Happy New Year to all of you.
Ok guys basically I do not have a 'coherent' blogpost to write. All I have is questions that I would really appreciate if people could answer them for me. but quick question before I go on guys, what color of 'Font' is better for you guys? Yellow? White? Green? Just wanted to know.
As you all know, am the guy who has or probably has an opinon about any issue/topic. But there's one topic that I cannot seem to form an opinion of and that topic is GLOBAL WARMING... I do not know what to believe when it comes to this issue. The two sides for and against the argument make very good points. One side says global warming is 'man-made' and that we need to cut down our emissions and go greener, the other side says global warming is not man-made and that the people promoting global warming just want to profit from it. Now awhile back, it was discovered that a group of scientists were forging data regarding this global warming ish. Does that mean that global warming isn't happening? Nope. Does the forgery prove that the people saying global warming wasn't man-made were right? Nope. It just proves that a couple of men thought that it would be better to mislead the whole world. If not because human beings have gotten smarter, these men would probably have gotten away with the whole forgery. Anywayz, me I think that global warming might be man-made but @ the same time I''m weary about the motives of those who harp on continually about it, Al gore said that in 2015 or so all the ice caps will melt. Now if there is one thing I've come to learn it is this, when people try to get you to do something by fear-mongering, it would be wise for one to take a 2nd and 3rd look on what the person is trying to 'sell' you. A lot of people profit by selling 'fear' and if there is another thing I've learnt it is this, in any major crisis there will always be people who benefit from it.
Oya back to the questions I have, they are all 'religion' related btw... So I would appreciate it if someone could provide me with some answers.
1. The bible says God is an 'unchanging' God.'
Is God an 'unchanging' God and if so, why is it that he 'changed' frm being a merciless God in the Old Testament to now being a merciful God in the New TestamentT?What happened?On the other hand just because he is an unchanging God does not mean that he does not have 'mood-swings' abi?And if so,why does it seem like God has human characteristics?Makes me wonder bout who created who in who's image.Did God create man in his own image?Or did man create God in his own image?
If you guys really think about it, you guys will realise that God seems to have a whole lot of 'human characteristics', am not saying he's not 'real' or he does not exist but the bible might have been 'cooked' a little. The same way these scientists tried to forge data, is the same way religious men will forge stuff also. Men lie all the time.
2.The bible says that the Jewish ppl are the 'chosen/favorite' ppl of God.If God were a man would he not be considered 'prejudicial' against other races?Did he not create all the humans on earth?Why play favoritism with one race?
Now I understand how prejudice/racism entered the world.At the end of the day,I draw the conclusion that people who are prejudicial/racist are not bad people,they are simply 'stunting like their maker'. Btw, there is a difference between being 'prejudicial' and being 'racist'. Just thought that I should point that out.
3. Why does it seem like the only people inspired to write the bible were either 'caucasian/Jewish men'? Why were no black men inspired? Or no asian men? or latino men? Or even women. Why weren't any women inspired by God to write the bible? Aren't women 'inspirable'?? Chai, women have suffered in this life. Blame Eve o.
4. Is the bible the only 'word' of God? Can the Koran be the word of God as well? Why can't there be two 'word' of God? Moreover, the bible is a holy book abi? Why is it a Holy book? Some say it is because it offers 'moral guidance' on how human beings should live their lives. Am I then to conclude that every book that offers 'moral guidance' is a holy book?
These are the questions I have guys, I would kindly appreciate it if anybody could provide solid answers to them.
P.S: Again I am grateful for all of you who follow this blog and read my 'writings'. Started out in September 2009 with my fellow contributors and it's been wonderful. I've met some very good people on here, and no I was not plannin on giving any shoutouts, before I forget somepeople's names like I did last time lol. But what I wanted to say is this, through blogger/blogging I have come to meet people with interesting ideas and people holla @ me on my facebook because they saw my writings on here. And they then share their own blogs with me, and I honestly enjoy reading other people's blogs and cherishing the fact that they've decided to share a lil part of themselves with me. It's a good feeling. Please check out my friend's blog, the babe thinks like me in some ways and I was madly impressed lol. RAYO..
