Anti-Christ Pictures of Jesus

JesusEnebyKyrka_4893
The six-fingered, two right-handed Jesus.

This ”Salvator Mundi” (world savior) Jesus decorating the preacher’s podium assumes a standard pose made famous by Leonardo DaVinci. Thousands of similar sculptures and paintings show Jesus making a two-fingered blessing with one hand and holding a cross-topped orb in the other.

Look closely and notice that he has six fingers on his (disproportionate) right hand and that the hand holding the orb is also a right hand. Was the artist drunk when he made this sculpture? Probably. He might also have been playing a joke on the church authorities or the worshippers. This is not uncommon.

This ”anti-christ” picture, like almost all the statues and pictures of Jesus divert from his teachings and concentrate on his symbolic appearance. They render form and sacrifice content. The Bible does the opposite. The looks of the main characters are not mentioned. Their deeds and goals are described, not their appearances.

The anit-christ Jesus is a celebrity. We meet him in a type of at-home-with-God reportage. We eat his breaded flesh and drink his wined blood and make sure his teachings are not given any prominent significance. We are given symbolic flesh and blood rather than nourishing heart and soul.

While depictions of the holies and the saints continue to spread,  the Jesus:s and Marys of today throughout the world pay with flesh and blood so that empty souls and bloodless hearts can accumulate wealth. Jesus!

This was originally posted on June 24, 2013. I post it again to call your attention to the lines: “He might also have been playing a joke on the church authorities or the worshippers. This is not uncommon.”

Not uncommon? Why would they do that? Why indeed. The sculptor and the church were joined in a contract. He provided the sculpture and the church provided compensation. No religion was present in the negotiations. It was a commercial deal. It was business. Business where one part could steer the conditions from a position of strength, while the other part struggled under vulnerable circumstances. These jokes on the church (a six-fingered Jesus with two right hands), like all good jokes, carries a message beyond the smiles. This is a classic employer-employee relationship. In this case the artist is telling his peers to watch out for this church. They will ripe you off every chance they get.

Maybe.
Maybe he was drunk when he made the hands, but he wasn’t so drunk that he couldn’t make them. When he showed the statue to the church personnel, one of the nuns pointed to the hand, “It has six fingers:”
The artist: “Shame on you sister! SHAME! Repent!
Shock and confusion had heads looking this way and that.
The artist: “This six-fingered hand … and this right hand on his left arm (gasping and such are heard) are Keezelofs, they attract the eye of the devil. (a nun faints.) The person who looks for faults instead of seeing the holy is weak in faith.” (Another nun faints.)

The statue remains in place in this admirable church where the parishioners are so strong in faith that none of them seem to notice the six fingers or the right left hand.

Part 3 of Aspartame Trilogy

ColoredWindow1040855

(Note: The two previous articles contain the first two parts of the trilogy; The Love of Expert Money and Snapshot of the Empire .)

The case of winning official sanction to distribute the artificial sweetener aspartame illustrates how money dictates the course of events. Truth, health, people, environment, justice or any value considered precious to humanity has minimal influence in a conflict with money. As Donald Rumsfeld states, “Politics, not Science.” The very idea of denying science should cause people to unlock the safety on their guns. To overrule science with politics is to overrule facts with ideas, or truth with money. As preposterous as that sounds it’s now the law of the land.

Money rules and the rulers know no evil. Aspartame is still on the market and can be found in some 6000 products despite heavy science pointing out that pain, suffering and death has occurred, is occurring and will continue to occur because of its poisonous effects. Anyone responsible for this ingredient spreading among the population declares themself evil. They could justifiably be made to wear small signs such as: Certified Psychopath; Mammon’s Servant; Money’s Whore, or Greed’s Bitch.

Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners harm health, AND are unnecessary. They don’t save lives or cure ailments. We don’t suffer from not drinking sweeten, carbonated, and chemicalized water.

These sweeteners inject poison into our bodies, stress our digestive system and confuse our metabolism trying to deal with these strange molecules that don’t break down into useful elements if they can be broken down at all. What’s our biological machinery to do with all this junk?

The story of aspartame is part of the money-rules anthology of our times. The invasion of Iraq killed 100s of 1000s of people, displaced millions and cause destruction and misery on a mass scale. Just another money-rules story of our times. Vietnam is another ancient money-rules story. As is Kennedy’s assassination.

