Protect the Arctic Ocean to Help Prevent Impending Global Disaster

For Immediate Release from Parvati.org

The largest ecological and humanitarian crisis in history is at our doorstep. According to Philip Alston, the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, hundreds of millions face impoverishment, widespread displacement and hunger, with the most severe impact in poor countries and regions that have contributed the least to the crisis. The sheer scale of the impending disaster calls us to step out of our status quo mindset and meet the needs of the moment with compassion, courage and forward thinking. MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, is an immediate and effective response, one the whole world needs now more than ever.  

MAPS establishes all ocean waters north of the Arctic Circle as an international marine protected area free from natural resource exploitation, commercialization and militarization, promoting a peaceful and healthy Arctic Ocean ecosystem for the benefit of the entire world. The Arctic Ocean ice is our planet’s air conditioning system. Its ice balances weather patterns globally so that we have the food and resources we need to survive. But it is melting fast. With 75% less summer ice than just half a century ago, and the open ocean absorbing 90% of the sun’s rays, parts of the Arctic Ocean are now 4C/7F too hot.  

The implications of such dramatic changes are enormous. A melted Arctic Ocean cannot maintain the Earth’s climate equilibrium, resulting in more frequent and intense weather events, threatened food production and water supply, poverty, disease, more climate refugees and ever-increasing suffering. Yet, instead of recognizing the loss of the Arctic sea ice as the global emergency that it is, corporations and governments are lining up to take advantage of the newly open waters. 

Led by its founder and CEO, the award-winning musician, author and activist Parvati, the all-volunteer international non-profit organization Parvati.org created the international Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) Treaty to protect this key and vulnerable region by transforming it into the world’s largest preservation area. The MAPS Treaty has been translated into all official UN languages, provided to all 193 UN member states, and shared with officials at major UN conferences since 2015. MAPS stops Arctic exploitation while compelling a global shift to renewables, protecting remaining sea ice from destruction and befoulment caused by commercial and military traffic. With signatures from 99 countries, the MAPS Treaty enters into force, protecting all life on Earth for generations to come. It has already been signed by Samoa and the Cook Islands.  

At this pivotal moment in human history, we no longer have time for anything but bold and decisive action to protect our shared future. That’s why Parvati.org is now finalizing an innovative global education strategy (GES) that harnesses the exponential power of modern media to cool minds, lighten footprints, and awaken an inevitable call for MAPS. Everyone has the right to know a healthy world is possible, so they can put pressure on their leaders to sign the MAPS Treaty immediately. 

“There is no safe place on Earth if the vulnerable Arctic Ocean is exploited,” says Parvati. “We must speak up now for our common good and call for immediate protection of the Arctic sea ice, our planet’s air conditioner. The ice isn’t waiting, and neither can we.” 

Citizens of all nations are urged to sign and share the MAPS petition at https://parvati.org, and to call on their world leaders to sign the MAPS Treaty.

BACKGROUNDER: FAQ 

 

Who is Parvati.org? 
– Parvati.org is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to a healthy planet. 
– We are volunteers from around the world. 
– We are committed to the immediate realization of the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) to protect all life. 
– Our long-term vision is to create a Global Peace Sanctuary, to address poverty and hunger around the world.  
 
Who founded Parvati.org? 
– Parvati.org was founded in 2014 by the Canadian musician, author and activist Parvati, who gave the northernmost musical performance ever to raise awareness of the melting polar ice.  
 
What is MAPS? 
– MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, declares the entire Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle an ocean preserve. 
– It stops all activity in the Arctic Ocean that harms this vulnerable ecosystem. 
– MAPS is the largest ocean preserve in history, representing approximately 3% of the world’s oceans. This fits naturally with the United Nations’ commitment to protect 10% of our oceans by 2020.  
– Leading biologists call for us to protect 50% of the entire planet immediately to prevent mass extinction. 
– MAPS is not an end goal, but a baseline necessity.  
 
What does MAPS do? 
– By making Arctic seabed oil and gas unavailable for extraction and exploitation, MAPS will accelerate a global shift from fossil fuels to renewable energies. 
– As countries come together to sign the Treaty, our world moves from short-term individual gain to long-term collective good.  
– MAPS is practical. It’s effective. And it’s immediately achievable.  
 
Why do we need MAPS? 
– The Arctic Ocean ice is our planet’s air conditioning system. It balances weather patterns globally so that we have the food and resources we need to survive.  
– The white ice reflects 50% of the sun’s rays back into the atmosphere. But it is melting fast. – There is now 75% less summer ice in the Arctic Ocean than there was 50 years ago. The open ocean absorbs 90% of the sun’s rays, and today parts of the Arctic Ocean are now 4º C too hot. 
– The Arctic Ocean is under threat as never before by corporations and governments that seek to profit from the unprecedented loss of ice.  
-We are inherently and inescapably interconnected. What happens in the Arctic Ocean affects all life on Earth. We must act now to protect it. 
 
