get it, they don’t understand that freeing humanity from religion is proportionally the same as helping us better understand the essence of life, how it works. Look, in that situation more human beings will dedicate themselves to that purpose. We need engineers like never before, we need physicians like never before, we experts in computation like never before, we need biologists, chemists, physicists, mathematicians like never before, we need a multiple of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Galileo, Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek, Louis Pasteur, Thomas Edison, Carl Linnaeus, Nicolaus Copernicus, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Watson and Crick, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Dawkins…

All the religions combined, but mainly Christianity, have brainwashed human beings since birth about many gods as well as inaccurate explanations about life and its meaning. Consequently, many of the great majority of human beings have either wasted the most of their lives or are doing so right now and they have been unable to seek all their potential.  The real-world needs more scientists, but no more pastors, priests; The real world needs more leaders in the scientific world, but no more followers of a specific religion. The bottom line: we need more People with high critical and scientific thinking skills. If religion considers itself a social entertainment, so be it, because the world also needs entertainment. But, stop brainwash the new generations… and let them discover what all generations before them were unable to achieve, and maybe someday, life can become joyful, perfect, and great for everyone single living thing!!!

Who really has Faith in God?

When someone tells you about his faith in God based on his personal experiences, simply ask him the following question:

How do you really know you have faith in God?

You will be surprised to discover that not only can that person not tell you how he knows he has faith, but worse, that that person has no faith at all.

First and foremost, what is faith?
According to the dictionary: “Complete trust or confidence in something or someone”; in a religious sense: “strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.”

Now, if we look up in the Christian Bible:
According to Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
In the same passage, there are many references of what faith really is about; for example: ” By faith the children of Israel passed the Red Sea as by dry land… By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.”
Furthermore, in James 2:26, explicitly, it is said: ” Faith without works is dead.”

Saying you have faith in God is actually meaningless, and the only way you can say you have faith is by acting first and then concluding: “By faith, I did this, by faith, I did that”, while no other logical explanation stands, as mentioned above.

The problem anyone claiming faith in God has, is that the only references of what faith really is, are those mentioned in Hebrew 11.
In other words, what do the people saying they have faith in God today do by faith? “Nothing” No one does anything by faith; please note here that I am being absolute in reference to what Faith is, not to what it is not, such as a “try” to see if something works. When we know the laws and technology, having faith should disregard the logical explanations of events and make them happen, for example let’s say: “By faith, I am going to have my car driven without combustible; by faith, I am going to make a phone call when my cell phone has no charge, or is dead; by faith, we are going to build roads, bridges, hospitals, schools, etc. By faith, we are going to eliminate cancer; by faith we are going to have our countries well developed; by faith, no one is going to die from malnutrition, from cancer, from not having access to health care where it is lacking (i.e., Haiti…)”

If someone tells you he has faith in God, just ask him what has he done by faith that should never be obtained otherwise. The truth of the matter is, the only way to say that one has faith is by showing what has been done by faith; if someone is not living a life based on faith, then tells you he has faith, you know he is either lying or he doesn’t know, or he never learned, what having faith means.

By the way, sometimes, we hear people referring to unique coincident scenarios as a proof of faith, such as: “I had nothing to eat, I prayed, and someone brought me food” or “My car broke in the middle of nowhere at night, and all of the sudden someone came to my rescue because I prayed.” And why not: “I had a terminal illness, my doctor said I had 6 months to live, I prayed, and 6 years later, I am still alive”; I was abandoned by my family, my friends, and I called upon God by faith, then He rescued me and now I can tell you my story”; “My family is not broken because of my Faith in God, I have a job because of Faith”, etc…  

I believe if we could live this life abundantly by faith, that would be great, and I would not only take advantage of it, but also make sure the whole world, meaning those having nothing on this earth, does the same as well. But the evidence we have for the known period of human history as of today, doesn’t align itself with that imaginary probability.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THE STORY OF ADAM & EVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN

Well, well, well…

Get ready to discover the true meaning of the world known story of Adam & Eve in the garden of Eden. One thing for sure, we don’t know if we will ever be able to verify whether or not this story is true. However, there is something that is really true about it. And it is about to be discovered:

  • Adam & Eve ate the fruit and their eyes were open. In other words, they were living in paradise, everything was perfect, but they weren’t able to see. How perfect were things then, if they weren’t able to see or to differentiate between good and bad? This part doesn’t add up, does it?

The fact of the matter is that only after eating the “FRUIT” their eyes got open, and they were able to distinguish between good and bad, they even saw how “naked” they were. And as a result, they were kicked out of the garden.

Wow! If that was true back then, it has to be true today, and in fact, it is true:

  • Look, if your eyes are open, surely you can see that you are poor, you can see that you have no access to available treatment because you simply can’t afford it, neither have you access to good education, much less to the technological resources only few human beings are using. If your eyes are open, you should be able to see that you are “naked” and you should be able to know the reason why only few people have everything when more than 60% have absolutely nothing. You should be able to know why this category of people born in poverty, live and die the same way; you should also be able to know the reason why this situation is far from changing its course. When your eyes are open, you can understand the reason why these people, you included maybe, are still in the garden of Eden and can’t figure out for themselves the reason why. When your eyes are open, you will understand the reason why they will never get out of the garden unless someone pushes them to do what Adam & Eve and the other few people, who have everything, did: EAT the FRUIT of Knowledge.

