metabolic syndrome

howdy gang, how are you all doing? is it cold where you are? is surly  here,yikes! who turned down the thermostat! at least the sun has been shining parts of the day each day.  does anyone else kind a go into a semi conscious state during winters, where they just want to sit around and only get up to do things they absolutly have too. do you notice increase in weight and appetite? do you zone out for long periods of time? do you suffer obesity hypertension and high cholesterol and other health problems? I know I do.

I know I have been dealing with metabolic syndrome for like 40 years. when I was younger I didnt know that is what I had, but anyway was just reading in a pubmed article, short and sweet but informative article about it. they are now starting to call metabolic syndrome as winter metabolism. why? well they are starting to realize that obesity hypertension and other parameters of metabolic syndrome (MS) is a winter response, weight gain along with hypertension and high cholesterol is a survival response (I have been calling it that for a long time) to signals of winter (low vitad3) due to lack of sunshine (I am sure there are other signals to the body too like quality of food and amount of sunshine hitting the pineal gland through the eyes) is a triggor for this.

Another feature of winter is lower food quantity and quality. this is probably a triggor too, (you know all the dieting people do for weight loss; weight loss alone can be a triggor for overeating to regain weight to survive the winter you keep imposing on it by NOT EATING enough. there I said it. so STOP DIETING! okay I yelled enough.

So if your in a survival or long term stressful situation that is depleting nutrients or your undereating or eating poorly, the last thing your body wants is the added stress of forced exercise!! exercise is a stress on an already stressed out system. so you feel lazy and unmotivated. well duh!!! you would think we would get this, you think I would get this (well finally did) that laziness and over eating is a winter response (even in summer)now I will not force exercise anymore, will do so only when I get the signal to do so.

so metabolic syndrome is a survival mechinsm in a enviroment of poor quality food or lack of certain nutrients like minerals and vitad3 and other nutrients (like protein especially plant proteins). for me I found if I drop my vitad3 below 5000 or 6000 iu my symptoms gradually start to show their ugly faces, it  takes about 2 or 3 weeks to start to manifest itself. but once I get the amount back up after a week I start to notice the symptoms resolving themselves. remember I did megadosing for almost a whole year, before decreasing to a maintenance of 2000 iu per day as recommended by doctors. so now my dose will remain at 5-6 thousand per day until furthur notice. obviously I lost the ability to make it myself (you all know how much I love the sun) I am starting to sleep better and feeling better, I did add some vitamines supplements like c, b, and some minerals a little bit of fiber and still take my cinnomon and chromium too.

alas!!! the road is long and hard and the view has not always been very pleasant, in fact it has been downright annoying, depressing and frustrating.  can you relate? yikes where is the end of the rainbow, never mind that, where is that darn rainbow? cannot seem to locate it. oh well will have to carry on as I can still see light at the end of this path.

thanks my dear followers, hope this was informative and helpful. still working on my dinosuars, did a dinosaur shirt, learning how to draw a t rex, triceratops, dilpilosaurs?, cant remember all the names. need to practice some more.

winter, what I have learned and progress

gardenplans 026

winter in my backyard, or front which ever you prefer. at least the early short january thaw which came early and melted everything.  Novemeber fought off sinus infections, the whole month needed anitbitics started to feel better and then I was down again feeling like I dont know what, lightheaded, faint, headachy, the runs, weak, sleepy all the time, humm what is going on here, sinus congestion problems but no infection.

I was thinking to my self what the tarnation is going on here?, I am eating better taking my vita supplements vitad3, exercising (have had energy to do so regularly) clearer minded and then this. could this have been a healing crisis? it lasted 2weeks then gone as quickly as it came it faded away. thank goodness.

now for what I learned in relation to diet, exercise, physiology, chemistry etc, one, weight reducing diets kill by degree. two, low carb diets, low cal diets, low fat diets, exercise for weight loss kill by degrees without you even realizing it right away. three, the more diets you do and the more weight loss you have had, weight up weight down, rinse and then repeat, the closer to death you are. while your breathing and working and doing your thing, your dying and don’t even see it.

