If we published our water quality we would not have a South Coast Sewage problem today. It would have allowed us to keep a high benchmark on quality. Here is the info as presented on PM10 /P2.5 in high trafficked areas for we all can identify with poor working diesel vehicles fumigating our lungs daily with impunity.  The GOB must act for we are more than an economy.

Here is a SUMMARY in text form of the report.

    I understand “where you’re coming from” and I agree.

    What I have a problem with, is Bible thumping people trying to FORCE their beliefs down my throat, while creating the impression if I don’t heed their word, I’m lost and doomed.

    My take on it is, if you believe in God and the Bible, that’s your thing and I respect you. But, if I don’t believe in your beliefs…… respect my decision, similarly to how I respect yours.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses, for example, don’t celebrate Christmas, but they would invade the privacy of people who celebrate Christmas, by going to their houses on Christmas Day to preach to them it is wrong to celebrate it..…which is total disrespect.

    Then….. how about the Seventh Day Adventist who say it is wrong to work on sabbath Saturday, but would be angry if the bus, mini bus and route taxi are not available or late in arriving to take them to church. Are the drivers of these PSVs not working, which is contrary to SDA’s beliefs?

    Or…. how about the man who gets up one morning to play “oldie goldies” or reggae, for example, and the Christians call the police to complain that his loud music is disturbing their peace. But they expect to set up “loud speakers” in the district to preach and play “spirituals” aloud and entire night, because they believe as long as they are preaching the “word of God,” no one has the RIGHT to COMPLAIN about the noise.

    What I also realise about these so called religious enthusiast is that they expect people to readily accept their doctrines….. WITHOUT QUESTION. As soon as you ask for explanations of contradictions in the Bible or challenge their beliefs…. rather than try to explain……. they become ANGRY and HOSTILE.

    Hmmmmm………

    So…….. in other words, the BLP will be responsible for our death…. before the rapture comes, because they are responsible for allowing sewage in the Graeme Hall Swamp?????

    SURELY YOU MEAN “APPARENT” CONTRADICTIONS

    RE rather than try to explain…
    HOW DO YOU BEGIN TO EXPLAIN A BIBLICAL MYSTERY TO A BIBLE ILLITERATE?

    THE BIBLE TEACHES IN 1 JOHN 5 THAT FOLK “KNOW” AFTER AND NOT BEFORE THEY BELIEVE.

    AND YES…….I CANNOT FULLY EXPLAIN THAT THOUGHT………YOU HAVE TO EXPERIENCE

    THE FALLACY IN AC’S SILLY ARGUMENT IS THAT IF WE ARE ALL DEAD PRIOR TO THE RAPTURE because the BLP are responsible for allowing sewage in the Graeme Hall Swamp THEN NO ONE IN BARBADOS WILL BE RAPTURED

    Interesting!!!

    Perhaps similarly to how you begin to explain a medical mystery to a first year medical student….. who, at that point in his life, is a medical illiterate.

    But teacher needs to understand the mystery in the first place – in order to explain it to the first year student.

    ….Or he can just tell them that ‘all the experts believe it …so stop asking questions…’

    YOU HAVE ANSWERED MY QUESTION
    THE ANSWER IS YOU CANT

    A FIRST YEAR MEDICAL STUDENT IS NOT A TOTAL MEDICAL ILLITERATE LIKE THE COMMON BU BIBLE ILLITERATE………BECAUSE HE HAS GONE THROUGH YEARS OF STUDY TO PREPARE HIM FOR MEDICAL SCHOOL.
    NOTE THE WORD STUDY

    FIRST YEAR MEDICAL STUDENTS ARE PRESENTED WITH LESSONS IN WHAT ARE CALLED THE BASIC SCIENCES
    HE IS NOT PRESENTED WITH ANY MEDICAL MYSTERIES

    BY THE TIME A STUDENT COMES TO DIAGNOSE HE HAS A GOOD BASIS TO DO THIS

    YOU MIGHT WONDER HOW I KNOW THIS
    I WAS A MEDICAL STUDENT AND I HAVE TAUGHT MEDICAL STUDENTS

    NOW THE BIBLE LISTS SEVEN MYSTERIES

    FIRST YOU NEED TO DEFINE THE TERM MYSTERY AS USED BY PAUL
    CHECK YOUR STRONGS OR OTHER GREEK LEXICON

    SECOND YOU NEED TO KNOW SOME BIBLE TO UNDERSTAND THESE PORTIONS OF THE BIBLE JUST AS A MEDICAL STUDENT MUST KNOW THE BASIC MEDICAL SCIENCES TO FIGURE OUT A SIMPLE THING SUCH AS A NOSE BLEED

