The Anti-Fundamentalist Fundamentals Church That Went Nowhere

June 29, 2010 2 comments

Jonathan Flores, No Ordinary Singer: Pastor Galen!: This Satanic person just shows up out of no where judging and legalizing and misquoting the Book of Quotes and talkin’ bout’ kissin’ on the lips n’ nakededz stuff people in bikinis! He was so negative and unholy and of Satan. I used my highest speechems and wordums on him to show him whose boss n’ smartiest, but he was juz stubborn as a Jew’s stiff neck, the Christ-murderers! (Jonathan says while clutching a Bible to his chest with a look of great distress).

Pastor Gas-Money Galen: Well holy shuckems that sounds horrible. Well ya know Jonathan, you know what I always say about such people.

Jonathan, Magnifique Musicial One: What’s that oh great and wise pastor who “hears from God”?

Pastor Gas-Money Galen: “Yah reap what yah sow son.”

Jonathan, Seer of Great Tunes: *smiles* Aw shucks I love it when you call me son, makes me feel equal to high second in command master Dustin, super pastor. And heh heh, huh, yeah, “reapin what’s sown”, so true indeed it’s obvious and apparent.

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Satan will gettem’, always gets the nay-saying Nellies. He’ll teach those who speak against us and our word a lesson they’ll soon not forget, for we are the true and most righteous and wisest of Christians, which is why my prophecy of our church moving soon came true. Shaytan has power Jonny, mark my word, that dark devil demon from Hell has power, great power. Big power.

Jonathan, Worship Master Extraordinaire: Wait what?

Pastor Gas Money Galen: You questioning my version of reality son?

Jonathan, MASTER of SONG and… DANCE: Oh no way, I’m not into that legalistic stuff, no way. Hey there’s a dull spot on your boots. Really tiny but I can see it, should polish that out even though it’s as small as a gnat. Want me strain at it?

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Oh a speck isn’t going to bother me, that’s not manly.

Jonathan, Singer
: Oh yeah yeah you’re right, ignore I mentioned it then.

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Forgotten and forgiven.

Jonathan, Musician: Jesus is Lord!

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Hey, I think I’m hearing from God.

Jonathan, Majestic Musician: Really, wuh, can I hear? What’s he saying? I mean what’s he obviously apparently saying?

Pastor Gas Money Galen
: He’s saying “Go get something to eat, for soon we’ll need full bellies to move the church, and that will be soon.”

Jonathan, Lover of Music: But you just said…

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Jon, don’t be negative.

Jonathan, Songmaster!: Oh oh yeah that’s right, be positive.

Pastor Gas Money Galen
: And not legalistic.

Jonathan, Special Maker of Tunes: And not legalistic.

Pastor Gas Money Galen: “I pledge allegiance…”

Jonathan, Holy Golfer AND Musician: “I pledge allegiance…”

Pastor Gas Money Galen: “To obey the Galens, like they are God’s voice on Earth…”

Jonathan, Master Player of Synthesizers: “To uh…”

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Damnit son what’s wrong with you? Must you question my every word? Just obey! Don’t question, don’t hesitate, don’t think, don’t go to Scripture, just obey okay!

Jonathan, Master of Master Musicians, Almost: Geeze gosh okay, please just keep your voice down don’t humiliate me in front of the others or kick me out of the synagogue ok? That would be a shame I could not bear, for I love to play music and to get the great attention and praise I receive from it. I like watching the youths hug each other real close and sensual too from the view I have after I’m done turning them on to the Lord, doesn’t distract me a bit to see that.

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Now you ARE hearing from the Lord oh Jonathan like of the Jonathan of Biblical ancient old apparent obvious times.

Jonathan, the Manly Musician: *Smiles*: I love you.

Pastor Gas Money Galen: *Raises his eyebrows*: I love you to son. Don’t worry me anymore with hesitation. Be quick to obey and agree when I speak, be positive.

Jonathan, Who Sings Like He?: Yes: I understand master Galen, *he says in a robot voice* (as if he’s lost his sacred sovereign golden free will, untouchable… except like when demons possess you, so dare not God control a person’s will, that’s demonic!)

Pastor Gas Money Galen: *Slaps his hands together* good boy, now lets fill up at Flying Star. I love that place, such decadent chocolate.

Jonathan, Who Sees the Notes As They Truly Are: That’s obvious and apparent.

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Uh, yeah. Man you use big words you know that? That means you’ve got smarts. I ad-mire ur skillful use of uncommon words

Jonathan, Who Hath Power Over the Tones as He?: *Smiles a big manly cowboy smile* and says, “Hey that’s my word, ‘admire’. *Suddenly Jon looked serious and looked at Galen’s chest*.

Pastor Gas Money Galen: What?

Jonathan, He Can Sing!: Um, do you think I sing the same songs too many times?

Pastor Gas Money Galen: What? Don’t be silly. That’s like, that weird negative crazy talk that crazy people talk. Man I love your little ditties. They’re serene and comforting son, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, repeat and replay all you want. So, no more such paranoid talk.

