History Channel's: "History Of The World In 2 Hours": "Jesus Magic In Science"



Is it possible that those who operate under the guise of "Science" but whose tactics are more like propaganda and perpetual repetition as a means of glossing over the irrationality in their claims - are in fact NOT SCIENCE?


My belief:

  • PHYSICAL SCIENCE:  (Geology, Cosmology, Planetary Science, etc) might be correct on the age of the universe (billions of years)
  • SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED WITH BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE

I DO NOT believe in the "God Made The Universe In 7 Literal Days"

I DO NOT BELIEVE that "THE BIG BANG THEORY" and  EVOLUTION are legitimate models of reality.


"All of the matter in the universe came from ONE ATOM THAT EXPLODED billions of years ago".  (as claimed in this "science" documentary above).

Why is it that they are not forced to prove their supposition as are the people who say "God did it"?

THE ORIGINS OF LIFE is even more fraudulent. 
If "Life came to Earth" via living basic molecules that survived the trip through space in an asteroid - IT TOO had a common origin via the "Big Bang".  

SO AGAIN - where did this extraterrestrial life come from?

In Reviewing The '3rd Party Fight Promotion" Between Mike Huckabee And Michelle Williams Over Huckabee's Comments About Beyonce' The Conversation Focused On "Beyonce The Person" And NOT The Common "Christianity" That All 3 Of Them Claim


This is my "Cultural Strategy" blog and not my political analysis blog (See "Within The Black Community" for that) so I am going to take a different emphasis.

First of all - I have to credit Michelle Williams, former member of "Destiny's Child" and friend of Beyonce, for the composure in her response.

If you read the coverage of the interaction between "Williams" and  "Huckabee" on "The View" - from 3rd party sources you would swear that some (ignorant) smack down has taken place and "The White  ignorant ole man got checked".   Instead Michelle Williams showed some class in her public response.





The video above proved most instructive.

Rosy O'Donnell - the critic of "Christianity" said "YOU CAN'T MESS WITH THE BEY".

If you think about her argument it is 100% rooted in "SECULAR IDEOLOGY".

BY WHAT MEANS "can you not mess with the Bey"?
  • Because in her POPULARITY she is always right?
  • Because she has some type of grounding that all of us should yield to?
The truth is - Beyonce' is every bit of the "CAPITALISTIC 1%" that most people on the panel on "The View" rail against.   The difference is - Beyonce' is not a "Wall Street Capitalist" and doesn't appear on the people's 'dart board'.

My greatest criticism, however is reserved for the missed opportunity shared by "Mike Huckabee" and "Michelle Williams".

Huckabee the "Former Christian Preacher" and Michelle Williams the "occasional Christian gospel singer" have ONE COMMON ORACLE that they should have agreed to YIELD THEIR PERSONAL SENTIMENTS TO as they appraise "Beyonce's work" NOT BASED UPON HER PERSONAL CHOICES but instead based upon what SHE PROFESSES TO BE - A CHRISTIAN.

Indeed people are influenced by the messages that Beyonce and others who "contribute to our CULTURE" put forth in "the water that we drink".    As a christian we are asked to SWIM AGAINST THE TIDE and retain the integrity of our faith in "Jesus Christ".


Mike Huckabee - though I can understand (after reading "Kelvin Cochran's book "Who Told You That You Were Naked" which was written to WAYWARD YOUNG MEN, with the hopes that they would find a purpose in their lives) how an author can resent having a small passage in his book be maligned and molested so that the constructive message is filibustered out of the discussion, Huckabee failed to bring the argument into this COMMON REFERENCE for scrutiny.

Michelle Williams, defended her friend - saying that these two songs - as a small part of a larger whole, were "freaky songs" (my words) that "Beyonce had pinned up within her".   Williams, ironically was asking Huckabee to not tarnish the greater whole of the album based on these two songs.

I can't accept this as an argument for the very same reasons why I firmly stand by THE MESSAGE that Kelvin Cochran has put forth.

