Re: “Pope at Easter Vigil: Seek Truth, Beauty and Love

Ah yes……”Seek Truth”….as defined by the catholic church, since the actual Truth may illuminate the hodge-podge of concocted beliefs that make up the fairy tale belief system that is catholicism.

The programming and indoctrination concerning this belief system, is so deeply embedded in this culture that even many non-christians find themselves contemplating the consequences of irreverent thoughts or actions on the ‘sacred’ fictional script that is called easter.

Those sheep that are fully indoctrinated into the cult might "enter the mystery", but never to the point where they become free from cult beliefs and allow enough awareness to occur that they recognize the fantasy.

“Seeking a deeper meaning”, in this case implies strongly reinforcing the concocted beliefs of the church, while resisting any clear awareness that might lead one to question the whole fictional story.

To “boldly live their faith” is exactly what resulted in the Christians persecuting, torturing and murdering millions of people since the cult was created.

A ‘bold’ move would actually be for cult members to throw off these fallacious mentally crippling beliefs and stand in the light of their own awareness, ‘free at last’ from the constricted consciousness that has been forced on them since birth.

Re: “It's a Cold, Cold World: The Lowest Temperatures Ever Recorded on Earth

You'd better finish there then, Jen-O. This MAY come as a surprise to you, but in MANY parts of the world "organisations" and "realise" are actually correct spellings... along with colour, honour, and harbour. Look beyond the 50 states of your country. Hell, all ya gotta do is just look north to your "neighbour" and find lots of other different spellings!

Re: “It's a Cold, Cold World: The Lowest Temperatures Ever Recorded on Earth

I'm enjoying your conversations and you are all obviously much smarter than myself and I'm learning a lot from this conversation......or just getting confused. But I have one suggestion for Trev, SPELL CHECK buddy. You seem like an intelligent guy....or at least your just trying to look smart. Learn to spell, it will help your case a little 😉
(OrganiZations, must not like the letter "Z") I'm sure there's more, but we'll start there.

These are the same people that won't take antibiotics, even when there life litterally depends on it. Good luck convincing them about vaccinations when they are that opposed to modern medicine.

Re: “Marijuana as Medicine: Modern Miracle or Public Health Catastrophe?

I am a MM user and I have to say to those who doubt that it is an effective pain are ignorant of the benefits that THC and CBDs have on neurotransmission. And, NO I am not stoned all the time. One of the more potent ways of taking MM is extracts prepared with oils or solvents such as alcohol. I don´t get "high" when I use these forms but I do get relief from my Ehlers Danlos symptoms that I get from NO OTHER form of drug. I have terrible reactions to pharmaceuticals as do MANY EDS sufferers so what are my options??? Would YOU live every day in EXTREME pain and suffering if you knew there was a plant you could grow that would alleviate most of it???!!! REALLY people, get the FACTS about medicinal use of marijuana and talk to some of us so called "stoners" who would rather die than live without this medication.

Re: “The 10 Safest Cities in the World

Wow, sounds like you just have a problem with porn. Do yourself a favor and stay out of Montreal. Not to mention several other amazing cities on this list have the same environmental problems. Tokyo suffered a disaster that has affected the country as a whole. Are you going to attack New Orleans too?

Re: “The 10 Safest Cities in the World

*cough* bullcrap *cough* Tokyo is safe like... you are casually browsing through the Manga pornos in Manga susper porno store then getting trapped under a shelf when 8.5 earthquake hits then drowning in the ensuing tsunami, never finding out if big membered monster ever defiles the merman that likes to cross dress on land, safe... Have they cleaned up all the radiation spills? People in Asia refuse to eat fish imported from Japan. Japanese people don't eat fish caught in Japan.

Re: “Greece Votes on Whether to Dump Austerity, Take on Lenders

"The ugly step child gets rebellious" would be a better headline. As would "Greeks consider communism" could be another. They have a corrupt government and unproductive population. Should never have been given full membership to the EU, thus not a chance they will continue to be bailed out by the motherland (Germany). I predicted in 1988 that the EU would fail. It took longer than I thought it would. At least Russia is very weak now too.

Re: “Video: The Netherlands Has a Holiday Blackface Problem

As a third generation Belgian American (Flemish too) , I can say this : Zwarte Piet has to do with the Spanish Moors , and if you really go into the history, why they were chosen was because Spanish had ruled the low lands for years and years and years. Of course in modern history, zwarte piet' face is blackened with soot because of going down the chimney, unlike in America where Santa gets dirty from the chimney.. And in America, the elves are the 'slaves' if you think about it. in the Dutch / Belgian tradition, St. Nicholas, of which the character of Sinterklaas is based upon, freed the slave Petrus, who was so thankful that he decided to serve St. Nicholas the rest of his life.
Yes, it is in a way based off of slaves but not in America... and this is a EUROPEAN history. If I go into history, then we should be as American no longer celebrate Thanksgiving because that is offensive to Native Americans, I am offended because there is a German King on the Throne of Belgium (Well yes he is Belgian now) and my ggreat grandmother was born out of wedlock in 1880 from a Belgian royal. She had to come to America because of controversy. I am part Flemish too and Flems are offended because we had have no rights and to wanted freedom for a lot of things - even today . Pagans are offended because of Christmas being celebrated on their holiday, Christmas was NEVER celebrated on the 25th as it was a Pagan holiday and back in the day, it was changed (look it up) . Point is, this is a silly thing to get all upset over when people don't know the full history. This article doesn't tell the full story about Zwarte Piet.

Re: “Five Newly Elected Leaders Who Should Really Stop Talking About Foreign Policy

This writer should stop pretending to be an objective observer and just join the Democrat Party.
And she's lazy. She doesn't check her facts clearly enough.
Not only did each and every intelligence agency in the WORLD believe Saddam had WMD, most recently Americans in Iraq at the time reported they personally picked up and delivered WMD to Bagdad Airport for disposal. I think the NY Times ran the story.

Re: “Five Newly Elected Leaders Who Should Really Stop Talking About Foreign Policy

buzzing people with fighter planes, moving troops to the border, and lazing people, while provocative are not acts of war. Ad hominem logical falacy attacks on Joni Ernst when in fact her statements have been verified as being largely factual is just plain silly.

Re: “Five Newly Elected Leaders Who Should Really Stop Talking About Foreign Policy

Welcome to the US House of Representatives. The Republicans don't have a lock on stupidity - it's been a feature of the House from the get-go. Hank Johnson and Sheila Jackson Lee come to mind on the D side. It's an equal opportunity institution.

Re: “Five Newly Elected Leaders Who Should Really Stop Talking About Foreign Policy…

Do some homework before judging. There were WMD in Iraq. Maybe not weapons manufactured under the fictional chemical weapons program we were lied to about, but there were chemical weapons that Saddam hid. Weapons that he claimed were destroyed and hid from U.N. investigators after Desert Storm.

Wikileaks has revealed there were many WMDs found in Iraq, but it was kept under wraps in an attempt to prevent insurgents in a very unstable region from acquiring chemical weapons.

If you want to take the Obama administrations definition of what a WMD is, he claimed the pressure cooker IED detonated at the Boston marathon was a WMD. There were plenty of IEDs in Iraq.