Jonathan, Who Uses Big Words (and he can play the piano): Thanks that’s sweet of you, I really feel better, more positive and inspired, less rigid and dogmatic. Such is indeed that which is an apparent judgment of truth.

Pastor Gas Money Galen: Man you are so smart… now lets go.

Pastor Gas Money Galen and his trusty third in command, sort of, side kick Jonathan Awesome Repeater of Songs and Tunes goes out the office door headed for Flying Star Cafe, eager to fill up their manly bellies on smooth, delicious, classy, preppy (and manly) chocolate cake.

A little while later the anti-Christ showed up to begin his mass murders of beautiful white Christians, with some blacks and hispanics among them, and one Native American, but Jesus took them up and their chocolate cakes plopped (and in the case of the Native American, his MSG filled generic can of half-opened beans) spilled and hit the ground as they flew up into the clouds with Christ, Christ who was invisible to the world lest it be counted as the second coming of Christ, which would be really confusing.

Later, some people reading Bibles and remembering Jonathan’s “Accept Jesus Into Your Heart and That’s Salvation Tour” remembered the title of the tour, and became saved, but then the anti-Christ chopped their heads off because mainly they blacks and hispanics, and God doesn’t care as much about them as whites. But in the end, the Christians got their heads back and Satan lost. The end.

Botox May Temporarily Paralyze Emotions

from HealthDay News
6/17/2010

For Botox users concerned that the muscle-paralyzing injections will rob their face of its ability to show emotion, a new study suggests that people injected with the toxin might end up with less strong emotion to display in the first place.

Researchers at Barnard College in New York City found that facial expressions appear to play a role in how your emotions develop, not just in how you display them for others to see.

The study suggests that facial expressions themselves may influence emotional experiences through a kind of feedback loop. In short, Botox — a toxin that weakens or paralyzes muscles — not only changes one’s appearance, but also appears to deaden real emotions.

“In a bigger picture sense, the work fits with common beliefs, such as ‘fake it till you make it,'” study co-author Joshua Davis, a psychology professor at Barnard College, said in a school news release. “With the advent of Botox, it is now possible to work with people who have a temporary, reversible paralysis in muscles that are involved in facial expressions. The muscle paralysis allows us to isolate the effects of facial expression and the subsequent sensory feedback to the brain that would follow from other factors, such as intentions relating to one’s expressions, and motor commands to make an expression.”

Davis explained that “with Botox, a person can respond otherwise normally to an emotional event, e.g., a sad movie scene, but will have less movement in the facial muscles that have been injected, and therefore less feedback to the brain about such facial expressivity. It thus allows for a test of whether facial expressions and the sensory feedback from them to the brain can influence our emotions.”

The study was published in the June issue of the journal Emotion. – Source

A Toothbrush that Stands Upright

After thinking about this toothbrush for a few minutes, I thought it wasn’t so original as there are already electric
toothbrushes like from Sonicare that can stand upright, but then I realized these were more compact, elegant and beautiful. More here.

You Must Wait Two Hours Before Reporting Someone Elses News Rules Federal Judge Denise Cote

by Jacqui Cheng
6/23/2010

Google and Twitter have weighed in on the “hot news” doctrine, which grants newspapers in some states a time-limited, quasi-property right over facts they report, arguing that the legal concept is old ‘n’ busted in the instantaneous Internet age.

The companies filed an amicus brief in the legal case between financial website theflyonthewall.com and Barclays Plc, claiming that Internet chatter cannot be contained and that restricting the spread of news content could hurt the public.
Free-riding fly

A US federal judge ruled back in March that The Fly had misappropriated content from major analyst firms—Morgan Stanley, Barclays Plc, and Merrill Lynch—to get a “free ride” on their stock recommendations.

The firms (and the judge) believed that they had invested time and resources into researching the market, and The Fly was making money off of their hard effort by offering subscriptions so that users could access The Fly’s near-realtime writeups of the analysts’ work.

Judge Denise Cote agreed that the site was directly competing with the investment banks by publishing their time-sensitive information, “thereby substantially threatening their incentive to continue in the business.” She ruled that The Fly must wait a minimum of two hours before publishing information about the banks’ reports—a crippling blow to a site that competes on the Internet against hundreds of others that do publish that information instantaneously.

The Fly came back after the injunction asking if it could publish this information after it appeared elsewhere (such as Dow Jones, Reuters, Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal—the list goes on). The company argued that it was going out of business due to this unreasonable restriction and may soon be forced to close.
The difficulty of drawing a line

Now, Google and Twitter have jumped to The Fly’s side. In their amicus brief, the two companies said the idea of “hot news” protection in the Internet age is “obsolete.” They pointed out that it’s nearly impossible to implement some period of exclusivity for news when it can spread so quickly across blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and so on, and that upholding such a restriction could actually hurt the news-consuming public. – More here

Ramblin’ Steve: a Giant False Christian

June 23, 2010 39 comments

See also: Steve Quayle, False Christian

False Christian Pastor, Robert Tilton
Sweeet money: gimme ur money so I can buy more cool stuff for myself oh flock!
I like Texas a lot, yessum, I do indeed. Yee, yee, yee, yee, yee, yes iiiin DEED!

