Jiddu Krishnamurti “Freedom from the known” is a hand-book meant to transform the human life by projecting the mistakes humans are committing, in various fields of social, political, religious, personal and relationships.

Krishnamurti has focused on changing the perspective or thinking of an individual. We mostly live our life based on old beliefs, ideals, truth, circumstances, past experiences and common sayings. We mostly suffer because we try to find the solutions of fresh problems in old books, scriptures, thoughts, and beliefs. It is to be noted that for new problems, there is always a fresh solution. To get solutions, we need to change our perspectives by interpreting the various dimensions of a particular problem. For Krishnamurti, faith is righteous until it supports you in growing. In case, it is pulling you back, and causing a hindrance towards your spiritual goals, then there is no usage of keeping old faith.

Even the Israeli teenager that trolls here under a dozen handles, have at it. I would actually welcome a Jew to explain how he sees his religion in 2021.

I’m a big fan of E. Michael Jones. I only wish that “Argumentum Ad Exasperated Tone of Voice” was a legitimate debating technique, so then his constant use of false dilemma fallacies would still hold water because he said it with the right vocal inflection, “there are only TWO choices, the City of God or the City of Man! This is obviously true because of my tone of voice!”

Back in the day, the Jews used to desperately try to join the growing “white movement” online. I remember a particularly obnoxious Jew who went by the handle “Guy White.” His big thing was, “n-word this, n-word that, don’t we all hate black people so much! My Fellow Whites we must stamp…

The Christian And Racism: The Urgent Need For Good Samaritans In A Racially Intolerant world!

14 Dec

Xenophobia, hatred and racism words written with blocks on red background (All Bible quotations, except otherwise stated, are from the New International Version). Racism is defined as the prejudicial perception that members of one race are intrinsically superior to members of other races. It can also be considered as discriminatory or abusive behaviour towards members […]

A church has a rat problem

The church doesn’t want to kill the rats so they trap them and release them far away, but the next day they are back.

Next they try ask them politely to leave, still they won’t budge.

Finally the priest has one last idea, he baptized all the rats.

Now they only come at Christmas and Easter.

 man walked into a bar. He sat down and asked the bar tender “If I impress you, can I have a free drink?”. The bar tender said sure, so the man reached in his pocket and pulled out a tiny piano. He then pulled out a small rat and set it by the piano. It crawled on to the bench and began playing

music. The bar tender was amazed, so he gave the man a beer. Next, the man said “If I impress you even more, can I have free drinks for life?”. The bar tender didn’t think it was possible, so he agreed. The man pulled a frog out of his pocket, and it began to sing by the piano. The bar tender smiled and told the man that he was impressed. A man in a suit with a cane walked into the bar, saw the small animals, and offered to buy them for $2 million. The owner said no, but he offered to sell the frog for $500k. The rich man agreed, took the frog, and left. The bar tender couldn’t believe the owner just did that and said “Why did you just sell the frog?! There is no singing now!”. The owner laughed and said “Don’t worry; the rat is a ventriloquist!”.



Two professors of economics were walking down a road when they saw a dead rat.

The older one said – “If you eat this, I’ll pay you ₹10,000”. The younger one makes a quick cost-benefit analysis and finally eats the rat.



The younger professor experiences a bad after-taste and wants the older professor to experience the same. When he sees another dead rat on the road, he dares the professor to eat it in exchange for the old ₹10,000. The senior professor, eager to recover his reckless bet, eats it.



After a few minutes of walking silently, the younger professor finally says – “Looks like we’ve been eating dead rats for free.”



The older professor remarks, “But don’t forget we just added ₹ 20,000 to the GDP!”

RATS!
