CLOUD WITH A SILVER LINING                          MARCH 10, 2004

                                          a commentary by BROTHER  TAALIK  IBN’RAD             YOU EVER WONDER & THINK ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS SOMETIMES? I REMEMBER ARSENIO HALL USED TO SAY ON HIS SHOW “ THINGS THAT MAKE YOU SAY HMMMM!”  I WONDER WHY SOME HUMAN BEINGS FEEL THEY MUST COPY AND GAIN THE APPROVAL OF OTHERS SO THEY CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES OR BELONG TO SOME SORT OF CLICK ( GROUP )  WE PURCHASE CERTAIN CLOTHING TO HAVE THE LOOK OR IGNORE OUR LOGICAL MINDS SO THAT WE ARE NOT MADE MOCKERY BY THE STATUS QUO. EVEN AS A CHILD I NEVER CARED ABOUT WHAT MY PEERS DID OR SAID ABOUT ME, I GUESS I WAS THE FIRST CLASS NERD. I HAD PLENTY OF GIRLFRIENDS BUT I WAS NOT COOL ENOUGH TO DATE BUT GOOD ENOUGH TO HELP THEM WITH THE DAY’S STUDIES. I REALLY WASN’T INTERESTED ANYWAY BUT YOUHAVE A DIFFICULT TIME TAMING NATURE IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN ( SMILE ). I’VE NEVER HAD THE FOLLOWER MENTALITY, MIND YOU I AM NOT SAYING I CAN NOT FOLLOW OR OBEY THE LAWS HANDED DOWN BY SOCIETY.          I HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME IN ACCEPTING THAT OF WHICH WILL BRING LIABILITY TO MY PERSON, THUS I DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN AS THIS WILL BRING RESPONSIBILITY THAT WILL INTERFERE WITH MY SET GOALS. ONE DAY I WOULD LIKE CHILDREN BUT IF I MISS THE BOAT SO BE IT. I AM NOT GOING TO HAVE BABIES BECAUSE EVERYBODY IS DOING IT, SO IF THE EVERYBODY IS JUMPING OFF A CLIFF WITH NO WATER AT THE BOTTOM WOULD YOU DO THE SAME? BEFORE YOU SAY NO, IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT PEOPLE ARE JUMPING OFF CLIFFS EVERYDAY JUST BECAUSE EVERYONE IS DOING IT, THE SAD THING IS EVERYONE IS NOT DOING IT, ONLY THE FOOLISH WHO CHOOSE TO LEAP BEFORE THEY LOOK. THE FOOLISH WHO TAKE SELF DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIORS AND MAKE IT SEEM IT IS THE CORRECT AND BENEFICIAL THING TO DO WHEN IT IS NOT.         MY PEERS ENJOYED DRINKING ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES, HAVING BABIES OUT OF WEDLOCK, SMOKING WEED ETC. THEY TOLD ME I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I WAS MISSING. WHAT I WAS MISSING WAS THE D.W.I.’S, THE BEER BELLIES, THE HARDSHIP OF RAISING CHILDREN WITH ONE PARENT MISSING WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF PARENTING SKILLS JUST TOUCH & GO. NOT BEING ABLE TO UNDERSTAND PRIORITIES BUYING A CAR INSTEAD OF A HOME. PAYING UNNECESSARY DOLLARS FOR STYLES THAT GO IN AND OUT AS QUICKLY AS A CHEETAH CAN RUN. ENRICHING PERSONS WHO DO NOT DO ANYTHING FOR YOUR COMMUNITY AND YOU LIVE PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK BECAUSE WE LACK THE BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF ECONOMICS & MONEY. IT IS TRUE PEOPLE ARE CLASSED AS POOR BUT AT THE SAME TIME IF YOU TRACKED YOUR SPENDING WE WASTE AN AWFUL LOT AND MONEY USES US INSTEAD OF US USING MONEY. WHY IS THIS?       