If anyone has been listening to Steve Quayle tonight on Coast to Coast AM, it’s another good example of what a liar this person is. He rambles (amazingly George Noory is skilled enough to be able to get a word in without it sounding like either is talking over each other) and floods, as if to avoid having to answer any hard questions. When George asked him if he had any scientific evidence for his claims (for example giants having the ability to kill people with electromagnetic waves produced from their skulls), Steve replied, “Of course there is” but gave none and continued to ramble. Very weasely. He cites the Bible as if it were evidence for his claims, yet if you read the Bible you can see that it doesn’t even hint at giants having the ability to hurt anyone from a distance with EM waves. He also, to my disgust, cited that fraud Tom Bearden, and cited the usual nonsense Bearden is known for pretending to be an expert on: scalar waves and perpetual motion. Bearden is a liar who incredibly, managed to dupe some mainstream (evolutionist) scientists into letting him ramble about “his” free energy MEG in their science journals. His mathematical rants have been exposed as hoaxes years ago. Incredibly, it took me to get Wikipedia to put an article up on this con, and despite me citing the evidence that he was a con, Wikipedia deleted the page in jealousy, knowing I was a creationist, but then later added a page on him, a page that didn’t even mention criticisms against him till long after, and even when it cited some of the same evidence I pointed out against his fake science, were merely put as foot notes at the bottom. Why were they protecting this idiot?

During the show George played a song from Steve’s daughter, some country song, part of which was, “I ain’t no housewife”. Is it humble or “Christian” to make housewives appear to be something bad or shameful? Obviously not, but Steve raised that woman.

Steve Quayle is a greatly damaging heretic because he promotes pseudo-science and gives a false impression of what a true Christian is.

Update 2:41 P.M.: What a surprise: Just now Steve said he wasn’t always for turning the other cheek and “I’m not a pacifist”. That makes it pretty clear where his daughter got her arrogant, “I ain’t no housewife” attitude. Hypocritically, after saying this, he kept asking what was wrong with saying, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” So love equals shooting at “giants” and government agents or those who offend you or trespass against you? Jesus also said, “Love your enemies”, “bless those who persecute you” and “not to resist an evil man”, not “resist and shoot your enemies”.

2:47 P.M. A caller just reminded me, indirectly, that spirits are not material beings, yet Steve claims that they can turn into giant beings of flesh and “an appropriate size”. Steve also teaches the false claim that the “Sons of God” mentioned in Genesis were evil angels who had sex with humans and made demonic giant children as a result. “Sons of God” however implies something good, Christians. The Bible doesn’t call evil angels “sons”, it does repeatedly call Christians “sons” however. Only once does the Bible refer to all humans as “children” of God. In Genesis, when it says that the Sons of God took wives from among men, it’s talking about Christians marrying and having children non-Christians.

At about this time Steve said that he believed some book he was selling was going to sell out (in other words to get it now so that others who want it won’t be able to get it, nice), but wasn’t boasting when he said that and wasn’t trying to pitch his book; I don’t think so.

2:55 P.M. Steve is telling everyone that you can see giants who are pretending to be ordinary humans with sound waves. Ridiculous. So everyone is going to go out buying sonar vision now to see who might be preparing to attack them with their EM power and eat them (Steve claims all giants are cannibals).

While listening to this show, Steve, besides sounding like a classic “bullshitter”, reminded me of that false Christian, con pastor televangelist Robert Tilton. Steve’s babble is even like Tilton’s fake speaking-in-tongues routine.

Pastor Robert Tilton smells imaginary bread.

Just imagine givin’ me all your money sweet flock.
Just visualize, then give. That’s right: God wants you to fork it
all over to me. Oh bibili babili babalah babiboh, rahdi tih tah TAH!

Pastor Robert Tilton using his imagination.

I smells me some bread, n’ it smells like, muh muh muh muh munay.
Tithe to Tilton, and ur’ tithin’ to the Lord. 1-800-GIVE-2-GET-RICH
Have faith my friends, have faith. Mmm mmm mmm.

Armada of U.S. and Israeli Warships Head for Iran

by Kurt Nimmo
6/19/2010

More than twelve U.S. and Israeli warships, including an aircraft carrier, passed through the Suez Canal on Friday and are headed for the Red Sea. “According to eyewitnesses, the U.S. battleships were the largest to have crossed the Canal in many years,” reported the London-based newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi on Saturday.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported Egyptian opposition members criticized the government for cooperating with the U.S. and Israeli forces and allowing the passage of the ships through Egyptian territorial waters. The Red Sea is the most direct route to the Persian Gulf from the Mediterranean.

Retired Egyptian General Amin Radi, chairman of the national security affairs committee, told the paper that “the decision to declare war on Iran is not easy, and Israel, due to its wild nature, may start a war just to remain the sole nuclear power in the region,” according to Yedioth Internet, an Israeli news site.

The passage of a warship armada through the Suez Canal and headed for the Persian Gulf and Iran is apparently not deemed important enough to be reported by the corporate media in the United States.