Four, the medical community sees metabolic syndrome, type 2, type 3 diabetes, plaque buildup, high cholesterol, hypertension, as diseases of obesity. obesity is considered a moral weakness of inability to eat less and exercise more and thus is not a disease thus the doctor is not responsible for the poor results of their treatment.

Five,  the treatments given by doctors and other professionals to cure these diseases is diet and exercise. If one loses even 10 percent of their weight they improve all the parameters of these diseases. sound familiar?

Six, you can lose this 10 percent and still be obese. humm something sounds fishy here.

Seven, that if you eat all your fruits and veggies and eat as recommended by the “experts” (you all know how I feel about “experts” right?) you don’t need supplements. sound familiar? I learned that yes you do need supplementation, sometimes pretty heafty amounts when your fighting heavy duty health condtions like obesity metabolic syndrome etc.

Eight, Doctors do not have all the answers and sometimes refuse to allow new information and experiences to expand their mind when what was believe to be true is found not to be.

Ninth, I also learned that I have to take my health into my own hands, do my research, learn from my experiences and the expeirences of others, use my reasoning skill based on all that I learned about How we are designed by Jehovah, what happened in my life, what researchers have said that are not listend to by the mainstream everyone. I have learned to take everything I hear on the news, in papers, on the internet, etc, with a grain of salt with a i will put it on the back burner because I do not believe what I heard and dont trust it.

I  learned too, our bodies are very well designed by Jehovah, despite our sinful imperfection our bodies work pretty much like they should (except for serious genetic defects some people get which I feel sorry for them that really disable them)when doctors, us, people in general, do not understand something the body does they try to force it to change to a preconceived idea of what it should be. basically they treat symptoms. which has its place don’t get me wrong, sometimes treating hte symptoms allows you time (and some comfort too) to find the culprit and work on it. It also allows a better quality of life if your unable to fix the underlying problem.

eleventh, I learend our bodies have two goals, one is keeping you alive and upright, second your wellbeing. It turns out that what we may describe as auto immune disease, metabolic disease, obesity, food addictions (I love this one) is actually the body working here to keep you alive and upright. The body will literally rob from one part of our body to supply another with nutrients missing in your diet in sufficient amounts. arthritis, could it be the body is stealing the sulfer from your joints to supply the heart and brain?or stealing from the intestines to get at the sulfer? or your stomach? hence all the stomach problems that doctors give immune suppressing drugs? or the brain, is it so deficient in nutrients it has to form plaques on it’s neurons to protect them from the toxic enviroment of oxygen, sugar laden blood?  Yet doctors treat it like it is a disease not a survival mechism and try to suppress it.

what about obesity and it’s other symptoms?I learned that all this is a symptom of malnutrition. if you don’t eat enough food for purposes of losing weight or any reason really, your body cannabalises itself, proteins for one, fat, water, glycogen stores empty out etc cortisol and adrenalin is released, if these things are not replaced adequatly due to undereating the stress continues and if you add exercise you just added gasoline to the fire.

What does all of this mean then? Not exacly sure, but one thing for sure the trail has veered off to another direction for me. now I understand why diets failed me. it does not address the underlying problem. now I understand why when you start a new diet and stick to it for a while you start to feel good have more exercise and seem to do well for a while even losing some weight. a reducing diet which ever you choose wiht exercise especially is a stress. what does the body do in reponse to stess? it releases adreanlin and cortisol  cortisol is a feel good lets get up and dance hormone.

It is also a antiinflammation hormone too. now I understand when your aches and pains stop hurting it is not because your getting healthier but because you added a stress the body has to go deal with. your body can only handle so many stressors at once so it priotises, remember its first job is keeping you alive. so now it has to put other healing and repairing jobs on hold. now I also understand why the desire to eat sugary stuff and overeat on them is delayed making one think their diet is working. these are all false sensations of success.

