Smallest Nations Lead the Way to World’s Largest Ocean Preserve

August 5, 2019 – For Immediate Release (Parvati.org)

While most countries turn a blind eye to the unprecedented global crisis of the loss of Arctic ice, small island nations are leading the way to protect it through supporting MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. MAPS transforms the entire Arctic Ocean into the world’s largest preservation area, stopping all activities harmful to the ice, the Earth’s air conditioner. Other nations must follow their lead now, while there is still time. 

What is happening in the Arctic is affecting all life everywhere. Few people realize that the Arctic sea ice reflects the sun’s heat away from the planet and ensures everyone has the food and water needed to survive. But it’s melting fast, while global mega powers seek to profit off its thaw, putting life everywhere at risk. Though small island nations like the Cook Islands have contributed the least to the environmental and humanitarian crisis unfolding in our world today, they face some of the most severe effects, with disappearing coastlines, ravaging storms and rising food instability. The loss of our Arctic sea ice, and its devastating effects around the world, are an underreported global emergency.   

Everyone has the right to know that the problem is massive. But there is more than hope. There is MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary. MAPS not only turns the Arctic Ocean above the Arctic Circle into the biggest peace sanctuary the world has ever known, free from exploitation, shipping traffic and military activity; it compels a global shift to sustainability on all levels. By taking Arctic seabed oil off the table for good, it catalyzes our pivot to renewable energies. In a time of widespread strife, MAPS unites the world as one Earth family—giving voice to all nations and people equally, regardless of their wealth or political influence. It bypasses bureaucratic red tape to create the protection we urgently need at the necessary speed. And it takes the priority away from short-term gain for a few to where it belongs: the long-term good of all. 

Inspired by a world in need, the all-volunteer Parvati.org, founded and led by the award-winning Canadian musician and author Parvati, took the unprecedented step to create the MAPS Treaty as an addendum to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. This powerful expression of love in action has been translated into all six official languages of the UN, distributed to all 193 member states, and brought every year since 2015 to UN Climate Conferences by volunteers at their own expense. It enters into force with the signatures of 99 states members of the UN or any of the specialized agencies. The Arctic sea ice is a gift of life for the entire world. Protecting it is everyone’s birthright.   

Though small island nations are far from the Arctic, they understand this, and have been leading the way for MAPS. Prime Minister Henry Puna, who has signed the MAPS Treaty on behalf of the people of the Cook Islands, says: 

As a global citizen, the Cook Islands recognises that climate change and its impacts knows no boundaries and affects us all. 

We say we are on the front lines, we will be impacted first, we are most vulnerable. But in reality, what happens in the Arctic, what happens with the pack ice, and what happens as our seas warm, we are all going to bear the brunt of these effects. 

This is why the Cook Islands are going to sign up to and support the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary Treaty. The time for bold action is now, and while my country has already started, we support others to do the same. 

Prime Minister Puna joins Samoa Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi who was the first signatory to the MAPS Treaty. “We owe sincere gratitude and respect to the small island developing states who are courageously leading the call to protect our world,” says Parvati. “They understand that the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary does not just protect the Arctic Ocean. It protects all of life. Let’s join them wholeheartedly in standing up for a healthy world.” 

Visit Parvati.org, sign the petition for MAPS and tell your government to follow the Cook Islands and Samoa by signing the MAPS Treaty now.

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.  
Does your organization have financial interest in MAPS in any way?  
– No. The members of this not-for-profit are are all volunteers.   
– Our interest is in our collective survival.

    GREED MAYBE BUT YA GOT BLAMING THE WRONG MAN!!!

    AMERICA’S ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP

    From day one, the Trump Administration administration has made it a top priority to ensure that America has among the very cleanest air and cleanest water on the planet. “We want the cleanest air. We want crystal-clean water, and that’s what we’re doing and that’s what we’re working on so hard.”

    Today, the United States is ranked — listen to this — number one in the world for access to clean drinking water — ranked number one in the world.

    One of the main messages of air pollution — particulate matter — is six times lower here than the global average. So we hear so much about some countries and what everyone is doing. We’re six times lower than the average. That’s a tremendous number.

