o me the Venus Project seems to be almost childlike - spoiled child like. It reminds me of a young child who knows no better but to depend on the parents for everything and thinks they are entitled to every toy they see on the shelf.
Furthermore, I hear much about this Resource Based Economy and it seems to be quite impractical, unsustainable, and rather against the idea of personal freedom.
Also, a person would have to give away all of their personal freedom just to live under such a system. We would all be forced to beg like a sniviling child at the toy store, waiting for those in control to hand us our next new toy. Eventually we would become nothing but spoiled, fat, lazy, stupid children unable to do for ourselves other than wait for the next cookie.
Even secular scholars have rejected the idea of Christianity borrowing from the ancient mysteries. The well-respected Sir Edward Evans-Pritchard writes in Theories of Primitive Religion that "The evidence for this theory is negligible." The first real parallel of a dying and rising god does not appear until A.D. 150, more than a hundred years after the origin of Christianity. So if there was any influence of one on the other, it was the influence of the historical event of the New Testament [resurrection] on mythology, not the reverse. The only known account of a god surviving death that predates Christianity is the Egyptian cult god Osiris. In this myth, Osiris is cut into fourteen pieces, scattered around Egypt, then reassembled and brought back to life by the goddess Isis. However, Osiris does not actually come back to physical life but becomes a member of a shadowy underworld...
This video was created by BigTimeweb www.youtube.com... Why the direct attack on Christianity in Zeitgeist The Movie Part 1 (part one on religion)? It insinuates that the story of Jesus is merely a drop in the bucket of many saviors with the same story. That they were all born on Dec 25th, crucified, ressurected etc... I found it SHOCKING! Sooooo shocking that I spent a month and a half of my life researching the valididty and sources of the claims and this is what I found.
The Shanghai Transrapid project took ¥10 billion (US$1.33bn) and two and a half years to complete. The line is 30.5 km (19.0 mi) track and has a further separate track leading to a maintenance facility.
And lets not forget all the Technologies that TPTB are holding out on from us. I think we can only dream/imagine at some of that.
We won't see it in our lifetime, or perhaps, ever in the history of humanity, but I'd like to believe that somewhere in our Ginormous Universe that there exists a society much like the one described.
