If God’s Words are a Metaphor, surely ‘Imagine’ is also

Imagine by John Lennon is a song that will stand the test of time, no argument, it is a masterpiece. One thing that I struggle with is when people say “Why would we want no Heaven and no religion too” I don’t think this was what John was actually meaning, he sang for world peace and like Bob Marley, JFK and his Brother, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and many more who came with the same message, they were killed, or shot, every time someone with a message of Hope and Peace comes along they get killed. Jesus, the good book tells us came to Earth, he was killed, if Jesus came again, I truly believe we would kill him again. Satan runs this blue globe, we just have people who believe in God and too many Religions

There are some lyrics in his song people are offende at. NOW, When I ask a religious person who live by their chosen book about say, Noah’s Ark, we know the story is not entirely true, but there may be truth somewhere in the story, two of every Animal on a boat today would be impossible. I get told “Shaun it’s a metaphor” People dislike that line “Imagine there’s no heaven” but look right over many other lines in the song “Imagine all the people living life in peace” There are other lyrics in the song that just ask for what many want, but sadly many deny themselves and everyone else through religion. I mean two Kangaroo’s, two Elephant’s, think where the location is, we all know the ‘Noah’s Arc’ Story is impossible, even today it’s impossible, so it’s a ‘Metaphor’ Same as “Imagine there’s no Heaven”

So when people say to me “I don’t like Imagine, why would we want no heaven” I don’t get offended I get confused, not to the stage I want to cry 😀 But I see God as the way, religion was man made, so is flawed. John Lennon believed in God then stopped, he is quoted many times saying religion poisoned his soul, there is a song below, he wanted love and peace, his message was simple, his song’s a metaphor. But when he sang “Imagine there’s no Heaven or religion” REALLY, think, imagine there was not, nor religion, would the World not be a better place? His song was a metaphor, we can’t have our cake and eat it, I ask if the fear of Death makes people add religion to their lives. John also said “We measure God through our Pain” 

All I know is, for me and what I see, people turn to God in times of trouble, I do also, but I also thank God when things are going good, how many don’t do this. My mother told me “Never talk Religion or Politics” Well sadly I am very opinionated and in this blog I cover both subjects. I dislike the fact we can’t talk religion on the presumption it WILL cause an argument, if that is so, then am I right? I am asking here, I mean to offend nobody, my big ‘ol brain just got turning on this one

Religion is not the problem I said it a few blogs ago, people are. I was playing this song earlier and I remember I put it on my Song of the day once and got abuse for it, yeah abuse from religious god loving people

John isn’t saying “Imagine there is no God” IT IS A METAPHOR, he is singing about a World of peace. The exact same metaphor as most if not all of the bible, stories with a truth behind them. We can’t know the bible is true, we can only have faith in its words. If anyone can show me every word is true, bring it on. But I don’t need words to love MY God, same God you love, and to pray every day

Just Imagine a life, a world with no religion, just people loving God, now would that not be good? Also Lawyers and CEO’s, but that is another blog.  I truly believe people who dislike Imagine need to educate themselves on the meaning of the song. I ask MANY questions from many people about God and the Bible and am told “It’s a Metaphor” Also the peace sign, it’s NOT Jesus upside down on the cross, it means Nuclear disarmament People must educate themselves away from a book, I can prove this but many will believe as they do anyway, like the woman I spoke to who didn’t believe in dinosaurs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_symbols

Many times people have unfollowed me for saying these things, I think these people bring my blog to be true. To dislike someone for asking a question, well they were never a friend. If you have faith and believe every Word of your book, I respect that, but open your mind, just for a second and think away from that book. There is a saying here in Scotland “Never trust anyone with one Book” The joke I believe is or was aimed at Islam, again I have no problems with Islam, just the fundamentalists, but we have Christian fundamentalists in the Westboro Baptist Church.

frz7So I ask, if people who hate all Muslims due to fundamentalists are for real, then should everyone hate all Christians because of Westboro Baptist Church. I am asking a question and I would appreciate ADULTS debate. I may even learn something. I also can’t get my mind around people who want to talk about Gay Marriage and Abortion when the World is on the brink of war! STOP FIGHTING OVER WHO MADE THE WORLD AND US AND COME TOGETHER ON WHO IS KILLING IT AND US!! 

