Read this NOW, or you will be run over by a mail truck!

We have all received those asinine chain letters at least once in our lives, you know the ones that tell you if you don’t forward this letter to all your friends in the next 5 minutes you will die!

 Really now!?

 That’s interesting when I have hundreds if not more that I have no intention of forwarding to anyone, and what you know, I am still alive!

 What is a chain letter anyway?

 A typical chain letter consists of a message that attempts to convince the recipient to make a number of copies of the letter and then pass them on to as many recipients as possible. Common methods used in chain letters include emotionally manipulative stories, get-rich-quickly pyramid schemes, and the exploitation of superstition to threaten the recipient with bad luck or even physical violence or death if he or she “breaks the chain” and refuses to adhere to the conditions set out in the letter. Chain letters started as actual letters that one received in the mail.

 There are some letters that you have the opportunity of receiving in school that read: “Pass this note around the classroom, or I will bash your face in!” Well in this case you just hand it to the person closest to you and hope that no one is waiting for you after school!

 I have read over and over how I will be killed after sunset, stabbed to death in the bathroom, run over by a mail truck, killed by a dozen stampeding horses, and one of my favorites sucked into the toilet the next time you use it!

 Even though we find this humorous the reality of this is, it creates a lot of fear in kids who are not really educated on what to believe. Then you get those children that refuse to use the bathroom, are suddenly afraid of horses, fear playing after sunset, and kids screaming, running in the opposite direction of the mail truck!

 On a serious note there are many things people send you that are not necessarily great to send to naïve people.

 Then you get the opposite spectrum, where people send you those inspiring letters to pass on to all those you love saying: send 12 people this hug and God will bless you 12 times, call 8 friends tell them to look out on there front step for a present from the Lord, say the lords prayer 10 times as you look up at the heavens and God will rain down money, walk ten blocks and return to your first step, you will find the answer to your problems.

 So, is this true?

 No, of course not people just have no lives and feel that in someway they are helping us out with giving us false hope or just scaring us half to death!

Even though I know that this is a big pile of BULL DOO, DOO, sadly kids end up believing too much of this and it is our jobs as parents to inform our children that this is a hoax and not to be superstitious.

 My own daughter received these when she was younger by school kids on paper (before they started over taking Facebook) and she was scared of what would happen if she didn’t pass it on! Now she knows better, but are parents really watching out?

Sometimes these chains can cause many emotional problems and insecurities in children and cause false hope in adults.

 Have you ever received an e-mail saying that a person is sharing their fortune, and all you have to do to receive part of it is to forward the e-mail to as many friends as you can? So, nowadays, a chain letter may take the form of an e-mail, an instant message, a posting on a friend’s social network profile or a text message. If you learn how to recognize them and what threats they pose, you can go a long way in protecting your internet security, both at home or while mobile.

 Beware and educate yourself on types of chain letters! 

Sick Child: They tell a fake story of a sick child who needs to raise money for an expensive operation. They ask you to donate money and share the kid’s story.

Petitions: The letters may ask you to sign an online petition for a new law sustaining a social cause. You have to submit some personal details and forward the message to other people.

False Warnings: They warn you a virus is circulating over the web, threatening to crash users’ operating systems. They urge you to strengthen your internet security by installing or deleting certain files on/from your system.

Rewards of Money: They lure you with get-rich-quickly pyramid schemes. You are asked to enrol other people into a scheme, promising you a certain amount of money for each new recipient you add to the chain.

Urban Legends: Examples: Rich billionaire shares his fortune if you share the news; Katu Lata Kulu steals your soul if you don’t forward her story to your friends; Ted Bundy will find you and kill you if you don’t repost/send his story to 10 friends.

Superstitions: Threaten you with 7 years of bad luck or even physical violence or death if you refuse to re-send the letter to other people.

I think it is safe to say the next time you run into a chain letter toss it in the trash or mark it as spam and move on….Don’t worry I have a feeling you will wake up tomorrow!

Divide and Conquer the “OREO”!

Oreo

When I think of how many divisions there are in the world it makes me think of the general nature of most people.

Imagine living in a large gated community with no managers…. Then some day someone out of nowhere wants to make changes to a place where people have become accustomed to there routine of things for years. This person acting as new manager starts moving things around leaving the people puzzled to where things used to be for so long, starts gating the entrance and questioning everyone who comes in: “What is your reason for being here?” Then this person asks you and everyone living there for money for changes that none of you new about, only to be forced to accept. You all were living peacefully and minding your own business when suddenly someone thinks they have the right to barge in and push their opinions on you and everyone around you!
Does this sound like GOVERNMENT and RELIGION?
We all live in a GATED WORLD!
The first 13 colonies were conquered and taken from innocent people, and we live in freedom right, thinking we own what was never ours to begin with! The government is all about power, conquering, and gaining complete control!
Ever since the beginning of time we have been told how to live, act, think, or not to think, what to believe and how to divide!
Our news, schools, magazines, churches, television, government and more have been twisting the minds of many saying that we live in FREEDOM, when in reality we are bound to the ideas and opinions of others!