    IN ADDITION…

    President Trump sign the landmark legislation that will clean sea-borne trash from the oceans total restore President Donald Trump has signed a landmark new bill to introduce legislation that will clean millions of tons of sea-borne garbage from the world’s oceans. Trump extended and expanded the program to clean up man-made waste by boosting international cooperation on removing debris from the planet’s oceans, which he described as “very important.” The president added his signature to the “Save Our Seas Act,” giving the green light an initiative that will clean up eight million tons of trash from the oceans around the world. As Trump signed the Save Our Seas Act into law at the Oval Office, he told the press he was “very pleased” to introduce such “important legislation.” “As president, I will continue to do everything I can to stop other nations from making our oceans into their landfills,” he said. “That’s why I’m pleased – very pleased, I must say – to put my signature on this important legislation.”

    THE PRESIDENT NAMED THE PHILIPPINES, AS “ONE OF THE WORST THREE” OCEAN POLLUTERS.

    “People don’t realize it, but all the time we’re being inundated by debris from other countries,” Trump said. “And we will be responding and very strongly.”

  • THIS PIECE OF CLIMATE CHANGE FEAR MONGERING PROPAGANDA, SHOULD HAVE BEEN TITLED, “THE WAR ON OIL”. THE INTENT AND TAKE AWAY FROM THE ARTICLE ACCORDING TO THE AUTHOR… >>> “BY TAKING ARCTIC SEABED OIL OFF THE TABLE FOR GOOD, IT CATALYZES OUR PIVOT TO RENEWABLE ENERGIES.” MONEY MONEY MONEY $$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!

    IT’S ABOUT THE MONEY, NOT THE CLIMATE

    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.

    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.”

    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.

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

    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.

    Some of the small lies used to perpetuate the big lie include:
    • It is warmer now than ever before.
    • There is more severe weather now than ever before.
    • CO2 levels are the highest ever.
    • Arctic and Antarctic sea ice levels are the lowest ever.
    • Extinction rates are the highest ever.
    • Polar bear populations are in serious decline.
    • Sea levels are rising at an increasing rate.
    • 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.

  • HOW WOULD THE $$$$$ GREEN PROPAGANDA EFFECT THE ECONOMIC CLIMATE OF OUR NATION BARBADOS? Part 1
    Submitted By Freedom Crier

    Freedom Crier has been saying that the Green Energy Scheme is a $$$$$ making Rip Off System that could very well be the Main Spring that would Bury us Bajan’s. IS THIS WHAT WE DESIRE FOR BARBADOS?

    Green energy is the PERFECT SCAM disguised as a do-good movement and the victims unorganized and disarmed by propaganda because it is fashioned to make them feel that they are saving the Planet. The green energy movement, is endorsed by government agencies, environmental non-profits agencies and scientific groups. These are people that are often seen as sources of reliable information but that, in reality, work to promote their own PAROCHIAL INTERESTS. THIS FRAUD NEEDS TO BE EXPOSED.

    NOW THAT WE HAVE A BAN ON SINGLE USE PLASTICS, REMEMBER THEY TOLD US IN APRIL “NEW RATE COMING”

    Minister of Energy and Water Resources, Wilfred Abrahams, revealed that the Fair Trading Commission (FTC) has been given the responsibility to define the feeding tariff for persons producing up to one megawatt of electricity.

    Investors in renewable energy will have a decision on a standardized rate of return for the power they supply to the national grid.

    The minister explained that investors would be locked into this rate of return for the next 20 years,{which is the life span of solar panels}….at the end of their life the toxic materials that they are made of will be dumped into our landfills.

    WHAT! WHAT! WHAT! Rates paid to the suppliers of electric is going to be 41cents per Kwh and that is to the distribution arm of the BL&P who have to maintain the poles, lines, employ crew whether their poles fall or not or the transformer blow up or out etc. We are told that the cost of panels are dropping yet the planned cost of electricity is going to be is slated to be set for 20 years only from the supplier at double the present cost of electricity and then BL&P has to supply it to the user at double that so now at a minimum the cost per KWH is going up 2 times 2X Times! If your bill is $ 500 it will now be $1,000.00!