    I HOPE THAT I HAVE CLARIFIED THIS A BIT AND THAT YOU INDEED FOUND IT INTERESTING

    I HOPE THAT YOU CAN SEE THAT I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT

    THE SEVEN MYSTERIES OF THE NEW TESTAMENT ARE

    The Mystery of Incarnation (1 Timothy 3:16) 16: And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
    The Mystery of the Indwelling Christ (Colossians 1:27) 27: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
    The Mystery of the Body of Christ (Ephesians 5:31-32) 31: For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
    32: This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
    The Mystery of Israel’s Blindness (Romans 11:25) 25: For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.
    The Mystery of the Rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51-53) 51: Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
    52: In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
    53: For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
    The Mystery of the Antichrist (2 Thessalonians 2:7) 7: For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
    The Mystery of Babylon the Great (Revelation 17:5) 5: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

    STINKING IS THE MOST ACCURATE WORD IN THE OPINION ABOVE
    YOU ARE INDEED STINKING

    ALL STUDENTS FROM PRIMARY SCHOOL AND EVEN GRADUATE STUDENTS THE WORLD OVER SEEK AND BELIEVE WHAT THEY LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS IN THAT AREA,

    THAT IS HOW EVERY ONE BEGINS TO ATTAIN KNOWLEDGE

    IF I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT LIVERS……..I MIGHT READ WHAT DAME SHEILA SHERLOCK WROTE THEREON

    IF I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT SURGERY OR ANATOMY I MIGHT CONSULT SIR HAROLD ELLIS

    IF I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT CHEMICAL PATHOLOGY I MIGHT READ ZILVA AND PANNALL

    IF I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT GROSS PATHOLOGY I MIGHT READ ROBBINS OR RUBINS

    WHEN I WANT TO TEACH A PASSAGE OF THE WORD I LOVE TO READ THE EXEGESES OF THE RENOWNED TEACHERS AND COMPARE WHAT THEY SAY.

    I HAVE LEARNED A LOT THEREFROM

    WHY NOT GOOGLE “RAPTURE” AND SEE WHAT YOU FIND
    TRY READING JOHN 14:1-3 AND COMPARE IT WITH 1 COR 15:51-54 AND I THES 4:14-18

    BACK TO FIRST YEAR MEDICAL STUDENTS AND MYSTERIES

    IN 2011 I HAD A CHINESE JAMAICAN IN MY BIOCHEMISTRY CLASS WHO HAD BEEN A NURSE IN THE USA

    ONE DAY SHE TOLD THE STORY OF AN ALCOHOLIC THAT SHE HAD AS A PATIENT WHO COLLAPSED AFTER HE WAS TAKEN OFF HIS ALCOHOL ON ADMISSION TO HOSPITAL

    SHE ASKED WHY THIS SHOULD BE SO.

    THIS “MYSTERY” WAS RESOLVED WHEN IT WAS EXPLAINED THAT THE ALCOHOLIC WAS DERIVING THE ACETYLCOA TO DRIVE HIS KREBS CYCLE—–THE BODY’S MAIN ENGINE FOR GENERATING THE BODY’S ENERGY CURRENCY CALLED ATP.

    YOU SEE MOST “MEDICAL MYSTERIES” ARE RESOLVED BY HAVING PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE.

    IN LIKE MANNER, THE 7 NEW TESTAMENT BIBLICAL MYSTERIES WERE MYSTERIES BECAUSE THERE WAS NO INFORMATION ABOUT THESE AREAS OF THEOLOGY PRESENTED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. PAUL’S READERS HAD A FAIRLY GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF THE OLD TESTAMENT. CERTAINLY, THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO.

    BELIEVE on the name of the Son of God

    AND 60 TIMES IN I JOHN WRITTEN TO BELIEVERS HE USES THE WORD “KNOW”

    THEN LOOK AT I JOHN 5:20

    And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

    NOTE WHO HAS COME

    WE BELIEVE ALL KINDS OF INCONSEQUENTIAL THINGS ………E.G STUFF ABOUT TRUMP

    IT WOULD HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND MUCH MORE………….EVEN IF NOT EVERYTHING
