Editorial #2 - August 23, 2003
The Earth is Round
A Saga of King Harold.
As said at the close of our last editorial, we have lessons to learn.
Yes you know the earth is round but the fact is that at one time
almost everyone believed it was flat and even today there are still
some 'flat-earthers' about.
Today almost everyone believes that life was created by chance;
they prove this by their behavior though their words may deny it!
These also believe that elected governments are democratic and,
strange as it may seem, they also believe that elections make the
elected govern for the elector's benefit.
Given belief as above then it naturally follows that industries
would not produce alcohol and tobacco if these substances were detrimental
to community welfare. No sensible person believes pharmaceutical
companies would knowingly produce and market substances that cause
sickness and death; nor would industries create and promote as "healthy
nutrition" foods that did not meet our basic nutritional needs.
Also, for that matter, we now cannot believe that our government
would allow education to promote theories as fact or introduce to
education ideas with no demonstrated benefit.
People would be confident about this because, of course, 'their'
governments would not allow such deceits. Nor would governments
send us to war in order to seize assets rightly belonging to other
people unless of course it was to benefit their own nation's people.
We are the fittest and deserve what we take. We accept history showing
family members killing each other for power or pride of position
but such atrocities could not take place in our nation. That even
worse atrocities may happen in our own countries and lifetimes is
unthinkable; we are a loving humanist culture.
Given such beliefs people will die of heart attacks and cancer
with little complaint; they will watch their children destroy themselves
with drugs and believe these, like wars, are just ailments beyond
government control. They will allow governments to suppress freedoms
and rob them of their birthright; protesting only in traditional
ways because it is their government and democracy is dedicated to
our overall benefit. Government must defend us against doubts, protestors,
fools and fanatics.
Our good government provides us with bread and circuses so that
we can forget how poor we are in spirit and to give us things other
than enlightenment to occupy our minds. Today's problems may have
been rare in the past or not in such numbers, but its all part of
unstoppable progress. So we, like those who still believe the earth
is flat, fear to face the evidence because we may have to stand
against our fanatical peer group; but may the peer group hide similar
doubts and feelings of betrayal?
It took nearly 300 years for doctors to accept that scurvy was
a nutritional disease and to accept that a cure/preventative was
commonly available. We now have a nutritional disease called cancer
for which cures/preventatives are known. Note:
But yes, today things really are different! Today we have huge
industry largely owned or controlled by the families who rule governments
and, through them, our world. This industry makes $billions out
of treatments for cancers. Cancers and other health problems that
are created by nutritional deprivation and Public Relations promotion
of dubious food products. Meantime we ignore the logical fact that
huge population reduction will greatly benefit those calling themselves
Globalists recognize no loyalty to nation, state, culture or race.
They look beyond such pettiness because they are the master race.
They own the world financial system and direct the policies of all
governments in exchange for debt.
So we may ask ourselves this: If we think that we know everything
that matters, and are therefore not prepared to use the intelligence
we were given - if we don't think that our lives or the future of
life on earth is worth a little thought or effort or sacrifice of
pride - if we are afraid to challenge our comfortable peer group
attitudes then are we ourselves not supporting a culture intent
on mass murder: a war of genocide against ourselves?
As a teenager I read a book called "HAROLD", interesting
but nothing special except for a significant insight near the end
of the book.
Harold was a King of England and the incident is suggested to have
happened at the time of the Norman Invasion. Harold has a good friend,
a witch, and as he gets his army together to battle the Norman invasion
the witch sets to work to create a victory banner for him. As there
is not much time she gets the village maidens to help and they work
day and night to get it finished just in time to give Harold as
he rides off.
So the witch goes back to her cabin and sleep. On awakening she
inspects her pond and the frogs and feels very satisfied with herself;
but then, as she gazes into the pond a horrifying reality dawns
on her! She really loves Harold! As an intelligent witch she knows
that, without allowing for this, she would have been biased in her
planning! Every sign and design for victory would be biased, good
would turn to bad and it was now too late to warn Harold.
Well, as history tells, Harold had all the bad luck; an arrow in
the eye killed him and the war was lost.
For the record I, years later, was able to get a copy of that book,
but on reading found that piece of basic intelligence missing (A
later edition?). But I had learned the lesson and that's the important
thing. How many millions of children have suffered bad advice (misdirected
upbringing) by loving parents unaware that their bias was unwittingly
leading their children into harms way?
