"Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn't have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves. When someone was so poor that he couldn't afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property. We didn't know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth. We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another. We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don't know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society."
~ John (Fire) Lame Deer Sioux Lakota - 1903-1976
There is no need to try to bring about anarchy; if a government is truly flawed it will destroy itself in due time.
- Philip Musial
It is not enough for a handful of experts to attempt the solution of a problem, to solve it and then to apply it. The restriction of knowledge to an elite group destroys the spirit of society and leads to its intellectual impoverishment.
- Albert Einstein
The political arena leaves one no alternatives, one must be either a dunce or a rogue. --Emma Goldman
There is only one class in the community that thinks more about money than the rich, and that is the poor. The poor can think of nothing else. That is the misery of being poor. --Oscar Wilde
The liberty of man consists solely in this: that he obeys natural laws because he has himself recognized them as such, and not because they have been externally imposed upon him by any extrinsic will whatever, divine or human, collective or individual. --Mikhail Bakunin, God and the State
A democracy cannot be both ignorant and free. --Thomas Jefferson
"Anarchism does not mean bloodshed; it does not mean robbery, arson, etc. These monstrosities are, on the contrary, the characteristic features of capitalism. Anarchism means peace and tranquility to all." --August Spies, Haymarket anarchist
Make yourself sheep and the wolves will eat you.” Benjamin Franklin
“Misunderstanding arising from ignorance breeds fear, and fear remains the greatest enemy of peace.” Lester B. Pearson
We tell lies when we are afraid… afraid of what we don’t know, afraid of what others will think, afraid of what will be found out about us. But every time we tell a lie, the thing that we fear grows stronger.”
“Because we fear the responsibility for our actions, we have allowed ourselves to develop the mentality of slaves. Contrary to the stirring sentiments of the Declaration of Independence, we now pledge "our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor" not to one another for our mutual protection, but to the state, whose actions continue to exploit, despoil, and destroy us.” Butler D. Shaffer
A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.
But you can't focus on things that matter if all you've been is asleep for forty years. Funny how sleep rhymes with sheep. You know.
I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.
Alexander the Great
I love the lambs, not the sheep.
I'm a shepherd, not a sheep, and I've always prided myself on being a leader and not a follower.
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
It never troubles the wolf how many the sheep may be.
It's better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.
Like sheep that get lost nibbling away at the grass because they never look up, we often focus so much on ourselves and our problems that we get lost.
Do you make your own decisions?
or do you follow trends?
form your own opinions?
or have you been convinced?
Have you been conditioned
by society, radio, television
deciding on how you living
and how you spend...
the money that youre getting
and you choose your friends
depending on if they fit in
and conformed like the rest
man that aint really living.
we’re trapped in this rapid consumerism
like that is the new religion
that we’re in
And I think you have to see these companies control you
we dressing like the magazines say that we supposed to
have to have the things and possessions
to be seen to get attention
by the people that we supposed to be close to
look at what we got through.
Credit card debt to convince
everybody that we’ve met
that we’re so cool
They put their names on your tags
and that brand on your chest
you can bet, that they think that they own you
Dont follow our own rules
doing what the television tells us.
Yelling what they sell plus
tell us to be selfish
not thinking for yourselves thus
help us to be helpless
so when the month is over
you gonna wonder were your wealth was
how the hell was we put in this hypnosis
now we just consumers for the rulers that provoked us
to work jobs we dont want
to buy shit we dont need
with money we dont have
just to keep up with the Joneses
We’ve lost who we are
admiring goofy stars
and not the people doing jobs
that affecting our society and how our schools evolve
TV is all “House Wives” and rappers with the newest cars
I’m sick of you niggas rapping about how cool you are
all you groupie women and how big they tits and booties are.
It must me nice, but the hood aint living like movies stars
tryna feed our children teach them to keep them heads up to the stars
you aint really getting that cash and flossin
knowing you soft as a batch of “Baskin Robbins”
your ghetto pass wont get you gas in Harlem
How can you rap about Aston Martins
when half of the planet’s inhabitants starving
or living past the margin
of poverty? its too bazaar
you are all straight lying to the kids
providing them with images of what this life aint really is
when in reality, you was just hired to convince
acquiring the chicks

I’m tired of this shit
im bout to pass out .