Among current stories we have: slavery in private prisons; lead-laced drinking water; police thieves and murderers; surveillance; tax-breaks for the richest; serf wages… and many, many more money-rules stories. Not to mention Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Palestine…
Yes, Palestine where the US has its largest military outpost they call Israel garrisoned by Zionist fanatics.

There are pharmaceutical stories; medical stories; food stories; academic stories; oil stories, on and on and on, all parts of the money-rules narrative. The media money-rules story pretends not to know of people-first stories. Money rules. It doesn’t want to hear vulgar people-first stories.

Yes, money rules, but respect, honesty, helpfulness, empathy, humor and the other values written into our DNA contract ferment below the prevailing (money-rules) order causing people-first stories to bubble up to the surface with promises of dramas of life, comedies of love and epics of glory.

Snapshot of the Empire

GudsPearl1050127

“We’re not going to do it scientifically this time, we’re going to do it politically.”

Let me deal with the quote before revealing the source and context. Translated into common speech it reads:
“Not with truth, but money.” (science deals with truth, politics deals with money)

The quote exemplifies a psychopath, a worshipper of money. Not truth, money! Our psychopath is locked into making money and building influence. No other issues are of concern, not truth, people, nature or the environment. He’s a hard-working, dedicated, knowledgeable and talented player who doesn’t have time to think about anything other than accomplishing the tasks he’s committed to resolve.
That’s the way it works. Not truth, money! He will do what it takes to make money.

Unlike most of the other fixers, dealers and economic hitmen, he’s at the top of the heap, a commander in the war for riches. Commanders never come anywhere near their victims. They get the job done. Should anyone point out that the results of a profitable deal can cause sickness and death and do considerable damage to 100s of 1000s of people, our commander wouldn’t recognize the charges and claim that the figures are way out of proportion. A certain amount of collateral damage occurs despite efforts to reduce them as far as possible. He says collateral damage as though talking about toilet paper.

Contempt for truth and worship of money characterizes the entire ruling strata of the land. It wouldn’t surprise me if “Money, not truth” was etched into the back of the little flag they wear on their lapel. They are the winners in a money-oriented system. Should they question their privilege, their historical victory? Of course not.

Now let’s give the quote a face and put it in a context. Donald Rumsfeld used the quote as a battle cry in his charge to defeat the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) and get the artificial sweetener aspartame approved for food and drink products. It had been turned down twice before. There was good reasons to regard aspartame as dangerous. Rumsfeld used his position to appoint his man, Arthur Hayes, as commissioner of the FDA and it no longer mattered what the scientists at FDA wanted or said. Hayes approved sweet, and deadly, aspartame despite the warnings and recommendations of the FDA scientists.

Rumsfeld used the word scientific in the quote above because he knew all about Searle’s shoddy research and the dangers of aspartame. He was the fixer. He had to know. They had never tried science. Not with the first submission or the second one. They tired fake research. It didn’t work. Rumsfeld knew that aspartame didn’t stand a chance of ever reaching the public if real science decided. The people who would be affected and even die? He didn’t care. Collateral damage can’t be avoided in war and business. The details don’t interest him. Just as it doesn’t interest his homies. Money is what they are all about and that is what this is all about.

Contempt for truth and worship of money characterizes the entire ruling strata. Rumsfeld is merely one of the flock. Kissinger, Cheney, Snyder (Flint), all the presidents and all money’s horses and all money’s men. Or, as Kurt Vonnegut wrote in one of his last pieces before he died, ”They just don’t give a fuck.”

“Fear and obedience!” the Empire cries.

The Love of Expert Money

Cymbal1050101

My granddaughter was two years old when diagnosed for (child) diabetes 1. Daily injections of insulin and continuous control of the sugar level in her blood will be necessary for the rest of her life. The shadow of death would always be in her vicinity.

I hadn’t known that there was such a thing as Diabetes 1. The hospital presented all visitors with a single sheet of paper stating that this disease was increasing by 3% a year worldwide, and that heredity factors were the most likely cause.
Heredity factors! Impossible! Heredity factors cannot increase by 3% a year. Biology doesn’t work that way.

