Liberal media hitlist... Here's the best this week

Below is an awesome list of interesting stuff that I just don't have time to sit down and rant about, glad someone else has the energy. Enjoy!


Whistle-Blower's Evidence

Meet the Shock Troops of the Christian Youth
They're here! They're Queer!... oh, wait, wrong kids. If you've been waiting until the Christian fascist movement started filling stadiums with young people and hyping them up to do battle in "God's army" to get alarmed, wait no longer. Now is the time to arm yourself against those who think they are righteous... and I'm not talking about the Muslims.

The Midas Touch

In Alaska's Bristol Bay region, the continent's biggest deposit could produce more gold than the Klondike gold rush—and put the world's largest salmon fishery out of business.

Lure of the Urban Veggie Garden
For Wally Satzewich, the kick of urban gardening is making fat money and sticking it to the Man. Thing is, he's doing it growing leafy greens in people's back yards.

What Exactly is "Development"?
India's development debate has actually regressed this past decade. For one thing, a single, homogenised view of development is being shoved down from above. Whether it works or does not work is not the issue. Any departure from it is heresy. If you oppose the draining of people's water by Coca Cola and the poisoning of their wells, that's anti-development.

Queering the Code

The Vatican is right about one thing: Dan Brown's story doesn't really make historical or artistic sense. Leonardo da Vinci's work is coded, all right... it's gay. As for me, I couldn't put the book down. I read DVC in one weekend.

Hello Black Bear and all,

My following missive is more closely related to your DaVinci Code mention. If you liked the Code, then you are probably ready to truly understand the hidden story encoded within the symbology. Also, pay attention to Chapter 2 for a true solution to this planet's many woes...

Here's a real hot potato! Eat it up, digest it, and then feed it's bones to the hungry...

Pay close attention, profundity knocks at the door, listen for the key. Be Aware! Scoffing causes blindness...

Here is the key to understanding what the Vatican and Papacy truly fear...

There's much more to the story of the Vatican's recent machinations than meets the eye. It's not the DaVinci Code or Gospel of Judas per se, but the fact that people have now been motivated to seek out the unequivocal truth about an age of deception, exactly when they expect me to appear. These recent controversies are spurring people to reevaluate the Vatican/Papacy and the religions that Rome spawned, at the worst possible time for them.

Remember, "I come as a thief..." ?

The DaVinci Code novel and movie are no more inaccurate as literal versions of history than the New Testament. The primary sub-plot involved purposeful symbology being used to encode hidden meanings, exactly like the Bible and related texts. In other words, none of these stories represent the literal truth. This is the common and pivotal fact of all such narratives about ancient Hebrew and Christian history. Debating whether the DaVinci Code, Gnostic texts, or the Bible are accurate history is a purposeful ploy designed to hide the truth by directing your inquiry away from the heart of the matter.

There is a foolproof way to verify the truth and expose centuries-old religious deceptions. It also proves why we can no longer let the Vatican tell us what to think about ancient history or much else. It is the common thread connecting why the ancient Hebrews, Yahad/Essene, Jews, Gnostics, Cathars, Templars, Dead Sea Scrolls, DaVinci Code, and others have been targets of Rome’s ire and evil machinations. The Vatican and its secret society cohorts don’t want you to understand that the ancient Hebrew symbology in all of these texts purposely encodes and exposes the truth about them. Furthermore, the structure of ancient wisdom symbology verifiably encodes the rules to decode messages built with it. This is what they most fear you will discover.

If the Bible represented the literal truth or even accurate history, there would be no need for faith in the assertions of deceptive and duplicitous clergy and their ilk. It is undeniable the New Testament is awash with ancient Hebrew symbolism and allegory. The same is evidenced in the Old Testament, Dead Sea Scrolls, Gnostic texts, biblical apocrypha, Quran, DaVinci Code, and other related sources. All ancient religious, mystical, and wisdom texts have been shrouded in mystery for millennia for one primary reason: The ability to understand their widely evidenced symbology was lost in antiquity. How do we finally solve these ages-old mysteries? To recast an often-used political adage: It’s [the] symbology, stupid!

It is beyond amazing that the Vatican still tries to insist the Gospels are the literal truth. Every miracle purported for Jesus has multiple direct symbolic parallels in the Old Testament, Apocalypse, Dead Sea Scrolls, and other symbolic narratives and traditions. Recasting the symbolism of earlier Hebrew texts as literal events in the New Testament is one of the central deceptions associated with Christianity. This is part of the secret knowledge held by the ancient Gnostics, Templars, Cathars, and others, which is presented with dramatic effect in the DaVinci Code. None of these narratives or stories were ever intended as the literal truth. This fact is the key to unraveling many ages-old mysteries and exposing the truth about the Vatican's long-term deceptions.

Moreover, the following Washington Post article (The Book of Bart) describes how many changes and embellishments were made to New Testament texts over the centuries, unequivocally demonstrating they are not original, infallible, or truthful. When you combine proof that the New Testament Gospels are not wholly literal with proof that these texts were heavily reworked in the early years of Christianity, you are left with only one possible conclusion. The Vatican has long lied to everyone about the central tenets and history of Christianity. This revelation also proves they are not the Creator’s representatives but Her longtime opponents. The recent hoopla over the Gospel of Judas and DaVinci Code demonstrates they are still desperately trying to deceive the world and obfuscate their true nature and activities.

It's no wonder the Vatican fears the truth more than anything else. As further proof of these assertions, seek to understand the symbolic significance of my name (Seven Star Hand) and you will have proof beyond disproof that Jews, Christians, and Muslims have long been duped by the great deceivers I warned humanity about over the millennia. What then is the purpose of "faith" but to keep good people from seeking to understand the truth?

Now comes justice, hot on its heels... (symbolism...)

Revelations from the Apocalypse

Well, you certainly don't have your own agenda, and you certainly aren't boring or long winded pathetic loser either.

I didn't get past the first two sentences of what you just wrote, because you seem to be a huge gasbag, but let me respond to the poorly written statement you made.

Yes, much of what we see and hear is symbolism and metaphor. We are surrounded by it. From the Bible to that little annoying talking Taco Bell dog, dude, it's all symbolism and metaphor. The vast majority of dumbass illiterate Americans wander around unaware of any of it. Welcome to planet Earth. I was really intrigued by the DaVinci Code, yes, but not because it had some mystical hold over me. I had to keep reading in order to find out whether or not the Professor and the lady cop were going to Get It On. I was hoping for some kinky screwing in a Knights Templar temple. You'd think that after all the crap that guy went through he'd at least get the girl in the end. No dice. All work and no play. Makes for a bad ending to the story and from what I hear, Tom Hanks doesn't get any nookie in the movie either. For me the religious aspects of the book were pure bullshit. It's a good murder mystery with no sex, kinda like "Law and Order" or CSI.

As for your not liking Catholics all that much, blow it out your pompass ass you self-righteous slob, We Catholics are some of the best people on Earth.