Egypt recently rejected an Israeli request to prevent Gaza aid ships from passing through the Suez Canal. According to a report by al-Jazeera, Israel appealed to Egyptians asking them to prevent the passage of Iranian ships through the Suez Canal. The Egyptians responded that due to international agreements on movement through the Suez Canal, Egypt cannot prevent ships from passing through the canal unless a ship belongs to a state that is at war with Egypt. Iran and Egypt are not at war.

The United States and Israel, the sole nuclear-armed power in the Middle East, have not ruled out a military strike to destroy Iran’s nuclear program.

A number of Israeli politicians and scholars have admitted Israel has used its nuclear weapons for “compellent purposes,” in short forcing others to accept Israeli political demands.

Israel’s threats to use nuclear weapons have increased significantly since it was discovered in 2002 that Iran was building uranium enrichment facilities. Israel’s former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon “called on the international community to target Iran as soon as the imminent conflict with Iraq is complete,” the Sunday Times reported on November 5, 2002. The United States invaded Iraq on March 20, 2003.

Earlier this month Israel leaked to the press that they had permission from Saudi Arabia to use their air space to attack Iran. “In the week that the UN Security Council imposed a new round of sanctions on Tehran, defence sources in the Gulf say that Riyadh has agreed to allow Israel to use a narrow corridor of its airspace in the north of the country to shorten the distance for a bombing run on Iran,” the Sunday Times reported on June 12. On June 14, the ambassador of Saudi Arabia to UK Prince Mohammed bin Nawaf issued a categorical denial of the report.

On June 17, Iran’s parliament warned it will respond in kind to inspection of its ships under a fourth round of sanctions imposed on the country by the UN Security Council. “Even if one Iranian ship is stopped for security-check, we will act likewise and thoroughly inspect any (western) ship passing through the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz,” member of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi said.

Also on Saturday, Iran accused the United States of “deception” and insisted its missile program is for self-defense after a top U.S. official claimed that Iran had the capacity to attack Europe. “The Islamic Republic’s missile capability has been designed and implemented to defend against any military aggression and it does not threaten any nation,” Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said in a statement carried by state media.

Vahidi announced on April 10 that Iran will use all available options to defend itself if the country comes under a military attack. “Americans have said they will use all options against Iran, we announce that we will use all options to defend ourselves,” Vahidi told the Tehran Times. – Source

The Best Solutions for Removing the Gulf of Mexico-BP Oil Spill Disaster

After thinking about it and listening to a few ideas I think this would best get rid of the oil that is polluting the Gulf and getting on the beaches nearby:

1) A caller on Coast to Coast Am suggested putting a tube over the broken pipe. That’s a no-brainer.

2) The U.S. should start manufacturing automated and remote-controlled giant oil filtering ships (so that no one has to be on the ships to breath in the toxic chemicals coming out of the oil hole) using “Kevin Costner’s” oil reclamation technology (from the Ocean Therapy Company).

3) Oil-eating bacteria should be spread on the oil including on beaches.

4) If a hurricane appears to be in the process of sending the oil at the coasts of the U.S., then a neutron bomb should be detonated on the surface of the ocean where hurricane is and over the areas covered by the most oil. Besides the oil being burned off, much of the deadly gases would also be burned off by the nuclear explosion. The sea life in that area is already going to die anyways, so that’s nothing to worry about.

Additional benefits:

1) Some unknown sea creatures might wash up on shore for us to look at and clone. Hopefully we’ll finally get our hands on the body and skeleton of some bizarre giant sea “monsters”.

One of the dinosaurs of Matt Damon, ac-TOR, says didn’t exist 4000 years ago
(cuz he and other God-hating fake wisemen feel it must be true
since Christians can’t be intelligent, they just can’t be damnit, damnit!).

2) It would be fun to sea what a neutron bomb does to a hurricane, something that’s never been seen or done before. It would also, hopefully, if carefully monitored, provide the world with some helpful scientific information about the effects of nuclear bombs on weather, especially hurricanes.

3) The little radiation from the neutron bomb might drift over onto the nearby coasts and cause the “small people” (aka the “fundies” and liberal Spring Breakers) and cause them to mutate into big people.

4) Would make for a great story and movie.

Sneaky Reiki: Why Has Japan Been So Successful In Modern Times?

