God and Man

The student can never be better than the teacher. Words I remember from my childhood. Those words echoed in my brain a valuable lesson of not trying to reach beyond my boundaries. There is another saying though, that power corrupts and it is my belief that the ultimate corruption is not the bending and twisting of rules and laws to become a beneficiary of those perversions.

The most extreme case of valorousness and sheer gull is when men try to achieve divine status while still a mortal being on earth. David Koresh was one of this beings who believed he was actually a prophet whose destiny would be fathering the “Chosen One”. While he was born Vernon Howell, he changed his name to David Koresh in which he claimed direct lineage to King David and the Persian King Cyrus the Great. He became his own self-proclaimed messianic figure.

David Koresh is just one of many figures in our history that wanted to be more than human so they turned themselves into their own conceptualized divine incarnate. Jim Jones, Charles Manson, Marshall Applewhite and a host of others have all claimed to be Jesus or a religious prophet. From early in our history we have voiced a special bond with whatever being we thought created the universe and ourselves. Perhaps the most famous example of this bond is the Apotheosis of George Washington. The painting can be seen in the US Capitol building in which it depicts Washington becoming a God and sitting on a throne among of Roman Gods like Minerva, Columbia and Neptune.

Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs also claimed a special connection between God and themselves. They would claim God gave them birth rights ordinary men and women did not have. The Romans and Greeks were no different.  The burden of proof was rarely questioned in times of prosperity and wealth. What I believe gave them immeasurable malice and confidence is that God in their eyes looked and behaved just like them.There are several examples of God becoming angry in the Bible. Kings 11:9 God becomes angry with Solomon, Exodus 4:14 God becomes angry at Moses, and Balaam.

We even refer to God in gender specific terms. He, Him, His are always the terms we use to externalize God. We humanize God and in turn subconsciously make it possible to ascend to divinity ourselves. Our belief is arrogance and ego driven at best. We can’t become God simultaneously while trying to trace the steps of creation. Instead of trying to understand we want to conquer. We’d rather rule over the world than merely participate in the fabric of its ecosystem.

The reason mankind wants to rule over the universe is because that is the example we perceive to be followed. Since God rules the universe we must in turn rule the space in which we exist. Not every culture believed that space and time has a supervisor. In ancient African cultures the reality is that God is in everything and everything in the world, good, evil and all in between represents God in its self. In other words God isn’t the overseer of the universe, they are one and the same.

KKK

 

It’s been awhile since I wrote in this blog. It’s appeared to me that some Americans have become concerned about foreign Muslim terror cells coming into this country and killing, and slaughtering innocent lives. What’s been more present is the fear factor among some people who has created this hysteria. Even though among the 14 people killed in the recent San Bernardino killings, two of them were black, it has certainly been more fear mongering from the conservative pool which a majority of those voters are white.

I watched a recent short documentary on the KKK, which seems to be rekindling their old flames of hatred, bigotry, violence, ignorance and yes terrorism. It seems idiosyncratic that pundits on tv and newspapers jump to the word terror the second they get a whiff of a Muslim sounding or influenced name. On the other side of the coin, Dylan Roof the man who executed nine members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church didn’t get that same label. It seems the characterization of that name was just out of reach for America to grasp, not to African-Americans whom never forgot about these types of attacks. In the weeks following the shooting in Charleston there were 6 arson fires in the St Louis area. Most of them were set on black churches. For me, how I see it African-Americans have been living with domestic terrorism far as long as the first slave ships entered into “Turtle Island“(taken from the Aboriginal Creation story).

The issue is it’s not just a few church burnings that keeps black people in fear and delirium. It’s the domestic terrorist groups like the KKK and the White Knights that have woven their hatred in secrecy into different factions of society. One thing that should become unquestionable is the fact since blacks and other minority groups are fighting a war against hate mongers, is that two offensive fronts have been put in place. The ones we see everyday are what I would call your classic bigot in the spotlight. This includes, the likes of Bill O’ Reilly, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others who spew hatred the myth that the “White Man” is losing the country to N#$%% and Sp&^%, Jews and of course the Sand N%$%^.

These guys on the front lines of their views represent a portion of the country that feels affirmative action, welfare and other government programs are only out to help minority groups, even when the numbers prove they themselves are the top beneficiaries. More importantly than that are the racists and domestic terrorists that are hidden in the shadows and remain elusive. These men and women are more dangerous than any pundit, because just like the War on Terror, you don’t know who to look for and distinguish the rest from who are the real enemy.