This is why you get a healing crisis once you fix the underlying problem, your body was so focused for so long (if your health problems and obesity was long standing)on keeping you alive it could not afford to use any nutrients or didnt have it available to deal with toxins and damage to cells and give full repair. it could  not raise your metabolism or temp or motivate you to exercise and live life, it was too strained keeping you alive.  Understand what I mean?

this is what I was experiencing, it lasted so long because there was alot to fix and I  had all the nutrients, caloires protein fats etc it needed for full repair and to fight off virus and bacteria it had to put up with (keeping them at bay but not really getting rid of them hence you get sick, better, repeat, because the underlying infection or problem is not solved just held in check for a whilethus getting sinus infections over and over and over again over many years.) hence now because I did not listen to doctors anymore, listen to “experts” anymore but decided to do my own research and listen to alternative ideas I was able to understand what was going on. I still listen to my doctor on so many things I do appreciate all thehelp they have given me in the past with my problems (chronic sinus infections, chronic broncitis, anxiety attacks, headaches that goe on and on for months, sleeping problems etc) after all I realize they dont’ know everything either and are learning themselves.

All my problems were because of malnorishement. I am under the impression that I do not make vitad3 in the skin. i did all the other things like eat better,  plenty of sun exposure without sunscreen taking glucose tolerance supplements, lowering my carbs as much as I could comfortably do, taking immune stimulating herbs and other things experiementing with different herbs and things, something was missing. once I had been on vitad3 for many, many months then it started to click. I was finally showing some really cool progress. it is like vitad3 was the switch that made everything else turn on.

Ithink I will post my progress in another post to avoid a too long post. thanks all for reading down to this point. posting here, posting there, posting everywheres, posting up /down on a trotting horse, posting on the posting. la la la la tripping over my post. lol sorry just being silly tonight. need to go to bed. I am thinking about doing a post later on about dinosaurs anyone here like dinosaurs?

thanks a bunch you silly whipper snappers for reading all the way down this very long slope of post.

 

European Commission Announces “Full Engagement” in Agenda 21

European Commission Announces “Full Engagement” in Agenda 21.

the word I hate the most well  maybe second is the word of they were forced, they r forced to live lives of austerity, lives of burdensome taxes and regulations, that word forced. and the one thing I hate even more is their list of problems (whether true or not) and the solution is to give more power and money to other humans from other humans (who caused the problem in their eyes)who get to force their utopian ideals as if they have any more wisdom ability or even right to do so then the average individual who is minding their own business. where do they get these illusions of graduer from? well take a guess, (if you do one act of worship then it will be all yours (the kingdoms of the world) satan he has illuisons of graduer, he knows he couldn’t get away with rebellion from God in fact he expects to be destroyed as he is not smarter or stronger than Jehovah, so he has inspired people to have the same attitude as him,he has to be worshipped thorugh other humans since he cannot materialize. he knew when he was thinking about rebelling in the beginning ofhis existance as satan, that he would be executed for it, he was willling to give up his everlasting life in heaven for temporary worship of other humans his desire so consumed him he stepped out into everlasting death. this desire blinded him to the future conseqences. this is why governments do crazy and creepy and unjust things. they have been inspired by satan to believe they are superior to their fellow man who is not in positions of authority in gov. satan has to get them to believe it, he even backs them up in their false prophecies, he has to make these people believe they are somehow smarter and wiser than others and that forcing their policeis on others via genocide and robbery and murder are acceptable ways to achieve thier promised paradise. the optimum words are arrogance and force. both I hate with a passion. Jehovah never forces anyone to worship Jehovah has wonderful personality, satan does not.

 

some ramblings for today

Jeremiah 10:23 “I well know o Jehovah that man’s way does not belong to him, it does not belong to man who is walking to dirct his own step.”

Proverbs 4:19 “The way of the wicked is like the darkness, they do not know what makes them stumble.”

So people today without considering the bible to  much or at all are trying to decide right and wrong and how to solve problems, to make things work, morally, spritiually, economically, and even physically, like health care, how to solve the problem of everyone getting sufficient care.

It seems the more they try to solve problems the worse they make it, for example, the war on drugs, instead of making drugs hard to get they only made it more profitable and more dangerous. Obama care instead of making decent health care available to all they just now made it harder for anyone to afford decent care quickly, efficiently, and at lower costs. Unless that was their intent, keep making problems worse to keep justifying more taxes and more government intrusion and trespassing over people’s rights and liberties. They claimed that the war on terrorism is to make us safer to protect our liberties that the terrorists hate, but yet our liberty is eroding daily and our peace and security even faster.

