To all religious nut jobs in the U.S.

Before I elaborate: Yes, I am an atheist. In no way do I buy into any of the tripe fed to the masses in various texts which only serve the purpose of keeping large groups of people at each other's throats. /exhale

First, what on Earth gives you the "divine power", or right, to interpret how your God views the value of a life. Yes, this is about the whole Schiavo fiasco. Seriously though. How could anyone hide behind the guise of religion, which has been twisted beyond all rationale over the millennia, in order to determine what a human life is worth on a moral scale and still expect to be taken seriously by people who see through that variety mist? This sort of Puritan influence on your society's moral compass is sickening, even worse, perplexing. Suffering throughout life is not a rite of passage into some ethereal cloudy place after we cease to exist. Take your downtrodden life, which is further deteriorated by a severe case of tunnel vision, and shove it already.

Secondly, why do folks on one side of this fence get so utterly enraged when a person points out that Jesus Christ chose to end his own life too? Is it because he wanted to suffer and Mrs. Schiavo wants to end her suffering? (Sorry, not buying any of the propaganda coming from either side as to what her wishes are. I'm sticking the with original story that she just wants to end the pain.) So, let me get this straight, it's alright if someone wants to suffer as long as it is under the "moral umbrella" of it being for everyone's benefit? But, a mere cripple who seeks to end her suffering, because of an unfortunate turn of events in life, is deemed "not of a right-mind" and that decision shouldn't be up to that individual just... because? Because it says so in, or on, your handy-dandy pocket Bible, Torah, Qur'an, McDonald's placemat, etc, etc?

This calls for a serious WTF. Is it not bad enough that one can barely turn on the television without being force fed some ideologue's manifesto for a utopia? Apparently not, because we get doused with this Schiavo stuff around the clock. Meanwhile, something really important, that will probably have a direct effect on us ALL, is most likely taking place. What is happening you ask? How the heck am I supposed to know with all of this crap filling up the newswire! Then again, that is the point of it all.

On second thought, I don't care. I've wasted my time on this post. Lesson learned.

The new head of the World Bank is?

Paul "I'm the secret evil behind President Bush" Wolfowitz, a noted neo-conservative who should have close attention paid to his every move by all U.S. citizens.

I'm not going to really get into all of the sorted details of this guy's past. I'll briefly lay out how much of a snake this man is though.

It has to have been at least 20 to 25 years ago that Paul Wolfowitz started to authoring the "Bush Doctrine" as we know it today. Donald Rumsfeld is credited with advancing that policy in recent years, but only because his name was stamped on a modernized version. Don't be fooled though, Paul Wolfowitz is the man responsible for the present day preemptive strike mentality. It was supposed to be implemented during Reagan's second term. Then, it was going to be put into action around the time Bush I started spewing his infamous "New World Order" phrase.

For eight years, during the Clinton administration, this doctrine sat in a desk. Finally, in 2000, these Hawks were able to unleash their "master plan" on the world. They take an old, staunch view of how to settle disputes and what the inherent result might be. When looking at this through the eyes of Galton (that's Francis Galton), who is a key figure in how the structure of this country's society is built, one is led to believe that the only way to evolve as a country/people is through conflict. This sort of thinking brings you the ideological struggle in the Middle East.

The most frightening thing about Wolfowitz's appointment as World Bank chief is that the dollar is losing it's value at an alarming rate. A shocking, horrific, terrible, etc, etc, rate. With the enormous power that the World Bank wields on the financial landscape, the U.S. economy could be in major trouble with a nut like this at it's helm.

Dr. Eugene Mallove 1947 - 2004

Eugene Mallove, a name most people will never hear. Though, names with the significance of his should be shouted from hilltops all across this country. Pioneering in alternative energy, he was recognized as one of the most prominent Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions researchers (Hydrino physics aka "cold fusion") on the planet. Believing he was only months away from seeing an actual free-energy device unveiled to the world, Eugene wrote a letter to his good friend Richard C. Hoagland. In that letter, he addressed the world with promising news of what he had hoped would soon could become an Earth-shattering development in how we live our everyday lives.

