Is this the end... Do you beleive

In recent times we are being told these are the End Times and Armegeddon is around the corner. And I guess to some degrees they could be right: When the human race as a species are hell bent on killing each other, global warming appears to be like a organism in its death throws, viruses and illness designed to kill, illness resistant to treatment and the list goes......

A few hundred years ago people thought the signs where there when black death came and ran rampent throughout Europe but we did survive and continue.

But something tells me these days are different.....

I am curious to know what you think

Are we in the myst of Armegeddon?
Are the signs there for the End days?
And is there any hope to change the outcome?
If so would you?

How to stop Religious Extremism

Ok! this is a very simple plan it only involve religious groups any and all forms of religion not the Terrorism which is government based for the solution to How to Stop Terrorism please go to :

Otherwise please continue your journey here:

It seems that the rest of the problems within the world, stem one form or another from religion, not faith and this needs to be said.... it is not faith that is the problem, it is the religion. After all I have never heard a Tree Hugging New Age Spiritual Healer say believe what I tell you, my God is better than yours and if you don't believe in the new word I am telling you, 'I am going to tie you a tree and burn you alive,' have you.... you see the the Tree Hugging New Age Spiritual Healer has faith in what they believe but no religious doctrine to base it on.... there is no good book which gives instructions and which can be blamed....

So I propose in order solve all the Religious in fighting, the radical religious groups, the reborn religious movements, religious fundamentalism and any and all forms of religions:
be BANNED..... for crimes against the rest of us.

You see if I believe what I want and what feels right to me, and you believe in whats feels right to you, and your neighbours have there own belief which feels right to them although they may be different beliefs in various ways, there can be no uniform forms of worship, no book to blame, no one to be single out as heretic and no political gain......

The Vatican would have to release all of their treasures to the various museums, the wealth of the churches would be returned to people, the holy land disputes would no longer have an argument.

The argument of God gave us this land would no longer stand because whose god would that be.... God on our side would have the same problem.... this does not mean you could not have faith but it would allow you to have unpressureded faith in what you chose to believe without church groups, minority and majority religious organisations trying to manipulate political parties to suit their own needs.....

The law of the land would be a standard moral code based on morals and not religion.

Well what do you think?

Only a true friend could ....

'True' Friendship - None of that Sissy Crap

Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good,
But never actually come close to reality?
Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.
You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card-
Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship

1. When you are sad -- I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against
The sorry bastard who made you sad.
2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.
4. When you are scared -- I will rag on you about it every chance I get.
5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much Worse it could
be until you quit whining.
6. When you are confused -- I will use little words.
7. When you are sick -- Stay the hell away from me until you are well Again.
I don't want whatever you have.
8. When you fall -- I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.
9. This is my oath.... I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask;
'because you are my friend'.
Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it,
But only you can feel the true warmth.>>

A Little Helpful Advice

The mayonnaise jar & two cups of coffee

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle,

When 24 Hours in a day is not enough,

Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.
When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.
He then asked the students if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the Jar.
He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full..

They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He asked once more if the jar was full.

The students responded with an unanimous "yes."

The professor then produced two cups of coffee From under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand.
The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided,

"I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things - God, family, children, health, friends, and favourite passions -- things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, house, and car.

The sand is everything else -- the small stuff.

"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued,

"there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.

The same goes for life......

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Play With your children. Take time to get medical checkups.

Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18.

There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

"Take care of the golf balls first -- the things that really matter.

Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee
represented. The professor smiled.
"I'm glad you asked". It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,
there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

What if????

There is a question often possed by philosophy professors about the way we view the world. It goes something like this:

If the world of dreams was in actually the real world and our waking state was in reality the world of dreams?
How would you know the difference?

What do you think?
If you dream you are falling are you?

If you dream of winning the lottery did you really?

If you are chased by little green men were you?

Oh my Lord I cannot take the seriousness of it. This religion thing is way to serious to keep anyones attention for long.....
So here are words of advice and some helpful hints for us all to use in day to life and our prays enjoy:

Lord Help Me to Be The Person My Medication Wants Me to Be.

Lord Help Me to Be The Person That the Voices Tell Me to Be

Why is it when we talk to God we are praying, but when God talks to us we are put into the loony bin?

Don't think God has a sense of humor? Look at the platypus

My husband and I divorced over religious differences. He thought he was God, and I didn't

God Is Coming And Boy Is She Pissed

God is not dead. He just couldn't find a parking place

God must love stupid people, he made so many

The Big Bang theory: And God said 'Pulleth my Finger'

Heaven doesn't want me And Hell is afraid I'll take over

The more you complain, the longer God lets you live

The way I drive, I've gotta have Faith!

