Noah's Flood Defined

Black Sea Flood

"The Legend: In the story of Noah’s Ark, the book
of Genesis says Noah lived during a time when all other people on Earth
were evil. God became angry and decided to create a giant flood to kill
everyone except Noah and his family. God told Noah to build a boat
called an ark, big enough for himself, his wife, his sons, their wives,
and at least two of every animal. Once the ark was built, God sent a
rainstorm that lasted 40 days. The deluge rose higher than the tallest
mountain. When the waters receded, Noah’s family and animals left the
ark and repopulated the Earth."

"The Evidence: In 1993,
oceanographers used sonar to survey the floor of the Black Sea—and found
evidence supporting the story after all. Submerged beneath the surface
were ancient streambeds, river-cut canyons, and shorelines.
High-resolution seismic reflection profiles showed a
former land surface buried in the seafloor sediments. Drill cores from
the seafloor contained roots of shrubs covered by marine mud..... over
7,000 years ago, the Mediterranean began to rise, breaching rocks along
the Istanbul Strait, a waterway that helps form the boundary between
Europe and Asia today. The event caused the Mediterranean to spill into
the Black Sea, triggering a catastrophic flood."

"Were early
farmers in the area forced to flee as their world disappeared
underwater? Archaeologists found the rising waters coincided with the
onset of the initial migration of farming cultures into Europe and the
floodplains of Mesopotamia. Wherever they came from, the first farmers
arrived in southern Mesopotamia shortly after the filling of the Black
Sea. Did they bring the story of a great flood that destroyed their

Apes Not Our Ancestors

About 18 million years ago, geologic forces in Africa up thrust a north-south mountain barrier that separated "Proconsul africanus" into two groups. Those to the west evolved into apes and those to the east into hominids that had access to the seashore and sea foods rich in amino acids essential to brain development. Primitive tool use coincided that increased procurement levels of these and other protein rich foods.
Hominids are our human ancestors.'

Welfare Is Welfare

"In America, 7 out of 10 people receive more in government benefits than they pay in taxes. Some of these beneficiaries are the poor collecting various welfare benefits including food stamps, cash assistance and Medicaid. But it's not just the poor who feed at the trough of our vast welfare state. Most seniors get far more from Social Security and Medicare than they contribute and payroll taxes. Giant corporations get $100 billion in direct payments and subsidies from the government. The military squanders billions on weapons systems it does not need in order to fund jobs in key lawmakers districts.
Conclusion: Welfare is welfare."

Spiritual Law of Non-interference

In most circumstances, it's
best to mind your own business. However, if laws are being broken,
children being endangered, etcetera, to not get involved would be wrong.

is one of the great laws of the universe that is followed always by the
beings from the higher realms. Would that it were so in the lower
realms. There is a fine line between being helpful and being
interfering. It is a very fine line indeed."

Pitbulls And Their Owners

Pitbulls have their place in the world. But the typical person is not capable of providing them with the training and level of care that they need and deserve. Therefore, I judge most (not all) Pitbulls and their owners to be a liability.

Aside from the headlines that pure Pitbulls have made, another tragedy is their being bred into the general dog population. The owners of these other dogs also share responsibility for what I regard as poor judgement. Neutering and spaying as options have an integral part in society for all animals (naked apes included).

One tragic consequence is the higher number of Pitbulls and Pitbull mixes that have to be destroyed because their owners either negligently or unwittingly did not provide their dogs with what they needed. Watch the Dog Whisperer for some insights.

I have been around all kinds of dogs and have always had one or two (usually from the pound). And because of my experience, I always avoid being too close to aggressive breeds. I also know to give any and all dogs I don't know well their space.

What I really hate is dog owners who keep their dogs on a chain instead of providing a proper enclosure.
Even worse are people who let their female dogs have puppies that they wind up dumping on the side of the road.

I partially judge a person by the canine company they keep and how well they keep it. I don't blame the dog. Them, I all too often have to feel sorry for.