If the information sheet had said that an increase of 3% indicates environmental factors (which it does), I would have nodded and assumed that the authorities had this thing under control. When I read the nonsense about heredity factors, I started my quest to find out what was going on.

People became irritated when I pointed out the fallacy of the authorities. Who was I to question the authorities, medical experts? I was someone with a rudimentary knowledge of biology and evolution. That’s all it takes to know that heredity factors cannot increase by 3% a year. How could authorities be so basically wrong? Before I answer that question allow me to point out that now, less than a decade later, Diabetes 1 is increasing by 5% a year and most authorities recognize environmental factors to be the main culprit.

Back to the main question. How could medical authorities have been so basically wrong? Donald Rumsfeld can answer that question.

Donald was made CEO at the G.D.Serle corporation to get the artificial sweetener Aspartame (NutraSweet) approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). It had already been rejected twice. Reports of dangerous side-effects had been turning up and G.D.Serle’s research papers were “the shoddiest ever seen anywhere.” Some of the work was judged to be criminally fraudulent. Serle was on trial for attempting to fool authorities with false reports when Donald was planning his attack to defeat the FDA. He revealed his strategy candidly, “We’re not going to do it scientifically this time, we’re going to do it politically.”

When Donald joined newly elected President Reagan’s staff, he hand-picked Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr to be the new commissioner of the FDA. Hayes went against the recommendations of the FDA scientists and even snubbed his own advisory council’s recommendation to deny approval for aspartame. He approved it anyway. And the rest is just profit and pain. Profit for a few, pain for the many. Hello obesity, diabetes and brain tumors, some of the effects of aspartame according to G.D.Serle’s own incomplete research—that they tried to bury—as well as reports from independent researchers.

So how could authorities be so basically wrong? As Donald showed, they can be bought to act politically rather than scientifically, medically or morally. The experts follow the dictates of money as prescribed by the structure of our money-oriented society. That’s it. That’s the whole deal. Science, truth, morals, justice, empathy, right and wrong or good and bad doesn’t matter. Nothing but the quest for money matters. Donald’s actions in the service of a large corporation illustrate this with deadly clarity.

Thousands of people have already died, thousands more have contracted ailments and 100s of thousands have grown obese since the introduction of aspartame in soft drinks and other food products in the 1980s. One of the reports that G.D.Serle stopped and tried to bury showed that baby mice fed with aspartame developed holes in their brains. Searle claimed that the test was stopped because of inadequate procedures and added that there was no convincing evidence that this artificial sweetener affects the brain. One of the FDA toxicologists, Dr. Adrian Gross, testified in Congress (Aug.1, 1985, Congressional Record SID835:131) that at least one of Searle’s own studies “has established beyond ANY REASONABLE DOUBT that aspartame is capable of inducing brain tumors in experimental animals /—-/ the cancer causing potential of aspartame is a matter that had been established WAY BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT.”

Those who tend to believe Searle’s claim of aspartame’s innocence will also tend to believe that the 40% increase in brain tumors since the introduction of aspartame is merely a coincidence. Another coincidence shows diabetes increasing to pandemic proportions since aspartame hit the market after having maintained a stable level of occurrence for 20 years. Please add the explosive increase in obesity as another coincidence.

The same powers and mentality that conquered the FDA had little trouble saturating the scientific community with heredity as the cause of diabetes 1 so that experts wouldn’t look for the real reasons. That worked for a while. So now we’re looking for viruses, intestinal bacteria and other biological villains plus the invisible energy waves from digital devices to explain the brain tumor increases.

It would appear as though D. Rumsfeld, the Searle corporation and Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr were willing to fatten, sicken and kill 100s of 1000s of people for money. Truth be told, that’s not the choice these people were making. They were, like thousands of their peers still are, blind to all considerations beyond money. Make the deal! Make the profit! Nothing else matters.

That’s their truth. Reality sees super hitmen, people who kill for money, lots of kills, lots of money. Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr, for instance, held degrees in philosophy, politics, economics, medicine and pharmacology. He was assistant professor of medicine and pharmacology at Cornell University, a director of clinical pharmacology at the Penn State University Medical School, Commissioner of the FDA, dean of New Your Medical College and president of EM Pharmaceuticals Inc.
And a well-paid hitman.