June 17, 2010 5 comments

[3-31-2011 I’m aware of the Fukushima disaster, and it doesn’t refute this article, because there are corrupt corporations everywhere who ignore doing good, I’m talking about Japan’s recent superficial improvement in the decades since WWII in this article]

I wondered last year, I think last year, why Japan was very successful despite it’s high suicide rate, wide spread sexual immorality and nonsensical Buddhist teachings (the last two contribute to it’s suicide problems obviously), and while studying what I thought were or might have been teachings of Buddha, called “The Five Precepts” or “The Five Principles” were actually a either deliberately distorted modern invention which were originally called “Concepts” by the Buddhist monk named Mikao Usui “came up” with them, or an obscure set of rules from the 9th century from an obscure sect of Buddhists. I’ve read that these rules (the mistranslated version) is taught by all Buddhist monasteries to the monks and nuns and lay persons. Someone, I don’t know who, mistranslated them so that they were similar to some of the ten commandments. The man who wrote them down, seemed to be teaching them around 1922, which is a long time after Christians and the partial Christians called “Catholics” began teaching the 10 commandments to the Japanese. The original “Concepts” were merely three concepts, with one not meaning what it seems to say:

The Secret Method Of Inviting Blessings
The Spiritual Medicine of Many Illnesses

The First Concept: Today only [as in today for you]: Anger not. Worry not [which a student of Usui’s, Dave King, implies wasn’t literal, but that, “To not worry is itself worry!” which is an obvious contradiction].

The Second Concept:

Do your work with appreciation.

The Third Concept:

Be kind to people.

The mistranslated versions widely taught by Buddhists are:


1. Do not kill
2. Do not steal
3. Do not indulge in sexual misconduct
4. Do not make false speech
5. Do not take intoxicants

or


1. I undertake the precept to refrain from destroying living creatures.
2. I undertake the precept to refrain from taking that which is not given.
3. I undertake the precept to refrain from sexual misconduct.
4. I undertake the precept to refrain from incorrect speech.
5. I undertake the precept to refrain from intoxicating drinks and drugs which lead to carelessness.

And as evidence that they were modified to enhance Buddhism by making it more Christian-like and to more easily convert Christians (and those holding to some Mosaic/Christian laws) to Buddhism or at least make it more acceptable to them, was that the female BuddhistHawayo Takata added “Honour your parents” to the end, and her lie spread.

And from these some Buddhists have expanded on by adding a few strange rules to, making an eight precept version:

3. I undertake the precept to refrain from sexual activity.
6. I undertake the precept to refrain from eating at the forbidden time (i.e., after
noon).
7. I undertake the precept to refrain from dancing, singing, music, going to see
entertainments, wearing garlands, using perfumes, and beautifying the body
with cosmetics.
8. I undertake the precept to refrain from lying on a high or luxurious sleeping place.

And there is also a 10 precept version which splits rule 7 into two rules:

7. I undertake the precept to refrain from dancing, singing, music, going to see
entertainments.
8. I undertake the precept to refrain from wearing garlands, using perfumes, and
beautifying the body with cosmetics.
10. I undertake the precept to refrain from accepting gold and silver (money).

It is because of the Christian-like rules, the ones compatible with the Bible, that Japan, which is about half Buddhist, has been able to prosper so greatly.

Someone has speculated out for years that the Shinto religion has similarities to the Old Covenant religion (Old Testament laws), but sadly, it doesn’t appear that ten commandments had any influence on it.

The Book of Esther Revisited: Is it God’s Word?

While studying Buddhism again, after being harassed by a Buddhist and Gandhi-supporter named “jaspoet”, who childishly contested a quote I used from Buddha (stupidly assuming that I took it out of context, while ironically confirming that I used it correctly, showing how stupid this person was), I noticed a part of his sayings that sounded like a rip of of verses from the book of Job. I already knew that certain of his sayings were very close to certain things Moses said, so it made me wonder if he had been in contact with Jews. I learned in my research that he may have been born much earlier than is usually claimed, and that he was instead more likely to have been born in 1887 B.C. as is worked out here. Then in my research I discovered that the earliest known Judean presence in India, came much later, around 485-465 B.C., when Xerxes ruled ancient India.Buddha’s father, who was a king, or Buddha himself may have sent out people to explore the world for him and bring back information as to what they learned, or some Judean traders may have, while trading with India, given information about their laws, which eventually were learned by Buddha, pieces of it at least. Then I was curious about Esther again, wondering if it was God’s word, and after reading more information about it from a few websites, and maybe a pdf or two, and again read that it was devoid of any religious promotion that would indicate it was God’s word. I contested this as a reason to reject it in my previous post on the B.O.E., saying that the Bible didn’t need to constantly refer to God for it to be understand that it was his word, for example saying after every sentence, “This is God’s word” or “said God”. I was also trying to find where I had read that it was nonsensical that Esther or someone had requested that the day of the hanging of the Agagites and those who tried to aid them against the Jews, be celebrated the day after, and wondered if perhaps it was because of an existing holiday (and now that I write this, perhaps some royal person’s birthday) on the day of the hanging (which would have made it confusing for some or awkward), and so I started reading it from the beginning. Soon I came to a verse (and a second, which is one of the main lines of the story I just realized, which makes it stand out even more) which made me realize for certain that it was God’s word, and thought it strange that it hadn’t been mentioned in the evidences that is was his word:

“Then Haman said to King Ahasuerus, ‘There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of your kingdom.  Their laws are different from those of every other people, and they do not keep the king’s laws, so that it is not to the king’s profit to tolerate them.'” – Esther 3:8. And a first part of the next verse is,

“If it please the king, let it be decreed that they be destroyed“.