One such case came to light back in 2006 when the FBI released a seven page document that revealed White Supremacist groups have actively pursued positions in law enforcement. Now, this may be new information to the mass public, but if you say this to anyone in a local black barbershop, you won’t even get a side look. This information has been long suspected among blacks, but my concern lies in what other pockets of government and public service could a potential White Supremacist be lurking. Could it be a congressman/woman, a judge, a doctor who you rely on on the operating table. The scary truth is as long as we don’t know anyone could be an agent. Like Neo from the Matrix fighting the agents, we just don’t know until they reveal their true selves.

One potential ally took a bold stance a month ago and released the names of possible affiliated KKK members. Anonymous who stated, “We are trying to change our world…”, even if this list is bogus, it does present evidence a chaotic coadjuvant relationship in positions of power that seems to create the balancing act circus that minorities have become uncomfortably accustomed to. The saying the pen is mightier than the sword speaks to the policies that were put into place that laid a foundation for the discriminatory practices such as Redlining, Sharecropping, Jim Crow among others. Black unemployment is at epidemic levels, black business ownership is way below any other race and house ownership is down as well. While walking into a massacre is probably the scariest scene one could ever encounter, we can’t undermine the back door meetings and operations that continually to plague communities that are underserved, set aside and forgotten about.

 

It Love healthseems that love is overrated. Excuse me, the portrayal of love on tv, movies and online is overrated. There’s a million movies about the story of two young lovers finding fate and themselves and then fighting all the odds to become star crossed lovers. It’s the tale of love conquers all, but it only happens when you’re young and have no responsibilities. The other side are the blundering mid 30’s or 40’s age when the kids are hormone raging teens, your job has become mundane drudgery and your parents seem to be enjoying their golden age. Some how the characters are stuck in the middle, where the love well is drying up and they re-evaluate their love, but not until temptation, either from another person or life changing event happens. Out of both types of romance movies, which one is the one that makes it through?

Oddly enough, according to Steinberg’s Triangular Love Theory, and my own interpretation of those types of movies, I would say the middle aged couple that hit a lull has a better chance than the hopelessly madly in love that conquers all types. Why?….Well, let’s be honest with ourselves if you’ve been in those fiery type of romances, it’s just like the movies. Excitement, sex, enjoyment, sex, drunken nights, sex, recklessness and more sex. These types of relationships fit into the category of “Romantic Love, ” according to Steinberg. To put it simply, there’s a lot of passion and even intimacy, but it lacks commitment which Consummate Love contains intimacy, passion and commitment. Isn’t the fun part, though finding love and learning the person? Take for existence Titanic, would you have liked the story any different if you saw that Leonardo’s character made it out alive and twenty years later they’re arguing about mortgage payments and why he doesn’t do the same things he used when they first met?

Steinberg’s Triangular Theory of Love has six types of love: Companionate Love-This has intimacy and commitment, but no passion. Commitment-Empty Love, commitment alone. Fatuous Love-Passion and Commitment, but no intimacy. Passion-Infatuation, passion alone. Romantic Love-Intimacy and Passion, but no commitment. Intimacy-Liking, intimacy alone. Consummate as I talked about earlier is the sum of all of them equally. Too often times I see people trying to find love and it seems they have more lust for the person then an actual connection and when the fantasy fades and the girl or boy no longer encaptures what they mislead themselves to think the fun is over and the problems usually occur.

Too many times the benefits of love are overlooked and not mentioned. We can promote sex on the radio as early as the sunrise, but mentioning love somehow seems uncool and talked down about, like it’s some deviant behavior. There are some health benefits of finding love and maintaining a healthy love life. Love has been said to increase your immune system, help keep the pounds off if you exercise with your loved one, lower mortality rates for happy couples, that healthy glow due to less acne causing cortisol from lower stress levels when in love. Cardiovascular health is an added benefit from love as well as holding someone’s hand, can actually decrease the feelings of pain. Having sex once a week can increase estrogen levels and regulate menstrual cycles for women. Last, couples that are deep in love actually have more dopamine brain activity which can be associated with optimism, energy and a sense of well-being.