If you are poor and religious, it is because you are still in the garden, “blind”. If you can’t have a better life on this earth and yet you are ready to sacrifice your life for your beliefs, it is because your eyes aren’t open, you are still in the garden of Eden, and my prediction is that you will die in the garden, your kids will die in the garden too, like you were born in the garden and never get a chance to eat the FRUIT of knowledge. You need to do what Adam & Eve and the others did: Just eat the FRUIT, and surely when your eyes are open, you will be kicked out of the garden.

For the last 7 thousand years or so, we have been told the history of only those who got their eyes open. They have been able to manage to survive, to get wealth and to accommodate themselves while taking advantage over those who stay in the garden, oppressing them as they are “blind” to secure their well being. The ones who got their eyes open, not only did they live their real story, but they have been the ones who control what and how to tell you their story. In addition, they are the ones who also interpret their story for you, they are the ones explaining you your own story. Remember, they are out of the garden because their eyes got open and yet they do whatever it takes to keep you in the garden, so that you never understand the essence of your own life and surrounding.

Fortunately, they are not the only ones with their eyes open; they may still control your brain, they may have a lot of power, they may still keep you believing their god’s stories, their social economical structures and they will do so until one last day: Until our eyes got open collectively and we decide to be part of their stories but this time actively. Yes, there is a group of us, who got the chance to eat the FRUIT of Knowledge and got our eyes open. We refuse to adjust or accommodate to this “WORLD ORDER” when more than 5 billions of our brothers and sisters still live in the garden. This group of us, around the world, we are committed to doing whatever it takes to have you eat that FRUIT and got your eyes open so that you can get out of the garden in order to make sure at least your grand children don’t die in poverty.

We don’t have their power, their wealth and their influence on your brain; so it is not really simple since you have lived in the garden generations after generations. Your blindness, your lost of sight has significantly worsen. They gave you the religions along with the many gods they themselves created in whom they no longer even believe, keeping you in the garden, blind, while out there they are benefiting from the knowledge they have found as they keep digging to know even more.

Now, they are out of control, they are panicked because they are losing control of your brain…Many of us who got to eat the FRUIT and make it out of the garden, are exposing their lies. Although they will continue to do whatever it takes to keep controlling your brain with their religions, in our side, we are doing whatever it takes as well to just show you the FRUIT of Knowledge so that you can eat it too. Instead of rejecting us, instead of not paying attention to us, look around yourselves and ask these questions: Who really cares about you? Why since you were born, you are suffering? why can’t you have a decent life? What have you done wrong? Why do few people have everything while you and the great majority live in poverty? Where does this “world order” come from? By who and how did it start?

EAT the FRUIT, your eyes will open and you will see why. You will see and understand how they created good and evil…as many other characters, good and evil were created by those men who got out of the garden and since then, many more gods (Anu, Osiris, Set, Jehovah, Eloim, Satan, Baal,  Zeus, Jesus etc.), and many characters have been created such as: Superman, Black Panther, Superwoman, Green Lantern, Batman, The Flash, Volverine etc.). They all have one thing in common: They are always more powerful than humans while they are described in human terms. Just think about it for a moment:

In all their stories, the good ones are always fighting against the evil ones, and want to help, to protect the vulnerable, they want justice. The evil ones always got a lot of power as well but to oppress, to take advantage of the vulnerable, and they will always control until one day…one last day when the good ones triumph. But the good always have to work hard… Let’s work hard then!

The Jesus the Christian Church Doesn’t Talk About

Jonathan Merrit on his blog “Faith and Culture” wrote an article titled:  “Setting the records straight on Jesus, the Friend of Sinners”. Lots of opinion, studies including from columnists, Bloggers have been done on the matter.

Although some of my Christian friends have already categorized me as confused, I want to, once again, challenge what Christians have been promoting about Jesus, and how they have avoided showing the world who Jesus really was.

If a member of the Christian church questions the way things are being held in the said church or a passage from the called Bible, this person will most likely be isolated because the status quo of any church will never acknowledge anyone who wants to highlight its wrong side. Doesn’t this characteristic seem familiar with what happened with the status quo of the Jewish leaders back in Jesus’s time?

The purpose of this lecture is to emphasize the reason why Jesus, the one the Christian church doesn’t talk about, is actually the one that really matters.

Let’s analyze.

Who was Jesus? Why was he killed?

Let’s understand that many things that we are told about Jesus from the new testament, especially the 4 gospels, have the purpose of justifying the idea they wanted you to believe about Jesus. In other words, those things may have been exaggerated or fabricated. I am going to put them into context and try to seize the essence of the information they provided, taking into consideration other historical documents about what happened in Israel, 2000 years ago.

because I may refer to these writings doesn’t mean I am promoting everything they reported; among those things, we have stories such as his birth, his resurrection, etc.

John the Baptist was leading a movement, and Jesus took over when John was killed. Actually, that is what eventually occurred without interpretation. Jesus could be easily identified as a revolutionary man, who thought that Israel was suffering because the Jewish leaders weren’t complying with God’s will. They were hypocritical, judgmental, selfish, pretentious, and overall false people preaching one thing but doing the complete opposite. He was a dreamer of a better world and he wanted to show that it was possible if men could simply love each other, instead of preaching or pretending that religious beliefs could turn this world into a better place. Jesus, without denying his Jewish identity, stood up against the Jewish establishment as well as the Roman empire that was not working in favor of humanity, in favor of the poor, the women, the oppressed, etc.

