“Is bacon really killing us?”

March 2, 2018

Yes, bacon really is killing us:

Decades’ worth of research proves that chemicals used to make bacon do cause cancer. So how did the meat industry convince us it was safe? By 

And then, all of a sudden, the bacon sandwich stopped being quite so comforting. For a few weeks in October 2015, half the people I knew were talking about the news that eating bacon was now a proven cause of cancer. You couldn’t miss the story: it was splashed large in every newspaper and all over the web. As one journalist wrote in Wired, “Perhaps no two words together are more likely to set the internet aflame than BACON and CANCER.” The BBC website announced, matter-of-factly, that “Processed meats do cause cancer”, while the Sun went with “Banger out of Order” and “Killer in the Kitchen”.

It is just Pope’s opinion. Jesus did not say anything like that. Pope should have quoted something from Jesus in support of his assertion.

“Evolution Of The Devil”

Paarsurrey says:

It is a wrong notion. The source of truthful revealed religion is “Revelation” from the One-True-God whatever the religion. The Buddhism and the Hinduism or Christian or Judaism scriptures don’t have presently the original Revelation  intact with them , to infer from them the “Evolution of the Devil” cannot be correct. To get the correct concept one should read Quran.

Buddhism in America

January 28, 2018

Just to introduce a good article on the subject:

“At the same time, early scholars of world religions such as Paul Carusmade Buddhist teachings readily accessible to Americans. He published The Gospel of Buddha, a best-selling collection of Buddhist parables, a year after attending the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893. This was the first time in modern history that representatives from the world’s major religions came together to learn about one another’s spiritual traditions.”

“The Christian Right’s Relentless Assault on Public Education”

“The Christian Right’s Relentless Assault on Public Education”
JANUARY 22, 2018 BY ED BRAYTON

Patheos- Nonreligious: Read more at http://www.patheos.com/blogs/dispatches/2018/01/22/christian-rights-relentless-assault-public-education/#8brcTSB3WC7tYGGY.99

I have read the above article and have noted the following points:

  1. All people have inherent worth and equality and are ‘endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights,’” Zahn said.
  2. “These foundational and historical American values did not spring from the cornucopia of ‘world religions,’ but specifically from the Judeo-Christian scriptures.”
  3. But in reality, those ideals required a rejection of historical Christianity as it was conceived up to that point for hundreds and hundreds of years.
  4. Those ideas came largely from Enlightenment humanism and their opposition came primarily from the churches. It was only long after they were adopted almost universally that Christianity was redefined and they claimed credit for what they had rejected for centuries.
  5. considering a billto allow old-fashioned creationism in science classrooms as an alternative to the teaching of evolution.

I have my reservations on the above points and I intend to comment on them on the above website and give them here also for the readers.

All people born in this world without exception have worth and are equal as human being. It is a global truth. Religion, whatever religion it is, they have a right to claim that these have been endowed by God. The Atheist could deny it as their own right. Right, please?

Religion 

I also have a section dedicated to religion – Christianity in general. YES, it does belong in the fantasy category too!

I have written the odd article over the last few years. If you’re a fundamentalist Christian they’ll probably bring out the so-called righteous anger of God in you… either that or you will block your ears as so many Christians do and shout out “I can’t hear you, I can’t hear you!” or make silly claims that I’m misrepresenting the bible when I’m not. If you’re an atheist or agnostic you’ll be sure to get plenty of chuckles. If you’re none of the above, then hopefully they will at least give you food for thought.

Isn’t Muhammad the “Paraclete”/”Comforter”/ “Spirit of truth*” Jesus foretold?

November 14, 2017

So Muhammad and the Qur’an would be that other “comforter” that “allon paraklēton” and by happening in the year 632 CE, which is the end of 600 years which marks the beginning of a 700th century Sabbath, and God does seem to embrace numbers as significant markers.
The “*spirit of truth” is what matters, and the Qur’an does make correction where Christianity had already gone astray.

But not doctored to the extent that it debars some Muslims from claiming that it predicts Muhammad. When John says that Jesus will send ” allon paraklēton,” another Paraclete from heaven, some construe this as meaning, seven centuries later, an Arab trader will be that very messenger. So John has his uses.

Did Paul elevate Jesus by giving Jesus a fictional god-head?

November 13, 2017

Paul elevated Jesus by giving Jesus a fictional god-head from the fictional expression that Jesus died on the Cross and was raised from the dead.

Does one mean the *Pauline-Christianity, please?
If yes, it does not belong to Jesus or his true teachings. Jesus never started a religion called “Christianity”, it was:

~ started by Paul with a fictional vision when Jesus along with Mary had gone out of Judea lest he is caught and killed again.
~Paul doctored the anonymous Gospels and named them after Jesus’ disciples only to mislead Jesus followers from Jesus.
~Paul elevated Jesus by giving Jesus a fictional god-head from the fictional expression that Jesus died on the Cross and was raised from the dead.
~Paul propagated that Jesus had fictionally ascended to heaven and sat on the right hand of God.
~Paul fictionally propagated that Jesus died on the Cross to save the sinful Pauline-Christians from sins/death. How could one who could not save himself from the “fictional death”, could save others.

Jesus had got nothing to do with the teachings of Pauline-Christianity, please.
Right, please?

Quran corrects and brings forth the true teachings of Jesus and Mary, that Jesus believed in and acted upon. So, Muhammad is the truthful corrective prophet/messenger of One-True-God and serves the Jesus’ followers to revive and reform their religion, please. Right, please?

Hmmm. Ok. So tell me then — what would motivate Paul to do that ? Do you choose to discard God’s mercy and grace thru Christ so easily which is God’s gospel message thru Paul?

paarsurrey1 wrote:

Paul had no message of One-True-God’s mercy and grace with him, neither from One-True-God nor from Jesus.Paul was an enemy of Jesus and his followers and he remained as such when Jesus migrated from Judea. Paul only changed his strategy. He changed the message of One-True-God and corrupted the teachings of Jesus. Paul did it very cleverly aide by his associates and the Church established by him in the name of Jesus-Christ. Jesus never established any Church, he was a Jewish Prophet and remained as such, please.
Isn’t it strange, please?
