This is more or less a statement I am making, you can reply by agreeing (durrr) or by disagreeing (if so, please provide a valid argument)
The last 100 years have been more influential than any other century in human history. This is largely because of discoveries made in science, IE:
theory of relativity, proof of the big bang, etc…We have evolved a long way from fear of sea monsters, falling of the edge of the earth, blood
letting and poking holes in one’s head to remove evil spirits but there is still much left undone.
I believe religion was made to suppress the evil thoughts inside man, back then there was no system of government like we have now, if someone wanted
to kill you and rape your wife, they would do it, and most likely, depending on there social rank, would get away with it. Times have changed but the
fundamentals of religion (10 commandments) have not, now people are taking those core beliefs and perverting them to fit their will, which will only
isolate your sect and turn away the people who might otherwise follow you (most people today would be considered sinners and thus shall burn in hell
for all eternity), this will be the downfall of mainstream religion.
I believe in a higher power of some kind, what that is, is/MUST be beyond human comprehension, if only the bible stated that, then maybe we wouldn’t
have so many evangelicals trying to put words in God’s mouth and say what God thinks is right or wrong.
Nothing in today’s world seems to surprise me anymore. Just as Galileo was persecuted (and threatened to be burned at the stake for his heretic
claims that the earth was round) we (the elected government and religious leaders) do the same to gays by denying them the hundreds of rights our
government gives to straight married couples. We tell the victims of rape that their child is a gift from god and if they have an abortion they will
burn for eternity. I thought church and state were separate?
Unfortunately the problem with our nation is lager than what I have stated above; there is a group that remains relatively unseen to the masses that
controls the majority of media and the minds of the people in the western world. The Middle East and the West have been at war longer than most seem
to care, its true origins date back to the first crusade (The Nights Templar, the group that has evolved into what is now known as the Freemasons)
These men were not only our founding fathers they are also the same men that rule the presidency to this day. This information brings new light into
why we are hated so much in the Middle East and why the UK is our only real ally in our current crusade.
“The background of the Bushes is much more elevated than anyone would realize if they had not seen the Bush pedigree. Not only are they descended
from kings and queens, but their wives are also, and they are related to other former U.S. presidents, who are also descended from royalty. George
Herbert Walker Bush has three lines that go back to King Edward I of England. He also is descended from King Henry I and King Henry II, both of
England, and William I and Robert II, both of Scotland. Bush has common ancestors with 15 American presidents: Washington, Fillmore, Pierce, Lincoln,
Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Cleveland, both Roosevelts, Taft, Coolidge, Hoover, Nixon and Ford.”
Not just the presidency:
“Not a single black or Hispanic is to be found among the nation's sitting governors. The same is true for the Senate, whose 100 members represent a
population that is 12.5% Hispanic and 12.3% African American. Five women are governors and 13 are in the Senate, both record-high numbers. But the
statewide jobs that historically have been steppingstones to the presidency have remained mostly out of minorities' reach. Of the 1,864 people who
have served in the Senate since 1789, 15 have been minorities: four blacks (two elected), three Hispanics, four Asian Americans, three Native
Americans and one Native Hawaiian. More than 2,200 people have served as governors. Nine have been minorities: four Hispanics, three Asian Americans,
one black and one Native Hawaiian. When his official portrait was hung in the state Capitol in Richmond several years ago, former Virginia governor
Douglas Wilder, elected in 1990, remains the only black ever elected governor in any state. Edward Brooke is the first of only two blacks ever elected
to the Senate.”
Democracy in this nation is an illusion, with everyday more and more people realize this fact, and everyday more people grow angrier as our rights are
disappearing before our eyes. Sooner of later the proverbial straw will break the camel’s back and then the government of this nation will have a
new “threat” to deal with, one that will not be quelled so easily.