If Jesus didn’t promote a religious way for this world to be a better place, why then, do Christians do so in his name?

Don’t you think that if Jesus was alive today, he would stand against the Christian churches, preaching one thing but doing the complete opposite? Why with so many Christians, there is no real love between men? Christians among themselves don’t even love each other.

The best part of Christianity is that Christian leaders and followers are most likely ready to die for saying that they believe in Jesus or for talking about Jesus than to simply be like Jesus.

It has been proven that whoever records occurring events they have been part of, are unable to take away their own way of thinking from their writings- meaning that they cannot distinguish the difference between their own thoughts, and their recounts of that gathering. We are going to dig deep into the thinking of those who wrote about Jesus and convey that somehow their writings are connected to their Jewish perception of reality.

First and foremost, supposedly, they were all Jews. Jews do have a traditional view of people: righteous vs. wicked, where the first are the ones observing/following God’s law, and the second are the ones violating it, also called sinners.

That is exactly the reason why we found many people called “sinners”  throughout those writings; and while Jesus basically associated himself with “sinners” according to their view, they emphasize their writings on the sinners’ need to repent in order to receive grace through Jesus, whether to simply show that Jesus made no such distinction. Any bible scholar will have difficulty in proving otherwise.

Again, the actual/historical Jesus made no such distinction, instead, he was fighting against this type of distinction: Jesus’s main message was that all men are equal regardless of their status, beliefs, origin, race, gender, etc. However, those writers were not able to reproduce the full Jesus because they kept believing in such distinction; keep in mind, that when the Gospels state: “Jesus associated himself with the wicked, the sinners,” that was their own understanding. In fact, Jesus himself considered these people just as valuable as anyone else.

All the new testament writers were forced to report some of Jesus’s acts that are against their beliefs, but in the end, they twisted their conclusion to their original Jewish belief. By calling Jesus the “friends of sinners” the writers of the new testament found a way to twist Jesus’ work. But it is clear when we dig into the events, any simple observer would conclude that is not how Jesus saw these people they called sinners.  The best way to understand my point is to look at Jesus’ actions as a human who simply cares for his brothers, not with the eyes of a Jew. We all know that the immediate disciples of Jesus after His death didn’t have the same perception of Him which was manifested through their writings. This is clear evidence of why there are multiple interpretations of the same writings that give us so many doctrinal views. However, the predominant view is that God loves us all, but we are all sinners and we need to repent in order to benefit from God’s grace through Jesus. The only fact here is that No one, not the disciples, nor the Vatican or the other denominations did or are doing what Jesus did. Am I wrong, bible scholars?

If any Christian leader talks about the woman caught in adultery, he/she would end up quoting Jesus saying to her: “Go and sin no more”; actually there is no proof that Jesus actually said that since all of them left, including those writing the event. How did they get what Jesus told this woman? Oh please, don’t come with the inspiration part. That was something that actually took place at a certain place and time with people witnessing and among them those who wrote the story. The only person that could report the story to the end is either Jesus or the woman. As we know, Jesus didn’t write, and we don’t know if this woman wrote the story or not, exactly because the early church leaders wouldn’t promote any female writing as normal.

If you ask the Christian church leaders what would Jesus do with gays, they will soon refer to some writings of Paul or others to show you that it is unacceptable, but if we go back and look at the Historical Jesus, we would clearly see a Jesus that embraces them like his brothers, eat with them and show them, love. He will not condemn them nor ask them to be different so that they may receive his grace. What matters to Jesus is the fact that we love each other with no set pre-concepts as it has been the case with the Jewish establishment.

Of course, the Jewish establishment would never accept someone of Jesus’ type who also pretends to be the way, the life, and the true saying that no one gets to the Father but through Him…Somehow, Jesus placed himself in a bad situation, according to the writers.

Nevertheless, let’s not focus on whether or not Jesus is the Messiah, in fact, according to a deep and accurate presentation of The Real Messiah part 1 and 2  by Dr. Michael Brown ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBSRiwy4T7k), the Messiah as it is announced to the Jews cannot be Jesus.  Anyway, Judaism doesn’t promote Jesus at all. The Muslims don’t believe he is the Messiah either, nor do they believe he was resurrected. The only people who promote Jesus are the Christians but their focus is anything except on what Jesus really stood for. For example, they introduced the concept of eternal life only through Jesus when he comes back, the forgiveness of sin only through his blood.

I deeply believe if the focus was on what Jesus stood for and how to keep it up, the Christians who have decided to promote Jesus would have done a better job in this world, and the world would have been a better place.

Now let’s look at the reason why Jesus was killed.

Jesus’ revolutionary movement against the Jewish establishment forced them to go after Him. His rhetorical responses to each of their questions when they wanted to use scriptures and laws ashamed them as well. Obviously, Jesus was a martyr. In addition, there are other facts that without any doubt give Jesus the number one in this world: His birth divided the two historical periods of time, lots of miracles have taken place in his name. Anyone who truly puts his faith in Him and claims His name may see answers, deliverance, healing, etc. Anyway, this is not surprising since miracles take place in the name of many other historical figures. People who face persecution from other wicked spirits may find lots of blessings through Jesus. I personally have great references.