Why MAPS now? 
– All life on Earth depends on healthy, robust sea ice in the Arctic Ocean. But it’s in more danger than ever.  
– As the ice melts at a staggering rate, businesses and governments are moving to take advantage of the Arctic Ocean’s resources for short-term gain for a few, instead of protecting this vulnerable, climate-regulating region for the benefit of all. This is a deadly error.  
We must realize MAPS now to lead the way to a healthy and safe future for all.  
 
How is MAPS realized? 
– MAPS is being realized through the MAPS Treaty, an addendum to the UN Law of the Sea. 
Under MAPS, the entire Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle will become an international peace park, free from exploitation of all kinds. 
-The MAPS Treaty enters into force with the signatures of 99 world leaders, including those of the Arctic nations.  
-Two nations to date have signed the MAPS Treaty and more signatures are expected soon. 
 
Why did a nonprofit organization draft an international treaty? 
– It needed to be done. We no longer live in an era when we have the luxury to consider one isolated region as if it were separate from the whole.   
– Parvati.org has no political or religious affiliation and no financial interests in MAPS. Our interest is humanitarian. 
– We know that all life everywhere has the fundamental right to be free from suffering, misery and lack.  
 
Is Parvati.org supporting efforts for peace and sustainability, other than MAPS? 
– Our sole focus at this time is MAPS because of its urgent role in protecting all life everywhere. It is the most powerful way to make a difference in the entire world. 
– Hunger, natural disasters and mass migration are all factors in violent conflict. MAPS mitigates them all. 
– Once MAPS is realized, we will broaden our focus to GPS: Global Peace Sanctuary. 
 
Do you have any political affiliation? 
– Parvati.org takes no political stance. The planet must be a healthy and safe home for all living creatures equally.

    2PETER 3 TEACHES IN VERSE 5
    For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
    CLEARLY THIS CANNOT BE LOGICALLY REFUTED – THE EARTH WAS CREATED

    2 PETER 3 TEACHES IN VERSE 6
    6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
    THIS IS CORROBORATED BY Genesis 7:11
    In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. Genesis 7:11

    It can not be disputed that there was a flood.All ancient civilizations have a flood story of some sort.

    For sometime now progressive thinkers have said that the two greatest threats to our region are the continued ignoring of our environment and crime.
    We have opted to occupy ourselves with worn facts and excursions into intellectual fantasy.
    Nothing that Chomsky has said attracts the thinking of the jokers who manage our economies.
    It’s therefore refreshing to read David quoting Chomsky, when all of his writings to date have been the completely opposite to what Chomsky has provided.

    NASA STUDY: MASS GAINS OF ANTARCTIC ICE SHEET GREATER THAN LOSSES

    A new NASA study says that Antarctica is overall accumulating ice. Still, areas of the continent, like the Antarctic Peninsula photographed above, have increased their mass loss in the last decades.

    Map showing the rates of mass changes from ICESat 2003-2008 over Antarctica. Sums are for all of Antarctica: East Antarctica (EA, 2-17); interior West Antarctica (WA2, 1, 18, 19, and 23); coastal West Antarctica (WA1, 20-21); and the Antarctic Peninsula (24-27). A gigaton (Gt) corresponds to a billion metric tons, or 1.1 billion U.S. tons.

    A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.

    The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice.

    According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008….

    “We’re essentially in agreement with other studies that show an increase in ice discharge in the Antarctic Peninsula and the Thwaites and Pine Island region of West Antarctica,” said Jay Zwally, a glaciologist with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and lead author of the study, which was published on Oct. 30 in the Journal of Glaciology. “Our main disagreement is for East Antarctica and the interior of West Antarctica – there, we see an ice gain that exceeds the losses in the other areas.” Zwally added that his team “measured small height changes over large areas, as well as the large changes observed over smaller areas.”

    This writer knows Noam Chomsky. He is not a ‘progressive’ and would be disappointed that you would so call him.

    Certainly, he would be even more disappointed that you would seek to separate his thinking from anybody in a vain attempt to make a philosophical non-point.

    For Noam believes that his work should be accessible to everybody and should never be a device to divide those who may find something in it helpful in trying to explain lived realities.

    A sensible comment. This is not the first time that there has been climate change on this planet on a geological time-frame. Who can say whether or not this is a blimp in the climate or a normal change? No one knows for sure. Obviously, the use of oil and the emittance of green-house gases cannot be denied. The extent of climate change remains to be seen. According to the authorities earth is due for another ice age, What about plate-tectonics and its effect on climate change ? Super computers are used to analyze the many variables that affect climate. Super computers have their limitations; they maybe cutting edge to us but twenty years from now, people will wonder at how obsolete the equipment was. Only when quantum computing is an every day occurrence ,will it be possible to input the multitude of variables needed to get a solid answer.

