Wild Nature

cheetahWild animals are driven by instinct, which is survival, food supply and territoriality. Humans are similar.

Predators and their victims

Carnivores are on the offensive and herbivores or on the defensive and that is quite natural in the animal world.

Cannibalism still exists among Homo sapiens. This untamed animalistic nature has been witnessed in the 1960s. Were these people excused? Since they live so close to the nature to them it is quite natural to war with other tribesmen, score victory, and then eat their flesh. To eat your enemy is to perform an extreme form of physical dominance. Therefore, planet Earth is filled with different types of people and look-a-likes.

Some tribal peoples have practiced consensual cannibalism as part of their rituals of mourning and burial. Complex funeral ceremonies among the Brazilian Wari’ – a tribe that had been practicing reverential cannibalism on its dead until the Brazilian government intervened in the 1960s. Here, cannibalism was not a pleasure, but a duty. In some cases, with the corpse several days old, tribe members forced themselves to eat flesh so putrid that it made them nauseous. It would have been disrespectful not to do so.

Today, 2014

Recently, Reuters reported that a leader of the Syrian rebel group Farouq Brigade was taking a bite out of the heart of a dead Syrian soldier. This has been shown in a video posted online. This man cut into the torso of a dead Syrian soldier saying to his comrades, “I swear to God we will eat your hearts and your livers, you soldiers of Bashar the dog,” referring to supporters of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. Off camera, a small crowd can be heard calling out “Allahu akbar” — God is great. Then the man raised one of the bloodied organs to his lips and started to tear off a chunk with his teeth.

Blind beliefs in their own kind of religion; in its founder; and in its imaginary love-less god makes people regress and not progress. This slippage into backwardness is most alarming.

It is not a matter of believing, but a matter of better knowledge. What separates humans from animals is understanding and knowledge. An educated mind has better chances in acting compassionately and altruistically. Uneducated minds seem less charitable. Animals cannot be charitable, but humans can.


cosmosDeep within humans resides the desire to conquer space. Today some regress while others progress. Colonizing even our own galaxy with robots or satellites would be impertinent, yet that hidden drive is there.

We harnessed the so plentifully available to us energies, the power of air, electricity and oil, but cosmos remains free and wild. Humans conquered the Mt. Everest and South Pole, but they can't conquer the universe. Settling a planet and doing research on it; in the name of knowledge-augmentation may be possible, but silly.


The Dark Matter, which encompasses and holds together all things in existence is active and living. It is invisible to the naked eye, yet perceivable. This invisible stuff can be even examined, just as we do with the force of wind. Yet, we are helpless when facing merciless tornadoes, hurricanes and cyclones. Dark Matter is there and we are almost ready to know it. As we seek we find. As we study we discover. These are the universal laws; and we ought to study these laws rather than just matter itself.

Sooner or later the unyielded and preposterously ridiculous human pride must humbly bow its knee to this awesome force we call God.

The Bible says that God opposes the proud, but to the humble He gives even greater grace. The self-exalted He abases. The Bible does not teach humility before men, but only before the Almighty God.

What is humility? It is like an empty vessel—empty of self—it is hollow and ready to be filled with something greater than itself. When that vessel is lifted to be filled with divine knowledge, and is kept in this fashion for a time; then the universal laws of need must fill it. The revelatory knowledge will most certainly flow into such.

Just like the air, which is invisible and yet we know its chemical structure in a similar way so it is with the dark matter.

[1Kings 19:12-13] After the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of a gentle blowing. [13] When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, a voice came to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

[John 3:8] "The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit"—Jesus.

This kind of a dark matter envelopes our planet and fills our atmosphere. Why don’t we study this “spiritual matter” by training and feeding our brains with divine knowledge?

Planet Earth

earthThe enormous beauty of our planet earth is still unknown. Every year we discover something new in the desert, jungle or in the ocean. We go to space exploring Mars or Saturn. We dare to go even further. But about our own planet we know little. The same machines we send out into space we could make to explore the bottoms of the deepest oceans. That alone would tell us much more about our planet’s origins than the space exploration alone.

Underwater exploration encompasses some of the most exciting endeavors in the world. Whether charting unknown geological formations, discovering strange life forms in areas we used to think were uninhabitable, or bringing to light the rotted ships and encrusted artifacts of previous eras, this adventure yields more surprises and new discoveries than perhaps any other field.