But again, if individually, few people can benefit from the spiritual claims of Jesus’ power, it is also true that the majority don’t.

The Christians who have had and continue to have the desire of being like Jesus, the majority of them, wouldn’t even try to become the friends of sinners, at the same time they are claiming to be followers of Jesus, I simply don’t get it.

If  Jesus was killed because of his vision for humanity by religion, why did they create another religion on his name? The reason is simple, since the beginning, the same disciples didn’t want to understand Jesus’ vision, they would have to do what he was doing which they never wanted. So it was easier to use the name of Jesus to establish a new religion than to simply do what Jesus was doing such as becoming “friends of sinners”.

The fact that they called Jesus “a friend of sinners” is a sign that they don’t want to be like Him. They were the ones looking at it that way, Jesus was being normal with human beings as his equal, but in their eyes, there was a distinction, those human beings were sinners, not equal with them, not entitled to the same privileges. Now, after Jesus died, they are the ones representing Him, they are free to interpret Jesus’ actions their ways. They don’t want to be friends of sinners, they want the sinners to repent, to accept Jesus, etc…Keep in mind, bible scholars, throughout Jesus’reported actions, He was associating himself with sinners, (That is how the Jews usually call those who supposedly don’t behave as they should, according to the law of Moses) not asking sinners to repent nor to accept him. Anyone claiming to follow Jesus has no other choice than to do what Jesus was doing.

So Jesus was killed because He was a sinner according to the law of Moses, and one of the sins he committed was Blasphemy. He was claiming He was God or the Son of God, that is blasphemy and the sentence for this sin was death. The death of Jesus was legal,  according to the law of Moses. Christians don’t want to say that because they built their religion on the death of Jesus as a sacrifice. What matters to Christians is the way they interpret the death of Jesus, not the work of Jesus, simply because they don’t want to be like Jesus, they don’t want to be “friends of sinners.” The message of Christians is that Sinners have to repent, but that has nothing to do with actually what Jesus was doing and what He stood for.

In other words, if Jesus was alive TODAY, surely he would stand against Christianity, the same way he stood against Judaism, he would call Christians leaders ” hypocrite” the same way he called the Jews leaders, preaching one thing but doing the exact opposite.

Surely, the Christian leaders would react the same way the Jews leaders reacted against Jesus, maybe the Christian leaders won’t kill Him the same way because there is no such law, but they would call him “false prophet” ‘Antichrist”.

For Example, Jesus would never wait for Obama to be president to facilitate equal sex marriage right. Jesus didn’t wait for the feminist liberation movement to have women with the same right as men, Jesus didn’t wait for the UN to declare that slavery was a crime against humanity to show that the real master should rather serve than wait to be served. Jesus made it clear that the only reason why we have poor people is because of rich people that somehow had stolen from others.  The Christian church leaders stood against all these examples unless they were forced to accept some of them.

The Jesus they don’t talk about is the Jesus we should call ” friend of humans” based on everything he did and stood against. Jesus is the friend of anyone whom the right has been violated one way or another. Can we say the same for Christians? What role are Christians playing in the suffering, the misery of the people besides giving them “hope” when they are not the ones violating those rights?

As I said earlier, Jesus until his last breath was a Jew, although he stood up against Jewish oligarchy. I have been a Christian all my life, and I do identify myself as a disciple of the real Jesus, the one Christians don’t want to talk about. Although like Jesus as well as all other martyrs before or after him, I am not able to change this world, I am still promoting that it can be a better place if collectively we embrace this road. If Christian leaders want to do a better job, they simply have two things to do:

a) Change the focus when it comes to talking about Jesus. It really doesn’t matter to talk about his birth, his resurrection, his second coming, at the end of the day, he was killed for a reason. Also, the entire world would never unite around those beliefs. The focus on who he really was based only on his retold actions taken without any oriented interpretation, and what he stood against are the unique things that matter and can bring unity around the world.

b) If Christian leaders want to promote Jesus’s values, first they have to show the example by selling everything they have and distribute to the poor and then encourage everyone else to do the same. When we look at the assets of the Vatican along with other Christian denominations, it is obvious that they don’t want to be like Jesus. They need first to convert all these assets into help for the poor; they need to tell the richest people in this world that what they have doesn’t belong to them, no matter how they have gained them. They need to be a defensor and a protector for the oppressed, the abused, the orphans, the disabled, the weak, the unfortunate, the rejected, etc. They need to show respect to anyone’s right to be and then promote the same respect and tolerance.

If another world is to come, let’s make this one a better world first. The best life one can have is the one he/she has, it cannot be the one that he/she will have in a certain future. And Jesus didn’t stay at one place saying to people: ” Wait until I come back I will help you” Noooo, He helped everyone he could when he was on earth. We know Christian Leaders are wrong when they focus on when Jesus comes back instead of doing and promoting exactly what Jesus was doing. A real God should be a God of logic, this world becoming a better world for all makes more sense than to promoting and/or talking about another futuristic one.

God and the Bible

Nowadays, the arguments against the authenticity, the indubitable character  and the  proof of an Almighty God’s existence from the Bible have overwhelmingly grown.