    In our discussions of origins, we must either accept by faith the speculations of man or the revelation of God. It is however noteworthy, as pointed out above that the discoveries of man, has contributed immensely to an understanding of the fact of creation at the sub-molecular level. For example, Hebrews 11:3 after stating that we understand by faith that the worlds came into being simply by the word of God, asserts plainly and simply that “things which are seen [visible things] were [are] not made of things which do appear [or that can be readily seen].” This is common knowledge that has been explained by scientists in the last century by kinetic theory and the various discoveries of the components of the structure of the atom. We can therefore scientifically prove that this verse is absolutely true. The created things that we can see are all composed of constituents that we cannot see-things that do not exist. The tangible things on terra firma and beyond are created out of nothing-ex nihilo- exactly as the Bible states in Genesis 1:1, 21, and 27, where we have described respectively, the creation of something from nothing, the creation of life, and the creation of human life. This verse corroborates Genesis 1:1 in teaching that the creation was made out of nothing. Hebrews 11:3 thus gives us both a macroscopic and a sub microscopic view of creation. This is now common knowledge in the scientific world, and information that is easy to understand, even by High School kids.

    Romans 1:20 is a corroboration of Hebrews 11:3. Whereas Hebrews 11:3 teaches that the things that we can see are made from things that we cannot see, Romans 1:20 teaches that the invisible things or the sub-microscopic things of the creation that we can not see are clearly manifested by the macroscopic things that we can see. Furthermore, Paul asserts that this is an indication of the power of God. Paul is saying that it takes great power to enable the submicroscopic invisible components of the things that God has created to become condensed into macroscopic things that we can see, feel, taste etc. Scientists know that great power or kinetic energy is involved, because when chemicals react they commonly give of energy in the form of heat. Honest scientists know that this verse is true. We don’t need faith to believe these two Scripture verses. The truth of these verses can be reproduced in laboratories any and every day. God has revealed theses truths to us in the last 70 years or so. The scientific scriptures are all now established facts. This certainly facilitates our accepting by faith the rest of Scriptures. If we can see the truths in these Scriptures, then what is so hard to believe about the rest of the Bible? A God that can condense the invisible into the visible as we understand it according to kinetic theory, and relevant aspects of Physical Chemistry, can in my view, easily perform with the order, power, progress and perfection as described in Genesis 1-2. Once one grasps the deep truths of Hebrews 11:3 and Romans 1:20, Genesis 1:1 is obviously fact!
    Besides Hebrews 11:3, 2 Peter 3:10 also contributes significantly to the discussion on the creation of the world at the sub-molecular level. In 2 Peter 3:10 Peter tells us that the heavens will pass away and be burned up. This is a most remarkable and relevant passage especially for this present hour, because it has silenced a lot of the more honest scoffers. It also contributes to our understanding of creation, in the light of our current scientific knowledge. This verse once occasioned much laughter and mockery as the question was posed, “How can the world burn when most of the world is water.” It then seemed inconceivable to the scoffers that water could burn. That criticism is now out of vogue with the discovery that water is composed of two very inflammable gases which burn most readily.

    Based on the theory of the eternity of matter–a premise on which much of science was based until about 70 years ago, with the work on atomic theory by Bohr, Rutherford, Pauling et al-the critics opined that this passage could not be fulfilled since matter was indestructible and eternal. Whereas once the critics ridiculed this passage and humble sincere Bible scholars who had no answer of explanation, had to be quiet; now, believers have had the last laugh. Not only do we know that it can happen, we also know how it can happen. In verse 7 we are told that the earth as it exists has been stored up for fire and literally with fire; thus signifying that there are resident forces present in the world which could destroy it. These concepts are known from experiments on chemical bonding- the glue that keeps matter together, and the discovery that most chemical reactions are exothermic, that is they give off heat, proves the claims of this verse. The effects of the release of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and in experiments in the dessert in New Mexico, demonstrated conclusively how accurate a scientific statement this verse is, and how simply it was put 2000 years ago. It is just that man has finally now caught up with his Physical Chemistry homework!

    In 2 Peter 3:10 we must also note that the word “noise” (Greek rhoizedon) is the word used for the swish of an arrow, the rush of wings, the splash of water, the hiss of a serpent. This is a word from classical Greek and used by the poets such that the sound of the word carries its own meaning. This word is used in the New Testament nowhere else and this specific sound implied is the best description of an exothermic chemical reaction and that of the sound of atomic explosion. Next it is worthy of note the fact that the elements will be dissolved or melt or untied with fervent heat. The word “elements” refers to basic material, atoms, the building blocks of the universe. This word is used of putting building blocks in a row or series, or of the first steps of a child. It is that which is primary or foundational, that out of which a thing is made. “Fervent heat” is energy. These descriptive words make us think of an atomic explosion. Whereas we are not saying that atomic fission or atomic bombs is the way in which God will destroy the world that is, we are saying that God has revealed to us that this passage makes good sense and has simultaneously silenced the critics. We can see both a logical and scientific way in which the world that is, can be destroyed. This verse is simultaneously revealing how the world must have been made at the sub-molecular level. It was done simply by the opposite to what will occur at it’s destruction!