New and previously known vents were discovered in the Cayman Trough, a deep section of the Caribbean, south of Cuba. It lies about twice as deep as most known hydrothermal vents. Hydrothermal vents are fissures in the seafloor where geologically heated water spews forth.

deep ventThe vents, some of the hottest ever discovered, are also interesting from a geological perspective. Here, high temperatures and pressure cause venting fluid to become supercritical, meaning it behaves like a gas and a liquid. These fluids are very reactive, dissolving minerals deep in the Earth's crust and transporting them to the seafloor.

From bacteria that can survive inside rocks to microbes that can withstand tremendous heat, cold and radiation, life can take some extreme forms. These enterprising creatures reveal not just the resilience of life on Earth, but the possibilities for life elsewhere in the Universe.

It seems as if we are unable to detach ourselves from the exploration of celestial bodies. The Bible mentions ascends to heaven. The common idea of ascending and descending has to do with measured space and that is what fascinates us. When we closer study the words of Jesus we discover that He often so ever graciously stooped down to the level of those He interacted with. When He taught His disciples, He was explaining to them that the kingdom of heaven is not up above but close by, in their midst, in them and among them. But when the resurrected Jesus spoke with Mary He said, “I have not yet ascended to the Father.” In Acts 1 we read about the ascension of Jesus where a cloud obscured the disciples’ view and Jesus faded into the kingdom of heaven right there where they were, in their midst. But the disciples kept looking up. This was their fascination with space. Two men (angels or overcomers) asked them, “Why are you looking up?” A strange question, for there is no need to look up, but to explore what is in our midst.

We gather from the teachings of Jesus that God and His kingdom is not out there beyond the stars but very near. The closer we explore that which is near the more truth we garner. It is not the farfetched, but rather the close by.


anatomyAll animals have organs just like ours. The physical is not what separates us from animals, not even the brain. What separates us from the animals is divine intellect. The ability to communicate with the Creator of all things.

Due to many religious beliefs, and worship of many deities; we know but very little about the Almighty. Theology (knowledge about God, but not the actual knowledge of God) lumps God into a religious pot and cooks Him to the taste of the diners. Subjective interpretations are the choices a cook makes in the kitchen. The better the food the better the restaurant; and the credit goes to the chef. So is an organized (commercial) religion. No religion presents God the way He really is, or the way He wants to be known.

On Mt. Sinai, Moses met with the Almighty Spirit (John 4:22 - God is Spirit). The Most High introduced Himself to Moses.

[Exodus 33:19] And He said, “I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion.”

God is selective and that selectivity has to do with the humbled before him vessel, a hollow vessel. With the gentle He is gentle and with the peacemaker He makes peace. However, the opposites are also true. With the twisted He makes Himself devious. You might say: can God be also crooked with a crook? Questions like these spawned dualism, God vs. Satan.

God changes not, but like Jesus who stooped down to the intellectual level of those He interacted with, so is God. He first teaches and gives us plenty of information about Himself and His kingdom; and then He expects us to approach Him on the basis of knowledge. Without the willful choosing no knowledge is possible. Before a man marries a woman he wants to know her; and vice versa.

[Exodus 34:6-7] Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; [7] who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.”

Obviously, we can see the perfect logic in these two verses. He responds to the cry of His beloved and His chosen. He is compassionate and merciful; the kind of words we are not accustomed using too often.

In Islam only Allah is merciful, but not his servants, who are not even God’s children; hence, Allah is not the father. Muhammad did that on purpose; to spite Judaism and Christianity. Today Muslims are Allah’s slaves, yet they are not slaves to God but rather to the their own subjective interpretation of the Koran.

The God of the Hebrews is a God of fellowship, communion, and interaction. In Deuteronomy 32:41 we read, “When I sharpen My flashing sword, and My hand takes hold on justice, I will render vengeance on My adversaries, and I will repay those who hate Me.”

Something must trigger this flashing sword of vengeance. What we sow we must also reap. God is loving and kind, merciful and gracious—that’s His unchanging eternal character. But His garments can be fearsome.

[Psalms 97:2-3] Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. Fire goes before Him and burns up His adversaries round about.

[Isaiah 59:17-18] He put on righteousness like a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; and He put on garments of vengeance for clothing and wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle. [18] according to their deeds, so He will repay, wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; to the coastlands He will make recompense.

God is one, but the known to us energy—only in the physical realm—is minus and plus, but in the heavenly realm God is only plus.