    Barbados will be a miserable place to live if this malfeasance continues and you have a man like Bizzy biting at the bit to make Mega Millions on the back of Bajans all because the Madam PM wants sustainable energy. {When rates double whom do you think Bajans will turn to, to put panels on their roof to avoid the risen costs with the attendant loss of foreign currency}. We will all die on the vine, as everything we use prices will go up just to pay Bizzy and the PM Ego. STOP THE MADNESS. There is nothing we buy that will not show significant rise in prices. From the foods, we eat to fast food to already high price of raw chicken to the doctor to the paying of additional taxes for the government we already pay taxes for and the added cost in the tourism sector making Barbados an unaffordable destination. {We are not being bold and innovative, this is recklessness following an ideology that will bring ruin to us}.

    CORRECT ME AND OR EDUCATE ME IF I AM WRONG.

    General speaking the BL&P bill is in three parts (1) the rates they charge for the supply of electricity. This is their charge. This charge does not change it depends on your usage. (2) The fuel adjustment charge they do not control as this is the energy that they use to make the electricity. This charge per Kwh varies from month to month depending on the government importation costs, as they are the only importer of petroleum products. {We do not know what taxes are included in the fuel cost} (3) The VAT calculated on the total of the two others # 1 & # 2. This gives the total billing for any entity. {Here we have Vat calculated on the taxes on the fuel}
    BL&P has stated in the past that they will pay {credit you} the fuel charge that corresponds to the electricity that you supply to the grid and charge you as normal for whatever you use that they supply this would include their charge, the fuel charge and the VAT. This understanding was for the householders who went the route of PV. I do not know who supplies the switching equipment.
    The BL&P is a business that sells product called electricity they are under pressure by government to go renewables but they are not doing the investment. They as far as I understand will buy PV electricity from say a PV farm put it into the grid after stepping up the voltage and turning it into AC and not DC, So that their infrastructure stays the same.
    The last I heard, there is a law that no one can supply electricity to another, as in a community to supply to each other and the excess to BL&P and a special amendment was made to allow a person who have their own PV supply to sell it back to the BL&P, but that was for the cost of the fuel that they BL&P would have saved.
    The cost increase is if Barbados goes all PV power and that is impossible no matter the overcapacity that the PV plant has, as the sun does not shine when it is night, rain or overcast days or for all of the daylight hours. The low cost battery technology is not there to store the volume of power at this time.
    Whether the farm produces all of the electricity in the day or none the BL&P plant must be fully manned and all crews working to do all normal repairs that cost is built in the 29cents per Kwh. There will be additional costs associated with buying from the PV farms as mentioned above. Estimated at 7-10 cents per Kwh that BL&P will impose unless it is built in to the electricity that the PV farms charge, as they will have to convert it to AC and very high voltage for transmission.
    This is not about energy security although you can think so, this is not about CO2 saving the planet, if you believe that you have not read enough. CO2 is plant food more of it will make all crops grow better during the past age where the earth was abundant in plant life the CO2 was 2000ppm and higher, now it has risen to 400ppm. We have a long way to go and that will be good as all the food crops will increase many fold to give an example a room of people attending a seminar the CO2 will reach 1200ppm easily with no ill effects what could affect us is if the AC intake vent does not let in fresh air (Oxygen). The real intent of this move is a move by the lending agencies to Enforce their Will on us to go green. A Death Wish for the world in terms of real supply of power. If there was money in it the big economies would have done it already but their power is cheap compared to Barbados that is why the lending agencies can get away with it in Barbados and then they will point to the world if Barbados can do it we want you to do it also, we are their guinea pig. Moreover, the cost to Bajans will be a steep cost to be borne.
    The world will not run out of oil, coal and gas in 500 hundred years the price will continue to drop that is a given as the price of fracking drops {We also have two major supplies of oil out of the market at this time Venezuela & Iran, showing that the Price of Oil has not increased}.
    Relook at the pricing for a normal business.