Love is so powerful, that on a physiological level seeing an attractive face activates the same part of the brain that reacts from painkillers, the opioid system. Being in love makes the heart grow fonder, or least makes the blood flow according to MRI scans that show the nucleus accumbens region has increased blood flow during times of love. A drop in serotonin, maybe an explanation why new lovers sometimes only seem to concentrate on each other and ignore the other person’s faults. When couples are in love for a little while to create the attachment phase. During this phase oxytocin and vasopressin spread throughout the brain and create feelings of well-being and security.

With all these facts about the health benefits and senses of well-being, then why isn’t America more proactive about promoting falling and maintaining love lasting relationships? I know finding true love is hard, but the alternative is a loveless society.

 

I can't breathe

Last Saturday was one of the most amazing experiences of my life on earth to date. I decided I wanted to be a part of history and march along fellow supporters to end this domestic terroristic sub-culture that tosses out cases of black men getting killed with no penalty or punishment of the police officer. Even now there are details behind the shooting and killing of Mike Brown that the prosecutor suppressed that directly conflicts with the narrative that suggests Darren Wilson’s life was in danger at the time of the shooting.

Man in chains

The march began at Washington Square Park, I got there around 3pm because I got off at the wrong stop and missed my scheduled train into Penn Station from LI. I remembered being nervous I was going to miss the crowd, but when I finally got into the city and arrived at West 4rth street I felt relieved. I could see large pockets of people gathering and soon saw the protests signs and heard the megaphones and the chants against racism and support for Eric Garner and Mike Brown.

Once I was inside the park I saw different organizations and that were there for this day. Among the most vocals were members from LRP-COFL.org, Answer Coalition.org, National Liberty Alliance, 100 Blacks for Law Enforcement. I also bought a newspaper called Revolution,  which covered protests from NY to Mexico and all around the globe. I was only in the park for about ten minutes gathering newspapers and fliers when the crowd was moving toward the streets. It was there that I saw the awesome power of our civil liberties at work.

Protest

What was silence, turned into chants organically into the crowd that crescendo into overwhelming applause and cheers. “Hey hey, Ho ho, these racist cops have got to go!” “Hands up, Don’t Shoot!” “Show me what democracy looks like, This is what democracy looks like!” “No justice, No peace!” “Eric Garner, Michael Brown,shut it down, shut it down!” I could see the faces of the onlookers and police by the barricades. Some were there just to see what the fuss was about, others showed support on their way to work or wherever they needed to be. Often they chanted with us and gave more power to the message that #Alllivesmatter even if the court system doesn’t see it that way.

The feeling was incommunicable in words. There was an inseparableness that I felt that I only experienced online until this point. I’ve seen past rally’s and protests and knew people of all economic and racial backgrounds were there. I even knew about the global support for Ferguson and Eric Garner, with the different hashtags #crimingwhilewhite, #blacklivesmatter, #Icantbreathe, but to witness first hand and be a part of the warm fellowship left me in state of awe.

I was surprised by this generation’s resilient and remonstrance spirit. All I have been told and thought is since first hearing about Michael Brown, is that this was gonna wash over America and end in a another church hymn with the packaging of we shall overcome during a pastor’s congregation meeting. This generation, to me now shows the spark of the young Malcom X’s, Martin Luther King’s, Cesar Chavez, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Stonewall Inn protests for Gay Rights. I was also humbled by the compassion of the buildings and businesses on the streets we marched on. Many of them held signs and banners that gave this movement life, “#BlackLivesMatter” and the diversity among the crowd couldn’t have been a better representation of what this country should stand for more often.

I remember feeling like since we’re all here for once cause, then I surely can stand up for another cause, even if it was not my own. I don’t have to be gay to stand alongside someone who is and fight for them. I don’t have to be an immigrant to know that they also deserve to be treated better in this country. During the marching and chanting, it become a jovial occasion, realizing the power of force and the message we are sending around the world and to Washington and every political office in this country, that change is coming, so either help us do it or get thrown out of office for someone who will.

I saw mother pushing baby strollers and fathers holding their children on their heads so they could see the signs and helicopters passing over us. I saw old, young, any color of race and nationality and sexual orientation. I saw some Latino sisters and brothers chanting along with us in Spanish and with a sign written in Spanish, which I couldn’t make out entirely, but I did see one part I recognized #Alllivesmater!