JFK was our last hope, our last chance. nobody will come again, he warned us and as you all know, he died 6 days after this speech

I did a blog in my old blog Prayingforoneday and someone, a woman I called a friend said “You can’t ask that, it’s stupid” then unfollowed me. This is a woman of God, but sadly her religion made her hate. I ask, do you think  religion makes people hate? There are over 5,000 religions on Earth, why is this? So many branches coming off the same tree of life and all throwing stones at each other

God I love and pray to every day, religion causes so many issues, but it’s the people in religion who hate over 1 song for example.

It’s easy if you try, to just love and not push people away from Church’s, as many do

This was no rant, this was me writing in the hope of debate and as I say, I may learn something new

Should any religious person get angry at me, you are proving my point 

I know I am right, but so do you, and there is our problem

More love, less hate

Is There an Older City Under the Ancient City of Cusco Peru?


This blows my mind away, LOVE this stuff

This blows my mind away, LOVE this stuff

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

I totally LOVE this stuff, Inca capital city of Cusco a road has been dug up because they think there is a City below an ancient road! Now this blows my mind. I love to find new things, research new things and allow Science to be right sometimes. It is an old INCA road, it’s possible this pre-dates the Inca’s themselves. Can you imagine? A Pre-Inca civilization! I mean that is as WOW as it gets. I have the short video, I have tons of Images. If this is your thing, prepare to be WOW’d http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cusco

Costa de Hermosillo in Mexico

The video below, at first I thought was fake but this was filmed with a GoPro, A small camera eye on a model plane or small drone. The images are there, the video is there (Although strange) and links all over the net. I am 80/20 here,, what you think? Many have in the Scientific Community called this “Growing Earth Theory” Now stay with me here! We have Pyramids in Africa and also South America, what if they used to be closer, check the model video below of a growing planet. It’s ‘Interesting’ You don’t have to watch all 10 minutes to understand what the Scientific video model is telling us,  but IT FITS! Check for yourself

cropI am interested in ANYTHING that isn’t main stream, things that others would say “Get out of here” And this fits the bill. I am in bed on my laptop bored so I though, feck it, “Blog it” lol Here is the video. Now keep in mind this is like a spiders eye, the video has been made faster also. Near the end you see a lad/kid running, looks VERY CGI/Game. But I am assured it was recorded by one of these.

Life Can Survive In The Vacuum Of Space – PROVEN


Plankton have been found living on the exterior of the International Space Station (pictured), according to Russian space officials. They think the microorganisms could have been blown there by air currents on Earth

I LOVE this kind of thing, progress in Science and finding new things and ways about life. To discover life can exist in the vacuum of space is one of the biggest Scientific discoveries in a generation. This proves that life can be on Meteors, Comets or any other planet. This plankton is from Earth (They think) but what an amazing discovery. This is why I am a man of science, you never stop learning, things change, science can’t get everything right but when they discover things like this, it amazes me. The possibilities are now endless in terms of “How did we become a species” Were we on a meteorite? Did we crash land on a barren Earth as microbes? Ahh the questions I have. I shall stop

The discovery was made during a routine spacewalk by Russian cosmonauts Olek Artemyev and Alexander Skvortsov, who were launching nanosatellites into space. They used wipes to polish the surface of windows – also known as illuminators – on the Russian segment of the ISS and later found the presence of plankton and other microorganisms using ‘high-precision equipment’. ‘The results of the experiment are absolutely unique,’ said the head of the Russian ISS orbital mission Vladimir Solovyev.  ‘We have found traces of sea plankton and microscopic particles on the illuminator surface. This should be studied further.’ The plankton are not known to be indigenous to Baikonur, Kazakhstan, where the Russian modules of the station blasted off from.