The consistency is in "The Word" - and the "one part per million" that some are OFFENDED by:
  • In the case of "Who Told You That You Were Naked" - critical references to "Homosexuality" as "Unclean Living
  • In the case of "Beyonce" - Two "Freeky Tracks" on an album that had about 10 songs
the COMMON REFERENCE that all yield their arguments to should prevent people from "Majoring In The Minors" BUT ALSO - prevent the old adage from becoming true:

"When a large bag of SUGAR is mixed with a small piece of FECES - ONLY ONE OF THEM retain their original integrity".

When My Close Family Friends Divorce I Can't Help But To Consider "What Could I Have Done To Help?"

Recently my wife told me that a pair of family friends have chosen to get a divorce.  

This couple who was once the core of our "house party circuit" seemed to be happy together.  They had a bond that produced 3 children and an upper-middle class amount of comfortable living.

When they moved away a few years ago - under the guise of a "job promotion" I called them brave for "Following Their Dreams".    Now I wonder if they moved in order to "disconnect" from their network of friends  (Us) so that they can either "work it out" or "go their own separate ways".

I have some other group of friends who I met in college and they all settled in the metro-Atlanta area.   Over time we gathered together for house-parties and to watch "Mike Tyson" destroy his adversaries - and for membership in an "Investment Club" - back when the "Internet Bubble" had made it easy to make you believe that you were an "expert stock analyst".

The subsequent years in which we "got married", "had children" and, in some cases, moved to a larger house - all worked to reduce the number of occasions that we'd get together at a "house party".
In some cases I am astounded and anger that they "little baby" is now a teenager.   How did a person who I spent nearly every weekend with fall out of my "inner circle"?


Updated today - the news that these close friends are now parting ways "hurts me inside".

"What if my wife and I worked harder to break out of our own shell to reach out to these friends?  Would this have been the spark to keep them together?"   A question that a lot of "children of divorce" ask relative to their parents.


There is no question that when friends come to my own house - it draws us all away from our "individual televisions" into the family room.   We play "dominoes"and "bingo" (or any other cheap game I purchase at Wal-Mart/Toys R Us), fight over a movie to watch on "Netflix" before reaching "cross-generational agreement".  But most of all the CONVERSATION is key.

I hear my wife tell me details about her recent experiences that she did not describe for me.  It is also true that I am guilty of the same.    The point is that you can learn more details about your "life partner" by having a person from another time in their lives - coming for a visit and provoking the MEMORIES that your own conversations did not provoke for discussion.

If there is any solace to the end of these married relationships - it is that I can think of none of my friends who divorced with "elementary school aged children" still at home.   At worse - they part ways when the kids are in high school, but most frequently it is after the kids have left for college.

I know none of them in which "physical violence" or abuse was the issue that broke them apart.  The quest for "happiness" beyond the frequent arguments and also "infidelity" appear to be the primary points of separation.

The Gift Of Enlightenment On The "Power Of Imagining A Developed Future", Given To Me By A Retired Army Officer

Neville Goddard - Your Power

Summary:
The test of your power is not what you have built up and someone has destroyed.
When you can REBUILD what has been destroyed because THE VISION IN YOUR MIND'S EYE compels you to RETURN TO YOUR PURPOSE - is the evidence of YOUR POWER.


WOW.
This  line of thinking clarifies so much in my personal life and in the serial debates that I engage in regarding the importance of the "Governance Of Black Community Institutions" through which people are developed as a superior notion to the drive for "Reparations" for past injuries - who some say are the cause of today's dysfunction.


At a recent gathering I had a conversation with a "distinguished gentleman".
He told me about his years of service in the US Army and how he rose to the top of his profession after he learned that he was the primary person responsible for his own future.

He told me about a few works from "Neville Goddard" - a late "philosophical thinker", who he said was instrumental in adjusting his thoughts.

I have been listening to a few of his works and they come at a perfect time.