There were moments of silence, but the energy never wavered, even after hours of walking and I really didn’t even know where we were going, but I wasn’t going to stop. A gentleman finally told we were heading for the first precinct. “What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now”, “I Can’t Breathe” were also very powerful outcries in the crowd. One man who introduced himself as David asked to interview me during the march. He asked a couple of questions about me and why I was there to support and if I have any personal stories that fit the profile of being discriminated against. I told him the story of being pulled over at 2am for a broke license plate light, that ended in a 35 dollar ticket. I didn’t know about a license plate light to know I needed one at the time. I know it wasn’t a story that ended in a violent beating with night sticks or even getting shot over it, but I felt they pulled me over because I was driving while black through a prominently rich white neighborhood on my way home from work.

By the end of the day I was tired, hungry, cold and had been holding myself from going to the bathroom for almost four hours, but I didn’t want to leave. It wasn’t until I reminded myself that I had to work later that night, that I finally trotted back to the subway to make it for my shift. I don’t know if anyone took pics of me, since I didn’t have a camera phone, but I recorded audio of the event on my phone. I plan to go to at least two more protests this year. My agenda this year now to support the fight against climate change and a wage increase.

With the midterms just a day away I thought it might be a good time to bring up a topic that really doesn’t get much media attention as it should. Whoever you were going to vote for or have voted for in the past was probably because of some key areas you sided with your candidate. The public usually chooses candidate based on the issues that matter to them. If an election team can show you in comparison to another candidate’s their likability in certain areas that are also coextensive to yours than you more likely to vote in favor of the person whose interests you share. Simple, right? No one doubts the polls and charts and graphs that are totally accredited.

Polls s

The agency GCHQ according to The Intercept has tools that can manipulate internet traffic and spread preselected messages across social media. Documents provided by Edward Snowden show how GCHQ has the ability to plant false stories and accusations into the internet , tweaking the results of online polls, inflating pageview counts, and censoring videos that are deemed extremists.The information provided below was provided by ZDNet:

— Astral Projection: Remote GSM secure covert Internet proxy using TOR hidden service

— Poison Arrow: Safe malware download capability

— Airwolf: YouTube profile, comment and video collection tool

Birdstrike: Twitter monitoring and profile collection

Glassback: The technique of getting a target’s ISP address by pretending to be a spammer and pinging them; the target does not need to answer

Miniature Hero: Active Skype capability; a provision of real-time call records (SkypeOut and SkypetoSkype) as well as bidirectional instant messaging and contact lists

— Photon Torpedo: Technique to actively grab the ISP address of an MSN messenger user

— Spring-Bishop: Finding private photos of targets on Facebook

— Bomb Bay: The ability to increase hits to websites, thereby increasing rankings

— Burlesque: The ability to send spoofed SMS messages

Gestator: The amplification of a given message, usually a video, on popular multimedia sites like YouTube

— Scrapheap Challenge: An amazing tool used to spoof emails from Blackberry targets

— Sunblock: The capability to deny functionality to send/receive email or view material online

— Underpass: This can change the outcome of online polls (it was previously known as Nubilo)

— Warpath: The mass delivery of SMS messages to support an Information Operations (PSYOPS) campaign

— Husk: A secure, one-on-one web-based dead drop message platform

The document then quotes: “fully operational, tested and reliable,” adding, “Don’t treat this like a catalogue. If you don’t see it here, it doesn’t mean we can’t build it.” Further, the document notes: “We only advertise tools here that are either ready to fire or very close to being ready.”

In 2012 Facebook increased the number of hard news feeds at the top of almost 2 million of its users. This was done three months prior to Election Day. As a result, voter turnout and engagement was at an all time high. There was an experiment based on adding the “I’m Voting” button to a user’s feed. Out of the 61 million users, a group of 600,000 users were shown the button, but not the info if their friends had voted and the results they found were that 20 percent of the users who saw their friends using the I voted button also would use the button as opposed to 18% who didn’t get the I voted message from their friends. The study also concluded that Facebook increased voter turnout 340,000 of .14 percent of the total voting age population in 2010.

manipulation

9 million people clicked on the button on election day back in 2012. There are no stats on the effect of Facebook on the election turnout,but it did introduce another kind of polling. Academics and Facebook scientists revealed that they altered the emotional content of 700,000 users news feeds. The data showed that the user would likely post four more negative words per 10,000 written after one positive post was removed from their feed. The public should be fearful since Facebook can use algorithms and data to manipulate people in ways they don’t understand. Sociologist Zeynep Tufecki calls this learning how to “engineer the public” without public knowledge. There are not protocols in place for Facebook to be transparent so these tactics may have already played out in past elections and upcoming ones as well.