    The word used for “melt” or “dissolve” in 2 Peter 3:10 to describe the future demolition of the elements is the Greek luo. This word has also been translated “loose” or “untie”. It basically describes the breaking of chemical bonds. If God can untie chemical bonds in the eschaton, is it too difficult to conceive that he tied them initially at the creation? We must see that whereas, the Scriptures does not claim to be a Science text, it makes very simple, but very accurate scientific statements in a very matter of fact way. This is because these issues are very infinitesimal to God, even though it took man several millennia to unravel, and even though he has not yet fully understood all the details.

    We cannot state with certainty that David has never quoted Chomsky or Bakunin or Russell or anybody else. We were surprised that you could.

    Chomsky himself, would not want the class or intellectual division which your statement conjectured to be a barrier to entry by David or anybody else.

    We generally think that the litmus test you seem to erect to judge whether this or that person is progressive enough or adheres to the mandates of what you call ‘progressive’ is a standard from a bygone era. This writer certainly does not recognize that anybody has the authority to enforce such on us.

    While we totally agree that the duopoly everywhere is ‘decadent’, that our leaderships are backward is inescapable. However, we have a duty to find people where they are especially a man who has never refused you an opportunity to publish your most radical ideas.

    Thank you very much for your submission. I found it insightful.
    I do share your approach to reconciling the scriptures with Modern Science. The idea first struck me on Ash Wednesday several years ago. The priest said to us :” Dust thou art and to dust though shall return.” Obviously a portion of scripture.
    Armed with the scientific knowledge that matter ,made up of atoms, is not destroyed and that in this modern age no man has seen an atom but believes it exists, I came to the conclusion that the writer/translator used dust/ash as the most appropriate metaphor for atomic particles.

    Climatic data from records only go back about two centuries. Extrapolation of temperature records from ice-core samples taken from Antarctica do give a fairly accurate depiction of past climactic conditions through the ages. These ice-core data obviously only go back as far as the time Antarctica became ice-bound. Other factors such as pollen can also be analyzed to give an indication of what the temperature was like. The analyses depend on the difference in isotopic ratios of for example carbon and on the magnetic footprint of chemical elements ( a result of the shifting of magnetic pole on earth over time.).found in rocks and plants. The results are approximations, in other words there is an element of probability with these results. Then, there are the approximations made in the model-system in computing the different calculations to be made. Inherently there are errors made which makes it difficult to have hard and fast rules or results.

  • THE BIGGEST LIE EVER TOLD – MAN-MADE GLOBAL WARMING

    March 29, 2019 Posted by Dr. Timothy Ball & Tom Harris

    Carbon Dioxide Only Causes Climate Change in UN IPCC Climate Models

    Today’s climate change is well within the range of natural climate variability through Earth’s 4.5 billion-year history. In fact, it is within the range of the climate change of the last 10,000 years, a period known as the Holocene, 95% of which was warmer than today. Indeed, it is now cooler than the Holocene Optimum, which spanned a period from about 9,000 to 5,000 years ago. The Optimum was named at a time when warming was understood to be a good thing in contrast to the miserable cold times that periodically cripple mankind. A small group fooled the world into believing that warming is bad and that today’s weather is warmer than ever before, all caused by the human addition of a relatively trivial amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere. IT IS THE BIGGEST LIE EVER TOLD, AND THAT REASON ALONE CAUSED MANY TO BELIEVE.

    The lie began with the assumption that an increase in CO2 would cause an increase in temperature. In the historical record, temperature increases before CO2, so the benign gas is not causing temperature rise. Indeed, it cannot cause global warming or climate change. The only place where a CO2 increase causes a temperature increase is in the computer models promoted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This is the main reason why the model predictions are always wrong. HOWEVER, THE OBJECTIVE OF A BIG LIE IS TO OVERRIDE THE TRUTH FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. Here are the original definition and objective of the big lie, quoting from Adolf Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels:

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic, and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the state to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state.”
    The comments relate to a big lie in a nation-state, but it, like the big lie about climate, was intended to achieve global status. Goebbels applied the big lie of Nazism with its ultimate goal of a Third Reich to rule the world for a thousand years.