Don’t believe that you too are being manipulated?
Answer these with YES or NO…..
Do you eat breakfast in the morning?
Do you go to church because you want to?
Do you work for fun?
Do you pay taxes on your land?
Do you get the flu shot every year?
Do you agree with the deaths in IRAQ?

If your answers were more YES than NO you are being manipulated!
Just because the sun rises in the morning doesn’t mean you must have breakfast!
Just because everyone else goes to church doesn’t mean you have to!
Just because you have the only job you could get, doesn’t mean that it was your choice to have!
Just because you “OWN” your home doesn’t mean you can stop the government from taking it!
Just because the government says: “Get the flu shot” doesn’t mean that you need it!
(Personally I have never got the flu shot and well I am still here, you believe that?)
Our “UNITED NATIONS” promotes world peace, and that is why the war in Iraq still continues unnecessarily!

Let me tell you how I feel we should live….
By taking an OREO leaving it together taking a little bite and enjoying it’s flavor all together, versus ripping it apart sucking out the frosting licking what left on the outer cookie and throwing it away!

Okay the point to my METAPHOR, we humans are the OREO as whole, Government and Religion suck the inner parts of our unique beings leaving just an empty outer cookie that no one wants anymore because, the very filling (our Spirits) that made us so appealing is gone, becoming Conquered and Divided!

Pink and Green Elephants with Wings

How do you know for a fact that what you have been taught is the right thing?

How do you know for a fact that YOU happened to be fortunate enough to be raised in the RIGHT church, with the Right values, and the RIGHT way of thinking?

How do you know that you found the RIGHT place to be, the RIGHT GOD, the RIGHT path?

Nothing makes me shake my head more than people saying:

“I know this is right, because I feel it in my GUT!” (OK, it could be a stomach ache!!!)

“I know this is right because the lord told me!” (SAY WHAT????)

Or my favorites:

“My parents believe it, therefore it must be true, because that’s all I know?” (I think you need to educate yourself here?) ( You need a little culture 101 perhaps?)

“Because I know that’s all!” ( Ok, did a little birdie tell you??)

“I did my research on Google!” ( OH? So you traveled back in time with DR. WHO!)

How can you say you did your research, when there is no possible way of traveling back in time to ask the actual person who REALLY knows what happened!

How can we believe that scientists have found real evidence supporting scriptures in the Bible when many of the evidence is buried far down below the ever evolving earths crust formation that many people are unable to survive going that deep to get back to the time that those supposed events happened. The earth has changed and continues to change, water covers more surface than it did back in the time of B.C. Divers are unable to dive to deepest parts of the ocean in fear of being crushed by the weight of the water and there are so many undiscovered parts of the earth’s core that we could be making the wrong predictions. Now I am not knocking scientists, because I know they are more reliable at giving actual information than most! But they do not know everything and are still trying to find a lot more answers, which they may never find!

How many times have people predicted the “end days” for decades the same thing; “God is coming, are you ready to receive him?” I grew up with ministers saying the same thing, and where is GOD? They tell us in about four thousand years, but that no man will know the hour or day. First there will be a man claiming to be GOD then a tribulation and those who believe in him shall not perish, but have eternal life and those who do not will burn in the lake of fire!

Ok, that means our flesh will be gone, in another words we “WILL PERISH”! We will become spirit beings with GOD, right? How can you believe that when the 4000 years have past and there is no evidence what so ever that anyone has died and become a sprit being without flesh!

Why? Because you cannot prove something you have never seen and are only speculating based on information written in a BIBLE, by Man, from a GOD that we have to have “faith” to believe, really exists!

Then you have those people who say I just believe it! (Believe WHAT?)

You can’t believe in a ghost if you never saw one, you can only give the benefit of the doubt or believe that the person who saw one needs a major psychiatric evaluation.

You can’t believe in ZOMBIES, until you hear a news story of a naked man eating another man’s face off in Florida, THEN YOU BECOME A BELIEVER!

How can you believe a bunch of information that has been, altered through time, manipulated, full of missing parts, with many he said she said stories of belief?

If someone said to you: “I saw a pink and green elephant with wings!” Would you believe it? When never in your entire life have you ever seen such a thing!

Then you get people saying well maybe there was one and it fell into pink and green paint and someone put fake wings on it! (Now these people remind me of those salesmen that sell you products and can convince you into believing anything.) These types of people are so desperate to believe in something that they will find a way for it to be believable! (Talk about being manipulated!)

AND THEY CALL IT FAITH!

I’m not saying FAITH is bad, but it doesn’t always apply!

Having faith does not mean that you can move mountains, or millions of dollars will fall from the sky, that a person with cancer will live, or that 1000’s more children will not die in Iraq!

Faith is nice for some, because it helps them move forward in a world that they would rather be dead in, giving them some sort of inner peace keeping them holding onto false hopes and never ending dreams of a world that many generations to come will never see!

Faith works for those who believe they can lose those extra 50 pounds by summer, or those who believe they will graduate from college with a masters degree in less than four years, or those who believe they will go to Dubai when they retire, or those who believe in being able to buy there first home in 5 years…..this is having faith in yourself and definitely applies!