Donald R. and aspartame prove, ”way beyond any reasonable doubt”, that experts can be bought. That’s the way a money-oriented system does things. It buys experts as easily as a teenager buys a soda laced with aspartame and other poisons.

Editing Einstein’s Grammar

BarkDragon1040146

“Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.”
That quote is attributed to Einstein by Barbara Loe Fisher in Mercola, Nov. 7, 2017

Whether or not Albert said that, I’d like to edit it a bit for grammar and style.
“Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.”

”Never” is too extreme. We all do things against our conscience at times. Where do all of these bad consciences come from?

”anything” is extremely vague. Anything? That’s the opposite of everything and includes walking on the grass, jaywalking and thinking unauthorized thoughts.

”even if” is the weak link in this chain of reasoning. It weakens the nature of the state. We get the impression that the state makes demands on our conscience exceptionally. In contrast to that perspective, compare the following edited edition with the original:

Don’t go against conscience because the state demands it.
Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.

Not only is the edited quote sharper and more explicit, it is 18% shorter.

9 words instead of 11. Two words less. 18%. Not much? Not much! Suppose 18% of all text masses contained sentences that could be improved in clarity and save the reader 18% less time. (There’s a lot more than 18%) That’s 18 times 18 = 324%. Multiply this by millions of readers and witness the serious number of hours saved by small improvements in grammar and style.

BTW, if  we allow the two words to represent ink and carbon powder instead of time and multiply this by the printers throughout the world we should see a skyscraper of printer cartridges before us. Created by small improvements in grammar and style.

Geese and Turds

CanadaGeese-1050085

Eat grass, fertilize grass.
Manurize grass.
Black and white geese
produce black and white manure.
They look as different from each other
as you and I
and all the people we meet?
The markings from their eye to their beaks,
the line that forms between the black and white
running from the head
to the neck,
the length of the neck, beak and chest size all vary.
The geese can recognize a loved one 100 meters away.
And they can express joy
to each other.
They are doing quite well, the geese,
the grass eaters.
Can’t say the same for bats, bugs, bees and birds.
And insects.
Humanity is killing them,
more and more, faster and faster.
And other things as well
(besides each other).
Life will survive,
but not many of the species living today.
Humanity is already suffering.
Besides a catastrophic drop
in the general health standards
every member of humanity
has a contaminated body.
Our children are born polluted,
more and more, faster and faster.
Maybe if we learned to eat grass…?
(”Maybe if you learned to shit
black and white turds,”
I hear a goose say.)

All ”We” Need Is Love

MarbleCandle-1040989

All you need is love, sang the flower-power generation. Don’t worry about how you’re dressed… all you need is love. The fashion industry couldn’t keep up to the creativity of the people dressing themselves in anything that fit.

You didn’t need to get married… all you needed was love. Any kind of a party would do. We’re moving in together… all we need is love.

We need not deal with the differences between the flower-power generation and the culture of today to agree that flower-power culture was defeated and assimilated into the present Barock culture, where extravagant diversions dominate the cultural landscape.
All you need is money.

Defeated doesn’t mean wrong. The bully is constantly defeating his victims. The Age of Enlightenment was defeated by Romanticism. The Age of Enlightenment wasn’t wrong.

It’s always a question of We, Them, Me.

Who are ”We”? Humanity should fit into our We. That’s our only hope.

And ”Them”? Who are ”Them”? Them’s the Ones that got all the money and guns.

Which brings us to ”Me”. Our ”Me” is a gift of life, a present from the sun. Whether we like it or not, recognize it or not, Me is an element in community We. If we pretend that Me is a loose element, We grows weaker by one element.

The community, We, garantees individual freedom. We need look no further than the space we occupy. How much of it contains items we could have produced ourselves? How many of the items contain parts that come from lands and people far away? How many people were involved in mining, growing, manufacturing, packaging, researching, transporting, warehousing and selling the items all over the world? How many people are involved in providing us with transportation whether car or train, bus, cycle, boat or plane?

Our lives, health, freedom and standard can only be provided by the community. A healthy community is based on healthy people. By keeping all of the people healthy everyone keeps healthy. Ditto for freedom and standard. A free people raise the standard of the community to raise the standard for themselves. A healthy community works on projects to enhanced the well-being of the members of the community. A sick community takes from the community to enhance the well-being of a few super-wealthy people.

Are there any doctors in the house? Lovers?
