Credit Card Revolution

Ok folks, it is time we as a nation and all others in the world also, start a Credit Card Revolution against the banks and all places that provide Credit Cards. We need to stop using them all until the Credit Cards issuers lower the APR to less than 5%. All of the Credit Card Companies have screwed us by rasing the APR so much in the recent past, that it is time we screwed them back. I for one have almost stopped using any of my cards, unless I can pay back the amount charged on the next bill. I have even closed a few of my accounts because the APR is now to high and told the card company why I was closing the account.  If the Credit Card Companies start losing some real money because what they have done to us as users of the cards, they just might start to really care about what they are doing.

So I ask you all to stop using your Credit Cards and to tell your friends and neighbors to stop using theirs and pass the word around the World about the Credit Card Revolution I am trying to start here. Just maybe we can change the way the Banks and Credit Card Companies are doing business these days. It is plain to see that our Governments are doing anything to take care of us on this issue, so it is up to us, the people of the world to make a change. We can do it, there are so many of us that the Banks and Credit Card Companies must respond if we all stop making money for them.

So be part of the solution and not part of the problem, and be sure to pass the word to all.

Borders

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 9:14 pm

Just what is a border? For some it is the imaginary line that separates countries. I say imaginary because there is nothing there to show where one country starts and another one ends. Yet we seem to believe that by being one side or the other of these imaginary lines that we are better than those on the other side of it. Unless you live on and island which does have a real border around it you are living in imaginary countries. Sure the world has agreed on where these imaginary lines are, but at what price were these borders made. And just why would one think by living in of these imaginary countries that they are better than the ones on the other side of the line? I guess it all goes back to people thinking that they alone are the chosen ones of the imaginary god they made up and therefore are the best there is.

Has always seemed strange to me that this concept goes all the way down to the streets we live on. My block is better than your block. The end results being the gangs we have all over the country thinking that their street gang is better than the one one on the next block and being willing to kill to prove it. What little minds humans have. Grown up human-beings acting like little children, when will it all end? I do blame religion for this happening in the world. After all if your god says you are the chosen people you are going to let the other people know that you are better than they are and you alone are right so everything the others do is wrong and bad. And you say this to the others who believe the same thing about themselves, just what is going to happen? Just like children they start to fight to prove who is really the best. Each believing that their god will favor them and of course the winner is always right for might makes right. If I beat you then I must be better, what a thought. Like playing king of the hill, who ever ends up on top is the winner.

Think about America. All men are created equal, right sure they are! It took this country a long time to try and make that statement true and even then it was not put into practice. To this day we still have the problem of men being equal, even with the president we now have in office, all men are not being treated as equals. All men are equal, but what about women? How long did it take for them to get the right to vote and have they ever gotten fair pay for the same work men do? Sure we passed a law to make it so, but law and practice are not the same thing. Even here we have made borders between things. And why you might ask? Well back to that imaginary god again. Yup lets see how that went, god made Adam, so man is first and most important. A note here, in the Holy Bible I happen to have in front of me it does not say that Eve was made from the rib of Adam, though this the story I grew up hearing, makes you wonder just what is the true religion when it changes with each sect making up the story as they want it be. Well going on with the rib story, we have woman be a lesser part of the story, an after thought even. As I remember the story, god saw that Adam was lonely and god decide that Adam needed a mate, gee guess watching all the animals in the world having one, I would want one too. After all what was the point of have a male sex organ if Adam had no one to use it with? Of course woman being less than man, it would have to the female who ate of the so called apple, after all a man wouldn’t do any wrong unless he was tempted by a woman, would he? Here’s a thought for you, god didn’t give us brains to really think with, it was Eve. Eve gave us knowledge, not god. Why would a god not want his children to know things?  What border was god afraid of that humans should know things? Without knowledge, mankind would have been no better than the rest of the animal kingdom.

So the god of our story starts us out with the I am better than you idea. His creations just keep up the idea, causing the first murder to happen, Cain killing Able so Able couldn’t be better than him or more favored. If the old testament is to believed, I am not sure being the chosen of god was a good thing. All the suffering the Jews went through as the chosen people just doesn’t seem to fair to me for a chosen people. So where and when did the idea of being better than others really come into practice? One just has to look at all of the religions starting points, there you will find that each of them sort of all say that their god created them first as the chosen ones. And I do mean all religions, even going back in time to the ones not in use today. Again I ask just why does mankind think they are so special? Why did they think the world was made for them? Why would mankind in this day and age still believe what they do about the gods?