Egyptians did not build the Pyramids, the Sphinx, or hieroglyphic writings. Before the Arabs (from the North) invaded that land, a people were already there( Africans). It was the Arab invaders into that land who took claim for something that they did not do. Later, a European invader came and this invader takes the lead in digging stuff up to assist in this massive cover up.
If the Egyptians truly built the Pyramids, the Sphinx, and created the hieroglyphic (ancient) writings, then why are Europeans (and Americans who are descendants) the ones trying to decipher and make sense of them? One would think that the Egyptians of to today would be very adept at doing this.Was it by design that the Aswan Dam was built? This dam backed up the Nile River and created Lake Nasser. Lake Nasser covers an area of over 2000 square miles. It covers over an ancient area called Nubia (Kush). That is over 2000 sq miles of "evidence" covered over. Why would the Egyptian government, in concert with European nations, allow such a thing if it was truly their ancestors who built the things that are now covered over? One would think they would have more "respect" for their ancestors.
Why has Egyptian governments of the past allowed defacing of the Great Sphinx of Giza? Defacement primarily in the nose and lips. Napolean's soldiers used it as target practice. If Egyptian ancestors truly built it, why has the Egyptian government allowed "uncaringly" for this disrespectful desecration of their ancestors handiwork? Or was it their ancestors handiwork?
Why is the Egyptian government so "anal" about what can be seen and photographed? Why is there a subtle dismantling of ancient structures and a hiding of artifacts? I have seen large walls of ancient drawings and hieroglyphs "cemented" or plastered over. Why?
Many people are into UFO cover up. What is a much bigger cover up is what is occurring in Africa.
Scripture - if one believes it - mentions that a Son of Cush (the progenitor of those of African descent) by the name of Nimrod was the first to have kingdoms on the earth. Scripture also teaches that it was the descendants of Cush who were the builders of the FIRST cities and the FIRST to build great towers of stone.
When the European came to what is named by them "America" a people was already here. This is exactly what happened in ancient Egypt (it's ancient name is Kemet). When the Arabs and Europeans came down from the North, a highly cultured and "welcoming" and "trusting" people were already there in that land. They were there for thousands of years. It was their ancestors who built the great Pyramids, the Sphinx and had a form of writing.
If one researches into Arabic (Shemetic) history and European (Japhetic) history there is no evidence of pyramid building. However, if one researches into Nubian (Hametic) history, it is replete with it.
The Great Sphinx of Giza has definite obvious African features. A visit to Egypt today reveals that most "Arab" Egyptians you talk to "on the street" admit that ancient Egyptians (Kemetites) were "African" in appearance. They were descendants of Cush.
Also revealing is that almost all of the ancient drawings show the Pharaoh's and the people as African in appearance. What we see on TV is what they want us to see. Even King Tut is rendered as "Arab" and not "African."
Yet, one can see the "real" King Tut in a back room and he is "Black". Not brown or tan, but Black.
This massive cover that it was the descendants of Cush who built the Pyramids accounts for the many movies and TV programs featuring White people (usually from Britain) and Tarzan and an effort to portray Blacks as stupid, backward, and ignorant and the White man as all knowing and intelligent. Even the Cecil Demille's "The Ten Commandments" featured a largely all White cast.
God forbid if the truth is discovered that it was Black people who built the Pyramids. White people admittedly know that their ancestry did not build them. So, rather than attribute to the people who "really" built them, attribute it to Arabs who were not in the land in those days.
Rather than attribute their building to the descendants of Cush, now the push to attribute their building to aliens from outer space. This in itself shows the disdain and hatred much of the world has for those of African descent.
How can a people be on the earth many thousands of years before Christ NOT contribute anything? We are portrayed as living in jungles and huts. Never associated with "civilization."
This is thievery of the worst sort.
Too, it is interesting that out of the 54 countries in Africa today, only one does not consider itself African. That country is Egypt. It considers itself Arab.
It is all a cover up. A party in this cover up are programs like the History Channel.
Our true history has been covered up and the contributions of our ancestors stolen away from us right in front of our eyes. The land that bred us has been raped and now with AFRICOM just established, there will be no "cultural" Black Africa in 20-25 years. It will be fully "Westernized." All resources taken. (See the United States National Security Council Memorandum 46) nscm/46.