    THE UN CREATED THE BIG LIE OF GLOBAL WARMING BECAUSE IT IDENTIFIED THE ENEMY—INDUSTRY AND CAPITALISM—WHILE THREATENING THE WORLD WITH A POTENTIAL GLOBAL DISASTER. THIS SUPPOSED THREAT EXCEEDED THE ABILITY OF ANY INDIVIDUAL NATION-STATE TO ‘SOLVE,’ AND THAT DICTATED THE NEED FOR A WORLD GOVERNMENT. THIS IS WHY THE HUMAN-CAUSED GLOBAL WARMING LIE WAS CREATED BY AND PERPETUATED THROUGH THE UN.

    Sure. In business in preparing projected balance sheets as well as income and sale data. You want to advance the point that since some decisions are based on probability, then one should consider the climate change features in the above article as a given factor. The fact remains that in probability you have minus or plus one. The probability of either a minus one or a plus one occurring is about fifty percent

    A scanning tunneling microscope (STM) is an instrument for imaging surfaces at the atomic level. Its development in 1981 earned its inventors, Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer (at IBM Zürich), the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1986.

    Before scientists could build at the atomic scale they needed a tool to help them observe it. Before the 1980’s there were no instruments or microscopes that could image the atomic scale.
    In 1981 the Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) was invented by Gerd Binning and Heinrich Rohrer at IBM; the pair later received the 1986 Nobel Prize in physics for this accomplishment. The STM has ultra-high resolution and can image single atoms. This instrument allowed scientists to view a world that they could not view before: the world of the nanoscale. Many people believe that the invention of the STM was the birth of nanoscience.

    The UK’s superSTEM facility got a new electron microscope with unprecedented resolution.

    A new electron microscope unveiled at the UK’s national SuperST​EM facility images objects at an unprecedented resolution, right down to the individual atoms.

  • IT’S ABOUT THE MONEY, NOT THE CLIMATE

    Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), the Irish poet and dramatist, wrote “Pray don’t talk to me about the weather. Whenever people talk to me about the weather, I always feel quite certain that they mean something else.”

    THE LIES THAT GOVERNMENTS, THE UNITED NATIONS, AND THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND TELL ABOUT THE CLIMATE ARE ABOUT THE MONEY THEY CAN EXTRACT FROM CITIZENS WHO MUST BE KEPT FRIGHTENED ENOUGH TO PAY TAXES ON THEIR USE OF ENERGY.

    These days, when some world leader or politician speaks of the climate—the weather is what is happening right now wherever you are—they are not talking about sunshine or rain. THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT A DEVILISHLY OBSCENE WAY OF RAISING MONEY.

    IF, A GOVERNMENT CAN TAX THE USE OF ENERGY, IT STANDS TO MAKE A LOT OF MONEY. That is why carbon taxes have been introduced in some nations and why the nearly useless “clean energy” options of wind and solar have been introduced even though they both require the backup of traditional coal, natural gas and nuclear energy plants because they cannot produce electricity if the wind isn’t blowing and the sun is obscured by clouds.

    Fortunately, every effort to introduce a carbon tax has been defeated by the U.S. Congress, but that it has shelled out billions for “climate research” over the years.

    THE NEED OF GOVERNMENTS TO FRIGHTEN THEIR CITIZENS ABOUT THE CLIMATE IN ORDER TO RAISE MONEY IS INTERNATIONAL IN SCOPE.

    IN LATE JULY, REUTERS REPORTED THAT CHRISTINE LAGARDE, THE CHAIR OF THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, (IMF) OPINED IN HER NEW BOOK THAT “ENERGY TAXES IN MUCH OF THE WORLD ARE FAR BELOW WHAT THEY SHOULD BE TO REFLECT THE HARMFUL ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH IMPACT OF FOSSIL FUELS USE.”

    Please pay no attention to the billions of dollars that coal, oil and natural gas already generate for the nations in which they are found. Nations such as India and China are building COAL-FIRED PLANTS as fast as possible to provide the electricity every modern nation needs to expand its economy, provide more employment, and improve their citizen’s lives in every way imaginable.

    Reuters reported, “the IMF laid out exactly what it views as appropriate taxes on coal, natural gas, gasoline, and diesel in 156 countries to factor in the fuel’s overall costs, which include carbon dioxide emissions, air pollution, congestion and traffic accidents.” THE PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT THE COSTS CITED ARE BOGUS.

    THERE IS NO “GLOBAL WARMING” AND THE CLIMATE IS DETERMINED BY THE SUN, THE OCEANS, CLOUDS, AND VOLCANIC ACTIVITY. NOTHING ANY GOVERNMENT DOES, HERE AND WORLDWIDE, HAS ANY IMPACT ON IT, BUT IF NATIONS CAN DEMONIZE THE USE OF ENERGY AND TAX THE CO2 IT PRODUCES, THEY CAN GENERATE MORE MONEY TO SPEND AND WASTE.

    It’s good to know others are aware that there is much more than one creation and ending (aka Armageddon) story which can be found in all ‘human cultures’ spread across the entire ‘habitable’ planet and not just on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates.