Experts claim that the plankton were not carried there at launch, because they are marine microorganisms not indigenous to the blast-off site in Kazakhstan – but are thought to have been blown there by air currents on Earth. A SEM microscope view of one type of plankton

Mr Solovyev is not absolutely sure ‘how these microscopic particles could have appeared on the surface of the space station,’ according to Russian news agency Itar-Tass. But he thinks they they may have been ‘uplifted’ to the station at an altitude of 260 miles (420km).  ‘Plankton in these stages of development could be found on the surface of the oceans,’ he said. ‘This is not typical for Baikonur. It means that there are some uplifting air currents which reach the station and settle on its surface.’ Nasa is yet to comment on what this might mean for the American segment of the ISS, and whether similar findings have been made in the past.

VEGETABLES PLANTED IN METERORITE SOIL COULD ONE DAY FEED HUMANS ON ALIEN PLANETS

Astroecologist, Dr Michael Mautner, thinks it is entirely possible to, in the future, directly grow certain plants on other planets, which he says will be vital for a future colony to survive on Mars.

Dr Mautner from Virginia Commonwealth University, researcher recently told Motherboard  that meteorites often contain phosphate, nitrates, and even water that plants can feed on.

To grow the plants, Dr Mautner ground up meteorites to create something closely resembling soil.

‘A variety of soil bacteria, algae, and asparagus and potato tissue cultures grew well in these asteroid/meteorite soils and also in Martian meteorite soils,’ he said.

His plan is to eventually find several different plants and extraterrestrial soil types that provide the best conditions to farm in space.

Dr Mautner’s experiment is currently at a very early stage. For instance, he has not yet factored in the lack of oxygen on other planets, or the varying gravity conditions.

But, he believes, this is the first step to providing the tools needed for humans to better explore the solar system and beyond.

Our planet is telling us something – Mother Nature – Our Species – Video


 

images (2)Our World is in a terrible place just now. I decided to tell the news, honest to God, not till you stand back and see it do you realize, yes, the World, Mother nature is speaking to us. Add to that the disease, Ebola, the breaking news tonight of the Plague. Then there is Genocide and war. ISIS are slaughtering Iraq’s my the thousands, the Israel/Palestine issue, Russia and Ukraine, the Girls are still missing in Nigeria and the fighting and killings are happening in Syria, Egypt and other places, Japans Fukushima plant still harms the Earth as it has been doing so for a few years now. People are reporting being ill more, people like me are developing Chronic Pain disorders, Cancer is up 70% on 30 years ago, I could go on and on. Africa still starves, Religion still causes division. BUT, put all that to one side, hard I know and just focus on the Weather, The changes to our planet and what Mother Nature is doing to us, then this short video all clips from main stream media tell a tragic story of a dying planet and a warring people. Sometimes I wish I didn’t tell news. Let me know what you think.We are hearing VERY strange noises in the sky, our TV media are picking it up. I am just observing our planet here, it seems in so many ways it has become a planet we struggle to understand because a dozen or so reasons, some we know, some we can guess. Global Warming is backwards, cities, underwater cities are reappearing all over the World, go Google. So the Water is going some place. Well if I missed anything, let me know. All I know is, I see a strange and sometimes evil World but often beautiful also. What have we done or what is going on with our World. People over 60 years old must look at this World and see a huge change. I am 4o, I am seeing it. Is it the invention of the internet feeding us faster news, sometimes seconds after the event/ Anyway, life can br good, but does anyone else see the differences reported in the video 2 down

Scientists discover vast methane plumes escaping from Arctic seafloor


Methane bubbles discovered on Laptev continental slope of Arctic ocean

Methane bubbles discovered on Laptev continental slope of Arctic ocean

Just a week into the methane sampling program and SWERUS-C3 Arctic expedition scientists have discovered vast methane plumes escaping from the seafloor of the Laptev continental slope. These early glimpses of what may be in store for a warming Arctic Ocean could help scientists project the future releases of the strong greenhouse gas methane from the Arctic ocean, their press release states.

  • Results of preliminary analyses of seawater samples pointed towards levels of dissolved methane 10–50 times higher than background levels. ​

Methane megaflare on Laptev Sea slope at around 62m depth.