When a people cannot "touch" and identify with their ancestry (like those of European descent can); and when a European mindset is being imposed upon an African brain, problems will occur.
For example, Africans knew nothing about the "European" Christmas or Santa Claus. Now look at us. Many Africans celebrate a "European" mindset, yet Europeans do nothing "Black African."
Admittedly, many African Americans think something is wrong with another African American if he rejects many of the European mindsets. This is because they are so deeply indoctrinated with the European mindset from childhood.
I am convinced that discovery of the truth about who built the Pyramids, Sphinx and hieroglyphics would cause the welling up in pride, unity, and maybe anger (because of the lying and cover up) among people of African descent and an accounting and demand for reparations from those who profited from something that they had nothing to do with.
Such an admission will never come freely. It has to be exposed. The integrity of those of European descent would come into question. This must be protected at all cost.
Truth finds away to be free. This will be uncovered on a very large scale
Treaty of Tripoli
Article 11 reads:
Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen,—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
“The Christian god is a three headed monster, cruel, vengeful, and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this raging, three headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites.”
“What havoc has been made of books through every century of the Christian era? Where are fifty gospels, condemned as spurious by the bull of Pope Gelasius? Where are the forty wagon-loads of Hebrew manuscripts burned in France, by order of another pope, because suspected of heresy? Remember the ‘index expurgatorius’, the inquisition, the stake, the axe, the halter and the guillotine.”
“The bible is not my book and Christianity is not my religion. I could never give assent to the long complicated statements of Christian dogma.”
“My earlier views of the unsoundness of the Christian scheme of salvation and the human origin of the scriptures, have become clearer and stronger with advancing years and I see no reason for thinking I shall ever change them.”
“If we look back into history for the character of the present sects in Christianity, we shall find few that have not in their turns been persecutors, and complainers of persecution. The primitive Christians thought persecution extremely wrong in the Pagans, but practiced it on one another. The first Protestants of the Church of England blamed persecution in the Romish Church, but practiced it upon the Puritans. They found it wrong in Bishops, but fell into the practice themselves both here (England) and in New England.”
“What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not.”
“Among the most detestable villains in history, you could not find one worse than Moses. Here is an order, attributed to ‘God’ to butcher the boys, to massacre the mothers and to debauch and rape the daughters. I would not dare so dishonor my Creator’s name by (attaching) it to this filthy book (the Bible).”
Flight has been the dream of humankind since they watched in awe as birds soared effortlessly through the sky. But, according to accepted history, it wasn't until the 1780s that two Frenchmen achieved lighter-than-air flight when they were lifted into the air in a hot air balloon near Paris. Then powered, heavier-than-air flight became the goal. And although it was theorized that heavier-than-air flight was possible as early as the 13th century, and in the 16th century Leonardo da Vinci designed winged aircraft and a crude kind of helicopter, it wasn't until the Wright brothers made their first successful flights at Kitty Hawk in 1903 that powered flight became a reality.
That's the widely accepted history. Some researchers and a few rogue scientists believe there's evidence to suggest that humans achieved flight earlier in history - much earlier... so early, they say, that the knowledge of this technology has been lost and ancient stories that recount adventures of human flight have been relegated only to myth.
Is it possible that humans developed the technology to fly in early civilizations - or in civilizations that are now lost to history? Let's take a look at what some call the evidence - intriguing artifacts, carvings, inscriptions and legends - that they say point to the true record human of flight.
This object (shown in sketch) was found in 1898 in a tomb at Saqquara, Egypt and was later dated as having been created near 200 BCE. As airplanes were unknown in the days when it was found, it was thrown into a box marked "wooden bird model" and then stored in the basement of the Cairo museum.
It was rediscovered by Dr. Khalil Messiha, who studied models made by ancients. The "discovery" was considered so important by the Egyptian government that a special committee of leading scientists was established to study the object.