Proverbs 6:12-19 speaks about what Jehovah hates, read those verses and see who do you see doing these things all the time both in positions of authority and among the common man whom you rub shoulders with daily?

Verse 12 says: “A useless and wicked man walks about with crooked speech.”

How often do those in positions of authority whether in politics, corporations, science, education, etc have been walking about with crooked speech?

People cannot seem to agree on right and wrong, truth or false, good or bad. So is it any wonder there are abortions, wars, poverty, broken marriages, poorly brought up children, and poor outcomes in health care for chronic illnesses like type 2 diabetes or auto immune disorders? Is it any wonder people are losing their conscience of right and wrong and are acting accordingly? Some people are so confused they become paralyzed and do nothing at all.

People are like the waves of the sea, they keep going which ever way the wind blows them. People lack true conviction because they cannot figure out what is right or wrong good or bad. And who are the winds (outside of Satan being responsible for stirring up the sea of rebellious mankind)?  They are what I like to call ‘creepy faces’ the ones who claim to and people look up to, to teach them what is the best way to solve the problems or handle different situations but who basically do not know what they are saying.  who are actually serving up poisoned waters (teachings that poison peoples minds and hearts bitter lies they drink up that moves them to do bad or harmful things. all the while thinking they are doing right when they are not.

Habakkuk explains just how I feel, probably how you feel too,

Hab 1:3-4, 13 just some of what he asks Jehovah. “Why do you make me witness wrongdoing and why do you tolerate oppression, why are destruction and violence before me? and why do quarreling and conflicts abound?” you see he was human just like you and me, he had the same feelings too about the injustice going on at that time which we see repeated again in our time.  VS 4 “so law is paralyzed and justice i never carried out for the wicked surround the righteous, that is why justice is perverted.”

Awe the world going from bad to worse. yet people still insist that they can reform the world into a peaceful and prospers place, but alas man has been trying to do that for thousands of years, the problem is not how to solve the problems that we see, most know what the solution is, we need to bring forth Justice and law and everyone must work to obey and protect it, but alas, people have become confused about what justice and law is. Why? Because they forget we are not designed to rule over ourselves without Devine guidance and protection. People are focusing to much value on human endeavors to solve problems, subdue wicked and bad people who interfere with the good people, they are in effect saying we worship man or the creature, rather than the creator.

This is why man will never solve the problems of  the world, because the wicked people and demons are the problem, along with our sinful natures they exploit for their own glory and enrichment. It is not the method of system it is the controller of the system that is the problem. Only Jehovah can remove the wicked (and decide who is wicked and not) and remove sin and death. ONly he has the wisdom, the knowledge, the authority, the balance of love, justice, power and wisdom that is supreme and we could never match ever.

Another thing i was ramling on about in my head is how many times we waste time, energy, money, and resist improvments under the false idea that we are somehow parasites on planet earth or that some are too greedy or selfish to be trusted with private property or running their own affairs (as long as they are not directly harming others and are allowing them the same freedom) but somehow that a group calling themselves government are some how more moral or something. Take the situation of the bonner bridge I have been reading about, the enviromentalists want it gone, but don’t say it in so many words, they just recite some fake enviromental damage they are doing having  the bridge there. so instead of using funds to build the new bridge they expected to build and funds were already set aside for it, they have to use it to fight ‘creepy faced’ enviromentalists who use taxpayer funds, hence they have unlimited spending and time to keep everyone else suspended and broke, to stop the rebuild of hte bridge because for some reason they want to cut off the outer banks to people.