    One could just picture Him weeping because in the day that he created man in the Garden of Eden he gave mankind their Sovereignty of Free Agency with the knowledge that they would learn to choose Good over Evil. As our God He does not insist that, we follow his Plan of Happiness and they are many that Choose otherwise, to only believe their eyes… 2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

    You truly have to weep for those who Choose Darkness over the Light because their End is Misery, it is very sad that they could Choose to lose their Immortal Souls.

    The church began 50 days after Jesus’ resurrection (c. A.D. 30). Jesus had promised that He would build His church (Matthew 16:18), and with the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4), the church—ekklesia (the “called-out assembly”)—officially began. Three thousand people responded to Peter’s sermon that day and chose to follow Christ.

    The initial converts to Christianity were Jews or proselytes to Judaism, and the church was centered in Jerusalem. Because of this, Christianity was seen at first as a Jewish sect, akin to the Pharisees, the Sadducees, or the Essenes. However, what the apostles preached was radically different from what other Jewish groups were teaching. Jesus was the Jewish Messiah (the anointed King) who had come to fulfill the Law (Matthew 5:17) and institute a new covenant based on His death (Mark 14:24). This message, with its charge that they had killed their own Messiah, infuriated many Jewish leaders, and some, like Saul of Tarsus, took action to stamp out “the Way” (Acts 9:1-2).

    It is quite proper to say that Christianity has its roots in Judaism. The Old Testament laid the groundwork for the New, and it is impossible to fully understand Christianity without a working knowledge of the Old Testament (see the books of Matthew and Hebrews). The Old Testament explains the necessity of a Messiah, contains the history of the Messiah’s people, and predicts the Messiah’s coming. The New Testament, then, is all about the coming of Messiah and His work to save us from sin. In His life, Jesus fulfilled over 300 specific prophecies, proving that He was the One the Old Testament had anticipated.

    History of Christianity – The Growth of the Early Church
    Not long after Pentecost, the doors to the church were opened to non-Jews. The evangelist Philip preached to the Samaritans (Acts 8:5), and many of them believed in Christ. The apostle Peter preached to the Gentile household of Cornelius (Acts 10), and they, too, received the Holy Spirit. The apostle Paul (the former persecutor of the church) spread the gospel all over the Greco-Roman world, reaching as far as Rome itself (Acts 28:16) and possibly all the way to Spain.

    By A.D. 70, the year Jerusalem was destroyed, most of the books of the New Testament had been completed and were circulating among the churches. For the next 240 years, Christians were persecuted by Rome—sometimes at random, sometimes by government edict.

    In the 2nd and 3rd centuries, the church leadership became more and more hierarchical as numbers increased. Several heresies were exposed and refuted during this time, and the New Testament canon was agreed upon. Persecution continued to intensify.

    History of Christianity – The Rise of the Roman Church
    In A.D. 312, the Roman Emperor Constantine claimed to have had a conversion experience. About 70 years later, during the reign of Theodosius, Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire. Bishops were given places of honor in the government, and by A.D. 400, the terms “Roman” and “Christian” were virtually synonymous.

    After Constantine, then, Christians were no longer persecuted. In time, it was the pagans who came under persecution unless they “converted” to Christianity. Such forced conversions led to many people entering the church without a true change of heart. The pagans brought with them their idols and the practices they were accustomed to, and the church changed; icons, elaborate architecture, pilgrimages, and the veneration of saints were added to the simplicity of early church worship. About this same time, some Christians retreated from Rome, choosing to live in isolation as monks, and infant baptism was introduced as a means of washing away original sin.

    Through the next centuries, various church councils were held in an attempt to determine the church’s official doctrine, to censure clerical abuses, and to make peace between warring factions. As the Roman Empire grew weaker, the church became more powerful, and many disagreements broke out between the churches in the West and those in the East. The Western (Latin) church, based in Rome, claimed apostolic authority over all other churches. The bishop of Rome had even begun calling himself the “Pope” (the Father). This did not sit well with the Eastern (Greek) church, based in Constantinople. Theological, political, procedural, and linguistic divides all contributed to the Great Schism in 1054, in which the Roman Catholic (“Universal”) Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church excommunicated each other and broke all ties.

    History of Christianity – The Middle Ages
    During the Middle Ages in Europe, the Roman Catholic Church continued to hold power, with the popes claiming authority over all levels of life and living as kings. Corruption and greed in the church leadership was commonplace. From 1095 to 1204 the popes endorsed a series of bloody and expensive crusades in an effort to repel Muslim advances and liberate Jerusalem.

    History of Christianity – The Reformation
    Through the years, several individuals had tried to call attention to the theological, political, and human rights abuses of the Roman Church. All had been silenced in one way or another. But in 1517, a German monk named Martin Luther took a stand against the church, and everyone heard. With Luther came the Protestant Reformation, and the Middle Ages were brought to a close.