To elucidate the reasons for the decision of the committee, almost unprecedented in the field of archeology, let's consider some aspects of the model. The model has the exact proportions of a very advanced form of "pusher-glider" that is still having "some bugs ironed out". This type of glider will stay in the air almost by itself—even a very small engine will keep it going at low speeds, as low as 45 to 65 mph., while it can carry an enormous payload. This ability is dependent on the curious shape of wings and their proportions. The tipping of wings downward, a reversedihedral wing as it is called, is the feature behind this capability. A similar type of curving wings are implemented on the Concorde airplane, giving the plane a maximum lift without detracting from its speed.
In that context, it seems rather incredible that someone, more than 2,000 years ago, for any reason, devised a model of a flying device with such advanced features, requiring quite extensive knowledge of aerodynamics. There were no such things as airplanes in these times, we are told by archeologists and historians. But this case seems to be an exception, living in the midst of the rather unimaginative and rigid paradigm of contemporary science. It is also necessary to point out that Egyptians are known to have nearly always made scale-models of projects and objects which they planned to create or build.
Whatever this object is supposed to be or represent,
its remarkable resemblance to a modern aircraft or spacecraft is uncanny.
As seen from the pictures, the shape of the sample object is rather ambiguous. The archaeologists labelled these objects as zoomorphic, meaning,animal shaped objects. The question is, what animal do they represent? When we compare these with other objects from the same cultures depicting animals, a curious facet of the comparison would be obvious: the other objects are recognizable, rendered usually with a great accuracy and attention to realistic detail
The so-called "Rama Empire" of Northern India and Pakistan developed at least fifteen thousand years ago on the Indian sub-continent and was a nation of many large, sophisticated cities, many of which are still to be found in the deserts of Pakistan, northern, and western India. Rama existed, apparently, parallel to the Atlantean civilization in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, and was ruled by "enlightened Priest-Kings" who governed the cities, The seven greatest capital cities of Rama were known in classical Hindu texts as "The Seven Rishi Cities."
According to ancient Indian texts, the people had flying machines which were called "Vimanas." The ancient Indian epic describes a Vimana as a double-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome, much as we would imagine a flying saucer.
It flew with the "speed of the wind" and gave forth a "melodious sound." There were at least four different types of Vimanas; some saucer shaped, others like long cylinders ("cigar shaped airships"). The ancient Indian texts on Vimanas are so numerous, it would take volumes to relate what they had to say. The ancient Indians, who manufactured these ships themselves, wrote entire flight manuals on the control of the various types of Vimanas, many of which are still in existence, and some have even been translated into English.
The Samara Sutradhara is a scientific treatise dealing with every possible angle of air travel in a Vimana. There are 230 stanzas dealing with the construction, take-off, cruising for thousand of miles, normal and forced landings, and even possible collisions with birds. In 1875, the Vaimanika Sastra, a fourth century B.C. text written by Bharadvajy the Wise, using even older texts as his source, was rediscovered in a temple in India. It dealt with the operation of Vimanas and included information on the steering, precautions for long flights, protection of the airships from storms and lightening and how to switch the drive to "solar energy" from a free energy source which sounds like "anti-gravity."
The Vaimanika Sastra (or Vymaanika-Shaastra) has eight chapters with diagrams, describing three types of aircraft, including apparatuses that could neither catch on fire nor break. It also mentions 31 essential parts of these vehicles and 16 materials from which they are constructed, which absorb light and heat; for which reason they were considered suitable for the construction of Vimanas. This document has been translated into English and is available by writing the publisher: VYMAANIDASHAASTRA AERONAUTICS by Maharishi Bharadwaaja, translated into English and edited, printed and published by Mr. G. R. Josyer, Mysore, India, 1979 (sorry, no street address). Mr. Josyer is the director of the International Academy of Sanskrit Investigation located in Mysore.
There seems to be no doubt that Vimanas were powered by some sort of "anti-gravity." Vimanas took off vertically, and were capable of hovering in the sky, like a modern helicopter or dirigible. Bharadvajy the Wise refers to no less than 70 authorities and 10 experts of air travel in antiquity. These sources are now lost.
Ancient advanced civilizations?
Does anone know anything about them?
Do you have any idea that we have found an ancient civilization located on an island is athens greece that match the discription of the lost city of atlantis.Do you have any idea that there houses look much like our houses today? The ancient civilizations is known to date back to the bronze age 2500 bc payramid days..
If we thought the Egyptains were strange just try to get a grip on some of the stuff they found in other parts of the world.