IT IS BECAUSE WE FOLLOW OTHERS OVER CLIFFS, WE WANT TO KEEP UP WITH THE NEIGHBORS AND ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH SELF. A JORDAN SHOE IS NICE BUT FOR ME NOT WORTH OVER $100.00, JORDAN HIMSELF DID NOT MAKE IT. I COULD SETTLE FOR A $50.00 SHOE AND BANK THE REST IT WOULD BE BETTER TO INVEST IN STOCKS & BOND TO SAVE FOR A CHILD’S FUTURE RATHER THAN TEMPORARILY STYLE HIS OR HER FEET. IF A PERSON CLAIMS TO BE POOR HOW CAN ONE JUSTIFY SUCH EXTRAVAGANCE? AGAIN, WE LIKE TO FOLLOW OTHERS OVER CLIFFS. IN CONCLUSION, AT ONE TIME WHEN I DECIDED TO STUDY ISLAM AFTER BEING RAISED UP IN THE BAPTIST CHURCH. FOLKS BECAME ANGRY WITH ME BECAUSE ISLAM TEACHES AGAINST THE EATING OF SWINE FLESH, JESUS WAS ONLY A PROPHET, A KNOWLEDGE OF THE LOST HISTORY OF AFRICAN PEOPLES ETC.          I STOPPED CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS AND OTHER PAGAN RELATED HOLIDAYS. MYSELF & ISLAM HAVE SINCE SEPARATED AND AGAIN THERE IS ANGER AND DISAPPROVALSO WHY IS THIS? PEOPLE IN GENERAL WANT YOU TO FOLLOW THEM OVER CLIFFS, THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO REASON, RESEARCH, USE COMMON SENSE AND LOGIC IN ORDER TO DO WHAT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF YOUR LIFE. IN THE BIBLE THE 10th CHAPTER OF JEREMIAH IT READS “ DO NOT DO WHAT THE HEATHENS DO” THIS WAS IN REFERENCE TO CHRISTMAS BUT COULD BE MANY THINGS. WHY SHOULD I FOLLOW OTHERS AND SEEK THEIR BLESSING WHEN THEY LEAD A LIFE IN SHAMBLES & CONFUSION? THEY JUMP FROM GIRLFRIEND TO BOYFRIEND EVERY OTHER WEEK, THEY LIE WHEN THEY MARRY SOMEONE WHEN THEY TAKE THEIR VOWS, THEY RAISE CHILDREN WHO HAVE NO RESPECT FOR TEACHERS OR ANY OTHER AUTHORITY, THEY NEED DRUGS TO SLEEP, EAT, LOSE WEIGHT, GAIN WEIGHT, TO FEEL HAPPY OR CONQUER DEPRESSION. PAGE # 3                   THEY SPEND MONEY UNWISELY AND THEN SEEK HANDOUTS, EAT AND DRINK WITHOUT DISCIPLINE ENDING UP IN SOME HOSPITAL OR A MORGUE. THEY ARE AMAZED AT THE WISDOM OF DR. PHIL ON TELEVISION WHEN ALL HE IS TEACHING IS COMMON SENSE AND THINGS THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN LEARNED IN SUNDAY SCHOOL. A SOCIETY THAT IS AN EXPLOITER OF WOMEN & THEN THESE SAME WOMEN FEEL IT IS ALRIGHT TO SELF EXPLOIT. THEY WHOSE HISTORY IS THAT OF THE ENSLAVEMENT OF A PEOPLE STOLEN FROM THEIR NATIVE LAND, USED & TERRORIZED FOR OVER 400 YEARS BUT YET JUDGE OTHERS WHO HAVE NEVER COME CLOSE TO SUCH. I REFUSE TO FALL OVER THE CLIFF WITH PERSONS SUCH AS THIS AS THEY ARE FOLLOWING THE PATH OF THOSE WHO WERE AT ONE TIME A GREAT POWER BUT NOW EXISTS ONLY AS PAPER, DUST & RUINS.          