It reminded me at first of the current situation of Christians. The Bible prophecies will one day happen to them: an attempt by prominent persons – the AntiChrist, False Prophet and the Beast – to destroy them all, and while writing this am reminded of past attempts to kill all the Christians, like the polythiest pagans of Rome tried to do over hundreds of years, in brutal ways, who later converted to Catholics, becoming even worse and trying to forcefully convert other kinds of Christians, and torturing or mass-murdering the ones who wouldn’t at various times.

And so, contrary to the claims that Esther is devoid of mention of God or religious references, ironically, it’s indirectly mentioned, implied as being one of the main reasons Haman used to try and get the king to kill the Judiates.

Esther 3:8 also makes it obvious why Mordecai had Esther hide her race as mentioned in one verse, and the verse in which Mordecai refuses to bow to Haman combined with the verse that Haman was an Agagite (part of race that were enemies of the Jews as mentioned earlier in the Bible), is evidence that Esther was a continuation of the Agagite vs. Judeans/Israelites storyline (which symbolically represents the unsaved world (which includes demons) vs. Christians and their God.

I wrote a little book on the similarities between God’s word and Buddha’s sayings (the verses in the Old Testament I refer to are much older than even the latest date of when Buddha was born), which you can read here hopefully.

Note: at about 4:25 A.M. I found that that saying of Buddha that reminded me of something that Job said, was hardly similar, and that when I carefully read what Buddha said, or at least the translation, saw that it was obviously wrong, destructive and stupid. It is:

“Your evil thoughts and words hurt but yourself, and not another; nothing so full of victory as patience, though your body suffer the pain of mutilation.” Since when do evil words never hurt anyone? How is it “full of victory” to merely have patience? So if I have the patience to torture someone in a certain way or abuse them, that’s “full of victory”? And since when does your body have to be mutilated if you have patience for something? Clearly, Buddha was a liar. I also found hours ago that he was probably the source of the New Age self-affirmation nonsense, in which you tell yourself that you are something or have some quality and that by doing so it’s true, though it may also have come from the warped interpretation of Jesus’ teaching that if you have even a very tiny amount of faith in him, that you can then command a mountain to go into the sea.

Update 6/19/2010, 2:57 P.M.

I learned that I made a mistake in what was considered an evidence against Esther being God’s word: I thought an argument was that Esther asked king Xerxes to make it a holiday after Haman had been killed, but then I checked around this time and remembered the argument was that it was nonsensical that she had asked for Haman and his ten sons to be hanged after they had been killed. The claim that it is nonsense/illogical is baseless as no illogicality is demonstrated. Just because the reason isn’t obvious or given right away doesn’t mean it is without a reason. The reason is obvious to me, and I’m sure many others. Whoever it’s not obvious to must be “new” to life and not that thoughtful, since everyone knows that putting a dead person on display is meant to be a message of warning or to provoke fear. Esther’s motive (if she was saved) would have been to try and put terror of God “of the Judeans”  into those who saw their enemies of Judeans hanged. Also, the verses after Esther 9:13 also indicate that the Jews had other enemies in Xerxes’ kingdom that she wanted killed, and so the hanging would have been used as a battle/war tactic to frighten their enemies, to remove their their pride and courage to fight back, or at least fight back well. And the use of putting bare bones on stakes or allowing bodies of some sort to dissolve into dry bones or making bare crossbones as warning and fear-provoking signs is common, but no one argues, “That makes no sense to hang things that are dead and don’t even have the flesh on them anymore”. So it’s obvious those who argue over the timing of the hanging are blind because of their hate or deliberately being hateful. I just realized I may have remember incorrectly again the argument over the hanging, and that the argument was that Esther nonsensically asked for it to be done the next day (after Haman and his sons were killed) rather than on the same day, which is the oddity, which ever argument it is neither explains why it is nonsensical. If she asked for it to be done the next day, it might have been to give the king time to think about it, rather than rushing him and perhaps angering him over being asked to make a rash decision like putting dead people hanging in public. Also if she asked for it to be done right away, and not knowing well Xerxes’ personality, he may have thought Esther and other Judeans to be people who flippant about displays of morbidness or sadistic. In other words, Esther implied with request, “Consider for a day whether or not to hang them”, and Xerxes may have not realized she was being polite and considerate. It may also be that Esther truly did want for a delay of a day so that everyone in general would not think her or Jews to be sadistic or flippant about displays of death. On top of that, the delay would give time for people to be made aware that such a shocking and long display of gruesome death was going to be shown in public, and so that those with children could prevent their children from seeing such a thing if that was their wish. In other words, Esther didn’t may have been showing politeness and consideration by avoiding offending those with children and those who didn’t want to see such a thing as they travelled. Obviously though she did want them to be seen in public by at least a large number of people willing to see such a thing, so that news about the success of the Judeans over their direct enemies would spread.

