Iran Leader claims Israel 'A Wound To Be Cleansed'

By Shaun Gibson, published on Aug 2, 2013

Iran's president-elect Hassan Rouhani has called Israel an old "wound" that must be removed. These statements would seem to cast doubt on the viability of efforts to revive peace talks betwen the Palestinians and Israel.

"The Zionist regime is a wound inflicted for years on the body of the Muslim world that must be cleansed," Mr Rouhani said to reporters.

His comments echoed those of outgoing president Mahmound Ahmadinejad who earlier whipped up anti-Israel sentiment at an Quds day rally in Tehran.

He said: "I will inform you with God as my witness, a devastating storm... (more)

Faces of Fame – an ode to John Wilson St.

By iancochrane, published on May 30, 2013

A face stares out from my PC screen: a suited-up man about 30yrs old, the boyish face round, the hairline receding. I see a clean face, but for the sparing outline of a beard. I see a thin mouth, the eyes narrowed and slightly turned, the face of a man who killed eight people by wrecking an Oslo building with a fertiliser bomb; before systematically hunting down and killing another 69 at a summer youth camp. His beaming face is here, there and everywhere, the trial lengthy.

I’m tired of the casual disregard for life.

The Hermit Chronicles: Cup of Conversation

By D. Sager, published on May 27, 2013

...covered with thick strands of luck and persistence. Looking far down it I see no one, I only hear crowds gathering and yelling praises at the swollen headed partakers of that way. I love to pass by those exits and the many crisscrossing and circuitous forked roads called psychiatry and religion. Bah, I turn my back on these and wander through my aloneness. It is there I am comfortable, being lost gives me a reason to go back over my favorite parts. Don't feel sorry for me as you see my shambled figure shuffling, my face overgrown with disconcerting opinion. I am happy here, but... (more)

The Super Man Club

By Rahul, published on May 25, 2013

...cannot be disproved like million other myths.

Fan clubs are increasing in this world day by day but the people associated with them supposedly think they have high intellect and so won’t admit it as such, they prefer wrapping it around a more deceiving and convincing name called religion. From a society for fun and security its now grown into most unsecure, misleading and profit oriented business, new religions are formed and thus new gods, each individual holds up his own crazy outdated idea and fight within each other to dominate the market while superman and batman which... (more)

Reflections of Vision

By Credo, published on Mar 25, 2013

It was the most brilliant of times that I have ever known, the morning’s bright, blue and blushing with gorgeous reservation. For the very first time I can hear my calling so sure and clear, adaptive and viral whistling in the wind daily.

Blessed am I, for I have seen my angel, illuminating her beauty in its illustrious perfection, like an exquisite stallion of gentility, refinement and wonder. Most gracious is my awe, in anticipation of her lights splendor. Never again will I be able to contain my emotions for they are forever exposed to her light, like the pure darkness of... (more)

Do we create our world?

By ranfuchs, published on Mar 18, 2013

This is a continuation from: Can Science Prove Parapsychology?

Those who are neither religious nor interested in philosophical questions believe that what they experience with their senses is reality itself. They feel that the world exists independent of their senses: when they see a flower it is because there is a flower; the existence of the inside of a brick is not a model but the way bricks work, and an electron is not a model but an actual practical.

They will not deny that human senses can be fooled and do not always convey the true world, and sensual distortions, such as... (more)

Why was Jesus Crucified Between Two Criminals?

By Credo, published on Mar 18, 2013

...the highest plateau in heaven which is paradise, leadership. Consequently the future prophecy (the last days) for the Northern Kingdom as a result of the prophetic crucifixion would mean that the Northern Kingdom would become Idol worshippers, fallen to false teachings, following man made religions, and pursue after a false Christ.

The second man crucified on the right side [a position of praise, “Judah will be praised”] of Christ defended Christ longer, unto the death thus was promised to received paradise the crown of glory, which is the highest position (seated with... (more)

Rampant Atheism and a Lack of Spirituality

By Ely North, published on Mar 11, 2013

...people today claim that He doesn’t exist. Where else could we have come from? Life didn’t just materialize out of thin air! How can mere mortals have the gall to proclaim themselves atheists, and the balls to be proud about it? It doesn’t make sense. I’m not saying that my religion is the right one or that people should believe exactly what I believe, but – Jesus Christ – they should believe in something higher than themselves. I’m afraid that if this atheistic trend of denying God continues, our society will go to Hell in a hand basket. What can I do to help ... (more)

Freedom from CASTE & RELIGION

By Rahul, published on Jan 31, 2013

Do we Indians take cast and religion too much seriously or is it that they are the only things we care about. It may be an intuitive thought but nevertheless it seems like that the greatest threat to our nation is not our neighboring countries (Pakistan and China) or the Maoist insurgency, it is the numerous religions and castes that prevail here. They have rooted so deep into the soil of our nation that any decisions made or anything done in this country should consider both above the needs, interests and wellbeing of its people.