IN CONCLUSION, I BELIEVE YOU WOULD AGREE WITH ME THAT THE BODY NEEDS SOME FORM OF FOOD TO SURVIVE. SOME FOODS ARE TRULY BAD FOR US WHILE OTHERS ARE GOOD BUT EVEN IN THE GOOD FOODS THERE IS POISONS. THE BODY TAKES IN THE GOOD FOOD & ELIMINATE THE WASTE & POISONS. POISON IS IN GOOD FOOD, THIS SHOULD TELL US EVEN IF A BELIEF SYSTEM OR OTHER KNOWLEDGE IS GOOD FOR US THERE IS A NEGATIVE SIDE THERE IS A POISON. UNLIKE THE BODY WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DIGEST OUR KNOWLEDGE PROPERLY AND ELIMINATE THE POISON THUS WE BECOME GUN HO AND NO ONE CAN TELL US NOTHING. THE RESULT IS FALLING OFF A CLIFF. I WOULD SUGGEST TO US NOT TO BE CONCERNED WITH THE STATUS QUO AND WHAT IS TRADITION. I HEARD MALCOM X TALK ABOUT FOLKS WHO COPY THEIR PARENTS AND ACT ONLY BECAUSE THEIR PARENTS DID SOMETHING HE WENT ON TO SAY WHAT IF YOUR PARENTS WAS A FOOL?      WHAT IF YOUR PARENTS BELIEVED THE WORLD WAS SQUARE AND IF YOU GO TO FAR YOU’LL FALL OFF, WE DO NOT TAKE THE TIME TO EXAMINE THE THINGS BROUGHT BEFORE US, SO WE EAT THE FLY THAT HAS SETTLED ON OUR MEAL BECAUSE WE DO NOT LOOK AT OUR FOOD BEFORE WE PLACE IT IN THE MOUTH. BE AN INDEPENDENT THINKER AND DO NOT ALLOW OTHERS TO FORMULATE THOUGHT ALWAYS CHANGE. THIS IS WHY SOCIAL SECURITY WAS DESIGNED TO BE HAD AT AGE 65, BECAUSE AT THE GENERAL WAY MOST PEOPLE BEHAVE THEY’LL NOT LIVE TOO MUCH LONGERPAGE # 4 THAN 65. YOUR BEHAVIOR HAS DETERMINED YOUR PATH AND POSSIBLE FATE. OF COURSE IT IS CLEAR WHEN YOU FOLLOW THE STATUS QUO OR SEEK OTHERS APPROVAL AND THESE OTHERS ARE FALLING OVER A CLIFF UNLESS YOU LET GO, YOU ALSO WILL FALL OVER THE CLIFF. UNDERSTAND?  END  PART  ONE, ANY COMMENTS: angelsnupnup7@taalikibnrad.myeweb.net                                      PAGE # 5CLOUD WITH A SILVER LINING                       MARCH  12, 2004                                             a commentary by   TAALIK  IBN’RAD                  AS A HUMAN BEING IN THIS SOCIETY THERE IS A NEED FOR MONEY, IT IS USED AS A METHOD OF TRADE. I DON’T BELIEVE MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL AS MONEY IS NOT IN ANY WAY LIVING OR SPIRITUAL NOR DOES IT MAKE US TO MAKE CERTAIN CHOICES IN LIFE BY GIVING US ADVICE. JUST AS GUNS DO NOT KILL PEOPLE IT IS THE INSTRUMENT IN THE WRONG HANDS THAT CAUSE HARM. SO WE WILL AGREE THAT WE DO NEED TO EARN MONEY, HOW DO WE DO SUCH? IN MANY CASES WE NEED OPPORTUNITY, IN AMERICA I AM TOLD AS LONG AS YOU’RE WILLING TO WORK HARD YOU MAY EARN THE AMERICAN DREAM OF WHICH OF COURSE INCLUDES MONEY. OPPORTUNITY IS GAINED BY HOW HARD ONE IS WILLING TO WORK BUT AT THE SAME TIME I’VE SEEN PEOPLE WHO WORK HARD ALL THEIR LIVES AND END UP WITH NOTHING. OPPORTUNITY IS ALSO SOMETHING A SELECT FEW TRY TO CONTROL AND IF THE MASSES ARE DEPENDENT ON THIS THEY IN MANY CASES ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE EXPOLITED AS THE YOUNG GIRL WHO WILL SLEEP WITH THE DIRECTOR OF A MOVIE FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY A CERTAIN PART.        