So now they are suffering some serious safty issues of that bridge and they had to close it down for serious repairs, if they could of built the new bridge they wanted when they wanted it and had the funds they could dismantled the old bridge. instead of wasting time, and depleting their funds fighting every little frivilous lawsuit based on endangerd species act, the clean water acts and the you name it act. What is funny sad about the whole situation, is the bridge and people are not harming any crittor there, the enviromentalists are being paid by gov and corporations using taxpayer funds to literally dry up the economics of the outer banks so they can come in and make it part of the wildlife humans must keep out project for pennies on the dollar, basically robbing those people and the visitors who enjoy it.

it seems to me it is a land grab. using phoney science and enviromentalism  to do it. Get around due process as it were, and what is sad, is the government and courts are allowing it. Does anyone smell conspiracy to rob people of land, liberty, life and happiness? humm smells rotten to me. what did you just read? Jehovah hates lying, hands shedding innocent blood and accumulating riches that does not belong to him.

it is such a pretty and enjoyable place no wonder they want to steal it from the people outside of consitutional requirements. they can’t stand the fact the common folk actually get to enjoy nature, remember they consider us a plague to nature and should never touch it see it let alone enjoy it.  especially since they cannot do so because they don’t want to rub shoulders with us common folk, we are so dirty in their eyes. But remember the real owners sees is all and is making judgements and purposes to reclaim the earth for all who love him. isaiah 65:21-25

hi there, I was just bored trying to figure out how to illustrate in a drawing what i wanted to show, but couldn’t figure out how to do it in a way you would be able to understand, some of my drawings can be a bit messy and disorganized, like my house is.

anyway, you know how you spend so many years of your life trying to solve a problem and you try one thing then another until after a few decades you start to wonder if you will ever find the solution to a serious problem your dealing with? Then each time you think you found it and it seems to be working then it doesn’t? you know how dissappointing that is. You look for answers and try different suggestions from the experts who swear it should work, but it never does and then they accuse you of not trying hard enough or cheating or whatever? And it doesn’t matter what the problem is either.

then you find something that actually starts to work out, it seems to be consistant for a while, and then in your mind you get a sense of relief, and excitement, but then your excitement is squashed by the realization what if this is just another fluke? You examine the solution and all it’s parts, the problems it has solved up to that point and wonder did I find it? then you look at yourself and say don’t get to excited yet, give it time.

Well I decided to try supplementation with mega doses of vitad3, thinking if I am deficient in this despite all efforts to get it up naturally through eating properly and getting plenty of sunshine, I decided to it in mega doses, about 40,000 iu at first for about a month then dropped it down to about 20,000 iu per day for about 2 months then down to 10,000 iu for a couple of weeks, now that I am getting plenty of sun I stopped the pills. I mean according to the research this should work for all that stuff that comes with metabolic syndrome.

Does it? what say I?  I mean it couldn’t solve this complex of a problem can it? after all that is too simplistic right? well here we go I have been sleeping through the night now for about 2 or 3 weeks for a change, can’t believe it. havent done this in 10 years or more. I always would have the symptoms of low blood sugar in the night (despite a normal glucose tolerance test)have to get up, eat in order to go back to sleep. I mean 2 or 3 am  night after night for years is a bit annoying don’t you think? It was downright frustrating and enraging, I would be so tired and so hungry and jittery like crazy I would probably of bitten someone’s head off if you said something stupid to me at that time, lol.

I have not had to do this now for almost 3 weeks. I am like this is not a fluke is it? And cravings for junk food? almost gone, sugar cravings almost gone, fewer and fewer epidsodes of jitteriness, cravings for sugar,(except I do get a little during pms time that lasts a couple of days which is still alot less then before) and yes I can now get a little hungry during the day and not eat anything because I am not hungry enough and have that little bit hunger shut off and I thus can fast a little bit comfortably, I mean really? where have you been all my life you wonderful sunshine vitamin? why are doctors so brainwashed in the old ideas? well we won’t go there right now.

other benefits? more energy, not as headachy as before (which was probably the glucose drops and adrenalin response)better exercise response, my response to exercise in gaining in stamina, muscle strength, etc was minimal, now it is like I am not working as hard and getting a very good response.  Coincidence? I think not. Being overwieght I have to be careful to avoid injury from using the treadmill, going for walks and using the weights. I used it today wearing my gorilla feet (fila four toes) since my treadmill has such a good cushion I want to protect my knees from to much cushion stress, and did some weights, despite pmsing, which usually makes me kind of sluggish and not able to exercise much.

my knees were bothering me last week and not sure why so I figured the cushion of the treadmill plus my really air cushion shoes may have been to much or it could of been the weights not sure. so apparently vitad3 is just to vital for glucose handling to treat it lightly and doctors have not gotten the memo yet.