The multiple contradictions, the inaccuracy of certain events and the forgery of others have put the Bible scholars in a bad shape.

In addition to the proven data found, the mistranslated portions and the usurpation of authors’ names are some of the challenges the Bible scholars are still facing unsuccessfully.

When for thousands of years, a perception of the truth has established itself as unquestionable and all of the sudden, the challenges faced are insuperable; it is quite alarming for those who not only died for defending this truth but also for those actually willing  to do so.

Exactly for those people, I am writing this post. In fact, I do not pretend to end with this continuous polemic, neither do I expect to bring any plausible outcome of it. However, there is a question we should all ask ourselves objectively without considering the weight of our oriented beliefs, keeping in mind that I am still a Christian who really knows what he is talking about.

And before I go on, I want to clarify that unless you can question what you  believe without any fear, you are not free. Of course, we were taught to just believe and period, but unfortunately or fortunately, this period of time is completely gone: No one should just believe in anything without comparing the sources, investigating and more importantly without seeing (having a clear and balanced understanding). Now, by questioning what we were taught to just believe in as true, their foundation and accuracy, we may seem like a reluctant believer and  we may even expect to be treated like an outsider, an intruder, or to be categorized anything else; and we should not be worried about that. So, if you are a believer, don’t be afraid of questioning your belief like I do.  I think the Almighty and All Powerful God has nothing to do with a set of beliefs created and manipulated by men.

The question we should all ask ourselves as I mentioned in the previous paragraph, is as followed: Can the Great Almighty and All Powerful GOD be found in the Bible?

According the Bible, the answer is : “NO”

We will never find this kind of GOD in the mix of manipulated, oriented and mistranslated information. Information that often presented a God of confusion,  with little power, unfair, contradicting Himself etc… The more we study the Bible, using all the data we have, the more obvious these evidences are. Please, don’t get me wrong, we are talking only about certain portions of the Bible. Without any intention to discredit the true stories and messages of the Bible, I am considering the confusing parts where the Bible scholars are inventing explanations that make no sense trying to justify their truthfulness and forcing people to simply believe. Remember, we are talking about written texts that suffered numerous alterations from one language to another, from one context to another, from one period of time to another, and even from one culture to another. When I see people taking it personal, getting emotional because the accuracy of those texts are being questioned, I simply don´t get it:

An Almighty and All Powerful God that often just “tests” his people to prove them His is right /they are wrong or to see  how much faith they have in Him, is questionable. Although the Bible scholars will argue tooth and nail that God ‘s people are the ones who always or most of the times fail  those tests, it remains contradictory when in other similar cases the same God acts differently according to the same Bible.

Nevertheless, the facts are, according to the Bible, as follow: Adam failed: That is the reason why the world is a mess; Abraham failed: That is the reason why the two brothers are continuously fighting against each other); Moses failed: He was not allowed to enter the Canaan; the story of the Israel (Nation) is a constant failure and because of that the All powerful and Almighty God kept on punishing them…What is also surprising is the fact that one way God punishes them is to allow other nations those that don’t even believe in Him to enslave or dominate over Israel.  The Almighty and All Powerful God is then always asking them to repent, to turn back to Him so that He can bless them again, and again, and again; and then the Christians, with a different message from the same God, this time through Jesus Christ, the Messiah supposedly rejected by Israel. The same God that clearly instructed Israel not to use any creature, object or whatever to get to Him, is now saying that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no one gets to God except through Jesus. Christians will argue that’s the way, the only way: There is no other way to get forgiveness for sins and to be saved but through Jesus Christ. It sounds like the Almighty God changes the process since prior to Jesus, God’s people (Israel/Judah) could just confess their sin, repent and then they were forgiven.  Of course, Christians will find an explanation and try to prove they are right. Then the Muslims with Mohammed as their last prophet claiming that the promise made to Abraham was for Ismael descendants, the big brother, not Israel the little one. A Muslim is fully committed to follow the dictations of Mohammed: He is not questionable, period.

The same Almighty and All Powerful God had spoken about the end of the times and the resurrection through different prophets (Daniel, Ezekiel, Jesus, Paul, John, Mohammed, the Americans etc.), not only each one is different, but worse, they are many interpretations of each one. Again, how does an Almighty and All Powerful God willing to tell the future to his people let them so lost about understanding it the only way it is? Why do they have to have their own view about it if it really comes from the same source? Based on what evidence would someone prove one is right and the rest are wrong, if they are all using the Bible?

By the way, when we simply listen to their respective subjective arguments, each one will sound right, although they are some key historical and objective facts that can discredit one while favoring another.

When because of the Bible most people don’t find it fair enough that an Almighty and All Powerful God could have led the human history that way, and as a result, choose to deny His existence, they seem to have a case, because the more the Bible scholars explain, justify, deeper is the bridge that separates them to the ones who are challenging the Bible and even more when  using historical data.

If the idea that there is One super God, and other gods(also with some type of power) is true, then we need to find Him where human beings with the help of these gods can’t misrepresent, can’t manipulate, can’t disorient the information about Him.