TO SELL ONESELF OUT TO MARKET IS A WAY TO GAIN OPPORTUNITY BUT WHAT IF YOU’VE NOTHING TO OFFER SOMETHING THAT AN EXPLOITER MAY WANT? LACK OF OPPORTUNITY CAUSES CRIME, IN MANY CASES MANY PERSONS WOULD NOT ROB OR STEAL IF THEY TRULY HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO EARN A LIVING LEGALLY. WHEN WE SEEK HIGHER LEARNING OR EXPLOIT A TALENT THAT WE’VE BEEN BLESSED WITH WE CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITY, IT SHOULD PLACE US IN A POSITION TO NOT WAIT ON SOMEONE WHO MAY BE AN EXPLOITER TO OFFER US OPPORTUNITY WE SHOULD MAKE IT OURSELVES. FOR EXAMPLE OUR FELLOW ST. LOUISIAN CORNELIOUS A.KA. NELLY HAYNES & THE ST. LUNATICS THRU HARD WORK AND SACRIFICE CHOSE TO EXPLOIT THEIR TALENTS TO CREATE THEIR OWN OPPORTUNITY NOT TO SAY THEY’VE NOT BEEN CHEATED IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS BUT THEY REFUSE TO EXCEPT THE OPPORTUNITY ANOTHER HAS GIVEN THEM.        IN SOME COUNTRIES IF YOU ARE BORN POOR THIS ISPAGE# 2                WHAT YOUR LIFELONG DESTINY WILL BE AS WELL AS YOUR OFFSPRING. THOSE BORN RICH WILL BE RICH THOSE BORN POOR WILL STAY POOR. EVEN THOU AMERICA HAS A LOT OF DIFFERENT PROBLEMS IT IS TRUE IN AMERICA EVEN THOU YOU ARE BORN INTO POVERTY YOU CAN RISE INTO THE UPPER CLASSES FOR EXAMPLE, OPRAH WINFREY, ELVIS PRESLEY, SHANIA TWAIN ETC. EVEN OUR OWN NELLY.          ON THE NEWS I LEARN OF SO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE GOING TO THE FUNERAL PARLORS, MANY OF THE REASONS ARE DUE TO MINDLESS VIOLENCE, HOW MUCH OF THIS IS CAUSED BY THE LACK OF OPPORTUNITY? THIS IS AN ELECTION YEAR AND MANY POLITICIANS CLAIM THEY WANT TO SERVE THE PEOPLE IF THIS IS THE CASE THEN IT IS THEIR JOB TO CREATE OPPORTUNITY NOT ONLY A JOB BUT AN ATMOSPHERE OF WHERE THE MASSES MAY HAVE A CHANCE TO SEEK THEIR DREAMS. SO EVEN IF A PERSON CAN’T SING THEY CAN BE GIVEN A CHANCE BEFORE THE PUBLIC SO THEY’D KNOW THEY DID TRY AND INDEED THEY CAN’T SING( SMILE )  THE NEWS ALSO INFORMED ME ABOUT THE 23 MILLION DOLLARS ABOUT TO BE CUT FROM THE EDUCATION BUDGET, THIS IS CUTTING OPPORTUNITY AS THE MORE KNOWLEDGE YOU GAIN THE MORE OPPORTUNITY YOU CAN CREATE FOR SELF & OTHERS.       WE CAN AGREE THAT A PERSON WHO LACKS SKILLS AND EDUCATION USUALLY CAN NOT PROSPER AS WELL AS PERSON WHO HAS OBTAINED SKILLS & HIGHER LEARNING. TO CAUSE OPPORTUNITY NOT TO BE CREATED IS ASKING FOR A SITUATION UNCALLED FOR, EVEN TO THE POINT THE PRISON SYSTEM THAT IS ALREADY OVER BURDEN CAN NOT HANDLE. SO THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND NO ONE WANTS TO BE A THUG OR SOME CRIMINAL AND THE PRISON SYSTEM’S POPULATION WILL DIMINISH IF A PERSON TRULY HAS AN OPPORTUNITY OF WHICH IS THE RIGHT TO LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.        