“We are “sniffing” methane. We see the bubbles on video from the camera mounted on the CTD or the Multicorer. All analysis tells the signs. We are in a Mega flare. We see it in the water column we read it above the surface an we follow it up high into the sky with radars and lasers. We see it mixed in the air and carried away with the winds. Methane in the air.” Ulf Hedman, Science Coordinator, Swedish Polar Research Secretariat

The discovery was made while the icebreaker Oden crosscut the Laptev Sea along a depth gradient from 1000 m to just 100 m following the continental slope upward to reach the shallow waters of the outer Laptev Sea Shelf. By use of acoustic techniques and geochemical analyses of water samples, the scientists found vast methane plumes escaping from the seafloor at depths between 500 m and 150 m. At several places, the methane “bubbles“ even rose to the ocean surface.

Chief scientist Örjan Gustafsson from Stockholm University speculates in his latest blog entry that the leaking methane from the seafloor of the continental slope may have its origins in collapsing “methane hydrates,” clusters of methane trapped in frozen water due to high pressure and low temperature

So, what have we found in the first couple of days of methane-focused studies? 

1) Our first observations of elevated methane levels, about ten times higher than in background seawater, were documented already as we climbed up the steep continental slope at stations in 500 and 250 m depth. This was somewhat of a surprise. While there has been much speculation of the vulnerability of regular marine hydrates (frozen methane formed due to high p and low T) along the Arctic rim, very few actual observations of methane releases due to collapsing Arctic upper slope marine hydrates have been made.  ¨

It has recently been documented that a tongue of relatively varm Atlantic water, with a core at depths of 200–600 m may have warmed up some in recent years. As this Atlantic water, the last remnants of the Gulf Stream, propagates eastward along the upper slope of  the East Siberian margin, our SWERUS-C3 program is hypothesizing that this heating may lead to destabilization of upper portion of the slope methane hydrates. This may be what we now for the first time are observing.  

2) Using the mid-water sonar, we mapped out an area of several kilometers where bubbles were filling the water column from depths of 200 to 500 m. During the preceding 48 h we have performed station work in two areas on the shallow shelf with depths of 60-70m where we discovered over 100 new methane seep sites. SWERUS-C3 researchers have on earlier expeditions documented extensive venting of methane from the subsea system to the atmosphere over the East Siberian Arctic Shelf.

On this Oden expedition we have gathered a strong team to assess these methane releases in greater detail than ever before to substantially improve our collective understanding of the methane sources and the functioning of the system. 

Örjan Gustafsson believes such data to be crucial for making scientific predictions of how the release of methane from the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean may take shape in the future.

SWERUS-C3 is a multi-disciplinary program with base funding supported from by the Swedish Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) aiming to investigate the linkages between Climate, Cryosphere (here: sea ice and coastal permafrost) and Carbon release from the sediment, with addition of greenhouse gases (GHG) to the atmosphere. SWERUS-C3 includes principal investigators from Stockholm University, University of Gothenburg,Pacific Oceanological Institute, P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), National Tomsk Research Polytechnic University, the International Arctic Research Center (IARC) at University of Alaska,Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping at University of New Hampshire and Rice University.

Deadly 6.5M Quake Topples 12,000 Homes In China


CHINA-DISASTER-QUAKE

More than 350 people have been killed and over 1,400 others injured by an earthquake in southwest China. Some 12,000 homes collapsed in Ludian, a densely populated county in Yunnan province, according to the Xinhua news agency.  News reports said rescuers are still trying to reach victims in more remote towns.  The epicentre was in the town of Longtoushan where one official was quoted as saying: “Too many buildings were damaged.” Ma Liya, a resident of Ludian county, which was a few miles away, said the streets were like a “battlefield after bombardment”.  “The aftermath is much, much worse than what happened after the quake two years ago,” Ma said.

“I have never felt such strong tremors before. What I can see are all ruins.” She added that her neighbour’s house, a new two-storey building, had toppled. Many of the homes that collapsed in Ludian, which has a population of about 429,000, were old and made of brick.  Xinhua is reporting at least 49 people dead and 102 people injured in Qiaojia county. The US Geological Survey said it had a 6.3 magnitude, while China Earthquake Networks Centre measured it at 6.5. The earthquake hit at a depth of six miles at about 4.30pm (9.30am UK time). Pictures posted online by state media showed troops taking people away on stretchers. Electricity and telecommunications have also been cut off in the county