We need to find HIM where the proof of His Super power resides unquestionably, where the proof of HIS  love for humanity is undeniably shown within us leading us to understand, to tolerate and love each other. Also, the Bible scholars have to think it twice when willing to mention Prophecies and Miracles from the Bible as a great proof of identifying the All Powerful and Almighty God:

  • Prophecies: In almost all civilizations and beliefs, we have found people with special power to predict some type of events, the Bible has repeatedly referred to those (although as false), so the prophecies found in the Bible and verified through the Bible cannot on their own prove that the inspirations that those prophets received are from the Almighty God. Besides, lot of prophecies are being interpreted differently by over thousand views, which pretend each one to be from the same Almighty and All Powerful God. It is impossible for the Almighty and All Powerful God not to allow those who desperately believe they have been inspired by HIM, to understand prophecies the same way.
  •  Miracles: All Beliefs through all ages have claimed the power of doing or experiencing miracles. In fact, miracles still take place everywhere. So, the miracles reported in The Christian Bible, the Jewish Bible and The Koran are not unique to them, The Almighty and All Powerful God cannot be found in the Bible through Miracles.

So, why did I say that the Bible itself says where to find GOD?

The King David, a proven Israel King around a thousand years BC wrote in Psalms 19 and I am quoting:

” The Heavens declare the glory of God; and the  firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge…”

Clearly, king David anticipated that if we want to find God, we simply need to take a look at the universe, and we will soon get to the same conclusion as him. There is no in between, no misinterpretation, no translation, no forgery. Everyone can confess they have never been able to see the SUN, but they do know it exists, and because of its immensity and its temperature, no one can get close to it. If we agree that the sun doesn’t move, and that the sun makes life possible on earth, certainly we can ask: how does the sun come to exist? Should the sun be a result of the Big Ban theory or was the sun in fact created?

By the process of elimination, any scientist will have to admit that the sun has to be created until proven otherwise, if not there is no other way for it to make sense. And, if still no one can get close the sun and remains alive, no one can even contemplate it like we do with the moon, we need to conclude that its creator, the real source of energy, the real source of life,  has to be less approachable.

Again, according to David, God’s power and love are obvious throughout His creation: no faith needed.

Each single human being, or group of human beings claiming that they know God in all His Immensity and dimension, and that they can even speak for Him are simply hallucinating; if not, they would have to show full knowledge of at least all things created such as the sun, men etc. This is basic logic: How should one be able to know the creator if he/she doesn’t have a full knowledge of his creatures/works? Mostly, those people claiming to speak on God’s behalf, don’t even fully know themselves ( as God’s creatures).

Can I pretend knowing Plato if I don’t know ALL his works? The problem we have here is a society characterized by talking about people, things and places they don’t really know. The Bible scholars are not an exception, on the contrary, they are so blind that they don’t mind inducing the whole human race in their obsession of knowing God rather than stepping back and reconsider the foundation, the logic of their beliefs.

First, The God they claim talking about is the One who supposedly created the whole universe, the Sun included, no one has ever been able to approach the sun, while everyone benefits from its temperature. In other words, God created a material world, He also created men, but men invented that we need to find the Creator in a Spiritual world: Makes no sense at all. We need to a priori understand, dominate the material world we are living in, then, if we have not found God within His creation, we may surely come up with this as an alternative.

As we are looking forward to seeing what the Rosetta mission, the first one in human history with that caliber,  will bring to humanity as information through Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, we as human beings must reach the stage of understanding the fact that if there is an Almighty and Al Powerful God, the best way to find Him is through His creation which as of today has not been manipulated by men. Each time the Bible is used to show God to the world, it is becoming a waste of time because people who want to understand and to know, will challenge it with no way out.  The Bible doesn’t unite humanity, instead, it creates more confusion, that is why around the Bible ( sacred book) there are that many interpretations and beliefs. On the other hand, the sun as maybe the most important and indispensable element in our solar system, does unite humanity.

The next question is: If there is an Almighty and All Powerful God, first of all, does He have a plan for humanity? If yes,  where then can we find it?

 

UNDERSTANDING THE MYSTERY OF SALVATION FOR ALL (Part 1)

 




Do you really want to hear about this topic from a different view?

Well, Well, Well… Of course, it goes beyond all kind of imagination.

I will never be able to separate myself from my original belief throughout my writings which is: I am a Believer in GOD, in Science and technology. I Know that God exists, He is Real, All Powerful. However, I also believe that our lack of knowledge is what separates us from knowing Him fully. That is why I believe the more Science and Technology grow, the closer we are to Him.

As we know, there are many views and interpretations of the human origin. As of today, I still believe that Man was created, as well as the Universe. I already established the fact that if someone else believes otherwise, it is fine. What I am about to elaborate on as a result of my belief in GOD and the human creation will bring hope to the human race  totally.

No one on earth has ever lived in a different world than this one, where there is only good and no bad. It is quite foolish to even think about a world where there will be only “good” and that “bad” would have disappeared. We have no evidence, no reference from someone who had lived in a world without the “bad”.  Some even said that it won’t make any sense, a world without one of these two. Keep in mind that the term “good” or “bad” isn’t only referred to man. We can also refer to good or bad weather for example. The only reference the human race has about the origin of the good and the bad comes from what supposedly happened in the garden of Eden.

According to this reference, everything was simply “good” at the beginning.  The only first two human on earth, Adam and Eve have tasted for a very brief period of time what living in a world only good means. But everything changes as soon as they ate the prohibited fruit. Okay.