    The Reformers, including Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli, differed in many finer points of theology, but they were consistent in their emphasis on the Bible’s supreme authority over church tradition and the fact that sinners are saved by grace through faith alone apart from works (Ephesians 2:8-9).

    Although Catholicism made a comeback in Europe, and a series of wars between Protestants and Catholics ensued, the Reformation had successfully dismantled the power of the Roman Catholic Church and helped open the door to the modern age.

    History of Christianity – The Age of Missions
    From 1790 to 1900, the church showed an unprecedented interest in missionary work. Colonization had opened eyes to the need for missions, and industrialization had provided people with the financial ability to fund the missionaries. Missionaries went around the world preaching the gospel, and churches were established throughout the world.

    History of Christianity – The Modern Church
    Today, the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church have taken steps to mend their broken relationship, as have Catholics and Lutherans. The evangelical church is strongly independent and rooted firmly in Reformed theology. The church has also seen the rise of Pentecostalism, the charismatic movement, ecumenicalism, and various cults.

    History of Christianity – What We Learn from Our History
    If we learn nothing else from church history, we should at least recognize the importance of letting “the word of Christ dwell in [us] richly” (Colossians 3:16). Each of us is responsible to know what the Scripture says and to live by it. When the church forgets what the Bible teaches and ignores what Jesus taught, chaos reigns.

    There are many churches today, but only one gospel. It is “the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints” (Jude 3). May we be careful to preserve that faith and pass it on without alteration, and the Lord will continue to fulfill His promise to build His church.

  • The Gospel of Christ was from the earliest times, one of the sacred ordinances of Christ is the partaking of the sacrament and yet in genesis we read that Genesis 14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

    Therefore, we see here that Melchizedek was Practicing the Gospel of Christ as seen here in the first Book of the Bible. How can it be otherwise? The Creator would have always had His Gospel taught. The inhabitants of the earth just lived under different Covenants at different times.

    The time that the Israelite’s entered the Promised Land the Covenant they lived under was that they had to be righteous to a man or All would Suffer. The Covenant that Christ introduced was a Different Covenant called the New and Everlasting Covenant. Every time it was Re-introduced, it is called the New and Everlasting Covenant.

    The Priesthood of God has Always Existed, Abraham received it and Moses received it from Jethro his Father in law. The Acknowledgement that Christ is our Saviour (Jehovah/the Creator) was always taught to mankind.

    After Christ was Incarnated on the Earth his followers name was called Christians indeed it can be said that all followers of the Creator can be called Christians because they follow Christ!

    Why don’t you stop maligning Poor Cain your grand-god-father?
    According to the fable Cain was the first hardworking cultivator of crops for domestic consumption (vegetarian); whereas his brother Abel was a sheep farmer (meat eater).

    So which kind of farming you think should have found greater favour with your temperamental Yahweh?

    Cain did nothing to incur the judgment of your one-sided Yahweh who should have accepted the offerings from both brothers.

    Then there would be no Jewish copying of the story of Romulus and Remus.

    Can’t you see that these tales are just cryptic descriptions of astrological events which prevailed during age the myths were written or copied?

    Like the young Sun rising in the constellation of Aries with the lamb (young ram) as its astrological symbol.

    Why do you think Jesus is associated with the symbol of the fish?

    Why does the Pope (and his henchmen) wear a mitre shaped in the head of a fish representing the Piscean symbol?
    Isn’t he, according to Christian tradition, the representative of Jesus on Earth during the prevailing Piscean Age?

    In Jewish mythology Melchizedek is the Ascended Master over Jesus. Jesus was ‘classed’ as a student High Priest in the Order the same way Abraham was Melchizedek’s viceroy.

  • YOU ARE CERTAINLY NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE SEMITIC CUSTOMS AND THE PRIESTHOOD. ESPECIALLY IN SEMITIC CULTURES THE FIRST BORN WAS REGARDED WITH SPECIAL BIRTH RIGHTS”

    WHERE DO YOU THINK THE PATRIARCHAL ORDER EMERGED?

    The Same PATRIARCHAL ORDER that Existed in the Very Beginning, Exist Today.

    Genesis 1:26-28 (KJV)

    26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

    27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

    28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

    Our Heavenly Father Blessed them and gave them dominion over everything…In the Patriarchal Order those Blessings of Authority (Priesthood) are Passed down from Fathers to their Sons. ADAM WAS THE FIRST PATRIARCH AND WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR BLESSING HIS POSTERITY.

    LAWS GOVERNED THE INHERITANCE OF BIRTH RIGHT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

    Several customs and traditions of the Hebrews are related to this question, namely, patriarchal government, primogeniture,(first born Right of Inheritance) .The patriarchs in the Old Testament times usually governed their families directly—their wives, sons, unmarried daughters, families of the sons, and so on. When the father died, he was succeeded as head of the family by a son.

