Editorial: December 2001.
To those who are concerned:
I am surprised (after feedback provision and invitation) that no
response has been received to start reasoned discussion of the human
situation. To clarify these matters discussion is essential. It
would be good to begin our second year on-line with the opening
of serious discussion.
Perhaps some have been confused that Christian Revelations have
been included but if we are serious about finding the truth of human
life we cannot be discriminatory about potentially vital contributions.
If we want to live by truth rather than by ego-based man-made religions
we need to search all areas of knowledge that may throw light on
our true human nature.
Thoughtful readers will also like to take a little time rather
than rush in with off-the-cuff comment, others, raised to compete,
may feel overwhelmed. I can't complain about the former and the
latter should realise that competition is neither the only or best
means of progress. Time passes: can we begin just by beginning?
Will any normally intelligent adult deny that the world is becoming
more dangerous by the hour? In hope of getting discussion started
I put this position:
I have said that the terrorist campaign may be the beginning of
the disintegration of The Great Whore of "Revelations"
(now clearly identifiable as the city of commerce). This disintegration
is a large event that could take years, not weeks. Can we learn
from history? As is truly said, those who cannot learn from history
are forever doomed to repeat it.
First let us understand that the revelation of Mohammed (570-632)
though in the Hebrew lineage of religion, came later than did Jesus.
The Byzantine Empire was founded on commerce; it was taken over
by Islam and flourished to become (less than 1,000 years ago) the
leading world civilisation. But in the take-over by Islam the commercial
nature of the empire was not destroyed. Nor was the immorality of
a corrupting commerce destroyed by the disintegration of that empire;
the weed of greed was already planted in the fertile soil of the
Christian garden. Is there a lesson for us here?
Were we able to transport to the Byzantine era at its height, would
we be surprised at how similar their beliefs and attitudes were
to present beliefs and attitudes? Would we find the same pride,
arrogance and humanistic self-righteousness as now being expressed
in today's increasingly self-destructive social attitudes?
Given the nature of the order of creation exposed in Of TRUTH,
and the manipulation of humanity exposed in Globalism-Brainwash,
may we assume that, before the Byzantine Empire disintegrated, the
attitude of the commercial city infected and corrupted the revelation
given to Mohammed? Is there here a preview, or warning, for our
Can we have some thoughtful comment on that please? Or would someone
prefer to turn to the matter of the crumbling chance creation myth?
I hope readers have been watching the increasing TV efforts to justify
this myth. Have you noticed that the latest evidence of genetics
only reveals more clearly that chance creation is a myth? Here again
we see that those educated to fanaticism cannot accept the meaning
of the evidence that they find; but will they have the courage to
take this evidence into the classroom?