PAGE # 7                 CLOUD WITH A SILVER LINING                                                    a commentary by BROTHER  TAALIK  IBN’RAD           DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS SORT OF MIND BOGGLING TO ME? WELL, THAT IS THE LOOK ON SOME PEOPLE’S FACES WHEN YOU TELL THEM YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN GOD. WHY IS THIS? FIRST OF ALL MOST DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS NOT A PERSON OR THING IT IS A TITLE FOR SOMEONE OR SOMETHING. JUST AS A POLICEMAN IS NOT A CERTAIN PERSON IT IS A TITLE. PRESIDENT IS A TITLE, TO USE JUST PRESIDENT WE DON'T KNOW YOU ARE TALKING IN REFERENCE TO GEORGE BUSH OR GEORGE WASHINGTON. GOD IS ONLY THAT OF WHICH HAS FORCE & POWER. THOR OF GREEK MYTHOLOGY WAS A GOD HIS POWER WAS THAT OVER THUNDER AND LIGHTNING, ESTER WAS THE GOD WHOSE POWER WAS OVER FERTILITY AND SO ON. THE AVERAGE HUMAN WOULD SUBMIT TO AND WORSHIP SUCH GODS. AT ONE TIME IN THE HISTORY OF MEN CERTAIN ANIMALS WERE CONSIDERED A GOD BECAUSE OF THEIR POWER OR MYSTERIOUSNESS. HOWEVER, NO ONE IN MODERN TIMES WORSHIP THOR ANYMORE OR GIVE HONOR TO THE CROCODILE, AS MEN’S KNOWLEDGE INCREASED AS HIS OWN POWER INCREASED HE FOUND THOR UNWORTHY OF WORSHIP AS HE IS BUT A MYTH AND THE CROCODILE COULD BE FALLEN WITH A GUN SHOT, THIS MADE THE PEOPLE WHO DEVELOPED RELIGION A PROBLEM.       EVERYTIME THEY FOUND SOMETHING TO WORSHIP THE GOD WAS FOUND TO HAVE NO POWER OR EASILY FELL BY A WEAPON MADE BY MEN. OF COURSE A WEAPON MADE BY MEN COULD NOT FALLEN A GOD? THE CONCEPT OF GOD AS A SPIRIT WAS FOUNDED, SOMETHING THAT CAN ONLY BE FELT NEVER SEEN OR PROVED TO EVER EXISTED OR EXIST THUS THE FOLLOWING CONCEPT IN THE BELIEF IN THE UNSEEN. I WONDER HOW THIS SORT OF THINKING IS SO EASILY ACCEPTED BY HUMAN BEINGS WHEN THE BRAIN TELLS US IF IT CAN’T BE RECOGNIZED BY OUR SENSES OF FEEL, TASTE, TOUCH, SMELL OR HEARING HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT SUCH EXISTS? EVERY ANIMAL HAS DEVELOPED THE AFOREMEN-TION SENSES, WHY HAS NONE DEVELOPED A SENSE TO SOMETHING OTHER?         RELIGION DEVELOPS THE CONCEPT OF THE SPIRIT GOD THAT CAN NOT BE SEEN ONLY FELT, IT CAN NOT BE PAGE # 2                  TOUCHED BUT IT CAN BE FELT.IF IT IS TRULY A SPIRIT HOW CAN SUCH BE FELT WHEN IT IS NOT PHYSICAL. SOME SAY IT IS LIKE THE WIND, THIS IS A POOR ANSWER FOR EVEN THOU AIR MAY NOT BE SEEN, WE CAN COLOR AIR WITH A SMOKE SO IT CAN BE SEEN. CERTAIN GASES CAN NOT BE SEEN OR DETECTED BY SMELL BUT WE PUT COLOR OR ODOR IN THEM SO WE CAN DETECT SUCH, ALTHOU AT TIMES WE CAN’T SEE AIR THERE IS NO DOUBT IT EXISTS AND OUR SENSES CONFORM SUCH. RELIGION ASKS US TO BELIEVE IN WHAT WE CAN’T SEE AND WHY IS THIS? WE MUST BELIEVE BECAUSE THE GOD CAN’T BE BROUGHT BEFORE US SO THAT IT MAY BE PROPERLY EXAMINED. WE ARE TOLD TO BELIEVE IN THE GOD AND BELIEVE IN THE PEOPLE THAT CLAIM THAT THIS GOD BROUGHT US A MESSAGE AND WE MUST TRUST THESE PEOPLE THEY ARE TELLING US THE TRUTH. I QUESTION THOSE WHO WOULD BRING ME SOMETHING THAT IS UNNATURAL AND NO EVIDENCE OF SUPPORT IN A HISTORICAL SENSE AS PART OF ANYONE’S HISTORY.         