I have been so focused on "managing crises" at home, at work and among extended family - that I have gotten too far away from my "personal philosophy"

With The Presumption Of "Police Racial Profiling" As A Given - A Black Police Detective Effectively Tells Young Blacks At A Crime Scene To "Stop Snitching"



On this blog I do not give stinging criticism - only strategic advise.

The logical consequence of the "Police Are The Greatest Criminals Within The Black Community" meme that is pushed today - is what you are witnessing in this video.

When given the choice between - 'A young Black male at a crime scene in his own community offering information to his fellow police officers as they pursue 'Justice'" versus THE ASSUMPTION that the police see him as a CRIMINAL until he proves himself otherwise - this veteran detective tells the audience to do the later.

My life experience with the police does not reflect what we hear as the "popular narrative".

I am not hear to affirm or deny the veracity of their claims.

As an adult I work to speak to a policeman "man to man" and thus don't have fear - if I am not guilty.

What is lost in this debate, however, as we move from individual incidents or affirmations of the stereotypes of "Police Abuse Of Black people" is a BLACK COMMUNITY that is stripped of one of the key attributes of a well governed community: "A POLICE FUNCTION" that is charged with "Keeping The Peace And Protecting The Citizens As They Pursue 'Happiness".

Those who bring forth data to affirm this abuse should not be mistaken as solution providers.  Getting the congregation to AGREE that they are being victimized and that this enemy needs REGULATION from the government SPEAKS NOTHING about the internal regulatory components and the cultural affirmations that are needed to assist in achieving a peaceful, prosperous community, setting up the possibility of "happiness".

All Colonizing Powers Reserve The Right To Write Their Own History: White A Gay Kiss On The Children-Oriented "Cartoon Network" Was Turned Into A Peck On The Cheek - PROGRESS Is Being Made Because "Same Sex Kissing" On Prime Time Television Is Now Commonplace As Compared To 20 Years Ago

THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY

THIS POST IS ABOUT NAKED "IMPERIALISM" AND INDOCTRINATION DRESSED UP AS "PROGRESS" AND "TOLERANCE"

 Link To AJC Article


What If I told you that - in one sense "Gay Sex" is EQUAL to "Hetrosexual Sex" in that the American Capitalistic Media in its quest for retaining its audience and the revenues that flow through the people are in a constant search to "PUSH THE ENVELOP" so that they can create a sense of "Edge-iness".

Thus the "20 years ago" reference in the story about the "once unheard of GAY KISS" on network television was merely a WAYPOINT that has been passed today - EQUAL TO the previous interval of time in which HETEROSEXUAL "EXPLICITY" was ratcheted up as a ratings draw.

When someone does a comparison between intervals of time and tells you what WAS NOT "PERMISSIBLE" in the past and notes the PROGRESS that has been made - it is UP TO YOU to assign relative value to this "PROGRESS" and demand for yourself a validation of the UTILITY of this progress upon some larger benefit to society and its governance - or else you are going to be made into a "Television Viewer", lulled into demanding a "new edge" to satisfy your insatiable wants.


When Is The Colonial Power Forced To Own Up To Who He Really Is?

In this cherry picked reference to "Progress" in which we are given a timeline of the change in acceptability of "gay kisses".

During this same period of time we have seen an identifiable trend on:


  • Heterosexual Marriage Rates
  • Single Female Headed Households
  • STD Rates Upon Certain Segments Of The Society
  • Stagnation In Take-Home Pay For Those Who Lack Skills For Advanced Employment

The real question must be "WHO GETS TO CHERRY PICK And Assign Value To What Concepts That We Determine As "Progress" Or "Retrogression" Or Even "Social Entropy".

Left Unchecked - The COLONIALIST And His Goal Of "Cultural Imperialism" Reserves This Right And Will Leverage His Control Over The Media And His Will For Profits To Achieve These Ends.