I'm not lazy, I'm just practicing for the here-after

I’m an agnostic dyslexic insomniac that lies awake all night wondering if there really is a dog

Church in Politics

Should there be church and religion in Politics?

In Australia we are starting to see Pentecostal Churches taking an active roll in Government with both Parties lining up to show just how faithful they are.
The claims for this upsurge in faith based politics is much the same as in America, with family values being the main component.
Can we examine this a little further and give a open eye to the family value claim of churches, no denomination in particular.

1. Family orientated: In several christian faiths, require the priest to be celebrate, not married so as to dedicate their life to God and or the faith. Others segregate men and women and children while attending mass or pray. Some of these require women to be down graded in social standings and others require women not to be priest but nuns and also remain celebrate. Therefore their family experience in today's world is based on what they see and their upbringing not experience within there own which we all understands counts for alot.

2. Safe and Nurturing environment: The various faiths have long preached a safe environment in which children can be placed to learn the values instilled within the holy books all faiths follow.....
We are increasingly becoming aware of children being manipulated within these groups into hard line fanatics, each one taught to believe the other is evil..... Although the children within the groups appear safe from physical harm the mental issues as they grow are becoming more and evident.

3. Moral Standings: This is big, As anyone who has attended a church meeting would tell you. All Holy books are full of stories which give guidelines to live your life by. Having been to Sunday school and read a few of these books in my search, I must say the Ten Commandments and others to me are common sense.... we all understand you should kill someone, you shouldn't haven't an affair with someone Else's partner, you should treat people as you want to be treated etc.... these lessons have been around longer than any Holy book discovered so far.
The issue of moral values also comes into question in a big way with the allegation of child abuse by faithful members of most denominations....

4. Understand of differences: This one takes into account understanding towards.... cultural, Social, economic, gender, sexuality and general beliefs. So here goes:

Cultural: Most faiths regard there purpose while on earth as one of conversion. Converting people, societies and country into one united faith ... theirs....most faiths do not take into account the peoples cultural background. For evidence of these just look at the crusades, Inquisitions, and the Catholic - Prodestants battles of recent times.

Social: This one the faiths do seem to help with and several of the long recognised faiths doing a terrific job in helping those less fortunate.... in countries with extreme poverty they play a major part in helping the population.... however in the same countries the conversion rate in also quite high.

Economic: Apart from the faiths above there is a growing number of religious groups which hold money and its pursuit, high on their ladder with people from high economic backgrounds being sort after. These also preach that God wishes them to be rich, accumilating wealth is among his teaching, send money to the church to show your faith etc....
examples of these can be seen in everyday Evangelists, the Pentecostal Churches and various others.

Gender: Well in most faiths if your a male you seem to have more rights than if your female, your social standing and place within the group can be far more advanced if you a male.
A womens place is with the children and looking after her husbands needs.

Sexuality: There is in almost all faiths an intolerance to people who are homosexual. This seems to be an issue more based on fear than fact. The christian churches stance on this subject has been more than unsympathetic in all areas. In the other faiths you very rarely hear of the subject as it is frowned upon and punishments can be quite severe.
This form of intolerance in this day and age should be unheard off.

Given the fact that more people are pulling away from mainstream churches and religions is it relevant to have such groups penitrating our very government with their own views on how the rest should live our lives. I do feel the subjects of religion and politics should be kept quite separate, introduce religion into the political arena and you open a hornets nest of issues and problems which really shouldn't be there.

So given the above thoughts and understandings how can any government regardless of the country or the majority faith contemplate bringing any form of faith into politics.....
If a government is to be Fair and Just to all its people makes it impossible to be either fair just our importial this thought of this happening in any country should be to say the least a frightening prospect to all...
What if it isn't your faith that wins government.

Which God

Which God is the right God?

I thought I would try this praying thing everyone talks know 'I pray to God and he/she lifts my spirit and the worry goes away'

So after organising my thoughts and studying the how toos.....I sat myself down to try this strange task......

Then like a bolt from the blue (maybe God) the question came 'which God.?'

It was like a switchboard operator asking for the number to connect me too. So I hung up on the connection and pondered this:

'Do I want the Catholic, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, Hindi, Penticostical, Baptist, Scientology, Greek Orthodox, Pagan Earth, New Age, Ancient Roman, Ancient Greek, Ancient Egyptian, Sun, moon or Universal God?'

As you can see there is quite a list of Gods through the ages so which one should I try to talk to.....

I ask a friend of mine they are spiritualist, the advice was 'which ever one feels right to you!' oh crap what a cop out, that is the problem I have no experience to base an opinion on......

So I ask you which God should I pray there just one or should I pray to all of them and hedge my bets just in case...after all if the switchboard operator is really there none of them would ever know anyway would they?