 So why is it so important then? well apparently if your glucose setpoint is set to high due to resistance at the brain blood brain barrier normal amounts of glucose can’t get through and your brain registers it as starvation, and sends signals to raise sugar levels via adranline (especially if insulin levels are too high)and cortisol and glucagon,but as the concentration of the blood gets higher then some sugar can make it through via saturation, but this fix is temporary and very damaging over long term (hence glycation, fat accumulation, pancreatic damage and fat accumulation on liver and heart and stomach.) hyperglycemia is compensation for this resistance, hence sugar in the blood for too long is damaging so your body uses fat cells to proliferate to suck it up and produce fat to get it out  of the blood as fast as possible since the liver can’t keep up and the muscles cells can’t use it as they are resistant (because of lack of vitad3 and cholesterol sulfate)which drives the glucose below setpoint (even tho in the normal healthy range by the numbers)the brain registers this as low blood sugar since it aint getting any, hence the cycle repeats. you get hungry for high gi foods to drive it up really fast and high so the brain gets it before it all gets converted to fat, and of course the cells are forced to use fat for fuel since insulin is not needed for them to access it, and if the insulin levels are high the fat cells do not release and hence the cells need a advanced surge of fat before you eat, hence high triglcerides when insulin levels are low, with me so far?

then the fat cells have to proliferate even more as each cell is hindered by their lack of enough cholesterol sulfate, vitad3 and other nutrients, to handle all that sugar. sugar is very toxic in large amounts it sticks to everything and reacts to oxygen, it is like gasoline.fat is like oil, or diesel, fructose like rocket fuel.

so fat cells also become damaged over time and thus you get even fatter but this is getting to detailed just suffice to say without enough fat soluable vitamins, and cholesterol sulfate in our systems we are doomed to suffer a long, slow, agonizing death. not unless you can abort it by correcting the underlying deficienies.

so my guess is I have lowered my glucose setpoint, a good thing, and need less sugar in my blood for the brain to get it’s juice it needs. Sure is nice to be alot more calmer and less hungry everyday, so now I am giving it to my little dog who is fat to see if it will help her too. time will tell. 

thank you

Howdy there friends, this post is to thank people for following my blog, don’t think I didn’t notice it, lol. glad people find some of my stuff interesting enough to take a look, heaven knows I am a pretty boring person overall, but anyway thanks.

little update, I found my supplementation to be alot more helpful then I thought, I am starting to sleep through the night, not waking up in the middle of the night with the jitters, and extreme hunger, my low carb diet is like wow a breeze, my appetite has toned down quite a bit, gradually I am feeling better (not feeling like I am on the verge of the flu or something) and it does’t take a lot of food to feel satiated my meals sizes have reduced for the most part without any effort on my part. dont feel the need to eat alot of sweet stuff, hopfully this trend will continue and I won’t suffer another dissappointment like the quadzillion I suffered in the past when i thought I was on the right path.

this also reminds me of something, so much I hear about how vita min and supplements have little benefit and you can get everything you need from food, WRONG! I realize they are very wrong about this, especially if your suffering a chronic health condition like lupus, or metabolic syndrome or diabetes heart disease or arthritis and the like, supplementation does work, which is probably why they discourage the use,considering who owns the medical community (rockerfellers for one) who feel there are to many people on this planet and we americans live to long (to long in that we collect what we paid in in retirement money they would like to keep for themselves).