It Is Abundantly Clear That To Most - "Colonialism", In And Of Itself Is Not Repudiated, Despite What They Want You To Think.
As Long As They Are On The Side That Is Doing The Encroachment  - Those Who Resist Are Said To Be The "Bigot" Or The "Savage" And Thus Such Colonization Is Done For ENLIGHTENMENT And Not "The Suppression Of Self-Determination"


THE COLONIST IS CERTAIN THAT HE WILL "STAND ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY" BECAUSE HE INTENDS TO BE THE PUBLISHER OF SUCH HISTORY.

Thank You Dr Craig Spencer For Serving Mankind At The Time Of Great Crisis. You Have Motivated Me To Make More Contributions To "Doctors Without Borders"


The money that I was plotting to spend on an "iPhone 6 Plus" will be instead sent to "Doctors Without Borders" for assistance in their fight in the hot zone against Ebola in West Africa.

My Problem In A Nutshell - The Art Of Persuasion In A Sea Of Forces That Are More Affirming Than I Am, As They Mislead

(Taking a quick work break from the stress of trying to assemble an important customer presentation)


I as I consider my interactions with (those who I call) "Embedded Confidence Men" - the Public Figures With The Command Of Political Priorities And The Media  To Mis-Direct Their Congregation Accordingly - my goal of "bashing them" to counteract their clear fraudulent intent serves my purpose.

Anyone who can read through my "antics" and look at the framework of the "larger universe" that I model and then contrast this against the "American Political Opportunistic" subset that these confidence men seek to focus our people upon will clearly see the reasons why the "Best Laid Plans Of Black Americans" do not turn out as expected.   Their goal is NOT to "Develop The Black Community" but to harvest our "Black Consciousness" into an American Political Struggle For Power.  This POWER is never going to replace that which is lost as we disarm our selves from the "Competencies To Govern Our Own Institutions".

These confidence men know that you can't have "Strong Black Local Institutions" that exist as it gets in the way of their goal of fusing our consciousness onto "American Political Opportunism" as the key expression of "Blackness".


When I go on "FaceBook" - I don't have the anonymity of this blog to hide behind.  I am no longer debating "Charles Blow", "Melissa Harris Perry", "Black Republican Opportunists" Or "Preachers Of The Fake Jesus Of Social Justice".

I am debating "Friends".

Though these "friends" make use of the very same schemes that are at play in the "Malcolm X American Political Football Game" - my personal relationship with them and my desire to retain this relationship serves as a limitation on what I can do to "blast them" as I see their "Popularist tricks".

IT IS "I" WHO NEEDS A BETTER SCHEME

It is clear to me that with "Those I Love" - I need to find a SYSTEM that ENVELOPS "The System" that they today call their "Norm Of Consciousness".

While I am "bashing" them - they have other forces with nefarious intent "telling them what they want to hear" - they will choose to look past the evidence of this contempt that these other forces have.  

Worse case - as they look to defend the honor of the MARTYR that was stood up for them to converge around - they will agree to LOOK PAST the thousands of other "Abused Women" or "Murdered Sons" - whose "Oppressor" was not just "one man" who can be put on trial but the SYSTEM which systematically steals our upward thrust.


I admit my mistakes.   With a loved one you hope to convince you can't "Come At Them" on the attack.   When I hear the defensiveness of "So you think you are smarter than me?" and then the "FaceBook" 'likes' that affirm this defensiveness - I have to accept that it was ME who came into their closed group and tried to "Change The Rules" / "Change The Subject" - without first building up the proper framework to see that they are "doubling down" on investments of their time and passions that will only ever produce diminishing returns while consuming more of "Their Consciousness".

I am going back to the drawing board with a new strategy.
Still my sister blog "Within The Black Community" is a necessary "sanity check" on what I see being executed at the expense of my people.

HOW DO WE TURN OUR YOUNG PEOPLE INTO "BLACK DIASPORATIC FIRST RESPONDERS" AS THEY ASSUME THE MANTEL THAT WE ARE CONDITIONED TO RESERVE FOR THE 'AMERICAN GOVERNMENT FIRST RESPONDERS', THUS DISARMING OURSELVES FROM OUR 'PURPOSE' BEYOND THE UNITED STATES?
