Global Genocide List

Atrocities at the behest of emotion and reason

Genocide takes many forms and represents humankind’s incapacity to be human and a degree of inhumanity towards one’s fellow man that is beyond the understanding of the rational mind.

Genocides take many forms, at one level there is an aversion to a neighbouring community and the development of aggression followed in some cases by complete extermination.

In addition to total genocides where entire populations are reduced near to zero, the art of cultural genocide continues today as Christianity for instance attempts to replace scientific paganism and other cultural practices as does its offshoot Islam that will happily commit genocide as it does in Kashmir and Myanmar.

This is only a partial

Charity

A real need or a con?

Anywhere we go today in the modern world there will be beggars and charity collectors many who also knock on your door asking for money or support. Online there is a large amount of advertising trying to persuade you to give money to one charity or another and one must acknowledge that charity has become an industry.

Within democratic socialist societies, the nature or structure of that society is such that anyone without paid employment has no means of sustenance and therefore dependent on handouts. The state has tried to keep these people out of sight and out of mind and even today cities legislate to exclude the dispossessed. Should they transgress they

Lord Shiva in the Bible

Tracing the origins of Judaism and Christianity

In examining our history and learning that the out of Africa theory is on shaky ground and some other theories in regard to indigenous origins of modern humans remain in contention. It also seems apparent that there has been considerable mixing of subspecies between each other and between modern humans so we may never trace our exact ancestry that far back.

The identified identified first modern human remains have been identified at Jebel Irhoud, Morocco and dated to 300K BC. In contrast, “the find at the prehistoric site of Attirampakkam, India, has shown the potential of a Middle Palaeolithic culture at 385 ± 64 thousand years ago (ka), much earlier than conventionally

Conversion Kills

A time to outlaw this practise

Since time immemorial perhaps since people were able to convey ideas to each other through the use of words or gestures, there has been a desire to convince others that one’s original idea is right and should be followed. It may have been as simple as we will find better hunting by going this way.

Over time some ideas proved worthy and some individuals became more authoritative because their ideas were proven. Then people listened and took note, those with the best ideas became leaders which was all very well in matters to do with basic survival. But in the realm of more intangible knowledge like defining God, there can be no collective

A personal acquaintance of Swami Vivekananda who made the first concerted effort to introduce the Holy Science of Yoga to the West, Nikola Tesla was a Serbian born inventor who moved to the USA. He is best remembered as electrical and mechanical engineer, a futurist who designed of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. He also developed X-ray imaging and wireless communication.

In 1882, Nikola Tesla got a job in Paris with the Continental Edison Company installing direct current incandescent lighting. He gained a great deal of practical experience in electrical engineering and improved system designs before moving to the

Who are the Rohingya?

And what’s their problem?

Updated May 22, 2018

Most media sources and wiki describe the Rohingya as the world’s most persecuted people, a population of about 1.1 million people who live predominately in Rakhine state within Myanmar.

The Rohingya people say they are descendants of Muslims, perhaps Persian and Arab traders, who came to Myanmar generations ago but they are mostly ethnic Bengali’s who’ve been Islamised for many generations. But unlike the Buddhist community, they speak a language similar to the Bengali dialect of Chittagong in Bangladesh.

Looking back over 1000 years of history we cannot be precise. It is well documented that Southeast Asia was more influenced by Hinduism over the first few centuries of the B.C. era

Capitalism

A cancer corrupting Humanity

Most people see capitalism is a good thing and nestled within democracy that we mask ask if this is actually a good thing for us and is it really contained within democracy?

Perhaps we should first ask what is capitalism? Capital begins with some form of asset in other words if you create an idea, you can share that idea by giving it away without expectation of reward or you can attach a reward value. But capitalism begins when you attach value to the idea or thing that you have created and can persuade someone to pay your price.

In early human society perhaps a man takes a piece of stone and transformed it into a

Lies at play

The game of international diplomacy crumbles

Perhaps we should call this article “Russia gate” and perhaps it is only picked on because it dares to be different although it is not that much different because after all, like you and I the Russians want to be happy and they’re quite capable of doing it in their own way without any reliance on the US dollar, foreign aid or ripping anyone off.

Russia is not a superpower and as population is shrinking as it continues to recover from the collapse of the old Soviet Union which left the population traumatised while at the same time swimming against a flood of negative criticism from all quarters. Russia today stands accused of many

The Sati Myth

It is said that Hindu women must throw themselves into their husbands cremation pyre

In Macadonia (Greece), the wife of King Philip, father of Alexander was buried with him as were wives and servants in Chinese culture.

You can ask any Hindu community if they know of any woman who has done this and the answer is universally no. In fact the idea is seen as horrendous in all eyes, Hindu and otherwise. There may have been a few occasions in the distant past where this may have happened, yet it is so rare there are few records of it happening so where does this myth come from?

Before answering, it must be recognised

Caste and Class

Social divisions throughout history

In looking at the world we have naturalism which sees biology as being the determining factor in life, modern humanism that sees cultural norms as the defining factor which is where we are now, yet this is based on the perception of power and possession of animalism or base survival.

The natural world isn’t fair, just or kind. It’s a place where the strong dominate, exploit, use or even kill the weak because it’s the natural order of life. In the race for survival, the fittest and strongest life-form on Earth are humans. The natural world is not devoid of compassion and kindness, it’s just that the more powerful rule over the weaker and from a