    Price paid by BL&P to PV supplier Farm 46.50
    BL&P Supply Cost estimate 29.00 no Fuel, No Vat
    Estimated added Costs By BL&P for New Type Equipment 7.00
    Total Costs 82.50
    Final Vat to consumer 14.44
    Total Paid including Vat in Cents 96.94
    Price Originally paid in Cents per Kwh 61.82 Includes supply, Fuel & VAT
    % Increase 56.81%
    E.G. If paid before the introduction of PV $ 1,000.00
    Will now pay after PV introduction $ 1,568.06
    That is a currency devaluation by stealth

    The is the most COCKAMAMIE SCHEME that any government in Barbados has come up with, if you thought that Stuarty was bad wait till you see what this would do to Barbados. No one would be safe to live, as 90% of Bajan’s would be crying out, CRIME will Rise to levels we only see in other countries. Stop this Madness! Why do we have to sacrifice our lives to an experiment for the Bankers/lenders of last resort of Barbados? We will never escape their clutches ever or is this the plan? Come on PM use the people/advisors you pay so much money to change this crap that you seem to have involved yourself into.

    This Fraud of global warming/climate change/Global cooling/climate extremes is BULL. Wake up Barbados read on the net while it is still there and still not completely controlled as yet. Read or watch the video of DR. Patrick Moore. And many other scientist who disagree on the manmade global warming and all the crap they throw at you. There are over 3,100 who have signed disagreeing on the IPCC reports, look up Lord Monkton.

    There is no country in the world that have done this, you are using Barbados as an experiment and those other countries have more money than us, this is uneconomical madness the same crap we dumped Stuarty for. But this bogus ploy will bury us, even tourism will be greatly impacted. Even Germany has retreated from sustainable energy and they were the poster child for Sustainable energy.

    OK say for augment I am wrong come and tell we Bajans what the price of electricity will be at the #2 level of electricity rate. Man up or Women up. And tell us we need to pay it, Please do not try tricks and tell us that the #1 level would not go up or that the #2 level would be where most of the householders are at tell us what the #4 level would be at for householder and for business. And stick to it do not try to be sanctimonious with us, talk the truth tell us the names of the big people who will be enjoying the rate of $.41per KWH when they sell it we only know of one Bizzy. Or better yet have the BL&P come out and say the rate they will have to charge to us hapless dumb ass stupid Bajans (this is how you see us) so that they can get a return on their investment.

    They going with the flow because anything that Government does do there will be money in it for them that how governments work. I dear you! I double dear you! I triple dear you! Get the BL&P to say the price at the various levels (and not create more levels) and get them to say how long they will keep that price for and stick to it. I will make prediction electricity will sell for more than 1.5 times to 2 times the present cost than what we pay for now but the caveat is BL&P must state the price as they will be delivering it to the consumer with the conditions listed above. Come on, Man up/Woman up to the Barbadian public.

    WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE AGREEMENTS SIGNED FOR THE EXPLORATION OF OIL OFF BARBADOS? ARE WE GOING TO RESCIND THOSE AGREEMENTS BECAUSE OF OUR CHANGING IDEOLOGY TOWARDS RENEWABLES? ALTERNATIVELY, ARE WE GOING TO DO LIKE GUYANA AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHAT COMES OUR WAY?

    IS THIS WHAT WE DESIRE FOR BARBADOS?

    It’s really shocking to think that you, (FC the fiery critic of any thing sane and scientific) and your other half in tomfoolery the scientifically-certified nutter Dr. GP could talk about “Earth’s 4.5 billion year history” while still regurgitating ad nauseam the fairy tale story of an universe which was made in less than 7 days about 10,000 years ago and plagiarized in a book written by literary quacks and issued with royal warrants by King James for reproduction still to be read to stupid black people after 400 years of physical and mental slavery.

    In your Book you are told to look to the people of the Book and all the Old Testament Prophets and Jesus Christ are recognised. I could find Criticism of your book also that things Mohamed said is Contradicted right after by commentary.
