Nearly two people die each second, according to http://www.ecology.com/birth-death-rates/.  Take a minute to contemplate that fact.  Let that idea marinate in your minds.  By the time you finish reading this sentence, approximately 16 people would have died either because of murder, suicide, an accident, disease, natural causes, or other reasons.  If this is too surreal to comprehend, please go to http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ and watch the “Deaths Today” ticker.  It is quite sobering to see the number of deaths that occur every second.  After viewing the ticker for some time, contemplate on why this is happening, if you subscribe to the biblical creation account.  This constant torrent of death is occurring simply because a couple of people disobeyed God and ate from the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  According to the Bible, the simple disobedience by earths primary couple is responsible for the approximately 100 billion who have died since the beginning of time.  Is this a justifiable punishment for people who are not responsible for the first couple’s non-compliance?  Is it moral to in essence kill billions because of our primal progenitors’ godly insubordination?  Is it not more moral and understanding to think that these deaths happen because this is what occurs in evolution?  Please comment below!

Book Coming Out February 2019!

Imagine you live in a world where disease, abuse, and death do not exist, a utopia that harkens to the Elysian fields of Greek mythology.  The dead are alive, the diseased are cured, and the lame are healed.  Now return to reality and truly try to understand the quasi-dystopic world we currently live in, depending on your region. 

Here are some of the facts,  all taken from various online sources.  Nearly 700,000 children are abused in the U.S annually.  About four out of five abusers are the victims’ parents. 

With regards to diseases; About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year; that’s 1 in every four deaths.  There were approximately 36.9 million people worldwide living with HIV/AIDS in 2017.  A disease that has no cure and is considered a death sentence. 

With regards to terrorism, between 2006 and now, terrorist attacks occur at an average of 11,281 instances a year! 

This is only a skimming, a mere handful of the issues that afflict this world we live in.  With all of this misery that is bestowed upon humanity, what has God done to alleviate the matter?  Does he just sit there in heaven with indifference and watch us as we experience calamity after calamity?  Does he see all that we experience?  Is he aware of the deplorable circumstances we face daily? 

Isaiah 46:4 says – I am your God and will take care of you until you are old and your hair is gray. I made you and will care for you; I will give you help and rescue you.

If this is the case, where is this care from God?  Where is his rescue?  Are all of the atrocities above only committed by non-believers or immoral people?  What is God waiting for? 

Revelation 21:4 says – ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

So it looks like he will only care for you in the future but will ignore the death and suffering for now.  Also please keep in mind that while he waits for his assigned time to do away with this worlds horrors, he is watching us. 

So he sees everything that is occurring, every rape, all child molestation, everyone who is diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and every terrorist incident but does nothing?  Is this torture moral? 

I would now like to try a thought experiment with you. I want you to picture your child, boy or girl, vividly in your mind. If you do not have any children, I want you to create one, girl or boy. This generated child should be approximately between 5 – 13 years of age. You should feel true connectedness with this real or fictitious child. If this person where to be affected negatively in any way and you could watch this instance actually occur, you would surely empathize with this individual. I now want you to close your eyes and watch as this child is molested. You can’t even bring yourself to trying to create this simulation! Now, understand that for every 8 minutes, a victim of sexual assault is a child. If God can see everything but does nothing, in this instance is God truly the measuring stick of morality that we all should ascribe to?   Proverbs 15:3 says – The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.

The God that is described is The Powerless God.  He is a God that watches every negative action and fails to intervene, even though he is purported to have the power to do so.  Or maybe, maybe, this God does NOT exist, and that is why he fails to act.  This makes much more sense.  How could a moral being stand idly by and watch his creation live through such chaos?  In my estimation, God does not exist, since he refuses to intervene in the most critical of moments. 

I describe how I have come to the understanding that God does not exist in great detail in my new book, The True Nature Of Human Nature, which comes out in February 2019.  Available in Amazon.  Check it out!

If we are one of the countless family members that have dual incomes and also have children, then we are also one of the many that need the service of daycare centers. When we drop off our children, we trust that the daycare providers administer the best care for our kids. We expect that those at the top of the totem pole exercise excellent judgment caring for our loved ones. Why should we expect any less from a person of high capacity in the Catholic Church? The New York Times states that “The Justice Department has opened an investigation into Roman Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania accused of covering up sex abuse for decades, a significant escalation in scrutiny of the church…News of the subpoenas threatened to deepen the crisis faced by the Catholic Church as it struggles through a new chapter of the sex abuse scandal, which emerged out of Boston more than 15 years ago. The Pennsylvania report followed the resignation of Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, who is accused of sexually abusing seminarians and minors.” How can we feel like God has all of our needs taken cared of when the people he has anointed to be his keepers on earth are sexually molesting children! Does this not preclude the Catholic Church as the chosen religion of God? If a God actually existed, how would it allow this type of suffering to occur! Please comment below!

Faith can make a person do dangerous things to themselves and others. Like a thirsty castaway succumbing to drinking seawater and dying of dehydration, faith can make adherents succumb to doctrine. The stronger the faith, the weaker the chains that bind belief and reason in people. Now, it depends on the doctrine that a person capitulates to when appraising their danger. The article of faith that is most alarming in the Jehovah’s Witnesses religion is the ban on blood transfusions. As former Witnesses, my love for my family was recently tested when my newborn son needed a blood transfusion after open heart surgery. Thankfully we were able to override the parasite known as religion and allowed blood to save our sons life. Unfortunately, the ability to break the formidable shackles of doctrine is not typical in the Jehovah’s Witness religion. Countless hundreds of thousands of people have perished, either committing suicide by refusing blood when needed to survive or withholding this option from loved ones under their tutelage. What do you think about this detestable belief? Do you think doctrine like this should be allowed to exist if it leads to the deaths of innocent human beings? Comment below!

Hitman

Who here has played the game Hitman?  It is a third person game where you control a genetically enhanced assassin who is contracted to eliminate targets.  A hitman is a person who eradicates people who have been marked by others for death.  When thinking about this profession, who here thinks about abortion?  Not many I am sure but apparently, the Pope thinks about this.   According to the CNN website, “He asked if it was right “to do away with a human life to solve a problem,” adding: “Is it right to hire a hitman to solve a problem? One cannot do this, it is not right to do away with a human being, albeit small, to solve a problem.”

Does the elimination of a 4-week old embryo constitute murder?  The question should be phrased as “is a 4-week old embryo human and should, therefore, have the same protections as human beings?  Should law dictate what women can do with their bodies?  Should we not let the scientist formulate when a fetus becomes a human since they are the most qualified?  When do you think an embryo turns into a true human?  Please comment below!