As vague and simple it may look like, that is the only tangible and sustainable explanation we have, historically talking. No one has to believe in it as true, literally or symbolically, the fact is: we live, since then, in a world with good and bad.

I know, the Seventh Day Adventist church will never accept and support the theory that I am about to promote in relation to the Mystery of Salvation for All, nor will any Christian Church. Although Dr. Elizabeth  Talbot, a Seven Day Adventist Pastor is promoting the Mega News from the book of Luke: Salvation for ALL, it is not quite an idea that the Church is willing to join fully. She said clearly that according to the Gospel of Luke, Salvation has been secured  for ALL.

What I am saying  that I don’t know if she would say is that ALL means everyone: the religious and the non religious, the believers and the non believers, each and every single human being has been granted salvation without having to believe it. That is my full interpretation of Salvation for ALL.

First statement: No one has ever fully understood God’s Nature:

When someone talks about God, he/she refers to what supposedly God is to him/her. Human beings as we are, the more we get to understand and to know the world we live in on a daily basis, the more we will understand and know GOD, as a result, the closer we will be to Him. I want to establish this view before moving on because some of us will try to talk about God as He is in reality, when in fact, they will be talking about Him according to what He is to them.

Nowadays, what sense does it make to someone, hearing about Salvation if this person has no idea about its origin?

Christians established the fact that Salvation is for All but at least only those who accept it will get it. In other words, if you don’t accept it, you will be lost.

Common sense: Why do I need to accept Salvation if I don’t know when and why I don’t have it. I don’t even know its purpose.

Let’s look at the Christian interpretation about Salvation:

Adam and Eve were created perfect to live eternal life, but they failed to obey God and committed sin, consequently, God punished them to death, as a result, they became impure, imperfect, sinners and the whole human race carries the same consequences. Since Adam and Eve are our first ancestors, because of what they did, no human being can be perfect anymore, we are all lost. We have to suffer in this life and die. Now, Jesus Christ Came on earth and gave His life to rescue humanity from death and give them eternal life back. But, we still have to suffer and die in this life, if we accept His sacrifice, then when He comes back, He will give us (those who believe and follow Him) eternal life and everything will be perfect again. Meanwhile, we still can feel His presence, His help when we seek Him.

My problem with Christians’ view:

Christians are “stealing” Israel’s God (They use the history of God with Israel, first testament) and they add the history of Jesus the Messiah also God to them, and they have their Holy book called the Bible. Now they are trying to expand and to make Israel’s God, the world’s God. I really don’t mind, in addition, thanks to them, I got to know God.

They want the world to  believe that we are lost and we will be lost when the end comes if we don’t believe and accept Jesus as our Savior. They have introduced  the Concept of Salvation for All, but they put a price on it. They basically gave up on this world (to them nothing good can come from it) and only a few will get to the other world. Christians like other religions, forget above all and after all we are all human with the same problems, and that our first concern should be the well being of humanity.

In all four Gospels they use in the Bible, it is clearly shown that Jesus’ first concern was the well being of the humanity: justice, tolerance, respect, equality etc.

Christians have failed to look at the big picture:

If we are to believe in what is reported as the Origin of Man: then, God is the Creator of Man, God is the God of Man, not the God of a pre-selected nation called Israel, He is the God of the Egyptians who kept Israel in captivity for 400 years, He is the God of Buddhists whom we have no sign in the Bible and all other surrounding Nations to Israel and to the whole World historically and geographically.

While all human beings are in the same mess because of what one and the first man did, if this is true, why do Christians pretend that what they call Salvation can’t be for All through the One they said, came to save the whole word? In other words, why if it is true that we are all lost because of one and the first man, without us choosing it, can’t we be all rescued the same way, without choosing it, because Jesus Christ decided voluntarily to offer himself in sacrifice to rescue us? Adam, being the first human,  had so much power that what he did affected humanity in full, and we are not able to change it, but, isn’t Jesus Greater than Adam? In that case, why can’t Christians understand that Jesus’ sacrifice should not be anyway exclusive, whether one believes or not.

If another world has to come to substitute this one, shouldn’t it be because the Creator has found a way to fix the problem from its origin? If one man can enter to the new world, all human should because we are not the ones who originally mess this one up, why should some of us be excluded?

In order to fully understand the Mystery of Salvation, we simply need to understand the Mystery of being lost.

Even before we are born, we are already lost –  because of what happened in the garden of Eden. We don’t need to choose it, the devil is inside us,  each man carries a beast inside, a spirit that leads us to hate, to be bad to ourselves and to others. The fight in between ourselves is the greatest one ever. We don’t have it all to the same degree, but we all do at some level.  How Am I responsible for the bad spirit I carry inside when I have not chosen it? My point here is simple: God has taken full responsibility for what happened in Eden.

Human have been able to overcome a lot of differences such as Slavery, discrimination, tolerance etc. Although Christians and other religions are to promote all good manners, human rights, including tolerance according to their Holy Book, bizarrely, civil rights movements are the ones that have been pushing towards those goals. As times pass by, human beings are getting to understand each other more, tolerate each other more, and even love each other more.  Although much more need to be done, we are happy to live in a better world today than two millennium ago, and for sure, two millennium after, the world will be much better.