Statistics can be made up on the spot. 86% to be exact, according to truthpizza.org and the other 24% can be misleading. It seems that the sampling can play a huge role in statistical manipulation. If you take five people and ask them about Barack Obama and they have really nothing flattering to say about the current President of the United States then based on those five people a poll can say Barack is not well liked. What I didn’t tell you is that these five “random” people were chosen based on their bias views on the President. They were pre-selected based on their past voting behavior which was most likely conservative republican, who voted against Barack in the past. So don’t let the polls fool you. Another concern is about generalization in statistical polls. Some false generalizations may come from a stat that is used when, for example, ask another 5 random people (for real random this time) and you find out of the 5, 3 people think education is the most important issue in the election. Based on that it would be safe to assume that a majority of the whole out of the pool you sampled from also think education is the most important issue, when in fact it could have been number three on the list. See how that works!!!!

We also have to take into account poll questions that can be misleading as well. If I ask you, “Do you think it’s fair to increase taxes to help the moochers get more in welfare money? Hmmm, what would say? Suppose I asked you the same question this way. “Do you think it’s fair to increase taxes to help the homeless, veterans, disabled and less fortunate? What answer would you say now? Get my point? So clearly it’s how the questions are asked that makes a difference. Another way would be asking multiple questions from one side of an argument, then asking the poll responder about the same issue. This can also influence poll responses favorably or unfavorably.

Polls

It can also be misleading using factual information. How can that happen? Let me explain If tell you taste testers say an increasing number of people believe Burger King has the best tasting french fries. Then, someone else says there’s an increasing number of people who believe Wendy’s has the best tasting french fries. You might think, both can’t be true, wrong. If I increase the survey responders than the original than poll before me and notice a 30% increase in survey size and they both have a noticeable difference in size of people who like their product it’s a win win for both fast food companies. You also take this group of stats.

January $ .76
February $ .54
March $ .51
April $ .63
May $ .80
June $ .91
July $ .76

You could easily say from March to June the prices jumped from .51 to .91 cents or an increase of 78%… Zooooinks!!!!! That’s a lotIf you include the whole, you’ll find that there is no increase. Other, aversion, you need to look at is if someone points out a ranking, such as he’s the second highest paid actor in Hollywood. They never really state that if an actor get revenue from the film alone or has a hand in writing it as well or producing the film. Watch those ranking stats. If I say Tupac was the greatest musical artist to come out of California. You might take me seriously since I said musical artist, but there many more types of musical artist than just hip hop. Qualifiers can be misleading as well. Last using percentages instead of actual number can work for or against the narrative. If I say 27 urban males were killed this year due to violence in my town. If I say 6% of urban males in my town were killed due to violence you can sense the difference. Now what if I said that the time span for the measurement was over ten yrs, doesn’t that alter the polls?

The moral of the story is that these polls and statistics we put emphasis on can be misleading.

Since the beginning of mankind there has been very two distinct roles for human beings. Women had the role of childbearing, care givers, keeping house, cook and sometimes educator. During the hunter gatherer time period men were the main providers of food. They would catch and kill wild game and teach their children what plants and wildlife was safe to eat. Around 1.8 million years ago this was the way societies were run. For hundreds of thousands of years, this worked, until technological advancements made it capable to build dams and wells to keep running water a vital component to survival. With the ability to navigate and steer the flow of water, it was made possible to build towns, cities, economic systems in place where you can buy and trade goods. I know you’re like thanks for the brief history lesson,but where is this going?

man pic 1

My point is once we became able to build up civilizations and left our hunter gatherer ways for the industrial age that’s when the gender roles started to unravel. Men no longer expected to hunt for food and teach their young. You had supermarkets and schools for that. Women started advancing in the workplace steadily after the World Wars. Recently, we’ve had more acceptance with gay rights in American society, which is a good thing. I wonder though, that the trade-off for the heterosexual male to accept women and gays in modern society is to slowly chip away at the idea of the alpha male and make it obsolete. Let me explain

During the hunter-gatherer time you were regarded as a man when you able to become the protector of the family and feed them as well. Today, in modern society you are considered a man when you move out on your own, pay your bills and have a job with a livable wage. The issue with this, is there are less and fewer jobs that can provide sufficient income. Fewer men are moving out on their own in their twenties and postponing this right to passage until their 30’s and sometimes 40’s. It’s also not cool to have facial hair or any excessive amount of hair on a man. Men need to be clean-cut a shave to make it in today’s business world. The only time you see a man wearing a beard is usually in a movie when the main character has “let himself go”. They’re usually getting over a drunken night and in some ratty apartment. Somewhere between the neanderthal and the modern age man, facial hair became taboo.