    So that there would be no disputation as to which son would succeed the father, the practice of primogeniture, or the law of the firstborn, developed. (Prime means “first”; geniture has to do with birth.) Upon the death of the father, the firstborn (eldest) son became the new head of the family. As this was his right because of the order of his birth, he was referred to as the birthright son (see Gen. 43:33). The birthright son was entitled to a double portion (that is, twice as much as any other son) of the father’s inheritance—one portion as a son, the second portion as the new head responsible for the family (see Gen. 48:22; Deut. 21:17), including the care of his mother and unmarried sisters. As firstborn son, under the Aaronic order, he also held the right of presiding over the family.

    Cain lost his Birth right because of disobedience and the Seriousness of Sin.

    No second-born sons were considered for the birthright unless all firstborn sons proved to be unworthy.

    Seth was born after Cain slew Abel. Adam was 130 years old when Seth was born. Seth’s lineage is the chosen lineage for priesthood ordination now, given Abel was murdered by Cain.

    An understanding of these customs helps one to understand the following episodes in the bible concerning the “right to rule” among the patriarchs.

    The Priesthood was first given to Adam; and held the keys of it from generation to generation. He obtained it in the Creation, before the world was formed, as in Genesis 1:26, 27, 28. He had dominion given him over every living creature.

  • FREEDOM BELIEVES IN CHRISTIANITY NOT MYTHOLOGY…

    Especially in Semitic Cultures the First Born was regarded with special Birth Rights…Cain Felt entitled because he was the first-born and was Offended that his brothers offering was Acceptable before God while his was Rejected… Genesis 4: 4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering {Infers that Cain’s offering was not the Best}:…

    5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. {In other words Cain did not offer his Best}

    6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

    However God told him Genesis 4:7 “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? {IN OTHER WORDS YOU COULD DO BETTER THAN YOU DID} and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. and unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.”

    Nevertheless, Cain Loved the Adversary more than God, he did not want to Humble himself, he was Proud and Envious in his heart and sought what was given to Abel (the Blessing) without working for it. As the scripture denotes above he obviously did not do well and Sin indeed lieth at his door. Instead of listening to God and Trying to do better that would have brought him Blessings he listened to the father of Lies and the great Deceiver and Cain reaped the whirlwind of his Choices..

    1 John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

    Hebrews 11:4-6 (kjv) By Faith, Abel offered unto God a more Excellent Sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts… and by it he being dead yet speaketh…. BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.

    Genesis 4:11-12 11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;

    12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. {No one can Prosper with such Intentions}

    IT WAS BY FAITH THAT ABEL BROUGHT A MORE ACCEPTABLE OFFERING; HE WAS NOT PROUD IN HIS HEART AND HAD AN ELITIST MIND-SET LIKE HIS BROTHER CAIN, WHO WAS PRIDEFUL, ENVIOUS AND SOUGHT FOR POWER TO RULE.

    It is Impossible to please God without Faith…Abel was faithful in every respect and trusted his Heavenly Father while his brother was the Exact Opposite, because Cain was the first Born he felt Entitled because of his Station to Rule over his Brother… The Story of Cain and Abel teaches Principles of Faith that Abel exhibited. It was what he Believed, not what he brought that was acceptable. It is Impossible to Please God devoid of Faith…HE IS THE REWARDER OF THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.

    Can’t you spot the enigmatic confusion of pure contradiction in this poorly written fable?

    If Yahweh created both man and woman at the same time as described in the first chapter of the Jewish book of plagiarized myths, legends and downright lies how come the same Yahweh, in the subsequent chapter, had to put to sleep the lonely Adam in order to produce a wo(e)man from his rib?

    If you can really believe that a man of 130 years and a ‘cloned’ woman can breed to produce a third child called Seth then you can believe that the murderous Cain impregnated his own cloned sister called Mary Jean Naime.

    GENESIS 2 (KJV)… 4 ¶ These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,

    5 And every plant of the field BEFORE IT WAS IN THE EARTH, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the lord god had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

    6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground

    GENESIS 2:7 “AND THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND, AND BREATHED INTO HIS NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE; AND MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL.”

    8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

    18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

    19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

    20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

    21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

    22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

    23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

    So why can’t you -the general purpose (GP) doctor of Biblical Literacy- do what Yahweh failed to tell Moses while in the burning bush by explaining what he (Yahweh) meant when he said in Chapter 2:24 the following:
    “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

    Who was this “man” that Yahweh was referring to? Adam?

    Who were Adam’s (and Eve) “father and mother”?

    Was Yahweh expatiating to Moses (using the well-known “Literary Device”) in Chapter 2 that He, Yahweh, created other beings as said in the first chapter and who had to reproduce in order to be called Daddy & Mummy; or Grandad & Nan in the case of Cain & Abel?