This stuff is not make up or fiction.This is REAL life these things are being found but that I find so sad is that no one seams to care or even know anything about this.
Are we really so envolved in our everyday crap,our adult swin,our internet that we dont even see the amazing evidence that we are not as smart as we once were.
were talking really smart people.Now I know "some" people might say thats nonsence look at what we have have now compared to them we have the tv! or we have interent were much smarter.
Really? how about you do a search on solar flares..in a matter of hours this can all be taken away from us and it just so happens the sun is going to be doing the taking.Very ironic if you ask me that so many people from our history point to the sun as being what gives us life.
Maybe people fom our history were trying to warn us about what these very things.Maybe they knew that the way we live is just not fitting with the way the universe wants to work.
Trust me, the evidence is overwelming!
just check this out:
"More recent was the discovery of what some believe to be an ancient Egyptian model glider found in a 2,000-year-old tomb.Former NASA contractee William Corliss calls the scale model 'a very advanced form of what is called a push-glider'. Corliss says the 'plane' would have glided on the air much like modern gliders, and would have required immense aeronautical and mathematical precision. Scientists who have studied the model suggest that its proportions and design would indeed have enabled it to fly."
this is only one peice of evidence within an hour of doing some research on the topic you wil be shocked and amazed!!
But we were the first? were the smartest? anyone see a trend in our history?
It is an archaeological fact that there are more than 200 known sunken cities in the Mediterranean. Egyptian civilization, along with the Minoan and Mycenean in Crete and Greece are, in theory, remnants of this great, ancient culture. The civilization built huge earthquake-proof megalithic structures and had electricity and other conveniences common during the time of Atlantis. Like Atlantis and Rama, they had airships and other modes of transport, often electrical in nature. The mysterious cart tracks of Malta, which go over cliffs and under water, may well be part of some ancient Osirian tram-line, possibly taking quarried stone to cities that are now submerged.
3. RAMA EMPIRE OF INDIA
Fortunately, the ancient books of India's Rama Empire have been preserved, unlike those of China, Egypt, Central America, Peru. Many of these ancient nations are now either desert wastelands, swallowed by thick jungle or literally at the bottom of some ocean. Yet India, despite devastation by wars and invasion, managed to maintain a large part of its ancient history.
For a long time, Indian civilization was not believed to date from much earlier than about 500 B.C., only about 200 years prior to Alexander the Great's invasion of the subcontinent. In the past century, however, the extremely sophisticated cities of Mohenjo Daro (Mound of the Dead) and Harappa have been discovered in the Indus Valley of modern-day Pakistan.
The discoveries of these cities forced archaeologists to push the dates for the origin of Indian civilization back thousands of years. A wonder to modern-day researchers, the cities were highly developed and caused leading archaeologists to believe that they were conceived as a whole before they were built: a remarkable early example of city planning. Even more remarkable is that the plumbing-sewage system throughout the large city is superior to that found in Pakistan, India, and most Asian countries today.
Are you going to deny ignroance? or be like sheep who follow and don't ask questions!!
I find it heartbreaking that apon a google search for these places I would get more hits on paris hilton or brittany spears than I would about things that matter!
They want to tell us that for 90 million years we were just walking around with sticks..doing I guess nothing.
And we just all of a sudden gained this knowledge within the last 30 years? yet history and much evidence points to the fact that we ARE not smarter than we have ever been.
Is anyone else starting to think maybe that was umm? a lie?
I really hope so.
Albert Einstein once said: “If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live. No more bees, no more pollination … no more men!”
Now Albert Einstein was not a Entomologist, but entomologists today say its causing them and the world a huge problem.
Has anyone else ever noticed that bee stings have became less and less?
I cant remember the last time a kid got stung but a bee or myself for that matter,
but the decline in honeybee populations in the U.S. and elsewhere signals a major environmental imbalance that could have far wrose implications for our agricultural food supply.