Now, let’s go back on our topic: If Salvation is for All, that means, it is not only for Christians, obviously we can’t all be christian, nor it is only for Jews.  If Christians want to keep promoting Salvation for All, they need to start promoting the fairness of God: God is fair enough not to let perish the whole humanity, nor part of it because of what happened at the very beginning of human’s life.

The same way we couldn’t change our destiny when one and the first man committed sin, neither can we change the redemption that was brought to us through One Man, even Bigger and Greater than the one who committed sin, the Son of God, also God.

Only when we get to understand the Mystery of Salvation, we will realize that it is no longer an issue, it is really secured for all and that our focus should be to get the whole human race  ready to live with each other without any type of injustice, intolerance, and discrimination while we are transiting through this world.

Part 2 is coming.

 

 

 

 

 

Your Belief, Your Truth.

 

Born and raised as a Seventh Day Adventist, I think  it is surprising to advocate for any type of faith.  In fact, I truly believe in my God, The One  I walk with every day, the One Who lives in my heart; The One Who listens and answers me whenever I seek Him.

Of course, I believe the seventh day is the day set a part to praise and adore Him completely. I train my daughters in the same path. I praise God Jehovah, as well as Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. I also believe that I am saved because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, Jesus Christ.

I have seen miracles done in my own life and others’ lives. The way I believe, is the truth for me. I am a follower, I belong to a Christian Church,  created by a group of men and women 170 years ago. I can’t even imagine that I could change to a different doctrine/religion because  The way I believe has always worked for me.  Whenever I get stuck in  this life, my Lord has been there to deliver me no matter what.

From where I came from, there is no other way on earth I could be that successful in this life without my Lord, my Savior and that is my belief, the way I was taught about Him since I was born. I have seen His Hands taking  me out of difficult times. Being the oldest child, when I  turned 14,  I was already an orphan, but I never felt alone, He was always with me,  guiding me surely: studying and working  while taking care of my 2 youngest sisters. We were going to church every Sabbath, we were praising and praying our Lord at home as we were taught to, and this worked perfectly for me.

Even now, more than ever, I feel Him closer to me, when most of the times I don’t even act properly. He has blessed overwhelmingly my family. Very deeply, I have always believed that if God is real, He has to be real  in my life. Whatever I have heard or learned about Him is good to know, but what is really great is the fact that He is real in my life.

Who can tell me that my way of believing is wrong? How on earth someone would be able to show me something different?

And of course, I wanted to believe that was the only way, I tried to convince others to be like me, to  be Seventh Day Adventist as well.

I have come to discover that the way people  believe doesn’t matter at all. There are so many ways…From Seventh Day Adventist to Atheist: Which one is truth? One of them or none of them? Why not all of them?

Why should that matter if all of them work for some of those that follow them: Miracles happen everywhere for those who believe and even don’t believe in miracles. Some people truly believe in “Saints” because they have had results or they know someone who had been blessed that way. I don’t believe in “Saints” and why should that matter to convince them that they are wrong, simply because it is not my belief? It has worked for them, this will be always true (to them).

I don’t believe there is any absolute truth about the way ones believe or not. What is the Religion that works 100% for its followers? NONE.

Most people die with the hope to have a better life, to be cured from a certain disease, etc… That’s the truth about religions, none of them work for all their followers.  However, I was tempted to believe that my own experiences with my God were directly linked to my religion, when unfortunately few people in my religion can refer to their own experiences like me, while surprisingly people from different beliefs are having  the same type of experiences.

Every believer representing a doctrine or a religion has been making the attempt to say that they have the truth which is actually their truth based on their own understanding, What proof can I have, can you have about our beliefs that would make any change to the ongoing way of the world? NONE.

Each one will continue to fight, to sustain their own belief, besides the economical and social power/interest we have behind each one. Since the beginning, God has been a Mystery.  Each individual has been having his own and personnel experience with HIM, so we will always have our interpretation of God. I believe that GOD Himself understands this fact and that is okay with HIM. The Day HE wants us to have the same view of HIM, He will reveal Himself to everyone, the same way.

If we can live in this time where technology is growing significantly, we are not to simply repeat things that are no longer sustainable. The concept of God, only, refers to Superpower and I understand that, before, people couldn’t have a clear view of what a Superpower could be. Also, God should be someone practical, pragmatic not theoretical. And if we refer to the creation of the universe for which He takes credit, we can see that He is Logical: everything works perfectly.

In my opinion, Technology is helping us to understand GOD. No one has ever seen INTERNET, but everyone believes in Internet TODAY.  Now, did the entire world believe in Internet 50 years ago?  NO. Fifty (50) years ago, that means,  year 1966, Internet was starting to exist in about 3 countries: USA, Great Britain and France. I can even imagine if those professors working in these science laboratories could believe in what Internet is TODAY and the Power that goes with it. Maybe the time hasn’t come yet for us to have a clear and common understanding of God; so why fighting with someone to believe in God your way?  Why even fighting with someone to Believe in God? This is not necessary, we can simply accept these facts as temporary. If God is True, at some point, He will be true for all of us because no one will ever question His existence. The Truth is absolutely true only when it becomes unquestionable.

Of course you need “Faith” to believe in things you can’t see or things that will happen when you don’t see how.

God has to be Bigger than any type of technological revolution, in other words, Technology will bring humanity to GOD and then the view of God will be the same. (That’s my own projection)
