I'm sorry but your post is painful for me to read, from your so-called 'connection' between the Flood and the Tsunami, to the idea that Communism
But this evil political party (a demonic religion) has committed immensely large sins against sentient beings and gods and Buddhas throughout its
history, and the gods will certainly judge and deal with this evil demon.”
Now I realize that you did not write this yourself, but to post it means that you believe it. Its true that Russia and China have committed atrocities
under 'communism', but neither one of these countries was truly communist. They violated many communist principles, especially by setting up a small
'elite' to control the masses, something that would never happen under a truly communist society. The truth is, communism is good in theory, but
people corrupt it in the end and turn it into something horrible that is NOT communism. There is nothing 'evil' about this ideology, only the people
that run a country under its name. Read the communist Manifesto yourself as I have done, you'll see the same thing. Or if you don't decide to, I'll
tell you the main principles:
Abolition of Private Property.
Heavy Progressive Income Tax.
Abolition of Rights of Inheritance.
Confiscation of Property Rights.
Government Ownership of Communication and Transportation.
Government Ownership of Factories and Agriculture.
Government Control of Labor.
Corporate Farms and Regional Planning.
Government Control of Education.
That's it. Nothing evil here. The only real problem I see with this philosophy is that it abolishes religion and the absolute morality that is
attached. It was assumed that people were moral by themselves and didn't need religion to 'brainwash' them for lack of a better word, but in the
end Marx assumed wrong.
That is exactly what happened in the tsunami South Asia. Just minutes before the tsunami hit the area, the sky was clear and the ocean was as peaceful
as ever. When the first giant tide pulled away, people were in awe, admiring the huge wave or even chasing after the receding tide. Then the next wave
hit. It was so huge and sudden that no one had time to think or respond.
If you're going to compare this tsunami to the Flood, you may as well compare the Flood to every other tsunami that ever occured on the planet. A
clear sky means nothing. Most tsunami's occur when plates shift (like with the recent tsunami), when meteors hit, or when a large land mass falls
into the ocean. Weather had nothing to do with it. Are you sure people were in 'awe' when the first wave hit? Can you state with abosolute certainty
that these people were actually chasing
after the first wave?? I'd say the more likely scenario is mass panic as people looked for their loved
ones and ran for cover before the next wave hit. But I won't say this is exactly what happened because I wasn't there. Every time some major
catastrophy occurs people have to attribute it to doomsday prophesies. We're still here and have survived our own demise many times in the past. Are
some people that
dissatisfied with life?
