I didn't really know which category to list this under. But what or your thoughts on this Ebola scare? My opinion is that it is just that, a scare tactic to get the population unfocused yet again and I think it is going to lead to billions of profit off the fearful majority. I'm sensing that they'll say they've just discovered a cure or vaccine soon and encourage the nation to buy and subject themselves to this experimental drug and then I feel that maybe this drug will cause adverse health effects down the road. Either way, I'm sensing this is just another big Pharma marketing ploy. I hate to even bring up topics like this because I don't want to bring about fear or generate an energy that is not loving or helpful for others and I also don't want to put so much thought into it that it becomes a real issue. But I am very curious as to what others are thinking about this. I honestly keep my tv off most of the time and don't watch much of the news ever because it doesn't resinate with how I am trying to improve myself.

Depiction of one of the Beings the Dogon cite as their ancestors from the Sirius Star System
Whether we believe in the Dogon’s claims as to how they got their complex or not -- the fact is that it is well documented that they did know far more about advance science and more than their perceived ‘primitive’ or indigenous state would allow… For the aforementioned reason alone, I find them to be very interesting people and beyond worth of being a point of focus, discussion and dialogue!

Do you think reports of 'cryptids' like the loch ness monster, yeti, living dinousars in the congo, mermaids etc are real? Could these be nature spirits up to mischief or real flesh and bllod creatures?

Doctors are trying to determine that as they are baffled by an Indian man who claims not to have eaten or drank anything for the last 70 years. Old news from last year but it's doing it's rounds so I thought I'd post it.
He is in perfect health AND was tested to see if he was actually eating/drinking in secret...he wasn't lying about it.
Prahlad Jani is a local to the Indian city of Ahmedabad and is claiming he has not consumed any food or liquids since he was 8-years old. He also claims to have been blessed at the age of 8 by a goddess. This allows him to survive without sustenance except for that which he derives from the practice of meditation.

We have all heard about the story of Jesus but how many of us have heard the other side that contradicts the entire story of Jesus? There is a growing number of people and supporting sites that say that the historical figure we call Jesus never really existed. What’s more interesting is that when you look up the origin of the letter J, we will learn that it wasn’t even added to the alphabet until the mid 1500’s! So, how then could someone named Jesus could have possibly lived on earth, over a thousand years before the letter J was even a thought? Given that this is a historical fact, shouldn’t this cause us all to question the truth behind the story of Jesus from start to finish?
Sometimes I wonder how it has been possible for so many people to willingly and blindly accept something as factual just because it was written in a book or because someone of authority told us that it is so? Don’t get me wrong, I am not pointing these things out to make people believe in one way or another but I do think it is important that we have as much information from all sides of a story before we make a final judgment or conclusion about it. The link here lists some pretty interesting but unpopular points about this subject matter. Check it out and tell us what you think!

I have provided a very interesting link regarding the subject matter of ‘sex before marriage’ (below), partly because I wanted to open up a dialogue about the subject matter within our community. Most of us are pretty much aware of the fact that more people are opting out from the ‘nuclear’ or ‘traditional’ family structure and this alone has changed or is changing a lot of minds and attitudes , when it comes to cultural and social dynamics and expectations within our relationships. Traditional marriage doesn’t have the ‘lure’ and appeal that it once had nor does the religious community have the monopoly on marriage as they once did. Therefore, more people are indeed looking at letting go of a belief or perception of ‘living in sin’, should they engage in sexual activity outside of the confines of marriage or the ‘intent’ to legally marry. In my opinion on the subject matter, I am all for ‘to each his/her own’ but I would hope that if one should engage in sexual activity outside of any commitment; he or she seriously weigh the cost and be willing to pay whatever price there is, should something unforeseen or unfavorable occurs, as the result of a romp on the hay with a boyfriend, girlfriend, lover, ‘jump off’ or prostitute (hey, I am not judging, lol).
I could really go in depth on this subject matter but I just wanted to get some of you guys to weigh in…
Do you believe in sex before or outside of marriage or not? If not, why?

Someone sent me a video promo of a new reality show that’s obviously stirring quite a bit of controversy. The show is entitled ‘Preachers of LA’ and the bulk of the controversy revolve around the featured ‘men of God’ displaying what many will call a highly driven, materially driven ‘lavish’ lifestyle. Not only are these men are living like pop or rock stars and making no apologies or excuses for it, they are allowing themselves to express and show their flaws, mistakes and errors (sins). For many people, this shatters expectations and maybe even certain illusions of what they expect their spiritual and religious leaders to be. I have always felt that too many people put people in the public eye (celebrities, politicians and athletes) and even the church and community leaders, who are not well-known to the general public but are so, in their immediate communities – society places these people on mighty ‘God-like’ pedestals to begin with. For me, this is the first error in this regard but I will reserve my opinions and observation for the community dialogue. I was brought up in the church and although my time in this arena was brief, it was enough time for me to wonder why was so much emphasis put on material gains and collecting money from the congregation, who many times; members are struggling to pay rent or keep food on the table. Yet, the Pastor, Reverend and even their wives (the first ladies) would be wearing fur coats, fancy jewelry; driving luxury cars with a beautiful house on the hill, etc. On one hand, there’s this prevailing belief that people who are either spiritual or religious, should not have ‘nice’ things; be damn near broke and destitute in order to be perceived as a ‘real spiritual warrior’ or taken seriously in being of ‘service’ in a highly spiritual way. Then there’s a group who feels that anyone who works hard and give unto others have every right to live comfortably and have wonderful things given unto them… So my question to the community at large is this; where do you stand on this matter? Would someone whose claiming to be a spiritual leader or ‘man/woman of God’ be allowed to enjoy a fancy and luxurious material life if he/she so choose? Would such a situation cloud your perception of him or her? I am curious to know what your opinions are on this matter… So please weigh in.
