p10027 Check out this article on Seattle Times, it shows how to reduce your carbon footprint.
Excerpt: “ From the street, the house looks like any other in this quiet North Seattle neighborhood. But something different is going on here.The trash container at the curb is not much bigger than a shoebox. And inside the house, at 7:15 on a weekday morning, all the lights are off. It’s not because no one’s home “

Though it’s Late in The Game We Can Make Choices and Changes

 flwrsml Common Sense tells us our garbage and the burning of any fossil fuel creates a toxic environment for both mankind and our fellow inhabitants of earth. Our wasteful and somewhat lazy lifestyle is effecting not only our environment but also our lifespan. Pharmacology can only slow the decline of our health and the mortality rate. The morbid truth is Mankind’s choices and actions is leading to the extinction of both himself and his fellow creatures. The good news is that though it’s late in the game we can make choices and changes that could slow down if not reverse the damage we cause. Simple things like using a water filter versus buying water in plastic bottles or use plant based plastics like the popular snack Sun Chips has done.

  Even something as easy as changing your old standard light bulbs for the newer florescent type can save enough energy to reduce some of the carbon footprint made by power plants. Every single one of us are responsible for the upkeep and wellbeing of this planet we live on. Though a little more expensive glass is a far better container for soft drinks and other beverages, also glass is quite recyclable and isn’t as bad for the environment. Though Styrofoam is far better in its thermal properties versus paper, but Styrofoam  is far worse for the environment. Even though paper plates and cups do impact trees if we replant what we cut down and recycle what we use it would have a smaller impact on the environment. Using real dishes is the ideal solution but then who wants to take real dishes to a picnic?

There is so many ways to make changes in our lifestyles to help preserve and repair our home called earth. So I leave it up to you to find the better ways and get the news out there. If you know of any ideas to help others make a positive impact on the environment feel free to leave a comment.

Education Should Be Available For Everyone And Affordable For All Social Classes

agenda     Being humble is a very blissful and selfless way of life. Most people find trying to be humble quite hard due to the fact of the selfishness we all suffer within. To Be humble one must not be arrogant or assertive, you must accept the fact we all are equal and not divided by any type of class system. For example. a rich person may have more money than you but they are no higher or lower than you in reality it is you own perspective that makes them above or below you nothing else. The modern world seems to be hooked on labels and driven by the division between the illusion of one being above or below another. This world also seems to buy into the illusion that ones worth is based on wealth and or ones outward appearance. Money has its place in our modern world and that is to replace the bartering system so people are able to obtain food and goods for survival and existence. Money is not the root of all evil as many say it is just a means for both good and evil to flourish. The reason being humble is a good practice it gets you to see that we all are born from a mother and we all will return to the earth physically in the end. Thus no man is above nor below another even though the illusions that being rich,famous or powerful make you think your better or above others but in the end you will pass on like the poor and the less known.

  Now this is not to say that there are people who are quicker to learn or excel beyond the norm in one thing or another, it is to say that everyone is equal when you look at it from a whole. The individuality and differences between us is what makes us a unique and creative species. One person may be an exceptional painter when another may be a mathematical genius. But each and every one of us has the capacity to learn anything we desire to learn and achieve in what we desire, just some will excel is one thing faster than another. This leads me to the point I believe education should be available for everyone and affordable for all social classes. Some of the greatest minds of mankind came from lower income families and to deny anyone from furthering their education by making it unaffordable is wrong and it would effect mankind in a very negative way.

Enough Ranting for now

they were called Dragons and sea serpents

 

AN294   Being torn between science, religion and faith is the torment of the modern man. Science though sometimes factual is usually conjecture or unproven theories. So many times has the facts of science been overturn, proven inaccurate or were just plain wrong. Darwin’s theory of evolution has gaps and flawed facts and I do believe creatures evolve to some extent since there is proof out there living today, I don’t think man had came from apes. Yes Genetically we are cousins to the apes and that does not destroy my belief in Eden and the creation story.

   I don’t see why god wouldn’t create lower forms that are similar to man for us to study and learn from when science would appear. Also the Big Bang is another theory that does not conflict far as I am concerned with the biblical creation story. Now dinosaurs have been a thorn in Christians sides for a while but if one looks back across time there has been proof of dinosaurs existing during mankind’s existence though they were called Dragons and sea serpents.

Check out this video (playlist its a 6 part series) it will show you more on the dinosaur issue.