Unfortunately for us, the world, Eugene was murdered in his Connecticut home last year. The police have ruled it a homicide, due to a botched robbery attempt. The latter part being their best "guess". At the time Eugene was killed, he was moving out of his house and preparing to sell. There was nothing in the house to be stolen. Instead, something far greater was taken from us all and no questions were asked. At least not by anyone with a loud enough voice as to make a difference. The most popular late night radio show, Coast to Coast, which reaches 10 million listeners a night all across the world, has attempted to make Dr. Mallove's plight known. However, it seems, as the morning sun rises all is forgotten by the rest of the world. Sure, lots of people like me know who Dr. Mallove was, and what he was working towards, but in what does that result? Being in the consciousness of a subdued minority won't make whatever he was working on magically appear on the market.

Dr. Mallove isn't the only person of his stature who has met such an unfortunate and untimely death. Since 1994, over 50 of the world's leading scientists, in trail-blazing fields, have died under suspicious circumstances. No one hears about them, save in a tiny 30 second spot on their local evening news or an unworthy obituary in the weekend paper. Many scientists whom I have met over the years are so spooked by these events that it grows more doubtful, by the day, that anyone will ever openly admit to being so close to something which would liberate much of the burden on our civilization. And if they do, well, look what happens in many cases.

In the end we, as human beings, have lost the most as a result of this tragedy. Despite the joy that it would've brought Eugene to see a free energy source sweep over the planet, it would've meant so much more to billions of people. We stay the course, though traversing it all more silently than in years past, because one of us will eventually break through the tangled web they weave.

The measurement of a civilization

Before reading further, try to answer the following question: If there were a scoreboard for all of the "advanced" civilizations in the Universe, what would the point system be based off?

The species total wealth, civic nature, military strength? Nope, none of those. Simply put, the only real way to measure advanced civilizations are by their energy production and space travel capabilities. How far they can go, at what speed, dimensional travel, and even time travel. How much, and what type, of energy can be harnessed and used by a civilization. All of those lumped into one make up the determining factor for where a civilization ranks on a Universal scale.

Here are the types of civilizations as put forth by physicist Nikolai Kardashev in 1964:

Type I – a civilization that controls the energy resources of an entire planet. This civilization can control the weather, prevent earthquakes, mine deep in the [home planet's] crust, and harvest the oceans. This civilization has already completed the exploration of its solar system..

Type II – a civilization that harnesses the energy output of a star, and generates about 10 billion times the energy output of a Type I civilization. This does not mean passively[solar panels] harnessing solar energy; this civilization mines the sun. The energy needs of this civilization are so large that it directly consumes the power of the sun to drive its machines. This civilization will begin the colonization of local star systems.

Type III – a civilization that harnesses the energy output of a galaxy, or about 10 billion times the energy output of a Type II civilization.

Folks, if we were to follow the above model (and we should because no one has put forth a better one to this day), this civilization we live in today wouldn't even come close to being a Type 1. In fact, and i'm being serious here, we're much closer to a Type -5 civilization. Of course, this is all under the assumption that we take only the technology that isn't hidden in some secret mountain base or in some power elite's garage and measure it on the scale above.

Alright, now that we've answered the question, we get to ask another one. What in the world is stopping us from climbing that scoreboard at a much quicker pace? Seriously, we've been relegated to land tortoise speed in terms of how fast our space/energy technology has advanced in the view of the public. We're still sending the same tin cans up into space, only now they're held together by something stronger than duct tape. People still huddle around some sort of modern day equivilant to a campfire when cold weather is about. That's a real good achievement, if the people responsible were say, being forced to wear helmets with goofy chin straps as they get shuttled to work on a short yellow school bus every day, considering how much we've progressed with our technology over the past 15 thousand years. Perhaps it's better stated as: how much we have perceived our own technology to progress? Yes, I think I should phrase it that way.

Is it not ludicrous to think that we haven't returned to the Moon, or even set foot on Mars, by now? Or that we have we haven't figured out a way to pull an near infinite amount of energy from the ionosphere? Perhaps even a zero point (vaccum) energy platform? The shocking thing about new technologies, like those which were just mentioned, is that they aren't even close to being far-fetched.

If we look at the rate that our everyday technology (computers, cell phones, digital media, etc) advances, one would have to be an absolute moron to not think that the same rate of development wouldn't apply to new energy sources and space travel. In fact, one could argue that it should move along quicker. Two areas as important as that with no real publically acknowledged advancements, it just doesn't seem like everything being presented to the people of this earth is on the level, now does it?

We can delve into this specific topic later. I just wanted to get the ball rolling and give an idea as to what some of the subject matter posted here shall be in the future. If you don't like this sort of thing, there might be one empty seat on that short bus I was writing about earlier. Better hurry though, I hear those seats fill up fast!