" in 24 states around the U.S. have bubbled up to the surface, over the last year and a half, but hardly any large-scale media attention has been drawn to this potentially serious problem"
Brought here from Europe in the 1600s, honeybees have become widespread across North America and are bred commercially for their abilities to produce honey and pollinate crops—90 different farm-grown foods, including many fruits and nuts, depend on honeybees. But in recent years honeybee populations across the continent have plummeted by as much as 70 percent, and biologists are still scratching their heads as to why and what to do about the problem which they have termed
" colony collapse disorder"
Recently bees have gone missing from hives around Europe as well. The East Coast of the U.S. is reporting a 70% loss in commercial bee hive habitation, the West Coast 60%; these figures are staggering.
It might not seam like a lot to some people..however trust me it is..and if we don't figure out what is causing this we could be in for some major problems for man kind.
Chemicals May Be Killing the Honeybees
Many believe that our increasing use of chemical pesticides and herbicides, which honeybees ingest during their daily pollination rounds, are largely to blame. Commercial beehives are also subjected to direct chemical fumigation at regular intervals to ward off destructive mites. Another leading suspect is genetically modified crops,which may generate pollen with compromised
Radiation May Push Honeybees Off Course
Bee populations may also be vulnerable to other factors, such as the recent increase in atmospheric electromagnetic radiation as a result of growing numbers of cell phones and wireless communication towers. The increased radiation given off by such devices may interfere with bees’ ability to navigate. A small study at Germany’s Landau University found that bees would not return to their hives when mobile phones were placed nearby. Further research is currently underway in the U.S. to determine the extent of such radiation-related phenomena on bees and other insect populations.
Global Warming May Be Partly to Blame for Honeybee Deaths
Biologists also wonder if Global warming may be exaggerating the growth rates of pathogens such as the mites, viruses and fungi that are known to take their toll on bee colonies. The unusual hot-and-cold winter weather fluctuations in recent years, also blamed on global warming, may also be wreaking havoc on bee populations accustomed to more consistent seasonal weather patterns.
help save the bees..no bees = no man kind
buy some ice cream and save the honey bee!!!!
click this link and find out how you can help!
build your own hive in your yard and help save the bees!!
Change to honey mixed alcoholic drinks..one of my fav drinks is called
evan williams honey..and dundee honey brown
buying honey might just help save the bees!!
Honey bees are disappearing. Given the vital role of the honey bee in not only our food supply but also the economy, Dundee Brewing Co. has initiated its Dundee “Save the Honey Bee Program.” In 2008, a portion of every Dundee beer sold in the U.S. will be donated to the Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees. “Dundee Honey Brown -- the Dundee flagship brand -- is made with natural honey, making the plight of the honey bee a real cause for concern for us,” said Patrick Magallanes, V.P., Marketing, Dundee Brewing Co.
Dundee is supporting the “Save the Honey Bee Program” with a full range of P.O.S. materials designed to raise money and drive awareness.
so you still feel the need to help save the honey bee?
well here are some more steps you can take in your own home!
OLD FASHIONED IS BEST!
- allow a patch of lawn to grow, only mowing twice during the year (early and at the end of the season). Wait and see what comes up.
- sow seeds, or buy potted wildflowers (some may be difficult to establish otherwise).
- many grassy areas will not convert easily to meadow, because of resilient grasses that prevent wildflowers establishing themselves. If this is the case for you, sow a wildflower that is parasitic on tough grasses such as Yellow Rattle, which is loved by bees, and will out-compete the grass.
Neonicotinoid and systemic pesticides are used in agriculture on food crops - and these of course, end up on the shelves of supermarkets.
Perhaps now is the time to start growing your own pesticide-free fruit & veg? You'll be surprised just how many corgettes and green beans you can grow - even in a few pots outside!
If you cannot grow your own, then try to select as much organic produce as you can when you are buying your shopping.
When you spend your cash, you cast a vote.
If you buy at least some organic produce, your purchases, along with those of others, will send a signal to retailers, which will ultimately send a signal to farmers.
It's as simple as that!
Or....You could also make a suggestion to Fubar..to maybe donate a percent of proceeds from the honey bee bling gets donated to the Save the honey bee fund!!!!
"By heaven furnished with paths;" (Surat adh-Dhariyat, 7)
The Arabic word "alhubuki," translated as "furnished with paths" in verse 7 of Surat adh-Dhariyat, comes from the verb "hubeke," meaning "to weave closely, to knit, to bind together." The use of this word in the verse is particularly wise and represents the current state of scientific knowledge in two aspects.