I am all for people believing in something that they can truly obtain with hard work and dedication, but believing in something that cannot ensure a great outcome just sounds risky to me!

I CAN NOT TELL A LIE!

There is a quaint story about President George Washington which has been taught to schoolchildren for many years.

As a boy of six, Washington received a new hatchet. He went around cutting everything he could find with it, including his father’s prized cherry tree. The tree died and his father, angered, went through the house demanding to know who had done it. George confessed and their conversation supposedly went something like this…

“George,do you know who has killed my beautiful little cherry tree yonder in the garden? I would not have taken five guineas for it!”

“I cannot tell a lie, father, you know I cannot tell a lie! I did cut it with my little hatchet.”

“My son, that you should not be afraid to tell the truth is more to me than a thousand trees! Yes – though they were blossomed with silver and had leaves of the purest gold!”

This story has been used to illustrate Washington’s honesty and moral uprightness for over two hundred years.

Unfortunately, it is utterly false!

It was created by a person named Mason Locke Weems and included in his “A History of the Life and Death, Virtues and Exploit, of General George Washington” which was first published in 1800.

Weems felt that earlier biographies of Washington were rather dull, so he wanted to make his more interesting by humanizing Washington while holding him up as a man of extraordinary character. Weems may have also wanted to make Washington seem more religious than he actually was.

False though it was, Americans loved the story and it found its way into numerous books, publications, and illustrations. Many of those who know it is false believe that “it should be true” because it is such a good, believable story about the life of our first President. Image

So people are happy to believe comfortable stories and in things they know not to be true because it sounds good, rather than boring old facts??? HMM? How do we know what to believe or not to believe in a society that has been making it acceptable to lie for hundreds of generations! 

This Bible, That Bible, BIBLE!!!!

The Kardashian’s say it often, B I B L E!!!!! To me the Bible is ONE book, but wait there is more than one version. One of my adoring followers asked where I was reading the scriptures from???

KING JAMES, LIVING, HEBREW, or maybe in another language perhaps, that would be more understandable or would it?

If there are over 30 versions of the Bible how do you know which one is the right one?

Bible versions are basically translated to fit what people think it means or what fits what they think they want to hear!

Which brings me back to my point of….How many religions there are and which one is the one? There is no right or wrong answer, you go where you feel like going and you read what you feel you can understand! RIGHT? or Wrong?

Keep the comments coming, Love it!!!

Okay, this was clearly written by people and not a super being who is “PERFECT!!!”

How can you trust a Bible that flip flops more than a woman’s mind?

Super Being Manipulated

This blog is my personal opinion and is no way trashing the belief’s of others, we all have a right to express how we feel and I welcome your comments!

Respectfully,

Jacqueline Williams

I sat down at the table about to eat when my daughter bowed her head and said: Thank you “MOMMY” for this delicious meal that you sweated your butt off to make and worked hard to buy just to be able to feed us, AMEN!

That got me thinking…. Never once in my life have I seen some “SUPER BEING” drop anything from the sky to help me out!

I have had countless things happen to me from the time I could crawl to now and I feel like the only one who made it possible to get through it was almighty ME!

When people say Thank God, I think to myself for what? God is something people made up to feel some sort of hope only to keep struggling.

Faith?

Well I have faith in things I can see, hear, make, and do with my own hands.

I hear all the time speeches from celebrities, “….And thank you God for helping my EXPLICIT over the top Swearing album make it to the top of the charts!”

REALLY NOW?!?!

God helped you?

Well if “God” is responsible for helping someone’s cursing album, I really don’t want to believe it!

So apparently in the Bible it states that GOD is merciful and loving and protects all his little children?

That’s why he allows nursery’s in IRAQ to be blown up right? Children in a school to be shot down in class along with their teachers, and Kids to be losing limbs as they watch a marathon?

Then you have the CHRISTIANS telling you God has his reasons…..so GOD is contradicting the BIBLE?

Think about this before you try to defend what you know nothing about!

I strongly in my opinion believe that MAN wrote the Bible in hopes of keeping the people in fear of something greater as not to do harmful, Illegal and horrific things back in the day when there was no such thing as courts and FBI.

I was raised in a “CHRISTIAN” church and well it is no longer together, WHY?

Man wanted to much control, its about power, money, and greed. Churches are suppose to help the needs of widows, orphans, and sick, RIGHT?

Well most of the help came out of the pockets of people who went to the church not the CHURCH itself.

I am totally supportive to all people who believe in a higher power and if it works for them, GREAT!

As for me I have on numerous occasions cried out to GOD and no help! Then I have people in my “ultra loving” family that say if you did the right, thing none of this would’ve happen?

REALLY!

That is why little children are born with cancer and they did nothing to deserve that, but wait it must of been the awful parents, they cursed their child right?

GIVE ME A BREAK!

We are in control of our own destiny a super being doesn’t make or break us, it just gives us something to believe in or something to blame! That’s like believing in SANTA CLAUSE in his sleigh up in the sky, when never in my life have I ever seen a Deer FLY! If the world can make up stories that little gullible kids believe, why is it hard to believe you are not falling for it too!
