More crimes of violence and hatred are committed because of religion and mistranslations and errors in interpretation than for any other reason. Errors in the Bible must be exposed to understand Christian-Muslim hatred for each other and the wars of religion from the earliest times to the promised Armageddon of the New Apostolic Reformation that has anointed Rick Perry of Texas to sit on the left-hand of its god.Read More
Over one million suicides occur each year. While many are the exit strategy of those suffering an incurable and painful disease, there is a growing number of suicides among preteens and teenagers--especially in the USA and in the Sixth Congress District of Minnesota that is represented by Michele Bachmann. No state is exempt, but a new thread is appearing: bullying those weaker than their opponents, and in the name of religion or "freedom" to express an opinion even if it compells children to end their lives. The greatest damage comes from evangelical Christians and the notion of a "holy life" style--or face the threat of going to hell. Why do people believe in this concept and when does one reach the breaking point and stop contemplating suicide and take action?
For centuries hell was cursed and used as a curse against those who did not agree with a rigid religious mistranslation of a single word. The modern-day Hell is Scandinavian in origin (first used in Iceland) and has no relationship to the word used in the Bible, Qur'an or other religious literature. It is the abuse of the word, its mistranslation and misinterpretation that has cost millions their lives and today is one of the roots of suicides among young teenagers in the USA and other "faith-based" nations. What can be done to stop this epidemic?
John of Patmos is said to be the author of Revelation: the book of the End of Time. Many argue that he wrote it from having two dreams: a worldwide war, and the end of the world. It is not a unique story, nor are the characters within it from the Beast with seven heads (the goddess Tiamat) to the horsemen. This essay fleshes out the original essay on the Apocalypse: a nightmare, and looks closely at mistranslations that have occurred since the second century with every cult wanting its own Bible to defend its position, as with Jehovah's Witnesses to suicide cults: Jonestown, Heaven's Gate, and others. The real question is: was John of Patmos Island sane?
As the economic well-being of any people plunges, starvation and unemployment skyrockets, many will seek out demigods and dictators or turn to religion for temporary euphora. Some will argue that bad times are the sign of End Times and an Apocalypse is near. Is the Apocalypse fact or fiction? Here is the judgment of history, texts, and scholars.
Genesis begins the contemporary Old Testament but was written after the Torah was composed as seen in its use of many laws from Leviticus and Deuteronomy, citations from older biblical texts as well as massive plagiarisms from the theologies of ancient Egypt, India, Akkadia, and throughout Mesopotamia. Far from Elohim being good, the true account shows a blood-thirsty pirate, enslaver, and mind-controller giving the early Habiru (Hebrews) little choice and stagnating their growth.
There are conflicting accounts of the person known as Jesus and what Jesus did or did not do during his life on earth as recorded or ignored in the Bible. This essay looks on four separate Jesus Christs as contained in the gospels and compares the records with other documents that still exist
The Koch Brothers have bought the New Hampshire legislature, sending their Oregon/Washington representatives Dan and Carol McGuire to New Hampshire where the McGuires bought their seats in the House of Representatives to rid the state of minimum wage, utility protection laws, and civil rights.