We May Become a Endangered Species

This modern world we live in is ran by the rich and built by the poor. Low wages paid for the laboring masses across the planet and millions of mind numbing time consuming gadgets to keep us from realizing what’s going on around us. Everything from Chemtrails left by airplanes that happened to coincide with the decline of honey bees  to the wars over oil and religion. Don’t get me wrong I love those little gadgets that keep my mind occupied but  they do keep me distracted allot from what is going on in the world around me. There is allot going on around us at this time we either are blind to or choose to ignore because we feel we can not  do anything about it.

  I think the mentality that we can not change things around us is one of the biggest problems we face as a world community besides the I don’t care attitude. We all should care about the world and the other inhabitants of it. We also should realize that even one voice shouting in the dark can reach the ears and minds of  Millions. The sooner we realize this is our world to take care of the more we will understand that we must make changes. Mankind has the potential and the means to make changes and the ability to reverse allot of the damage he has caused. The current Oil Disaster in the gulf of the U.S. is a terrible ecological disaster that can impact the whole planet in the long run. Though they are trying to recapture oil that has leaked into the gulf it is a painstaking and slow process. The sooner they can plug the leak and get the relief wells in place the better. Off shore oil drilling is the most dangerous way of drilling for oil yet. Oceans can carry oil for miles and miles if leaked and that puts the life forms in the ocean at great risk. If Aquatic life is diminished and or becomes a tainted food source for humans there will be global famine in our future. Too many developing nations that rely on seafood for there main source of protein / food.

All I know is mankind doesn’t wake up and start changing towards a more earth friendly society we may become a endangered species.

Who knows, The future is unwritten

  I view the world from many different perspectives only to find that even with all the deceit and sadness in this world there is still plenty of truth and hope to be found. I watch hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados and many other disasters come and destroy all in their paths. Then I see people get together to rebuild and support one another. It goes to show you that mankind still has a ray of hope and goodness within us. Of course there are always those who take advantage of the disaster for their own ill gains, but this is a small percent of the whole. There are always a few bad seeds in every community that one must be aware of. Even some of those you would think are bad seeds have proven to be good at heart in times of need. No soul is beyond redemption is my belief and I have seen so many bad seeds find the right path in the end.

The future may be uncertain for mankind but I am confident we will pull together to survive what ever comes our way. Be it here on earth, in space or under the oceans we will survive. since we are the most adaptive and one of the most intelligent species on this planet. As intelligent as a species as we are it still baffles me how we still kill each other because of religious , political and social differences. Maybe one day we will grow up enough to see how foolish it is to fight wars and kill each other. Who knows, The future is unwritten and mankind is constantly growing and learning each day that passes. I just hope mankind wont wait till it is too late to grow up and see the right path to follow.

Democrats and republicans alike are to blame

gr03   Why does it seem only the greedy and narrow minded seem to get into positions of power? Even when you have a visionary in office the rest of the government seems to stop any true progress far as the progress towards bettering the world we live in.  I hear so much anti Obama rhetoric in the news and via the internet stating how Obama is the cause of all the ills of this world. When in fact the U.S. government does not run as a dictatorship it is a government based on democracy. The Senate and the House of Representatives are the two governing bodies that write the bills and shape most of our policies here in the U.S.. The president may be commander and chief but he must go through congress in order to achieve his or her goals. The president does have veto power but even that can be overridden by congress. 

  Sure go ahead and blame Obama, But remember to blame the whole of congress both democrats and republicans alike. Though the republicans will claim innocence but they too play there part. Choosing not to act or be a part of the process they too are responsible for the bills passed. If they just could get over the party system long enough they might be able to work together to make a bill or two that is both beneficial and not full of ear marks. Democrats and republicans alike are to blame for the mess our country is in. The republican years in the white house has lead us to our financial state as well as the democrats who didn’t oppose or try and safe guard those bills passed that kept our financial institutions from acting responsibly in the past.

I really love how the republicans state how democrats are putting the nation in debt when many of the bills and legislation the republicans proposed and passed has wasted just as much of the tax payers dollars. I really think there should be term limits on a congressional seat so new blood and ideas can flow into our federal government. When they are in power too long they seem to loose their perspective and forget it is we the people they represent not their personal views or opinions. I am kind of glad to see that this is turning out to be more of a anti incumbent election year than a anti-democrat or anti-republican. We need fresh and new ideas in the congress. To put it in a nutshell not one party or the other is more or less responsible for the state our country is in at the moment. Both parties have participated in the creation of our present state and are equally responsible.

   If you want change you have to make it happen.  Write your congressman, make petitions, peacefully protest for or against that you believe in. Most importantly become active in your local and federal governments by voting and lobbying for your causes. If we are not active in the politics of our day then we are just as responsible for the outcome. If I am to be responsible for any outcome it will be one of my own choice not that of someone else’s.

 

Well that’s enough Ranting for now.
