The Coming Ice Age!!!!

I just watched a program called In Search Of... from 1978 that focused on the scientific consensus at the time that the earth was entering a new ice age. Suggestions are thrown out to use nuclear weapons and special sunlight absorbing materials to melt the polar ice caps to prevent the ice age that would come "within one lifetime!" Thirty years later the same damn scientists are claming that there is global warming and on 15 August 2009 all life will spontaneously combust from global warming! (see the countdown clock on the Church of Global Warming page.)

The Mahasamadhi of Adi Da Samraj

I have just learned that Adi Da Samraj, great spiritual master and possible Avatar (depending on who you ask), has had his Mahasamadhi on 27 November. While I would say his realization was not in doubt thee were some other issues, leading eventually to his seclusion on the island of Naitauba in Fiji. Following is a tribute to Adi Da provided by Dattatreya Siva Baba on 8 December.

Jesus in India

I just saw the documentary Jesus in India, which examins the evidence that Jesus visited India during the 18 years of his life missing from the Gospels. While very good the producers made out on Coast to Coast AM the other night that whoever sees this program should be totally convinced that Jesus visited India after watching it. The documentary mainly consisted of interviews of people in the west saying that a document in a Buddhist monestary, The Life of Saint Issa, that was discovered by Nicolas Notovitch in 1894 is a fake and getting very angry for even bringing it up, and then there were people in India saying absolutely it's real but copies have to be protected so it can't be shown to anyone. Starting out as someone who already believes Jesus visited India I can say I am pleased that someone actually made a documentary dealing with the topic. However, watching this documentary is not likely to change anyone's opinions regarding the topic. Maybe the extra 80 minutes of footage on the DVD say something more convincing, but I don't yet know. If I can get my hands on a copy of the DVD I'll let you know how convincing or not it is.

Seeing Perfection in the Process

Toward the Ideal Society.

An integral vision of the Kalipolis as described in Book II of Plato's Republic. A society where everyone works according to their talents and lives their passions, all the while engaging others in a global network of similar ideal societies.

Watch me say "et cetera" more times than I will bother to count!