When mankind grows up, borders will no longer be needed. No imaginary lines will be needed to separate us from each other. We need to get rid of the gods, get rid of the borders. One nation under god? What god is that? Whose god is that? Which god should we choose? Can’t have equality until that issue is resolved and the only real solution is no god at all. Can’t fight over what doesn’t exist, can we? When people realize that where they live is not really any better than any other place, we just might stop thinking our place is better and fighting to prove it. But having people who refuse to see the truth of the world will always hold us back from being able to grow up. The thought of me being better than you goes into almost every facet of our lives, rich people are better than poor people, upland people are better than lowland people, tall people are better than short people, jocks are better than (todays term) nerds. Strange that last one is, saying that having brains to think with is not cool, just another way of people wanting to keep from using their brains and think! Why is the world afraid of thinking and growing? Because the children are afraid of pissing off their so called Father of a god! I have to ask, what was the point of giving mankind the big brain to use if it was not meant to be used? Did the gods want to keep people ignorant just so they could on top? Just like so many leaders of this world do. World leaders have always wanted to keep the people ignorant of what is really happening, because when the people find out the truth, the leaders lose their jobs. Just look at your news and you see it happening everyday.

So lets grow up people and put and end to all of these borders we have. Or are you afraid to cross those borders?

Hell?

Filed under: God and gods — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 10:42 pm

Just when did god create hell? It was not in the beginning, just heaven and the earth were according to Genesis. Just where was god if there was no heaven? After all we are taught that is where god is, so again where was god before he has a place to call home? And why does there have to be place we call hell? God wasn’t good enough in creating all his things and needed a place to put the rejects? Satan, I am guessing that god made the angels or were they the other gods god was jealous of? Any how if god made the angels, how come his best creations or his first I guess rebelled against him? Seems god made a mistake here, the people he created also seem to keep rebelling, another mistake, guess we do need a hell to put these rejects in, there are so many of them. Of course regarding the people sent to hell, just how many is god sending as opposed to how many are sent by each different sect of gods religions. After all I believe my way and of course I am right so you all are going to hell if you disagree, right? Guess we are all going to hell, after all we are all right so all others are wrong and god will punish all wrong thinkers. What arrogance mankind has why must every group think they are the best there is? Why would any group be better than any other? If a god made us all, then all are equal and the same. Is that not what is meant by all are equal in the eyes of god? If all are equal then all are going some sort of hell, for no person is perfect. Most of the ideas of hell come from Dante book, people just love to believe the worst without ever checking the facts of truth. Judge not least you be judged, which is what people do all the time, never really thinking of what may or may not be true. So more people for the hell they believe in. Would a truly loving and forgiving god really send his people to such a place? Just because there are people who mistreat children, must the god and gods we made up do the same? I once asked religious leader to show me just where the story of devil was in the bible, he wouldn’t or couldn’t do it, I have always wondered why? Guess he didn’t want his belief questioned. Lost a girl friend once because I didn’t believe in her god, yet she knew nothing about the Bible and what was really in it, she was one of those who believe without knowing why and never questioned the idea at all.

So which came first, Hell or Satan? If Satan was a good angel in the beginning, there was no need for a Hell. If the all knowing god new Satan was going to rebel and had Hell waiting, well why wait, just create hell with Satan already in it. But then why create evil at all? But god created man in “OUR image, after OUR likeness” which tells me that there are more than one god around, which also makes one think that the gods were also good and evil to start with. “Behold the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil”, Us, again gods are mentioned. Gods knowing good and evil, why would gods  need to be good or evil? Makes the gods sound like they are just normal people after all, gee maybe that’s why the gods were made in mans image, cause they were made up by mankind. The arrogant people who think they are the best thing on this world, the ones who thought the whole universe was made just for them. The ones who believed the Sun revolved around the Earth, the Earth their god made just for them. And these people are the ones who thought the earth was flat and would punish any who said different, are the ones we still choose to believe when the idea of a god is being taught.  Maybe we need that Hell after all, for we need a place to put the children who refuse to grow up and learn the truth of the world.

god evolves

Ok take the old testament, we have a jealous god, vengeful and almost just plain mean to any who wont do what he wants. This is the Jewish god of old.  Still got to wonder how the first two people did wrong and the the first two kids did wrong and the world fills with wrong thinking people, even after god kills almost every human on Earth with a flood and the ones who popluate the world after that also do wrong again. Somehow god did not make his creation right it would seem. So after giving up and saying he wont kill us all again with another flood, he for some reason evolves into a loving god who forgives all by having his son killed by a slow tortuous death. Hell of a way to get people to follow the new idea. Lets kill just one more painfully and then we will not to that anymore. Does anyone really think that word of mouth is the best way to spread a new religion? Well it did work very well, I guess. But still to this day we have people who wanted a different message than the one Christ put forth, so alongs come Muhammad and another version of god and what god wants is born. We have another evloution of god, strange how mankind keeps making the idea of a god fit just what they want. In every religion god is as mankind  thinks he should be. God just keeps evolving to fit everybody, to bad people can’t evolve to fit everybody.

So now we have three religions that all believe in the same one god. Or at least the same basic one god and we have hatred between the different religions who want to believe that their version is the right and only true religion. And they will kill to prove it is true, fight wars over the so called truth. Hell even within each religion they cannot get one real version that they will all agree on. So just why would one single god let so many different version of itself exist? If it really wanted people to know the truth it would let all mankind know at once and put a stop to all the fighting and killing it its name. Unless of course it enjoys the fighting and killing. Making the whole world a joke for its amusement. Not a hard thought to have seeing what has and is going on in the world. But that is not the thought I came here to present.