I AM NOT SAYING WHETHER THIS GOD EXISTS OR IT DOESN’T AS FOR ME I AM OPEN MINDED BUT I WILL NOT ACCEPT HALF ANSWERED RESPONSE TO LOGICAL QUESTIONS OF WHICH TO BELIEVE IN RELIGION YOU ARE ASKED NOT TO QUESTION OR USE LOGIC OR COMMON SENSE. I MUST ALSO SAY VERY CLEARLY I AM NOT ANTI-RELIGION AS RELIGION HAS MADE ME WHO AND WHAT I AM BUT WE SHOULD SEEK TO QUESTION AND WANT TO LEARN OF THE ORIGIN OF THINGS SO WE CAN GAIN BETTER UNDERSTANDING. SINCE WE OURSELVES DON’T UNDERSTAND WE GET ANGRY AT THOSE WHO QUESTION OUR BELIEFS OR WE AS THE CHURCH FOLK SAY BACKSLIDE. WE BACKSLIDE DUE TO THE WEAKNESS IN SELF, AS SIN HAS BEEN MADE TO LOOK GOOD AS WELL AS OUR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE IN WHAT WE SAY WE BELIEVE.  SO WHEN WE GET ANGRY AT ANOTHER BECAUSE THEY CHOOSE NOT TO BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU BELIEVE OR BELIEVE NOT IN GOD AT ALL, WE ARE REALLY ANGRY AT OURSELVES. IT IS NOT WISE TO BELIEVE IN SOMETHING JUST BECAUSE OUR PARENTS OR OTHERS ARE DOING IT, IGNORING PROPER RESEARCH AND STUDY. STUDY WILL MAKE US STRONGER IN OUR BELIEF AS BELIEF WILL TURN INTO FACTS AND THE EVIDENCE WILL SUPPORT SUCH OR IT CAN ALSO VERIFY THE WEAKNESSES DISCUSSED IN THIS ARTICLE. LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS MORE NEXT TIME.PAGE #9               CLOUD WITH A SILVER LINING                                               a commentary by BROTHER TAALIK  IBN’RAD           LAST TIME I BELIEVED OUR LITTLE TALK WAS ABOUT RELIGION. FOR PERSONAL REASONS MYSELF & THE BELIEF IN A RELIGIOUS BELIEF SYSTEM BASED ON THE BELIEF IN A GOD THAT HAS NEVER SHOWN IT’S, HIS, OR HER FACE ARE AT ODDS AT THIS TIME BUT I MUST MAKE IT CLEAR THAT I RESPECT THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO DO SO, I JUST WISH FOLKS WOULD RESEARCH & UNDERSTAND THE BEGINNINGS OF THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM & WHAT IS TAUGHT. WE SHOULD NOT BECOME ANGRY WHEN OTHERS CHOOSE NOT TO BELIEVE OR EVEN MAKE MOCKERY OF OUR BELIEFS. HOWEVER, IF MY BELIEF IS THAT IF A CAR IS IN NEED OF REPAIR AND IT WILL RUN UPON APPLICATION OF WHAT I FEEL NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED BUT WHAT ANOTHER BELIEVES IS WRONG UPON THE ACTION OF THAT BELIEF THE ENGINE CONTINUES TO BE SILENT THEN WHOSE BELIEF IS MORE THAN JUST BELIEF?      