“Man is such a BROKEN thing. And THROUGH man.., so to are HIS GODS NOW BROKEN”
“A statement on a papyrus fragment isn’t proof of anything. It’s nothing more than a statement ‘in thin air’, without substantial context.” ..Jim West, a professor and Baptist pastor in Tennessee !’Wife of Jesus’ reference in Coptic 4th Century script
..Yet it is this ancient form of “cut & paste scrapbooking” that has provided the basis for the majority of modern Faiths and Beliefs.
One wonders.. or maybe I alone wonder, how those very bits and pieces left on the editors floor would have shaped our world, and our view not only of ourselves but of our own significance.. in it.
What of these faiths which profess to be the truths set to all men?

The inevitability of history, is that it will not Judge you kindly- nor will it soften you erasure… More likely it will chisel out all but your existence, relegating you to but a ,footnote*, in the record of men.
History’s judgments may provide but a measure of kindness, Only in such that it obscures men’s darknesses- eventually leaving no witness… nor victim… to testify.~Kem Shahol

“Removing Race From the Equation “
the term “racial discrimination” shall mean any distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic,social, cultural or any other field of public life. ‘
Racism is undoubtedly considered by some to be the most taboo of subjects, By others it is the focal that defines and explains both successes and failures.Regardless it is an ADHERENCE to PRECEPT which plagues society, lending itself to the creation of, and as a CULTURAL PHENOMENON MANIFEST in western society by a SUDO-TRIBALISM promoting NEO-THEOLOGIES, furthering not only SOCIETAL but SELF DISCRIMINATION and EXPLOITATION…
The previous post Change in America!(Can we?) though having received few comments, has supplied me with a seemingly never ending chain of emails, the majority of which has garnered me a great deal of support from both sides of the divide, While many others offered such enlightening comments, the basis of which was to suggest my ignorance in the matter of race, (obviously they have not read many of my other post) Yet it has been, the recent nomination of Democratic 2008 Presidential hopeful Barack Obama that has forced RACISM in the U.S. to the forefront of both RHETORIC and DEBATE. Interestingly it was during the period that Mr. Obama sought the nomination of his chosen party that it became necessary for him to address the most disconcerting of charges ,Is he “BLACK ENOUGH?” Can he who is of DIRECT descent accurately represent the descendant AFRO-AMERICAN population? But what of QUALIFICATION and MERIT? Race once removed from the equation only leaves qualification…
The above example serves serves as a microcosm of our attitudes and ignorance, but also our progression….
Like every form of determinism, racism invalidates the specific attribute which distinguishes man from all other living species: his rational faculty.~ Ayn Rand