Back to peoples views of god and gods. Seems most people have a very narrow space in which their gods exists, no room for other views. Why do they think that their view is right and all others are wrong? Would a god who gave the choice of free will to its creation really be mad if the people used what god gave them? Would it not be against god to not use that free will and go where it led them? After all if we are supposed to be made in gods image and I dont think that includes the bodies we have (if god is a male entity, what use would he have for sexual organs if there is only one of him?)  but the mind we have is that image. An all knowing god would expect its creation to grow and learn. After all people say we are his children, do we not expect our children to grow and learn? Should we expect less of a god than we do of ourselves? It would seem that god and gods are always just the what the narrow minded people make them to be. Not the other way around. God and gods are make in the image of mankind. It would seem a simple thought to make to me. I made it, why cannot others do the same. Why can’t all mankind make this same simple thought and out grow their fairytale stories? Why because mankind is still thinking and behaving like children and need their bogeyman to keep them in line. Be bad and the bogyman will get you. God and gods are just that, bogymen. Do wrong in gods eye and you will go to Hell. God and gods were created by simple minded people back mankind did not what the world was or how it worked, We do now, so now is the time to evolve god and gods into the history books that tell of what we as people belived in the old days. Just like we do and did with all the old god and gods we once had all over the world.

Just start thinking and it all falls into place. It is not a hard concept to follow. It just take some bravey to say no, I will not blindly follow without thinking. I am not a sheep, I am a human being and have a mind and I will use it. Do you have a mind? Do you use it or are you one of the sheep who doesn’t need to think and be a grown up?

God and gods 1

Filed under: God and gods — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 1:34 am

God and gods, what a concept. I would like to know just when mankind decided it needed that concept. Long ago when mankind knew nothing about the world it lived in, I can see that one would wonder how things happen. I can see mankind being like a child without a teacher believing that some great power must be doing all the things that happen. I can see mankind looking at itself and seeing that just as they have different talents at doing different things, the powers must be the same way. A power that controls each of the different things that happen, like the rain, the wind, things that grow in the earth, that cause the animals to move from place to another and so on and so on. Okay, gods are now invented, next step.

 One person thinks, if I can convince the other people that I can talk to the gods and can get favors from the gods, then the people will have to come to me and do what I say. I am now the priest who knows what the gods want and need to grant favors to mankind. I cannot let another have this power for I will lose my own if I do. So my way is the only right and true way there is, and I will fight and kill any who differ from my way. Religion is now invented, next step.

Ok we have religion, we need a priest for each power. But people do get tired of having to do the same things over and over again and having so many gods to do things for in order to have things in life, gets in the way of doing things in life. So mankind decided that one god is easier than many and if only one day is needed to worship that god I have more days free for the things I need to do. Ok one god is invented.

Nice idea but as we all know, each group of people thinks that they are the best group, the smartest and so on and so on. No two people really ever think just alike, feel just alike or even want the same things in their life. So we have a problem with just one god and one religion. There is nothing to be done except to change the rules so I can do what I want and still be right. This is why we so so many different factions in religion. Even why we have so many different religions. And each group has to think they are right and would and did fight to prove it. We are still fighting to prove what we believe is the truth and only right way there is. Just check out history, the world is full of this proof.

Ok people, time to grow up. There can be no one god who has the only right way to live. People are just too different for this to happen. Pull your heads out of the sand and look at the world, religion has caused more death and war than just about anything else. And you still want to believe that this is right for mankind? That all others must believe as you do. Hell your next door neighbor most likely go to a different church than you do, so should you kill him? Kill him just to prove that your way is the only right and true way?

Ok one thought posted here, more to come. Much more!

Where Mankind Will go

Filed under: odd stuff 2 — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 7:59 pm

WHERE MANKIND WILL GO

While walking in the splender
Of the country,
Seeing what wonders there
Are to behold,
I tripped upon a sign of
Mankinds destruction.
Just a pipe in the ground,
Alone it was.
It spoke to me saying,
“Here a house will be,
A home for people,
People who will pollute this spot,
People who will kill what Nature
Has made”.

And as the  pipe spoke,
I heard a cow mooing.
Where it was I do not know,
But alone it was.
The cow was saying,
“Where will I go,
Mankind is taking all,
Must I join my kind in the
Cattle yards?
Yards so full none can breathe,
Only to await death?
Yards where thousands upon
Thousands stand with no room.
Where the stench of death
Reaches for miles upon miles”.
If you ever drive on California
Interstate Highway 5,
Somewhere between Los Angeles
And San Francisco,
You will see and smell such a place.
For it cannot be missed.

I cried upon this spot where
I tripped,
For I see where mankind will
Go and what mankind will do.
In beauty and harmony,
This world was created.
In complete destruction,
It will end.
For mankind is a cancer,
Taking over all.
In the end,
Mankind will kill everything.