IF THE CAR IS RUNNING THE SUGGESTION IS NO LONGER BELIEF IT IS FACT. MY QUESTION IS HAVE THE VARIOUS BELIEF SYSTEMS CAUSED THE CAR TO RUN OR IS IT STILL IN DISREPAIR? MAYBE IT’S JUST ME BUT THESE BELIEF SYSTEMHAVE BEEN AROUND AMONG MEN FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS SO HAVE RAZORS, THE RAZORS TILL THIS DAY HELP MEN KEEP THEMSELVES LOOK CIVILIZED & PRESENTABLE. THE RAZOR HAS BEEN AN ASSET TO ALL MEN REGARDLESS TO RACE, CREED, OR COLOR IT IS A BENEFICIAL TOOL. ANY FORM OF RELIGION IS SUPPOSE TO BE BENEFICIAL AS WELL A TOOL TO BRING THE HUMAN BEING INTO THE FAMILY OF DIVINITY AND PEACE. IN MY EXPERIENCE OF RELIGION I HAVE FOUND THAT YES IT HAS IT’S BENEFITS IF ONE SHOULD OBEY THE DOCTORINE THAT IS TAUGHT BUT AT THE SAME TIME WHEN I LOOK AT THE SAD AND PITIFUL CONDITION OF THE HUMAN BEING WHEN RELIGION SHOULD CAUSE A BETTER ENVIROMENT THIS LEAVES ME WITH QUESTIONS. SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY DEVELOP A HATRED FOR YOU IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE AS THEY BELIEVE OR DON’T BELIEVE IN GOD AT ALL, AT THE SAME TIME THEY SAY THEY LOVE EVERYBODY INCLUDING THEIR ENEMIES.           WARS HAVE BEEN MADE DUE TO THE INFLUENCE OF RELIGION BECAUSE CERTAIN PERSONS CLAIM GOD WANTS THEM TO BE IN A CERTAIN PLACE OR HOLD POWER.PAGE #2                 FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCE WHEN ALL I DO IS ASK QUESTIONS IN RELATION TO ONE’S RELIGION OR SHOW A PERSON HOW SUCH IS HUMOUROUS OR CONTRADICTORY I HAVE FELT HATRED COMING FROM INDIVIDUALS. I HAVE AN AUNT RIGHT NOW THAT DOESN’T SPEAK TO ME BECAUSE THE BELIEF SYSTEM SHE INTRODUCED TO ME I NO LONGER BELIEVE IN AND I’VE FOUND THINGS IN IT THAT IS NOT PERFECT BUT WAS PERFECT WHEN I BELIEVED. SHE LIKES TO MAKE MOCKERY OF OTHERS BELIEFS BUT SHE HERSELF CAN NOT HANDLE WHAT MAY APPEAR TO BE MOCKERY WHEN IT COMES TO HER OWN. IN MY OPINION RELIGION IS MUCH LIKE A SNICKER CANDY BAR, EITHER YOU’LL BELIEVE THE CANDY MAKER’S ADVERTISEMENT OR YOU WON’T.          ON THE 700 CLUB I HEAR PAT ROBINSON TALK ABOUT THE BELIEF IN JESUS AND LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. HE WENT ON TO TALK ABOUT SADAAM HUSSIEN & HIS FAMILY, HIS COUNTRY AND FOR A PERSON WHO IS SUPPOSE TO BE ABOUT LOVE I COULD HEAR THE HATRED IN HIS VOICE FOR SADAAM AND FOR ISLAM IN GENERAL, MATTTER OF FACT DURING THIS PERIOD OF TIME I BELIEVE HIS SON DID MAKE A STATEMENT IN THAT ISLAM WAS A VIOLENT RELIGION. I GUESS IT’S PLENTY OF LOVE AS LONG AS YOU DO OR BELIEVE THE WAY WE FEEL YOU SHOULD BE. IT IS AMAZING THAT THE MAJOR RELIGIONS TEACH LOVE & PEACE BUT IT HAS CAUSED WAR, MURDERS, FAMILY BREAKUPS, TOTAL CONFUSION & TURMOIL. RELIGION TEACHES AGAINST THE HEATHENS AND THEIR SINS, AT THE SAME TIME RELIGION SUFFERS THE SAME ILLS WITHIN IT’S RANKS AS SOCIETY IN GENERAL WHO ARE CONTRARY TO GOD’S LAW IN FACT MANY RELIGIOUS BELIEVERS DO NOT DEPEND