And this explains codex almentarius, if supplements didn’t work do you think they would work so hard and spend so much of our money (oops their money) on getting them restricted to non potent amounts? creeps, one thing I can’t stand are lying hypocritical bigoted creeps, sorry about my language, had to vent, lol. after all rockerfellers are behind the heavy vaccination program in africa, probably america too, which sterilizes the women there. many who take them abort as well.

thanks again folks,

religion and science

hi there friends, readers, children and anyone who wants to read this, welcome again to another exciting adventure in wonderland.  Just kidding, I was thinking a few moments ago something that intrigues me. you know people try to use science to prove (among other things that are good in themselves)that God does’t exist, an alternative to how we got here, where are we going, what the purpose of life is, why we die (compared to a sequoira that lives thousands and a turtle that can live 200 years) how our minds work, what is the best way to solve various problems, like health, what is moral what is not, I refer to the series’ what is the right thing to do” at harvard university which can be found on youtube.

now I watched some of that and I was amazed by something. religion, belief in god, a moral satandard set by god, physical laws, etc, is touted as out dated, not scientific, based on superstition and the like. now may I be frank, frank? just kidding, does anyone find this odd? why do I ask? well think about it what is religion? according to the dictionary it is a set of beliefs (in a nutshell) that one advocates and lives by, now man has questions and seeks answers, and wants to know how to solve everyday problems of life we all deal with no matter what generation we are living now or in the past. what sorta laws should we have, what is justice, what is truth, what is solution to economic problems and social and enviromental problems that sorta thing.

now lets compare science, what does science want? doesnt it want answers to the same questions and problems? does it not try to seek answers apart from the spiritual realm? how do they arrive at their conclusions on matters? don’t they first of all test a hypothesis, see what happens and interpret it the best way they know how? dont they confer with other science researchers too to get more ideas on how to interpret results?  don’t they sometimes come to the table already with their belief (religion) with the intention for the most part to find answers in harmony with that belief? example would be, global warming, many scienctis already have their hypothesis and really believe the conclusion will fit their agenda? so do not those who stick to the belief of global warming caused by co2 despite evidence to the contrary being religious? and if you have evidence both ways and one group is advocating one conclusion and another something oppisite and debating about it, does’t that enter the realm of religious dogma then instead of so called true science?

so when they come to a conclusion, is that not a religion? think about it, how do they know the conclusion is correct? how do they know there are no more factors they have not considered yet, example, they study the sun and it is a impressive star (tho a medium star by star standards)and understand alot about magnetics, and hydrogen and helium properties and nuclear fusion and all that  neato stuff, but doesn’t it stop being science and become a religious belief when they start predicting the future of what will happen to the sun and planet earth millions of years in advance? wouldnt we catagorize that as acting as a prophet (a religious realm) rather than so called nonreligious science?

And when they start studying global warming, dont they enter the realm of prophets again when they say what will happen to the earth s climate in decades from now? is that not a religion? is not religion what we call  when people who look for future events who want to understand the world around them? And doesn’t science (whether economic science, physical science, political science  even philosphy, etc) try to figure out what is moral correct, what is just and what laws should be made and followed? is morality and justice the realm of religion? doesn’t religion answer those questions too?

how about man’s interpertation of time and events in the earths’ very long past? is that not entering the realm of religious beliefs when they have to figure out time lines for events, guess what destroyed the dinosaurs, how long life has been here, how the earth was formed what order all things came about and why some went extinct, when they treat their conclusions as fact (I refer to a documentary I just watched, raging planet, or planet earth, can’t remember I believe it was a national geographic series) they spoke in that video series the conclusion they had about how the continents moved, how the planet formed that sorta thing, treating it as fact. how can they really know for sure? is that not based on their interepretations of what evidence they have?

so what happens in religion? well did not people in the past view their enviroment, see evidences of different things and based on what information they have come to conclusions too?  Did they not look at their proof after devling into what they believe was true evidence? for example, did they not learn that when they take certain plants they would have waking dreams? did they not take that evidence and confer with others to come to the conclusions that maybe this was contact with the spirit realm?

now you and I know why they saw visions, we know about many of the ways the mind works, but won’t we be considered supersititious by people in the future as they find other explanations of what was considered scientific now?  do you see where I am going with this? it is considered a scientific fact that there are mental illness that exist and needing medication to control it with their serious side affects, electro shock thearpy cruel confinement and the like, won’t people in the future consider this barbaric and supersititous when they find out that many of these conditions were just personality features (not disease at all)and nutrtional deficiencies they were unaware of in times past? dont people today consider the riturals and human and animal sacrifices as barbaric for the people in the past? would we say they at the time thought this was proper and the way to deal with problems they believed were caused by the spirit realm they believed in?