Also, the Bible says that those who are hanging on a tree (or some object made mostly of a tree), are cursed for having done wrong and that everyone who has done wrong is to be hanged on a tree (or some object made mostly of a tree). Judas was one of the most evil people the Bible implies, and his hanging came early, and was so evil you could say, that he took his life into his own hands and hung himself on a tree. But that that wasn’t the ultimate hanging, is perhaps evidenced by another verse in the Bible which implies that the rope he hung himself on snapped and that he fell and died in an even worse way. If it’s true that all who don’t repent are to be hung, then on the Day of Judgment, billions of people will, at the very least, be bound to a log or stake, and left there to hang for some time. It seems fitting to me that they would be “thrown” into Hell while still on that stake or log, and that they would serve as perpetual fuel for the “fire” there. I didn’t realize what the tree was supposed to represent till writing that previous sentence, and would have finished saying that I didn’t know, but I think it may represent “fuel for the fire”.

U.S. boosts flow estimate of BP oil leak by 50 percent

HOUSTON (Reuters) – A team of U.S. scientists on Tuesday upped their high-end estimate of the amount of crude oil flowing from BP Plc’s stricken Gulf of Mexico well by 50 percent, the second major upward revision in less than a week.

U.S. | Green Business

The scientists said the “most likely flow rate of oil today” ranges from 35,000 to 60,000 barrels (1.47 million and 2.52 million gallons/5.57 million and 9.54 million liters) per day.

That is a significant jump from the last estimate issued by the Flow Rate Technical Group on June 10 and pegging the well’s flow at 20,000 to 40,000 barrels per day.

And those figures were considerably higher than the previous “best estimate” of 12,000-19,000 bpd issued by the flow rate group on May 27.

“This estimate brings together several scientific methodologies and the latest information from the sea floor, and represents a significant step forward in our effort to put a number on the oil that is escaping from BP’s well,” said Energy Secretary Steven Chu.

The team of scientists said they may revise the estimates again as they gather new data on the well, one mile beneath the ocean surface.

Even at the minimum estimated rate of 35,000 bpd, the ruptured well has dumped nearly 2 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20 — nearly eight times the amount that the Exxon Valdez spilled into Prince William Sound in Alaska in 1989.

At the U.S. government’s direction, BP is boosting its oil capturing capacity to up to 53,000 bpd by the end of June and to 80,000 bpd by mid-July from about 18,000 bpd.

The new estimates come from detailed pressure data taken by instruments inside BP’s oil-containment device on the sea floor over the last 24 hours, the government said.

“This estimate, which we will continue to refine as the scientific teams get new data and conduct new analyses, is the most comprehensive estimate so far of how much oil is flowing one mile below the ocean’s surface,” Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said in a statement.

Atheist vs. Atheist vs. Benjamin Franklin: Co-founder of Panda’s Thumb Chastises Christopher Hitchens (for Lying)

June 16, 2010 1 comment

Speaking of evolutionists wrecking their “reputation” and image, I just discovered a few minutes ago, but what I think should have gotten more attention and repeated, it’s last years news, but I doubt it’s gotten much attention, so here it is again:

Hitchens Distorts Franklin’s Religion
by Ed Brayton
4/13/2009/9:09 AM

I saw this Youtube video at Balko’s blog of Christopher Hitchens debating the utterly dense Ken Blackwell about whether this is a Christian nation or not. Balko says Hitchens “annihilates” Blackwell, and that is true. Blackwell babbles like an idiot for most of it. But what jumped out at me was something Hitchens said that just grinds on me because it is so blatantly false and it is being presented by someone who so often speaks for causes I believe in.

Speaking about the Declaration of Independence, when Ken Blackwell mentions the notion of unalienable rights being self-evident, Hitchens says, “The person who put in the words ‘self-evident’ on that committee was Benjamin Franklin, who was undoubtedly an atheist.” But this is every bit as transparent a lie as anything David Barton has ever said.

There is not a shred of evidence that Franklin was an atheist and volumes of evidence from Franklin’s own writings that prove he was not. The most obvious is in a letter that he wrote to Ezra Stiles a mere six weeks before he died in which he laid out his creed:

Here is my Creed: I believe in one God, Creator of the Universe. That He governs it by his Providence. That he ought to be worshipped. That the most acceptable Service we can render to him, is doing Good to his other Children. That the Soul of Man is immortal, and will be treated with Justice in another Life respecting its Conduct in this. These I take to be the fundamental Principles of all sound Religion, and I regard them as you do, in whatever Sect I meet with them. As to Jesus of Nazareth, my Opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the System of Morals and his Religion as he left them to us, the best the World ever saw, or is likely to see; but I apprehend it has received various corrupting Changes, and I have with most of the present Dissenters in England, some Doubts as to his Divinity: tho’ it is a Question I do not dogmatise upon, having never studied it, and think it needless to busy myself with it now, when I expect soon an Opportunity of knowing the Truth with less Trouble. I see no harm however in its being believed, if that Belief has the good Consequence as probably it has, of making his Doctrines more respected and better observed, especially as I do not perceive that the Supreme takes it amiss, by distinguishing the Believers, in his Government of the World, with any particular Marks of his Displeasure.