ON THEIR GOD FOR A JOB TO MAKE A LIVING THEY DEPEND ON THE SINNERS FOR THAT JOB. THE SINNERS PRODUCE THE FOOD, LAWS, MONEY AND EVERYTHING THAT IS NEEDED THE MAJORITY OF RELIGIOUS BELIEVERS PRODUCE NOTHING AND DEPEND MUCH ON THE SINNER WHO ULTIMATELY WILL GO TO A HELL BUT WITHOUT THE SINNER THESE GOODY TWO SHOE FOLKS COULD NOT EAT AS THEY ARE CONSUMERS NOT PRODUCERS BUT AGAIN THEY WORSHIP A GOD THAT IS SUPPOSE TO BE INDEPENDENT AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR HIS, MAN THIS IS DEEP IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT. PROBLEM HERE IS THAT IN MOST RELIGIOUS SYS-TEMS DO NOT WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT IT.PAGE # 3                  WE SHOULD REALLY BE CAREFUL WHEN A BELIEF SYSTEM NO MATTER IF IT IS RELIGIOUS OR POLITICAL ETC. TEACHES US NOT TO THINK INDEPENDENTLY OUTSIDE THE TEACHINGS OF THAT SYSTEM ALSO WHEN WE DECIDE TO STAY WITHIN THE HOUSING OF A PARTICULAR TRAIN OF THOUGHT WE BECOME INTELLECTUALLY TRAPPED. WHEN WE BECOME TRAPPED ANOTHER CAN GUESS VERY EASILY AT WHAT YOU’LL DO NEXT AND THE FUTURE FATE OF YOUR LIFE. FOR EXAMPLE IF I AM A MARTIAL ARTIST TRAINED IN TAE KWON DO AND THIS IS THE ONLY STYLE I KNOW, IF MY OPPONENT KNOWS THIS IT BECOMES A WEAKNESS AS MY OPPONENT MAY ATTACK ME IN A MANNER THAT THIS STYLE HAS NO DEFENSE. I CAN BE EXPLOITED BY AN OPPONENT NOT ONLY KNOWLEDGABLE IN MY STYLE BUT VARIOUS STYLES, THIS IS WHY BRUCE LEE WAS A PHENOMENOM HE BELIEVED ONE SHOULD NOT BE STUNTED IN GROWTH BY ONE STYLE, AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH NO ONE COULD DEFEAT BRUCE LEE.              IF WE CHOOSE TO BELIEVE NOT ONLY MUST WE BELIEVE WE MUST OBEY THE LAWS & DOCTORINE OF THAT BELIEF AND IN ORDER TO AVOID BEING STUNTED WE SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO EXPLORE OUTSIDE THAT SYSTEM SO THAT WE’LL FIND THINGS THAT WILL SUPPORT OUR FAITH AS WELL AS BEING ABLE TO BETTER COMMUNI-CATE WITH OTHERS. LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF OTHERS IN DOING SO WE MAY FIND THAT PERHAPS WE’RE NOT SO DIFFERENT AFTER ALL, IF WE PRACTICE THE AFOREMENTIONTHE RELIGIOUS SYSTEMS CAN BECOME AN ASSET IN THE UPLIFTMENT OF THE HUMAN FAMILY THAT SURELY HAS LOST IT’S WAY. THERE SHOULD BE NO SCANDAL IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, THERE SHOULD BE NO FIGHTING AMONG THE PEOPLE WHO CLAIM THEY SEEK PEACE AN RIGHTEOUSNESS. THERE SHOULD BE NO PALESTINIAN AND ISRAELI CONFLICT OR A WAR ON TERRORISM OF WHERE A JIHAD IS EXCLAIMED.         THIS SERIES OF THOUGHT OF COURSE IS ONLY MY OPINION AND WE ARE BORN DIFFERENT, WE CARRY DIFFERENT THOUGHTS, SO DOES THIS MEAN JUST BECAUSE I DO NOT LOOK LIKE OR THINK LIKE YOU, I DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE IN PEACE?     COMMENTS?.....angelsnupnup7@taalikibnrad.myeweb.net
