Amen

The word AMEN is one of civilisation’s grand deceptions

Amen is commonly used as a declaration of affirmation or agreement, a concluding word and a response to prayer as in the Hebrew אָמֵן, the Greek ἀμήν, Arabic آمِينَ, Amharic አሜን and in Christian English.

In modern use, amen is literally taken to mean; “The truth (subjective) has been spoken”. It can also be used to express strong agreement, as in, for instance, “certainly”, “to be sure” or “amen to that”. Other English translations of the word amen include “verily”, “truly”, and “so be it.”

Phonetically the A infers collusion and agreement to men as superior. The more drawn out use of AaaMenn (reflects a natural instinct for unity) ending hymns

Human Sexuality

A major confusion

Published on: 29 Dec 2015 updated August 20, 2018

There is about as much consensus in society about sexuality as there is about spirituality, and more sex happens in peoples minds than their genitals.

Confusion arises because those who assume moral leadership say one thing and do another. Couple this with the ongoing deconstruction of our societies by social and economic forces.

Sigmund Freud described sexuality as the driver of our psychology and a motivator for all our behaviour which remains relevant today.

But the primary drive to have sex comes from a base biological desire to pass on our genes and perpetuate our species. The desire to breed is an instinctive and powerful force

Raising teens – poetry

My son came home from school one day, With a smirk upon his face. He decided he was smart enough, to put me in my place.

‘Guess what I learned in Civics Two, that’s taught by Mr. Wright? It’s all about the laws today, The ‘Children’s Bill of Rights.’

It says I need not clean my room, don’t have to cut my hair No one can tell me what to think, or speak, or what to wear.

I have freedom from religion, and regardless what you say, I don’t have to bow my head, and I sure don’t have to pray.

I can wear earrings if I

Incest Between Siblings

Right or wrong?

Introduction: It’s a scientifically proven fact that reproduction amongst close family members and relatives weakens our species. Genetic and mental weaknesses quickly evolve from incestuous relationships causing in a more complicated and unpleasant life for resulting generations.

This behaviour however is a fact of life that need not be harshly judged but those indulging must avoid the complications of transmitting STDs and pregnancy. Children who are found out may need appropriate guidance, not punishment. The motivations or causes of incestuous relationships are many but often stem from unhappiness, loneliness, misplaced desire, illness and other factors.

There are estimates that say about 2 – 5% of brothers and sisters have physically intimate relationships for varying periods of

Cooperative Housing

A key to sustainability and owning your own home

Access to shelter is a fundamental human right that has been taken form a large percentage of the population. In this modern world, human rights are written into public charters, yet the corporatism of local and national governments has nullified these rights.

Cooperative housing like any other protest must be done peaceably within the context of local laws as by any other means, the adventure will fail. One system that worked was for some of the Vietnamese escaping the Vietnam war. They landed on Australian beaches and were taken in as refugees, the Australian government gave them money, food and shelter. The people pooled their money and bought a house, several

There are always moments of brain fade – but men must get it together and take charge

Human relationships are becoming increasingly complex and challenging for many reasons. One reason is that human sexuality has been manipulated and controlled by church and state for many generations and the second major reason is the rapid sexuality that pervades our daily lives.

To be a good lover, you first need to establish yourself as a valid human being which can only be achieved through yoga and meditation. And through this process, one comes to

A rape game

You may have heard brief mention of this on your local TV news and quickly shut out from your mind. This is a game played by poorly educated young men, they typically gang up on a girl and if they consider they can get away with it, they will sexually molest, tear her clothes off and sometimes rape her.

The current story in the media is that this game is Islamic, but it’s not. It happens all around the world where children are not properly educated and socialised. In the West where kids fear getting into trouble, they seldom go beyond aggravated flirting and touching.

Yet it’s quite common in the world of sport to hear of