Jobs

The job market has changed significantly over the last couple of hundred years. During the early stages of America, men would usually handle the construction work, police work, firemen and other hard labor. Today, a good job is behind a cubicle or in staff meetings eight hours a day. The participation rate of men 25 to 54 is 97.7% in the workforce. In rate steadily dropped to a record low of 88.4% in 2012. Median wages earned by American men between the ages of 30 and 50 dropped by 27% after accounting for inflation.

Males account for 70% of all D’s and F’s in public schools, while also spending an average of 13 hours a week on video games adding up to over 10,000 hours of video games by age 21. Also, SAT scores have been the lowest ever in 40 years for young men and only 43% of men are enrolled in college. I just feel like the alpha males have become rejects of society and the dominant accept type of males are usually the nerdy, non-athletic, metro-sexuals. They’re usually non-violent and non-threatening and thirty to forty years ago they would be outcasts.

Clothing

In hip hop, there is no escape from society’s pressure on change on males to become more andr0gynuous. More artists are wearing skirts, skinny jeans that looks like it could cut off circulation anywhere in your leg. Rappers like Kanye West, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Diddy have all been seen wearing a skirt and other women’s clothing. Not to mention that Lil Wayne and Birdman have been seen kissing on a few occasions, but still hold onto the notion that they are completely straight. I don’t get it. To add onto that an aspiring artist name Young Thug reportedly called Birdman his lover on instagram and wears dresses and paints his finger nails.

Marriage

Women 35 to 39 years old are 6.4 times more likely to keep their husbands last name. It seems women who are younger than 35 are most likely to keep their own name.

In conclusion

It seems that the beer drinking, physically strong, vocal males have been watered down and no longer have a voice. Even the action movies are steering towards picking actors that are not the traditional tough guy. Shia Lebouf was in 3 Transformers movies and he’s not the ideal action hero you think of saving the day along with mountain sized machines. Shows like Scorpion on CBS, The Mentalist, Person of Interest and others shows that highlight the intellectually gifted over the brawn muscles and high sense of morality that often clashes with protocol.

Some people want a pretty lie instead of the ugly truth. I get it, for a lot of years I accepted things that were explained to me as a kid. I trusted the sources, whether they were family members telling me what they were taught as children. Teachers whose job it was to cram the material down your throat and absorb the humdrum so you could pass a test or gather research for a paper that was due. I really didn’t learn the underlining truth until after I left school and felt the need to answer some questions that didn’t make sense to me.

 

Adam and Eve Dilemma 

In the bible the universe is only about 6,000 years old. I don’t know why, but this has been the subject of debate for a long time. I believe in science and I believe the Earth is over 3 billion years old and that mankind has only been around for a couple hundred years. This notion as well as the big bang theory was up for debate and argued by Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ken Ham, whose perspective was directly for the idea of creationism.

black Adam and Eve

Another piece of scientific evidence that can be used to debunk the creation of man came from a single woman and man was found in a man’s DNA that ties his lineage back over 300,000 years ago. I found an article in The MadMan Chronicles and it details that a man’sDNA from South Carolina has Y chromosomes that predates the earliest homo sapiens fossils. Discovery News and Science Direct found the dilemma when the volunteer’s DNA sample could not be verified by during a National Geographic Genographic Project. The base pairs to choose from were over 240,000. When the search led to a Mbo connection the project came to a conclusion the idea of a single man and woman creating the human race based on that the Y chromosome was part of a family tree.

Who is the real face of Jesus?

Jesus              Jesus is black                Black Jesus

If you saw your face as the reflected  image and embodiment of Jesus Christ, how much closer to omnipotence would this make you feel? Also, subconsciously how would you look your race? Would it make them godlike as well? These are the questions we need to ask ourselves when we look as pictures of the Lord and Savior. Up and until about 31 BC Jesus was worshipped in this original form, shape and sin complexion, which was not the blue eyes and white skin known today. The tribe of Judah was known to the Hebrews and a dark skin nation, which Jesus was known to have come from. Proof of this has been found on wall carvings in the catacombs of Rome, where a painting of Jesus who was beardless, dark-skinned with short hair was shown. Often his likeness could be found on paintings, carvings and scultpures.

Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo were in competition to win the approval of the King, Pope Alexander VI. Christianity was taken over by Europe at this time and the King had every image of the black Jesus destroyed and the Vatican was remade. Still the King needed a symbol that would lead the countries into the new world of the faith. Leonardo, who knew this and also knew the Pope loved his son Cesare Borgia. Leonardo created a painting of Cesare passed off as Jesus Christ and therefore created the falsehood story that a long-haired, blue-eyed European could somehow been the creator of the Christian faith. Cesare himself had a controversial past, he had a sexual relationship with his sister, and was also blamed for the murder of his own brother Giovanni Juan Borgia. Cesare Borgia was also a mass murderer and homosexual.My skin upon is black upon me.(Job 30:30)

The King James Version

King James Version

What can I say about this one. Oh, I know King James is not who he seems to be. Honestly, I was probably the most surprised when I did the research on him than anyone else on this blog. King James of Scotland/England I wanted to make his own version of the bible. One that was denied to the common people unlike the Geneve Bible that was for everyone’s use. The KJB was for government publication solely because of the “divine right of Kings” taught to him by his mother Mary Stuart aka Bloody Mary. King James was notably to the product of adultery since Mary Stuart had an affair behind her husband’s back, King Henry. David Rizzio an Italian secretary was King James father by birth. He was executed by King Henry after he learned of the affair.

Mary had many affairs behind her husbands back and often tried to kill him as well. She tried to kill him in a gunpowder explosion, but when he survived, he was mysteriously suffocated that same night. Mary was to blame for her husband’s death and put death herself by Elizabeth I of England who was her cousin. Charming family right!!!!! Before her death, Mary got the name Bloody Mary because during her reign she executed another cousin Lady Jane Grey to avoid any power struggle between them. She executed hundreds of protestant leaders with the intent to turn the church back into Roman Catholicism. To her being a protestant was a “crime” punishable only by death.

Remember, that was the mother who was a psychopath murdering, adultrist. Her son was not far behind. King James authorized the publication and production for the King James Version of the Bible, which was translated from Greek and Hebrew to English. While he didn’t hover over the authors of the new bible he did, however, provide rules they had to follow during the translation.

1.      The ordinary Bible read in the church, commonly called the Bishop’s Bible to be followed and as little altered as the truth of the original will permit.

2.      Or, since the common people preferred the Geneva Bible to the existing government publication, let’s see if we can slip a superseding government publication onto their bookshelves, altered as little as possible.

3.      The old Ecclesiastical words to be kept, viz. the word “church” not to be translated “congregation,” etc.

4.      That is, if a word should be translated a certain way, let’s deliberately mistranslated it to make the people think God still belongs to the Anglican Church — exclusively.

5.      No marginal notes at all to be affixed, but only for the explanation of the Hebrew or Greek words, which cannot without some circumlocution, so briefly and fitly be expressed in the text.

witch trials                                         witch trials again

The part that is more troubling is that King James was in fact a homosexual. It seems odd, the one who authorized the KJB like kissing young boys and men more than women. His conduct was documented in books like James I: The Fool As King and King James-VI of Scotland/I of England. He was nicknamed by the townspeople Queen James to mock his sexual relationships. In his teenage years James had a relationship with Esme’ Stuart, Earl of Lennox, which was not accepted by church leaders who forced Esme’ to flee Scotland. King James also kissed Francis Stewart Hepburn and was known to have a sexual relationship with him as well. King James also had affairs with George Villiers, and called Villiers his wife as well.

Another oddity about James was he enjoyed killing animals and would roll around in their blood for fun. It was rumored that he also practiced bestiality on the animals while they were dying. He would sanction witch trials and enjoyed the torture and killing of women whom he thought practiced witchcraft. When a jury acquitted Barbara Napier for witch craft, King James was so angered by the verdict, he wrote to the court to have the jury sentenced to death. Ironically, they reversed their decision and Barbara Napier was put to death.

The North Berwick witch trials started in 1589 by King James back in Scotland. An estimated 4,000 to 6,000 people were executed during the trials. King James published a book that was meant for defense against witches. Daemonologie  was three books used solely to hunt, capture and kill witches. They also discussed possession, demons, were-wolves, fairies, ghosts and necromancy.