But no! It was not the parents who were at fault it was the fault
of the culture they lived in. They were not warned against the deadly
dangers of biased thinking and thought that love was all a child
needed. Or perhaps just did not love truth as much as they loved
their children. Or is it that we do not love our children enough
to, for their sake, put truth first? Sad isn't it? In any case unthinking
desires bias our behavior and influence. Parents see this most clearly
when looking at other parents!
It is no-one's fault but it is everyone's fault. Certainly every
Christian's fault for our Scripture clearly tells us (even if our
common sense doesn't) that truth must be our first and guiding love.
If we show favor to our preferences ahead of truth then we make
biased judgments. If we do not know are we then excused?
Scripture also tells us: Seek and you will find; knock and the
door will be opened. So we also have responsibility! We can be excused
where we did not know but when we say we know the truth of something
and can't be bothered to look unbiased at the evidence then we become
Yes it is sad but even more so today because people now have more
opportunity to know better. But we, both as individuals and as communities,
ignore intelligence and established evidence. Jesus of Nazareth
told us that Truth was our God but why should we believe him? Why
should Christian churches and people who claim Christianity not
be rewarded equally for just claiming to be followers while ignoring
Most of us, as individuals or as communities, never even try to
understand statements of Jesus that were so far ahead of their time
that most of us, even today, do not see their truth without effort.
Christians do not separate the miraculous scripture of superior
knowledge from the mundane scripture based on, misunderstanding,
bias or misquotes. We really only have to accept that our Creator
was intelligent and question-mark statements accredited to Jesus
that do not make rational or scientific sense. The true faith of
Christians must be with truth not with religion.
You see, and as demonstrated in our booklet "Of Truth",
there are too many of his recorded statements that are scientifically
and logically sound. That cannot be ignored. If we cannot see this
reality today how could He, if he was just a primitive carpenter
(or, as some persist, did not exist at all) have possibly revealed
these truths 2000 years ago?
Yes God is truth! Truth is the way (the only logical and natural
way) to life's fulfillment; fulfillment of life cannot be achieved
by following any other path! Promiscuity does weaken and destroy
the marriage bond and those who do not take their union seriously
do destroy the security of their children when children most need
it! There is no other God that can be put before truth if we are
to survive; Humanism is a cancerous philosophy of life designed
to destroy cultures and nations!
Humanism is the message of the little scroll that tastes sweet
but sickens humanity. Humanism is the major cause of unnecessary
hurt by everything from bush fires to terrorism, plague sickness
and war! If it was not for wrong-thinking people trying to save
trees, fewer trees and human lives would be lost to forest fires.
If it were not for false religious teachings by people wanting to
believe their petty preferences then people would not continue to
kill to support false beliefs and useless ambitions.
Perhaps the most glaring example of humanist crimes is the AIDS
epidemic now raging among the world's poorest people. AIDS has killed
millions and millions more will die, and some of these millions
of deaths may yet appear in our own countries - it only needs an
accidental (or deliberate) change to increase virus infection. Almost
all AIDS deaths can be accredited to humanist philosophy.
Christian philosophy did not set the conditions for AIDS spread
and Christian caring would have isolated early cases as with the
recent SARS 'scare'. But because AIDS was promoted as a homosexual
disease segregation was shown as discrimination and every 'cure'
just kept victims alive a little longer to help spread this "Ideology
protected" disease. If you think that AIDS could not have been
planned and deliberately created look up "AIDS" in the
"Discovering Humanity" files.
As we close our eyes more tightly our self-inflicted torments grow.
As we attack our torments with anger and bitterness we hurt ourselves
more. There will be new man-made diseases: new man-made wars: new
man-made nutritional disasters. BUT ONLY SO LONG AS WE KEEP OUR
EYES CLOSED TO LET THESE THINGS HAPPEN! We helped create the world
we live in and we can change it! Doing nothing is suicide by sloth?
WAKE UP WORLD! There's a war on and you had better start thinking
about it because intelligence is the only weapon you have with which
to defend yourself. (To be continued.)

P.S. Information about intellectual development is still needed.
There are many www sites but those I have looked at only concern
themselves with artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence
is more about programming than intelligence.