This certainly is not Christianity, but neither is it deism. And it sure as hell isn’t atheism. Hitchens needs to stop this, immediately. It discredits him and, by extension, the causes he fights for, many of which need fighting for. He will do to the cause of separation the same kind of damage that Barton has done to the other side. Here’s the full video:

Pentagon rushes to block release of classified files on Wikileaks

by Jerome Taylor
6/12/2010

Wikileaks’ founder Julian Assange has pioneered the use of information mainstream media are unable to publish

It has the ingredients of a spy thriller: an American military analyst turned whistleblower; 260,000 classified government documents; and rumours that the world’s most powerful country is hunting a former hacker whom it believes is about to publish them.

Pentagon and State Department officials are desperately trying to discover whether Bradley Manning, a US army intelligence officer currently under arrest in Kuwait, has leaked highly sensitive embassy cables to Wikileaks.org, an online community of some 800 volunteer cyber experts, activists, journalists and lawyers which has become a thorn in the side of governments and corrupt corporations across the globe.

Reports in the US say officials are seeking to apprehend Julian Assange, the website’s founder who has pioneered the release of the kind of information the mainstream media are either unwilling or unable to publish.

Manning, 22, an intelligence analyst from Potomac, Maryland, who had been serving in Iraq, was revealed earlier this week as the source behind a highly damning leak earlier in the year that showed harrowing cockpit footage of an American Apache helicopter gunning down unarmed civilians in Baghdad three years ago.

But the Apache video may have proven to be one leak too far. Adrian Lamo, a former US hacker turned journalist who had been conversing with Manning online and later gave up his name to the authorities, said he also claimed to have handed 260,000 classified US embassy messages to Wikileaks.

According to Mr Lamo, Manning said the documents showed “almost-criminal political back dealings” made by US embassies in the Middle East which, if true, would cause enormous embarrassment to key allies in a notoriously volatile area of the world. Mr Lamo claims Manning said that “Hillary Clinton and several thousand diplomats around the world are going to have a heart attack when they wake up one morning, and find an entire repository of classified foreign policy is available, in searchable format, to the public”.

If those responsible for the site wanted any confirmation that the US military have them in their sights, they only need to look at their own website. In March this year Wikileaks published a leaked 32-page intelligence report which described the site as a “threat to the US Army”. – More here

reaching the place of judgment ahead of them;

Private Investigators Discover Obama is Using a Connecticut Social Security Number

U.S. President Barack Obama waves as he leaves after dinner at Komi restaurant in Washington

NEW YORK – Two private investigators working independently are asking why President Obama is using a Social Security number set aside for applicants in Connecticut while there is no record he ever had a mailing address in the state.

In addition, the records indicate the number was issued between 1977 and 1979, yet Obama’s earliest employment reportedly was in 1975 at a Baskin-Robbins ice-cream shop in Oahu, Hawaii.

WND has copies of affidavits filed separately in a presidential eligibility lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia by Ohio licensed private investigator Susan Daniels and Colorado private investigator John N. Sampson.

The investigators believe Obama needs to explain why he is using a Social Security number reserved for Connecticut applicants that was issued at a date later than he is known to have held employment.

See the movie Obama does not want you to see: Own the DVD that probes this unprecedented presidential eligibility mystery!

The Social Security website confirms the first three numbers in his ID are reserved for applicants with Connecticut addresses, 040-049.

“Since 1973, Social Security numbers have been issued by our central office,” the Social Security website explains. “The first three (3) digits of a person’s social security number are determined by the ZIP code of the mailing address shown on the application for a social security number.”

The question is being raised amid speculation about the president’s history fueled by an extraordinary lack of public documentation. Along with his original birth certificate, Obama also has not released educational records, scholarly articles, passport documents, medical records, papers from his service in the Illinois state Senate, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and adoption papers.

Robert Siciliano, president and CEO of IDTheftSecurity.com and a nationally recognized expert on identity theft, agrees the Social Security number should be questioned.

“I know Social Security numbers have been issued to people in states where they don’t live, but there’s usually a good reason the person applied for a SocialSecurity number in a different state,” Siciliano told WND.

WND asked Siciliano whether he thought the question was one the White House should answer.

“Yes,” he replied. “In the case of President Obama, I really don’t know what the good reason would be that he has a Social Security number issued in Connecticut when we know he was a resident of Hawaii.”

Siciliano is a frequent expert guest on identify theft on cable television networks, including CNN, CNBC and the Fox News Channel.

Daniels and Sampson each used a different database showing Obama is using a Social Security number beginning with 042.

WND has further confirmed that the Social Security number in question links to Obama in the online records maintained by the Selective Service System. Inserting the Social Security number, his birth date and his last name produces a valid Selective Service number.

To verify the number was issued by the Social Security Administration for applicants in Connecticut, Daniels used a Social Security number verification database. She found that the numbers immediately before and immediately after Obama’s were issued to Connecticut applicants between the years 1977 and 1979.

“There is obviously a case of fraud going on here,” Daniels maintained. “In 15 years of having a private investigator’s license in Ohio, I’ve never seen the Social Security Administration make a mistake of issuing a Connecticut Social Security number to a person who lived in Hawaii. There is no family connection that would appear to explain the anomaly.” – More here