The first is this: The orbits and paths in the universe are so dense and intertwined that they constitute intersecting paths, just like the threads in a piece of fabric. The Solar System we live in is made up of the Sun, the planets and their satellites and heavenly objects in constant motion such as meteors and comets. The Solar System moves through the galaxy known as the Milky Way, which contains 400 billion stars. It is estimated that there are billions of galaxies. Celestial bodies and systems revolving at speeds of thousands of kilometers an hour move through space without colliding with one another.
The science of astronomy was developed with the aim of mapping the positions and courses of stars, while astro-mechanics was developed in order to determine these complex motions. Astronomers used to assume that orbits were perfectly spherical. The fact is, however, that heavenly bodies are known to follow mathematical shapes, such as spherical, elliptical, parabolic or hyperbolic orbits. Dr. Carlo Rovelli of the University of Pittsburgh says, "Our space in which we live is just this enormously complicated spin network."
The second aspect is that the description in the Qur'an of the sky using a word meaning "woven" may be a reference to the String Theory of physics. (Allah knows the truth.) According to this theory, the basic elements that comprise the universe are not point-like particles, but strings resembling miniature violin strings. These tiny, identical and one dimensional strings oscillating in the form of filaments are regarded as being like loops in appearance. It is assumed that the origin of all the diversity in the universe lies in the way these strings vibrate at different vibrations, in the same way that violin strings produce different sounds with different vibrations.
Although it is not possible to see the size of the threads in the String Theory, the only theory to bring theories such as Einstein's theory of general relativity and quantum mechanics together in a coherent way, it can still be calculated mathematically. These strings, which scientists regard as the material from which space and time are woven, are just 1.6x10-35 m (0.000000000000000000000000000000000016 meters) in size. This, known as Plank's length, is the smallest known, being just 10-20 of the protons that make up the nucleus of that atom. If an atom were to be magnified to the size of the Solar System, each one of these strings would be no bigger than a tree. 7 Bearing in mind that an atom is 100,000 times smaller than the smallest thing that can be seen with the naked eye, the minute scale of these strings can be more easily grasped.
Professor of Physics Abhay Ashtekar from the University of Pennsylvania and Professor of Physics Jerzy Lewandowski from the University of Warsaw interpret the woven appearance of space as follows in an article titled "Space and Time Beyond Einstein":
In this theory, Einstein wove the gravitational field into the very fabric of space and time... The continuum we are all used to is only an approximation. Perhaps the simplest way to visualize these ideas is to look at a piece of fabric. For all practical purposes, it represents a 2-dimensional continuum; yet it is really woven by 1-dimensional threads. The same is true of the fabric of space-time. It is only because the "quantum threads" which weave this fabric are tightly woven in the region of the universe we inhabit that we perceive a continuum. Upon intersection with a surface, each thread, or polymer excitation, endows it with a tiny "Plank quantum" of area of about 10-66 cm2. So an area of 100 cm2 has about 1068 such intersections; because the number is so huge, the intersections are very closely spaced and we have the illusion of a continuum.
An Article in the New York Times seeking an answer to the question "How Was the Universe Built?" contained the following lines:
Even the tiny quarks that make up protons, neutrons and other particles are too big to feel the bumps that may exist on the Planck scale. More recently, though, physicists have suggested that quarks and everything else are made of far tinier objects: superstrings vibrating in 10 dimensions. At the Planck level, the weave of space-time would be as apparent as when the finest Egyptian cotton is viewed under a magnifying glass, exposing the warp and woof.
[44:9] Indeed, they are doubtful, heedless.
[44:10] Therefore, watch for the day when the sky brings a profound smoke.
[44:11] It will envelope the people; this is a painful retribution.
[44:12] "Our Lord, relieve this retribution for us; we are believers."
[44:13] Now that it is too late, they remember! An enlightening messenger had come to them.
[44:14] But they turned away from him, saying, "Well educated, but crazy!"
[44:15] We will relieve the retribution for awhile; you will soon revert.
[44:16] The day we strike the big stroke, we will avenge.
Taken from the QURAN
And [I swear by] the moon when it is full, you will mount up stage by stage! What is the matter with them, that they have no faith? (Qur'an, 84:18-20)