so really if religion is a belief based on evidence available to people as they understand it, is not science also a belief based on the evidence avaiable as they interpret it? are they really at odds? is it really not just how one interprets it?  we say magnetism, some say magic, we say spritural realm, we say differences in frequency, we say biological funtion of giving birth, others say miracle, some say neurotranmittors affects on the mind, others say feelings, do you see what I mean?

so don’t science and religion both depend on a continuation of searching and understanding our world and adjusting as we find evidences that show us a different understanding? basically doing research and gaining more experience that shows us what we believe is either correct or not? so doesn’t it become a problem for either religion or science when evidence is shown to contradict a past view that it is a unwillingness to adjust our thinking the actual problem rather than religion or science itself? And is the only real difference between religion and science basically one is ‘man centered ‘and the other is ‘God centered’? one says  man will solve all these problems and understand the universe, the other God will teach us and show us how to solve the problems the only real difference? you decide.

 

milky way galaxy

 

I had watched an animation of how our solar system is situated in the milky way galaxy, and how the sun moves at incredible speed (132 miles per second) dragging us along, and how our sun revolves around it’s own sun which then revolves around its own sun, and how long that takes solar system to go complely around the galaxy about 122 billion years, (wow, talk about a long time!!!!!)can you imagine if you were on a space ship going 11 millions miles a day? wow, you could really cover some distance in no time, but really with regard to the galaxy and universe that is like going down the street in real time and distance. The producer of the video likened our sun to a comet with our planets revolving around in a vortex like sprial rather then circle.

And when I looked at the milky way galaxy and where our solar system was I was flabergasted at how tiny we were in relation to sirus, the center sun, and to the milky way galaxy itself. WOW!!!! And it is amazing that there are millions of other galaxies out there that are even bigger so I have been told. why do I bring this up? Well I have been watching and reading so much stuff from everyone to economists, scientists, to political anaylstes, to enviromental “experst”, to free will thinkers and philosphers you name it I have watched or read it. And I got to thinking after all the stuff I disagreed and agreed, I realized something that really puts it all into perspective.

We are incredily tiny, I mean really tiny, we have no idea how tiny we are in relation to all these forces in our world. The sun, sirus, the galaxy, the suns speed thorugh the universe, the distances we can’t even imagine, the powerful forces we can’t see like magnetism, gravity and proton belts and the whole works.

So when I think about all the stuff I have learned, mans attempts to solve the big problems of the world thorugh their ideas, some even using the power of the state (it’s military, police, lawmaking etc) and money I am taken aback at the arrogance we have, some without knowing it, to think we can solve big problems of wars, death, poverty, climate changes, desertification, forest management, water management, injustice, simply by giving power to another group calling themselves government, and using a few tools designed by scientists and researchers like cloud seeding, changing the amount of a trace gas like co2, or controling the weather in ways to avert perceived disasters or population control, increasing buaracracies, and forcing policy and rules on people for the sake of some problem when they don’t even understand the problem, the physics and how everything was designed, and cant even see beyond our own surroundings or know the difference between a truth and a lie, between justice and injustice, or between moral rights and wrongs and are on this planet a short time, and unable to even control our own thoughts very well, how in the name of anything sensible can we think we can do anything to alter these forces when we can’t even keep ourselves from dying or getting sick?

what has possessed even scientists and researchers who can see alot more about the forces of nature then us who can see the design, complexity, and the minimal impact we have on controling them, to even think they can control even the most rudimentary physical laws, let alone a complex system like the earth’s climate, land and water use, and massive problems humans have faced for thousands of years? wouldnt it be prudent to recognize our limitations and the need for something greater than ourselves? wouldnt it be good to humble ourselves and ask for help? Should we not now see the importance of jesus words when he said pray this way (our father in the heavens may your name be santified (hallowed) let your kingdom come, let your will take place as in heaven also upon the earth.)?

what say you?
